Here's how it all works. Synergy Sports is a sports technology company that provides near real-time analytics and data to all 30 NBA teams. Here’s a quick look at some of the info and functionality they provide:
NBA teams use this data to build scouting reports, coach players and much more. This data is available at an extraordinarily granular level for all games after their completion.
So how does Synergy Sports Technology work with NBA LIVE? Synergy Sports provides us a direct feed of player scouting DNA and Tendencies. We are then able to take this data and apply it to our game – which dynamically affects player tendencies in-game, as well as modes such as LIVE Seasons and Tonight’s Games.
This information also tells us things that don’t appear in the box score, such as shots off the dribble or if a player was being guarded - which all influence ratings. One of the goals we have for the future of NBA LIVE is to remove subjectivity from player ratings and performance – a true 1:1 representation of each and every player in the league.
So let’s take Kevin Love, for example. In his new home in Cleveland – playing alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving – how he plays will be much different than when he was in Minnesota.
As a result, his tendencies will change as he settles in. With Synergy Sports Technology integration, you will see those adjustments in real time.
This means that when you go to play against the Cavs – you will notice a different play style from Kevin that you will have to account for as the season progresses.
Synergy Sports Technology also drives our BIG Moments and NBA Rewind features. Once a game is finished in real life, we are able to take Synergy Sports data and instantly create LIVE Season challenges based on the stats and highlight plays from that game.
BIG Moments are key plays or stretches of the game such as a player having a huge quarter or a thrilling game winning buzzer beater. You then can play through these quick scenarios with the exact stats, tendencies, and line-ups on a per minute basis.
The key to providing this experience is the fast data delivery from Synergy Sports Technology – so after Damian hits that clutch buzzer-beating shot, you’ll be able to jump on NBA LIVE 15 and see if you can do it yourself.
So as you can see, Synergy Sports Technology is a driving force behind what keeps NBA LIVE 15 connected to the real NBA.
Our server stability ensures that your game will be seamlessly updated – with adjustments being made to player ratings, tendencies and behavior. We are truly #LIVEallSeason long.
