Developer Notes

  • Gameplay Balance Change – Pitch Accuracy Tuning
  • We’ve heard the frustrations regarding pitching and perfect inputs not feeling as rewarding as we’d like, so we’ve made the following adjustments:
    • Reduced frequency of pitches landing directly on the edge of the Perfect Accuracy Region (PAR). This benefits all pitching interfaces.
    • Cleaned up some of the known instances where pitches could land outside of the Perfect Accuracy Region (PAR).
    • Artwork tuning where the Perfect Accuracy Region (PAR) was not displaying at the true size on occasion.
    • Removed the Perfect Accuracy Region (PAR) display post-pitch while slidestepping, as there is an accuracy penalty that is not accounted for within the initial PAR.

That’s everything in the patch notes for the latest MLB The Show 23 update. Stick with Shacknews for more updates on the popular baseball sim.
