Just a heads up that Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 2021 First Access began yesterday. If interested, worth checking out. Keep in mind this is NOT the official release, but an opportunity to see an early version with a discount, while being able to provide feedback.

Wow... realworld mod and photos mod really make the game feel alive, thanks slybelle and GM games.

Think I'll start with the Timberwolves since they have the 1st pick.

Congrats on the new UI, looks really good!

I'm more into the College game, but might give this a shoot as well.

It's worth a shot if you like pro basketball as it offers a different experience. If unsure, could always wait until the full release as they always make a FREE demo available at that time.

Thanks....I much prefer a realworld experience vs fictional so having these mods is a must for me Glad you like them, I know Chris from GM Games put a lot of time and effort into all those photos, courts, etc.

They estimate a FULL release on 11/19/2020 so I would expect Steam keys to be available around then. You do get a Steam key if you participate in First Access as well, here is the info:

Pre-order and receive license key immediately to download and play beta builds. All pre-orders will be eligible to receive complementary Steam key upon final release. Use coupon code PB21FIRST to save 10% on your pre-order.

To learn more about our FirstAccess process and on what to expect please visit All About FirstAccess - Wolverine Studios

Get yourself ready for the deepest, most realistic basketball sim available today. No game gives you a better feeling of being a basketball GM. Enjoy the most exciting draft experience of any sports game and build a basketball dynasty today!

Yes you can do an online league as you would the same with any of these types of games.

As for is it fun - obviously I think so but before you jump in and pre-order let me try and help.

1. Blog post detailed some of the new things this year at Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 2021 FirstAccess Begins Today! - Wolverine Studios

2. Screens, trailer, short description at Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 2021 - Wolverine Studios

3. Wolverine Studios - YouTube is our YouTube channel which contains weeks and weeks of developer dynasty videos so that you can see for yourself what the game does

4. Twitch is our Twitch channel - we will be continuing the developer dynasties up to the final release. Shows are Tuesday nights (including tonight) from 7:30-8:00 PM Eastern

5. Once the game is fully released (likely 11/19) there will be a free demo. I encourage you to try it out for yourself at that point if you aren't 100% sold by any of the above.

If you enjoy a basketball text simulation that focuses on being the GM/coach, then without a doubt this is a fun and very good game. I have no experience with Jumpshot Basketball so I can't compare it to that.

As Gary mentioned, if your unsure, wait for the demo and give it a try...although if you do wait, you lose out on the discount and an included steam key

Although I think you figured it out, just in case not or others have the same question, located under the "hamburger" menu in the upper left-hand corner of the window.

I'm having fun with it but several parts are tedious.

Free Agency, the production thereof, flat out sucks. Only options are advance one day, or advance til the end? How about advance a week, or advance til someone makes a decision on my offer. It's borderline painful clicking advance a day, and then clicking the results screen for NO action at all. like streamline that. Otherwise it's solid

The D-League draft makes me want to eat a pistol.

need a better way to run a trade block. Like how OOTP will offer your guy out to every team so you can get some offers back.

Outside of those couple things, I enjoy the game. But the parts I hate i really hate.

Also my PC should be a monster at processing this stuff and it seems way slower than I'd think it would be at certain points.

Since this is still in FIRST ACCESS, might want to post these in the official forums as the developer continues to make enhancements/changes before release.

1) No idea how hard to implement or a reason its not, but seems like a good idea if possible to have more options for controlling the FA period.

2) Curious, what is bad about the d-league draft? If your not controlling a d-league team, then pretty much just watching. But if you are in control of d-league team, you need to be able to draft your teams.

3) You can put your players on the trade block where you will get offers from other teams, but maybe your meaning some specific way to do that. Right now you can go to trade screen and place them on the block and then wait for offers. There is also a get offers button on the trade screen that you can try and get immediate offers for players, if someone else is interested.

4) There are a couple of stages where things can be a little slower, for me in free agency and importing draft pools. I just assumed a lot of stuff going on at those times.
