Is MLB The Show 23 Down? How To Check Server Status
If you encounter a connection problem, start by ensuring that your own Internet Service Provider (ISP) is not experiencing any issues on your end.
Assuming everything is running smoothly with your ISP and there are no problems with your console’s online service, the first step is to visit the MLB The Show 23 Twitter account.
Typically, San Diego Studio (SDS) communicates with the MLB The Show community whenever server issues arise. Additionally, it’s a good idea to perform a quick Twitter search to check if others are encountering the same error or if it’s isolated to your situation.
Don’t forget to utilize DownDetector as another valuable resource. DownDetector can monitor the volume of reports regarding server outages and pinpoint their geographical origins.
