NBA LIVE 18: Some Ideas for Improving Game Play

August 17, 2017 Leave a comment

NBA LIVE 18 DEMO (7)

  1. Tone down the rebound dunks
    1. I’ve adjusted the sliders and it seemed to tone it down
  2. Free throw
    1. Window MAY be too short
    2. I think you can reduce the speed of the shot meter for better shooters
  3. Torpedo standing dunk
    1. Seems to be unstoppable
    2. There’s no gather before it which makes it annoying
    3. It gets the crowd fired up, but its UGLY
    4. There’s always an ugly dunk in Live, I would rather see an off the glass lay up
  4. Dribbling
    1. Automatic size up should be user triggered, if it’s going to be contextual, shorten the window a bit more for it to trigger. I think this would help when having a mismatch
    2. I’m still not a fan of doing the half circle motion for behind the back dribbles. I would rather have the control switched for the step back dribble
  5. Setting screens
    1. At times the screener doesn’t even screen the defender, or the screen is so weak that it allows the defender to easily go above the screen into the ball handler.
  6. Hand Up animations on the right stick
    1. It’s too slow to trigger at times
    2. I’d suggest changing its usage in the future to be more stance based with the LT button to manually crowd the defender or cut off the ball handler. Just an idea.
    3. Takes too long for defender to get their hand up when pressing up on the RS (might have been tweaked?)
  7. Sliding (mainly on defense)
    1. Fixable problem, it was tuned properly in Live 16, but these players are wearing sneakers, we should be able to stop on a dime no matter what we are doing on the floor.
    2. Might be a momentum issue that needs to be tweaked
    3. I still would want player movement sliders in future games (Like NHL series)
  8. Boxing out
    1. Would like to see more boxing out in the paint, players should be looking for a body when the shot goes up, even though NBA Player don’t like to box out
    2. Put backs are pre-determined, need more ways to cancel it out. Maybe have tap backs (If they’re in the game I haven’t seen one yet)
  9. Big men breaking down defenders from the perimeter
    1. Tristan Thompson and KLove can some how get into the lane from the three-point line and dunk on my whole team.
  10. Blocks
    1. Some of the blocks are too hard hitting. The ones that fly out of bounds especially. Need to have more loose ball situations rather than have a ball sail out of bounds giving the offensive team another possession.
    2. Kevin Love’s block rating might be too high (he shouldn’t be pinning my shot off the glass). Some of those animations should be reserved for certain big men. Maybe add them as defensive signature blocks.
  11. Need to reduce And1’s
    1. It’s too easy to get and1’s, it’s almost like it’s guaranteed to go in.
    2. NBA Live 09 had a slider for the ability to make tough finishes, something like that would be ideal. (I still need to experience this on 8 min quarters as the game tends to balance itself out)
  12. Celebrations
    1. Allow players to trigger celebrations like in Live Run
    2. Certain celebrations should be only for certain type of players
    3. More flamboyant, cocky players should only have the outrageous celebrations
  13. Automatic reach in fouls
    1. Should only happen when a person is excessively pressing the button to reach-in
    2. Feels like bail out calls, especially when you feel you timed it right for the steal.
  14. Live Run
    1. Give penalties for players that don’t spread the floor properly. Too many players chase the ball handler
    2. Slow down the game play, JUST a little bit
  15. Shot Clock glitch
    1. You get a shot clock violation even when you get the shot off on time (this was a problem in Live 16 also). The timing is off. If you shoot the ball under a second, its a violation. 

*Note, these are things that I’ve noticed when playing that happened in the game with sliders adjustments and non-slider adjustments*

Some additional requests long-term requests

  1. Replays between quarters look terrible slow paced, would rather see those in real time, the majority of the time. Only time they should be slowed down is when showing the highlight
  2. We desperately need between quarter adjustments for match ups, line up changes, and general coaching changes. A way to implement it is to put a time out before quarters so you can make those changes.

I’ll have more but I think the list is pretty extensive from what I’ve experience in playing the demo.
