After receiving the patch 1.12 on Apr. 7, NBA 2K17 got another shooting update to address the shooter’s situation after the feedback from the community was not positive.

The changes are pretty straightforward: if your player is a shooter, he’ll be better. If he’s not, then shooting should be harder. According to the Gameplay Director for NBA 2K Mark Wang, players should get a bigger boost the higher their ratings are.

The changes happened after Wang organized a few surveys for NBA 2K17 fans on Twitter about expected percentages of shooters in different situations. It seems that the new mechanism has been positively greeted by the community and thus most likely the devs have made a good step forwards also in NBA 2K18 coding.

NBA 2K17 is available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
