On Friday, 2K unveiled the details for Season 2 in NBA 2K21’s MyTeam.
This Season is particularly interesting because it will bleed into the release of the next-gen consoles in November, and it also marks the second month the mode has functioned like a live service.
The Top Prize
A Pink Diamond Blake Griffin card is the Level 40 Grand Prize this season. He follows the Steph Curry card that held the post as the top reward for Season 1.
MyTeam is delivering a new mode and its called Triple Threat Challenfes. It’s a single-player experience where you face three all-time greats with players from your collection.
The matches have different win conditions and challenge rules with specific rewards that can be used in any mode in MyTeam. At the start of Season 2, there will be 10 TTC games. If you complete all of the challenges, you will earn a player who is making their debut in MyTeam. The first one will be a Diamond Rafer Alston.
MyTeam Limited is Back
Attaining the Lakers-inspired rings will be easier, thanks to community feedback, and even after you attain the requisite rings for this experience, there will be multiple rewards still available.
There is also an additional task/challenge called “Win the Weekend.” It falls in line with the Agendas, and if you attain all of the benchmarks, you earn more XP over the weekend in every mode.
Tons of New Rewards
In addition to the PD Griffin and Diamond Alston, there will be a Diamond Victor Oladipo for users who compile 450 Triple Threat Offline wins. The new Collection for this Season is called Next is Now, and grabbing each of the rewards attached to the series will earn you a Pink Diamond J.R. Smith.
The Level 1 Free Agent card is next-gen cover athlete Zion Williamson, with Luka Doncic, Rui Hachimura, Trae Young and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander becoming available later as you level up with XP.
New Signature Challenge
Vince Carter is the subject of this Season’s Signature Challenge. You have to match or exceed his 42-point performance from 2006 to earn 15 tokens and a Hall-of-Fame Slashing badge.
There’s also a new Vince Carter locker code.
Enter this to get the Carter card you’ll need for the challenge:
As I mentioned above, this Season spills into the release of the next-gen systems, and 2K reiterated in their blog that all collections will transfer over to the new consoles.
This will be an interesting month for every mode and 2K sub community.
