Just played a game that had the looks of it to be the most thrilling game I’ve played in a few weeks. But for some reason it wasn’t thrilling at all. Instead it had my heart pumping and I didn’t trust the game.
Down 10-14 all game, I came back with just 1 min left in the game to tie it into overtime. Then I went up by 12 to end the game.
Why wasn’t it so thrilling?
If I had been playing good competition, it would of been thrilling going down the wire and OT.
If I was able to make open shots, it would of helped the thrill level.
If my opponent wasn’t helped the entire game tremendously, it could of helped.
If my opponents team was closer to or better then my team, maybe more thrill would be happening.
If 2k didn’t make me wait until the last min of the game to have a chance at beating a noob, might help.
Would for sure help me trust the game if it let me play defense.
If the game played fair 90 percent of the time, that might solve most of it.
If it wasn’t so obvious that 2k was dictating that game, I might of felt more in control.
I mean, the guy was walking up to the 3 point line and pulling it way slow. How can I not read n react at all? It would not allow me to play. 5 percent when i was being more then froze for no reason. IT simply would not let me play defense and made my offense suffer when wipe the heck open.
Here we go again with the “oh my, I almost lost a game. Clearly it was the games fault and not mine.”
So how does a game play fair when it’s based off of ratings and probabilities? Even if your shot is supposed to go in 80% of the time, there’s still a 20% chance you’ll miss. There’s a chance you can miss multiple times in a row.
This is why 2k can’t make this game realistic anymore. Could you imagine the amount of crying that would happen if you make 35-40% of your 3pts?
This is how every post is. “When I was losing, it was the game screwing me, but when I won, that was all my skill and me beating 2ks algorithm.”
Its obvious your a newb when it comes to this game. Your narrative you speak of has nothing to do with the thread itself. You are assuming a logical fallacy based on what? Here we go again with a major fool speaking his mind and not reading to understand the thread in stead. Go cry about what others are “in your book” crying about.
Thought all of 2k20 and 21 I haven’t felt like I could go into a game knowing I’m the better player and winning based off of skill the amount of whites my opponent makes is just ridiculous
This year it was even worse than last
while the RNG in gameplay makes the game barely unplayable the rewards are also based on RNG which sucks just look at any thread about ferry or terry d some people played upwards of 500 and even 1000 games for either cards and then some played under 50 games and got both I’m really starting to hate the way this game is going hopefully 2k22 is going to be way different but I’m sure it won’t be
Not sure if you have played next gen but so many whites go in in mtu and tto I can’t count on one hand how many time I’ve made a white over the past 5 games and I could easily count past 25 times my opponent has made a white contesting isn’t the problem it’s easy to do but when you’re rotating and jump blinders just cancels the contest and even then most 35%+ whites will still drop u less you have sharp take you will then only green smothered shots
The gameplay is complete shit shot contest have nothing to do with RNG shooting mechanics being one sided
Plus there is barely a skill gap on next gen I could give my grandma the controller and she would be able to posterise someone 6 possessions in a row
Some people waste their time trying to convince me that the game is fair. I’ve had an account for a very long time, longer then most anyone here. I’ve played way, way too much to not know what I’m talking about. When someone tells me there is no such foolery in this game, I know they are a newb.
The game has never changed much to me and its only gotten worse every year. Instead of making a new game, its the same game with more added bullshit programming.
I will take good timed wide open shots and miss maybe 3 out of 4 shots to start a game. Then the other guy will make a few whites and they will be contested 30-40 percent. My opponent will have great control over their movement and I will have a hard time just turning around. My guys will be lazy and passes will be made way late. My guys will make open passes and no one will be able to catch the ball with out an animation to slow me down. I will try like mad to get open and every time I do something happens to favor my opp and screw me.
The entire time ill be yelling at the game, "2k!, this guy sucks! come on!
I’ll have to roll my eyes at barely being able to score on open attempts or the animations near the rim to give my opp the best chances at blocking or stealing the ball from me.
Mind you I’m using analog for dunks and doing everything I can to get easy baskets. IT wont matter, Ill be fighting like hell just to stay in the game and the CPU will undoubtedly help my opp stay in the game.
I have a lot of great games where its equal and it can go down to the wire.
Where I feel good about losing to someone that is showing great skill and IQ.
I have noticed when I play much better teams, that the game will be in my favor.
I notice these things more now then ever:
When my opponent is missing easy shots while I’m making contested shots.
Also when they are getting bad animations or having non forced turnovers.
Most of the time, my opponent quits when the game isn’t titled in their favor.
I tend to be stupid enough to continue playing until the game rips out my heart.
I think we can all agree that this game can be very scripted at times so I feel you man.
Sadly it’s the same in other sports game too, FIFA is probably even worse but what can we do…we still play it. But tbh sometimes the momentum is sometimes in your favour, sometimes it’s against you…but when that happens it’s still very annoying and frustrating to play yeah
