Let me just preface this by saying: I am NMS and grind for a lot of my cards, so I usually don’t spend an insane amount of MT on any card.
However, 2k has made the mistake of removing, in my opinion, the greatest part of the game last year. I understand evos aren’t completely gone, but there are hardly any of them left in the game. This post is my plea to 2K asking them to bring back evos.
Reason 1: They help literally everyone.
Say 2k dropped an evo Bruce Bowen for example. NMS grinders could buy the base card, evo him, and sell him back for profit. People who don’t want to grind can just buy the card evo’d up. There is literally no downside to having evo Cards in the game.
Reason 2: they make outdated card usable again.
One of the great parts about evo cards last year was that they brought back old cards and made them usable again. GO Brandon Roy was looking outdated, but when 2k added an update, he suddenly returned to my squad. With the badge system, evo cards are almost nonexistent because you could potentially have duplicate badge on the card.
Reason 3: They add another grind factor to the game.
Like a lot of you guys in quarantine last year, I was stuck inside with 2K as one of my only activities. Grinding evos in spotlight Sims was one of my favorite past times because it actually rewarded me for spending time on the game. With the badge system, whoever stacks up the most Hall of Fame badges is reward at the most, which does not really seem fair to me.
Reason 4: They actually produced some fun cards and increased interest in the game.
If you look back at some of the 2K20 threads from last year, speculation around which potential cards could gain Evo‘s was constantly present. I loved evo Ben Wallace, evo Jeremy Lin, and evo Dwyane Wade from the start of the year just to name a few. People would spend more time with evos than they do now badging up and selling cards. It creates a fun, enjoyable user experience.
I can’t speak for everyone on the site, but I am making this plea to 2K to please bring back Evo‘s in 2K 22. They captured lightning in a bottle last year, and to be honest, they fumbled the bag with it this year. I get the Badges messed that system up, but I’d actually prefer that it goes back to last year’s system. I don’t want to @ Sam and beg for changes to the game, but Sam, if you end up reading this, please take this into consideration.
Thank you for listening.
