I haven't seen this luckily. Just finished a game vs the Jazz and they were daring my backcourt to shoot.

Re: Perimeter Defense Seems Way Too Tight - Smothering

On Superstar and above its definitely a thing, at least when it comes to the type of shot you're able to get off with a defender close by. If you turn on Shot Feedback you'll notice that the mere presence of a defender around a shooter will result in contested shots, even though the defender doesn't challenge it. If you lower the Defense Strength shooting sliders you'll immediately notice that the contest % will drop, to the point that when at 0 every shot will be counted as Wide Open. However, the window to get a Perfect Shot on Superstar/HOF is pretty tight so its still not much easier to hit shots.

On All-Star its a different story as the perfect timing window is a lot bigger and its much easier to shake AI defenders with dribble moves and step backs.

I'm playing on allstar

My only thing as i said earlier, a few days ago it wasn't like this on all star. When I played today, it's like everything changed, players even feel a bit more sluggish.

Green window also felt a bit tighter.

I wouldn't be so frustrated if a few days back I didn't actually play close to the best version of 2k in years. That experience was special but short lived

I don't see alot of footplanting on defense when it comes to change of direction. The defenders change directions and explode into contests a little to quickly right now.

No need to play angles when you can go one direction and explode the opposite way to contest.

No idea then, my last game (earlier tonight) playing as the Heat on All-Star I scored 127 and shot something like 54% overall (45% from 3). For me the issue has definitely popped up on Superstar though, but I also can't make a shot to save my life on that difficulty unless its wide open so that definitely tends to create a snowball effect where I keep getting worse as the game goes on.

Re: Perimeter Defense Seems Way Too Tight - Smothering

Are we talking about contested jumpers not going in at an acceptable clip or are we talking about how the AI defends the ball carrier?

Those are two separate issues

For me they are a related issue because of how "sticky" they are on the ball carrier and recovering from help so quickly that on the higher difficulties they affect the chances of a shot going in drastically by just being in the vicinity (and they always seem to be).

But nevertheless, I haven't felt that the AI is too smothering on All-Star with the exception of some elite perimeter defenders. They aren't slouches either overall though, but its definitely the difficulty that I'm most comfortable with right now, whereas any higher than All-Star for me results in every team defending like the '04 Pistons.
