  1. It actually looks like everything is in one place so no more having to walk around a whole block to get to where young want to go. I love it. Love the open concept, the vibrant colors, mini games, etc. I feel like it's going to make the neighborhood actually feel more alive and fun and actually last a whole year.
    Watched the trailer again....

    • Like the variety in park appearance
    • Dodgeball could be fun.
    • Trampoline basketball could be fun.
    • Day/Night schedules?
    • Con...we're walking again.
    • Con...the "gym" is back which means we'll need it for turbo.
    • Con...Lemonade stand is back which grinding badges in the practice gym again.
    yea am just in here to read the comments from the ppl who actually plays this mode and try and understand how, what, and why they gravitate towards it.....
    Noticed that the "north" part of the park kept changing....not sure what's that's going to be about. Dynamic environment based on the number of people on server to limit waiting time for a game, perhaps?
    It's so bizarre to see all this stuff in a basketball sim. Dudes running around with all different types of hair colors dancing, skateboarding, playing doge ball, going to casinos and what not.
    How, I mean how exactly are they going to incorporate the serious narrative they've depicted in the story trailer to being in the neighborhood after every game and plot advancement. Tonally the neighborhood fit the story of 2k18 MyCareer because it was all over the top and lame but here the tone will clash hard.
    I'm a franchise guy who dips his feet in MyCareer so I'm not exactly the target audience but this looks wild and not in a good way.

    Now I'm picturing all of the cut-scenes from the dumb spike lee story, except your dude is in a mascot costume the whole time :lol:
    I don’t know how to feel about all of what I just watched lol. Guess I’ll just have to wait until the game comes out.
    Not too happy about mascots being back lol.

    I thought I saw slamball and football.
    Slamball would be dope if they did that for playgounds2

    but wouldnt it be a bit redundant if they already have it their 2k game bro?
    hey 23 what they could do for playgrounds 2 is get the content creators in there, the rappers from their soundtrack( or any popular rappers) and some WNBA players ....that would be dope.... u know to mix it up being the have two licensed NBA title to release

    Maybe The Neighborhood won't be implemented into the story mode? That would mean they separated the My Career and My Park modes.
    I wanted to talk about how people in here are always whining boy Park related things, but then I remembered this really isn’t the fanbase 2K is marketing towards.
    This place actually has people that like Broadcast cameras, you’d get roasted for playing on that camera online

    I see 2K is gauging how well a football game would go over with that little teaser at the end.
    They ain't slick :lol:

    i wont lie i got wet i wouldn't play as much basketball if they released a football game
    They could just port a nfl2k5 streetball mode type game just to plant the seed
    As a mygm guy I only a barely used the neighborhood last year but this looks really fun and much improved. A guy a grew up with lead slamball in blocks as the rim protector so maybe I’m just biased bc that. I hope it’s as fun as it looks will def have to try it out more this time around

    I don't really know anything about it to be honest.. i was just being nostalgic about slamball lol.
    I don't play these fantasy modes anyway so it doesn't affect me at all in that sense.
    I think they just clapped back at the "we aint playin no more we all goin to fortnite" crowd with some of the silly stuff you saw like the naruto run and some of the dances, etc...
    Anyway, haven't seen any of the children mention fortnite today. :lol:
    Dodgeball looks entertaining, but did anybody here ever go play the mini games in 2k18's neighborhood?
    cause after 1 or 2 play through I feel like people will just go where they want to quickly

    Well I think part of it was that they were hidden in alleyways. The design of the neighborhood last year was absolutely atrocious IMO. I think it looks much better this year having everything pretty much in one open place.

    I did during a week of release. I would play the trivia game sometimes when I got desperate for VC.

    I did trivia when waiting for friends that said "I'll be right there" which translates to half an hour from now
    these games could fit that category

    This looks way too gimmicky for me, but I will stick to MyCareer, PNO and MyLeague anyways.

