Stick when grab and take or post fade. Button from anywhere in close. Is not it harder to pick your layup if you use button? I've always fought with NBA 2K MT Coins these controls and used stick for layups. I'd LOVE to be shooting 40% but I am lucky if I could hit 20%. I just play offline. I know we have scrub players right now, and I am a below average player but seriously even layups which are in the middle of the meter are not going in. I don't even dare to try a jump shot. The AI seems to be absurd levels as well. I understand they want to reward skill in 2k21 however this kind of stuff is going to truly put off casual players and those new the 2K franchise and also brand new to basketball matches.
I have been enjoying since 2K13 but I have never been that good of a player. I'd say I'm average, but I know I shouldn't be missing all these 3s. My starter players have never played this bad in 2k16,17,18,19 and 20. The only other 2K I played 2K20 was 2K13 and which was on PC. But this is a whole new level using a completely different mechanic. I did ok at the demonstration and in the quickgames with the new shooting meter but can't hit the side of a barn here.
Simply played the demo, however, the stick was a great deal more reliable than button for me. I have been a button man also. I've got a 75 3 pointer, I believe I greened one shooter in like 5 nba games. . . Genuinely shooting 2/16 in a offline triple hazard game on just layups and 1 open jumpshot that airballed on marginally early. Spent $100 for this bullshit lmao. Man the shooting is additional nice right now but that I would advise shot timing like appearance for the que on the animation.
Yep I am having difficulty with it as well. Launched a game on My group heading 0/12 overlooking open 3s and midrange shots all around the place. I am all for them toning down shots being almost automatic but the machine looks a little bit too unforgiving up to now. Hopefully will start to get better after a few more games of getting used to it. The game just came out and Cheap NBA 2K Coins we have ta new meter using slightly different timing.
