My response 3 days ago in this post to u/spidersilva09 [https://www.reddit.com/r/MyTeam/comments/nczxrb/spotlight\_sim\_requirements\_if\_we\_need\_full\_5man/](https://www.reddit.com/r/MyTeam/comments/nczxrb/spotlight_sim_requirements_if_we_need_full_5man/) *"****What if it's for an Invincible card? I'm thinking Bill Russell****. He's the biggest legend who 2K has to honour, but the community doesn't rip packs for (Tim Duncan is another.)* *Remember last year that two different spotlight sims gave us GOAT Kobe and GOAT Bird. I'm expecting something similar this round."* So... if any of you would like me to predict the results of tomorrow's Lakers/Warriors game, I am available :)


izmikeco

lol Nice Guess! So...who do you like for tomorrow's lakers/warriors game?


Bouchkilele

I would like them both to lose. Lol. I’m neither a fan of the Warriors nor the Lakers. But moreso the Lakers. I’d love to see them lose two straight and be out of the playoffs altogether.


izmikeco

Haha, it may actually happens. We'll see tomorrow and Friday.


coolguybradford

Lock in John Wall and DM Worthy for Bill Russell??


krayziekmf

prob just lock in the 3 dm's.


Bouchkilele

Gotta be more DM's than they showed. Traditionally there have been east and west but we have seen 3 (Worthy, Butler, Lillard) all from the west and 2 from the same division (Minnesota/Portland)


krayziekmf

their twitter post says 3 dm's, 30 go's and invincible bill russell


Bouchkilele

Technically, that's not "Most Rewards In Spotlight Sim History" as they advertised. Last year's Historic Sim had 30 PD's and 3 opals and then a lock in for GOAT Kobe. So that's the exact same in card rating since they changed the tiers (yet again) this year. Derrick Rose was a 98 PD and the rest were 97's. All of which would be opals this year. Then opal Gilbert, Mullin and Hakeem and Hakeem was needed for GOAT Kobe, just like the 3 DM's will probably be needed for Invincible Russell. So... just hyperbole from 2k.


lebinott

Cards gonna be up at 7 or 730?


Bouchkilele

EST? Normally between 10 and 10:30. Strickland was up pretty early today.


lebinott

I meant tonight, the last sims had the card drop the night before. Who knows at this point


CincoQuallity

I like it. My concern is what the requirements will be.


Kingsnakew

"All games to 21, 30 GO's, 3 DM, and one Invincible Bill Russell." - I love the sound of this.


NormanPowellsBurner

Wait so is it full DM’s? I thought worthy was gonna be the lock in lol


lebinott

Probably gonna need Butler, Dame to unlock worthy (or some variation of that) then need all 3 to beat another team fr Russell


DT-murphy11

Invincible Bill Russell is the final reward. Huge W. https://twitter.com/nba2k_myteam/status/1394786122975244290?s=21


izmikeco

Huge W for 2K. However, 2K can turns this to L when they release more OOP players. Please 2K don't release more OOP players. All normal size players in their position are going to be irrelevant in online mode.


DatAsianKid24

TTO sims is a major W!!


UABBlazers

Until we have more info, no one can really claim this. 2k could easily screw this up.


DatAsianKid24

30 GO, 3 DM and a DM Invincible Bill Russell as the rewards. All games to 21, no info on requirements yet.


UABBlazers

Requirements: Hit 7 three pointers with one player on HoF, use all Series 3 player from the same team, beat a team by 23 points.... Waiting for stuff like this...


Bouchkilele

To add to that point, it's extremely ominous they gave away two emerald players in locker codes today. I'm very worried about those requirements.


DatAsianKid24

Hopefully not man 😭😭


coolguybradford

Team steal requirements incoming


wizkidforever

Oh God


NormanPowellsBurner

Prayer: Pascal Siakam Pascal Siakam Pascal Siakam Pascal Siakam DeAndre Ayton DeAndre Ayton DeAndre Ayton DeAndre Ayton


shingleding900

those are good guesses. you think there are two lockins for jimmy?


