NBA 2K12 News Post


According to Kotaku's Owen Good, NBA 2K12 Legends will not be available online.

None of the 34 teams unlockable in "NBA's Greatest" will be available for online multiplayer modes. There had been some confusion, even hope that they would, as earlier reports suggested that once a team is unlocked from "NBA's Greatest" it is available across all modes of play. 2K Sports just confirmed for me all the modes in which these teams can be used, and online multiplayer isn't one of them.

Inexcusable.

Not wanting them in ranked games I completely get. Not allowing them in private matchups and in private Team-up modes I completely DON'T get.

There goes my main motivating factor for purchasing this...

Major let down. To me, it wouldn't be a problem to see this teams in ranked matches, because they were actual teams that existed not some all-time all-star team, but I can see it being a problem to many, that's why I was hoping for some classic teams lobbies, guess not.
With all the all-time greats, classic teams talk, with the covers and all I was hoping to play with these teams online even if in unranked matches.
That's not a reason to keep me from buying the game, but still...

I must say I really do not understand why 2k won't let us play online with these teams, especially after all The Greatest hype. I really see no reason.

I was quietly hoping there would even be a separate ranked legends lobby ...

Yeah, it would be cool if they were in unranked. Trying to shut down Jordan would've been fun for me.

2K's Achilles heel is always the online portion. You'd think last year it would be a no brainer to allow us to save playbooks online since there were so many to choose from.

Now with all this Greatest teams stuff, it should've been a no brainer to let us use them in unranked games.

I hardly ever play unranked so it's really no sweat off my back, but it would've been cool if we were able to.

2k has a All-star lobby, HOF Lobby, and even had a Virgin Tournament lobby. Next year I'd like to see a Classic teams(only) lobby.

I hope this isn't true. Especially with the lockout this would've been the year to allow classic teams online (for unranked games at the least).

Hopefully this info is wrong or the lockout ends ASAP.

Not a big deal for me. Would have been nice but it is no sweat of my back. Some of you seem to use vocabulary like "inexcusable" and words of that nature. If it is so "inexcusable" don't buy the game because instead of critique some of you are just nagging.
 
# 19 NYdreams @ 09/17/11 06:54 PM
wow.... this news just messed my whole up... i only play online... i was hoping with all the new teams that 2k talks about all the time they would have it online.. i mean how u gonna have some1 on the cover who cant even go online ???
 
# 20 The Bad Man @ 09/17/11 07:00 PM
2k... at least let us have them played in unranked matches please.
