Best read this week. I hope they make all microtransactions illegal in the end. ( Wont happen but a man can dream right?!)

I’ve played every 2K since Dreamcast with AI on the cover, the game is broken now and completely pay to win, it’s sad really. I ignore these modes (myteam and mycareer) as they are obviously pay to win and I feel for casuals you don’t want to grind and just spend the money. No other game is so obnoxious and obscure when it comes to buying virtual currency. You can buy $100 worth and wind up with just an average player and if you don’t know what you’re doing you can spend $100 or more and just waste it on a bad build of a player. Once you put the points on a player it’s gone. Just wrong 2k and they should have to change this.

Wow that sounds atrocious. Why do people even support scummy companies like 2K anymore?

I’m old enough to remember when NBA 2K was actually a great experience.

Yea but those are great numbers lol.

You aren’t wrong. Take Two has figured out how to monetize the franchise. That is for sure!

Lmao how 🤣🤣 I tried getting into sports games but I get so bored of it, I'd rather play a multiplayer game and I don't even care for online games like that 🤣

Crazy that SEGA actually sold off their sports dev teams. Look at all this money they've been missing out on since then. Another stupid business decision, one of many.
