NBA 2K20 launched last week on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. And well, the game has some issues. Beyond some questionable microtransactions, there's also a copious amount of bugs and performance issues plaguing the game across its various platforms. But that's not all, there's also been a lot of criticism lodged against some design decisions, especially around progression. In general, it seems a lot of players of the game, regardless of the platform, aren't thrilled with the state of the title at launch.
Taking to Twitter, many of these players vented their frustration with the game and 2K. In fact, there's even some prominent members of the game's community suggesting 2K didn't deliver the game it suggested it would ahead of launch. The complaints started to pile up to the point that #Fix2K20 was trending on the social media platform.

My night has consisted of our Pro-Am team being deleted and my opponent quitting a MyTeam Unlimited game resulting in giving me a loss #Fix2K20— Robbie May (@May__GT) September 9, 2019
All I ask is fix the attribute, badge points, and the blue screens. Leave gameplay alone. #Fix2K20— Marley (@marley213s_) September 9, 2019

Of course, many of the issues currently causing problems for players can be addressed with patches, and will likely be remedied soon. However, the monetization structure and progression systems may prove to be trickier to fix for developer Visual Concepts.
