    Where's the "Many, many more fixes included to improve the overall experience of NBA 2K20!" line?

    Likeness update for Dwight and DeAndre. Also fixed the City jerseys socks
    These likeness updates carry over in existing my leagues or no?

    May be late on this as well but any updates to player portraits? Thanks!

    None, sadly. Seems like Chris Boucher, KAT (diferent/newer dreads) also got a likeness update.

    I'm guessing we won't be getting gameplay fixes any more in the notes. We're just have to figure it out. That's truly sad LMAO.

    I ill try to challenge a call and see if the camera is still fixed on the bench and not the court when the ball is being jumped at midcourt if the challenge was successful
    (on broadcast angel)
    so fixes on money making modes.
    No fixes on coach's challenges having a messed up camera angle.
    No fix on the G league Glitch, 2nd round picks not being signed then signing ridiculous contracts later in free agency, and no nerfing of over powered morale effects.
    No fix from the last patch where they overpowered CPU blocking in the paint and made it very difficult to complete shots in the paint with a defender near you.
    Why am I not surprised? At least I can stop worrying about it and keep going with my work arounds and my slider adjustments that jacked up certain things to work around the overpowered CPU paint defense.
    Really wish they could let us pick Custom Roster for Playoffs Mode. Can someone help me pass this to them?
    Ps. They broke Isaiah Thomas’s cyberface...Can’t put a headband on him anymore.

    wtf player portraits and player face photo not updated yet.. SMH.. wtf 2K doing so lately

    wondering why does 2k take too long to update player photo on their face beside portraits ??

    May be late on this too.. am I crazy or am I hearing new songs now in menu?

    EDIT: Just saw other thread about Dynamic Soundtrack. Wish they would put this effort into simple things like likeness and portraits
    DancyHercules3
    Nope, it seems PJ Washington got a hair update as well, he got a buzzcut now.

    Green splash gone? Or Option to make it go away?...Please say yes?
    All these updates and have pretty much seen nothing at all for my league improvements. Nothing but fixes for rec or neighborhood or general online fixes. If it isn't tied to micro transactions then 2k could care less. This game gets released half finished every year with no fixes for my league or vs players and at this point its really getting stale. Not gonna get my money next year if this game stays as is

    Right behind you... ANd I'm a hardcore fan. But this might be my first year without 2k after this cycle.

    Well make sure you stay firm, cuz 2k's coming for our money extra hard next year with that next gen release lol.
    Let's just call the 2k updates the "nothing for me" updates. Seems to only care about fixing things that can be monetized.  
    Please for the love of Santa and all that's holy... update the Created Player options. That's the only reason I play is to create my rosters. I could care less about the park and its other ways to get money from us. 
    I noticed they fixed the jersey and accessories menu. Just yesterday when I always playing with the Knicks in their city Jersey I couldn't change the socks to white, but today I could which is a plus.
    They also added the Nike team as an option. I know a lot of people are upset about player photos not being updated yet.
    I think we will get a player photo and player likeness update either before Christmas or sometime after Christmas before the all-star break.

    Seems they added new tracks to the playlist too

    I'm so glad I have PS plus, those free games are keeping me entertained.
    2K lacking with these updates. The 1st time since Myplayer began I haven't created or played that feature.
    Challenge camera view not fixed and still no green release option. Trash!
    thats it? we still cannot select Uniforms in Myleague online? are you kidding me?
    and the timeout Bug that leads to crashes is still in There? i still have to Change my Controller settings at the Start of every game?
    how can 2K missed Wiggins and Jaylen and Nunn?? this people are F starters.
    all this update about online gaming everytime and very little for player likeness.
    and where is the option to turn that darn green light and icons. cmonnnnnn
    TeamBuilder
    Game has been out for over 2 months, and still no update to player pictures. We also STILL have that stupid green splash effect that we can't turn off.

    I still laugh at that being brought up in a meeting and somebody greenlighting that nonsense. They took the splash effect idea from some youtuber

    I think turning off the shot meter is the only way for the “green splash/splat/flash effect” to go away but im not 100 percent sure. Doesn’t really bother me as much as having to change my freaking controller settings everytime I play lol

    So where are these new headbands 2k said they added?

    2k didn't add any headbands, they just changed the players that were wearing ninja headbands to regular headbands

    No problem is bigger than another... But this is not like 2k to put something like this in the game. It so arcadely. What's the point of clutch moments like this being wasted .

