That's what you get for being America's top hat Nick. Hopefully you get it soon!

This seems like a high-quality patch. I'm on the fence with this game. I really want a new NBA experience, and I'm happy that there's actual competition in the NBA video game arena! However, I'm wary to spend the full amount on this. Wish I had EA Access.

I saw EA updated the Cav's court so I wanted to check it out. Also wanted to see if they snuck in face scan for Elfrid Payton (they didn't yet) so I took the Magic to cleveland.

The court looked great. LeBron, Love and Kyrie destroyed me.

The Cav's jumped out to a 10-4 lead and then kept increasing the lead.

I was down by 18 at Half. Midway through the 3rd when it got to be a 22 pt cav's lead I switched sides. Holy smokes, no wonder, the Cav's are amazing to use.

So far playing the Early Access and then the full game the main thing I am impressed with is bad teams are bad and good teams are really good. The ratings really matter and if this is synergy's doing then ALL HAIL SYNERGY. This is the first EA game that I have played (and I have played a ton of them) where team ratings matter. So I am sitting here thinking who I can use to beat the Cav's and jeez who to beat the Spurs with?

Every other EA game I choose a lower rated team just so I don't destroy the CPU.

In my experience with NBA live 15, you choose a weak team and you are going to struggle against better teams.

The patch has smoothed things out. I have only played 2 games post patch so I am still noticing/investigating the changes.

Just like the EA Access version (XB1), the game is still way too easy on Superstar level. It feels like I'm playing on Pro level. Beat the Cavs, Spurs and OKC all with the Utah Jazz (on the road) and the closest game is where I won by 12 points (against Cleveland). Wanted to play the top 3 teams using one of the worst teams to prove this point.

I have yet to lose a game in Live 15.

How are you winning?

Like tell me some secrets. I am not joking either.

Are you catch and shooting? Because if I pass it I see a green shoot icon but if wait at all the cpu will close in and turn my icon red.

I can do some dribble moves to get penetration but nothing is guaranteed.

The CPU can drive on me pretty easily but they have that videogame force field on their D end, if you drive they push you back and there is some auto pick up dribble thing that happens. Meanwhile I body the CPU up and they can retain their dribble.

CPU also backside rebounds way better than my team does.

Just give me 2 or 3 things to try.

Yeah I want hear it too.

The game is a challenge especially after the update and the cpu goes on some unstoppable streaks.

It's challenging, fun and rewarding all wrapped in one.

This game is really good.

Ratings only? Does that mean release doesn't factor in at all?

Yeah curious about this. I read here, not sure what thread, but I saw a post where a user said that the CPU shoots 3's like crazy on PRO but the shooting percentages are way better on All Star.

I can tell you if you play to far off on D, then yes the cpu is gonna jack it up all game. Especially shooters but that happens in the REAL LIFE NBA lol.

i agree which is why i refused to use my LUT team until i got better players plus it doesnt help if your not good yet on the sticks on this game lol, but overall you going to work hard if you using a low rated team or player in this game
