  1. All of these hairstyles in the game yet you don’t put any effort into changing them to their correct current look. Like what’s the point man what have you been doing not only that players accessories are so outdated and wrong it’s not funny anymore. If you can do ratings and looks then maybe y’all should hire somebody for one another
    Derrick Jones Jr goes down for playing outstanding defense and taking the toughest match up every night?
    Gary Trent Jr still rated as a below average defender.
    Also Gary Trent Jrs jump shot is nothing like his jumper in real life along with his hair
    Should have Jump shot 24, release 63
    Dribble pull up normal 2

    Sooooo Stuaff or whatever still refuses to update the haircuts


    That is KATs current hairstyle though. He only had the braids for a week or so into last season and was already back to that hair style by the time 2k added his braids look.

    Those are all haircuts I changed the players too , 2k didn’t make the look of those players look like that in their roster update

    I swear these dudes straight up don't watch Blazer games. It takes an extra month or 2 for anyone on the Blazers to get updated compared to other teams. Trent Jr is like a year out of date at this point.

    Derrick Jones Jr
    2020: 53 FG%, 13 points per 36 mins
    2021: 32 FG%, 7 points per 36 mins
    That kinda matters.
    Gary Trent Jr still rated as a below average defender.

    You mention defense w/ Trent and Jones. While I don't necessarily disagree, the Blazers rank 25th defensively right now (114.5 points per 100 possessions). They aren't stopping anyone. Opponents are consistently dropping 120 on their heads.

    Steven Adams has been a + player every game this season, really dont understand bringing him down

    If anyone went up or down in this roster it's a reflection of how much their stats differ from last year.
    Steven Adams
    2020: 20.5 PER, 14 ORB%, 24 DRB%
    2021: 18.6 PER, 12 ORB%, 20 DRB%
    Numbers get worse, ratings go down.

    They rank so low because they're getting blasted by cuts to the interior because Nurk isn't rim protecting as well as he was. We also ran into hot shooting nights of the Clippers and Warriors.
    Gary Trent Jr and Derrick Jones Jr have both be really good defensively in their individual performances.
    Also despite DJJ point output dropping he's actually been hitting threes at a higher clip. He's finding his way in this offense.

    No, he hasn't.
    2021: 5-19 (26%) - 0.8 makes per 36 mins
    2020: 37-132 (28%) - 1.0 makes per 36 mins
    Just about every player that had ratings go up or down even 1 point is performing demonstrably better or worse statistically.
    Jones is statistically worse by a significant margin (5.9 PER, to 14.9 PER), so there isn't really much to discuss about the merits of him dropping a point.
    Beyond his shooting, his assists, rebounds, and blocks are ALSO down from last season.

    Ah my fault - I just see him hitting threes irl on occasion and in 2k it seems nearly impossible to hit with him. I just feel it's too early to do drastic ratings decreases in general but his does appear warrented then. His on ball defense has even frustrated LeBron when we played them.
    Lillard went off tonight for example. Granted I feel they lowered him more because of the casual crowd crying about Curry and him sharing the same 95 rating - he had been struggling from 3 but his body of work should count for something?

    Lillard went off tonight for example. Granted I feel they lowered him more because of the casual crowd crying about Curry and him sharing the same 95 rating

    It's more because his production has taken a substantial hit through the first 7.
    2020: 26.9 PER, 63 TS%, 34 AST%
    2021: 21.1 PER, 59 TS%, 30 AST%
    Personal feelings & narratives don't factor very much once adjusting on a massive scale (adjusting 30 teams is a very different animal than focusing on one). It's all stats at this stage of the season.
    While there are some specific exceptions (Curry will ALWAYS have a 99 3pt rating regardless of what he's actually shooting), these are usually very limited in number. Dame is exactly the level of player they'd be making exceptions FOR, rather than against (ignoring altogether that he's the cover athlete).
    he had been struggling from 3 but his body of work should count for something?

