NBA 2K $250,000 MyTEAM UNLIMITED TOURNAMENT
This marks the second straight year in which 2K will host this tournament. Over a million players participated in qualification for last year’s tournament, as Dymaris “SkipTooMyLou” Jones took home the grand prize.
You can try to qualify via MyTEAM mode on NBA 2K20 for either Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Qualifying is already underway, and will continue into January. Qualification is open to residents (who are at least 18 years old) of the following countries:
- United States & D.C. (excluding Arizona, Connecticut, Maryland, and North Dakota)
- Canada (excluding Quebec)
- Great Britain
- Republic of Ireland
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- South Korea
Just like in 2K19’s tournament process, players will complete games in MyTEAM Unlimited mode. You must earn 10 wins in this mode to be eligible to participate in Qualifier GameDays. “During each GameDay, contestants will then compete to win as many games as possible during the four-hour time limit, earning points towards their Total Score with each win. The contestants with the top four scores on each console at the end of each GameDay will qualify for the single elimination tournament,” 2K said in a press release.
Per 2K, the dates of the four Qualifier GameDays are as follows:
● First Qualifier GameDay: October 12, 2019
● Second Qualifier GameDay: November 16, 2019
● Third Qualifier GameDay: December 14, 2019
● Fourth Qualifier GameDay: January 18, 2020
The top 16 qualifiers from each console will then battle in a single-elimination tournament that begins January 25. Once each console has crowned a champion, both players will be invited to NBA All-Star Weekend 2020 in Chicago to play in a best-of-3 series for the $250,000 grand prize.
