Unrealistic Shot Contests




Two of 2k21’s biggest problems were defensive rotations and help defense. Czar has done a great job with defensive rotations, and help defense this year and you can’t just parade to the rim. I thought that the shot contest system from last year was solid.

This year the shot contest system is not solid, and it is unrealistic. Defense was not good last year, and they turned up every aspect of defense for 2k22. So I understand why we are having these types of contests. The rotations and help defense are excellent, but they made the CPU on ball defense and shot contest to much.

I don’t mind Johnathon Issac or Scottie Pippen getting around screens, and instant contestsing to show the difference between a good and bad defender. However, the instant contests from 6 or 7 feet away from every defender is to much. We should be able to tell the difference between good and bad defenders just like last year.

2k needs to tweak this to open up jumpers. The CPU is already going under most screens, and playing sticky on ball defense. There is no reason to make a high percentage of shots contested off of the pick and roll when the defender is going under.

Re: Unrealistic Shot Contests

The second shot was only 5% contested. You just gotta time it better my dude.

Edit
Also I wanna mention that I've made shots with Beal that have been contested in the 30-40% range. So it's not like 5% contested is impossible to make.

I have no problem with the shot timing or the shooting. I stink at shooting the ball, and I think that the shooting system is fine. I didn’t make the video because I was missing shots. The video was about the timing, manner and distance of the contests.

Appreciate the feedback though. I do have to learn how to shoot and get better with my timing. Yes I have made jumpers with 50 percent contest.

This is why we can never have a good game.

Rather than practicing, everytime there's a game with good defense thr complaints start rolling in.

Re: Unrealistic Shot Contests

Good lord. Y’all need to really lay off this dude

He’s not saying the game is bad, or too hard, or that he can’t score

He made a legitimate argument about the crazy unrealistic shot contests.

He’s not even really talking about shot contest percentages, it’s just the way every AI defender can seemingly contest a shot from all the way on the other side of the court when you’re miles away from him.

No one is saying they want the game to be easy.
