I wonder what it means by penalty traits. Majorly disappointed there's nothing there to nerf fumbles

When the NBA 2K patch came out yesterday for XBOX it made me hope that we'd get the Madden one today. I'm off today too, I love it when a plan comes together.

There's nothing wrong with fumbles.

I would love to know how this works. Is there an option to save the game in the pause menu or can I just shut the system off mid-game?
 
# 10 TrapBasedGod @ 10/04/16 09:40 AM
Did they fix the qb throwing it away as soon as a defender sheds a lineman?

Maybe not for you but I'm averaging 4 a game. I started doing PTM and that went down to 3.
 
# 12 rich8682 @ 10/04/16 09:41 AM
so the new classes are now in offline franchise, right?

Huge patch. I know these notes are only an overview so it'll be interesting to see what else is in.

Anyone know if they fixed kicking stats in franchise? I admit it might have been in the list and I missed it.

@userpic24 Yes. There are lots of additional fixes, the notes are just a high level overview.
I figured this was the case, now we've just got to play the game to discover all the other fixes.

That seems like a user issue. Are you getting a majority of your fumbles from your QB?

I doubt anyone has had time to play yet and you can read the patch notes to see if it says anything about it. [emoji2]

Nope, QB, RB, TE, WR. It's completely random, tried covering ball with RB, still happens. Happens with Fumbles turned to 99 or 0 too!
 
# 20 Smallville102001 @ 10/04/16 09:51 AM
Glad this is out but darn looks like CPU QB not wanting to run with the ball was not fixed. Not a surprise because I think this is a hard thing to fix considering it was a issue last year to and end up worse after patches and again was a problem this year.
