I do like the game, but one of the only complaints I have is the way most Live Run 5v5 matches feel. Everyone's sprinting around, and possessions last like 5 seconds before a shot goes up: Usually by someone already over 90 overall rating, ha-ha! :lol: I guess it's just players capitalizing on others errors, but sheesh. In addition to this, in a local game (not online) the input seems to hesitate. It could deliberately designed, because I've noticed I'm able to quickly "cancel" certain animations. The most common being when passing out of a shot. There's a threshold that must not be passed for it to happen of course, otherwise you'll chuck up a horrible shot anyway.

There isn't a way to scout in franchise at all. I just simmed a season. No trades unless i manually did it. And no scouting whatsoever

Yes, the delay is obvious on many of the animations. It would be great if they patched that, the feel is everything.

Alternate "statement" jerseys are now available. Also seems to play a little slower.

Adding them extra jerseys didn't half make a difference to visual satisfaction from the game imo

I'm definitely flattered if I influenced it in any way. Of course, there is always journalist Ian Begley. ;)

Anyone else completely overthrow simple entry passes into the post? It's like half a bad pass, but the post player makes no effort to catch the ball.

Passing needs to be looked at, there are far to many turnovers off simple passes

It's definitely improved, but I still cringe every time a post player is being fronted. I send a quick prayer and then I hope it doesn't get passed right to the defender

The one thing I always loved in Live 16 was being able to drive and kick but 60% of the time it results in a turnover. A little fine tuning there end is needed.

It's a scenario where the lob pass should be a little more successful. Not to the point of cheese, ideally, but as a means of trying to get it past the defending who is fronting.

So finally got around to pick up the game for about $24 from Best Buy with GCU, played one ranked match and absolutely loved it. Does anyone like this game as much, if not more than 2K?

That being said, can you disable auto-timeouts/subs in online H2H? Is there a way to call timeouts without using the pause menu?

I'm definitely liking the improvements in this year's game. I do feel a bit let down by the modes though, particularly Franchise.

The only mode I care about is franchise mode and it needs work, cpu trades and basic roster management needs to be patched in. By roster management even just being able to change jersey numbers would be a big plus.
