Get ready to ball out, card style. Cat Daddy Games and 2K Sports have brought hoops back to mobile with My NBA 2K18, which serves as a companion app to the NBA 2K18 console game but also contains a standalone card game called MyTeam Mobile.
As in previous years, the object is to put together the best team of current NBA players and all-time greats from a selection of player cards. With over 300 new cards for the 2017-18 season, you’re sure to find some of your favorites included, and there are different rarity levels of many of them.
True superstars like LeBron James can only be found in the higher tiers, so that begs the question: how do you obtain rare players in My NBA 2K 18? There are more ways than ever this season, so let’s break them all down.
Spin the Wheel
In Head 2 Head mode, you’ll also fins Champion’s Choice Spinners among the card draft prizes. These spinners include a number of different goodies among their spaces, and you are guaranteed to get one of them every time you get to spin.
To get better Spinners, simply keep playing Head 2 Head mode as often as possible and work your way up the leaderboard. You’ll automatically get a chance at better Spinners as you do.
Log In Daily
What mobile game doesn’t give out daily rewards to incentivize people to come back and play often? Hardly any at this point, and My NBA 2K18 certainly is no exception.
Just by logging in every day before midnight GMT, you’ll check one day off the game’s calendar. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a reward pack, and the card contained within gets better with every new pack level reached.
This is actually one of the best ways to ensure yourself of getting rare players who can bump up your team’s overall rarity quickly, so if you’re enjoying the game, you definitely want to play daily if at all possible.
Bonus Tip: Miss a day on the daily rewards calendar? You can buy it by spending 100 Credits, the game’s premium currency. Speaking of which.
Just Buy Them
My NBA 2K18 is free to play, but you can buy in-game currency called Credits in exchange for real money. If you decide to go that route, you can then tap the ‘Store’ tab on the game’s main navigation bar and choose from a number of different packs.
The selection changes and sometimes includes special limited time offers, so be sure to save your Credits for the best looking deal. But in general, the more expensive packs will have the best chances for rare players up to and including Elite cards, so this is certainly a viable way to make your team better in a hurry if spending real money is something you’re willing to do.
