    Pretty solid patch for the game having released not even two weeks ago. Especially for MyLeague guys.

    No mention of increasing VC prices? Cool. Guess I'll be "grinding" out this VC in MyLeague in the meantime.

    Increasing VC prices? Hold up, Homie.
    Nothing here on MyGM/MyLeague draft class talent balancing, player tendency fixes, the left ankle injury bug, or player salaries and team salary cap balancing over time.
    That doesn't mean there's been nothing done. It's just those are the areas off the top of my head that guys here have said need work.
    Gonna need some testing after the patch drops.

    Blah. No mention of Pro-AM arenas being difficult to get everybody into, and having to send squad invites twice every time.

    This. Hopefully it's just one of those fixes that doesn't need to be mentioned, along w accesories for Pro Am. Why on earth would that option be removed 2K?
    Solid, solid, patch. Just the beginning, but if they keep accomplishing as much in each patch going forward, we're looking at a pretty complete game come New Years, maybe every as early as late November-mid December.
    What about when you trying to upgrade your facilities in mygm but they won’t let you keep your original jerseys????

    I'm going to stop you before you get your hopes up, then they get crushed later. Looking at the notes, it looks the framerate issue was their top priority. They're betting on that the new gameplay will carry most people until they release the "mega" patch.
    For example, PNO players only have to worry about VC earning now.

    I would rather they push the game back to October next year. They could use the extra month to fix some of these ridiculous bugs.

    All you're doing with this suggestion is moving the development timeframe. How much time they have to work on the next game doesn't change unless they start forcing developers to work overtime.

    But how do we know that they aren’t being rushed to finish this game early? The game used to come out in October anyway. I’m just saying rushing usually only causes more bugs.

    The bugs are noticed by the Community, so moving release date back just means longer time before issues are fixed. Your have a lot more eyes combing thru the game with Community Members.

    The September release probably affected NBA 2K17, because 2K16 was release in October. However, it would have been a normal development cycle from 2K17 to 2K18. It would be like your boss suddenly telling you that you're going to work 8AM - 5PM instead of 7AM - 4PM to get more productivity out of you.

    That's a ton of work for the community to expect from them year after year when these things can be addressed on the design side.
    That is great those were a lot of my complaints. I hated that on MyTeam my settings would also go back to default. Which made it worse when I didn't notice auto timeouts was on which would suck for the framerate bug.
    I also just notice last night when doing some drills that the balls wouldn't be picked up when they jumped out of the ball machine which would end the badge drill and you would get no progress.
    And of course thank god this framrate bug is supposedly fixed.

    Still and incomplete game. The Gameplay suffers big time because they refuse to fix the biggest thing that hampers the end users gameplay. Contrary to this false narrative about not touching gameplay, they need to touch it with all hands on deck.

    What issue was bigger than the framerate?

    Game play is Great... All 2k needs to do is make some roster updates, especially to their player tendencies and badges. I have yet to talk to any roster maker or editor who doesn't agree with the proper edits the game is by Far the best ever in the Series.
    They need to fix the driving to the basket. Unless you're using like Kawhi Leonard to guard a guy, its literally 9/10 times you'll get blown by. Its only manageable now in MyTeam (where I mostly play) because people don't have access to highly rated shooting bigs. Once those start, the 5-Out with the ballhandler easily running through the defender to the rim uncontested will be ridiculous.
    I personally would like it if you needed to be running at near or at top speed to blow by people. As it is now, every fast player automatically blows by you on their first step even when you're standing in the direction they're running

    Wish the forum had a dislike button so I could press it 100 times for this post.
    Hoping a dev or someone in the know can answer this.
    I have a MyGM save that I'm about 12 games into. The two fixes that say "new save" required, I get that this initial class of prospects may be screwed up, but will it be fixed in Year 2 and beyond in my current save? It would seem that it would be the case since prospects aren't generated until the new season is started. I can live with one year of potential issues if it's fixed in future years.
    Or is it forever and ever messed up in my current save?

