  1. This looks much smoother than the NBA player movement from videos & the demo. Is it the new mo-cap for the WNBA that makes the difference?
    The foot planting is more obvious in this video. The ball movement by the AI also looks good.
    I wonder if we will get access to WNBA animations in Edit Player for NBA players.
    This looks a lot smoother than the NBA portion TBH. I bet it's because the athletic ratings are lower across the board for the women. So with slower acceleration and overall speed combined, with lower vertical aswell... Players just seem a lot smother.

    We need 2K to bring NCAA basketball back! 
    I can only imagine how amazing that would be after looking at this video and the WNBA Teams now in the game.
    Im very impressed with the gameplay.
    in some aspects, it actually looks better than the NBA gameplay.
    the commentary/play by play is also impressive.
    I for one am glad this is added and look forward to improvements to the womens game in the future.
    This is a very cool addition

    To me this looks better than what I've seen from videos of the NBA teams.

    It's the same vibe I got with the initial women's gameplay in FIFA years back. The game is slightly more slowed down, a little more in control, and it gives off the vibes (it may just be a placebo in some way) of being more "sim" and looking like actual basketball.

    It's a good comparison. Fun to play, but evidentally almost no one plays with those teams compared to the men, because they have done very little with them since 2015.

    Does anyone know if there will be a franchise mode like MyGM or MyLeague? I have seen conflicting reports.

    There will be a season mode for the women.
    Just watched the videos. I actually might play this, since there's an Indiana team. Gameplay just looks better for some reason.
    I don't know. I think I'll actually like playing below the rim.

    Thats the WNBA in a nutshell. Slower, more team concept 90s type basketball, where they actually utilize post players, and iso so much more less, without all the antics at least.

    I hope you can create players for the League or at least edit the ones in game.

    I have a feeling someone will make a roster based on WNBA athleticism because the gameplay looks smoother.
    And TBH, that might be a damn good roster too.

    Hey Brittney Griner actually looks like Brittney Griner now. That awful CAP we saw in the background of a screenshot must have been temporary. Didn’t really notice if Diana looks any better, but her initial CAP was pretty bad looking too.

    Taurasi got scanned as well

    I was thinking the same thing, or a college hoops roster men and/or women rosters.
    the gameplay looks impressive and I like the commentary. hopefully it doesn't get repetitive

    Me too. I am hoping they have create-a-player or at least edit/copy a player. I want to create my fiance in the game. :-)
    Can't wait to play this mode.
    Been seeing a ton of negative comments for shock value from sources outside of OS ('Gram, FB, etc).
    This inclusion of the WNBA is promising and I'll be playing it often for the love of the sport.
    This is pretty cool. Being from Vegas, it's nice having a basketball team from your town being in a basketball game. As the previous replies, the gameplay looks better. I like the flow :cool:
    Also, I'm glad this portion got the proper TLC Live wasn't able to give it. The commentary crew actually addressed the players on the court and gave some info on the league as opposed to Live which only, mainly, talked about the on-court stuff.
    Trying HARD to see IT, but I am not seeing this, "WNBA gameplay looks smoother" angle. But we are all entitled to our own perspectives.
    It looks great and the commentary sounds pretty good.
    I have to wonder though, what's up with the three-men booth? Why not have women broadcast the games?
    Anyone notice Candace Parker dropped from 93 to 91? She hasn't been playing up to her par the last few games but I wonder why the drop. Not to mention the mocap trailer she was in.

    Imo It really does look much better as far as offense goes. The ai seems smarter and offense flows better. The NBA side looks more of the same with cheesy drives and badly made shots.

    I don't know if it's the fact that the WNBA gameplay is paced slower, or that the WNBA player models look much better than the NBA player models. This looks better than the NBA portion IMO.

    I agree. There is something about the WNBA gameplay that seems smoother with good flow. I really like it.
    Hopefully they have CAP.

    I think it's because the game-play looks CH2k8 like, even the commentary feels 2k8 like.
    pace and player model size on the court also has something to do with it.
    The transition animations are a lot smoother for the WNBA. It just looks smoother compared to how the NBA version looks. Results of building from ground up?
    NBA version has dribble animations added through the years so you can see some of the transition animations are not as smooth. Not as clean looking. That's what everyone is seeing. The smooth animation transitions....gives me a Live vibe as well with the dribbling.

    My cousin Mercedes Russell did a headscan for this (she plays for the Seattle Storm). I was very frustrated that Live for the most part had generic head scans.
    Edit: that's her dead center - so awesome!
    Yes, this actually does look better than the actual NBA games. Possibly because the women have a smaller frame maybe and space & movement is more evident? Definitely playing this mode nonetheless.

    Haha I could definitely see the resemblance between you two.
