When it comes to NBA 2K games, most players know that the cards in your virtual deck often determine whether your run ends up being frustrating or an enjoyable experience. To hit the sweet spot between fun and frustration, you need to spend a lot of time playing with your MyTeam card packs. You’ll have the best chance of getting the results that you want if you familiarize yourself with these four tips in detail.
Build from day one
In NBA 2K MyTeam, cards are dropped into your virtual deck at the start of every new season. You have until midnight on the 31st of December in the year that you buy the game to put your cards together. What happens after that is up to you. That means that if you start collecting cards in the months before Christmas, you have a much better shot at finishing your virtual team after the New Year. Remember that you’ll face a lot of players who are already halfway through their collections. A big advantage is that you get to start building a team before the vast majority of people even know about the 2K game.
If you’re lucky enough to snag a particularly good pack, you’ll likely want to add some of the cards that you get to your MyTeam card collection. It’s easy to do in NBA 2K23. Simply go to the card collection section of the game, select your MyTeam player, and then click on the tab that says “Upgrade List.” From there, you can click on any card and then click on the “Add to MyTeam” button. The game lets you do this up to four times, and then you’ll have to wait a day before you can upgrade again.
Pay attention to rookies
If you’re going to be building your team from scratch, you’ll want to make sure that you get a good mix of veterans, rookies, and tradeable superstars. The trick here is to make sure that you start with a good mix of veterans and then try to pick up a few rookies along the way. By doing this, you’ll be able to get a strong veteran player who has a rookie teammate who is likely to get better. You can also use this strategy to get your hands on a superstar who is already in the NBA. To do this, you’ll want to start out with a rookie and then after a few months, you can upgrade to a veteran and then start building your superstar around that veteran. For example, if you want to go for a LeBron James-led team, you can start out with a Kevin Love-led team and then after a few months, you can upgrade to a LeBron James-led team. Doing this will let you build a strong LeBron James-led team right away and then you can use the same strategy to get guys like Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard on your team.
Lastly, always watch for splurges
If you are looking to get super lucky and hit the jackpot with some of your packs, then you can try to get some of the very rarer cards. For example, you might want to try to get a LeBron card that is a superstar. This is a very rare card and you’ll probably just want to skip to the end of the pack and start over. That being said, if you do get a really good LeBron card, then you’ll want to think about upgrading to get LeBron on your MyTeam team as quickly as possible. If you’re looking to get a card that is really, really, really rare, then you can try to get a card that has a blue number next to it. This can help you find some of the rarest cards in the game. However, you’ll have a much better shot of getting a card like this if you upgrade your collection at the first chance that you get.
