The Show 17 Make Good and Server Update

We take pride in developing and delivering an excellent gaming experience every year for our fans. This year is no different. Unfortunately, we’re less than happy with unexpected server issues that have accompanied the launch of MLB The Show 17 and know you are too – for this we apologize.

We’ve been working without pause to address a number of server and gameplay issues to restore the online experience we had hoped to achieve at launch. Some of these changes have been made visible to our community in the form of patches and in-game messages, while other upgrades haven’t been publicized, in the form of back end server updates.

We’re pleased to report that these updates have made great strides to address the main issues related to online gameplay and have led to an improved gameplay experience for our fans.

As a token of apology, as well as a thank you to our dedicated community for helping us identify these issues and for your patience as we’ve worked to address them, we are extending a make good to anyone who meets the criteria outlined below.

Every PSN ID which played The Show 17 between 3/28 at 12:01 am PT and May 11 at 1:00pm PT, will receive 10 Standard Packs and 11,000 Stubs automatically added to their account.  Please note that the make good will be deployed into all effected users account within a week.

Once again, we want to thank you for your passion and loyalty.

We’ll see you on the diamond!

The Show Dev Team

    In addition to this, and in relationship to the real frustration that most of us felt, I believe you should have allowed users to complete some of the current ranked seasons program missions on vs. CPU/battle royale at All-Star level. So many of my stats went missing over the course of the last month and I can never get that time back (and the idea of re acquiring 3b steals for Chipper or breakout wins for Drabek is discouraging). Moving forward, keep the program requirements a mix of CPU/ranked/etc, but for the older programs, maybe allow some of those to be vs CPU?

    Why should anyone be thanking you guys. Year after year your servers are awful when is the lightbulb going to go off and say hey we really need to make sure are online is usable. To busy promoting stuff like retro mode wooooooooooo hooooooooo. If i wanna play my sega genesis ill hook it up. Your customer service is awful. 11,000 stubs wtf can we do with that and a 10 pack yeaaaaaaaa. It must be nice when you have no competition and all you have to do year after year is the bare minimum

    Thank you for working to address the issues.  Communication earlier would help, but thank you again.
