Unfortunately, the MyCareer mode suffers from several pitfalls that have plagued the series for many years now. Because your performance throughout games is built on the same grade system used in previous iterations You are often penalized for actions that are out of your control . As an example, a player might be assigned to defend an opponent in a particular way, but when faced by a screen, you choose to fight over it and follow the designated player.
Randomly, the player assigned to them becomes switched with the person who screened you. The player who screened you, and then runs towards the opposite end of the court. This court is now left open and unsupervised. That's when you get smacked with hefty "leave defensive assignments" and 'defensive breakdown' penalties which impact your performance and aren't really your fault. It's not a huge issue however, it has for a long time, long enough to frustrate me to the point of mentioning the issue here.
Aside from a beefier MyCareer mode, all options are basically the same. In addition, taking over an entire NBA franchise through the MyNBA mode allows you to choose and assign coaching and front office personnel to better meet the needs and goals of your team, which I have never observed affecting the court on such an meaningful level.
The W allows you to enjoy an opportunity to progress through the ranges of WNBA however, it feels basic compared to the MyCareer's main MyCareer. It strips away the personality The City had and confining those goals and strategies down to basic menus . MyTeam however is a mixed bag. Although some aspects have experienced changes, like the more frequent reward packs and cards, as well as the ever evolving and themed seasons.
