2K Sports are one of the developers that have been hit by Hurricane Sandy. Their support team is running a skeleton crew while things get back up and running again, but that didn't prevent the publisher from posting a rather ambiguous message regarding server functionality for their titles. According to the post, as of November 1st, these are the games that would be functional online:Major League Baseball 2K12NBA 2K13
The post suggests that these two games are the only 2K Sports titles to retain online functionality, but I can confirm that this is not true. Matchmaking servers also remain open for these games:http://www.trueachievements.com/AllPro-Football-2K8/ach....htmCollege Hoops 2K8Don King Presents: PrizefighterThe BIGS 2
All Top Spin
Unfortunately, this does mean that the servers for NBA 2K12
have been closed with no prior warning, leaving several unobtainable achievements. These servers are not affected by Hurricane Sandy and will not come back online. This is a list of the affected achievements:
The Lincoln achievement in NBA 2K12 worth 44 pointsWin 5 ranked matches total. The Hamilton achievement in NBA 2K12 worth 69 pointsWin 10 ranked matches total.
Any player who is missing one or more of the above will also not be able to get The Whole Shebang
achievement. Those who have already obtained all of the online achievements will still be able to unlock this achievement without any bother.
If there are any more affected achievements that we've missed, post a comment in the thread below and we'll be sure to update this post.
Thanks to the members of the community who sent this one in!