    No art patches. Not shocked. Art is #297 on list of importance for 2K.

    Media day just happened today if you really expected art to be updated before then shame on you
    There are framerate issues that need to be fixed offline. Playing on broadcast low, when shooting and the ball hits off the rim, there is a distracting framerate jitter or something going on. It's usually in this view, and happens more on this part part of the floor while shooting 3'd from the area where Parker is.

    I wish they'd let us edit height/zoom with the regular broadcast camera, since they took away the broadcast generic that many used.

    Huh?
    So guys' wingspan, legs, torsos being way off is excused by today being media day? Did these guys grow longer arms over the summer?
    And a lot of these guys (Brogdon, Randle) have had different hair styles for a few years now, yet they stay the same in the game.
    And what does media day have to do with court lighting being too dark in most arenas? Or lack of floor reflection?
    Does the historic domination glitches fixed? Are people getting duplicate jerseys now?
    Tried tweet Ronnie/Chris/Mike Wang, no response at all.
    I have tweeted 2K support a lot of time, they just keep ignoring me. It has been a week. I'm frustrated.
    It's like we are not customer, we are beta-tester.
    Sorry for posting complaints here. It's just suck.

    Offline is okay, when you play online and people are using Westbrook to just charge and blow by all defenders and help defenders (save a Kawhi like I mentioned) MyTeam online is tedious and boring. The meta for the mode is to just use preorder Kyrie or Westbrook and charge into the paint (and because they're running its an automatic blowby even if you position your defender to block the optimal drive path).
    Like I said, once higher rated cards come in, the 5-Out offence is going to be seen far and wide. For right now its somewhat manageable because sapphire Westbrook can't shoot, but once a moments card comes through its game over for the balance online

    I'd rather have them do it in patches so that it can carry over into MyLeague's rather than being exclusive to that roster update.
    This game is broken. All people do online is left right, left right to exploit the games lag to get open and then shoot. That makes the online portion of the game unplayable.
    Its terrible that 2k didnt prepare for such an ambitious game like this. Lag makes online play unrealistic and unenjoyable. Not to mention the "ride the hip" animation is an expliot. I see what 2k was trying to do but it was a poor attempt

    Yes, the light of the courts (for me) must be a priority. This is the third year in a row that we have this “problem”, for that reason I’m not confident on a fix.

    Draft Class balancing is a must.
    It sucks to adjust the Rookies, because you see their Attributes - it makes Scouting irrelevant.
    Still like the other fixes though.
    And the best thing on this Patch: No Gameplay changes :woot:

    To be fair, 2K16 had really bad court lighting. But they improved it for 2K17. But for whatever reason, they took a big step back again.

    Oh I agree.... but this has been a problem for years, they will not fix this and will rely on the fact that we can download custom classes.

    Not sure if it was mentioned but you can now see your attributes and what it becomes before upgrading your MyCareer player.

    I'm glad they added this in but you still CAN'T see which category upgrades your On-Ball Defense, Pick and Roll Defense etc. and by how much. Some categories are still hidden.

    I'm guessing their ratings are just a calculation based off your steals/blocks/lateral quickness levels?

    So... guessing CAPs will be fixed in the next patch?

    Really hoping so because I just can't get into MyLeague with the way that the system is currently set up. The lack of face customization is down right embarrassing for a sports game in 2017. We're basically choosing players instead of creating them.

    What do you guys think the chances of 2K addressing the VC situation are in future updates? I normally would think 0% but they already changed haircut prices.
    If they gave everyone 50k VC added to their account I think that would go a long way, would get some trust back from consumers and wouldn't really break their bank too much.

    For some reason this (and 2k17 last year) is the only game that does not download its patches by itself. Anyone else have this problem or know how to solve it? It is infuriating when I sit down to play 2K and it's like "oh hold up, you need to download this 4 gig patch first". Wouldn't be so bad if 2K's patches were normal sized but they are always several gigs large.

    Looks like it's gone during gameplay, but still is visible during the actual timeout scenes.

