Last straw, I'm done with this game.

This game was always one of those grindy, essentially no long term value for your effort, but at least had some sense of progression and improvement. Everything ****Daddy has done has indicated how much of a money grab they envision this game to be. It is not this past update but a series of steps that has continuously indicated that they don't care about the player experience, if anything they seem to tailor their responses seemingly to piss off the most people possible. If that was indeed your intention, hats off to you, you did a great job.

Update after update that continuously screw players both free and paying and a PR department that leaves me wondering who I hate seeing more: NWGameDad or Ronnie2k. They are an insult to the intelligence of everyone reading them, absolutely ignoring the most obvious problems and cherry picking questions with completely obtuse responses. Over and over, a claim that the developers listen to the players is made, but this is so obviously not the case that it is an affront to the English language that those sentences were typed in.

Not only has this last debacle confirmed my decision to quit myNBA2k, it has caused me to quit supporting NBA2k itself. I will not be buying any future games in the series unless a total overhaul of the game system is made. It's a shame because the basketball aspect of 2k is superb, it's just everything else other than the basketball that is dreadful, the mobile app included now too. I may come back if serious revisions are made to improve the actual player experience but my feelings toward this franchise have been severely muddied.

I won't ask for others to join me, as this is my decision, but I would be interested in seeing if others have similar thoughts, and would be otherwise at least boycotting the game temporarily or will not be spending money in the app that they would have otherwise. I'll finish up my star season just to laugh at the pathetic rewards I get and that will be it.


This is the last thing I'll say, many may disagree with it but I felt I needed to vent. CatDaddy, you have to realize this game isn't really all that fun to begin with. People enjoy it because they input their own values and rewards into it, not because of anything you do. If the cards didn't have the names of NBA or WWE players on them, no one would play this game. Stop trying to remove the fun from a game that honestly barely has it to begin with.

Re: Last straw, I'm done with this game.

I had a little time to reflect about what specific grievences I had and I posted this in the other thread but I figure I might as well copy it over here as well:




The biggest problem with this app the entire time has always been the customer service aspect of it. Star Season (and other tiers) rewards are too good? Fine, then nerf them and explain why it was too much and caused players at the top to advance too quickly so the rewards are scaled down to even out the progression at all levels. Don't make some passive-aggressive comment about how all the players were clammering for free credits so you're doing them a favor with this change. And don't even pretend that the 400 credits are equivalent with 2 star cards. Admit that the rewards were too much and you are trying to scale them down while also infusing credits into the community to grease the AH wheels.


Everything CD does, first of all, generally sucks for the players, but then they wrap everything with a spin of patronizing the players. "Don't worry, this is better for all of you". "There's nothing wrong with the OFF stat, we've studied the distributions and it's fair". There are absolutely problems in this game. That's fine, no one expects a perfect game. But when you pretend like everything is fine and the people asking questions are idiots, that's when you cross a line. People cannot support a game created by a company they despise. I'm not even sure if the hate NWGameDad receives is fair because he's most likely forced to abide by a script the company gives him and he's just a face to company policy, barred from actually speaking his own opinion. If anything, he should be pitied for being placed in the whipping boy position by CD. So it's not a personal sort of hate directed towards him, but that which he is forced to represent, his professional persona so to speak. CD treats us like idiots with money in our pockets, I think most people would agree with that statement.


Honestly, I think this patch as it is could have been made and received decently by the player base if CD was willing to actually explain why they did what they did. Instead they lie and pretend that it's all in the players' best interests when it's so overtly clear how much of a moneygrab it is. We wouldn't have liked them but we would have accepted them. I'm more insulted by the explanations than the changes.
