    3.62 GB for 9 very small things? There’s got to be something they’re not telling us...

    Their updates stack I believe. The actual update itself probably isn't 3.62GB.
    I like this game a lot and generally ignore the people who just come on here to trash it for gameplay or realism...
    But it is F-ING STUPID when confetti rains from the rafters and players jump into each other's arms after winning game one of round one of the playoffs.
    Seems like something they had to know was in the game already and I GUESS it would be a simple fix... alas

    I also find it very strange when it's 97-95 in a the 4th quarter of a playoff game in Los Angeles, but the crowd cares more about free tacos than their team winning this big game

    Not listed, but hope team Pro-Am fixed for pc version. Its been over a month since it got broken here.
    How is that worth 3.62 GB?

    Different file compression for each system. In order to do any change some section of compressed files has to be pulled out and changed no matter how small change is. For PC version patches usually about 5 times smaller than on consoles.

    Well the FT issue was worth it in itself...you literally had to shoot your second free throw blind after a timeout and the online d-bags caught on and started using this to their advantage.
    Sent from my SM-G955U using Operation Sports mobile app

    is this when you call a time out after a first free throw or was it just happening every time?
    Overall, very disappointing patch. But better than nothing. No mention of CPU never calling time outs during a game? That's A SEVERE ISSUE especially in MY GM and my career. C- :brickwall

    It happened everytime a TO was called after the first FT....the camera would fixate on the crowd the entire time...
    Definitely a huge issue so I'm more than happy they addressed it.
    I really do appreciate Jordan's tongue to be life like but they seem to forget to update the "current" NBA players appearance which is more important than the classic one. is this part of the game really that hard to address?
    I wish they would fix your last 10 games played history for PNO. Mine hasn’t updated since the first week of the games release.
    It’s a good feature because when someone quits you can atleast go back to that page and see your team stats for that game.

    their priorities are not for the legends this year. They're plenty of them, but certainly getting their likenesses right are not important. I look at some guys like Vlade Divac and I think I"m playing an old ps2 game. Some are much better, but I don't know how they determine why some players don't get as much love as the next guy...
    I noticed I wasn't getting calls for endorsement checks in mycareer over this weekend. Here's the question, are we going to get 'back' VC for all the games we played? Because that can add up.

    Yeah i actually thinkin who approved on whose to update and not. i have nothing against classics its just that im watching NBA right now and i cannot see the similarities on some of the players which is a bummer. at this time i just want a feedback directly from the devs with a yes or no answer so i can finally stop waiting for a miracle.
    I'm finally starting to come around on the game, but they really need to start updating some player likenesses.  I really couldn't care less about Caron Butler or Stacey King being added to the game.
    At least I don't have to look at that 3 year old D Rose scan anymore.

    How is that worth 3.62 GB?

    Yeah that’s a less than 1gb update based on the notes. Maybe Jordan’s tongue was 3gb alone.

    Someone had a really good explanation regarding the sizes of the update. Long story short, the physical size is not an indication of how many changes were made to the game.
    Still can't skip cutscenes...Still haven't addressed the teleportation portal in the neighborhood. Wanna go change your shoes? Sure, but watch this ad about Reese Puffs 1st smh.

    No fix for injuries, totally disappear of the game after patch 1.04, i think...
    For me, it's the thing that MUST be resolve, but they don't care !
    i don't give a **** with MyPlayer mode or Jordan's tongue, i want a game realistic, and the injuries are part of it !
    So CPU still don’t call time outs except for the final 2 minutes. And Playcalling Messages not fixed either!? Bummer. Those are the 2 issues I look forward to getting fixed the most!

    Did they patch online only for this issue? If so, Smh....
    Xbox One (offline) vs. cpu.....this bug still exist.

    The CPU cheesin' 😂

    Any chance that they secretly patched the announcement of "player of the game" taking place with 2 minutes + to go in a tied ball game? Why doesn't this happen at the end of the game like 2k17?

