FYI, new lounge has been started


Bouchkilele

**"Out of these 6 challengers, the top scoring players during this period will earn the entire community a guaranteed player locker code, which will include Galaxy Opals or a Dark Matter player."** So... if I am using Donovan Mitchell and Tatum is the top scorer during the period, I still get the locker code, so I'm confused as to what the incentive is.


Bouchkilele

Season is 6 weeks. Looks like it's the last season.


Aka391

Man drazen for unlimited? We haven’t gotten a good reward all year really


RevBsnizz

Yeah. McHale was the last good one. And maybe Cedric Maxwell.


Aka391

Yeah McHale was good when he came out and Cedric was alright. The only way I’d use this drazen is if they give him the best dribble sigs and give him base 98 with pg eligibility


RevBsnizz

Yeah. Him and Larry Johnson have me NO interest in unlimited. Which is usually my favorite mode. Didn’t even really try on the GO tier on either of them.


bobbydigital_ftw

I don't mind it. Gives the sweatiest of sweats less incentive to grind, and I'll have a better time in MTU.


Aka391

I guess that’s one way to look at it. I just feel like with unlimited being the most difficult grind, the reward should actually be a good player


lebinott

Wow, tons of free content this season, possibly more levels or rewards after level 40?


RevBsnizz

I wouldn’t bank on it.


beefynachogriller6

2k pls give luka HOF blinders


NormanPowellsBurner

Omg it’s Luka


spacemon55

What is? Source? Oh I see, well that's definitely gonna be worth the grind to level 40


RollaOnTheRiver

http://2kgam.es/3uMkij1


NormanPowellsBurner

Level 40 and dev blog


coolguybradford

Looks like it’s official, Invincible ** Michael Finley as the level 40


jonsib84

How do you cancel a cut to basket? Trying to do the 8 rebounds. Lillard just passes to worthy though 😂


mrcplmrs

Hold triangle then double click r1


ireallyheartreddit

I hold triangle then R1


Rosserino

Like, cutting by holding triangle? I think the only way is to fake pass (triangle+circle).


jonsib84

Yeah holding triangle. Thanks


JJS4

Press B after holding Y


spacemon55

Ok I'm going out on a limb here and making a guess that we are gonna have a 1v1 mode in next season.


Fantastic_Tutor_9031

came here to say this. definitely feels like it.


bobbydigital_ftw

That actually sounds pretty cool. I gotta imagine that's gonna be pretty easy if we can use whatever card we want, and could theoretically make you better by forcing you to onball.


NormanPowellsBurner

Invincible Dirk or Luka level 40! More likely Dirk


Bouchkilele

It'll be Dirk. He doesn't sell packs and we haven't had a big since Admiral in Season 5.


beefynachogriller6

Praying that it’s not dirk but i doubt they give us Luka for free


lebinott

How do you know?


NormanPowellsBurner

They tweeted a guess who and the bottom of the card art is horses


lebinott

Lol how does that equate to Mavs players?


DT-murphy11

The blue strip at the end represents Mavs, all the invincible cards have the same strip at the bottom of the card relative to the team they played for. Hardens got a red one, Kobe purple, KG blue and Timmy grey


OneThousandGecs

A Maverick is a horse


NormanPowellsBurner

Mavs logo is a horse and you can see a hint of blue


lebinott

L, I'm so slow today lol


Bouchkilele

LOL. I just said the same thing. Let me delete my post since you were here first.


Bouchkilele

Dear 2K, only one player in the Western Conference is undefeated in the 2021 playoffs (in the East, the whole Milwaukee roster is). He's also my favourite player on my favourite team and unfortunately I did not have your game in March when you gave everyone his free opal. So hook me up, please. Begging you. 98 GO? 99 DM? Anything?


spacemon55

The card isn't as good as the real thing unfortunately. I did make a fortune selling Adidas shoes when he dropped though.


lebinott

Who's that? I wasn't around in March too


Bouchkilele

LOL. Who indeed? It's like Mystery Domination. The clues are all there. He's the only undefeated player in the Western Conference playoffs. His team lost their first game without him and won four straight once he played.


lebinott

Mystery dom + glitched reality vibes. So cryptic haha


Zebraniac

He's talking about D Mitchell


DT-murphy11

Wonder what this means…. https://twitter.com/nba2k_myteam/status/1400497658326700036?s=21


