Best Possession Tactic in Football Manager 2017: Download Here

I’ve recently shared with you my best attacking tactic for FM 2017 and I still love it and consider it great, but the truth is that sometimes I want to see my players play possession football a bit more and when I play top teams like Barcelona, for example, the tactic doesn’t work. I need possession combined with attacking power and I need it badly.

But no matter how much I tried to tweak my existing tactic to improve my possession without losing the offensive edge, I wasn’t able to. There was always something that didn’t quite tick there and it was driving me crazy. I actually started thinking that it’s impossible to get a solid possession tactic in Football Manager 2017.

And then I headed to the community which proved to be insanely helpful at all times and my prayers were finally answered: I found an amazing possession tactic for FM 2017. The bonus: it also uses a 4-3-3 formation, so switching from my attacking tactic to it and having players adapt to it is really fast!

The tactic, created by The Reckonist is available for download here and you should download it right away. All you have to do is to hit the Subscribe button and the tactic will be automatically downloaded by Steam. Launch FM 2017 again and you will be able to load it into your game – it’s that easy!

You have all the details for the tactic on Steam and it works just great with those defaults selected. However, in my case, since my team was playing a very narrow passing game, I tweaked down the passing a notch and made it shorter. I have no complaints about this tactic with the small change I made and I am happy that I finally have a solid possession tactic to face the more difficult opponents with.

Let me know if you download this tactic and manage to put it to a good use as I did. And for scoring goals, don’t forget to create my Scoring Machine tactic and enjoy using it as well. These two work well in combination as they have many common grounds, so you can easily switch from one to another when situation requires it!

This Is the Best Attacking Tactic for FM 2017: 4-3-3 Scoring Machine

Everybody loves playing an exciting game where your team scores a ton of goals and you have a lot of things to be proud of. And even though getting a great attacking tactic in Football Manager 2017 isn’t as easy as it was several years ago with the cheat tactics (anybody remembers the Diablo tactic from back in the days?) you can still get some amazing results with what you have.

And I believe that I have managed, after testing and tweaking for a little bit, to find the best attacking tactic for FM 2017: a 4-3-3 tactic that will see your team score a ton of goals. It works great for big teams as well as mediocre teams, but you will need a few great players in a few positions in order to make it work as it should. But I have all the details here and we’ll make it work together!

Best attacking tactic for Football Manager 2017

One thing you must note before trying this tactic is that your players have to get used to it, as it might not work as soon as you implement it. But work on it and get your players familiar with it and it will work like a charm!

So, here are all the details for my 4-3-3 scoring machine tactic:

First of all, we’ll start with the team instructions. We will want to play an extremely aggressive game where we’ll try to dominate the opponent from start to end. This works both on home and away matches, so don’t worry about the high offensive settings! You can’t score goals if you don’t try to. So here are the team instructions:

If there is something that you’d like to tweak a little bit, you are free to try, but the only things that might not change this tactic from a very offensive, goal machine type of tactic, would be: reduce the tempo down a notch (also useful later in the game when you are leading comfortably) and reduce closing down a bit as well. Anything else will just reduce the offensive flow of the team!

Now regarding the player position and roles, here they are:

best-attacking-tactic-fm-2017

I think it’s pretty obvious so far to see which are the most important players in your team: the wingbacks have to be extremely solid and with great passing/crossing in order to make the tactic work. They are, in my opinion, the most important piece of the puzzle. The central striker is also very important as it will be your main source of goals. You can even switch him from Deep Lying forward to something even more offensive and the tactic will still work. Most of the game will be pretty fun to watch: the wing backs will pass into space for your deep lying forwards, who will then work the ball into the box for your central striker and goals will keep coming! This is an amazing tactic!

I didn’t even go for specific player instructions (because I am that lazy and the tactic works without them) but you can do some extra tweaking if you want and make it an even better offensive tactic for the game.

One thing must be repeated though: don’t touch and don’t change anything until your players are fully accustomed to playing this 4-3-3 Scoring Machine tactic for FM 2017!

