    Please tell me "General tuning and bug fixes" for game play means the outrageously high made shot %, especially contested shots, and the ability for a defender or complete lack of ability to defend these shots, are a couple of the tuning and bugs that's been adjusted!?!???? And how about all the animations like how passing out of a shot sends the ball to outer space nearly every time!? I was a point guard for 13 years and I can honestly I never threw a ball into the upper rows of the bleachers and I successfully reached my intended target 9/10 times maybe 8 at worst. How about this boundary line!? Is it a an impenetrable forcefield or a black hole sucking everyone inside it? Needs to be one or the other. U, a.I. Shouldn't control the outcome of games as much as it does. Only things like skill level. Bball iq. Team play. Etc. Not some dumb animation or those G.O.A.T cpu players u fill lobbies with! Hell, they know where I'm going before I ever know! Also, why are my teammates I pass it to sometimes outta bounds?!? Who they talking to? I could and probably should keep going with all I'm hoping has been addressed but I gotta high school boys basketball team to coach. Hopin I can get em all shooting 75+% like we all do on live 19.

  • Were the City basketball jerseys
  • We need some attention in Play Now H2H - we need a team tier system! I use Orlando or Chicago...but I'm playing "high" ranked players that just cheese with golden state or LBJ...they don't play their OWN Defense and they run around in circles and hit half court 3s with KD or Curry...wheres the skill??? Orlando shouldn't be in the same tier as GS...we need DNF% on MATCHUP screen...i feel like there is little to no attention given to ONLINE H2H...come one live I spend my hard earn $$$ to support your product! 2K steals ideas from LiVE all day!! ! Forget the moral high ground...take ideas from them too!!! On the fly coaching is a joke...players can intercept passes behind their head...all sorts of craziness...and on top of that...if I start leading the game...it coincidently "disconnects" every time.. ..like... what's good?!! EA??
  • first off, sorry for the post with all caps. I'd literally just gotten off Live not minutes before posting it. needless to say, I was a little frustrated. anyway, I just got done with the HUGE 11gb update. how long before some of the stuff mentioned above actually come in to affect? i just tried to play a live event with only A.I. and wasn't able to. thanks for ur feedback.
  • What is the update to gameplay?! All that cosmetic stuff means nothing ATM if the gameplay doesn't get same respect, and if the game is unplayable due to the lack of it.
  • What about roster updates online head to head players that have been traded? Also players that are currently injured should be out.
  • Think y'all can add back when we could use any color sleeve in the league mode
  • This is the gameplay tuning everyone and its messed up

  • Lol so a 9.6GB update and there’s still no City Jerseys or new shoe models lol okay it’s starting just like it did last year. Haven’t even added the Butler trade yet. Again just like last year it somehow take you guys a month if not more to do this stuff and 2k has it done in a few days

  • Can we please get a update on the game play alone. The game itself is great, but the game play really needs update very badly. If u got everyone out doing the same crossovers then it makes the game no fun at. On defense it's very frustrating to me when someone goes up to shoot, and I try for a block and my player dont at least try and jump up. This lag/delay is killing me. It would be nice to see my player try. We need the fundamental of real basketball in Live 19. Please EA make some adjustments to the game play. I was so irritated with the new update that I almost went out and bought 2k which I dont want to do.
  • Yup gameplay gameplay gameplay. Needs work, but I’m not gonna give up on live, said I would support no matter what. So please return the favor with fixing gameplay for your loyal fans and supporters. Thank 🙏
