  1. I hope "general stability improvements" possible mean something to do w/ auto-subs and a tune to the mid range game - but we shall see! - at least its a patch

    I hope this stops the disconnects during online h2h matches as well.

    Can someone tell me what the Defensive Trait, Quick Recovery does? Also How do you earn it as a defender?

    while you wait for a reply, the best way to find out about a trait bro is go to the trait menu and click "more info" or "info" not sure which way it's worded and it will tell you all the answer's you need to know, what it does and what you have to do to get it.
    Everyday I check in to see if there’s a new patch and was excited to see this until I read the notes. 
    Still no no fix to AI tendencies. Hopefully next one.
    Tuned Slider impact for shot contest
    Praise Arecus! Hopefully this means that players will be able to hit contested shots like in the real life. It was way too strict before, and that also hurt the midrange game.

    I did notice that I was able to hit some contested shots.

    Tips offs and cpu trading? You're really butt hurt of this? Seriously, go find a text based sim.

    I wonder if you know, that this offseason:
    CP3 was traded
    Paul George was traded
    Carmelo Anthony was traded
    Kyrie Irving was traded
    Jimmy Butler was traded
    Isaiah Thomas was traded
    Last year, Demarcus Cousins was traded as well.
    But ok, go ahead and call the dude "butt hurt" because a FRANCHISE mode in a SPORTS game has no trades.
    I mean, its not like its important right??? (obvious sarcasm, if you still dont get it)

    Do cpu teammates still just stand still looking like idiots on offense? (No motion)

    I actual witnessed some nice movement, without even calling plays. I could be wrong.

    I showed this to the devs on twitter with screenshots and all.... it was liked by them, so they do know about it. When or if he will be fixed, who knows lol.
    Here's another bad one:

    WTF
    I mean sure, if you all want to be nitpicky, Zhou and Bogdan's scans' aren't the greatest, lol.

    Lol...Yea, I guess I'll stop complaining about Ben Simmons and just be happy his scan came out a little more accurate than these guys.

    Melo got his beard, cheers devs :)

    Honestly, even if it goes little by little, I think by mid November most of the graphics-related issues such as face updates and all that will be mostly done. NBA 2K promised this years ago and I don't know if they have been delivering, but EA is definitely doing their part this year for sure. I'm pretty pleased with this as I'm obsessed with all those stylistic things.
    Nothing about being able to skip Cutscenes of TOs, Halftime, Still Photos...
    Also, have they fixed the shooting? Why do open/good releases miss more than others (outside of excellents)?
    Again! Game has been out a month and still cant start a Franchise. Wrong numbers, skin colors etc. Until they allow us to edit Rosters in my eyes this game is not worth the money

    You can change the settings on how frequent you want cut scenes displayed. By default it's on the higher settings. You can skip the halftime show too. Just hold X I believe.
    I don't see a problem with open/good releases. I think most people felt contested shots went in far too little compared to open releases.
    I can't put my hand on everything, but I'm liking the gameplay more and more. I'm very pleased with how this game plays on the court and having a blast doing so.
    I had one game after new patch on franchise 48 minutes super star difficulty. Player movement is like more free (better).I think speed is higher. Had to lower it from 50 to 40.post play seems better & more realistic. Bigs when catch the ball near paint now perform normal jump shots instead of standing floaters. I could not do the pull the chair move on cpu not even once. Pre patch I did this 5,6 times per game
    More contested drives are out now. Cpu plays more midrange. I was against S. Antonio. Overall seems better only thing that seemed the difficulty is toned down, maybe is due to the fact that cpu was not so aggressive in the paint
    I won by 10 & I was ahead even up to 20 but maybe it was only one game. I hope difficulty is not toned down because even on super star it will be easy & not a challenge. ..have to test it further

    40 game speed?!
    I don’t feel like the game is quick and real enough until 80-85 speed or so.

    If I play with speed above 60 scores goes up to 130 -140 points. It's not realistic. And this is with sliders for all shots to 40 , fouls to 70 & air & ground contacts off & on the ball to 80...
    But apart from all that game tempo is like "crazy" for me with speed above 60:)

    The improvement of the shot meter timing has been big for me...has made shooting feel so much more natural. I have to give them props for improving the pull up game too!
    The jumpshots have improved massively since the original demo. The hitch is gone and it just looks and feels smooth.
    I do think they need to relax the ‘guarded’ jumpshots though. I’ll upload a clip later but basically a shot where you are wide open and only a split second before the ball is released does a defender jump at you and even though they are late and still not within reach of a block, the game calls this guarded. Which is wrong obviously and hurts the fun a bit.

