We’ve already shared with you an in-depth guide for My NBA 2K17 and now, as promised, it’s time to focus on some of the other important aspects of the game. Since this is a deck building game where having the rarest and best cards is the key to victory, we’ve decided to write a guide on how to get the rarest cards in the game easily. So let’s find out in this article how to get more Ultra Rare, Epic or Legendary cards fast in My NBA 2K17!

As you probably know already, it’s not that easy to score these cards and unless you are very active in the game, you won’t achieve much, but follow our tips and you’ll get there faster than the rest. So let’s not waste any time and let’s check out below how to get more My NBA 2K17 Legendary cards and below!

Go to the top tiers ASAP
You will never get an Epic card if you’re still in the Super Rare or Ultra Rare tiers, so the first thing you have to do is to make sure you get to the higher tiers ASAP. Reading the guide I’ve mentioned previously will get you there fast, but the idea is to play a lot of games and use your cards to train your top 5 in order to move up the tiers.

The Auction House
Although I don’t really like dipping my toes in the Auction House waters, if you have the stacks of Reward Points, you should get some very rare cards this way. Epic cards sell for as low as 10,000 Reward points and prices might go down more as these cards become more popular. So definitely keep an eye on the market for some cheap purchases!

Buy card packs
The same 10,000 RP you can spend on getting an Epic could be spent on buying a Big Player Pack from the store which could give you two Epic players (or none, so yes, there’s always this risk!) Or you can spend real life money and get the Foil Packs which have better rewards. I would personally wait for special promotions and make purchases during that period of time.

Play Seasons
A quick way to get Ultra Rare, Epic or Legendary cards in My NBA 2K17 is to play seasons and win them or rank as high as possible. You need a very good team in order to both be in a good tier that rewards you with top cards and also be able to defeat the others. Play seasons only when you have a ton of energy cards available and start them early in the morning, so you can log in often to recharge your players with energy and keep them in top form. Seasons are at the moment the fastest and easiest way to get free very rare cards in the game.

The Blacktop Challenge
My favorite game mode that was introduced this year, the Blacktop Challenge rewards you upon its completion with a ton of picks – up to 100+ cards at a time. This means that your chances of getting very rare cards based on your tier improve and it’s better to play the Blacktop Challenge instead of the regular Quick Games if you have the time. Just make sure that you are in an upper tier because the card rewards are based on your Tier!

To make things a lot easier, we’re written a quick guide on how to easily win Blacktop Challenges in the game – make sure to read it!

Be active
All in all, if you are very active in-game and keep on playing, you will surely get those rewards faster than the others. Playing 100 Quick Games or Blacktop Challenges will give you more rare cards than playing just a few, so have in mind that the more active you are, the better. Play it smart (as in going with full energy in Blacktop Challenges and Seasons) and you will do amazing!
