Official NLSC Wishlist for NBA 2K17

Talk about NBA 2K17 here.

1. Gameplay, Make offensive sets more accessible.
The options are hidden far too deeply in sub-menus to be able to accessed quickly with the shot clock running.

2. Gameplay/Attributes, Break 3pt Attributes into categories and adjust AI.
Players are shooting from further away and there's an urgent need to make "video game" Steph Curry measure up to real-life. Split the 3pt attribute for "Deep 3", "Corner 3", "Above the Break 3".

3. MyCareer / Return of Building a legend.
It'd be great to see this mode return, but from within MyCareer. Ie. start a new MyCareer "from existing player", then have it start in the current season, current team etc.
(It would need some sort of VC handicap % to be applied based on that player's overall rating to limit what you are able to earn in-game so that people don't use it to farm VC with Mr Curry.)

4. MyCareer, Allow option to upgrade attributes individually as well.
Re-open the ability to upgrade individual attributes or at least more targeted groups of attributes. It feels like the attribute "buckets" available are far too generic and limited to be able to truly customise a player.

5. MyCareer, Change how the attribute caps work.
Find a way for users to be able to become elite. There's no way to become Steph Curry in MyCareer. Perhaps provide cap increases for hitting goals in the same way as you receive Badges.

6. MyCareer, Please no fixed story this time.
Just let us play instead of watch.

7. MyCareer, Deepen High School/College, but also make it optional.
This is great, if you can make it a bit deeper in terms of gameplay (ie. not the player just being an automatic star) and also make it OPTIONAL.

8. MyCareer, Continue to improve Teammate grades.
Further improve "Teammate Grade" events - add some more but especially remove or reduce the penalty for allowing an offensive rebound when you are the help defender.

9. MyCareer, Don't fast-forward the Rookie year.
In 2K16 your rookie season meant nothing. That meant your first meaningful games occur in a fictional 2016-2017 season with new players and roster changes which makes it harder to relate to it to see where you and your team fit in.

10. MyCareer, Remove or revise Post-Game Interviews.
These are becoming pointless, especially when only two answers are available (good person/team-mate or jackass). I like the idea, I just don't know how useful they are in practice.

11. Make "Social Media" more useful by removing repetition.
When there are 3 different tweets for each news item, it dilutes the quality and takes away from the functionality of Social Media as an actual news tool that makes you feel immersed in the season.

12. Cutscenes, Allow ALL of them to be turned off.
Some people (like me) just want to play, so I'd like to be able to turn off ALL cutscenes incl. coach huddles, unrealistic 2nd year MyPlayer interactions with Superstars, End of quarter interviews, Private interviews with players (as cool as it is).

13. Commentary, time for some new blood.
It's getting to be very tired. Kevin Harlan is fine, but Greg Anthony and Clark Kellogg are just really annoying. Plus, there are certain lines of dialogue that just make you cringe and shouldn't have passed quality-control (seriously "bounce-to-the-ounce"???)

14. MyLeague/MyGM, Continue to improve options and sliders.
More sliders are always welcome, but perhaps add a tooltip that explains to the user in a bit more detail what they do and how they work. Also, some improved logic for the 12-Minute quarter score adjustment would be great to avoid 170-145 point games would be nice.

15. VC, provide other varied ways to earn.
Perhaps a MyCareer Triple VC first-game-of-the-day bonus. Increase the amounts available for spending off-days on endorsements. Give both MT & VC in MyTeam.

16. NBA 2KTV, needs to be surgically removed from my face.
I would really like it to stop autoplaying and preferably see it moved to Youtube altogether (where it belongs).

17. Improve length of replay history and allow saving/publishing to YouTube
Preferably allow you to replay through a whole game. Improve the controls (I don't know how they've stayed this way for so long). Allow to save or publish. This is not only good for sharing on social media, but improves bug reporting so that less tech-savvy users can demonstrate issues that otherwise need 3rd screen-recording software.

