Earning VC this year is definitely more difficult than accumulating VC in the past. Not only does 2K not reward you any VC for Play Now Online Games, the VC that they give you for playground games is pretty low. 100 if you lose, 200 if you win. Now keep in mind it takes around 250k to max out a player to a 99. It would literally take months of gameplay to get there, so I can't really blame people for automatically buying there way to an 85 overall.
