  1. Spawned into the neighbourhood with a brown shirt on
    Changed it...Quit out...Spawned into the neighbourhood with the brown shirt on again.
    *sigh
    Fix something, break something else.
    Edit: Only re-equips the brown shirt if you are shirtless.

    NBA 2K18 with the low key player art updates, first the player portraits now with the updated hairstyles and looks.
    This is why NBA 2K is at the top.

    The other game has been doing this all year though. LOL
    Nah Saro1 Eldridge still got that weird the weekend hair unfortunately. Maybe it’s my imagination but it seem like they gave players better necks and some players got minor touch ups like Alex Len but again might be just imagining things

    One way to check is Drummond.....did they shrink his head a little? There are a bunch of players with big head symdrome.

    No change for Drummond so must be my imagination he still looks strange
    Big head + fro makes for a comical looking player lol. At least players are getting updates so it's a good sign.
    I just wish they post up the notes so I can read what else were updated.

    You know they wont release notes untill Microsoft gets the patch.
    they seem to fix contesting shots effectiveness......
    no more heavily contested effects on jump shots when defender is out of position and not jumping to contest with hand up animation only results on lightly contest
    Yukk
    Did they fix god awful blowby animations and defense on skates in MYteam? every mode. Anybody know?

    Fixed for ya. :D
    Hopefully that horrible snatchback animation where the ball handler pushes off the defender (offensive foul?) and creates so much space for easy shots is removed or toned down also.
    Hmmmmm 4 L.A players got updated huh...I bet this art update was in the works when LD2K was still around. Oh well still much appreciated and shows that still do art updates during the year.
    Now let's hope they release more art updates in the upcoming future such as a Lebron beard, etc.

    Other than player updates anybody notice any changes gameplay wise?

    There seems to be more player control on offensive and defense, do more sliding around especially when not press turbo, easier to stay in front of guys.

    They adjusted the animation a bit just finished a game Celtics and Dertiot, smart vs Bradley and it was slower and you felt more in control was able to force him in a direction arms up forcing a contected shot he hit one and missed another attempt, defense feels good, tried to force a few layups in traffic and missed alot with Irving.

    Nice kind of nice to hear. I'll have to get over my feelings lol.
    I'm really happy we got an art update. We haven't had a mid season update in a while. Probably 3 years now. Now watch Ball grow his hair out now lol.

    I swear after every patch it always felt like the players were more grounded but then the roster update comes along and everything is back to a slip and slide defense. Hopefully this time it actually sticks....

    I hope something about foot-planting was fixed.
    I hate when offensive players get weird layup/driving animations that let them "travel" because 2K's foot-planting and step-counting doesn't work.

    Glad we can adjust the A.I’s Defense in walk on pro am now.
    Defense is much better. Played mycareer and my teammates in the knicks now can play d and sonetimes blow by. The abimation of blow by is still there bit toned dow a little bit. John wall lock me real good a few times also seems like paint has more help

    I have a tendency to make my sliders far too difficult for my skill level. I have lost 6 straight...actually, I have only won 1 in 13 pre patch 7. My first game after and im up 10 at the half. Something is different..no idea what..but it feels less hopeless..

    You’re not alone, played a few games split between park and walk on pro am and my guy wasn’t sliding around and I felt like if I took the right angles I could cut off my guy at a high clip.
    On the other side I usually absolutely abuse people with my slasher and the ride the hip animation, this felt a little harder to do and I’m ok with that, I felt the move was way too overpowered even if it worked to my advantage.
    Also greened wide open shots a few more times than usual. But that’s such a small sample size I wouldn’t say anything did or didn’t change with shooting.

    This is my problem. I felt like it was better for a short time, but it went back to slip n slide.
    I should be able to just lock in and focus. On other games I Can just press the LT button, and as long as I guess which side the player is going on I can play good defense. But on 2k, even if I guess the movements correctly I slide way out of play. Defense just seems impossible. Shouldn't be that hard to play good defense when your anticipating movement and locking in.

