NBA 2k12 discussions
Lets talk 2k12 here is my cover if I could select one
First of all wouldnt it be awesome if they could come to an agreement with EA sports and help eachother out.If they did it should be an all out 2k game but with FIBA and get EAs online gameplay.They could also get a ESPN presentation and then they should also have not just one but 3 with ESPN ,TNT and NBA
The ratings are bad to they need to pay ESPN people to do them like John Hollinger ,J.A Adonde etc.and needmore post up moves also why is post up moves in one rating seperate like post up power moves and post up finnesse moves to seperate players like pau gasol and dwight howard.a free physics engine would be nice or improved contact animations also take out signature layup animations that control the defenders, i say creat a new rating acrobatic layup rating where you can avoid the defense.why is strengh only respected when backing down , it should help with finishing contact layups .the amount of ratings are good but i think you guys should add some more like ability to use body in between your layups like derrick rose does also vertical should affect dunks and layups, a fight through screens rating and a catch and shoot rating.They also need a hook shot rating and a fade away rating.here are players who are better at the Hook Shot than the Fade Away (Zach Randolph,Tim Duncan, Pau Gasol etc.) and there are players who are better at the Fade Away than the Hook Shot (Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony) And they need like a jump hook that Dwight Howard does
They should most deffiantly have a College 2k game and not just for my player mode in NBA 2k but that would be cool also to import your player.They also need to have updated rosters I dont know if they did for the other 2k college games but for example Jimmer Fredette ,Derrick Williams ,and Kemba Walker would be way better players an update at the end of the season then the original rosters.
The gameplay is good but still needs adjustments. Like jumpshots need improvements . Especially on fadeaways those are just bad and Dirk shoots nothing like he does in the game and most peoples spot up 3s are different from there off the dribble pull ups.They also need more way to score inside near the basket and for different players
As for my player mode they need way more hair styles .They also need wingspan.they need more endorsements like Nike ,Gatorade, etcThe drills also need to be changed IMO and need to add more . Like you cant just get stronger or jump highed you need to work out .They should have like bench press , dead lifts,explosion sqauts. and stuff like that.And for shooting they need more specific drills .If you want to get your 3 point shooting up they should have a drill were you sit on the 3 point line and someone passes you the ball while you shoot 3s. And the same for midrange .They also need like 5 minute practices with your team with a little scrimaging and mostly drills.And for customizing your own shot you should pick out it is .You should be able to creat your follow through and if its on the side of your head or in front or if your elbow is in or not . And if your body is squared and how high you jump and if you kick your legs out in front of you and stuff like that.
They need to add an all-star weekend with no blacktop crap.I want legit 3 point contest and slam dunk contest with the skills challenge .
And more creativety with stuff i want to work out my rotation in the association by saying: let Rose play 30 minutes an let him rest 5 min in the 2nd and 10 in the 3rd.so you could decide whether your 6th man comes in after one minute or after 6 min but playing the rest of the game.And they should also have a create your plays thing were you tell the players to go.And for passing i want to tell how my players pass like tap=lob normal=normal passs and double tap=bullet/bounce pass .They also need a create a stadium.They need that card thing that madden does also
It would be cool to add more classic teams such as Reggie Millers Pacers and Chris Webbers Kings and Bill Russels Celtics .Also have different my player modes with like Carmelo and start as a rookie
Im done with my stuff and now its your turn
i desperately want a college hoops 2k.... my fav game ever was college hoops 2k8... lol i got lost for days playing, the games depth was amazing
Yeah i never was really into colllege basketball games but now im dieing to play a new one by 2k
Yeah i never was really into colllege basketball games but now im dieing to play a new one by 2k
The rebounding drill is messed up in 2k11. Sometimes when you go up for the rebound the ball just goes through your hands and hits your head. Even if your rebounding rating is over 80. You wanna tell me a solid nba rebounder cant catch the ball? They should fix this.
Haha yeah david stern that happens to me all the time
hope to hear Stan Van Gandy commentating in nba 2k11,
We can only pray for a 2K College Hoops game...I still have mine, havent played it in a while, but man, the whole atmosphere and makeup of that game is incredible.
Agreed, would love more classic teams, this past year was great with classic teams and players they DID have. They can add some more, just have to get licensing.
Fix the NBADL..undrafted players and the lower rated free agents should appear on those teams if they havent been signed by the end of the off season. Those randomly made up players they have on the rosters all suck.
Inside shots especially in online play arent even high % shots, it feels like playing with a JV high school girls team online.
The streaks that are in the game are just annoying. You wont hit a three all game then youre down 10 with a minute left and you hit 4 in a row.
Franchise players in association rarely resign with their teams. If I do a sim franchise I sometimes would lose my best player after offering a max contract and hed sign somewhere else.
