So the demo is a mixed bag. You can build 6 characters and play them in 1 game each before the demo locks you out. I went with a slashing playmaker 6'2 PG, my usual. Kept him at base rating of 60. Horrendous. It put me as SG. Missed every layup, shot, couldn't stay with my man on D, slow but wrist of all, poor fatigue. By the 4th quarter, i just left the controller down and went on my phone as i couldn't v do a damn thing.
Game finished, that slot locked out, ok onto my next build, exact same but starting rating is now 85. Still had me at SG but completely different game. Making tough layups, even got a monster dunk, fast, getting steals, driving past people with ease, much much much more enjoyable. Haven't tried any more builds yet.
It just makes me realise if you're buying this, the early getting to 85 will not be an enjoyable one. Now, the Devs said this is much quicker to 99 than last year and expects the best players to hit it within a few days of release. That sounds dodgy to me. Hard to tell if there's truth to it or if they expect you buy VC to get to 85 straight away. Chris Smoove said you need between 170 and 190k vc to hit 85.
As much as the red flags are showing, it was a lot of fun playing as an 85 so the temptation is there. Smyths are selling it for 55 which is also tempting...
