It's been because the invention of the NBA 2K21 MT Coins area. MyTeam needs game modes, also MyCareer has been because the invention of the area. I never actually played draft champs because it has ever been simple to compile a nice team. CPU defense can be dealt with by me I needed to conquer the Bird and Curry challenges. Cheesers / Spammers / Glitchers make ANY game not fun. I guess it's all taste on which you would rather deal with in the end of the day lol.
In Mut I thought,"I'm going to learn how to utilize all the right plays based on the opponent's line up and patterns and strengths and weaknesses." It was 3 plays - corner paths FB dive, or elongate runs. On defense it was a mix but mostly ended up being setting up soft squats and picking the corner routes and usering to stuff the run or bulge the recipients. In 2K it is essentially mitigating the CPU's idiocy with a mix of off-ball and on-ball so you are able to intercept passes, block a lane to the basket, or just keep your man from idiotically double-teaming somebody (at least TTO). Once in a while someone begins to post-cheese or something and you are in a catch 22.
If you on-ball then a team-mate WILL help you, if you off-ball they'll stand there to leave a open. I prefer 2K though since there's more action on the sticks general, whereas madden is about pre-play. Why would they do this if they can squeeze more dollars out of every kid that got hooked on launching packs watching twitch? Well Im not saying give us LESS packs. They could drop the number of cards / packs to make the same quantity of money.
Drop them more frequently earlier. That way end game cards may be used for over a month. I honestly believe they can earn more money like that. Later in the past packs that are super can Cheap MT NBA 2K21 drop / evo packs / and duo packs to improve sales on previously published cards. Like I said, I'm not purchasing VC this overdue in NBA 2K21, but had a few of those cards dropped I would have.
