New NBA 2K18 Patch Just Hit, Awaiting Patch Notes

We are getting word from users on the forums that a new patch has indeed hit and is available for Xbox One users currently. Size of the patch is 2.39gb.

We’re still awaiting patch notes, but its very likely this includes some quick fixes to some major issues like the MyPlayer bug which has cropped up post release.

Patch notes will be here when we get them…

Update: The PS4 patch appears to be out now, weighing in at 4.397 GB. Still awaiting patch notes.

Update 2: Ronnie tweeted asking if Xbox Players ‘specific issue’ was solved or not.

Thus far it seems the responses are mostly in the negative to that specific tweet’s question.

Update 3: As of 9:25 ET, several hours after the release of today’s patch, we still don’t know what exactly it has fixed as there have been no official patch notes communicated. We’re still awaiting any word from 2K on this to know what, if anything, today’s patch actually fixed.

  1. Framerate glitch after timeouts please be in the notes . Everything else regarding gameplay needs to be left alone lol.

    Seriously. The game has been out less than a week.
    Jeez man.
    No doubt it is about stability and the MyPlayer crash issue.
    I’ll be disconnecting from the net before I download this patch. We already know what the patches did to gameplay last year.
    99.9% chance this is lag and my career fixes with nothing gameplay related, but better safe than sorry

    If this does anything more than fix that PNO frame rate issue and MyCareer disappearances then I'll be absolutely stunned.
    Still, props to 2k for getting this out so quickly if it does fix those two things this fast.
    0.000% chance they're touching gameplay 4 days after release, so nobody has to worry about that. Stellar gameplay is the only thing keeping people playing who lost their MyCareer guys. This place would be a circus of anger if the gameplay wasn't so amazing.

    I have to imagine it will be stability bug fixes.
    Game has not even been out for a week yet.
    Leave gameplay alone.....please.

    LD2K said friday that a patch for MyLeague was coming "very soon".
    I hope this is within this week or the beginning of next week...
    is the art accuracy part of this patch coz this current NBA players really need some retouching. coz fixing Ginobili's hair before the current ones a bit strange.

    This patch was completed before the game was even released. You have nothing to worry about

    Everyone saying no gameplay fixes, but what about easy layups being blown due to the slightest contest? That needs fixing for sure.

    No It doesn't. Your timing must be off/poor.

    I just wonder how something like that gets past the QA department. I understand glitches are common place on this gen, but they certainly knew about it, ya would think?
    Hopefully the framerate/TO is fixed.
    Also, strange how they never have Patch notes before the patch. You'd imagine some intern probably detailed them in some Email long beforehand.
    For anyone who's played post patch, can we see players stamina when we substitute on the fly now? How could they miss this before launch?
    Also did they fix the Key Zoom on the 2K Low cam? Currently the camera zooms up & farther back when it should ZOOM in close when in the paint similar to the 2K Wire cam last year. I want to use the 2K Low cam but it's currently unplayable for me because the Key doesn't zoom in with Key Zoom on. It makes it very hard to see what's going on down low. Why on earth did they remove the 2K Wire cam? I loved that cam.
    I don't like any other camera view so I really hope the either fix the 2K Low cam or bring back the 2K Wire cam. If anything they should've got rid of the Skybox cam if they needed the memory space. Nobody I know uses that camera view.

    I restarted my Xbox a little bit ago and it was there.

    I "Quit" My game from dashboard and immediately started it back up and it went into Upgrade. I had a friend that it wouldn't start after doing that. I had him eject the disc and reload it and it started immediately.
    Maybe some art changes? Any missing rookie faces that needed to be added? I just want that Boston player to look like his real life hipster self.

    I dont think they need a patch to fix the art, they updated Manu's hair with the quick fix. Rookies are mostly good. They need to fix a lot of legends. PS4 was having frame rate issues which might be it

    What is the proper layup timing this year? Last year it was as he players feet left the floor
    Yoohoo! 2k?
    Can we get some patch notes already? Having a patch out for over 2 hours and not having any idea what it does is kinda unacceptable. I love the gameplay by the way.

