Official NLSC Wishlist for NBA 2K19

Talk about NBA 2K19 here.

Official NLSC Wishlist for NBA 2K19

Postby Andrew on Sat Jan 20, 2018 8:15 pm

Alright everyone, we want to get an early start on our Wishlist for NBA 2K19, so here is our official NBA 2K19 Wishlist thread. This is the place to post constructive feedback that will be submitted to the NBA 2K Development Team; that means anything from bugs that need fixing, to features that you want to see added or improved upon, to anything else you feel would make the next iteration of NBA 2K better.

A couple of notes and important suggestions on how to give the most comprehensive and useful feedback (based on previous conversations with developers):

Important Notes & Suggestions

Please keep this stuff in mind as you're posting your ideas!

  • One suggested format is to post your top 15-20 wishes/suggestions for the game, ie. the 15-20 most important things that NBA 2K19 needs to do/add/improve upon. If you have a couple of extra points, that's fine, but try to prioritise. If you don't have that many suggestions, that's fine too; just post the feedback you have and want to share with the developers.

  • Alternatively, post your top ten or so suggestions you have for different aspects of the game, such as gameplay, game modes, presentation, features, and so on. Again, if you have less than ten, no problem. That's a strongly suggested maximum for the lists, not a minimum.

  • Make sure that you elaborate and post further details where necessary. There's no need to write an essay - there's nothing wrong with being brief, direct, and to the point - but saying things like "better gameplay" doesn't give enough feedback. Explain how you want gameplay to get better, what changes are required to see an improvement. Mention specific issues, along with relevant improvements and fixes you want to see. A few sentences or subpoints are fine, and will add clarification.

  • Be constructive! No insults, flaming or bashing in this thread. If you're not interested in providing actual feedback and discussing ways to improve the game, please move along. If you want to vent about NBA 2K18, please feel free to make use of other threads in the Forum, but this is a thread for constructive feedback only. You don't need to sugarcoat things, or hold back on talking about stuff that needs to be fixed, just don't be abusive or needlessly snarky. Explaining what you think is broken or unsatisfactory, and what you want to see changed, is useful feedback. Telling the developers they're stupid, suck, and you hate them, on the other hand, is not.

  • Lists of bugs that haven't been resolved in the NBA 2K18 title updates are also most welcome.

That's about it. Feel free to start posting your ideas and if you have any further questions, just ask. We'll be passing along all feedback, and will likely look at compiling a "Top Wishes" section as the Wishlist takes shape.

One minor improvement that would go a long way is the long distance passing. There are players like Kevin Love and Lonzo Ball that excel in full court passes, dropping them in beautifully. However, in every recent 2k game, a long distance pass often triggers a ridiculous animation that involves the recipient just flailing for an obviously catch-able pass. The resulting turnover just feels unfair. If I recall, the understanding was that this was necessary to avoid cherry picking in online games but I just don't understand that logic. Cherry picking happens in all level of basketball, from your average pick up game, to Lamelo Ball in high school, to an NBA player on a break away. If an individual has an advantage of an opening down court, I think it should be exploitable. This was just a recent issue I struggled with so it was the first thing I decided I'd voice an opinion on.

If they want to continue the way they are going with VC they need to reduce the initial cost of the game....a lot.

This Year was the last Year for me. This Game is only a vehicle to sell microtransactions. Anything other than MyLeague is unplayable!

And since most of their Target-Audience are Casualscrubs they still make a shit ton of money. They wont change anything in 2K19 and I'm not wasting any more money on it.

2K does presentation great, they make game look like NBA. My list is only really going to be negatives as they toot their own horn enough. I'm gonna keep this list quick and in no particular order:

1. Get rid of mini parachutes: I play broadcast, don't punish me for it. These create blindspots & are frustrating in close games.

2. Tune passing: I get that you don't want cheese, but I should be able to pass out of a jump to teammates a foot or two away. I should be able to throw pass down court without it flying out of bounds. I can understand if I'm trying to throw with Dwight Howard but otherwise, there are better ways to do it, passes maybe can be inaccurate when receiver has to move to catch it which allows defenders to recover. Some should be pinpoint if thrown by Lebron or Love or Lonzo or anybody starting with letter L.

3. Improve matchmaking: Others have discussed it so I will let them go into depth on it.

4. Reduce VC & micro transaction effect on game: I think only place that micro transactions have in game is in MyTeam. That's it. Stop being greedy.

5. Fix shot mechanics/timing/whether shot is contested well: if a defender is behind me I don't think it is heavily contested but hey, that's just me.

6. Improve balance in MyPlayer builds, archetypes & animations: heights, wingspan, strength, OP HOF badges. It's not easy to get balance & there'll always be stronger ones each year but playtesting will tell you that 7'3" 320lb rebounding centres are OP, especially when they can equip super quick dunk animations.

7. Improve physics/clipping/body steals etc

8. Improve layup/close shot mechanics & success: I think only contested layups should be based on timing. We tried, I think it failed. Doesn't matter what mode, MyPlayer, online, MyTeam, Play Now, Franchise, you miss inside shots & layups. Not just us, but CPU too. NBA players don't miss that many.

9. Polish, polish, polish: Squash bugs, fix legacy issues

10. Get rid of update required: Fine to pop it up, but let it disappear and re-appear after you've finished the game.

Please make the buzz from controller vibration on Xbox One lover. The controller clatters even after small initial contacts each possession. The bumper noise is alive since 2K14, I have used two different Xbox One Controllers – the same. Let’s make the vibration more gentle like NBA Live does it.

I'm not going to repeat anything I agree with that's already been posted so let's a goooooo

MyPark :

Have at least one court that is specifically for people under the overall of 70 and one for people under 80. This would give new players a reason to enjoy the mode without feeling the need to be a high overall.

Fix all the cheaters online it's not hard. (PC)

MyGM/MyLeague

Playable G-League games.

I don't mind the story but it at least some of it needs audio.

If your going to have a predetermined draft class don't have the 2 best players be bald eye sores which are a real pain to look at and just scan some random people that work for you and it would be so much better.

HD Portraits and consistent portrait updates (Why is this even an issue)

MyCareer

I like the style of this years game but if they just took a third off the prices of all the vc attribute upgrades or something like that or didn't make then ridiculously expensive when you get higher up.

Keep a similar idea to the neighborhood but Gatorade facility needs to be attribute rewarding and so does the team training facility.

