I have enjoyed offline, although 2K for years. Not that I am not good enough to win against anybody, but the people whom I play are just the worst. Pausing taking advantage of these glitches from NBA 2K, not even coming close to really playing with NBA 2K21 MT basketball. It's not enjoyable, even winning NBA 2K! And since I began myteam, it has only gotten worse. Unlimited is pretty much unplayable as far as a basketball goes, and the auction house is among the things I've ever seen. The greed that pushes NBA 2K is, even while unsurprising.
I believe that this manner provides you the ability to play as a bunch of different cards and build really amazing teams to see how they play together, sort of appreciating the"what ifs" of basketball history. However, farm and it turns into a gaming site to try coins. Maybe I am expecting too much, maybe it's more of a design issue. I think NBA 2K would be fun when there were cards available for folks to use and enjoy, instead of everybody trying to one up each other and worry about how much in game money they make.
Ridiculous? Yes. Toxic? No. This year costs have been greater. However, it has been easier than every other year for MT. Not to mention all of the offline articles for adequate cards. Rashard Lewis for instance, rarest card in the place for the card in NBA 2K. Obviously the cost will be mad. There's generally less than 10 in the AH unless he is in super packs. Supply/demand that is basic, if you can't manage it then it is exactly what it is.
I understand demand and supply, I'm saying it's toxic because its spending money to get these cards, since there is for one card a million mt too far. That is a game, not really life? Like idk this like a real life economy. Children and this play with, and at a certain stage, someone should realize that these prices are out of hand. The difficulty us the cards are price fixed ( that I'd consider toxic, which is also poisonous in real life) or there is insufficient supply, which in this point in NBA 2K lifespan is barely acceptable. I've got other things compared to grind a thousand games to create enough to buy 1 card.
Since it functions like the basketball card hobby it's treated like one. I completely agree with you on the aspect of it, especially with kids playing. In addition, I don't know the AH is blocked in some countries but buying packs isn't. On the players end, that's not necessarily as for the price adjusting. It is only a flaw in 2K's system and there's nothing 2K can really do about it. It's not basketball. Like I don't understand sitting and fretting about prices and shit.
So you just sit there and refresh an internet search and that is fun? Go play with a game that is slots it's the same thing. See what works collectively and I like to use a bunch of different players and lineups, but I must save up this stupid amount simply to test out. Idk, none of this is fun to me. I had difficulty making tons of mt but since the finest of packs came out I must've made 3-4m just PDs. I assume people who open a good deal of boxes can't be fucked to check costs so that they set up their cards for 500 with no BIN, if you bid on those you can get a lot of PDs for 30 percent of it's market value, sometimes you can even get them for 500 Mt (not sniping, you simply bid on loads of these that end like 1 minute apart from each other).At a guess I'd say minimal 1.5 million MT. Alright cool im at about 700 atm. Been snatching arenas, playbooks, and jerseys. I discovered it a nuisance when you reach 1000. It should be easier now given there is cheaper and so much more brand new available too, well besides some of the cards. It was an absolute struggle to acquire the last 150. Looking back it would of been easier to wait for additional cards to be released but I'm an impatient cunt. Me and you both man lol hoping I dont have to rely on cards that are pricey as hell to get it.
Finally jumped on 2K21. I had been wondering if you had to start in the bottom, how you would approach the grind. In 2K19 I was largely able to receive the cards I wanted, but this season, it seems like there's so a lot more collections. The formula that worked in 2K19 for me was domination first, get 3 cards you can play with TTO with nba2king, give diamond shoes/contracts to them, grind TTO from there. Play MTU for the Player. Was wondering if there is a more effective way given the additional situations and what not. I mainly care about enjoying offline and getting. Online was purely business for me and I would rather not if I don't have to, but then I'll deal with this, if it more effective in relation to MT and Ball Drops.
