It’s late in the season to be getting patches but another has just landed for NBA 2K17. As the 10th patch of substance for the game this one is primarily focused on improving gameplay. 2K17 has suffered from some gameplay issues including serious problems with defensive AI that were never really addressed through the post-release support until now. Other areas worked on relate to dribble moves, problematic animations, and off-ball contact.

♦Improvements to double team logic for more appropriate rotations and to prevent help defenders from leaving their assignments.
♦Enhanced several dribble size-up combos to make more responsive chaining moves together.
♦Improved off-ball collision logic to prevent excessive bumping for smoother offensive flow.
♦Removed dribbler collision reactions that slowed down ball handler with contact from behind.
♦Offensive AI enhancements for better decision making when countering double teams.
♦Fixed issue allowing travels if rapidly chaining together certain rhythm dribble animations.
♦Fixed issue preventing some players from signing 10-day contract in MyGM/MyLeague.

    How big is the download? on XBOX ONE AND PS4 Pasta?

    • It’s the same 7+ gigs on PS4 as the past ones have been. I think it’s under 3 gigs on XB1.

        wow thanks.

        RBI baseball 17 just added online play with a 4 gig patch pasta. Maybe something to add to the sunday post I don’t know.

    Would it kill them to put in an actual SCREEN on dribble handoffs? Too much of a staple in today’s game not to get this right.

    I swear it feel like 2k has had 10 patches this year this game was broken the whole year lets see what else they ruined now

    Pasta why does 2k even bother? People still are gonna keep complaning on twitter no matter how many patches 2k does. I wish people would stop complaining and stop playing the game if they don’t like it. other guys enjoy the game that it was at launch people complained about the shooting during the launch version of the game 2k fucks with the shooting for three months Still complaints I loved the shooting at launch the mid range jimmy was golden

    So now the shooting is nerfed to hell and now people found something else to complain about so they did more patches starting the year looking at your comment section it looks like people still aren’t happy if you dont like the game stop playing it simple as that. Stop complaing to the devs on twitter because some people enjoyed the game at launch as is.

    I’m just giving up if there gonna keep patching it and patching it what’s the sense of it really people are never gonna be happy.

    Glad I skipped this years game if it has been this bad. 10 patches is beyond repair imo.
