If it's on both sides of the ball it should be ok

Speed Modifier – Speed Moves are short, quick moves that can be pulled off at full speed while not veering off the path the ball carrier is currently on. These moves are performed while holding or pressing R2/RT (Accel Burst) + the corresponding special-move button. Again, the quality of the move is based on the player’s ratings with all new animations. Users will now have to perfect the skill of laying off the gas pedal on RT/R2 and mix in changing up speeds when running the ball. Speed moves carry the lowest risk for stamina, fumble and injury and can fakeout one defender at a time.


Yeah, I read that Madden blog and felt some of it could be implemented for Live 17, maybe they'll take ideas from them.

For sure. As long as speed bursts are properly balanced and can't be exploited on either side of the ball, they won't be cheap and cheesy.

It's a minor request but it would be nice if they created player portraits with each team. What I mean with this is that every player in the league had their portrait (you know their photo with his team jersey on) with every team in the league. It would be implemented in Rising Star and Dynasty mode when players get traded or signed with another team, and on Ultimate Team by the home jersey you chose. An example would be having Kevin Durant with a Celtics or Heat jersey like the ones below. Small touch but would help with the immersion of said modes (specially on Rising Star and Dynasty).

The league might not be in favour of that. One alternative is to use in-game renderings ("3D portraits", as they used to be called in the settings), but I for one prefer the touch of using real portraits.

Another alternative would be to use portraits with generic white jerseys - from memory, NBA 2K did that one year - but I'm not as big a fan of that look, once again compared to using real player portraits.

Why would that be? 2K creates players with their new teams with their "action shots" (or however it's called when you go through teams in roster management).
I'm not in favor of 3D portraits, last year they tried it and for some reason it didn't look good at all despite having great graphics.
If the idea can't be done for some reason then I prefer keeping the real portraits.

Action shots should be fine, as they did that with the halftime and post-game shows. It may not be the case, but I'm guessing that photoshopping real portraits might be a step too far. For example, the league doesn't allow you to order custom jerseys from the NBA store that use a real player's name and number on another team: if you try to order a #35 Golden State Warriors jersey with "Durant" on the back, it won't allow it. I'm assuming they might have similar objections to their licensed video games having jersey swaps of real media day portrait photos.

From a technical point of view, there's over 400 players in the league. Give them all a custom jersey swapped portrait for every team in the league, and that's over 12,000 portraits in the game. Even if the NBA would allow it, it might not be feasible (or at least, a high priority) for EA to do that.

Wow, I didn't know about the jersey thing, don't know why could that be an issue.

I don't know about being that time consuming, I made those two in less than 15 minutes. Having that said, I wouldn't lose any sleep if they don't do that, it was a minor suggestion which isn't that important at all compared to all the things Live needs to improve.

You did two in less than fifteen minutes. They'd be doing 12,000, with a few other things to work on at the same time. ;)

I assuming the NBA simply wants accuracy/authenticity in all of its officially licensed products, and doesn't like the idea of official merchandise that appears to suggest a player is on a team that he doesn't actually play for. Of course, in the above example, too bad if your surname also happens to be Durant, you're a Warriors fan, and you like the number thirty-fve!

Add all fouls. Missing fouls include:

Over the back (which happens so frequently without being called)
Blocking
Illegal pick

As a team we avg 7 fouls/game. Our opponents avg 8 fouls/game. In real life, teams avg 20 or more fouls/game.

Get rid of point penalties such as:

Pass up open look (stated this in a previous post). If we have a big lead and want to run the clock down, I want to move the ball as long as possible. The "pass up open shot" penalty is not conducive to that kind of play.

Allow open shot. If it's a miss resulting in a defensive rebound, so what if it was an open shot. Also, there are some players who are such poor shooters it makes no sense to play them tight when you could help a teammate defend a really good player. Also, if we're leading by 20 or more points with 2 minutes left, so what if they took an open shot. The penalty should only be applied when it results in points for that team, and only then in the context of the game situation. If it can't be arranged that way, take it out completely.

Make the inside game a lot more difficult. It's way too easy on any level. I carry a 77% shooting because I drive the basket most of the time. A huge majority of my misses come from outside the 3 point line. The only 2 shots I take, 3-pointers and layups/dunks (as a SG). As a team (GS) we're have a 67% shooting pct. 4 of 5 starters are shooting over 63%. Curry is at 47% but he shoots a lot of 3's. Last season with Cleveland we shot 65% as a team. Why? A lot has to do with my focus on getting the ball inside. It really is just too simple.

