The NFL season had its first big Sunday today, meaning most of the attention on social media went to the teams that played today. Despite that, NBA 2K20 is now trending nationally, and it’s not for good reasons.
Early Woes for NBA 2K20
NBA 2K20 was released nationally and worldwide on September 6. The game was hyped for months by the 2K team, as the developers promised improvements to Neighborhood, MyGM and MyCareer. In addition, the 2K team also promised gamers improvements to the gameplay through the implementation of better mechanics, ball handling styles, and improvements to the AI. Now that the game is out, players now have the chance to see if 2K20 is worth all the hype, and let’s just gamers are not all that impressed thus far.
On social media, gamers have sounded off on the game, writing that the game has many flaws that a finished product just shouldn’t have. This issues include incredibly long loading screens, the inability to progress and acquire new badges, as well as gameplay and server issues. Here are a just a few of the tweets that have been sent out regarding the issues:

This is getting outta hand. Half my team can’t get anymore progression. No problem people say let’s keep playing getting better. Nope one by one the players got removed then the team just disappeared on its own. #fix2k20

Needless to say, but gamers are not happy with the current product. NBA 2K20 players are angry, and it has do with with the fact that many of the features of the game are bugged and need patching. And there are plenty of them that have voiced their opinion on the game thus far.
In fact, 2K players have been able to get the phrase #Fix2K20 trending nationally in the United States, and is at #2 at the time of this article. On top of that, gamers have also targeted NBA 2K‘s Ronnie Singh for false advertising. NBA 2K players have started a petition on Change.org, asking for Singh to be fired for false advertising. While that most likely won’t be happening, there’s a strong chance that there will be a patch in the coming days to remedy the problems. The big question is, how long will the 2K team let these issues linger?
