Re: NBA 2K20 wishlist thread
These are just my biggest gripes concerning 2K19 and wishes for 2K20, broken up by Gameplay, MyLeague/MyGM, and MyCareer
-FIX THE SCREENS PLEASE. The brick wall suction screens trapping me in animations without me even moving my defender have to go. And on offense, can y'all do something more like Live where you hold the screen button and tell them when to roll/pop? It would make it easier to do slip screens and would stop defenders from just running into the screen early to make them roll when you don't want them to yet.
-Pressure sensitive steal button or something. Sometimes you press the steal button and they just swipe and sometimes they go all in streetball mode and reach super hard. Maybe steal by itself is a swipe and turbo+steal is the aggressive reach?
-I don’t remember if this was a problem in 18, but 2K19 has a serious issue with its fast break defense. Why does the CPU play that weird, scripted zone defense when getting back, leaving the corners and/or paint open? Please have the AI actually pick up their man in transition.
-Can we get a button command that tells the CPU to switch on a pick & roll? I swear sometimes the AI just ignores hedge/screen settings randomly and tries to switch anyways. I’d like a “No Switch” setting too.
-This is more customization I guess, but there are many awful-looking jumpers in this game. Just looking at the Spurs who I use most often…Aldridge, White, Forbes, Bertans, Belinelli, and Murray all have jumpshots that look nothing like in real life.
-Another customization thing and it’s kinda small but…more hair colors? In MyCareer, you can get hot pink and yellow and purple and all that, but in MyLeague/MyGM and regular create-a-player there’s like black, brown, and that really ugly-looking blonde (why does the blonde hair look so nasty btw).
-The biggest thing to me is the awful DRAFT CLASSES. Why are all the rookies like 22-23? Why are they all injury prone and have glass knees/feet/ankles? Why are there so many guys with low head/neck durability? What is the NCAA doing to these boys? There are PGs with 60s speed and ball control and 7’1” centers with 80+ vertical in every class. Why
-Dynamic tendencies to go along with the training. Maybe to go along with the training, we can tell a player to “focus on shooting more 3s” or get them to contest more shots to go along with their improved shot blocking skills.
-CPU team building needs improvement. I don’t know what causes it but teams always end up signing like 5 PGs or 5 Cs or something. In one franchise, the Knicks signed Thomas Bryant, Dwight Howard, AND Brook Lopez all in free agency even with Mitchell Robinson on the team still and neglected to sign any PFs or SFs. Also there are always free agents that go unsigned because AI teams are building their rosters stupidly.
-It takes too long to find games. Need matchmaking of some sort. “Got Next” is a good idea in theory but doesn’t work with a community that dodges games for all kinds of dumb reasons. Squads are cool but there should be more courts with no squad spots. When I try to play without my friends, it can legit take 30-45 minutes to find a game even with me jumping from park to park. That’s ridiculous.
-Make the grind to high OVR faster PLEASE. I don’t have endless hours to play trying to fill that bar to build my attributes and I would think most other people don’t have that kind of time either.
-Get rid of archetypes if you are incapable of balancing them. I thought sharpshooters would be nerfed in 19 and they’re even worse than the last game. Go back to how it was where you picked how to build your attributes BUT it should be limited more than it was before. If I want a sharpshooter, I should have to dump all my level-ups or attribute increases or whatever you call them in my shooting and sacrifice in every other area of the game. This would allow us to sort of still create archetypes but make them more tailored to how we want them. And then the badges we can get should be in line with how we’re increasing our attributes. For example, I shouldn’t be able to get Defensive Stopper if I’ve been ignoring increasing my defense.
