Patch 10 for NBA 2K20 attempts to fix Pro-Am gameplay by reducing button latency. It also updates the hair styles of multiple players.

The latest patch for NBA 2K20 is out now and the reaction is about what you’d expect from the community. Patch 10 focuses on four main changes and improvements but, as you probably well know, there’s far more with NBA 2K20 that can be addressed.

For those who care about appearances, hair styles for several players have been updated to match their real-life look. According to the patch notes:

"The following players have received Hair updates to reflect their latest real-life look: D’Angelo Russell, Austin Rivers, Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington, Jrue Holiday, Kelly Oubre Jr., Myles Turner, Marquese Chriss, Devonte Graham, Jordan Poole, Cody Martin, Terance Mann, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson."

There’s no shortage of hair style requests and some tongue-in-cheek responses to the list. I think most players just want to see other facets of the game improved.

"Button latency has been reduced when playing Pro-Am games, resulting in a more familiar user experience."

Speaking of gameplay improvements, button latency in Pro-Am games has been reduced. There’s no shortage of complaints online when it comes to online input lag and not just in Pro-Am games.

I’m more of a MyLeague player and games played online against other users are ridiculously laggy. Shooting is damn near impossible with the latency. It’s not even worth looking at the shot meter because it’s so off with the latency. You almost have to have more of a natural timing and not worry about what you see onscreen.

"The Duo overlay will now properly show badge upgrades in MyTEAM.Addressed reported concerns where users could walk onto the court in specific Neighborhood games."

These are smaller, quality of life improvements that just create a more pleasant experience overall. Nothing to get too excited about here.

Overall, outside of the hair style updates and supposed button latency improvements, there’s not much else in Patch 10 to get excited for. I’d like to see more of a focus on input latency across all online modes, not just Pro-Am games.

Today’s patch comes on the heels of NBA 2K20‘s fourth roster update. It released last week, bumping Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young up to a 90 overall. Check out the latest ratings update here.
