You don't need close to a 99 defense to swat everything from what I've experienced. As long as your defense is 76 or higher, you can block lots of shots with big men.

Yes, blocks have gotten a noticeable bump lately, as well as getting a foul for a clean block with no contact which is really annoying. You anticipate the shot perfectly, meet them right at the top of the shot, get the block and a late foul gets called

That's the one thing I really don't like about this game. I have evidence saved of me getting a block, and there was zero contact with the player, yet I still got called with a foul. The same thing even happened with a streamer on Twitch when doing the Master Thompson challenge.

Another problem with the fouling is when an animation happens that's out of your control, and you get penalized for it. Constantly, there's that animation with the one handed layup with the defender raising his arms, and that's classified as a defensive foul.

I understand there's nothing you can do about the canned animations but getting fouls on clean blocks shouldn't be happening, especially since they weren't happening before. If anything, they should give you fouls when you don't get the block, not if you actually get it. Makes me not want to try too hard to defend and contest shots. Also, haven't tried on superstar yet, but you need to be able to block shots without fouling as on superstar difficulty guys make shots with a simple right stick contest all the time.

Got Drexler in the first pack. With all due respect to Bill Walton, there's no need for a second.

Congrats on pulling Clyde! Him and Scottie should be a fun duo to run the floor with. I didn't want to open the legend pack since there were only two players, so I got him off the AH earlier on Thursday.

Decided to sell my All-Star Curry since I have his Master Card, and I needed another Power Forward. Picked up All-Star Davis, and he's quite the solid card to have.

Image

Also, the AH is flooded with Bill Walton cards. Earlier today, there was literally a page of nothing but Walton cards.

LMAO buyer's remorse?
You'd be lucky to get ANYTHING back for your Walton card at this point.

Davis is so well rounded, his dribbling should be a tad higher and his 3s are way too low. He's shooting 35% this year

I was holding my breath as I bought the pack. Very glad to get Drexler, especially as I already have The Dream and Yao at centre.

Master Thompson completed. The challenge wasn't too bad when I played Pick and Pop with the shooters. Closest game I had was against the 2000's team, only winning by four.

Image

Also, had to take this screenshot of Larry. He looks so much better than "himself" in 2K18.

Hi Shinron, do you have the Larry Bird card? If you do, how is he compared to the other small forwards? Thanks bro.

I don't have a Larry Bird card yet, as he goes for too much (that's a screenshot of a different Bird present on the 80's Legends team in the Master Klay Thompson challenge). While he is the perfect shooter stats wise, I would hold off on the obtainable Larry since he's too slow. The card is based off his later years, so with that being said, there are better options for Wing Shooters/Stretch Bigs to go with for now, such as Robert Horry, or if you really want to save coins, go for Rookie Ladder Tyler Lydon, as they're much faster than Bird.

I'm strongly believing the Bird in the Master Challenges will be released later, since I found more evidence that he's a completely different Bird. His Archetype is a Hybrid Wing, unlike his Legend card being a Wing Shooter, he has the different portrait and cyberface, and his stats are different.

Thanks for the reply bro. I'm just intrigued with the 99 3 pt rating of Larry Bird. I agree that he is slow and I don't know how I can free him up to take those three point shots. I already have Horry, Devin Booker and Ray Allen as my 3 pt shooters and recently added Steph Curry. I also have a James Harden wing scorer. I agree that his price now is too much. I might consider getting him if we falls to around 200k :D

Nikola Jokic has a Big Moments card today. Apparently, he's a 93 overall, although his card is severely underwhelming with that being said.

Image

Also confirmed is not only the chance of pulling a trial card, but any highlight player, as I got another trial James Harden from the challenge.

LMAO nice "93" card. Wonder if he has his face in the game yet. I wonder if EA thinks by updating everyone's portraits that hey don't need to update in game art. Many questions for them.

Ah yes looks like they've shortened it and kept the facial hair. I don't really play with him so I don't keep up lol. Hair could be a bit shorter.

I did the jokic challenge and was 2 rebs away from a triple double. I had a shot but damn teammates kept stealing my rebounds at the end. Got another 5 game harden.

I want to post a PSA or something for all these guys trying to sell their waltons for more than 8000. They're just wasting their time.

Might get bored and collect an all Asian team lol

At least you have that Harden for 10 games now lol.

I know that I've been collecting Raptors players in case they throw a Master Carter challenge, as well as cheap Bulls players (their ToTW cards are amazing), assuming that EA releases a Derrick Rose Master, since he's highly requested as well.

