  1. This is crazy... it makes me wonder whether a two year cycle would actually be beneficial for the end product. This is patch no#4 that's equal to a fortnightly shopping list which means that every year, the consumer purchases - at full price - a beta.
    Most notable changes...to me
    - Five new shoes have been added to the game: BBB ZO2

    I play with Lonzo in MyLeague...give me a break.
    All the CAP stuff.
    - Attempting icon passing while posting up will no longer disengage you from post.

    YEEES. Finally. Posting up and anticipating a cut was a pain. Thank God they fixed that.
    - Fixed an issue with putback layups that would sometimes cause them to hit the front rim or bottom of the backboard.

    This was particularly annoying. Randle is all alone under the basket I go for the putback layup and he hits a rim. Like wow.
    - Addressed a case where defensive settings inside the Coaches Clipboard were not sticking after being changed.

    I guess no changes to matchups being funky, huh?
    MyGM/MyLEAGUE

    All of the MYLEAGUE CHANGES...
    NOTE: All patch fixes will work in your existing game mode saves.

    Ah good...no need to re-start my all-games-played-20-games-played MyLeague.
    Also don't really care for other stuff but nice to see improvements there as well.
    Gotta say...I'm not happy with jerseys and shoes being added in roster updates again. I just want to edit a roster and get into MyLeague without having to worry about art being added that we won't have access to without starting over.

    I can't for the life of me figure out why they continue to do this :brickwall:brickwall:brickwall

    Yea this is a bummer but was one reason why I didn't start my user roster yet, but any way you slice it sucks because you will always have to start over to get the new updates.
    Looks like a solid patch. A lot of community issues addressed.
    - I am surprised they did not fix the "Defensive Matchups" glitch.
    - They did note that there was an issue with "gap" overriding ACE and player adjustments. Will this alleviate the "Otto Porter" glitch and defenders running from their assignement, leaving knock down shooters wide open?
    Did they disable the stupid region lock that prevents people from joining the Pro Am arena / Park?
    Because that should’ve been up there on their list.
    My friend and I were able to get into the same Pro-AM arena entering from different neighborhoods, didn't need that countdown non-sense. It's just us 2, but hopefully no problems when it's all 5 from different coasts. I'll know more tonight when everybody is on.
    About to test squad invites.....
    Holy smokes. It worked the first time. Fingers crossed that this isn't a fluke.
    We did it a second time, it worked.
    What a time
    I’m sorry but jerseys & shoes being added through roster updates is completely unacceptable, people, like me, basically have to wait until they finally get everything right thru another 3-4 patches before we can even start a MyGM/MyLeague. why are we being a sold a game that we can’t even properly play?????
    As others have said, surprised still no fix on the matchup switching bug after timeouts, that is annoying.
    The other thing I'm wondering about is MyLeague/GM issues like centers signing billion dollar contracts, star players not getting any interest in FA and others.
    I'm just not really willing to start a MyLeague until those issues are fixed. I mean, Embiid got a big deal, but even the Sixers wouldn't give him a BILLION dollars after just 31 games...
    so all these teams that come out with new jersey’s during the Holiday won’t even be able to be accessed by people who have already started a MyGM/MyLeague??? same with shoes, this patch is adding 5 shoes and only 1 pair (the BBB’s) which he barely even plays in himself are the only ones being added?
    i hope Live makes a huge improvement by next year
    When a team quits out of a Pro-Am game, the remaining team will no longer obtain the badge progress and progress of the team that quit out.
    So if I understand this correctly, you are penalizing me for the other team quitting early? Why not just end the game then? This shhhh don't make any sense.
    Looks like a solid patch. Minus a few items, it looks like they mostly left the gameplay alone. Good.
    Also, we can we chill with all the "We're beta tester!" comments and whining??? As far as I'm concern, "incomplete" games and patches is the norm nowadays. And plus...I don't care if you give me the cliche comment about consumers shouldn't pay $60 for an incomplete game, because I will counter with the statement that no video game is perfect.
    Was hoping for updated player portraits and fixing the shot clock to include tenths of seconds (why they took this out makes no sense) and got neither. Damn.

