The exploit, which involves the game’s Virtual Currency system, allowed players to earn VC to upgrade their MyPlayer without doing the work to do so. Basically, players were able to save a game late in the fourth quarter, quit and load up the save and take the VC for completing the game. But it wasn’t just a one time issue, players were able to load the game save over and over to earn the VC winnings without playing a full game.
2K caught the issue within a week, and quickly worked to release a patch to nullify the exploit. The patch went live on Friday.
