When we were given the opportunity to interview the NBA 2K22 development team, we decided to step back and delegate the questions to the people who are most likely to put in the most effort into this game: the intrepid lineup of E-Gilas, the Philippine national team for NBA 2K22 MT. We were pleasantly surprised by how well the game turned out.(We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Aljon Shintarou Cruzin for his assistance in setting this up.)

Ever since they first came together in 2020, E-Gilas has had a particularly successful year. They took home two gold medals at the recent Fiba Esports Opens, defeating long-time rivals Indonesia and establishing themselves as a dominant force in the NBA 2K franchise in the region.

Questions about the upcoming game NBA 2K22 have been answered

For Visual Concepts, which recently unveiled the latest iteration of the NBA 2K franchise, E-Gilas posed the following question to them:What exactly is the difference between the 2K21 MT next gen and the 2K22 MT next-gen? Is it true that we're going to abangan? Enjoy the Playoffs with superstar-level streaming and take advantage of a special offer on NBA League Pass! Visual Concepts kept their response to a minimum in an emailed response, saving more details for gameplay deep dives that will be revealed in August and September, according to the company. They did, however, tease their upgrades on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field.

The representative explained that “shot timing is more dynamic and takes into consideration more variables, such as energy and defensive pressure.”They went on to say that mastering the shot meter and knowing your signature shot will give players a significant advantage this year. You're not a shooter? In a "new shot contest and blocking system," more defensive options will be available. Specifically, they stated that the new blocking system "more accurately rewards making a good play, getting into a good position, and timing block attempts properly."

In general, players who spend time learning the ins and outs of their controlled player will be rewarded in NBA 2K22.“In addition, a slew of new signature dribble moves and combos have been included.“Players who put in the effort to learn their combos and master their signature moves will be extremely difficult to stop in a one-on-one match,” the developers stated. As a result, we have a little more insight into the more "skill-based" offense and increased defensive focus that NBA 2K22 promised in its first developer blog, which was published just a few days earlier.

A second question from E-Gilas was about how the game will deal with connectivity issues, which are a common problem for gamers in developing countries. Visual Concepts, on the other hand, did not respond to this particular question.
