MyTEAM 2K20

Postby Andrew on Mon Sep 09, 2019 2:46 am

I'm planning to spend a lot more time with MyTEAM this year, so I thought I'd go ahead and create a topic where we can discuss the mode.

Since I've got the game on PC and PS4 again, I've got two different lineups. Thanks to the pre-order packs and picking up enough tokens to get a couple of Emerald players, I've boosted my lineup slightly beyond the starter pack. On PC, my current lineup is as follows:

Image

I went with the Derrick Rose starter pack, and as you can see, I've already upgraded him to Sapphire. I definitely like the idea of the Evolution cards, with the extra goals to shoot for and the tangible reward of making your free card better. On PS4, meanwhile, I went with the Vince Carter starter pack, and also upgraded him within the first game.

Image

Aside from Steve Kerr and Antonio McDyess, the Emerald Reward players, they're pretty different lineups. I'm kind of liking the PS4 lineup a bit better though, because of this man:

Image

Even at 74 Overall, he's a cheat code. That's why he's starting over Kanter, despite inferior ratings.

It's tough to start over after getting all those Galaxy Opal and MJ cards in NBA 2K19, but at least I'll get to play the mode this year since I won't be grinding in MyCAREER. On the downside, MyCAREER was a great source of VC, so I might have to go to it at times to stock up.

The position lock excites me; it's the easy way out (player ratings should just drop when being played out of position), but it's awesome.

What I have noticed though, is that the rewards for grinding all (specially single player modes) are not that good.

Galaxy Shawn Kemp as a reward for all Domination? That's ridiculous and a player no one will want. It gets worse if you count how many hours you have to put to complete domination.

I'll guess what I'll do is play a lot of MyLeague and then spend the VC on packs, because I'm in no way paying for it.

PD: 2 ways waiting for 2K to enable TTM offline.

Robert Horry is better than MJ, because everybody knows that 7>6.

I wouldn't say that "no one" wants a Shawn Kemp card. He was one of my favourites back in the day so I'd certainly like a Pink Diamond Kemp.

Great effort! I'm still working on maxing out Vince (PS4) and Rose (PC). I'm really liking the concept, though. The only thing I'm not liking about MyTEAM this year is that we still have contracts, but it is what it is.

I kind of hope they let us get the other starter cards down the line. I chose Hakeem (who is really solid), but I'm curious about the other cards. Contracts are a pain as always.

Yeah, it leaves a hole in the collection otherwise, which is annoying for completionists.

I've been playing MyTeam, and am having a much better experience than last year.
Evo cards are a terrific addition to the game and make grinding for them and playing the game rewarding. My current lineup is:
85 Robert Pack
89 Lattrell Spreewell (nearing the Amy evo, need like 100 points)
89 Gerald Green
85 Kristaps Porzingis
89 Hakeem Olajuwon
84 De'Aaron Fox
85 John Starks
85 Cedric Ceballos (still far from the Saph Evo)
85 Jermaine O'Neal
89 Darryl Dawkins
+ 3 Bronzes

I've won around 12-13 domination games, and have 42 triple threat wins. Also did the week 1 challenges. Contrary to everyone I don't think contracts are an issue (even though I'd like them removed like they did in Madden). They are cheap to buy with MT if you have a budget squad, and the Domination games give you a lot as well. I only buy contracts with MT so far, and have around 15 gold, 18 silver and 22 bronze contracts, plus around 45k MT and I've bought a lot of cheap players on the AH to reach around 240 cards collected. So, what I'm saying is that by playing triple threat (I run with Spree, Porz and a evo emerald from Domination) and Domination, buying contracts with MT you still can make a profit so far in the game. I think that runs well until you start to get all diamond teams, which are obviously expensive.

That's fair. I still find contracts annoying and an outdated concept, but they are manageable.

I'm totally with you, they are annoying and shouldn't be in the game, all I'm saying is that they aren't that much of an impact economically at the beginning of the cycle.

Definitely. Ideally by the time those other cards come out, you'll have plenty of MT or contracts (or both) on hand and it won't be an issue either. Definitely manageable, but an outdated concept. For that matter, I feel like taking a cut of Auction House profits is somewhat outdated and unnecessary as well.

I get the intention, to try and limit the profit making part of the auction house. But I'd much rather have a lock on players bought from the AH, either a time lock (1 day, 2 days) or a games played lock (play the player for 5 games, I don't know), than to take a tax of 10%, which isn't used at all, it's MT that disappears from the economy.

Exactly. I'd rather an upper limit on prices of cards because as you said, that tax just disappears into the ether.

I have unlocked mine also but the arena lighting in the standard nba arenas is so dark ( i use michaels mod for the others ). I tried to replace the arena but myteam did not start so i guess i have to use another existing floor and maybe replace that with my own built (make a floor file ) if i dont want all players look so dark.

I'll have to create my arena and see how it looks. That's an oversight if the lighting is too dark.

I just had the craziest day in MyTEAM without actually doing anything: I did the Spotlight locker code and got Paul Pierce, Tim Duncan on the second, 75 tokens from the Thanksgiving code and today's daily login is a Diamond contract. :shock: I then realized I have Gilbert Arenas, Vince Carter, T-Mac and Jamison all in my starting lineup who just happened to get dynamic duos so they all go up a card color... wow lol.

I'm gonna go buy Amethyst Noah and Boozer now... these last two sets have been really nice and generous regarding late-2000s players, which is probably my favorite era.

For a mode with recurrent revenue mechanics, it's been quite generous again this year; especially now that the Locker Codes have picked up.

Yeah, I'd say MyCAREER is much more popular and they're doing this to draw people in.

Has anyone had any luck getting a dunk with the Dwyane Wade Evolution card? With his low dunking ratings at the Emerald level, he never seems to dunk for me, and he just needs one to evolve to the next level.

That took me forever because he must have low tendencies/ratings. Your best bet is to take him into triple threat offline. I think I got mine on a fastbreak. Another option is to alley oop to him (also in triple threat for better chances)

Glad to know it's not just me! Yeah I figured Triple Threat offline would be my best bet, but sadly it's been nothing but layups so far. I'll have to keep trying, and see if I can get him a lob.
