I'm not so sure. I tested everyone except Pippen so far, and they all have good packages (minus Bird, but that's to be expected).

99 Bird and LeBron both have better dribble packages compared to their other cards.

Thanks for the info shinron. I'm having difficulty beating the second game of the challenge with Westbrook, JR Smith, masked Lebron in the CPU's line up. I also lost to this same team in the Steph Curry challenge.

Got him in the Southeast Division Legends Challenge. Given it was Chris Mullin who helped me steal the victory, it only makes sense that I'd get another long-range bomber and offensive juggernaut.

I just remembered Nuggets Melo was in one of the live events. Pretty sure 2011 Rose was as well.

I swear they had more content planned this year for ultimate team. Something must have happened behind the scenes. All of these retro faces and assets in the game but no throwback players is baffling to me.

If only the game were on PC. We could've made use of those for modding!

There was something off about the content this year, despite them providing us with a lot of content every week. No throwback logos which they had in Live 15. So if you didn't want any logo arena or court other than your favorite team then all there others were a waste to get in packs. Also, classic jerseys were not included. What a bummer as I waited all season to play with the Hornets classics. I don't think they had alternate courts but that would've been cool to have. Throwback courts would've been a nice bonus.


Nuggets Carmelo and Mavs Dirk and Raptors Carter were on the 2000s team from the master challenges

Agreed, some missed opportunities with no throwback jerseys, courts, and logos.

Picked up Ray Allen for 10,000 coins from the Auction House. Still in my Collection for the moment, currently running with this lineup:

Got lucky with the newest challenges this week. ToTY challenge awarded me with Big Moments LeBron, so I made a decent amount of coins from him, and I got Hakeem Olajuwon from the Southwest Division Legends, so I finally get Hakeem after parting ways with him a while back.

And now I wait for the Centers 2/2 challenges to be released.

I haven't been so lucky with the recent ToTY Challenges: Trey Burke, and someone else whose name escapes me at the moment (but was around 86 Overall). Mind you, I have had good luck with previous Challenges and with some of the Legends Packs pulls, so I can't complain too much.

Sometimes, just getting an Elite ToTW player can benefit you in certain ways. A few weeks ago, I got ToTW Myles Turner, and ToTW John Wall. Both work out really well for the Master Wall challenge, and not to mention that Turner has one of the highest defense ratings for a ToTW card.

The first three PG Masters (Wall, Curry, and Brodie) require ToTW players, and I'd say keep the Elites so you don't have to get gold players, should you attempt the challenges.

I also saw that you potentially wanted Magic and/or Bird for your lineup. Magic's Master requires all the hero challenges to be completed, but you can at least attempt Bird's challenge much faster. All you need for the challenge is 2 Celtics players, 2 Wing Shooter players, and 2 Legends in your lineup.

For sure. I do generally hold onto them in case I need them to qualify for a Challenge.

3 players away from doing everything I want to do in the mode.

2 of them are the most expensive in the game and the other will be the most expensive when it comes out.

We'll see.

Insane.

I still have to play the Playoffs Challenges, so I've still got something to do this offseason. There are a couple more 90s Legends I wouldn't mind getting, but I already feel quite accomplished already.

Awesome! I definitely envy that. And am also reminded how much I'd like to see the Decade All-Stars return in NBA Live 19, for Play Now purposes.

Great lineup shinron! Does the 99 Pippen dunk?

Sadly, he does not dunk frequently. Oddly enough, his legend card can dunk just fine, but for whatever reason, his master loves to prioritize layups over dunking (Master Garnett has this issue too).

The Legend version of Pippen originally had that problem as well, though it's since been fixed.

That's really odd given his 99 rating and the fact that he was really a dunker during his playing days. I might just stick with my legend Scottie Pippen since he already have a good dunk package. Thanks

My difficulty with Live 18 is the fact that I cannot win games in All Star and Superstar difficulty settings without having players with high 3 pt. ratings. I cannot effectively slash to the basket, either I cannot get pass by the defender or my shot will get blocked, even the dunk attempts. So I really rely on the 3 pt shot to win.

I've found that as well. I've had to alter my 90s rotation accordingly.

Last ToTY Challenge yielded a Big Moments Dirk Nowitzki card for me.

Nice, that Dirk card is a good substitute for Bird if you don't have him yet. On top of that, this Nowitzki can actually block shots as apposed to his gold cards.

Newest legends challenge features every legend team from the Eastern Conference. I completed the challenge and ended up with Kenny Anderson. I wanted Ewing, since he's rare, but I can't complain too much, since I haven't even seen him on the AH for months now.

I figured they'd be done with new content, so that's good news. I'll have to try my luck with that one. I'd like Ewing too, but as you said, he's extremely rare.