1. make Jonothan Simmons a Cyberface and tattoos (it's now the 3rd season he's playing in the NBA and have just the standard body)
2. let the user decide if he wants to see the halftimeshow, ingame stats sheet/information etc.
3. make a nicer draft class at the my league

Re: Official NLSC Wishlist for NBA 2K19

Postby I Hate Mondays on Sat Mar 10, 2018 10:31 pm

I will edit this post as new ideas come to me.

1. Players going to locker rooms after some major injuries/ rejections.
2. I know you can design custom plays in the MyGM/MyLeague Coaching main menu. I want to be able to do that in any game mode, and during games.
3. Ability to turn off the player indicator - or at least a setting that makes it minimalistic and barely noticeable (something like the thin, gray circle that you can see in 2K18 beneath the teammate you are going to pass to). The game has very realistic graphics, but sometimes, I don't want that sega - '95 look in my scene given by the indicator. Any indicator should have an option to be switched off, along with some HUD elements.
5. Also on the presentation side, I'd like to have the option to watch Action Replays only during deadballs. How they are implemented now, when they are on, they can happen anytime - they are beautiful, I wouldn't turn them off, yet sometimes, it disrupts the flow of the game (the AI dunks on me and instead of being able to go on a fast break in the very first second, I have to watch the replay and boom - the whole AI team is magically in their halfcourt). So I believe the Action Replays only during deadballs is the best option for people like me.
This idea can also be developed even further. Action Replays during a deadball can look like in a real life broadcast, and show a dunk that happened minutes ago if it was too savage. Or a hard foul. Or anything that didn't get the chance to be shown right then because there wasn't a deadball at that very moment.
4. EA'S in-form system. Some teams are bad but sometimes everything goes right and they go on random winning streak (Bulls last year), some other teams are good on papper but they look like they don't want that W most nights, or just have a bad night (Cavs all season). The in-form system can give temporary increases/decreases in players OVR without messing with players OVR to reflect their current team state. I would love that for any game mode, especially "Play Now" with real life updates.

Postby Andrew on Sun Mar 11, 2018 12:04 am

My comprehensive Wishlist.

Key Points/Overview

  • Focus on substance over flash and gimmicks. Fix legacy issues in terms of bugs, gameplay, and game modes, before implementing outside-the-box innovations.
  • Strive for better balance in gameplay, particularly when it comes to player builds in MyCAREER and the connected modes.
  • Continue to fine-tune the motion system to reduce skating and improve physicality, without compromising the fluidity of the controls.
  • Polish up AI and strategy after some backwards steps in NBA 2K18.
  • Demonstrate a lot more goodwill in terms of Virtual Currency earnings, item prices, and so on.
  • Reduce the tedium of the grind in MyCAREER and the connected online experiences, as well as all the wasted time in The Neighborhood and loading screens.
  • Expand in-game customisation options even further.
  • Implement better matchmaking in online modes, so that users face opponents of similar skill level while they're getting better at online play.
  • Add more user-friendly options, such as the ability to skip cutscenes.
  • Make the PC version more modder-friendly, with roster and art files that are easier to work with.

Gameplay

  • Reduce the amount of skating, and loose feel of the new motion system, while retaining the responsiveness.
  • Reduce the ease of blowing by opponents with the hip-riding animations. The sweet spot is somewhere between the current system, and the "Brick Wall" approach of previous games.
  • Improve physicality and reduce clipping. There's far too many instances of the ball warping and clipping through players, steal attempts that swat right through the ball, and so forth.
  • Playcalling and strategy seemed to take a step backwards in NBA 2K18. Getting it back on track should be a priority in NBA 2K19.
  • Improve help defense and rotations. CPU teammates make poor decisions, and sometimes even actively scoot out of the way to let opponents straight through to the basket.
  • Get rid of canned fouls. A single press of the steal button shouldn't result in wild grabbing and slapping at the ball (spamming it should), to the point where body steals are the most effective way of swiping the ball.
  • Reduce body steals. Even with the aforementioned clipping issues, body steals happen way too often, and account for most of the thefts in the game.
  • Tone down AI interceptions. AI opponents pick off passes like Michael Jordan in his prime, and have superhuman awareness and reflexes, even when their backs are turned.
  • Reduce canned moments in general: passes going straight to out of position AI defenders (as confirmed by examining the trajectory of the pass in instant replay), getting sucked into two-man animations, etc.
  • Bring back the shot meter on layups, if layups are going to require proper release timing.
  • Improve shot mechanics. Greens should be tough to get, not nerfed into "Good" releases that are actually worse than "Slightly Early" and "Slightly Late" releases. NBA 2K17's mechanics, perhaps minus the stick aiming, were great.
  • Bring back NBA 2K17's shooting mechanics for free throws. It's ridiculous to miss so many attempts that supposedly have an 80% chance or better of going in (seems to be a bigger problem for MyPLAYERs).
  • Address the issue with super fast dunking animations for tall players. It makes 7'3" MyPLAYERs in particular very cheesy, because they dunk at superhuman speed.
  • Get rid of the awkward animations when players receive an inbounds pass after a basket (mostly happens with MyPLAYERs).
  • Fewer missed layups. They shouldn't be guaranteed buckets, but far too many easy ones go awry in NBA 2K18. CPU teammates also miss too many.
  • If a paint protector has their back turned, or is too far away, they shouldn't have as big of an effect on shooters. This is one of the main reasons too many easy looks around the basket are missed, and it feels very cheap.
  • Improve directional passing. Even with the controller settings, it still goes to the wrong teammate way too often, contributing to the inflated number of cheap AI steals.
  • Resolve the bug that randomly resets your controller configuration from Absolute to Camera Relative. I'd prefer Absolute to be the default, but in lieu of that, it's annoying to have to keep checking and changing it back.
  • Reduce the number of canned stumbling and fumbling animations, especially in 2K Pro-Am.
  • Reduce the number of chase-down blocks and challenges (especially in MyCAREER and the connected modes).
  • Bring back signature layup packages, and/or expand the range of generic layup packages.
  • Remove some of the awkward layups/push shots in the paint that were added in NBA 2K18.
  • Make it easier for MyPLAYERs to dunk, if their ratings are sufficient. I'd prefer an approach closer to NBA 2K17.
  • Ensure gameplay is balanced, with as few cheap and frustrating moments as possible. Challenge should come from smart play, and not feel artificial.

