New York, NY– October 8, 2019 – 2K today officially confirmed details for NBA 2K20’s MyTEAM Unlimited $250,000 Tournament. The 2nd year global competition is played using the MyTEAM Unlimited mode on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, with contestants choosing any 13 player cards from their deck and competing in 5-on-5, head-to-head games with NBA rules. Qualifying is ongoing until January, when 16 qualifiers per console will compete in a single elimination tournament for a trip to NBA All-Star 2020 and the $250,000 grand prize.
The winner of last season’s NBA 2K19 tournament, Xbox One champion Dymaris Jones (SkippTooMyLou) from Detroit, defeated PS4 champion and current NBA 2K League player Christopher Anderson (TurnUpDefense) from Las Vegas to win the grand prize during NBA All-Star 2019 in Charlotte. More than one million players took part in last year’s inaugural tournament, which saw more than 15 million qualifying games played over the five-month contest.
Similar to last season’s tournament, Xbox One and PS4 contestants will play games in MyTEAM Unlimited mode to earn entry into Qualifier GameDays. Ten Unlimited wins are required to participate in each GameDay, and contestants may compete in multiple 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.
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 single elimination tournament begins January 25, with 32 qualifiers playing until only one contestant remains on each console. Both console champions will win a trip to NBA All-Star 2020 in Chicago, where they’ll attend NBA All-Star events and play a head-to-head, best-of-three series on Xbox One for the $250,000 grand prize.
