The MyLEAGUE/MyGM Topic

Postby Andrew on Fri Dec 15, 2017 4:42 pm

So, MyLEAGUE and MyGM. Who's playing one of the franchise modes this year?

Being an avid franchise gamer growing up, I'm overdue to get back into that experience, especially with all the detail that's gone into them over the past few years. MyLEAGUE is more my speed, as I prefer the sandbox experience, and I'm definitely not up for another corny story. As with my NBA Live 18 Franchise testing, I'm thinking of using the Minnesota Timberwolves: a few former Bulls, a pretty well-rounded and improved roster overall, and something a little different. I'm thinking of immediately re-branding the team, though; likely some combination of their previous designs, at least for the jerseys.

Feel free to share your experiences, recommendations for teams to use/players to acquire, and so forth!

Started NBA Today MyLeauge as soon as latest roster was dropped...I lost almost all my user-played games with Lakers afterwards. The schedule is tough as hell. Ingram is offensive beast. Am struggling with Clarkson.

Sent Nance Jr +2nd rounder to Wizards for 2018 1st rounder so I have at least one first rounder this year.

MyLEAGUE with current, classics and Alltime players.
Great experience, game is harder.

I've got a pretty good team :cheeky:
Westbrook / J.Wall / Lillard
Beal / Oladipo / Kittles
Wiggins / Dr J / D.Scott
A.Davis / K.Farried / R.Horry
Daugherty / Sabonis

Definitely a stacked roster there. Daugherty starting over Sabonis, though?

Yes, but minutes are shared.

That's fair enough. It's a difficult choice, especially as '00 Sabonis was a bit past his prime, and Daugherty's probably a bit underrated, due to injuries ending his career rather early.

You're right about theses two players.
I think Sabonis came a bit too late in NBA, he was a monster in Europe, and had good fights vs a young David Robinson.

Small detail, but there's still 6 inside gold tabs on jersey :|

It's a static part of the texture, I would imagine. It would be cool if that got updated, though.

It should be a standalone texture.

In my next NBA2K whislist, I ask for years that players could get old, gain weight.
Little details but this mode will be more real.

These modes are still my go to every year (aside from Blacktop of course).

On PS4 I have a MyLEAGUE with Skillaz' roster, but I haven't gotten a lot of TV time unfortunately.

On PC though....

MyGM with an All-Team fantasy draft. Running Curry, Petrovic, Giannis, Porzingis, and Yao, with Lillard and others on the bench.


MyLEAGUEs, one with a Player Lock doing "Street" rules, gain or lose a player on wins or loses....took a lot of losses at the beginning so I haven't really returned to it.

An All-Time Team one, which has been my go-to for a while now....

...but what I created the NLSC draft classes for was a current-player fantasy draft. But I "relocated" all 30 teams with community uploaded team packages. Controlling all thirty teams (mostly automated, no trade logic), 14-game season, but I am playing every "TV" game and the playoffs. Might do some silly stipulation with trades on those games in future seasons, but right now I just want to get NLSCers into the league.
Opinions are my own.

MyLeague is my go to mode also. I have just been starting a bunch of random MyLeagues.
I have had NBA, College, Highschool, fictional, and now G-League.

I plan to start an new MyLeague once the Ball brothers start playing overseas.

I've always liked your creative ideas for the franchise modes. They always sound fun, though I find I still prefer starting out realistic - current rosters, no fantasy draft, etc - and then letting the game drift from reality with the trades, signings, and results that occur.

I prefer mygm just because I like the staff having badges. It feels like the league progresses faster. If myleague would have that feature I would be jumping all over it because having this stupid fucking story mode the first year is killing me. Luckily I can trade the players back that the game forces trades from you, feel bad for the console people that can't..