    Have you tried shooting without the meter? On 2k I actually shoot better with meter disabled too.

    For me, patch improved the complete motion & fluidity of the game BUT the game is a lot easier now against cpu even on superstar. There is no challenge which now results no fun . They some how removed cpu aggression off & Def . it completely ruined the experience for me. Defeating super teams with more than 20 points lead. Is there anyone else seeing this?i don't play on line at all so I may try to delete patches

    Just curious. Are you playing in Franchise or Play Now/Tip Off mode?

    I play on Franchise with Timberwolfs.Post patch the game is easier than before last patch & way to easy since the begining.I tried speed settings & deferent sliders(always some for me & cpu) without luck.They ruined the game in my opinion.In every (always 48 min)game 1st quarter is like 40+ for me & 25+ points for cpu.I win games vs top teams by 20 points & 30+ points with lower teams.Games always finish about 140-120 points.Cpu plays like retarted on superstar with last patch.Overall movement & footpalnting is better after last patch but they play like idiots.They may shoot before 10 sec past after possesion & they suck generaly ,especially on defence,they cant guard nobody,if i try R-Dpad for guard ,winger to come off screen almost always i can hit an easy 3 because the defender always stucks somewere far.I end up sim games because there is no challenge.
    Anyway i dont play on line ,so i hat to delete game, except saves,install again without any patch & YES,i have a great time again!It plays very well as it was pre patch(even with some glitches) but games are on the verge again,cpu run the clock now when they have to & the shoot quick when they have the option,on defence they now play D.Effective dteams & quick recoveries,generaly its great & challenging.More fouls ,totaly more realistic,fewer posseisions,1st quarter ends now somewere 20 points for both teams & games ends near 105-115 points and are so close now.
    I prefer this ,even with wrong rosters & not updated player models:mad:
    Sory for my English & for Big post
    Things l would love to see for the next patch...
    1. Post Move strange push away into jump shot animation
    2. Not being able to turn around when the CPU drives to the lane.
    3. Lack of fouls by the CPU
    4.  For no stick users step back jump button option. Like a double tap the shot bottom away from the basket. 
    5. Fix freezing during games
    6. An in game time out button instead of having to go to the menu.
    7. More teammates helping teammates off the floor after a foul
    8. Less saturated color so the game looks more realistic and add a really light blue filter to some courts
    9. More audio cues for Jeff 
    10. More updated player looks beside super stars.  Raptors Center Haircut is one for example, Lin's dreads, DeAndre Jordan's dreads etc.
    11. New Sliders for game-play
    To the guy saying that EA needs to fix number & skin colors on players & that they need to add in edit roster back into the game. I haven't played live besides the demo but bro everybody playing nba live 18 right now should be excited & happy of the things EA has added & fixed because they're at least listening to you guys & updating players likeness & slowly getting to the players you guys think that need to be updated because I'm playing 2K & they haven't did any kind of player update & a lot of us have been constantly asking like crazy for two years now & nothing. Not even a response. They're constantly pay attention to online players instead of the players who made them what they are today & thats on part of them making offline game modes that we all love like franchise mode (now known as my league & my gm) just seeing how much they constantly update players just tells me they're listening to their fans want players to look realistic. Don't get me wrong I love 2K a little more still this year but it just seems like they throw something little for offline players & than just focus on online which I get why because that's what's bringing in the money but still offline players should get some notice too like EA Is doing for their players & game. So much props to EA for doing that

    A good shot/open in the nba is considered 'guarded/contested' in live 18, but I haven't played since the patch dropped, so hopefully that was been addressed.
    SO why....
    Does this game not have Free play mode whereby the season is replicated on a nighty basis in time with the real NBA schedule?
    I should be able to play now and choose from all the night's games

    It did in 16, even had real life game challenges.
    Disappointing.

    Honestly, the game has gone backwards imo in terms of being an NBA game as such. Franchise mode has less features than games 15 years ago on a PS1. Season mode is basically an afterthought. The play today's games feature was great a couple of years ago and, at least, offered 'something' to play along with the real NBA season.
    It really looks like there is a massive move towards The One and street mode basketball...would not be surprised if that is all there is by 2019.
    I assumed the games of the day would open up once the season started. I was surprised to see none were available...I also liked the challenges from '14-'16. Hopefully they can bring that back next year..
    Like some have mentioned.....looks like the priority is The One, which I somewhat understand. It just sucks when they have things like a OKC Melo challenge out in 2 days, but not update the trade until a week later..

    Obviously they wanted to fix the game on the court first !

    Man that really sucks about play today. I too was expecting it to pop up when season started.

    Definitely a great feature that is missing.
    Does the "other" basketball game offer this?
