The Dunk Meter sucks.

If the timing of it made sense it would be a great new addition… the dunk meter green isnt at the jump, nor when the ball is actually dunked. It feels completely random, each dunk has its own timing which is impossible to predict.

Also, you barely get to enjoy it because youre focused on a stupid mini game, taking the excitement away of maybe the most exciting play in basketball.

Timing on jump shots make sense and the release window also makes sense, thats why it works. You can even shoot with the shot meter off and make shots.

But this dunk meter just sucks. Probably the worst thing about the game for me.

Edit: we should absolutely have the option to turn it off.

And as far as I know most of the contact dunk animations, plus flashy dunks, are tied to this meter.

I don't like it either. I play with Real FG% on and wish I didn't have to use the meter on dunks or alley-oops.

Yeah I understand that thought but you should be able to disable it

Re: The Dunk Meter sucks.

Good idea, poor execution IMO along with the alley oop meter. It's distracting placement and odd timing is what makes it frustrating for some.

Wouldnt mind it returning cleaned up. It's not the only way to get posters though, BTW

I like it. Gives us the option to dunk without it being automatic. The placement is an issue.

And Im still not sure what Im looking at with the oop meter.

Re: The Dunk Meter sucks.

Personally I never used it since I'm a defensive center BUT I absolutely love it when a slasher tries to dunk on me using the meter. Some nice contact physics animations occur whenever I get a block. I hope they keep it for next year since the meter dunk is optional now if the player wants to use it.