MyCAREER

  • Reduce the number of hybrid Archetypes, or ensure that there are no builds that are either cheesy or broken. This is particularly important when it comes to the connected online experiences.
  • Overhaul the grading logic so that there's more balance between rewarding good play and punishing mistakes, as well as better logic when it comes to evaluating shot selection, defensive breakdowns, lucky rebounds (or being overpowered by a bigger player), transition offense and defense, and so on.
  • Bring back an actual free throw rating and let us improve it, instead of the lengthy grind of the Free Throw Ace Badge. Also make the starting free throw rating higher for shooting Archetypes.
  • Make gameplay less reliant on Badges. It's resulted in a Catch-22 where you need Badges to do things like complete alley-oops, but need to complete alley-oops to earn the Badges. They're also very overpowering, especially online.
  • Change it so that some Badges (like Clutch Performer) need to be earned through repeated in-game actions, not just automatically granted when hitting a certain Overall Rating on the Road to 99.
  • Increase XP earnings for Badges and cap breakers. It shouldn't really slow down until you're well past 90 Overall.
  • Improve teammate AI and team strategy. Teams don't play like their real life counterparts in MyCAREER, there are too many bad three-point attempts, and CPU teammates doing things they shouldn't be doing way too often.
  • Improve substitution logic so you don't get yanked in the middle of a tightly contested game, where you're having a big impact. It's frustrating for that to happen and get subbed in again with the game out of reach. It happens less than in the past, but there's still room for improvement.
  • Bring back menus to make it quicker and easier to perform tasks such as equipping animations and changing clothes; there's way too much messing around in NBA 2K18.
  • Allow NBA game accessories to be set without advancing to the locker room first.
  • Add shortcuts to proceed directly to The Playground and 2K Pro-Am. Not everyone is a fan of running around The Neighborhood; it gets old very quickly.
  • Bring back difficulty multipliers for Virtual Currency earnings.
  • Reduce prices of items, or increase NBA salary. As it stands, a basic pair of basketball shorts costs more than a single game's salary as a rookie. That's ridiculous unrealistic to say the least.
  • Allow cutscenes to be skipped, or remove the story-driven approach altogether. With all due respect, NBA 2K18's story was the worst one yet, and really painful to endure.
  • Allow us to practice free throws on MyCOURT. Leave improvements to the rating to training sessions, but let us freely practice our form.
  • Allow us to skip the short, repetitive moments such as the coach talking to us before a drill, or walking to the locker room.
  • In the pre-game shootaround, let us shoot around from a gameplay angle.
  • Allow all Archetypes with sufficient dunking ratings to dunk more often. If your rating is high enough to unlock flashy dunk packages, you shouldn't only dunk once every five games.
  • Add multiple starting points for your MyPLAYER depending on the path you want to take (e.g. different starting ratings with differing difficulty of levelling up), and meaningful roleplaying/story branching options.
  • Bring back the ability to search for a user's submission in the t-shirt kiosk so that you can vote for it.
  • Give us the option of going straight to MyCOURT, 2K Pro-Am, or The Playground when we're loading into MyCAREER.
  • Resolve the bug in which starting a second MyCAREER game resets the gear your player is wearing in your original MyCAREER file.
  • Allow messages to be deleted without reply (or at least marked read properly without reply), and to respond positively or negatively to Tweets on the in-game social media.
  • Fix issue where assists don't count on passes that are slightly deflected or bobbled, are intercepted by a different teammate, and sometimes simply don't register on alley-oop attempts.
  • Fix issue where steals are tallied inconsistently when two players are involved (i.e. sometimes the person who poked it loose gets the steal, sometimes the person who picks up the loose ball gets credited instead).
  • Allow all Archetypes to get at least one Hall of Fame level Badge (especially if there's going to be a Trophy/Achievement for it).

2K Pro-Am

  • Overhaul the grading logic so that there's more balance between rewarding good play and punishing mistakes, as well as better logic when it comes to evaluating shot selection, defensive breakdowns, lucky rebounds (or being overpowered by a bigger player), transition offense and defense, and so on.
  • Add better matchmaking so that teams of similar skill level and experience in 2K Pro-Am match up against each other more often.
  • Add private matchmaking, so that you can go head to head with a friend's squad if they accept the challenge.
  • Unlock team customisation with image importing after a set number of games. If nothing else, make the qualifications for getting to higher tiers clear, consistent, and readily available.
  • Tune long passes so that easy ones can be thrown and caught more often. It's frustrating to have players refuse to even try to catch easy long passes because a canned turnover has been triggered.
  • Make sure Archetypes are properly balanced, and reduce the amount of cheese. NBA 2K18 took a big step backwards from NBA 2K17, thanks in part to the cheesy (and broken) Archetypes.
  • Improve the AI for CPU teammates. A lot of them will take bad shots and actively be a liability, forcing you to freeze them out.
  • Stop AI teammates from unnecessarily faking inbounds passes, artificially reducing your ability to run a fast-paced offense and quick responses to opponent's buckets.
  • Replace fictional AI teammates with randomly drawn NBA players, to underscore the "Pro" part of "Pro-Am" (and avoid the lousy teammates we're so often stuck with).
  • When we're shooting around in the team arena, let us shoot around from a gameplay angle, as in MyCOURT. Let us actually rebound instead of bringing up the menu (changing the menu button would be good), at least while we're in shootaround mode (as in NBA 2K17).
  • Allow us to view team stats on a normal stats overlay, instead of scrunched up on the smartphone display.
  • Punish cheaters and hackers on PC; clean up the experience.
  • Make 2K Pro-Am as fun and balanced as the NBA 2K League Combine reportedly was.
  • Fix issue where assists don't count on passes that are slightly deflected or bobbled, are intercepted by a different teammate, and sometimes simply don't register on alley-oop attempts.
  • Fix issue where steals are tallied inconsistently when two players are involved (i.e. sometimes the person who poked it loose gets the steal, sometimes the person who picks up the loose ball gets credited instead).

The Playground

  • Overhaul the grading logic so that there's more balance between rewarding good play and punishing mistakes, as well as better logic when it comes to evaluating shot selection, defensive breakdowns, lucky rebounds (or being overpowered by a bigger player), transition offense and defense, and so on.
  • Add matchmaking so that players of similar skill levels and experience in The Playground match up against each other.
  • Add private matchmaking so that you can square off against a friend (as long as you're both squadded up).
  • Add some sort of instant matchmaking to bypass the whole "Got Next" system. I get replicating the whole experience of playing at your local park, but it leads to a lot of standing around waiting, effectively simulating the most tedious part of any activity: waiting in line.
  • Add more two-on-two courts, and bring back a single four-on-four or five-on-five court.
  • As mentioned above, balance the gameplay and in particular, the hybrid Archetypes.
  • Reduce the cost of basic celebrations. As it stands, it's a blatant VC gouge.
  • Punish cheaters and hackers on PC; clean up the experience.
  • Fix issue where assists don't count on passes that are slightly deflected or bobbled, are intercepted by a different teammate, and sometimes simply don't register on alley-oop attempts.
  • Fix issue where steals are tallied inconsistently when two players are involved (i.e. sometimes the person who poked it loose gets the steal, sometimes the person who picks up the loose ball gets credited instead).

