NBA 2K16 News Post


As mentioned earlier today, the NBA 2K16 patch #6 has already arrived for PlayStation 4 users, weighing in at 2.4GB. As soon as we get the patch notes, we will update this post. Until then, let us know what you are seeing.

Xbox One users will see the patch later, no official ETA has been given.

UPDATE: Here are the patch notes.
  • Updated player portraits for a number of players.
  • Tuned the effectiveness of long outlet passes for players with the Break Starter badge.
  • Delay branching from Kobe Bryant Back size-up.
  • Re-worked size-up dribble launches to prevent unnaturally explosive first steps.
  • Tune miss chances for deep downcourt and cherry picking.
  • Dock vertical and rebounding when you go behind the basket. Donít reset 3-in-the-key offense timer in baseline behind paint for human controlled blacktop players.
UPDATE #2: The patch has arrived for Xbox One users.

UPDATE #3 (5-19): The patch is now available for PC users.

R.I.P. Speed Boosting, you won't be missed....

No speed boosting and tuning down Break Starter? LMAO!!
 
# 6 KingTocco @ 05/02/16 07:27 PM
They nerfed break starter! Let's go!

Wow. I am hoping you can still explode out of dribbles. But this might be amazing if the boosting back and forth is gone.

Breakstarter has been tuned. Uh oh lol.

Awwwwwwwwww ****! This is cool!

I honestly think 2K nerfed Break Starter so streamed games of the RTTF tournament didn't look like complete cheese.

It's great to hear that breakstarter and speed boosting have finally been reduced, but I wish that this patch had come sooner than the final weekend of Road to the Finals qualifying.

I guarantee you that 90% of the teams who have already qualified for Road to the Finals got there by abusing the breakstarter badge.

I don't play in those modes. But I've seen a few videos around of it. It's usually when the point guard has the ball. And he is doing that high dribble and is speeding by defenders (stuck in mud) Even defenders with 99 Lateral Quickness have trouble sticking to the ball handler.

The only way to slow the offense player down was to either foul them or bump them really hard (the hardest to do) or back up into the paint.

Just look up NBA2K 16 speed boost. You'll long videos on it.

Online? Offline? What mode are you playing in that the game is too slow now?
