  1. I didn't even know this was an app in the first place. I'm assuming there's nothing I can use it for in MyLeague, which is probably why I don't know about it.

    "We're excited to announce @kporzee as the #MyNBA2K18 cover athlete! @MyNBA2K is back & packed with new, improved features for fans to enjoy! "
    What new features would you like to see ?

    I miss the 2k13 app where it wasn't just card games, there were more things to do on the app to get VC. I want to see more types of games on the app.
    What i want to see is similar to the Live app where after you scan the face it shows you a render of the face. This way we know exactly how it will look before we start.
    My guess is that it will be released Thursday or Friday.
    Every single year they've lowered how much Vc you can earn that matching card game. There were once 500 vc cards. Now you're lucky to get 500 total on most days. Here's to hoping that the highest card value isn't 200 now (became 250 Last year)

    Subtle greed is real. I'm pretty sure you are right and they will find a way to give us less VC. It has become a pattern now.
    Doesn't sound like anything has changed as far as app all besides look of cards and probably layout. I miss the old apps where they had mini games. But this will still be good to get Quick VC without having to pay for it.
    I would think they have released this app on Friday. I thought it would have been a good idea the day after event in NYC and week before the Prelude. But the day before Prelude isn't bad either. I doubt they show the face render, but I do hope it is alot better. One thing Live does better is the Face Scan. It was so much easier and came out great fairly quickly.

    VC eventually won't be an issue. Just keep playing and keep earning.

    Correct. You can actually earn enough VC to buy your team in MyGM mode after 58 games.
    And that's not counting the 100 VC bonus you get for winning a game!

    Exactly, bro! Right now I have around 170k sitting around but 2K18 is right around the corner. It eventually become useless.
    But during the early months I also grind with the mobile apps. Hahaha

    I plan on grinding with the mobile app as well. I did so last 2 years. Even though I am 100% buying NBA 2k18, I don't plan on buying it until around Black Friday time. So, I will spend those time period from when the app drops until I buy the game. I will be able to farm a ton of VC in over 2 months and wont feel guilty like buying VC.

    Yes! Farm, farm, farm! Make sure you join (or create) a team to get more moolah during events.
    Lol I pretty much earned all my vc from the app, playing games, and nba2ktv #FARM. I have racked up 100's of thousands in vc every year using those methods and in turn not having to come out of my pocket for money, but then again when I play the game starting off it doesn't bother me that myplayer isn't rated an 85+ in the beginning lol

    Lol yes. Last year, I started doing those events heavy lol. Farming is the way to go. Last few years, I bought some VC just to get started. But since I don't plan on buying the game right away, I can save up thousands of VC. On the average day, you can get at least 800-1000VC on the app just by quick games. Then with events and the like, you can rack up VC. So If I wait it out like I plan too, I could have over 50-60K VC before I even start without having to spend a dime
    Don't know if its technologically possible, but I'd love for them to figure out a way where the app can be used to set rotations, edit game plans, and all the other minutiae that goes along with trying to complete a MyLeague or MyGM season.

    App wil be out on the 7th, they did remove the MyPlayer app for 2k17 from the google playstore though, so maybe they drop it early

    2K17 is also removed from iOS.
    THANK GOODNESS WE HAVE YET ANOTHER FREE WAY TO EARN VC FOR THOSE EXPEEEEEEEEEENSIVE HAIRCUUUUUUUTS WEEKS BEFORE THE GAME EVEN RELEASES. Can't believe I don't even have to play the game now to unlock things. Just swipe a few cards on my phone and I get the loot I need.