    It's not that bad...once you get past all the foolery there's actually some fun once you get a game going with some friends. Don't run with randoms and make sure you turn off the opponents that has mics. Oh make sure you turn off your inbox as well so you won't get any messages of how much you sucked.
    My brother forgot to turn off his messages once and hooo boy lol
    Damn. I'm officially too old to have any interest whatsoever in what I'm seeing in any of these trailers or gameplay vids. Even the regular game looks soulless and on rails with zero flow or creativity. Story mode looks underwhelming and forced. Neighborhood looks like Fortnite designed Rucker Park. Guess this means it's time for a new generation to fall in love with the franchise.
    Enjoy fellas. It's been a great 20 years and thousands of entertaining hours. But it's definitely time for something new. I'll be back when VR takes over in a couple decades. Then we'll see who really knows the Game. 
    I guess we know what they've been spending a majority of the dev time on for the last 8-10 months now.
    Looks fun. Just wish I had any interest in it whatsoever.

    I really enjoyed going to the arcade and playing 3 on 3 games against someone else on the PS4s that are in the arcade, and I'd do the trivia when I was waiting for friends to get on.
    serious question OPERATION SPORTS ......
    would you guys mind if the MYPARK was relocated into their newly aquired PLAYGROUNDS IP? i mean the name kinda facilitates the neigjborhood already as a playground based on that trailer
    it seems this my park thing has enough fans to stand on its own...and the neighborhood seems to be growing

    I think proximity played a part in people not playing it, but even then, after a few weeks, those things will more than likely die. Most people just want a competent Park/Pro-Am.
    I think the novelty of MyPark for match making has run out for me. Not saying they should get rid of it, but why not just give an option to start a park game from a menu? Running around for 30 minutes to an hour trying to get a game started gets old quick.
    Playing Live and just having a street game populate itself in 10 seconds makes me wish I could do that in 2k again.

    Wait wait wait wait wait......lmao they really brought back 2K16 Walk-On, and called it the Jordan Rec Center?!

    In 2k16 it was definitely called the Jordan Rec Center, not walk on.

    Other than the slamball type mode I don't see the other stuff having longevity
    Players gonna just be running straight to the park/stage/rec after a month.
    Day/night transitions and the courts having a little variety is something i'm happy about so I won't be looking at the same thing all year.

    Lol you know what I mean. People have wanted the 2K15 Rec back, not the 2K16 knock-off version.
    Question: after seeing all the Fortnite dances and whatnot.... Is Dodgeball the 2k19 Battle Royale mode? Seriously.
    In a basketball game. Two teams, play to a final winner, hit people around a map (neighborhood). It's totally 2k Battle Royale!
    Sent from my Pixel C using Tapatalk
    So they add all this and couldn’t real NBA players faces and hairstyles like Robert Covington and others for years...nice to see where the real money grabbing focus is.
    I’ve said it before but 2K is becoming more and more like fortnite, and catering to that kind of demographic.
    I'm not an online player in the least but I can see myself wasting some time with this. It looks like it covers everything from hardcore serious "sim" ballers (Jordan Rec) to just plain old goofiness.
    Damn, this is going to keep me entertained all year.
    I like the variety in courts and how open the layout is. All of the additional activities should be fun to mess around in. I can’t wait for this game.
    Imagine if they'd spent this much attention on myleague. Maybe advertise LeBron, Steph bobble head night before a game or show the players getting off the bus before the game like they used to back when. Have the halftime replay show clips from other games that night. A big dunk or a game winner. Have the crowd get really amped when LeBron comes back to Cleveland in a Lakers jersey. Something. Oh well, awesome news nonetheless for park dudes.

    So is Jordan Rec the same as pro am? I’m confused and I didn’t play 2k15
    Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No, it's more like Walk Ons in 2K18. If I remember it right, it was essentially just 5 on 5 Park games, so you had to go to the Rec Center and sit there waiting 30 minutes for a game to end so that you could get on the court basically. I imagine they must have improved on this for whatever this new reincarnation of the mode is, but I personally never understood why people liked it any more than they did the Walk On mode last year.
    How I see it is this portion of the game "The Neighborhood" is geared towards the consumers that are on the brink of or already have pre-ordered the $100 Anniversary Edition. They said the real official gameplay trailer is coming next week.

    Huh. Totally missed that
    I'll just wait for words. Still don't have anything really concrete yet Because I could have sworn someone had mentioned tiered parks
    I can't for the life of me understand the affinity for the Jordan Rec Center. It was a hot mess before. Lagged for months, then if you wanted to walk on by yourself or with just a friend or two you might wait an hour to play. Totally stupid to want that over jumping into a walk on pro-am game imo.

