NBA Live 15 Wishlist

NBA Live 15 Wishlist

Welcome to our official Wishlist thread for NBA Live 15! In this thread, we're compiling constructive feedback for the NBA Live Development Team, based on what we want to see in NBA Live 15. Having talked to a couple of the developers about the Wishlist, we're changing up the format a little this time around, so that we can provide them with the best, most useful and most comprehensive feedback possible.

Important Notes

Please keep this stuff in mind as you're posting your ideas!

  • Post your top ten wishes/suggestions for the game, ie. the ten most important things that NBA Live 15 needs to do/add/improve upon. If you have a couple of extra points, that's fine, but no more than 15.

  • Elaborate and post details where necessary. Don't write an essay, but saying things like "better gameplay" doesn't give enough feedback either. Mention specific issues, along with relevant improvements and fixes you want to see. A few sentences or subpoints are fine and will add clarification.

  • Be constructive! No insults, flaming or bashing in this thread. If you're not interested in providing feedback, move along. If you want to vent about NBA Live 14, please do so in one of the impressions threads (or feel free to create a new one); again, this thread is for constructive feedback only. You don't need to sugarcoat things or hold back on talking about stuff that needs to be fixed, just don't be abusive.

That's about it. Feel free to start posting your ideas and if you have any further questions, just ask. The development team will be keeping tabs on this thread and we'll also be passing feedback on to them directly.

Sliders & Roster Customization (with Live 09/10 global edits/Create a player/etc).

Bring back the shootaround gym on initial startup and during load times just like Live 06-10 on PS360. Maybe even add local/online mini-games to it or something, just as a break from the regular gameplay.

Improve immersion in Dynasty mode by allowing the user to go more in depth with player roles, chemistry, personalities, etc. Add options to get fired and move to a different team. Bring in NBA D League for a farm system. Allow for custom draft classes, start a dynasty with a completely generated player league, and let the user add legendary players to teams in the beginning or have a chance to show up in draft classes.

Show what is getting changed with each Synergy update, like the DNA screens in Live 10 or a simple graph screen.

Allow your Rising Star player to be in Ultimate Team.

Add legends to play now modes, not just behind a UT unlock. Decade teams are nice, but let the user put them on current rosters as well.

Unlockables/Cheat Codes. Live 14 is based too much around UT, maybe have unlockable retro courts for play now/UT, or unlockable uniforms/shoes/legends. Cheat codes can be simple things like the NBA Jam OFE filters over the screen, the old Live Isometric camera, ABA/All Star balls, big head?, players wearing warmups on the court?, mascot mode? Just some fun things, be a video game.

In game, add detailed camera customization options and a lot more people on the baseline to crowd it up like real NBA games. I rarely see any open areas when watching NBA games, so try to fill those areas with security or other people. Also, add some variation to the crowd positions, its weird seeing everyone lined up perfectly in their seats.

Some kind of shot release indicator, show if a player is hot/cold, and some indicator if a team is on a roll/momentum. Also this - viewtopic.php?f=131&t=92436 (a spot on the floor showing the ideal shot location based on situation and positioning using Synergy)

In replays, add viscosity to the cameras so it doesn't track the ball 1:1, smooth it out.

And my ultimate wishlist is to have a Blacktop/Park mode from 2K in Live 15 but with the NBA Street Homecourt courts. No need for over-the-top animations or gameplay changes, just let me go 1v1-5v5 on a streetcourt :mrgreen:

This is my wishlist for NBA Live 15, 1-10 in no particular order.
1. The Synergy updates to actually work as advertised.
2. Customized rosters and to be able to use them in all game modes
3. Add another announce team and a sideline reporter, preferably Mike Tirico, Hubie Brown, and Lisa Salters to go along with the current announce team
4. Have a studio show just like College Hoops 2K8 with pregame, halftime, and postgame show and a weekly wrap-up show
5. Playoff mode, like I always say, ALL SPORTS GAMES SHOULD HAVE A PLAYOFF OR TOURNAMENT MODE
6. Regular season, playoff, and finals atmosphere. As we know, playoff and finals crowds are more pumped up than regular season. Have some chants too like Beat L.A. for example.
7. Graphics and animations as good if not better than NBA 2K14. Update every arena in the game exactly how it looks now, no more generic arenas
8. All Star weekend mode. All the events from Rising Stars to the All Star Game itself and include it in the Francise and My Player mode also
9. Story mode just like Fight Night Champion, not to replace any current game modes, but just a new game mode. It can be centered around a rookie, a superstar, or a veteran
10. NBA Street mode with all the courts from the old games and bring back Bobito Garcia. Also you decide how you want to play, simulation or NBA Street style

1. Game play: Hustle plays like diving for loose balls or out of bounds. Add more Contact layup animations,and under basket layups/ dunks. rebound animations, running, jumping and catching animations. Also hop step, spin, and euro step layups have contact so you can stop them more effectively. Make the steal button the intercept pass button too. Also finals regular season and playoff atmosphere. Add more camera angles especially the 2k camera angle on 2k as well as customizing them. Fix spin move cheese by having the ball be deflected if you spin wrong way or into defender.Remove out of bounds force field. Fix end of game situation AI like when down 1 try and get a play for a 2 and not just stand and wait until the clock runs out. Add shot feed back for jump shots and free throws. Also when ball is in bounded there is a delay when you first dribble. When you make a move in the post like a hop step there is a delay to shoot after it. Shots get blocked by elbows and heads and occur too often and the sound when you block the shot is not realistic. Cpu does not call time outs and their are no in game injuries. utilize right stick for shooting so more 2k people will convert.
2. Ultimate team: a market place and a salary for your players and al salary cap so teams are not too good.
3. Dynasty mode should be more in depth like pricing for merchandise and food, revenue, team goals, ect
4.Online: a crew type mode to play with your rising stars online. Fix lag
5. All star weekend: (rising star game, all star game, dunk contest, three point contest, skills challenge, shooting stars.)
6. Presentation: More enthusiastic commentary and more talk about players so there is no long pauses and more crazy van gundy phrases. Add sideline reporter. More more stat overlays.
8. Graphics:Better player models (not everyone is super defined in real life). More variance in skin tones. Do head scans. Accessories are too bulky and color is different from uniform,
9. Add game play sliders and the ability to edit rosters, and save them, and create a player outside of rising star. Add something like 2k share to share rosters draft classes ect.
10. Rising star: No more preset faces, Be able to choose skin tone, facial hair, and hair. (headband should not be only for bald people). Be able to choose jump shot, free throw, fadeaway, post fades, dunk packages, sig moves ect. Also add something like talk to gm from 2k13 to ask for trades, get coach/players off team. Add endorsements, press conferences and rivalry games where you get double rsp. Also be able to buy clothes for rising star. add multiplier to rsp if you play on higher difficulty. Add off the court situations where your decisions affect you like partying but then you are late for practice. Be able to get injured. Add in game obgectives. Make scoring system based on grades and dont penalize for missing shots. Reward good shot selection, ball movement, good passes, assists, blocks, good defense ect. Penalize turnovers, allowing offensive rebound by your man, bad defense, not getting baxk in transition.

