UPDATE: The patch notes have been released.

  • Addressed an issue where purchased, created shoes in the MyPLAYER Store would revert to the unpurchased state upon leaving the menu.
  • Upon signing an endorsement deal with a shoe company in MyCAREER, shoes from that brand will once again be wearable by your MyPLAYER.
  • (XB1) Online games will no longer disconnect during gameplay when one or more users had minimized the title and returned while sitting on the Team Select screen prior to playing.
  • Made a number of improvements to the player progression/regression systems that drive player ratings in MyGM/MyLEAGUE/MyCAREER.
  • Fixed a rare case where the user team would trade for the upcoming pick mid-draft (MyGM/MyLEAGUE), but the team that traded away the pick would retain the rights to the player.
  • Fixed an issue where some users were unable to access specific Online Leagues.
  • Removed “auto-hesitation” dribble animations that played when driving near defenders. Smoothed out the sprint to jog transition in the back court.

  • Corrected an issue in MyTEAM where improved player badges were not appearing in the correct color when viewing a head-to-head game. The correct badge level with appropriate gameplay adjustments are now being made.
  • The ‘Bruiser’ and ‘Hardened’ badges will now unlock properly in MyCAREER when the appropriate conditions are met.
  • Fixed a rare case where some users would occasionally see the title hang during the series of legal screens at the start of the game.

In addition to the roster update, 2K Sports released their latest post launch patch on March 13th. The patch mainly addressed stability issues as well as fixing an issue where gamers couldn’t equip shoes that they have bought. Additionally, 2K Sports fixed a rare occurrence in which the MyPark rep would get stuck. Shooting percentage rates have also been adjusted to portray a more accurate outcome on wide open, opposed to highly contested shots. Senior Game play director Mike Wang shed some light on how and why these decisions were made.

Originally Posted by  Mike Wang :

To give some insight on the actual tuning that I made, here’s essentially what happened:I tuned the baseline [shooting] values that are shared by both human and CPU-controlled players.

The shot heuristics are pretty complex at a basic level. Pre-patch, the numbers looked something like this for a decent shooter at mid-range:
Wide open = 45%
Fully Contested = 35%
Heavily Contested = 10%

That’s why many people complained that “being open” didn’t really matter much, and they were right. Post-patch, that same shooter is now:
Wide open = 60%
Fully Contested = 20%
Heavily Contested = 10%

So over the course of the game, assuming both teams shoot an even spread of open and contested jumpers, you should’ve seen zero change to your end-of-game shot percentages when comparing pre- and post-patch. But if you trend hard one way or the other (all your shots are open or all your shots are contested), you would’ve seen a very noticeable change.

If both teams play solid defense, I can believe that a player might go 80% from the field from time to time, but it definitely shouldn’t be the norm. Also, in case you’re wondering, I didn’t touch three-point percentages at all, only layup, close and mid-range values.

I also fixed the “glitched” shots being unable to get perfect release, so that will factor in as well.

2K Sports has not released any official patch notes yet as XBOX ONE users are still awaiting their update and we don’t expect to see it until that happens. What do you guys think of the tweaks to the shot system? Comment, like and share and stay tuned to SGO for all the latest news in the gaming world.
