  1. They've added so much these past couple years that I had to think pretty hard about what I'm even hoping for.
    I guess my pipedream of pipedreams would be:
    - Something to make the offseason feel like a bigger deal/more of a living thing. I don't think Free Agency has been done right by any sports game honestly. I'm not even sure what the specific idea should be, but it should be more than just plugging in a contract number and hitting advance day and hoping for the best. It should feel like more of a recruiting process IMO.
    - Bringing back D-League/adding the ability to draft-and-stash. The D-League doesn't even have to be anything super deep, but I really enjoyed the old days when I'd take a flier on someone that was lighting it up in the D-League and see if he could produce in the NBA.
    - Making better auto-generated draft classes. This is of course a same ole same ole request. Wider variety of prospects (both in terms of skillset and appearance), potential 2nd round steals, etc.
    Hell yeah! Can. Not. Wait. I'm so glad they seem to have ditched their terrible info release schedule from last year. We've seen screensshots already and are getting info on my favorite mode off the bat. Awesome. Now I'm gonna do my part tomorrow after reading the blog and preorder (maybe even grab two and gift one to my little bro again) to show my appreciation.
    Not getting my hopes up like I did last year but so far 2k18 is sounding promising. Then again, So did 2k17 around this time last year lol.
    Hopefully sim and progression mechanics were fixed and improved which is my main hope among a few other things like better draft classes, d-league and a more detailed/realistic offseason

    The Wolves are going to regret choosing Jeff Teague over Rubio. Mark my words.
    I concur. Jazz have big plans for Rubio along with Gobert. They believe he can be a J Kidd clone (seriously, straight from the GM's mouth

    Excited for this. I feel like 2K is typically on a 2 year cycle with their vision for development (even years). Last year was clearly rushed. Add the fact that NBA Live is making a comeback this year, we may see a BIG step forward for this series.

    I made a thread about this not too long ago I swear it's true seems every other year the game is a lot better then the year before at least on the new consoles.
    Myleague is such an underrated mode and the best mode the game has to offer in my opinion. If they update the CAP (hopefully add tattoo options) that would go a long way with us myleague guys who go deep in the mode.
    This is the best and deepest mode in the game right now, and they can still do so much more with it. Hoping for increased customization (rebrands w/alternates or just adding alternates, picking award winners/All-Stars) and presentation (more in-depth news, radio feed, more realistic draft, Highlight shows). Expanding on that while hopefully fixing at least some of the flaws in the gameplay will make this game great.
    This mode is so incredibly deep already . I think this maybe one of their best work in the series. Those modes alone.
    Unfortunately I don't have any interest in offline gaming anymore. But this would've been a dream for me in the past.
    What are you guys expecting ? I know my league online could use some love.

    True words. This mode is incredible. The people in charge of this aspect of the game are at a level right now where I don't even have to doubt whether there's going to be a weird step backward or a strange re-imagining or anything bizarre like that. Instead, I feel like I can just be excited about what they come up with next, because I'm pretty sure it's going to be great.
    My only real hope is that the on-court gameplay grabs me enough this year to push me deeper into this mode.
    I'm expecting simulated stats to be addressed and I'm expecting them to announce better looking generated rookie CAPs (and hopefully a new CAP system in general)
    Otherwise, I will be disappointed

    What do you mean by simulated stats?
    Do you think they're too high?
    Not calling you out - I've just seen this a few times and I wanna make sure I understand what the community is calling for.

    Too unrealistic & inconsistent IMO. Sometimes guys like Curry can finish a season averaging 16ppg smh

    16 for curry is definitely unrealistic but one thing I do want to see is some variability and unpredictability.
    I want to see some breakouts and some fall outs. Maybe not to that extreme but it needs to better represent real life. Break outs happen. Fall outs happen.

    Can't wait mainly to see some screenshots. Been wondering how this game would look since 2K17 came out lol. Excited

    Just remembered that the Nike jerseys could change how rebranding in MyLeague works.
    I am a bit surprised that info like this is being released tomorrow. I thought that they wait until early August to start dropping info. I don't think they will flood us with info, but I believe that is plausible that they will drop info weekly or even bi-weekly now.
    I think it is great for them drop MyGM/League first. It is a hardcore guy's go-to mode and main thing they care about. But it still has use for other modes of sim stats and generated players are better.
    I think the Casual fans favorite is Park/Pro-Am. I think My Player info will be released before that. My Player is usually one of the last info to be dropped. So I believe late August is expected

    That's why I'm not raising my hopes up until I see a wwe like CAP system install.

