Default NBA 2K13 'MY TEAM MODE' Discussion

2K's version of EA's Ultimate Team is titled 'My Team Mode' in 2K13.

Talk about building your team up, look for help and suggestions, maybe make some trades with fellow ISH'ers, or organise some online games.

What the hell is this?

Apparently I'm the Kings/Raptors.

With Monty Williams as the coach. Meh.
Pacers Arena. Terrible.
Bucks playbook. Who cares.

Anyway, given players were...
PG: Norris Cole - Cory Joseph - Andrew Goudlock - Royal Ivey
SG: Tony Allen - John Jenkins - Daequan Cook - Matt Carroll
SF: Travis Outlaw - Luke Walton
PF: Jonas Jerebko
C: Enes Kanter

So yeah. I guess Kanter, Jenkins, and Allen are decent. Although I hate Allen in this game because his defense doesn't show as much in a video game.

Running with Cole - Jenkins - Allen - Outlaw - Kanter as the starters.

Also the ugly ass Kings home jerseys and it says classic away Raptors for away. I don't know, they look like the current ones to me.


I don't know what to do. Played the rookie challenge mode in the My Team mode and the other team had Rondo, Michael Cooper, Larry Bird, Bill Russell... With GP and Chandler off the bench,

A little guidance would help before you enter this mode.

They are trying to replicate EA's Ultimate Team mode, because it makes EA billions of dollars.


The problem is, it doesn't translate well to the NBA, as their are not nearly as many players, leagues, formations, etc.

It looks like this is their beta version, where instead of having a live market, you can only buy players from the game for fixed prices. Eventually, maybe next year or with DLC, they will allow you to buy Virtual Currency with real money, and use it to buy packs of Player Cards to build your roster. My guess is they are still creating/preparing the transactions system.



Like I said earlier, it doesn't translate well to Baksetball IMO. I'll stick with FIFA for my Ultimate Team fix, MyPlayer and Association for NBA2K.

Looked cool in the developer insights, and I'll definitely try it out.

I haven't played Madden since 2010 and Fifa since 2011. Don't remember it.

Played some dude online and he had no idea what to do without a star. He was using Wesley Johnson like LeBron... Needless to say, I whopped his ass.

Mode seems not properly planned though. Still don't know what I'm exactly supposed to do. Probably not going to play it again. Wish it would have told me that it costs points to first play the mode. I would have saved that shit for My Player.

I'm a huge fan of the Ultimate Team mode when playing FIFA, but I really can't get into this on 2K. I agree with guys who say it doesn't really translate for Basketball games. To be fair, I've not given it much time, but nothing about it makes me want to play it yet.

Bump. I started playing it last week and enjoyed it for a few days. As I advanced in the seeding, I began encountering more and more people who bought their players, so there were teams like the following:

C- Dwight Howard
PF- Blake Griffin
SF- LeBron James
SG- Kobe Bryant
PG- Chris Paul

With a bunch of star players, like DWade, Brandon Jennings, Chris Bosh, Monta Ellis, etc., all on the bench.

Needless to say, it became unfair and ultimately boring to play. Only took 3-4 days to go from great to "don't-feel-like-touching-this-again."

And to make matters worse, whenever I'd encounter one of these guys with super teams and I actually started winning, by the 4th quarter, they'd pull b.s. like pausing the game and waiting until the final second before they're forced to forfeit before un-pausing the game, calling numerous 60 second timeouts with just a couple minutes left in the game with me obviously about to pull a W, and there was one bitch who kept pausing the game and playing replays over and over again because he knew my 20 point lead in the 4th quarter with 1 minute to go was insurmountable.

Oh, and don't let me forget about all the frikkin' 3-pt chuckers. I played against one guy who did nothing but chuck 3's all game. He hit maybe 15 out of 47 throughout the game.

Yep, this about sums up the mode. I love playing dudes who run lineups of Jordan-Kobe-Lebron-Durant-Dwight with Melo, Bill Russell, CP3, etc off bench and still suck at the game and find ways to lose. The only reason these guys can keep the game close is by overall difference in players. I'm here lighting these scrubs up with Gary Neal, Steve Novak, Austin Rivers and etc, why they struggle to score with Jordan/Lebron/Kobe.

Here's my starting line-up:


C- Javale McGee
PF- Perry Jones
SF- Gerald Green
SG- Austin Rivers
PG- Ron Harper


I dominate the paint. I think I average about 70 points a game with 55 of those points coming in the paint.

I started playing this mode again. My starting line-up is:

C- Enis Kanter
PF- Kris Humphries
SF- LeBron James
SG- Jodie Meeks
PG- Jeremy Lin

I saved a lot of VC in order to get LBJ & Lin. Currently in the 5th seed with 1 more win leading me to the 4th. I sometimes get frustrated with playing against guys with superstar rosters, but in most cases, even when I lose, I find pleasure and comfort in knowing they BARELY beat me even with their incredible line-up.

I beat one guy who had a roster with the exact following:
Dwight Howard
LeBron James
Kevin Durant
Dwyane Wade
Steve Nash
---------
Kobe Bryant
Gerald Green
Anthony Morrow
Austin Rivers
Paul George
Dirk Nowitzki
Carmelo Anthony

In that exact order^^^

I beat him 102 - 66.
All he did was shoot 3's or midrange. He drove to the basket a handful of times and did get a few spectacular dunks on me, but that was about it. He didn't know how to defend in the post. I ended up with 25 PTs with Kris, 18 with Enis & 13 with Timofey Mozgov off the bench.
He had no answer for my front court.


It might be sad but I take great pleasure in beating those types of players. For all I know, he could've been a little kid, but it was satisfying to beat his punk ass.

I've been playing this for like a month, my starting lineup is:

PG: Austin Rivers
SG: Jodie Meeks
SF: Gerald Green
PF: Steve Novak
C: Timofey Mozgov/Gordon Hayward.

Everybody I've played against has Steve Novak on their team. Dude is a beast with the 3's in this mode. My last game I went 15-22 from 3 with him. People just leave him open all the time for some reason, shit is nuts.

Funny- I beat a guy who chucked up 3s too.

His starting line-up was:

PG:Steph Curry
SG: Harden
SF: Gerald Green
PF: Steve Novak
C: Shaq




Final score was 73-35