A few ideas...
1)Option to have a NBA 2K14 style MyCareer. Just play no cutscenes.
2)Option to play a whole HS senior and college season, meeting a few fictional players/rivals. These players could be in the same draft as you. As can your teammates. Would be tough to pass knowing that player reciving the pass can boost his draft grade, maybe moving ahead of you.
3)Since the rookie season means nothing, why not just start from 2018, just without any roster movers(so only the MC draft class can win rookie of the year).
4)Or start in 2017 as an existing rookie
5)Or start in 2017 as an existing veteran...

1. Bring back Create A Legend

2. No more computer flopping when you go for a dunk

3. Bring back the summer league for mycareer like they did in 2K11

4. Have us be able to participate in off season activities

5. Being able to join a Pro-Am and play against other NBA players

6. Sit down with your coach and having options to either ask for more players or get traded

Change/Improve replays.
Right now, I'll make an awesome play that involved some combo of a spin move to a bounce pass to a fade away shot, but the replay will show only show the last second of the shot. I wanna see the whole thing, not just the ball getting released.
Also, right now a player might do an awesome layup or dunk but the camera will zoom in and only show the hands of the player on the hoop. It looks shit.

Adding more depth of field element would be cool if you wanna get fancy. Super Slow motion on soaring dunks would be cool too.

The game is beautiful. Let the replays show the animations and sequences.

Speaking of replays, echoing something I said on last week's Podcast, I'd really like to be able to trigger them on demand without pausing the game, similar to the R3 function in NBA Live. The KIA Slam Cam and other replays in NBA 2K are great - aforementioned issues with length aside - but it'd be nice to be able to manually cue them up.

Also, more angles. I want to be able to make stuff like the trailers, but there are angles that are used in those trailers that are impossible for us to get.

Ah yes, the angles the camera snaps to in Instant Replay are somewhat restrictive.

I don't know if you guys watch the Drew League because i would like something like that in the game. Like when its the off season you have the option to sim and move on and play another season or play in the Drew League. Hoping instead of having to do it our selves they should take all the replays they show during the game and make a mini movie and label whos the guy thats scoring the basket. I also would like to see us play with and against other NBA players like join Nick Young,James Harden,Demar Derozan and other NBA players (who plays in the Drew League) instead of playing against other my players. Thats just me. ^ Thats what i mean if you don't know what im talking about.

They should make winning the championship a bigger deal in terms of presentation. For years winning the chip has felt a little empty. Winning the title is THE ULTIMATE GOAL. It's what every team is trying to achieve, but when you win it it just shows you the finals MVP and then it goes to the offseason. It's kinda like "oh.... okay..". It's boring and empty.

At least add some sort of presentation (white house thing was crap). Like maybe a magazine cover with the team photo on it. Or some sort of animation mashup with the team's best 3 players talking to the media + highlights of plays. Something.

Also, improve the sense of "making history" in the game. For me that is the whole appeal/purpose of MyLeague modes - to make history. The history of the league should be deep and easily accessible. It should be a primary element of the game, and it should be incorporated into the core of how the game works.

It also might be time for a new user interface. It's been the same for like 8 years or something. It's feeling stale. Maybe change the main screen from the calander to some sort of home page that gives you all the information/statuses of your team? W/L record, chemistry, leading point getters, upcoming games, media storylines (real media, not twitter!), player developments, coach reports, league leaders, players of the week, hot teams, cold teams, there's heaps of stuff.

After you win a championship, show a bunch of screens/lists/stats that show the historic relevance of winning that championship. Kinda like the draft lottery stats in 2k16 lottos from that female presenter.

I.e. "This is [team]'s [x]th championship."
"This is their first championship."
"This is their 3rd championship in 10 years".
+ player accolades reviews. Team leaders in certain stats. Best players' statlines throughout the season. Major storylines that happened with that team throughout the season(but not twitter!!!)
Make it feel historically significant! Facilitate the narrative

There should be a section in MyLeague/MyGM that you can pull up via the nav menu called "internet" or "media" or "network" or "Public relations" or something that allows you to view 3 things:

- Your email / messages. (private interactions with players, staff and media members to organize meetings, press conferences & events)
- Media / Headlines (I.e. ESPN type headlines, articles/interviews, major narratives and rumours, what players & coaches are saying in press conferences. this should be integral)
- Twitter / Social Media

^ this should be an integral hub of the MyGM navigation

You should be able to react to major headlines / hold press conferences about major headlines.