NormanPowellsBurner

Haha no it’s just who I want. I think Jimmy and Dame are lock ins for something else


shingleding900

oh shit i just saw they have dame too. yea usually the lockin is a real meta player and dame/jimmy are a little short. jimmy will still be a dog tho.


NormanPowellsBurner

Yeah I’m really excited for Jimmy!


Bouchkilele

"Most Rewards In Spotlight Sim History"? Last year we got 33 in the first one (all the diamonds from the teams) We've already seen tweets of two DM's. Will those be the end or are we getting 30+ DM's? That does not seem likely. But 30+ GO's? Quite possible. Unless they do the bottom-feeder teams like Minnesota first and the rewards are like amethyst and then when you hit the Lakers it's a DM.


wizkidforever

I need that 2KDB update EXPEDITIOUSLY


Bouchkilele

Regular Spotlight Sim last year was 30 diamonds then PD Pascal and Ingram and GO Harden. Historic Spotlight Sim had 30 pink diamonds then GO Arenas, Mullin and Olajuwon. Both of those had 33 cards. The All-Time and Finals had less cards but better ones and rewarded GOAT Bird and Curry and I think all of them together had GOAT Kobe. Point being, the benchmark is 33 rewards that this tweet says they'll top. And it better be quality and not quantity. I don't want no 1,000 MT as a "reward". lol


UABBlazers

Here is your 1 token then.


DT-murphy11

DM Dame aswell tomorrow! https://twitter.com/nba2k_myteam/status/1394778573764968449?s=21


YesGuyIncognito

TT sims with a Jimmy Buckets reward is a big W


DT-murphy11

Holy shit 2k been blessing me with Twolves cards lately, got Ant yesterday and now a free DM wolves Jimmy!


lebinott

If all the games are TT, I'm guessing there will definitely be lineup restrictions, possibly with win requirements as well otherwise it'll just be "easy"


Bouchkilele

My biggest fear is not restrictions by team, it's restrictions by tier. Imagine if they tell you you have to play with Series 3 cards from each team and make 7 3's on HOF difficulty. How do you plan to do that for, say, the Pistons with an Emerald Jerami Grant as the best card?


Shoeless_Jase

Ideally it’s 3 players from a team. Like, “use 3 Lakers in this game and make at least 4 threes as a team.”


krayziekmf

it'll be like trying to evo some of the domination reward cards. Make X amount of 3's with this guy who has a 60 3 pt rating


lebinott

Damn, that's a good point. They're not gonna make it as easy as picking your 3 best guys and just playing the CPU.


krayziekmf

win a 21 point tt match by 15 points lol


UABBlazers

Win a 21 point match...by 23.


Bouchkilele

WTF is a Triple Threat Spotlight Sim??


NormanPowellsBurner

I was just thinking about a DM Jimmy!!! Is it gonna be TTO Spotlights??


wizkidforever

Triple Threat spotlight sim. Thank God


Bouchkilele

I've never lost a Triple Threat challenge vs. the CPU so I am now wondering what the hell they're gonna do to make this challenging. Not just wondering... but worrying as well. 3 from each team?


SEMM18

SPOTLIGHT SIMS TOMORROW, THIS IS NOT A DRILL


NormanPowellsBurner

When people take 3 mins in settings you know your getting the W 95% of the time 😂😂


YesGuyIncognito

Man how is the token market closed again and there's still no spotlights. Jesus 2k why just let it rot like this. There's literally nothing to do.


xUNIFIx

Bey is legit OP once you add hzh. Been running him as my big in tto It’s really really fun Only recommended if you’re a baller though, you gotta put in some work to make him sing but god, I’m even on current where he has steady and I’m just floored.


shingleding900

best release all year 🥰🥰couldnt be happier as a stons fan


Fantastic_Tutor_9031

bro he's so good


RealGertle627

His release is goated


NormanPowellsBurner

Should I sell DeMar soon? He’s my fav player OAT but I wanna maximize mt from and don’t mind buying later


krayziekmf

if he's your fav player you should just use him as this game is going to be dead in a few months anyway


NormanPowellsBurner

True true just thinking about MT but I’ll have other ways to make it


lebinott

I noticed earlier he was around 120-125k, I wonder if it was just a few or if he's already dropping. If you want the MT sell now because he'll only drop in price, there are more and more SG/SF being released, I would imagine it's causing his price to drop


MagnumTAreddit

Just got a HOF Clamps from my level 39 reward, should I hold onto it or put it on ruby Fultz for Limited and TTOffline purposes (already gave him a speed Grinch and two extra HOFs)? I already have it on Bol Bol and don’t plan on trying to flip anyone for a profit.


