Downright unplayable from a strategists point of view. No motion or play art on offense, players standing around unless you call a screen, no defensive settings, no A.I court spacing logic, no A.I defensive help logic.
I know it’s a really unpopular opinion, but TTO really shouldn’t be the only way to get free diamond/PD/Opal cards. If they’re gonna continue with this mode in the future, at least add 5 v 5 elements like motion plays and defensive settings.
Taking 3v3 out of MyTeam leads to stale games like 2k18 where there was no quick modes to play and earn MT. I suggest learning to adapt to the stupid problem it has. My players keep sagging off 3s so I switch between off ball and on ball to fix that.
TTO is great. Few changes needed of course, but the mode itself is a step in the right direction. Lots of the bad things are failures of the actual in game systems lol. Help defense of course is a huge one, off ball, contests, inside shots.
Off-ball screening action and post ups are the only 2 things offensively that are missing. I know for a fact that calling for a post up in a normal game spaces automatically makes the CPU space the court. There’s too many times when the CPU acts beyond stupid in TTO and they make nonsensical cuts to the basket and completely clustering the lane with no one to throw it to.
Running a freelance & having playart on changes the entire dynamic of an offense. It actually looks fluid. Defensively, having those 2 extra players helps immensely with rotations and can make up for A.I stupidity with more bodies out there. Plus, you have the option to change it up between man, zone, or press.
