Game Sliders

NBA Live 18: Game Play Sliders – Oct 2017 – Updated 10/06

Image104

I’ve been experimenting for the last few weeks, turning up all sliders to 100, and then all the zero and tuning them, these current ones are the ones that I tuned from 100-0, and I think they work out pretty fine in terms of overall game play balance vs the CPU and flow of the game. Don’t be skeptical about having the shooting higher than 50, shot contests and shot blocking ensure that its balanced, in games that I’ve played. You can always adjust.

*UPDATED: 10/06 after the patch.

I’ve noticed that some of the sliders affect CPU tendencies, so I tried to make adjustments so that they run the offense their more balanced. When they attack the rim they pass out more after collapsing the defense. I’ve noticed a lot more passing plays happening by the CPU with these. The shooting percentages might be a bit high, but I think overall flow is better. I’ll still be testing on reducing percentages, but the games have been fun, and that’s all I care about at the moment. Check below for the Cavs vs Celtics game.

*My reason for putting reach-in fouls to zero is because it causes a handicap on defense, they don’t want you to reach in the game, and when you do, they punish you for trying to steal the ball, even when the ball is right in front of you for the taking. I believe it needs to be fixed, when you turn it down to zero, you can crowd the defender, just like how you can in Live Run. If you feel it’s wrong, turn down the steal sliders below 50, if you reach, you can still get caught out of position. Best way to play defense use the right stick while you move and follow the arrow (at your feet) to slow down the offensive player.

Here’s the shot chart from the game played between the Pacers and Hawks: CPU is the Hawks, they shot 41% with these sliders. The dev team, you can tell, is trying to fix the CPU heading for the paint glitch, there has been a lot of mid-range jumpers being taken now by the CPU.
