NBA Elite 11 News Post


Yaw, A.K.A. "blackflash83" has posted another NBA Elite 11 blog. This one touching on more hands-on controls with the demo.

Quote:
"Defensive Hops: Use this mechanic while on defense to position your defender in front of the ball handler by pressing the left trigger and a direction on the left stick together (press L2 and a direction on the left analog for PS3). It can be used on the perimeter or in the post. On the perimeter it will result in an explosive defensive push slide. When being backed down in the post, use this control to re-position your defender to the side of your check. You'll then be in position to steal the ball.

Battling down low: User the LS to push a teammate back or away from the basket. A series of LS moves (returning the LS to neutral after every deflection) in the direction you want to move your opponent, will move him in the desired direction. Use this during off-ball post battles, when backing down an opponent, while boxing out for rebounds or when being backed down by an opponent. Note that if you have a weight or strength advantage over your opponent, you'll be more successful."

I thought after playing this game for 10+ hours I knew a lot but now that I have seen this blog I'm a damn noob
Back to PRACTICE kobe here I come

edit: btw there actually are a lot of moves missing but i see EA want you to find it yourself

# 5 bmgoff11 @ 09/23/10 09:58 PM
thats because u cant handle the controls dont get mad at the game because u dont know what to do lol//

i think he probably mad at the game because its just overall bad lol.

Now back on topic, ive figured mostly all these moves and everything from just practicing like crazy. I pretty much have the controls down pack. Now when i go play the retail at my friend house ( since im not wasting my money on it) i can catch him of guard and bust him down lol

at first i would of agreed with harman

the first time i played it i was like what is this

but after spending a good hour playing quickgame i really got the hang of it and is alot more fun to play now
in the legendary mode my guy actually did good because i knew what i was doing, and i was the leading scorer

invest an hour or so in it

ps im not a fanboy of elite,

can you throw yourself a alley hoop off the backboard and dunk it in 2k11? did 2k fix there terrible servers this year?

I figured out 99% of this stuff on my own just messing around. Alley oop off the backboard was one of the 1st plays I ever did. Guy didn't finish it though because I did it in a half court setting. I managed to catch it but it banged off the rim.

But anyway alley oop off the back board really isn't nothing new. They had it in Live 04, 2k5, college hoops 2k5, a few march madness games.

All they doing is bringing it back. Hopefully it doesn't get cheesed to death like the inbound alley oop for the past 2 years or so.

So go away to your board before getting banned.

thanks blackflash83 for the info cause i forgot about throwing it off the backboard on a fastbreak.

Brilliant..most of this I know, but the spin move gather is a new one for me.

I have to actually MAKE a jump hook though..is it a timed release, like a jumper?

This game gets really fun, once you know what you are doing.

you did not just try to imply that throwing off the backboard and dunking it yourself was a aspect needed in a NBA basketball game did you

Yes. You have to time it right, and finish at 12:00, in order to make it.
