Whether you’re new to the world of sports video games or a seasoned pro, it’s hard to find games that appeal to everyone. You will find some titles that are perfect for casual players and some games that are tailor-made for the most hardcore fans. There just isn’t one game on the market that can do it all. That being said, you won’t find a more popular sports game than NBA 2K. NBA 2K is able to pack in so many aspects because of its realism and by having a large player pool from which to draw inspiration from. There are no shortage of ways to win in NBA 2K but there are a few strategic tips specifically geared toward winning in NBA 2K with MyTeam modes and franchise mode in particular, go now and take a look.
Build a Super Team
NBA 2k has always been a game that puts a lot of focus on building your MyTeam team. There are many different types of players to choose from and a wealth of ways to customize your team. You can play a fast and aggressive game or you can go with a more calculated and strategic approach. You can even customize your team like an NBA team by picking players from different positions. There are a ton of options to build your perfect MyTeam team. You can even go online and play against other super teams for bragging rights. Keep in mind that MyTeam is the perfect vehicle for creating a super team. You can easily earn MyTeam cards to add to your collection. The cards are given out to you as rewards for completing goals like making a certain number of shots or free throws or scoring a certain number of points. You can also buy packs of cards with real money. Super teams are great for getting extra cards to round out your team. You can even create a super team with some of your friends if you live in the same town.
Master Rotational Trading
The more you trade, the more you’ll be able to earn. When using MyTeam trading, you have the chance to earn some achievements that give you more cards. Trading will be the key to building a strong and well-balanced team. The more cards you have that can sub in for each other, the more likely you are to be successful. When trading cards, you can get three times the amount of a card if you are trading two cards of the same type. You can also get double or triple rewards when you trade three different types of cards. If you don’t have any cards that can help you complete a trading request, you can’t complete that request.
Don’t Stay on the Bench Too Long
Don’t get too attached to one player. Every once in a while, it’s fine to take a few games off and let your rotations breathe a little. You don’t want to do this too frequently because it hurts your team morale and can have a negative impact on your team. However, there are certain games where you may want to sit a few players in favor of a fresh lineup. If you have a game that’s not going your way, you may want to sit a few players before the game and then try to play them with fresh legs in the second half. There’s nothing wrong with making adjustments to your lineup in order to regain some momentum.
Play Your Best Players Every Night
NBA 2K is a game all about building a superstar squad. If you’re playing MyTeam, you’ll want to take advantage of the default rules in which your roster is set for every match. Make sure you play your best players and put them in the starting lineup. You can change your lineup during the game but it’s often easier to start the game with your best lineup. You also want to make sure you play the best players in MyTeam games. You don’t want to try to win a game with a card when you have Stephen Curry on your team. Successful MyTeam players have a clear vision of what they want to accomplish and they don’t let anything get in the way. This means putting your best lineup on the floor.
Use In-Game Trades Wisely
This is where things get a little tricky. You can use in-game trades to create some incredible MyTeam teams but it’s a double-edged sword. Using in-game trades on MyTeam can be a great way to create a team with cards you don’t have but it can also be a quick way to lose some games. You can always avoid using any in-game trades on MyTeam by making it a rule to never trade for cards during a game. That being said, you can still use in-game trades in MyCareer and in your Franchise mode. In your MyCareer, you can use in-game trades to help you get to the next level. You can use in-game trades to give away some cards you don’t want, like a bench player, to get a card you need, like a starting lineup card. You can also use in-game trades to get some more coins. In your franchise mode, you can use in-game trades to get some extra packs. However, you can’t use in-game trades in MyTeam mode.