3. Add more signature freethrows, jumpshots, floaters, and more varied crossover, hesitation, spin move packagesso people who don't have sig moves dont have the same basic crossovers.

5. Take off the power passing from FIFA

1. Body contact in paint.
2. Shadows/better job mimicking gravity on the court so it doesn't look like they're floating going up&down court.
3. Larger steps. They move their legs like mice in 14. Shouldn't take 8 steps to turn the corner on someone. Shouldn't take 20 steps getting to the rim on a break with Rose and Westbrook.
4. Realistic dunks. You never--rarely if ever--saw anyone do that one legged windmill, windmilling off the same side they jumped off in the nba. And personally, a much simpler, realistic version would look and feel so much better.
5. Layups off the glass.
6. Better on ball defense. Shouldn't be able to perform dribble moves out the ass with a defender right on your grill. At least let the ball come loose.
7. More variety of jump shots.
8. More fluid jumpshots. Couple of years behind right here.
9. Bump charging fouls up about a tiny few 83 percents.(In the paint specifically)

10. Every nba live player is a Dleague-er. No one's ever ready to catch and shoot, they come off curls with their backs to the basket, they allow their man to spin off and dunk on them in the post every other play without bodying him up. Throw soft passes. Hitch in their jumpshots. Can't make a sharp, simple one dribble pull-up. They don't hustle. They give up continuations willfully. Allow pg's to bang on them.
So yeh, my 10th wish is a damn complaint.

haha, just realized I'm allowed 15.
11. Stop the update after the hour madness. We all knew it wasn't going to work, and it didn't.
12. Put back every single edit option that was taken out UNJUSTLY.
13. Get better rim sounds, better net sounds, better backboard sounds, better squeak sounds, add some fouling sounds, boost PA guy, then get better PA sounds.
14. If it in anyway hinders the rest of the game, reduce the half time show. It's too long anyway, and very generic. It's cool, but not all necessary.
15. Go back to TWO shooting options.
Circle-jump shot/hookshot/floater. More avoiding contact.
Square-layup/dunk/floater(2)/fingerroll. More forcing contact.

Online suggestions

1. Ability for guests accounts so multiple people on one console can play online.

2. Reduce lag

3. Team play

4. Online leagues

5. Online franchise

General
1. More contact in the paint

2. More offensive and defensive animations for the paint

3. CPU being more decisive off dribble moves. CPU won't take advantage of the angles they create and punish people for bad D.

4. CPU shot clock violations and end of quarter AI

5. Out of bounds plays

6. Shoot around gym at load screen and before game starts.

7. More use of the glass and rim interactions.

8. More use of PA announcer and sounds from the court prospective.

Or allow second player to sign into their account like in Call of Duty to allow them to level up/ gain points, etc.

Live should bring back "user stats" as well. It would be really interesting to compare your stats vs your friends

Keep the power passing and lead passing just teach people how to do it
Be able to choose sets like 3 out 2 in or 4 out 1 in for spread 4s
When people come off screens they should catch and turn simultaneously so they can shoot before defender comes
Contact dunks
When post player are fronted and they get the ball they should not turn away from the basket they should go towards it since that is the direction they are facing
Be able to choose what hand you finish with by stick direction
Bring the hangar and the espy screen to watch espn on the game and a ticket at the bottom for nba news
Dribble pull-ups should be based off a player normal shooting release and form as well as step backs
Send me a copy of live 14 because these are based on demo

1. Better animations, WAY better graphics, the gameplay needs to be more robust and responsive (there were times that it was not) make use of the IGNITE engine as promised.
2. Give those who do not want to play Ultimate Team a way to get those secret items and players.
3. Scrap the NBA Live 13 engine. It was not a good look for next-gen.
4. Street mode, practice arenas (ala Live 09/10) and bring back the dunk and 3 point contest.
5. NBA Live 95 mode. It is the 20th anniversary.
6. For the rising star mode, add scenarios depending on the decision the player makes. Yeah, include the NBDL as well.
7. WNBA! Why hasn't Live added this yet?!
8. International play. Bring the FIBA mode back.
9. Audio has to improve. The music was great, the commentary needs variation from time to time.
10. I liked NBA Live 14, but for the last time: bring it into the NEXT GENERATION! If FIFA, and MADDEN look and feel great the PS4 and XB-ONE, why not NBA Live? This year, pull no punches. Bring everything out. Come out swinging!

Thank you

Postby Mr LostSoul on Wed Mar 26, 2014 10:11 pm

This one is on the more shallow/fun side.

1. Freestyle superstars - ala live 06:
Playmaker(thread needle), highflyer(oops/height), power(power), set-shot, lay-up scorer/fade-away scorer/post scorer... Outside/inside stopper, charge-taker. I know people thought them overpowered, but it also added an individuality. And it doesn't need to be its own system, but the animations need to be in. These tiers of play styles players should have automatically.

