NBA Live 19 Patch 1.25[edit]

Release Dates[edit]

  • PlayStation 4: June 3rd, 2019
  • Xbox One: June 3rd, 2019

Patch Notes[edit]

Pro-Am Updates

Venue + Uniform updates: Quai 54

Bug Fix

Memory corruption fix for players with 5 CAPs.

Gameplay Tuning

Based off community feedback:

  • Upped defensive impact to shots
    • Good defensive positioning will be rewarded by affecting jump shots more.
  • Introducing a ball hog penalty
    • If a user “hogs” the ball for an excessive period, shots will be penalized. A major shot penalty will kick in if the user continues to ball hog.
    • This is only for user player jump shots in Live Run.
  • Bigger players will play contact shots against smaller players less often.
    • This will result in more clean looks and makes for bigger players (when going up against smaller players)
  • More impact for lower-rated players on contact layups.
    • This results in lower-rated players missing more layups with contact
  • Increased chances to make cleaner layups and shots around the rim
    • Fewer clean layups missed from light contests
  • Improved ball handling vs. collisions
    • Higher-rated ball handlers will only pick up the ball from too many collisions or being super low on short-term stamina.

Further notes on roster updates can be found here.