    I tried JRC once and when I finally got in a game after 45 minutes (literally showered and ate). I come back and got lagged out. Never touched it again.
    I gotta be honest... this looked pretty corny to me overall. Comes off as more of a circus than a neighborhood.
    I’m sure it’ll probably appeal to a lot of people, which is fine, but I’m seriously concerned about the fluff (emotes/dodgeball/rappers), obnoxious advertising, the potential for big lag issues with how busy the neighborhood is, and the VC caveat behind a lot of the stuff we’ve seen.
    I'm not really a mypark type of guy, but I could see myself wasting some time there. Crew has me intrigued as well as the football. Could 2K football be making a comeback?! First golf now this!! Say what you want about 2K, but they do have something for every type of gamer!!
    Is 31 the new 51 because I feel old watching this trailer lol but its plain to see this is where 2ks bread and butter is, congrats for the guys that enjoy this mode.
    It's actually amazing to me how crazy 2k has gotten over the last few years. I know it's still technically a "sim" but it's funny how I actually think Live is trying to replicate what I'm looking for more so than what 2k is doing currently if that makes sense.
    I never thought I'd have said that even 3 years ago lol.
    It took 69 comments before someone mentioned CREW! the mode people cried about for 5-6 years when 2K took the mode out, they reintroduce it and, NOTHING? I'm extremely disappointed in this crowd, extremely disappointed.

    1. So they scanned Quavo, Travis Scott, and Lil Yachty for park...I wish they'd put them as front row crowd members like that one year and add them to a celebrity all star game for ASW.
    2. Damn all I wanted a few years ago was the D-League back and the Crib to be integrated back in.

    I’m only 21 and while all the extra non basketball things don’t make me super hype, it’s not something I’m against. My favorite mycareer up to this point is still 2K11 cause of the detail to the NBA side of it and this year seems to be the closest to that in a long while. Now when it comes to this carnival of a neighborhood lol, it can be fun especially that slam ball stuff.
    With all the sim stuff they’ve added to the rest of the game, including mycareer, I can live with this. The VC prices and how much you’ll need to buy will probably be high as hell though lol.

    That's the biggest issue though no? Lol. Even if I wanted to do MyCareer, the VC grind and heavy handed elements kills it for me. I'm fine with the mini games and stuff, it's just how it's presented is what's throwing me off I guess. This is where I think they'd benefit if they separated the two.
    All in all, I think it's just so far from what we thought this mode was supposed to be/going to become it's offputting to the "old timers." Like I said before though, maybe it's just not for me anymore so I still have MyLeague for my player lock fix.

    The question is does slamball give actual good amounts of VC?
    I could see a good slamball system taking ALOT of the little kids away from the actual park and freeing it up for adults
    Actually screw that, if slamball was really jumping i could see my butt on the court with all the little screamers lol
    Pure slasher heaven?
    And actually dodgeball was my fave game in gym class. If that’s fun and gives good VC i could see some time spent in that
    The key for all the carnival stuff is basically does it give good VC? If it doesn’t no one will play it past week 2

    These are things you do when you're base product, in this case basketball gameplay, is solid.
    Its a no from me
    Meh. I didn’t like the neighbourhood last year and this looks more of the same. As others have said, it looks like an annoying VC circus. I hope that the folks looking forward to it actually enjoy it though.
    This trailer didn’t swing me to pre-ordering. I’ve bought every 2K since 10 but last year really soured me. It’s Live 19 for me this year. I may also decide to pick up 2K if I really like the Prelude.

    Anyways, most of the guys that was heavy into Crew Mode back then, was satisfied with ProAm which basically is Crew with some minor changes. So that’s probably why nobody cared much about this.

    Also the trailer was ok. I'm getting old and i like more the MLB-The Show MyCareer (RTTS) mode because it's native and feel's credible.
    The last editions of NBA2K i switched from MC to MYGM with player lock. i love it! (EDIT:But NBA2K18 MYGM was bad!)

