As the NBA 2K18 series has grown in popularity, so too has the value of its in-game currency. Where there’s value, there are dollars, and where there are dollars there will always be shadiness. 2K has been banning accounts in an attempt to crack down on those who aim to cheat their system or to find exploits in their game.
Virtual Currency aka NBA 2K 18 VC is a big deal, as are My Team Points. The former can be used to upgrade your MyPlayer which increases your chance for success in the MyCareer, MyGM, MyTeam, MyPark and Pro-Am modes.
With the strong push toward the eSports scene in Pro-Am and MyPark, maintaining a level playing field has become even more important.
So what gets a player banned in NBA 2k18 ? According to 2K Support, there are five violations:
- Virtual Currency (VC/MTP) selling and farming. (Examples of Selling VC: You offer to sell someone VC or MTP. Example of Farming: You realize you get 500 VC every time you create a My Player, so you keep creating them and deleting them to collect an unlimited amount of VC.)
- Purchase of Virtual Currency (VC/MTP) From Unauthorized Third Parties (Example: You see a tweet or message from someone selling VC or MyTeam points, and you pay them real money in exchange for the in-game currency.)
- Using Bots or Hacking (Example: This will primarily relate to PC users, but creating any bot of hacking initiative that delivers VC,nba 2k18 MT or any other in-game exploit.
- Account buying (Example: Someone has an account with 200,000 and offers to sell it you for XX amount of cash and you make the purchase.)
Virtual Currency (VC/MTP) promotion (Example: Promoting the sale of VC or MTP. Basically, it’s the flipside of the first violation.)
