New to MyTeam? This is what it is
Let’s take a behind-the-scenes look at how players are selected for two of MyTeam’s most popular themes and packs…
In December, we launched a new 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 of MyTeam. That’s right, we’ve brought back some of MyTeam’s most influential gamer cards like Paul George’s NBA 2K15 Pink Diamond, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s epic 20th birthday card from NBA 2K19 and Michael Jordan’s Signature Limited Galaxy Opal (one rarest cards ever released in My Team).
We’ve also revisited several of our community’s favorite cards over the years, including Lonzo Ball’s Pink Diamond from the NBA 2K18 Pink Diamond Tournament and Andrei Kirilenko’s Diamond Lockdown from NBA 2K19. We’ve even brought back some awesome Ruby cards ranging from current players like Mo Bamba, Jonathan Isaac, and Thon Maker, to Kobe Bryant’s big card from NBA 2K15. Stars, niche favorites and everything in between. The first Retro 2K Volumes had a bit of everything, for everyone!
In the case of NBA 2K16 giant Sim Bhullar, or Isaac Bonga’s then rookie NBA 2K19 card, we made the decision to upgrade the abilities of certain cards from a specific bronze at the time to an NBA ruby. 2K21. Another series of cards where we ‘prick’ a card’s attribute notes is our aptly named Glitched Collection. Accompanying every Flash release in NBA 2K21’s MyTeam, these cards feature some fantastic elements, including great men like Rudy Gobert and Tim Duncan expanding their lineup, or Hall of Fame point guard John Stockton passing OVER the edge for spectacular highlights.
The ability to upgrade ALL badges on the card is unique to all Glitched cards. This means that you could theoretically upgrade your Glitched Diamond Zion Williamson to have all the Hall of Fame badges, if you could earn them all! The Glitched collection really allows us to see “What if?” questions come to life in MyTeam.
If you’ve played NBA 2K’s MyTeam before and want to see your favorite card make a comeback, let us know your wishlist! Tweet @ NBA2K_MyTeam or navigate to the Ask a Developer section in MyTeam’s Community Hub, we love to hear suggestions from our community.
That’s all of us for now. Keep playing MyTeam on PS5 for tons of new content coming to MyTeam Season 5!
