What are the stark changes to NBA 2K21 MyTeam?

The return of the new NBA 2K21 MyTeam has brought some stark changes, so we’ve prepared this guide to steer you to know all the new things that NBA 2K21 MyTeam has to offer.

MyTeam across generations

For those of you who start your NBA 2K21 MyTeam experience with the launch of PS4 on September 4, your entire collection and progress will carry over once you start playing the PS5 version game. This means you will have access to all of your pulled and earned cards (and any evolution progress associated with them), your progress in Domination, Triple Threat, etc., and your entire balance of VC, NBA 2K21 MyTeam Points, and Tokens. It’s all there! In fact, you can even go back and forth playing the PS4 version and the PS5 version at will.

Seasons & seasonal content


In NBA 2K21, we are going to introduce the Seasons concept into MyTeam. Seasons are free for everyone; there is no paid component.

Two key tenets to the MyTeam Season design for 2K21:

1). New prizing updates across most modes every Season.
2). Add something NEW to the mode every Season.

During the Season, you will be working on completing Daily, Weekly, and Seasonal-based Agendas. As objectives are completed, you will earn XP that will be used to raise your Season Level. Every time you level up, you will earn a reward. Reaching the final level within a Season earns you the grand prize for the Season.

MyTeam Limited

MyTeam Limited is a brand new MyTeam game mode for NBA 2K21. This new Mode is only available for play Friday, Saturday, and Sunday each week. The twist here is that the rules for the mode will be changing every weekend when a new event is activated!

MyTeam Limited is an online 5v5 multiplayer mode where you will compete against fellow MyTeam players who, like you, are chasing Championship Rings (more on that in a minute).

Every weekend, there is a new Championship Ring up for grabs. When you win a MyTeam Limited game, you will be rewarded with a prize.

After the final Limited event of the Season, you will trade in your Championship Rings for a tiered prize based on how many rings you collected.

MyTeam Unlimited 2.0

In NBA 2K21, Unlimited is undergoing its next evolution. This year, Unlimited will consist of 9 Leagues that you need to play through before reaching the top!

Every League in MyTeam Unlimited 2.0 will consist of up to 12 games. To advance to the next League, you will need to win a certain number of games in your current league.

The Exchange

The Exchange

New to NBA 2K21, The Exchange allows you to turn in/exchange your cards for some great prizes! This year, every Season in MyTeam will feature new Exchanges for you to collect and complete to earn exclusive cards only available here. The quality of the reward is going to dictate how much effort is required to complete the Exchange.

Badge customization

After taking a one-year hiatus in NBA 2K20, the ability to customize your players with unique badges has returned for NBA 2K21! There is something to be said for pulling the latest and greatest card and then having the ability to truly make it your own by customizing it to fit your playstyle better.

Badge cards will be available in Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Hall of Fame. To upgrade a player, you need first to apply the Bronze version of the badge. To upgrade to Gold, you will need to apply the Silver version of the badge before adding the Gold version of the badge. Hall of Fame versions of badges will be scarce and will be made available primarily through prizing and playing the game.

Another change and this is a significant one, is that we will limit what badges can go on players based on their archetype/playstyle.

Customizable evolutions

Evolution Cards are back in NBA 2K21 and better than ever!

New to NBA 2K21, you will now have more control over how some of your Evolution Cards evolve as they tier up. That is because we are introducing the concept of branching in the evolution process! When you have an Evo card that reaches a choice tier, you will select two badges to focus on adding to the given card.

Objective Tracker

NBA 2K21 has added a feature as the Objective Tracker. With this new feature, you will have the ability to tag up to 9 Season Agendas or Dynamic Goals of your choice. You will then be able to see and review those tagged Agendas/Goals when entering into offline gameplay in MyTeam, as a reminder of what you set out to accomplish in the current game.
