NBA 2K22 Evolution Cards

Evolution cards can be upgraded by completing statistical milestones unique to each card. The card's attributes, badges, hot zones, animations, and eligible positions can improve as the level. Some cards will even allow you to choose from two different sets of upgrades to evolve a card to your own play style.

Evolution cards can be upgraded into better versions of that player.

Card Description

Each bolt on the side of an Evolution card represents an upgrade level that card can achieve by completing goals to evolve. Some evolution levels will allow you to choose between two sets of bonuses. You can find the evolution requirements and track your progress in the CARD EVOLUTION menu on the MyTEAM tab of the main menu.

Evolution Cards are available in rewards, auction house, and packs. 2K users can upgrade an evolution card to a better version and become more powerful. By finishing some goals, the evolution card will evolve. The star on the side of an Evolution card represents an upgrade level that card can obtain. In the CARD EVOLUTION menu on the MyTEAM tab of the main menu, you can see the evolution requirements and track your upgrading progress.

Avaiable in: PACKS, REWARDS, AUCTION HOUSE.

Customizable NBA 2K22 Evolution Cards

Evolution Cards was clearly one of our star additions to the NBA 2K20 MyTEAM experience. The ability to obtain cards and power them up to higher gem tiers felt very rewarding as it gave people a chance to build some sweat equity with their collections. Evolution Cards are back in NBA 2K22, and better than ever!

New to NBA 2K22, 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 make a selection between two badges that you want to focus on adding to the given card. Let’s use a real example here to dive into this further. Spoiler: the venerable Shaquille O’Neal is one of our Starter Pack options this year ( this means you can choose to start with a free Shaq card in 2K21!). One of his evolution tiers is going to offer you the choice between Rebound Chaser (improved rebounding ability) and Rim Protector (better shot blocking ability). It’s a tough choice. Do you want your Shaq to be a better rebounder, or more menacing around the rim? Based on the badge you choose to chase, the requirement to upgrade it will update accordingly.

NBA 2K EVO cards

This means that not all fully evolved Evolution Cards will be identical in NBA 2K22, and I think that is a fantastic thing. MyTEAM is a mode about fantasy. A mode about user choice and customization. The addition of Customizable Evolutions to the game this year takes us that one step further to differentiating player lineups and gives you yet another tool to give your team the edge out there on the courts. I can’t wait to see the choices you will all make this year. We’ve got some crafty ideas planned!

Evolution Card Example

  1. From the left menu, you can check out all your evolution cards.
  2. In the center, you can track the requirements to evolve each card. For the card in the following example, it needs to score 6 points in a single game.
  3. In the right, you can even check out the attributes and badges you will upgrade when you evolve. As the example shown below, the evolved cards will have +20 Mid-Range Shot, +5 Three-Point Shot, etc.

Some evolutions allow you to choose how you want to upgrade your player offering different attributes boosts, badges, hot zones, and even animations based on which path you choose.

Note that Evolution cards will not be eligible for badge customization.

NBA 2K22 MyTEAM Evolution "EVO" Card Guide

How to use evolution card in NBA 2K22 myteam

Most of the cards you get in NBA 2K22 MyTEAM are static. For example, they arrive from their wrappers as emerald cards or sapphire cards and remain the same. The Player's stats and badges are locked. You can apply shoes to artificially inflate the card's properties, but you cannot change the card on a fundamental level or its color permanently at all.

But evolution cards can do that. By reaching a specified benchmark (a specific number of points in the game, or a specific number of blocks over the course of several games), your evolution card can upgrade its color, skill ratings, and gain a badge. Some evolution cards can be upgraded once or twice. Others can be upgraded up to five times. It all depends on the specific card.

The first time you start MyTEAM, you'll get one of five Evolution cards: Tracy McGrady, Derrick Rose, Dirk Nowitzki, Vince Carter or Hakeem Olajuwon. The Olajuwon card has been upgraded from Emerald to Sapphire; it can be upgraded to Ruby again (as shown in the space star on the left). The best evolution card can have up to five stars (Level 5 upgrade).

You can learn a lot by looking at the CARD EVOLUTION menu on the MyTEAM tab, where you can select card evolution. In the middle is the evolution requirement, which shows how many rebounds and points you need to evolve this card. On the right is a preview of what the card's boosts will be when the card finally evolved.

Some evolution cards can obtain badges when you evolve. For example, Cedric Ceballos' next upgrade to Ruby will win two gold shooting badges. When deciding whether to spend time developing an evolution card, make sure the end product is worth your evolving.

You can unlock the evolution card for free by winning the game in Triple Threat mode; for example, winning 50 times will bring you the ruby "Darius miles".

The easiest way to get an evolution card is to play in a Domination mode. If you play on all-star difficulty, you will get an evolution card for winning it. It's a top priority to unlock Alex Caruso (19 Gold badges), whom you get for beating the Lakers, and Terrance Ferguson (18 Gold badges and 2 Hall of Fame badges), whom you obtain after beating Oklahoma City.

Can you upgrade your MyPlayer in MyTeam 2K22?

VC will not be a major part of your plan when you are not willing to spend real money in the MyTeam mode. However, you can still make money and consume VC in MyTeam, which is earned by playing other modes. NBA 2K22 mt coins is the standard currency in MyTEAM mode.

MyCareer, Play Now Online, MyGM, MyLeague, and other modes can reward players with VC. In addition to MyCareer, some players are against using any VC in any mode. In the past few years, this approach has some truth, but for NBA 2K22, this approach is not so wise.

After upgrading your MyPlayer to 95, the improvement of its overall score mainly depends on the quality of play. As a result, it reduces the burden of VC and is free to choose to use it in MyTeam.

If you are willing to use some of your hard-earned VC in MyTeam, please determine how much you are willing to use in this mode and how much you save for MyCareer. Maybe you want to split 50-50 or even 70-30?

Since VC will not be the main currency of the MyTeam plan, I suggest that 70-30 or even 75-25 should be allocated to VC for a smaller amount.
