Live shot meter is bugged

★★★★ Newbie

Product: NBA LIVE 18
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which version? Demo
Which feature / component / location in game are you experiencing issues with? Shooting meter in PvP games
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play live with people and shoot a jump shot
What happens when the bug occurs? In the campaign the shooting meter moves at normal speed and stop when you let go of the square button. In PvP matches the shooting meter moves faster and continues to move after you've let go of square making the jumper a once in a while move to use. Even if you max the three point or mid jumper it still moves wildly. I don't know if this is on purpose or a bug but people I've played with are annoyed by the as well.
What should be happening instead? The shooting meter moves like it does on campaign mode
How severe is the bug? A - Crash/Critical

The reason why i stopped playing NBA live 18 is because you guys are not working on the mechanics that matter. You fix the shot meter sure but the lag is one sided so that does not matter. You have made the NBA- PDC code give a win to whatever player is up by the time of the disconnect, creating a new glitch where u can disconnect if u have the lead and still win. 

     The stealing of the ball from the ball handler is unrealistic, maybe like 8% of the time is a reach in call called due to an animation, anything else is a legal move which totally unrealistic. More unrealistic stuff is the blocking, and fouls called going to the rim. Seems to me that only big mismatches get fouls called, you guys removed being fouled by your same position almost altogether. 

 

     These all come from me making it to top 5 in the top 100 leaderboards in H2H just to have the disconnect glitch drop me down to a lower number, so i am hanging up my nba Live 18 and saying hey, at least they tried. More changes and COMMUNICATION WITH THE COMMUNITY WOULD BE BEST, so please try it. 

i was really excited for this game, but the hype is gone.

Ever since the latest patch the shot meter goes out of control randomly it makes the game VERY UNPLAYABLE AND FRUSTRATING this only happens online I know many people with this problem ALSO please fix your servers the last patch didn’t fix it got me doing all this uo trace calling my internet service provider bringing technicians to my home calling Sony and EA obviously for no reason the servers should NEVER be this bad ESPECIALLY for a small community compared to the competition as a consumer why should I have to go through all of this just not to get kicked? It’s quite ridiculous if you ask me

Online lag - Playing from London

★★★★ Newbie

Hi,

 

I really enjoy the game but it is impossible to play online. Shot meter is all messed up and it is overall very laggy and a different experience than the offline mode. 

 

I do not lag in other games and have read your troubleshoot guide. 

 

Is this a EA server issue? (FIFA 18 works fine). 

 

Any thoughts or suggestions?

 

I hope you can help me fin this problem, it is extremely frustrating and I'm considering stepping to play the game.

I have this glitch as well, and I'm on Xbox One, so it doesn't only happen on the PS4. This has forced me to create a Slasher and a Post Scorer, so that way I only score using layups and dunks since the shot meter is broken when you play online. Hopefully they'll fix this soon!

Same here,  this game demoralized me with that glitch;  especially being up 30 points with a minute left in a game and the other player disconnects.  They even gave me the loss.  WTF
