after 4 Features Wishlist for NBA 2K18 now nba218mt.com sort out other Wishlist,Expect nba 2K18 getting better and better And NBA 2K18 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in September. We don’t have an official release date, but you can bet the developers for Take-Two’s Visual Concepts are already working hard to produce the next version of the series.Per members of the development team, it’s best to submit a wishlist for a sports game 7-9 months before it’s scheduled to be released. I never expect everything on NBA2K18MT list to be added to a game, but last year I saw seven of NBA2K18MT suggestions in NBA 2K17.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one making requests, but it’s great to know the gaming community’s voice is being heard.
With that said, here’s NBA2K18MT list for NBA 2K18.
All-Star Weekend Mode
It’s crazy to think that the only way to play any of the All-Star Weekend games is through MyGM and MyLEAGUE. What if I just want to have a three-point shootout or dunk contest against the CPU, friends online or offline?
The mode should be available as a standalone mini-game.
This used to be a staple of the NBA 2K franchise, but it was removed a few years ago. It’s basically MyPlayer without the storyline. Some say you can still have this experience by using player lock in MyLeague, but that’s a bootleg version of the concept.
CAL should include attribute boosts, goals, player grades and more. It’s deeper than simply controlling one player throughout a game or a season.
Superstar Challenge Modes

I thought 2K really dropped the ball by not including a Mamba Moments mode in NBA 2K17. Kobe Bryant was on the cover of the Legends Edition, he was retiring and the hoops world was Mamba crazy.
It would have made sense to have that mode in the game. It should have been similar to the Jordan Challenge mode, or maybe the LeBron James’ Path to Greatness mode. In any case, I’d like to see a return of superstar-centric modes.
It could be a great way to earn virtual currency (VC), and to unlock legendary teams and players. More on that later.
The Ability to Upload Single Player Creations And Teams
We can upload entire rosters, but it would be helpful to the community if you could just upload single players and teams.
Participation In Draft Combine In MyCAREER
The draft combine doesn’t get a lot of love in the NBA, but it could be really cool in MyCAREER. If each drill could be conducted in a mini-game, that would make the pre-draft aspect of the MyCAREER experience more entertaining.
Incororate More College Elements
There’s no college basketball game, but NBA 2K has added more college elements in the last two versions of the game. I know I’m not the only one that would love to play an entire college basketball season in MyCAREER, and in other modes.
MyPlayers in Blacktop and Other Modes
Fans put so much work into their MyPlayers, it makes sense to make them playable characters in every mode in the game. MyPlayers in MyGM, MyLEAGUE, Blacktop and every other mode would only further connect fans to their in-game avatars.
Watch Or Scout Mode
With NBA 2K eLeague set to launch in 2018, competitive gaming will be taken to the next level. Real NBA teams scout their opponents. Competitors in 2K’s eSports world should be able to watch other players and teams in preparation for matches.
Multiple Storylines In MyCareer
One storyline doesn’t fit every player. Many fans create multiple MyPlayers. If there were separate storylines in MyCAREER for smaller guards, wing players and low-post guys, it would offer more variety and more replay value for MyCAREER.
MLB The Show has offered carry-over saves for Road to the Show and franchise modes for the past three years. It’s time NBA 2K and the rest of the sports video game universe follow suit. Many of us get really attached to our teams and leagues in MyGM and MyLEAGUE.
It’s a bummer to have to start from scratch every year.
Restructure the NBA
Last year we were given expansion, realignment and a few minor rule changes. MyLEAGUE is the ultimate sandbox mode, so having the ability to change the playoff structure, and other in-game rules should be options.
Creating a collegiate experience with a 30-second shot clock and closer three-point lines would be some of the first rule changes I’d explore.

Sunset Beach, Rivet City and Old Town have been good to the 2K Community, but I think it’s time we add a few more parks to MyPARK. Perhaps even a return to real hoops venues like Rucker Park would be a great new/old feature.
Improved Commentary From the New Announce Teams
It was great to see the new commentary teams in NBA 2K17, but I’d like to see more conversational value with Doris Burke, Steve Smith and Chris Webber. The old crew of Kevin Harlan, Greg Anthony and Clark Kellogg sound as if they recorded their lines together, while the others don’t.
