  1. It's sad they can't update Anthony Edwards. The guy is a beast for the Timberwolves. Anthony Davis needs updated too. Jimmy Butler as well. And I wish they'd give us the right to put headband on players.

    I’m glad it appears that we are getting art updates for players like Jordan Poole but I agree, would’ve been dope to see Antman, AD, and Jimmy Butler get updates since their appearance in the game has been outdated for a while. Let’s see if we get another art update after this or if we have to wait for 2K23. They probably intentionally scale back the amount of art updates they do during the season to preserve the “freshness” of updated player scans/appearances for next years game I’m thinking.
    I just don't get the logic behind how they update things.
    Former number one draft pick? Completely ignored.
    World's most famous team's court? Ignored.
    Completely unheard of 11th man on a G league bench has got a new tattoo on his left foot? Nailed it.
    Surely they have some sort of "priority list?"
    Unless, as seems blatantly obvious, they deliberately leave out a lot of significant / in demand updates so that they can 'add' them for NBA 2K23...
    When I see "new tattoo updates" and still having a major bugs on endless cutscenes when you challenge the calls -> come on brother...
    Or things like this (reported to 2K).
    can anyone explain to me why 2k uses such a horrible website design for their patchnotes? who approved this?! this is horrible! i open up the page and the first thing I see is a luka doncic pic of 1920x1080 resolution that covers the whole screen. then I scroll down and they use font size 1923901290312 to write down notes so that you need to scroll down endlessly to read anything. I have to reduce the zoom level of my browser to 60 %, then it's okay to read.
    what is so wrong with "old school", "archaic" websites that are slim and easy to navigate/read?
    also if anyone can tell me how to access english patch notes I would be really glad. It always redirects me to the german page....
    Are we going to get more hip hop, record label moves? I ripped the stage with the Game, against the game, now what? I really enjoy the open world scheme of the game. 
    Goffs
    When are the Knicks rookies going to get face updates?

    If you mean Grimes and McBride, I’m pretty sure they got scans on Next Gen already.

    Do you mind sharing whose setting you're using or what your game play setting are. Thanks.

    Can anyone post the picture or confirm if they fixed Jordan Poole's hair in the new update.

    The next gen patch is not out yet, Jordan Poole's hair are only under next gen patch description.

    “Added more CPU play calling variety”.
    The only sentence that caught my eye and enticing if true.

    Hopefully this will make the CPU more challenging 🙏🙏🙏

    Hopefully this will make the CPU more challenging ������

    Seriously fam.
    Tired of blowouts.
    Even simply more fun to play entirely would be great (on default at least).
    Although with the right custom roster this sounds like it could be good, hopefully it’s done the same in practice.

    Do you mind sharing whose setting you're using or what your game play setting are. Thanks.

    I honestly feel like it’s luck of the draw in how cpu is coded to play against us individually. Sometimes my cpu is very challenging and sometimes it’s dumb. Lately it’s been challenging.
    Firstly I edited every team to be sure players with little to no mid range tendencies have higher mid range tendencies. Also I lowered/adjusted many players drive tendencies (namely those with 99. I think only Giannis is at 99 now).
    I have my shooting sliders at 51/52 (changes between home or away) and CPU at 55/56 (home/away). Except I have CPU 3 point slider at only 47 since CPU 3 pointers are crazy OP for me. User shot timing impact at 20.
    Keep in mind I use my own custom all time rosters so every team I face has multiple 90+ OVR players and 77 OVR may be the lowest rating each team has. So these sliders work against teams that are super powered with talent.
    All defensive strength sliders at 50 except jump shot strength sliders at 15 (for both sides).
    User defensive ratings at 50. CPU defensive consistency/defensive awareness/on ball defense/lateral quickness at 80+ (could go as high as you want on those. 90 got too hard for me to create good shots).
    Adjust max and min WITH BALL speed/accel down 5 points. Adjust max and min WITHOUT BALL speed/accel up 5 points (so bigs can actually follow, provide timely help, and close out on you).
    Foul sliders at HoF settings except shooting fouls at 100.
    Oh and it’s important to use the BASIS for your sliders as HoF. Meaning modify your new sliders from the HoF setting. Apparently that makes a difference.
    Otherwise simple house rules like not spamming P&R (which CPU is actually decent against with those high defense slider settings).
    Also, I global edited help d for all players up 10 points. Though I don’t know if that makes any difference. Sometimes I see good help d, sometimes not. Still no mismatch help d but this game never had that.