    CPU literally never calls timeouts... like how do you miss something like that when making a sports game
    Ok, I really didn't want to be this guy because I usually hate this person, but this update maybe/possibly/slightly might've tweaked offline gameplay (not speaking on online anything because my Shotcreater Point is only a 71 overall and I can't do much with him anyway).
    Controls and player movement feel fine for now, but I'm playing on HOF sliders (w/ pass speed bumped to 65) in MyLeague and I'm bricking a ton of open layups/shots, and both me and the cpu keep committing stupid passing turnovers like passing out of bounds, passing into nowhere, and stuff like that. Also feels like players that suck at defense seem like they're really good at it even though their ratings say otherwise.
    Anyone else confirm the game feels off? I've been playing for almost 2 hours and the 2 games I've played felt weird. Also after 5 previous updates, this is the only time I've noticed something about gameplay in MyLeague/Offline.
    I'm curious as to whether gameplay is different as hinted at above. I was really enjoying lately so I hope not.

    wow.. "jordans tongue actually looks mike like" how many players play the game to see how real jordan tongue is
    I think doing one's best to make sure the player who's widely considered to be the greatest of all-time doesn't look like a freak when he takes to the air is a worthy cause.
    Unfortunately, it seems like there's still progress that needs to be made. Here's a shot of Jordan's tongue after the patch.

    Even last years fix was better this is just a poor effort
    And we are one more step back to 2k17 defense. First thing I noticed yesterday was that even bad defenders are again able to timetravelbump into me even though ive clearly beaten them, especially on p&r.
    Congrats 2k...

    are the injuries in my league mode finally fixed? are they appearing again?

    With the sliders i use, injuries is the only default of the game for me too !
    I was hoping the assist/blocked shot/possibly other stats issue in MyCareer would be fixed. It mostly happens with assists on a regular bases but I posted it in the bugs forum over a month ago. Had me questioning if I know what an assist is. Ha...but maybe I don't.
    The issue is that I get no credit for an assist usually if I pass a teammate the ball then set a pick for him then he scores or sometimes if I pass to him and he doesn't directly score even if the ball hasn't been poked away or blocked and he recovers it then scores, which I understand won't be an assist.
    I'll get the "Screen Assist" toward my teammate grade, instead. Shouldn't I get both?
    2K employees, please respond to this.

    So many games are being patched. I cant decide if its a good thing or not.
    Game patches are pretty much the norm for any video game these days....

    All I want to do is be able to skip cutscenes

    I agree.
    I haven't really been playing much because I hate hitting A/B 50 times a game to skip halftime, photo sessions, and TOs. Been playing NHL instead where they let you skip things right away.

    I thought they said they weren't going to mess with gameplay this year...
    The way cpu olays this fast paced offence amd cheesy plays literally stealing buckets even whenn greatly defended is brutal.
    No matter what team i play they all play the same and depending on what period of the game this cpu boost mode kicks in and they rob you in a way thats sooo cheap you want to delete the game .
    I remember when the game came out i jumped into a league and they played differently i still have the screenshots for team comparison .i am disguster how the cpu plays .thats bottomline. Dissapointed again this year in terms of gameplay defense (effectiveness/response) amd the way cpu cheats on offense.thumbs down
    Game play wise from what I played last night after downloading felt different, defense mostly was noticeably different as blocking was improved but like post said earlier, a lot more poorer defenders can keep up with you on drives now. For the love of God, we on 6 patches and on private team ups you still cannot skip a timeout or even make adjustments during one, just have to sit there and wait the whole minute.
    Something seems off. I'm missing a lot of shots. I don't mind missing shots but right it's different than before the last patch. I'm missing everything inside. The hook shot seems completely worthless. I've only played a bit but right now it just seems off. I'm hoping I'm wrong.
    This is offline scrimmage.

    When I jump out to a lead the cpu calls timeouts vs me. And what is the issue with messages your upset about?

    Playcall messages only show up if you press up on the dpad to have that stat overlay box in the top corner, I hate having that box on my screen. Gameplay feels the same for me which is a good thing.