    Frame rate is actually worse when playing offline on the 2K Low camera on PS4 Pro smh. It's pretty much unplayable now. What's going on 2K!

    It was already bad on Broadcast Low (offline as well), especially when the ball is coming off the rim on misses...shooting from the right corner side of the 3 pt arch especially.
    It's like a hiccup in frame rate, or the camera moves real quick. But it's so annoying!

    This issue would be fixed if they allowed us to play the game at 1080p/1440p or checker boarded 4k.
    Native 4k is too much for the ps4 pro.

    It really shouldn't be, 2K17 was native 4K and ran perfectly smooth.

    I just checked this and it seems it's been fixed! I have to play some more tomorrow, but as of now, thank you 2K!!!!!
    Now let's work on the court lighting so all courts are as bright as the Lakers and Warriors (and add reflections). :y220b:

    I have a Pro, and plan on buying my first 4K TV soon. Are you saying it doesn't run smoothly??
    I really wish they would've fixed the left ankle/foot injury bug. It's insane how many injuries I was seeing in my games before I turned them off. I feel like MyLeague the only game mode I can play right now since I can turn the injuries off.
    I can't believe people aren't making more noise about this issue. Is it because it only becomes so apparent in 12 minute quarter games?

    It runs smoothly for a bit till you get pop-in notifications stats. Game has some frame-pacing issues when it's not hitting its 60fps.
    This is the only game that is super loud playing native 4k.

    I can confirm the MyLeague Sweet Cookie VC glitch does not work anymore.
    I did the glitch and gained 0 VC out of it.


    Tried all variants, but didn't work for me either. We knew it would eventually happen, but still sad. At least I could improve my player to a 79 before it was completely patched. Oh well, I'll have to be content with gameplay being consistently good which has been the case so far, crossing fingers...

    Thats a decent patch so far. Haven't tried playing at the playground and see if they really fixed the frame drops.
    Now with the added attributes screen, you can now save a ton of VC on "upgrading" attributes that stay the exact same
    Just saw the patch notes and looks like the patch didn't really do much. Didn't improve CPU and time outs or CPU substitution. Looks like it didn't fix the injury bug that causes guys to get injured like they are playing NFL instead of basketball.
    Can anyone with this game on Xbox one tell me how many gbs 2K18 takes up after patch. I'm not sure if I downloaded the patch and I have 53.2 GB listed

    Is it fixed or still unplayable (unless you own a PS4 Pro)

    Not fixed. Been stated a few times

    So if they didnt fix it even with the patch we are screwed.
    Change park limit from 80 to 40-50 2k !!!
    We rather would wait for a game 5 min that play with this fps drops....
    Park is still awful as it was before this patch.
    Only thing that has changed is that they removed another way to make VC from MyLeague quick, but in return didnt bother to fix issues where you are not getting any VC or randomly lose 200-300 VC after a game.
    Waste of download bandwidth.

    What system are you on? PS4, here. I've noticed the missing couple of hundred and thought it was tax. Then I realized they don't tax you in here. Noticed only three times because I was low on it beforehand. I wrote them a ticket. I'm not even mad because I'm too busy having a ton of fun with the game...
    tried Playground, imo it’s better than before but there’s still a noticeable frame rate but it’s not as bad as before the patch

    I'm generally in your boat when it comes to most games having a few bugs here and there, but they've basically made it impossible to play MyLeague. I don't think I've ever seen so many bugs within one game mode before.

    Interesting. Need to see myself when coming back from work.
    If it's still as bad as before I will consider buying a PS4 Pro.
    I hate bringing it up, but I'm really getting tired of my player jumping up in the air after making a basket, and if it's not the player I'm controlling, it's someone else. This has been going on since 2k15. Do the devs really not notice these little things?

    Is there anywhere to specifically talk about pro-am? There's a lot of glitchy stuff that some players seem to be using but I can't quite pick it all out from a few games. edit: nm found the thread
    Did they at least make it so people can't equip elite dribble moves and contact dunks despite not having the stats for it this patch? Because that was some hot bull**** last night.

