NLSC Greatness in 2K PRO-AM

Postby Kenny on Sat May 14, 2016 7:02 pm

So lately myself and a few forum members have been playing quite a bit of 2K PRO-AM. Our record is rubbish, but we're still having a lot of fun.

I just thought I'd put this here in case other people want to join us (or even play us) at any point. It would be great to have more of a community involvement in the mode, since it is probably my favourite online mode in NBA 2K16 (even with all the cheese).

If anyone is interested in getting involved, send me a PM. I do have quite a busy schedule at the moment with my studies, but I am coming up to a break fairly soon.

Looks like I'm in the first video, too.

It's definitely been fun to "hang out", chat and play. The fact that we lost to a team with a Crying Jordan meme on their court still burns me up inside, though.

Fixed.

Talking to your teammates and the general camaraderie tend to make the mode for me. A lot needs to be fixed with the mode itself, but it's definitely more bareable when you play with people you trust.

And yeah... stupid crying meme. Can't believe we lost to those guys twice.

Third time's the charm, if we run into them again. I mean, I'm a 73 overall, now. Practically superstar status!

I added a couple of team highlight videos and an individual one as well. With the NLSC Greatness potentially fielding a team on both Friday and Saturday, hopefully there will be more to come soon.

The latest win has been added, as well as the legendary JaoSming highlight package.

Last night was frustrating to say the least. Match ups took a while to find and we played the same cheesy team 3 times. The worst part is, we were legitimately in every game at the end of the first quarter, but we always had a huge run go against us. I like to think we are a far better team than the overall suggests.

Kevin, win-loss record added to the first post (all 19 losses were 2K cheese! Exclamation points!)

zzcoolj21, with our current lineups, you would probably have to play power forward, since my guy is a 6'5 small forward. If that's okay with you, you're welcome to join us at some point if there's an available spot (we had 5 players last night for the first time).

Frustration didn't help either in last night's games. After playing that team a few times and getting rattled, we probably weren't making our best decisions.

Added a video of the 5 of us playing well.

zzcoolj21, let it be known that I fully condone "kick ball violations" against cheesy big men in 2K PRO-AM.

Andrew, I think it was a factor as well. Looking back through the footage, I think we're better in a halfcourt setting. When we try and rush things, that's when we get in trouble. We (myself particularly) also need to kick the ball out more when it gets into the post. I'd be interested to see how we play if we adopt a mindset that we will never get shooting fouls called for us, because in reality, it takes a lot for us to get shooting fouls.

Kevin, you're on thin ice. We take our 2K PRO-AM very seriously, as you'd see with our "Take This W!" scorer's table banner.

Last weekend was one of the more frustrating runs, as our win-loss ratio got blown out even further. We get absolutely hammered when we try and drive to the hoop and get basically no fouls, while the other teams generally spam the three point line. Perhaps it's a sign of the current state of the NBA? Who knows... all I know is, online play is increasingly frustrating because of it.

We had zzcoolj21 join us for our last game of the night. By then we were incredibly frustrated (hence why I intentionally fouled out of the game), but I managed to record his first basket for us, which was actually a pretty good team play. I just hope he doesn't hate us because of how terribly we played :lol:

Also, I put the 8th win video as unlisted. Still not quite sure what context they're using their logo in.

Picked up another couple of wins by default on Friday night. For some reason, those two teams just didn't want to play us. Would've liked to have full games, but we'll take the W's nonetheless.

Looking forward to NBA 2K16 coming out on PS+. I'm hoping it'll mean increased participation in 2K PRO-AM... and if I'm completely honest, I'm also hoping it means more scrub teams that we can pick up cheap wins off of :lol:

It does indeed. These days, a lot of our opponents are maxed out or at least 90+, so you'll need to upgrade your player if you haven't already. Despite a decent showing in the first game I played at 69 Overall, lately I'm finding that a 74 Overall player just doesn't cut it a lot of the time. :lol:

Speed is the killer, since I'm playing point guard. Any time my match-up is a maxed out player (or close enough), it's tough to keep pace with them, as a lot of players just sprint around in the half court. While I've rarely experienced any really bad lag, the responsiveness obviously isn't quite as good as it is offline, so when you add a drastic difference in speed ratings on top of that, so it's an even bigger disadvantage when you're trying to guard them...especially off-ball.