MyLEAGUE

  • Continue to improve sim engine and stats generation so that the results are more realistic (at least while the league remains relatively the same as real life).
  • Continue to fine-tune player movement and trading logic so that it's mostly sensible.
  • Tone down coaching changes so that there's more sensible logic behind them. Gregg Popovich shouldn't be leaving San Antonio, teams that are winning shouldn't be quick to dump coaches, and so on.

MyGM

  • Allow users to play the mode without a story, or remove the story-driven approach altogether.
  • Continue to improve sim engine and stats generation so that the results are more realistic (at least while the league remains relatively the same as real life).
  • Continue to fine-tune player movement and trading logic so that it's mostly sensible.
  • Tone down coaching changes so that there's more sensible logic behind them. Gregg Popovich shouldn't be leaving San Antonio, teams that are winning shouldn't be quick to dump coaches, and so on.
  • Allow the use of custom rosters in MyGM.

MyTEAM

  • Improve pack odds and content. One player per pack often results in poor value for the cost. Reduce the cost, or offer better value.
  • Throwback packs should only have throwback content, not a "small chance" of getting a historical player. Even if it isn't necessarily an old school star, it should be a retro player.
  • Don't lock the Auction House and other basic functionality behind the Goals list. By all means utilise the Goals list to promote features and reward players for checking everything out, but don't make them mandatory to use basic functions.
  • Implement better matchmaking, according to skill and experience.

Roster Management & Customisation

  • Expand Edit and Create Player to include access to full bio data and attributes, including Draft information and any currently hidden tendencies that will affect gameplay.
  • Expand the total number of Created Player slots from 150; as many as possible.
  • Bring back Create-a-Team, with the ability to export and share team files to be imported into any roster.
  • Add the ability to edit the All-Star teams.
  • Add the ability to use the rebranding features (complete with image importing) outside of MyLEAGUE, MyGM, and MyTEAM, so that teams can be modified as part of a custom roster.

Other Modes, Features, & Content

  • Add a standalone All-Star Weekend mode, so that we can play the Slam Dunk Contest and Three-Point Shootout anytime.
  • Bring back a Creating a Legend-type career mode, for a more streamlined career experience.
  • Try to work out deals with Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller.
  • Improve facescan app so that it doesn't result in many errors and failed attempts to scan. Results also still leave something to be desired.
  • Make all hairstyles and facial hair styles immediately available when creating your MyPLAYER, especially if you're going to charge to change them at the Barber Shop later on.
  • Allow pre-order content to be shared between different MyCAREER saves.
  • Overhaul ratings for historical teams.
  • Add more historical teams; preferably more interesting and significant ones.

Presentation & UI

  • Secure authentic broadcasting license (perhaps NBA TV, given the mix of voice talent already in the game) for even more realistic presentation.
  • Allow camera cuts when the ball is being chased down on a dead ball situation, instead of having to wait for it to be retrieved. In other words, allow us to skip straight to the inbound with a button press.
  • Allow us to quickly skip through halftime shows and stats screens during dead balls, or add an option to disable them altogether if you want a more streamlined experience.
  • Remove the mini-parachutes that are very distracting when playing on broadcast camera angles.
  • Allow us to dismiss the "Update Required" dialogue box, at least until the current game is finished. It's distracting, intrusive, and ruins the presentation.
  • Change the button for the menu in MyCAREER so that it isn't the same as rebound (thus taking that control away when shooting around in the Pro-Am arena and whatnot).
  • Add options for retro filters and presentation, as in NBA's Greatest in NBA 2K12.
  • Increase the number of save slots to share between MyLEAGUE, MyGM, and MyCAREER.

Miscellaneous

  • Be far less aggressive in the way microtransactions are handled. We all realise they're not going anywhere, but in NBA 2K18, it felt like we were being treated like an ATM. We want to see a lot more goodwill.
  • Make the PC version more modder-friendly, with roster and art files that can easily be opened with readily available software (or better yet, some official tools).
  • Allow our MyPLAYER to be unlocked for use in MyTEAM.
  • If we're part of a 2K Pro-Am squad, allow our teammates to be unlocked for use in MyTEAM.
  • Improve loading times, especially in The Neighborhood.
  • Don't have Trophies/Achievements that can be made unknowingly difficult to attain (e.g. the one for getting a Badge to Hall of Fame level, when some Archetypes don't have Hall of Fame level Badges).

Great list Andrew. I agree with every single thing you said but I don't know if its just me but jump balls seem broken this year and I am yet to win a single one because the ball is thrown so low.

I'll have to play a few more exhibition and/or MyLEAGUE games to test that out. Being locked to point guard in MyCAREER or 2K Pro-Am, I generally haven't had to worry about a lot of jump balls this year.

Many of these have already been mentioned, but here's my wish list:

1. FIX THE CLIP! As mentioned, the clipping has been ridiculous in this year's game. I don't know anything about programming a video game, but it seems to me that if you can program a player to be physically unable to enter the stands, or cross a certain boundary, then you should be able to program that same player to not stick his hand through the face of another player. The game just loses all sense of realism for me every time that happens.

2. Commentary - While the commentary on the whole has been very good this year, and very diverse with different personalities, they need to weed out some of the lesser talented commentators. Steve Smith is just horrible. Just awful. Seems like he's reading from a script. Which, they probably all are. But he SOUNDS like he's reading from a script. Brent Barry is a close second in regards to being hard to listen to. And while it's a fun novelty to have Kobe and KG in there, once is enough. It would be nice to have the option of choosing which commentators you'd like to hear from for any particular game.

3. Scenario Mode - Kind of like the Jordan Challenge from NBA2K12, how about some historical scenarios that we could take part in? Maybe it's a whole game, maybe it's something that's less than a minute. For instance - it's the 98 Finals: You're Michael Jordan and you've got 30 seconds to steal the ball from Karl Malone and hit a game winning shot over Byron Russell. Or, it's the 86 WC Finals. You're the Rockets, and you have 2 seconds to hit a game winning shot over the Lakers with Ralph Sampson. I think a mode like this would be a blast, and you'd never run out of scenarios.

