Maxed out 3pt specialist missing every wide open three.

#1Captain SkyhawkPosted 10/23/2010 11:12:58 PM
I made a 3pt specialist PG and I maxed out the 3pt shot and yet somehow I miss almost every single wide open 3 pointer its absolutely ridiculous. What is the point? Perfect release every time, not so much as a soul around to even try to contest my shot, and he completely rims it 99% of the time. I like the My player mode but this is getting on my nerves. I'm lucky if I make 1 wide open 3 a game. I get a huge boost for good shot selection but I want him to make the damn shot.

its not the game and its not u, but its your self-concuis missing those shots on purpose because ur a cheessier for maxing out the 3. u...... also u only need a 75 anything else is wasting points

I know exactly how you feel...I play with the shot indicator on and I'm also maxed out at 3, I can't make 3pt for the life of me. I'll be wide open, shoot, have the indicator green and just brick. I don't understand why. Even in shootaround I'll shoot, green indicator, and still miss.

I'm a 99 overall and it happens to me....this game controls whether or not your shot goes in...even if its a perfect release..it should not be like this. The player should have total control over if he makes it or not.

This is what elite was going to fix. In the demo for that game shooting was skilled based and all up to the player.....meaning u could drain 10 shots in a row or miss 10 in a row. It was all up to the player. But the game was soooo terrible it didn't even get released lol.

^Well to some extent it makes sense to have a shot based partially on player skill and also ratings. To make every shot is stupid. I find shooting in this game is already too easy. I did a my player with a 3 PT specialist and his three was between 75-80 before I stopped playing and I was shooting 50% from three. In association I shoot like 70% with Anthony Morrow from three. It is already too easy to make shots. I play on all star, sim by the way.

I'm glad you mentioned this. After looking through the attributes I figured I would try consistency to help me get out of missing so many threes. So I started pouring points into consistency and it definitely makes a huge difference. I can usually make super wide open 3's now and once I get rolling I start killing them.

It's funny people complain about missing open 3's like being open suppose to magically make the ball go in the net. The game was programmed to play off the percentages and not simply because you're open. You're not going to hit 80% of threes because that almost never happens in a real NBA game. The game wasn't programmed so you could score 90 points with your 99rated player.

My 3pt rating is 80 and I hit about 5 threes a game.. contested or not.. I shoot 40% on the season.. but consistency rating is not a big deal my is 23.

It's funny how people think that in real NBA games, players miss wide open 3's all the time. And it's more realistic for a 99 3pt shooter to make 1 of 10 wide open threes? Don't be a clown.
