NBA 2K’s most played game mode has a new look in the upcoming game, but it could still use more changes.
NBA 2K21 is just days away, and while we’ve gotten a new setting for The Neighborhood with 2K Beach, there’s some other things we’d like to see to improve The Park.
The Park is one of the 2K series greatest innovations, and one of its most played game modes.
With that being said, some minor additions could massively upgrade The Park for NBA 2K21.
The Park is an awesome place to try out your builds in a less competitive environment. At least it’s supposed to be.
Unfortunately with the way lobbies currently work, players of any and all OVRs can match together in the same lobby, and maxed out pre-made teams abuse this often to catch newer, weaker players.

Even worse, newer players are often skipped over for games due to their rep or rating. That means finding a game is not only slow but extra challenging for new players.

With some matchmaking control for Park lobbies, NBA 2K21 can balance the skill and OVR difference between teams. This could even factor in play time and pre-made status as a way to make better matchups.
The Park allows for 3v3 and 2v2 games depending on the court you choose. More options could however open the game mode up even more.
While the Rec offers the 5v5 most players might want, giving some 1v1 or possibly even the 3v3v3 score and stay on game type from MyCAREER practice would be a huge plus.

This would obviously have to be combined with bigger lobbies to not slow things down. But in the end it could be an awesome way to shake things up.
