Signature Skills were introduced in NBA 2K13 providing more differentiation between players with unique definition of abilities. 31 Signature Skills were featured though the “Acrobat” skill was later removed in a roster update to accommodate an online tournament after a flaw was discovered allowing for Euro Step three pointers to be exploited.
