Right now, it seems like there's some minimal attempt to 2K MT match the evaluations of the MyNBA 2K player characters, but very little to match on ability level of the true NBA 2K players. I'm not crazy for thinking that both good and poor NBA 2K players could appreciate NBA 2K more if they were consistently matched with NBA 2K players of their skill level? The issue right now is that, at least according to what is visible to the consumer, the steps that are available that you'd use to infer ability are lousy.
The MyRep tier is not particularly good, as unskilled NBA 2K players may play a lot of games, boosting their MyRep up. Naturally there's win%, but after you begin to perform matchmaking based on ability, win% would no longer be an excellent measure, since if the matchmaking is powerful, people's win% will stay approximately 50%. (If one NBA 2K player is good and another is bad, both will have win% around 50%, just one man is doing it against good competition, and another is doing it at poorer competition, both matched to their skill level.)
What about something like an Elo rating? This is a rating system used to accommodate NBA 2K players into NBA 2K players of similar degree. It's a bit as the RPI in college basketball, where it's not just about your win%, but your win% whilst accounting for the strength of your competitors. I mean, great NBA 2K players deserve to have additional very good teammates and not feel as"Dude, what's this random doing?" Bad NBA 2K players also have to enjoy NBA 2K, by enjoying people that are still similarly matched to their skill level. It does not seem like it'd be tough to execute, either.
I totally agree, me and a few of my buddies got back to 2k when quarantine started and we love to play with all the time to MyNeighborhood with each other. I can't say how annoying it's to be moving against 2 95 pure sharpshooters/offensive threats every match, and a 95 + glock when my friends are around 80-90. Doesn't matter if we change lobbies, go to different courts, etc. we are always completely below the level of our opponents.
However, for the casual NBA 2K gamers NBA 2K is not very friendly, going against someone who can green 7 seven threes in a match to Buy NBA 2K Coins over the first 2 minutes has so repetitive and is not enjoyable at all to play. Do not get me wrong it's not interesting to lose but to play against insanely high level NBA 2K gamers isn't enjoyable for me and my friends. Maybe I am complaining too much, perhaps I need to"get great," whatever it is I just wish I could have more fun playing NBA 2K with buddies.
