    How in the hell did you get the coins for that lineup in a week? That's pretty good man.

    Quote from baileyessr0gs >>

     Honestly, if I had KD I’d only let him take the 3 clutch shots, and then I’d spread the other shots around my team, including master harden and even showdown wall and embiid. 

     
     That's exactly what I do & I play really well with that lu. (Magic, Master Harden, Bosh, Mutombo)
    If Durant is wide open I'll take another 3 but I have plenty of ppl to shoot with. I will say that when I got Durant I def WASNT blown away by him & I'm still not. Nightmare Magic performs far better for me in terms of reliability

    I have a question; the 100 showdown titans are unauctionable and require shards to level up, not tp. Imma get one cause I'll be able to , but I can't use them to train any other cards, right?

     kD can't be used on players last time I checked but I haven't heard anything about the Titans being able to be used for TP so I think as of now 100s can't be used as TP
     
     That's a very BIG problem if so. I don't have e a problem training my starters or even bench bc I know I can put that TP into a replacement. But if I can't do that for any of the players I get from now on, shoooot.

    A McHale w great stats would be sweet. Don't really want/ need a PG for either lu since I have both Magic cards & good bench. But I have 3 95s so we'll see what I get. This is coming tomorrow, yes?

    I don't see how they can ban every person who has sold a gold for high prices. Ppl that don't even know about it are guilty of it bc it's the bot doing it.

    Hey man, nice work. But we're all going from experience, not being know-it-alls. It's a market. People buy cards for way over market price sometimes bc they don't care what they've gotta pay. Maybe we were right, maybe we were wrong. In the end, you got your coins so it's all good

    Payton is tough to steal from and so is Baron unless I have a big OVR advantage. Then I can pick him apart. I have trouble with Nash's AI but I haven't used him. Hes real squirrelly and is good at getting space to.get his shot. I'm using maxed MM Magic & love him. The overall defensive ability is money. Steals & blocks all day. Plus his deep shot and inside ability are great. Just love him.

    Yeah we all pay in one way or another in this rat race, whether it’s with our money or our time. For some of us, it might make more sense to spend money to accelerate progress, while others might prefer to grind it out with blood, sweat and tears. I spent money on nba cash packs to get more stamina for the royalty events, and I also purchased the base MM cards in the store to ultimately land MM magic. In retrospect, I wish I hadn’t spent any money at all, and don’t plan to open my wallet again for this game. WIth all of the bugs and head scratchers in gameplay and such, it ended up being a poor investment for me, and ive had serious buyers remorse. 

     
     I've def learned my lesson but the one time I DID spend $ again was for MM Magic. .99? That's no big deal. I waste that much in lost change every month

    I have Nightmare Magic and 99 Curry, and I spent much of last week's Showdown swapping between the two trying to determine which I was more successful with.  I found that I consistently scored better on manual with Curry.  I found that defensively (again on manual), there just wasn't that much difference between the two, so having another high-level 3-point shooter on offense helped me generate more points. 

     

    As for AI, I did not see a difference in terms of points allowed between the two.   While there is obviously fluctuation from game to game, I did not notice a significant difference in my AI's scoring margin between the two.  I'd play roughly 10 games with one, then the next 10 games with the other.  Since my AI was not demonstrably better or worse between the two, I've defaulted to playing more with Curry to help increase my manual scoring margin.

     What's ur ovr like.. I find it pretty interesting that there is no difference between ur matches with magic and curry.. unless u have a high ovr then it would make sense to some extent..
     
     
     I'm curious about him saying there was little difference DEFENSIVELY. Curry has never been a def beast and I've heard no diff regarding 99 Curry. But Magic is pretty good defensively. He can steal well, stay on his defender, and block. His height is pretty important. Just seems strange to me that on manual he doesn't see much difference
     
    Magic was slightly better than Curry defensively due to his height, but Curry is no slouch when it comes to steals.  In any event, point guards never seem to be the focus of the opposing AI's offense; most of their points come from offensive rebounds and/or Dwight Howard/Dikembe Mutombo shooting fadeaway threes that somehow qualify as "post shots" (and thus go in due to their "high rating" ... smh).  
    Given that, I just don't have a serious need for a lock-down PG defender of Magic's size.  Does it help generally?  Of course.  But I've found that defensively you can only do so much, and against higher OVR they are going to score nearly at will.  The defensive side of the ball is just so inconsistent game to game.  So for me at least, I've found I can have a more consistent impact on my win/loss ratio by focusing on the offensive side.  While that fluctuates a bit as well, it doesn't seem quite as wildly inconsistent game to game as defense is.
     
     Part of focusing on your offense is getting turnovers & that's where the lockdown PG comes in. Although stealing ability is more important than straight up d skills

    After looking at his maxed stats......damn. He looks worth it WITHOUT clutch at all.

    I'm prob 20 mil deep and still.need 2 95s. I haven't been super sniping but I've been getting cards at good prices. I don't think there's any possible way to do it for what you have. 99s prices are dropping lower & lower and that's NOT gonna help you to keep the process going. I wouldn't try bc if you can't get all the tokens, you're hosed

     

    I got 6.2 mil for Curry tonight, 4.4 mil for Love, 3 mil for Wilt, before taxes. I got some good sells. Right now there are much cheaper bids on all 3 cards in my AH

    WOW. So I picked up Curry and he is actually pretty good on D. He's so quick that he just stabs the ball out and no problems keeping up with the ball handler. I played against maxed out DS Kyrie and maxed FI Simmons & he totally held his own. Couple that with the ability to DRAIN it from anywhere & I'm impressed. I still love Magic so I'm selling Curry but he is a blast to play with

    Agree! Magic AI is quite annoying when I use my Kyrie coz he simply challenge my 3pt shot regularly with his ling stretched arms. 
     
     He's talking about defense when he's controlling the PG manually, not playing against them. That's why I found it interesting bc I feel like Magic is great on def, don't see how Curry could compete

    I had Embiid & sold him. Didn't like him as much as Mutombo. Maxed UL Howard is on the bench & has stayed there. Mutombo is super solid, can go end to end & he can shoot outside if I need him to. If he's open, he'll bomb 3's for me. Between him & UL Bosh, I get several blocks per game so I'm happy with my post defense

     I have Duncan I and love the defensive gameplay but there are situations when I miss the three ball, is it worth picking up Bosh over him? 
     
     Haven't played w Duncan, heard great things though, but Bosh is def worth it to me. I use him so much in transition but knowing I can pretty much count on him when I need long range shots is priceless. I don't shoot too many 3's with him, just when i need to spread it out or guys are missing

    In my AH, all the 95s are pretty much around 4 mil. 99 Curry is selling for less than your Bird. Gotta check out similar cards. Just bc one is posted for 10 mil doesn't mean anyone would pay that. I'm fairly good at selling my high cards for what I want on the first shot, so I don't think I'm talking outta place. Need to be good at understanding the market. Everyone wants to make profit so not everything you see is ever gonna sell