Refer to a game called Football Manager to use as inspiration. They do it PERFECTLY.

I really hope the devs try to incorporate NVIDIA's new Ansel technology. Can you imagine how popular the screenshot posts would become?

Don't know what Ansel is? Check out the link below.

While it would be possible for PC version, it would be limited players with (roughly) GTX 760 or better.

Not possible for consoles at all as they run on weaker GPU and it's AMD of course.

In the team stats, Defensive Rating is ranked the wrong way. A lower defensive rating is supposed to be higher ranked.

Only a small issue but i hope it's fixed for 2k17

Re: Official NLSC Wishlist for NBA 2K17

Postby Dee4Three on Thu May 19, 2016 6:42 am

Hi all,

Sorry this is a little all over the place. You will see that most of my wishlist revolves around gameplay, because that is what matters the most.

Here is my wishlist (top 20)

1. Better lighting: The arenas for the most part are so dark, when the game is viewed on TV it doesn't look like that (With the Exception of Madison Square Garden and Barclays, but atleast the court itself had the right brightness). I do think that NBA Live 16 got that part right, the courts on Live have good lighting.

2. Better Atmosphere: It feels like the crowd isn't even there until the last couple minutes of the game. During the game, you basically have a silent crowd, and every now and than a High School type cheer (It literally sounds like a high school gymnasium). The great thing about NBA 2k14 was the crowds reactions, the amount of times they reacted, etc. Bring back NBA atmosphere, that is another thing that Live seemed to get better.

3. Less foot planting: Foot planting is realistic, we get it. But when it becomes unrealistic its a problem. So many times a player goes into a move, and there are so many animations it ruins the flow of the move, or it just looks awkward. I feel like NBA 2k14 Next Gen and NBA 2k15 was more realistic in this regard.

4. Bring back the spin move into a dunk from 2k13: Best features in NBA 2k13 is the double tap of the B button to go into a spin dunk/spin shot or spin layup, or double tapping X to use a euro step. It gave the user complete control. Even when the Spin move into a layup/shot worked in NBA 2k16 (Before a patch destroyed it) it still never allowed us to do the spin move into a dunk, it restricted it to layups. Of course only certain few players would be allowed to do the spin into a dunk portion (Like Blake Griffin, Shawn Kemp, young Amare Stoudamire, etc). But you get the point.

5. Fix the spin move issue: When backing in at one of the elbows, if you do a quick spin (Not rotating the joystick, just faking one way while backing in, than going the other way), you get by your guy MOST of the time. It is overpowering, and can easily be completed with most if not all players on HOF difficulty. Nothing with the sliders fixes it, and it’s even easier if you isolate your player. The computer doesn’t seem to have the programmed knowledge on how to combat it. There have been similar problems with 2k games in the past, but this year it seems the most overpowering.

6. Fix the crazy momentum swings: I, like many others, feel like the game is “scripted” sometimes. I am not saying predetermined, it just doesn’t have a natural feel. Momentum swings happen, YES, fact. However, sometimes the teams for whatever reason stop playing defense all together, allowing a bevy of layups/dunks/open shots. This has nothing to do with fatigue, it has nothing to do with the team you are using either, its in the games engine. It is really frustrating to be playing a solid game of basketball, then suddenly your team stops playing defense. We cannot control all 5 guys on the floor, it’s impossible. Defensive rotations are slow, the computer AI on your team and the other team seems to get fooled SO easy, and way over play at certain points. Sometimes, I feel like I have 4 James Hardens on my team at once, because they are just not paying attention. The trail three is a HUGE problem for power forwards and centers, You can hit 20 threes a game at the top of the key with Dirk if you want because hes always open coming up the floor, and no adjustment can fix it unless you are guarding the trail at all times. Someone even made youtube videos of this issue.

