Creating your own player from scratch can be daunting. Figuring out what role to play on a team, and excelling at that role, can be very challenging without the proper guidance.
This is especially true when dealing with endorsement deals in MyCareer. With MyCareer, you control your own player, one that you can specifically craft to suit a certain position. With this in mind, you will have to walk through your entire basketball career figuring out how to make it into the big leagues.
What do Endorsement Deals do?
Endorsement Deals are a huge thing in the MyCareer mode. As the name suggests, Endorsement Deals can lead to large payouts, if you meet their demands. Different companies offer different endorsements and possible rewards, so it's best that you search through all the ones that are offered and tailor them to your play style.
What you earn
Endorsement Deals don’t just mean money, either. Endorsements also help when attempting to spread your influence and exposure ratings, buying special clothing and items, and attempting to gain more skills and attribute scores. As you go through the entirety of the game, what you say and do will impact how you're perceived. If you do the right actions in and out of the game, this will increase your exposure and potential profit that you bring to teams. If you up your popularity, your endorsement deals will also rise, and the cycle repeats itself.
How to Land Good Deals
The best thing to do when attempting to get good endorsement deals is to tailor them to your own skills and mindset as a player. For instance, if you’re a 3pt point guard, don’t take an endorsement deal where you have to make inside the paint layups and passes. Instead, state that you want a deal saying you need to hit a high 3pt average and a certain amount of points. Tailoring these endorsement deals to your strengths ensures that you will come out ahead when the game is over.
What the rewards are used for?
The rewards from these endorsement deals can be used for various things. From clothing and physical attributes, they can also be used on upgrading your player in various ways. Some money can be used to upgrade your attributes, although only slightly. Again, the rewards that you get from endorsement deals mostly come in the form of advancing your career in the NBA world.
Entities for Endorsement
There are quite a few different companies that are willing to endorse you, if you ever start making a name for yourself. These groups will be the link to getting you even more VC when playing in your games. Some of the most notable names for Endorsers are:
- Foot Locker
- Under Armour
