I figured out how to use the same plays for your starters/bench on next gen
I know I’m not the first person to discover it, but i just stumbled on it and i know for a lot of us out there we didn’t know how to do it and this was a big issue...but i found a work around!
So do your regular set plays, etc etc in the pause menu offensive settings in the beginning of the game. After tip off, when your opponent calls a time out go back into the offensive settings in the pause menu and go to set bench players plays....and you’ll see all the highlighted plays for your starters are now available for your bench! It seems to be in reverse where you can only change your offensive settings in the pause menu when your OPPONENT calls a time out...
Sucks that you gotta waste a couple of pauses, but at least you get to use your favorite plays for both your starters and your bench on next gen. Hope this helps fellas!