Bouchkilele

So those are the same 6 symbols on the tweet yesterday (except for Spida's which they obviously adjusted) and logic would dictate one per division, except there are two Atlantic (Philly/Boston) and no Southeast, so my first instinct was that these are 6 of 30 cards, except the icons behind Simmons and Tatum aren't the same, so each icon doesn't represent a division. Then I thought it was a trip through those specific teams, because there are Lakers/Celtics/76ers in there which are legendary, have multiple championships and a host of all-time greats to play against. Except Zion disproves that. There aren't any legendary Pelicans. Hell, there are hardly any legendary Pelican cards in the damn game! So yeah, I'm stumped.


lebinott

This plus the battleground tweet showing a TT court, watch it be tripe threat dom and you have to use these cards in some way.


riverhk

Interesting.... Heat check style playoff cards? Maybe they upgrade the further they get in the playoffs. Or maybe it's just evo filler for XP challenges. My guess would be the ladder


Bouchkilele

Can't be evo cards. No one in their right mind is going to evo Dame when they already have a free DM of him. It's more likely they're gonna force us to use those amethyst cards in TT type challenges against 3 of the most unfair DM beasts they've released. Probably Invincible cards on HOF.


bobbydigital_ftw

TBH, I wouldn't be mad at playoff bracket with all the playoff teams if that's the new Domination.


Bouchkilele

Can't be playoff-related. Zion didn't come close to the playoffs this year.


bobbydigital_ftw

Ah, good catch.


xUNIFIx

I love how it says “your challenger awaits” but there’s like 6 dudes pictured. “These are your challenger” “Defeat all 6 playoff challenger”


izmikeco

maybe we can only pick 1 of them like starter pack? lol


J-Rod140

Evos through season long agendas maybe? I hope that’s not it since all of them have good cards already.


bobbydigital_ftw

Yeah, that's what's kinda crazy to me. Even the recent PDs of Ben and Zion are pretty good, so I'm not too excited to grind an evo at this point in the game. Unless they evo into Invincible cards which would be a very 2K thing to do.


Bouchkilele

Can't wait until tomorrow. Have 1 Bailey Howell, 2 Larry Kenons and 6 Gerald Wilkins waiting on the Exchange, and always so weary to open earned pack rewards because I'm so afraid I'll open one of the DM's by accident. I have a contract pack as the first thing on the packs screen just as a buffer in case I press "x" too quickly when going there. Also, thanks to Mystery Packs weekend and Radioactive rewards from the vault, My Auctions contains OO of 2 Joe Ingles, 2 Jared Sullinger, 2 Jason Richardson, 6 Jarrett Jack, 1 RJ Hampton, 3 Juan Hernangomez, 6 Bryon Russell, 6 Killian Hayes, 4 Kyle Anderson and 2 Yuta Tabuse. Those cards are burning my eyes and I need to know whether they're eligible for exchange or if I should just quick sell the lot of them!


NormanPowellsBurner

r/gamingleaksandrumours says Dirk is the legend edition athlete


Darkperson6

Everyone wants to be like Tydebo or Splash, I want to be like the CPU controlling Invincible Tim Duncan.


Bouchkilele

>I want to be like the CPU controlling Invincible Tim Duncan. I want to be like the CPU controlling literally anybody in Mystery Domination on HOF. Those 2k fuckers have ruby Dragic and Rondo out here beating my DM point guards.


BerryMcockner

Idk what’s dropping tomorrow, but it’s gonna be crazy


DFSxBigDoeDoe

No new XP to report. Hope you guys are having a good day!


Bouchkilele

Seems to me 2K should be able to tell how many of their consumers got Bill Russell on each gen and nerf it accordingly. For other challenges/dominations etc., you can always get better cards and attempt it later, but here, you are given the 3 cards you need, and there is no help coming (or to quote Rick Pitino - "Larry Bird isn't walking through that door") So this is it. You either are able to get Russell now or you won't ever. And I think they need to examine the difficulty of that, especially on Current Gen.


Erikk1138

Not arguing with the difficulty of some of these challenges; they are for sure crazy, but I'm not sure what you mean by "get Russell now or you won't ever." Spotlights usually stick around past the season and are available permanently.


