2K And Ronnie Singh Address Unhappy NBA 2K20 Fans Via Twitter

The launch of NBA 2K20 has been one of the rockiest in recent memory.

While there are positive signs as of Wednesday with fixes for MyTeam and MyCareer already taking effect, the publisher and its most visible representative took time to address their community via Twitter.

A #FIXNBA2K20 hashtag was trending earlier this week as the game, which launched on September 6, came available with a bevy of issues. From aspects of MyTeam being unavailable, to frozen rep in the Neighborhood, shaky servers and a MyCareer menu tab that disappeared intermittently, this has been one of the buggiest final versions of 2K in the series’ history.

Fans were right to voice their opinions. However, there were some members of the community who piled on with complaints about things that weren’t bugs, but more a lack of adjustment to a different style of gameplay.

My review of the game held 2K accountable for a few omissions from the feature set, but I didn’t hammer them with my score because I was confident the problems wouldn’t be long-term. It appears that will be the case as fixes are coming in every day. I stand behind my score, because at the core, the gameplay isn’t perfect, but it’s still really good.

Ronnie Singh specifically came under fire because he gave out incorrect information on the game prior to release. Chief among the missteps was his claim that fans would be able to re-spec their MyPlayers if they didn’t like the way their build was performing. That turned out to be false, and with so many other issues drawing the ire of fans, this mishap only created more negative attention.

It was nice to see 2K and Ronnie address the community, but ultimately the organization still needs to appoint individuals whose sole responsibility is to relay information between the fans and the developers. At any rate, this is a great start as 2K works feverishly to clean up the NBA 2K20 launch problems.
