    Just played a 104 OVR team in classic that already has MVP KG. GTFO how is that possible. How much did this guy have to spend to get him so quickly? Ugh. Also, ITP when the AI is using it seems difficult to stop. KG slammed it in my face twice that quarter even though I knew it was coming and had Dirk camping in the paint both times with well timed block attempts.

    Finally sold the big shaqtus but only for 9.5M. It looks like I lost out on up to 2.5M by waiting, based on the early BINs - should’ve parted ways with him this morning as my gut had told me to do!

     So far I don’t see much of a downgrade on manual from switching to mash from 99 bird. We’ll see what the AI scores look like over time the next day or two, but so far it’s promising. I mainly used bird to jack up threes because he was such a sure bet even with a non-perfect release, and mash is filling in admirably in that role. 

     

    I know there could be better PG cards than Bb Simmons or nightmare magic on the horizon, but that’s the biggest deficiency in my NBA lineup at the moment, so I am fiending for an upgrade at that spot. Until that happens, I haven’t been playing with that lineup at all, choosing to use classic instead, but I’d like to be able to go back to NBA eventually.

    @anatdoc: I haven’t trained bird and I see his value is pretty strong right now, listing for ~15M starting bid and 20M BIN. Hard to part with him because he’s such a stud, but I suppose mash could tide me over till a better classic SF option emerges. I also see Bb Simmons sold in my AH just now for 15M BIN, which are the sorts of pickups that elude me due to shortage of coins. Tough one, still.

     Imo Bb Simmons is a great pick up but I don't think it's a must have at this point in the season.. why don't u see how ur showdown goes with mash for a day or two and then decide

     If your daily threshold is 1 hour, mine is 2. I’ll typically play around 30 matches per day, winning 50%-60%. Depending on whether I have the fan bonus any given week or not, I’ll end up in the top 250 or, at worse, top 500. Playing more than 2 hours is not possible for me, so I won’t go harder than that to keep up with the jones’s, regardless of the prize or the fan bonus incentive. IMO, SD - with all of its blemishes - is still the most interesting part of the game to me, so I’m happy spending my time on that until something changes for the better.

     

    that said, with SD reward players no longer being auctionable, I’ve decided to scale back my time investment to reach the legend tier and then the top 1,000, then call it quits. There isn’t a big enough gap between the top 1,000 reward and the top 250 reward to warrant the additional hours anymore. 

    Quote from TheUncleDrew >>

    How do you guys play that much showdown.  Is it really worth it?  I usually play to superstar for the week and quit.  It's too time consuming.  Even on a free night, 8pm nothing to do, sit down with a drink and play til about 9 and quit.  Can't go more than that.  The game doesn't have any aspect that makes me want to play longer, it's the same thing over and over again. button mash, rebound, occasional dunk/layup, shoot threes repeat.  meh...

     I sold him as soon as I earned him but in terms of AI, I’ve found his game play to be true to stevie franchise’s real game. He zips around where he pleases with great handles, and I find him relatively hard to steal from. Harder than against guys like GP or Steve Nash, for example. Just my two cents.

    Quote from trapstarisu >>

    Is that Steve Francis card good? Any reviews?

     I feel you... my priority was to make coin as  I have my sights set on a few other players like nightmare magic. But I find big Aristotle to be quite enjoyable to play with so far. Same time, I don’t want to miss the boat to sell him for max value.

    Quote from TheUncleDrew >>

    I'm struggling hard with whether I should sell him or not, such a hard decision

    I didn’t play in s1, and I just tried shaq out for the first time - damn, ITP is a pretty fun ability! Some have said ITP tends to miss or get blocked a lot. Is this true? I actually wouldn’t mind that it miss occasionally, as I feel even clutch abilities shouldn’t be the 99% success rate or whatever that it is. Now I’m on the fence about selling him.

    And one sold for 12.8M BIN. I see he’s been sniped for 5.2M as well. Decisions decisions!

    Best price to sell him? I see he just sold for 11.2M BIN in my auction house. I’d be okay with that but is that a conservative amount, y’all think?

    I’m tuning out the shaq/award winner debacle while it - hopefully - works itself out, as there’s nothing I can add that hasnt already been said on here. 

     

    What are the chances that mash becomes auctionable? Is there any precedent that might suggest this is even a possibility at this point? Or have non-auctionable players always remained as such? My dilemma is, although 98 mash really is a monster, I don’t have room for him as 99 bird and maxed UL pippen are holding down the 3 for me. Is anyone else considering just using him for TP??

     Same here. It wasn’t hard to get ~60 ballots per day just by playing live events for the first time, doing daily objectives, and redeeming store packs. And getting 7-8 hours of sleep. I did have to ramp up the efforts the last 2.5 days to get the balance I needed and had to divert all my stamina to the events, but I didn’t spend any nba cash or coins or anything.

    i picked all 5 correct but there was just no way being f2p that i was gonna get all 6:(  hopefully as has been said there will be some exchange or something.

     I'm F2P and got all 6 and I didn't even play the second day. 
     +1. I'm f2p.. haven't even spent on stamina refills .. got all 6 plus Brad Stevens and have extra 45 tokens rt now.. it takes a lot of time and grinding but it's possible

     I hope you’re right about the shaq thing as my immediate goal is to flip him for maximum coin. The fewer shaqs out there, the better my outlook. On the other hand, I wouldn’t put it past EA to offer some store packs for the missing winner collectibles for 2,000, 5,000 10,000 nba cash or $30 (USD) or something stupid like that. Since when should we expect EA to do anything logical except what is in their best interests to line pockets? As it stands, I think I’ll flip him immediately in case the door is still open to get shaq.

    Quote from TheUncleDrew >>

    As i thought about it this morning and saw that the first awards event has disappeared, the update should come in a couple hours.  Award players will not be upgradable (Harden, Gobert etc.)  The title of their cards are award nominees.  They will likely just come out with new sets or packs in the store to get Award Winners.  Rather than them put something together really quick after the awards show, they are doing it right and taking some heat while they get it done, which is fine by me.  TOTW player will come during the update as well.  I'm good with that.  No option for Shaq will be available to those who picked wrong, I'm sure of that.  I'm looking forward to maintenance.  In the meantime, claim your free bonus pack in the store to complete the objective but don't waste your time on getting ballet collectibles unless you want them for TP's.

    @alexmi: cool, well then considering harden has played some point guard when cp3 was on the bench this season, switching those duties with Gordon, I’d hope they release him as a PG. they’ve released other cards throughout the season at the players’ off positions like lebron and Giannis at PG, so maybe it’s in the cards? Only downside from EA’s perspective is there’d be dupe studs at that position in Simmons, and we know how much EA loves to pimp the Simmons cards.

    Whoops got my counts mixed up, right Lou - and I forgot about Simmons at PG, so there’s that option. Assuming MVP harden will be a better card than master clutch harden, EA would be cannabilizing itself as I’m sure people are still pursuing master harden and would give up that pursuit because he’s not auctionable. Did S1 have harden at PG, considering he played that position mostly last year? That flexibility would be great, because master harden still gets the job done for me and I’m not anxious to replace him.