    What does that have to do with anything lol his model is from his rookie year
    Yes he's not highest of priorities? Have put a foot on the court this season. You think he's someone that should get a mid season scan. Yeah I say wait until next year.

    lol he was on their 2k tv show last season give break dude with this highest priority crap there are a bunch of people with outdated face scans that are high caliber and playing . Not to mention he’s been in there doing mo Cap dunks after his rookie year. Just like the rookies who got face scans but no tattoos added and some players who go tattoos removed that had them
    In the previous game. Just sounds like excuses
    This is the first time they updated players since 2k16 and that’s when they do called told us last year they could seamlessly update players and didn’t . I’m happy they update some guys but I still have the right to voice if I feel a player who was in one of the biggest trades in the offseason should have gotten an update. Especially a player who debuted in the year 2014.
    Defense is ****ed up after patch. It's way too easy to spam block button at the moment. Also feels like centers gain more speed from this badge which is absolutely ridiculous.
    Besides this patch, this post isn't about this patch or any other patch solely maybe and most probably in the wrong place but as the subject mattered here,too. Here we go..
    ----------------------
    Since the PS4 era (next/this gen) has begun each and every other 2k released on this generation and especially on PS4 console i'm talking about, why the game always feel different. It's not like 2k16 to 2k17 difference. It's that 2k15 was feeling different each and every other day i opened up the game, 2k16 was felt different each and every other day as well as 2k17 was felt different in days and also same applies to 2k18 as well.
    There is definitely a fundamental issue here i'm talking about offline/online together, i play the game each day of the series in those related years as the days go by..
    The most important difference that you feel day by day is the game speed and those changes that we feel about speed is related to how the shooting is felt different and how the defense is felt different and how the animations and movement and ground taking of players are felt different.
    I don't know but that's biggest issue of the game to me since PS4 generation has begun.

    Just played a couple of offline games. Nothing feels different, which is perfectly fine for me.

    This could be good and bad at the same time. There are some things that needs to be adjusted (defense, alley oop timing, for example).

    No one has answered this yet....Have CPU timeouts been fixed? Are we seeing CPU call timeouts?

    The CPU has called timeouts since the beginning for me. I keep seeing this being posted and I’m always so confused. The CPU has never not called timeouts during my time playing.

    I play offline only, things I've noticed:
    1.Shots % seemed to be turned down a little
    2.Driving the lane seems a little more challenging: can't always force that drive the lane animation 100% of the time like pre patch
    3.Pick n rolls are better
    4.able to play better defense
    5.Contested shots force more misses for both human and cup. All star level with slight slider adjustments
    6.Allys are completed and player actually catch the ball instead of the ball just flying out of bounds or off their hands
    7.A few player updates
    8. Colors seems darker and richer. Think NBA live
    9.Player models and shoes look more detailed. I have a 55" Sony bravia 3d 1080p and graphics looked upscaled. That cartoon effect looks to be toned down.
    10.Some centers do seem a little faster, witch is a good thing. Guys like Kevin Love actually run and not look like he's running a 10 second 40
    11.Your shot will get blocked just running in the paint and not respecting the defense. Learn to shot floaters or pass the ball out.
    That's all for now. Some stuff might just be in my head, but this is just some things that I've seem to notice

    In the beginning, the cpu never called timeouts for me. I went a least 4 straight games and none were called. I've noticed that if your winning by a decent margin, the cpu will call one or two. I haven't noticed after the last path, but Imma pay attention to see the next game i play

    That's exactly what I've been seeing. I threw at least 5 alley oops last night with Jason Kidd. As most know I've been playing with him since release. Kenyon Martin is more of these now. He even caught a few that were short. And just didn't fly out of bounds.

    I honestly don't know what game your'e playing. Although I only play MY GM And exhibition modes. In 10 games, I'd say the computer might averaged 1 or 2 time outs an entire game. I might get lucky to see them call 1 at the end of the 4th quarter and that's only if I"m winning and they never take a player out in foul trouble. IF i"m losing the whole game, they never call time out. This has been a very serious issue this year since launch and I've never remember time outs ever being an issue. Back on the old 2k, they would call at last 2 time outs in a quarter regardless of what was going on in a quarter. I'm interested if it was addressed.

    The CPU frequently calls timeouts during the game when I play. I only see a select few people on here saying it’s a problem, and I’ve never seen it on Twitter or Reddit.

