The game play improved, but there is no goals. Last year we had at least the masters that made us to be entertained for several months doing a slow grind. We had 5 lineups to improve, now with one, it was fine to fill the roster to 85, but the mysterious phenomenon of coin sellers becoming from one day to another like millionaires broke the market for normal players. I can't even think in much changes in my lineup since I trained the players I have, some of them were not even sellable at first, and now the market is totally nuts.
Last year if you were fed up of one lineup, you could change to another and play, buy and sell most of the players, so you would eventually do some changes for fun or tweaking your team according to your taste. I have Carmelo as my PF, and I would like to change, it's almost impossible for now.
And it's not ok starting a TOTW and then abandon it, last 2 weeks there was none. Last season we had it for all season. Even if I think that this year is horrible implementation at least they should bring the players. I don't care if there was a holiday or not in US, Google doesn't stop working or any other company, and this burglars didn't stop draining money from customers.... ups, players with ridiculous packs. They were too lazy to maintain the game.
The few stuff they improved, which was great until now is not compensating the continuous lack of information (that Price guy is too busy, they should get someone else to do NBAM community work, simple), so many bugs (Dirk Crashing is just one of them), lack of focus, drive or even detail, so many cards that are totally wrong.
They will eventually fix everything... probably in season 3... we're already in December and the game still looks in Beta!
