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!

    As long as the game works it's a great compensation it's 1/3 price of the original game and any of y'all that want better go to a different game where they won't give you anything at all. 

    This is a company y'all asking for a lot need to stop complaining this company like all others don't want to lose money, if they lose money it will be harder to bring out new stuff every year

    I must agree with most people when I say this is a bad form of compensation in so many ways. It doesn't nearly make up for every single issue that's been happening so far. Let's not forget the recently released Bases Loaded packs. I need compensation for this because I sure as hell didn't pay 20 bucks to not get to open a pack. Spread the diamond love and increase pack odds and please stop being so EA greedy! Make right to us the customer.

    Please fix the online franchise roster upload...not everyone plays Diamond Dynasty...I've been trying to start an online franchise with the lastest OSFM Hybrid roster and every time I upload the roster all of the minor league prospects come out with the same generic Chase Headley face.just different skin tones... Supposedly this has been going on since the patch before the most recent one. Please fix this so my league can be started without 300 Chase Headleys running around. Thanks

    I know every company out there nowadays only care about and cater to the online players, but my concern lies with RTTS. Ive seen some extremely dissapointing things. Players fielding the ball and just standing there not throwing to base to get the out. Lack of eras happening forcing your era through the roof. Unacceptable hitting animations from the AI batters (making good contact with reaching and jammed swings). These things come as a shock as they have never presented themselves this bad before. Im worried to the fact if any Devs know about these few issues, and if they plan on adressing them or just forgetting them to continue to put the online drones as top priority? Attention needs to be payed to these bugs.

    I think this is double sided. While DD players are frustrated beyond belief there are also plenty of people who for the most part have been able to play without incident offline. Personally I don't find the compensation satisfactory but I also can't say the whole game is broken. I honestly was thinking of a diamond mission or maybe the infamous White Sox Griffey card

    I'm reading between the lines that there MAY be a "diamond" in those 10 free packs!!

    I for one, who am new to the franchise and focussing on RTTS really appreciate this.  Other gaming companies wouldn't even p!$$ in your ear.  

    Anyone still moaning about this game and the support from SDS need to take a hard look at what other developers are doing when their titles don't launch as expected.  You're acting like a pack of over-priviledged, sense of entitlement millennials. Get over yourselves of go play something else.

    Honestly, it's a fair reimbursement. Believe me, it's been beyond frustrating but, and the lack of communication has made it worse. 

    To the Devs, if you read, for future reference don't go dark when there are issues. The twitter accounts that constantly hyped up the game release, the show, the show tips, and Ramon Russell all dissapeared. That's the frustration. 

    To everyone complaining about what the Devs are giving us, be thankful. It's essentially $20 worth of stuff. If you want diamonds, play games. Play the market, and earn them.
