Much was made about the 2K’s newest addition Park After Dark. The mode, which is part of NBA 2K17’s MyPark, was supposed to add a club-like element with bright neon lights and the latest music in the MyPark playground. 2K even got Snoop Dogg to guest DJ the first edition of Park After Dark, which took place on Saturday Nov. 26.

The debut of Park After Dark, according to the Twitter accounts of 2K’s Chris Manning and Ronnie Singh, was a success with many fans proclaiming it fun and new. Going into the first edition of Park After Dark, many of the issues that faced MyPark on a daily basis, such as players not being allowed to come into games or randomly being kicked out, were not fixed. It was only a matter of time before those issues reared its ugly head. And during Park After Dark, it did.

There were complaints about Park After Dark where players were waiting to get into games, but never made it into any games during the “party.” There were also complaints from players where they would be randomly kicked out from their games for no reason. What’s more, players paid exorbitant amounts of VC for Park After Dark accessories and clothing and had to wait for almost an hour before games started. The narrative from those at 2K and the fans who participated in Park After Dark are significantly different. Here are some tweets from unsatisfied players.

It is important to remember that this was the first night of NBA 2K17 Park After Dark. While many believe that night one was a complete and total disaster, it gave the team at 2K an idea of how many people would most likely be in MyPark during those special nights so that they can adjust accordingly. It will be interesting to see how the second night goes and whether many of the issues that fans reported will be fixed in another patch.