    His body of work DOES count for something. His season production is that of an 85-87 rated player, yet he maintains a 94 rating.
    (They very likely combined 2020 + 2021 stats to get the current ratings - at least the ones that directly tie to stat production, like 3pt, rebs/stls/blks, etc).
    While I enjoy it that they at least try to acknowledge the Pacers success until now, the ratings still are a mess.
    Domantas Sabonis has 48 speed, 44 acceleration and a horrible 26 speed with ball. Please look at his game, he moves much more agile than that. He and Turner. Both are playing like if they are trucks on ice ingame. Dribble penetration is nearly impossible with them.
    I really don’t understand updating the rosters this soon in to the season. Most of these guys haven’t even had a chance to find a groove yet. I feel like roster updates should maybe be done like once every 15 games. Small sample size is a problem

    There is plenty of data after two weeks. They aren't tanking players on a 200 minute sample, simply nudging them in one direction or another.
    I don't understand that Dwight Powell has mid range and 3point rating as low.
    68 mid range, 65 3 point.
    Harrison Barnes and Tim Hardaway jr only 79 of ratings?

    If anything his 3pt and mid range ratings should be lower. He is a horrible shooter. This year he is 20% from three on 5 attempts. Last season he shot 25 percent on 39 shots. He can’t shoot.
    Now his mid range rating could have a better argument to be a 25 that anything else. He hasn’t attempted a single mid range shot all season and last season he missed every single one he took. You have to go back to the 2018-19 for the last time he made one and he shot 10 percent from mid range that season. He simply can’t shoot.

    I dm’d Stauffer this thread on Twitter I highly doubt he’ll look at it

    The devs lurk on OS, he's already seen it. There isn't any high-level info in this thread, so I'm not sure what you're expecting.
    Do you want him to work on player hair cuts? That's like asking me to do it instead of Nelson Blake II.
    The Ratings team ain't the Art team, that should be obvious.

    Trae Young's rating went up ? How is that possible ? If your using the stat game or actually watching the game it should be down.

    Trae averaged 29 & 9 in his first 7 games.
    He shot 7-28 (0-8 3pt) in his two games since to bring his averages down.

    He averaged 29 in his first 7 games because he was shooting like 15 FT's a game. He is shooting under 30% from 3 for this year. If you want to look at his whole career he is at best
    average shooter. He def doesn't need to be maxed out elite in all shooting ratings.

    68 mid range, 65 3 point.

    Powell Mid-Range stats
    2015: 7-21 (33%)
    2016: 30-91 (33%)
    2017: 22-75 (29%)
    2018: 12-29 (41%)
    2019: 1-11 (9%)
    2020: 0-1 (0%)
    2021: 0-0 (NA)
    Career: 72-228 (31.5%) - he's also been assisted on about 90%
    If anything his 68 Mid-Range is HIGH (I'd have it at 63, tops)
    Powell 3pt
    2015: 3-11 (27%)
    2016: 2-17 (12%)
    2017: 21-74 (28%)
    2018: 28-84 (33%)
    2019: 39-127 (31%)
    2020: 10-39 (26%)
    2021: 1-5 (20%)
    Career: 104-357 (29%)
    Given that he isn't a volume 3pt shooter (Career 1.8 attempts per 36 mins), his rating is appropriate.
    I would have it at 69, whereas 2K usually comes out about 3 points lower w/ their updated scale. His ratings are fine.
    Harrison Barnes and Tim Hardaway jr only 79 of ratings?

    I agree that both of these players are CURRENTLY underrated. Understand that this roster dropped on 1/7 which means ratings were finalized on 1/6. Today is 1/11.
    Hardaway's first 6 games: 15 PPG on 39 FG%, 33 3PT%
    3 games since: 26 PPG, 58 FG%, 61 3PT%
    In Hardaway's case, his rating is fine, it should go up in the next update so long as his play maintains.
    -----------------------------------
    Barnes did get off to a slow start, but he's been pretty consistent otherwise and 2K generally has him underrated. He's averaging 17 PPG on 51% shooting - currently a career year.
    As noted in my video, 2K has Hassan Whiteside #2 OVR on the Kings, which is a joke.

