Default NBA Live and OTP

So some good news. Although it won't be included in NBA Live 15 (which drops in 2 weeks), I did find out that 16 will have OTP included in next year's game. That right there is enough for me to jump ship to EA from 2K.

I think I'll hold off from buying any NBA game this year, but I will definitely be buying Live 16 with this great news

Next year should be a great year for OTP....FIFA, NBA, hopefully NHL and maybe Madden will follow suit.

All EA has to do then is make a baseball game that will have OTP and I'm all set for online sports gaming

I would almost agree. I love the 2k gameplay and graphics, but the servers are just horrendous year in and year out. Next year is suppose to see the return of MyCrew for NBA 2k16 so I think that will keep me instead of switching to NBA Live. EA needs to really impress this year for me to think about it.

I'm right with you about the gameplay and graphics for 2K. Always been a fan there, but if I can play 5 v 5 OTP with my friends on a team, that's more important to me.

So this announcement was a huge let down.

Their OTP, is you and 3 friends to play AI teams in a "Summer Circuit". Now I'm not interested in this game at all.

And now I'm confused because I just found this page.

Ok, I think I figured out the difference.

The first is their OTP league (but it sucks you only play vs AI)/

The second is their OTP drop in (pick up games). Yes, you can play 5v5 humans but it doesn't mean shit. No league, standings, stats, etc.

I was really hoping for an EASHL style of league but for basketball. Oh well.....
