What was meant to be a successful NBA 2K17 event had turned into a disaster. The highly anticipated After Dark mode in the game's My Park was unleashed on Saturday. Unfortunately, contrary to what most expected, it didn't meet expectations. Here's why it possibly resulted to such.
According to International Business Times, 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.
Aside from the crashing, players were also complaining about bugs during the launch night. There were those who, despite being able to log, can't see the event running. Thanks to the bug, some players thought that the mode wasn't happening at all. And this wasn't taken lightly by the community, as some call it a complete "trash."
