I wanna hear them take accountability for the fact that Nba 2k21 had the worse defensive mechanics in any basketball Iíve ever played.

Players sliding all over the court
Players not rotating on defense
Terrible defensive canned animations
Getting stuck behind players etc etc
No feet planting on defense etc etc

Just take accountability and FIX these issues and the game would at least be decent. So please, no fun, that just screams ďweíre gonna try a new thing that youíre probably not gonna likeĒ

I believe once one of the devs that were the defensive mind of 2k left to EA is probably the reason why 2k were so bad at being a defensive minded game imo.

Seriously. I don’t think what they’re saying now is the right direction. I don’t want a mini game on defense, I don’t need it to be more “skill based,” just fix the garbage AI and make defense in a basketball game be as it’s supposed to: Functional and something I’ve never (till now) had to pay so much attention to, simply because it always simply worked.

They will never be good defense as long as the offense is so overpowered.

Right. Like the way I’m reading it from them is that if you aren’t an elite defender your defense will suck even MORE? No, just make defending work, that’s all we ask.

And who knows what applies to their AI defense which is the big problem.

I’ve mostly solved it by turning every defensive slider to 100 and literally controlling the other team’s defensive gameplan (rotating defenders onto hot players, doubling hot players) but even then, with super elite players I can drive on an entire team like it’s standing still then use posterizer to dunk on 5 people.

Yes...how about they start by TRIMMING down the damn badges on offense and let good ol' ratings do there thing.

The other option is maybe go the route of APF2k8 and just not show ratings at all and just give players a set number of badges.

Lol the guy that was the head of the defensive gameplay left for NBA Live. The defense has been complete garbage since he took over in 15. Now that he’s gone I’m expecting the defense to be leaps and bounds better.
