MLB Home Run Derby VR will go for $19.99 on retailstores
Most of all, the patch dealt with a chief compaint by avid online gamers. The PCI (plate coverage index ), used when hitting to try and square up the pitch, was not reacting correctly as MLB The Show 18 Stubs had in prior editions of The Show. Many players proved the PCI would proceed on its own for no apparent reason, causing a lot of frustrating popups and ground balls that, using an accurate PCI system, would be line pushes or home runs.
Additionally, players were angry with how slow down the pitches appeared coming in, especially in contrast to previous year's games. Flamethrowers such as Aroldis Chapman and Craig Kimbrel were basically ineffective because of fastballs looking like frisbees coming in. It seems that the developers were listening to their consumers. Here are the official gameplay patch notes from TheShowNation and SDS.
Greater pitch rates within Diamond Dynasty (both Head to Head and Versus CPU games). Repair for a rare event in which the outfielder wouldn't play a grab (or run across the ball) on ardently hit ground balls that get through the infield. Adjustments designed to allow more user management for infielders on gentle line drives only above their head. This allows users to break out and MLB the show stubs run to your ball, when they sometimes felt locked in. Fix to get a rare issue where the catcher would come out of his cover position (covering home), not allowing branching cries to the plate when a runner is attempting to score.
In addition to the gameplay fixes, SDS put out new content for Diamond Dynasty. All-Star Legend Darin Erstad (90 total ) will be the May ranked seasons reward. He can be earned by climbing the leaderboard into World Series degree (900 rank or greater ) in rated seasons. Two new flashbacks, Greg Holland and Ichiro Suzuki also are making their way to the match. Both of these cards could be got by going 12-0 in battle royale. Of course, each one these cards will eventually be available for purchase on the current market, but Erstad won't be available until June 1.
