  1. For players who received general likeness updates, what do they normally update? For me it's hard to tell because I can't remember what specifically they used to look like.

    I hope they Continue to update player likeness as it makes the game to me feel more real so I'm all for updating all player likenesses and getting rid of all the generic players

    For players who received general likeness updates, what do they normally update? For me it's hard to tell because I can't remember what specifically they used to look like.

    A lot of times it could be something as simple as changing hairstyles, updating or adding new tattoos, and updated accessories.
    Is 2k trolling? Of all the WNBA players they listed that received new scans only Sabrina Ionescu, Lexie Brown, and McCowan got new scans. Emma Cannon, Aaliyah Wilson, Arella Guirantes and Ndour are all still generic faces. How can you list new scans for those players when only half of those scans are in the game?

    Sometimes when they announce new likenesses in a patch, they don't actually take effect until the next roster update (usually very soon thereafter; next day at the latest). In other words, the patch includes the actual facescan data, then a roster update assigns the face to the player in the official roster. For most NBA players with generic faces, 2k assigned a unique face ID number anyway this year so that once they install the facescan data, it should automatically be assigned (if I'm understanding correctly), but maybe those four WNBA players were oversights.
    Not making excuses, and I always thought it was dumb of them to advertise new facescans in a patch that don't actually appear once you've downloaded the patch, but just offering an explanation. You will likely see the facescans very soon, and for good measure you may want to tweet at Mike Stauffer just to make sure they won't overlook assigning those facescans in the next roster update.

    Hoping that’s the case, cuz Richaun Holmes still has the Steven Segal, shiny, slick-back haircut, not dreads.
    Didn’t see it mentioned but they also added ability to change and see play types now with old setting instead of workaround.
    Much more convenient when creating playbooks.

    Richaun Holmes looks like the only one on the list that I noticed that didn’t actually get updated, the rest seem to be in so idk what’s going on there

    Actually, it is different this year. The player Appearance tab is now no longer available for any of the CURRENT team players who have generic renders. This allows 2K to automatically add the newly updated renders in the game via Patch and not have to wait on a roster update to get them in. Previously the generic renders were assigned a -1 for their Face ID but now every player on the current teams is assigned their own specific face ID even the generic renders.
    Players also may not always receive a face render update in the patch updates as some of the Likeness updates are simply tattoo updates.
    I do wonder about a player like Pete Maravich that was in the patch notes as being updated but his render did not receive a change and he did not have tattoos to update either. Not sure why he was listed but I will inquire and find out.
    They need to look into the Image Upload issue. We can’t upload designs or anything for Team Relocation, MyTeam, and ProAm.
    Maybe the MyCareer ProAm guys could make some noise since 2K only listens to the online community.

    So I guess they gonna continue to keep patching their (my career) money maker and keep ignoring the major MYNBA bugs
    Smdh😠👎👎👎🤦

    Microtransactions are cancer.
    Say it.

    MYNBA mode is in sich a bad state. Hard to believe they still haven't corrected the 90 overall plus players in Free Agency and did you guys know that there is NO WAY to view your Team Chemistry % in MYNBA mode. They literally left it out and yes I have it turned on in options.
    The thing I always find funny about player likeness updates is that they can be out of date in a matter of weeks, sometimes days. It'll be interesting to see who needs to be updated once the season starts and players are sporting new hair styles, beard styles, tattoos, etc.
    Not complaining though. Been playing these games before the days of roster updates, back when I'd be tracking player movement and manually updating rosters, so I definitely appreciate that appearance updates are even possible. Just sucks how quickly these updates can become outdated.
    They really need to fix whatever is causing the Series X to shut off during games. Had it happen 4 times in a row today while trying to complete the Brickley's quest. Doesn't seem to happen during normal games, thankfully.
    THANKFULLY all these updates apply to current modified rosters. At least visual likeness updates do (not sure how technical gameplay updates would work but I’m assuming we won’t see those).

    What about G league players showing up in myNBA whatever it's called now. Dudes rated in the 90s I just turn it off as a workaround but still. Don't care about headbands...

