MyTEAM NBA 2K21

Postby Andrew on Tue Sep 08, 2020 9:02 pm

Early days as everything begins anew, but nevertheless, welcome to our "official" MyTEAM NBA 2K21 topic!

Once again I've double-dipped, and so I have two different versions of the Chicago Breeze going on PC and PS4. On PC, I chose the Kevin Garnett starter pack, while I opted for Shaquille O'Neal on PS4. Let's see if I diverge much further than that. Like a new Fallout character build, I'm sure I'll resolve to do things differently, and then fall into familiar habits.

Played a few domination games last night... and while I did win, the gameplay is really unbalanced.

Cant tweak sliders, so you are stuck with what the game gives you. The CPU plays by different rules it seems, as they make contested shots all over the floor, while you routinely miss layups and those same shots.

Like I said, I won. But the gameplay just feels clunky, unbalanced, and blah.

I've noticed that as well.

i cant win on my team. i got lucky and won one game of domination. i cant do the score 50 points in one game and win. im just a deer caught in the headlights at this point but i do like what they did with my team i got some really good cards. and its fun playing with the people you grew up with.

They brought my boy Boris Diaw back but once again fuck up by making him a SF instead of center (Spurs version)... he's probably a budget baller at this point: a 5.5K Amethyst on PS4.

They need to be more generous on the position locks... there's no reason my Iguodala card can't play SG or my Diaw center.

Ah, but then they can't sell the special edition/glitched/out of position cards!

In all fairness it's a tough situation. The position locks help with balance - at least until those other cards come in - but when they don't account for versatile players who often swing between three positions instead of just two, or two positions but the two they've picked for the card are wrong, it becomes a problem. At the end of the day though, I think accuracy will help with proper balance, at least somewhat.

Iguodala I can live with... it's a Warriors version so I imagine he was playing some 4 but Diaw is inexcusable. Wasn't he starting at center for the Spurs even in the Finals? Wtf?

Diaw was playing center on the Suns, probably when Amar'e was injured

I recall him spending some time at centre for the Spurs. it's tough because he was a versatile player who seemed to float around between a few different positions. For what it's worth, Basketball Reference lists him as a power forward and shooting guard, but that's not always reliable in my experience.
