NBA Live 18: Realism/CPU Tendencies Sliders (Dec. 2017) | Updated 01/07

December 24, 2017 3 comments

NBA LIVE 18 The One Edition (79)

Updated 12/30 2017: Sliders marked in this colour have been modified. EA added some new animations and better collision detection, so turning down the offensive ground slider creates more effective screens. I turned down the offensive rebound sliders and balanced them between user and cpu. The adjustments are mainly for off-ball collisions which I think is much better now.

UPDATE 01/07/ 2018: Since I’ve posted these, there has been some improvements to game play, the game can be played closer to default sliders, with minimal adjustments. differences in the RED are the new adjustments. You can still use the old ones, but some of the sliders don’t need to be all the way up or down. 

What I was trying to accomplish with these sliders is to get the CPU to take more shots in the mid-range area whether it be a good shot or a bad shot. We (players) all have a tendency to reach on defense, but with the dribble move and Jostle vs Blow-by sliders set real low, if you reach you will be out of position and the CPU will take advantage. The key is to NOT play the CPU too close, watch your match ups and use the right stick to stay in front of your man. I’ve played a ton of match ups to see if there’s any consistency with different teams, and I believe there is. You don’t have to use the sliders how they are, but I recommend you use them exactly how I have them, because if you turn anything up, you’re either giving yourself or the CPU advantages. For instance, I turned up the Jostle vs Blow-By slider to 30, and Lillard kept going to the basket, I put it back down to 20, and he was being more methodical with his offense, and the ball was moving and respecting the defense. I’m still not sure about the offensive rebound slider, because since I’ve took them off 0, there’s a lot more rebound dunks. Sometimes the trick is to control the one under the basket and box out their top rebounder (Whiteside for example) and let the CPU grab the rebound.

In 12 minute quarters, both user and CPU will shoot below the 50’s, while shots that SHOULD go in actually do, unlike my last slider set where it felt that no matter how open you were, you would miss a shot for the sake of shooting percentages. These sliders aren’t perfect, but they’re better than my last ones. If the shooting feels too easy, just turn down the shots sliders for the USER only. If you think the CPU is hitting everything, just play the game out, if you know how to play defense in this game, the percentages will drop. In the Cavs vs Warriors game below, I went on a legit 19-0 run to get back in the game, and won by 4. Play the game out before you tinker with them, and also hit me up with some feedback as well.

The game flows well with these, check out the Orlando vs Miami game for the game play. Fouls are subjective, but I got a fair amount of them vs the CPU and vice versa.

These charts are the CPU’s shot chart. Notice a lot more mid-range shots taken. More will be updated in the future.

Some game play below:

Cavs vs Warriors: This game is an example of why I turned down the Jostle vs Blow-by sliders to 20, for some reason it reset to 30, and the CPU kept going into the paint.

Raptors vs Bucks:
