Prep work for Season 6 of MyTEAM. It’s…peculiar.
@diego2k35 April Fool's...? WTF else in late March / early April is "peculiar"
somebody check the coaches again
@quantumkat Good point... I wonder if changing the coach system is more a patch-level task than a straight forward content update....
@element the doubling of the boosts makes me think that's a possibility. Seems like it's botched or something.
So all these bums zig zagging haven't been patched yet.
Well done 2k.
@quantumkat Nah it's same. I fear it will stay like this. So beware locking
@kennymck69 Thanks for continuing to check...
With fire content all but guaranteed for Friday, and the risk that these coach boosts suck, it's getting to be gut check time with regards to holding or selling the AoH cards..........
@element I'm holding. Even with fire content Friday, unless these Heroes are in packs (again) then supply will start to dwindle, especially with some people locking. Pretty much all the Opals are under 250K (Dirk is now above on PS, but I got him for 245K last night) and are still top options at their respective positions. I think the potential for profit is high enough and the prices on these cards are low enough right now that it's worth it to hold and see what happens. If the coaches turn out to be badass, then you might be sitting on a gold mine. If they're trash, the loss might not actually sting that much
@nickstank I guess they will probably drop another Heroes superpack maybe next week, but I'm guessing on Friday with the current ones ending, there won't be "fresh" supply the day the coaches are lockable, so I would hope that Kenny can uncover the coach boosts as early as possible so we could decide what we want to do, and basically have our top cards auctions end around the time people will be able to obtain the coaches (give a little cushion past 11AM EST for the final agendas to be completed )
@element call it a hunch but i think that it’s bigger than a stat boost with the coaches, I’ll just wait out to see if my hunch is correct.
@12th I really hope so, but what more could it possibly be? 6thmansam all but confirmed no badge boosts. I could see it being more than 6 individual attributes that are boosted.
Knowing that we were going to include a debuting Dark Matter player in each of these collections forced us to really think about who, or what, the collection rewards should be. If these collections are themed around assembling some of the greatest Heroes of the NBA, then the reward should be a leader. And there is only one card that can improve an entire lineup in MyTEAM, and only two people we felt could become the first, non-player, Dark Matter cards.
Complete the Modern Age collection to receive Dark Matter Gregg Popovich! With a Defensive System in place, Coach Pop can turn your player cards into defensive specialists, with +10 attribute boosts to key defensive ratings.
For the Golden Age collection, collect the 15 historic Hero players for Dark Matter Phil Jackson! Making his coaching debut in MyTEAM, Coach Phil’s Triangle System will take your team’s offense beyond the next level with +10 boosts to key offensive ratings.
Both coaches will have an immediate effect on players added into any lineups they lead; these attribute boosts raise players’ abilities to simply undreamt of levels. These are truly epic rewards, Dark Matter level rewards, for all who complete these collections in the Age of Heroes.
In 2 weeks, on March 19th, the final Golden Age and Modern Age Hero cards will be added to their Agenda Groups. From then on, MyTEAM will forever be changed by the greatness of Dark Matter Gregg Popovich, and Dark Matter Phil Jackson.
I just don't see any glimpse of a clue that they will do anything but +10 to certain attributes.
EDIT The line about "undreamt of levels" is probably just a stupid phrase, but if taken literally I could almost imagine they are suggesting the attributes can exceed 99 but only from the coaches (shoes, duo boosts etc. don't raise the attribute beyond 99, so the max anything could be would be 109). But even that is reading WAY too much into that phrasing I think.
