I think I'm going to stop focusing on my team overall and start focusing on finding fun cards to use. If I keep trying to get the best cards I'll just be playing the game once a week when content drops. Maybe start doing some all time teams.

Here's the 2018 all star team

So on my fifth try today I beat it. First two times the game signed me out of EA so the game quit. I eventually bought the cheapest Durant card I could find to help. My god Walton blocks everything inside. I beat the 80s team fairly easily but holy shit the 90s team sent my ass back in a body bag. They have 3 of the best card in LUT and two of them come off the bench.

I do like how they have retro shoes for that specific time period

Picked up Kyrie Irving in the Team LeBron series, transformed him into a Point Shooter. Just got to get through Team Stephen before they're gone.

Today's the last day to earn Transformable cards, so hopefully you don't miss it! Kyrie as a Point Shooter isn't a bad card at all. On top of a solid 3 point game, he's got a decent finishing rating.

So on my second try against the 90s team, I went back to my tried and true strategy of pick and roll then hitting the open 3 pointer after the defensive rotation. I also used the limited time Magic Shaq card and my god he is a beast. I might look to pick him up from the AH. beat the 90s team then easily the 00s team. I noticed a classic Vince, Dirk, and Carmelo on the team so they might be the next set of throwback masters. In anticipation I am already picking up some raptors players for cheap. After getting master Klay (who is basically who I have been looking for. 90+ 3s and 80+ defense), I took a look at my team after all of the all star pickups, I decided to put my all star Durant card and my Xmas Redick card (which I don't use anymore) up for auction. It sucks I could've gotten more for my Redick card before but I'll have to settle for whatever I can get for it now that all these good cards have flooded the market.

Playing against the 80s team was tough as both teams were wearing Lakers gold jerseys lol
Using the all star jerseys for away but seeing this hurt my soul

Ouch. It's like the All-Time Thunder squad in NBA 2K18, which doesn't have any Sonics throwback jerseys to choose from.

All-Star Fantasy Challenges are complete! I ended up getting Curry himself from the Team Stephen challenges, and chose to transform him into a 93 Overall Point Shooter. It's a fine card, and he forms a rather deadly backcourt duo with 93 Point Shooter Kyrie Irving, but I was hoping I'd get one of the bigs from Team Stephen. Ibaka and Howard get the job done, but I could obviously stand to be more stacked at power forward and centre.

Won a Pierce card going for auction earlier today. This was the cheapest one, and somehow, nobody else bid on it.

Image

I couldn't find Glen Rice, so I ended up getting Jamal Mashburn for 27k. Not the fastest shooter, or greatest defender, but I've got a defensive team, so there shouldn't be too much to worry about. On top of that, I sniped a Slasher DeRozan for 23k.

I sold my AS away uniform and got about 10k from doing so. I think with that much, you can find a cheap Cavs Kemp card, or a Larry Nance card.

I got a deal on the all star jerseys. I got one for 2400 and another for 1200 and I flipped one for about 10k. I got the arena for cheap too I think it was less than 5000.
Hopefully my Durant & Redick cards sell so I can get the Orlando Shaq

I have a Rice that I might be willing to sell. I want to get him in my lineup but he's not cracking the top 12 so I'm trying to find a reason to take someone out.

I saw a Pierce card going for 95k and I was interested in flipping it but I spent 130k to get the Shaq card. It started at 80 and got bid up to 100 and I felt that was the only guarantee of me getting it plus that's about how much he is going for anyways

Has anyone completely cleared out the training camp challenges? Did they give you a reward? I have one left to finish and I'll do it for an extra reward

You don't get anything special from completing all the training challenges iirc. It's just the rewards from each individual challenges.

Good to hear that you have a Rice willing to be sold. Trying to earn some coins by selling some cards I don't need anymore so I can eventually get him. I wanted Bird, but when I've seen people point out that they usually release two versions of him, I might hold off on him to see if that's true.

What do you guys think about making a mode like Ultimate Team two players? As in, make it so people can be on the same team completing challenges together?

