2K Sports has gone too far with the VC system.
I agree, I don't like playing NBA 2k anymore. My last nba game was 2k12. It was better with just skill points for everything
2k got greedy when they saw people would just BUY coins to max out their player, it's sad really.
very unfair too in my team when your starting off n your opponent has an all-star lineup
Pay to pay model.
I'm glad that more people are starting to see this issue and call them out on it, but where was all the outrage since 2k13 ? They did it there too. I think more people have picked up 2k14 on the new systems since there was slim pickings at launch that wouldn't normally buy it so now its becoming more and more known throughout gaming circles. Hope enough people notice and complain, and make them change it back. Hate having my MyCareer player not playable when their servers are down.......
I played 2k12 for the past two years, loved the game. I purchased 2K14 and hated it because of the VC (and server issues). I spent countless hours with 2k12, got my money back for 2k14, and I guess my basketball days are over as long as I am asked to pay "$60 as an entry fee" to play the game. Sure, I can download the app and get extra VC, hundreds and thousands per day... but I shouldn't have to, I should be able to earn those points in game, playing the game, not having to go to my tablet every day to play the lottery, pick winners in real games, and hope for new locker codes. This game is a mess and doesn't deserve the ratings it received from the media because it is unplayable as is (or at least it is for me).
"Sure, I can download the app and get extra VC, hundreds and thousands per day..." Even the app is having issues. As of the recent update, logging in has been problematic.
Oh, so the app isn't even working now... That reminds me, like I said, I didn't buy NBA 2k13 because I was still trying to reach the Hall of Fame in NBA 2k12, so I continued to play... with VC the way it is I am sure the APP will not provide bonus VC once NBA 2k15 comes out, meaning I wouldn't be able to play the game for two years and actually earn enough VC to make it worth while.
I think the fact your saves get lost and you can't ever connect is a bigger issue with this piece of cr*p game.
Another sad fall of a great game heading into the irresistible (for devs and publishers) pay to win category or pay so you dont have to grind your life away. Sadly If I have learned anything it's that they can easily lose many sales and still come out way ahead, because people with lots of money DGAF what they spend it on. You have people spending 100s of dollars and even thousands for microtransactions these days, it more then makes up for the gamer who drops the game because of microtransactions.
