2K PRO-AM (PS4)

Postby Kenny on Sun Apr 12, 2020 5:30 pm

Just thought I'd create this thread to see if there's any interest in running with an NLSC 2K PRO-AM squad.

We have 3 at the moment looking to play a few games just to see what the team experience is like.

Having a centre and a power forward would help cover some positional gaps, but ultimately it'd just be great to try and get a game or two.

If it's any incentive, the squad has a point guard that loves racking up assists!

Andrew, ZZ, and I managed to get a few games today on the 3v3 court. It's pretty much just the playground, minus a lot of the lag from the background games. It's amazing how fun the game can be when you have good teammates.

Again, if anyone is interested, we'd love to get a 5v5 game going - at the very least, to say we gave it a shot. As long as you play the right way, we don't really care about ratings at this point.

Although it's very similar to 3v3 in The Playground, I'd say it's better. If nothing else, you don't have to line up at Got Next and twiddle your thumbs waiting for a game. Would be great to try 5v5, though. As Kenny said in the first post, a couple of bigs would be ideal as he, zzcoolj21 and I have the backcourt/wings covered.

After my pessimistic 0-5 prediction before the session, we went on an 8-0 streak - making it easily our best start ever in 2K PRO-AM. I have to admit, this mode is breathing life into a game that I felt practically done with. I'm anticipating a "jump the shark" moment, but right now, it's pretty fun.

We managed to beat the last team in less than five minutes while debuting our uniforms and logo.

And of course, I had to clip this one I swatted from the second game of our session:

That was a very rare session indeed, but no complaints here.

I've been thinking the same thing. I'm sure a rough session is coming, but at the same time, I think it has less pressure than 5v5 Pro-Am in a way. The games are over quicker, win or lose, so wins pump you up to keep playing and losses don't sting as much because they're less of a slog, not lasting as long as a normal game with five minute quarters. I'd also suggest there's a smaller focus on stats and less chance of being taken out of the game by a lack of touches, and that helps one do whatever it takes to win. The novelty may wear off eventually, but it's felt very refreshing so far.
