  9. Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball 2022 is the next version of the basketball franchise that keeps growing and growing every season. Wolverine Studios listened to their community and heard the ask of making parts of the good more immersive. The free agency process and the players in the game seemed to be missing a little something. So Wolverine Studios stepped up to deliver new features and besides some really great new cosmetic changes. NOTE: The game is not licensed by the NBA or the NBA players union! Community members have put together the graphics. See below. With the additions of the “Slybelle Real World Mod (Team Logos, Names)” and the “GM Games – Pro Photo Pack (Player, Draft, Coach, Court Photos)” you’ll be playing a franchise mode full of graphics, realism and life. Mods are here: New Features Wording is courtesy of Wolverine Studios – All new personality types allow each player, coach and general manager to have unique characteristics for you to manage and for them to interact with each other in the game. Each particular personality type has its own tendencies towards the game’s ratings in loyalty, motivation, consistency, greed, winning, work ethic and demands for playing time for each player to shape players in a certain relatable fashion. USING A MOD FROM GM GAMES. Check out Alex Caruso the ‘Artist’ — Even a transparent art canvas in the background Free agency has been totally revamped with the addition of a player meeting system. Have in game meetings with free agents you are courting, get feedback from them on what they are looking for in a new team and explore the new promise system which allows you to entice free agents by making them certain guarantees about your team. Fail to live up to them though and end up with unhappy players demanding trades. A new option allows you to shop a player to the entire league and get an immediate list of teams who have interest in the player as well as other recent new features like learning about what type of build your trading partners are doing, see what their needs are, get offers on demand, and a sign and trade option to get something before your star player leaves town. Rookie scouting has been completely overhauled to give you a much more clear and useful system to scout your future stars. Assign your scouting points to specific tasks that will benefit you most in your decision making so that when draft time comes around you are armed with the details you want whether it is basic overall ratings for each player or a time consuming deep dive scouting report looking for diamonds in the rough.

  19. sim basketball leagues, everyone gets 5 more free leagues and donors get 10 more! The first trial Basketball Auto Leagues are now open. Anyone interested in a custom basketball league can donate per usual, or reach out to me if you’re interested in running a league but don’t have the funds. Okay now to some interesting survey results. Here are the snippets: I had no freakin’ idea so many people were enthusiastic about a football version of PC. I was also surprised so few people were interested in basketball. There was a fair amount of enthusiasm for an RPG-type game, with more people wanting to be a GM (75%) than an on-field player (50%). It was fairly split between people wanting an RPG to be a single-player or multi-player experience. While there were a few disgruntled people (as to be expected), I would say over 95% of responses were incredibly positive, and many of you said a lot of really nice things, so thank you! While there were some common themes in the wish-list section, and even some popular wishes I had not heard before (like the desire for a Hall of Fame for Custom Leagues), overall, almost everyone had a different “wish” - which goes to show, there’s a lot that could be added, but there are no silver-bullet enhancements that will satisfy a large number of people at once Alright, so what does all this feedback mean?? There may simply not be a big audience for sim basketball. Or, those people are out there but I just have to find them and market to them. Those of you who didn't love Hoops Playground might want to give the real game a try since it's quite different. I personally have been surprised how much I’ve enjoyed the basketball sim myself. I always used to think “baseball is the only game that can sim based off stats” but I think basketball works surprisingly well. You definitely need to draft more of a TEAM and not just star players, because you need players who excel on the boards and on defense as much as you need scorers, but that feels true to life. The overwhelming interest in football definitely surprised me a bit. I have to seriously consider a roadmap to launch it. The response to RPG ideas was a little more positive than I was expecting, so that was interesting. It makes sense people liked the GM idea more than the on-field player idea since PC is really all about owning/managing a team. Thanks to so many of you for your feedback, this was by far the most active survey I’ve seen. I look forward to the continued improvement of the PC experience! ]]View the full article