Tyranny Cheats: Codes and Console Commands

Tyranny is that RPG that fans of the genre have been eagerly anticipating (maybe without even knowing it) for a long while now. The game brings back all the great stuff of classic top down RPGs, feeding our hack & slashing hunger with excellent food. And we’re here to help make that experience a lot easier for you by sharing a bunch of Tyranny cheats: console commands that you can use at any given time in the game to gain advantages.

It seems that modern games have also forgotten about this great method of making the game better (for some) and easier for most: cheat codes. But fortunately Obsidian did everything they could in order to deliver the full experience and this includes the welcome console commands that help you cheat in the game.

So without further ado, here are the Tyranny console commands you can use to cheat your way through the game:

(please note that many console commands listed by other players don’t actually work, which is a shame, but the ones below are guaranteed to work)

First, activate the cheats console by pressing the tilde (~) key, which is usually the key to the left of the 1 key on most keyboards.

Then, write iRoll20s and press Enter. This basically activates the cheats console (and if you want to deactivate it at a future time, simply type iRoll20s again and press Enter).

Now type the console commands as instructed below to get the indicated advantage or effect:

additem money_01_ir XX – adds XX iron rings (just write any number you wish)
additem money_01_cr XX – adds XX copper rings
additem money_01_br XX – adds XX bronze rings
addexperience XX – gives all party members XX additional experience points
god – party becomes unkillable (type again and press enter to disable)
healparty – completely heals all party members and restores stamina
unlockall – opens all containers on the map
rest – restore all encounter abilities without using camping supplies
nofog – turn off fog of war

How to Fix Civilization 6 Crashes, Loading Screen Freezing and Other Problems

Civilization

Civilization 6 has been out for a while now, but unfortunately some gamers are still having some trouble with the game. There are reports about game crashes, freezes, loading related issues and more bugs and errors but fortunately for most cases there are fixes and tweaks you can try to make things better. And in this article, we’re here to share with you a complete list of Civilization 6 fixes for crashes, loading screen problems, freezing and so on.

So let’s not waste any time! If you have any problem running the game, check out our guide on how to fix common and less common Civilization VI problems below!

Fixing the Windows Defender Game Freezing bug

For some reason, at the moment of writing this, it appears that Windows Defender considers Civilization 6 malware or at least a threat for some users and it doesn’t allow the game to work properly. The game will surely get whitelisted sooner rather than later, but if you still have Windows Defender related problems when trying to load the game, you can easily add an exception manually.

All you have to do is to click the windows button in the lower left corner of your screen, then type Defender. Open the program and click Settings in the new window. Scroll all the way down in the window that opens and under the Exclusions tab, click the “Add exclusion”. You can add the executable found in your game’s install folder, or add the entire folder and never have to worry about it again!

This is the fix for almost all reported problems where the game freezes during the loading screen or crashes during the loading screen.

General fixes for errors & crashes

If the solution above doesn’t work or you have other problems with the game, you should always go through what I call the regular checklist: make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements to run the game, try to tune down the visuals a little bit (or more), verify the game’s integrity in Steam (Right Click Civilization 6 in your Steam library, select Properties, go to the “Local files” tab and select “Verify game’s integrity). Also, make sure that your drivers are up to date.

Run the game on Windows 8

It seems that Windows 8 users must have two critical Windows updates installed in order to be able to run the game properly. You can download and install the required Windows 8 updates here and here. These updates are reported to fix most problems for Windows 8 owners.

How to fix sound problems in Civilization 6

A few users are reporting sound-related issues, like crackling noises, sound that is not synced and things like that. The only problem that we found so far is to lower the sound quality in the Game’s settings: switching it to 16 bit usually fixes the problems for most users. We’re looking into this and will report if we find any other new potential fixes.

These would be our tips and tricks to fix Civilization 6 / VI crashes, freezes and other problems. If you still have a problem that isn’t listed here, let us know and maybe we’ll be able to help – or the community will. Also, if you have other solutions to potential game-related problems, don’t hesitate to share them with us in the comment section below.

