Have you noticed some of the top prices cards have gone for at auction? It's insane. I imagine there are some shenanigans involved there.

You mean the high price? Not more shenanigans than usual in a environment prone to insane behaviour. Just people fucking over each other (and MT seller with the incentive and the stock to push things). You will notice such prices especially when the set completion bonus is a high tier card. As soon as Brandon Roy was introduced, booom. And 2K loves that, since all the MT spent is taken out of the market (in case of Frostbite: aprox. 1.5 Mil MT each time anyone locks in). It's their most effective anti-inflation tool.

And dont bother with Eaton (Frostbite lock in bonus), he's a traditional center not worth any mt - he's only big thats all. (Versatile Centers have a significant advantage: high 3pt capabilities and their counterpart usually a low perimeter defense; On top of this if you play online the usual tactic is to spread the floor, so most of the time you dont need the height). Got Gasol evo'ed up, he's pretty much top notch atm. (and relatively cheap)

But you can abuse the crazy market action. I've managed to get Magic and Davis (Frostbite) essentially for free. Had to complete Kidd spotlight and Olajuwon not yet bought due to the price. Then Frostbite hits and the market action swapped to that set. Got him half the price and sold him back (after the challenges) into the asian market (for the "normal" price - 860k). The most essential thing if you want to bypass the gatekeeping of cards - buy as early as possible if a set hits and search for auctions where 4 or more cards ticking down at the same time - so people have to decide and spread. With this i got Davis/Magic half the price sitting again on 1 Mil MT. There's a fair amount of observing involved but since you cant make nowhere near that amount of MT through playing the game, it's worth the time.

I honestly would love to play that game as a completionist free of those strategies, but since it's set up that way...

(and i would love to see the auction house redesigned into a swap meet where cards could be swapped against cards. You still would have 3rd patries (or 2K for that matter) selling good cards, but you wouldn't screw others in the process. The whole card gathering aspect would have to be redesigned too though. 2K should seriously think about that. They throwing out cash and manpower to fight things they cant control just to maintain a systemically broken platform.)

It seems like prices are higher on PC this year, with people trying to make a ton of MT off basic cards. Compared to last year, everyone's trying to make bank off people looking to complete 2020 season collections, with Bronze cards up there for 50,000 MT. Similar situation on PS4. I didn't see as much of that last year, though maybe it's because I got into MyTEAM a bit later after focusing on MyCAREER for the first few months.

This is my first year playing nba2k, so i dont have any reference. And it seems a little bit odd, since the token rewards are pretty much subpar. You're essentially paying 50k for 1,4 Tokens (14Player-20Token)! That would be 26,2 Mil for a Galaxy Opal - and multiply that for players climbing up the ladder. Who..? What...? (btw 1050k if the card would only cost 2000)

But that is the gatekeeping aspect i was talking about. (plainly preventing or at least make it as damageing as possible to players to get things, both players and MT seller have a vital interest). Seems like they want to milk offline completionist player. (TTOnline is a relatively good source of token) 50k - that's a mediocre to good speciality card - that likely outclasses the token reward. So why bother a milisecond?

As i wrote, it would be advantageous (to every party involved!) to just get rid of MT - or at least tying MT to cards through auctioning. It just takes player away from the aspect that's really great - the gameplay.

There does seem to be an imbalance to online and offline rewards. I suppose in all fairness, there's more risk in online play, but still, both should be as viable as the other.

You might want to try Triple Threat and the new updated rewards. There's a chance i've gotten extremely lucky, but over the course of 50 times winning i got 2x30000mt, 2xconsumables (which sadly turned out to be coaches), 7x2500mt and 1x10 token, the rest 1Token. If this wasn't a lucky streak, it would come closer to the avarage online (TTO) experience.

On the auction house prices of base cards: We shouldn't confuse moon prices up there and card prices which actually sell. From the outside we cant really tell. But from experiance (i'm selling 1500/2000 (silver or gold), 2000/2500 (emerald), 2500/3000 (Saphir), 3000/3500 (ruby); (bid/buyout)) i got half the cards back unauctioned. I don't think these crazy seller do anything but cram up their auction house stash. The limit is reached pretty soon.
Another general thing: Dont use buyout, especially when the gap is enormous. Just looked up Giannis. There's a cartell like price fixing going on, putting them up for 5000/40000 in rapid succession, with reasonable prices in between. 5000 is somewhat reasonable (amethyst) , but they are gaming on the peoples restlessness. And once in a while this seem to work.What's really bugging me: This strategy is used pretty often, especially with popular cards/sets. Mostly only a few seconds in between the auctions. Who with a sane mind is clicking buyout in such scenario?

BTW I do think that at least half the cards on the auction house are held by MT seller cashing in twice.

Yeah I play Triple Threat a fair bit. I don't have a lot of luck with the vault openings, when it does open it's usually a bit of MT or 1 Token.

My point was that it's possible that they ramped up the percentages with the update 01/31/2020. Obviously cant say this for sure due to the tiny probe size (games played).

I haven't benefited from it yet if so, but it's possible.

Just a tad unfair. :lol:

Also, the 0 MT issue should be fixed for anyone logging in now, and those of us who already logged in should get a proper reward very soon. I remember this happening before and getting a proper bonus the next time I logged in, so while it's both amusing and a bit irritating, it should all be resolved shortly.

When I try online gameplay in MyTeam using Cyberfaces that are modded, game wont proceed. Have you guys experienced this as well?

I don't play MyTEAM online at all so I haven't personally experienced it. It could be part of a security check to protect against hacking, but yeah, mods don't always play nice online.

I pretty much play MyTeam exclusively offline, so my mods meant for my rosters work fine. I’d be worried I’d get banned if I tried to play online (although I have no desire to play against the 2k community honestly lol). I have extensions such as the limnono tool that I feel may be confused as a cheating tool.

I wonder where the Triple Threat court SCNE is located in the files. I hate this court surface with a vengence. I also would like to see how they textured the surface since the normal courts are comprised of 1024x1024 tiles. Would help me with retexturing the myteam court/stadium.


And what's up with the playbooks/trainer? Got 21/75 playbooks (resp. 12/30 trainer) and not 1 single playbook/trainer from the missing cards to be found on the auction house. Am i too slow / these cards too rare or what's the deal?

You wouldn't. I tried the Hook Tool and attempted to change cyberfaces while it was launched but it failed.

Although for courts, scoreboards and jerseys I have tried and tested they work fine online. I think its only for Cyberfaces.

Now I'm really curious what they have in plan for Heat Checks. With the new "Current NBA: Series 2" cards, they marginalized them even further.
