2K18 IA Defense is TOTALLY broken (with video)

Srs, the CPU NBA 2k18 defense is completely broken this year. After understanding the mechanics of LeBron James dribbling (which is not even the best in this matter) I simply abuse the CPU defense. Look at this video:

https://youtu.be/3bPccHiPWk8

It was 8/8 FG, 100% hit trying for long 5 minutes at SAME PLAY, at the most difficult level of the game (HOF) and increasing the CPU defense sliders.

Try it yourself. Just ask for isolation, put the ball in LeBron's left hand, take the crossover and tighten the turbo.

The game is completely broken for me at this moment.

Oh my goodness! I would kill to be you right now. I can't get away with any dribble moves without having the ball stolen from me

Re: 2K18 IA Defense is TOTALLY broken (with video)

To me, it looks like more of a problem with LeBron's stamina not decreasing quick enough than a defense problem. I expect to see LeBron to be able to pull off a play like that, even against Draymond, though not eight times in a row without needing to go to the bench for a minute.

If it's a defense problem, you'd be able to reproduce the same situation with Jae Crowder or J.R. Smith.

Re: 2K18 IA Defense is TOTALLY broken (with video)

The first time I beat the HOF CPU several years ago, I used the Pacers vs the HOF CPU Bulls on 5 minute quarters. The final score was 56-52. Darren Collison scored all 56 points. I did it by isolating Collison on the wing and using a simple shot fake to create space. I hit 18 threes and two free throws to the ice the game.

My point is that every year, you can find a way to abuse something.

Ultimately, when you play, sometimes it's up to you to decide not to abuse what you know you can.

And if you get inside the real lebron's mind, you will find frustration when his teammate miss a shot. Still, he passes the ball instead of shooting all the time!!!

i think most players can get a good animation going to the rim in this years game, the rating for the most part doesnt even matter, everyone including big men are able to drive and get something good going toward the rim.

Re: 2K18 IA Defense is TOTALLY broken (with video)

Guys, u are funny try to defend the broken game.

But ok, try it yourself.

Just put TURBO BUTTON and use all player to drive. Do not release the control, just put to drive and click TURBO.

U will win all games, with any team.

I make this (like LeBron video) with Kevin Love, JR Smith....

2K18 have ZERO antecipation by the defense, with turbo, u drible any defender.
