NBA 2K18 Will Not Feature the EuroLeague

2K’s exclusive multiyear partnership with the EuroLeague has come to an end. NBA 2K18 will not feature EuroLeague teams this year, after being featured in Play Now since NBA 2K14.

In a translated tweet, Euroleague is not in NBA 2K18. But the game will have many improvements and new content, such as 30 All-Time teams and 17 classic teams.

  1. Personally no more work than they put into the Euro rosters, and even the classic teams I dont know why they waste space for any of them I would much rather have G-League and it be playable. I did enjoy the Euro rosters after editing them to fix what they wouldnt do, so it does kind of suck they arent available.

    Well. That's unfortunate for you. But I can assure you, without even looking at the numbers they're looking at, that the classic teams are used far more frequently overall than the Euro teams. While basketball has certainly become a much more global game, the vast majority of 2K's sales are still in the US so naturally they'll cater to that market.

    Should've had some WNBA teams instead tbh

    Smh at whoever prefers to play basketball with girls instead of real men. Wnba? lol. In terms of quality that's like preferring to have the Pakistan basketball league instead of the nba
    Anyways, the euroleague rosters were absolutely trash, 0 effort into them. Players didn't have barely any skills and teams only had like the same 3 or 4 plays

    Women. Not 'girls.' Your post reeks of male elitism, so I'm not going to go into it too much. But I will say that NBA Live including the WNBA got my nieces excited enough to pre-order it. It matters, whether you think so or not. Gives little girls across the country women to look up to.
    I know I'd certainly use them over the Euro teams.

I'm european and I'm pissed off, but I can live with it as I really buy the game for the nba and the euroleague rosters were made with 0 effort so no big deal, but I still didn't like the move

    Not male elitism , just common sense. No woman league can compete with a men's league, much less with the euro league. Girls don't play 2k, and if they do , they are a tiny fraction of the total player base, like a 1% being generous. I guarantee you there are much more european guys who buy 2k every year and who probably didn't like at all having the euroleague removed.

    Girls are a small fraction of 2K players but if 2K paid more attention to female basketball there would be more of them. That's the next frontier for sure.
    Your teenage boy mentality is extremely short sighted. It's not about whether WNBA players are good or not, it's getting proper representation. Hate to break this to you kid but WNBA fans DO exist.
    It's not a matter of if women will be included in future 2K games, it's when.
    I don't care about GBs. It's a bad move to ommit the Euroleague and eurocup teams. At least we have myleague and the relocation system. Now if they ommit the ability to download custom logos shirts and courts, I would buy LIVE 18

    I don't think there are any relocation options outside North America. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    Not surprised. I kind of felt it trending this direction. Sucks nonetheless. We have draft and stash capability in MyLeague now though so I'm cool. I was ultimately hoping to see the Euroleague integrated into ML but that didn't look to be in the cards.

    If they put forth the effort into the classic teams rosters, I would be all about that, as considering I grew up in the 70's and 80's. But they do such a crappy job with ratings, and then giving us the same fake names to fill out those rosters, yet we cant fully edit them, and we have to then make CAP's. They need to make them fully editable, so we can just edit those fake players fully, instead of having to make a whole new CAP. From the sounds of it, we might actually be able to finally do that this yr, I assume thats what they meant by making all classic teams and all times team fully editable, but I also know 2k, and how they sometimes say things, then once you get the game, its not exactly how they said,lol.
    Its just my guess, but I think G-League and making it playable would probably garner more fans, than these all time teams. I enjoy the classic teams, once its heavily edited that is. But all time teams, I cant say I would find much enjoyment in having teams that arent realistic, especially when so many all time players are missing. For example Pacers all time team is such a joke with who they showed that was on it. No Clark Kellog, Roger Brown, Mel Daniels, Wayman Tisdale, etc. Majority of Pacers all time greats that 2k has, arent Pacer all time greats. I think they got George McGinnis. I get some guys like Reggie Miller dont care to be in the game, and thats there business. It just seems with so many all time greats missing, and replacing them with guys who werent all time greats from a franchise, just seems kind of stupid. Again if they are all fully editable, and you can change any player, for instance I can edit David West into Clark Kellog, without having to go thru CAP to do it, then I might feel differently about it, because then you can take, say a all team, and turn them into any team you want. But for some reason, I got a feeling, thats wont be possible, and you will have to go thru CAP, rather than just edit any player into who you want. Because my guess is they have stats for those guys, and I cant imagine you will be able to also edit the career stats. Maybe I miss read the article that talked about fully editing every player, which is entirely possible as well.
    Maybe Im in the minority, but having a good playable G-League, and/or expanding Euro teams, to where you could tie it all into your MyLeague would be something I think a lot of people would really get into.

