JEDL's Fictional Draft Classes 2K20 (Year 1 and 2 Complete)

For other fictional draft classes, check out jomo’s draft classes. We’ve made sure the cyberfaces we use don’t overlap.

Hi, I am returning with my fictional draft classes yet again for the 4th year! With the popularity of the 2020, 2021, 2022, etc. draft classes (props to these guys), unedited historical draft classes and the C H I N A draft classes, I present to you my draft classes with the following features:
  • More than 7 players actually being edited and fleshed out. Year 1 has over 80 fully edited players (cyberfaces/create a player faces, attributes, accessories, signatures, vitals, most of the tendencies, hot zones and badges) with 20 more partially edited ones (create a player faces, accessories, potentials, Peak Starts and Ends). Year 2 has 70 plus 10 more partially edited ones too. I plan to have more than 60 for each Year batch I make.
  • No ridiculous Gary Stu self inserts with 90+ OVR, 99 Potentials and Peaks starting at 21 and ending at 41.
  • 2nd round players or undrafted players will have actual value. I am in the firm belief that players in this range can contribute and others will only flourish when given the chance. The CPU may or may not take advantage of this since they rarely play players with overalls 72 or less while players with untapped potential in Free Agency don’t improve.
  • Peak Starts and Ends actually being modified. I made sure some with high potentials will peak early while others will peak late and some with low potentials will peak late. So, in other words, a guy with a high potential is never a guarantee.
Despite 2K’s insistence that they’ve improved draft classes I will say why they haven’t even tried. But first, on the good things:
  • Tendency numbers are slightly better, I guess?
  • Shot signatures are dependent on height. Not helpful in all aspects, but it’s something.
  • That’s it.

Now here’s why it’s still awful:
  • Badges are lacking. You have a player like LeBron or Antetokounmpo with 40+ badges, while a typical 2K rando is only 2-6 badges. It is impossible to build up a badge repertoire of more than 20!
  • A lot of the ratings still feel like random number generators. You’ll have a guy with 45 in Steals but 83 in Pass Perception, a PG with 70 Interior Defense and 52 in Perimeter Defense just to name a few.
  • ACCESSORIES. I don’t know why but 2K’s AI generator has an obsession with putting

    S T R A P S over KNEE AND LEG ACCESSORIES
    or any arm bands over arm sleeves. Name me more than 3 players in the league who do this. Please someone tell me. PLEASE. I’ll tell you 2K’s randomly generated draft classes have more than 20 players who have this, I guarantee.
  • Peak Start and Peak End. Look, I like late bloomers for MyLeague, I like making the CPU look dumb for passing on this guy I just picked up on the 2nd round. But most of 2K’s guys have it on 27 until 33. It’s BS. Most start their peak much earlier and a lot even decline early too.
  • Players who look like failed science experiments.I will show you your typical 2K randomly generated degenerate:Image

Thanks man. I realized I get too focused on having accurate draft classes that I spend more time editing them than actually playing the game. Gonna spend this year with fictional players that I don't have any expectations for.

Rob are you going to just directly copy the players from the draft class?
Or Will you inflate ratings for yr 1 class (so they are college studs) and possibly taper the ratings down for the year 2 draft since they wouldn't be coming out yet?

I want to play with these draft classes in college but I don't want Year 2 players playing as studs at the same time as year 1 guys.

Maybe I will fix the college rosters to accurately reflect the classifications of each player in these draft classes.

Any chance you can add Che, Frequency Vibrations, Shammy Wells and other MC characters in the next few draft classes?
