Here is a half assed thrown together Shved I made in 10 minutes. I'll work on him more later but he already looks better than the trash the "2K Insider" gave us IMO.

Has anyone played Modern Warfare 2 yet?

I just finished Assassin's Creed 3 and loved it. Good variety of missions.

If anyone is interested, there are a few people that have worked out equations that directly link player ratings to their actual stats.

Here: http://www.operationsports.com/forums/n ... -read.html

And Here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pWs ... asic?pli=1

I made an Excel file that directly pulls the relevant stats from Hoopsdata.com and Basketball-Reference.com an put those numbers into the equations to calculate what should be accurate ratings. The numbers aren't especially useful right now due to small sample sizes, but I'm hoping that after 20-30 games, I'll be able to make a decent roster using those ratings.

Unfortunately, even doing it this way, there are a few problems: 1) The shot inside rating is broken, as it is, the league average at the rim is something like 66%. In the game, that equates to around 108 rating, so most FG% will never be as high as they should be. 2) Way to many ratings are based on subjective evaluations. I'm going to try to take some subjectivity out of it by using DraftExpress's combine ratings for athletic ratings, etc, but it will never be perfectly accurate. 3) A lot of the shot locations, etc will be really tedious to put in off of online shot charts, so I might not do so.

The Excel file for anyone interested: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B-Qvv_ ... ENkOUpQdUE

Other people's thoughts on 2K rosters.

It makes you wonder if these guys just do it to **** us all off every year with there pathetic roster updates. I guess we are the real fools as we buy this game every year hoping for the best with this worthless 2k insider. They probably all set around every day laughing at all of us for all our complaints. At least this year they actually made a descent game, but the lack of roster updates and the lack of knowledge from the 2k insider on ratings really ruins it. What we all need to do is just boycott buying the game and maybe when sales drop off they will step up and get the 2k insider off his lazy *** or fire him and get someone who actually watches and understands the game.


It's a travesty these guys are still getting paid. Talk about stealing money.....


Its like this every year man. The so called 2k insider is as worthless as they come. This game is a great game but the roster updates really ruin the experience. I think I am going to go on 2k share and hopefully find all missing players and put them in the game. I really hate doing this cause I have better things to do than make my own dam rosters, but unfortunately it looks like I am going to have to do it. I usually fix players that are way overrated or underated but even that I hate doing as it takes time. I wish I was not so OCD and could just pick up the game and play it for what it is. I almost did not buy it this year and thought about just sticking with playing MLB The Show all winter but I needed a basketball fix and NBA2k12 was so pathetic with all the stat glitches that I just could not play it any longer. If EA ever get their heads out their asses and make a basketball game that is descent 2k could be in trouble cause 1 thing EA did do was get all players in the game when they made a game.


They updated the Blazers court but they still have two players missing

This is getting ridiculous.



2k insider needs FIRED ASAP. This guy is a fool. Why dont they hire someone who actually watches basketball games to do this job.



:lol: At least 2K is hearing from people.

So glad I got 2k13 for PC, I''ve had Shved in the game with a legit cyber face for weeks, there was even a shorter hair version after he cut his. But I hope they include an update where the announcers actually say his name instead of calling him number one.

Traded Love for Kidd-Gilchrist straight up and won a title in 2015, but Williams has a potential rating of like 90 in this game :/

PG. Rubio/DJ Augustine
SG. Shved/Roy
SF. MKG/AK47
PF. Williams/Cunningham
C. Pekovic/Biyombo

Sick.

I don't think I can afford to restart MyCareer just for Shved. Midway through the season, Klomp and the Minnesota Timberwolves are 35-6.

*YAWN!*

I don't want to watch the greatest collection of stars ever to voice act a cutscene, i want to play a sandbox game with depth and replayability. The more time they spend on their supposedly fantastic storyline means less freedom the player has to explore a supposedly sandbox game. That was the whole revolutionary concept of the original GTA - there was no story even, you just have the freedom to do what you want basically. Now they think they're filming a blockbuster movie or some **** and you spend 20% of your time seeing what kind of new cars they, 20% of the time seeing how much crime you can commit before the cops off you, 55% of the time watching cutscenes, and the remaining 5% of the time angrily returning that piece of **** to game stop for 10 cents on the dollar

GTA 4 sucked and GTA 5 looks like a worthy sequel judging by that vid

Although I really enjoyed GTA IV I think with V, they have learned their mistakes and are pumping it full of content. The Ballad of Gat Tony is probably a fair indication of their direction. That was geared a lot more towards fun than the vanilla IV.

I would say GTA IV was fun but not memorable. This new game looks like it will be pretty memorable.

11-14 Roster update!

Looks like another worthless job by the 2k insider once again. Amazing how pathetic the guy is. Seems to me they 2k could be sued for false advertising the NBA today mode is just that and means rosters should be accurate as of today. EA never seemed to have a problem updating Live when they made a game, sure their gameplay sucked but atleast they made a effort to make sure all players were in the game. I understand it being hard to keep up with accessories and not being able to give ratings updates every day, but there is really no excuse for not making more effort to putting players in the game especially when the players have been in games already.


:lol: Fans are getting more and more vocal.

You can't go wrong with Kevin Love in 2K13. Last game I hit 5/6 threes with him and the next game 5/8 including the game winner. I moved him to point guard for the final play and launched a shot over Lowry ftw. I can't say we would get away with that in a real game though.

Its a thing of beauty! Good idea on the last second lineup if its just a catch and shoot.

Sony 3D 1080 HD TV for 100 bucks! I'm getting it. That's a great deal for a 1080 tv.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sony+Comput ... 8360683860

Heads up though it on;y has HDMI ports so you will need to hook a game/pc up to it or HD cable that uses HDMI

Yeah it was just a catch and shoot. I figured the computer wouldn't react and he'd be shooting over a 6 footer.