    No disrespect, but Mike Wang never once said that they would be looking into giving players an option to turn off the green flashes in an upcoming patch.
    He hasn't answer not one of my messages on the topics of green splash. I can't play with it on. Even during practice I can't take it. Let's just put fire on the ball then. Even those missed lol

    Lol. Don't get me wrong. I hate it just like the next person who don't care for it, but I'm not going to get myself worked up over the "omission" of the option when he never addressed any comments regarding it aside from the "It keeps people from lying on their greens".
    It still blows my mind to think that someone suggested this nonsense during one of their "think tank" sessions, and the developers actually implemented it. It's like...how in the hell was this even a problem to address? Maybe I need to follow Twitter and Reddit more closely...but damn...was people actually complaining about this?
    To be a fly on the wall at the exact moment this idea was spoken into existence.
    2k hasn’t been able to get the movement or realism down in a decade. Players move on the court hunched over. And the transition to dribbling, running and walking just down right sucks. Watch A real game 2k and you would see smooth weighted transitions. Once again we have sliding players that jump in slow motion and show no intelligence on the court. We have no spacing on the court. 10 years of this nonsense.
    And when you do fix the nonsense with sliders, they just tune it and you start over with more nonsense than before.
    Every year it’s the same thing!
    I bought the game on release night. I've been editing draft classes every day since and I've only played about 3 quarters of gameplay in total. I gave up after seeing percentages and green splashes under players. The % can be worked around, and I can only hope that by the time I'm done editing the green splash will have an option to be removed. If not then I really hope I can learn to overcome it.
    Did I pick a wrong year to take on a massive project? Did I just waste months of my life? Why do I suddenly feel like puking?
    I'm sorry, but to call a game trash due to a visual cue seems over-the-top to me. The visual cue doesn't affect the gameplay. YES, it does affect your reaction or decision making to a particular situation, but it doesn't affect the gameplay. Again, I don't like it either, but I'm not going to stop playing it due to a visual cue that I disagree with. It's not that deep to me, but I don't consider NBA 2K to be the "perfect" basketball game NOR do I ever EXPECT it to be a "perfect" basketball game. They are way too many people playing this game who have different opinions of what a basketball game should be like and what they consider to be important or not important.
    The most important thing to me is whether or not I can pick up the controller, and play 1-2 quick games just to blow off some steam or "relax". Does the game pisses me off sometime? Sure, but I also have gotten pissed off in real life basketball games. In fact, I have gotten into actual fist fights over a basketball game. To me, people just need to accept the fact that NBA 2K is not a "perfect" basketball game nor will it reach that standard with current gaming technology.

    The celebration is just as bad your player did a 3pt celebration as soon as he released the ball.
    I've never seen kawhi celebrate a jumper but on this game he will showboat.
    These comments are funny af....... dudes going d-day over a visual cue y’all gonna find a way to say “the game is trash” regardless of what 2k does....... I hope they don’t patch another thing so these dumb repetitive *** comments don’t have to be seen over and over and over again after each patch they release......... 🤷🏻*♂️🤦🏻*♂️

    Agreed. But it is getting a little tired how so many have complaints and never any positive feedback.
    While there are also many things I'd like to see improved, I still respect that all-in-all it's a good game.
    However, if 2k did a better job engaging with the community, much of the backlash would subside.
    Now back to playing 2k and listening to Spotify.

    why cant they out the option to put headband/s on any players and not make us go around the option.....

    WTF the New patch is 28 GB? Is It just an error for me? I think its too much,I have to delete a Game :/

    The problem is, that you are on consoles. On PC NONE of the past patches has been more than 1 GB. On consoles, they hit double digit GB most of the time. Nobody knows why.
    Im enjoying this game much much more than 2k19. Annoyances aside. The shooting in 2k19 was so egregious i had to shelve it. Now when im getting beat by shooters, for the most part it feels earned.
    Love the badge system this year for Myplayer. Really allows you to build the player you want. It took a while but im finally getting the player to where I want it to be to really affect games online. Went on some nice runs this weekend with randoms who really shared the ball, and had fun, even when we lost.

    I agree with you, for me it's just an annoyance. I personally wish the shot meter will go away for good. I've never been a fan of it and when they added the splash, that just made me hate it more. Anyone who had NBA 2k11 and 2k12 and even 2k13, knows arguably those games were more fun, and no shot meter was there, and certainly know green splash flash.

    You can turn it off, but can't get rid of the green splash. Also, it gets annoying to have to go into controller settings everytime to change things since the game doesn't save the changes.

    Yeah. The green splash like mentioned above. But I honestly with the meter never was made, again I can make an argument and I can probably get a lot of people to agree that NBA2k was more enjoyable when they shot meter did not exist. Loved back on the old 2K having to memorize all the signature shots and free throws

    Even exporting DNA doesn’t get the updates to older rosters

    And they won't show up in myleague. This sucks. It's like an update which you can't use.
    I doubt we'll get any of those MyLeague fixes like the G League glitch or the 2nd round pick glitch fixed during this gen. Obviously, I hope to be proved wrong but I'm numb to it now.
    Anybody seeing an increase in the CPU taking some crazy looking 3 pointers?In every game I have played since this patch I have seen at least 2 or 3 occasions where players take the ball and run out to the three to take some sideways fadeaway or something, early in the shot clock. Also seeing some wacky animations like players arms unnaturally shooting up to grab a rebound they shouldn't have grabbed.

    Patching game’s is going to be the future might as well get use to it. Not trying to piss you off but if you got a ps4 you should invest on the WD 4TB passport hard drive as an external then you won’t have to delete no games at all.

    Before this patch I had sliders perfected to where I was getting realistic 3pt totals ..teams shooting percentage was on the money and in line with NBA ...after patch it’s a mess..going to keep my game offline
    patches are not for offliners it seems yet they affect offline play..
