    They seemed to nerf just pressing l2 and letting your runner steal on his own. May be more timing based now but I’m not really sure. 99spd guys can’t just steal at will

    Yea its not worth even trying. I do it sometimes if the guy is clearly not checking me at all and I can get 2 steps off 1b but that's it.

    against CPU or PvP?

    against CPU is definitely a lot harder than last year You basically have to time taking a second step to the delivery and hope you don’t get picked off. Definitely nothing like pre-bug fix when everyone with a speed over 80 got a free pass to third.

    I’ve never gotten the mechanics down right for stealing PvP against someone using a slide step though

    Both, I never really ever tried to steal against the cpu. I stole quite a bit online last year but to be honest I have no clue how. I kind of mashed some buttons and sometimes they went and others they stayed.

    There’s a mini season glitch thats after the World Series where you restart and receive an exception error. Results in starting your next mini season with a record of 6-1.

    I’m up to 470k for Program XP, what a damn grind. Ended up buying Vladdy to complete the AL Live Series, back up to 60k in stubs. Slow and steady and painful.

    This animation where my infielder dives and makes the stop then gets up and runs 3-4 steps before throwing is driving me nuts.

    If you click Triangle/Y on a player to view their card, go to parallel and most stats will be shown under “Earn Parallel XP”

    Love it. OF is big enough that you can have small ball games. Fences aren't crazy shallow on either side so you have to earn your HRs

    Lol just lost an events game over lunch. Lost 2-1, his 2 runs came on suicide squeezes. Love it, when anytime I try to bunt with a pitcher the dude can’t get it down.

    I was super high one night. Was pitching in BR, had runners on the corners and 1 out. Dude did a double steal, I throw down to 2nd - easily hosed. Runner from 3rd scored, walk off loss for me. Well played, guy.

    I’ve seen bunt cheese on a rapid ascent the past week or so. Was playing ranked and this dick hole had 5 bunt hits against me. I ultimately won but part of me just wants to quit when it happens.

    Also find it easier to get BR wins once it’s later in the night. The sacrifices I make for stubs

    Truly, I don’t care about bunting that much except when it’s the bunt cheese like 99 speed base hit stuff consistently. It just seems like for whatever reason getting a bunt down is way harder than it should be, but also because of the way the camera and stuff works fielding a good bunt is an uphill battle too.

    The two the guy had against me were basic sac bunts that were “hit” really hard directly at my 2B but just because of how the games animation works I had no chance.

    I sold all my TN monthly cards bc I’m poor and wanted money instead. Probably complete the May one since the POM should be a little better overall. Seeing the POM be a LH 1B and Dawson being the other big card were two positions that got 0% chub reaction

    Yeah not good at all. There’s speculation that collection reward is coming out and I would have sold mine if I didn’t want that.

    Gad Damn son that's a drop. Is it still HOF difficulty at > 700?

    I'm up to ~625 and want to stop my search bar from looking into the HOF difficulty. I probably won't attempt that difficulty again this year unless the WS reward is something I really want. Definitely not as fun and with events/BR/Coop on Allstar I don't wanna be switching difficulties

    Interesting to see if he has secondary positions bc another 1b would blow.

    When the lights are purple that means 85-89 so that’s a tip off before you even see the logo