7. Get it right sooner: We are almost in June, and we are getting a patch to fix an overpowering first step in the game (not yet released). This has been a decent sized problem for awhile, and it took this many months to fix it? I miss the days of the game being right at launch, it’s not fair to those people spending $60 (Sometimes $80). I understand a patch to fix little things every now and than (maybe in the first couple months), but we are only a few months away from NBA 2k17...

8. Pay better attention to the classic teams: Thank you for adding more classic teams, awesome. However, so little attention was paid to the ratings and tendancies of those players. David Robinson (even in 97-98, a very fast big guy up the floor) had very low speed and quickness, that Spurs team just crawls and is asking to get blown out every game they are used. Wilt Chamberlain, a former Olympic sprinter, is horridly slow (No, he wasn’t his youngest in 70-71, but he could certainly get up and down the floor with the best of them). I am not sure why the 90’s teams are so slow, it was a very athletic/speedy era.

9. Cyberfaces: For a former cover athlete, Allen Iverson sure gets low respect in this department. It literally looks nothing like Allen Iverson, or David Robinson (Which has been being recycled for years), and the Hakeem Olajuwon looks rushed and not much like him. I understand recycling some of the role players cyberfaces from last gen, but lets give the legends more respect. The Michael Jordan you put forth looks cross eyed and the face shape is all wrong. You have so much talent at Visual Concepts, you can do better than that. Bill Russell is way off (The head shape isn't even close).

10. Bring back more signature moves: Dunk packages and dribbling animations/celebrations aside, what happened to the other signature stuff? In NBA 2k13, I went down the middle of the lane with Karl Malone off of a pick n roll with Stockton, and he put his hand behind his head and threw it down like the real Mailman. The announcer even reacted to it. Even in NBA Fastbreak 98, they would have “with a move only he can make” when you did a move with a star player. Olajuwon had one in the post, Grant Hill had a dunk, etc. I think you get a lot of this right, but I feel like a lot of what made NBA 2k13 great (And even fastbreak 98) in this regard was redacted from NBA 2k16. Again, more emphasis on the classic teams. Maybe I am coming off as an old scrooge here, but a lot of us still use these teams a lot.

11. Fix the blocking/body steals: Some of the blocks in this game are awesome, but if I get blocked by a PG with my center one more time I might go Pervis Ellison on somebody. It is SO easy to get blocks in this game with little guys, and a lot of them are “Body blocks”, not even hand blocks. Body steals and body blocks completely kill the flow of the game. And a lot of times they are completely unavoidable.

12. Give MYTEAM mode a two player local option: Myteam mode is strictly one player, so if someone else wants to jump in and play on the same team to try and beat the mode, they cannot. I feel like this mode would get even more use if it was allowed to be played as two players.

13. Add classic courts: This isn’t something that has ever been done in a game, but how cool would this be? We already have classic jerseys, why not classic courts? Like say, I want to use the early 90’s Suns court instead of the current court. It could be an option right on the team select screen!

14. Bring back the great pause screen: Yes, this is a small thing to some, but in past NBA 2k’s when you pause the game, you could see the scoring by quarter. Points for the players on the floor, and the star of the game. Now you pause it and it’s just a menu. It was nice to be able to pause it and see that stuff, and also see how many timeouts your team had.

15. Show stats at the foul line: One of the best things in classic video games was when a player went to the foul line, and his game stats showed. It happens most of the time in real life, it should happen most of the time in the game. This is also a fantastic opportunity to show off next gen graphics of the players in a close up. Users will be more inclined to watch the player through his routine while he gets ready to shoot the free throw.

16. Remove unrealistic collisions: Seeing two players just bounce off of eachother and both hit the floor multiple times a game gets old, it's not realistic at all. Players get bailed out plowing to the hoop (because these are called defensive fouls) with these animations, and players who are suffocated in the post are bailed out with these animations. They happen so frequent.

