Exactly; having one overall number lower doesn't automatically make him useless. It has gotten to the point where I managed to snag a Lakers Shaq for 45k. Most of the people only care for the overalls for each player rather than how they actually perform (unless players have unjustified attributes which somehow equal a higher than expected overall). On the positive side, this Shaq looks like he has his correct and unique free throw animation, whereas Magic Shaq just uses LeBron's free throw animation.

It's always the same old story with Overall Ratings. People place way too much stock in them. It's very hard to get them "right", and there are always going to be players who will seem off by a point or maybe two either way, because of the way that overalls are calculated. As long as the individual ratings, tendencies, animations, and attributes are right, that's what's most important.

I know I mentioned the defensive rating when comparing All-Star LeBron to Pippen, but a good example of defense being important in my opinion is for a smaller player who can't block dunks, and relies on lockdown defense, and John Stockton is one of the best examples I can find. His Master card is a 90 overall, while his Legend card is a 95 overall. Most of his attributes were just increased by one or two points, and his dribbling was increased by five. But the important part is that his defense attribute increased from an 84 to a 95. That includes stealing, on-ball defense, and defensive awareness. Stockton already has a solid offensive game, but with that huge defensive boost, and the hidden attributes to take into account, it becomes easier to understand why he has a 95 overall (I'm assuming he also has attributes such as 99 passing and court vision). But most people who post him in the auction house overlook that, as I see him going for around 30-40k, despite his high overall.

He's definitely pretty affordable considering his ratings. I have noticed a slight drop the past couple of days; I guess people haven't been getting their asking prices.

Lakers shaq post rating should be 99 because of the ease he had and his dominance down low.

I wanted to take a gamble, and I would've been okay with any of the 4 options this week. Was looking to keep Baylor if I got him. Wound up getting Magic on the first pull and Baylor on the second. Used Magic against himself in the challenge to test him out. I actually had a bit of trouble pulling away until the 3rd when I made substitutions.

I had to sub curry out for Payton since west was schooling him but then out curry in for magic when magic couldn't score or hit 3s. Was considering keeping magic but I might sell him because the way I play I just have no use for him.

Are the requirements the same as the last one? 6 ladders, 6 players from that team

I have 2 more teams to beat for the harden master but I definitely want to work on the vc one first

Wonder if pippen will be better than the legends card or LeBron will be better than the all star MVP card

Shaq card is a bit underwhelming. Feels like he has the wrong dunk package, if nothing else.

Much easier requirements this time around. 2 players from team, 2 players with the same playstyle, 2 legends.

VC is probably the best SF in the game.

Hmm I was expecting a Raptors Vince Carter, so I got 6 raptors players for nothing lol
Nets version is probably a better scorer overall

I actually liked the tough restrictions as it made the game more challenging. It's a nice change-up from the mindless cakewalks we're used to. I had trouble with the klay challenges as my players weren't that great so it took a bit of time and strategy to figure out.

Do the legends cards count as play style cards? If not, I'll have to pick quite a few of them up.

Yes, the legend cards count for playstyle players. However, like previous master challenges, the master cards do not count as playstyle players. For example, in the Larry Bird and Kevin Durant Master challenges, Petrovic counts as a Wing Shooter, however, Master JR Smith does not.

Speaking of Larry Legend, here is his Master card.

Image

I can confirm that this version of Bird is the one present on the 80's team, and it is not the same as his legend card. His cyberface has the mullet haircut, unlike his legend card.

I haven’t tried any of the Master challenges yet because of the hero card requirements. What is the difficulty for each of the game including the final one before you get the legend card? Thanks.

The initial challenges required hero cards, but the ones released after are playable without heroes. They can be pretty tough as they are set to a harder difficulty and usually are against better teams

Put my eggs in a Toronto basket so I'm screwed for the moment as I only have Jeremy Lin for nets players. Only 3 for auction for ridiculous amount of coins. Will have to wait for something cheaper.
Also stuck with big moments LeBron as my only cavs card lol
Should be okay for okay styles if legends count. Might need another wing defender if anyone has recommendations

I might have to just finish the harden one while I wait for my auctions to finish to get the cards I need

The Magic, Stockton, and Payton Master challenges are 10 games, with the first 5 being on pro, and the next 5 being on All-Star, however, you need the East and West heroes for them. Every other Master challenges are on Superstar difficulty, but you don't need the heroes unless it's the Iverson, Maravich, and West challenges.

Anybody know of any players who are Wing Defenders? Only two off the top of my head (excluding Pippen) that I know of are Kawhi and Danny Green. Leonard has always been expensive, and Green was going for 20k earlier, but I'm not paying 20k just for one player. I have everything else for the Pippen challenge, including the two Bulls players (ToTW Portis and Nwaba), but I need the Wing Defenders.

