  1. "Various stability and performance issues have been addressed to further improve the overall experience." This is laughable. They add this every time a new patch drops.

    Wow they really not gonna patch gameplay issues
    I just made a thread about the lack of gameplay support.

    Yeah...we might as well chalk this year's effort as a lost cause. They jumped on the next version quick this year. NBA 2K22 better be fire while NBA 2K21 better be (more or less) a casualty of the pandemic.....

    I actually had one in a game I played last weekend. Mitchell Robinson nose injury(playable) one to two weeks. But yea they are extremely rare so I will keep him out until he all healed.

    When has anyone ever called him Daniel Green? I think that's the point he was making lol. He's always been known as Danny Green

    I swear I saw two happen in my Pelicans MyNBA. This was all before the current patch. Possible I missed something since I always heard they weren't possible in-game. It was game one of the first round of the playoffs, so I had just spent tons of time considering my lineups, so I'm sure I would have noticed an injury at that point.
    There was no "event" that caused the injury as far as I could tell or at least no cut to it or commentary. All of a sudden, Zion had the injury icon next to his name on the court. He had seemingly developed shoulder tendonitis in the middle of a game. At this point I looked at the player health for both teams, and Zion was the only hurt player for both teams. Later in the series, I noticed a player on the other team with the injury icon. Now I played every game up to that point in the series so it must have happened in game.

    Do I have to restart mynba to get the changes again?

    You could just import/export them in from create-a-roster mode. You only have to do it for guys who had generic face before. And import appearance only so your attributes aren't affected.
    This is honestly pathetic not to have any gameplay improvements. This game is the most imbalanced AAA game on the market. you have ratings that should be very important but literally do almost nothing like interior defense, ball control that does not speed up your dribble and only increases ball security (why not call it ball security), speed with ball of 99 rated guard running slower than a power forward with a speed with ball in the low 80s, shooting having no increase in make percentage after 92, power forwards getting 80 badge points to a pg's 50 while being able to do everything a pg can do but better and also being able to have great defense and rebounding (talk about throwing away money making a pg build), rec center being complete crap with garbage AI that you can literally shoot right in there face and green every time, being matched against a team of all 96's and up while playing with 2 AI's and a couple of casuals, missing easy layups and floaters while at the same time being able to dunk on any one with greater ease than any player in nba history, and the list could keep going on an on. And that is just my career/park/rec. Then you have all the issues with AI defense and a host of other issues with play now modes. I have given up on this game and hope others will eventually as well. I am sick of feeding these guys money while they keep their pay to win schemes and sleazy marketing off Kobe's death while doing absolutely him no justice in the game. If enough people stop playing it might wake them up, but in any case I am through.

    Just look at the last 10-15 years of history with this game.
    Removing features, purposely not fixing features just so they can re-add or fix them next year and make a video about it to sell the new game.
    It's almost criminal the way this franchise has been managed.

    No man! But it’s really shame to see how 2k came up to be like EA.
    In 2011 they were the opposite of EA, making us the greatest basketball game ever made.
    Well... look at them now 10 years after ):

    At the risk of sounding cynical...I can see Beluba's 2K22 next gen video already. "Our engineers have had more time with the power of next gen consoles and come up with our "reactive AI defense" feature, that allows the CPU to defend basic pick and rolls, errrr, I mean defend complicated, real, NBA play books. This is something that was not possible without the power of the next gen machines and I can't wait until players get the chance to play 2K22".

    Still ZERO broadcast elements in MyCareer at the NBA level.* Sucks!

    This definitely sucks but I really don’t expect it happening this year.

    This!! This is ALSO why we never really saw 5v5 gameplay. Even in I believe it was the Lebron pull up shot video....there is a clip of AD totally ignoring the PNR player. My thinking is that if they had shown actually gameplay ahead of time, that video would be dissected with a fine tooth comb...and we would've seen these flaws from the jump.

    It's not even cynical, it's literally what has happened every year, for years now.