UABBlazers

The biggest issue is 2k has no idea how to program decent AI and may not employ anyone who has played or seen a game of basketball. Their solution is simply to raise the percentage of made shots.


spacemon55

The double double is just such a crazy requirement in a game to 21


Iloveagooddump

I’ll never get 8 rebounds with Worthy, it’s just too high of difficulty on current gen for me. I got 6 once and lost by 10.


Bouchkilele

So what time would we expect Season 8 Courtside Report? It's Bouchkibirthday, and all I want is some fire prizes to aim at from tomorrow (and for Phoenix to win... or more accurately... Lakers to lose... later)


spacemon55

Happy birthday my friend


complex_target

Happy birthday! Hoping for the Lakers to lose! "It's because of the play in game we had to play" I can already hear it...lol


NormanPowellsBurner

Happy bday fam hope the lakers lose as a nice present for you too! I wanna see lakers twitter in shambles 😭😂


RealGertle627

Happy bday my dude!


Bouchkilele

Thanks man. As a Utah fan I was hoping they would close out the Grizzlies to ring in my birthday but the game finished at 2 minutes to midnight EST. lol


Shoeless_Jase

Happy BDay! Usually the blog drops at 3 pm eastern US time.


DirkSaves41

Will we get a courtside report blog today? They seem to come out the day before the next season launches.


doublefry95

We should... I don't remember what time they usually come out though. I also wonder if 2k is busy editing out the 'Black Sun' logo they tweeted out yesterday and took down after people pointed out the symbol's ties to Nazis. If those emblems they tweeted out were going to play a big part in the next season, I imagine it could be a pretty busy day for them.


bobbydigital_ftw

I wish they'd put one out now so I'd have something to read at work.


doublefry95

Same. And if I'm right about things being delayed because of the issue with the emblems they tweeted yesterday that doesn't make much sense. Theoretically, they should have had most, if not all, of the courtside report written already, and it doesn't usually include pictures so fixing graphics shouldn't delay the report.


Bouchkilele

>and it doesn't usually include pictures so fixing graphics shouldn't delay the report. Unless the PR department is writing apology after apology and rephrasing every word so the controversy doesn't escalate. That could delay any communication coming out before this emergency bandage.


doublefry95

That's a good point. This whole thing seems dumb to me though, it looks like an honest mistake, and they took it down pretty quickly. Can't we just move on?


DirkSaves41

Oh that’s true. Thanks.


MisterSparkle89

I was seriously just about to make a post about the vault being broken since I haven't gotten anyone since Byron Beck. Played a couple games today and got DM Larry Kenon. 🙏 Any shoe recommendations? Currently running D'Antoni as coach and leaning towards the brown jordan XI's.


Bouchkilele

I wouldn't even bother shoe'ing him. He can't shoot, so he's barely usable, beyond defense, but with the amount of other free cards available, he may have difficulty cracking your lineup. I only use 3 auctionable cards (Penny/KAJ/Giannis - all opals) and Kenon may be about 5th on my depth chart for both SF and PF. They throw free DM's at us, but that doesn't mean Mikan/Kenon/Wilkins/Nash are anything really special. Bailey Howell, on the other hand... he's a beast.


poizon_elff

I've got the red and black jordans on him. Ups 3 pt and makes rebounding even more beastly.


J-Rod140

I'll probably throw some Sky Dreamers on him when they come back down in price.


ireallyheartreddit

Can KPJ curry slide? Asking for a friend


NormanPowellsBurner

Yes


ireallyheartreddit

Does anyone have a list of how to stop all the cheese this year? Getting beat my rim runners and curry slide


Iloveagooddump

I just stand still and let the curry sliders do their thing, they usually slide right back into me on their shot. The speed glitching all the way up the court is absurd though, I don’t know how to stop it.


ireallyheartreddit

Just started and I haven’t ran into speed glitching yet. What is it?


Iloveagooddump

You can do some crossovers then hit turbo at the right time and your player blasts off, you can’t keep up they’re so fast


ireallyheartreddit

When does season 8 start?


Shantier

Friday


ireallyheartreddit

How long are the seasons? Do prices of cards go down when a new one starts?