    Wait what! That's bull! Might as well quit with the rest of the bums.

    I really hope they just worded it incorrectly---that wouldn't make ANY sense.

    I read this as, there was a bug that gave the remaining team the badge progress of the other team. So if your matchup had progressed some on a badge, if they quit you get their progress like highlander or something. I could be wrong though. I didn't even know this was an existing bug if I interpret it correctly.
    Are MyCareer shoe deals fixed? They told me personally that they had a fix for it and it would be in the next patch, but I dont see it in the patch notes. They told me that at least 3 weeks ago.

    Come on 2k
    I saw all the notes and got excited.
    Then I saw nothing about body edit being put back in, or court lighting being improved. (BOTH THINGS THAT WERE GOOD/IN THE GAME LAST YEAR)
    As usual, 2K couldn't care less about art issues.

    Updated player portraits will probably make it in during the start of the season when the official Opening Night rosters are out. Just a hunch, though.

    That'll never happen so we might as well stop bringing it up.
    Easy fix: If you think the game is in a beta state every year at launch, don't buy it until Black Friday or Christmas. Or just don't buy it at all.
    In regards to the patch: Fixed that bug where the fantasy drafts would ignore certain players. Honestly didn't think that would happen. I'm VERY happy! Can't wait to try it out!

    Another round of they are aware of the ACE menu. This is a joke, 2 dev cycles 16 patches and they still can't fix the ACE menu. Broken menus is a broken game and that equates to a sub par product, not worthy of anyone's praise.

    Did they implement any possibility to change bodies for existing players (WINGSPAN etc)?

    No and they shouldn't. Should of remade your character before investing so much time into him.

    Yes. I got leonard on curry and green on durant to test, then I called a timeout, and after that they still on the same.
    Also I set tight and deny ball on curry and moderate and leave him on livingston.
    In the 2nd qarter, the cpu changed curry to livingston and then I called another timeout to check in the timeout's menu if livingston is as I set him before... And it was :D
    It's on cpu btw but i think online is ok too because the glitch was on both

    Wow tapatalk turned into an ad fest. Haven’t used this in a minute and it’s absolutely cluttered in ads. Anyway..
    Saw the BBB kicks are in. Will they be automatically assigned to Lonzo? And if so, will this also apply to MyCareer mode?
    This is why I hate starting MyCareer so early before the season. All the trades (I still have Melo on the Knicks, Wade on the bulls) and rating updates aren’t applied but I was wondering if Lonzo is still going to rock the 2K generics after I update in MyCareer

    If they're not gonna add more hairstyles, at least fix the hairlines that start on the top of the heads. My lord.
    And why are eyebrows and some beards gray instead of black?? (when on a black player)
    It's just amazing how little 2K cares about art. It really is.

    The top of the head and behind the ear hairlines are cancerous.
    I appreciate the staff at 2K very much for fixing the Pro-Am accessories issue! Individuality is back. As you can tell by this previous comment below I was not happy! I AM NOW SUPER HAPPY!
    Hornetz
    Yes I agree playing with no accessories is absolutely an eye sore. No knee pads, no arm sleeves, just generic looking black and white guys! Wheres the player individuality? Existed before.. I won't call it 1 step forward 2 steps because the game has improved vastly this year, however, this is incredulous.

    Lighting seems to be fixed. Players and uniforms aren’t brightly lit in dim environments.

    So you saying instead of them brightening the courts to match the unis, they just made the unis more dull?
    :lol:
    Sounds about right.
    So has 2k ever performed balancing patches for the park?
    things like:
    "toned down the speed of centers in park"
    "toned down sharpshooters ability to shoot from half court"
    "increased speed of lower weight centers" etc
    Or is this the unbalanced arcadey fun time park we get for years to come?
    If thats the case I feel sorry for anyone who made a C that wasn't max weight height
    And there’s still a lot of team up issues that they’re not fixing at all . My friends and I have been really annoyed wit it

    Are you sure you're not missing something? One of my friends had this issue and he just went round all the stores/studio to see if a cutscene was clogging everything up, he found a couple he'd missed and he got his shoe deal. Also check your phone to check you don't have any outstanding objectives.

