  1. Are... are these... actual patch notes??? Like, not just a few vague statements including "many other improvements???" Because I never thought I'd see the day...
    (Kidding. Good on 2k for their transparency with these. It's a great sign!)

    Don't kid. I'm pretty sure the entire 2K community was thinking the same thing as they were reading the notes, lol. I didn't even click on the article originally, cuz I was expecting some BS notes.
    Two big issues:
    1: Coach settings going back to default.
    2: Only 100 people in the entire city at one time, divided over 4 cities, afks, etc. But the bigger problem in that is insane lag during games. I'm wondering if they have fixed the insane lag, and if they are allowing more people in the parks yet.

    Anyone have a screenshot for Naz Reid? I’m on XSX and got the update but he still seems to be a CAP for me

    Still a cap on mine too

    This is something they gotta fix. So after the patch it’s still doing this? That’s not good. Hopefully it’s fixed soon. I’m on PS5 and I’m not sure if we got the patch yet. I don’t recall having to update my game.

    Excited for this fix, particularly in game sliders:
    Enabled Coach Settings, System Proficiency, Assign Plays, and CPU/User Slider menus in the pause menu of Quick Play games

    No fix on Jimmy, Duncan, or Herro? Team made the Finals and 3 of their top contributors look like CRAP

    Yeah not yet unfortunately. Really need those updates because they have guys like Bam, Dragic and Iggy looking amazing but then those 3 guys look last gen.

    Is pick n roll a issue for everyone? It seems super easy to spam the defense with the constant PNR

    Czar mentioned this would be improved in a patch, not sure if this was the one.
    Somebody must not like Marbury because he looks nothing like his real life counterpart.
    Side note, I wish they got rid of the blimp because it doesn't make any sense and fixed the logic of the crowd when it comes to in-game situations 
    Man the pick n roll didn’t seem this bad before the patch...... I hate the word but the game is kinda broken right now as u can literally score every time with that....... I hope they get that patched ASAP

    The pick and roll leading to an alley-oop is that most common play in PNO.

    It’s weird that’s not being talked about more, it really is game breaking as it sits right now

    Thought it was just me. PnR definitely feels different post patch. Same for on ball defense. Can't believe 2k is already screwing this game up.
    Pick & Roll was an issue pre patch, it was being talked about in the impressions thread. I haven't noticed it as much on SS and HOF...but l also haven't really forced the issue.
    I think Czar said there was a defensive adjustment coming in patch 2. Hopefully that cleans some of it up.

    Yeah only for certain teams

    Certain teams it goes to their own freelance. But even if you select a different freelance it always reverts back. This is the case for all teams.

    Can we get the editing coaches/gm/scout names and appearances option put back in for next gen? Don’t understand why that option was removed in the first place.

    Wow, that PG model is anything but impressive. It looks like an Xbox 360 model.

    He looks 100% better right now. I think we sometimes forget how far we came

    Ya dude saying PG looks like a 360 model on next gen was just trolling because he’s spot on imo

    I'm noticing some occasional glitches with the dribbling.  At times you will see a player do a hesitation dribble and the ball will stick to his hand never hitting the floor. 
     I've also seen cases where a player is doing a hesitation or crossover & the ball warps back into his hands before hitting the floor.  
    This was an issue in years past but it seems to be back.  Hopefully this can be ironed out in the next patch...
    Need that Pick and roll patch ASAP. Hard to have a competitive game against the AI when the most popular action in basketball produce points 80-90% of the time. Along with the still suspect transition defense
    I'm pretty sure this patch screwed up my MyCareer.  No replay's no options in-game - change commentary from 0-100 it doesn't do anything, same with replays, there just are none.  
    Wondering if I should start over, but I already sunk a whole lot of time into it

    That's easy offense...the "make2Kfunagain" will speak against anything what will give them easy points.

    I hope you’re wrong, Czar being involved I’d find it hard to believe he would be ok with that stance and it won’t get a lot better soon
