  1. Do you think is it possible a fiba teams mode, perhaps with legendary players like Petrovic or Sabonis? Or at least a huge create a team mode that allows it?
    Whilst I don't like the addition of youtubers - my stance is it's ok I just won't use them... people on twitter asking for refunds because of their inclusion lol
    The roster is getting better all the time...
    Adding legends to multiple teams is a great idea.
    Sonics being in is really cool too.
    Can't wait to see who else they add...
    They have confirmed Tim Duncan on twitter...
    I'd assume many people will be given 2nd and 3rd teams.
    More cards the better, I'm level 50 now which is max and every time you fill the level 50 bar you get a gold pack... I still have 10 or so to unlock before these guys are added in.
    Such a good game I am having a blast with it
    I'm still trying to decide if I want to buy this game. I mean I love the nostalgic value, and NBA Jam was one of my staples back in the day, but the games are so realistic and complex nowadays. I don't know, I watch videos of Playgrounds and it just seems like there's not much depth, I'm worried I'll be bored in a couple of weeks.
    Somebody sell me....go!

    I agree. For a $20 game in the "2k/basketball offseason" It's a great, great game.
    I said before release that the roster could be limitless.......so many possibilities and it looks like Saber is doing that. Good for them!
    I was Miami Heat Shaq away from having all the players before this update, now I need 30+ again.......it's cool. I'm a sucker for a game with NBA throwback players.....a sucker.....that why I loved Street Vol 2 so much. So many old school players and not one, not two but three different versions of Mike....good times.
    PS: I'm still waiting for my 1999/2000 versions of Vince Carter/Tracy McGrady. I will officially take over the world if they ever get released.
    PPS: I still think they should adjust the ratings on each players alternate cards. For example, all the Shaq's shouldn't be the same rating....Lakers/Magic/Heat/Suns/Cavs/Celtics in terms of dominance. Or Raptors Vince Carter cant have the same rating as Grizzlies Vince Carter and so on.
    It's isn't possible yet but they are adding that in a up coming patch - 2v2
    xbox has the first patch that added Bird/the ALT shaqs etc.
    they are adding alt version of McGrady and Carter.... 
    and they are adjusting the stats depending on where they are playing.... 
    i believe  it starts with this patch as Rose has diff stats on the Bulls... also they confirmed Vince would be bumped on up Raptors.
    Mintsa - im the same - the latest NBA jam let me down for lack of legends and it didn't feel like there was enough interesting stuff to unlock.
    adding players to multiple teams and making it possible to make fantasy combos is great and then adding more and more current players is cool.

    What ???!!!!!
    Alternate raptors versions of VC and TMac (with an upgraded VC!)
    Greatest news ever !
    Where are you reading this stuff ?
    It's all on their twitter feed but you have to read their replies not their tweets 
     
    They confirmed Raptor versions in one answer
    and in another answer addressed one persons issues with Vince's dunk rating and they replied when he is an a raptor jersey he will be a dunk machine or something similar 
    Was really excited for this game, I bought it on switch.   Was very disappointed that it didn't include online play.   Haven't touched it since then as I've been waiting for the 1st patch to arrive.   Switch owners were told it would be a few days until online and it's been a month now.   Meanwhile, other systems have gotten 2 patches and we are still waiting on the 1st one.   I hope the patch is worth it because I do want to enjoy the game.

    All fantastic news. I played a bunch last night on PS4, and really like it. Already talked a friend into buying it, so we are really pumped for the 2v2 whether it's couch co-op or online co-op.
    Decided to purchase the game last night after watching a few people play on Twitch. It made me think back to those days of playing NBA Ballers so I had to get it. Opened up my start packs this morning and got Epic Dominque Wilkins. Can't wait to play my first set of games after I get off work in 2 hours.
    The friend invite system still doesn't work for PS4. It sure would be nice to play my buddies with this game. And who wants to play with these YouTube guys other than those individuals themselves? I opened up that pack yesterday thinking I was getting something good. What a disappointment lol.