4. MyCareer - This has been my first experience with MyCareer, and while there are lots of frustrating things (VC, Bfresh, etc.), I have to admit that I've enjoyed it for the most part. But there are a LOT of things that can be fixed and improved upon. Little things, like skipping cut scenes, endless wandering and wasting time in the neighborhood. And little things like this...when you are grinding during team practice, I can't tell you how many times a coach or a ball has gotten in my way during a particular drill. I mean..come' on. Be professional.

That's it for now. I may add more things later.

I will definitely not buy 2K19. I played every NBA2K Game since 2K9 on PC and since 2K16 it really completely went to shit. In 2K14 I had like 450hrs and it went down Year after Year. Last Year I still got 150hrs out of it and this Year I'm sitting 35hrs and I own it since Day1...

I even went back to FIFA to play somce Sportsgames and I had not played it since FIFA15 before that.

I would not be surprised if they make MyLeague Pay2Win next Year too and hopefully they just fucking don't bother with a PC Version, because they aren't trying anyways.

Re: Official NLSC Wishlist for NBA 2K19

Postby Dee4Three on Thu Apr 05, 2018 5:28 am

Can't believe I hadn't made one of these yet:


Gameplay:


Eliminate players skating: Players look like they are running around on ice wearing tennis shoes. It makes the game feel out of control, and you don't feel like you have as much control of your player because he is sliding into animations. We had skating players in 2K9, why bring it back for 2K18? It obviously has to do with the new motion system, but foot planting is a part of real life human movement. You should be able to get what you want out of the motion system while still having the foot planting from 2k15/2k16 and 2k17. You should also be able to implement this without the players feeling heavier, look what you were able to accomplish with NBA 2K14? (This gen)

Improve Defense.... Complete Overhaul: The one on one defense is the worst of any game on this gen, and probably worse than any game on last gen. You can literally just drive by your man, with anyone, on anyone and get to the hoop while hitting at a high percentage. Kawhi Leonard on you? no problem, Steven Adams on a point guard? No problem. No dribbling moves are needed on any drives in this game, the dribbling moves are literally in the game just for show. In fact, you tend to complicate things more by using them, instead of just dribbling by your guy to the hoop for a score. The help defense is abysmal, even with defensive sliders turned up to 100 (Including help defense strength). You can run by your guy in my example above, and almost never get contested at the hoop. Its a free for all, and it completely ruins the competitive nature of the game, it's truly gamebreaking. A happy medium needs to be found between brick wall defense, and hip riding defense. NBA 2K15 had a pretty good combination of both, and the players were not skating. The first year with this motion system seems like a major step backwards, so hopefully it can be corrected for 2K19.

Ball physics: Players shooting and missing so many layups looks horrible, and part of it is because the shots going up do not look natural. The ball floats through the air and ricochets hard off the glass, causing the ball to hit the front of the rim. If a player in real life missed this many shots around the rim, they wouldn't even be in the NBA. The ball physics needs to be tweaked that way they look more natural.

AI Offense: The AI will literally stand wide open and just wait for the designated play to run, they will seldom adjust to the defense being played. It feels very scripted. Or in the case of the game I was playing the other night, they will just pass it around to the top of the key for the whole 24 seconds, and fire up a contested shot with whoever has to shoot it before the shot clock goes off (In this case, it was Kevin Garnett on the 08 Celtics). Its 2018, and this is how the CPU plays? The CPU continuously runs into the middle of the paint, and even if three defenders are surrounding him, he will still go up for the shot. If he decides to kick it out, the capable shooter who catches it will most often not shoot it right away, or not shoot it at all. The way the AI plays doesn't make any sense.... Playing the Bulls, Robin Lopez shot about 8 mid range contested shots in the first quarter. Tendencies and ratings are wrong all over the place, which comes to my next topic....

Roster tendencies/ratings: It shouldn't be up to the user to fix so many players/teams throughout the league, sometimes even having to fix full teams (all players), adjusting tendencies and ratings. The person who does the rosters must be lazy, or rushing, or feel rushed, because copy/paste jobs exist in the roster. The original game was even released all time teams players missing badges. Isaiah Rider have LeBrons signatures copy and pasted onto him, Nick Van Exel having Shawn Marions FT, guards who can't really dunk having extensive dunk packages, shot tendencies of players being way off, players being given such a low block or steal tendency rating that they get between 0-10 steals or blocks for an entire season, etc etc. Something isn't right, and the fact that year after year these issues are in the game are concerning. Matt Bullard literally had Charles Smiths portrait for two years..... how does the person/people doing these rosters allow this to happen? How does it get passed production? Get someone in there that will take the time to work on each player individually and accurately, someone who understands the game and how the ratings and tendencies work. Get someone in there that isn't going to throw some random jump shot shooting animation on Amir Johnson and call it good, when he clearly just shoots a set shot (He Barely jumps, and I mean barely).

Body Blocks/Body Steals: This has been a problem since 2k15, but it has gotten worse every year. Players blocking shots with elbows, or stomachs, or there head. The ball gets dislodged so easily.. players are taught at a very young age to hold onto the ball tight, clearly 2K doesn't understand that because players just drop the ball all the time. Most of the time you can't execute a spin move without a body steal occurring, or you will be dribbling up the floor and the ball will touch the back of a players foot and it will create a turnover, or you will pass the ball into the post and the defender will press his body up against you and the ball will just fall to the floor. As a defender, you can literally just push your body up against the ball handler while he is dribbling (Or not dribbling) and the ball with dislodge.... 2K... you have to do better than that. Again, this issue has been in the game for multiple years now. Make the players hang onto the ball like they would in real life. Seeing so many dunks being blocked is laughable, it looks ridiculous. Point Guards are blocking Centers with ease.

Shots hitting the bottom of the rim: Going up around the basket is a nightmare in 2K18, not only do we have the strange ball physics and missed layups, but we have our offensive players literally just hitting the bottom of the backboard on field goal attempts. The CPU does the same thing, they will shoot shots right off the bottom of the backboard or rim. The player physics/movements need to be adjusted around the rim, because this truly ruins the realism of the game.

