NBA 2K21 Information From Mike Wang's Twitter

*Hey guys, I'm compiling this list from reddit so I'll add more as they're posted.

- The Intimidator badge has been nerfed for NBA 2K21.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293926198678962176

- Dribbling on current-gen and next-gen will be mostly the same.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293923695203766276

- You can still use the button and be very successful. The pro stick just has a wider skill gap. Some will do better with it in comparison, but some will shoot a ton of airballs. My advice is to try both and see what fits you better.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293922417782321152

- Non-shooting builds who don't upgrade shooting attributes will actually struggle to shoot this year.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293931094564196352

- Next-gen MyPlayer builds, badges, and takeovers aren’t the same as current-gen so the saves aren’t compatible.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293929399708839938

- There are more jump shooting fouls when you make contact with the shooter on bad/late contests this year.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293925024118607874

- Everything in today's NBA 2K21 Current-Gen Gameplay blog also applies to Next-Gen, with more news to come.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293921447849541632

- The key to making layups with the Pro Stick this year = instead of holding the stick to the left or right, hold it the direction you want for a brief moment then quickly rotate it toward 12 o’clock to find the ideal aim point.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293932926732705792

- Pro Stick shooting will give a bigger boost than shooting with the meter off.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293926685813792771

- Mike Wang says he wanted to create a skill gap for slashers this year. If you can master pro stick layups, you’ll have a much better chance finishing at the rim contested and through contact.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293937363714895872

- For wide open layups, you can basically ignore timing and aiming and still make it.
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293936424924770305

- The goal is for you to have to be at least in the mid to high 70’s to be a decent threat (at shooting). If people are consistently hitting as a 51, I’ll make a hotfix
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293934362317033472

- No changes to Pro Stick dunking for 2K21.
https://twitter.com/beluba/status/12...336437761?s=21

- NBA 2K21 Team Pro-Am will use competitive sliders
https://twitter.com/Beluba/status/1293955758195740672

- Yeah. let's say you're shooting a post fade by holding at 8 o'clock, you then rotate quickly to 6 o'clock or wherever the ideal aim point is - it moves based on coverage. Then you can either keep holding there once you find it or you can
release RS or tap a trigger to time it.

Glad to hear about changes to Intimidator.Hopefully they get rid of the AoE Bubble and just make your shot contests more effective.