I would be interested in that, my brother and I would probably sink our teeth into a feature like that.

Considering there is only one team, it would have to be like Fifa where there is a main account with a guest that can join and play on the same team.

Would be cool to have online OTP like they did in Live 10 but allow multiple players on the same console

NHL 18's ultimate team has a feature like that. You can play all of the solo challenges with people online or local co-op.

This new Team of the Week LaVine looks like a great budget card. Picked it up for 4k.

Wow, it's a good thing you took the time to collect all of those cards lol
So I'm guessing both LeBron cards got a bump? I have the scorer not playmaker like you.
I had also picked up a Mitchell card for shiggles and I am happy that I did now.

Both versions of LeBron got the upgrade. From what I've seen, the only thing drastically changed is that he now a 99 in dribbling.

Btw, Rockets legends tomorrow. Confirmed players are Robert Horry, Hakeem Olajuwon, Tracy McGrady, and Yao Ming.

I'm interested to see Hakeem as he will probably be a 94 with no ratings under 80 except 3s. 90+ def and post. Might go for yao for nostalgia. Not sure how different tmac will be from the magic version. Probably will be pretty similar.

Oh nice I forgot to check my Mitchell and LeBron cards last night. His wing scorer form is now one of the best cards in the game. I think I can safely sell my tmac card. Speaking of which, looks like his rockets version isn't quite as good as the magic one. Curious to see yaos card

Somebody pulled Yao, and here are his stats

Positives: 99 Defense, 90 Rebounding, and he's 7'6''

Negatives: Slower than Divac, 46 MIDRANGE?! He should have about an 89 in midrange with these stats

LMAO 46 mid-range
He was hitting fadeaways with ease from midrange.
This is particularly funny especially with them overrating basically all of the legends to this point. I think this is a case of them giving shit ratings in other areas to balance his good ratings and to keep his overall lower. And I mean he was a little slower but he was so big. He was too quick for his own good that his body broke down because it couldn't handle how quick he was at that size. It's almost as if they had just copied manute bols stats over
Well, at least he isn't that great of a card so I should be able to find him for cheap in the AH instead of dropping 35k on the pack

Wow, I'm definitely going to wait as he's not really a must have for me. I'm shocked at how much the prices have come down. I paid like 135 for sonics Kemp but now I'm seeing him at 35-50

One guy put his bird at 500k and buy it now at 9996000 lol

imo Bird doesn't seem like he's a must-have, especially since I keep hearing that EA usually releases two versions of him in Ultimate Team, and people are speculating that this Larry is his older version. He certainly looks like Larry towards the end of his career, but compare how he looks on the All-Time 80's squad, and he looks like prime Larry with the mullet haircut. I think we'll get that Bird, along with the 60's Celtics possibly on a St.Patrick's Day event.

I wouldn't take their in game appearance too seriously as plenty of players don't look like their pictures. For example Mitch Richmond isn't bald like he is on his card. I'm guessing this is because they are reusing cyberfaces from older games but with new pictures that don't match. But I wouldn't be surprised if they had a younger bird like you said. His ratings aren't as good as you would expect.

I could see him being a part of a second Celtics legends week like how the Lakers should be getting a second one

I wasn't referring to the card portraits, but the CF's themselves. Right now, the obtainable Larry Bird's ingame CF has short hair, but the (for now) NPC Bird present in the Master Challenge appears with his mullet ingame.

Image

This is how Larry looks as the legend card. It's not the same CF as his younger counterpart.

It's the same with Julius Erving, where his 76ers card ingame has short hair, but on the 70's All-Stars, he rocks the afro from when he played in the ABA/early years on the Sixers.

Was not as lucky as Shinron. I got T-Mac and Robert Horry. I put T-Mac up for auction since I already have his Magic version with better stats. The only upside of Horry is is 97% Three point rating :D

Yeah see that's what I'm saying. Overrated. There's no way you could ever make the argument that Horry was even close to Curry as far as 3 point shooting, and he's given a 97? And then you get Yao 's mid rating

I do have to agree in that aspect. Even Hersey Hawkins has an over exaggerated 3pt rating (a 98 to be exact), and Curry's best is a 96. The one thing I can say positive that LUT did with Yao was not giving him a speed of about 34, unlike 2K18.

