MyLeague appears to have received nearly zero upgrades.

  • The aim-meter mechanic is actually hard to master, but has already led to some quite satisfying one-on-one isolation successes. It's nice having the ability to use the ideal stick exclusively as a dribbling tool until I'm ready to pull back to get a shot. The ability to size-up, which is tied to NBA 2K21 MT unique dribbling animations for lots of the top players in the league, and isolate is much far better than ever. I spent a couple of hours experimenting with different playstyles, like easing the pick-and-roll with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. It's tremendously rewarding to use Doncic's size and footwork to create space - something that I could not replicate with other guards on the group, such as Seth Curry. While it isn't entirely new, NBA 2K21's ability to entertain gamers' playstyles is exceptional this season.

    Nevertheless, there are a couple annoying gameplay problems I have come across, also. Fastbreaks seem marginally improved, but player spacing is still clearly off. For instance, even my best three-point shooters will track inside the three-point line on fast breaks when they'd be better off locating space in the corner. Generally, it feels like NBA 2K21 hasn't completely adapted to the accent contemporary NBA basketball has put on the three-point line. Quick catch-and-shoots are not as prevalent as they should be, and closing out remains far too simple on protection.

    Likewise frustrating is that the CPU's ability to create difficulties for itself. It served as a jarring reminder I was not, in fact, experiencing a real game of NBA basketball.

    From a cursory glance, MyLeague appears to have received nearly zero upgrades. The mode has a decent set of features built into it , but this is the second year in a row with no striking improvements. As somebody who loves to deep-dive into franchise building, it is really disappointing that there's so little effort being placed into the manner.

    Thankfully, MyTeam has ditched its horrible casino aesthetic out of this past year. Make no mistake, though -- even though it looks different, it seems heavily determined by microtransactions and purchasing packs. Like I said in last year's inspection, it's clear that MyTeam's central goal is to extract as much cash as you're willing to MT for sale 2K21 give up so as to avoid having to grind out mundane challenges to advancement, and it does not seem anything has changed in this department.
