Ratings and Reviews
Great game but multiple problems
EA has built a great game but they have been slacking on the updates. I have some ideas that I think will really help the game. First, the game has fallen way behind on the rosters, most players have either been either A. Traded B. Retired or C. Just didn't get signed, and since the last roster update a ton of rookies have entered the league. This will greatly improve the game. Another idea that i think will help the game is the choice of jerseys. Having to play a game with the same uniforms every time gets a little irritating after a while. And I’m not talking about just having a choice of just home and away but having a wide selection of uniforms. I think that will greatly improve the game. Lastly, the legends, you add legends like, Larry Bird, Manute Bol, James Worthy Etc. They were all very well known. What about the players like Micheal Jordan, Allen Iverson or Magic Johnson Etc. they were great players just like the very few legends that are in the game. That will help the help the games rating skyrocket. I really hope you will greatly consider adding my ideas to the game. Thank you for your time.
Deleted! Don't Buy!
DO NOT BUY UNTIL EA STARTS RESPECTING ITS CUSTOMERS 1st
I love how every time you "update" the game, it's ALWAYS worse than before! Congratulations on NEVER listening to the people that actually spend their money expecting a playable game. And who does EA have doing Player Ratings? A chimp? It's funny that the ratings are actually WORSE than before. How is it that Curry is ranked 8 for 3 point shooting? And 7 or 8 for dribbling? Are you kidding me? Yet there are tons of guys that have 9's and 10's in each of those categories that aren't even starters in the NBA lol. How is Klay Thompson not even on the Warriors squad, but Jason Richardson is? Yippee. I totally want to play as an average player instead of a champ. I can go on and on, but I'll just leave it with that 1 example. Right now, this unplayable. LISTEN TO THE FANS EA!!! Worst company there is when it comes to listening to customer complaints. It's like they go out of their way NOT to create the game everyone wants.
Do not listen to 5 star reviews! Only reasons I can think of that someone would rate it higher than 1 or 2 stars is either A)Works for EA, or 2)Have never seen a real NBA game in their life, and have no idea what player stats should be. Again... Curry, best 3pt shooter of all time who can hit from half court with ease, is rated as an 8!!! MVP and he doesn't have a meaningful stat above 8. Unbelievable
Does EA Sports even look at these reviews?
My number one complaint with this game is that they seem to only update the rosters about once every three years. They even say "updated rosters!" on the app when you find it in the App Store, yet Steve Nash is still on the Lakers roster. Plus they have players numbers wrong. LeBron wears number 6 with the Cavs? Come on, are you even trying? I think the last time they updated rosters was 2014.
I just got an update for this app today so I was really excited that they might be updating the rosters since the update was around 350mb. But nope, it was a huge update that took forever to download and it didn't change a thing. So frustrating.
Also lets talk about player ratings. LeBron and Kyrie are both rated as 9 for 3 pointers, but Steph Curry is an 8 for 3 pointers? How do you determine player ratings? Do you draw numbers out of a hat?
I gave this app 2 stars but only because it's fun to play. Considering the cost of $5, I would not recommend this game to others only because EA Sports does nothing to maintain rosters or ratings and they clearly ignore user feedback.
