The key is practicing the shot meter, and not forcing three pointers. Even the best of shooters can brick if the shot is contested. Play the Shootaround mode for a bit to get a feel for the basic jumpshot, and take players who have different jumpshots, and practice with them as well.

Congratulations on getting Sonics Kemp by the way! How is playing with Ray Allen? I wanted to get him a while back, but I chose John Starks instead because he was cheaper.

Forgot to post this, but here's my lineup composed of every Elite Hero card in the game (and yes, that's still my Trial Harden card :cool:)

That's how you know I've been grinding like crazy on this mode

Hi shinron, Allen is good for me. He has a high 3 pt. rating and can also slash to the basket and dunk. The Penny Hardaway that I have doesn't dunk. Only occasionally when alone on fastbreak.

Yeah, Penny doesn't dunk for whatever reason. If you want somebody at the point who can dunk, I'd recommend Spud Webb, or complete the NBA Hero Challenge to unlock an 88 overall Westbrook.

On a side note, it would be cool if the All-Star events have better versions of the current players. Having legends is cool and all, but since they're rated so high, as well as being the top tier cards in the game, it makes the modern players impractical once you start building legends to your team (except Hero/ToTW Giannis and Christmas/ToTW LeBron). The Master Challenges are a nice element for the current players, but they're only 90 overall cards, compare that to the recent legends released averaging from the 88-95 overall range. As much as a retro fan that I am, I think it would be cool running a lineup composed of current NBA greats with overalls around the 90-94 overall range, as well as my legends to really capture the definition of "Ultimate Team."

Yes, I agree the legends are a bit overrated and regular players a bit underrated. Like how is Rony Seikaly rated higher than some of the current NBA Players. My Xmas Redick was great until i got Master Curry. But I might start playing Rice over Master Curry now.

I think there needs to be more special edition cards, like 2K's Moments cards. Some of them are probably a little overrated as well, but there's more parity with the historical players.

I know NBA Live Mobile has Historical versions of current players like 91 OVR Dwayne Wade, 93 OVR Vince Carter, 93 OVR Derrick Rose, etc. Those would be cool to see in Ultimate Team.

Went for Magic since I already had 3 Slasher players, and even though he's not the best Master player, it's still cool to have him on my team.

So I actually got to experience Superstar difficulty in Ultimate Team, and it's relentless. The AI becomes psychic in stealing, meaning that nearly half the passes you take are turnovers, and it's nearly impossible to finish at the basket without being stuffed unless you use the Pick and Roll. Ironically, it's easier to get blocks on the harder difficulties imo; Giannis had 5 blocks in one of the Masters games.

On the positive side, I managed to pull through, and earned Pistol Pete.

Most certainly. On Maravich's Master challenge, you play legends currently not available. I've played against a combination of the '00 and current Raptors, the early 60's Celtics legends, the early 70's Lakers legends, and the 70's Knicks. Only problem is that you need 9 Playmaker players on your team, as well as the East and West Heroes, which only leaves you one free choice.

The Lakers were unsurprisingly the worst to face of the bunch. Chamberlain is basically intangible inside the paint, West knocks down threes from anywhere, Baylor plays like a jack-of-all, and Brook Lopez shuts me down inside. Lakers averaged 15 points a quarter against me, and I was only able to win by five.

I enjoy the difficulty and challenge of the limitations of the master challenges. While I do appreciate the ease of most of the challenges for those that just started, needing to assemble a specific team is actually quite fun and you have to start collecting cards

I picked up George Gervin from the Auction House for 15,000 coins, thereby completing the GM Checklist item of buying a play 90 Overall or better. Needless to say, he should be an upgrade on Tim Hardaway Jr. Meanwhile, Scottie Pippen is just a lot of fun to play with, especially now they've fixed his dunk package. This is definitely more Pippen-like:

That shows the difference between having a high finishing rating, and with the addition of being able to dunk. Even if a player has a lower finishing rating, but can dunk, he's viable to use.

Gervin's no slouch either. Since he also has a 98 finishing rating, he can dunk over the competition as well. His 99 dribbling also makes it easy to protect the ball, and the ability to perform safe crossovers.

Also, both players were teammates with Jordan :P

How's Magic as compared to Isiah Thomas, Penny Hardaway or Gary Payton? Thanks brother.

