NBA Live 14 News Post


EA Sports and the NBA Live 14 team have completed all of the trades throughout the league, updated more than 500 player ratings and added Noche Enebea (Bulls, Lakers, Heat, Knicks, Suns, Spurs) and St. Patrick’s Day jerseys (Celtics, Bulls).

With the release of title update #2, about a month ago, the team can now update in a more timely fashion with the Live Update system.

They have also explained the differences between synergy sports and ratings updates:

SYNERGY SPORTS VS. RATINGS UPDATES

We also understand that there has been some confusion around Synergy Sports updates and how it relates to ratings. The important thing to know is that while Synergy Sports contributes to player tendencies and AI – as well as driving our LIVE Season challenges – roster updates are still manually done by our development team. We do, and will continue to, use Synergy Sports to inform all of our ratings decisions and input, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle. Think of the player ratings as a modifier to all of the Synergy Sports data that’s coming down the pipe in real time.

HOW SYNERGY SPORTS WORKS

Now, let’s dive into how Synergy Sports actually works and what’s being updated immediately after each NBA contest. Synergy Sports automatically updates player tendencies, which directly affects gameplay, so players on the virtual court behave as realistically as possible.

For example, Synergy Sports sets the shooting percentages for distances for each player, which are then modified by the player rating. Additionally, every frame, it uses the tendency updates to help the player evaluate what direction they want to drive, what shoulder they shoot over and more. As mentioned before, this evaluation is constant, using the data updated within an hour of a game’s completion. This is just a small sample of all that Synergy Sports drives for individual players.

Synergy Sports also powers our LIVE Season mode, both NBA Rewind and BIG Moments. After each game, Synergy Sports pulls data on some of the best performances, which we then review and feed into the challenges. This is a bit of a hybrid manual/automated process, as we want to make sure the challenges offered are entertaining and fun for players. Between the challenges, and the tendency data, Synergy Sports has allowed us to make over 13,000 updates and 1,300 challenges during the first half of the NBA season, and we won’t be slowing down. The process is only getting faster and more efficient as we work with it, and we’re completely committed to offering fans the most accurate reflection of the NBA possible.

Updated pretty much everything that I wanted that was left out from the last update. Hopefully they try to do these on a regular basis.

It's good that they are finally starting to do this, but their future hinges on the upgrade they apply to Live 15 and the success it has with the community. No more holding back the technology that can really bring this game to the next level.

Positive news. Hopefully a sign of things to come.

Have they added any cameras? The ones they have are atrocious, we need a camera just like the 2K camera!

Nice man, really nice...I wish we could see the Synergy data inputted like Live 10s DNA....it'd really put some 'umph' behind those numbers...

Glad to finally get some positive news around here....while I am done with Live until they release some bug fixes.....I'm happy to see them follow up with this...

Did they update all accessories? or just BatBron?

I haven't checked but I'm sure some of those classics were added at update #2.

All I have to say to this news is...... NICE!!!!!!! Can't wait to get home and try it out. More excited for this than my other PS4 basketball games update news today.

I think most of the jerseys added in update #2 were single home/away jerseys and most teams just had that one classic jersey. If I'm correct they added the matching pair to those jerseys in today's update. Who knows I could be wrong, all that matters is they have some pretty sweet classic jerseys in the game right now.

There have been no camera improvements yet. It's still the same selection as on launch day, and the overhead views still suffer from the same frame rate and button delay issues.

Lebron looks bad in that picture. Tight shirt wearing Jason looking brother.

After being disappointed in 2k this year, I'll be checking out NBA live 15 this year. Hopefully this time has given them a chance to significantly improve the animations they use.

I'm almost certain that 76ers classic jersey was not there after update #2. Maybe all the others one but I have not seen that one until today. Maybe my game was just glitching at the time of the update.
