Also, several gamers complained about having to pay large amounts of Virtual Currency (VC) to purchase After Dark accessories and clothing that could not be equipped immediately. While they did eventually receive the purchased items, most gamers could not take their MyPlayers to the virtual courts.
It is important to note that many of these issues were faced on launch night. It is fair to say that the After Dark mode has been a disaster thus far. However, 2K will very likely fix the bugs in the coming days.
Most gamers felt let down because 2K couldn’t deliver despite all the hype leading into Saturday. While the After Dark mode is now a regular feature, 2K Sports is expected to stage more special occasions with concerts, the way it tried this past weekend.
Even though 2K representatives Ronnie 2K and Chris Manning deemed “After Dark” a success, many gamers went on lengthy trades on social media and Reddit, expressing their unhappiness surrounding the launch.
Those who frequent the My Park mode are aware of the issues faced by gamers on a daily basis, such as players being randomly kicked out or not being allowed to join a one-on-one, two-on-two or three-on-three pickup games. Sadly, these issues continued to haunt gamers as the 2K servers seemingly crashed for a considerable period of time.
Perhaps, it was a case of many gamers trying to log on simultaneously, but 2K could do very little to accommodate the volume of players. The After Dark mode was supposed to integrate a virtual party mode into My Park courtesy a concert from rapper Snoop Dogg. However, most gamers never witnessed the concert despite numerous attempts to get into games.
Having said that, for 2K, a clearer idea have been surfaced, what to expect going forward. suppose that 2K launches a new patch to addressed the prevailing issues in the MyPark mode, we won’t be surprising.
