I did it!!! I finally deleted this POS game off my hard drive

Postby JWL3 on Mon Jan 23, 2017 3:02 pm

I've threatened to do so many times, but I finally did it. And I feel as free as a former addict/alcoholic.

All you PC players know exactly how miserable MyPark has become. Every year it was the same, the park would be dominated by a few teams of hacker extraordinaires, using Cheat Engine, occupying the four corners of mypark. You couldn't avoid playing them cause they apparently never play each other. Now, most hackers sucked and non hackers like me could beat them regularly. But against the best hackers who play well and in a squad with other supreme hackers, it'd be impossible to beat. Why did it take so long to quit? Well, because the game is EVIL. Every time I'd go on a 10 game losing streak, all to hackers shooting full court shots, the game would let me win 10 in a row against non hackers/crappy hackers. That would draw me back. Since the game's release, these hackers have driven most normal non hackers out of mypark. I stayed because my squad was good enough to actually still win (my W/L record is about 400-200.) But most of the non hacker comp has since left.

The straw that broke the camel's back was when the other team was hitting FULLY DEFENDED contact layups and then I missed a wide open 18 footer. That's the moment when I knew I hit rock bottom and wondered wtf I was still doing. The playing field isn't merely tilted, it's freaking vertical. And "archetypes" played right into these scumbags' hands. Hey, great idea, 2k limiting all the legit players to 70 rated shooting maxed out while the cheaters are 99 everything with all the HOF badges.


I'm done with PC bball. F U 2k.

2k dev, is that you?

I get why people buy the console version now. It's an inferior product and you cannot choose resolutions for your monitor (21:9 3440x1440), but I would play on 640x480 if that meant no hackers.

The console version is neither inferior or superior to the PC version, at least in terms of gameplay, modes, and features. Any graphical differences are pretty negligible at most. It has its advantages (larger userbase) and disadvantages (less customisation due to a lack of external editing functionality), but otherwise it's the exact same game. One of the recent updates added 4K support for the PS4 Pro, so it holds its own in the graphics/resolution department.

In any case, I'm sorry to hear it's come to that for you playing MyPARK on PC. MyPARK doesn't really appeal to me on any platform for various reasons, but it's obviously very popular and a lot of people do enjoy it, so it's a shame that the PC version of it has been ruined by hackers. I take it there's no other mode you're interested in? MyCAREER obviously isn't for everyone, but MyLEAGUE, MyGM, and MyTEAM are all very robust, if franchise or team building modes appeal to you at all.

I understand your decision. The most fun I have had is a few pro am games and park games during early release weekend.

Most of the time I just create rosters, draft classes, and mods. Its not a bad game but online 2k pc community is pretty bad in my opinion.

It would be cool if you could play with XBOX & PS4 users in same time. Would make community more connected and closer.

Cool idea but that would make it far worse because pc hackers and I'm sure it would cause more lag.

Cross-platform has worked out quite well for Rocket League, but yeah, the hackers would be able to ruin even more people's good time then. That's an issue that's going to have to be resolved, cross-platform play or not.
