While NBA Live 15 has shown some positive progress this year, one area the game hasn't seemed to progress is in its roster updates. As of this writing on Wednesday morning, a roster update has not arrived for NBA Live 15 to update what is already a dynamically changing NBA Season with several big name players out of action.
Last year, NBA Live 14 barely updated its rosters, with huge chunks of time passing between updates. This was in the face of several promises that rosters would be adequately maintained throughout the season. This year seems to already be following that same path at the moment, but it's possible the trend could be reversed as the NBA season continues to heat up.
On top of that, there are mysterious updates to player tendencies via Synergy Sports. Some players who haven't played a minute of a game this year, such as Steve Nash, are receiving tendency updates which are supposed to come from real NBA game data. It is possible Nash's data simply got an update thanks to a recalculation of some past tendencies, but the lack of transparency on how and why players are updated via Synergy Sports definitely adds to the confusion with the feature.
Since we can't update the rosters on our own, this is a big deal. If and when we receive any news on anything NBA Live 15 rosters related, we'll be sure to pass it on.
Update (4 p.m.): It appears a roster update for NBA Live 15 finally dropped this afternoon. We'll have details in a separate post when we get them.
