I’ve noticed two changes (defects?) to Button Accuracy Fielding, and I’m wondering if it’s just a setting change I need to make, a permanent change or defects.

Scenarios:  

1.  Two outfielders running towards a ball in the gap:  I preload the throw on the RF (who I’m controlling), but the CF gets the ball first.  In previous years, the preloaded throw would transfer from the RF to the CF, but it’s not in 19.  Is this a defect?

2.  I have my opponents runner caught in a rundown:  In previous years I could hold down the button (for the base I’m going to throw to) and the meter would continue to cycle until I decided I want to throw.  In this year, when I hold down the button, the meter stops at the end (in the red) and the fielder automatically throws wildly.  Is this a defect?

1. I have had this happen to, preloaded throws not registering in the OF.

2. I haven't tried this one yet.  I would think it would have to be a designed change, I do recall that always being the case where the meter would run continuously.  

I was always a pure analog fielder, but the absence of the arrows and overall wonkiness continued from the Alpha so I have picked up button accuracy again.

I use button accuracy and it mostly works okay (despite me not liking the arrows being gone).

But I just had a play that may be similar.

Man on first, ball hit to the pitcher. I preload a throw to 2B but then notice the ball is too slow, so I cancel and preload a throw to 1B.

Pitcher gets to the ball and just stands there. I have to do another throw, by which time it's way too late.

And if it's not cycling the meter, that's just silly.

Yes, it’s not cycling the meter (thanks, that’s a much better way to express it). 👍🏻

1) The transfer will still happen if the switch happens automatically, but we're going to investigate this further.

2) This is by design. The meter will no longer hold the throw.

Just to chime in here, I also experienced something bizarre with button accuracy in my last game. I had a flyball to mid RF with Eddie Rosario (95 arm strength) camped out under it. I got a green throw to my catcher (Wilson Ramos) and the ball went no where close to the catcher. In fact, it went out of play and two runs scored. Was this a glitch? I though button accuracy ensures a perfect throw if you get in the green.

Victor, I just want to add that #1 has absolutely not been the case in my experience so far. I am having the same issue as OP