2. To this day, live 06(ps2) has had the most contact mid-air collisions. Do that, but make more.
3. Tutorials - just makes sense. Made it feel like so much was in the game in those live 06 tutorials with the voice overs. They'd be like 2-4 minutes long, and have every aspect of the game controls in them and shown in play.
4. more on skills - have a certain "skill" where a player can get the crowd going by their success. Cheering and awing.
5. Rougher on ball D. I want the reward of shaking and blowing by a tough defender, of hitting the tough shot over one who stays in the play, having to step-back--not to be fancy but because I have to to get a decent shot off.
6. Live 06's triple threat game(ps2). low swingthru, shield ball behind, step-thru, jabs, overhead.
7. Post/driving pumpfakes -- side to the defender, that can be quick and repeated or full and long depending on how fast you tap the button.
8. Shots taken depending on your facing to the basket. If facing away from the basket and I wanna shoot it, let that shot be a 180/90 ect. fade away. If i'm not perfectly facing the basket and shoot it, let that shot be what it is. A pull-up. Just don't put it where the player has to line his feet up to shoot every time. Looks dumb, and it's not realistic. Have that be a factor in how to get a "perfect shot", have it show up in practice that it reduces shot percentage--unless they're scorers.
9. Directional fading.
10. A rebound mechanic.
11. Mid-air change dunk/lay-up into a directional lay-up.
12. Hop step -- Live 06. If done in front of a defender the defender doesn't scoot out the way, the hopstepper hops into an occupied spot and loses balance. Turnover/charge/steal/block/no call.

13. ^^ That's how the contact in-paint should be. It's on the list TWICE. Some sort of system like that is needed. Get rid of the slide-you-out-the-way-for-this-bucket-bruh game mentality. This is the most pissing off thing ever created in a basketball game ever. If they're gonna move me out the way, ****, I wanna see my player get knocked out, I wanna see the impact on the face when they take that hit so I can justify my anger and take it out on that player by subbing him out for being a ***** and not playing on. Get rid of the ghost-slides. I don't know what to do when that happens. I look at the replays and it's just there. God is just there. He doesn't want me to affect the shot.
14. Change the pass stealing. Its been outdated. The window for it is very screwy, it's never a definite thing no matter your position. If there was ever something to take from your competitor, this is what it should be.

Postby Andrew on Thu Mar 27, 2014 9:14 pm

I realised I hadn't posted my list yet, so here goes:

  • Add gameplay sliders to adjust frequencies, percentages, etc. Allowing users to adjust elements such as game speed, frequency of blocks on the perimeter, etc can go a long way in fixing individual complaints and helping to tailor the gameplay experience according to personal preference.

  • Allow the speed of the accelerated clock to be adjusted, perhaps with a couple of faster and slower speed settings.

  • Tone down the frequency of the user losing the ball on pump fakes (or allow it to be controlled by gameplay sliders).

  • Add some kind of visual aid in the player indicator to represent a perfect release window on jumpshots and free throws (such as the flash utilised in NBA 2K). Additional on-screen feedback (if toggled on) indicating the quality of the shot and release timing would be good as well.

    In fact, if at all possible, implement a more sophisticated method of shooting free throws that gives us more control over the shot (like the T-Meter did back in the day). NBA Elite 11’s method of shooting didn’t work for jumpshots, but actually wasn’t bad for free throws, if that’s still feasible.

  • Keep the current control scheme – I really prefer it to any other control scheme in a basketball video game – but expand upon the controls a little. Specifically, bring back the old Freestyle Air controls (i.e. the ability to manually attempt a tip-in, put-back dunk or grab the offensive rebound) and the ability to fake a pass.

  • Improve control responsiveness and fluidity. Even after the official patch, there was some stiffness to NBA Live 14.

  • Improve animations for a more realistic looking game, with better transitions between animations, along with better aesthetics for a truly “next gen” look. Add new animations, particularly a wider variety of dunks and layups.

  • Continue to enhance Dynasty Mode, to make it a deeper experience. Some specific suggestions include:

    • Continue to tweak simulated stats for as much accuracy as possible
    • Bring back Edit Player menu, so that we can assign accessories and new jersey numbers when we acquire players
    • Allow scouting of players throughout the season, as in older games
    • Allow us to view a complete list of the season’s transactions
    • More stats screens, including advanced stats
    • Add All-Star voting
    • Add 10 day contracts and contract extensions
    • Allow users to change teams between seasons and control multiple teams
    • Allow five-on-five scrimmages with your team at any time, for practice
    • Bring back development drills for training players
    • Add the ability to hire and fire head coaches
    • Feedback from other teams indicating why they don't agree to a trade
    • Ability to confirm/cancel a trade that's been agreed to.
    • Keep the rotation screen that was added in NBA Live 14...it works perfectly and it's what we were waiting for!

  • Continue to enhance Rising Star, with immersive features such as endorsements, fake social media, team scrimmages and development drills. Personally, I’d like to see it fleshed out in the vein of NBA 2K’s MyCAREER on the last generation; I’m not a fan of the linear, storyline-driven approach 2K has taken on next gen.

  • Allow customisation of rosters, with local saves in case we want to start a Dynasty game with opening night rosters or a custom roster of our choosing. It would also be great if we could easily upload and share custom rosters with other users. Creation tools/modes I’d like to see include:

    • Create-a-Player
    • Edit Player
    • Trades/Free Agency (so that we can make moves ourselves ahead of the official roster updates)
    • Custom Teams
    • Playbook/Coach Profile Editing (as seen in NBA Live 14)

  • Expand Shootaround/Practice mode. Allow five-on-five scrimmages and quick switching of players in single player shootarounds. The ability to practice plays and free throws would also be very handy.

  • Utilise Legends outside of Ultimate Team, such as the All-Decade teams from previous NBA Live games. If deals can be reached to expand the roster of Legends, that would be fantastic.

  • Bring back single season and standalone Playoffs mode (particularly the latter). Keep features like Ultimate Team, LIVE Season and BIG Moments; great concepts that compliment traditional features like Dynasty Mode very well.

  • Bring back All-Star Weekend mode, and integrate it into Dynasty Mode and Rising Star. While innovation would be appreciated, the way it was implemented before was certainly fun and more than serviceable.