    It will be terrible if there are going to be some gameplay related things that are off and need fixing and instead they spent time on so much unnecessary stuff.
    Pretty sure Mike, Czar, Zach, Scott OG and the other gameplay guys aren't hands on with these features, it's more like the animators and engineers.

    Read the article i just posted

    The Jordan Rec Center is essentially the replacement to ProAm walk-on.

    Thanks for the info.
    So basically instead of classic walk-on (2-3 mins to connect to a game, and play) now I have to get in line and wait on "got next" spot (up to 20 mins just to play).
    That's bad news.

    Some of y’all need to lighten up. It’s a game a lot of us will keep in our system for the whole year
    It’s ok if they have mini games
    How some of y’all could get mad st this trailer I’ll never know
    Take your bum butt to NBA Live and have fun playing with one of the only 75 people that will be playing it online by the time next March rolls around
    This is what the community asked for and they listened
    If your complaining but your still gonna play 2k over live then sthu

    Now that you mentioned this...so this is where the bulk of the art team went to work on. They need a dedicated art team just for the NBA and have another team work on the neighborhood. It gets annoying if players have yet to be updated for the last couple of years.

    I saw a football in this basketball trailer.
    ESPN NFL 2K20 confirmed? :bandito:

    2K might be about to go after that street football crowd. MyPark Football 2K20. Lol. In all seriousness, it would be kind of cool to be able to play a little 7 on 7 with your avatars. I think though itll probably be more of a prop type of thing. Still cool to see.

    Nah, Jordan Rec is matchmaking.
    As far as this trailer,
    I could see myself anywhere from not stepping a foot in The Neighborhood to getting lost in it a couple weeks. 2K fortunately has enough options to be able to do that...interested to see what Crews is though.
    Live and let live I say...its a video game...the modes we opt to play arent that serious...
    Sent from my SM-G955U using Operation Sports mobile app
    The Crews concept returns to NBA 2K this year, but it’s not the same Crew we remember from NBA 2K11, or the less-than-impressive incarnation we saw in NBA 2K15. This version has an “s” on the end and it is all about 3-on-3 action.
    You and two friends can team up in tournaments, single games and other events against other human users and even the A.I. in challenges that will award all of you VC, while assisting in the badge grind. The A.I. won’t be generic players, or even just NBA players.
    YouTubers and celebrities who have been scanned for the game will be in and will provide opposition for you and your teammates. In the trailer, you may have caught a glimpse of Chris Smoove and Shakedown 2012. Both guys are longtime 2K YouTubers and influencers. Their renders looked great in the trailer, as did Travis Scott, Quavo of the Migos and more.
    Just like Pro-Am, users will be able to customize uniforms for their teams just as they can in Pro-Am. Only in Crews, the uniforms isn’t restricted to a jersey and shorts. Crews unis can be sweatshirts, sweatpants, sleeveless t-shirts and more. You can even import images and textures to make looks unique.
    Along with the customization and head-to-head play, Crews also has a segment that has a similar feel to MyTeam Domination. You and your teammates will take on the three best players from all NBA teams with a chance to win major rewards and VC. You’ll also play against All-Time Big Threes from each organization as well for even bigger rewards.
    Crews will have periodic challenges such as Protect This House, which challenges your squad to put together a streak of wins. There is also Top Crew, which is one of a variety of tournaments. It’s easy to see how this could grow into its on eSport, or at least another event on the 2K competitive gaming landscape.
    I have to admit, I was impressed with this feature, which usually isn’t the type of thing I’d like. While that mode seems a little like PARK, it isn’t.

    If I wanted amusing little mini games and such, I would play Mario Party.
    So many people are complaining about the JRC not realizing its MATCHMAKING. It's the JRC from 2k16 not 2k15. They are 2 totally different things. Majority of the Park heads on Twitter wanted the 2k15 version back. Sit on the got next and wait for the game, wear street clothes etc.
    You won't have to wait 20 mins for games. It's matchmaking just being played in the JRC lol.

