In part one of my Fixing PNO series we took a look at some of the issues (many of them legacy) plaguing 2K's Play Now Online mode. Things like steal spam (and how it ruins play-calling) beat defenders, Paint Passing, and how unnecessary mechanics like User Bonuses have hurt the foundation of NBA 2K were the focus. As always, I addressed solutions and ways to resolve these elements.
In part two I take a look at Player Collisions, Contesting, Shooter Fouls and everyone's favormanyite (sarcasm) Block Ratings and Timing. Hopefully many of these issues can be addressed in time for 2K19, many are deal-breakers and a commitment from the dev team to resolve a handful of legacy issues every cycle would regain some of the goodwill hardcore players lost as a result of the many broken aspects of NBA 2K18.