    That isn't suffocating defense, but it's good enough whereas it shouldn't be expected to fall 100% of the time. But, this is why there should be arcade and sim modes imo, give each crowd what they want.

    2K dev confirmed that there is no need for layup timing, if you do time your layup release you can get a slightly greater shot % (and the timing is close to release this year, where last year it was based on the start of the layup animation), but if you don't time a layup there is no penalty.
    If people are missing wide-open layups regularly, there is a problem that should be addressed.
    You know what? Disregard that post...the timing is waaaaay different you have to be quick as hell not like the previous versions(just tested it out).
    My apologies guys!!

    I think people just need to practice and adjust. The timing is different this year. If I'm shooting 60%+ with a 60 driving layup it 100% does not need to be patched.
    I'm worried this game is going to get ruined by patches.

    Do you mind linking that source?
    I know I sound like a broken record, but if I'm shooting 60% with a 60 driving layup (which includes heavily contested layups), I would be inclined to believe that the issue is not with the game but with the user.
    There's no problem with layups. I make easy layups every time and I miss heavily contested ones most of the time. Sort of like, you know, actual basketball.

    Curious to see what is addressed. Didn't read the entire thread so not sure if people have figured it out yet. Hopefully the My Player/Career crash is fixed as that is a major issue for that mode, even though I don't use it.
    For me I'd like to see a fix to some of the frame rate issues and slow downs I've been seeing. I don't know if this is on every console but playing on a PS4 Pro with a 1080p display I see slow downs every game, offline. Not a game breaking issue just an annoyance whenever it occurs

    What!? Gameplay is damn near perfect. Try not to take bad shots then and actually try passing the ball around for open shots. This is exactly how it should be. You think it's that easy to make contested layups irl?? Most layups are uncontested irl...

    Looks like the patch fixed the issue of some guys in MyPlayer, like myself, who couldn't dunk during games.

    Uhm no not fixed, not on PS4 anyway
    I could have sworn Czar said there will be no planned gameplay patches besides the one that was issued when the game dropped Friday. I wouldn't worry too much guys I don't see them patching gameplay unless there is something truly game-breaking.

    The type of shot/layup makes a big difference too depending on the player. You want to be thinking about the type of layups you attempt. Floaters seem to work well if you know a defender is closing out. Eurosteps are good to get around a player. The cradle type layups can be effective as well.
    Player skill of course makes a difference. I've noticed Kyrie is better than others at finishing at the rim even with some traffic, much like real life, but the type of layup attempted makes a difference too.

    It seems to be fixed if the parachutes aren't falling from the sky it seems during my testing. Also still lagging during overlays. Overall, I would say it's not fixed and still advise against calling timeouts.
    Humorously enough it's now a lot like the spotlight issue from a couple years ago where they would lag the game out online until the devs turned them off.

    Only thing that needs to be patched is the CAP system and the missing VC/MyPlayer issue.
    Gameplay is about as perfect as it's been since 2k11

    And MyLeague and MyGM. Tons of issues there too..

    lay ups are DEFINITELY broken. It seem even worse with this patch. Even when people are trailing behind you you'll miss from time to time.

    Hopefully no gameplay changes and just frame rates fixes when the parachutes come down and coaching adjustments are set in stone when you change them during a timeout.

    A quote from Beluba from another thread:
    Beluba
    Shots that don't show the meter, with the exception of dunks and putbacks, get a small boost if you release the shot at the right time. Timing on layups was adjusted so that it's closer to the actual release of the ball. If you pay attention to the controller rumble, you'll get an idea for when you should be releasing layups and hooks. This is more of an experienced gamer tip. I don't want to show the meter because it overwhelms casuals.
    If you completely ignore timing on layups and hooks, you won't be penalized at all. You'll get the same percentage as you would if you set it to real player %

    Apparently we're not supposed to be penalised for timing, so why are so many people missing so many easy layups?