    Didn’t they say they fixed that in a previous updated? SMH if they didn’t. MyNBA is a buggy mess. Just little simple problems. A fix for the G league issue is delete your entire G league roster. They’ll fill it with more realistic player attributes.
    I’d like to manually fill my g league teams with real free agents but someone said it glitched their MyNBA from working at all. So might be worth a try but have a separate roster save ready if it doesn’t.
    Oh wow, they FINALLY scanned Sabrina Ionescu. About time, it's not like she's been a big female star in the sport for a while or anything, starring in commericals with fellow 2K star Jake from State Farm. 
    Esp. since her model until now was clearly by someone who has never seen Sabrina Ionescu in their life.

    The 90 overall Gleaguers were addressed weeks ago. I have 3 MyNBAs going on PS5 and there are no 90 rated Gleaguers. The highest is like a 75 or 76. You might wanna check again.

    The NBA players seem to all be in, its the WNBA players listed in the patch notes that are the issue. Arella Guirantes, Ruthy Hebard, Emma Cannon and Aaliyah Wilson all have the same generic faces they did prepatch and you can see this in the screenshots posted. It seems like an oversight but its also an issue that it took this long to get someone like Sabrina Ionescu into the game and theres still recent high profile draft picks missing scan like Satou Sabally, Charli Collier, and esp Kysre Gondrezik who complained about her 2k21 appearance on twitter. On a positive note is all the new NBA and WNBA scans look really freaking good.
    Gameplay wise, I think there are major myNBA bugs that need to be looked at, tendency glitches, inability to quick edit draft class tendencies, etc.
    Pnr CPU defence is broken again after this patch. You can just manual pick and roll into the paint with a guard/Forward and score every time. Why is nobody else talking about this? It's 2k21 all over again.

    Must be true for you to create a whole new OS pf lol.
    If you’re right, I swear I’ll sell it second hand and never look back.
    Can someone confirm this? I’m won’t have time to play for awhile…
    So if I use the workaround to new scans in a old MyNBA file and save and reupload the player DNA, are the announcers still acknowledge the player? So are the sound bits by the commentators still triggering?

    Confirmed and blow bys are extremely easy. I am in scrimmage mode on Superstar. Looks like they caved in to the masses.

    Masses, including here if so, lol
    but at the same time, it's been said the game has changed drastically every couple of days since its been out- so its hard to really get a grasp.

    Will the old MyNBA not apply the new scans? My existing custom roster automatically replaced all players with the new scans, I don’t see why MyNBA would be different?

    I said this two pages ago on the impressions thread. It wasn't the patch but the roster update which ruined the help Defense.

    How so? Unless they changed attributes? Maybe global raising help defense will get us closer to where we were pre patches.
    This is why I’m happy I’ve been building rosters for weeks. Have barely played the game so won’t know what I’m missing as they inevitably destroy the best version of the game (which is always the first version of the game).
    Looks like it’ll be back to jacking up defense sliders like 2K21. Oh how naive we all were when lowering defense sliders when it came out. LOL
    I hope this can be fixed with sliders and/or rosters. Last year I spent way too much time polishing the turd that was 2k21 and trying to get it to play in a fun and challenging way.
    Ultimately I gave up and went back to 16, I'm hoping I don't have to resort to that. Who knows? Maybe a new update/patch will restore some of the game so that it resembles the launch version.

    They definitely DID NOT fix the 90 overall G-Leaguers....I just started a new MYNBA just to check it and they are STILL there.

    On ps5 it’s fine unless they mucked it up

    Not seeing any likeness updates, unless they come with a new roster that hasn’t been released yet.

    A bunch of rookies were updated but not all of them. A few NBA guys were updated as well. As far as gameplay and other changes we'll have to wait for the patch notes

    Another patch came out today?
    Well game is broken now. If you try to change defense settings you can't change anything and game makes it so you cant control any one now and have to exit the game wow. Hope it gets fixed soon.
