    The NBA 2K development team has posted a lengthy Facebook blog detailing MyGM 2.0 and MyLEAGUE improvements coming to NBA 2K20.

    This year, MyGM focuses on increasing the number of meaningful decisions made by the user, a score and leaderboard system, a new landing menu, a revamped leveling system, a new skill tree, revamped relationships, revamped goals and tasks, and more.

    Additional MyLEAGUE-level features include: staff card, revised morale and team chemistry, new personality badges for max players, history and records, improved draft class authenticity, improved player DNA, option to force winners, using LT/RT to quickly scroll through menus, and more.

    MyGM 2.0 Overview

    MyGM was the cornerstone of the revitalized new era of franchise, dating back to 2K14. We delivered to our fans the first-person experience of what it’s truly like to be a GM; to be at the helm of a team in one of the most prestigious sports in the world. There were goals to complete, rosters to build, and conversations to have in a variety of environments. The fans loved it; overall it paved the way for MyLEAGUE in 2K15 and the storylines present in 2K18 and 2K19.

    The fans were clear; they liked the conversations, for the most part. There were a few minor annoyances; hearing from your 6th man for the thousandth time that they wanted to be a part of the starting lineup could get a little old, but overall being able to actually talk to the players and staff made a huge difference in how the game felt.

    Yet as the years went on, the focus clearly shifted as MyGM was no longer the new kid on the block – the fan base loved the sandbox nature of MyLEAGUE, and a lot of the major elements of MyGM were the same year-to-year. You’d still have the same conversations, still have the same goals and STILL have that sixth man that wants a starting spot. When asked to describe MyGM to someone not familiar, the most common description was “It’s like MyLEAGUE… but with conversations.” That is accurate, but we want more. We want to have MyGM carve out its own identity, and to really make it feel like a distinct experience from MyLEAGUE. To do that, we completely overhauled the system to what we call MyGM 2.0.

    Here’s a quick overview of some of the new features contained in MyGM 2.0:

    · Action Points
    · Score and leaderboards
    · Skills, featuring a skill tree and an updated leveling structure
    · Completely new task system
    · Revamped relationships
    · Sponsorships and branding

      I just wish EA Tiburon and the Madden team would look at 2k and say hey if they can do this type of stuff, why can't we?

      I really like the personality badges for superstars. New morale sounds interesting too. I don’t pay much attention to that.
