Improve Your Player and All-NEW Player InfluenceLast chance for you guys to improve your players before the All-Star break. Please PM me your requests. Ensure that you know what attributes exist in 2K9!Improve Your Player
Every participant has a certain number of points that they will be able to use on improving attributes of their virtual player. You only have one chance to use all these points so don’t waste your points (i.e. any leftover points are not able to be brought forward to the next tipping competition).
For every Skill-based attribute
, it costs you 4 points in order to improve that certain attribute by 1. For every Physical-based attribute
, it costs you 8 points in order to improve that certain attribute.
Skill-based attributes are skills like shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding, etc. Physical-based attributes includes attributes like strength, speed, endurance, as well as mental attributes such as awareness. If you are unsure whether the attribute you want to include is a skill-based or physical-based one, you are able to post and pose your question.A quick example of how to let me know how you want to improve your player:Player: 75 points
Three point shooting + 5 (20 points)
Mid range shooting + 4 (16 points)
Layup + 3 (12 points)
Stamina + 3 (24 points)
3 Points left over that cannot be spentAll-NEW Grinch Effect
The Grinch will be able to deduct points that you have earned in the competitions so that you are unable to use them. I have decided that the Grinch will not be able to lower your ratings as it is more work for me. It is easier to deduct points before you can use them.
Every 1 point that the Grinch earns works out as 2 negative points. He can use negative points to deduct points that others have earned.
However, he is at liberty to use his points to improve the ratings of any player as well.
That is why the Grinch Effect is the wildcard of this interactive experience!All-NEW Player Influence
Here is a brand new scheme that gives you more control over the fortunes of your virtual player.
Complain About Role On Team: 100 points
Demand Trade: 200 points
Demand Trade and Request Destination: 250 pointsFor Free Agents Only
Choose a preferred destination: 80 points
Choose 2 preferred destinations: 120 points
Choose 3 preferred destinations: 150 points
The points listed are minimum values. The more points you spend, the stronger your request will be. If you don’t like being a benchwarmer, you can complain about your role. The more points you use, the stronger your complaint will be. It may result in a teammate being traded away or you forcing your way into the starting five. For example, spend 150 points to complain about your role and you are more likely to succeed with your complaint than spending just 100 points.
If you don’t like your team, spend at least 200 points to demand a trade. To ensure your trade demand does not fall upon deaf ears, spend more points to get your point across.
There are no guarantees that your player’s wishes will be heard and the only way to get past this is to spend more points.Points
You can accumulate points during any time of the season by participating in contests and also by posting articles that provide a different view of my story. These points may be cashed in: at the conclusion of the postseason, before the regular season begins and All-Star weekend.
Prospects can only use their points during the preseason/before the regular season.
Good luck! Points (Pending Grinch Effect)
Playoff predictions, awards predictions and other points have all been accounted for. As you will see below, all those who participated in the ‘random’ contests or posting articles have the most points. You can still post articles if you wish!