Improved Halftime Show
I would love to have someone explain to me why Visual Concepts was able to have highlights from other games in a halftime show in 2004, but never again since. NFL 2K5 still has the best halftime show ever in a sports game, but we’re seeing only incremental improvements in the concept from all of the other sports video game franchises that are still in existence.
Real highlights, statistical analysis, relevant or in-game commercials, short documentary-style features, etc. would be novel and cool ideas to spruce up the halftime show.
Speaking of commercials, wouldn’t it be cool if part of your MyPlayer story was told through the use of in-game commercials. Sneaker deals, off-the-court issues and other happenings could be conveyed through strategically placed in-game ads and spots.
The same thing could work in MyGM and MyLEAGUE. This would only add to the immersion.
Weekly Wrap-Up Show In MyGM And MyLEAGUE
A weekly wrap-up show would add immersion to the MyGM and MyLEAGUE modes. We already have Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal. Having them go over a Player of the Week, top dunks and plays segment would make it seem even more like an NBA on TNT broadcast.
More Create-A-Player Options
I’m big on customization in sports video games, so I’ll almost always push for more in this area. NBA 2K17 offered us a ton in the way of customization, but there’s still room for improvement.
One of the first areas of opportunity is in the create-a-player (CAP) options. We still can’t give CAPS tattoos. You can give your MyPlayer a tattoo, but not the players you create for custom rosters. That’s a strange limitation that should have been resolved years ago.
Also, it would be nice to have more control over the customization of facial features. An image upload system similar to the one used in WWE 2K would be ideal. If not that, then simply having more freedom to change the alignment of eyes and other facial features would be better than the current tool.
We also need more hairstyles for CAPS and MyPlayers. Odell Beckham Jr’s Afro Hawk with the blonde top is one of the more popular hairstyles you can find in urban America, but it’s not in NBA 2K17, despite several players in the NBA wearing the style. Other mohawks and popular styles are also missing from the game.
WWE 2K allows gamers to color certain portions of the wrestler’s hair. Is that possible in NBA 2K18? I hope so.
The most pressing need in the area of player customization is a larger variety of body types. Right now, there are three different body types: skinny, medium and hefty. Those three body types can be found on existing NBA players, but can’t be given to CAPS or MyPlayers.
Having those options for our creations is a start, but ideally, we’d see the number of body type options expanded. It’s hard to fit every basketball player into just three physiques.
More Player Editing Options
In MyGM and MyLEAGUE, there’s already a ton of alterations that can be made to existing players, but I’d love to be able to change player hairstyles. Guys like Jeremy Lin, Derrick Rose and others have been known to change hairstyles midseason.
In the interest of maintaining visual authenticity, those edits would be welcomed. Even if fans simply want to give a guy a different look, that option would add even more layers to the customization suite.
Share Custom Shoes
There’s an excellent shoe creator in NBA 2K17, but there’s one major limitation: you can’t share your creations. If I create a sweet or horrendous pair of Nikes, I should be able to share them with the 2K community.
One of the most deflating feelings in sports video games happens when you watch a replay only to see a player’s arm, leg or head fly through a stationary object or another player. It’s an unwanted reminder that we’re playing a video game.
Complete collision detection and 100% true-to-life physics are extraordinarily difficult to attain in a video game, and in some instances, I’m not even sure it’s what gamers want (though we clamor for it daily). However, fewer of these instances would be much appreciated:
The badge concept is one of the most underrated components in the NBA 2K structure. They allow players to perform above their overall rating at times, and that’s realistic. As an overall player, Kyle Korver is limited, but if you can free him up to get good looks from three-point range, he can be one of the most deadly players in the game.
In addition to his high three-point ratings, the corner badge and deep-shooting badges augment his effectiveness.
Piggybacking on that theme, there is room and a need for more badges. I wrote an article suggesting three new additions, but there’s even more to consider.
New Situational Animations

Where are the animations for blocked dunks at the rim? When can we see players grabbing on to an opponent’s jersey as they fight through a screen and players diving into the crowd for loose balls?