Re: NLSC Greatness in 2K PRO-AM

8am your time is generally pretty feasible for me (usually up til about 10am your time on weekends), so if you guys want a bit of a sleep in, that would be fine. Only problem with that might be getting match ups, but we seem to do okay after midnight.

Does the PS+ version give any free VC straight after installation? Because if it does, I'd recommend spending most - if not all - of it on upgrading player attributes to make your player Pro-Am ready.

But yeah, it'd certainly be great to have more of you on board :)

Finally able to visit the forums again from my home PC!

Another fun, but frustrating at times, weekend of PRO-AM. It looked like [Q] was going to be our good luck charm, but alas, he witnessed some of the PRO-AM quirks we've complained about towards the end of our run. It was also great having JaoSming join us as well. Having a legit post player in the paint makes a big difference. [Q]'s effort at power forward was valiant as well :lol:

Also, check out Andrew's latest Monday Tip -Off about his 2K PRO-AM experiences: http://www.nba-live.com/monday-tip-off- ... 2k-pro-am/

Not only does it have great insight, but you'll also be able to see the box score from game 13.

Q's turn at power forward as a 5'7" point guard truly was a demonstration of it not being the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.

The X and JaoSming provide us with some great contributions with their bigs, but they're not able to join in as often due to family commitments and in Jon's case, difference in time zone as well. So having another big on the squad probably wouldn't go astray!

I dominated with like 3 rebounds and a block at PF. Everything started off well as we killed the first two teams and it was all downhill from there.

I've been working hard on getting my player better, trying to become a great 3 & D player. I think I'm at about 67 or 68 overall now

Updated with the latest games.

3 games away from completing the equivalent of an NBA season. Can we make it to 24 wins? Maybe 22?

We are undefeated (1-0) when I have 0 turnovers. So all I have to do is have 0 turnovers every game. Easy.

I've been putting in some work and now I feel like my player can at least keep up with the 99s. I've almost maxed out defense and 3 point shooting so I'm a great 3 & D player with an overall of about 77 now

I took advantage of a VC deal to get my player up to 88, and acquire a few nifty dunk packages, as well as Ray Allen's jumpshot. Eager to see how that works out.

Pdub, I believe we're usually on Friday morning your time. However, my schedule is fairly flexible over the next week, so I could probably get on when it's more suitable for you (within reason... I'm generally not much of a morning person while I'm on semester break). Let me know what the best times are for you and I'll see if I can arrange something.

zzcoolj21, we also have a 1.000 win percentage when you do KG blocks after the whistle (y)

[Q], that's awesome. I could imagine your dude being quite a thief with max defense ratings. It would definitely be advantageous if they put you at power forward again ;)

Andrew, here's hoping for more plays where the defense completely abandons the paint (y)

As long as it's not early morning my time, that's fine. After 9am my time on Fridays is sufficient.

Yeah there was one day with 40% off attributes so I tried to take advantage of that

I had promised myself I wouldn't spend any additional money on the game this year, but it was too good to pass up. Also, I was getting jealous of everyone else's repertoire of dunks. :lol:

I'd like to try and join (7 ft center, 87 ovr, kinda shaq like), but I'm not sure if it would work due to the distance.

The biggest obstacle is generally the time difference. The American users don't really encounter too much lag on the Australian/Oceania/Whatever server - or at least it isn't too noticeable on our end - so hopefully you wouldn't have too much of a problem with that.

Anyway, we could always do with another centre on the team, so I'll add you on the PSN and you can give it a go at some point if you want.

Played a few fun games with you guys, although it would be better if I didn't have to press every button a second or two in advance.

Looks like you can really use the big guy in the paint.

And who was the one with 2-14 again? :D

It's definitely crucial to have someone controlling a big, so that you're not relying on the CPU to get the job done in the paint. We've had some decent games without one, but with so many people creating maxed out seven footers, it's a lot tougher.

I think my player is 6'10". I splurged on VC since I got the game free. So, I can also help you guys in the paint when I get home from work in time one of these days.
