what is good everybody it's spill here and welcome back to another NBA 2K Lab video this is day four of swish Miss as we bring you guys the stats to the brand new master badge not so much brand new now we're three months into the cycle but when master was first announced it seemed like it could be a pretty powerful badge as Mike Wang stated that it was basically graced under pressure and mouse in the house rolled into one badge so of course we had to dive in and test it for ourselves if you're new to the channel be sure to subscribe as we're dropping a bunch of badge tests and other videos for about the next week and a half so turn these notes on without further Ado let's get right into it foreign [Music] part of the Masher badge description says that it improves a player's ability to Finish Well around the rim which sounds great but the next part is where it gets a little bit trickier the next part mentions especially over smaller Defenders so you would think that it grants a larger boost when matched up against a shorter Defender but that just doesn't seem to be the case now this is strictly a badge for finishing around the rim so just about any close shot will help activate this badge if the height requirements are satisfied there's different rules when it comes to this badge activating and we've made a simple chart to show you guys when it does and doesn't activate now on the left is the offensive player's height and at the top is the defender's height as you can see this is clearly a badge made for taller players as it will work in more scenarios but the Boost remains about the same despite the different height differences if you want you can pause on this chart to get a longer look but right now we're going to get into the Boost of this badge we tested on a Defender that was four inch shorter and then again on a Defender that was six inches shorter and for the four inch chart you can see a decent boost on bronze of about two and a half percent and once you get to gold we saw about a five percent jump in make percentage which seems to be The Sweet Spot of this badge as it only requires an 82 close shot the jump from no badge to Hall of Fame is about seven to eight percent but you'll need a 95 close shot which makes the Hall of Fame level tough to justify for only a slight Boost from gold looking quickly at the six inch chart the make percentages are of course higher as it will naturally go up when finishing over much shorter Defenders but the Boost in the badge remained about the same if not slightly worse than the 4-inch Defender chart so when the badge description says especially over smaller Defenders it's not exactly accurate when Mouse in the house was introduced last year we didn't recommend it because of the already high make percentage of finishing over smaller Defenders and this year with it being a tier 3 badge for players 611 and up it's still tough to recommend over other tier 3 badges like rise up or fast twitch but if you were to equip this badge though as I mentioned before gold seems to be a good sweet spot to help save a badge point and it can also pair really well with Fearless finisher now that is all we got for this master badge video If this video helped you be sure to leave a like and don't forget you could use code swishments for 20 off NBA 2K lab premium for all of your jump shot needs thank you guys for watching and spill I'll catch you on the next one later