Postby shinron15 on Thu Feb 08, 2018 1:55 pm

Compared to each? From what I've played with two of them (and seeing gameplay of Thomas), here's how I can break it down:

Payton vs Magic: Payton is faster and has better defensive skills, while Magic has better playmaking, and post skills, which creates mismatches for most guards in the game. If you're focusing on defense, I'd start Gary over Magic, but if you want a guard with a solid post-game, Magic's your man.

Penny vs Magic: Hardaway is good at finishing, however he cannot dunk, but he does have the best dribbling in the game. Magic has great dribbling, as well as the ability to dunk on a Fast Break transition. Dunking can make a difference to players at times (look at pre-patch Pippen compared to now; he plays much better now that he can dunk)

Thomas vs Magic: Thomas is faster, and has a good defensive rating (90), but compare his stats to Payton's, and Payton is the better option there. Magic somehow has a higher three point rating than Thomas. Plus with Magic's ability to basically be able to play any position on the offensive end, he's more useful than Thomas in that aspect.

Magic is a free card to get, so that's a plus, but you need to complete all the League Heroes challenges, have Hero Giannis and Davis, as well as three Slasher Playstyle players (legends also count) on your active lineup, and win the ten games to unlock him. Hope this helps (y)

Thanks for the detailed explanation shinron! I have checked the requirements for the legend masters and they can be cumbersome. I have only started the team heroes and I have only finished 2, New Jersey and Milwaukee. I will have to collect more cards since I will need current players if I want to get the hero of each team. Thanks again brother.

Had a look back at my team in past LUT's and my squad this year is already looking good compared to my end of year teams in the former games.

But I also look back at LUT16 and the content even early in the year was amazing. These are all of the cards that were out by this time 2 years ago.

You're lucky. My first pull was Dee Brown, and I'm worried about my second pull, since my luck has been pretty bad recently (two Sean Elliots in a row).

Sorry about the late response. I don't have Larry Johnson, but going from what I've seen from him, and people reviewing him, here's what I put together:

Johnson vs Kemp: Both versions of Kemp are better than Johnson in nearly every aspect; speed, defense, and finishing. Since you have Sonics Kemp, and would like another 4 to throw down sick dunks with, then Johnson is a decent pickup, however, if you prioritize defense, I'd recommend some of the other suggestions below.

Johnson vs Garnett: This is interesting, since Grandmama is faster than both Celtics and Timberwolves Garnett. Celtics Garnett has a better post game than both Johnson and Wolves Garnett. Wolves Garnett has a superior midrange game compared to both players, as well as a better defensive game, however, Celtics Garnett along with Larry Johnson (at least from what I've seen) do not hang around the perimiter like a Stretch Big (this also appears to be a problem with guys like Bulls Rodman, and Orlando Shaq) unlike Wolves Garnett. All three players can dunk over the defenders, and snag the boards, so it's a close contest.

Johnson vs Grant: Grant is kind like Shawn Kemp, but he's slower, and some of his stats could be better. While he is cheaper than Grandmama, Johnson is the better option compared to Grant, as he's slightly faster, and can perform easier dunks.

Johnson vs Rodman: Both versions of Dennis Rodman are very close to Sonics Kemp in terms of stats, along with his Bulls counterpart having an 80 in dribbling, so he's good in driving (something not realistic, I will admit). This is where I'd give the advantage to Rodman, since he can also throw down all over the defense.

I'd say go for Johnson if you can find him for cheap (around the low to mid 20k range), but if you can find a Celtics Garnett or any version of Rodman for cheap, I'd recommend either of those two instead. I know I found Celtics Garnett going fr around 9k today, as well as Pistons Rodman going for 11k.

Thanks for the comprehensive review brother! I'm just a fan of the Hornets era Larry Johnson so I'm interested in picking him up for a reasonable price. I might auction my Horace Grant and pick up LJ so my forward lineup will be Kemp, KG and LJ. Let's see if there's a reasonably priced LJ this weekend.

Glad to see you get Allen Iverson. How does he play? Thanks again for the inputs bro.

Iverson is one of my favorite guards in Ultimate Team right now. Even though other legends have a 99 in dribbling, he has his own unique dribbling package, which makes it easy to cause anklebreakers, even on Superstar difficulty. On top of that, his 96 speed makes him at least the top 3 fastest players in the game, as well as the ability to perform Rimgrazer dunks on Fast break transitions. He is definitely worth it once you complete his Master Challenge (along with Pistol Pete).

