I want to talk about MyLeague first, as it is the probably the best way you can earn VC fast and stock pile in NBA 2K18. This mode allows you to earn some easy VC with a few changes to the settings. Start by creating a new franchise and choosing whatever team you like—the team you choose doesn’t really matter. Now, go to the options and change the game difficulty to Hall of Fame. Next, change the quarter length to 12 minutes and turn Fatigue off. Then, set Game Speed to 100 and turn Foul out off.
The next step involves going to the CPU Sliders and setting everything to zero. After that, go to the User Sliders and set everything to 100. Once you have done this, go into a game and simulate with Simcast. Wait until the fourth quarter with three minutes left and then stop the simulation. Jump into the game and start playing.
You should have little to no problems winning because of the adjustments we made earlier. When all is said and done, you’ll earn up to 1000 VC.
One of the easiest ways to earn VC in NBA 2K18 is by downloading and using the MyNBA2K18 mobile app. It’s free to download from your mobile phone’s app store and you can earn 600 VC daily!
The 600 VC is broken down like this, 100 VC with the daily login bonus and up to 500 VC from 10 matches in quick game. Regardless if you win or loose, you will get 50 VC per game! Games generally take anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds at most to play. So you are looking about 10 minutes to earn 500 VC.
Additionally, during the NBA season you can win VC with Pick and Win. This is where you choose on a daily basis who will win games. If you choose correctly, you’ll win VC. When all is said and done, you can earn up to 1000 VC a day with little to no effort!
