I've spent too abundant money on VC this year testing out altered builds for online play aggravating to ascertain their strengths and weaknesses as able-bodied as highlighting a few key points and NBA 2K18 MT Coins. This adviser still applies to Career, but as you'll find, there are differences in online play, and that is what this adviser is mainly for.
We'll alpha with Pro Am, and some accustomed builds you will see; ambition to accomplish to be competitive.
PG Position In my acquaintance you can get abroad with accepting beneath 6'3 but I wouldn't acclaim traveling any abate because what you'll accretion in dispatch will be for annihilation if you acquisition out how bad you are on defense.
Alone I anticipate 6'4-6'5 is the candied spot. 6'7 helps with boards and the like, but it acutely hampers your dispatch and acceleration. And as a PG, avaricious boards shouldn't be your aboriginal or additional priority.
My recommended PG build: 6'4 Playmaking Analyzer Runner up: 6'5 Authentic PLAYmakers
Either of these Builds will acquiesce you to actualize for your teammates which is aloft all, the a lot of important affair to accumulate in apperception if creating a PG. If your aggregation is already ample with scorers and shooters, you may accede the pureplaymaker, if you charge a little added firepower I acclaim the Playmaking sharpshooter.
SG position Recommended position: Authentic Analyzer Runner up: Attack Creating Sharpshooter
A 6'5-6'7 Authentic Analyzer IMHO is the best alloy of admeasurement and acid in the game. You get all the HoF acid badges, and they are LETHAL in online play. I aswell acclaim a 6'6 Attack Creating Sharpshooter. This will add a little added versatility to your guy with the bulk of giving up HoF badges, still able to admission gold. He'll ability bigger at the rim and get some argent attack creating badges. An all about scoring apparatus with acceptable admeasurement to play defense.
SF position 6'8 240 lb Authentic Slasher Runner up: 6'8 Attack Creating Slasher
Normally I'd leave the weight at absence and max out wingspan on every build, but slashing SF in Pro-Am are beasts. The Authentic gets HoF badges, while the attack creating Slasher gets gold Posterizer but is aswell able to appointment the mid ambit if the lane to the rim isn't there. Candidly this body feels like LeBron admitting the abridgement of Playmaking, which is accept aback your PG should handle the brawl the majority of the time. Both are abundant off the brawl players that can avert well, have accomplished strength, attack with boards with anyone beneath 7' tall, can ability at will, and you if go the attack creating Slasher route, his midrange is advantageous as able-bodied allowance actualize amplitude on the floor. About you and your aggregation structure your bandage up, either of these builds are accomplished for Online play.
PF position Controversial opinion, but you'll ambition to skip this position. If you ambition a big man in the Park, just go with a center. If you ambition a PF in Pro Am, admission one maxed out center, and admission the “PF” accomplish a hardly abate centermost in the 7-7'2 range. Admeasurement and backbone are complete important in this bold and you will not apprehension the dispatch assets abundant at all in Pro Am from the undersized centers. 6'11 feels big in MyCareer until you go up adjoin 2 accompanying belfry 7'3 big men and hate that ashen all that time and money on a bad big man.
Center recommended build: Slashing Rebounder Runner up: Authentic Bottle Cleaner
Honestly Slashing Rebounder is abundant bigger offensively than a authentic bottle and aswell gets the bigger badges for ablution and rebounding. If you don't like scoring with a big man and abandoned ambition to do the nitty abrasive plan like ambience screens, grabbing boards, absorption the paint, accepting putbacks occasionally.. go with the Authentic bottle cleaner. Already your badges are maxed they are abreast unstoppable on the bottle and it creates a lot of problems for opposing teams. Max their height and wingspan, and depending on your lineup, don't go any lower than 300, but 310-340 seems to be the candied spot.
These are by no agency the abandoned avenue to success on Online play, but these are the added accustomed builds that admission your affairs of acceptable as continued as you play to their strengths as there is no LeBron do it all blazon amateur you can accomplish in this game. If you admission appropriate b-ball IQ, acquaintance with 2K, and admission a bandage with these builds, you will eventually alpha cutting up the wins.
Some added important addendum for success:
1, Normal pull-up attack 13 is currently the best affective attack for accepting buckets and greens.
2, Attack abject 43 for creating shots tends to get greens.
3, Aldridge-Carmelo-Harden-Gay-Lilliard accept to be the a lot of accustomed accepted shots.
4, Consistently bethink to accouter acquaintance dunks if you can get them; and I would abstain accouterment Esplanade douse bales so you don't get blocked about as much.
5, Don't agrarian out on douse packages. Aces one or two like LeBron James or Paul George. Anniversary appearance gets 3-4 altered animations. Don't charge your able dunks.
6, Affective circuit 6 is solid.
