    Wow, that's a stupidily quick turnaround for shutting down a games servers. I mean 2 years is nothing for what's supposed to be a Triple A sports title.... Imagine the outrage of this was EA
    Let's Go!

    2K is used to close servers 2 years after release. Nothing New.

    2K Sports titles have the server closure date determined before the game is released.

    In fact, they’re published in the game manual.

    But you are right, people seem to be easy on 2K for server closures whereas EA are somehow the absolute worst anti-gaming company in the world.
    If users on this site searched before posting, the forums would be a much better place.

    the way the 360 game is I am curious how they released such a turd I know it is an newer game for an old system but certain things in that game made it almost unbearable you couldnt find anyone searching sometimes u would finish a game it wouldnt count players on the wrong teams that game came out not 1 team update and play identification was brutal. I was with the Timberwolves and they though Jeff Teague was Damian Dillard just overall broken
    I'm batman

    2K20 is a lot better. It’s a grind but I’m at 2200 cards already. Good ratio

    Nice, I'm currently sitting at 210 lol. I barely get on but it's nice to see this achievement has already been unlocked by a small few.

    True, but most people who play sports games enough to get this achievement, probably never look at achievements at all. Plus, Gears games have roughly 200k-300k gamers just on this site alone, whereas 2k18 doesn't even have 25k.

    I think he either cheated, or somehow payed for it, just look at all his other stats

    I think the the servers stay up in a peer to peer manner, but leagues, ranked modes, etc are lost with their server closures so it's not a total server shutdown.

    Peer to peer is different. You don't have to connect to a server on their end to play against someone else. You're only connecting directly to another player.

    I hope that most of the people who own the game were able to complete it before that.
