Every time you press a button, an action has to happen on the court. A lot of ghost fouls in Live 14
Passing improvements, increase the zip of the pass
Dribbling needs to be more responsive as well, switching from a crossover to blowing by your man with Kyrie shouldn’t have animation hiccups
Speed of the game
Problem with NBA Live 14, the speed of the game is a lot slower than an actual NBA game. The game moves too slow, and the fast breaks aren’t true fast breaks. NBA Players have speed, and great body control, have to mimic this.
NBA Players can switch speeds in seconds, have to try to mimic that
Transition game in general whether offense or defense look like a “flock of birds”
Tweak the foot planting tech. Pressing the defensive stance button has a good taste of what the foot planting is capable of, maybe try to implement it in all areas when the player moves. Sometimes the players feet go through the ground.
Must have – Quicker in-bounding animations.
Player movement detail
Off ball movement have to have more animations. Players have to flare their arms up to get through screens, squeeze through animations, players tripping over feet etc. have to be present. Right now players just try to go to point A to point B without any purpose. Half court game is good, just needs a lot more present in order to look like real basketball.
Having great off ball movement animations increase the realism of the game
Continue to smooth out ALL player animations
Better player celebrations after baskets. Maybe include custom celebrations similar to the NHL series
Each player has to have a custom game
The reason why 2K is good at what it is, each should player have moves that has been motion capped. Each player needs to be different, Live 14 had 50 players with signature skill, got to up that number by A LOT. Players that have signature skills are much easier to use, and their timing is a lot easier also.
Paint defense is horrible
Reduce strides in the paint
Allow players to turn around faster to protect paint
Hard fouls, hard collision animations (rag doll tech from NHL series)
Better collision animations in general.
It feels like there’s a force field at time when trying to grab rebounds simultaneously
Allow players to spin defenders to try to steal a rebound, you seem stuck while being boxed out
Weight should matter, Point Guards shouldn’t be able to bulldoze over centers
Having players trip over feet in the paint, adds realism, loose ball fouls
Take out that one unrealistic one handed rebound*
Mid-Range game improvements, too many blocks in that area
Improve rebounding logic
Sometimes players stand around and look at rebounds
Cameras should have customized options. We should be able to zoom in and out as we prefer.
The ESPN camera bounces up and down, no real NBA camera does that.
The current cameras follow the ball too much
Have more options overall, if not, allow us to customize our own camera view
Crowd chant timing, try to make the crowd more active especially at the end of games. Sometimes i’d hit a game winner at home and nobody cheers
Gameplay Sliders + Game Options
CPU tendencies, inside/outside game, will create balance, CPU probably won’t have 70 points in the paint if we are able to tweak
Game Speed Sliders
Able to turn hot and cold streaks off from Synergy, and just use player tendencies
Able to save our own rosters, bring back locker room features so we can share files
Have a Personal Custom Zone
Abilities to save our own rosters and overall game customizations
Create a player mode, custom teams