And i agree My Player could be so much better with more endorsmeents and contract options.
O yeah how could I almost forget about the worst part of the game- Passing. Its pointless to try to use the A button for passing it goes to the wrong guy who isnt open half the time.
Yeah, the shooting needs to be more consistent.
I miss a wide open three with Steve Nash, the my brother the other way hits a fadeaway 3 in the corner with Luol Deng.
And the inside shots when they miss is just stupid, I miss them way to often with someone whos rating is 80+.
And for passing I always use the direct pass cause if i dont it goes to the wrong person.
I really like the wingspan idea when creating a player.
Also, in the combine in my player, instead of just giving them stats to start off, I think it would be cool if there was a little mini game thing, when say you do a 3 points shooting drill, and the more 3's you hit, the better your 3 point rating will be in the game.
Same for things like a dribble course for handling, bench press for strength, and vertical, and other stuff.
I think doing that would be a great idea that I would enjoy doing
I remembered another thing. In the association mode when you finish the offseason and go see the free agents, some of the best players are still unsigned. you can sign a 90 ovrl player for a mid level exception.
To me one of the funnest parts of the game is the off season in your association mode...Draft time is the most exciting the messed up part about that is if your team did good in the season you get a late first round pick and your player is either weak or you just cant afford to play him....How about a summer league for your rookies and second year players and you can also create your summer roster using the undrafted and free agent players. maybe a 3-7 game summer season.....then after that it would be followed by a realistc Summer camp (remember how in college hoops 2k8 right before the game they had the layup line) Thats how summer camp should be everybody should be controlable by the click of one button....shooting drills, ball handling, conditioning, Etc....after that of course the pre-season......soon as the pre-season is finished right before the season start they should have the annual D-league Draft for all the undrafted and cut players from the summer league get ridd of those phony and whack a$$ players they have on the D-league rosters lets use somebody that we can actually use during the season.....
Yo for all you 2K11 and college hoop fans I have some SICK rosters available on XBOX Live. Pretty much every college team from the early 90's to present day. Over 200 + schools. Everything amazingly detailed by far the best rosters and most fun to play with. I have Game Sliders and Settings too that accomodate the whole college atmosphere as well. If interested request which teams you would like uploaded and I will post them ASAP.
Here are a few things I'd like to see:
- Blake Griffin: I'd like to see them give him his own dunk package. At first they gave him the "athletic bigman" dunk package. Then they upgraded him to "Amare Stoudemire". And lastly they upgraded him to "Shawn Kemp". He needs his own dunk package in 2K12, even when he catches alley oops.
- Dirk Nowitzki: Improve his jumpshot first off all. Second, give him his own shot package. His off of one leg shots are unique and should be on the game. I think it'd make it more fun to play with him. His fundamentals are off of the charts and we should be able to feel that realism in the game.
- Post packages: Zach Randolph post ups/moves are different than Pau Gasol. Gasol's are different than Tim Duncan's. Certain post players should have their own post packages based on how they play and move. Right now everyone just does the same thing. You can do the same moves with Greg Oden that you can do with Gasol... That's just not right.
- Swag: Certain players show emotions after they make great plays on offense or defense. They have a little of this on the game, but not enough. Jason Terry does the airplane thing after he dunks. Some players put up the three fingers after they make a three. Some players do the chest bump. Some players stare at the crowd as they run down the floor. Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh all show specific emotions after they make big plays. Blake Griffin's swag after he dunks is what makes him so exciting to watch. They need this in the game. Maybe they could have a swagger or showboating rating or something. Whether we like showboating or not, it happens in real life.
- Body types: I'd like to be able to tell the difference between a player with long arms and a player with short arms... A player with long legs and a player with short legs. Not every players' body type is the same. I'd like to see them incorporate length, etc into the game and it's impact for certain players. A player's physical characteristics impacts the way he plays the game in so many ways.
I have a few other things, but can't think of them right now.
Nice idea for the cover, but I prefer this.
I'd like the playbooks to be upgraded so that's there's sets for specific players, when there's injuries and stuff the player that fills in the starting spot has the same playbook even if they're completely different players. Also some bench players have different sets to other bench players, like Shawn Marion and Peja Stojakovic, why does Peja keep having to run pick and roll sets rather then spot up 3s?
What I want to see is sort of what they used to have in the 2k baseball games, like when the manager goes out and argues, and you can continue to argue, and eventually get ejected.(They even got rid of that!) May be they can have that with outragous foul calls.
