I'm really curious about the MyCareer additions they made. When asked about improvement focuses this year, it was the first thing he mentioned. Although he didn't go in depth, as that information is coming later, it seemed like there were some things he was excited about that he just couldn't talk about yet. And seeing as how that's the only mode I play practically, I'm intrigued and hopeful

So little info about online leagues. All they have to tell us is if we'll be able to edit sliders, quarters length, difficulty, reset games, have custom rosters and playbooks and have an open schedule. These are the basics for an online league in conditions, and it is not hard to tell us about them in 2 minutes. We had no online leagues in the nba2k14 iteration... at least they could clarify wether or not in this edition they will be present. 2 minutes it's what it takes to touch all these points.

And I'm not talking about the podcast, I'm talking about 2k and vc way of marketing their product. The podcast was really good

DaZar talks about some information in the podcast, but I only understood something about the number of teams that you can control and how thr rest of the league will be controlled by the CPU!
There is some new abut the customizable sliders?, admin options? Improvements in the conection of the matches with friends?

Thanks in advance!!!

I hope we can run multiple myleagues because he said you can add classic teams and euro league teams.

I'd love to be able to get a Fiba league going along with a regular NBA season happening as well. That would pretty much take up most of my basketball time for the most part though
 
# 12 UnbelievablyRAW @ 09/06/14 04:28 PM
I hope the bug that caused settings not to save is fixed and that they add sliders to MyCareer

Best things I heard was:


  • They are applying more details in how they distinguish shooters by shot of the dribble and spot up, and tendencies for this and he said this expanded the rating system. So it sounds like there are some new attributes and tendency that role up the overall rating.
  • Online leagues, custom rosters 2-30 Users

Online league difficulty settings are what I want to know about. no more allstar default level leagues as we have in 2k14.

Wonderful podcast. Excellent job Mr. Grisham. I loved what I heard. Who knows, maybe I can play for the first time in an online league with some people from here. That would be awesome...if they can tolerate my English with a Spanish accent.

I loved the jab from Rob Jones - "Smart people realize, a stronger team, is a stronger team." Now what would you make of that? chuckle chuckle
BTW, we know the game will be good; just how much better, with all the fixes, is it going to be, with online being a major part of their focus! That is the million dollar question.
cheers

There's a lot they can edit just to add incentive playing as someone other than a PG and making your teammates not be brainless dullards that hold the ball and refuse to shoot just to keep your assist total down, even if you hit them when open.

He again emphasised that association modes are one of the least popular. This is amazing to me; totally unbelievable.

Reading these boards for the last 5 years, I would have thought it was the most popular.