RevBsnizz

Prices of almost every card will go down. PG Giannis will probably stay up though.


ireallyheartreddit

I was hoping if I get Kareem or magic those would stay up too


RevBsnizz

It kid of depends on what comes out. I’d think we’ll get invincible versions of them soon.


ireallyheartreddit

The invincible version throwing me GOAT 2k20 vibes


Adventurous-Cod-8514

Length of season has changed from season to season. I'm sure the end date and start date of the next one will be related to the finals, but not sure exactly what the dates will be.


ireallyheartreddit

Ok so you’re thinking this will be the last or second to last season before the games over


Shantier

I believe this is the second to last season. This will propably be finals related in some way, then we propably will have a last season that will be related to draft (NEXT) type of season.


Adventurous-Cod-8514

Yeah It could be a long season that ends around the time the finals end or they could do another short season that ends right before the finals start. They've done 4 week long seasons and the JR one was like 40 days


ireallyheartreddit

That’s crazy. 2k19 and 2k20 didn’t do seasons and I’m just starting so all that’s new to me. Kinda seems the same just with actual dates and Changes now


poizon_elff

Will the spotlight challenges stay up after this season? I know the weekly challenges reset, but I've been doing other things for xp so still missing most of those reward players.


UABBlazers

They will.


Hufftwoseven-

Going into season 8 with about 150k MT. A couple sets away from finishing Spotlight Jimmy Butler then I’ll move onto Dame. I do wish I had done more but I didn’t have a lot of time to play this seasom, still improved my squad a bit. Maybe I’ll actually grind this season 🥴 I did get Gerald Wilkins last night, my first DM. So I’ve now gotten at least 1 vault reward from each season I’ve played, Terry, Kermit, Ferry and Wilkins.


StomachWestern3835

Where is the challenges for dame?


Hufftwoseven-

https://2kdb.net/collection/2k21/Rewards/theme/Triple_Threat_Spotlight_Sim_Tier_2


DonCastello

How can I make my ai players not help defend the cutting oponent in triple threat? They just keep letting my rivals get wide open threes


CmDunk23

Stay home helps. But due to END GAME defensive tendencies players will still sag off to help. Stay home is your best option.


bobbydigital_ftw

I used to play with Stay Home, but I've found that No Threes has helped better with protect perimeter.


DonCastello

Thanks man, appreciate the help! Will try it later


xsesa

Hey, I was finally able to get my hands on a PS5. Two questions: 1) if I buy the next gen game, do I still have my MyTeam or do I start from scratch? 2) if I can play the current gen game on my PS5, is it worth buying the next gen version? What are the differences in game?


brucjobe

Hey man, no you won’t need to start over. MyTeam is the only game mode that carries over, including players and MT. And depending on the version of the game, you may have the next Gen upgrade for free. If not, take a look because it might be free this week or heavily discounted.


xsesa

Thanks man! I have the regular version so it doesn't include next gen. Seems like the 30$ price point now is the lowest it got since launch.


Ghostmaster380

congratz on getting a ps5 though its an awesome machine and not easy to get


xsesa

I hope I didn't jynx it haha I got a confirmation that payment is done and ps is being prepared to be delivered :) but yeah very exciting!


Ghostmaster380

awesome! i had to get mine from someone for way to much $ when it came out but sold my ps4 to make up for some of it but i dont regret it 1 bit.


Ghostmaster380

nest gen game is different from the ps4 version you will have to restart i think. you can get the ps4 version and play on ps5 but its not the same as next gen version


Ghostmaster380

ive not played the ps4 version but the ps5 version is pretty amazing


Ghostmaster380

at this point and time i think next gen is cheap now but you might as well wait for 2k22 at this point imo cause its almost endgame especially if you already have the ps4 version. but if its cheap enough its your call. might be like 3.99 soon like the others before the next game comes out


Hufftwoseven-

I’ve only played next gen this year and I love it. I hadn’t played 2k in like 5 years so it feels fresh and actually intuitive to me. But I would say you might as well continue playing current gen version on your PS5 because the game only has a couple of months left. But if money isn’t an issue then I’d recommend next gen personally, it’s a lot of fun.


goha666

Assuming your old console is ps4 then your progress is synced to next gen game. Game play is very different, and yes you can play both current and next gen on PS5.


