NBA Elite 11 News Post


ESPN's, Jon Robinson breaks down EASBA and Become Legendary modes in NBA Elite 11.

Quote:
"As you play through the mode, your character is rated every game on his offense, defense, and team play. Adds Campbell: "So while you're free to play whatever style you want, like a shoot-first point guard, the team play grade holds you accountable to your team and forces you to play good basketball. Then every time you reach a specific statistical threshold, like collect 10 assists, you gain a statistical level. So you can try to be the next Dennis Rodman and try to fill out all of your rebounding levels if you want, or you can spread out your stats and try to be more versatile. Hopefully this encourages users to create their own type of player as nothing is based purely by position. There are also points given for awards like end of season championships and winning stat categories as well as individual game performance like a triple double (this is called leaving your fingerprints on the game). For example, to reach Level 22, you're going to need around 2,000 award points. So if you want to be like Allen Iverson and win the scoring title but not win any championships, you can do that. Or you can be the role player who just hits threes but wins nine championships and still become a legend. The idea is you can combine your statistics and your awards in infinite ways in order to progress through the mode."

The mode enables you to play up to 25 seasons as you try to attain legendary status (and shoes), but it shouldn't take that long in order to become a top star (besides, who wants to be the old man of the NBA). After each season, your player will go through the offseason, and there will be trade offers as well as contract signings. "We've also added bounce backs and setbacks into the mode," adds Campbell. "If you have a bad game and maybe shoot only 33-percent from the field and commit 9 turnovers, in your next game, you get a bounce back objective that says: Shoot 45-percent and commit less than 5 turnovers. If you do that, you're given bounce back points that help grow your character. We just feel like these are true to life components of life and basketball and trying to become a legend. You can't let bad performances get you down and you can't erase them. This is your chance to grow."

You realize Become Legendary is mostly the same as EASBL, it's just an online version of it with team-play and other options. With that said, it's great to hear to about these modes and I think Become Legendary will be the most played mode this year.

Love that they capped it at 90 online. Too many times I ran into those "monsters" in the other game and it just doesn't make the game fun. If the gameplay is up to par, this mode will be a lot of fun.

Man I'm banking on the easba being great just like the nhl franchise, and it sounds like it will be. I'm honestly only going to be playing this mode and 2k's crew mode, as long as they fixed there online services...all I need is a demo EA when is it dropping?

I think Elite going to be the best basketball game right now or next year...2K only have MJ in it and that all i heard and the players still look big like they have shoulder pads on.

ea has great faces, but body still look too shiny, i respect your opinion, but i think 2k will absolutely destroy elite this year as usual, i just need some gameplay from elite to further my theory, but i could be wrong, thats my opinion

Wow this sounds great, I can't wait to try it out.

I'm gonna create a 6'8 Slasher SG, with a great post game, mid range game, and handle.

Sounds nice. Everyone's been wanting more game modes so we are getting them. Should up the replay value of Elite. Just waiting on the demo.

I like the way Elite is going with it though, Becoming a legend and trying to unlock certain objectives. And FYI Live had "Be a Pro" in 09, but they didn't expand on it for '10 for some reason.

Both of these new game modes sound great, but so did Live run last year which I never got to play because none of my friends had the game.

That was also in Live 09's "Be a Pro" mode, even though it was just one game. So I can I also say 2k copied Live 09 and just made it a full fledged game mode, like what was expected to be in Live 10.
