NBA 2K17: Snoop Dogg, Launch Time And After Dark Mode

11301

On November 26, a new feature of NBA 2K17 was added. For the new After Dark mode, in one-on-one up to three-on-three pick-up games, it will allow players to take MyPlayer to virtual courts against other players. If you want to join any of the games, for the MyPlayer, they needs to wait for other players to play with.

2K Sports released a new trailer for the NBA 2K17 MyPark: After Dark mode which transforms the normal MyPark mode into a virtual party with special effects, DJ, and a happy crowd. Famous rapper Snoop Dogg also performed a live concert under the alias Snoopdelic to launch the new game mode.

Snoop Dogg was quoted saying: “As the world’s greatest NBA 2K17 player, it’s only right that I get to Snoopify the Park After Dark. I’m going to set off the park with a SNOOPADELIC set that’s going to have house parties around the globe JUMPING OFF.”

The NBA 2K17 MyPark: After Dark mode features a dunk contest and a three-point shooting competition apart from the Mountain Dew 3x Tournament that allows players to win a cash prize. The same tournament was featured in the Pro Am series during the NBA 2K16.

The MyPark feature has been the most entertaining for players for many years. There is now a new automated system which has leveled the field for amateurs but increased the waiting time to find matches. Nevertheless, it ensures that similarly skilled players will be paired.

In fact, there is no doubt that it’s a wildly festive experience, at the same time, it would be presumably stimulate some fans who don’t normally play NBA 2K17 MyPark. Nonetheless, usually, I’m not a MyPark player. After dark just to witness this for myself, I will stop to witness it.

NBA 2K17 Update: Regarding Air Jordan XXX1 Space Jam

11303-fw

When will start for Space Jam season? on this weekend, it begins release of both an Air Jordan XXX1 that’s on basic of the iconic Air Jordan 11 of the same name as well as a recently renamed Air Jordan 9 that was also featured in the movie. In this week’s edition of NBA 2K17 Kicks, let us guess what we featured. which contains feature Jordan Brand athletes Russell Westbrook as well as Kawhi Leonard? 11303-fw

The Air Jordan XXX1 Space Jam will probably make it into the game eventually as an update, but we decided to just beat them to the punch for a moment and create our own version. As you can see the screenshots of the user-created XXX1 and the pre-scanned Air Jordan 9 Space Jam, there’s a big difference between a shoe that you make from scratch and one that was tinkered with by the game’s designers and artists.

Speaking of Space Jam, wouldn’t it be more fun to feature Russ in the a hypothetical sequel instead of LeBron James? I understand that ‘Bron is a bigger name and it makes sense that he would be pegged to star in a sequel or remake of the original, but we’re talking about the potential for comedy here with Russ.

if it can be a new story with an ensemble cast featuring Jordan Brand’s best? why not to do this? Who not care to see a game featuring Russ, Chris Paul, Kawhi, Blake Griffin as well as Carmelo Anthony taking on The Monstars. Hell, as well all know, it seems to that Jordan Brand already has something like that in the can – a short film/commercial – and which is a special occasion.

NBA 2K17: MyTeam Glitches After The New Patch

nba 2k17

This glitch report mainly focus on PS4 console, some gamers post their giltches after patch 1.06, and these glitches happen more in MyTeam mode.

nba 2k17

Widely Fast Breaks Glitch

Glitch Description: Players often run into the referees without any precedence during fast breaks, typically killing the momentum.

An example of this would be, in MyTeam Historic Domination against the Magic, the gamer was running the fast break. Curry had the ball and dished it to Shawn Marion, and right as he clicked the button, Shawn Marion suddenly locked onto the ref, and was bending over on the sidelines. The pass went through however, even though Shawn was already out-of-bounds, causing a turnover.

This bug happen in lots of game mode: MyLeague, MyGM, MyCareer, MyTeam, Play Now, Play Now Online.

MyTeam Home Screen Glitch

Glitch Description: The MyTeam Home Screen is poorly optimized, and often makes the PS4 heat up and become very loud after sitting on it for only several minutes.

No other game does this yet, and other modes in NBA2K17 do not cause this either (i.e. MyLeague Home Screen). This has been a problem since launch, and many PS4 users have been experiencing it. Even the PS4 is relatively new (5 months) as well, and no other game mode or video game does this.

Just simply turn your PS4 on, immediately boot up 2K, launch the MyTeam mode, and just sit on the home screen for ~5-10 minutes. Your PS4 will become somewhat noisy and will feel incredibly hot to the touch, as if you’ve been running it for hours (when in reality it has only been several minutes).

This bug only happen in MyTeam Home Screen and is easily repeatable.

MyTeamOnline Peja Glitch

Glitch Description: Players are able to use different card versions of the same player in MyTeamOnline (i.e. Ruby & Sapphire Peja Stojakovic on the same team’s lineup).

Not sure if this is a Peja exclusive thing since he’s a SG/SF. Haven’t seen any other cards with this yet, but other gamers have seen the Peja glitch occur twice.

And this bug always happen in MyTeamOnline.

Have you met these problems? Don’t worry, these giltches would be fixed soon since these quality comments have been sent to the 2K Team.

NBA 2K17: How To Choose Your 2K Team During New Season

055772

Now the 2016-17 NBA season has started, you can keep up to date and play out the season ‘live’ by playing each of the games that day in a season mode (previously available on the ‘Play Now’ option).