Make players who don't shoot much.....not shoot much. It's a bit tiring watching players who average 2-4 ppg and 4-5 FG Att/game in real life continuing to score 20 - 30 points every time we play them. Players like DeAndre Jordan and Kyle O'Quinn for example. It's just not realistic.

Another PIA, getting sucked into a pick. I can't tell you how many times I am running 2-3 steps away from someone setting a pick that my player gets sucked into it like a magnet pulling me into it. I have no control over my player once the magnet kicks in.

All AI players can stop and cut on a dime. The human player takes a step or two before he can change directions, using turbo or not. Either the AI players need to take the extra step or two or the human player should be able to stop and change directions along with the AI players. That is really an unfair advantage for the AI when trying to defend against them.

Also, what is it with players driving the basket from outside the key without ever dribbling and no travel being called? I've seen players take 3 or 4 steps on the way to the basket without dribbling.

LET US DECIDE WHAT TYPE OF PASS TO THROW. I am sick and tired of watching my passes go right into the chest or feet of a defender who is 1 or 2 steps away because I have no option to throw it over them.

Bring NBA Live 17 to PC, that's all.

I feel that you would have far better sales from the PC community, what do you have to lose? Do a test run and see how it goes. People that wouldn't even play the game for PC would buy it just to mod it. I can't believe the number of people who have admitted buying NBA 2K for PC, and don't play it/or hardly play it, they buy it for the ability to mod it.

That's something I find to be rather strange. I'm obviously very much in favour of our modding community, but given the choice, I'd rather play a great game than mod a broken one.

Made a video a month ago about ways of making Pro-Am more team-oriented by promoting teamwork and to discourage ballhogging. Hope someone from EA can watch it and find it useful for Live 17.

Some good ideas there. While I have my gripes with NBA 2K's grading logic, some of its deductions for genuinely bad decisions, poor shot selection and so forth, are appropriate and effective deterrents. You can also get kicked from a game in 2K Pro-Am if you drop below a D- grade. There's a downside to that as the grading logic isn't always fair, and given the squad aspect it really should be up to the team to make that call, but it's good for the Walk-On games.

Speaking of squads, I think that's something LIVE Pro-Am should do. I know there's a Play With Friends option, and it's definitely better than playing with randoms, but the ability to create a squad with stats tracking, ongoing win-loss record, and team branding would be awesome. I also think that there should be both street-oriented and NBA-oriented options within LIVE Pro-Am, similar to how 2K has MyPARK and 2K Pro-Am. While I originally liked the LIVE Pro-Am concept more, I've come to prefer what 2K has done (some changes in NBA 2K17 aside). Having both styles of rules and gameplay would obviously cater to both preferences, so everyone wins there.

I feel a lot of things that NBA 2K have in their game, some things like that should be brought into the next LIVE.
All of the 'MyPark' been able to free roam around different courts, get to play with friends and different people with your own Pro. Sit round the courts, watching other people play, queing up for a game with friends.

I've also seen Glow Up Dark courts, slam dunk contests, things that are fun to do throughout the game.
Weekly challenges on LUT Is an important thing, just like there is on the Mobile, day to day live events, Different sets and collectables for players.

Just there is so many things i could go through, like a NBA Live's own version of 'My Park' different events throughout the game, daily live events, just so much stuff LIVE That you can bring in!

Listen to all your fans, and also look what NBA 2K17 Have in their game!!!

Good luck on the new Upcoming Game EA!

I had a game last week in which one player from the opposite team floated around the court and when someone passed him the ball he just stood there waiting for a shot clock violation. I hope EA finds a way to eliminate that kind of players from the mode, tuning the grade logic is key there.

The idea of the video was strictly about the gameplay aspect of the mode but I agree with what you've mentioned. NBA Elite 11 had a great idea about a mode similar to Pro-Am (EASBA I believe) which included creating a team of friends and playing against other squads while improving team editing and playing in better courts while getting wins. Hope those ideas translate to Live 17.

I just played Madden 17 (X1) for the first time last night... and they made so many improvements. The game feels smooth, far less herky jerky than Madden 16, and the presentation is amazing. Also, the graphics very much resemble real life.

Here is what I am hoping: EA Sports brings the same type of attention to NBA Live 17... Including the way Madden conducts its franchise mode. Atleast in Madden you can use multiple teams in the mode, including having a fantasy draft option. Meaning, local multiplayer would finally be an option. I feel like the animations in Madden have shown great improvement.

Anybody else agree with this assessment? Playing Madden got me pumped for NBA Live 17...

