    Yesssss! I just happened to open up op sports app and saw this. Crazy excited for this and its my bday! Whoo hoo

    Happy birthday!!!!
    I start my week of holidays tomorrow. Perfect timing. I hope the multiple ea access accounts trick works again this year.
    Post franchise related questions. I'm on right now.
    No player editing in franchise. Confirmed.
    Players earn points to progress and you can upgrade, seems somewhat similar to Madden

    Lol How do you do that, do you have to pay three times?

    Yes you have to pay for the month for each account
    By the way the full game was already downloaded but it gave me a 3 gb update just now when starting

    no player edit in Franchise Mode is so shame. this game is not worth buying if player has ugly beard style or hairstyle then can't change it, can't change position if people want change position for their rookie playe and also can't change jersey number either
    The franchise XP system is similar to Madden's last year. You earn points after every game you can use those points on individual attribute upgrades. I simulated an entire year in my players had about 10 to 13 thousand XP which got them about 6 to 10 upgrades in one particular stat. Raised de'aaron Fox from 81 to an 82

    Can you edit the height of your One character? I wasn't able to in the demo.

    You can definitely do that in the demo, you most no be seeing it
    Kevin Durant hit free agency, the warriors were not even in his top 3 and he ended up going to the Mavericks. Kyrie Irving went to the Suns. DeMarcus Cousins went to the Pacers Klay Thompson went to the Hawks. I offered a Max contract to Kevin Durant as the Sacramento Kings and he of course said no. But after that, the next week Kawhi Leonard had the Sacramento Kings as his number one choice and he accepted a max deal.
    As far as the standings at the end of the season, the Warriors did win 55 games
    . The Knicks somehow made the playoffs. The Raptors barely missed the playoffs as well as the Lakers barely missing the Playoffs
    I'm currently at the All-Star break. Injuries appear to happen during simulations. There are several players injured, probably about 20. It appears however, it only about 5 of them are missing any games. The highest amount of games that look like they will be missed is 20 games. So not seeing any season-ending injuries
    Playing now and can confirm the sweat is exactly the same as the demo.
    Players look so flat and nothing like the first pic of Durant all shiny and realistic looking.
    I saw on somebody's stream on twitch that schedules in Franchise are still setup up weekly (ie advancing weeks). Does the league update as your play your games or do you have to advance a week for the rest of the league stats to update?
    This is the dumbest setup in any non-football video game there is. I would like to know why they chose it to be this way. It's truly horrible. I can do without in franchise player editing as long as they updated this

    I simulated 2 years of franchise. They made one trade per year. So the computer is trading but extremely rarely

    How are the computer generated Draft picks? I am still downloading it so can't check for at least a few more hours.

    In 18 you had to advance the week to update the stats for the rest of the league so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s still the same this year..
    As an offline Franchise guy only, I'm going to pass. If you're an offline Franchise guy then you won't be happy. This is clearly Streetball 19. I really like the gameplay, but it's not good enough to merit a purchase as an offline guy. No player editing (in Franchise mode). Questionable amount of trades (or lack there of?). Weird free agency results so far. Again, lack of jersey's. This isn't a game with a lot of replayability. Such a shame. I really like the gameplay, but this game isn't made for the Franchise guys at all. It's worth a buy on sale, but that's about it.

    My concerns with this:
    The Warriors could offer Durant and Thompson the max. So either they did not or the players took less money.
    I'm not okay with the former because no team in the Warriors position should avoid offering max dollars to two elite NBA players. If the concern is they are in tax hell then maybe but then that creates a follow up question of how budgets work in the game.
    The latter is maybe okay except that several stars left their teams so it looks like a problem rather than a random personal decision.
    Also, did the teams that signed these players offer the 4-year max? They better have or once again, Live has star players signing for below their value which is my biggest issue with how free agency is handled in the series.