    because most people are low rated. now me. my guy has a 90+ layup rating. so even if my timing is trash. i should be making layups with no defenders around say like Towns. which would be like 80% of the time. with defenders some what close. 60 yo 70%. with defenders on me that are good at defense. 45 to 50%. remember I'm a bigman. in the paint = high fg% and it gets higher with no defense or super short guys around.
    its broken thats why we're blowing layups. i hope the patch fixed it. i dont want to make every shot when a guy is on me. i want to make a lot of shots when a guy is no where around me. to make them guard me to create space for my teammates. and to also make me go to counter moves.

    Man people use the "broken" term so loosely. Anything that doesn't work 100% as we want is apparently broken. Layups might need a little adjustment but it's far from broken. Broken would be layup animations not triggering when they are suppose to or players missing every layup.
    I do think layup balancing is something that we won't ever 100% agree about. It's one of the things I hate when it comes to "sim" arguments because we all have different perceptions about what is sim and realistic. If they put layup success too high then people will be complaining about layups being automatic, which was an issue when the Live demo dropped and too many contested layups and inside shots were going in.
    I'd be cool with them adjusting layups a TINY bit, maybe adjust what qualifies as contested, but, IMO, it's far from "broken" or a glaring issue that ruins the experience. What I like about the game from my experience is that it rewards taking good shots vs bad shots. Now you will still miss open jumpers from time to time and hit heavily contested jumpshot (it happens in real life) but generally speaking you want to play smart basketball and make smart decisions. If it gets too easy to score inside then all you will have to do is pound the paint all game long.
    I'm playing a game now and the CPU just pulled Markieff Morris 3 minutes into the game after he picked up his 2nd foul.
    I'm not certain if it was like this before the patch, but I don't think so because I played a game against the Nets pre-patch and RHJ fouled out at the end of the 3rd Quarter.
    edit: the CPU also called a timeout after I opened the game with a 14-4 run.
    Personally, I think it's high time they've fixed the lack of fouls in sim games. This problem is too old and it is an integral part of the game. There's no way an NBA game should end with one team having 8 total fouls and the other team having 11.

    I can confirm that the Framerate drop issue is still not fixed. SMH

    Has it improved at all?
    The game has only been out for 4 days and still hasn't had it's "Official" release yet so no surprise that this issue, and others, haven't been fixed yet. I wasn't even expecting another patch at this point. At least it shows that the team is looking to address issue is soon as they can.

    I think I've seen more fouls called in this game than any other basketball game Ive played in the past. I've been seeing a lot of fouls in the paint and on drives. In some cases I'd say they are soft fouls, and in one case the announcers seemed to acknowledge there wasn't a lot of contact, but it helps teach you not to go for dumb blocks or reaches.

    Agreed 100 percent. The lack of fouls I think is really only a critique if he means non-reaching, non-shooting fouls due to just basic blocking fouls between two players when reaching (there are illegal screen fouls plenty as well).

    Guys in MyPark are trying to make layups easy when you still need to time them. And real players miss layups all the time. This is partly the reason why gameplay has been bad last year. 2k listened to these MyPark players and it ruined the gameplay for all modes.
    Starters still play to the last minute in a blowout win/ loss but they expect me to drop 100+ dollars a year on this crap.... worst 2k I've ever played.

    Another unfinished product is being patched.
    The problem is that the patch will fix things here and there and will also screw others too.
    Not buying the game this year. It is a considerable mess, as usual, but I've had my fill.
    2K wants to add as many features as possible, which is good, but cannot manage them well at all.

    It's quite honestly not fun to play even, the new features suck

    Nope. Incorrect sir. I just played a game where I was blowing out an expansion team in MyLeague. I was the Celtics and Kyrie, Hayward and Whiteside all have 34-37 minutes in the coaches gameplan, but because we were destroying the other team, these are the minutes the coach using ACE gave them.
    I leave it up to the coach to sub in/out the players on a rotation basis.
    Kyrie was supposed to get 35 minutes but played 20.

