    Quote from revride >>

    Here's what it looks like to me. The overriding factor is the random difficulty setting. A better ovr may have a higher chance at getting a favorable difficulty level for that quarter. I see it as four parts to the different difficulty settings that affect and contribute to the final score:

     

    1. Your manual quarter - how your players will play and how the AI players will play

    2. Your opponent's quarter - how your opponent's players will play and how your AI players will play

     

    If you're not jumping for rebounds, missing perfect releases and can't steal anything, that's because it has been pre-determined when you started the quarter. No amount of defence you throw at it will be able to stop the AI's 100% field goal percentage, if you're unlucky enough. There is no way to beat the OP AI, because your players can't move even when you are mashing those controls. There is no skill involved in playing this game, just luck.

     Though I do agree there are quarters like that.. I think that's more rare than name.. 
    But I disagree abt the skill part. There is a ton of skill involved..most importantly in getting steals.. the single most important thing in this game.. that requires good joystick control (the skill part) and obviously a pg with a high steal rating/tall pg.. and lot of people of rush their shots.. I can easily tell when I'm taking dumb shots and when I'm taking sensible shots.. just like real life basketball.. though I do wish open 20% releases shd go in especially when contested AI 3s go in

    @lage 

    With regard to the problems u are facing.. u can't do anything.. those are problems I guess which everyone face more or less.. plus the greater the ovr difference the more far ur sg will be from the AI sg.. 

    One way to sort of stop it is move up as close to the pg as possible.. this sort of makes it tougher for him to pass.. the extreme eg of this when the pg drives to the baseline and ur SG tends to sag off even more then pass and open shot.. in that case if u have positioned ur pg in between the pg and sg u might be able to contest

    The only other option is to take a tall sg.. eg 94 giannis .. the chances of getting the block then increase

    Awesome. I suggest superstar metta and start him over worthy. I have him maxed to 99 cause he's one of my fav players and he's an outright monster

     Do u use metta for 3 pointers..? If so how much lineup boost do u have.. 
    Metta and worthy are the only cheap run and gun sf with high ovr.. so was wondering 
     
     I use metta for open threes consistently. He's around 65-70% on good look good timing threes which gets the job done around , well, 70% of the time. His midrange is brilliant and his strength rebounding and defense and dunking is perfect, just like the metta cards from last season. I might do a video review on him tomorrow
     
     Cool sounds good.. still hoping to snatch up 92 grant.. but if not metta it is

     They must have platinum players in their bench.. bcz 96 Bens and AIs offer advantages to their lineups.. plus they might be shooting more with their pfs so depend on AI for 3s

    Quote from JukeNukem1432 >>

    To be honest they both play the same. I've been using Monroe for a long time but tried out Allen for about 4 days before selling him and it felt like I was playing with the same cards so I sold Allen for profit and kept Monroe. A part of me thinks they just used the same card for both players and just changed the model and couple stats. They were that similar.

     Aren't they talking abt nba lineup.. legend Jamal vs 97 ray...?
    To the OP, nowhere close to master harden?.. lot of sg alternatives RT now.. 94 beal/harden/ donovan 
    I had legend Jamal once upon a time.. was just too inconsistent for me

  • posted a message on Dilemma for Playoff masters

    Was in a similar dilemma a few days back.. so I bought a few of the 300000 packs( as like u said didnt want to end up with tp)  to make sure I would finish a master (finished duncan today) .. I think that would still work for u.. 

    No way of knowing whether they will extend.. but didnt want to risk it..

    I'm at a 95 .. (after the promo 94s..).. I sold Duncan and got UL gasol for 1 mill.. I'm keeping the coin for now bcz there will be better cards in a week or so for the second round of playoffs.. I also sold the 2 of the 94s and got a platinum for my classic

    If ur a good player, a 93 team shd get u into the top 1000 IF u really grind..

  • posted a message on Best use of "extra" guys

    Depends on how much coin u have .. if u have a lot use then for training players IF u don't think u will change them in the future (master harden Royal LeBron etc)

    If u don't have coin, sell them.. 

    Third option is to just keep them and use them in promos.. I keep most of the gold's and base elites I have for this purpose as the coin I get from selling them on my main account won't help .. but in my alt account I sell them cos I need coin

    Quote from basketeliga >>

    Sorry but I do not believe you can get 97+ without spending money......People who do not spend money at this time with all luck when open a great card and strategy plus not sleeping since the game was released the best is ovr 94 with one line stronger than the others.

     

    But hey, if I were EA, I would also rewarding people who spent lotsa money because this is the way how business work. For people who grind hard like me, look at the bright side, we get a free addictive game. Lol!

     It is possible to get a 97+ without money IF people sniped and built a fortune pre bots( first 3 months if the season)..

    94 Ben is good man..if he's not working for u put him in the bench and try another pg ..for eg Lillard ..ovr is important .. plus the money it will take u to buy 87 Ben and Max him out u can buy and try at least 2 pgs..
