NBA Live 17 Wishlist Thread Open; Submit Your Feedback!

Dwyane Wade with the basketball in NBA Live 16

Wishlist season is tipping off, and it’s time to start putting together our feedback for the NBA Live Development Team. As such, I’ve created our official NBA Live 17 Wishlist thread, which you can find here in the NLSC Forum. That’s the place to post suggestions as to what you want to see improve in NBA Live 17, as well as features that you want to see added to the game. Lists of bugs that ultimately weren’t resolved in the NBA Live 16 title updates are also most welcome.

While no one should feel they have to sugar-coat, suck up, or otherwise be less than honest in their feedback, we also ask that everyone remains civil and constructive. Being abusive, needlessly nasty or snarky, or otherwise childish isn’t helpful, and those sorts of posts aren’t welcome in the NBA Live 17 Wishlist thread. If you want to vent about the game, the NBA Live series, or whatever, please find or create another thread. We want to keep the Wishlist threads constructive and on-topic.

Apart from that, be sure to give details where necessary. Saying things like “make the gameplay better” or “better Dynasty Mode” isn’t useful, as it doesn’t tell the developers how gameplay needs to get better, or what you want to see in Dynasty Mode. The same goes for any other aspect of the game that you want to provide feedback on.

In case you missed the link above, you can find the NBA Live 17 Wishlist here in the Forum. I’ve also included a few notes in the first post about the best way to provide feedback. As mentioned, we’ll most likely compile a “Top Wishes” list once the Wishlist really gets rolling, and we have an idea of the most desired improvements and additions. That’s about it, so start posting your feedback ASAP! If you need some inspiration, I’d recommend checking out this excellent article by cdj over on The Gaming Tailgate.

Open up nba live 16 wish list.

Copy and paste

I think I may have to take the day off work to write it all down in all seriousness

Make players able to get crossed by good ballhandlers that have good string of moves crafted together, and depending on how complex the crossover combo is you can make them either defensively slide the wrong way, freeze them to where they don’t know what to do, cross them so bad they literally slip/fall, and make players able to lose balance and make it convinceingly hard for them to regain their posure or balance again instead of letting people get crossed then recover so fast that’s not always real. Make rebounding mechanics more realistic and convincing there’s like some ease to it when you get rebounds make it where whoever anticipate or time rebounds get it but I also feel you should make a rebound strip control not all the time big men give up rebounds that easy. It might be fun to make a taunting control towards opposing the bench or crowd or coach that element to me would like break the fourth wall that NBA live and 2k have yet to break. I’m all for live yal the best yal are the innovators.

Nba live 17 needs better rebounding. A fluid post scoring system and better animations. More animations like signature dribbling and dunk animations. Player models need to look better and not stick figures because in nba live 16 most players looked the same. Rising star needs a story line or some kind of cut screens or mocap. Dynasty mode needs to be revamped like how it was in nba live 10. EA needs to implement the DNA back into the game so it’ll run more fluid. Overall just make nba live 17 more of a simulated game

All star weekend should be brought back with all the events including the skills challenge. Nba live has a real nba feel to it if they add the all star it will feel even more realistic then 16

Better dunk animation and physics
Better stealing physics
Better rebound

NBA Live needs non face scan people & throwback player to look more realistic and the defense to not have that clunky stop feeling and the post zoom in and be able to use throwback players in dynasty mode and gear and shoe change on the players and be able to use your Live player in dynasty and be first free player in my player mode

All I won’t is for nba live 17 to be for last gen think about it sales would boost and you don’t even have to change anything from live 16

