Now I know why people are complaining about the Royalty challenge.. ridiculous how many rebounds the Spurs get OVER you or how a wide open alley oop goes over your guts head ... and the consistent fade away 3 2-3 feet behind the line with hands in the face lol .. oof

Crazy how you get straight mugged going into the lane and somehow miss a point blank lay up as time ran out ... finally forced some TOS and realed off 3 wins in a row then hit reset a few times to get another 2 ha

I found it really weird how many friggin 3 pointers you miss with great shooters. Like wide open 3s you would never miss any other time. I don't care enough about getting Lebron. like I said i'll get him when I get him, I'll play 3-4 times each day there is royalty. I agree with you that in a way getting Rodman is a waste bc he is only on classic. But who knows maybe at some point this season we can use classic more. I need something to do since there have been no promos.

True... I missed at least 7, 3s in a row with CJ Mcculimn and Upgraded Conley bothi over 80 3pt and all were good looks .. I almost went ballistic

I've gotten the hang of it though and know if I don't hit a 3,3 or a 2,Miss, 3 from the get go it seems it way harder for me to win .. I could use the Lebron big time since I'm an 81 led by 86 Conley , D12 NY and derozen till I land a big fish or get my coins over million. Won 2-3 row then again and I keep hitting duplicates . Read this is gonna happen so we'll see

Only have 3 of EAST

Sucks I want to get the Blake but not if he can only go to 85. I have about 175 of the knot things. I might just try to get the elites instead, which takes 250 knots. I haven't heard what pulls people are getting, someone said they pulled an 87 McCollum, it says 85 +. Now that the Pistons have Blake I want to get him but not as an 85

I pulled a Pierce 87. I'd go for the elites because in the long run the 85 guys are topping out at 90, which is too low for their ceiling.

You guys going after he 7 day all star promo or sticking to Chinese promo?? I'm not into the specialist ...

I'm 5 from the Lebron but most likely won't hit it bc so many duplicates while not playing that first day at all really

Anyone getting close to masters ??

I'm not interested in the masters specialist so I'm playing that casually like I play royalty casually. I am going after the Durant 93 from the CNY and will probably get him in the next week. (4 more elites or 5 if I want defensive which I think I do).

I am going to sell everything from AS for coins. I would imagine that the next 2 big promos, March madness and Easter will be very good as they were last yr.

it is getting really hard to upgrade guys though now. Will be like 3 weeks for me to get my Nash 96 to a 97.

Is the Legacy Dirk a waste for me to try for at this point since i had to start over? I was gonna PM you this morning but got busy about pros/cons since I have to give up 5 elites to get the base Dirk. Then didn't know how he training worked with tokens other than guys on boards saying he costs a bit to level up past 86

If I were you I would build around the one player you use the most. SO for me that is always my PG. For some that is their center. I would try and get players that have the bests boosts for the money. So to me, getting a Booker is a bad move bc he has weak boosts. Same with a lot of earlier cards. But you can get some decent cards with +3 or +2+2 boosts and start your rebuild like that.

You can also always wait for the prices to go down on guys like Howard as the game progresses and new better cards come out.

And yea Legacy Dirk is a waste at this point.

I was messing around knowing the answers aren't rocket science but wasn't sure how you did it to build your team. It's nice having balance but that only goes so far and you wind up wasting time possibly when you go against good teams like the ones in your league

Right now I'm just buying/selling or grinding/selling while only playing either temp players I will flip or promo guys I'll sell within the day. Back to level 28

Lineup now PG Simmons 86, CJ Mc 83, Durant LNY 85, Blake Griffin LNY 85, D12 clockstoppers 86

Def hit a lot of 3s but sometimes defense gives up a lot easy buckets since I go up and down a lot

What's your lineup looking like these days? Is the PG13 90 worth it or is it just an "overall help" type card? I was debating grabbing it on the discount and going back to Defensive style team with Simmons 87 as my PG

Probably to late for me to try and grind my way up to Durant 93 when I sold 2 cards already and played more legend/royalty till last 2 days ? My 85 LNY Durant def hits 3s and fade away/close guarded type 3s pretty well

My lineup is very similar to the last post I made. I built up my classic team for some reason lol. It takes forever to train guys who is in the mid 90s. So maybe next week I will post a pic since I should have 93 Durant, my Nash classic should be up a point and I will get a new 87 fan favorite.

PG 13 is a good overall player. If he is cheap and you don't plan on getting a better SF then he is a good option. Nothing amazing, pretty good everywhere.