I don't play Madden myself, or FIFA or NHL for that matter, but hearing about some of the improvements that have been made in those games, I definitely hope that NBA Live receives similar attention and resources, and ultimately find the success it used to have.

TonyAttia from OS made a great video of several issues plaguing NBA Live 16 which most (if not all) gameplay flaws need to be fixed for Live 17.
phpBB [video]


After playing some previous Live games I found that there are several mechanics that are missing which I miss. I always preferred having more control about what I want to do on the court instead of the game decide it for me, which I feel limits the feel of the game. One of those things is when you make a pro hop or eurostep and the layup automatically triggers instead of manually doing it myself. This like that, Live 10's off the ball controls, Live 14's manual passing and others I wish would come back.

Agreed. Contextual animations have their place, but a good amount of control needs to be in the user's hands.

1. We need an option to tilt the floor if for example we see lebron isolating on one side of the court, we can hit quick play "Tilt Floor", which will tell all weakside defenders to sag off their man and be ready to bring immediate help against lebron if he decides to go to the basket

2. There should be a "Double-Off ___ player" option. For example if I'm playing the grizzlies and Z-Bo gets the ball down-low, I want to be able to set my defensive settings for Tony Allen to "Double-off Tony Allen". So that the player defending Tony Allen is the one who comes over for the double team, not the guy guarding Mike Conley who can actually shoot.

3. Introduce something similar to the VIP system where we could download online players or our own VIP profiles and assign them to any team. To prepare us on that players tendencies or just to give us the feeling of playing online, offline against the cpu

This idea is about the VIP System or Adaptive AI for RisingStar mode and Dynasty mode. It would be cool if the ai was able to adapt to your playstyle in Dynasty mode and RisingStar mode using your season tendencies and gameplanning against that. Like putting a certain defender on player X or attacking a player on defense that has been giving up alot of points recently. If there is favorite spot you like to score from the ai would adapt and have a help defender zone you or if your in a cold shooting slump the defender will sag off of you. This will all possible if you brought in the VIP system the competition had years ago.

4. Not every team pushes the ball on a break so how about this idea. Have a walk the ball up the court/fastbreak tendency for user/cpu for sometimes you want CPU to just slow things down ( MIGHT BE CONTROLLED BY COACHING TENDENCY)

5. Being able to call timeouts midair when ball goes out of bounds or attempt to throw ball off of of other team players. Just thinking maybe things could move in slow motion for a bit, just brainstorming on this idea off the top of my head please NBA Live expand on this further.

6. There should be a switch button for ex rondo is guarding lebron I should be able to run over with butler and press the switch button to get rondo to switch. It would really help on pick and roll defense

7. This rating, badge, tendency or option is for bigman like Ben Simmons, Draymond Green that like to push the ball in transition after a rebound, there should be a rating, badge, tendency or option for players like that. "Bigman one man fastbreaks"

1. Also, we should have a sort of "Help Defense Attention" meter for every player in the Coaching section of the pause menu. So, like, if we're playing against Cleveland, we can set LeBron's Help Defense Attention to 100, so that everyone will be focused on bringing help defense when he drives, but we can set jr smith to like 50, so when he drives, help defense will come, but not as strong as when LeBron drives.

That's how it works in real life. As of now, our only option is to set help defense strength to the same value for everybody, so that the help on a jr smith drive will look the same as on a James drive.

Hell, to even add to that, if you set someone to 100, the defense should shade, tilt the court, whatever you wanna call it, toward that player when he gets the ball in position to make a play (i.e., at or inside the three-point line).


2. This idea is for SimHeads, Player Breather Meter for players that abuse the turbo button. Similar to how the gatorade icon pops up warning you of your fatigue level, this instead will have a meter warning you to take a breather. Just like in real life players will take plays off when their winded, the same result will take place in the game but as you become stationary and layoff the turbo your players breather meter will regenerate. Once you abuse the turbo again the meter will decrease leaving your player with signs of sluggishness.

As the meter depletes fully it leaves your player vulnerable on the offense affecting the players strength in the post position and boxing out. On defense a winded player will be more susceptible to fouling offensive player for example hand-checking fouls on defense and holding offensive cutter like players do in real life when they need a breather. As an off-ball player for both offense and defense your player will compensate by having moments of bending down hands on knees gasping for air. Please expand on this idea further

