NBA 2K19: MyCareer Tips and Tricks
Play The Prelude and Negotiate Well
The MyCareer mode in NBA 2K19 has received several minor and major changes. While the core gameplay loop is similar to last year’s, some quality of life changes and an increase in VC earnings has made it more enjoyable overall. To get the best possible experience, it’s best to maximize what the game has to over so you can get your MyPlayer in peak condition.
One of the most important things you need to do is to finish the Prelude story arc. NBA 2K19 has quite a lengthy Prelude story titled The Way Back, which lasts around three to four hours. While this is one of the better MyCareer stories done by developer Visual Concepts, some players might prefer to head straight to the NBA. Doing this is ill-advised if you want to land on a good team with a sizeable VC income, enough play time on the court, and a decent multiplier for your teammate grade.
Play as best as you can during the Prelude to capture the attention of top teams. Choose the team that gives you the best pay grade and teammate grade multiplier so you can rake in some VCs fast. You can always place a counteroffer with the respective teams if their terms don’t satisfy you, with each team usually giving you over two times of back and forth negotiations to settle the deal. However, don’t get too greedy as they can shun you on the first counteroffer, so make sure to adjust the sliders in moderation. If your desired team cuts the deal, you can simply force close the game and boot up MyCareer again to retry everything from scratch.