Civilization 6 Guide: Tips, Tricks & Strategies to Keep Winning

Civilization 6 Guide

Civilization 6 is an extremely complex game and you could easily write a huge novel trying to create a complete strategy guide. But with gamers having limited time (and probably interest) to read hundreds of pages, we’ll try to sum things up in as few words as possible in our complete Civilization 6 guide that will help you win games. In this Civilization VI guide, we have tips, tricks and strategies that you should always use in order to build that amazing Civilization that will stand the tests of time.

You will quickly see that it’s all about planning and starting strong: a strong start will make things easier and even though you can still fall behind, chances are you won’t if you play it smart. But start on the wrong foot and you’ll lose the game sooner rather than later (or just struggle all the way to the end). We don’t want that to happen, so we’re here to share with you some Civilization 6 tips and strategies in our complete guide that’s mostly aimed at beginner players. But even advanced gamers might find something useful here, so read on and prepare for world domination!

1. It all starts with the beginning
Choosing a great leader and civilization is key to victory. Even more, understanding each civ’s strengths and potential weaknesses is extremely important as you will know what route to follow. Usually, all players have a favorite civilization or more: so make sure you pick the winning one. We have already shared the best 5 civilizations in the game – so make sure you read it and use it as a starting point or inspiration in case you need some alternatives.

2. Your neighbors are not your friends
There are few Civilization games where you can be friends with your neighbors and Civilization 6 makes no exception. Your neighbors are perfect to become an extension of your empire sooner rather than later because it’s easy to reach them and if you don’t, they will most likely try to take over your cities. So always consider your neighbors your immediate enemies and work on improving relations with civilizations that are farther away.

A good strategy to block other civilizations from progressing or establishing diplomatic relations is to try and keep them away from the world. If the map permits it, try building cities that block access to parts of the world by land. A well placed city, for example, surrounded by mountains, can easily keep a civilization away from exploring and progressing. I found throughout the games that maps usually have these passes through the mountains which, if you can control them, give you greater powers over other civs.

3. City States are your Friends
Unlike your opponents where the closest should be considered your immediate enemy, the City States should work differently: consider them and try to make them your friends, especially early on in the game as you will have better bonuses and gains. Work with the closest and keep the relations solid because eventually you will make them yours! But until you do, reap on the benefits!

4. Specialize your cities
Planning your cities, specializing them for different aspects (military cities, culture cities, science ones and so on) is more and more important with each new game in the series, and today’s game makes it extremely important for you to specialize your cities and plan well ahead.

Districts are the biggest change and challenge, especially during your first few playthroughs as you don’t know everything about them. The adjacency bonus comes into play as well, complicating things a bit, but you should always build your cities with a plan in mind. Try to think over the ages and place everything carefully, considering future bonuses from future buildings and districts. Playing the game randomly or going for the immediate benefits won’t prove successful in the long run and you risk being left behind if you don’t plan out your cities carefully!

5. Trade routes are extremely important
I remember when I first saw the intro video, before the game was launched, that I laughed when I saw it presenting the main character and his trade caravan. “Who uses these?” I wondered, but as soon as I started playing the game, I understood that trade caravans and trade routes are extremely important. First, because for a very long time they will be the only way for you to build roads and your units to move faster on the map. And second, because they offer huge bonuses in the long run.

Yes, trade routes go with the same planning mechanics as the cities and everything else in the game. Remember that once you have established a Trading Post in a city, future trade routes going through the city will generate more gold. In other words, make sure to plan your routes ahead, starting with the closest city that’s on route to another city. Work your way to cities that are farther and farther away and soon the extra gold you’ll be racking from each extra Trading Post will make a big difference!

6. Get the Eureka moments for easy science progress
I often found myself delaying the research of a technology because I was close to getting the Eureka moment. It seems strange and it could backfire if not applied correctly, but this strategy is good in most cases. Just make sure that you work towards getting the boosts and reduction in research times with the Eureka moments – the early technologies are extremely easy to boost – and you’ll get ahead with your tech tree very fast. Research boosted technologies first and always consider the requirements for Eureka moments, but don’t make it your goal to get them all because that’s impossible. Pick your battles and go for the ones that are easy to boost!

