Gotcha. :)

I've been passing along feedback so far (including the issue with Bogdan Bodganovic), so with any luck, we'll start seeing improvements.

It was Friday, but then the last couple of updates have been earlier in the week, so I'm not sure now.

I think we can take it as read that he didn't sit for a face scan, so a less than 100% accurate face is understandable...and preferable to being completely wrong, of course.

Disappointed to finally get some time to play and there isn't a roster update, no Jack on knicks no Nelson on Pelicans no James on Suns no Bledsoe trade it really is sad that they still have this same problem 4 years in after returning and missing a year.

Agreed. The updates were coming through regularly, but now it seems there's a hold up. Hopefully they start again soon.

Well, they still don't have Eric Bledsoe on the Bucks and Greg Monroe on the Suns.

I started a franchise with my Lakers, so it is really frustrating not being able to edit anything, especially since I'm set to play the Suns (game two of the season) with Bledsoe likely going to torch me.

LOL.

Other than that, rosters look pretty good. Just kind of surprising, given that it's the 12th now. And you never know if EA is going to give up or vanish again which would really suck and make this game nearly unplayable if a big trade (trade deadline is coming) goes down. It's pretty lame that you can only make a trade for your own team in franchise. At least make that mode able to have more control.

I don't even think a roster update would affect Franchise mode? Please tell me I'm wrong. And if they do affect it (which I hope they do), will moves the actual Lakers make happen for mine? Or am I immune to it?

Update: I noticed Brandon Knight was playing. I started franchise mode with "pre-existing injuries" ON, so he should be out. Dude probably won't play again, given how he keeps getting hurt teams ain't likely to take a chance. Phoenix is eating his contract this year. Also, I can't hit a 3PTer with Kyle Kuzma. This is a problem. Not sure what his skill is in the game, but he can shoot them in real life.

Roster updates affect new Franchise games, but not games already in progress, as has always been the case.

Well, dang it. I initially interpreted your message as my franchise being updated. EA did an update 11/15, but looks like for my franchise mode Bledsoe will always be a Phoenix Suns player. Crap. Sucks that I can't change this. I could restart, but I've already played two games. And then there'll likely be more trades this season too. Why would EA do that? Jeez...

To build on that, it has to be a separate experience, since one of the concepts of franchise modes is being able to make your own trades. If updated rosters were applied to a franchise game, that would all be overwritten. You can get a new starting point when updated rosters come through, but games in progress won't be affected, because otherwise there'd be conflicting data.

What NBA Live needs to do, as it continues to expand upon the franchise experience and other modes, is to implement tools similar to MyLEAGUE where you can manage the league and make trades for other teams, for those who'd like to keep their franchise game updated according to the real NBA. It'd still have to be done manually, though.

Didn't they do this with dynamic season in live 10? I never played it because I don't care about updated rosters since I always do a fantasy draft

That was kind of the concept with Dynamic Season, yeah. You could play an entire season with dynamically changing rosters, and go back and replay games to change the result, then play through your own Playoffs according to the overall results. Nifty idea.

So are they like updating the current season statistics? Because honestly I'd rather have updated rosters than Mike breen correctly telling me a player is shooting 74% from the line instead of 70%

I'd assume it's more about ratings and Synergy data, but yeah, we need the lineups to be accurate as well.

With Patch 1.07, the rosters have been updated through November 15th. There hasn't been any transactions since then (except for Robert Covington signing a veteran extension), so the rosters should be pretty up to date.

Nice thoughts on how to fix franchise mode, no doubt! I might just restart my Lakers franchise. We'll see. Gonna check out the update tonight, maybe play some The One. I'm on the Twolves as a defensive PG. Pretty fun playing with KAT, Wiggins, etc.

Thanks for the reply, Andrew. It would be huge if they do that. The player models several legends are in the game already. It will be good if we can use them as part of the regular roster and not just the LUT.

I don't think they're going to do anything like that until next year, but I would definitely like to see some historical content outside of LUT. It's not going to be as comprehensive as what NBA 2K has done, but it any extra content is worthwhile.

Are ratings based purely on league data/stats as OKC Ferguson 3pt rating of 68 is too low IMHO. I know his season stats support that rating but it doesn't make it right.

Sorry but, he is shooting .286% from three this season, which is about 8% below the league average. And, this is his only season to base it off of, and.. he is taking 2 per game.

The rating actually makes sense, for now. I think they got that right.

No need to apologise. I know the kid can shoot. Often he's getting those shots cold & in garbage time. And we know playing with Westbrook never helps matters. Over time his % will come up to & exceed the league average.

I just never trust NBA Live ratings for fringe players. If dynasty was any good I'd just edit applicable ratings that I don't agree with.

I can attest to it being tough when a player simply isn't performing well, but they have demonstrated they have the skill. Sometimes you can fudge a rating slightly, but then it looks and feels statistically inaccurate.

I don't trust 2K's either, fringe players often get the copy and paste treatment for 2k (like an unathletic guard having Zach Lavines dunk package). The amount of attributes/tendencies that are off on 2k are ridiculous, and I am assuming is a similar issue with Live.

In regards to playing with Westbrook, I disagree with that comment, and have watched a lot of Thunder games this season. When Ferguson started games, he got shots up early (And they wouldn't fall), he had one stand out game as a starter.

He is young and will improve I think, I'd like to see him put on a little more size and get stronger.

Definitely needs to get stronger. He struggled in Australia last year with physicality but he's got a shooter's stroke so he'll be right

Seems like for non superstar players, their way of keep the overall rating down is by just keeping all ratings down evenly from where they'd be if they were a bigger name.

Josh Hart is known for his defense if anything and my god all of this ratings were low. Even now on Ultimate Team his ladder card with better stats only has like a 74 in def.

3 pt rating is a problem though because if it's too low, it's just impossible to hit 3s with them even if they hit em in real life and even if the devs try to show that with a decent rating. A dude rated in the low 70s in 3s is probably 33% irl but can't hit a 3 in the game for his life outside of corner 3s

That is another trick too, docking a few ratings points so the overall looks better and there's room for improvement. Overall Ratings, though a necessary evil, have a lot to answer for.

Looks like the issue with custom rotations/minutes not being saved has been resolved.