RevBsnizz

I also think that Amy or Diamond is going to be the new base for limited soon. They don’t even release Ruby’s in packs anymore.


MagnumTAreddit

True that’s a good point. I think Thad Young was the last apart from series 3 stuff.


bobbydigital_ftw

I got one from the token market and holding. I feel like 2K is going to drop a card that is a HOF Clamps away from being OP like Bol Bol.


MagnumTAreddit

That’s a good point and the main reason I’m leaning toward that now.


Bouchkilele

So I'm doing the John Wall challenges and just destroyed the first HOF lineup (Game 3) by 38 points. I used this team, but I am getting very concerned about Game 6 that requires 12 3-pointers. Most of my points on HOF difficulty come from fast breaks and an iso at the top of the arc with the Pass/Screen Away called. [https://2kdb.net/lineups/60a412da5eb86f5850c60acd](https://2kdb.net/lineups/60a412da5eb86f5850c60acd) Although I did hit four 3's in this one without calling plays for them. I was up by enough that I could risk the miss, but getting 12 in a game is gonna be a tough ask. With that in mind I picked up D'Antoni for the boosts and also gave Giannis a 3 point shoe because I've noticed that he fades out to the arc once Smith/Carter/Penny come in off the iso. Is there any other player I should ensure I have on my team for that game? I could probably throw 200k behind whichever guy that is. 8 of those guys on my team are free so don't mind spending for a shiny new Dark Matter (wait... does dark matter "shine"?) Thanks!


RealGertle627

I was worried about that, too, cuz i hardly ever shoot on HoF. But just find someone whose release you like, have them call for a screen, and wait until the defender goes under and you're wide open. I say focus on that first, and then you can make up whatever deficit you may be down


Bouchkilele

That was one of the games when you hold your breath after at the loading screen because you're praying the app doesn't crash and you're also praying you see the reward and it didn't glitch. Whew! I was 7-29 in the first half but 5-9 in the 3rd and won comfortably. My first 36 points were the twelve 3's. JR Smith had 5, Rudy Gay saved me with 4, Danny Ferry had 2 and I got 1 from Bailey Howell. That game was stress though. Because on top of trying to make sure you get the dozen 3's, you also have to play hard frickin' defense to make sure they don't get too much of a buffer by scoring off every miss. Especially since the rebound off a missed 3 sent them off to the races. I won by 10. The moment I got the 3's I didn't attempt a single one again.


MagnumTAreddit

You should be fine. I used TMac and mostly sprinted the floor, stopped and fired and did it comfortably, especially once you’re in a rhythm and/or have sharp shooting takeover it gets easier than it seems. Don’t be afraid to restart if you don’t make two or three out the gate though.


Bouchkilele

That's exactly what I did. Restarted when I was 1 of 6. In the rematch I was down 17-9 after 1 but had hit three 3's. I decided to ride it out and won comfortably.


RoughNoob

Your lineup look more than enough to this game. Most of the time if you 5 out and drive to the rim with pg, cpu come to help and leave your guys on the corners wide open, just choose one you more comfortable with and it's easy 3s. Also you can spend some possessions to get sharp takeover on anyone to make it even more easier. I was scared of this game too but it's not as hard as it look. Good luck!