    I would love to just hear one tweet in response why legends faces have looked so bad after the jump to next gen. It shouldn't be going backwards in the graphics department. The original Face of Jordan in 2k11 is still the most accurate likeness of his airness . And here we are with 2k18 still wondering why we are begging 2k to make it look like that again. Arrgh

    Because now you have scan faces to compare to non-scanned faces so there is a obvious difference, but compared to previous 2k games this is the best Legends have looked.
    I played about a half hour on scrimmage/All Star and I'm not seeing any negative changes in gameplay.  CPU is still swinging the ball around at ludicrous speed and killing me with jumpers, but I'm still able to get by guys with my dribble frequently enough.  Doesn't in any way feel like the suction D from previous years.

    I have been noticing a "little" more bumping by the defense but none of that suction crap from 2k17...and that "little" bumping has mitigated some of the clipping on drives to the basket so for me gameplay is almost PERFECT, Still haven't started a myleague because im enjoying NBA Today games so much...
    EDIT: That small change to defebse has made driving to the basket a little tougher to which is exactly what the game was missing, also seeing alot more blocking/charging fouls when bullying my way to the basket like Lebron! Lol

    The camera will no longer focus on the crowd when play resumes when called right before a free throw in Pro-Am and Play Now Online games.
    the camera is still broken in Play Now offline. WTH is this lol.

    wow, offline users are abandoned or maybe it is waaaaay too difficult for them to fix all together.
    it's been a known glitch for almost 3 months and they still can't fix it. smh.
    The CPU timeout problem is kinda odd to me. In PNO, I use auto-timeouts, and I feel that they're being called at the appropriate times for me. On occasion, I might call one myself if I feel a player is sitting too long, and the game is getting tight in the 4th quarter. However, you would think the AI would apply the same timeout logic in a human vs CPU game.
    sudanmalkovich
    cpu never calls, I'm calling it.

    Timeouts definitely work when using advanced rotations, I choose to have timeouts and deal with the rotations not considering foul trouble and blowouts.

    just one question after the update 1.06
    did the injuries come back, or wait for another update?
    without the injuries, the simulation is broken for me, something is missing ...
    Rockie_Fresh88
    It’s like that drive animation has gotten stronger in this patch. Like what gives. Can that be toned down.

    Im glad you brought this up. I noticed this too. I thought I somehow gotten worst at on ball defense. :lol: The right stick trick doesn't seem to work anymore.
    In PNO, any player can just go right through any player at any time they want regardless of ratings or defensive positioning.
    Whenever I play online, I don't bother playing straight up anymore. I do alot of aggressive trapping since players have difficulty passing and catching the ball.

    I wish 2K finds a balance for injuries. I get it; Injuries disappeared from games we play for real. 2K needs to find a middle ground where players get hurt within a game, but not an ankle injury for every player in every game.

    It gets abused in pro am . I used to stop it all the time with the RS. Now nothing seems to stop it.
    Bucks(CPU) vs. 76ers(user)...Still enjoying the gameplay offline as much, if not more than I did on release day. Jumped out to a 20-8 lead and they slowly chipped away at it until they got back in it. Never felt cheated or scripted, just good gameplay.

    Man the zig zagging is absolutely insane.
    Players on offense literally move like it's an ice skating simulator. Impossible to play on-ball D. They completely destroyed on-ball D this year. The help defense is nowhere near good enough for them to have nerfed the on-ball defense into this.
    2K is frigging hilarious...
    You can wake up one day and the game you thought you knew how to play all of a sudden is gone and replaced with a brand new game ...smfh

    It's not even just zig zagging anymore. For most people you don't even have to do any of that this year with how easy they made the blow by animations past defenders. Just do a moving behind the back and watch the ball magically go through the defenders body and hold turbo and easily slide right by them for an easy 2pts or a foul in the paint.
    The on-ball defense and help defense really is trash this year.

    I agree totally. Both the offensive and defensive player movements are like ice skating now. The amount of court that can be covered now at certain angles is ridiculous. I've never had an issues with CPU FG% on this game until after this patch either. Now it seems like teams are shooting at least 65% every game on me because of their ability to get to the hoop like never before. This patch really zapped the fun out of the game for me on a game that I had really grown to like.
