I was browsing the NBA 2K Sports Forums and noticed a thread about My2K Rank. It talked about what everybody's My2k ranks were and what they meant. A question was asked about how do you get your My2K rank to a Hall of Fame level. In the picture to the right, I thought I would show you my badge so you can see proof that I really indeed did get the Hall of Fame badge. I think whenever you read anything online about NBA 2K12 that you really question the information you find because a lot of people say stuff that's just not true. It then gets spread around the internet like it is fact.
In the forums over at 2K, I was the only one who said they had achieved Hall of Fame status. This got me to thinking that it must be a lot harder to achieve than I thought and therefore mean a lot more than I thought as well. The funny thing is that I've had it for months. Well, I say I, but I'm sure that "The Kid" had a big part in it as he played a lot of the modes that probably helped us reach that status.
So, it also got me wondering exactly how to raise your My2K rank and build it to a Hall of Fame level. No one really seemed to know. Fortunately, I have been sending all of my achievements to my twitter feed. Here's a picture of my twitter feed the day I picked up the badge.
I didn't realize it but I've actually raised my 2krank to Hall of Fame level badge twice according to my twitter feed. Here's the announcement the second time. This probably had something to do with the freeze issue or online problems I'm guessing.
There are several My2K rank levels you have to reach. Everyone starts out as a Rookie. The next levels are Pro, All-star, Superstar and then finally the highest My2K rank level of Hall of Fame. Each My2K rank level, except Hall of Fame has certain numbers like Pro 1, All-star 2, etc. I think there are 4 or 5 levels to each badge.
How long did it take for me to get my My2K rank to Hall of Fame level in NBA2k12? It took me exactly 102 days.
If you are trying to figure out how to reach the Hall of Fame rank, these are the things we did to build our rank and get our Hall of Fame badge:
- Completed the NBA's 15 greatest games.
- Started several My Players
- Started training camp
- Played online in quick matches
- Played a couple of team up games
- Started several Creating a Legend files
- Achieved several milestones in My Player and Creating a Legend
- Achieved several team and NBA records in My Player and Creating a Legend
- Played and simmed a bunch of seasons in an offline Association winning the NBA Finals and getting MVP's several times
- Joined an Online Association and played some
- Bought the downloadable content
- Played horse in the DLC
- Beat all the players in the two on two part of the DLC
- Played a ton of games
- Played a season file
- Used practice mode a lot
- Did some playoffs
- Created our own players and teams
I personally think that in order to get your Hall of Fame My2K rank, you have to play a bunch of games, achieve several milestones and play (but not necessarily complete) all the modes in the game. For example, I didn't complete training camp until after I got my badge but I'm not a 100 percent sure.
My suggestion is to make sure that you play a lot of games and do something in every mode in the game.
It is also possible that the downloadable content I bought had an impact on that, but I'm not saying that as fact. We didn't achieve Hall of Fame level until after Christmas when we got that to check out. It could just have been a matter of timing. I'm not sure if it mattered. We didn't tweet all of our achievements to the twitter feed, but if you want to look back at all our tweets by checking out Coach2K's twitter feed. You might as well follow me while you are there if you have a twitter account.