MoeFunkz

Hey guys who 3 hunt. Do you use all stick or stick down and trigger or only button? Do you find different players shoot better with different settings? I see a lot of guys use the meter too I recently turned it off and in liking it. If you use a guy a lot and know his release you really should try it at least


EggWiz

button only, meter off. it helps a ton & I don’t think you really even need to know the release all that well. it helps for sure but the cards are good enough now with very quick releases that you can be consistent with guesses lol


ChakaNumber2

For offline play, is any DM good enough? Currently running: Simmons, Demar, Thon, Giannis, Wilt. Thinking of going to: Ja, Ant, Isaac, Giannis, Wilt. Obviously first squad is better but for offline would it really be noticeable? Thanks!


Xeerohour

The old adage "any player is good offline" is generally true. As long as you can stay in front of the CPU on D and green your shots, you can run pretty much anyone. That second team is really good at driving and dunking. I might make sure you keep one player that you can green easily with, because some of the HOF games require you to make X 3ps.


ChakaNumber2

I thought so but wanted to check thank you! Also that's very true about win requirements. I will have to keep some shooters as subs.


TheKidBH

Does Ben Simmons still get sharp take with speed or defensive grinches with d’antoni as coach?


Aka391

With speed I’m pretty sure mine slasher with D’antoni


Stonerjoe68

I never buy packs and I’m getting an enshrined pack deluxe pack because Kobe. Literally using my entire MT for it Edit: Amy Larry Bird. Gross


Shoeless_Jase

2k letting their game stagnate in May for the billionth straight year. Just drop the f*cking SIMs already...


coolguybradford

I don’t even think spotlights will save the mode tbh. When gameplay is as bad as it is, you can put all the pretty paint on it but it’s still bad. I thought adding stronger cards would make the gameplay less-bad because it would even out all the imbalances but 99 cards plus OP animations made everything worse


EggWiz

I’m with ya. I have a lot more fun when all the cards aren’t goated. I got next gen a few weeks ago, came back to MyTeam for a few days & then hung it back up. A few next gen PNO games a week is all I got in me 😂


RevBsnizz

Yeah. I’m real bored. Got MLB the Show last night and haven’t touched 2k today.


Darkperson6

Another challenge event, yet i have 0 challenges to do. You know online content has been bad when even i have done every challenge available.


RollaOnTheRiver

Heyyyyyy! I just evolved Russell Westbrook to DM. I wanted to thank everyone for your tips, tricks, lineup advice, XP advice, encouragement etc. Not only for this particular challenge, but for the entire season. Y'all the real GOATs here. Thank you, it's much appreciated.


Zebraniac

Spotlights need to come soon. everyone is bored in myteam rn. Every day they wait the hype dies even more. Last time was really cool because it was unexpected. This time its expected so people will just get more and more impatient.


spacemon55

I'm pretty sure they'll coincide with the start of the playoffs this weekend


NormanPowellsBurner

I went back to roster updates and they appeared on Db tues night


Spooken_Truth

Hmm your right hopefully tonight we see the cards and update tomorrow 😪


Bouchkilele

The Triple Threat in Spotlight Challenges count as "Challenge" and not "Triple Threat" right? Just don't wanna waste my time getting the 7 3's with Brandon Roy in a Spotlight Sim TT challenge.


r-foilfence

Yes challenge tt games do not count as TTOff


derekjabari

Only 8 Invincible Kobes on the auction house with the latest one currently at 5 million with 1 hr left I thought I had severe overpay paying 2.7 or 3 million on Friday but it looks like his price is only going to go up as he becomes more rare.


Intelligent_Food_246

It's crazy, I wish I had bought on Fri original clusters. I've been priced out of the card since then - my team is even called Frobe and yet I don't have the card in my lineup lol.


xUNIFIx

I’ve only ever seen one on switch There are 0 of any invincible cards up right now


lebinott

I know we're always gonna get some weak free content to even out with the good stuff like Luka this past weekend, but this is really weak this late into the game. The sims better be fire


[deleted]

[удалено]


marnjuana

Just played the sweatiest unlimited game of my life. My opponent has all 3 invincible cards, but thankfully the algo was on my side and DRob came in the clutch


DFSxBigDoeDoe

Reward is PD Rod Strickland for today’s XP Agenda. All challenges worth 400 XP. Score 37 points with Wizards Point Guards over multiple TT or TTO games. Get 20 assists with Trail Blazers Point Guards over multiple games. Make 7 3-pointers with Trail Blazers Shooting Guards in a single Challenge game.


