Shot creators are useless
NBA 2K18 has made a lot of new changes to archetypes from previous years. One including making the “shot creator” build useless this year. I am going to tell you why. Shot creators struggle at the three point line even if they are shooting fadeaways. Yet, Pure Sharpshooter can shoot mid- ranges this year and get SLIVER difficult shots. Last year sharpshooters couldn’t pull up consistently from inside the arc. This year they can shoot the mid-range and the three ball. While shot creators can’t shoot a three point shot to save its life. I have a pure shot creator 6’4 PG with all its badges HOF. So I have a lot of expert with shot creators. I even made a shot creators last year and had tons of fun with the build. This year on the other hand I feel like a shot creator is a waste of vc!!!
Maybe a dual-archetype was the way to go with this build. But a pure shot creator is kinda of useless. Maybe useless is a harsh way to describe them but I feel like that should be a lot more versatile than what they are. They can dribble they get gold ankle breaker and at 6’4 they get 88 ball control. They can shoot the mid-range with a max mid range of 99. They aren’t as versatile as I would have like to seen pure shot creators this year. Sharpshooters or some kinda of dual archetype with sharpshooter in it is definitely the way to go.
If you didn’t notice there is a reason that there are so many sharpshooting builds on 2K18. I know of one good shot creator in particular name “Tyceno.” He is very skilled with the build and I would recommend watching his videos if you want to become better with the build. You can find a link to his channel Here
The shot creator is a fun build most definitely but its not a build that I would use in a serious competitive situation. I really like the shot creator build but 2K gave it no love this year. I wish they would at least nerf sharpshooters because they can shoot the mid-range and the three ball consistently and they can kinda of take movers. I honestly should have made a article about how sharpshooter are overpowered but I rather give shot creators the spotlight. They have been slept on ever since they became an archetype.
