I can't find any info on legends being in it.. I'm getting nervous...

Anybody?


Legends are only a matter of time and I even predict Legend bundles will release this weekend. Payton has been in past LUT.

There are legends in pro am including AI, Admiral, Metta, Payton, Kemp, and Magic. Plus they have jerseys for Rodman and Oscar Robertson in the game as well so I would expect all of them to be part of UT

Been on the grind! Finished 4 out of 6 divisions in the League Heroes Challenges. Here's my updated squad posted on Twitter.

I will probably finish it all by the end of next weekend.

I swear, my rant of Live 16 when I called EA out on making LUT cash grab cuz of how they designed the challenges to be difficult which encouraged people to buy packs must've resonated with them cuz they actually made these challenges quite easy and designed it so that you can build an elite team w/o spending a single penny. Major major kudos to them.

Me best player for this challenge... was Luke Kennard..

Can I pull out the W? I grabbed Evan Turner, Oladipo and Olynyk off the Auction Block.... but I didn't get to use them for this game.

I havn't been playing it as much as I'd like because I've been modding NBA 2K17, but I really need to get more games in on Ultimate Team.

I've played LUT exclusively and so it makes it easier when it's my primary focus. It really is a relief that I finished and I'm not prepared for any new challenges they bring out.

Keep all of your playstyle type and also the heroes cards. You’ll need them for the master challenges. Here’s my first master.

What are play style cards and what do they do?

I tried the featured rookie challenge and was confused when I was playing at home on the Lakers court and both teams were wearing Lakers home jerseys. Also everyone on the other team was wearing #0 except for Kyle kuzma who actually wears 0.

I tried to win it without using a harden game but wound up losing by 3. CPU had some pretty cheap plays including the one inbounds play where the pg comes off a down screen and your guy lays on the screen or stops and they get a wide open 3. Then my team was unable to intentionally foul at the end. Very frustrating.

Then I brought harden in and wrecked them by 20 points.

Next time I'm going to do the bench challenge for a silver pack then the other rookie challenge that requires two silver players

Playstyle cards are needed for the Masters challenges for example. In order to do the masters challenge for the 90ovr Magic Johnson card, you will need 3 "Slasher" playstyle cards (shield slashed in half) plus the Western & Eastern heroes cards, Anthony Davis & Giannis respectively. Once again, Dboygamez on YT has a really good video explaining what each playstyle cards do.

So I've put in some work today with the day off of work... I like the early challenges that are set on rookie difficulty. I've been riding Tyler Zeller to a 30, 40, and 20 point performance for some easy wins. I'm 2 games away from completing one of the 6-game challenges requiring 2 gold players. I wasted some of Harden's games on the easy games, so I had to buy another gold player. I fought for a few but really wanted Randle. The bidding war at the end shot it up to 1300 and I wound up getting Monroe for 900 instead.

I saw there's a Gary Payton challenge in Masters. Go you get a Gary Payton card by completing it? I hope not, cuz that would make me want to do all the challenges that are required to get there.

Yup you get a 90ovr Payton and yes you'll not only need the Western/Eastern Conference heroes to play the challenges but also "Backcourt Defender" playstyle cards in order to play the challenges. He's a freakin beast to say the least. I also already got Stockton. I'm 2 games out of 10 for the Magic Johnson masters.

So essentially I need a player from each team to play them in the heroes game then need to beat the divisional and conference teams? So 38 games for the heroes alone.

Fuuuu what a grind. Are these legends considered "elite" cards that you can't extend like the Harden card? That would suck to have to go through all that effort only to get them for 10 games or less