    Does he work on player accessories updating or just the numbers ? If they have been lurking then they don’t pay attention and if he does see this what’s the harm in passing it along to the people who do work on it? That’s all I’m saying you add options to the game just to forget about , I’m not like asking for them to go get the players in scan when the option to just press left on the toggle is right there. Yes I can choose to do it myself every update but that doesn’t fix the problem for online play
    What I’m expecting is they can show somewhat care in their product for the sake of authenticity of the nba players . Roster update just isn’t an overall thing anymore not for a long time it’s the total package of that said player . That’s all I’m saying but I won’t speak on it anymore it is what it is.

    He averaged 29 in his first 7 games because he was shooting like 15 FT's a game.

    Trae was shooting 44-33-87 through the first 7.
    His line last year was 44-36-86
    He is shooting under 30% from 3 for this year.

    As stated, he shot 0-8 after the update.
    He def doesn't need to be maxed out elite in all shooting ratings.

    I am not familiar w/ his attributes off-hand (and were not specifically mentioned in the OP)
    2K does do this w/ Steph Curry, who will have 99 3PT until the day he dies regardless of what he's actually shooting.
    Steph, Dame, and Trae will likely have boosted ratings for most of their careers in-part because they take so many high-degree of difficulty shots. Those players routinely pull from 30-feet, which does bring down their overall numbers.
    30 footers (Career entering 2021)
    Dame: 86-246
    Steph: 59-144
    Trae: 50-145 (2 seasons)
    LeBron: 31-108
    Lowry: 22-70
    Harden: 21-93
    Paul: 20-64
    This is everyone in NBA history that has hit 20+ threes from 30 feet.
    Trae is the only player under the age of 30. He's 22.
    A good majority of the players will be rated lower in my roster as I believe they're too generous these days, but here are players I actually have opposite for, so far through my roster editing work:
    Chris Paul at 90 (he makes every team he goes to much better, even when he went to Houston)
    PJ Tucker at 77
    Dorian Finney-Smith at 77
    DJ Augustin still at 76
    Landry Shamet at 75

    Does he work on player accessories updating or just the numbers ?

    While he has access to the document and can make changes, Accessories are likely someone else's responsibility. If they ARE his direct responsibility, it means they are justifiably a lower-level priority.
    That’s all I’m saying you add options to the game just to forget about , I’m not like asking for them to go get the players in scan when the option to just press left on the toggle is right there.

    That's how it works on the user side - not the dev side. It doesn't make sense for them to update ONE accessory. Time efficiency matters. They should have a list to knock them out all at once. As far as I'm aware, such a list is typically compiled and sent to 2K every year.
    If they have been lurking then they don’t pay attention

    Nah fam. They're not here looking for haircuts.
    99% of forum posts have low-value information: Obscure, redundant, flat-out incorrect, and mostly just emotional venting. Devs are problem solvers, not miracle workers.
    Yes I can choose to do it myself every update but that doesn’t fix the problem for online play

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but a player not having a headband or having an outdated haircut isn't killing the authenticity of the game. It's pretty low on the totem pole as far as "problems" when it comes to online play.
    What I’m expecting is they can show somewhat care in their product for the sake of authenticity of the nba players . Roster update just isn’t an overall thing anymore not for a long time it’s the total package of that said player . That’s all I’m saying but I won’t speak on it anymore it is what it is.

    It's also not the end of the world if player X is missing a minor detail. There are 500 players in the NBA (not including Classics & All-Time). That creates a massive backlog just based on the sheer volume.
    It isn't like other video games where the art team is working on 5-10 core characters. Just looking at starters & sixth men, there are 180 players league-wide.
    It's easy to pick apart examples on one team. There are 30 teams. Realize that we're 20 days into the NBA season and there are probably 50 players who came in with new hair.
