Again, progression is fixed from Weismart's blog

Again, progression is fixed, and NBA 2K21 MT all of it delivers is unlockable makeup items on a predetermined schedule. All this means is that you become a very restricted core gameplay loop very quickly, and one that is extremely reminiscent of career modes I watched on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It's tough to call The W a good first shot career-mode parity when so much of its enjoyability comes from, well, only playing with the games themselves. At least that activity is distinguishable from the remainder of NBA 2K21 while still being enjoyable -- but it had been when I was messing around with the WNBA at MyLeague last year, also.


Likewise, it's hard to criticize Visual Concepts' layout here as though pitching female avatars into the much larger world of MyCareer would be the easiest or easiest solution. The WNBA deserves to have its own career ecosystem; it is a more supportive statement to provide the WNBA its own mode, instead of just dump them into NBA 2K21's aggressively competitive multiplayer world and tell them to fend for themselves or, worse, patronize them with inflated attribute ratings.


And, as a practical matter, most NBA 2K players don't wish to maintain more than one participant avatar in a mode that's already very heavily affected by microtransactions. 2K Sports would be pilloried if it provided up WNBA players as just another vector to get real-money sales of Buy MT 2K21 digital Money.