Players all blending in together: I literally don't feel a difference using Jerry West and Allen Iverson. The ability to get blocks/steals with most anyone, the ability to do fast dribbling moves/combos with players that shouldn't be able to do them, the ability to drop step and score with most anybody, the way one on one defense doesn't matter because you can get by anyone with anyone, etc..... I feel no authenticity playing this game. I don't feel like I'm using a superstar when I'm using one, I don't feel like I need to execute a gameplan based on who I have out on the floor, etc. The authenticity needs a lot of work.

Outlet Passes: The fact that outlet passes sail over players heads so often is still a big problem, and again it's a problem that has been in the game for years. You could throw an outlet with Anthony Davis, with your offensive players 20 feet away and wide open, and it will go sailing over the players head. Why hasn't this been fixed yet? I understand if the receiver is all the way down court and you are throwing the pass with an average or below average passer, but this happens all the time even with good passers.

Clipping: I don't need to go in depth here, this has been going on for a few years now. Players arms/legs/faces going through eachother, hands going through the ball, players literally running through eachothers bodies. It needs to be cleaned up.


Graphics:


Large heads: Players having oversized heads throughout the roster is unacceptable, especially in 2018. How did this get into production? I don't get it... It is blatantly obvious how unrealistic these players look on the floor. They literally look like NBA Jam characters... The fact that I have read reviews that said this game was the best graphically in the series really bugs me, no mention of the oversized heads in these reviews. Clearly the reviews are bought and paid for, and that's sad.

Dark arenas: No arenas are that dark in real life, not even the Lakers. It's the icing on the cake really, because the crowd is also bland and not moving most of the time. I'm not expecting NBA 2K13 crowd, but something in the middle. Give the game some life... it's the freaking NBA, NBA Action. Take a lesson from Live here, they win in presentation and atmosphere.

Muscle: Give the players some definition, they look like clay. On the court, they look like a bunch of gumby type characters running around. Not only do the players not have traps, it looks like mostly one body type was used for every player in the game.


Presentation:


Balloons: The balloons falling into the crowd are NOT realistic, in any way shape or form. With all the other gameplay issues/graphical issues, you decided to spend time implementing this? Not only is it silly, it obstructs the view of the users who play on broadcast.

Screen shaking when feet stamped: Another extremely unrealistic addition that makes absolutely no sense and is unrealistic. Even if you are sitting in an ARENA (not high school bleachers) there would be no shaking when feet are stamped. Think about how silly this addition is... it blows my mind. Again, someone spent the time to implement this addition instead of using that manpower to work on the gameplay/roster/graphical issues.


Misc:


VC: I know this won't stop, but preying on your consumers is just not right. Preying on children is also preying on parents. How greedy can a company be?



If I think of anything else, I'll add it to this post.

Just a heads up, the NBA 2K19 Wishlist has been submitted to Visual Concepts, and it was submitted in time to have an impact. It remains to be seen which Wishes are fulfilled, but we've done our part in providing constructive feedback.

For the moment, I'll leave this topic open for further discussion and ideas. Once we open up the NBA 2K19 section later this year, the topic will be locked and archived there. Thanks to everyone who took part, and again, feel free to keep the conversation going for now.

A really simple idea I thought of was just the weather and time in the neighborhood repliciating the real life weather, and tine of day. This was done in Mario and Sonics at the Olympic Games 2010 so 2K's developers might be able to manage this I hope.

With the exception of the MyPark and the beginning to MyCareer I personally have no problem with the concept of the neighborhood. I much prefer it to just being stuck in a warehouse although I really liked it in 2K16 but I didn't enjoy it in 2K17. I just don't agree with the VC costs within the neighborhood and I think you should spawn in at your MyCourt instead if that statue so I think the ideas a good start and hopefully will be improved next year.

Fair enough. A lot of people, myself included, find it very tedious to have to run around to get to The Playground or 2K Pro-Am, go to the gym to get the extra sprint boost, run back and forth to the practice facility (if you want to get the extra drill from the Fresh Squeezed stand, it adds an extra couple of minutes with the cutscene and loading), go up the elevator to MyCOURT to change clothes and accessories, load into the MyPLAYER lab, and so forth. Just so much tedious running around and loading. I'd prefer to have menus than a paltry attempt at an open world. I liked NBA 2K17; NBA 2K18 is off-putting. That goes for a lot of things, but The Neighborhood is definitely among them.

I would much rather have the gameplay get the focus, no offense. Yes, it's a popular mode... but the on court fixes are the most important. If the basketball aspect of the game is weak, or unrealistic, or has lots of bugs, that's the biggest problem. After all, it's a basketball video game.

That too. But in terms of The Neighborhood being a hub for MyCAREER, 2K Pro-Am, and The Playground, it's tedious with a lot of flaws.

Why not just have an NBA Greatest Moments mode again, and include the Pacers vs Pistons brawl....

Will you get fined VC, though? That could be rough.

Getting back to some serious suggestions though, I had a thought for MyTEAM. Instead of just assigning one home and away jersey from your collection (or creating them upon unlocking the ability to do so), it'd be great to have multiple jerseys assigned, and be able to select them before the game as in other modes.

I agree. Like a "Jersey pack" for selection before games.

That and allowing a friend to play games with you... even if it's just locally. I know I mentioned this before....

I still think they should bring "Screenshots" back for the end of the games (Any mode), remember the viewer we had for 2K10/11 and 12? I feel like they got rid of some of the great presentation aspects of the past games.

I mean, I don't want any of this stuff looked at if they can't get the gameplay fixed.....

Speaking of old features bring back the expanded blacktop mod like they had in NBA 2K11. Even just the stuff you can do at your MyCourt such as Horse etc.

I know it can be nodded on PC but a new scoreboard design would be cool because I'm sick of the current one.

Blows my mind that they still don't have TNT as part of the presentation. With 2K's popularity/sales etc, with the fact that they have EJ, Kenny, Shaq, Aldridge and Burke, I don't get it. Is it because they want to keep 2K as the overall makeup of the presentation? As in, they don't want to take away from the "2K" part of the presentation?

Shocked that this merge hasn't happened, as we should already have the TNT scoreboard in the default game. I would think that TNT would want to be on board with 2K, as it's good for marketability, it would be good for both parties (I would think)

It would be an added expense I suppose, even with all the money they're making. Also, they do have some ESPN personalities in the game, which they can get away with as long as they have NBA on 2K branding, but they'd have to drop them if they had NBA on TNT integration.

