Sure, the likes of Lebron James and Kevin Durant will prove to be a formidable force in NBA 2K17. However, when it comes to Stephen Curry, he seems to be a difficult character to dominate. That's why for players looking to battle the Golden State Warriors, they better have something up in their arsenal. But hey, there's actually a way to stop him.
According to Polygon, the developer behind NBA 2K17 Visual, Concepts is giving fans the right tools to help them win the ball against the Golden State Warriors. The studio is letting players acquire more control than ever on the in-game court. And this is really a huge boost considering that Curry's boys have become even more powerful with the inclusion of Durant.
Moving the perspective away from NBA 2K17, Curry performed exceptionally in the league's 2015-16 season. He was able to hit over 51 percent shots from beyond the arc. And if one is to compare it to the rest of the players in NBA, the Kia Most Valuable Player shot 21 percent more from the said range.
Curry's performance proved to be over-the-top that NBA 2K17 devs can't simply account for it initially. Visual Concepts reportedly designed the upcoming title with a substantial "drop-off" in terms of shot accuracy (referring to the shots made past the 3-point territory).
So how exactly can NBA 2K17 players stop Stephen Curry and the rest of the Golden State Warriors? One noteworthy strategy is to rely on the game's sole artificial intelligence. The game's senior producer Rob Jones iterated that his team did a good amount of workarounds on all AI's for both coaches and players in the game. This could simply manifest in coaching decisions, something people would see from real-life basketball. So, in one way or another, players have to utilize the strategy screen and set up their own defense mechanism.
It should also be noted that one of the biggest changes coming to NBA 2K17 is the steal department. This time around, the opportunity to do such move all rely to the gamer's control. He can simply time his button and press, knocking the ball away.