DirkSaves41

Nice! This will be easy.


tbquis

We Need a Kwame Brown Card .


NormanPowellsBurner

Yes


NormanPowellsBurner

Saddiq Bey is cash probably not worth the 40k but I’ll definitely pick him up again later


Xeerohour

He greens super well. I just didn't like really anything else about him lol


Bouchkilele

Best thing about that free Rod Strickland card is there was a huge gap between an affordable PG (Geoff Petrie for 3k) and a good one (Anfernee Simons for 10k or Dame for 20k) on the Trailblazers.


DirkSaves41

I agree! And the challenges are quick.


Bouchkilele

Where'd that Rod Strickland reward PD come from out of the blue? Got to be a free card for some challenges (maybe Kyrie-related) because they're not gonna be putting a PD on Triple Threat boards at this stage of the game.


Darkperson6

I want to buy Dr.J but i know as soon as i do it, spotlight sims will drop and the market is gonna drop even more.


Shantier

They will propably drop friday because 2k extended the Enshrined packs to monday


MIA_Demon

Really hoping they drop tonight, we're almost halfway through this season already


lebinott

Do the sims normally drop during the day at the regular time or at night? I can't remember what they did last year and I wasn't around for this year's earlier sim drops


MIA_Demon

Last year was at normal content times, I believe the all star one was at like 7pm though


lebinott

Oh ok, I'm hoping they drop today, I spent like 100k last night on a ton of cards to fill out my lineups for the usual lineup restrictions lol


MIA_Demon

Really hoping these ones have no restrictions like the later spotlight sims last year. I find it so pointless to build a team just to have to use 10 hornets players or whatever


Bouchkilele

I think they will. I can’t imagine they’re just gonna let everyone run in there with a 13 man DM lineup and destroy the content for great rewards


MIA_Demon

They did it last year, but you were playing lineups of the best available cards for each team on superstar so it wasn't a cakewalk


Bouchkilele

I'm wondering if it's going to be 20 games against the 20 teams in play-in/playoffs. It's not lost on me that the 4 new cards we got yesterday were all guys from the remaining 10 teams (New Orleans, Minnesota, Detroit) They may be creating high level versions of the cards for the 20 teams, which could be the reason for the delay. Or they may be waiting to eliminate 4 after the play-in is completed.


MIA_Demon

Best guess is they're waiting for the play-in tournament to finish since it didn't drop today, but man they're leaving it late when these spotlights were announced as part of this seasons content


lebinott

That would definitely be ideal


MoeFunkz

Grabbed ray Allen with 54 hofs for 170.. over payed maybe but he's so money. Hmm


Hufftwoseven-

Anyone know how much DM Ant Man is going for?


Fantastic_Tutor_9031

around 150 last night on xbox


Hufftwoseven-

Not bad, gotta get him for my fav young players line up.


Fantastic_Tutor_9031

yup gonna pick him up as well. one of my fav young guys


bobbydigital_ftw

Are Radio T-Mac and Giannis still gonna be viable in the endgame? Super cheap right now and they would be bench players for me.


RevBsnizz

I sold DM wilt because Giannis was better for me.


lebinott

I don't see why they couldn't be end game, add golf flex and deadeye to Giannis with a coach and shoe boost and his stats are high across the board. His next card will have higher stats and either SF or PG eligibility and hof shooting badges abut he'll be extremely expensive, just keep that in mind


Hufftwoseven-

How much is super cheap?


bobbydigital_ftw

This morning I saw a Giannis at 100k BIN with some 110 BIDS. T-Mac was around 150k


Hufftwoseven-

I would 100% be on those if I didn’t absolutely hate the card art 😂 I’ll probably wait until the next major market crash and then go crazy spending


Darkperson6

With T-Mac you could argue, now that most jumpers are on very quick, that he is not all that special on offense anymore. But imo Giannis is already endgame. Perfect on defense and offensively you dont need hof range when he mostly catches and shoots. No point for an upgrade


Bouchkilele

I sniped that Giannis yesterday and trying to determine what badges to put on him. I'm not that familiar with the badges to know the OP ones other than Clamps/Range Extender/Intimidator (on current gen) and I don't have those at HOF anyway. But Giannis did prompt me to buy D'Antoni and spend on a diamond shoe for the first time since I have the game 3 weeks now.


