MLB The Show Dev Team Handing Out Large Compensation For Server Issues At Launch

If you’ve recently logged on to MLB The Show 17 and have noticed a major increase in your stubs balance has seemingly grown overnight , there’s a good reason for it. When MLB The Show 17 launched back on March 28th the game suffered some server issues, and players had a hard time experiencing the online services the game had to offer.

For their troubles, MLB The Show players have received 11,000 stubs and 10 standard card packs. Here is a full transcript of the dev team’s apology:

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 that played The Show 17 between 3/28 at 12:01 am PT and 5/11 at 1:00 pm 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 thank you for your passion and loyalty.

We’ll see you on the diamond!
