Re: Evidence why next gen pick and roll and help defense needs lots of work still

I even jacked up Play Passing Lanes to 100 and the hedge defender still dropped or switched to defend the drive most of the time. There were a few instances that the hedge abandoned the lane to cover the screener (when the screener was set to Fade instead of Roll), but that was only a few times and that was only with Play Passing Lanes set 75-100. It was rare enough that I can definitely live with it, and the help D was usually strong enough that someone rotating over to help protect the rim almost always made up for the hedge defender sticking to the screener.

Is everyone else seeing the same thing?
This is MUSIC to my my questions is..say I made a roster of my own is this patch tied into the latest/current roster? or will it automatically apply to my user made roster?