As much as I agree with a majority of the legends being overrated, I can't complain too much, especially since like 40 players can compete on Steph's level of three balls in MyTeam. Still, though, Horry should not have a 97 3pt rating, and not only Yao, but Hakeem, and even David Robinson should all have better midrange ratings.

I kind of like that they've made the Legends appealing and special to play with, but yeah, I'd prefer a little more accuracy.

I'm seeing people on Twitter left and right having a meltdown over the stats. Earlier today, I've seen people post images of their pulls, but ever since people have started complaining, nobody's posted a single pull. It's gotten to the point where some people won't buy the legend pack to receive "broken legends", and claim that EA disrespects said legend players.

Player ratings are serious business in sports gaming, to say the least.

There is a delicate balance as you said you want to make them special. I actually like grant hill but his ratings weren't as good as I thought they would be so I never bothered. Unfortunately I can't find him in the AH anymore.

Right now there's a ton of rockets tmacs and Horrys. I'd hate to have pulled one of those. People are charging way too much for yao but there's a few sensible auctions for him right now

Apparently people are so upset at Hakeem's stats, that they are putting him up for around 60k in the XB1 version of the game, claiming that he has "bad stats." Sure he doesn't have his midrange game, but people also seem to forget that you don't need 99 defense to block almost anything. My Hero Embiid card with an 82 defense can get a good number of blocks, and I put Olajuwon to test last night, and he ended with 8 blocks (Shaq usually gets around 6-8 as well).

Since the inside game was nerfed in the last update, people are also calling him useless when playing the post game, but if you think about it, even if he gets a 99 post rating, it's not going to help much, since even the best post players now aren't dead accurate inside anymore.

Yao is going for so much because I'm pretty sure the blocking system factors in player height as much, if not more than blocking stats. It's part of the reason why you can almost never dunk on players in head to head if the player attempting the dunk isn't close to the same height or taller. No matter the finishing stat it will get blocked 9 times out of 10. So Yao and Bol being 3-4 inches taller than the next tallest players in the game should make them shot blocking machines.

I haven't tested this too much so It's just a theory. I'll have to look into it.

Wilkins and Mitchell got a few dunks in when I played the challenge (which is on pro difficulty) but otherwise had their shit swatted by yao most of the time. I then proceeded to rain down 3s on them with curry and Mitchell to avoid the inside.

I don't understand how the auctions work. Last night I lost out on two 20,000 coin auctions for yao. Every time I bid at the last second they add more time to let others bid. But if I don't exit and search again, it'll tell me I'm winning and won't show me any new bids or add time and it'll time out and it'll say I lost afterwards. On the last one I literally searched again with less than 5 seconds left and was still winning and somehow the dude bid inside those last 5 seconds, didn't add any time on the clock, and I lost it

I might consider picking up Yao. Not only is he going to be cheese, but he looks much more like himself than he does in 2K.

Edit: I posted my Dawkins card if anybody is interested in him. 18k starting bid, and 25k buy now; it's the cheapest one on the AH.

Dawkins stats are pretty good. I've thought about picking him up before. I went ahead and bought yao at 40k buy it now since he was going in the 30s in auction.

Set up my lineup and I had a big glut at sf with wilkins LeBron tmac pippen and I had to try to get Rice into the lineup so I sold my tmac for 75. Getting Shaq and yao made Kemp or rodman expendable so I am auctioning rodman off

I sold my Pistons Rodman card for about 26k, which gave me 64k to spend. I was tempted to get Yao, but I decided to pick up the All-Star Joel Embiid card instead for 60k. Not only can he play Grade-A defense, but he's also got a solid midrange (which Yao should have too), and can hit the three when left wide open.
