Just to get this straight they updated some player portraits just to have them wearing incorrect uniforms? What the hell is wrong with these people?

The worst thing is those pictures look like crap. How hard is it to get or use some high quality pictures? Jesus the NBA would probably provide them with nice action shots to use in the game.

Some of them are bad. Also, it seems that ID were changed, because I couldn't change Embiid portrait, for example.

Usually there aren't as many hold-ups with Steam compared to Microsoft and Sony, but sometimes it's the case.

Update done via Steam.
It should be ok.
One thing is that the modded folder doesn't work anymore and I think it need to be updated.

Update must have come thru, all the players that were wearing jerseys from their old teams, have been corrected with their new jerseys. I hope they fixed all the fouls and missed layups as well. Might be asking for too much.

It's about the approval process. Once it goes through to the platform, it's out of the developer's hands. If you look back at the update history for NBA 2K18 or indeed NBA 2K17, there have been patches that have come out all on the same day, within a day or two of each other, or at the same time on the consoles and a day or two afterwards on PC. If there was some revenue-driven deal in place with Sony, they'd be getting the patches well before the other platforms, each and every time. There'd likely be more consistency in the release dates for the other platforms as well (i.e. consistently a week later, for example).

If i understand you correctly

you mean the first patch update for ps4 and suspiciously after days or week almost at the same time or same day for xbone and pc it's just a bad luck of developers

if i Investigate the historic of 2K policy they know something about timing or control in content

and if i'm not mistaken years before don't know exactly when ,ps4 was the prefer console to get special content or something like this,

in other words let me wonder about the seriously of 2k.

Again, a lot of the previous patches have come through on all platforms (or at least both consoles) on the same day.

I don't know. I was playing offline and on the left bottom there was a pop up "new update necessary, go to main menu" (yellow color pop up). But I could not see anything afterwards.

I also never get to see any updates in steam (like for example in Dota, you have an update history etc.) ... so I really don't know what happened ...

Looks like Patch 6 notes were just announced.

It's November... and already 6 patches.

I'll add them to the first post, thanks for the heads up. (Y)

It's also worth noting that the Xbox One received the patch first this time. Something to keep in mind, considering the earlier allegations.

For the record, NBA Live 18 has had seven patches so far. Some of them have admittedly been fairly substantial content updates though, and things that 2K conversely seems to push through via the in-game "Updated Required" notification updates. As such, it's a little hard to compare.

In terms of the number of patches for either game, I guess it never looks good, but I'd rather fixes are pushed through regularly and as needed, instead of issues remaining unresolved for months. I also remember the days when games would only receive a couple of patches over the course of several months, and the last one ended up breaking something that was never fixed because there were no follow-up patches. NBA Live 10 is an example of that: Patch #2 messed up alley-oops and CPU opponent logic when the offensive play broke down. NBA Live 10 was a better game out of the box and after Patch #1 than it was after the second and final title update.

For me, one of the biggest problems with the NBA 2K patches is their size, at least on console. In all fairness, that's due to a need to include all of the previous updates for stability's sake, but with that in mind, it would be for the best if they ensured that each patch was a substantial update, as it's a pain to download two ~6 GB patches in the span of a month when they only include minor fixes. The other big issue is that every patch for NBA 2K seems to cause some technical problems, such as Patch 1.05 leading to random hangs in The Neighborhood and MyCAREER. It's the nature of software design, but it does feel like each patch causes more frustration. By comparison, NBA Live 18's track record has actually been pretty good in that department.

On the other hand, they're not doing a lot of tweaking to the gameplay with the patches for NBA 2K18. For better or worse, the experience has been reasonably consistent compared to last year. The nerf to zig zag cheese in Patch 1.05 was definitely welcome though. It was a very necessary fix, and they did fix it rather effectively.

At least this last update :shock:

Here are the update notes:
- Trivia will be re-enabled in the 2K Zone in MyCAREER once all consoles have received this update. If you have not yet tried it out, 2K Zone Trivia provides 25 VC for every question you answer correctly!
- Users will no longer experience a hang when attempting to read texts from Bryan in MyCAREER.
- Fixed an issue where Bryan would stop sending users texts to pick up their endorsement VC cheques in MyCAREER.
- Addressed a hang that could occur in the Gatorade Training Facility right before starting an activity.
- Addressed a case where some users were seeing their custom created shoes appearing differently in-game than how they looked in the editor.
- The camera will no longer focus on the crowd when play resumes when called right before a free throw in Pro-Am and Play Now Online games.
- Fixed a case where the playoffs would fail to advance after completing a round during an offline MyCAREER.
- Squads will now remain intact when choosing to Play Game after completing a Ruffles Tournament game.
- Michael Jordan’s tongue should now look a little more Mike-like

Or, they can get it mostly right the first time (or completely right) and stop changing the experience over and over again, or trying to make up for blunders on release and making things worse somehow (Like with 2K17).

Shocking that they could get it right in NBA 2K11 (Which was released 7 years ago) but not now.

No doubt. That'll be the subject of an upcoming feature, likely a Monday Tip-Off article.

just a heads up,

patch 6 also contained many roster tendency edits. If any have been following/implementing vannwolfhawk tendency thread over at operationsports. 2k official roster that came with patch 6 contained many many edits that vannwolfhawk was fiddling with. tendency edits effect almost all players in the roster, from what i can see.
anyways, link to page 52 of Vannwolfhawk Tendency Thread: https://forums.operationsports.com/foru ... sm-52.html

post from vannwolfhawk on page 52 of that thread about the roster edits:
vannwolfhawk wrote:I'm not sure why anyone is surprised by this. I give credit to Bed's as it looks like a ton of this was implemented throughout all of the tendencies in the new roster including 100 scales with a few things... Triple threats scaled to 100 with idle, pump & Jab's as well as 0 idle and 15 highest (although I changed that to 0-5 now),, drives scaled up, Size up's, Drive Aggression, Floaters down, stepback's at thresh point, mid range scaled, contested jumpers, Transition 3's vs spot up same scale, The ISO's scaled higher as I put them in, a ton of star players almost identical if not identical to how I have them, dish to open man redone and scaled higher, Play discipline scaled properly, Drive pull up's, Drive aggression all at 0, & face up and back down 100 scale... WOW! This is crazy! I see you bed's! Awesome stuff! You mean I just had to wait for it? Could have eliminated 2 1/2 months of work. LOL! It has to play different now... Still some things that make it off though with close and inside scales, post up's 1000x better with 100 scale, spot up mid, Drive right tendencies closer to 50, etc... But I would highly suggest trying this guys with all these things applied!

This is why these threads are great! If it can help change the game and 2k down the road everyone is better off whether its the sim crowd, casual crowd, or hardcore.... Glad we could help as a community! I just hope it's implemented to start next season out of the box...

it'll be interesting if the game plays/feels any different. seems like 2k put a bunch of effort into this roster, with some borrowed from vannwoflhawk, and some in-house tweaks.
which is good for me. as a pc player i was itching to get vanwolfhawk's xbox roster (i was slowly implementing the changes in the thread), but 2k officially updated their tendencies.

Interesting. Hopefully it'll yield some pleasing results.

i was satisfied with my sliders.
I've just made one quick game with this new update. The game runs so fast now :shock: :? It seems so arcade.
Hopefully, got a backup, but i'm not sure it's an improvement.
