Takeovers

Some guides say that you have to pick the correct takeovers to make a replica build work, in our experience that isn’t the case so pick whatever ones you’d prefer. It is possible this changes based on the console (i.e current gen vs. next gen).

This is all the information you need to unlock the Joel Embiid build.. Upon completing the build you will be rewarded with an easter egg showing your player has shades of “The Process”.

Play Style

This is quite a solid build to replicate the real exploits of Embiid. It is firmly focused on finishing at the rim but it has enough shooting power to make you a threat if left alone, which Embiid is. Defensively it isn’t quite as good as the real big-man but the blocking and rebounding ability should see you through any challenges.
