⁣That is where virtual currency (VC) comes into play from Bestmengqin's blog

Matching up for matches in The Neighborhood stays the same--it can be a slog, waiting for gamers to MT 2K22 queue up along with the match to cycle through all the pre- and post-game animations. I find the Rec's 5-on-5 games much more satisfying with appropriate matchmaking (given that teams are balanced in skill and rankings ), and you can take this basketball ethos a step further in the coordinated Pro-Am league. But enjoyment from these competitive outlets relies on the players you get paired with, and also how much your player has progressed in order to maintain up.


That is where virtual currency (VC) comes into play, yet again. It's not surprising the microtransactions litter every corner of NBA 2K21--and for me personally, I've moved on from being outraged to feeling despondent. The game boundaries on a pay-to-win model, with progress tracks that are paced in methods to nudge you towards paying for VC instead of making it.


Improving your stats still relies on paying VC, and the costs increase exponentially the further you upgrade a certain skill. There are loads of nice makeup to earn, and it's true a whole lot of fun dressing up your player in fresh kicks as well as the flyest Nike and Adidas apparel, however their exorbitant VC costs suck the life out of the adventure.


VC permeates the MyTeam mode again, too. This mode acts as a fantasy-esque build-your-own-team endeavor where you earn card packs to unlock players among a roster that spans numerous NBA eras. MyTeam can be captivating for long-time basketball fans such as myself who have Allen Iverson teamed up with Anthony Davis and may take this fantasy team roster into single-player or multiplayer games.


However, the loot-box character of earning card packs--that can be acquired by slowly earning MT points via new avenues such as challenges, seasonal events, and turning into Buy 2K MT useless cards, or by buying them together with VC--makes the dependence on VC unsurprisingly egregious.