Re: Official NLSC Wishlist for NBA 2K19

Postby Dmayne on Fri Apr 20, 2018 8:53 am

i do appreciate that we have a descent nba 2k game to play every year, thank you 2k, just please can you try harder? you seem to be getting lazy, and greedy from my point of view... could i be wrong? maybe? the point is... i have noticed, and i'm not the only one...
now, i want to keep this 2k19 wishlist simple as possible, just in case i'm pissing into the wind here...

some criticisms:
-now... currently i have lost all motivation to play 2k18. when all strategy can be ignored and all i need to do to win a game is just drive the lane past the defender and dunk, the "fun factor" is gone.
tendency/slider tweaks changes nothing, we're stuck with 2k18 being this way... please don't let this happen with your future installments.

-i don't buy vc and NEVER will, so just keep that in mind. don't ruin nba 2k by making it cost VC to launch the game. it's just not fair to your loyal customers, just don't get too greedy and try to force vc through all aspects of the game.

-whenever you release new "shoe" updates for example why do i have to RESTART A ROSTER to use them in playnow? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? so, next year... should i wait till you release the last update to "get" the game?

-question 2k... do you use portraits in the game because half of your player cyberfaces have been half-assed/not touched since 2k10? please UPDATE THEM!!! take some time, or pay some skilled cf pc modders to do the work for you. why is this ignored year after year?

-can we get a full tnt presentation? keep it simple and slick, get rid of most everything 2k, and not a fan of the terrible looking shaq, ej, kenny cyberfaces. do something similar to nba live 18's halftime/postgame, just voice and highlights?

-graphics are starting to look tired and stale, please put some effort into your crowd textures/stadium lighting, bring some life/realism into the game.

MY CAREER:
i have lost all interest in my career mode over the last couple years. here is what you can do to correct that...
-let us edit the roster i want to play with before i start my career.
-let us choose what team drafts me, or just let me free agent sign to any team right off the street.
-let us control/give final say on trades/signings for all teams.
-remove/stop giving us a sidekick, let us be terrible the 1st year.
-instead of giving us a terribly written myplayer story filled with product placements, sjw propaganda, and racist trump mentions...(i know it's coming)..
just give us stories based on our players stats/achievements. also give us detailed stats from games/teams/players throughout the league during and after games.

RETRO:
would you please take SOME time this year and UPDATE the retro teams? this has been ignored for far too long...
-retro video filters for games?
-PLEASE add correct late 80's and mid 90's style compression shorts? these need to be accurate to the era.
-unlock jersey numbers/career stats, give us the freedom to edit these please.
-ALLOW us to edit/reroll the player faces/skin colors of the number 90+ players. (so we can make fake barkleys and reggies)
-update ALL retro team accessory/jersey/floor COLORS please? going on 10 years untouched? (aren't you tired of playing with pink retro bulls gear?)
-update the players accessories.
-update retro players cyberfaces!!!! the majority are very outdated, huge heads, wrong skin colors, etc...
-include retro coach cyberfaces for us to add later on?
-IS IT time to update retro player tendencies? how many more years you going to put this off for?
-update retro players SHOES/colorways please... (save me roster editing time next year)
-add more retro player signature moves.
teams to add:
92-93 suns (even without barkley)
mid 90's pacers team (even without reggie)
grant hill pistons team
tmac magic team
96-97 magic
99-00 suns
jordan wizards team
retro all-star teams?
retro usa teams?

SHOES:
-please add a team color 1/2/3 "texture" in the shoe editor. (so i can create one pair of home/away shoes that will work for EVERY TEAM)
-remove player shoe restrictions
NIKE:
pippen 1
pippen 2
payton zoom hawk flight

First, really hope the overall open/contested/dribble shooting ability can be modified in sliders, not only the rough 2p/3p shooting percentages. It seems th open shoot is too accurate for almost every player in high difficulty.

Second, please improve the hand off plays in the game. Right now the hand off plays are almost broken, partially due to the difficulty for making hand off pass in the plays and the system for judging the shooting space.

Third, please improve the steal ability and percentage for the double team situation in the paint. Make players and the CPU to commit more turnovers in the paint.

4th, the camera should really focus on the controlled player not the ball in certain camera views. For example if you are playing in the broadcast view with your friend locally, the camera should focus on the players you two controlling.

5th, for the online coop play with friends could it be the same as playing locally? Right now the staminum of the players is not reducing in the online coop game. And we cannot change the settings as we can do in the local game.

6th, is it possible to export the teams from our myleague mode and use them in the local game and coop mode?

7th, please improve the game simulation in My league. It is too frustrating to see some teams with overwhelming ratings keep losing to the ones with the worst ratings. Like Portland can sweep warriors in playoff or Boston cannot go into playoffs but the Nets do. Or a team that got championship in the previous season cannot even go into the playoff with the same rotation??? Doesn't make sense. The result is too arbitrary in some cases.

8th, hook is broken in high difficulties , especially for the skyhook. Why not add the hook shooting success in the sliders?

9th, the bodies and faces of the classic players need to be improved.

10th, muscle definition for the players.

11th, could we have more achievements in My league? Or can there be more responds when something amazing happens in My league? More interesting things for the draft? Maybe something like the draft game show as the pregame show.

Hope any of the ideas can be useful. Thank you very much.

These are the ideas I Thought:
-More interactive camera mens/media when players go timeout, halftimes, and end game interviews.
*in 2k18 we have cutscenes to let us see what the players do in timeouts, halftimes, and end game interviews
but we never saw a camera man standing in-front of the scene. Also with DA's interviews... like wtf where's the camera who suppose to be covering the scene?
it's ;ike they're invisible

-More players are able to step on the court
*In 2k18 we are limited to 12 players to be able to play on the court, but in reality all 21 players are able to play on the court in season and 15 players for the
playoffs this adds the scenario of Quinn Cook in GSW, in reality they all play and all have minutes even though it is short time or long time depending on the coach. I hope we are able to see that in 2k19. I always saw that there are 2 extra seats in-game but never used.

-All Coaching staffs and injured players can sit on the team's bench
*In 2k18 a problem I saw are mainly the GS and other teams who have assistant coach and staffs, like for example, Steve Kerr and Mike Brown is the coaches but
suddenly Ron Adams is the assistant coach. So I think it's better to add all the staffs on the bench for more realistic visual gameplay. I also want to address the
injured player who are able to watch the game like Steph, Kyrie, Hayward etc. because I always saw on the tv that even thay have injuries they are able to watch
the game and support their team mates. This also can add the energy for the team.