xsesa

Thanks! And what's the general sentiment, which gameplay is better? Note that I'm not based in the US so I don't play online because of massive input lag


goha666

Immediately you would notice defense is much easier and CPU actually will miss in HOF difficulties, which will make spotlight sims a lot easier if you haven't finished them all on current gen. Player movement on the courts seems a bit more realistic too. I personally found it easier to green jump-shots as well. The speed glitch is no longer there but at this stage of the game, many big men can drive and rim run very easily on next gen as well.


xsesa

Lol I'm having big trouble on the spotlight challenges, might be inclined to get the next gen game if there'll be a nice discount


goha666

Yeah then next gen will make life a lot easier in terms of spotlight sims. For those HOF games I am using Danny Ferry or Steph to shoot 3s and honestly the ability to green wasn’t noticeably different from All star difficulty at all.


EggWiz

it doesn’t seem like there is one. IMO, next gen does play a little more like real basketball, especially online (no speed glitch, less dribble gods, harder to quick stop, etc). When it comes to MyTeam, this also results in a lot more contested shots going in, as that is the trend across the game on next (a reasonable one imo since most shots in the NBA are contested). It can be pretty difficult to get consistent stops on next gen across the game, especially online in MyTeam though. But, if you’re offline only and enjoy playing more of a sim style, you’ll probably like next gen better.


Not_Jeremy_Lin

I know this has been said to death but how the fuck are you meant to get 8 rebounds over Duncan and Garnett


EggWiz

does it bother anyone else HOW SHORT and small muggsy looks? like I get he’s 5’3” but i feel like he is relatively extra small in the game lol edit: after watching some real highlights and some vids on here back to back, it’s not that bad. I think it’s mostly that he’s matched up with ginormous Cs in the 2k highlights edit 2: wow he was fast....


xUNIFIx

Imagine being on switch and putting hof steady on Giannis 😂


VegeLasagna123

Sorry that was me. Haters get mad!


ContraCoke

Reminds me of the HOF Steady that came with an OOP KD I got


xUNIFIx

Oh shit I think I remember that one too haha


Ghostmaster380

just thinking out loud I feel like Penny and shaq should have a duo card


KDotIsBae

A budget Orlando Shaq that had a duo with Penny would've been really cool


Ghostmaster380

or even the warped reality cards making penny a dm instead of rudy gay would of been cool


Iloveagooddump

I love it when a speed glitch fiend running bol bol, grant hill, and porzingis in TTO wins by two against my squad of Felipe Lopez, Diaw, and cuttino Mobley and pauses on the game winning shot to hop on the mic and cuss me out. It truly puts a smile on my face, it really does. Bro you had to speed glitch your way with some of the cheesiest cards in the game to beat me by two with a much lesser squad.


spidersilva09

I have some Speed Grinches. Should I throw them on Wilt or Radio Giannis?


AZJR412

I'd sell, assuming you'll be able to buy them back for 25% less on Friday. Or, save them for someone else.


riverhk

Sell the shoes and players raw for mt, then buy the players back with shoe. You should be able to find one for cheaper


cbush97

Is baylor worth it anymore to evo the domination rewards


ContraCoke

He hasn’t been worth it for a long time now


wizkidforever

Hell nah


RealGertle627

Damn Kennon is pretty sick, other than his 3. If I'd had him earlier, I might not have grinded for Worthy lol


Jimmyrunsit

Wilkins is damn good too. I got both of them in the last week and they are fun to play with. Wilkins basically carried me his first unlimited game.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Jimmyrunsit

He's super quick. Shot release is quick. I killed it with him the first few games I used him. I got him Kernon, Nash and VC all in the same week. So I'm gonna go home tonight and try out VC and Nash


Intelligent_Food_246

I get the feeling I should have sold my DM Zion but he's already almost 99 in all categories with shoe/coach boosts. Has been my highest usage player all year but his DM probably took a huge hit with the free PD.


lebinott

Tweet removed?


xUNIFIx

Lol wonder if they saw the shit about the one logo being a nazi symbol


lebinott

Oh wow... Lol


bobbydigital_ftw

I don't even know what to make of this. I see NO, LA, DEN, BOS, PHI, and I dunno the last one


RealGertle627

Bos and Phi are in the same division, too. So there goes my first guess


bobbydigital_ftw

Guessing maybe DM Tatum and Embiid?