    Yo im in that same boat with you, I started mycareer already before all the trades went down and im rated a 76 (decided to grind instead of buying vc) wish there was a way they could let you update to the new rosters without having to start your mycareer completely over and lose everything you been grinding for. I played a game last night against the bulls and its just a eye sore knowing that hes with the cavs now.

    Lots of good fixes here but I was really expecting those myLeague billion dollar contracts and the bird rights issue to be addressed with this patch. I don't see how you can really make any progress with myLeague with those two glaring issues.

    I’ll check the cutscenes but I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten all of em . I do all my objectives . The only objective I have is the win five games in Park with a Gatorade shirt(which I’ve done with like 20 wins but it’s not going away) so idk it’s pretty annoying tho

    Same here :( Been waiting for this to start my ML. So frustrating :/
    When a team quits out of a Pro-Am game, the remaining team will no longer obtain the badge progress and progress of the team that quit out.

    Am I missing something here. So if my team is winning lets say in the 4th quarter, and the opposite team all rage quick. All my Badge progress is lost for that game?
    If so that sucks, and I can see troll team abusing that

    Can 2K please add the option to edit players' current wingspan, body length, & shoulders?!
    Please.

    It's my war since this game came out, but it looks like we are fighting windmills.
    Maybe you and me are just 2 modern time Don Quixotes...we must be crazy asking for a feature that's been in any sports game since 2000, and that actually was in last year title...
    Just played my first quarter since the patch (Play Now) and thought the results were a touch... off.
    My Celtics at home versus the Wiz
    I shot 6/13, 2/6 from three.
    They shot 0/14, 0/6 from three.
    Didn't touch sliders, though I did notice defensive settings and matchups are working now so I'm sure that helped but seems a bit much. Anyone else seeing CPU struggle to score?
    Ok...just based on the notes this is an awesome patch. And the myLeague and CAP fixes I was waiting on as well. Nice!
    Also...FOAMPOSITES BACK YESSSSSSS

    Yeah it works . But now I can’t equip my pro am shoes I bought anymore

    Yep, spent 20k for team PE sneakers but I cant put them on anymore...
    Edit, they're equipped you just cant change them.
    They didn't fix the timeout during freethrow problem where the users can't see the players and the camera gets stuck in a weird focus spot.

    Lots of good fixes here but I was really expecting those myLeague billion dollar contracts and the bird rights issue to be addressed with this patch. I don't see how you can really make any progress with myLeague with those two glaring issues.

    Yeah I can't really delve into this game very much until these are resolved. It's disappointing

    Gotta say...I'm not happy with jerseys and shoes being added in roster updates again. I just want to edit a roster and get into MyLeague without having to worry about art being added that we won't have access to without starting over.

    Yeah i feel the same way. Why dont it just carry over without having to start over
    What happened to the BBB Zo2? I can’t assign them to Lonzo when editing the roster.. lol what? In fact I don’t even see them in the shoe editor at all.
    Are they only available in MyCareer for some reason?

    What is the bird rights issue? I thought the only issue in free agency was the RFA bug, which they patched.

    What irritates me the most is 2k will not update the player modules in the game!! They don't have the rosters up to date. I'm not a NBA Live fan but at least they try and get the players with correct hairstyles, facial hair and they put tattoo's on the rookies. NBA 2k just don't care. Not all of us play on PC where you can mod the players.
    BA2929
    That'll never happen so we might as well stop bringing it up.
    Easy fix: If you think the game is in a beta state every year at launch, don't buy it until Black Friday or Christmas. Or just don't buy it at all.
    In regards to the patch: Fixed that bug where the fantasy drafts would ignore certain players. Honestly didn't think that would happen. I'm VERY happy! Can't wait to try it out!