3. User Controlled tap back rebounds
6. Ability to split the defense on a pick and roll 12. Manually trigger a protect the ball animation when driving to the hoop ex marbury
13. Alley Oop spin out post position animation like Blake griffin
14. More signature walk/run animations, dribbling, layup and post up
19. Hack a Shaq strategy should only be used in the last in the 4th qtr to avoid cheesing
21. Add an animation to completely stuff a dunk at the highest point by going straight
1. NBA TNT style presentation and abc
2. For Franchise add a weekly wrap up show like NFL 2k5
5. Pre game presentation show players in dressing room with headphones putting on their sneakers
7. Add press conference interviews for playoffs/final games
8. Post game interviews in locker room for regular season games
9. Pre game presentation show announcers talking
10. Post game interaction with crowds throwing jersey in to the stands, high fiving fans and signing sneakers and posters
14. Pre game presentation have players rocking their suits/glasses/head phones coming to the games in the walk way area at the arena
15. Post game interviews have players rockin their signature fashion glasses/suits/watches
16. Add the champagne shower celebration in the locker room when you win conference/finals games on the road
17. Post game trophy ceremony for MVPs of all star game
18. Show the curry family watching from the stands
19. Pre game players huddled together giving motivational speeches

Referee Mode where you have the ability to officiate the game from all 3 of the referees eyes. All you do is press X to change from one referee eye view to the next referee eye view. Also you have one button for whistle and your able to select the foul or violation. For fouls/violations there will be colored markers underneath player that lights up a certain color alerting you of the foul/violation. For example red =travel, blue=blocking foul you'll have a certain time limit to call the foul/violation. For plays in the paint the camera would zoom in on the action and the game would slow down at the point of contact and it will be up to your discernment if the contact was a foul or not. Your performance would be graded on how accurate you are in calling fouls/violations between the time limit. Please expand on this great idea further, instead of colors underneath player it will be a random button that pops up randomly underneath player that you have to press before time lapses. So if it says press button B for the foul you have press it before button under player disappears. Every game you recieve scores your high scores are based on how accurate you are calling fouls. Your also competing against other fictional referee crews around the league. The referee crews with high scores get to referee the playoffs and the remaining crew with the highest score get to referee the finals

2. Call this rarely but flop button for the offensive player to draw fouls. For example james harden is driving into the lane with shotblocker like deandre jordan in the lane so double tap B button to initiate contact with defender and you end up grabbing your head in pain or flailing your arms or you end up falling on the floor. Make this a risk reward where not all the time you get the call and by flopping you risk turning over the ball

3. Reggie Miller leg kickout animation included in flop button on jumshots. Have it rarely called but it just adds a new layer to game play

4. For classic teams how about some old school presentation, example NBA on NBC theme tune and how about add generic commentators to freshen things up

5. Better halftime analysis, have game breakdown rather than random clips, breakdown the 1st and 2nd quarters for the halftime show, 3rd, 4th and overall game for the post game show analysis

6. The little things add championship gear to players that win the last two rounds of the playoffs

7. Tripping Foul calls ala Grayson Allen of Duke

8. This might already be in the game, we'll I know that the crowd in the game already stands up during end of game situations. But how about a big shot during the end of game you should have to crowd standing up actually jumping up and down punching their fist in the air in excitement

9. Implement player headfakes

The Little Things Wishlist Pt1

1. Players/Coaches that complain to the ref should recieve technicals
3. Players dropping accessories on the court floor for ex headbands after a hard foul
4. More highfiving teamates after trying to score on foul calls
6. During player interview segments have players wiping their head with a towel and have players change posture bending forward to hear sideline reporter better due to crowd noise
8. Make games more chippy and dirtier ex after a hard foul players confront each other ref steps in to break confrontation
9. Have bench players interact with in game players walking to the bench with high fives and chest bumps
10. Add this layup animation where player leads with their knee causing an offensive foul
11. Power dribble animation after an offensive rebound or a pass
1. Dynamic Ref Crew Personality Badges/Tendencies. 3 different Ref crews, one ref crew calls game tight the other lets you get away with contact/shoves/jersey holding and the other calls the game 50/50.

2. Option to play the pre-game shootaround drill option to turn it off as well. Before the tip off

3. Add ricky rubio fake behind pass into layup animation (The Little Things)

4. In a blowout win or loss and james harden is pulled out for the rest of the game have him laying down on his back near the bench area (The Little Things)

5. Players utilizing and getting away with moving screens ala draymond green

6. Players hands slapping backboard on missed block attempt in the low post area (The Little Things)

7. Recreating certain era dunk contests from the 1990's era Jordan freethrow line dunk to the 2000's era dunk contest with Vince Carter. Even the 2008 dunk contest with Dwight Howard dressed as superman recreating his dunk moments

8. During freethrow shot show a cutscene of player X discussing things over with the referee sometimes for example a foul called against him