    Thank you 2k god for finally answering the most requested thread that i thought will be forgotten again this year. you have no idea how much of a big deal this is to a lot of pure hardcore realistic offline gamers. i got goose bump just typing this. i know that there are still some players that need to be updated but this time 2k deserve the praise. and i know that you will keep on updating them as the day pass by.

    I think one of the problems for 2k with timeouts. Is the new format of timeouts. It's new for the league. So how can they figure out themselves? Lol even I have trouble calling timeouts in the beginning. I can't tell you how pissed I've gotten when the CPU calls my second to last timeout right after the clocks turns 2:59 lol.
    I can't imagine trying re code how the CPU calls timeouts. Problem had to throw the old format out.

    I play 12 min quarters also on all star. The only time the cpu calls a timeout is when im up by 12 or more. Then they will start using timeouts in the 3rd quarter. Never for substitution,fatigue, or any kind of adjustment.
    Timeouts are called if you use Advanced Rotations (for all teams including CPU controlled teams). With the 2k Roster where there are no advanced rotations set the CPU won‘t call any TOs for me mostly.
    I just played a ML game Celtics vs. Pacers and the CPU controlled Pacers called 1 Timeout in the 3rd quarter in a blowout win by my Celtics. The next game the opponent took no TO in a close game.
    Also I hoped what they would patch in #7 was the Jump Ball issue. My guy still jumps when the opponents player already tipped the ball. It‘s an instant turnover when there is a jump ball while you are playing offense. Smh.

    I play 12 min quarters also on all star. The only time the cpu calls a timeout is when im up by 12 or more. Then they will start using timeouts in the 3rd quarter. Never for substitution,fatigue, or any kind of adjustment.

    Post patch? That's disappointing to hear.

    Tap the right stick when ball hits apex. For some reason the opening tip and other jump balls have diff mechanics. It took me a month to figure this out.

    So your still having the time out issue post patch?
    Anyone else having the issue post patch?
    Play Now, NBA Today, All-Star, 12 min, No Slider Adj.
    Maybe it was the teams I played against (Bucks, Kings) but the cpu is forcing a lot of dribble drives, not running a lot of plays. Not saying they're spamming the paint but something feels different for me. I'm cutting off the ball handler and they just keep forcing the drive. You can force more bad shots and get more steals but players like D'Aaron Fox are relentless trying to get to the bucket and then quick jumping offensive rebounds after misses.
    No cpu timeouts unless you're up by a lot of points.
    Oops are much better.
    My cpu teammates seem to have regressed back to leaving shooters wide open.
    Because of all of the dribble penetration, cpu teammates are helping/over helping even though you're playing decent on ball defense, leaving shooters open. Or allowing for a big to go to the front of the rim for a putback.
    Saw a few more loose ball animations, knock outs, errant passes.
    Why is Koufus facing up and jab stepping trying to beat Embiid off the dribble?

    Haven‘t played another game to try what alabamarob suggested but yes it was post patch.
    Why is it still hard to move when setting up offensive plays....I'm always stuck in that animation and it is very annoying. ..offense and defense it doesn't matter once you get pass half court why?

    The camera issue when u call a time out during a free throw still hasn't fixed. seems like they just don't have a will to fix.
    Really ? I thought they addressed this in a past patch???

    I noticed they fix the camera could be a 1 time glitch for you. But it is crazy that 7 patches within 90 days of release is this the norm going forward now?

    I’m playing the same game we are.
    Offline, superstar, 12 min quarters.
    The CPU frequently calls timeouts during the game when I play. I only see a select few people on here saying it’s a problem, and I’ve never seen it on Twitter or Reddit.
    I don’t know what’s going on in other people’s games, but I see timeouts at a normal clip from the CPU
    Sent from my iPhone using Operation Sports