    Or the game can be ready at launch? I mean theyve been making millions on this series for years now.
    NewBreed1
    If they're not gonna add more hairstyles, at least fix the hairlines that start on the top of the heads. My lord.
    And why are eyebrows and some beards gray instead of black?? (when on a black player)
    It's just amazing how little 2K cares about art. It really is.

    BINGO!! I wish they would hurry up and let their current art team retire or something, it's really ridiculous. To go from what 2k did on Xbox with NFL 2k5, they should be light years ahead of sports games details and graphics on these current generation systems!! Go steal EA's or something! You get EA's art team with 2k's faces and you'll have the most gorgeous sports game ever! 2K is just so lame! From those wack a** 2k shoes to arena lighting. Clothes you have to spend VC on, lame! Body types, lame! Muscles, lame! hair on CAP, lame! Created shoes, lame!!!
    When is the Pro-Am int foul/double team glitch going to be fixed? You press these buttons, it makes the defense become hyper aware. Shouldn't happen. Pure cheese.
    #PROAMLOCKOUT is now trending on twitter. Apparently 2k has broken the mode after patch 4 released. This is deja vu all over again. Same thing happened in 17. Players are randomly getting kicked from games. Patches fix one thing just to break another SMH.
    I don't know where to start. Still no custom rosters for MYGM. The changes for MyGM are really none existent.  But the fact that 2k acted like they were going to improve the CAPs, is disappointing. They added a few facial hair styles that still aren't that great,  you still can't change skin tone & the new facial hair doesn't show very well on darker tones. As far as face sculpting they didn't change anything they just added numbers to the bar scale. I am curious as to why badges in my career are not available for CAPs and modes outside of MyCareer. The Zo shoes are only for my career, can't equip them to created players.  A lot of choices are so questionable & im getting to a point where the great gameplay doesn't make up for 2ks selfish/greedy/flat out dumb decisions. 
    Btw they fixed the starting lineup introduction by adding music when the home team is being introduced, and also the PA announcer now says “starting at small forward” when you have a SG starting at the SF position.
    Good fix 2K!
    I’m on Xbox. Started 2k up and got notification for a 4.48GB update. Hoping it’s the Patch.

    The Pistons court update is a nice surprise. Looks quite sharp now. I'd actually been avoiding using the new arena due to the court art rough draft. It's a good year to be a fan of the Pistons and 2K. First the '89 team was finally outfitted in their correct uniforms and now the '18 squad has their real floor. I'm appreciative.
    I understand Create-a-Player alterations were going to be limited via patch so the addition of more facial hair, body size change (with weight), and eyebrows and eye color is actually more than I was expecting.
    Also, I loved the "stepping on defender's foot injuries" but I'm glad to see a patch for it roll through. It was almost happening every game I played for a while.
    I'm seriously disappointed in 2k. I've been a fan of 2k for years. I stopped playing Live years ago. But honestly how can Live be out doing 2K on the player appearances?? Come on 2k step up the effort in updating each player every year!! I don't play my player!! I like playing my league!! I have to wait all year just to start my league because you can't add all the players in the game or gleague players. This gets old!!!!

    They didn't break it, it's been broken, people haven't been able to play on a pro-am team with their friends from different coast since the game dropped, it's just now it's becoming completely ridiculous that a huge online mode has been broken for a full month and 4 patches.
    2K SERIOUSLY should be ashamed, this is complete basura and I honestly wish I didn't blow 60 dollars to be a beta tester.

    Y'all do realize players have to go get scanned to be updated right?So that's on the player not 2k.

    If they wanted, they could add different hair/facial hair on guys without scanning.

    they did it in 2k15... they changed Dwight Howard to his little fauxhawk and a few other players... they could if they really wanted to
    the cap system is still a joke... they just added a few new styles and the option to change the eye color and eyebrows... they just superficially changed the look of the sliders lol

    Personally it doesn't bother me that much but 2k is very inconsistent when it comes to the "authenticity" parts of their game lol
    Just realized my nor my signature shoe and colorway shoe is available for selection in closet before playing a nba game. Thank goodness I’m still wearing the colorway ones. Do you still get extra VC for those? Because I don’t want to wear the ugly signature ones I made
    itsmb8
    Are MyCareer shoe deals fixed? They told me personally that they had a fix for it and it would be in the next patch, but I dont see it in the patch notes. They told me that at least 3 weeks ago.

