Default Is it cheating in 2K..

to control an off the ball player on defense?

I was playing a money game yesterday with my roommate, he was minny and I was Houston. He's dirty with Rubio setting up teammates and making layups/driving so I decided to play off the ball with harden, let the cpu d him up, and flank him on drives and passes.

He didn't start biitching about it til 2 minutes left in the game when I hit a three to go up by 11.. So it was bullshit anyway. But is that considered cheap?

He is just mad that he lost and grasping at straws. He could have switched over and D you up, but he didnt and he lost.

I do that all the time and is not considered cheating if you can do that in game. Your friend is just salty you won.

He usually beats my ass.. I lost 30 last week over a couple games by a combined like 5 points. I missed 2 game winners and then switched to this strategy and it is so much harder to score on.

But everyone else in the room agreed with him that it was 'like I wasn't really playing him' and it was like playing the computer.. Which is beyond bullshit to me.

You found a legitimate mechanic to adapt to his style of play. If he can't adapt to score, then he's one dimensional and doesn't understand the game well enough. Adaptation is an important skill that requires understanding the mechanics of the game.

It's kind of lame to do it all game, but I wouldn't say it's cheating. It should be noted that shots go in at a higher clip when contested by the CPU to add incentive for playing on-ball D.

it IS kind of taking the easy way out. instead of trying to play him 1 on 1, you hide behind the computer staying in front of him while you play his computer guys. you know who he is going to pass to because you have played him plenty of times. but it IS a strategy. i say go with it, until he adjusts

Hall of fame..and it was all about Rubio. It's easy to cheese 3s if you're playing with a 3pt shooting ball handler against the cpu, but Rubio doesn't shoot well. This kid will run circles around until he beats me a cpu helps and he hits the open man. You give a guy 15 seconds to dribble around and he will create space if he's any good. But the cpu shadows a lot better and I'm much better at going for steals and blocks of the ball than the cpi is.

I don't do it for every game.. We played paces nets and I would user guard deron and call for doubles on any defender not guarding Joe Johnson.. Because it's too easy to make 3s on a cpu.

Default Re: Is it cheating in 2K..

It was a popular complaint when I used to play it online. Playing against friends it's never been brought up, but it does get annoying when everytime I pass the ball to the player one of my friends was guarding he switches off. I think 2K rewards on-ball defense, though, by making a contested shot by a user more effective than that of the cpu

Default Re: Is it cheating in 2K..

I do it all the time. In fact, only time I actually guard the ball handler is if it's a big man in the post. I don't understand how it's cheating when it's available in-game to do.
It's your friend's fault for not being good enough to adjust to your game style. He just sucks.

I usually control the center and let the computer guard up and then i just literally stand in the paint and contest everything. The game sucks at calling 3 second violations just like in real life anyway