Haha that's true. That was a really random player to choose. I hope they pick more players at the end of their careers so we can play with prime Wade, Parker, ginobili, cp3 even. Cp3's ratings are a bit lacking imo especially compared to these new cards that are coming out

Starting to sell off my team. Getting out ahead of the market. Something just tells me it's going to crash again and the players I've sold are just going to get better versions in a month or so anyways. Should be at 1 million coins when it's all said and done.

Seems like the market is way over saturated now with all of the cards that have come out. Original gold cards are selling for nothing now. Only cards selling for more than 1000 seems to be rarer cards like ladder and totw and legends.

I've been looking for cheap statement jerseys to buy and flip for some extra change

I'm also surprised that Jason Kidd wasn't included, considering that he is in the game, but only his Rookie version exists; I was even expecting Buck Williams to make an appearance, but he didn't either.

I'm curious on seeing Petrovic's three point rating is going to be. If Horry can have a 97, and Hersey Hawkins can have a 98 3pt rating, Petrovic should have at least a 98 3pt rating by that logic; very underrated player.

First pack!

btw, Drazen has a 99 3pt rating :shock:

Edit: So I took a look at the banner for the Nets legends, and apparently, you can see Otis Birdsong in there, but idk if he's in packs or not. If he is, that's a strange choice to include him over Kidd or Coleman.

I can confirm that Otis is indeed an obtainable legend. He was added as a possible pull to the legend pack a few hours ago (earlier, it was only the three others)

Image

Here's the stats for Anderson and Petrovic.

Image

I might consider picking up Drazen from the AH, especially since Otis was recently added.

Am I imagining things ,or was Grant Hill not in this game? Haven't been able to find him but now I'm not sure if he was even in there to begin with. Iirc he was part of the Magic legends and his ratings were lower than what they should have been
I'm at about 140k I have extra coins to blow so I wanted to get players I like, but maybe I should save for the second Lakers release

Any idea on what teams and players are left?

Grant Hill is not in the game; the only Magic legends were Hardaway, McGrady, and O'Neal.

I believe the only teams left for legends, are the Warriors and the Jazz. I'm also assuming that there will be a Lakers and Celtics part 2 in the form of the featured events.

Technically, they did do New Orleans legends with the Hornets legends (since the original Hornets are the same franchise as the Pelicans, and the current Hornets are the Bobcats)

Stoudemire is in the game already due to the Suns legends, but I see Carter, Paul, and some others as throwback masters. It wouldn't make sense to dedicate legend teams just for them.

Conceptually, that would've been better. I also think they should be permanent cards, at least if you satisfy some additional condition while winning the game.

Or better yet, have it to where you earn a trial of that card, and then you use that trial in a game where you have to recreate those stats, which unlocks the full version of the card. It makes it like a combination of the Jordan Challenges from 2K11, and the All-Star promo.

Speaking of which, I got yet another trial Harden card (that makes 3 in a row!), and looking at Cousins' stats, again, it's underwhelming to say the least.

I like the idea of being able to turn a trial card into a permanent one with a challenge, a la the All-Star content.

Opened the two packs, and got Mullin and Hardaway. Sold both of them to make most of my coins back. Wilt is a 96 Overall, so that means he's impossible to get in the AH because these people think somebody will spend 700,000+ coins just for one player.

I wouldn't mind having Mullin or Hardaway, but at this point, I'd still prefer a retro power forward. Gotta save up some coins to make some bids in the Auction House.

You could see if you can find Cavs Kemp or Larry Nance for cheap. I've seen them go for around 10-15k, and both of them are solid defenders.

I sold Mullin because I could get another legend shooter like Elliot for nearly 10k cheaper (much faster and better defender too), and this version of Hardaway is fundamentally worse than his Heat version, only having better speed and dribbling, and has a significantly worse three ball.

Top PFs are sonics Kemp and bulls rodman, but I would imagine you'd enjoy playing with rodman

I've been playing ladder kuzma over them for his 3 point shooting (which is up to 91!)

I'd definitely go for Kemp. I've seen him around that price, I'm just a bit short of coins at the moment. I've been hording my good cards, so my fund have been climbing rather slowly.

I personally got lucky on a few legends pulls and have been able to sell them to build my coin stash.

Random thought, are you playing with Fred Hoiberg as your coach? I haven't seen him for auction at all.