    “You were not going to get actual basketball stuff”
    This statement is wrong on so many levels in terms of the direction 2K is heading with their “basketball” game
    Except you can have your core basketball mode and do other stuff on the side. It’s silly and limiting to just market to the hardcore hoops fans.
    I don’t care about dodgeball but i also don’t care that they added little extra stuff to the game. Doesn’t keep me from enjoying my game.
    Next year they'll probably have tackle football over in the neighborhoods field somewhere with the old NFL 2k controls intact.
    Then baseball, soccer, volleyball, Track, etc as more installments come out with the park getting bigger on PS5/Xbox Two.
    Maybe even some paintball gun action. Gotta take advantage of that first-person shooter fan base right 2k?

    The resources allocated to the extra modes take away what they should fix in the core basketball game. There has been art problems and other issues that have not been addressed for years still yet they’ve been expanding on these extra features and modes...

    Resources they wouldn’t have without these extra modes to begin with. They’ve explained this before. If they took out the park tomorrow they’d fire a dozen people along with it. This idea that 2K would be a better game if all they did was program basketball is simply not true.
    They did not take anything away from the core gameplay by adding trampolines or dodgeball. It’s just easy to blame the low hanging fruit when something goes wrong.

    If there's one thing I learned from the movie industry, it's that making money often takes precedence over making a good product. I hope it doesn't become that way with this series.

    Its the way now. My wife and I went to pick my nephew up from the airport when he came down to visit for the summer, the first thing him and my son did was some weird dance. We looked at each other like WTF are they doing. Well, it was the Orange Justice dance from Fortnight. Neither my son or nephew care for basketball.

    This is 2ks response to the Fortnite/2k gamers asking for more content throughout the year to play. Hopefully this keeps the little ones occupied and the rest of us don't have to worry about them ruining the skills gap to appeal to the arcadey 2kers

    This is sad man. 2K should be focusing on how to make matchmaking better instead they’re just attracting even more non basketball competition to flood the neighborhood. The most frustrating thing abt the park this year is playing with absolute bone heads that don’t know how to play team basketball. They need a way to have sessions with competitive players and separate sessions with people more interested in doing the latest dance moves. If more info doesn’t come out then I’m not buying 2K for the first time in 10 years. 
    I don't know... I've bought 2k for over a decade - this one looks dumb and especially VC heavy. At what point will the community push back on VC? 2k basketball seems to be the only game series immune from the recent backlash against loot crates and other microtransactions.

    The difference this year is that 2K Sports is SPECIFICALLY targeting major complainants from the community. Mike and Zach's tweet read as one big "We did to address " blog. Besides things related to art, I can't think of anything that they didn't honestly make an attempt to address.

    I have a hard time buying this when I go back and read the MyLeague blog. 2K still puts more effort into it's sim modes than any other sports game out there IMO.
    I don't get the intense backlash against VC. I didn't like how simple features in 2k18 required an inordinate amount of VC, like cutting your hair to even see what your hair looked like, and how you get a worthless amount of VC for things like Park games, where you can wait 30 minutes for a 15 minute game only to get 200 vc and a minimal progress in badges and attribute unlocks.
    but at least now there are many ways to earn VC. Treat it as the Skill Points in earlier 2ks, except you can buy them now instead. I don't feel pressure to splurge on VC because I rather enjoy working my way up from a scrub to a great player. At the end of the day whoever wants to spend another 50 dollars on the game to get better quick, more power to you. I'd never do it personally though because I'm already paying 100 dollars on the damn preorder bonus lol.

    This is like MC/Neighborhood guys coming on a franchise mode video topic talking about "this is where all the resources went??" "Only old sim heads care about this...it's not the wave with young core street gamers..2k is trash...they should be adding mascots instead of adding team playbooks"

    Once the MyLeague and Create-A-Player news came out, I stated that NBA2K19 will be the best NBA2K of all-time. And looking at the MyCareer portion, I believe this will be the best 2K by far! This game has so many different things to do, for so many different kinds of people. It seems like this year's focus was creating replay-ability and longevity. I skipped 2K18, but honestly see myself playing 2K19 for more than 1 year.

