On Saturday, the highly anticipated After Dark mode in the game’s My Park was unleashed, what this means was that NBA 2K17 had turned into a disaster. Unluckily, which is completely contrary than previous expected, apparently, it didn’t meet expectations, there are some reasons, that’s probably why it resulted to such.
2K Games, on the contrary, deemed the event a successful one. Both Ronnie 2K and Chris Manning can attest to this. But of course, at the end of the day, it’s the fan base who has to stand as the judge. NBA 2K17 players were reportedly facing a lot of issues during the After Dark event in My Park mode.
For instance, when they’re trying to login, they’re randomly kicked. Some also pointed out that joining pickup games (i.e. one-on-one, two-on-two and three-on-three) was almost impossible. These issues were believed to have been due to the game’s server frequently crashing.
Many believed that the problem rooted from the fact that a truckload of players are trying to enter simultaneously. And unfortunately for 2K games, they seemed to have no control on it. As a result, the crashing happen. But had the studio anticipated it beforehand, things might have gone smoothly.
The NBA 2K17 After Dark mode was there to bring a virtual party. Think of it as a concert sort of thing, only that it’s done in-game. Among the rappers who spearheaded the event is no other than Snoop Dogg. But it seems, as what it turned out, even the singer himself wasn’t able to mitigate the problem.
In addition to the crashing, for some avid players, during the launch night, they were also complaining about bugs. Since there were those who, even if they being able to log, however, can’t see the event running. Due to the bug, some players deemed that the mode wasn’t happening at all. It’s said to that this wasn’t taken lightly by the community, since some call it a entire “trash”.
