NBA Live 18: Realism Sliders – Nov 2017 (8-12 min Quarters)

October 31, 2017 Leave a comment


What’s up people, it’s that time for the NBA Live 18 November 2017 sliders. With these sliders, I tried to get the CPU to play more methodical and attack less so that playing longer quarters can result in realistic numbers. I believe the “OFF THE DRIBBLE” slider for the CPU is the reason why the CPU constantly attacked the paint all the time, so that’s the reason I turned it down to 20. I’ve tried it on 30-40 but I didn’t like the results. While the CPU will look to score in the paint and also attacking the rim still, they will look at other opportunities on the drive. You will also have to adjust match ups and defensive pressure with these sliders, you might have to put a big defender on CP3 if he’s torching you just to slow him down. If you don’t have a superstar on your team, you may struggle down the stretch also, but you should like challenges. Overall, I think these are the best sliders I have done since the game came out, mainly because I can play longer quarters without getting mad about high shooting percentages, pace is also much more realistic.

*If you want more fouls called just turn up the sliders to your liking. I have reach in fouls set to 0 because I have the automatic fouls, they need to get rid of that. Turning off the reach in fouls (also steal slider) allows you to crowd the offensive player, but if you reach too much, you can get beat off the dribble, I just prefer it that way*

NBA LIVE 18: Let’s Get Rid of Defensive Assist Button

September 7, 2017 Leave a comment


I believe the defensive assist button is useless this year since you can play solid on ball defense. Rather than having a button to help keep the defender in front of the offensive player, I think it would be more useful for an aggressive defensive stance or defensive modifier. The off-ball controls for it is fine, especially for Live Run, to play keep away, but for mono e mono, to me, it just feels useless. The way NHL uses the LT trigger for manual back skating (if you have auto-back skate turned off), enables you to maneuver way better on defense. When you get beat by the offensive player you would release the trigger and your controlled player turns around by your control. It could also be used to switch up your defensive position as well if you want to force the offensive player one way. NBA Live is too contextual in that part of the game, but if it were more user controlled, it could make defense more challenging, but rewarding at the same time, in my opinion. More ways to give the user control is always a good thing.

Also, another idea for defensive controls, you should be able to use the D-pad to communicate on defense. For instance, the current controls are just set for defensive quick formations, but what if you had controls to communicate with your teammates on the fly, defensively. The LT would modify defensive controls on the D-pad and you can tell the closest defender what to do. You want him to slip the pick? You want your teammate to send the defender baseline or to the middle etc. It would be good for the created player mode, if anything just to keep the user engaged on what’s happening on the floor, rather than just sitting in the corner guarding your assignment.

What do you think?
