NBA 2K10: Draft Combine News Post

2K Sports has just posted another NBA Developer Insight. This one featuring NBA 2K10 Draft Combine - My Player Mode.

Quote:
"Hey NBA 2K fans, this is Erick Boenisch, and Iím back for another exclusive developer Insight. Today Iím going to talk about our all-new My Player career mode. Before we get into the meat and potatoes of the mode, let me take a few sentences to show you the design process we went through as a development team in creating this new mode.

Early in the production cycle, we identified three key concepts that we wanted to mold My Player around:

1) Authenticity. We donít believe that starting you off at the end of the bench on an NBA team is a realistic, fun, OR rewarding experience. Where is the sense of progression if your career starts off in the NBA? You deserve more than that.

2) NBA is a Team Sport. Piggybacking off of the Authenticity point, we felt that emphasizing team play over Ďme firstí play was very important in our design. Players who try to overly-dominate the ball and/or otherwise play in a fashion that is detrimental to the overall success of their team will not reap the rewards this mode has to offer. On the other hand, those who respect their teammates, set picks on offense, box out for rebounds, double team when called for, will earn a much larger amount of Skill Points in addition to better grabbing the attention of the NBA scouts who are looking to fill their teams.

3) Pace/Dynamism. With all of the depth that we have added to this mode, we didnít want you languishing in any one aspect of it for an unnecessarily long period of time. A key element to this is targeting what you want to do when you play the mode, and making sure thatís what youíre doing. From the time you create your player, every single game you play means something; every game can make or break where your career takes you next. When you talk to your friends about their career, it likely will have taken a completely different path from yours. We love that!"

2.For those of you who have thoughts of increasing all of the shot sliders and lowering the CPU sliders to your benefit, sorry, that’s a no go.
I wonder if his audio is included? Hehe cheesers beware!

Got it...so, buying Draft Combine allows you to be drafted.

No noshun, I don't have a laptop attached to my hip or anywhere on my body. I also don't have 8 browsers opened. I do have a life.

Wow, in the blog he says that it'll takes most of your career to get a high rating. Seems challenging and sounds fun. This should last us quite some, if done right.

No custom sliders?

He didn't say specifically where, but I believe it'll be on that Insight, so we just gotta wait for them to update it.

Oh and nice job posting the Insight before me.

Me too man. This mode should help people learn the fundamentals of playing 'sim' ball. Any of that wrecklessness stat builder stuff will only get you out of your my player mode. Hopefully this reflects with better online Team play as well.

So what happens when your career ends? Can injuries hamper your career? I'm looking forward to this1!

At first, I wasn't very glad VC got traded. But since I'm a diehard Nets fan, I tried to be optimistic about it. I really like the young squad we have. They can only get better, and maybe they can somehow sign somebody in 2010. I will be somewhat rooting for the Magic now though.

To be on topic: Nice find, man.

Lol bench cam.

I like how it sounds challenging, I hope it is EXTREMELY difficult to reach 99 also. It would be lame if after a month or so in team-up everyone is ranked 99.

Wonder what happens if you struggle in the Dleague or get cut from a Dleague team...game over?
 
# 20 RipCity71252 @ 08/25/09 10:30 PM
Sounds pretty fun.

Hopefully the on-court experience is more than just player lock and having to sit the bench for whoever long it happens to be.

Not expecting a whole lot, and I've never really got into these types of modes to begin with.

I'll surely check it out though.