Just a tanget, in Madden11, they do have an "Old Spice Swag" rating, lol.
i'd like to see ratings for maturity, play reading/basketball IQ/positioning, lateral quickness, ability to use body, leadership. i'd also like to see wingspan attribute available on the height screen, maybe hand size and standing reach also.
if i draft/sign a young point guard and i have chauncey billups, jason kidd, steve nash, baron davis, allen iverson i want to have some kind of system where the young guy learns things from the vet (at a realistic rate). with players with greater leadership (Chauncey) having better influence than players with lower ability to lead youth (Iverson). and certain rookies being more willing to learn than others
Yeah I like that idea grovesinternational and they need to change the training camps like for instance i shouldnt be able to just imrpove my player cause i have some points .And the offensive awererness should help players to know when to cut and when to stay on the 3 point line if there good at shooting 3s my example would be if Kevin Garnett gets doubled in the post by the other teams sg Ray Allen should know if that the lane is open he should cut to the lane but if it isnt he should go to my side and spot up for the open 3.As for defensive awerness if im playing with the Celtics against the Lakers and the Lakers want to double team KG in the post Kobe should know he shouldnt leave Ray Allen and that Derick Fisher should leave Rondo instead .
I'd like to see them let you argue with the refs and get a tech if you argue too much and flagrent fouls(and the option to fight if you feel you were fouled to hard)
And also I want to know the difference between a muscualar guy, (Lebron) and a fat guy Eddy (Curry)
It's really hard to drive with Lebron cause he's so frickin fat!
They need to stop with making so many passes go out of bounds. Especially on team play, where you can't control it. Too many time when I'm playing My Player, when I'm calling for the ball, one of my teammates decides to throw a full-court pass, and it goes out of bounds, and you can't control it. Does anybody else know what I'm talking about?
Yeah, and then they lower your teamate grade for calling for a bad pass.
They need to fix the delay and lag during online play.
I'm tired of passing the ball to my players, pushing the shoot button... And they just stand there. Tired of passing the ball to players cutting to the basket for wide open dunks/layups and they just keep running or don't shoot it after I push the button.
That online delay is something fierce.
And they need to fix the servers. I barely play crew games because it's so hard to find a match. Usuall, the match won't even start up, but a lot of times when it does start up, it'll lose connection when I'm picking my player.
NBA Live/Elite sucks, but their servers are WAYY better.
When you look at the leaderboards, there are people that have played like thousands of games. I used to wonder how they were able to get so many games in because it took FOREVER for me just to find match.
Then this one dude told me that you have to switch your timezone. He told me to switch it to London and I started finding matches literally in seconds.
Don't know why it works like that, but 2K needs to fix that too.
I also think it's too easy to drive into lane. Say if you have LeBron on your team. All you gotta too to win is keep drinving full speed (even if there's a crowded lane), and euro-step. The euro is unstoppable, and I think it's too easy to use.
Another thing.. LOOSE BALL FOULS...
I dont know how many times ive been called for a loose ball foul when the guy is nowhere near anyone..
happen to anyone else??
It's not unstoppable. You just have to time your defense right.
When I see the euro coming, I keep moving my defender backwards and then jump up to block the shot after he takes the second step.
Or just switch to the center or power forward and then try to block the shot.
Tezo83... My gamertag on XBox. Add me and I'll show you how to stop all of that cheese lol.
The draft is screwed up. After the top 5 players they all suck. you should be able to draft a player at like 20 and still have him be ok. Maybe they could do something like where they improve a player after he is drafted at random so you have those draft "steels" or "gems" in the late 1st round and 2nd round. I think it would also be a good idea to have a summer league where you can invite players to play in the summer leage and training camp in asociation mode.
Another thing is player morales in acosiation mode. the 6th men are really unhappy alot of the time even if u give then like 30+ mins in the rotation screen. It is quite annoying. I agree that different wingspans and bodytypes would be good too.
Yeah! Exactly, even a 30 year old with rating 75 is unhappy coming off hte bench. And sometimes I have too many good rotation players, so I have to send my good young guys to the D-League.
Yeah the loose ball foul is just outragous! I have never even seen a loose ball foul near the ball and another thing that drives me nuts is when im about to blow by someone with the likes of Derrick Rose and then the other teams C is like right next to me by like Derrick Roses hip and then he can just some how get infront of me and pushes me back with his chest
every draft ends up being like 2003 for the top five and then bad for the rest. lower the top picks ratings, and give lower picks definable skills (3pt shooting or shot blocking, etc) with some weaknesses (those weaknesses being why they weren't drafted higher). also include some in depth factors in the prospects, such as motivation, focus, maturity, attitude, fat %, so that players with 1st round talent may end up falling because of these attributes
Yes and chance of getting injured would be a factor to
And if they make another college hoops 2k they need a range attribute because all of the NBA wing prospects have NBA range and then theres players like Andrew Goudelocke and Jimmmer Fredette who can shoot from 35 feet out and would have like 99 range attribute but normal players like Marcus Morris doesnt really have NBA range in college but he can knock down the open 3 so his range attribute would be like a 10
