I’m not in front of console so I can’t contribute anything right now. But want to kick-start this, anyway…
Anyone who’s willing to contribute, please reply in this topic and post any coach(es) you have, with a list of the boosts, and magnitude of boosts, that they give.
UPDATE: I THINK I GET HOW COACHES WORK TOTALLY NOW, EXCEPT WHETHER OR NOT PG AND SG HAVE SAME RATINGS BOOSTS. THE DATA WILL BE BEST DISPLAYED IN A TABLE/MATRIX.
There are 8 Systems, according to the Dev Blog, and I assume they are the same as the 8 that existed in 2K18:
Grit & Grind
Pace & Space
NOTES ON HOW COACHES WORK
There are five “grades” of System proficiency: Poor, Average, Good, Great, Excellent (is there anything above Excellent?)
It seems all Tiers of Coaches can have same maximum number of different Ratings that get boosted.
The higher the tier of the Coach, the bigger the Ratings boost is. (I.e. +1 for Bronze vs. +5 for Diamond.)
It seems that the “Fit” of a Player to a System determines the number of Ratings boosts that they get from a coach. E.g. “Good” gets 4 boosts, “Great” gets 5 boosts, “Excellent” gets 6.
Poor gets 2 boosts, and an extra Rating is boosted with each increase in proficiency.
The Ratings that are boosted depend on position. SF, PF, and C are all different and SF is different from SG. Don’t know yet if PG and SG are same.
Position played doesn’t matter. There is no out-of-position penalty. Only coded position matters.
You only need to check the boosts for the highest level of proficiency, as that will tell you what is boosted for each level of proficiency below.
HOW TO GET THE NECESSARY DATA
You don’t need to test multiple Tiers of Coaches with same System.
You don’t need to test multiple players from a position with different proficiency grades. Just the highest proficiency grade you have.
Not sure yet, but we need to have every position tested: PG, SG, SF, PF, C.
We only need to get data for 1 coach from each of 8 Systems, and hopefully Excellent player for each position.
This chart reflects all the Systems/Positions for which we have complete/“Excellent” list of ratings boosts. “X” means we have Excellent. If not X, then something less than Excellent, in which case we still have X out of Y of the list…
Grit & Grind
Pace & Space
If you can please try to format your contributions to make copy and paste in the master list easy. A sample:
Actually, shit, I’m sorry I didn’t look closer before…what I actually needed was just your LBJ list, because I already laid out a Balanced coach and SF was one of the positions for which I don’t have anyone Excellent.
For Balanced, we’re still missing the 6th/Excellent boost for SG, PF, and C.
I need to edit top post to reflect systems/positions covered…