    I wasn't going to buy it at all because of the lack of franchise news until I played the demo. $40 with the loyalty discount is fine enough for me.
    I'll probably pick up 2K when it drops to $40 for Black Friday so I can get my franchise fix

    In game injuries or no in Franchise?
    Sent from my iPhone using Operation Sports

    Injuries and Pre-Existing injuries are both in Franchise mode. There is a on/off toggle option for each.
    Anyone playing on Xbox One X? Wondering if the game has HDR enabled. I noticed with the demo on PS4 Pro there was no option for HDR. Wasn't sure if that will be true of the full game or not. That could make a difference in terms of the sweat and graphics all around. Perhaps there might even be a day 1 patch for it.
    Just disappointing to see that screenshot of Durant that is supposedly captured from the in game engine but, based on the demo at least, visuals don't look nearly as good.
    That's definitely underwhelming...smh

    It's actually really depressing. I really really like the gameplay and atmosphere. I wish they put more effort into Franchise. Between no editing inside Franchise, a very small pool of jersey choices, trade logic and free agency there is no replayability for Franchise guys. So much potential for a nice fun alternative to 2K wasted.

    Hell, just having player editing and 30 team control would alleviate a TON of those problems and I'd be perfectly fine with it not being as detailed as 2k's MyLeague (2k still has tons of logic issues, etc. which is why 30 team control is perfect). Draft class creation wouldn't hurt either, but at minimum I'd expect 30 team control and player editing to be in even the most barebones franchise modes dating back to early last gen.

    No HDR (which sucks because Madden has it, so does 2K) and the sweat is barely visible just like the demo.

    Just can't justify paying full price for the game. If the past few years are any indication it won't take Live too long to go on sale. By Black Friday it'll probably no more than $30 if not less. I like the gameplay but I know I'll get a lot more mileage out of 2K. If I feel the need to scratch that Live itch I'll just go back to the demo for a little bit.

    According to the list of XB1X Enhanced games, HDR is not available in Live 19. Maybe they'll add it in a future update, though.

    As far as the Durant screen, it's just lighting. The model and textures are the same. WTF posted a screenshot from the practice gym where he looked great.

    That's exactly where I'm at right now. I love the gameplay and overall atmosphere of the arenas, but I can't see me giving this too many hours to warrant the price initially even with the 33% off. Waiting like I have the last 2 games till the game was like $20-$15 during the holidays makes the most sense.
    How are the generated rookie draft classes?
    Do they have a scan of Jokic on the Nuggets? They're my favorite team and I couldn't even play with them because looking at the fake Jokic was so disconcerting.
    Is the game tighter, more polished than the demo in terms of gameplay?
    No HDR support is a little puzzling to me. It's all but expected for sports games these days, and most new releases in general. The game looks good but I was expecting to be a little more impressed when those player screenshots came out. Knew it was too good to be true but gave the game the benefit of doubt when claims were made that the screens were from the in game engine.
    Question for those playing, how are the generated rookies? Ever since I started to get into the draft process the last several years I'm really interested to see if there is any logic behind the generated players or if it's like 2k where it's just randomized and you get guys with red cornrows and full scuba gear.

    They technically are, but the y'all should have known it wasn't representative of the actual in game graphics given they were all from that highly stylized practice gym that has crazy lighting. There was gameplay from E3 that clearly showed what in arena lighting did to the players.
    They may not do this, but im pretty sure Madden added HDR support in a update to madden last year , it was not ready at launch. Guess we can hope for that maybe ?

    Agree. And as much as I enjoy the gameplay there are still flaws in that department and it's not like it blows 2K's gameplay out of the water, at least not IMO.

    You're right. Not that I expected the in game graphics to look identical but because of those shots the in game visuals are less impressive. That 3 on 3 at the beginning of the demo did look similar to those shots though. I've also been meaning to mess around with the instant replay camera to see how good the player models look up close an personal.

    In 18 you had to advance the week to update the stats for the rest of the league so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s still the same this year..

