So idk truly what the equalizer is but I assumed it was when 2k makes your beefed up cards play like Kyle singler to make it an even game, correct me if I’m wrong. But anyway, I did a test on my alt account against the nba all star team at the end of dom to see what was different and I found a few things that really surprised me.
First was the foul calls, or lack thereof. I only counted the 100% true foul animations that should basically guarantee you 2 free throws, and I counted 10. I ended the game with like 16 free throws, but left another 20 throws because the game didn’t think I deserved them or something?
Next was the shooting, missing wide opens and opens. I counted 8 missed wide opens and 7 missed opens. I understand not every shot goes, I can live with that. But there was a time at like the end of the 3rd quarter I missed 6 amazing shots in a row with diamond green Kyrie, PD AI, and badged Amy Durant.
The last thing I wanted to note was the reach in fouls, not only was my computers ripping at any person with the ball, but i had 4 fouls with AI at the end of the 1st to test if they called it more. The entirety of dom I averaged like 4 steals with AI so I was pretty shocked when I only got 2 and 4 fouls lmao
But anyway TL;DR fuck this equalizer bullshit even against the computers, it can really make me heated.
