    Definitely is a thing. Took me a few games to get back into it.

    Yeah I was never a great hitter, but man the first few games trying to remember the PCI and timing of it is always a mess. Especially early on in DD where you’re using some Silver pos card.

    Wouldn’t hate it if they extended the test an extra day with all the crashing yesterday.

    which i suppose is also the point of the beta test

    Yea the crashes doesn't bother me at all. That's the point. I wish 2k did this. Instead they drop a half completed game and then spent a month doing patches.

    Normally used offset zoom for my batter view but i could not get any sort of timing on pitches. Swapped over to strike zone zoom and i started ripping off hits. Could actually see the spin on sliders. I don’t remember it being that big of a difference on the ps4 but with the ps5 i could track the ball much better out of the pitchers hand

    It really is remarkably easier to see the ball and hit on PS5.

    Did anyone get the beta for Xbox? My friend said he was thinking about getting it but hadn’t heard how it looked for Xbox

    Just threw my first no hitter with Finest DeGrom in his first start. 18 K's, one walk.

    Also, Showdown is so much more tolerable when you arent spending 55 fucking minutes waiting for the game to load.

    Damn, sucks stadium creator is next generation only. I was kind of looking forward to that if it wasn’t super cheesy/unrealistic.

    Are both new versions of the Xbox considered “next gen”?

    Also how long are these consoles expected to be sold out for?

    Is there a next gen version and a ps4 version? I was confused.

    There will be PS4, PS5, Xbox One, then whatever the new Xbox is called.

    Based on that video, the stadium creator will only be on next gen

    So on PS5 I started off hot initially. I absolutely cannot catch a break in RS now. I am literally the lowest rank you can get, lost like 7 in a row because I cannot hit. Sad part is I usually have more hits than my opponent.

    What's your lineup? I had to go for all power so that when I do make contact it's often a HR.

    Played a guy the other might with Cobb, Lofton, Brock, Biggio, and Henderson all in his lineup. Someone was out position lol. He led off with a bunt, stole 2nd, bunt to 3rd, then safety squeeze home. He led 1-0 until the 7th. Soto hot a 3 run HR and he quit before it landed.

    And The Show absolutely pairs up people that love near each other. The amount of Florida named teams I play is laughable. All Florida and Georgia.

    Alright so thankfully for some poor fella that put his controller down, I figured out what was wrong. I am swinging way ahead of everything. My swing was basically timed up for 103 on 94-96. So thanks to the abandoned controller and 49-0 ranked season win I feel better.

    94-96 is so much more manageable. I can wait and read pitch and then swing. I'll be late on some fb's but thats expected. When it's 102, I have to either guess fb or just sit on off-speed and concede every fb as a strike bc I have no chance to read fb and then swing and have a chance to hit it.

    This isn’t a gameplay request, but it’d be awesome if they added a couple of more options with the created jerseys when you’re building your DD team.

    I’ll admit I’m a dork when it comes to this stuff, but it’s so annoying there’s 7-8 name/number fonts but none of them are just a standard number. It’s basically the Red Sox font with the rest being fonts no MLB team uses.

    I know you can just blend the button color with your uniform color, but it’d be cool to have an option for no buttons to get the 80s style throwback pullover type jersey.

    It’d also be cool if enough people on here played DD, that we could somehow get a “league” or a tournament going.

    Opening it up to Xbox players with cross platform should really increase the amount

    I have less than zero interest in creating teams uniforms or parks but I still appreciate that people geek out on it. People come up with some funny shit.

    I would definitely enjoy doing a created stadium, but doubt I’ll have this on next-gen this year.

    When it comes to jerseys, I definitely have fun making them. I try to make them realistic and not over the top, so that’s probably why I hate the font options. No chance am I creating a logo though, at least how it currently works on The Show.

    I’ll take 10 minutes to make a decent looking jersey. Unless I’m doing something wrong, no way in hell I’m spending the time it would take to make a logo, so hope people uploaded all the good ones into the vault.

    Yeah I get it, I have friends who do the same and they enjoy that as much as the game. I was looking at reddit the other day and some dudes basically made the game NCAA baseball in the Show 20. Somehow they made the parks smaller, one dude did all the college uniforms, another somehow created the rosters. I enjoyed the read even though I want nothing to do with it, I still respect their hustle.

    I played a guy a few weeks ago that has South Alabama Baseball jerseys. I played at South so I immediately had to pause it and message him. Found out he's committed to play there so that was pretty cool. I may try to make their unis next year.

    No logo is boring. Think I’m going to go with the Durham Bulls this year, surely there is a decent logo around for them by now.

    Not sure how common this is, but I found the last couple of years you can search for a keyword and find logos and save them from the vault. Then you can basically take the logo and add it to your jerseys and position it however, etc.

    Someone uploaded a few for Nebraska, was super realistic, when had the small Adidas logo added perfectly so it’d go on the top/chest part of the jerseys. Basically all I had to do was adjust the colors and style templates.

    I forgot I “rebranded” my team last year and changed the colors from black/red/yellow to a burgundy and yellowish.

    I have a new team name/scheme in mind but it’ll depend on what logos got uploaded this year.