-More realistic crowd reactions and more random.
-in 2k18 I always saw that 1/4 of the crowd are all have the same animations and they're like one seat apart so it's noticeable by my visually notorious eyes as a
designer. I also want to address the situations like the crossovers, ankle breakers, dunks, blocks, etc. yes we hear it but what the hell they're like ooohhh but not
physically hyped. It also adds the hype of the gamer.

-more realistic floor mappers, ball boys, and shirt taker( I don't know what are the real name/title of the job)

-in 2k18 these said jobs are useless because they never moved on the court when players go down and hustle the ball down, like man! you have to clean the floor!

-Technical fouls, court ejections, flagrants, unsportsmanlike, etc
-I really want to see this in 2k19 because this adds the hype for the gamers and user.

-More realistic jump balls, players hustle down the ball, players playing american football to get the ball, players jumping on each other to get the ball etc.
-This idea adds more realistic feel to the game and turns the hype to the ceiling, players are locked down, they're ready to grapple everyone to win game.

-Hook shots vs Post fade away for centers and PF's
-I hate it when on 2k18 centers are trying to be like MJ but in reality they're really more using hook shots than post fade away's

-players talking to each other, players talking to coach and refs while free throw or in game
-I like to see this in 2k19 because when the players react to refs call they tend to ignore each other when the animation is gone. I want to see them still talking to ref
while the other team's taking free throw, and suddenly when talking is over the ref will tech him. I also want to see trash talks to heat the game up, players get
revenge for the trash talk and suddenly turns to scuffle.

-More interactive and always updating Game history, Stats, like " for the first time in history since then", and breaking records in game stat pop ups.
-I hate that I never saw an updated history or stats in My league and other game modes, like if steph beaten the 3 pointer record for the first time and suddenly a
pop up says "steph curry to break the most 3pt fg in history 12/13" "kemba 33 points to go to be the franchise leader" "lebron 3 pts to go to beat MJ's all time scoring"
like that pop ups to help the user to get more knowledge to the game of basketball.

So far that was all my ideas for 2k19.
feel free to comment your suggestions, insights etc.
I hope the developers see this.

Matt,

Nothing gameplay wise? These are all additional features you would like the game to possibly add, the on court action item you list have nothing to do with the actual basketball portion of the game. The only think you mentioned was post hook/fadeaway, which is actually incorrect because you can control which one you do at any given time. Also, there are big man fadeaway and hook animations in the game.

Did you have anything in regards to the actual basketball aspect of the game that you may want to add to the wishlist? Something specifically about the gameplay that you wish they would fix for tweak for the next release?

designer. I also want to address the situations like the crossovers, ankle breakers, dunks, blocks, etc. yes we hear it but what the hell they're like ooohhh but not
physically hyped. It also adds the hype of the gamer.

-more realistic floor mappers, ball boys, and shirt taker( I don't know what are the real name/title of the job)

-in 2k18 these said jobs are useless because they never moved on the court when players go down and hustle the ball down, like man! you have to clean the floor!

-Technical fouls, court ejections, flagrants, unsportsmanlike, etc
-I really want to see this in 2k19 because this adds the hype for the gamers and user.

-More realistic jump balls, players hustle down the ball, players playing american football to get the ball, players jumping on each other to get the ball etc.
-This idea adds more realistic feel to the game and turns the hype to the ceiling, players are locked down, they're ready to grapple everyone to win game.

-Hook shots vs Post fade away for centers and PF's
-I hate it when on 2k18 centers are trying to be like MJ but in reality they're really more using hook shots than post fade away's

-players talking to each other, players talking to coach and refs while free throw or in game
-I like to see this in 2k19 because when the players react to refs call they tend to ignore each other when the animation is gone. I want to see them still talking to ref
while the other team's taking free throw, and suddenly when talking is over the ref will tech him. I also want to see trash talks to heat the game up, players get
revenge for the trash talk and suddenly turns to scuffle.

-More interactive and always updating Game history, Stats, like " for the first time in history since then", and breaking records in game stat pop ups.
-I hate that I never saw an updated history or stats in My league and other game modes, like if steph beaten the 3 pointer record for the first time and suddenly a
pop up says "steph curry to break the most 3pt fg in history 12/13" "kemba 33 points to go to be the franchise leader" "lebron 3 pts to go to beat MJ's all time scoring"
like that pop ups to help the user to get more knowledge to the game of basketball.

So far that was all my ideas for 2k19.
feel free to comment your suggestions, insights etc.
I hope the developers see this.

Would looooooooooooove to see those in a game
Donations Are Appreciated

To export and import teams, period.

In NBA 2K12 we have this option and it was easy to bring teams from other mods inside our roster with a single step.
Better then ever! :D

One feature that would be cool is bust potential and star potential so it divides potential into 2.So some players have a higher probability to fail or succeed.

If 2K want to up the controversy this year they can go for the premiere "hood" experience by allowing you to pull out a gun on your opponent when you lose a game at MyPark.

MyLeague
    • 2-way players/low overall players/limited minutes players should not get mad when sent down into the G-League. They always express disinterest and have low morale because they were sent down even though they'll get limited to no minutes at all on the regular roster. Also they need to fix the development of G-League players, they get boosted up way too high and way too fast.
    • Expand the G-League so its actually playable and you can control your G-League affiliate. Basically what bring back what they had in 2k11 where you could control your affiliate and manage it like you are managing your main NBA team (also playable games).

    • Bring back preseason games but make it optional if you want preseason games or not. Also allow rosters to be expanded up to 20 during preseason since IRL teams use preseason for last minute cuts/decision making.

    • Add Utah Summer League and remove the Orlando Summer League (since the Magic are no longer hosting it).

    • Allow teams to decide which jerseys they want to retire/unretire.

    • Expanded draft combines/let us actually test out prospects in game/do workouts with them in game.

    • Sign-and-trades free agents if eligible, buyouts, amnesty clause if eligible.

    • Allow the ability to let us create staff members like how we can already create players

    • Better free agent preferences such as players willing to take paycuts to ring chase, location preferences, player roles in a rotation (starter, 6th man, etc.)

    • Allow us to override the award winners since 2k has a bad algorithm for deciding who wins awards

    • Smarter CPU rotations, have CPUs automatically sub in their reserves if its a blowout/outcome is already decided; better substitution patterns (no more 5 man substitution; not realistic)

    • Ability to hire more assistant coaches instead of having just one head assistant

Minor Miscellaneous Details
    • Have reserves currently in the rotation (14th/15th man that are inactive) appear on the bench but in suits

    • Players that are subbed out should have maybe some warmup accessory on like the warmup shirt/jacket instead of being in their uniform still
