This is not a shot at 2Klabs. I believe they do work, their website is straightforward and beneficial, and their videos are short and NBA 2K21 MT to the point. However, the fact that they even exist is an embarrassment to 2K. Everything on their website more must be in the actual game and on 2K’s web site. There is so much information out there that’s just handed down from word of mouth or by following the devs on Twitter. Thorough descriptions (including% increases) should be available for every badge also boosts.
The event calendar ought to be online. The myplayer builder should be online. The cutoff elevation for the rapid jumpshots ect all should be online and in NBA 2K21. NBA 2K21 has been out for weeks and I still feel like I learn something new everyday, like being able to change your match-up up on RS. Also, EVERY JUMPSHOT SHOULD HAVE THE exact same GREEN WINDOW AND MAKE PERCENTAGE, so you don’t need to pay some website to locate the best one.
I saw this conversation on Twitter a few weeks ago and it concerned me. Youtubers and their followers were hoping to convince devs (I know LD2K is not a dev) to return got next spots in rec cause they miss things such as having the ability to walk around the gym at mascots. Imagine going from waiting 10 minutes to get a park match to 45 minutes for a rec match. All so a youtuber can produce a video such as”5 Mascots shot over rec and THIS happened!” Instead of utilizing Twitter (or even Reddit) to get feedback for NBA 2K21, why not get the feedback of everyone who plays NBA 2K21 by putting surveys and surveys in the actual game (voluntary of course.)
There are many changes made to NBA 2K21 off the recommendation of those youtubers and their followers when they represent the minority. So much of NBA 2K21 is based on what happens about the 2s court when 10% of players play 2s. I have never heard one rec participant complaining about post scorers being OP for instance. The client is not always correct, therefore not everything ought to be majority vote, but there is no way for 2K to even know what their consumers want.
Note, I buff/nerf interior defense or didn’t state buff/nerf interior scoring. They need to be redone from scratch and are both broken right now. Hands up defense was OP at 2K19 (badly, you shouldn’t be able to make a post scorer or pure slasher miss only by placing hands up), but it’s dreadful and borderline useless in Cheap MT NBA 2K21. Eliminate the palms up cartoons that move you from the way and give no contest. Get rid of garbage badges such as pogo and intimidator stick. Speed up article move animations.
