Both. Fantasy is fun, but I find myself getting the same group of role players to fit around whatever star I get. Plus I edit and update rosters to fit what I think the team actually is (and the CPU cheats btw. No matter how ****ty you make players like troy hudson the twolves always win at least 55).itsPizzarific said:do you guys fantasy draft?
@ garbad - i started at 03. im nubbor. i actually like the gameplay of 04 better than 05. and i hate waiting for trades in season mode. trade now damit.
what he said. :wink2:Garbad_the_Weak said:-_-
I like the rule changes the NBA made this season to allow more slashing. IMO it has helped a lot. Scoring is up, shooting % is up, assists are up, and tempo is up as gaurds have more advantage than they have.
And the passing. In NBA live its pretty much impossible to slash to the basket and hit a cutter moving in. When you try, the cutter will either flop or get blocked. You can hit open perimiter shooters, but then its like 30% tops.
Yeah, that sucks, but it prevents you from trying like 24234234234234 trades until you get one favorable one. The AI is anal about trading too.itsPizzarific said:and i hate waiting for trades in season mode. trade now damit.
trading up bad players was a lot easier in 04.Garbad_the_Weak said:Yeah, that sucks, but it prevents you from trying like 24234234234234 trades until you get one favorable one. The AI is anal about trading too.
And also, the computer is stupid about the value of stars vs role players. Just offer 3 really sucky bench warmers (like 50-52) for a decent player (57-60). Then resign some scrubs, there is an endless supply. Once you get 3 guys about 57-60, sell them for a guy who is about 70 or so, and so on up. Oh, and dump your unfavorable contracts on the bobcats. Or pick up guys like Glenn Robinson who suck and have expiring contracts.
You can easily build your dream team in one season. I've played seasons where I had like 10 of the top 12 players in the league on my team.
P.S. Whats the most points you have ever gotten with one player and how many minute quarters?
haha, nice.itsPizzarific said:i remember was beating started mode a LONG time ago in 04 115-25 on 5 min quarters. =p thats when i moved up a difficulty level lol
