NBA 2K League Qualifying Takes Place From January 1 - January 31, Details Here

NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue has announced the NBA 2K League Qualifier, which is the first step for prospective players to try out for the league.

The first stage of qualifying for the NBA 2K League will take place from Jan. 1-31, 2018.

Qualifying Components:

  • Players need to win 50 games in NBA 2K18’s Pro-Am mode and complete an online application by January 31

o   Players can compete as a walk-on, part of a team or a combination

o   Pro-Am mode is played 5-on-5

o   Winning more than 50 games does not increase a player’s standing

  • Players who meet these requirements in January can be invited to the next round of tryouts in February

Additional information:

  • The January qualifying stage is open to anyone around the world who has a copy of NBA 2K18 (PlayStation 4 or Xbox One) and is 18 or older

  • After the final round of tryouts in February, the best players will be selected for the draft which will take place in March
  • Each of the 17 teams participating in the inaugural season will draft five players who will live in-market during the season
  • The season tips off in May 2018, with games taking place in one or two central studios for the inaugural season

  1. This should be Team Pro AM only imo. Walk On doesn't prove anything. I understand everybody doesn't have a 5 to run with but you're doing yourself a disfavor running solo in Walk ON anyways. Definitely wanna see how this plays out though.

    It's unfortunate, but terrible metas making the game look bad on a national stage is the best way for sports games to get the resources necessary to make serious improvements in the gameplay.

    And for the few instances where you don't get a blowby animation after turboing directly into your defender's body, all you have to do is flick your right joystick down for an easy snatchback pullup jumper that will either trap the defender in an ankle breaker animation or create enough shooting space for a deadeye badge "green bean."

    Ive watched a lot of the so called best elite pro am teams recently on twitch etc. It was boring to watch. All the teams do is having a "dribble gawd" PG flickjumping around at the top of the key, getting a screen from the C, waiting for the opportunity to fakedrive inside because they are looking to kick it out to one of the three sharpshooters anyway. Ive seen so many spots where I thought why dont you just make layup, youve beaten your man. No team basketball at all. Ive yet to see someone else than the PG trying to create something. If this will be the meta the eleague wont get much attention outside the community itself.

    just remember this is just qualifications for Tryouts. if this is the official nba/nba2k esport league then more than likely teams will sign individual players and then those teams will form based on which real nba team they have signed with.
