I am still loving this game – and I am talking about My NBA 2K15 now. But, as much as I love the game, I know that you can’t have a great deck without some great cards. And even though we’ve covered basic and advanced strategy in our previous article, it’s still very important to get some rare cards for your team. So now I am going to share with you some tips and tricks on how to get Super Rare, Epic and Legendary cards faster in My NBA 2K15 – and therefore win your matches easier.
Unfortunately, getting a Super Rare (or above) card in the game is not easy and you will have to play through a lot of games to get there. But eventually you will, and you will be happy with your newly earned cards. Here is how to do it:
1. Better tiers for better card chances
A Super Rare + tier will give you more chances of winning a SR card than the regular one. So get there as soon as possible. Also, Being in the Ultra Rare tier for example also comes with a better chance of you winning a Super Rare card. So the better your tier, the better your chances of scoring an extremely rare card. Also, I have noticed that whenever you change your tier (Super Rare, Ultra Rare, Epic and so on) you will soon afterwards receive a card from that tier.
2. Win Seasons
Taking part in and especially winning seasons is the easiest way to earn some Super Rare, Ultra Rare, Epic and above cards. Winning is easier if you have your season’s tier as close to the upper limit as possible: this means that you have a top deck for that season. So it’s always better to go in a Super Rare season with the tier bar at the top rather than the Ultra Rare season with the bar just starting up. As long as you win it.
3. Ladder rewards
If you simply keep on playing the game, you will start winning some great cards as a reward. When you reach 523 games played, for example, you will get a Super Rare Michael Jordan card, then at 1023 games played you will get the second MJ card to turn into a pro. And so on, so just be active and play over and over again to get access to better cards.
4. Exhibition games
The drop rate of really good cards is pretty low in Exhibition games, but that is what you will be playing most of the times, so grinding here is the only way to do it. As I said in the previous tip, the more you play, the more cards you will get and the better your chances of getting some Epic and Legendary cards.
5. Purchase cards
The risk of getting a poor card is great here, but it’s worth taking if you have some money to spend: buy a card pack! For 100 credits you can get an Uncommon to Ultra Rare pick, but if you really want to make sure that you will get an awesome card, you need 1,200 credits for a guaranteed Ultra Rare (with a chance for Epic). You will win credits every now and then from ladder rewards, so you can invest them as well in extra cards and if you are lucky, you’ll have a top one to play with!
In the end, as you can see, getting a nice batch of Super Rare to Legendary cards in My NBA 2K15 is not easy, but you will get there if you are active. And if you have other tips, share them with us below.