  • PC Release! There’s a dedicated PC gaming community that would definitely check out a new NBA Live game. We’ve been waiting since NBA Live 08. ;)

Keep it coming, everyone!

- Make online trophies/achievements not count to the Platinum/100%

Firstly, when hardly anyone buys and plays the game to start with, it makes it tough for people wanting to get the Platinum.

Secondly, when the online connection sucks so bad (think pressing the shoot button and seeing it happen a second later...), you are kidding to expect people to get every online trophy just to complete the game.

1. Make defense a physically visual thing. On-ball and off. Let's see hands moving, waists contorting, feet being more immediate, ramp up the court squeaks just to add to this.

2. Make fade-aways a factor again, players can make them. No player is going to/can shoot straight up and down with a defender right on them. Unless you got a playmaker/plays creating open looks, you're going to see tons of fading and off-balanced shots. Almost every isolation/drive never ends in a set-shot. One of the few things I liked about ELITE is that if you pressure the offense it forced them to fade on their shot.
Put all the shot types in the game. Lean left or right, this angle or that angle, straight back fade, forward leaning and all those angles. Bring the fun back in getting off a shot.

3. Combine the above with having to manually square your feet for the best percentage shot, otherwise the shot will go up however you're planted, and you're on your way to more fluid and realistic looking and playing ball.

4. Revolution idea for layups/(floater) and dunks:
Let's say you have to hold down the shot button--the longer you hold it down the longer you put off releasing the finish. And while you're holding it down, and as you enter flight, you control what hand/direction/motion you finish with with the left analogue. So you manually control your whoopty-doos, pumps, Dr.J's, circus shots, manually avoiding the shot blocker. You can release it quick, or hold it and release it as you're coming back to earth--which could end up being reverse finishes on the other side of the basket.

In the same way for dunks, holding turbo, you manually control the hand/directions pumps, cockbacks, windmill motions alike, all depending on that players abilities--vert and style. The penalty being: if you hold too long or release too early, you might get hung, or blow it off the back iron. I mean, couldn't you picture capitalizing on a game on a breakaway and doing your own windmill? Your own tomahawk? Trying to make them look as full motioned as possible?
Or tie trick dunks entirely to their own and leave the above just for avoidance. For breakaway dunks tie them in with the gather, press the gather, then try to dunk. Twirl on during the gather for spins, direct in air for the dunk. Done. Eliminated unrealistic dunks in traffic(for the most part) while keeping them in the game.

5. Right analogue celebrations possible after made baskets and dead balls.
6. Put in unlockables, secret gyms, unlockable shoes, accessories, dribble moves, Unique crowds who stand till a bucket, or hijack the pbp commentary with their noise and chants, unlock mvp chants, boos and anti chants, plus other weird, cool, bonus, creative side rewards just to help the game's lifespan.
7. I also say screw the my=player counter. Make a legacy mode with real players.
8. Challenge modes: 1v1, 21--1v1v1, HORSE, Dunk/finish on these defenders(with Nm.4 idea in place)--Something similar to the days of Madden challenges, and you have to get the gold.
9. X=generic pass / X(hold)=soft lob / X+turbo=bullet passes. / X(double tap)=bounce / X(tap any other button before pass releases)=fake.
Keep the passing on one button, that other button can be put to great use.
10. Contact initiated moves.

If I can sneak a sixteenth point into my list, I forgot to mention in-game injuries. I'd like to see them return as they obviously add an extra challenge and sense of realism to the game. Also, not only does it enhance gameplay, it naturally adds an extra dimension to Dynasty Mode as you're left to deal with injuries that put players out of action and adjust your lineup accordingly. Injuries are present in NBA Live 14's Dynasty Mode as they can occur during simulation, but it'd be great to have them back in gameplay as well.

Some things I think could go a long way, from past games.

1. Player introductions in Dynasty mode, from signings, waives and trades. (Live 04)
2. Player introductions before the start of the game, not just the key, home court player in the playoffs.
3. Player/Team options in Dynasty mode.
4. True to life player personalities. This blew me away how 2K integrated it.
5. A story line to Rising Star. Maybe starting from the blacktop, to D-League, to NBA. Or the draft, a choice.
6. Shoot around for ultimate team, Rising Star and the startup of the game (team courts). Live 08 esque.
7. More customization for Rising Star. Facial hair, face customization. Live 10 did well.
Sub note: All hair (excluding arm, leg) should have adjustable length. Along with calf size, shoe size, wingspan etc.
8. Bring back 1v1 (2v2 etc) pickup games. Bring back gym, or street court choice. (Live 04)
9. Pregame and week wrapup show. As someone else pointed out, I believe it was from College hoops 2K.
10. Custom rosters. This would go a long way. From correcting gear to making a player like Justin Hamilton (Heat).

And because I can't leave this out.

11. Legendary teams and legends pool (<< live 04). Not just teams like the 95 Bulls. But the 02 Lakers, 00 Sixers, 03 Pacers etc.

12. And one last thing. Shoot around for everyone. FAs, Legends, Historic teams etc.

NBA Live 15 Suggestions (Presentation)


(NBA Live Commentary Concerns)

The commentary in NBA Live 14 is subpar to say the least once you get about a minute into the game they stop actually talking about the players at all it’s so monotone. The commentary is extremely generic there will be a lot of quiet stretches. It’s annoying actually if I have to hear passes the ball, dribbling it down the court multiple times in a row.


(NBA Live 15 Commentary Suggestions)

Make commentary sound as organic as possible with natural sounding conversation, anecdotes and reactions to the current game situation as well as the current and recent seasons in Dynasty. Have the commentators react with appropriate excitement and play off one another as in real life. There should be more variance and a sense of improvisation. Each color analyst should fully contribute their unique insight on trends within the game. It would be cool to have the ESPN commentators face scanned into the game. The commentary should have little to no timegaps, as well as little repetition of lines. I want NBA Lives commentary to be very solid since NBA 2Ks commentary is very impressive and stellar. NBA Live 15 needs authentic ESPN Commentary that sounds like a actual NBA broadcast game. It would be cool if Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy could be in the booth talking in the actual game.

