Update Additions:

  • Donald Sloan - Cavs - Real CF
  • Chris Copeland - Knicks - Created CAP
  • Dequan Jones - Magic - Created CAP
  • Joel Freeland - Blazers - Created CAP
*Notes for new update:

It looks like we have found out that the 2Kinsider’s previous excuse of not being able to add unguaranteed contracts due to legal matters has now been confirmed false. He added 3 unguaranteed contract players in this update, along with only updated players who have real CF on the disc with downloaded generic CAPS instead.Couple that with the fact that although he added a decent amount of players in this update along with Jerseys additions, he still failed to properly add in the remaining guaranteed contract players. He has also failed to update positions correctly as many are still not positioned correctly (*see below for list). He also has not correctly set lineups as for example “Amare Stoudemire is still ACTIVE despite being out for weeks.

Why was Joel Freeland added to Portland with a CAP face when his cyberface is actually on the game?

Please here me out, I really enjoy your game (NBA 2k13) but I feel the only thing that's kept me from playing it as of late is the lack of authentic rosters/sig shots/equipment/players.

Victor Claver is still missing for Portland when he's guaranteed a three year deal? When he is inevitably added to the game PLEASE use his cyberface (which is already on the disk) and please update Joel Freeland whom you most recently added without his cyber face even though it's already on the disk? Please add Freeland's cyberface to his player model on 2k13 as it's already created, ready to use on the disk?

J.J Hickson has been playing lights out lately (10 & 10) and his rebound ratings should reflect that. Batum has progressed significantly since last season, and is a much better ball handler/distributor than 2k gives him credit for.

I know I sent in a request to change Lillard's jumper already, but it's off and I've found a PERFECT combo posted below. I've also requested a few others jumpers be updated as they're incorrect.

I'm just doing my best to ensure that the Portland Trailblazers are accurately reflected in 2k13. You can easily dismiss this entire message and carry on about your day, however, I and others would greatly appreciate it if this list was passed onto the 2k Insider. Please and Thank you

Ratings suggestions

JJ Hickson has been rebounding his tail off

Damian Lillard's mid and 3pt could use a boost

Batum could use an all around boost (especially midrange, ball handling)
around boost (especially midrange)
# 2 DeemDaDream @ 11/17/12 10:40 AM
I agree with most of this stuff. But the positions for some of those players mentioned dont need to be changed. J.J Hickson is a PF but hes playing out of position. Wilson Chandler is not a PF at all. Barbosa is a SG playing the role of a back-up point because of necessity. Nene is a Center. When he comes back he will likely be playing C. Okafor played PF before becoming a hornet
# 3 Gangrel @ 11/17/12 11:01 AM
PC Rosters aren't updated yet either..... wonder if they use the PS3 ones?
# 4 PrettyT11 @ 11/17/12 11:19 AM
Still no update yet on PS3.
# 5 ksuttonjr76 @ 11/17/12 11:21 AM
Indiana Pacers

Roy Hibbert
INS - 94 to 91
CLOSE - 83 to 81
LPO -80 to 76
BLK - 86 to 88 (Increase)
OREB - 89 to 93 (Increase)
DREB - 75 to 72
OAWR - 77 to 68
PFADE - 79 to 75
PHOOK - 95 to 86
CNST - 70 to 55

No other changes.

I can't complain, because the changes were fair. At least he noticed that Hibbert's OREB and BLK/GM went up from last year. I'm still mad that Paul George is listed at 6'8" instead of 6'10.
# 6 Majingir @ 11/17/12 11:49 AM
Nice to see Derozan finally got increased. Just sucks though how JV isn't getting increased.

8 points,5 rebounds,almost .500FG% in 20 mins per game average

The staff ones are bad too. Some guys have been there for over a year, and they're still not in the game. And about the Raptors...is their scout really making as much money as 2K claims he is? Cause that seems so high, especially when you compare it to the best scouts available once you're allowed to sign scouts.
# 8 knick9mm @ 11/17/12 12:36 PM
If they're gonna add CAPs, why not just add everyone one missing. That can't take more than 2 hours to make all those CAPs

That's great.
# 11 TeamBuilder @ 11/17/12 12:58 PM
Please add to the Master List that career statistics are wrong for all players who have missed a season in their career.

Brandon Roy
Andrei Kirilenko
Greg Oden
Jeff Green
# 12 mezezezah @ 11/17/12 01:01 PM
How is Drummond a 59 overall? Have they looked at his per 36 stats? Also Asik should definitely have higher rebounding stats, actually they should have changed that like two years ago.
# 13 Blue.Gazer @ 11/17/12 01:04 PM
still no update for PS3 (Canada)

Afraid that a Black-Arm Fix is discovered? He's black-armed, so if he's fixed, it's possible for roster makers to get Kareem, Dr J, the entire 92-93 Suns team, the DLC players from last year, and the left over hiddens, fixed.
# 15 Blackhail92 @ 11/17/12 01:46 PM
to all those who still think melo doesnt need an update. please explain to me why Al jeffersons offense is a 93. but melos is an 88?

Last I checked Jefferson is a 84 and Melo is a 89?

Very simple. You do realize that what you are asking about is position based. Besides that Jefferson is well known for having one of if not the best post games in the NBA. And lastly Jefferson is the more efficient offensive player. Last season Jefferson not only had the higher FG percentage but also the higher eFG% and the higher PER. Not only that but Jefferson also had the higher offensive rating and more offensive win shares. Clearly this is one that 2K got right.

You keep yelling about Melo getting a raise but when logic is posted to tell you why he doesn't deserve one you have no response.
# 18 LionsFanNJ @ 11/17/12 02:20 PM
Anyone who downloaded, does any of the unis show up in your active associations? I'm hoping the uniforms show up in settings and not roster file specific for us custom roster users.

If not we have to wait for when 2k thinks we're worthy of having the codes.

Edit: ah nevermind, it isn't available for PS3. Users yet. Disregard
# 19 Slicknick75 @ 11/17/12 02:21 PM
Has anyone gotten the most recent update for PS3? And if not, has anyone heard why it is delayed?

They are tied to the roster. They use to post the codes with the blog that went with the roster update but that blog doesn't exist anymore. Who knows how are when we get them now.
