And before you complain about why hasn't X player been added/moved yet:

Quote:
SimBaller: Just to reiterate what Will said above, just because you can post a link saying that Player A signed or Players B and C were traded for each other, that doesn't mean we have league approval (yet) to process the move.

All contracts and trades need to get ratified by the league before the transaction can take place in our game. It's very, very rare that the league intervenes on a signing/trade, but we saw that last week with the CP3 trade. It can happen.

We chose to do frequent small updates to give you the goods as they come in rather than waiting until the season starts. This means another roster update is always right around the corner with the latest transactions.

#3 calm the heck down
 
# 3 qnzballa5 @ 12/12/11 04:42 AM
Jimmer signed on friday. Its on the website.. And the logic for the rotations is wat bothers me the most.. The gilbert arenas thing, richard jefforson from the spurs thing all came out on friday. So y r they still on their old teams? Lamar odom was took care of late sat nite.. I just dont get it...
 
# 4 qnzballa5 @ 12/12/11 04:45 AM
Like i said in my other thread.. Its not updated right. Lamar odom still on the lakers. Jason kapono is not there.. Gilbert arenas still on magic. Richard jefforson still on spurs.. List goes on n on.. Only few rookies.. Not pleased with this update one bit..

No one said it was going to all get updated. You expect them to do all that in one update? Give them time man.
 
# 6 ClevelandinDistress @ 12/12/11 04:48 AM
Seems like they caught some players and left others out. Hopefully this will get sorted out in the coming days
 
# 7 OGKing @ 12/12/11 04:54 AM
You shouldn't expect them to get everything done all in one..it takes time. Give them time. I'm sure they'll update it every other day, with all the free agency stuff and whatnot, just give them time, ok?


You should be lucky you even got a roster update.
 
# 8 ClevelandinDistress @ 12/12/11 04:55 AM
Looks like commentary still says artest
 
# 9 ClevelandinDistress @ 12/12/11 04:57 AM
I swear I'm hearing "world peace" from the PA announcer
 
# 10 OGKing @ 12/12/11 04:58 AM
I'll test it once it actually shows up in the west coast

and wow, the Jordan Fly Wade 2 looks nice.
 
# 11 ClevelandinDistress @ 12/12/11 04:59 AM
Yup PA announcer says metta world peace but Clark Steve and Kevin say artest
 
# 12 OGKing @ 12/12/11 05:04 AM
Still not on 2k share here.
 
# 13 TUSS11 @ 12/12/11 05:11 AM
Is Irving the only rookie in this update?

I want Vesely!
 
# 14 yossihaz1 @ 12/12/11 05:23 AM
where can i find the update and how do i put him into my game?
if i play season mode do i need to start it from the begining to get the updates? (for example, butler to clipers)
 
# 15 kingg d @ 12/12/11 05:25 AM
Worst update ever, only 4 rookies when they said they were hardly working to put as many as they can. Almost every rookie signed but we only get 4?

Lazy 2k strikes back
 
# 16 Rain816 @ 12/12/11 05:40 AM

They know customers are disappointed, they should be working their asses of to make the customers happy. we paid for a new game with last years rosters, we should have updates damn near every day or two since we have played with old rosters for so long

I'm not expecting rating edits or anything, just make the damn trades
I said that before my game updated, when it updated, i looked at the rosters.. and yea..it's pretty sad lol.

Let's see what ronnie has to say about it this time

I don't think a big deal should be made at this point either, but it is curious how rookie signings that were completed Friday are not in but free agent signings as late as yesterday are reflected. And where is Aaron Brooks? LOL I understand Brandon Roy being completely removed, but Aaron Brooks is nowhere to be found. Did he retire, too? LOL
 
# 19 Mos1ted @ 12/12/11 06:13 AM
I'm not saying dudes should protest and riot, but when you get quotes like this from the community guy...

@jojojr125 no our families and friends won't get to see us much this weekend. This amount of player movement in-season is unprecedented

The 2K Insider is hard at work on including as many rookie signings and capturing as much player movement as possible as we speak
...you can't blame them for expecting more than they received.
 
# 20 The 24th Letter @ 12/12/11 06:21 AM
THIS took all weekend and multiple set backs? The full roster may take over a year.....

WTF fellas?
