  1. I was able to get a quick game in and noticed the increased sweat right away in replay mode. Lighting reflects a lot more realistically off players now.
    Still seeing way too many ankle breakers on the NBA side. I figured that was something they'd touch on but I guess not.
    Defense on pick and rolls appears to be improved. I wasn't able to cheese into the paint as much and had more of my passes being picked off.
    Kinda surprised to see them list players warping and ball velocity as being tuned because literally the first play of the game I played had CPU Kevin Love disregard my defender and rocket layup to the rim.
    Ball velocity is still really weird looking on some passes, especially into the post. The ball shoots out of players hands at 100mph.

    They are aware of the ankle breaker issue and will most likely address that in a future patch.
    They didnt mention it, but anyone who has played will see inside scoring has been tweaked a bit. In turn, its balanced out the Superstar difficulty. Just had a great game. WAS vs CHA.
    Two things-
    John Wall wasnt subbed out the entire game.
    I really like how aggressive Superstars are, but 27 shots in 20 minutes? lol. 22 more shots than anyone else on the team.

    By tweaked inside game you mean toned down and less OP I hope?
    This is what Im talking about!!!!!! LIVE TEAM keep it up, your so in the right direction, only if we can get some franchise patches, keep the magic happening guys!
    Thanks
    I think 3s need to be tuned down too.
    We were hitting like 50% as 75 rated players. Now that I'm seeing 85 and 90 rated players, some people just never miss.
    The patch is outstanding though, so glad they are working hard,
    Yes, please, work on franchise! They do that and the game will be complete
    Will be busy for the next few days so I don't know when I'll get to try it out but definitely excited to hear it. This is why I try to support both Live and 2K, I feel like it brings out the best in both companies.

    Jersey names are still screwed if you edit a player in any way.

    Are you seeing this on a player that had previously been edited/encountered this issue, or is this on a fresh roster file?

    Definitely toned down...
    I just wish 3's were toned down along side it.
    Now randoms have even less reason to dump it to my post scorer, lol

    On my ongoing franchise not a fresh roster file.
    Please tell me I don’t have to start again? I’m almost 40 games in and I’ve played every game.

    Yeah same issue here. You're either just deal with it or start over. I started a new one with a different team but kept my old one going.

    In my past 4 live run games, inside seems close to same but people are missing a ton pf 3s
    Edit: just played again, a lot more, even wide open, 3s are not dropping. I'm very convinced they tweaked it
    Commentary is definitely much better, only complaint would be that it is only triggered after that player scores rather than just during game. Would like them to just talk naturally and not about a player only when he gets a bucket. There was an issue with DeRozan too where they thought he was still on Raptors.
    As far as Sweat goes, the lighting is still the same for me but if I adjust the in game brightness and contract, you can notice the sweat then..but default is still very similar.

    dang that sucks
    I will try tonight with fresh roster file. fortunately I have been playing franchise sparingly anticipating some changes by Season opening
    also nice list of fixes in patch EA thanks for the patch notes and timely release... look forward to more fine tuning. :)
    O a patch note to comment on:
    More fouls, good.
    More steals, more deflections and less sticky hands. It becomes possible to get the ball back after a bad pass
    Seems harder to stonewall people on d.
    Inside scoring might have been slightly tuned. No word on shooting. I played wars first gm and lost 154 to 94 or something haha 30 turnovers and they made everything. Other teams have been more like real ball.
    OH the pnr fix is cool. I just want them to fix contests on perimeter. Make it so you can still pull on people but make it so you can't just go up on someone right after it says shut down d and shoot a straight up j over their hands up contest and make that a lot.
    Keep patching lads. Cold lobbies sucked
    Edit: if they tweaked threes ha. I had to just block people on perimeter to make them miss. Fun to get locked in, but hopefully was tuned. You gotta play against those high rated bcs or Ws tho to really see.

    Dont know, I'm not really seeing a difference.
    I just got out of a 5v5 where someone was 11-14 in 3 pointers. He was a 95 though.
    The inside tweak seems pretty balanced.....guys are thinking a little bit more about driving into traffic..
    Huge props to EA Sports here.
    To patch so much this quickly, especially considering a lot of it has come from fans on here and reddit is super impressive. Well done!
    And even more than that, actually releasing the full patch notes is amazing! To those on the fence about buying the game, when they see the support and additions, it can only be a positive!
    I still hope you can keep tweaking and increasing both the sweat and lighting though. The update was quite subtle.
    Restarted my franchise and the names are indeed fixed but you do have to start over.
    Something else I discovered is fixed is the wrist accesories now show up in game!!!!

    Bummer, I'll win the championship before I start over.

    Ran Court Battles, Live Run 3s and 5s tonight after the patch and the game felt crisper and not as loose which is great.
    the only thing that still gets me is how hard it is to get a game with friends. once thats fixed, im good.
    Dang. Patch Is For Real smooth out some of the warping animation hitches and the game is extra smooth now and the game play feels very on-point and rewarding.
    Very impressed hope they keep tweaking it and improving it

    Agreed. Played 3 live run games last night and it feels way better.
    Was so confused. Hopped on my Xbox for the first time in a week or two yesterday and had to download 1.03. Hopped on this morning and had another update. Came to the forums and sure enough another patch. I like the activeness
