Niantic itself has reviewed some of the most important details of the game beyond its exploration mechanics to sign players or find power-ups. In NBA All-World we must go building our team challenging the stars that we find ourselves on our way which will allow us to sign them.
If we meet them again we can play again to practice our shot and earn more credits and improve our team with players that we can enhance with different plays or energy or physical bonuses.
also we will find more than 100,000 pigs basketball games in the real world in which we can face our friends or other players in the world in different challenges to get more improvements and, finally, for collectors there will also be rare or special kits that will help us stand out from the crowd.