Some things that I think Live needs to do in order to become successful.

-Specific Arena announcers from all 30 teams

-Specific Arena music from all 30 teams

-Updated commentary with no time gaps and actual real voices

-Better Halftime show(Add the full NBA Countdown roundtable)

-Quicker Player and ball movement

-Updated Crowd animations

-And last but not least is there anyway to make Mike Breen and JVG sound like the actual Mike Breen and JVG on Espn instead of a Amateur Commentator with a dull monotone voice.

-Players and coaches need to be scanned badly.

-Pregame Introductions(Like player introductions)

-Player & Coach Interviews

-How about actually seeing JVG and MB talk during Halftime with the roundtable

Postby Mr LostSoul on Thu Apr 17, 2014 6:32 pm

I'm trying not to rehash any. If you're going for simulation.

1. In the paint you should have more contact body-body based animations and shots than not. Severely reduce dunks. And over-flooding with in-paint reasonable contact would cover up the fact that blocking shots in Live is a miss more than hit.
2. Lessen freebies. If someone's got a open lane, have players hack them intentionally.
3. More offensive fouls. To create more presence of the bodies, and also to add more reason to stop-n-pops. Why stop n pop if I know I can dunk on you, slide you out the way, knock you over and never get called for it with Raymond Felton and Iverson? (Live 14 logic)
4. Euro charges/hop charges. Baiting and then hopping to the spot. Big men and all alike take more charges these days anyway.
5. More seal ups. Players waiting offball for screens, plays and whatnot. More sealing pass catches. Overall just more Defender Offensive interaction all across the board.
6. Don't foul a jumpshooter. Bring back the bait for those jumping too soon/players who's momentum over carries. Make some offensive fouls in those situations: fading leg kickouts, over-leaning in.

7. If you're not causing the offensive player to take off-balanced shots, to stumble, then it's more often-than-not bad defense. Like a story, they say "show don't tell". Show us the shots being affected. Is he double clutching? leaning? Did he slip? put more arc on the shot? throw a line drive? waved the ball around his head first, switched hands, fall backward and is slow to get up?
8. Smoother(not longer. least not too much longer) transitions of animations.
9. Does it kill Jeff and Breen to yell? To put some emphasis in their voices? They sound so phony in the game.
10. As always, the crowd. If Jeff/Breen can't yell, let the crowd yell, let the PA yell. You got reg season atmosphere, playoffs. But add in some clutch atmosphere, some 4th quarter atmosphere, some rivalry atmosphere. Nothing kills the mood more than a big bucket going unnoticed and being under appreciated by the game presentation.

11. small stuff. Rim sound. Get rid of the crunch dunks. Give us those lingering bang, ding sounds. Give us those soccer kick sounds on some jumpshots that back-rim down in.
12. Net sounds. Give us some hard ripping shots.
13. The camera zoom-out. On big shots. Aka 4th quarter. When the camera zooms in when the shot's taken, then when it goes in it pans out wide to show the crowd. Espn.
14. POP plays. Crowd popping plays that goes from them sitting down to both hands up standing. Just watch a kobe bryant clutch shot mix. Big time blocks. Big time steals. Them plays and crowd reactions that make you think Stone Cold just came in the building.

(edit: april 23) 15. Aside of standard edit accessories, how sick would it be to customize your courts and adjust certain codes, dress codes, chants, and actions for the fans during your season. Ala nba street vol3, I believe. And/or let us change stuff like baseline colors based on previous versions of the courts history. Or put in unlockable versions of those older courts.
Bring back the parks and random gyms. They've been gone for too long.

A couple of noteworthy bugs that need to be addressed, along with some minor suggestions:


  • As far as playcalling and strategy goes, Synergy and the coaching profiles work well most of the time. However, the AI is prone to lapses where the CPU will just get the ball in the paint and stand there not making a move, leading to a three second violation. Shot clock violations also sometimes occur in this manner where a player will dribble out 15 seconds of the shot clock to a violation when they're trapped or the player otherwise breaks down. Basically, some AI lapses like that need to be cleaned up.

  • I'm still getting the pass-back issue whenever I'm in a player-locked mode, so that's a bug that needs to be addressed. It seems to happen mostly on lead passes; if you're in the frontcourt and call for a pass from someone in the backcourt, you're getting stuck in an automatic pass-back situation pretty much every time. Something else that needs to be fixed for next year.

  • A couple of suggestions for BIG Moments: allow the user to toggle the accelerated clock on and off, as some challenges should at least have the option of being played out in real time for them to be fair. Likewise, I'd suggest that any combination challenge where you need to get points and assists should not be player-locked, as your CPU teammates do have a tendency to let you down on getting those assists.

My Wishlist for NBA Live 15:

1. Have more varieties of signature moves like crossovers, spin moves.
2. Have varieties of sponsors for each game in the Season and Playoffs like ESPN, TNT, CSN, Fox Sports, NBA TV, etc.
3. Better and more realistic animations for players.
4. Better graphics and effects (e.g. logos, overlays, balls, crowd, players, sideline characters, referees, environment).
5. Realistic pre-game intros and tipoffs for all teams.
6. Realistic crowd, player and bench emotion and intensity in close games.
7. Put dramatic effects to the player making an off-balance shot.
8. MAKE A PC VERSION FOR ALL OF OUR SAKE!

Thank you for your considerations. :D :roll:

I really like where NBA Live 14 is headed with the gameplay, the engine, the new patch and colllison detection, 2k sim like game controls, lots of cool user modes and everything, plus it's servers work! So if Live 15 utilizes everything it's learned from this year and adjusting things and adding modes and gameplay styles... EA you guys are doing it RIGHT.

