NBA 2K14 CREW Mode – 3v3 & 5v5 Blacktop To 21

Posted September 13, 2013 by Simon in News


2K Sports has confirmed the details for NBA 2K14 “CREWS” mode. Unfortunately, it’s not all good news for CREW fans.

NBA 2K14’s Crew mode will be on the blacktop to 21. NBA 2K14 fans have requested to play in the arena’s but we will instead be on the blacktop and won’t play full games, but instead we will play to 21.

Check out the full article from 2K Sports:

First off, Crews has seen some changes since its last appearance in NBA 2K11 but the focus of BALANCE this time around was a major emphasis. This year, in NBA 2K14, the gameplay is both smooth and the team did a phenomenal job of improving defense in every way.


You can take your MyPLAYER through his career, build him up in the MyCAREER mode, and prep him for online battles. Your gameday attire will be reflected on your MyPLAYER during matches. Games can be either 3v3 on half-court, or 5v5 on full-court. These will be played on a blacktop court to reflect the pick-up game style of basketball. The games will be to 21. This allows us to focus on the sport of basketball in a unique way leveraging the street-style basketball in a competitive way.

 This year, you can claim your Crew’s team name, crew abbreviation and represent your city. Jerseys can be customized in a myriad of ways including colors, home and away jerseys, logos and even different jersey designs.

 Once you get your Crew created, it’s time to begin recruiting. You can invite friends into your Crew. Losing a lot? The Crew Manager can drop members of the Crew or disband the Crew entirely so assemble accordingly. The competition is waiting.

 As soon as you’re ready to start taking on other Crews, know that everything will be tracked from a statistical standpoint. The introduction of leaderboards will also help identify the top Crews in the world tracking a number of stats and results.

 I should also note the settings for Crew games – Superstar Sim. From my time with the game, these were some of my favorite settings, as well as our Community Team Up members who previewed the game early and got hands on impressions. The goal was to make it feel as competitive as possible.

 Balance was a focus, especially as the new defensive improvements were incorporated in the game this year. With the introduction of more signature skills, better physicality and the new, awe-inspiring blocking targeting system, defense will play a major part in Crews. Furthermore, the team made sure to incorporate FATIGUE, which was tuned specifically for Crews to make it even more realistic. Again, the focus was making a balanced, competitive game mode despite the progression of individual MyPLAYERS.

    I think its weak that you can pay real $$$ for skill points. Whats the use of really playing the season and getting better. If I can be a 99 overall in just 1 day if I pay $60.00. Talk about they wanna make a level playing field let skill points come from playing the game. They just want your money. That’s a Rip Off.

    Really? Are you serious? How hard is it to make it for 4 quarters? Whats the hold up? The hackers? Maybe if you guys fixed your freaking servers and were more dedicated too them maybe that wouldnt be a problem! CREW lovers arent going to be happy with this. 2k’s motto ” If it aint broke, water it down” what a joke smh…

    How fucking hard is it to revamp an old version? I dont think it really takes that much to Fine tune an old version of a game mode. NOBODY WANTED A GAME TO 21 AT ALL. Its like 2k thinks they here what we say and do what they think is best. At least microsoft listened to its negative feedback and changed shit. and thats an entire console. Really cant change the coding to 4 quarters 5 minutes? Get real 2k seriously