    The similariry is every year they say they fix something and its still people complaining.
    Remember when they cut up cheese in reference to zig zag?
    Remember when Mike Wang was talking about how hes keeping a hawk eye on shooting and he'll make tweaks throuout the year?
    Footplanting to combat sliding, then the footplanting all but disappeared weeks into the game?
    What year was it that they were talking about defence? Was it 2k17 when the defenders moved with the speed and accuracy of a prime Gretzky on Ice? Or 2k18 where anyone could be prime D Rose or LeBron with the blow by?
    I remember hearing of differences in speed but I cant think of a single game where a slow big couldn't keep up with or chase down a fast guard every now and then.
    I've seen opinions on both sides here, some respectful and some just hand waving away any viewpoints that aren't theirs.
    Honestly, I don't think even the most hardcore "sim head" is expecting the most faithful recreation of the sport ever produced, just as even the most casual player would not expect only neat and fun activities with only a smattering of basketball.
    At this point we haven't even seen the Prelude, much less the final product.Let's be cool about it, and try to have an open mind.

    Footplanting has already been explained. People whine and complain excessively when certain things are there, so they are removed...but in this case the movement and smoothness for control was the goal and they achieved that.
    That footplanting talk needs to stop man.

    The similariry is every year they say they fix something and its still people complaining.
    Remember when they cut up cheese in reference to zig zag?
    Remember when Mike Wang was talking about how hes keeping a hawk eye on shooting and he'll make tweaks throuout the year?
    Footplanting to combat sliding, then the footplanting all but disappeared weeks into the game?
    What year was it that they were talking about defence? Was it 2k17 when the defenders moved with the speed and accuracy of a prime Gretzky on Ice? Or 2k18 where anyone could be prime D Rose or LeBron with the blow by?

    Then you haven't been reading the blogs or thread with all the tweets. They definitely addressed a lot of things and added features/changes while trying to make game balance the most important thing. 2K Sports addressing flash pausing in PNO was a huge surprise.
    OBVIOUSLY, we won't know results of their effort until it released and cheesers will be cheesers. On paper, 2K19 is on pace to overtake 2K11 as arguably the most "beloved" entry when it comes to head to head competition.
    2K being very ambitious with these new features. As someone stated in a post above me, a lot of these things aren't my cup of tea (dodge ball, slam ball) but I totally get it from a marketing perspective. Damn I feel old.
    IMO, a lot of these features look mad corny to me - I personally just want to hop on and play as much 3v3 or Pro-Am.
    In regards to the JRC - I liked it in terms of being able to get together with other randoms and form a squad yourselves. Hopefully it works the same this year.

    What part of that article was supposed to clear something up?
    2k sounds nice from these types of articles every year. Studios get fluff every day B.
    Even if it was a different team that worked on those parts, that could have been extra hands on a fundamental part of the game like fastbreaks

    Sounds nice but that is not how it works. Defense and offense have the exact same amount of devs and engineers they always had. There is only so many issues you can properly address in a cycle and not every offered solution works as you intend. But trust you don't want park engineers in there configuring transition defense or anything else.
    People have things they specialize in. It takes far less time for a specialist to do something than it would 5 novices. Adding more people to certain tasks would actually slow you down. I understand not liking the direction or the what you feel is the focus though.

    with all due respect man, why is it that transition defense never gets improved year after year? at least nothing that i've noticed. it's always just the first guy back camping in the paint with no awareness of the incoming offense whatsoever. is it a game engine limit that doesn't allow anymore improvement?
    Good grief this board. People can't enjoy anything.
    As a completely offline player only, this Neighborhood looks like a damn blast. If anyone ever thought "hey what if we could do this with our MyPlayer..." those Park devs killed it.
    At the absolute very least, what harm is it causing anyone? Lord 2Kers are the most spoiled bunch.
    I dont get what the negativity is about. There is literally everything in this mode, and sure VC helps you win, but it isnt pay to win necessarily. You can still do everything without paying for VC.
    And most importantly, if you dont like it you dont have to play it.
    So, are the park and neighborhood guys supposed to bitch and moan because 2K put a lot of resources into MyLeauge this year?
    I mean holy hell, I could see if 2K completely neglected the offline and NBA portion of the game like Live seems to be doing this year, but it looks like we literally have the best of both worlds with 2K.
    Without all the funds this game makes from the online portion of its fans, do you guys really think we would have such a deep offline experience that keeps getting built on year after year?
    I’m happy as hell that everyone gets the game they want. Online guys stay on their end, I’ll stay in myleauge and both groups are happy.

    What about the PNO folks? We're somebody too :smile:.
