Been testing this a lot recently in Triple Threat Online and i’m not too sure how i feel about it yet. On one hand, i love that the pull up mid range game is actually viable for once in 2K.
Those who truly know bball, you know that one of the things that makes guys like Kobe, MJ, KD, Kawhi, Dame, Steph so hard to guard is the fact that they can get to their spot on the floor, stop on a dime, and pull up for a jumper. It’s a nightmare to guard IRL. I like the fact that we can do that with legit success in 2K. It opens up the offense a bit and adds another element to scoring.
But on the other hand, i think the pull up/leaners are a tad bit OP. Especially when you use the shot stick. You can aim that thing for like 5 seconds it feels like. The “leaners” or “fades” should not be so easy to hit because people will start to run side to side and just shoot them all game.
So i’m kinda torn on this right now. I’ve only been playing TTO because the shooting isn’t easy there. I’m not touching Unlimited again until they revert the shooting hotfix as its too easy to shoot in that mode right now.
LOVE that we can play like Kobe and actually have success with the pull up jumper consistently, but i think it needs to be toned down just a tiny bit for balancing purposes
