Earlier today, we covered the #Fix2K20 movement on social media, as gamers are frustrated with the problems that have plagued NBA 2K20 thus far. Today, the 2K team released a patch for the game, but did it fix the major issues with the game?
NBA 2K20 Updates
Before the release of the patch, NBA 2K20 players were greeted this morning with a message notifying them that an update was available. The update wasn’t a full-blown patch, but more of a “hotfix” designed to adjust the speed and stamina of players, according to NBA 2K‘s Mike Wang. However, the update seemed to make things worse, as gamers noticed that players were moving way too fast, so much so that centers were moving just as fast as speedy guards.

In response to the backlash, Wang wrote on Twitter that the update was indeed bugged. Wang wrote that “park speeds were boosted a bit further than desired and will be toned down” as soon as possible.
The park speeds were boosted a bit further than desired and will be toned down asap. Apologies.

On top of that, a patch for NBA 2K20 was released today. The patch takes up approximately 8 GB of space, and it had many gamers excited. However, a major issue is that we don’t have a clear idea as to what has been fixed. As of this writing, there have been no patch notes released. But what makes matters worse is that apparently none of the major issues have been fixed.
Gamers have reported that rep progression is still glitched, and that loading screens are still giving players issues. And gamers have not held back on social media, as there have been many tweets pointing out that despite the new patch, many of the issues still remain.

Patch did nothing from what I’m hearing. Please address the bigger issues!

And yet again, #Fix2K20 is trending nationally on Twitter. #FireRonnie2K is also trending, as gamers have gotten frustrated over his lack of help during this situation.

How about everyone who’s tweeting the hashtag close your app and play something else ? Or get some fresh air . We don’t needa play that game or give it any recognition until @Ronnie2K is fired , or until the rep is fixed ! #fireronnie2k #fix2k20 #fixnba2k20