J-Rod140

Chicago with a Rose? Is that LA or Miami?


DasDGM

Rose is Portland. Assuming there is consistency of the emblems being clues about teams and not individuals. And I would guess that’s Miami.


bobbydigital_ftw

I was thinking Rose, too.


ihavepaper

Hockeyguyjosh on PS5, if you're here, you need therapy my guy. The game isn't this serious.


StanLay281

Not 2k related but the new Samsung virtual assistant subreddit already has more subscribers than r/MyTeam lmao


RealGertle627

Fucking pervs


lebinott

Who did you guys use for your 3 Pistons, it's the last team I need for Worthy and I only have hero Wallace that's half decent in my collection


Hufftwoseven-

Opal Saddiq, hero Ben Wallace and Terry the dentist. Saddiq Bey is honestly a great card, I sold after I finished only because I want to build up MT


lebinott

I used bey to score all my points, won it pretty easily and have Worthy. On to Butler now


Hufftwoseven-

Same, Beys shot is really nice. Happy grinding!


xUNIFIx

That Ben, Amy sekou and opal bey


lebinott

Perfect, thank you.


straightcheddar

How do they drop moments and not reward a guy like Monte Morris who dropped a career high 28. I feel like they didn’t stay up late enough lol. Edit: some of these cards are clearly for like game 1s they just didn’t drop them until today.


wizkidforever

They’re pattern for dropping moments cards is so fucking weird


DFSxBigDoeDoe

Loving this budget backcourt of Batum and Mikal Bridges. It’s ~10K and can lock up your opponents.


CryonicImmateriality

DFS with the defensive stop on Kawhi!


DFSxBigDoeDoe

Saw that! Let’s go! His defense was awesome down the stretch.


shingleding900

not to mention they both have really greenable jumpers


Shoeless_Jase

Haven’t been playing the spotlights much but saw some raves about Tyreke, so I knocked out SAC’s games. Holy hell this card is nice. He’s now starting ahead of Moncrief and Luka for my squad. He’s quick for a 6-8 dude, too.


lebinott

Manu has been carrying me through them. His shot is so fast he needs barely any space to get it off and green


Shoeless_Jase

I’ll try for him next, though I hear the Spurs challenges are a bear.


lebinott

They're not easy but doable and worth it. You'll see


lebinott

Why do I need to select each individual player in TT and scroll through options to select tight defense, the CPU always scores while I try to multi task lol. Can 2k not add team defensive settings, why would I not want to click a button and select tight defense for all? So annoying


spacemon55

Just foul then in the front court and do it when they are trying to put the ball back into play


lebinott

I do but still it should be an option, right? I don't think I'm not out to lunch on this one lol


spacemon55

Yeah it should be an option, it's just 2k so we have to make do


RipCity77

How do I beat this fucking cavs win by 7 challenges. I can’t for the life of me beat them


RealGertle627

Speed boost if you're on current


Iloveagooddump

I actually think the most annoying thing about the Russell spotlights is not being able to simply restart. So damn annoying having to back out all the way to try again


xUNIFIx

Decided to sell off a bunch of stuff today, so for all y’all sake hold on to your shit cause historically I sell at the worst possible times.


BOBBIESWAG

Can anyone on Xbox check the price of DM Oscar Robertson and DM kristaps?


KDotIsBae

Oscar 260k with 11 minutes left KP 191k under a minute


BOBBIESWAG

Thanks!


KDotIsBae

Got 2 Wilkins out of the vault today, and Kenon last night. So that's probably all my luck for the vault next season that'll probably be broken AF


xUNIFIx

Hold up, so instead of making new moments cards for these dudes they just dumped one of their other cards in with the new moments? Shoot, I’m lazy but that’s LAZY


UABBlazers

2k has been reinventing lazy for years. It is all they reinvent but it is their specialty.


DonCastello

What time zone is the double vault event in?


UABBlazers

Should be shown in your timezone. Spoilers: Double vault means you get to open it twice but odds have been reduced to 1/10 of their normal odds.


KingDvo

I bet you anything the season 7 reward is Invincible Yao Ming or DM Bol Bol or something
