I had a bad feeling that this was going to happen as soon as I heard that MyTeam was carrying over to next gen.  Current gen platinum focusing on MyCareer VC spending and then next gen platinum focusing on MyTeam VC spending (3000 card-GOAT Collector trophy surprise).  Playing devil's advocate, if I were looking to maximize the potential of selling VC before-and-after the next gen release and selling Mamba Editions of the game, that's what I would make trophy hunters do.  Make them spend VC on current gen MyCareer for the plat and then months later, spend VC on packs on next gen to collect the plat.


Exactly. This is the kind of bullshit that I can’t accept in gaming. 
 

2K is just milking their fanbase for the money they have. We already got enough crap going on in the real world. Pandemics, police brutalities, corrupt governments with a bunch of monkeys, etc etc. 

 

Rather sad to see the direction they’re taking.

You could just choose to not spend money on any of the DLC/Microtransactions. I got NBA2k20 for free with PS Plus and got the platinum without spending a dime on VC.

Yes, but there are many people who do spend their money on things like VC. 
 

This kind of thing is why I will never touch mobile gaming.

Random:

If ps5 is backwards compatible to the ps4, how does that work for trophies?  Do trophies transfer to the 5 if you grind on the 4?

Has anyone here bought the Mamba edition? If so, how do I redeem my pre order rewards?

 

Edit: It just showed up on my account after playing my first my career game.

Yeah there was a problem with the items. Should be fixed now

God damn, the shot meter in this game is very very not good. Either Im terrible at it or there is something functionally wrong with it.

There was a lot of backlash to it in the demo.  If you use the right stick to shoot, it will definitely take some getting used to (assuming they don’t revert back to the old way).

 

For button shooters, I did not notice a difference except that the graphic is harder to see.

Have anyone figured out a play like quick through sts in 2k21? Playing againts HoF level CPU with this shitty shot meter really drive me crazy.

Cant hit any med range, run rim only work until allstar difficulty for me. Tried use that Pistons playbook, its only work about 60% now.

I think "I'm A Star" may prove to be a show-stopper for some. It is going to take quite some time. Also, to earn 3-stars you have to beat the CPU on HOF difficulty. Correct me if I'm wrong but last year wasn't it just All-Star difficulty? Some of the later games are no doubt going to be a right pain in the ass.

 

Also looks like some potential time-based trophies relate to Season. Obviously won't affect anyone right now but I have a feeling that will disappear toward the end of the NBA season.

Domination on 2K20:

Curent: rookie, pro, all star

Historic: pro, allstar, superstar

Alltime: pro, allstar, superstar

Managed to get the Bling Bling trophy over the weekend. I grinded out the Limited mode last weekend and failed to get the ring to appear and grinded pretty hard Friday night and failed again. Finally, I decided to see what would happen if I changed my lineup to all bronze/silver players. Managed to get matched up with people who just got the game and had terrible lineups, after styling on them early on, they'd usually quit and I managed to get the ring that way. If you're decent at the game but don't care to play legit online, I suggest doing that next weekend.

Is HOF a level higher than superstar?  Surprised they started the easiest board with HOF difficulty when everyone is just starting out with bum teams.  
 

I agree with Cyvnyde that 597 stars in Domination will be the platinum breaker for most (same as I felt when the list was released) as it will take a 100+ hour grind for this trophy alone and the last boards against all 99 players will be too difficult for most.

 

I expect this NBA 2K platinum Rarity to be under 0.10% again.

Yeah this year's platinum will be a grind.. 594 stars in domination is going to be interesting though, as there's only 297 available to get right now, so I'm interested in how they're going to implement new lists, should be interesting. Already 2 trophies away from Platinum too, obv Domination stars and I just need a GO player for that other trophy collecting a player of each gem stone

It is in the search filter so yeah I am assuming you will need that one too for Geologist.

Yes, I don’t much about it but think it is above Galaxy Opal somehow.  Like 100-rated players?

From what i read at 2kgamer forum, this year galaxy opal will rated at max 98. So dark matter probably 99-rated (or above) players (G.O.A.T card maybe?)

Thoughts on what the game is like in general? I haven't played 2K for a while, got over their scummy mtx rubbish. I'm aware it's still in the game but I've had my eye on this regardless to go with the PS5. Wondering if I should just avoid at all costs or if it's decent.

They've lowered the difficulty in Domination now. Current is now All-Star and Historic is Superstar. I don't know about All-Time yet as I haven't gotten that far. They still might make the last 297 stars HOF difficulty, but right now it's a welcomed change.

 

I didn't even notice at first. I easily won about 5 games and just thought I had become God-like. Sadly not.

 

EDIT: All-Time is Superstar difficulty.

Haha, I hadn’t noticed that but had just won a load of games I’d struggled with earlier in the week so was thinking the same thing (until now.).

I've checked the profile of some YouTubers that have already unlocked Galaxy Opals and none of them has the Geologist trophy, so those new Dark Matter cards are required for sure

Use the current Pistons playbook.  That's the new Quick STS for folks who can't "get good." I'm waiting for the PS5 version to come out.
