OK, so I simply do not want to give up on the game. I return time and time again, I want to try and fix it as much as possible for myself.
Today I started tweaking sliders myself. A lot. That's something I haven't really done before, I usually tried game difficulties and some of the top downloaded sliders from the community, but I thought, what the hell, why not.
So I started new MyGM, playing as Cavs. As a base I used Crewe's sliders from OS. Tweaked some stuff I knew I didn't like from before. During the first game I was still tweaking some stuff, mainly buffing the CPU in the second quarter.
- Game Speed - 60
- Shooting types - User timing
- Quarter Length - 12 minutes (this was big for me)
- Full playvision and having CPU coach calling plays on both ends (I think this is very important to why the game felt good)
Now onto the result of the first game:
I don't think there is much wrong in the numbers. Final score is definitely believable, the numbers seem pretty good all around. Only thing that is a bit weird are the fouls, but since I buffed the CPU, it was pretty fair. The first quarter was very one sided in that matter (before the buff).
Not many 3pt shots falling, most scoring done in the paint. Again, I consider that pretty good result. The attempts are there, but they were fairly well defended.
Box score CAVS:
LeBron had monster game, Kyrie and Love did pretty much what they're actually there to do. Some bench players did not play because New York made very nice comeback attempt in the second part of 3rd and in the 4th quarter. Actually looked very similar to some Cavs-Knicks game I watched this season, so I'm fairly satisfied.
Box score KNICKS:
Nothing jumps out at me as very bad, am I overlooking something? Like I said, I made sure to defend three pointers, so the poor shooting from deep should be caused by that.
I'll play some more games to see if this wasn't just a fluke, but the game felt good. I really think that having CPU call plays was very important to the flow of the game.