And I have played NBA2k since 2k10, though i did own Live 10 (I enjoyed both game styles though Live 10 was too arcadelike online was stupid playing 5 on 5 because a guy could just ballhog with anyone decent, let alone legit, and use cheeser moves. But a big part of that was the inability to play defense, which NBA Live 14 has really taken over lately with the last patch. I feel like the defense is maybe even better and more fluid and as realistic as 2k14 (not graphics; who has also become money hungry with VC and certain game modes; it's ok to an extent for My Team but to play regular blacktop mode by yourself, or with a friend over at the house, all the top 50 NBA players cost more VC just to use... don't become them). 2k is slightly overrated this year as not only was it full of online/server issues but they had less modes, as well as the defense taking a step back from the 360 version of the games defense. But it is the NBA so perfect offense usually will win. Anyway, I just wanted to summarize I am extremely familiar with Live and 2k (and the NBA), a result of playing Live 95 on SNES, Live 2003-2006 Xbox, Live 08-10 Xbox 360, Played the ELITE 11 (or 12) Demo on the PS3, I knew it was raw but even then I could tell you were starting back at the right spot.

Now you have a beautiful game engine that is able to be updated via roster upgrades and nigthly/weekly patches that integrate perfectly.

FOR NBA LIVE 15 to BE THE NBA GAME I BUY AND PLAY OVER 2K:

NBA LIVE 15 ONLINE MODES

-Quick Match (Private Locker too; ability to invite friends to party and game or crews, etc)
Online Leagues (We all like having both ASSOCIATION ONLINE like Live14 but also ability to create leagues with fantasy drafts and 30 user controlled teams)
-Run a Franchise/Dynasty/GM/Owner ONLINE (like Assoc Online)
-QUICK MATCH TEAM UP
- (you auto connect to 9 others, 4 minimum, and each play as certain player on a current NBA team roster)
USE YOUR RISING STAR ONLINE (with his rating, position,and stats)
-CREWS/LEAGUES:

-Ability to start/create an online EA Sports Crew/Team for the ultimate Online gaming experience! CREWS AND LEAGUES ARE what make a game flourish and have lasting appeal for NBA Games, along with great online modes and crew/teams/teamup. After we spend a solid month playing the game hardcore (or even 2-3 if their is really that much depth and options), our Rising Star has become legit money,


NBA ULTIMATE TEAM: Play online earning players from different era's, you've implemented it well; just don't go VC crazy lke 2k making it almost necessary to spend money on points/VC for your MyPlayer/GM/MyTeam/BlacktopPlayers and is rediculous. Why have blacktop in the game and not allow you to play online... any modes you guys have off-line try to incorporate online. All-Star Weekend with friends. Leagues like I said, but also tournaments or just a 8 or 16 man playoffs. Or a great online season with 29 other user controlled teams (whether it via League or Online Association like Live14) then allow trades and stuff with the other users, also champions and FURTHERMORE:

-OFFSEASON MODES-
2k Used to have it.... Associations were so fun online when you finished the season with 29 other teams and make the playoffs and finish in the top 8 or so, but then have like ALL CAP SPACE to use in the Free Agency or Re-Signing Other Players. This was always fun and lead to countless 5-10 year seasons I played in 2k13 on 360 (or 2k12...) Simply use what is successful. Each off-season your players get to go to some training camps or whatever, and 50% is based on how well you do with them and 50% of their improvement based on their age/potential.

CONTROLS: I REALLY LIKE THE NEW CONTROLS DRIBBLING AROUND ON NBA LIVE 14. OBVIOUSLY IMPROVE AND ADD MULTIPLE ANIMATIONS FOR EACH TYPE OF MOVE IF NOT TOTALLY UNIQUE TO EACH PLAYER ALMOST. I like the Right Stick as the ISO/Moves stick and LEFT BUMPER as the modifier for doper signature moves with the ball. BUT THE Y HOPSTEP CAN BE COMBINED WITH X/RT (DUNK) RIGHT AFTER EVERY TIME FOR BUCKET OR A DUNK THAT LOOKS RIDICULOUS. THAT"S THE ONLY NOTICABLEY AWFUL/CHEESER/NBAJAM style gaming that needs to be removed; once it's gone I swear you're system and game is nearly perfect. Fix some of the rebounding stuff maybe (and the auto AI offensive boards). I bet some patch work and coding and you guys could have the fixed on Live14 patch.

DEFENSE: It's great in Live14 aside from stopping that hopstep into dunk glitch. AI should be smarter as they seem to be now, but more hustle and awareness from the AI on D. As for on the ball defense, it's pretty dang solid. Maybe add something as a defensive modifier to increase your ability on D or something.... certain players or I duno.


OFFLINE MODES:
PRACTICE ARENA (Practice with friends in Party Mode)
ASSOCIATION/SEASON WE ALWAYS WANT TO MAKE ROSTERS THAT ARE REALISTIC RATINGS AND STUFF AND THAT SIM JUST LIKE REALITY. PLUS THERE IS NO REASON TO LEAVE OUT OFFLINE MODES LIKE 2K HAS. I KNOW EA CAN KEEP TRACK OF GUYS THAT SOMEHOW CHEAT AND MOD THEIR RISING STAR WITH SOME WEIRD HEX STUFF AND YOU WILL BAN THEM (if they figure it out); 2k simple answer to no cheating is you're connected to 2kservers 24/7 on the game, its so annoying and has glitches where 99 Overall Rating My Career Players have been lost).

Xbox & EA PARTY MODE:
-BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH EVERYONE ONLINE IN QUICK MATCHES
-BE ABLE TO SEE ALL YOUR RECENT NBA LIVE15 "RECENT PLAYERS" LISTED
-SIMPLE "PARTY" MODE THAT SYNCS WITH XB1 PARTY AND ALLOWS YOU TO HAVE 10 PLAYERS IN YOUR PARTY; 5 on 5 Private Team Up sounds fun!
(This means being able to privately/party play with just your 10 best friends on the game, whether it's with real NBA teams/players or your Rising Star player, give multiple options)
-EACH TIME SOMEONE JOINS YOUR EA&XB1 PARTY THEY LOAD THEIR RISING STAR INTO THE PRACTICE ARENA (like live 2010) WHERE YOU ALREADY ARE LOADED AND CAN SHOOT AROUND/MESS AROUND. A GREAT ONLINE SYSTEM WOULD BE SO MUCH OF A BLESSING, WITH THE ABILITY TO GATHER 10 GUYS/FRIENDS ON XB/PS AND HAVE THEM TALKING/SHOOTING IN PRACTICE ARENA WHILE YOU SET UP A 5 vs 5 PRIVATE MATCH! That's always a blast!
-Even allow guys to mess around and like initiate stuff in the "PARTY PRACTICE ARENA" allowing them to play 1 on 1 to 11 by 1's and 2's; or play 21 with 3 people; play 2 on 2 half-court to 11 by 1s and 2s; it would all be great while you waited to fill up your 10 man party which allows you to play online NBA games for hours on end each night!