    I really hope they fix the VC glitch that makes the VC you get after a game disappear. 2K you owe me sooo much VC!!! :signball:

    Got the same problem on PS4, not just after a game either even if your just walking around the neighbourhood your vc disappears into thin air, also bought vc eventually disappears. I lost like 45k bought VC and around 20k VC i received from games if not more. Funny thing is i been playing myleague and play now all day today and vc still slowly disappeared so i gues 2k servers turned into a giant sink hole swallowing your vc

    Yeah I thought the same thing. Go to any other game that was a blow out (simulated) and they wouldn't have played. Only when you play the game do reserves get PT. That's why I'm annoyed

    Using Twitter replies as proof-positive is generally not a great way to prove a point.

    This is a concern I have when it comes to the perceived problems with the game. Can people please detail where and under what circumstances they are encountering issues. I don't want gameplay changing in offline NBA matchups because of complaints with My Park, My Career, My Player, etc.
    Details are important! Don't simply say "layups are broken!" "Bruh I keep missing open layups!" It's easier than ever to record gameplay footage. Let's provide 2K with some actual evidence to our complaints so they can see the problems and when they are occuring. I wouldn't want them to make a drastic change to layup success when the solution could be a minor tweak to particular situations.

    I don't what know what got patched, but I'm really not noticing anything different.

    100% sure the patch was ONLY to stop pls saves from being deleted
    No gameplay at all
    The save problem is a completely game breaking issue and it's causing them hours of man hours to fix. Tickets are taking so long to be resolved because they didn't have the personnel to deal with an issue like this
    They want to stop all new instances first so they can focus on the thousands they screwed over

    People overreact to some of the smallest problems and act like the sky is falling then of course 2k tries to over correct the issue and the game ends up a mess... Just fix myleague and mygm... The players disappearing and the VC glitch and go from there... The game hasn't even been out for a week yet... The game technically isn't releasing fully to the public til tomorrow... The game is awesome... It's smooth and responsive... Just take some time to get used to the mechanics and then if it's still an issue then let's bring it to 2k... Twitter is such a curse at times... Sometimes the public just overreacts and kills the game like that... Happened to 2k17

    I guess it depends on your perspective and, perhaps, the particular mode you are playing. I've had plenty of fun simply playing Play Now offline matchups against the CPU. Liking the game the more I play and the more I understand how the game works. I know I'm not the only one enjoying this game as there are many people that feel this is the best gameplay for a basketball game ever.
    Going along with my previous post, be specific about the features you dislike or what you are not liking about the game. Simply saying "the game isn't fun, the new features suck" does nothing to improve the game or explain what is wrong with the game, it just shows that you are dissatisfied without much explanation as to why.
    We helped kill 2k17 last year with all of the constant complaining... Let's not do that this year... This game is damn near perfect... Definitely worth the 60 bucks (though not worth me spending more on VC)

    Layups work finenin Playnow, Myleague, MyGm, even in mycareer in the park courts and mycourt but they dont work right in mycareer nba games i gues they seperated these all for some reason so maybe they can also seperately fix the issues i hope

    i'm not even sure what this even means.
    i've seen youtubers that are far better than I am at this game playing my career and having the same issue - chris smoove being one of them.
    the free throws and layups are a consistent complaint about the gameplay this year. it's just off.

    Or trolling...
    I'm not sure of the difference between frame rate and lag, but I am playing a MyLeague and the game is lagging horribly and/or having issues with the frame rate. I'm on Xbox one. It's unplayable right now. Im using a hotspot for an Xbox live connection, not sure if that's an issue, but again I'm not playing online. MyLeague. This sucks

    Just got home from school and eating dinner so I didn't know this patch was out in till just now. I know the game has not been out a long time but I hope the patch fixes lack of CPU time outs at least.

    It boggles the mind that we still do not have any patch notes telling us what exactly we just downloaded.

    it's been about 5 hours now right?