    Some of those so called girls, your bashing, are pretty darn good basketball players. Tamika Catchings, Maya Moore, Candace Parker, etc, could hang with some of the guys.
    Over the years, I enjoyed watching Tamika Catchings just as much as I have with any NBA players.
    Thats fine, if you dont enjoy watching womans basketball, but dont bash them, they play every bit as hard as the guys do. Quite frankly with how soft the NBA has gotten during the regular season, Id say the WNBA actually plays a more physical brand of basketball.
    I do agree the Euro rosters were trash, as there was basically no effort put into them, they barely ever updated them, and even then they didnt have them fully correct. Thats why I said, if your not going to do right, then why waste the disc space, this goes for classic teams as well, the ratings are absolutley terrible for not just the Euro rosters, but the classic rosters, were almost as bad.
    I have nothing against the Euro teams, or even the classic teams, heck I grew up back in the 70's and 80's, so I enjoy playing with Bird, Magic, MJ, Jerry West, Big O, etc. I actually prefer those days to how the game is being played today in the NBA, as now days. But if your going to put them in the game, do it right, dont just throw some ratings together, and call it a day, I truly dont think they actually even look at any stats, or game footage of some of these guys. I think it was Mark Madsen, they had him with a high 3pt tendency, when he didnt shoot 3's:jpshakehe
    Quite a shame they never arsed to make Euroleague content properly and include it to the game modes. I had some big hope to start mycareer game on my favorite basketball club that is part of euroleague instead some US college, but it never gonna happen it seems.
    I agree that its better to get rid of them than put same "effort" as before though. More classic teams big question mark as well to me, if they just add few star players with generic CAPS like bunch of classic teams currently then its as good as nothing.

    Lol dont associate yourself with common sense lol you sound ignorant tbh
    Eurolegue teams with good updated rosters and some playable modes in game would rise the sales a lot than 2k could imagine i hope it'll be back.. Otherwise America is not enough and never will be 2k! ;)

    I’d love to see you play one of these “girls” one on one and get absolutely scorched.
    NBA live include the WNBA and I have many female friends and cousins who love to ball that instantly pre-ordered.
    The ignorance in this post is astounding.

    I'm sure I'm in the tiny tiny minority, but I don't like the NBA and was only interested in playing with European teams or with created teams. I haven't watched NBA in years and I know Euroleague teams from football. So this is a shame for me. 
    I actually don't mind this. You can keep the dream team tho but don't use any more resources on team usa etc. Get the gameplay and the 30 other teams right first.

    Yeah.. Sorry man. I don't think NBA2K would ever not prioritize the NBA and it's fans. Bummer they're gone. But. It is an NBA game, and they were always just bonus content.
    Neither interest me, but the euro league makes more sense than the wnba. Going Global makes more sense than catering to a niche. That said, I had no use for it, so I won't miss it.

    The Euroleague would have made more sense if it had actually been incorporated into MyLeague/MyCareer. As it was, just a bunch of teams sitting there, the WNBA would have made just as much sense.

    Its the WNBA so technically it "makes more sense" to have another ACTUAL NBA product as part of the game. Just to debunk this narrative.
    The Euro teams were the epitome of a "niche" add on to the game lol what?
    Very bad news, it's a shame, Euroleague deserves some respect.
    Teodosic, Bogdanovic, Saric, Bender... they came from Euroleague, it's not a trash league.
    I don't buy NBA 2K this year

    Lol nobody used them. They have the numbers on how many people use them and obviously it wasn't enough to warrant keeping them around. Sorry dude. But that's the reality. You won't find them in Live either.

    just like nobody uses the poorly made classic teams . If rest of the roster used to be made like euro teams, then nobody would hear of nba 2k18.