Darkperson6

The only must have badge for giannis is flexible. The rest that he is missing are okay. They will not make a difference in the long run the way they function.


Bouchkilele

I have none of those badges and didn’t know they’re op. Should I stock up? Are there other players who it’s a must to put on?


Darkperson6

Also i forgot to mention Showtime because it boosts takeover for your teammates when you score with a flashy dunk or an and1. Heart crusher decreases the takeover meter of all the opponents on blocks/steals and chase down artist since it makes everyone 2016 game 7 lebron.


Bouchkilele

>chase down artist I would not have thought so. It was one of the least desirable badges in 2K19. So thanks for this!


Darkperson6

Lets just say that this year its easier to get a poster rather that dunk while the opponent is behind you just because of this badge.


Darkperson6

Flexible release is a top 5 badge in the game this year because it boosts the make% of cards a lot (+9% on gold, +10% on hof for slightly early/late releases). Basically just add it to the list that you mentioned of must have badges on cards.


spacemon55

They'd hold their own I'd say, but I'm not sure it's worth buying them as they will only get cheaper. I run rewards players for my bench with the exception of Hero MJ but I have him locked in.


hodg69

just started the game, what’s the best triple threat lineup i can get for 10-15k?


Shoeless_Jase

Amy Bagley, Diamond Mobley, Amy Vassell


nodontdothat99

Westbrook locker code is still active for 2.5 hours, go get it! Then search how to do his triple doubles.


spacemon55

Offline or online?


Bouchkilele

Probably a silly question but I'll ask anyway... there's no way to get that Phil Jackson now right? I missed that season and it looks like the cards to complete it aren't available on auction and were reward cards.


spacemon55

Only if they re-release the freebies, maybe they'll add them to the token market


KDotIsBae

Some of them are actionable but yeah, most of the low tier ones were agendas from season 5


VeryConfusingReplies

I just can’t win anymore. I can’t even score, people stick like hot glue up and down the court and I can’t get any space or make any passes. But then people also just effortlessly zoom by my players without even really doing anything. Anyone have any tips for scoring / controlling my players on defense?


Shoeless_Jase

My guess is that you’re getting off balled and your opponents are setting D on smother/ deny. The best tool against that is aggressively running pick and roll/pop. Call screens on every possession. If they are off balling, the CPU will get caught in the screens, giving you some open lanes and jumpers. On defense, I set to tight / tight, go over on all screens and catch hedge. Then I on ball about half the time, sliding in front of the opponent and contesting hands up (right stick up) versus jumping on shots. I off ball to reset a CPU defender who is roaming (or to intercept a pass I anticipate). Hope some of this helps.


DasDGM

Right there with you. At 33% wins rn. My lowest since s1 when I picked up MyTeam for the first time. It’s exactly like you describe. Defenders are stuck on my players and literally pushing them off their runs and cuts. Meanwhile my defenders give up dunks every possession. I think it might be that only the really good players are left online. The rest of the players my level either dropped the game or are staying of mtu.


VeryConfusingReplies

That’s exactly it. If someone creates any space, they either walk it in for a free dunk or green a three, and the game physically doesn’t let me move where I want to. Like i’ll try to close out and my player just stands there and lets them shoot. But then if I have space, their defender zooms towards me and clamps on to me, so I can’t shoot or dribble at all. I really don’t get it. And it also seems like my picks don’t even exist, while the other team’s picks kill my players and create a wide open shot every time.


