Developers please read
Overall I think this is a great game. The gameplay for mobile is amazing and it’s entertaining. The only thing I ask from developers is to give us a little more control of in game control and rules. Give us the option to turn off auto pass because I’ll be driving down the court ready to pull up and I let off the directional stick for one second and my player automatically fires a pass that I didn’t press for that often leads to a turnover, which is really annoying. Give us options as to allow which calls to be made in game, for example the three second violation I feel glitches a lot because my player will be called for three seconds but he’s not even in the paint which again results in an annoying unnecessary turnover. Lastly give us a few more ways to earn coins, I get y’all trying to make money and I respect but maybe adding coins as a prize for completing a season and winning the finals would be good. That way we’re still earning the coins by playing the game and it gives people like me who really can’t spare money because it’s so tight now a days a chance to get coins to buy packs and level up my teams/players. Anyway like I said overall this is a great game and I love playing it it’s really fun and worth the download. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a new game.
Really annoying issues
First let me say I still like playing it I just think these things need to be improved on. First thing that I want to talk about and it drives me crazy is some times and it seems like it happens frequently is I’ll make a player take a shot and the player will do that and the ball will bounce around on the rim not go anywhere near out of bounds and then fall into the basket or bounce off the rim and players will attempt to rebound it but before either of those things happens I get an out of bounds call. Really annoying problem. I also deal with I knock a ball loose and the ai players after I knock it loose will run away from the ball instead of towards it. And the last thing is when your defending and it happens all to often to me at least where a guy will get stuck in his defensive stance and run really slow. I think if these issues get fixed I’ll enjoy the game a lot more. Like I said I still play it. Oh and there was one other thing I wanted to say and it doesn’t have to do with fixing anything. So you have the domination mode that you can play and you earn point for taking over another city. Why not give point for defending the city successfully and on top of that of you defend it more than once you get more point until you reach a certain point like defending your city five times maxed it out and every time you defend after that those points are what you get whenever you defend until the city is taken from you. Just a thought.
Great game, but another thing..
By aaron vincent v
This game is super fun but all I ask is that we could be able to listen to bops while playing, that would make the experience so much more enjoyable- thanks!
Hey, I was playing an online match I was guaranteed to win, I was totally crushing this dude who had more trophies then me and he was using players that were too low for my 5th team.. and then I just slid up on my phone to turn the brightness down cuz I was on 10% and then I got disqualified from my match. Sometimes I can answer quick messages and come back to my game but simply lowering the brightness made me lose what a possible gold pack? What’s up with that?
Also I feel like this game is hella fair, besides the coin system which basically lets you pay two dollars for a little over a month’s worth of the checklist (cuz there’s a chance u get the impossible vert jump and get set back 15 coins) and the sets system where I just got my first diamond after logging in for a month and have plenty of Sapphires but am still missing a single gold player to finish the set, plus it’s nearly impossible to finish the emerald set cuz they seem rarer than the ruby’s and sapphire’s.. regardless the normal set system isn’t really an issue at all, but it could be improved. Anyways keep making this game better and I’ll stay ballin!
Better than everyone is saying
Really fun and addictive game. After reading some reviews, I have noticed some common themes. First of all, many have claimed that there is not a dribble stick. There is one, but it must be turned on in the options menu. Second, many people complain about stamina and being limited to a few games per hour. I think it’s a smart decision by 2k, as it gives casual players an advantage over pay-to-play. Third, many people complain about ratings. Ratings are not based on percentages, but rather seem to be based on a 1-100 scale. For example, a rating of 45 for three does not mean the player will make a three point shot 45% of the time. And fourth, a lot of people complain that they cannot progress easily by getting better players. I have found the best way to do this is through the weekend events. In order to do well in them, one must be semi-dedicated, but it will reward you without having to pay. All-in-all, a great game. I’m excited to see the new head to head mode. My one suggestion would be to make crafting a little bit rewarding. I haven’t ever been able to craft a better player than I already had. Keep up the good work!
Paid to win and barely fair
First thing I like the graphics and somewhat the controls. But the problem is, it’s too paid to win. The only way to get gold+ players is to either use a lot of money or farm a lot. If I want to get a sapphire player, I would need sapphire rings which players can only get from season or league. It would be extremely difficult because it requires a good team above emerald. So that’s the first problem for me. The second problem is that the defense is garbage. Most of the times my players would not even be covering a man and staying inside the perimeter instead of covering up their man. It’s very irritating because the cpu is just going to be able to sink in a shot every time if my player doesn’t guard them. The game has a lot of potential, but the fact that it’s so paid to win and the defense isn’t that great makes this game fall off. The game is also barely even fair at all. Players miss open layups and shots while the CPU makes almost every shot. I have an emerald Donovan Mitchell and he can barely shoot for his life. How can you have someone open and never make it. It’s not fair. My release is barely off of perfect but it still misses. If it’s too late, then the shot is short. If it’s a little early, it still misses. Not even having a perfect release can help you because the CPU has hall of fame lockdown defense. You don’t even have a 50% chance of making a shot with a perfect release. This game definitely needs to be worked on.
Good game but needs tweaking and balancing.