7. Build a strong military early on
And by “strong” I don’t mean spamming warriors like most civilizations do. Take your time, be patient for a short while and as soon as you have something better than the warrior, start producing that unit in large numbers. Take advantage of any bonuses your Civ might offer (like the War Cart if you’re playing Gilgamesh, for example) and always think about the future: know which units upgrade to amazing mid-game and late game units and focus on producing those. Barbarians will be your main source of nuisance, generally, in early game, so deal with them first, while building the army for the future!

8. How to win Wars
You should always plan for war and at least be prepared to defend if you don’t have any motives to start wars yourself. Starting a war is serious business which could come with serious consequences, so always make sure that you are ready for it once you start it. This means having a solid military (ideally you should at least have an estimate of the troops the enemy has and build troops to easily defeat them), including siege weapons and range units. Always produce the strongest possible units, upgrade troops if you can and make sure you have some money put aside in case you need to quickly supplement your armed forces with a couple of new units.

Extremely important during war time is to keep your units alive: don’t hesitate to retreat if things get too complicated, but always try to destroy enemy units while keeping yours alive. Try to fight one one front at a time in order to increase chances and take advantage of any adjacency bonuses, generals or whatever bonuses you might have. Take advantage of the option to name your troops in order to know about their particular bonuses in combat. Have defensive troops on hand, ready to protect your offensive ones while they heal and always push slowly but steadily towards the enemy borders – the farther away you keep the battle from your cities, the better.

Have in mind that wars will take longer as you progress through the ages, so early game is extremely important if you’re war minded. Try to conquer at least one civilization with a minimum of 2-3 cities by the end of the Classical Age in order to have the number of cities required to produce and maintain a solid military. Then slowly work your way up, building troops and keeping them alive in order to succeed in battle!

9. Keep an eye on the AI players & agendas
The AI has some agendas in Civilization VI and they will more or less follow them throughout the ages. Keep an eye on those agendas and try to play according to them, taking advantage of those agendas that could prove to be beneficial for your own empire and taking out first the civs with agendas you don’t like.

Also make sure to always keep an eye on your opponents and see how close they are to victory. I will never forget a game I had against Saladin early on (yes, the Religious victory guy – I didn’t know that at the time) which was pretty much isolated from the world with just a few cities and no chances of accomplishing anything. When I checked, completely randomly, on him, I saw that he was close to grabbing the Religious victory because he turned his disadvantage into missionaries which I completely ignored, but spread his religion. Just several turns later I lost the game. So ALWAYS keep an eye on enemy civilizations and take measures against them if any measures are required.

These would be my tips and tricks for Civlization 6 players and hopefully these help you better understand the game and plan your moves ahead. There is, of course, a lot more that you should consider – smaller things usually – that complicate the game and make everything more fun and interesting. Covering them all would require thousands of words and we’re not ready to write novels yet.

But if you have any other tips and tricks or strategies that you think are extremely useful and worth sharing, don’t hesitate to let us know by commenting below!

Civilizaton 6 Pantheons Guide: Best Pantheon for Your Civilization

Civilizaton

In my recent guide to founding the perfect Civilization VI religion, I told you about the importance of Pantheons in the game. The Pantheons stay with your civilization over the ages, no matter what Religion you decide to found and, even more importantly, even if the Civilizaton AI manages to destroy your religion or convert your cities. In other words, the Pantheon offers a permanent bonus, so it’s best st choose the perfect one for you.

I am here to share with you just that: my opinion on the best Pantheon in Civilization 6 (which is indeed highly subjective, because play style, civilization and the type of victory you’re aiming for matter equally when choosing it). I am also here to share with you all the Pantheons available in Civilization 6, so that you can always have an overview of all and decide which one is best for your current situation or playthrough.