NBA live 17 wishlist

NBA Live 17 need more body contact collisions that are more realistic whether it be contact on the dribble or dunking the movement on offense and defense needs to be more life like acceleration and speeds should have a heavy role in gameplay as well as size for example Russell Westbrook on the fast break and Zachary Randolph trailing him but if Zach get in his way he gets physical and slow Rilussell up a bit or vice versa Zach shouldn’t be able to catch Russell if no contact is made to deaccelerate Russell. They need more dribbling package individuality better blocking animations sliding on defense needs to be “smooth and natural” the crowd need to get hype or boo a rival team it should be a loud atmosphere you should be able to run into refs coaches or sub in table there should be physicallity between rivals teams or players that don’t like each other verbal confrontations and sometimes physical the team should be celebrating with each other on the court/hyping each other up when time out is called. Need to be able to strip the ball better on gathers for a lay up or dunk you should be able to “pin” an attempted lay up to the backboard if and only when time right stop making it easy for the guard to just rush in the paint and dunk all the time or make acrobatic lay ups make it difficult like time when to release the layup button on contact for and ones or no calls bring back bank shot controls make a reverse dunk or layup control make the gather takeoff real for the respective player like Russell dunking from the third line in the paint and Kilyrie Irving dunking in closer cause he’s not as fast or explosive make the bigger players move slow and heavy realistically as possible according to weight make the post controls a little more advance and add variety give specifics moves to those bigs depending on their playing style give everyone their real shot animations make players contest or argue with players on plays when time outs or dead balls occur and depending on the personality of the player let the ref tech them up give all players their real personality like Russell getting hype going crazy after a and one but kawhi slap five to team mate and just go to shoot the free throw

I have a shit load of ideas and feel like the NBA players and analyst should give NBA live cast and crew more input on gameplay and feel of the game in order for it to be more real as possible and make a control for slip passes on pick and rolls

Terry Hood
Guest

Make more controls for the different passes such as bounce pass slip pass lob pass wrap around pass(where you step around your defender when closely guarded with your non pivot foot to pass the ball without steals) etc. make a control to keep guard up for dribble (to protect dribble) make hair free flowing with physics, all around better physics stop letting players be able to either go through each other or reach through hands to take the ball that’s not realistic I can’t literally make ma body or hand go through someone else’s make flagrant fouls and techs relevant make ref time outs for injuries or wet spots on the floor for fallen players every now and then make sneakers come undone (like Isaiah Thomas obviously he wear shoes too big that fall off in the end result alot) make a control for push offs on the drive that’s heavily done in the NBA today specially by Lebron he doesn’t get a lot of offensive fouls for that but let the actual players that get away with get away with it, make some players more physical than others like Lebron in the playoffs where he tangles up with players or pulls jerseys, actually make a control where you can tangle up or tug jerseys at appropriate times for instance to get open for a shot or get an advantage over your match up to get a rebound, make injuries where a player accidentally collide with another players shoe or leg resulting in ankle injuries or acl tears etc., let the gamer decide to play a player with a medium to light injury like EA do for MADDEN,

Nba live 17 need to have the same player creation like 2k and be able to upgrade attributes if some people want to do that improve the speed for fast breaks better oop animation better rebounding and more dribble pull ups and dribbling and shot animations make the my career like how 2k made there’s with a story and also give all players there jump shots do have everyone have the same shot and add more shots and more animations that we can put on players add a lot of accessories like shoes and sleeves stuff like that so we can add to players for the dynasty and for the dynasty add the realistic player contracts and improve the dynasty layout use the live 10 dynasty stuff but improve from that

David

You can add some of the stuff 2k has on the mygm and my league have on there like the trading format and draft classes

Terrance

Please bring back FIBA. That was awesome in Live 10. Also in dynasty mode make the contracts real. All the players were asking for 5 million for one year???? Defense needs to be revamped its very hard to stay in front of your man. Help side defense needs to improve as well. Being able to edit players and rosters would be nice as well.

Can live improve their defense because when your man gets to the rim to attempt a dunk u can’t stop him.like there is no chance of blocking it.

I’ve been a fan of NBA live sense 09 I no for a fact that live can be better than 2K I think live need to make the characters or players more fuller like how 2K player are but with that live touch I think that will make the game better in a whole new way or use what was put into madden and use it in a way that can make live better