Hufftwoseven-

I think I’m gunna give up on blocks with Kostas, just not worth it he’s really bad lol


[deleted]

[удалено]


Hufftwoseven-

I eventually got like 3 in one game going up against Bledsoe but yeah I’ll stick to it because I wanna keep the Greek brother anyways lol I just get frustrated when I can’t easily complete an XP challenge, a bit childish I know lmao


complex_target

Same here. I got 2 in the first game, then 0 in the next 3. Haven't gone back to him yet lol. Same with David Wesley and his 4 rebounds in 6 games...


Hufftwoseven-

Bruh I ran Wesley when I was doing Bamba rebounds and of course he got 4 rebounds in one game 😂


lebinott

Sniped a pair of defensive Grinches, is Bol Bol noticeably better with them on? I don't need the MT


Hufftwoseven-

Any grinches help Bol Bol but I think Speed ones might be worth it the most, his length would make any defensive stats good.


KingWilson223

Dr J or Ray on Next Gen?


brucjobe

Tough. They both offer advantages over the other. For what it’s worth, I have both and I use Allen over Dr J. Shooting guards can get away with being a little shorter as opposed to a short point guard. Allen carried me all weekend.


Spooken_Truth

Ray


KingWilson223

Yeah I’ve heard that he’s a demon on next Gen was going to make sure


MoeFunkz

He's real good on current too I don't care what ppl say I'm a sniper with him


KingWilson223

Is Ben worth the 300k more than Magic??


brucjobe

Nope. I think Magic is better than Ben. It’s at at least debatable, so that would lean to me saying no way Ben is worth that much over Magic.


IbSunPraisin

I think Ben has a way smoother release, whether that's worth 300K extra is debatable


CmDunk23

I was shocked how cheap Magic is. Last night I checked him price and he was at 125k with 3 minutes left.


KingWilson223

Yeah i took a 2 week break off and just got back into it. I needed 2 PGs and had 600k so i was like there’s no way Ben is worth that much more so i got Magic and Grant


RevBsnizz

I bought Magic on a Whim (got a deal at the time) but just sold him because Grant feels just as good to me.


brucjobe

Yep those are my two. Figured I’d get out of the Ben market for two reasons, 1. Grant is only a little less better than Simmons, and I think Magic is better. 2. We are getting a PG Giannis, Luka or LeBron any week now, which will cut the value of Simmons in half likely.


CrimsonThi9hs

Definitely not imo


MiffedPond829

Anyone else thinking about selling everything and just using rewards/budget for now? I don't want to lose value on everything reeeee


bobbydigital_ftw

I tried that earlier in the game, but the matchmaking in MTU is so wide that you'll play some GO/DM teams super close, but end up losing because their cards are simply better with superior tendencies. It's probably even worse this time of the game. I'd rather lose to a better player and not because my cards sold me.


duggybucketsYTYT

Really wish they would have some type of limited mode during the week. Never really play unlimited so I’m basically left with TTO and then offline stuff


brucjobe

Agreed. We need this next year. I enjoy building lineups and it would be cool to have a mode during the week where, for instance, you can only use 1 DM, 1 Opal, 1 PD, 1 D, 1 Amy, and rest rubies.

Yes I'll also so a 5v5 team up mode in Myteam. I've heard Madden has a similar mode when I've suggested it before. Before they changed the matchmaking I won 70%/80% of my unlimited games, but now I'm around the 50/50 mark. But like most people I spend more time doing agenda stuff rather than playing online.