9. For playoff presentation when a game is over show a camera shot or cutscene facing the team walking through the tunnels untucking their jerseys like a real life presentation. If its the losing team have them walking through the tunnels with their heads down with untucked jerseys

10. Program the AI to perform drive and kick ending with a touch pass shot. Also more pullup j's off of pick and roll for players like steph curry, damian lillard and brandon knight

They seriously need to be innovative I'm talking a grand theft auto style career mode where you could drive around to your home or to the home arena. Have a cell phone a laptop for on the go and a computer for home. Have minigames at your house like a pool table stuff like that. Also a barbershop you could drive to. Different venues in the community maybe walking distance like movie theaters with movies included in game, a gym to work out to build muscle or get lean and ripped or have film study breaking down your opponent on film for the upcoming game, basically stuff like that.
Image
Here's a basic version of my idea.

Create your Crib in RisingStar and make it interactive - A Door: to play your next game - A Computer: is your NBA .com - A Closet: is your edit player - A Television: could be your highlight or recap of the week in the NBA - A Bed: where you can simulate to the next day - A GYM: where you can edit and assign your skill points and do drills - A Shrine: as you complete milestones and win awards - A Phone: so you can contact your teammates, your coach and agent - Mini games: like playing pool, poker that you can play in your spare time.

Image
Let's get innovative how about during halftime shoot a halfcourt shot with a fan for a cash prize.

Image
NBA Live 18 has to have an All Star Game Mode with Dunk Contest instead of having to SIM midseason just to play it we can have it as a game mode.

Image
Can we finally get some towels in the game.

Image
Have cut stoppages like real life.

Image
Have NBA players sitting courtside during dunk contest celebrating, jumping out of their seats giving that holy ish face like Kevin Garnett did in that picture.

Image
Image
Have players who seriously injured their lowered extremities carried off the court and wheeled in a wheelchair to the lockeroom.

Image
Make the sideline's and baseline more interactive jumping into crowds to save loose balls, jumping into cameraman etc.

Image
Coaches being restrained, receiving technicals and ejections has to be put in the game.

Custom Music like MLB The Show needs to be included.

Image
Referees need to be more than props have player interacting with referees.

Image
Players interaction with referees during dead ball situations.

Image

Show shots of coaches calling plays from bench area.

Image
NBA won't allow this but player to player staredowns.

Image
NBA won't allow this but players being restrained from going after each other.

Image
Mycareer Interactive Trophy Presentation make it so we can control our player and walk to the podium to get the trophy, walk around the arena floor celebrating with the trophy, highfiving and chest bumping teammates, standing on top of scoring table pumping up the crowd. When you've played an entire league season you deserve more than a 5 minute cut scene to end your season

Image
standing ovations from home fans when a player gets up from injury or returns from injury. Also if a star/role player has a big game in a blowout and is subbed out should get a standing ovation

Image
During timeouts they should show animated commentators talking

Image
Post game analysis by animated commentaters should show barely any fans in arena. Just have commentaters discussing basic stuff like what both teams need to work on

Image
During freethrow shot show a cutscene of player X discussing things over with the referee sometimes for example a foul called against him

Image
during the finals show a cutscene of the league commissioner in attendance and have a sit-down interview with him. Could be a voice over and not his real voice

Image
For MYGM have a tribute night for the Legends where they are honored pregame and maybe show live footage of their highlights

Image
During timeouts have a little camera box on the bottom right part of the screen showing highlights sometimes

Image
Image
When a player gets hurt show him getting helped by trainers all the way to the lockeroom in a picture in picture box window and if injury not serious show trainer getting him stretched or iced up near the bench area

Image
During halftime when players are walking off the court I want them high fiving home fans and too be heckled,booed by away fans. You should show a cutscene of the away fans animating the boo sign while players walk off the court

Image
With the picture in picture box window during timeouts you guys can be creative with it by having 3 picture in picture box windows. One picture would have in game highlights another picture would have cheerleaders dancing. The third picture would have animated commentators maybe discussing the highlights or going through the stats of the game. While on the big picture would be the players huddled up with their coach

Image
players/coaches should be seen signaling timeouts in animations

Image
a button or badge for players that use their off-hand on drives to create seperation like melo/pierce

Image
Add this animation in the game where the offensive player hold's the ball like a football runningback when driving to the hoop

Image
The little things when a player falls to the ground I want them to get up and brace their wrist shaking it a little wincing in pain like its hurt and checking their fingers like if they jammed them. They don't need to miss any plays because of it but little things like this go a long way when it comes to immersion

Image
Image
