Monday Tip-Off: MyPLAYER in the Middle

Monday Tip-Off: MyPLAYER in the Middle

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Start your week here at the NLSC with a feature that’s dedicated to opinions, commentary, and other fun stuff related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games. This week, I’m tipping things off with a recap of my experiences playing MyCAREER in NBA 2K20 with a MyPLAYER that’s a centre rather than a point guard. As a side note, please be forewarned that I use the Australian spelling of “centre” throughout this article.

My time playing MyCAREER regularly in NBA 2K20 has come to an end. After I ended up being drawn back into the mode, I finished a full season with my traditional point guard build, winning the championship and setting an assortment of records. The MyPLAYER build I chose has also proven to be suitable for online play, and while the online experience is as hit-and-miss as ever in NBA 2K20, when it has been good, I’ve really enjoyed playing my usual role. After starting the second season by averaging a quadruple-double, I’m going to try simming my way to the Hall of Fame.

That’s not the only experiment I’m running in MyCAREER, though. Although I do want to put the mode aside, I have created a second player. I’ve enjoyed being a point guard since being thrust into the role back in NBA 2K13, and have learned the meta-gaming idiosyncrasies for my preferred build at that position. It’s helped me rack up assists, which I’ve come to really enjoy doing. However, when I was playing in my local junior league many years ago, I was a centre that loved to rebound and block shots. I decided to create a MyPLAYER that reflected my actual playing style and position, in order to see what MyCAREER is like as the man in the middle.

NBA 2K20 Patch 1.13 Fixes MyTEAM Unlimited Exploit

NBA 2K20 Patch 1.13 Released

Patch 1.13 is now available for NBA 2K20 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. As always, the update will come through automatically as long as you’re online. If it doesn’t, try restarting your console or Steam client, or checking for updates manually.

There are no patch notes at this time, and the official social media accounts for NBA 2K haven’t acknowledged the update as yet. However, users over on the official NBA 2K subreddit have noted that it addresses an exploit in MyTEAM Unlimited. As of now, we can assume it’s simply a hotfix for that issue.

If you’ve noticed any other changes in Patch 1.13 for NBA 2K20 – positive or negative – feel free to discuss them in the comments below, as well as here in the Forum. You can also find a complete update history for NBA 2K20 over in our Wiki.

Monday Tip-Off: The Dumbing Down of MyTEAM

Monday Tip-Off: The Dumbing Down of MyTEAM

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Start your week here at the NLSC with a feature that’s dedicated to opinions, commentary, and other fun stuff related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games. This week, I’m tipping things off with some thoughts on the dumbing down of MyTEAM in recent NBA 2K games, and how it’s affecting the mode.

I’ll occasionally see a comment on Twitter or Reddit to the effect of “Who even plays MyTEAM?” It’s your standard “I don’t like it, therefore it sucks and no one else likes it either” rationale that’s all too common among toxic gamers, but it comes off as especially ridiculous when you’re talking about a mode like MyTEAM. After all, its popularity rivals MyCAREER and its connected modes, and thanks to the content that comes through all season long, it makes Take-Two a lot of money. It is possible to play without spending any money, of course, but many who do spend, spend big.

I like the idea of modes like MyTEAM and Ultimate Team. I never thought they’d be for me, but I’ve had fun with them in NBA 2K and NBA Live over the course of this generation. I’ve generally avoided spending money and in NBA 2K19 and NBA 2K20 in particular, I’ve still managed to pick up some really good cards. However, there are problems with MyTEAM, and it’s safe to say that it’s affecting the quality and appeal of the mode. On the whole, it feels like 2K has been dumbing the mode down with the special cards they introduce every year, along with a lack of attention to detail. The mode hasn’t been completely ruined, but it could be in much better shape than it is.

NBA 2K20 Patch 1.12 Released; Fixes Free Throw Audio Bug

NBA 2K20 Patch 1.12

Patch 1.12 has come through for NBA 2K20 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. As always, the patch should download automatically as long as you have an active Internet connection. If it doesn’t, try restarting your Steam client or console, or manually check for updates.

There are no official patch notes at this time, but several people have confirmed that an audio bug during free throws that was introduced by the previous update has now been fixed. In addition to that hotfix, the thread over on the official NBA 2K subreddit lists updates to the soundtrack and a fix for a MyTEAM exploit as being included in the patch.

If any official patch notes are released, I’ll be sure to post them. As noted over on Reddit though, it’s possible that we won’t get any detailed notes for what is mostly a small hotfix. In any case, feel free to share your NBA 2K20 Patch 1.12 impressions and discoveries in the comments below, as well as here in the Forum. You can also find a complete update history for NBA 2K20 here in our Wiki.

Monday Tip-Off: Free Content in Basketball Games

Monday Tip-Off: Free Content in Basketball Games

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Start your week here at the NLSC with a feature that’s dedicated to opinions, commentary, and other fun stuff related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games. This week, I’m tipping things off with some thoughts on free content in basketball games, and whether or not it’s fair to criticise it.

There are many maxims about appreciating generosity and accepting gifts with grace and gratitude that may seem well-worn and trite, but are nevertheless apt. Sayings such as “the price is right” in reference to something that’s free, or “never look a gift horse in the mouth” and “beggars can’t be choosers” in regards to something that is given generously, are a few that come to mind. They’re all relevant, of course. When something is free, we’re not only expected to be grateful, but also make allowances as far as quality, promptness of delivery, and so on.

However, does that still apply to free content in basketball games, such as the Locker Codes and login bonuses in NBA 2K’s MyTEAM? Criticism of disappointing rewards is often met with derision. It’s understandable, because we are rightfully conditioned to be gracious and appreciative of gifts, but it’s also myopic. I would suggest that there is still room to be critical of free content in NBA 2K and NBA Live, and to hold certain expectations as far as its overall quality. After all, it can be the difference between an empty gesture and a genuine act of goodwill. Unfortunately, some of the free content that we receive definitely trends towards being the former.

Mamba Day Brings New Cards, Challenges to NBA 2K20 MyTEAM

Mamba Day Kobe Bryant Card in NBA 2K20 MyTEAM

Nike is celebrating Mamba Day today, in honour of the late, great Kobe Bryant. For basketball gamers, this also means new Kobe-themed content in NBA 2K20 MyTEAM.

A new Kobe Bryant Spotlight Challenge has been added, consisting of eight games on a mixture of Pro and All-Star difficulty. Rewards include a Diamond Contract Pack, two All-Star Flash Award packs, Tokens, and MT. You can also earn an additional 81 Tokens for completing all eight challenges, on top of the 8 and 24 Tokens awarded for a couple of the individual challenges.

2K has also released a new Locker Code that guarantees a free Pink Diamond Kobe Bryant card, and a shot at some additional tokens. The Locker Code is as follows:

https://twitter.com/NBA2K_MyTEAM/status/1249729645273960448

The Mamba Day Locker Code is valid until December 31st, 2021, so there’s plenty of time to punch it in. Spotlight Challenges will also remain available as long as the NBA 2K20 servers are up, so there’s no rush if you have other business on the virtual hardwood. In any event, feel free to join in the discussion about MyTEAM here in the NBA 2K20 section of the Forum, as well as share your thoughts in the comments below!
