As we look ahead to an exciting March in NBA 2K Mobile, we’re pumped to share details with you about our newest event. Or mode. Or tournament. In the words of the great QJB, whateva you wanna call it.
We’ve been focused on making our rotation of limited-time events bigger and better than ever. And in this next one, you’ll get to use your MyTeam players in a format that is brand new to events – 3 on 3.
The event is called 3v3 Gauntlet, and it has many elements of the standard Gauntlet with a few twists. Games will be played on the Crews court. Your players won’t be wearing NBA jerseys. Invisible refs will blow their invisible whistles.
Basically, the gameplay will resemble Crews. For those that aren’t active over there – no need to worry. Crews activity has no impact on 3v3 Gauntlet.
Instead, to start the event you’ll be given a random set of three positions. From there, you can either select the players in your collection that you want to fill each position with, or you can reroll to get a different trio of positions. That is done using new “Position Roll” currency. You get 10 free Position Rolls to start via the Event Freebie and Event Freebie Ad packs (five in each), and you’re also given a new set of positions each time you finish a streak.
Just like the standard Gauntlet, you can select an Easy, Medium or Hard streak. Opponents will typically feature cards from the NBA franchise listed, and you’ll be able to see the trio of positions for each of them as you pick a streak. For some, a Warriors opponent may include both Steph Curry and Gilbert Arenas. Better have some good guards ready for that one!
That’s another unique feature in this event – you can use players of the same position on the court together. Roll a point guard and two small forwards? Get your LeBron and Durant cards out there together. Use twin towers like Shaq and Kareem if you roll two centers. Any combination of positions is possible, including three of the same. You can also roll a WILD, which allows you to pick a player from any position.
You can’t use two cards of the same player, though. We may be a video game, but we gotta resemble real life too! As soon as we see evidence of human clones, we will change that.
Style bonus in 3v3 Gauntlet will be 20% for the first theme card in your lineup, 30% for the second card and 50% for the third. So, a max of 100% just like other events.
This one makes its debut next week – March 10-13. In case you missed our social announcement, the top rewards will be Michael Redd, Dirk Nowitzki and CJ McCollum.
As 3v3 Gauntlet gets underway, let us know what you think. Is it among your favorite events? Least favorite? Hit us up on social, and we’ll take your feedback into account as we assess the event rotation going forward.
See you on the blacktop for a little 3 on 3!