17. Fix Clipping: Honestly, I have never seen more clippling in my life... Players bodys/hands/faces going through other players. Faces going into the floor even. It happens all game. Going in close up on replays is not pleasant. For next gen graphics, it is shocking that this is a problem.

18. Tweak shooting motions: A little herky jerky since NBA 2k14 next gen, I am not sure what happened. But a lot of the shot animations just look... odd, and feel odd. I call it the Gumby effect. It's not really smooth (With the exception of a few players).

19. Fix or remove protected shot: This is a huge problem in my opinion, any time a player is in front of a shooter (even after the patch) your offsensive player does a crazy fadeaway that has about a 2% chance of going in. And height doesn't matter, this happens when Im using say... Aldridge and Dellavadova comes to guard me. It's not realistic by any means, protected shots can exist but in moderation. And they should have a higher percent chance of going in depending on who is shooting it, and who is playing defense.

20. Classic teams choices: I guess I am confused on some of these choices (Have been for years). The 94-95 knicks instead of the 93-94 Knicks? (The 93-94 Knicks made the finals..), the 97-98 Jazz instead of the 96-97 Jazz? (Malone won MVP in 96-97, they were younger and also made the finals in that year), the 84-85 Sixers (without Barkley mind you) instead of the 82-83 Sixers that won the NBA title with an MVP Moses Malone? Those are just some examples. Other than those fixes, I am guessing a few new classic teams will be added. I'd like to see the 13-14 Spurs (yes recent, but relevant and easy to add because you can fill out the roster with no fakes...), the 94-95 Spurs (David Robinsons MVP season, and you already have Rodman/A. Carr/T. Cummings/Avery Johnson/Vinny Del Negro etc who have already agreed to be in the game, the 94-95 Rockets (Championship team.. with Drexler), the 96-97 Rockets (If Barkley agrees to be in 2K17... crossing my fingers), the 92-93 Suns (Barkley MVP season.. if he agrees to be in the game), the 10-11 Mavericks (Dirks only championship!), the 05-06 Nets (Kidd/Carter/Jefferson... cmon!), the 06-07 or 07-08 Nuggets (Just for pure nostalgia, purely a selfish request because I loved that team), the 66-67 Warriors (Rick Barry is already available in MYteam, I wonder if you could get enough for that roster). Certainly the 08-09 Lakers. I am not expecting that all these could be added/or changed, that would be foolish of me. Just ideas.

Thanks for reading!

Wish list:

Having a controller disconnect during the game makes it so you cant use controller until you restart 2k. Literally no sense to have this functionality, and should have been fixed in the first patch.

The extreme amount of times you have to wait for timeouts, inbounding the ball, halftime, basically every single stoppage of play has an unskippable cutscene that gets old after the first hour of gameplay

MyGm and MyLeague dont have simple rules from the NBA such as veterans minimum and protected draft picks.

Jerseys in Play Now Online should be forcibly shown there is absolutely no scenario in which a game should have two identical white jersey teams. I had one today where neither player even changed jersey it was just both white ingame. SO DUMB.

Stop making content for MyTeam and focus on the real game, I will never pay for VC

Dont let Spike Lee anywhere near MyCareer ever again, this was by far the worst one, I didnt even get one career past the first season. This was not MyCareer by any stretch of the imagination it was Freqs Career

Spin moves are 100% of the time either a steal or a bucket no in between

He means online. If your controller disconnects, it will work fine in offline modes like MyLeague, but not multiplayer games. It's very annoying. It happened in 2K15 too.

It does sound more like a bug than an intentional design choice, but either way, certainly worth mentioning.

Huh, interesting. Like Andrew said, it definitely sounds like a bug anyway.

Never happened to me online (I play with cable online).

1) Directional passing flat out doesnt work. 50% of the time it will go to the wrong person and its not possible to pass to someone who is behind another person without selecting them manually and taking extra time.