GAME PRACTICE ARENA LIKE NBA LIVE 2010; Loaded game and you could shout-around, with menu above that... Loved it.

FULL GAME/MOVE TUTORIAL

OPTIONS

ROSTERS
-Be Able to edit rosters for us sim freaks offline
-Live is great at having up to date in sync NBA rosters
-Players do need to have a little more complexity to them than in Live14; just 10 or so individual stats were missing, give or take;
-CLASSIC TEAMS ROCK! ALL CLASSIC TEAMS ROCK! 70's LAKERS ROCK! BULLS 93-94 ROCK! BUT SO DOES LIKE EVERY TOP 8 OR SO TEAM FROM EVERY SEASON FEEL CLASSIC TO REAL NBA FANS, HAH. I"D LOVE IF SOMEHOW YOU HAD LIKE 100's of CLASSIC ROSTERS.... you could make indivudual modes out of that.......



_-I KNOW I SAID A LOT.... and I apologize if it sounded negative and not constructive. I just am an avid NBA/Hoops Gamer and after the 2k14 Letdown removing the best modes and the defense being impossible with people hating the My Team mode Domnation Mode being too hard, etc. Online lag prevents anything from working out well aside from Verses traditional style but still has lag. As a 2k player the past 4 years or so, I am totally giving Live15 a chance this year for the first time in awhile; and mostly because of the improvements I've seen made in the game so far. Graphics are important, and you're improving that. But gameplay and 60fps should come first, with little lag and good EA Servers.

Team shoot around in the before games like they did in college basketball 2K. Mike Breen and JVG as commentators, also having Mike Breen saying "Bang" when you hit a big shot, You can play as classic teams including teams from 00-2009

A few presentation suggestions:

  • Add some more camera angles, including more highlight angles (eg slam cam!) and the classic isometric cam.

  • When hiding the overlay in Instant Replay, also hide the focus indicator. Screenshots and replay captures look a lot better without it!

  • Allow the user to change the default player lock camera angle. I believe the official patch was supposed to do this, but for me it still defaults to the Player Lock camera.

Ok, NBA LIVE. This is what you're going to have to do in order to not only make NBA LIVE 15 better than NBA LIVE 14, but to make it the best NBA Video Game Franchise on the planet. Ok, here goes.
-Graphics: What the heck was up with the graphics? No offense, but those were some of the worst graphics I've ever see on a video game. You must improve them. Kobe Bryant needs to look like the real Kobe Bryant, LeBron needs to look like the real LeBron, etcetera. Then you have the crowd graphics. Those weren't so bad, but they could be better. You've got to make the shot graphics look excellent, as well.
-Scoreboard: Ok, the ESPN scoreboard was great. However, you've got to improve that as well. You've got to have the ESPN scoreboards to when they first got improved to this moment, so back to 2010 and as far as late 2014. You've got to have the scoreboards for TNT from 2010 through late 2014. You've got to have the ESPN on ABC scoreboards from 2010 through late 2014, and all the updated local area scoreboards for each team (that will especially be great in Dynasty/Franchise/Association mode(s)). You also have got to have CBS, MSG, CSN, TSN, and NBA TV. That will also help improve the game.
-Soundtrack: Ok, I really like ghetto music (people like Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne, Chief Keef, Future, Trae Tha Truth, YG, etc.). And no songs I like(d) were on the game. Most people who like the NBA like ghetto rap music. Please work on your soundtrack!
-Deeper Dynasty and My Career modes: You have to dig deeper into these modes. In Dynasty, you've got to dig deeper. I would like a game where, maybe in the offseason,you get to choose your location, your Logo/Team name, and even your arena art and fan wear for playoffs. And on My Career, you should have more player options and player decisions. Also, in both modes, you can go to All-Star festivities and you can go to the NBA Draft, in My Career mode, however, you can go to either event as a spectator or an actual attendee (if chosen).
WNBA/FIFA modes. Ok, I have a lot of friends. Half are my fellow boys, and some of them are girls. Some of my girl friends, including my girlfriend, are video gamers. They complain about the NBA video games being too focused on the men. They want women players in the game too. So you should just add a WNBA mode. The WNBA mode should include customizable rosters, settings, even My Career and Dynasty modes. Keep that in mind.
A Backup Game: I don't know why you guys canceled NBA ELITE 11 and 12 or NBA LIVE 13, but those were bad ideas. Remember, I don't like the NBA 2K franchise(s). But for NBA LIVE 15, you need to have a backup game. So I believe that you should bring back the NBA ELITE franchise. I would've bought NBA ELITE 11 and 12, but you guys canceled. If you bring back NBA ELITE, I would definitely buy it. So there should be an NBA LIVE 15 AND NBA ELITE 15. And something I think would make people happy and WANT to buy ELITE is if you sell NBA ELITE 11 and 12 for FREE with NBA ELITE 15. It would be great to have a backup game because if LIVE fails, you can easily come back with another game. Also, it'll put more NBA video game options out there.

Just went back and watched too much live 14 videos. I can say what I dislike about it most, to sum everything that takes away from it for me is the constant reset points. Go one way, pause, and the player resets his body, drive hard into a jumpshot and the player resets his body before taking the shot. Drop step, spin off, and the player resets his body before he's ready to go up.

