Let's Talk Contracts

Okay, this is something ends up killing my enjoyment of myTeam year after year. I always start off with a decent squad, pick up a few key players on the auction house to round things out, and two or three days later they're all out of contracts and I end up giving up on the mode.

I have no idea how people are keeping contracts filled without putting in MT or VC, or even worse, real cash (which I refuse to do). MUT and Diamond Dynasty abandoned the contract system years ago, and FUT and HUT throw so many long-term contracts at you that they may as well eliminate them. By comparison, myTeam doles out 3-5 game contracts (three games, really?), which doesn't come close to filling out a team of starters + bench players.

Does anyone have any tips to maintaining a decent stockpile of contracts? Any help would be appreciated as I really want to enjoy myTeam this year. Thanks!

Also, I agree about the other games..not sure why NBA 2k is the only one that does this contract thing

This is my very first year ever playing My team. I've been playing alot of Triple Threat and getting contracts thru rewards

I'm sure in a month or so I'm going to have a different/better way to get contracts though

Re: Let's Talk Contracts

Triple Threat sounds like a smart move, since you're only using three players at a time. In Domination, Challenges, etc., its seems as though the bench players consume contracts whether they actually play or not.

Yeah I was wondering that. If bench players who dont actually play still lose contracts

Pretty messed up if they do

Re: Let's Talk Contracts

Itís actually really easy to keep going. Just put the cards you have with no contracts into triple threat and choose to buy contracts for them. Easily purchasable with about 200 MT for a 5 game contract. As long as you win 1 triple threat game, you cover a player for 5 games. If you do even halfway decent in domination, that should almost be enough MT to get a 5 game contract for 3 players.

Some advice I got a while ago that helped me was to save actual contracts for my top tier players.
  • Save your best players for online challenges and the high difficulty offline challenges. Use your contract cards on them only. Preferably amethyst tier and higher.
  • Make a separate squad for easy offline challenges full of bronze, silver, and golds that you can win with and refill their contracts with the mt you get from those challenges. They are cheaper.
  • Switch out bronze and silver role players when their contracts run out to save even more mt. Reward cards acquired with tokens can also be swapped regularly.
Once you get the formula down you build up mt and contracts in no time.

Thanks for the tips

I only play offline, so that may help even more

And I hadn't thought about the seperate lineups thing. I'll have to do that

Re: Let's Talk Contracts

Thanks for the advice guys. I am doing something similar to what was suggested, my bench is full of bronze players that I cycle out when their contracts expire. At least that way I don't have to worry about my bench players consuming contracts.

The only thing I don't like about saving my best players for big games is, well, I got them for a reason; to use them in all games. I couldn't imagine FUT where I have to save Messi for certain matches, or MUT where I have to save Brady for big games.

P.S.: I also only play offline, which should help.
