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.

    I think they should've at least gave us another diamond and gold starter pack, plus the 10K and free 10 pack of cards. I spent 120 bucks on a HOF edition just so  me and all my friends could be excited to play and have it glitch like crazy and half the time freeze up or not record wins. It was frustrating as anything to try time and time again just to play a clean game. This compensation to me feels more like an insult than an apology. Basically, thanks for a gold card or another crummy 10 pack of cards with nothing but crap bronzes and commons. It wouldn't surprise me if they changed the odds of getting a gold or diamond in a pack too. I will definitely rethink my decision to buy next year's edition. I should've learned from 2016 but I figured they'd have fixed that mess this time around. Brutal.

    I think people take this stuff entirely to serious. Yall do realize it is just a game right? Dont get me wrong I get a bit frustrated with the freezing and other issues but its just a virtual game. I know I have put enough money into this game but I know going into it that the money will be gone. I do not care though because I enjoy the game. Just relax guys its not that serious. 

    Also everyone saying they are going to hold off on buying the MLB The Show 18 please do so the rest of us guys who dont take gaming that serious wont have server issues ;). Thanks SDS for the compensation and I appreciate your efforts to make this game great.

    Weak.  Packs and stubs doesn't make up for this broken game. Honestly, all the lost time spent with games that didnt count, losses taken on lock ups etc etc is something you just cant throw stubs and packs at.   

    I couldnt finish the Bronze event and get the 80 wins because of your trash servers.  I grinded and  grinded and fought your damn servers with games dissappearing into the Que hell,  just to get 68 wins and beleive me if mu games had counted i would of had well over the 80 win requirment.  SDS handling of that entire situation and not extending the event at the very least thing they could if done.

     

    Not buying mlb 18. Two yrs in a row.  Fool me once shame in me, fool me twice....

    I really haven't had many problems in the last two weeks so at least it's moving in the right direction. Thanks for the packs and the Stubs. Also for addressing the situation. You guys have got to do better next year the first month and a half of this game was just unacceptable.

    This should be criminal. We paid for a broken game. There is no laws against this?

    I'm sorry but I have played this game for many years and Im as loyal as a fan can get. The lack of communication to this point has been a slap in the face to me THE CONSUMER. I feel that you guys continue to fail your fanbase and you are a poor representation of the MLB brand as a whole. 16 was a massive failure as I struggled to have fun with a game I once loved so much. I gave you another chance in 17 to get more of the same. You guys know what the issues are and refuse to fix it which tells me you don't care enough to make the nessisary changes. The only "get right" in my opinion is to FIX IT like any smart company would do. From morphed pitches to soft freezes 17 is yet another failed attempt to reach greatness. I look at 2K and don't understand why you can't get on their level. Smh. I appreciate the gesture but your game is broken (PCI in particular) fix that first. I wish there was another option.
