Sim Points Of Emphasis: Difference Between "No Preference" & "Neutral?"

Postby turcorox911 on Sun Sep 06, 2020 3:54 pm

In terms of the Sim Points Of Emphasis, What's the difference between "No Preference" & "Neutral?"

Let's take Offensive Focus for example. If I choose "No Preference" then what happens? What would happen if I choose "Neutral?"
If it helps, the other options available under Offensive Focus are "Play Through Star," "Get Shooters Open," "Pick and Roll Offense," "Get To The Basket," and "Feed The Post."

Also, there are "Neutral" and "No Preference" options for Defensive Focus, so what's the difference between the two there?
If it helps, the other options available under Defensive Focus are "Limit Perimeter Shots" and "Protect The Paint."

Those options do seem tautological. I'm just guessing here, but "No Preference" might basically mean "dynamic/no set strategy", while "Neutral" might effectively mean "balanced".

Yeah, that's my thinking. I feel like "No Preference" gives more deference to the CPU, who can maybe make changes on a game-by-game basis. But I'm not sure about that.

Neutral does seem like it means balanced though.

This is also assuming that the different options work as intended, with any kind of noticeable difference.