    -MORE Options and customization in rebranding. Like a lot (REMOVE COURTS FROM ARENAS)
    -Be able to add images to a court anywhere, and multiple
    -Untie shoes from rosters
    -Download a CAP system
    -Revamp free agency, make it like recruiting where you can schedule meetings with free agents and offer pitches to them (like team history, current roster, current head coach, fan loyalty, cap space, etc.). And make it so a free agent may not even want to schedule a meeting. And let us be able to edit all the pitch importance ratings for players.
    -Make everything calendar based. For example, the lottery happens WAY earlier than it does now.
    -Options to be able to trade players that are injured.
    -Make sign & trades possible. I dont really know how, but make it happen please.
    -Include G-League and maybe even Euro Leagues
    -Better random draft classes.
    -More CBA features included.
    -More jerseys in rebrands.
    -More rebrand slots.
    -Get the SimWorld guys into 2K. Those guys are insane.

    They did the exact same last year. MyLeague news was released on July 19th after screen shots etc. It's the same pattern they've always used.

    Yeah they didn't want to show the game after that lol.
    We had to get bootleg Instagram leaks and then Willie Reed Jr came through for us and forced their hand.
    It was hilarious... see how my thank you post got so many likes

    Really? The whole roll out from last year left a bad taste in my mouth. Just felt like they didn't release anything until a few weeks before release. :nocomprende: Be that as it may, I'm excited for today and 2K18.
    Edit: It looks like we're a month ahead with the screenshots, so hopefully that's indicative of a new (better) approach.
    Im hoping for a Home court advantage mechanic. And progressive fatigue (that actually matters). And more highlights packages/narration between games. Maybe some narrative?
    I’m praying for a more organic progression/regression system, not so reliant on that stupid potential rating. I want to see guys fluctuate based on PERFORMANCE + potential.
    Simulated stats, PLEASE have these fixed. (Although mike Lowe has a great slider set for team training to off set this)
    Contracts and free agency. 2K17 was on the right track with this, implementing a few new contract rules and such, but the logic needs a complete overhaul. Cap space, available money, contract demands, etc. all need to be tinkered and updated to match the new NBA
    While we have some amazing draft class creators, (Embracethepace, the fictional draft universe, Jazzman, etc) the default generates classes need a lot of love. Again, they made strides last year, but they have to bring it.
    I’d like to see more possible rule changes in the off season
    Disgruntled superstars requesting trades (I’m looking at you, Kyrie)
    Whatever you do, 2K , let us keep the ability to edit any and everything. I’m so looking forward to this blog today. I can’t wait!

    What would you like to see done with progressive fatigue? I think sometimes the fatigue system is too harsh. I can't play Brandan Wright for 30 minutes per game without him getting the fatigue symbol next to his name in my rotations

    It should probrably be best used as a "Progression rate" type thing instead of a "max overall"
    Hoping they address tendencies and some way to create draft classes easier.
    I would KILL for better arena atmosphere, though. That could get me to buy the game if the gameplay is improved and the atmosphere sounds like a living, excited crowd. Every game should be an event, IMO.

    For the bolded part, I've been to some QUIET regular season NBA games. There are dozens and dozens of games that go down where the crowd is just lackluster the entire game, especially between two lackluster teams.
    Now, if we're talking Playoff atmosphere, I agree. They need to step it up big time in that department.
    To be honest, I'm really don't care about articles when it pertains to this game. This game is truly at a stage of "Show Me" talking about this game means nothing to me, because so much is always broken or doesn't work properly.

    Oh, I realize that. I get that not all NBA games are loud and exciting. Being that this is a video game, however, I would be more than happy to have every game treated like it was an event.
    Better yet, make the marquee games (the nationally televised ones I guess on the schedule) have a more live, excited feel. Personally, I would like them to expand the rivalry dynamic introduced last year to include specific types of crowds ... so if the Lakers were taking on the Celtics, make that feel like a regular season playoff game, a do or die atmosphere where the crowd lives or dies on every shot.
    The playoff atmosphere needs work. Too many quiet games. Crowd chants are off track sometimes (cheering for defense while I'm on offense despite me being the home team) and the transitions between offensive and defensive cheers are poor.

    I hope to God they did away with the keeper year system for MyLeague Online. That alone will make it so much better.

    I hope that they give both options together. ;)
    Really hoping MYLeague online is a full fledged franchise mode. Not the weird keeper stuff. Me and my friends have been waiting years for this. Hopefully its there this time around.
    All I want for NBA 2k18 is the gameplay fixed. Excessive forced turnovers, 3 point shooters going 2-20 and missing alot of those being wide open (not even off the dribble), the help defense and switch defense AI, I could keep going.

    Completely agree. I got sucked in by these blogs last year and all I'm interested in is gameplay this year. I'm not a magpie so shiny new things don't interest me in the slightest, but we just can't have another year of terrible gameplay.