The game is great but you could have a 2900 power team and still struggle a lot to beat a 2500 power team. Needs some tweaking. Most of my shots will be released on the gold/green color and still only make about 40% of my shots when uncontested. The AI seems to make about 75% of their shots wether contested or not. Crafting cards should also be more rewarding. The way it’s set up, by the time you’re able to craft a good card your team is already so good that the card you crafted is not good enough for your team. The game is amazing, just needs to be balanced a bit in my opinion. Another thing is packs are wayyyyy too expensive when your team gets past 2000 power. You either need to get REALLY lucky getting the best player on a cheap pack or spend $50 to get ONE good player. should also offer better players in more expensive packs. I’d hate to buy a pack for 2,500 coins and only get a useless 900 rated green card. (It happened) Picks are also very unrewarding. Most of my resets are either rings or keys which are useless because by the time you have enough rings to craft your team is already way past that tier. I’ve been in the Amethyst tier for about a week. I’ve gotten like 40 resets and only one NONE of those have been an Amethyst player. However I have gotten about 4-5 amethyst rings....
Great gameplay besides it being all P2W
It’s safe to say the graphics have had a massive improvement compared to NBALM. The characters look almost real, have facial animations and body animations not seen before on mobile, besides NBALM. The cutscenes make it all the more closer to a 2K experience, and the ones on the bench and crowd always react to my dunks, making it more exciting for me. The one thing about the gameplay that bothers all of us is the fact that you can barely shoot and make it in, even with a green shot. The defense is also pretty bad in some moments, but it doesn’t bother me much. Now the in-app purchases honestly kill me. There is almost no way to earn coins, besides doing league which only gives you 5 coins, and keep in mind that most packs are like 2,000 coins, and you only have stamina for three league matches, meaning you would have to cough up money, more than $40 I’d imagine if you want a slight chance of earning gold cards or above. The other way is through daily objectives, but even that’s a grind sometimes because you earn 35 coins for completing 5 daily objectives. The progression is very slow due to that and me not wanting to spend money on this. That progress will keep you with crappy cards for a while, but grind through it, and someday you’ll get good.
game depends on money
Simply put, the game depends on money. The majority of sports games now depend on money, so it’s not such a big deal. Still, the game depends on players, which need coins. You’ll usually get around 60 coins doing your tasks which you can do again around 6 hours. Additionally, you buy energy for other game-modes, but that costs money. I understand you can wait to get some of the energy, but having to wait for 10 minutes just to play a half of a game gets old. And then there’s packs. To get very good players, you have to get usually more than 2000 coins for a player that may not even be guaranteed! There’s another problem, how if you want to stay alive in head-to-head, you have to use three point shooters. It feels like your just having to get good luck in order to stay in a game. Whoever has better luck, 3 point shooters, and rebounders, they win. The other problems are matchmaking and the bad lag, the latter possibly being me. Matchmaking is not that good, you’ll have a all gold team and your match will have a all emerald team. Otherwise, it’s a good game and you should download it. I think on a scale of 1 to 5, it’s a 3.8. Pretty good graphics, the animations are moderately smooth, and a good variety of game modes, just don’t give too much money away to this game.
Paid to unless satisfied with grinding
Funds are key to being successful to the game. Unless you enjoy grind you heart out 3-6 hrs a DAY a “few” dollars come come in handy. Coins are ridiculously hard to earn. Since we all have “one”life to live and enjoy more codes should be available to attract more fans and more playtime with increase of active players / returning players. Commentary is a huge need with gameplay. The excitement and word by word gameplay would really put me and other plays a “ remarkable” experience as if were playing on console. Stats would be fairly professional like as if on a
Live broadcasting with interviews, fan interactions etc . Another suggestion I have is 1/250 games a random fan runs onto the court and does what a fan would do in that situation and have them restrained by security. The game is in a great shape with many improvements to be made and just more interactions with the game/company to fans/players. OG aka die heart fans should get special rewards for playing 1 yr 6 months + or at least from now to a few months after release who are active btw. Graphics are incredible I give you amazing credits compared to NBA 2k 2020 which charges 5.99 (plus tax) for the full experience. That is you enojoy low quality graphics. Many big things are on the way keep grinding , working hard , giving your all effort and energy thank you for everything .🤝
Bad modes that require too much time
The mods in this game are sooo bad like why is there a mod that requires you to constantly check the game like every 20 minutes a day like because I like the game does not mean I’m going to play if for 24 hours like what the heck the domination mod is soo Annoying in the rules it doesn’t say how everything works I had to personally research how it works how do you put a game mod and not show the full rules sometimes I think you guys are not even trying by the way this game is pay to win but I’m not going to spend a dime on you stingy idiots we’ve had this stupid modes for tooo long can’t you guys bring Something new to the game the game is boring there is only on mode for actually playing the game,
that is seasons and it gets boring and also why would you guys make a myplayer mod that is offline are the developers retarded like this game is a trash I’m not surprised and thing that has to do with take two interactive is bad look they have ruined the GTA company not they are ruining 2k freak take two I hope they shut down all they want is money they don’t even care about the fan i know nobody is going to respond because unlike epic games you guys don’t respond, there is also a glitch with the backboard there is a place in the backboard if the ball hits it says out of bound which isn’t possible because a backboard in in the country it has happened to me about 30 times it’s soo annoying
