Can someone explain the Shot Meter off boost?

Was watching this 2k Labs video and it doesn't make sense. Mike Want says those who turn off the Shot Meter and hit the excellent window will receive a big boost. What I don't understand is why would I need a shot boost if I green my release? Green release is that same thing as the excellent window, right? Green releases go in 100% of the time.

The boost is an increase in the likelihood of getting a green when you do time it correctly, essentially making it slightly easier to get a 100% guaranteed shot.

Imo, 100% guaranteed releases are a flawed idea in the first place. Making it arbitrarily easier for some just based on their preference is worse.

What I don't understand is, if you time it correctly that means excellent release which is a green release.

Are you saying a full bar white is good timing? I never considered full bar whites good timing because my white shots brick.

If you time it perfectly within the green window with meter on on with their example, 55% of the time the game grants you a "green." With meter off that percentage goes up approximately 6 percent. Essentially, yes, full white means you were at or near the green window but were not granted a green.

All told, poor mechanic.

If I get excellent release, which is the green window, why is it 55% and not 100%? Inside the green window means green release and 100% of your shots go in

Sorry, I just never got into the shooting mechanics of this game

Simply put, the green release 'window' (or room for slight error on your part) is increased. So it's not an increase of shots going in, but a slight increase in ability to green.

Thereís no 100% chance to green this year.

This. If you *do* green, it's a guarantee that you make it, but if you release in the green window, it's not a guarantee that you *will* green
