The mode is funner this year for sure. It's just that the trades make it not fun after you play enough games.

The more I play it , the more frustrated I get. Never had it with 2k11. Passing and defence are major f*ck up this year. Better do not start on commentary. It makes me sick already and I played only 10 games yet.
Maybe its just because im still learning the game, but as i said it was not the case with 2k11.

In asocciation mode stats are f*kd up as well. Some teams gets 80 rbs a game or 50 blk a game. O players +/- is 54 and so on.

Fastbreaks 2 on 1 , to many times the ball gets stollen. Bullshit.

The fastbreak is just ridiculous. Unless you make a pass to your teammate while the defender is 2 feet away from you it will get picked off over and over again.

So my created player is a 6'1" three-point specialist point guard. Who is shooting 20% from three and plays 90% of his minutes at the 2 getting raped defensively due to being 6-8 inches shorter than the guy he's trying to defend. What the hell?

EDIT: Finally got moved out of the 2 spot...to the 3. This is ridiculous.

I know what you mean. My 3pt specialist SF (worst ball handler I've ever created so far) had to play PG for quite some time (inevitable turnovers really ruined my performances during that games). Oh I forgot to mention that I played in backcourt alongside Monta Ellis who played SG...

First time playing My Player?

At least the minutes per game finally make some sense this year. Even if it still has the "dominating the game like Wilt? LOL UR SITTING THE ENTIRE FOURTH" thing.
skotas28 wrote:O players +/- is 54 and so on.

I actually figured this out, it's a hilarious bug. You can see it clearly in My Player/CAL, if you finish a game, your +/- will be accurate on the player card, if not, it will be insane like +80, it, like some of the other stuff is broken if you aren't on the court when the game finishes.

Thank god this issue only popped up last year after working perfectly in 2K10 so they had time to fix it! (Oh signature highlights how I miss you. I demand to see every single one of my baskets and assists after ever game!)

Nope, but I didn't play it enough last year to really be bothered by playing the 2 all game.

Also, blocking a shot right back to the shooter results in 'Blocked Shot' and 'Allow Offensive Rebound', which cancel each other out almost exactly.

before you release your shot, flick the shot stick to another direction to bank it off the backboard.

Just want to mention again that little ad that plays in the left corner. It's the one with the players highlighting an upcoming game.

When playing 2K12 am I supposed to be watching a game, or playing a game? The presentation is mixed between the two. The ad even happens when presentation is set with announcers off, and other tweaks to help it seem more like playing the game.

Is there a way to turn off the defensive tendency of the AI to help out leaving a shooter open?

coach settings do that I believe. I think there was a feature or something on operation sports about it.

Just found out the hard way they they removed the Situation game mode from the game this year (choose time left on the clock, score, etc). Not the must used mode ever but still missed....

I've discovered that you don't need to replay the entire game when a completed NBA's Greatest game has been marked as incomplete again. Just enter the game and exit it straight away and it'll once again be marked as completed and the teams unlocked. Still a sloppy bug for the game to have been shipped with, though.

Man, I'm so bummed out! I had an awesome game last night with Dallas against OKC. Westbrook was ripping through the defense all game long until he fouled out mid 4th quarter. With him out, I came back from a 14 point-deficit and cut their lead to 3 with about 12 seconds to go, but no timeouts. So naturally, I foul Maynor who surprisingly misses both free throws. Marion grabs the board, passes it to Kidd who paces down the court. I make a quick hesitation move and penetrate to the rim when I notice Dirk making a beautiful cut through the zone, using an off-ball screen by Marion and heading for the arc. Imagine the gleeful smile on my face. The clock is down to 2 seconds when i pass the ball to Dirk. AND WHAT DOES THE STUPID FUCKER DO??? While the pass is in the air, he stops running towards the three-point-line just a foot short. When he catches the ball, I desperately try to reach three point land, but it's about 0.5 seconds too late when he shoots ( and -to add to my frustration- makes ) the 3. Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK!? I thought that momentum was so important in 2K12. Then why in Jesus H. Christ's name does the guy awkwardly stop running when he doesn't even need to? My timing on the pass was spot on. If everything would have gone like it should have (I've been doing those in-and-outs a lot lately, works like a charm), I'd have been fine with just missing the shot and therefore losing the game. But this is bullshit. I swear, this game will never stop fucking with me.

Rant over. I still love 2K12 with growing passion, but it's moments like this that make me wonder why I don't just play the Sims 3 instead.

Anyone else seeing CPU with really bad shot selection/time management late in games & late in shot clock? Maybe it's just the Greatest mode, which I was playing all last night whilst waiting for updated rosters, not sure.

Definitely a nice change, but it doesn't fix all. Let's say a sg has a post up play with a big spreading the floor. Now he gets traded to a team where there are no bigs that spread the floor. leaving Joel Pryzbylla spotting up for three.