2) VIP stats only show your Win Loss and PPG, while you can see an opponents entire tendencies and hot zones and stuff when you play them online. But there is no way possible for you to see your own stats.. What??

3) My own players are far more efficient at setting screens than the CPU, e.g. If im defending someone taking the ball up court and my slow ass center is still taking his sweet time up court, the ball handler can use my center as a screen, and its literally BETTER than a real CPU screen because you just get stuck and there is no animation

4) Every single timeout called by either yourself, or the CPU = 7 seconds of watching your players move to the bench

5) Every inbound pass you are sitting there hitting A 50 times until the inbounder decides he can finally pass it in even though its been in his hands for 5 seconds. And before this part you have to wait for the ref to finally pass it to the inbounder and ref always takes his time.

6) Every break in action to see some stat chart even if the chart doesnt show it will still be on some random camera angle and wont skip the actual waiting, it only skips the showing of the chart which makes no fuckin sense

7) Essentially every single stoppage of play results in an unskippable animation that Ive already seen hundreds of times.

8) Play now Online doesnt force players to show jerseys, and so if you pre choose a jersey and dont show it, theres no way to know and you can end up both being white jerseys and thats the worst experience.

9) Removing the ability to react to an opponents pick in Play Now Online. Since you can no longer change your team after seeing what the other team is, everyone either pre picks the best teams or loses with a non elite team.

10) MyGm and MyLeague need improvements, very small things such as Veterans minimum contracts, and Protected picks simply do not exist in the 2k universe.

11) AI doesnt work at all. in no way shape or form does the AI play anything other than extremely simple basketball unless you call a play. On a 2 to 1 fastbreak? sounds like an easy bucket! You pass to your other player and instead of running and catching he stands still and catches it instead. Pretty sure this mechanic is literally random theres no way to know if he will keep running or stand still

12) Defensive AI also is nonexistent, defenders will literally just walk away from someone on the 3 pt line without being told to double team some random trash player who doesnt need a double team

13) Turbo cheese means you either let the CPU guard and give up easy buckets on the pick and roll or you get blown by because its not possible to guard turbo cheese

14) There are a small selection of hairstyles, and we cant even choose hairstyles that are already in the game. Not to mention that anyone with a new hairstyle since summer 2015 hasnt been updated Allen Crabbe looks retarded he would be 10x more fun to play with the blonde hair

15) MyCareer story is dog shit garbage, not one person thought this is what you meant by You Are The Story, with 1 single choice the entire time. fuck off 2k

16) MyCareer doesnt allow draft classes so you always play with ficitional players, also doesnt have GM sliders and default 2k is unrealistic with resigning players, so everyone is on a new team after their contract is up

17) Having to set my settings every single online game. No idea how you cant just save my settings and camera angle and not default them back every single game. Makes literally no sense

18) MyGM and MyLeague dont take your default settings into account, so you have to change all the rules every time you make a new league instead of it just taking the rules you have set regularly.

19) Getting stuck in animations, A lot of times I will find my player slowly walking up court celebrating while my opponent just runs the ball past him. **MY CONTROLLER ACTIONS ARE NOT SUGGESTIONS**

Core-level player attributes should increase as the season goes on, not just all at once in the offseason.

Various factors should come into play whether a player reaches his ceiling potential (or stays at his floor potential): team staff (development), playing time (experience), health (no/less injuries), as well as their natural upside.

