    'Who is going to pay the developer's?' Are you for real? 50 million downloads just for android. And when 2k18 my team goes live there will be at least 10m uninstalls

    What does 50 million downloads represent? How many of the 50 million will actually pay to play? What do you think the annual revenue of NBALM and why? Throwing random numbers out there that doesn't directly correlate to actual financial impact, good job
    The major reason that EA is not staffing more engineers to fix all the existing bugs/problems, is mainly due to the game not generating enough revenue.

    EA clearly makes less on this product than others.
    The truth is, perhaps the Console revenue for Madden and FIFA afford EA the ability to spend more on manpower and resources for the mobile versions of those two games.
    NBA Live for console? Pheesh....peanuts.

    I'll download it today on my iPad at work and see how it goes. 

    Judging by the videos thus far, it looks like it has great potential. 

    2K knows how to make great console games. 

    It was only a matter of time before they jumped into the microtransaction world of mobile gaming. 

     

    EA will either step their game up or be crushed like they were in console.

    Quote from nyKnickerbockers >>

    I have a feeling the ovr is preset and they make stats for the players however they feel like.

    That is definitely not an outlandish claim to make.
    At times, I've thought this as well.

    It's definitely part of the equation.

    Perhaps sometimes EA screws with the formula and forces stats up and down to get a certain OVR, or maybe they just BS it.

    The truth is, we don't know, can't know, and probably will never know.

     

    That's the benefit they have with their system.

    While I can't say for sure if this is the case, this is what I've seen from other EA sports games:

     

    EA utilizes percentages to multiply each stat, then adds them up to obtain a raw decimal number.

    They then round that number up to 2 whole digits. 

     

    The percentages typically depend on the position of the player. (Perhaps less variance in a basketball game than Madden). 

     

    For example:

     

    Player X has the following stats:

    Shooting - 80

    Dribbling - 80

    3PT - 90

    Defense - 80

     

    Player X is a PG, so EA has these percentages assigned to him per stat:

    Shooting - .36

    Dribbling - .34

    3PT - .24

    Defense - .06

     

    They would then multiply the percentages with their stats:

    Shooting - (80 x .36) = 28.8

    Dribbling - (80 x .34) = 27.2

    3PT - (90 x .24) = 21.6

    Defense - (80 x .06) =  4.8

     

    Add these values up to get the raw OVR:

    28.8 + 27.2 + 21.6 + 4.8 = 82.40

     

    Round this down to get the OVR of the player:

    82

     

    This is the formula they've used for other games, as I mentioned, so it might apply here as well.

    The hidden stats is something that might exist, where they include them in the calculations as well.

    it's way too time-consuming and the cards end up auctionable anyway. 

    +1. What I've been saying since it started. It's way too time consuming. The format in MM and FM seems way faster than here. Hence, why I say EA need to look at making an offensive only challenge like those other games, and let the AI handle defense.

  • posted a message on EA screwed up the Playoff card OVR tier?

     

    Quote from deivisst >>

    they probably did the cards based on the seeds 2 games before the playoffs. Which is tbh reasonable, nobody cares that much about those cards anyway.

    Agreed that these are feeder cards but the point being made is in regards to lack of detail.

  • posted a message on EA screwed up the Playoff card OVR tier?

    So they've released 2 cards per team for this promo thus far, for a total of 32 cards.

    Each team's players are tiered by their ranking, or so it seemed.

     

    92s are the 1 seeds

    91s are the 2 seeds

    90s are the 3 seeds

    89s are the 4 seeds

    88s are the 5 seeds

    87s are the 6 seeds

    86s are the 7 seeds

    85s are the 8 seeds

     

    However, for the Western Conference, we have the following OVR based rankings:

    1. Rockets

    2. Warriors

    3. Trailblazers

    4. Jazz

    5. Pelicans

    6. Spurs

    7. Thunder

    8. Timberwolves

     

    The Thunder got pushed from 4th to 7th, and the Jazz, Pelicans and Spurs got pushed up a spot.

     

    It would be nice if the devs payed attention to details.
