The Lamborghini jut turned into a Honda...

It’s hard to drive a Honda when you’ve been driving a Lamborghini. Make sense? Last seasons version was way better and it’s hard to play one that’s way worse. Okay there is a lot of good but so much decline from last seasons set up. There are hardly any achievements in comparison to last season. Part of the fun when you get to the spot in the game where you aren’t working on sets was looking up different achievements to complete for rewards.. that’s gone. Just read that this new update is supposed to fix league achievement.. didn’t work. No fan fav rewards for league play on my end. Loved the aspect of having multiple different lineups to build. I could spend more time on the game creating 5 perfect line ups with different boosts. I love the bench and the coaches, but say I want to switch coach and game style, there is now way to do that quickly or efficiently. If you still had multiple lineups we could build diff lineups with diff coaches and easily build better teams. No idea why that was abandoned. The games way harder which is fine in a way, but offensive and defensive rebounding and general defense is terrible and there’s nothing a user can do as far as in game play that can affect that. Old version of this game was definitely better. Please add more lineups that can be saved and used, add WAY more achievements throughout the game. Adjust gameplay a bit make those changes and you change my 2 star rating to 5.

New season!!

I’m disgusted! I went from having a good game to making it the worst why: 1 the cpu has too much advantage this guys literally doesn’t miss a shot, they move faster while your players literally just stands there and they slow coming back on defense very slow I mean I have an 83 average most of the time my players is better than theirs so why they moving so slow🤔🤔 is like the cpu is playing in super hard mode. 2. Usually pressing and holding the guard button allows you to stuck to your player wherever he goes that doesn’t work no more, I have to chase you around with the analog stick with a slow defense now it makes it more difficult to guard with a cpu that’s not missing no shoots no matter the rating even if I’m tightly guarding them they still make the shot. I don’t like it. Last season the players will display their ball game on the court exactly how they was rated this season I noticed I’m playing against 50, 60, 70 average teams and they not missing a shot I’m an 83 average Im moving slower than them on defense. What! Is like the computer is basically telling you how the game is going to go.

Cool Teambuilding. Horrible Gameplay

Title says it all. I still enjoy this game because the overall design and variety are really good and interesting. The gameplay might as well be scrapped and rebuilt from scratch though. Like someone else said the buttons don’t seem to do what they should. It seems impossible to choose the target for passes. Pressing Guard on defense causes my player to have a short seizure that allows opposition to drive past easily. At no time do any players hustle to get back on defense or try and fast break. The game randomly changes defensive players - typically to the one most likely to cause a basket for the computer. Selecting shoot while moving sometimes shoots. Other times my player runs to the baseline and shoots into the side of the backboard. Lastly player ratings seem to have very little bearing on actual play. Maybe 3 Stars is too many but somehow I still get some enjoyment out of this game.