So without further ado, these are the 22 Pantheons in the game:

Dance of the Aurora: Holy Site districts get +1 Faith from adjacent Tundra tiles.
Desert Folklore: Holy Site districts get +1 Faith from adjacent Desert tiles.
Sacred Path: Holy Site districts get +1 Faith from adjacent Rainforest tiles.
River Goddess: +1 Amenity to cities if they have a Holy Site district adjacent to a River.
Monument to the Gods: +15% Production to Ancient and Classical era Wonders.
Divine Spark: +1 Great Person Point from Holy Site (Prophet), Campus (Scientist), and Theater Square (Writer) districts.

Lady of the Reeds and Marshes: +1 Production from Marsh, Oasis, and Floodplains.
God of the Sea: +1 Production from Fishing Boats.
God of the Open Sky: +1 Culture from Pastures.
Goddess of the Hunt: +1 Food from Camps.
Stone Circles: +2 Faith from Quarries.
Religious Idols: +1 Faith from Mines over Luxury and Bonus resources.
God of Craftsmen: +1 Production from Mines over Strategic resources.
Goddess of Festivals: +1 Food from Wine, Incense, Cocoa, Tobacco, Coffee, and Tea Plantations.
Oral Tradition: +1 Culture from Banana, Citrus, Cotton, Dyes, Silk, Spices, and Sugar Plantations.
God of the Forge: +25% Production toward Ancient and Classical military units.
Initiation Rites: +50 Faith for each Barbarian Outpost cleared.
God of Healing: Increases Healing by +30 in your Holy Site district, or any adjacent tiles.
God of War: Bonus Faith equal to 50% of the strength of each enemy unit killed within 8 tiles of a Holy Site district you own.
Fertility Rites: City growth rate is 10% higher.
Religious Settlements: Border expansion rate is 15% higher.
Goddess of the Harvest: Harvesting a resource or removing a feature receives Civ6 Faith equal to the other yield’s quantity.

What is the best Pantheon in Civilization VI?

As I said, it all depends on your play style and future strategies and, in most cases, it depends on the types of resources you have close by. However, I will stick to the recommendations I made about choosing the right Pantheon in my religion guide:

Divine Spark: Great Person Points are vital and this one gives you +1 Great Person Point from Holy Site (Prophet), Campus (Scientist), and Theater Square (Writer) districts. In other words, a great bonus!
a Pantheon based on the resources that are close to your cities. There are three pantheons in this category: Lady of the Reeds and Marshes (my favorite, giving +1 production from Marsh, Oasis, and Floodplains), Goddess of Festivals (+1 food from Wine, Incense, Cocoa, Tobacco, Coffee, and Tea Plantations) and Oral Tradition ( +1 Culture from Banana, Citrus, Cotton, Dyes, Silk, Spices, and Sugar Plantations). Pick the one that will benefit you the most based on the resources you have close to your cities and future cities.

Do you agree with my suggestions, or you feel that there’s another Pantheon that you should choose to make it easier for you to win a game? Let us know by sharing your opinion in the comment section below.

Civilization 6 Guide to Religion: How to Found the Best Religion for Your Civ

Civilization

One very interesting aspect in Civilization 6 is Religion. We’ve been introduced to it by the Gods & Kings expansion for Civ 5, but there’s the chance that many fans of the series didn’t get the chance to try it out. Plus, religion in Civilization VI is an upgrade to what Gods & Kings gave us so I am here to share with you all the details about this relatively new in-game feature and especially share with you a complete guide on how to found the best Civ 6 religion for your civilization.

Of course, as it goes with most things related to such a complex game as Civilization VI, the concept of “best religion for your civilization” is based on multiple factors, like the civilization you’re playing as, the type of victory you’re trying to achieve and your play style. So indeed things might vary a bit from a game to another and even from player to player, but what I will share with you in this article is what I think to be, overall, the best choice for a religion especially early on in the game as it offers massive advantages in the long run.

Best Religion for Civilization 6

Founding a religion in the game is not the only thing you have to worry about: make sure you can hold onto it because there are cases when immediately after founding a religion, the AI sends missionaries and converts your cities to their religion, basically killing your religion, getting them one step closer to religious victory and resulting in you basically waste a lot of time for building a religion that does not exist.

