NLSC Greatness in 2K PRO-AM

Postby Kenny on Sat May 14, 2016 8:02 pm

So lately myself and a few forum members have been playing quite a bit of 2K PRO-AM. Our record is rubbish, but we're still having a lot of fun.

I just thought I'd put this here in case other people want to join us (or even play us) at any point. It would be great to have more of a community involvement in the mode, since it is probably my favourite online mode in NBA 2K16 (even with all the cheese).

If anyone is interested in getting involved, send me a PM. I do have quite a busy schedule at the moment with my studies, but I am coming up to a break fairly soon.

Looks like I'm in the first video, too.

It's definitely been fun to "hang out", chat and play. The fact that we lost to a team with a Crying Jordan meme on their court still burns me up inside, though.

Fixed.

Talking to your teammates and the general camaraderie tend to make the mode for me. A lot needs to be fixed with the mode itself, but it's definitely more bareable when you play with people you trust.

And yeah... stupid crying meme. Can't believe we lost to those guys twice.

Third time's the charm, if we run into them again. I mean, I'm a 73 overall, now. Practically superstar status!

I added a couple of team highlight videos and an individual one as well. With the NLSC Greatness potentially fielding a team on both Friday and Saturday, hopefully there will be more to come soon.

The latest win has been added, as well as the legendary JaoSming highlight package.

Last night was frustrating to say the least. Match ups took a while to find and we played the same cheesy team 3 times. The worst part is, we were legitimately in every game at the end of the first quarter, but we always had a huge run go against us. I like to think we are a far better team than the overall suggests.

Kevin, win-loss record added to the first post (all 19 losses were 2K cheese! Exclamation points!)

zzcoolj21, with our current lineups, you would probably have to play power forward, since my guy is a 6'5 small forward. If that's okay with you, you're welcome to join us at some point if there's an available spot (we had 5 players last night for the first time).

Frustration didn't help either in last night's games. After playing that team a few times and getting rattled, we probably weren't making our best decisions.

Added a video of the 5 of us playing well.

zzcoolj21, let it be known that I fully condone "kick ball violations" against cheesy big men in 2K PRO-AM.

Andrew, I think it was a factor as well. Looking back through the footage, I think we're better in a halfcourt setting. When we try and rush things, that's when we get in trouble. We (myself particularly) also need to kick the ball out more when it gets into the post. I'd be interested to see how we play if we adopt a mindset that we will never get shooting fouls called for us, because in reality, it takes a lot for us to get shooting fouls.

Kevin, you're on thin ice. We take our 2K PRO-AM very seriously, as you'd see with our "Take This W!" scorer's table banner.

Last weekend was one of the more frustrating runs, as our win-loss ratio got blown out even further. We get absolutely hammered when we try and drive to the hoop and get basically no fouls, while the other teams generally spam the three point line. Perhaps it's a sign of the current state of the NBA? Who knows... all I know is, online play is increasingly frustrating because of it.

We had zzcoolj21 join us for our last game of the night. By then we were incredibly frustrated (hence why I intentionally fouled out of the game), but I managed to record his first basket for us, which was actually a pretty good team play. I just hope he doesn't hate us because of how terribly we played :lol:

Also, I put the 8th win video as unlisted. Still not quite sure what context they're using their logo in.

Picked up another couple of wins by default on Friday night. For some reason, those two teams just didn't want to play us. Would've liked to have full games, but we'll take the W's nonetheless.

Looking forward to NBA 2K16 coming out on PS+. I'm hoping it'll mean increased participation in 2K PRO-AM... and if I'm completely honest, I'm also hoping it means more scrub teams that we can pick up cheap wins off of :lol:

It does indeed. These days, a lot of our opponents are maxed out or at least 90+, so you'll need to upgrade your player if you haven't already. Despite a decent showing in the first game I played at 69 Overall, lately I'm finding that a 74 Overall player just doesn't cut it a lot of the time. :lol:

Speed is the killer, since I'm playing point guard. Any time my match-up is a maxed out player (or close enough), it's tough to keep pace with them, as a lot of players just sprint around in the half court. While I've rarely experienced any really bad lag, the responsiveness obviously isn't quite as good as it is offline, so when you add a drastic difference in speed ratings on top of that, so it's an even bigger disadvantage when you're trying to guard them...especially off-ball.