    I think the shoe deal is broke on one of my players. I'm pass the all Star game and I still don't have a deal. I have 2 other players that got the deals way earlier. I even got to create the custom colorways way before the all Star break on one character

    Looks like a solid patch. Minus a few items, it looks like they mostly left the gameplay alone. Good.
    Also, we can we chill with all the "We're beta tester!" comments and whining??? As far as I'm concern, "incomplete" games and patches is the norm nowadays. And plus...I don't care if you give me the cliche comment about consumers shouldn't pay $60 for an incomplete game, because I will counter with the statement that no video game is perfect.
    I'm with you on that, every game that comes out has some sort of issue from Sports to Adventure Games, doesn't matter. Be glad they can patch it and move on!

    People pay full price for a game that won't even be completely fixed, updated & useable with all the shoes & uniforms until the prices start to actually drop ffs

    Did they change the who to guard meter to be 3x bigger and with a white outline?
    It so obnoxious I can't stand to see it on the screen, but it's a detriment to turn it off and not know who the AI expects you to guard.
    I don't get why they would change something like this and make it worse for no reason, with so many bigger unaddressed issues.

    GM Mode is the only reason I paid for this game and they're talking about how they fixed some shoes. They need to fix the fact that the game is unplayable.
    MyGM/MyLEAGUE
    "Addressed a fantasy draft issue where certain players were being incorrectly omitted from the selected player pool."
    That's important. Thank you.
    "The CPU will no longer override user-made decisions during the Qualifying Offers offseason time period.
    CPU teams will now be more conscientious of when they should renounce the rights to their players during the offseason."
    Also important to the basic GM experience. Thank you.
    But I don't see much big stuff on here.
    l really hope to see the core issues that are totally ruining the game for many users be addressed.
    I haven't seen the billion dollar contracts (I'm PC, if it makes a difference) but my main two obstacles are bird rights and overall problems with teams not having cap space and players demanding super high salaries and not being at all responsive to the market. Then, at the end of free agency, you have top players signing 1 year deals for almost the NBA minimum because nobody has cap space and they never budged off of their demands for 20 million annually.
    Is it to much to ask to fix the contracts for GM mode? You either draft players, trade for them or sign them as free agents and all the contracts expire eventually. Is it too much to ask for #1 market equilibrium so that players don't price themselves out and then sign for much less than offers they had (and could still have!) and #2 contracts that work so that I can sign guys I have budget for and bird rights to?
    That is the very basics, it is the essence of what MyGM and MyLeague are.
    why drop 1 patch to fix miniscule things like adding 5 shoes no one will even wear this season, I mena I get to fix gameplay issues but do they really think adding 5 shoes at a time is going to tide us over until we get the ones players will actually be wearing? why not just drop all the new ones at once

    I really wish I had waited to buy this game until after christmas... I'm on Xbox One so there aren't many good roster makers outside of the Simworld crew and trifecta and their projects usually aren't done until after new years and they are the only thing that saves myleague because that mode is a **** show even with their yearly patches to fix it... this game is always useless the first few months because it's basically a full priced beta... so many other games I could have bought to tide me over until after christmas... not like I play park anyway... myleague is always broken because they add new features that basically mess the mode up even further... I really wish I had just waited

    They gonna add the Curry 4's yet !!

    Don't expect shoes that haven't dropped at retail, unless with a special agreement with 2K Sports beforehand, to be released in the game.

    Because you have guys gassing the devs up with this "best gameplay ever" BS. They are starting to smell themselves because what I thought were "consumers" act like they are on the dev team. Imagine pushing a button on any other product you buy and it doesn't work or a feature doesn't work. Would it be the best product ever?

