It’s been a few months now since the release of NBA 2K22. And I think I’ve played the game every day since its release. That’s mainly because of the game’s MyTeam mode. In it, you have the ability to create your own dream team and take on other players.
But since a few years in the Netherlands you do not have access to the Auction House in NBA 2K. This is also the case in NBA 2K22, although it can be circumvented with a VPN. It has to do with the gambling rules. But that way it’s harder to get new players. After all, you can’t buy them; you only get them from the packs. However, the chances of getting a good player there are slim.
Fortunately, this year shows that there are plenty of other ways to make a good team. For example, by keeping an eye on Locker codes via social media, you already had the opportunity to score a very good version of Kyrie Irving without doing anything. Furthermore, through the Locker codes you regularly score other bonuses, so you can fairly quickly score a basic team to take on the computer offline.

Moments of the Month in NBA 2K22
In addition, the creator now has their Moments of the Month challenge every month. In it, you will be given different challenges. At the beginning you have to complete certain goals in different modes and with that you get a few basic players. With that, you then get some specific tasks and it is possible to get better players after completing them. Eventually you have to continue until you get to the highest tier. In this way, we got a good version of Demar DeRozan in January and an excellent Devin Booker in February. On March 8, we will get the March challenge and I am curious to see what will be available then.

However, that’s one avenue you can take for good players in NBA 2K22. The second one that is active right now has to do with the All-Star break from a while ago. In honor of that event, we have been given a similar opportunity to score new players. These are perhaps a little bit easier to do and also gives you a reasonable load of good players. And with those, you can really take on other players well. Despite the fact that they then often have access to the auction house, you end up having enough clout to counter with these tools.

New seasons work
Furthermore, in NBA 2K22 MyTeam you still have different seasons. In each new season it is possible to unlock players by going up in levels. You do that again by completing certain goals for which you get EXP. Especially the first few levels are easy to do. Other ways to get players are through the Limited-mode. Each weekend you can create a team with certain restrictions. In this way, players without a star ensemble can compete. At the end of each season there is a good player waiting for you. And then you have the Draft mode. In this mode, each player is presented with a roughly equivalent team and you compete against each other online. There are also various prizes to be won.

Ultimately, things like this keep me coming back to NBA 2K22 every day. There’s always a goal to achieve and make your team better that way. Even if you were to get in now, I’m pretty sure you can really get a lot done with all these opportunities. Want to read more about gaming? Then visit our overview page here.