    Good news is that stats/scores update as you advance days. So you won't have to wait until the end of the week to get standings & stats updated

    Can you play with more than one team in franchise mode?
    Playing a game in franchise mode on all-star. The CPU got the ball down 5 with 20 seconds left in the game and literally just stood at the 3-point line and ran out the clock. This is just embarrassing... UNACCEPTABLE!
    Of all the things we know and have seen, i think the choice of Jay Williams as a commentator in the game is the worst. He is super terrible. I was hoping he would get better in the full game.

    Ughh things like this kill Live for me. The basketball IQ and logic just isn't there sometimes.
    The commentary is awful, sounds very robotic.
    I’m not a big Pro basketball guy, but live needs to bring something different than 2k to the table.
    They have the women’s (WNBA) but can’t understand why they don’t give that a push with some parallel Franchise play.
    - it’s different and to be really honest, more exciting to play vs with the men.
    Even with Gameplay Speed at 100, still sluggish to me.
    Player editing is so not User friendly.
    Rosters/Players will need to be edited for sure esp with several PF having handles like a PG.
    I tried though!!!
    Honestly, this game should release at a $30 dollar price tag at most... The more I play the more I get extremely disappointed... Canceling my preorder. Which I have for only $35 dollars... Still a waste to me.
    WNBA news?
    Is there a franchise for them? Can we wait WNBA rosters? Are we able to create female players to add to the WNBA rosters?
    Thanks in advance for any answers, I've been dying to know lol

    Does anyone know if coaches get fired in franchise or if you can choose a coach and then get fired and picked up by another team like madden? Or are all the coaches static like last year meaning you play a 25 year franchise and the coaches on all the teams stay the same.

    I honestly don't understand how they can't throw together a season mode for the WNBA, forget trades or other logistics just allow us to progress through a season and the playoffs so there's at least SOME weight behind the games instead of random play now games that mean nothing.
    I thought it was a huge waste of potential in 18 but this year is absolutely unbelievable.
    Reality is hitting home about the state of this game now.
    I'm loving how the ball handling feels while strictly using the left stick only. There's literally no zig zag cheese this year because of real player motion. If I go left to right back and forth with the left stick, my ball handler will make organic half spin moves instead.

    Can we play on the streetball courts offline?

    Killuminati
    I'm also curious about this as I don't plan to play online

    Do you mean can we play on the streetball courts outside of "The ONE" mode? If that's what you're asking then from what I can see the answer is no, just like last year. Personally, I do not play The ONE mode because I'm not a fan of playing in the 'player-lock' mode. I just play the 5-on-5 NBA games.
    So from what I have seen these courts are not available in something like Play Now mode as there is no option to choose a court when setting up a game between two NBA/WNBA teams. Not sure if the streetball courts are available in Ultimate Team as I don't really play that game mode either.

    I would not buy this game if it were not for the fact that I just don't like 2K's gameplay anymore. For whatever reason I prefer Live in the gameplay department. So I will be buying through 18 to get it for $35. To me that's worth it.

    Agreed, I think the gameplay officially looks and feels more realistic than 2K's. I think they will match 2K in the offline game modes next year. But for now this product they've created for 19 is of value.

    You think they’ll come close to matching My GM next yr?
    I played about an hour of my 10 hours and there are a bunch of things I like. The arenas are nice. But I’m a franchise player and I started up the first game of a Lakers franchise and the commentary didn’t even mention it was game one, that Lebron had signed and it was effectively just another Play Now game. There doesn’t seem to be much individuality between players. I’ll play the trial but not buy and just download when it becomes free like I did last yr. I’ll give EA their dues, they’re trying to muscle their way into the area that 2k has locked down - player creation team gameplay. That’s not my thing.

    That dont sound good a lot of big name players going to bad teams that shouldn't and no way do the Raptors miss the playoffs no way.
    Looking at this game come live 20 EA should really focus on franchise mode, clock management both are basically broken and like nothing else. That is how bad those 2 things are and the rest of the game is pretty darn good including the crowed being really good I would say from playing the demo dont have EA access on ps4.