So my suggestion would be to always rush build your religion (get the Holy Site ASAP, get the Policy card for more Great Prophet points if you have those, and go for Holy Site Prayers in your Holy Site city, turning at the end your faith into Great Prophet Points). I personally believe that religion can be a real pain in the game, so you have to get into this as soon as possible in order to at least stand a chance against other civilizations and religions.

Choosing the Pantheon

The first thing you will have to select is the Pantheon. The good thing about this is that it stays with you no matter what happens in the long run and how other religions affect your civilization, so pick wisely! There are 22 pantheons in the game, but my suggestion would be to focus on those that give you permanent bonuses – so those limited to a specific Era are not that good in my opinion, even though they can be helpful if you want to rush start your way to victory. Here is what I would suggest to get as a Pantheon, based on your play style:

Divine Spark: Great Person Points are vital and this one gives you +1 Great Person Point from Holy Site (Prophet), Campus (Scientist), and Theater Square (Writer) districts. In other words, a great bonus!
– a Pantheon based on the resources that are close to your cities. There are three pantheons in this category: Lady of the Reeds and Marshes (my favorite, giving +1 production from Marsh, Oasis, and Floodplains), Goddess of Festivals (+1 food from Wine, Incense, Cocoa, Tobacco, Coffee, and Tea Plantations) and Oral Tradition ( +1 Culture from Banana, Citrus, Cotton, Dyes, Silk, Spices, and Sugar Plantations). Pick the one that will benefit you the most based on the resources you have close to your cities and future cities.

Founding the religion

Once you get the Prophet and send him to the Holy Site, you can finally found that religion. The Pantheon you have chosen stays with you, but you get to select two beliefs. I would personally go for custom ones and my favorites are:

Founder Belief: Church Property. You get +2 Gold for each city following this religion. In other words, you will get a ton of money if you have or plan to build a large civilization and can get ahead of other Civs to spread your own. This is extremely OP because you can spend that Gold on Units and get the upper hand when war starts – even if it takes you by surprise. I would never choose anything else here!

Second Belief: Zen Meditation. This is a bit trickier, since they way you play the game matters a lot here. However, I would go for the Amenity bonus because I usually had problems with Amenities in all my playthroughs currently, which I consider strange, but might be the norm. If you don’t foresee any trouble with the lack of Amenities in your civilization, don’t pick this one and go for something that gives you bonuses that help your Civ (like the Mosque which gives extra Faith and more power to your Religious troops).

Later on in the game, you can choose up to two more beliefs for your religion, but you can only choose the ones that are left after other civilizations made their choices, so it’s more difficult to anticipate and give suggestions for that – and it also makes choosing the first two even more important!

Conclusion
Religion is extremely important in Civilization 6 and founding the right one for your people is just one piece of the pie. But getting the right bonuses can help you a lot – and it’s up for you to make them count. Either way, don’t ignore religion or do so at your own peril!

Best NBA 2K17 SG Build: Create the Best Shooting Guard for My Career

I am back with a new guide on how to build the best players in NBA 2K17 and this time I am going to share with you my insane SG build for NBA 2K17. I’ve been exploring a bit this year and I decided that playing a SG is even better than what I usually play – Small Forward – and it could be even more fun than a Point Guard, because everybody plays PGs nowadays…

So without further ado, if you want to build a killer SG in NBA 2K17, you’re at the right place as I will take you through the process and share with you the most important aspects in creating you’re player. Let’s check this out!

As you probably know already, the most important thing when it comes to building a great player in the game – and a Shooting Guard makes no exception – is selecting the best player height. There are multiple builds out there, many suggestions with insanely tall players that look out of this world, but for my perfect SG build I decided to play things a bit differently and focus on the things that matter. You want your SG to score. You want him to score often. You want to get those points. It’s the easiest way to play and extremely rewarding. So here is how I build my superstar SG:

First, go for the Sharpshooter archetype. Forget about Shot Creator, forget about Slasher builds, as a SG you’ll get the most out of the Sharpshooter. Set your player’s height to 6’3″ and you’ll get 91 in three point and mid range shooting. Now that’s what I am talking about! Don’t forget to set your Wingspan and shoulder width to the maximum in order to get some defensive bonuses as well! Set a decent weight of 180 lbs and you’re ready to roll!