    Its not a select few a lot of people have posted about this it is a big time issue I am not sure how you are not seeing it. I haven't played with this patch yet but when I last played like 2 days ago I played a game where CPU called zero time outs and like 90-95% of the time CPU will call 1-2 time outs in a whole game. CPU calls them almost like they don't have them and I play nothing but 12 minute quarters. The game can be close and CPU will not call them. I can be up by a lot or them up by a lot CPU wont call them. I can go on like a 14-0 run CPU will not call them.
    Patch notes:
    NBA 2K18 Patch 7 is now live across a few platforms. Ahead of an official post by 2K, Forbes has copied the changelog. Here’s a brief glimpse of what to expect from the latest update.
    Updated custom t-shirt kiosk coming
    Portland and San Antonio’s courts have been updated to properly match their real-world counterparts.
    Lonzo Ball and other player hairstyles have been updated to match his new look.
    Fixed a bug where the number of timeouts left indication on the scoreboard was resetting between quarters.
    The correct amount of VC should now be displayed at the end of Ante-Up games.
    Fixed a hang that could occur when finishing a MyTEAM game with Spanish commentary enabled
    MyPLAYER theme song will now play during the starting lineups when one is set.
    Fixed an issue where players 96 overall or higher would hang when the opposing team quits out of an active Pro-Am Team Arena game.
    When you lose a walk-on game, you will now be returned to the front of the walk-on building rather than at the starting spawn point in the Neighborhood.
    Defensive settings panel for OTFC will now function for AI players in Pro-Am games.
    Fixed an issue in MyGM/MyLEAGUE where a trade that sent Two-Way players to a team whose roster is full can result in one or more of those players disappearing from the league.

    Well, I’m not experiencing that. We can go back and forth all day long, but some people are seeing the issue, some aren’t. I honestly don’t have the answers as to why.

    That's been in the game for years. I never use the buttons on a jump ball. I works great after a tie up. Just don't press toward the guy your jumping against. Press up, down, or back.

    Anyone having problems with frame rate stuttering especially during fastbreaks?

    So far not for me. I just hate that animation were your player fumbles with the ball and messes up the fastbreak.
    Cpu will only call timeouts to stop run. Never to sub or get rest. I have never seen the cpu consistently call timeouts. Not 1 game. I have played about 60 cpu games.

    Going up by 10 points is a surefire way to get the CPU to call a timeout. That is the only consistency I've seen from it. If it's a close game - CPU will simply NOT call a timeout.

    Injuries? No one wants to see in-game injuries? hmph.

    Did they fix the injuries yet? I turned my injury sliders down, because to many of my players were getting hurt. In my first 3 games, LeBron, Wade, Jr, Crowder, and Rose got hurt. I heard they found the bug, but not sure if it was fixed

    No.... You could control tip offs only with the right stick (where every you tapped the right stick towards is where the ball went). Now you use both. One for the direction and the other for timing the jump.

    Plz God help 2K fixing the issue. I just want to call a time out AND shoot a free throw.

    Okay, someone can chime in, but this was addressed on a few patches back. I honestly did not have it happen again after that patch unless I"m losing it. Unless it's "mode related" I played online a few days ago and I remember calling a time out after a free throw and this did not happen. I just remember it happening at launch.

    That's the biggest problem. I usually call timeouts during these times. And I forget and then end up with the camera looking into some weird place.

    Did that. Playing the Blazers i want to change focus area for Lillard to give it up but it never sticks. Soon as i change the menu and go back it always reset to stay home.

    oh, the focus area thing... it doesn't stick on my end either.
    it seems to be working tho. maybe it just has to be set every time out. IDK honestly :o

    In-game injuries were abolished altogether as a fix. I played through half a season of MyLeague (12 minute quarters) before I quit. It became frustrating to see every team in the league suffering injuries besides my own.
    I feel like this is the same case year in and year out. Look MLB The Show is actually doing a beta test now. Maybe 2K should follow suit.
    Someone may have already noted this but how is the trivia still not fixed? Not a big deal but still was an easy way to earn some VC...

    Pause your game, then go to game plan, then defensive settings. Press rt or Lt (xbox) until you find the person that you're making adjustments for. I also have ace off. Remember, there are multiple ways to make adjustments, pause menu, on the fly menu, timeout menu. Your adjustments can override another. Everything has to go hand in hand. For example: you tell one player to stay on his man, then you select help defense in another menu. One command might cancel the other

    I recently had an in game MyLeague injury to Porzingis, kept him out a while.
    I play 12 minute quarters.
    It's rare, but it's still in there, with user injury slider at 50.

    I might be wrong too. And I'll take it. But Alley definitely had to be changed. These were all games from last night after the patch.
