There's a dice roll, but ratings and level of coverage, along with ideal release point, also affect the odds. Basically as it is now, except without the option of on-screen meters and the guarantee of Green releases.

The lack of a shot meter is an issue with these older games; with how many games I've played, I feel like I only know a couple of my player's releases, and that's just a guess. Incidentally, was Sony's NBA series the first to introduce the shot meter?

NBA Inside Drive 2000 had one, so the concept goes back a long way. It's one of those things that took a while to catch on and become standard, though. Even as late as 2013, we had shot feedback and sometimes a flash in the player indicator as a visual aide, but no meter. It's only been the past five or six years that full shot meters have become the norm.

I was playing Game 5, winning by double-digits in the third and the game decided to crash... NBA Live 10 hates me. :lol: I'll give it another whirl eventually because I was experimenting with 8 minute quarters and it seemed to be too low.

I can't play on less than 12 minutes. It's not always ideal, but shorter quarters just don't feel right to me.

You're 100% right; it makes me feel rushed, and that the whole experience is just unauthentic.

The inability to normalise stats to 12 minutes is another reason why I prefer it. That's something I really like about MyLEAGUE on this generation of 2K.