As of now, there’s still an invisible wall between the court and the fans. I’m not saying we should see defenseless rich folks being squashed in the expensive seats, but an animation that shows a player hop over the first row as they try to save a ball seems feasible.
Better Transition Defense
Too often we see players allow opponents to run straight down the middle of the floor without protecting the paint. No NBA player would regularly allow a player go to the basket without reacting–even if it meant leaving their defensive assignment.
This happens too much in NBA 2K17.
User-Controlled Hard Fouls
Giving hard fouls is a part of the game. There are times when a player will deliver a hard foul on an opponent who is driving to the basket. We should be able to pick and choose when we’re going to deliver a hard foul.
The chances of receiving a Flagrant Foul 1 or 2 should be increased, but if successful and there’s no flagrant foul called, it should also decrease the running layup rating of the player going to the basket.
The chances of injury should also be increased for the player who is fouled.
New Features and Modes
Online And Offline MyPlayers
There are three different types of 2K fans. There are people who almost exclusively play online, others that only play offline and those that dabble in both. As of now, the gaming experience is slanted drastically toward the online gamer.
This makes sense because that’s a major portion of the gaming market and future focus. However, it makes no sense to alienate the other demographic, especially if they can be made comfortable without detracting from the online gamers.
Case in point, the MyPlayer experience is governed and restricted by rules put in place to maintain the competitive balance and integrity. Because the MyPlayer you create is also the character you use when you go to MyPark and 2K Pro Am, you cannot give him certain combinations of size, speed and skill that would result in an unstoppable character online.
That makes sense, but what about offline? If I want to have a 7’5″ point guard with handles like Kyrie Irving in the comfort of NBA2K18MT own home, I should be able to live in that fantasy world.
Being able to designate whether a MyPlayer is for offline or online use is the way to appease everyone. If you choose to create a MyPlayer, you should be asked “is this offline or online?” If it’s online, the restrictions should be in place, because it’s clear you want to compete against others.
If you select offline, then the chains should be off, and you’re free to create whatever you want. This is the single most important issue to remedy for NBA 2K18.
H.O.R.S.E and Other Hoops Games
I’ve been asking for H.O.R.S.E and other shoot-around games for years. These alternative hoops games would be perfect for MyPARK while you wait your turn for a game. They would also be excellent as standalone mini-games for online and offline play.
Draft Mode In MyTEAM
As collector modes go, MyTEAM has fallen behind Madden Ultimate Team when it comes to the variety of options. Chief on the list of features that need to be added to MyTEAM is a draft mode. Draft Champions was one of the best additions to the Madden universe, and truth be told, a similar mode should have been included in NBA 2K17.
That didn’t happen, so NBA2K18MT fingers are crossed for a draft mode in NBA 2K18.
It would be awesome if your draft offered 12 rounds with the first three being the Big Three selections. Many NBA teams are based on a core three elite players. Taking that concept to a draft mode in NBA 2K18 would be entertaining. How many different Big Threes could you assemble? Would you go for an elite backcourt and one big, or a top-notch frontcourt and a point guard?
The strategic aspect of the selection process could be even more fun than actually playing the games.
Upload Team Designs in MyTEAM
This is a minor issue, but one that I hope to see fixed for NBA 2K18. Gamers have access to the best team creation suite I’ve ever seen in a sports video game with NBA 2K17. What’s even better, you’re allowed to upload an entire team design (uniform, arenas, etc) for others to download and use.
The team designs can be used in MyGM, MyLeague and MyTEAM. Unfortunately, you can only upload the designs while in MyLeague. This forces you to start a MyLeague (separate from the one you might already have) just for the sake of uploading multiple designs.
If the designs can be used in MyTEAM, you should be able to upload them in that mode as well.
Unlocked Legends In MyTEAM Should Be Available In Other Modes
The unlockable legends in MyTEAM are one of the best parts of the mode, but it would be great to have access to these players in other modes. There are a good number of classic teams, but some players like Kevin Johnson, David Thompson and others are only available in MyTEAM.
If we unlock them in MyTEAM, they should also be unlocked in Play Now, MyGM and MyLEAGUE.
