Sad, though? It's not. I work hard for my income and it's not putting me below the poverty line to purchase VC. I'm not even using it for the skill points, as I put at least 20,000 VC in accessories and animations right after the draft to give my player a unique feel.

Think about how much money gamers individually put into DLC every year and since the birth of DLC. It's not any sadder than paying >$500 for Rockband DLC or map packs for FPS's.
Like I said. Nothing wrong with VC as long as its add on content to the game. Like an extension.

Those rock band packs...and COD maps...random costumes etc are EXTRA/ADD ONs that dont come with the original packaging.

2k is charging (those who wish to pay) for things that are already in the original packaging....

You can create a player outside of my player and use all the accessories you spend VC on...

The problem with the idea of buying VC is it isnt for DLC...
Its for things that are already in the game man...
Lets say you did buy Rock Band for $60
and they had in game currency for EXTRA/ADDITIONAL Content not already included in the game(songs/guitars etc)
That would warrant spending actually money.
Your essentially customizing the game.
Say you spent $60 extra on a bunch of song packs.
Given rock band is the type of game it is.
You'll have a whole new experience.

With 2k & VC...Its just not the same...at all.
The things you can purchase if you BUY VC with real currency includes wristbands and armbands that are included in every game.
If purchasing VC with real money meant we could buy new add ons for the game (courts & players)like you can buy maps or songs. No problem.
That adds to the game...If I have 50 Maps in COD and thats what I play. It cant get old.
If spending real money on VC meant we could buy new courts or whatever they decided to throw us
Their wouldnt be a problem...That is true DLC..

It just doenst make sense to buy it with real money if I can just play the game and get the same exact things without spending actual money.

From where I'm standing this is how I see it.
First and foremost hats off to the people that get their vc purchase to work.
I've purchased 3 and still haven't got any extra vc at all.

Also I'm guessing the only people complaining are people who play online and pwn newbies like myself who are learning how to play.
My career is slow, ungratifying and extremely hard to generate vc.

If I want to spend money to make a team that gives me a chance against veteran players then who are you to complain.
Do Milwaukee complain because the lakers have more money to offer players to get the better players etc? No.

Stop whining and get used to it. Millions more will be sold and used.
Now it just means all your games aren't gonna be simple.

Besides its not the attributes that make the player good.
If you can't control him then extra vc isn't gonna make a difference.

Thank you for proving our point. They purposely made VC hard to earn in my player so that people will buy VC with real money. As for the Milwaukee/LA comparison, that's simply not a good comparison....

24oct explained it well in a few posts above. Anyone that reads that post and still disagrees with the OP is simply either too close minded or rich to the point where money is irrelevant.

i only agree with the buying of basic accessories are just plain dumb. standard bands, pads and gear shouldve been free.

spending real money (if you choose) on adidas and nike gear that gives you boosts i can agree with.

No one is forcing any of you guys to spend your money to buy VC. It's your choice. They're are not forcing you to spend you VC on accessories. It's your choice. Yeah the basic gear should be free and you should be able to change it to any color, but it doesn't even cost that much.

My Time > My Money. I'll buy whatever I want.

I find it funny people find it okay to spend countless hours unlocking things in Myplayer, yet complain about spending money on the very same thing.

Think about it. How much of that time can you get back....?

Now how much of that money can you get back? Anyone making a decent salary can get 10k VC in literally 10 minutes of work.

All you no lifers go get a damn job and STFU.

We've already paid $59.99 (+tax or shipping), so that's far from being a "cheap a$$".

Don't say anything when game studios start charging you a dollar to start up the game.
