-Allow subs on and-1s. Players should sub in before the free throw is taken but it doesn't happen
-Contested shot logic seems a bit off. Even more confusing post patch when the green ring means nothing as any player within 5 feet of a player on the release causes it to be "guarded" or "contested"
-Shot timing results need to be re-worded. Great shooters should rarely miss "perfect" releases (especially wide-open ones) and should have more luck or leeway on slightly early or late ones. Same for free throws.
-Fix the scenarios/situations for BIG moments. I LOVE this mode, but a lot of these situations are obviously televised on TV, so it's noticeable when the situation isn't set up EXACTLY like how it was in real life. Wrong lineups, jerseys, inbounding positions, even incorrect stats (Points first half:0 second half:35)
-In Dynasty, allow for teams to trade without roster restrictions. Most of the other teams have 15 players so it's a bitch to make trades with an even amount of players on both sides. Trades should be allowed to go through and the teams with more than 15 players are required to immediately waive a player. This is also a pain in the offseason when resigning players and then needing to save 2 spots for the draft and then having no room for free agents.
-Controls need to be "tighter". I feel myself doing a lot of "stick waggling", especially when waiting for dribble animations to end or if I'm in the post. I really liked the responsiveness of the Live 14 demo's controls.
-in-game Injuries, please! and not fake ones that don't hurt like in Live 10
-Roster editing. If not, have rosters updated every day like in Live 10. Seriously, the roster updates were perfect in Live 10. Honestly I don't care if random player gets a 1 point boost in a certain rating, I just want the rosters to be RIGHT.
-BRING BACK LIVE RUN
-More online game modes, like OTP or allow you to bring a guest to play against others online. Just bring back all online modes from Live 10 haha
-All-star weekend. Weird, this was a staple of many wishlists pre-Live 2005. Dunk Contest, 3 point contest, skills challenge (dribbling, passing and shooting drills couldn't be that hard to do right?), Shooting Stars (more shooting), Rising stars. Integration into Dynasty where you can vote on All-star starters of your conference the day before the weekend.
-Overtime should not be 5 minutes long. it should be 2 max. Games are long enough, I feel like the refs do when overtime happens. I just want the game to be over.
-FIX FREE THROW SHOOTING. It's TOO DAMN EASY. I think overall, I'm shooting 90%+ all-time, even with 40% free throw shooters. There's seriously no challenge in free throw shooting. Please bring back the Elite method of free throw shooting and make it easier for highly rated players, harder for bad free throw shooters.
-Correct jerseys (Sorry, I'm an artist, so I notice these things). Seriously, I don't understand how these aren't perfect here in 2015. Lakers throwback has the NBA logo on the back, Cavs throwbacks incorrectly have the current numbers, many teams have wrong font of letters on back or incorrectly spaced letters on back. oh and my god the numbers are freaking humongous this year. Y'all took pictures of jerseys and "scanned" them, and yet completely ignored the size of the numbers relative to everything else on the jersey?
-Integrate legends into other parts of the game. I want to be able to play as Gary Payton without needing to find a needle in a haystack to get his card in UT. I dunno, have a "Legends scrimmage" pick up game to avoid licensing issues with retro team players.
-Add retro courts in UT, or at least the arenas without company names in them. Or maybe older court designs of current arenas? Bring back the Raptors 3D sideline "sign"
-Add Mark Jackson back in. Even if all he says is MOMMA THERE GOES THAT MAN and HAND DOWN, MAN DOWN on replays
-Allow accelerated clock options so that quarters can start at 12 mins. kinda like how in fifa you can pick how long the halves are
-TV timeouts to break up long stretches of play. It also allows us to get subs in. I've resorted to intentionally fouling just to get guys in.
-Keep the block animations! These are great.
-Non-guaranteed contracts in Dynasty
and comments on some of the others' wishlist items
6.) In-depth look at lineups.
- I have had this in my mind for such a long time. Basically, it will allow us to create a group of 5 players to play on the court and we can name it as "Blowout" , "Rim Protection" , "Second Unit" , etc.. And we can just quick switch to it when we substitute players.
I really like this idea of custom lineups. Instead of letting them guess who you want, you should be able to set these lineups before the game and switch to them easily in-game
10.) More cut scenes.
- Show us the reaction of the fans when a player hits the game-winning shot or show us the reaction of the bench when a guy like Jordan posterizes somebody hard.
Agree on game winners/misses and series/finals wins. Madden does a great job on Super Bowl wins.
Disagree on post-basket cut scenes. I immediately switched the setting to "rarely". It makes the game longer than it already is. I've now switched it to "never"
2) Tighter jerseys.
Properly fitted jerseys
Jerseys should fit better on the player
There's a few people that have mentioned this and y'all are on crack. Jersey fitment is fine. just a LITTLE floaty but not as bad as how 2k used to have them and is barely noticeable. It seems that floating jerseys are necessary in order them to be moving. If they do happen to make them super-tight, you guys would complain that they look "painted on"
Presentation is fine. I like the Jalen segments, but I wind up skipping them almost all the time now.
Tweak jumpshot release timing, add an on-screen cue for the optimal release point (similar to 2K's flash in the player indicator), and adjust the contested/guarded logic; presently, "contested" shots can happen when a defender gets there very late, or is simply in the vicinity of the shooter but doesn't have a hand in their face (or isn't even in front of them). The AI in particular uses this to a great and unrealistic effect, coming up with contested shots that really should count as being wide open.
I think jumpshot release timing is fine, although it is really weird when you get inside and timing does not matter for layups and dunks, so it's hard to tell when you need to hold the shot button. I totally agree on the contested/guarded logic. It's a lot less forgiving after the patch, and It's nearly impossible to hit jumpers in the lane or open 3s with late closeouts
Bring back in-game injuries, but don't have them depend solely on hard fouls or shooting fouls.
Great idea. could be a random occurrence when landing on an opponent's foot on a layup or hell just coming down like Derrick Rose. In-game injuries should carry over if major (out for game) to dynasty
The AI seems to draw a lot of charging fouls in NBA Live 15 that really shouldn't be called charges (eg when it jumps into a user controlled player to block a shot). Conversely, it's very hard to draw charges at the other end. This is something that needs to be adjusted and balanced.
AI is great at taking charges and I admit a lot of them are actually charges. Fair enough. but I have not yet able to take 1 charge on the computer and it's really frustrating.
Reduce the prices on packs; while the content/value was alright, the prices were a little steep in NBA Live 15, compared to NBA Live 14.
I get 1000-1300 coins on average per win vs the CPU. and all these special packs are like 52000 coins. I don't have the time or patience to play 40 games to get a special "breakaway pack" or whatever only to get 1 gold player that's rated 81.
We get teased with legends every week and it's impossible to get them. On the PSN trophy list, 0.7% have achieved that, and I bet it's those people that buy packs with real money. Then they put legends up for auction for ridiculous amounts of coins to make a profit.
2. Allow us to edit our line ups before each quarter begins
YES. This was a great feature in 2k7. Give us the option at least, where we can X through it if we don't want subs.
5. Cheaper Gold packs in Ultimate team, and also have more contracts in packs
I have 15 pages of contracts. You get like 3 of them in a lot of these "coin packs". It's not a problem for me
It might help the unfair rebounding logic in the game, sometimes the CPU gets 5 offensive rebounds in a row
Interesting. That's never happened to me. they've had maybe 2 or 3 max against me.
10. Allow users to enable Aggressive Defense, similar what the CPU can do to you in the 4th quarter
- the higher the aggressiveness, the more fatigue gets used
awesome idea. L2 defensive assist button feels like it does nothing in the game as players already automatically get into defensive stance.