Everything seems like one giant reset to make up for the lack of transition animations, there aren't any, or soon enough break-away points that helps it look smooth. Said it once already, but it can't be mentioned enough, the game would greatly benefit from leaving it up to the user to choose when and what position they're in to finish their actions. That's how I remember the glory days of Live when "freestyle" was its claim to fame. Because things like a fading, desperate 90' shot and all things alike are missing. And also there's just too much "straight up, straight down"-ness for anything to look authentic.

Here's hoping 15 is less robot-perfect, and more spontaneous-perfect.... Also hoping players come off curls ready to catch and shoot, facing the basket...

My simple but very optimistic wish list:

1. LeBron James on the cover as a #6 Cleveland Cavalier (Making the NBA Live Series beyond mainstream)
2. Bring back the controls and schemes from the once known NBA Elite duo (Elite '11-'12)
3. On par with 2K14's or reveal one of a kind next gen sports graphics for it's 15 installment (Using EA's Ignite game engine to its fullest)

Well that's pretty much my interests towards the next installment. Pretty simple huh?! lmao

As I just mentioned in the Bugs thread, occasionally a player with pick up a sixth foul in a BIG Moments game, but remain on the floor. Not every time though, quite often that rule is represented properly, but when it does happen, it's usually the CPU getting to keep a player in the game. Something to look out for in NBA Live 15, as I'm hoping BIG Moments will return this year. ;)

NBA Live needs a balanced medium with animations while maintaining responsive user control that's a big factor moving forward.

I like everything above just add one thing:
Intervention Simming.
I remember in NBA Live 09, they had a intervention mode for simming, this was a ton of fun, because I didn't have to play blowouts, and I only had to play fun moments of the games. For instance. When a game came down to the 4th Quarter and we were down by 10 or so, I was given the chance to play it, or when it was a close game with 3 minutes left, I could play it. Or if someone was about to break a record or something, I could play it. But that wasn't it, any time during the sim, I could press X and then choose to start playing, or I could just start playing from the start of the game just like normal.
Intervention Simming needs to be added as an option to NBA Live 15.

I like this idea because they already have the moments feature, and that is like intervening in a game.

I said this on OS, but I want to see Spurs-like ball movement in NBA Live 15. As long as the responsiveness is there on both sides, it would be a ton of fun moving the ball around with a constantly rotating help defense.

1. Make changes in Dynasty mode (in NBA Live 14 mode compared to Live 05 has not changed ☹): more slots for Trades (at least 4-5), the opportunity to return to the same screen to see laureates of the season: All-Star, All-Star Defense, All-Star Rookie Team with the statistics of the players on the same screen, the opportunity to earn in-game currency in Dynasty mode (but: NO cheats for money / virtual currency).
2. Add All-Star Mode: 3-point & slam dunk contest, All-Star & All-Star Rookie Game, perhaps even Tako Bell Skill Challenge, Celebrity Game etc.
3. Fouls Auto AI (Player & AI of Team) at the end of four quarters: at a certain difference in the score (e.g. 4+ points).
4. Improve putting the ball (realism): by default the first recipient pass not only PG, but SG, SF in reality (such as LeBron, Kobe etc.).
5. Return national teams: Spain, USA, China, Russia, France, Germany etc.
6. Return Legends in offline mode: from All-Star "50s to All-Star "00-ies.
7. Updates soundtrack of the game: in the course of season to add new tracks to the track list.
8. Add Match Report during the game (supposedly from team coaches): what areas to cover, to replace a player, what schemes to use in the attack etc.
9. Variegate logic substitutions: AI chooses a running/shooter composition, composition of experienced players during the game and in front of her.
10. Timely update rosters and players' rankings: trade in the game no later than 2-3 hours interval from the trade real NBA, team signed free agent, which is not in the database (e.g. from Europe) for 1-2 days to create a model to add to the game player, a role player scored 20 points per game - add 1-2 points to the rating (as in a series of FIFA, where the system is already running), star struck 1-10 - rating downgrade etc.

Here is my wish list for NBA Live 15

1) Multiplayer Dynasty- I think this should be in the game. It's nice to be able to do this with friends and stuff
2) Draft List- If you want to get one step ahead of 2K, offer something cool that they don't. What is a draft list you may ask? A Draft List is the list from year one to your current year in the dynasty mode. With the draft list you get to see what teams drafted what players, their position (C, PF, SF, SG or PG), their height, weight, college, what player they are compared to, and their play style. What would anyone think about this? I think it would be great to have in this game. Also a square is put around a player who has been an all star, for somewhat of an example you can look at this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_NBA_draft from Wikipedia.
3) In game saves- You can play part of a game, and then come back to it later and play the rest of it. 2K does this and I think Live should too.
4) Better graphics. I thought the graphics were ok, but could have been better.
5) Mini Games- Horse, Around the World, Nickels and Dimes, 21. Just something fun to add to this series.
6) Highlights of the - Month, Week, Season would be interesting to see. For examples best NBA Blocks of the Month, NBA Dunks of the Month, NBA Best Passes of the Month
7) More than 15 players on the team- Having more than 15 players on the team, but have to limit your roster to 5 starters, 7 bench players and 3 injury reserves
8) Summer League- Play your young players in the summer league, or of course you can turn off this option.
9) Amnesty Player- I see that you have players in the NBA that can be amnestied. I'd like to see this in the game.

To play off your number 6 wish, they could use community highlights and use them for the highlights. Why usecommunity highlights? Because the developers would have to program in scenarios then load them up for you to view them. Streaming in video would he a bit easier provided a fast enough internet connection.

The #1 thing i hope they fix is the game play (besides everything else) but the one thing i would love in this game will be a team shoot around before you start a game. Like in College Basketball demo you had a lay up line before you can start the game but hopefully you and your team mates shoot around before you begin the game.

Something like this. pre game shootaround

I would really like to see a Combine. Instead of giving us random stats in Rising Star we should do a Combine. The combine should allow us to choose a shooting form, and teach us the game. I don't know what type of drills should be included in the combine but they should differ if you have a guard, forward or center. Maybe we earn Experience points for the drills we complete. Then when we play that first game our play won't have a low overall compared to the other rookies in the game. It would be something different than 2k
