NBA 2K12 News Post

Hi guys,

I'm the Social Media Coordinator for 2kSports and I know we have been having issues with the "My2K" account verification.

The issues to my knowledge are the following:
  • Registered users receive an e-mail and the verification code clicks in as "INVALID"
  • Registered users are not receiving ANY e-mails for verifications
  • From the "update My2K" menu via console, the "Reset Password" feature isn't sending an e-mail
Please leave your registered "My2k" username in this thread and I will manually re-send an e-mail attempt while our team works on the issues at hand.

Thanks for all your patience, I can promise the team is working on hammering out all the issues. For now, I'm here to help with e-mail verifications.

Thanks guys.


Great news for you users who need verification for your My2K accounts! Now you can verify manually by the following steps:

1. If you go to: https://www.nba2k.com/social/link
2. Enter your My2K account name AND password
3. When you log in, successfully, this is an automatic verification of your account via the log in!

Again its for people who havent received an email, had an INVALID link in their email, or are wanting/needing to verify their "My2K" account.

Additionally, ALL email links will work now, even if they are expired. You just may require a log-in before validating the account.

Hope this will be of MAJOR help to all of you who were having verification issues!

- Chris

SuperMario_2931 (saved in game and verified)

I verified two because the first one didn't save in the game and it made me do it over. Is this a problem? In the game the SuperMario_2931 is the id that is saved and it won't let me change. Will this be a problem, or am I good to go?

I'll just run with the 2nd account because it's verified and won't let me change it in the game if it's ok.

I had to redo it with SuperMario_2931 and completed the registration for that one (I think). I just want to make sure I didn't do something wrong because I completed and verified two registrations under the same email address and only one worked in the game for me (the 2nd one). Please get back to me 2k.

Still have aceguy78 greyed out at the top where you login to your my2k account. Still wont let me delete or try logging in with a different name. ... :-/ I am on the ps3 version

It made me go through the process again and I couldn't retrieve my username for "My2k" and I had to enter a different one and that time it worked. Is it going to be a problem that there are two accounts created to my same email address? This whole thing has me confused.

Got my verification this morning. Probably about 12 hours after I first logged in. Using a yahoo email.

No issues

Echoing the good customer service comments

Please let me know if the "Reset Password" is or is NOT sending an email.

I will forward it to the team if it's not.

Thanks guys.

Hey LD2K this is kinda off topic but i seen someone mentioned about the codes for kings and warriors. Mine worked fine, but the problem i am having is when i first get into the game my code isn't showing and the team isn't showing. After playing for awhile it finally shows up? Same thing with my brothers code. Not sure why its not showing up at first but it takes AWHILE for it to finally show the code is in and then i can use the teams
