Going back to release, there has been one specific thing about AI defensive rotations and assignments that has been killing the game for me and driving me nuts.

When bringing the ball up the court, nobody picks up the trail man.

If the trail man is a capable shooter, I get plenty of wide open 3s each game. Going small or playing a stretch 4 has never been so effective. Heck, he doesn't even have to be a 3 point shooter...an athletic guy can use the space to drive straight to the hoop. At least that's how I scored half of my points the little bit of time I played MyCareer.

I was playing a game with Dirk at the 4, and late in the game I realized my usage patterns for Dirk are completely different than in real life because of it. Check this:

I took my time and waited to shoot for effect. This is Dirk Freakin' Nowitzki, and the defense couldn't care less. The problems extend beyond allowing open 3s, too:

Are you kidding me? They just let him walk right up the hoop. This obviously isn't an every play occurrence, but it happens far too frequently.

Like I said, this has been bugging me ever since release...the patches really haven't seemed to do anything. I think I'm really noticing it even more now that I'm playing games where either Dirk or PG13 are playing the 4 and scoring mad buckets. I really hope this is something that can be fixed, or requires a small adjustment on my part. I find myself running an actual half court offense far too infrequently and it's tanking my enjoyment of the game.

Also, would like to give another +1 to checking out the MyLeague/MyGM "Fix-It List" over on OS. There are some really important tuning suggestions in that thread that I imagine could be accomplished this year and would have a tremendous impact on the mode.

Dear Devs can you please make the numbers on back of the Jordan era (85-86, 88-89, 90-91, 92-93, 95-96 & 97-98) Bulls jerseys closer to scale and lower? They're too small and too high.

Dear Devs,
something really simple i just want to be added to the game and that's to be able to equip accessories with the 2nd team color of the team kind of weird having your myplayer wear different colored gear for example playing for the Lakers your teammates wearing all yellow sleeves and you're the only one wearing purple, a stupid request i guess but a little detail goes a long way

Oh man, yes. Glaring hole in the AI governing defense in general, and definitely a glaring hole in how AI is supposed to adjust to one's gameplay. Last night, I played a few games in MyTeam...Challenges vs. CPU (so difficulty was only All-Star, but I don't think that's the issue here).

Played a lot with Draymond Green at the 5 and Porzingis or Paul George at the 4. All throughout the game, from beginning to end, the CPU did not feel the need to have an off-ball defender mark these guys as they slowly came up the court and approached the 3-point line. CPU would only have defender come out to meet them when they received the ball, so there's clearly AI telling CPU to defend a 3-point shooter with the ball. And we know that there's AI telling CPU to off-ball defend a 3-point shooting big man...but only once the halfcourt action has begun. But not when the shooting big man is just strolling up from the backcourt.

The only reason I couldn't get wide open shots with trailing bigs was because it's not super-easy to get the bigs to behave optimally to receive the ball to take a trailing three-point shot.

But, any which way, one frequently gets wide open shots, and it's trivial to get decent looks that should be hard to work for. One could do nothing but shoot trailing threes with rangy big men all game long and the CPU would still have their defender camped out at the free throw line, waiting for that big to trot into the paint.

More hashtags & adverts, 2K shouldn't forget that customers buyed their game
Or should release a free to play next time
Otherwise, game runs smoother today

Not likely since every update screws up game play more than before, but as long as people get their socks all is good.

Leftos, in MyGM/MyLeague modes, once you advance 5-10 years down the line and players start retiring/regressing and cpu generated players start to take over, the player stats are all wonky.

Generated point guards are fine. But generated PF and C's are given a "pass to open man tendency" of either 0 or 3 or so. And SF's and SG's are given a tendency anywhere between 0 and 15. This results in all generated non-PG players averaging assist numbers anywhere between 0.0 and 0.5 assists per game.
This makes the game unplayable for me. :( It ruins the suspension of disbelief of the NBA landscape, and makes things really unrealistic. Not to mention the gameplay disadvantages. Only point guards pass.

Right now, the only fix is it edit every single player myself (which is extremely time consuming and complete saps the fun out of the game, but alas).
I'd like to make 30 draft classes so i can edit it once and use it for the rest of the season, but 2k16 has such limited slots (only 10!) for both draft classes and roster slots, which are already taken by other creative things i'm working on or have downloaded. I have to rely on downloading people's draft classes online straight from the network (without me editing it myself), but there's never any guarantee that they've actually gone to the meticulous detail of editing player tendencies.

MyGM/MyLeague mode is the only mode i play. I love playing with the NBA landscape. But after getting so hyped about it, it's unplayable, unless i edit every single generated player myself after they are drafted (which isn't even possible in MyGM mode). Any chance of a patch that can fix this? Or do i have to wait until next year's game?

also when it comes to MyLeague and MyGM players are almost not earning any badges even after 4/5 seasons, it doesn't matter if you have your ass. or coach or both with teacher badge :roll:

I echo with the above sentiments on Generated rookies tendencies. I think this needs to be looked at and reworked for 2k17.

Also Foul Tendency needs to not be a tendency but an attribute. It is the opposite of Draw Foul (which is an attribute) and is directly skill related.

How well a big man or wing defender defend without fouling is 100% skill, effort, and focus thus it needs to be something that can be worked on in training in a MyGM/MyLeague.

Consider Foul Tend. being the defensive attribute version of Draw Foul