Your lineup looks pretty good for a restart. I think having a good PG and a good center are the 2 most important things in the game since there are so many offensive rebounds this season.

I'd skip it and sell elites for coins.

DURANTULA to add with potential sells of swag Harden 88 I stole , PG-13 78 for 12k and an accidental bid on 88 CS Porzingis of 692K I half asleep hit before Durant ... MOTHER DUNKER

I was up to 1.6K in coins hustling last 3 days from 750-800k...

Sell KD or keep ? Leaning sell asap to get best 2nd tier coin since he has several elites at auction .. l

If you upgrade that durant it will be a 94 or 95 worth boosts. You may want to keep that since you ate on your second team. It is hard to get those 89 plus players without spending real money or busting your azz.

I think you're right plus his 3 point is 92 with the Ben Simmons +2 boost to team . Plus gives me a core player instead of selling everyone for coins

And I meant I accidentally hit bid on a 88 Porzingis clock stoppers of 685 early AM has asleep.. not happy about it since I was going to go after the 87 Simmons and play with the 85 Blake Griffin which is actually a decent card in terms of his numbers :/

I agree with you on PG/C esp since last team I was building seemed to do a better job with Ben and good bigs down low. The D12 89/93 cards or possibly the Embiid AS card 88 may be the next player I go after when I get ben 87

I wanted the Giannis 9 eventually since his rebounding and D are sick but nice not paying like you said. Debating on PF or 2 Guard to go after also for a prize range of 700K to 1mil range. Beal 88 or Klay all star 87 look good for price range since I can't afford to go after CJ Mc legend 92 or the Victor 91

Think the Draymond AS 87 card or the Porzingis 88 clockstoppers is the best under mil PF? I really want a PF who has good D and high reb that can hit a 3 once in awhile so those 2 are best for $ I know of ?

I agree Iím not into the specialist event. Iíve gotten Aldridge so far in the AS event, kinda splitting stamina between LNY and AS Promo, and legendary. So far Iíve got Bonzi Wells 86 and D Wade 87 Rodman, Blake and Mutumbo from LNY, 83 and 89 legendary vince. Aldridge 84 from AS.

Thatís awesome on the Durant hit and that your going for the Durant Dave. Iím at 38/49 for the master Harden

Thanks Brian .. best card I've hit and was excited esp on my ambion sleep meds .. why I referred to Gucci secure the bag song bc he mentions Durant .he also hits 3s with the boost from ANYWHERE & on break away pop an shot . But it's sweet you hit so many decent players ... what's your current lineup bud?

I've got a legendary player to cash in as we speak so hopefully I get something decent

I'm also about to add Embiid AS 88 or Ben Simmons 87.. dumb half asleep bidding on Porzingis 88 pissed me off . Yes I won for 685 so not worth to resale prob

I'm also about where you are on Maaters.. I hadn't played much towards it past 3 days bc of AS LNY promos... meaning basically zero ha

I use the legacy Dirk but the Ryan Anderson New Years is good for cheap and Porzingis New Years is good for 5-600k.

Nice man I'm also 38/49. I think I will hit Durant mid/end of the week. It is a LONG grind man! Totally agree about the specialist event, I just play it when it is a new live event. My AS was friggin 92 Horford lol.

Yea man you should get back in. I think Season 1 was better but it's still a lot of fun and different with training players and such.

Yeah, I had so much fun with it last year but the only thing holding me back is I don't feel it's a game that's easy to play casually. I feel like you can't really achieve much by playing in short spurts every day or two.

yea no question, the good news about this year as far as that is concerned is that very few teams have players with special abilities so you can have a good team ranked in the mid 80s and compete with a 94.

I noticed that with my old team where I was 87 overall and played teams in early 90s in 2-3 tourneys. I lost but didn't get spanked

Hit AS Oladipo 86 ... not bad. Dude hit everything in my league H2H game vs a weak 83 team. 5 3pt in one quarter from everywhere

Just got Jimmy Butler too.. Neither probably worth selling but I'm back to 87 ranking, level 31 (100 xp away but waiting stamina go back up before cash in) with 600k coins. Not terrible but oof I got screwed on Porzingis 685k.. one listed now for 500k :/

Anymore AS hits for you guys ??

I'm about halfway to my next one, can't be worse than 82 Horford right lol? You did a good job getting back up to a solid rank. 87 can compete with anyone up til like 95+.