    That's terrible there is nothing for WNBA. Talk about EA missing a huge opportunity to promote something and set themselves apart from 2K. Really cheapens the exciting news that female players could be created and the brand in general. Makes them look like a throw-in.
    Thinking about changing my password and let someone else finish out the rest of my NBA Live 19 trial. I've seen enough and canceled my preorder. If any fencesitters would like me to share it please PM me and let me know.
    I really hope everyone else is enjoying Live 19. It's a really fun game, but it's just not for me.

    Franchise:
    You can sumbit a player to be traded and receive multiple offers for him.* Last year was all manual trading.

    So like Trade Finder from Live 14 Dynasty???

    Of all the things we know and have seen, i think the choice of Jay Williams as a commentator in the game is the worst. He is super terrible. I was hoping he would get better in the full game.

    Nah Jay Williams actually goes into depth while color commentating & he has good, sometimes great insight, similar to JVG. Its Ed Cohen who was the bad choice. He sounds like a boring robotic hybrid of Marv Albert, Ian Eagle & Mike Breen

    They at least give you the option for injuries, but I haven't seen any in game ones. Franchise you can choose to toggle pre-existing injuries and injuries on/off.

    Any alternate courts available for teams that have them?

    Raptors don’t have the gold and black one nor do they have that uniform. I’ve not seen one for any other team either.
    I just don't see why anyone would buy live over 2k givin how bare bones franchise mode is. With all the sliders and new features they added in myleague. i'm picking up 2k everytime. Live still got a long way to go.

    1. Franchise is not everything to everyone
    2. Gameplay matters and Live plays amazingly
    3. The One and The Streets are superb

    No hate on nba live but they really have to show way more effort into other features if they ever going to surpass 2k. They did improve gameplay wise but that isn't going to warrant a buy from me if everything else is barebones. Everything outside of TheOne is lacking you might as well just call it TheOne 19.

    What the above guy said. Also poeple want something fun and new again, 2k arguably hasn't make significan't strides in years. I'd say 16 was my last love for 2k this gen. Before that, I was nba 2k13 on the 360. I think the One is just enough for people to be happy, and who knows what they will patch in for us down the road for the limited Franchise mode.
    A little help. So I finished the 10 hour trial and have Live preordered. Am I not allowed to keep playing once the trial ends? Do I have to wait until the 6th?

    Because I prefer playing sports games over watching them and fiddling with convoluted menus and and excessive options?
    I have every 2K and Live that have released this gen, and 2K was easily the best option. But each year I enjoyed the gameplay less and less. Finally, last year, I ended up playing Live a ton more than 2K. Before preordering, reinstalled 2K, so I could verify if I still really felt this way. It wasn’t close, as 2K just feels horrible to me.
    Maybe I should head over to the 2K threads and start this discussion. Or would that be trolling?

    For $5 you can purchase a month of EA Access for second gamer tag on your console. Then, as long as you have that second gamer tag signed in along with your gamer tag, you can play the trial for another 10 hours on you current gamertag. Did this for Madden, and will extend it to second month for Live and maybe NHL.

    Just don’t forget to cancel the extra ea accounts before the next months billing period.

    Post franchise related questions. I'm on right now.
    No player editing in franchise. Confirmed.
    Players earn points to progress and you can upgrade, seems somewhat similar to Madden
    You edit before the franchise start. You can edit players in regular menu screen. Then go into franchise.

    no player edit in Franchise Mode is so shame. this game is not worth buying if player has ugly beard style or hairstyle then can't change it, can't change position if people want change position for their rookie playe and also can't change jersey number either
    You can edit before you start franchise.

    Gameplay is stupid flawed. The control on shooting is not there. I put up shots that have no business rimming out...then other shots look too strong only to softly roll in. Point blank layups pouring out the rim. Moments when I would easily bang on players turn into a weak layup. Its pretty frustrating to witness.

