No sliders? I knew about the roster editing but.......sogh
 
# 3 snocone @ 09/08/14 08:15 PM
So you can create a player, but you can't edit a roster.


Sounds like they straight-up have the exact same systems that are causing so much hate as NHL has. SMH

Pretty unacceptable to have no sliders in this generation. Hell what would it be worth if they had them and they didn't work like some other games *cough* Madden *cough*.

Im happy about create a player for sure, but no sliders is unacceptable.
 
# 7 LingeringRegime @ 09/08/14 08:29 PM
I just can't understand why they can't have sliders. Mindblowing to me.
 
# 8 exposedaking @ 09/08/14 08:29 PM
I hope create a player is not limited to their career mode like on 14
 
# 9 bigeastbumrush @ 09/08/14 08:40 PM
Inexcusable and unacceptable...
 
# 10 da ThRONe @ 09/08/14 08:48 PM
I really don't get why sliders are needed anyways. If the game really takes into consideration all the things it should we shouldn't need them. If I have to tweak things like scoring in the paint there's a fundamental issue with the game.


Just glad there adding something to the rising star mode.
 
# 11 nick_sr @ 09/08/14 08:48 PM

This really stood out to me, It's really nice that he's doing this after the delayed announcement, give him props for that but isn't that a lot to have to work on in 3 weeks? I'm naive to game development I admit but seems like a lot to do. Of course no sliders is a big deal also.

Throne, I know your a fan of the series....but this a little much man...we just going to excuse every thing they do?

Sliders customize the user experience and have been in basically every sports game for 10+ years now....it's fine if your ok with not having them....but come on.
 
# 14 Sports fanantic @ 09/08/14 08:56 PM
This is not very encouraging at all. Not having Sliders in a Sports Video game is completely unacceptable. Very bad move by EA Sports

You'd be surprised to see what even 1 day of tweaking and altering can do.

Not every player plays the same. Some people may not like the way the game feels by default. Ideally, the default will not need to be changed, but it's still good to have options.

1st not a fan of the series. I'm just open minded. I killed Elite 11 and Live 14. I declared this series dead after last years game. You can go back and check


Also this has been my stance on sliders for years. Even when EA had them in their games. This is also well document here at OS. So please don't try to paint my opinion as some blind loyal fan making excuses. That couldn't be any farther from the case.

Sliders feel like a short cut for designers. The only reason sliders are needed is because the game isn't tune enough out of the box. I understand my opinion is rare, but that's how I see it.

So, you are claiming that every game that didn't have sliders was great out of the box?

I'd rather be stuck with a game that needs tweaking - and be able to do it, than a game that is great for some but not for me - and I can't tweak it.

Edit: How did you like Sony's basketball series on PS3?
