Selling a little advertisement space — even overdone advertisement space — isn’t inherently problematic. It is emblematic of an online-connected era. There is an authenticity in rotating courtside banner ads and between-play chatter from the announcers, shifting as the year moves on with new sponsors cycling in. The insistence on using Virtual Currency (MT) for all of compounds the matter, though. NBA wants you to drink Gatorade, but it’s also considering getting you to invest more real money in the sport.
MT has exploded into an infestation through the years, and it’s a potent lure. Buying particular variations of NBA 2K19 grants bonus 2K19 MT, an attractive proposition considering that player upgrades, new hairstyles, clothes and sneakers need currency. Spending MT on sneakers means less MT to upgrade DJ, and less chance to maintain your own in pickup or Pro-Am modes against real-world contest.
The slog to earn money without spending real money is inexcusable; shoes operate 1,500 MT and one player category update asks for 1,200 MT, but you only earn about 600 MT from the average game. The poking and prodding from MT-related pop-up offers when booting up a new 2K19 session irritates additional. The microtransactions can be ignored, at least, when in business mode, one of the few components of NBA 2K19 where MT isn’t available.
On the court, various tweaks are still improve NBA 2K’s simulation of basketball. Shots utilize a sharp new timing meter, also in NBA 2K19, the gap between open and contested shots is suitably significant. Any guardian’s hand in the area is likely to ship a jumper off course.
At default settings, fresh AI tweaks enable the opposing offense to keep possession, utilizing the shot clock to work the ball round. Not only does this look natural, but the times of playing just six-minute quarters for sensible outcomes have passed. I adhered to nine to ten minutes per quarter to generate realistic scores at default settings, inching nearer to the entire 12 minutes of a true game Download.
