And let me tell you why. It's too easy to score. The games are completely ridiculous.....it's not a realistic simulation at all. I can see TMac or Kobe making alot of open shots, but even the scrubs are basketball gods. It's getting quite annoying at this point. Is anyone else having this problem, or is being annoyed by this?
This is speaking from a PS2 point of view, but it is like you said if you leave it on Starter difficulty. I went something like 68-14 with the Pistons in my first frnachise year on Starter, now I've switched to All-Star for season two and am currently 29-22. So yeah, try switching up the difficulty and see if that makes a difference, unless you've already done that and are just a complete badass.
Oh yeah, that is pretty annoying how you can play 5 minute quarters and get a full game's worth of scoring, while simming CPU-only games with 10 minute quarters produces similar results. Eh. ::shrugs::

That's true of NBA Courtside, too. I'm still playing that in season mode (3 minute quarters) with create-a-players, and my center scored 68 points in a game, and my point guard averages about 11 assists and 4 steals per game. I played an exhibition game with full quarters, and I wanted to score as many points as possible with my center, just to see if it would say anything once you got past 100, breaking the scoring record. (It didn't.) I won the game somewhere around 230-120 or something, with all my points coming from the center position. The rest of the team combined for 80 assists.
I had the game on the default difficulty setting, though, which I guess is 'easy.' After I finish my season, I'll try pumping up the difficulty and seeing if that makes a difference.
Mmmm... Ashley Judd. The perfect woman. 1) Absolutely gorgeous. 2) Loves UK basketball. 3) Was on Star Trek. What more can you ask for?
This will probably not be a weekly (daily?) feature, but who knows? This should be the worst of the updates. I don't know how it's working in the States, but at least up here in Canadialand, the in-game store is slow to update.