    I have the xbox 1 version. I just got the "update required" box pop up on my screen while scrolling through the menus. Is this the patch? How do I know if this is the latest patch or not?
    Also, I remember this same update required box pop up alot last year while i was playing a game and it wouldn't go away until I went to the main menu (which was so annoying btw), but are all these "update required" notices patches? I was always unclear about that.

    Those are just the roster updates. This one for example made some changes like Dwyane Wade from the Bulls to the FA pool.

    Check this forum, as people will say when the patch drops for the xbox. Roster/hotfix updates are the spinning ball when you're game is loading up.

    I play a pro am walk on game and get lets say 1100 VC after one game. I exit walk on into the neighborhood and my balance says i made 920 VC from that one game.
    What does everyone think, will 2K patch the rate of which it takes to grind your MyPlayer? I really want to get into MyCareer but not if i have to play 200-300 games to get to 85 overall. 50, maybe. 200-300 is way too slow moving.
    And i refuse to pay for fictional money to upgrade a fictional player.

    More time than it ever should be put on a gamer. If you played 2k back in the day before VC upgrading could be done easily within a day or two. 6-10 hours max. You'll have to go way over that to even get near what you could compared to the old games. IMO

    I doubt it, but they are getting some serious backlash from it. Only time will tell. Best case scenario is that they reevaluate the business model for NBA 2K19.

    This is the way it should be. Maybe a little bit harder, but it IS a game at the end of the day.
    It's funny when people say "it's realistic that you should grind, rookies in real life only score about 5 pts a game". I feel like saying "don't you buy games for fun?!". What happened to us man. Imagine getting sliders for Sonic the Hedgehog to slow him down to a realistic speed because he's too fast
    At least 75% of the game should just be you having fun and enjoying free fun play. 25% grinding seems enough to enjoy the game still. This game (if you have no VC) is like 95% grinding in MyCareer mode

    They need to find a medium. It's all about balance. No I don't wanna be a 99 after 50 games but being a gamer I simply will not exclusively play this title to play the 200 plus games required to even reach the mid 80s. There's has to be a balance between realism and fun factor. I mean how realistic can the mode be when a guy named DJ gets an NBA tryout based off 3 pickups games to 21.

    This patch definitely killed long passes in Pro Am. Back to how passing was in 2K17 which is a shame.

    Just curious if these are the type of long passes that you're referring to? The following isn't from Pro-Am, but just regular NBA offline games. I was simply testing to see if long outlet passes were possible this year. And the same transition outlet passes continue to thrive because the transition defense still remains a massive legacy 2k concern. The transition defense is essentially powerless against the transition offense. Yes, it doesn't work all the time, but the amount of successful long passes is still far too high based on how 2k codes the transition defense and transition offense.

    I was loving the fact that people were doing a bunch of turnovers trying those long hail marry masses or constantly trying to thread the needle. In previous 2k's my teammates took advantage and I hated it, even though we lost a couple games in Pro-Am because of turnovers I liked the fact that stupid plays weren't being rewarded.
    they should of patched to skip the cutscenes that are so **** and way to long.90% of mycareer is cutscenes.go talk to shaq and kenny after every game is getting very old at this point and the ******* agent cutscenes where you have to pick up you vc.they pathed this last year and still this year they are to incompetent to implement it again

    Game play is Great... All 2k needs to do is make some roster updates, especially to their player tendencies and badges. I have yet to talk to any roster maker or editor who doesn't agree with the proper edits the game is by Far the best ever in the Series.

    Agreed, from a gameplay standpoint, its never been this good. Im frustrated at not seeing shooting fouls on 3pt attempts, or really any shooting fouls on the perimeter, but outside of that, gameplay is amazing.

    I play a lot of PNO and Pro-Am and just don’t see it I have only seen it one time with a center that had Gold break starter I agree even with badges it shouldn’t be that easy but I’m not seeing it and to say the “patch” effected something gameplay wise when they haven’t made a change to anything gameplay in the notes I doubt the touched anything
