I managed to sign in, create my dude, do a tutorial game, but I literally cannot do anything else. Says that I keep having connection problems and throwing error codes that don't work on the website. Constantly crashes back to the main screen. Can't advance my career because it's stuck in that "generating stats" part and will not progress past it. Can't even delete the save and start over because they warn you not to. Already rebooted everything and everything else works fine.

Good thing it's free, I guess.

I got the same thing too but I deleted my player thinking that I could just recreate it. I'd like to finish the game to get the rest of the achievements but now says that I've already played and can't progress further. Hopefully 2K will make a concession in these cases.

Leave it to 2k servers to be garbage. I was playing and almost finished with the achievements and then I was disconnected from their servers. Now I can't continue in the MyCareer section as it tells me there is an issue with my connection to their servers. Nothing else I own has a connection issues with anything. I have reset my modem. Reauthorized my modem. Opened all ports. Nat set to open. And still this pos game won't let me connect to their bs servers. Their status website shows the servers are up and no issues. Anyone else experience this and have found a fix???

Exact same problem after my 5th game, I can't get back in either. I had a little hope when I deleted my save from everywhere and it let me create a new player but then the same bs connection message.
Tried 2 dummies accounts... they magically can connect.

Go to your email, and verify the 2k account you set up. That fixed the problem for me.

Just did this and it worked for me. I'm finally able to connect online.

Igneus DarkSide's blog post - Restarting NBA 2k17 Prelude after a glitch/freeze

I never tried this method so can't verify it works.

I requested that 2K remove all trace of my gamertag from The Prelude servers, which they did and I was able to play through it a second time, unlocking my last 2 achievements.

I never got an email from them. Not in spam either.

I had this same issue the other day, not sure if they killed the service.
Then again there would probably have been some news somewhere if they had.

Idk if anyone will see this but when I try to play the bonus game it just says loading and won't let me select anything, anyone else have this issue and know how to fix it? I've al ready restarted the game one by deleying everything and still nothing...cry

I've had this problem all day yesterday. I did the delete save data trick and re-did the game, I deleted the game and re-installed, and tried moving the game to the internal drive, all with no luck. Kept having problems with the servers though, so I'm hoping it's to do with that and nothing more sinister.

I am also having issues with the bonus match not loading. Played through on a second account and got the same results. Tried doing the glitch workaround and played through again and still nothing.

Yeah, having the same problem with mine as well. Knowing 2k, there won't be a patch to fix this.
