Neither of these problems are unique to NBA 2K15. The Madden 15 release arrived earlier this year with missing pre-order bonuses and connectivity issues for the first several days, but EA eventually delivered all the pre-order bonus items and fixed server issues partially.

“It’s a great game… But the servers are HORRIBLE!! They worked for a few hours. Now I can’t play any game mode except for a dang quick game. I can’t upgrade my player on my career, can’t go to the park. Can’t play myteam. Cause the servers don’t work. 2k always has this problem when the game comes out. They need to fix it ASAP”

On Twitter users complain about the NBA 2K15 servers as well, asking for any kind of ETA on a fix, but there is no specific information on when users will be able to play NBA 2K15 without server problems.
