Tips & Tricks
-At First, Putting Players In Their Right Positions Is Everything.
For those who are also NBA fans, you can’t expect to get good results if you play Kristaps Porzingis at point guard, or if you’re starting Stephen Curry at center. In other words, you should be mindful of each player’s preferred position, and make sure you’re assigning them to that position. Doing so would give you a nice statistical boost that could maybe even turn the tide in a game, and you can also benefit from additional energy if you’re playing playoff matches. Those positions are there for a reason. Don’t overlook this aspect of My NBA 2K19, especially in the early goings.
-The secret to winning a game in NBA 2K19 is to not ball hog, just pass the ball around until there’s an opening and push for it and call for the pass. You are guaranteed a easy dunk or layup.
-The most important thing to do in NBA 2K19 when it comes to earning VC is to not spend it on clothing, hair, or tattoos. The best thing to do in this situation is to spend it all on upgrading your character in all areas.
-Defending and blocking can sometimes be tricky if you don’t know how to do it right. The proper way to defend is to not spam the steal or block/jump button too early or too many times, because you can cause a foul and two easy freethrows for the attacking team. The right way is to stay up close to them and jump when they’re starting to jump, usually if you’re the same height as the shooter you can block the shot, but if you foul him it’s usually for the best and you’ll receive a good foul.
-Stamina can be an issue in NBA 2K19 if you have a really long play time (or if you set the game time to 12 minutes each quarter), the best thing to do is to call a timeout (depends on what you use the button will always be different, check the keybindings for instructions). When you call a timeout, you’ll be put onto the bench for a while, your stamina will regenerate and you’ll be set for the rest of the match/quarter.
-Log In Every Day, Even For A Few Minutes.
It’s important that you’re logging into the game at least once a day. Even if you don’t have enough time to play an actual game, logging in even for a few quick minutes (or seconds, for that matter) will be good enough so that you can redeem your daily login reward, which comes in the form of a free card pack. If you log in four days straight, you get a guaranteed Uncommon or Rare player. Logging in for eight days straight will get you a guaranteed Rare, with a chance of getting an Ultra Rare. And if you’re patient enough and log in for a good 20 days straight, you get anywhere from Ultra Rare to Elite guaranteed! In short — keep logging in daily so you could do away with those common cards sooner rather than later.
If you miss out on buying a certain pack, you can spend about 100 coins for that, although the costs could sometimes get prohibitive. As such, be sure you’re logging in — it doesn’t matter how long you stay logged in, just as long as you’re working toward getting better daily rewards! Remember, though, that once a new month starts, your progress gets reset. As far as the current month goes, you should start your daily login streak no later than October 12 if you want to get the 20-day reward, because come November 1, you’re going back to square one.
