After couple games of 2vs2 teammate challenge i got annoyed by the cell shade graphics..cannot find any option to turn it off even that someone said it can be done..i see no separate option menu in legends showcase...

Just downloaded it and messed around with it for about half an hour. (I couldn't sleep anyways) Honestly, I probably won't be doing that much playing around with it. The sliders don't transfer, you can't turn the cell-shade off, you can't even put it on cpu vs cpu if you just want to kick back and relax. And no, the new legends are NOT in the main game now. Another thing of note is that the existing hexed CAPs on 2K Share still have the black arms even after you download them. It remains to be seen if they'll still be there if someone re-uploads them with the DLC intact (if that's even possible).

Pretty much the only plus I can see is that the ability to customize the classic rosters is available right off the bat, which is great since that was the primary attraction of this DLC for me.

Bottom line: unless there's a code we don't know about to unlock the new legends in the main game or if you're big into roster customization, you can probably live without the DLC. Of course, I realize a lot of people play online and use the My Player and Create A Legend modes, but I don't use either so I don't consider myself to be a fair judge of those factors.

This DLC is very underwhelming. The only part of it I'm pleased with is the access to the legend teams, which should have been included with the game anyways.

To anyone who downloads this:

Make sure you are rating it how you actually feel about it. I know we are still giving 2K our money and justifying their DLC, but if they get a lower rating they might reassess future DLC releases or even this DLC release. I urge you, rate it low if you are unimpressed with the content!!!

No my player online with the DLC???
 
# 7 CaCHooKa Man @ 11/29/11 07:04 AM
kobe, duncan and dirk arent available in any other modes aside from the 3v3 era challenge. plus, whats up with not having to clear the ball after a steal or block? i thought a change of possession meant you had to clear the ball, not only after a missed shot and rebound.

I would like to know what you mean by destroyed your roster? I assume copied over it. I understand your pissed, i just want to know what exactly your talking about so others can watch out for it.

For those with it, what can we exactly edit on the legends teams? Can we just add the CAPs or can we edit the fake players to the real missing players? That might be enough to get me to bite.

I have the same problem..the game prompted me with Lebron 9 Miami shoe after i downloaded the DLC and no art is visible for it..then i try to customize it and the game crashes..also after couple of games 2vs2 teammate challenge i went out of the mode and came back and the save file somehow got corrupted and i got to start all over again...so far not good experiences of this mode at all..

you cant edit the fake players' names and stuff but you can release them and add created players to the teams

Damn, so one of the things i wanted was adding guys like Andrew Toney to the 84 Sixers will be a problem even. Thank you for explaining further.

Can someone tell me how many Microsoft points the DLC costs? I havent done much research into it. Not being able to bring the new legends into the base game really turned me off. If its like 400-560mp sure i'll grab it ,but if its the 800mp no thanks 2k.

800 MP = $10. Not worth it in my opinion. If everyone is lucky, those who bought the DLC will be able to modify the legends rosters and upload them to 2K share so others don't have to throw away $10.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.
 
# 16 STLRams @ 11/29/11 08:28 AM
So basically the only benefit of this DLC is the ability to edit the classic rosters and so far it seems that isn't even cut and dry as it should be. For 2K to add all of the those new classic players and not give us the option to play with them in the other game modes is taking one step forward and two steps back. 2KSports has me really confused on there logic this year, maybe when the upcoming patch is released they will add the option of being able to put the new 45 classic players in the other game modes.
 
# 17 ezio @ 11/29/11 08:29 AM
Sorry to ask a question in here but just wanted to confirm that no one found a way to turn off the cell shading?
 
# 18 ManiacMatt1782 @ 11/29/11 08:36 AM
The insight said we could use existing legends in association. The online association insight said anything that could be done in offline association could be done in online association. So putting the 2 pieces of information together, did the unlikely actually happen, Do we have legends available in online association?

Either you have an impression from buying the DLC or you don't.

If you don't, DON'T POST. It's that simple.

People are interested in reading what others have to say about this - not your opinions on why it's not worth it.

Thanks.

It's very glitchy at this point with the rosters, but you CAN play with new legends in the main game.
