NBA 2K17 just dropped a series of Thanksgiving Moments Challenges for MyTeam players, and they’re broken or removed. While 2K support fails to offer solutions, devotees are getting frustrated.
Issues cropped up yesterday on the NBA 2K subreddit, and the controversy has yet to subside. Specifically, two of the six seasonal challenges refuse to dole out their designated rewards, and some now offer VC instead of MT. As a result, 2K has removed the bugged content, but lots of deserved currency still hasn’t been delivered.
The two scrapped challenges in question featured Wilt Chamberlain and Jason Kidd. The latter might still be available on some consoles, but we’d advise waiting for it to be fixed before trying to accomplish it on the ladder. Despite holding their opponents to the correct number of points, NBA 2K17 still displays the challenge as failed. To make matters worse, all previous challenges must be completed before unlocking the next one. In other words, any broken parts in that chain potentially leave MyTeam enthusiasts at a standstill.
As expected, there was lots of communication between gamers and the 2K Sports support team in the hours to follow. One captured email suggested that there was a designated minimum score for the Kidd challenge, but nothing in the game suggested that. In these holiday hours responses have been slow, so loyalists are getting restless.
As those who follow NBA 2K17 closely will know, however, these recent glitches and bugs aren’t all that uncommon for this year’s title. Lost MT from challenges hasn’t just happened on Thanksgiving. It’s been a chronic problem for months. In fact, one particularly disgruntled fan suggested filing a class action lawsuit against the game’s publisher a few weeks ago. A major content update also went live earlier this week to address some significant shortcomings. This MyTeam glitch apparently didn’t make the changelog.
Thanksgiving seems like it could be a lost cause, but there will likely be many more challenges to complete in the coming weeks and months. Lost MT is essentially wasted time, but hopefully this is something that can be addressed in the future.
NBA 2K17 is available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. MyTeam enthusiasts should also check out our most recent collection of locker codes.
