Can't win with big margin (OVER 10PTS) in dynasty!!

Postby barthez on Sat Jun 20, 2015 8:55 am

Hi all,

I play dynasty mode on superstar level.

Every time I have a bigger lead e.g over 10 points in 4th quarter sudenly all my players stop scoring points even from easy positions like slam dunks or fastbreaks and bloody CPU hits one shot after another!!!

Is it a bug in this game?

I remember playing at all star level I was able to win with over 20 points margin. It does my headache because I can't gather descent amount task points and develop my roster.

Can anyone have any suggestions what should i change in settings?

Thx
barthez

It's not a bug, but it is an undesirable aspect of the comeback logic, intended to give the AI a fighting chance against a human opponent.

A viable alternative is to play on All-Star difficulty, but tweak the sliders so that the CPU has a bit more of an advantage. Also, make sure that CPU Assistance is off, regardless of the difficulty level.

In any 2k game, you can always adjust the Consistency in the sliders so they can't hit consecutive shots

Not really relevant to a question about NBA Live 2005, though.

Just saying that if there was a consistency slider like in Live, he can adjust it.

Yes, I do.

To be honest I have never tried to play on action. I will try

How many points should i tweak the sliders if I'd like to play on all-star difficulty?

I am satisfied with my current sliders, results and statistics look quite realistic.

I can't really give exact numbers, as it comes down to the results that will provide satisfactory results according to your sim tastes, playing style, and skill level. I'd suggest tweaking them by about five points at a time; enough to make noticeable improvements, while also fine tuning.

While it runs contrary to my previous advice, if you'd really prefer to leave the sliders alone, you could also try playing on All-Star difficulty with CPU Assistance on. That'll boost the comeback logic/momentum, while avoiding some of the cheesy stunts the AI pulls on Superstar difficulty.
