Have to wait until daytime to pick up my pre-order and start ripping packs, someone rip some packs in my stead


Last year I was able to get an all gold/diamond team pretty quickly through conquest and playing the market, I wonder what cheese methods there will be this year


Pulling Stanton, Arenado and Altuve didn't hurt either....



Is there a Gaf league this year? Maybe they figured shit out

I bought the deluxe edition and it has the arrow to download it under my purchased but when I click on it, it says it isn't downloaded, despite having already pre downloaded it

EDIT: Its bought and everything but it does't appear to me downloaded, and it won't let me do so.

It would be cool if you could make intro specific to your team. Like once you picked your favorite team it would just show random highlights from your teams history.

Enhanced visuals is the way to go on PS4 Pro. Framerate feels smoother than last year with a nice boost to visuals on top. 4K is definitely playable but the cutscenes are definitely dropping below 30 fps so it looks pretty jarring.

So guys I replaced the intro's audio with CNN's Decade intro theme (it works really well.) But because I couldn't loop it properly and it's only a 55 second track, I had to abridge the opening.

I kept Vin Scully's voice over, but naturally some of the other things had to go in order for the music to match the visuals. Ultimately, if anyone else can find a better way to put that theme to overlay the intro completely with a better loop, go for it.

Anyway, here's my fan-edit of the intro. (I'm using crappy editing software too so I did what I could).

I haven't watched the intro yet since I don't want to spoil it, but for those that have seen it, does it top the MLB 12 The Show intro? I think this is the greatest intro I've ever seen:

As a Rays fan that'll always be my favorite. Was such a great night, constantly flipping between the Rays and the Red Sox games.

I agree. Everything is super clean and smooth until you get a cut-scene. Still very playable. Loved it!

In some images I posted earlier (Sorry for the Facebook quality in those) I zoomed in on some plaques at classic Yankee Stadium in Monument Park and you could read all the text on them. They had all the plaques. In the retired numbers section, they had all the numbers, but the plaques below them had repeated non-legible textures over them. It's so minor that it's nothing at all. The attention to detail is insane!

Omg I love this intro. Obviously made by people who love the sport, just like the game.

I've bought every The Show game since 2012 or so, I was thinking about passing on this one because I've got games coming out of my ears, but I gotta get this damn game again just to support these guys.

Weird, I just log into the app, click on the PS store Icon located on the top left, enter my login info, enter the verification code (2-step ver) and can buy anything from there. You can set it to download directly to your PS4 from there as well...

Played 2 games last night. Shame the servers weren't online when I played but just from 2 games I can see how hit variety has improved a lot. After playing so much The Show 16 some hits I was expecting to end up as easy pop ups but to my complete surprise the ball takes a realistic angle instead of just liners and end up as a single.

nah, I used a code with the holiday sale. My guess is that you need to be on a Wi-Fi signal?

If nothing else, delete the app and re-download it onto your phone.

What was the pre-order bonus? I ordered from them, and didn't recall what that was.

They were supposed to go up at Midnight (which they supposedly did) and then The Show Twitter account tweeted at like 6 a.m. that all of the servers were live and ready to go. They crashed sometime between then and like 10:30 eastern.

I honestly can't remember what they were like for 15, but last year it took about 2 weeks until they got their servers stabilized. Once they did they were really solid the rest of the year, but it was quite messy at the beginning.