The number one draft pick, “our” Ben Simmons, suffered a foot injury that’ll keep him off the court for three months (if not the entire year).

Steph Curry, last season’s MVP, was taken down a peg by the drafting of Kevin Durant to the Golden State Warriors. (Curry, despite his pivotal role in helping the Warriors break the record for most wins in a season, now holds the fourth highest salary on the Warriors. Stings a bit.)

And LeBron James, who delivered the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA championship over the favoured Warriors, became the league’s highest paid player, after signing a three-year contract for $US100m. (Tragically, this puts Space Jam 2 even further away.)

055772

With the new season comes newer narratives to obsess over. Will the Warriors work as a collective, now that they’ve brought their major, non-Cleveland-based rival on board? Can they break – or equal – their past season’s record of 73 victories? Will they finally claim the championship many thought they deserved earlier this year? (And geez, these are only the uncertainties we have for Golden State.)

Trouble is, following along with an entire sporting season can be a slog. Eighty-two games a season, per team, not including the playoffs, amounts to one hell of a time-suck for the casual baller. Many will instead be creating their own narratives in NBA 2K17, the second-most pure form of basketball absorption. This writer will certainly be doing so.

The question is, which team is tops in the latest iteration of the video game?

Anyone looking to simply start playing – and skip the ‘My Career’ origin story – is immediately offered a choice between the Warriors and the Cavaliers. It’s a fair assumption. But what if you don’t want to simply go with the crowd? What if you’re seeking an idiosyncratic team to call your own? Maybe you just don’t want to be called a bandwagon-jumper by picking Steph or LeBron’s teams. Or maybe you want some additional justification to do so.

Whatever your motives, here are the superficial reasons for selecting your 2K team.

10. Golden State Warriors

nba-golden-state-warriors-stephen-curry-nba-2k.vadapt

The latest updates to the 2K series are minimal, besides the inclusion of 2016’s draftees and a new shooting style that is slightly more temperamental – unless you’re Steph Curry, who barely ever misses. Woe betide anyone who dares to play against the Warriors – your friends included. Remember: Nothing’s more frustrating than an opponent who only goes for three-pointers (and sinks them with impunity). Combine that with Draymond Green’s wandering leg and the generally frustrating presence of Durant and you’ll quickly become despised should you ever select the Warriors. Consider the wreckage to your personal life.

9. New York Knicks

Late last year, I was lucky enough to see the NY Knicks play the Chicago Bulls at Madison Square Garden. Seeing them in 2015 was like watching Al Pacino share the screen with Robert De Niro in Righteous Kill. Right icons, wrong time. Still, the Knicks have the towering, essential Carmelo Anthony and up-and-coming legend-in-the-making Kristaps Porzingis. They also have Derrick Rose, which is hugely problematic. Hence: they are nine.

8. Philadelphia 76ers

 ben simmons

Ben Simmons may be benched for the foreseeable future, yet he’s totally playable right now in the world of 2K. Here, this bottom-ranked team’s fabled ‘process’ is paying off just fine, with their young and hungry roster eager to climb to the top of the Eastern Conference. Playing as the 76ers – and winning – is basically as close as you’ll get to the fantasy realms of RPGs. Anything can happen.

7. Miami Heat

chris bosh

The legendary Chris Bosh’s career is basically done – except in 2K. Give him one more crack at a ring.

6. Brooklyn Nets

LOL. JK. Justin Lin’s hair can’t make this a worthwhile choice. That’d be Linsanity indeed.

6 (For Real). Oklahoma City Thunder

This is where you take your vengeance against Durant and the Warriors. Russell Westbrook may not be able to pull it off in real life. Avenge him.

5. Chicago Bulls (’92-’93 Championship Team)

The domination of the Warriors is a deterrent in 2K17… however, if you really want to win without putting in much effort at all, it’s hard to go past peak Bulls. Unlike the field goal-loving Warriors, you can dunk up a storm with Michael Jordan himself. They may be meaner than Steph and company, but their brand of basketball is more fun to play (and watch).

4. Chicago Bulls (’97-’98 Championship Team)

Same as above, except this team has Luc Longley and Dennis Rodman (and is arguably even better). Before the Warriors came along, these players notched the record for most wins in an NBA season (in ’95-’96). If you’re so inclined, you can pull Steve Kerr off the bench and get him to chasten the current-day Warriors (who he now coaches). So that’s fun.

3. Minnesota Timberwolves

Karl-Anthony Towns

The Ringer called the ‘Minnesota Timberpuppies’ the “next hipster team”; meaning, this is the gang to watch if you’re looking to get in on the ground floor of potential champions. They’ve got the awesomely named Andrew Wiggins on their roster, along with previous Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns and future Rookie of the Year Kris Dunn. Start practicing.

2. Australia’s ’16 Team

What, you’re not going to give the Boomers a run? Any other pick would be un-Australian.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers

 LeBron James

Going with the trophy-holders may seem like the obvious choice, but how can you deny LeBron? If you need to justify it to yourself, consider this: Who knows how long we’ll be able to play as the towering legend? (This is his 14th season.) There’s nothing more fun in NBA 2K17 than running rings around cowering defenders as King James. That’s not even accounting for his teammates Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert (of “Fade”!). Sure, Kevin Love handles a bit sluggishly; nonetheless, this is the team. LeBron does the laundry too.

Those are just some of the suggestions we have. Which team will you select? Feel free to play around to find the ones that suit you best. For more NBA 2K17 tips and tricks, keep it right here on U4NBA.