If you need insights on anything, feel free to let me know so I can offer some more suggestions (y)

Hey guys, I'm trying to sell some old legends I don't need anymore, but I can't seem to get them sold. I offered 12k for Cavs Kemp for about a week, and nobody's picked him up, even though he goes for around 20k. Should I do the method where I put him up for 24 hours bid only, starting at 100, or would that be too risky?

My rule is that generally what you see in the AH is too high which is why you still see it and why it hasn't been bought yet. After an unsuccessful week, I'd say your asking price is too high. I would try 8-10K. Have you been offering buy it now?

Man, prices on legends have anyone way down. Keep in mind supply (seems to be a good number of cavs kemps) and people doing what you're doing (getting better legends and selling off old ones)

Yeah, I usually had 12k for the buy now price, and about 5k-6k for the bidding, and about 6 hours. I might take your advice and lower him to 10k.

Also, I'm going for the Master Westbrook challenge since I have enough Thunder players, and I still have my Hero Westbrook card. Do you have an idea for how much his Hero card goes for so I can sell that one after I finish it?

I normally set my auctions for 1 day as it gives it more time for someone to find it and buy it. Almost everything I've sold has gone buy it now so having it up and getting exposure is important

Don't you need the hero cards for challenges? I wouldn't sell it unless I was sure I didn't need it. They might have new challenges requiring those cards.
I was kicking myself for selling all of my thunder and warriors Xmas cards

Hero Westbrook is not part of any Master Challenge requirements from what I've seen; they require the East (Giannis) and West (Anthony Davis) Heroes, but Westbrook is the NBA Hero, which is classified differently (as well as the only Hero card that can be put on auction). Even if there's required OKC players for future Master challenges, Master Westbrook should technically count, since Master Curry can be used in the Master Thompson challenge.

Tried to close out the master Westbrook series against the 2012 Heat and man it was a tough one. I couldn't pull away and missed an opportunity to take the lead with kuzma but he redeemed himself with a 3 with 2 seconds left. They called timeout and Bosh hit a 3 for the win lol
Even though I lost, it was still really fun. Computer is smart enough to make adjustments as they started Justin Hamilton in the 2nd half to counter my Kanter. Tried again and wrecked them.

Will go for Master Klay next. Was going to give it a shot but I saw the decade lineups and I'm afraid I might get killed so I bought a ladder Jordan Bell that allows me to add a player to my lineup since he doubles as a ladder and warriors player. Added Kemp to my lineup to battle Wilt and Russell

Directional passing becomes a huge disadvantage on superstar difficulty as some normal passes get picked off and that's not talking about them deciding you want a cross court pass that's guaranteed to be a turnover.

Getting used to Superstar isn't as bad as I anticipated, except for the constant turnovers as you mentioned. I usually try to cancel it out by various gimmicks that I like. For example, I have a tendency to put someone like Giannis at the 1, which creates a ton of mismatches, as well as most Point Guards being poor at boxing out, so Giannis can out rebound them. Another thing I like to do is get a player on a hot streak, then when he is being doubled, I kick it out to someone who can drop threes to punish the defense.

I'm curious on seeing the roster of the legends, since I couldn't find any information on them, other than they were rated high, but I'm curious to see what the decade teams have to offer.

Every all star starter got a 93 overall card that you can pick between 2 playstyles.

How do you get those cards? Free from challenges or you have to buy em like legends packs

I tried playing against the 70s team and unfortunately they don't trap the pick and roll so I couldn't exploit that with my 3 point shooting team. Managed to claw my way back from an 11 point deficit but pistol Pete hit a bunch of threes at the end and caught fire and put it out of reach. Dr. J is unstoppable on drives.

What's important to point out is that the 90 Overall starter is only good for one game, like the Gauntlet players in the Xmas event.

btw Q, your idea worked beautifully for me. I was able to get Cavs Kemp auctioned, so I had enough to purchase his Sonics counterpart for 48k, as well as Chuck Person for 44k.

OK so it sounds a lot like the Xmas event. I might have to get that curry even though I already have a master Curry because this one is way better. Curious to see the LeBron and giannis cards

The card you get random, but it's one of the ten starter players in the AS game. I haven't seen Giannis, but I've seen both of James' cards, but imo, they both look similar to Nique in terms of stats. You also get boosted versions of non All-Star players after defeating each of the competition teams; I got an 85 OVR Kyle Kuzma card, and an 85 OVR Dennis Smith Jr card (He's got a 99 in speed :crazyeyes:)

Oh man I want that kuzma card! Lol
I have already had all of the different versions of his leading up to the 87 ladder card. Don't know if it would top that
