WEEK OF NOV. 10

DEMARCUS COUSINS, SACRAMENTO KINGS C

DERON WILLIAMS, BROOKLYN NETS G
Williams has been productive and, more importantly, healthy so far in 2014-15. He's averaging 19 points and seven assists for the 4-2 Nets.

Bernard King & Jamal Mashburn coming: http://www.easports.com/nba-live/news/2014/lut-legends

Image

BERNARD KING

The four-time NBA All-Star and 1985 Scoring Champion averaged 22.5 PPG in his 14-year career, most notably with the New York Knicks and Washington Bullets. His career was undone by a knee injury suffered at the end of the 1985 season, which caused him to miss about two years during his prime.

JAMAL MASHBURN

Mashburn was one of the game's most versatile scorers after entering the league in 1993. He made an All-Star team in 2003 with the Charlotte Hornets, and averaged 20+ PPG in six different seasons.

So Nando de Colo was out of contracts so I replaced him with James Ennis. After looking at his stats, I noticed that he is the perfect player for this game. He's fast enough to get into the lane, has a nice dunk rating, and his 3 point rating is enough for him to hit open 3s. I took on the Cavs after inserting him in and he scored 41 points in the game :lol:

So the James Ennis domination continues. I played against the "Coming Home" featured team and dominated Lenny Wilkens. Although he did have a nice move where he dribbled the ball through my defender's legs on his way to the basket. :lol:

Dropped 31 points on them in the first quarter and forced 11 turnovers on Wilkens alone.

Is it as bad as in live 14 when you could drop 50 on the legend teams with Dooling just using euro step?

No. Some of the games have a set difficulty that you cannot change. I was stealing the ball every possession it seemed like, figured out it was on rookie. I looked to change it, but it's not possible. I think other challenges have different difficulties.

But, I did just pickup the goat the other week.

Some games aren't easy at all. I had trouble vs the Knicks and Cavs because Irving and melo could not miss from 3. It's crazy how every 3 goes in for the cpu if they even have an inch of space.

I get a lot of steals with Ronnie price whose steal rating must be pretty high. I get at least 4-6 a game with him

Steals need to be turned down a bit in general, though. Again, this is where sliders would definitely help.

I wasn't able to do the Suns and Pacers challenges since I didn't have any of those players but I'm definitely gonna do this Lakers one next. They must have started working on UT pretty early because Ronnie price doesn't qualify as a Laker but luckily I have Marshon Brooks who does

This sounds like 2007 all over again. Keyon Dooling was unstoppable in 2k7 and I would embarrass people with him single-handedly

They're available in random packs...kinda like the good inserts in packs of basketball cards back in the day.

(And probably today, too. I haven't collected any trading cards since the 90s. ;))

I'd say so. I don't think I've received a Legend in anything other than a Gold pack, which stands to reason I suppose.

The packs odds are terrible. Way worse than last year.

I'm not trying to be negative but just speaking the truth. I realized sooner than later that the pack odds in LUT15 were worse compared to LUT14 but I always gave it hope that it would get better especially since I voiced out my displeasure on Twitter to EA. Well I don't have Twitter anymore but I did make this video calling them out. I forgot how to properly post a video on these forums so I apologize. I'm almost strictly offline so I play only the solo challenges. I've done them all and I was at a point where I only have to worry about doing the new weekly challenges. The 3 new ones this week I'm not even going to bother playing. The advertise new spotlight cards and legends but hardly anyone has them! Part of that is the pricing of their packs which is a complete ripoff. Part of it is the bad pack odds. Do any of you know anyone that has a Kevin Durant or CP3? I haven't seen those players. I've seen two Lebron's on Xbox and that's it. One was posted this week that was the Christmas edition and the starting price was 1 million coins and buy not at 1.5 million coins. I want to tell that person to go screw themselves. Anyway, I don't like the direction EA is going with their sports games. It's very UT focused and although I get why they're doing it because it brings in money, it doesn't mean I agree with it.

Well, you don't wanna make it too easy either. I hated playing Madden ut and when you got to a 99 team rating, you would get your normal team matched up against guys with 95+ rated players at every position and 2 or 3 deep.

Man, I was disappointed to logon last week to see them featuring Gary Payton, one of my favorite players of all time and knowing that I would not be able to get him or any other legend. What a tease.

Qballer wrote:Well, you don't wanna make it too easy either. I hated playing Madden ut and when you got to a 99 team rating, you would get your normal team matched up against guys with 95+ rated players at every position and 2 or 3 deep.

Man, I was disappointed to logon last week to see them featuring Gary Payton, one of my favorite players of all time and knowing that I would not be able to get him or any other legend. What a tease.


I'm fine with not making it too easy but c'mon man. The gold premium packs went from 5K coins in 14 to 15K in 15. That's ridiculous. It should be 7500 like in MUT, FUT, & I think even in HUT. How are you gonna raise the price so much for a game that doesn't even have as much user base as those other sports games I mentioned? The AH is nearly dead and full of idiots posting even more ridiculous prices for cards. Like the regular gold Kobe I saw for 250K. Smh man that's just stupid.

Klay Thompson and Hassan Whiteside are the featured players this week.

Image Image

Funnily enough, Thompson's three point rating and overall rating are actually lower in his featured player card than they are in the current roster.

The discrepancy in ratings is interesting. It's clear that the roster for the regular game is completely independent from the Ultimate Team roster. Haven't really looked, but players who have improved their ratings this season might not have that carried over to UT

I got the rockets Chinese new year jersey. It takes 2 wins to get to one of the two new jerseys.

Saving up for this 42k throwback pack. If I don't get a legend, I give up on ultimate team

So I actually saved up the coins to get the throwback pack but it was gone and I got a breakaway pack instead. I was pretty disappointed with what I got so I've given up on ultimate team.

The best player I got in about 14 or 15 packs was Jamal Crawford at 85 overall and no legends. I got an 89 ibaka in a free all star pack and bought Damian Lillard for 27000 coins

Clyde is a repeat legend. Doing a quick Google search, I think he was first in packs in early November.

Andrew - I agree, they are tough to get. When there were Legend packs I bought quite a few; those were the best packs to buy IMO.

So he was...back by popular demand, I guess!

Towards the end of the season, I'd like them to bring out all the available Legends in packs, at a slightly reduced cost. Something to give people to play with during the offseason, in the lead up to NBA Live 16.

I agree completely on that. Let the people get the Legends they really want. Even the top stars are too rare right now IMO. Namely Durant & James.