    Seems like the patch was released for Xbox One version. I had the extra tournaments etc when I loaded up today. Played through them and have just 3 challenges to finish overall.
    Wish this had some sort of generic season mode.
    Game looks extremely fun from what I've seen and the patch notes seem promising. Was getting all ready to pick this up on PSN until I saw that it's $26.99 CAD. I'll pass...for now.
    I finally was able to complete all the tournaments and the challenges in them.
    Now I guess I'll just grind out quick games offline by playing to 10 points.
    Played a few online games, obviously level up quicker, and was nice to see when people quit you got all the points you should.
    Had some fun with this game this morning.
    This game is starting to get to me.
    It's just unnecessary grinding.....
    I was one player away pre this last patch. They dump 48 new players/ new uniforms, I get that down to 12. I've now gotten 6 straight gold packs, all with 5 repeats.......that's just making us grind for the sake of grinding.
    Just let us unlock all the players, is it that big of a deal ?

    I feel the exact same way. Hoping the Switch update drops soon.
    I haven't found it that much of a grind, i am level 50 and then some and really enjoy the pack opening, if all the cards were unlocked I wouldn't have played it half as much. To me that's the reason to play. I've never had back to back full sets of repeats though, and since second patch I've had at least two new cards in every pack and I was at about 10 left to unlock before they dropped the 35 new players and extras in New teams... 
    id love some sort of season mode or proper custom tournament mind you....
    that would make the pack system even better

    How many cards do you have left after the last patch ??
    If your not 12 or under......you'll see what Im talking about then.
    Yeah I have only levelled up a few times maybe three or four since the patch as I have been busier.
    But duplicates didn't seem too bad but I haven't been as full on as I was before the patch.
    nothing worse than a patch breaking a game!

    Yeah, the first like 7-8 packs were good but since.....oh my.....
    Ok.....the honeymoon phase is over.
    Yes I know it was a $20 game, but......
    Opening packs is broken. After you get to certain amount of players left (12?) nothing but repeats. Extrememly frustrating.
    Online, oh online. This game is VERY laggy. No word of a lie, Street V3 ran better on my PS2 (and that game was 3 on 3 and had more going on on the screen than this game).
    Basically, if I host the game, lag free, I win by 40. If I'm not the host, well the reverse happens.
    Ranking system online (Rep points) is insane. I like the fact that you get different amount of points depending on each players rank but this is crazy. Plus 1 rep for a win or minus 49 for a loss (plus the game has lag ?). So I've gone for 10 straight wins and only got 10 rep points but got one loss and got -49. That's just not right. I cant select who I'm playing.......
    I've halted playing for now. I don't want to play it and get to the point I am annoyed. I'll wait and see if they patch it. 
    Ill pop it in for the odd game because I enjoy the single player but I won't chase the card packs like I was because I don't want to start to hate this game. 
    Amen.
    Still waiting for the Switch patch...which the devs are likewise frustrated in the delay.
    That and I can't beat CP3/Blake. Who don't miss a single shot.

    Came in to post something similar with some explitives but this quote will do

    The online lag for one of the teams stinks. I have the same type of games, get blown out, or blow out the other guy.
    Also, the online games are just a three point fest.
    Any ways to get gold packs other than when you initially beat a tournament or challenge? I don't think they is a way.
    I have been playing online using players from same team and using that duo until I get them gold. Trying to keep this fresh.
    Also, man, are the top level guys good LOL. I started playing the gold tier guys and I can't even get shots off.
    This game died rather quickly........it left as fast as it came LOL.
    - laggy online (basically host wins the game)
    - gold pack/new player road block (cant get any new players after a certain number).
    That in short KILLED this game for me, haven't played in a few weeks. I've actually moved on to mypark/pro-am (which I thought I'd never do..LOL).
    Sucks, this game had potential. Oh well. I'm not mad. It was a $20 game, and you know what, I got my $20 worth. On to the next one.....mypark/pro-am for the summer and then Live 17 demo in august is my route.
    I hope the Switch update tones down the CPU's ability to steal. It is absolutely ridiculous that Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain are at mid-court ripping guys like Allen Iverson and Steph Curry like babies with candy.
    Then on the other end you fight tooth and nail to get a swipe from those guys without having to push them.