    I was hoping they would fix the Custom jersey/court search feature and the most requested feature of all >>>sculpt editing

    So if you search for a term, like "sonics" it will look like the search didnt work, but if you hit the right trigger so that you toggle over to "myuploads" the search results will show up there for some reason. I randomly stumbled upon that and its huge because its such a pain in the *** to have to scroll through 500 pages to find a team manually.

    Everyone has their own preferences but a bunch of additional jerseys would have started to look really ugly really quick to me if things like your matchups not sticking after TOs were left untouched....wouldnt call that a miniscule fix at all.
    The left ankle thing I thought had already been fixed before this patch has I had played like 8 games in a row with out seeing one. The Varity of injures being increased I like the sound of that. Sounds like we should not see a injure ever game and should have some injures besides just ankles. Wonder what kind of injures are possible. Like can you get figure, arm, leg etc type of injures? Settings in the coaches clip board I am glad to hear. Was hoping to see time out logic and foul substation logic improved. Also looks like a few of the MYGM/MYLEAGUE issues have not been fixed yet.
    Because it's still broken... they took a lot of features out that were in last year (Caps and wingspan/body length/shoulder width edits on current players)... mygm and myleague is still unplayable even with all the new features they boasted about... the microtransactions are out of control... the gameplay is great but the package is still sloppy... and even the gameplay itself is sloppy when you take a closer look at it... the clipping is unbelievably bad especially with the new hip riding animations and most of the time they trigger even when you aren't driving to the hoop... there is a lot of visual ugliness too that bugs the hell out of me... like the knee accessories and shortsleeve shorts clipping into the player models as well... this game to me has the potential to be better than 2k11 was... but it still falls short in A LOT of areas... and don't give me that "no game is perfect" line either... for a game that is sucking us dry with this heavy pay to win model they had better be pretty close to perfect... maybe you can accept mediocrity but after almost a month of playing this game the shine is wearing off for me pretty quickly with a lot of these glaring issues... also what happened to the lighting from last year? it was damn near perfect and now it's just awful :brickwall:brickwall:brickwall:brickwall:brickwall:brickwall
    also Mike Wang lied about the layup timing... he said we wouldn't get penalized for timing the layup and that we would only get a boost if we let it go when the controller vibrated... clearly the layup meter is still in the game because it randomly appears and even has the feedback for it as well... why won't they just make the layup meter visible? obviously they didn't take layup timing out of the game and that's why there are so many missed layups... WE HAVE TO TIME THEM... but it's hard to get the feel for them without the visual feedback and the vibration feedback isn't cutting it because it vibrates no matter when you release the ball... not at the optimal release... same thing for the jumpshots...
    Bruh, I'm pretty sure they addressed the uniform problem in recent games so you don't have to worry about restarting a mode. But putting new uniforms in a roster update? Yeah I don't like the sound of that.

    I am not going to say no game is perfect because that is just a silly thing to say and sounds like making excuses for things. Yes I do see clipping but all games have some and I don't see more then most games. Most of the time I only see clipping if I go into replay mode and watch in slow motion. I skipped 17 so I am not sure about the lighting but this years game looks better then 15 and 16 after I thought the games graphics went backwards after 14 and is the best looking sports game I have ever seen. I have seen zero clipping on accessories zero. I hear people talk about the microtransactions but is that only for mycareer or something because I don't see any really in like the franchise modes?

    how can a game full of flaws and bugs can be the best sports game ever made ?
    2K still hasn't fixed the friends list not showing up in Play With Friends. Load up the game to play somebody only for the friends list to not load so an invite can't be sent until it does. Usually takes over 5 minutes for it to finally show up.
    Anybody have an idea why? Please fix it 2k.
    The CAP improvements sound promising, can't wait to check it out.
    Still unsure if the main MyLeague bugs have been fixed or not. There were so many i lost track of it. Can anybody confirm or deny?
    The Orlando Magic court still looks the same and it's wrong. Lighting in the Pistons arena looks great. Best lighting I've seen in the game so far.