    LoL we so starved for art updates that people are frothing at the mouth to see Poole’s update. Glad he’s updated but sad everything just takes so damn long

    Current gen player art updates should at least be on par with next gen updates at the least. Games like Madden, PES, etc. seem to have no issues doing this. I also think they need to start holding back patch/updates until they are ready to be released across ALL platforms simultaneously.

    Madden doesn’t have nearly as accurate player scans though (nor do they need to considering the nature of the sports). I feel like I see tons of Madden players who aren’t big stars not having tattoos when they do in real life.
    But yeah regardless, 2K should be able to change things like hair or update these things in a more timely manner. Personally I’d like to see more classic player updates. Kareem and Kobe’s recent redos show how capable they are when they try.

    This kind of thinking is exactly why 2K gets a bad rep. Freshness for each season? Have to be grateful they update on a seasonal basis? Screw that. Previous NBA2K’s did not operate on that type of model. Since hitting Next Gen systems, 2K has become extremely lax in regular updates for the game. We are two years into COVID. COVID is not an excuse anymore especially since they are still charging full price for the game.

    I never had an expectation of Madden to properly tattoo and scan over 1700 players AIR. I know there were those lawsuits that were filed by artists about tattoos being represented in games and that was a gray area. I was making the point that player updates in 2k should release at the same time or close to it across both next gen and current gen like in the titles I mentioned. 2k Current gen is still waiting on player updates that have been on next gen for over a month. That's pathetic imo..

    Next gen is unacceptable 🤦
    "Continued stability fixes and improvements have been made for MyNBA, MyNBA Online"
    I wish they would give more info. This vague statement makes me believe that they didn't make any actual improvements. Below are the issues that still remain in MyNBA Online.
    -Games are not saving
    -Still can't see our jerseys before games
    -Salary Cap Breakdown doesn't change when you go to a different year

    Gameplay feels the same, so that is a good thing.

    Phew. Sigh of relief to me if that sticks. Last thing I want to do is go down another slider rabbit hole and I’ve got it playing just right (considering I’ve accepted 2K’s inherent deficiencies which will never change).

    Wait they didn't fix the DNA Bug still? That bug must be very big on the same levels of Madden QB draft bug
    This is the third year 2k haven't fix this without any explanation and it was a hot feature idea for making draft class users but it gets irritating when you draft them you have to edit each rook years played
    2k Please stop giving us shiny cars without fixing the engine first
    Sigh, another patch, another round of disappointment that they still haven't addressed the inability to change difficulty and game length with play now with friends mode. 
    If you're not going to fix it, at least bump it from Pro level to All-Star. Is that too much to ask?

    This is what I’ve been hoping for since the game dropped. Honestly it’s one of the most inexcusable things I’ve seen (especially to not even address why it was removed).
    Literally 75% of what I enjoyed about 2K from 2k17/18-2k21 was our group of 6-10 ppl who would play this mode specifically. It’s completely unplayable without the qtr length and difficulty options.

    I can't imagine it's too difficult to add braids to Carmelo Anthony.

    Not the answer for everyone obviously but I switch his current player model with his 2008 Nuggets model and change the attributes and badges. It’s time consuming but at least he has braids.

    I’m the same way. After major roster updates like opening night, trade deadline, etc I go through and manually edit every players shoes, accessories, hairstyles, attributes, tendencies, and dunk packages. It’s tedious as hell but keeps my OCD at ease lol

    Try doing it to even the most obscure all time players! lol. I use my custom all time roster so the corrections have been painstaking but very OCD satisfying lol.

    See the play-in logic. Loser went trough.
    The winner of 7/8 game becomes the #7 seed and the loser hosts the winner of the 9/10 game to determine who becomes the #8 seed.
    The play-in logic is correct in the game.

    2k is correct. The winner of 7/8 goes to the playoffs, loser goes on to play the winner of 9/10 (and that winner goes to the playoffs). Essentially, the 7/8 seed gets two bites at the apple while the 9/10 seed have to win twice.
    They still haven't scanned these players who've been in the NBA and are not rookies. Devon Dotson, John Konchar, Mason Jones, Moses Brown, Markus Howard, Oshae Brissett, Drew Eubanks, Keljin Blevins, Cassius Winston and Anthony Gill.

    You don’t actually have to do it that way you can also just copy/import Melo’s Player DNA & physical characteristics from the 2008 model to the current day model.