    So exactly like real life basketball then.

    Yes. The mode only makes sense if you do.

    So, court battles is just a retrofitted ultimate team? Like a street ultimate team? Where you cannot player lock?

    There's actually a ruleset that you or any opponent can make the court battle game mandatory to player lock.

    By mandatory meaning there’s an option?
    It’s not ultimate team. It’s just a fun strategy mode.
    You own your court, and you defend it by using 5 players from your roster of players that you unlock. But these 5 are not controlled by you, they are controlled by the AI. So it is a single player mode, essentially.
    The trick is, there are gobs and gobs of rule sets and handicaps you use to make it tougher for your opponent to beat your court. Rule sets are intended to play to your team’s strength. Handicaps Force the human opponent to assemble their team or play in a way that increases the difficulty.
    For my court, I am using a bigs line-up, with a C, two PFs, Ben Simmons as my SG, and a PG. The rule set is Inside Out. Dunks are worth 4, layups -3, jumpers - 2, and three pointers - 1. THere are also gameplans to unlock and use, a DVR I have Feed the Bigs.
    I don’t know if anyone has handicaps unlocked yet. But they can force you to use certain players or types of players, or add other chalkenges to make beating the AI tougher.
    Games might be to 11 or 21. They could be two halves. There are some really cool rule sets. Before the game you can see who your opponent is using, and what their rules are. You can then adjust your roster and gameplan to attack them.
    THe goal is to control as many courts as possible. If you control your own, you earn more for your wins. If someone beats you, then to get control back you have to beat their squad by their rules. So it behooves you to always defend your court before attacking.
    You are given a range of teams to take on, both above and below your team’s OVR. You also can scroll through a list of your friends’ courts, which is where I focus, because that is fun. You earn points based on your opponnts’ OVR, the difficulty you choose, and the difficulty of the rule sets and handicaps. Those points are used to assemble a roster, unlock rule sets, handicaps, and gameplans, and to customize your court.
    The games are quick and fun. The halves are just 5 minutes each, generally. I played a match to 21 that was like skins. If a team takes a shot, but misses, the points that shot is worth is banked. The next shot that goes in gets the points for that shot and the banked points.
    So my opponent missed a three, and I then came back and score a regular basket, which netted me 5 points. Same thing happened on the next possessions, so after two possessions I was up 10-0. Obviously that was over super quick.
    Some have pointed out that the AI can struggle to play some of the rule sets. But that’s the point. You have to craft a team, a rule set, a handicap, and your team’s gameplay to overcome that. This is not sim. But it is fun and rewarding.

    Thanks a lot! I’ll have to do that.
    Where do I buy shoes on this game? I'm playing the trial version and I'm in the league and don't want to wear the default Nike kicks but I don't see crates for kicks like they had last year
    After playing this game all last weekend I'm convinced ea is basically going to sales us $60 pick up play game 
    I mean seriously player editing is lacking again, there is still no sense of player individuality 
    I'm not going to list the other issues list is too long
    This is the perfect pickup up play basketball game without caring about the actual nba side of it

    once you go into the nba store you should see a screen where you can change outfits and equip shoes etc. It's in a few places, should be on the main screen of "The One" too.

    I just tried doing this and it's telling me I have to buy the game.
    I played on profile 1, 10hrs ran out, signed in with profile 2 (which has an ear access account as well,) and it told me my time had expired/purchase the game.

    Make sure you sign out of the profile that you ran out of time with before you launch the game. It will sometimes default to it if your signed into both pre game launch.
    Also just so you know sometimes the game will boot you out of the game shortly after it loads saying something along the lines of “you switched profiles” just reload the profile you want to use and you should be good to go.
    For some reason I would get that message in Court Battles. Not in a game, but while editing my roster or court. Kind of annoying, but pretty easy to launch and get back to it.
    Would really suck if it happened mid game. But then, it's only the trial, so by tonight it won't be an issue.
