I had to go with Kaminsky being a UW Badger alum myself.
I’m wondering how this lock in for Kareem is going to work. They’re saying he’s a lock in for “inserts” that will be in packs over the 3 week event. I have a feeling these inserts will be unauctionable too. What are people going to do if people pull dupes of the same inserts? Seems really scammy if that’s how they’re going to try to force people to pull packs now. What else, VC only packs as well?
There is definitely something wrong with those running 2K now. The only smart way to get Kareem is through buying MT. Even with that, he will only be good for a few weeks at most. Between the Galactic events and the new takeovers, it is easy to have a really great set of Diamonds. If any, there are too many diamonds. However, none of the limited events seem to focus on this tier. Getting Herro was too easy and they are still giving easy XP out, but seem to have given up on any beyond 40 targets.
Worse news I got is that my son says he still wants 2K24 although he never plays 2K23 anymore. I am trying to convince him otherwise as I really want this game to end. I am still addicted to finishing every new challenge so he has every player he may want, but at this point I do not know why I keep doing it.
In general the idea of having Domination games being only 1 5-minute quarter is actually one of the few good ideas that 2K had this year. Even getting a very reasonable Diamond player (several actually look very usable) is not bad. The only place they really screwed up was the final prize of an Opal that really does not excite 99.9% of the 2K population considering what is already available both in the market as well as prior top prizes. They really should look back at what made everyone really happy (e.g., Crazy good DM Fall from 2 years ago), even if that means one less good card to put in a pack.
I just logged on and realized that. There is no way I can see ever doing this and anyone who does needs to take a good long hard look at themselves and ask the question if they could be doing something more with their lives.
Edit: However, it would be a very good idea for 2K to consider having Domination games that do not last as long as the current ones do. This is especially true if the prizes are not really very good.
The starting lineups are solid and I’m sure Duke and Kentucky will be impossible to afk. But a lot of these teams have golds and emeralds coming off the bench. You can play the first quarter and set the controller down essentially. I’m 8 games in today, mainly just knocking it out because I’m 30 cards away from Moses.
Also, I’ll have NCAA tournament games to watch during the grind so I’ll be good.