PLEASE NBA 2K DEVELOPMENT TEAM CAN YOU HAVE A LOOK AT THIS WISHLIST should be very easy for you guys to complete those things;) please 2k guys make it happen for nba 2k17 ;) please

My Career mode -option to use custom rosters like when you start any other modes, adjust game sliders, settings.
MYGM feauture that we had in past to talk about roster moves to improve team success, minutes, contract extensions, chemistry issues, free agency..Let us record our voice for my player, let us use cm for height and kg not American measures only.
if my player is star of the team let us recruit superstar or allstar free agents in free agency period please.
other huge thing when we create players with height from 6'6- 6'9 6'10 I want to see option to choose which position I will play for my career not cpu will tell me which positions I have to play because it depends on player skills, playing style which position he is able to play body weight and other aspects that's realistic like in real life Paul George is 6'10 guy who have SF, GUARD skills some players are 6'10 but play like a big guys because they are heavy and can't dribble those are difference so I expect to see that in nba 2k17 please.
LOCK GUARD DRIBBLE PACKAGES for Big guys if I AM 6'9'6'10 and choose to be true PF lock GUARD dribble packages please.
Game Visuals- please bring back nba 2k11 lightning it was really realistic arenas looked amazing player skin tone as well ;)
ANIMATIONS FOR NBA 2K17 -please use old nba 2k14 dribbling mechanics system it was more natural now that we have 3 signatures for each player available will be even realistic I don't know why you guys had to change to nba 2k16 system it's horrible players are very heavy and very slow that's not realistic.
ATTRIBUTES -Agility rated from ( normal, average, quick) because they are different size guys with diferent weight and body types if I create player who is 6'9, 6'10 it doesn't mean I am PF, OR CENTER.. the speed and quickness rating should be measured of weight if I am 6'10 like paul George small weight I don't want to see my player slow and slow when dribble those things should be realistic...or if I have speed 83 I don't want to see big guys can keep up with my if they speed is 45 like it is now in nba 2k16 if my player is quicker please fix this 2k I love you guys so please.
ATTRIBUTE-FLoor potential depending on team success playing minutes, if they don't deal with injurys ,,so that will affect player overall boost or decrease or will stay same for two seasons if player is playing good, get's minutes overall, after season will go up but maybe with 1, 2 points because not every player can become allstars or superstars that would balance the game to make sure that 10 generic created guys in draft are not all superstars some of them are busts some of them stars.
Availability to use sleeves headbands in all modes for your players please I don't understand why u guys locked this option in nba 2k16 please make those things available...
FEATURE-NEW FEATURE U CAN INTERACT WITH ANY PLAYER WHILE U PLAY THE GAME INCLUDING OPPOSING TEAM example I am playing my career I have Kinect...at some point in game I got switch to some superstar let's say Lebron James I can say yo lebron you now I will score on you easy or I dunk on you and cpu can respond...like cmon rook if I am rookie or u will see smacking floor with hands and scream c'mon show me what you got boy .... and if I score ..you can choose taunts( friendly or arrogant) this would make a game very realistic.
you can also call out your teammates if they are lazy on defense like screaming who is going to guard your man or c#mon work it baby d your man up stop slacking....or very harsh things like get your weak ass on weak side help me out or you can warn if screen is coming ,,,behind you when some one tries to strip teammate stuff like that would make nba 2k17 most realistic game ever.
THE BIGGEST FEAUTURE WOULD BE SAVE YOUR BEST PLAYS DURING MYCAREER LIKE IN REAL LIFE WHEN YOU RETIRE YOU CAN SEE YOUR BEST PLAYS IN HIGHLIGHT REAL MAYBE 20 PLAYS IN HIGHLIGHTREAL THAT WOULD BE AMAZING .

Absolutely. There needs to be some attribute in the game to allow the CPU and users alike to make difficult and normally unwise shots with certain players.

Yeah thats why JR Smith would have the bronze badge and Curry and Klay would be gold. Obviously JR is not going the same impact as Curry and Klay. They would make it where it is more difficult for JR to release his skill. If you give him the badge, he will still take poor shots miss or make. :D

FIFA-like training system during the season for MyLeague and MyGM. Players like CJ McCollum started at 70 something rating this season and ended up at 80 something. Almost a +10 growth. This is impossible to achieve in 2K for the moment. During the season, if your player is playing well, you get a maximum of +1 to his rating. The big growth is possible only at the end of the season. We need dynamic rating changes DURING the season, just like in real life.

It shouldn't happen too frequently and with too many players, though. Or at least, add a slider to control it, as with other elements of MyLEAGUE.

