NBA 2K15 News Post


Last week on NBA 2KTV, Scott O'Gallagher showed us some winning tips from the 4-out 1-in set for NBA 2K15. This week he gives us 5 tips to break down the 2-3 zone defense. It's much longer this week (thanks to fan feedback), so make sure you check it out and let your voice be heard this week.

Also in the video is an interview with Hillsong NYC Pastor and mentor to the NBA stars, Carl Lentz along with 2K top plays of the week.

Fantastic OG. No reason this video shouldn't be in 16 in a tutorial or something.

Keep it up 2k.

One of the things this last week has shown is that, if 2k Does content like this for sim players, the sim community will surface and respond.

Czar shouted OS out this week for how the community is doing more positive stuff, like videos, to help new players learn how to play better. And it's true, sim players are stepping up a bit more and more. I think the more 2k steps up to engage us like this, the more sim players will respond and recruit others.

This is how to prevent the shot system whack-a-mole cycle 2k has gotten stuck in. Complaints about lack of green shots? There's an adjustment. Then it gets too overpowered. Complaints about that.

In SimHangout, Brooks pointed out how a lot of players are just scrubs. They're gonna cry. Czar sounds like 2k is responding to polls and such of user feedback, but that might not be the best way to do it. Feedback from the mass of casuals who don't understand how the game (it's many games really, with all the modes) works is not really quality feedback, and leads to bad resource allocation decisions on the dev side.

I'm not saying to discount that stuff, but doing things like what we have been seeing this week to help generate more power user feedback (that's what we are in simnation, power users) balances things out and helps correct for the ADHD feedback of casuals.

Let's all keep it up and stay positive. And like this video on Youtube.

Damn I remember when the OS community used to jump into this kind of thread and send praise. What has happened these past few years

I thought that was one of the best 2K tips. Great job Scott OG.

I wanted to share with you guys a tip to be able to practice his tips offline against the computer defense.

This is just making the right basketball play.

IM glad we're now at the stage where we, as Czar says, play basketball not video games.

Well, these days we can express that with a like and not a post. Hopefully those are counted and interpreted correctly by the video creator.

But since I'm posting now, and not just "liking", this statement requires no interpretation: I love seeing the X's and O's of a sport being broken down like this in a video game context. Can't get enough of it.

ScottOG is choosing some great topics to focus on. Running a 4-1 High Spread Pick and Roll + Breaking Down a Zone are great tips for causal and sim gamers alike. Is always hard to explain the simple things but OG does it smooth. He's making my tip videos look bad lol ...

What's cool is he breaks it down and explains basketball basics to make it accessible to all levels.

They made a real good point in the SimHangout about how a lot of players in this generation don't actually have basketball experience. They know games more than they know basketball. OG defines basic terms like the wing, the block, the top, etc. to talk about positioning.

Not saying you don't do that, but it's a general area where a lot of our library of sim teaching videos as a community can get better and more consistent. Like, for example, a video about how to ICE the pick and roll might want to start with a brief bit about what ICE is and whay anyone should care, before even showing how to do it in the game and when to use it.