I have 14 of the 16 PD rewards for the All-Star Spotlight Sim, so I'm almost through, I'd say about 90%... and just encountered the most annoying game thus far. 91-93 All-Stars Game 1. Yes... Game ONE. On Pro difficulty. The stupid requirements to win were to get 8 rebounds with one player. Now the CPU doesn't miss, so defensive rebounds are rare. I could score 50 with my eyes closed on Pro difficulty so I don't miss either. So no offensive rebounds. So I find myself beginning of fourth, up 19 then realise that the center, and the one with the most rebounds (GO Giannis... thank you pack drop today for that snipe) has only 4 rebounds. So I take JR Smith out and put in bronze Cameron Payne. I start to do pick and rolls and shoot bad 3's with Payne. No luck. Even though Giannis is close to the basket and Ewing is behind him, the CPU Ewing gets every board... because the CPU cheats and of course he does! Meanwhile while I'll doing my brickfest trying to get rebounds, they're narrowing the deficit and it's now a minute left and I'm up 6. I now have to manipulate to get us to OT, so I can get the 3 extra rebounds (Giannis picked up only 1 in the fourth.) I finally get us to OT and he still doesn't get the rebounds. Had to go THREE friggin overtimes to get the 8 rebounds Giannis needed. And I even resorted to some shenanigans at the end of 2OT, since I was up 3 and knew the CPU may miss a 3. I stood in the lane to get the tech for defensive 3 seconds to get the deficit to 2 so they could score and send to a next overtime. But Christ... that game was taxing. If that was Superstar or HOF difficulty I would have had the rebounds by the 3rd quarter... The irony of course is that the same effing useless Ewing that kept taking my rebounds is the reward at the end of this chain. I like the Knicks but won't even use the goddamn PD Ewing, since his cards are so bad!

Easiest way I've found to get rebounds in 5v5 is to have your center as the best rebounder, helps if he's really tall. Then run two bronzes at PF and SF, and run a two three zone. CPU will miss enough so just offball with your center and grab those boards.

hahaha I love this read. I got through maybe 8 or so of the All-Star Sims before I lost motivation after grabbing the rewards I wanted

2K answered my prayers/saw my poll and released a DM Anthony Edwards!!!


TunaBoy3000

This Anthony edwards card just seems clunky to me, anyone else feel the same?


hodg69

just started my team, played last year a lot so know the ins and outs of it but what’s different this year and how should i start to gather mt


FlexFantasyTE

You’ve started at a point where every card has the same signature animations so the only difference for the most point are the stats, badges, and height. 2k21 is nothing but curry slides, 5 out, and full court press sweats at the competitive level. Not a true basketball sim, but very much a game. Like other games, it’s based on skill *of the game* , not your actual basketball IQ or doing the correct thing. Offline is still enjoyable because it resembles actual basketball.

People are so damn salty about this game lol it's just a game, quit spending money on packs.


MIA_Demon

Nothing he said was wrong, salty, or related to packs


FlexFantasyTE

Literally nothing about what I said had to do with buying/opening packs.


hodg69

will probably only play against my mates and none of us are too good so should be better, what the best way to gain mt to start?


FlexFantasyTE

You could try the snipe/flipping route but you’ll get a lot of MT just from basic offline modes like domination, sims, triple threat, etc. if you’re just playing with your mates to have some fun you’ll enjoy it a lot.


RealGertle627

Anyone else have this Bey release? It might be the easiest for me to green all year


NormanPowellsBurner

No one on very quick but Eddie Jones and J Rich updated cards will have it


Bouchkilele

>updated cards Wait. What? Updated how? When?


NormanPowellsBurner

krayziekmf

Got a 2k email with a code for a mystery pack and 5 whole tokens lol 9,400 vc value!! edit: the pack is just a promo pack and gave me a diamond promo kevin martin who only has 5 hof badges lol


NormanPowellsBurner

That Jaden McDaniels is insanely fun to use. Can’t wait for Opal/DM Pascal Siakam


LordPringus

Wonder why there isn’t a Craig Ehlo or Mark Price (auctionable Mark Price)...


Bouchkilele

Gotta say one thing that makes me rage HARD at this game is the total inequality in the way that the CPU plays his lesser players vs. your better players. If I am on-balling, there are currently 9 players on the court the CPU is controlling. So when my GO and DM players who I am not controlling get constantly hung up on screens and beaten on back-door cuts etc. by diamonds and amethysts on the CPU team, it just reeks of contempt for us, the consumers. To put it another way - If the team I am trotting out there was pitted against the team the CPU is using, with the CPU controlling both teams, based on the tiers of my cards vs. the CPU's, my team should win by 50 or more.

Pulled a Vogel out of a coach pack, already use Malone. Should I sell Malone or Vogel?
