The fifth big update for NBA 2K20 has arrived, with a number of additional key fixes, changes and additions looking to improve the game. Let’s take a look at the patch notes.
Coming in at 20.59 GB — NBA 2K20‘s updates thus far have all been on the heavy side — is the fifth post-release update, and looks to fixes up some issues related to badge progression, which has long hindered the experience for players since launch.
Interestingly, the update looks at speed issues, which were, ironically, brought about by increases to pacing in past updates. Thanks to NBA 2K pro game PoorBoyOnline for posting the notes.
Senior gameplay producer, Mike Wang, endorsed the Tweet, and elaborated further.
Some patch 1.05 gameplay changes to be aware of:
- Successful coach challenges won’t use a timeout
- Fix for baseline dunks that weren’t triggering properly
- Adjust Pro Stick window for hop step gathers so left or right performs normal dunks/layups
- Fewer missed “full white” releases
- Buff Pick Dodger to match Brick Wall strength
- Fix Steve Nash sig dribble style yo-yo ball bug
- Widen the speed gap, especially to reduce the speeds of low-rated bigs
“To clarify the fix for “full whites,” shooting %’s were untouched. Shooting will be the same as it was pre-patch. It just fixes inconsistencies between what the shot meter shows and the actual outcome,” Wang detailed.
