NBA 2K20 was released just under two weeks ago on September 6th, and users have already begun to gripe about the new game. The game is considered to be one of if not the very best of its kind so it is quite surprising that so many people have nothing but bad things to say about it. They have mentioned problems such as bugs, aggressive micro-transactions, and missing features as well. The complaints have even led to a hashtag on Twitter: #Fix2K20.
Many of the issues are stemming from the online version of the game. It has been reported that the servers begin to crash because of the high volume of users that it is getting. Once this happens, virtually half of the game becomes inaccessible and it would be expected that anyone who paid for this game would be a little irritated. There was also mention that a few promised features did not make their debut in this year’s version of NBA 2K. For example, there was supposed to new parks in a portion of the game deemed “The Neighborhood”, but it is the same one from last year.
Another fault with the game that was pointed out was the aspect of the virtual currency that the game has. It is available for purchase with real-world money or can be earned by winning games. It is then used to raise stats. However, players have reported that even though they have the VC, their stats remain the same or in some cases become lower than they were, to begin with.
Overall the game is not satisfying those that have it and many are being cautioned against buying it altogether. Unfortunately, most of the issues cannot be fixed my a simple software patch. NBA 2K announced on Twitter that they “are working around the clock to prepare an upcoming patch that will address other significant issues.” Hopefully, these problems will be fixed sooner than later so that users can get back to playing the game that they used to love so much.
