Sticky balls and sports don’t go together. especially when it comes to bowling. We’re trying to throw the ball and get a strike, not have the ball stick to us!
Unfortunately, some Nintendo Switch Sports players have been reporting that exact issue. One of those players @MCwreckshin, has tweeted Nintendo directly about the issues. Apparently this has only been going on since the recent summer update, and MCwreckshin has collected footage of all the times it’s happened to them.
As you can see in the video, almost every time the player goes to throw the ball, it stubbornly sticks to the avatar’s hand. Sometimes, after a couple of times, they manage to launch it. Other times, he falls straight to the ground, thankfully without his toes!
MCwreckshin isn’t the only player reporting this either. On Reddit, the same person, under the username sweeneytoadmusic, has created a thread on the Nintendo Switch Sports subreddit, with others reporting similar issues.
One user, scowley75, says that the bowling ball seems to stick “when trying to throw anything with a curve,” while another, BoomerTheStar47_2, seems to have discovered that this issue only occurs when bowling online.
Since then sweeneytoadmusic have tested this offline and although they ran into the problem much less, they still ran into the same sticky ball issue.
And, in a strange twist, another user has the complete opposite problem: the ball No wants to stay, rather than leave the player’s hand before he has a chance to move.
Nintendo has yet to address the issue, so be on the lookout if you’re a regular at online bowling. After all, nobody wants sticky balls.
