The greatest players! The shiniest courts!

My career file crashes/ Fix green release results!!


I have had this game since it came out and fell in love with it. The game did have some bugs at the begging but were later fixed. However after playing a mid career game my game had crashed, and the file I used to play career mode no longer worked. This is not the first time this has happened, the first time my file had completely corrupted because of the update and no longer worked. I had used a lot of money using that certain file and all of that money is now gone along with the file itself. I really love this game but they need to fix this bug that corrupts the data. I really don’t want to start a new file again and just lose all the hard work I put into the game. I have spoken to a 2K18 support representative and they could not give me a solution to the problem. They said that I would have to wait till another update has happened. Updates on this game come in rarely so I would probably have to wait another couple of months to get an update on the game. 2K please release an update for any bugs on the game, I really want to keep on playing but to the looks of it that dream is fading away. So please 2k fix this, overall this game is amazing and I recommend it for everyone. Again the only issue you guys have is the bugs. And also every time I get a perfect green release no matter where I don’t always make it. Please fix that also!! Thank you very much for the help, and the great game!!

Great Game!


First off the game is awesome! But something I would like to see change is in my career when you call for a pass and you’re wide open it shouldn’t be a bad pass call which takes away from the player grade for that game. I understand if I call for one when someone is in the paint making a move towards the basket. But not when a guard has dribbling in the same spot for 3 seconds and I’m wide open at the top of the key. Also when it’s late in the game and the other team presses and you’re open and call for a pass it hits with a bad pass every time that’s really frustrating!!! Also I would like to see an options to be able to call a timeout as a player in some situations before the end of the half I would like to advance it up the court then call a TO and get a in bound play in. Instead of running up the court with 10 seconds left and just throwing up a shot.
Association mode is awesome! But I don’t like that when you get 12 years or more in that rookies start out rated low 50’s some even in the 40’s. I’m not going to spend VC points to upgrade someone who is a 50 overall coming in it’s a waste of money and time. I would like to see a more fair rating coming in. The #1 - 4 pick were 60- high 70’s. But after that your in the 50’s the 5th pick shouldn’t be in the 50’s that’s unreal!!! Just stronger players coming in over the years would be nice! Other than that great game!