    That's not true. I'm an offline player like 99% of the time and the layups are off in all these modes. I disregarded it in MyCareer because I figured my stats were trash, but once I started playing MyLeague and saw elite players missing easy layups over and over again, I realised it wasn't my MyPlayer at all.

    Just a thought, but could it be they "patched" somethings but want to wait to see if the patches actually worked before saying something has been patched? For example, if they attempted to patch the deleting saves and included it in the patch notes, but saves still get deleted after the patch then they'll leave that part out of the patch notes. :y11:
    For future art updates on some classic players
    -please fix '13 Knicks amare's number and put his goggles on, idk how you can even get the number wrong when the pic you use for the player has the correct number
    -add some stubble to '04 lakers Kobe's head
    -if possible please replace Tracy Mcgrady's cyberface ASAP, it is almost disrespectful. If possible use a different cyberfaces for Toronto and Rockets models
    -put some high socks on '11 bulls Korver, pretty sure no one has seen that boy's ankles or shins in the past decade
    -easy fix but please add ankle braces to '11 bulls derrick rose

    I am a offline gamer to and I was having a issue seeing to many easy missed layups my self but the last like 3 games I have had layup slider at 52 instead of 50 and things are much better now.
    Question...? If there is only a 1 point difference between the two teams, and there is 52.9 seconds left in the game... How can the computer announce who the player of the game is already??

    I find this funny. I got player of the game in my career with 3 mins left up by 1 - we ended up losing that game coz I had low stamina and got ripped on two over aggressive drives lol
    Are people complaining about missing these contested layups? Please 2k don't change a thing. It's not like we are missing wide open layups I dont get why people are complaining already.

    go to youtube, type in "nba2k18 missing layups" - ALL of those guys are mistaken and wrong and YOU are right?
    just a simple yes or a no please.
    i'm not trying to argue w/you, I'm simply pointing out that if this many random people who don't know each other are having this issue, then maybe it is an actual issue. you don't agree?

    I did a search on that and the latest one I found was 12 hours ago, BEFORE the patch released. And people are blaming it on the patch, which is weird because I have my sliders turned layups down to 48 and they're fine. I can make them by timing it just fine.
    splashmountain
    because most people are low rated. now me. my guy has a 90+ layup rating. so even if my timing is trash. i should be making layups with no defenders around say like Towns. which would be like 80% of the time. with defenders some what close. 60 yo 70%. with defenders on me that are good at defense. 45 to 50%. remember I'm a bigman. in the paint = high fg% and it gets higher with no defense or super short guys around.
    its broken thats why we're blowing layups. i hope the patch fixed it. i dont want to make every shot when a guy is on me. i want to make a lot of shots when a guy is no where around me. to make them guard me to create space for my teammates. and to also make me go to counter moves.
    So you want ..... TIMED LAYUPS... ?
    I knew people would want this back

    Whether they're completely wide open or not, we're missing too many layups that shouldn't be missed. I'm not talking about being heavily contested, and I'm not saying that they should be made 100% of the time. Something that might happen once every three or four games in the NBA is happening multiple times per game in 2K18, and it's unquestionably unrealistic.
    I'm not a competitive player. I don't play 2K because I want to put up 60 points and 10 blocks. I try to play realistically, so if you think I'm one of these park players that gets salty because they don't shoot 100% every game, you couldn't be more wrong. I want games to play out like they would in reality and these constantly blown layups are not realistic, so it's irking me. I would be equally irked if making heavily contested layups were too easy.
    That's why I'm complaining. I just want 2K18 to be the best that it can be.
    So basically people are mad they aren't making layups on 4 dudes in the paint?
    Because Iv ran this game ALOT and layups are ok
    I don't see the issue
    I can't take stuff on here seriously after 80% of you said you should make 100% of the 3s you take wide open last year
    That was the final straw for me.

    Has there been any indication by Ronnie or anyone as to when we may see the patch notes?
    "Patch notes to follow" isn't saying much. Its like saying fall is here, winter to follow
