The league with the most points wins. There was also various gameplay improvements including some changes so that each of your line-ups plays differently. One of the best improvements are the set shortcuts during pack openings. This was a change that was brought over from Madden. Release 3.1 was released on December 16th. It fixed various crashes, improving the stability of the game.

We also added support for 4 more languages: Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Turkish. We also added support for a special 6th lineup, which premiered as the Rookie Line-up. Collect a new currency in order to get new players for this lineup who can also be used in your other lineups as well. To support the new 6th line-up, we added an objective system. Release 2 was the first release by the Tiburon team in Orlando, Florida. Release 2.1 was released on October 20th, which fixed some crash that some of our users were seeing.
NBA Live Mobile released world-wide on July 5th, 2016. I was the Supervising Development Director over a team being managed by the EA Red Crow studio in Prince Edward Island, Canada. I continued as the principal Development Director over Madden NFL Mobile while supervising this team during development, soft launch, and then world-wide launch. In June, a team was formed at Tiburon in Orlando, Florida, in order to take over the game once it was live. The Red Crow team did a fabulous job taking the Madden NFL Mobile code base and combining it with the NBA Live 09 Xbox 360 code base, which was ported to iOS & Android. The idea behind the game was to see if we could replicate the success of Madden, but on a game which has more of a global appeal. The Red Crow team took the best features from Madden Mobile and combined it with basketball gameplay. It was an incredible accomplishment and I’m very proud to have had a hand to bringing it to market and now in overseeing the live service.