At 6’3″ you won’t be too small, nor too tall to lose a lot in terms of stats. You should obviously focus on your 3 Point and Mid Range stats first, but don’t forget about Agility and Playmaking! Take care of these, work a little bit on the other stats (I’d focus afterwards on Defending) and you’ll soon build that superstar player that won’t be stopped by anybody. You will literally score three after three after three, no matter if the shots are contested or not. That’s what happens with you have 91 in those areas, boys!

So yes, this is by far the best possible build for a SG in NBA 2K17 and probably one of the most lethal player builds in the game, both for My Career, as well as My Park. Anything, actually. Any game mode you try, you will rule it with your shooting. Now that’s what I am talking about – so give it a try and I promise you’ll love this build!

Don’t forget to share your opinions on my recommended SG build for NBA 2K17 below and share any suggestions you might have for making the player better.

I am going to share here how to build a legendary SF in NBA 2K17, similar in play style with Lebron James, an an overall superstar no matter what type of play you’re running. Don’t forget to also check out my PG build in case you need some variety!

Before starting this article, I’ll be honest with you and tell you that I also spent a lot of time giving the 6’3″ Small Forward a try – it’s been and maybe it still is all the rage on YouTube, with people claiming that he’s the best thing since Michael Jordan had a baby with Wilt Champerlain (which, by the way, never happened!). I tried it and I didn’t like it. Guarding Lebron in MyCareer with a 6.3 guy isn’t fun. Scoring isn’t fun. Getting great stats isn’t fun. So I made my own, a real Small Forward that’s just like Lebron James, a player who can dunk, who can pass, dribble, defend and rebound and also shoot those baskets from mid range and the three point line. That’s what I’m talking about!

So let’s not waste a single second and let’s see how you too can build a great SF in the game. Here’s my best NBA 2K17 Small Forward build!

We’ll start by choosing the Archetype first. You will always want to be a Slasher. This is the best choice, in my opinion, for a great SF build. You get excellent stats in all areas: mid range shooting, layups and dunks, shooting off dribble, you also get amazing Agility and Playmaking stats, and on ball defense & rebounds. You’ll be an awesome scorer and great all-around player, with the only downside being that you won’t be an ace when it comes to three point shooting. Well, nobody’s perfect, but my build is as close as it gets!

You also get access to top badges like the One Man Fast break that keeps those points dropping, as well as Relentless Shooter and Tear Dropper. You’re a fast scoring freak and you’ll love it!

Next, comes the height and everything else: we’ll go for a relatively tall player at 6’8″, 235 pounds and maximum wingspan and shoulder width. If you want to get OP, always go for maximum wingspan and shoulder width, even though this makes your player look like an alien. As long as he can play, go for it!

This SF build can be quickly turned into a 90 overall player and that’s without upgrading everything! Focus on getting the Agility and Layups & Dunks in order to keep the crowds entertained with your finishes (and the points coming). You want to max out Mid Range shooting as well next as they only go up to 75, then invest in some Playmaking, Rebounds and Defending. You will never be an ace when it comes to shooting from the 3 point line or Post scoring, so ignore those and only spend your VCs on them after you get everything else done.

As a result, you will get an awesome Small Forward in the game and I guarantee you’ll love him. He will be unstoppable and will keep you entertained at all times because you’ll have to adopt a fast, spectacular play. You will be great in defense, you can grab those rebounds, you can move the ball around and most importantly, you will score.

This is also the closest thing I think you can have in the game to Lebron – even though he has better numbers in real life when it comes to mid range shooting and 3 points, you can’t have them all. And even if you don’t compare your player with L. James, you still get an awesome SF build for MyCareer and a player that will reach All Star status ASAP. Enjoy!
