Manage your roster by using the Stretch Provision to minimize the Salary Cap when you waive a player, or develop younger talent in the G-League or by stashing them overseas.

NBA 2K18 reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Hello People or anyone who wants to Read. Have I once thought I would make a little Conclusion here about the NBA 2K18, When I started it I was thrilled with everything NBA 2k18 offers me, from movement to atmosphere, just Mega horny. But because I unpacked the MyPlayer mode with the Open-World (is a Lobby for all players) which was very great basketball where you see at first and from the small offside to the Road to 99 Hall of Famer it is really made great (but unfortunately your HoF). When I finally came into the World (the first 2-3 Hours Tutorial are) I had to quickly realize that the Level (Skill points) to generate extreme and I mean really very hard from Level 63 costs 1 skill point about 550, does not sound A lot about xD but the expensive mega to get 100 points (I have to play almost 30 min) and the other Players who are already 70 to 87 also have no lust to play together with you to make it easier to skill farming, who prefer to compete against you and thus Easy Wish because your MyPlayer can't even kick a football at the beginning you hit very little and score next to no points. Skill Points. Thus, the Levae is made extremely difficult to access. (Something else I have to Write for leveling, who has money can't treat the Pay2Win Enjoyment in full, you can buy 450,000 Skill points for 84 and thus be in advantage to everyone else, which is unfortunately a pity to do microtransactions In a Full-price game) Verdict: + Graphics + Control and Music or Sound + Very Many Teams (Michael Jorden is There) + Story MYPLAYER is Mega good-Skill you can buy (P2W in PvP)-Very Extreme slow Farms of Points-The 2KTV questions are in English although it could be German If you don't have Frucsis, let your fingers off it and you should assume that you should spend €19.99 on the MyPlayer without losing the lust, everyone else gets it to you the best NBA there is at the moment (Next YEAR xD) * * * That's My Personal Opinion What I have until I have now gained experience. * Update * Since I have made it to level 65 without Any Money, I have TO say I DEINSTALLIERE the game now, too bad for the Money when you buy it. * * Update2 * * I didn't uninstall it and continued to torment myself to Level 71 and with a new Character, which has now gone far from relaxing and easier from the very beginning. I've made one Basket after basket with my new one basket you could say "EASY" but it's just an OP class who would like to try it HERE the Confi as it's a lot 70% everyone else have. INFO: Position: Small Forward Primary Skill: Penetration and completion of Secondary skill: Fit and Ball Handling * tip * SIZE: 2.05 – 2.10 Meters Weight: 105 kg Wingspan: High (which still looks normal) * TIP * (Do you want to give your Throws a little more Weight, you must Replace ball handling with Throwing creation or 3-Point throws.)