Agree. If you are familiar to the FIFA games, their training system has a number of slots. You have to chose whether you use those slots on the same players over and over again(therefore have a big overall increase but only for those players), or you use the slots on different players almost all the time(as a result, more player will improve, but the growth won't be significant). It looks like a fair system to me.

Agreed. And if they implement this, then there should be an equal opposite on either side, i.e. people lose ratings during the season too, be it through injury or just a slump in form.
Which reminds me, 2k should implement "form" into 2k. Soccer games have correctly been doing this for years. I don't know why it never carried over into basketball games. Every athlete goes through peaks and valleys of form.

2 NEW BADGES: P&R STOPPER + DEFENSIVE COG

With the modern NBA becoming more about pick&rolls and sophisticated defensive switching/rotating schemes, there's now 2 key badges that are missing:
  • P&R STOPPER: A badge for players who are particularly adept to defending the pick&roll
  • DEFENSIVE COG: And a badge for players who are particularly locked in when it comes to a being an effective cog within a team's defensive rotation scheme. I.e. being uber aware on constant switches etc. It's a huge element in today's NBA

Be great to have those in 2k17. Players who can defend either the roller or the ball handler in the pick and roll (think Winslow, WCS, Draymond, Adams, T.Thompson, etc) are a hugely valuable and sought after asset today. And good defense today is now all about how much of a well-oiled defense the team is as one unit (quick switches,rotations,etc), so having players that are more aware in this element is key too.

2 NEW "DYNAMIC" ATTRIBUTES

Form & Experience.

I've noticed a trend where people have to manipulate a players' attributes in order to give them a lower or higher overall rating. In reality the thing that really changes is their playing time. In a league where opportunity = production, and more minutes = opportunity, this isn't really a realistic way to go about it. Just because CJ McCollum got more minutes last year doesn't mean we should bump his athleticism up 10 points. He has the same athleticism as always.

So my solution is to add 2 new attributes that are wildly dynamic throughout the season that affect the overall rating: Form & Experience.

Form is pretty self explanitory. You could also call it "rhythm". You could also call it "confidence". (Actually i think confidence might be the better term). It is completely dynamic, so it can change from 25 to 80 in the space of a couple of weeks. Various things should affect it: player personalities, team chemistry, injuries, good games, bad games, staff comments to the media, etc. "Form" should have a significant affect on the overall rating. It should fluctuate below the core overall rating as well as above.

Then the Experience rating is based on how many minutes a player has played in his career. The more experience a player has, the less he is affected by the "form" swings. The more stablized it becomes. The less susceptible the player is to dropping in confidence/rhythm.

^ So then these two new dynamic attributes work together in tandem as a way of managing a player's consistency.
So we can change "offensive and defensive consistency" attributes, back to awareness.

i really hope 2k focused on plain ol' basketball fundamentals and tuning gameplay. i hope they tackled legacy issues, and addressed the clunky player movement and sticky animations on the perimeter. driving to the basket in this game can be so frustrating because of the clunkiness... or maybe i'm just bad at it.

i'd also like my teammates to be smarter on defense.

HOT/COLD METERS

There's an advantage and disadvantage to every strategy in the NBA. One of the advantages to isolation plays is that it's a low turnover risk play, and it can be useful for taking advantage of smaller defenders. The disadvantage is that it doesn't put as much pressure on the overall team defense and that it can make your teammates go cold / out of rhythm because they're not involved in the offense (think Ibaka in OKC). Isolation is generally considered a bad strategy for the overall lack of team involvement. Because as we know, it's much harder to defend 5 players in sync than 1.
It would be cool to have the latter element reflected in the NBA.

Bring back effective dribble moves, but make it so that the decision for a person to play iso ball sacrifices the offensive rhythm of their teammates. Maybe have little metres above the player's head.

The less touches/shots a player gets, the more cold he gets. The more touches/shots, the more hot. Obviously badges factor into this too, but the effectiveness of team ball should be reflected.
