2K Sports continues to rack in improvements to NBA 2K17, the latest of which was patch 1.07 for the PS4. The latest update comes with improvements to game play and tournament modes, something that should make the game challenging and more realistic.

Among the changes brought by NBA 2K17 patch, 1.07 include support for the European All-Star tournament and the NBA 2K17 All-Star Tournament and performance increases when playing in parks, according to their Facebook page. The eye-opener comes in the form of the changes to shooting efficiency, something made to render better game balance.

While the new modes and level ups should be something, the changes on how a player can shoot on NBA 2K17 should be something to watch. The change realistically makes the game better, meant to discourage players from over-dribbling.

2K Sports gameplay director Mike Wang, NBA 2K17 players who over-dribble will see a drop in field goal percentage, Attack of the Fan Boy reported. Hence, players may want to do more moving or share the ball to get better chances of sending the spheroid into the hoop.

The latest batch of improvements for NBA 2K17 should be something to check out, likely getting its share of criticism and praise. The development team is apparently trying to make the game as realistic as possible, setting it apart from arcade mode to real-time simulation as seen in actual NBA action.

This new update follows a previous post which detailed the fluctuations in NBA 2K17 player ranks presumably based on NBA player performance thus far. Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls got a big push while Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors saw his stats dip.

2K Sports continues to evolve the game based on the events actually transpiring for the current season. Such entails a lot of work but necessary if they are to make NBA 2K17 as parallel to the real-life tournament as possible.
