I think people spend more time on OS complaining than they do actually playing the game. IMO, most of the complaints aren't to help the game get better. It's just how some have fun.
I am not complaining about the game play, I am complaining that they took out something and never have put it back in. If I could get editing ratings in CFM, I would be happy.

Major difference, as CM Hoe stated earlier in the thread, is NBA 2k doesn't have litigation's holding them back.

If litigation's in the future and past are holding things up, I don't know if we'll see editable rosters in the future.

If that is not the issue, I see no other reason holding back on another option.

Did EA come out say it was cause of litigation? And Ea is appealing the judgement, its gonna be years before anything happens. If that is the case, why can we still edit them outside of CFM.

Re: Why can't madden bring back franchise?

Frankly, I'm surprised that NBA 2K hasn't become subject to litigation at this point. People are making college players for that just as they were in NCAA Football (granted, not as egregiously; there is no longer a college basketball game to source players from, and NCAA Football was going out of its way to mimic real life as much as they could without using names specifically). If EA can get slapped on the wrist for enabling the use of "amateur" likenesses in their games, why not 2K?

On the flip side, with the O'Bannon ruling coming down the way it did (pending appeal), I wonder if - down the road - EA Sports would approach rising seniors about being included as part of the game's draft class, or the vice-versa. For example, what if EA and Marcus Mariota / other popular player reached an agreement for him to be in Madden 15 as a QB in the first draft class?

Now that you mention it, I'm kind of surprised no one has gone after the 2K developers for their college games.

EA already agreed to a settlement. The NCAA is the one that is appealing

I think the issue is from EA doing this and making money. Us as a fanbase making them are not making money off of it.
