    F the rookies, this game will be the best sports game ever if it'd be released with the old demo-build(notice I played since SNES and don't say GOTY usually). The new additions, revamping My Player, the controls and physics make up for all the negative ish. Can't wait for October, too bad the release is exactly when University starts. :(

    I'm sure someone will post the rookies on 2kshare, or maybe 2k11 will have random players that look and play exactly like the rookies, but have different names (I think NBA Live did that one year w/ Jordan, where the player's name was #23 or something like that).

    Also, a friend of mine brought up a good point. This wasn't a particulary legendary draft class. If you're a Cavs fan or a Twolves fan, you might be disappointed, but other than that I don't see the rookies making any big impact on the gameplay.

    So how would MyPlayer draft work if there's no rookies? Would they just be generic players?

    Jesus Christ... Some people really haven't used 2Kshare to its fullest... It is probably the best feature in the whole damn game...

    Take out our pitchforks. 2k for some reason lowered Kmart's rating from an 81(2k11) to a 79. Just one point higher than Roy and 4 behind Ellis... Don't get this especially when they actually featured him now on their trailers and have him as one of the star players on the menu background. He was the best rated player on 2k11 so it's gonna suck cause they probably did the same to Lowry's and Scola's ratings too. And they really knocked Twill's rating down some from a 76(2k11) to 72 so he probably won't be nearly as good as last year when you could stick him on anyone and power dunk over players. Hell they probably lowered everyone's ratings on our team including Patterson but I know they kept most of the star players' ratings the same...:rolleyes:

    That is annoying, but I need to take a closer look. If they have his shooting and foul drawing pumped up, with other things knocked down, I am ok with that.

    Like I said, expected a bump for our guys as there are tons of new attributes you have to take into account for the OVR. We sadly have lots of one-dimensional guys that only score without being great at athleticsm, passing, defense, rebounding,...

    2kshare is flawed for realistic rosters, I downloaded the recent roster on 2k11 with rookies, rated 5, downloaded by many, and it was just unrealistic the way they rated most of the rookies...so it is definitely far off from what you would get with 2k

    Just made a semi Dream Shake with Chandler in the demo. The post-controls are so incredibly complex...witnessing new stuff every time I play, and that's just with Dirk and Chandler. Can't wait to get the game and create a Center to master all these moves.

    Does anyone know if myplayer will be forced to run actual plays again? That update ruined 2k11 for me.

    You can turn playcalling off this year, but they say it's way better and intelligent in 2k12 if you have it turned on.

    the real 2k insider roster or something like that? It was downloaded by many and rated the highest. And in it with all the rookies you have all the rookies rated in the 70s and 5 stars, its natural to overrate tehm base on verbal hype so on, 2k official doesn't do taht

    2k definitely threw the Rockets under the bus this season. Lowry took a major hit from 2k11 and is now a 76 from 81 and Scola a 77 from 81 before as well. Lowry is now just one point ahead of Brooks and players like Conley, Billups, Kidd etc all are rated higher...

    If you like using the Rockets online and want them to fix this like in last years game, post your complaints on the 2k12 forum and to @Ronnie2k and let them know what's real.
