New to MyTeam? Here’s what it’s all about
Let’s go behind the scenes at how players are selected for two of MyTeam’s most popular themes and packages.
In December we introduced a never-before-seen set in MyTeam, Retro 2K. We have published two volumes of these collections; Each with a unique combination of players, inspired by cards from previous years on MyTeam. Right, we’ve brought some of the most influential player cards back to MyTeam, like Paul George’s NBA 2K15 Pink Diamond, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s epic NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary card, and Michael Jordan’s Signature Limited Galaxy Opal (one of the rarest cards ever released) My team).
We’ve also revisited many of our community’s favorite maps over the years, including Lonzo Balls Pink Diamond from the NBA 2K18 Pink Diamond Tournament and Andrei Kirilenko’s Lockdown Diamond from NBA 2K19. We even brought back great Ruby cards from current players like Mo Bamba, Jonathan Isaac and Thon Maker onto the great Kobe Bryant card from NBA 2K15. Stars, niche favorites and everything in between. The first retro 2K volumes had something of everything for everyone!
In the cases of the giant Sim Bhullar from NBA 2K16 or Isaac Bonga’s then inexperienced NBA 2K19 card, we decided to upgrade the capabilities of some cards from a contemporary bronze to an NBA 2K21 Ruby. Another line of cards where we “perturb” a card’s attribute ratings is our aptly named “Glitched” collection. To accompany every NBA 2K21 Flash release in MyTeam, these cards contain elements of fantasy, including great men like Rudy Gobert and Tim Duncan expanding their reach, or Hall of Fame Point Guard John Stockton, who is responsible for spectacular highlights across the world Edge goes.
Unique to all Glitched cards is the ability to update ALL badges on the card. That said, you could theoretically upgrade your Glitched Diamond Zion Williamson to get all of the Hall of Fame badges if you could earn them all! The Glitched collection really allows us, “What if?” To see. Questions come to life in MyTeam.
If you’ve played a previous NBA 2K MyTeam and want your favorite card to return, share your wishlist with us! Tweet @ NBA2K_MyTeam or click the Ask a Developer section in the MyTeam Community Hub. We look forward to suggestions from our community.
That’s all of us for now. Keep playing MyTeam on PS5 for tons of new content in MyTeam Season 5!
