To me, Live 18 is the best in the series. I've been editing rosters for months, then playing two 12min games (home and road) vs each team I edit, then make some final tweaks and test again.

Here are some highlights from my games vs the CPU, I always use the Pistons, some plays on defense are by AI controlled teammates. These are not dunk or game winning highlights. It's just a bunch of plays meant to showcase realistic basketball and smart ball movement by that CPU.

Highlights #1

Highlights #2

Highlights #3

Highlights #4

Spurs @ Pistons

I actually bought a copy on eBay to play again. Have you updated the roster and added rookies yourself?

Any tips you have for picking up the game again would be appreciated

I did not update rosters. My roster edits are based off of the June 2018 official rosters.

What I did for each player is drop dunk and vertical ratings - highflyers 80-83, decent dunkers 76-79, average Joe's 70-75 and do on.

Also increase Court Vision to everyone. Minimum is 70, might make it 75. Stars and Elite PG get 85 to 90s.

Also decreased rebounding. Only elite rebounders get 80-82. Decent rebounders get 76-79, etc...

Blocking - see rebounding.

Also, this game has the legacy issue every Live game had the last 20+ years -- point guard dominance. So unless it's someone like Lillard or Westbrook, for guys like Rubio I dropped layup, vertical, contested shot, drawing fouls, off dribble shot etc to very low values. This helps to balance the game.
