An NBA 2K23 player who spent $400 to upgrade two different MyPlayer builds gets roasted on the official NBA 2K subreddit.

The NBA 2K community has made their frustrations clear with the basketball sim’s latest entry. Incredibly low VC payouts for challenges and quests are at the forefront of criticism of the game.

Players have also taken offense at how much in-game cash and real money is needed to max out user-created characters.

Obviously, these concerns aren’t going to be allayed anytime soon, and some fans have started blaming those who spend too much on in-game purchases for the ongoing monetization problem.

NBA 2K23 Player Rostered for Money Spent on MyPlayer Builds

Twitch Streamer Recklezzz787 recently shared screenshots of their two MyPlayer builds on Twitter, only one of which has a maximum of 99 OVR.

Notably, Recklezzz787 claims to have invested $400 in real money in the two creations. Just by getting his Point Guard from 98 to 99, the player gained a whopping 70,000 VC, which the player believes is an example of “2K robbing the community”.

Interestingly enough, other NBA 2K23 users believe that players like the ones above are part of the problem. “Don’t let this kind of spending be the norm,” veeno wrote in a Reddit post with more than 1,500 votes.

Another Redditor agreed, noting that “this guy is the reason 2K won’t change.” Of course, several other users also agreed.

One person pointed out the absurdity of spending nearly six times the cost of the game to increase a number of characters. “You could even buy a console,” added another Redditor.

It’s fair to argue that big money backers like the player above, or whales, help fuel the “greedy” monetization practices of 2K. As always, real change is unlikely to bubble to the surface until players start talking to their wallets.