I have a pippen for a wing defenderbut need a second one. Found Demarre Carroll, Kris Dunn and Justice Winslow for 20k as well and decided to bite the bullet for Carroll since I needed another nets player and they are going for the same price. Killed two birds with one stone

I had some extra coins to spend since I sold my magic Johnson card for 179k

I've heard from multiple people that Master Pippen can rarely dunk, just like pre-patch Legend Pippen. Speaking of his Master, I found his stats here.

Image

I would've been fine with these attributes if he could dunk constantly like his legend card, but since he can't, I'm skeptical if I want to go for his card.

Absolutely. It defeats the purpose of a great finishing rating if he can't dunk.

2 games into the Carter challenge, and I have to say, these challenges are much easier when you have more freedom with who you are able to use on your team. Also, I think Lakers Shaq's dunk package was adjusted slightly. He seems to dunk more frequently in traffic (at least it's not like Magic Shaq, who's capable of windmill dunks).

All games are on Superstar difficulty. You face the All-Time Mavericks, Spurs, Cavs, Heat, and Warriors. I recommend you use your best cards (that aren't trials), this way you don't get blown out. Also, you might want to adjust your coach settings if you get stuck on the teams. I personally use tight coverage, and crash boards.

Thanks for the info and tip, shinron! Will start the challenge later. How long is each quarter? 5 minutes or 3 minutes?

Brought my A team and got my ass handed to me by the bulls. Once I was down 10-12 points, it just stayed there as I couldn't make up any ground

The game is much more difficult after the patch limiting inside scoring. Meanwhile the CPU hits everything inside still. Plus they just steal everything, it's impossible to get anything going. Kukoc lit me up inside and out. I'll have to stick pippen on him as master Thompson had a hard time staying with him

All games are 5 minute quarters, so make sure you control your own substitutions, because the coach will make questionable substitutions.

The Bulls and Warriors imo are the hardest teams of the challenges. The former has insane defense, and the latter has a prolific amount of shooters on their team. There is an easier way to deal with them; Master Larry Bird. He's insane when you run Pick and Pop with him at the 4.

I'll post the lineup I used after I complete the Carter challenge.

I played the challenge and got Wade...the trial version. I'm 0/7 with these Big Moments cards; knowing my luck, I'm probably not going to get a single permanent card.

Lol, I noticed they didn't photoshop the defender's hand out of Wade's image.

I've got a feeling I'll end up with the trial version myself. Still can't believe I managed to get the permanent Gasol card.

Meanwhile, prices on Magic are getting out of control.

People are desperate for coins at times, because I saw him going for around 150k earlier today. I managed to make some snipes earlier today, since a lot of people are distracted with the master challenges. I picked up Mark Price, Isiah Thomas, and Tim Hardaway (Warriors) for 10k each.

Doesn't look too different than his Nets card. Still wondering how Master Erving has a 59 3pt rating, while Ben Simmons is 0/13 from the perimeter, yet he has a 73 3pt rating. One thing I like about all of Erving's cards is the fact that you can put him at the 4, and he's still viable with his shot blocking.

Oh wow that's a lot of coins for cards I won't use. Might start dumping the ones I've collected so far.

There are some decent trade-in prices for those short term cards. Makes up for not being able to auction them off, especially when you have doubles.

Celtics legends part 2 as the final week of legends. They are Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, John Havlicek, Kevin McHale, Reggie Lewis, and Larry Bird (not sure if this is a duplicate, or his prime counterpart).

Good for EA for including Reggie Lewis, despite his short career (even though 2K does that as well).

Wouldn't mind a Larry Bird card, but I don't think I'll be that lucky. It'd be nice if they have some encore packs, or other means of grabbing Legends if you missed out the first time.

Cool, Reggie Lewis. Guess I really don't know much about him as he died before I started following the nba with Live 95

Glad to see they at least match you up with updated teams in totw challenges. Wonder if they'll do more throwback challenges to make up for the legends

For those who got Dywane Wade in the Big Moment Challenge, is the player model the same as the one in the main game or is it a younger version of Wade? Thanks.

Opened a pack, and got Reggie Lewis. It sucks because his stats are underwhelming (especially with his 75 mid range rating), and I see him going for around 7k.

The new Larry Bird is a 97 OVR btw.

You missed out on a really good player. Silent assassin.

As good as he was from mid range/slashing, he was even better on defense. Died in his prime, really sad. Look up some games from Reggie, you won't be disappointed.

People have pointed out that he moves kind of like Durant, I agree. The way he effortlessly moves about the court, and moves on drives, it's similar to KD.

I got Bill Russel and Reggie Lewis. REally hoping to get Bird. I'm really not lucky with the legends pack.

I'll save my coins this week. Just had a thought: maybe those "extra" throwback players we've seen elsewhere in the game will be big moments players? I hope not.
