Madden NFL 12

Madden NFL 12 Achievements

This One is Easy

Create a MUT team  

From the Main Menu, select Ultimate Team, press to skip the instructions and you will be asked to enter a Team Name. After entering your Team Name, the Achievement will unlock.

*Note: There seems to be a bug/glitch with this Achievement in which if you already have an MUT from past Madden games, this Achievement will not unlock because you will not be asked to make a New Team.

@9 i've heard that if you have play MUT before than you wont be able to unlock this achievement. i find this horse****. if EA doesn't fix this then i am done with EA sports. we shouldn't be punished or penalized for playing all the aspects of the game.

@14...dude the game hasn't even been out 24 hours. i'm sure they'll patch it and you'll get your 1000

Comment #16 by sdemon999
Wednesday, August 31, 2011 @ 03:13:15 AM

@15 EA has confirmed that if you played MUT before you can't get the cheevo
because it's not a "new" MUT. BS.

It doesn't make sense, they can't have an achievement that is impossible to obtain for people on release. Can they?

Wednesday, August 31, 2011 @ 10:35:00 AM

Hey EA!! I guarantee that I will NEVER buy another MUT PACK or any COINS ever again because of this Happy Horse-sheeet!! Its not about the 5GS points, its the guys make millions of dollars in after-market products like MUT Pack and Coins to buy the packs, but yet you cannot remedy a simple glitch that only rewards new Madden players. Sounds like a damn cell phone company: they only reward new customers; to hell with the guys that have been loyal year in and year out. EXTORTION!!!!

I have two friends. One has it one doesn't and both of them have never played MUT before. My past experience with EA sports is that they don't fix bug or glitches (especially with NHL).

its only an easy achievment if you have never owned a madden game before cause this shits retarted.

Friday, September 02, 2011 @ 03:13:40 PM

I have the same problem. Played MUT on Madden NFL 11 and no achievement.
My question is: can they fix an achievement just by bringing an update? Does someone here has seen this before, patching an achievement glitch with an update? Sorry for the nOOb question.

Comment #30 by Goldyman77
Friday, September 02, 2011 @ 11:34:34 PM

Didn't get my hands on the game yet since my bro's been hoggin it up on his account but this will be almost the 3rd or 4th straight game I've encountered with an achievement glitch/problem now. Apparently my ass is cursed because otherwise I couldn't explain why every game I play now is either turned offline so I can't get the 1K anymore or has glitched achievements that also don't allow for the 1K. Hopefully this is fixed and everybody gets it because I was fed up with EA before I heard this!

someone needs to step up and fix this EA should not punish user who have played ultimate team from start I get madden every year this is wrong

Me and my friend always have a achievment war when new games come out to see who can have the highest score on a game when the next one comes out, and since he has never played MUT before this probably be the death of me if I can not get this he will have 1000 and I will have to deal with 995:( I hope EA can some how fix this

Comment #34 by SuzukiRider452
Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 10:27:01 AM

@32 This glitch just isn't punishing people who have played MUT. I have friends who haven't owned a madden game since 07 and they still can't unlock this achievement. It seems to be a random thing. I have never heard of EA fixing anything much less an achievement.

Go Saints

Hey guys I found a resolution to this stupid thing. Here this is my conversation with an EA represenative Read it.

Nikhil: Hi, my name is Nikhil. How may I help you?

2314886642: Hi Im playing madden 12 right now

Nikhil: Hi.

Nikhil: Okay

2314886642: And Im playing madden ultimate team and there is an achievement for Making a team

2314886642: And it is not showing up because the criteria for the achievement is to make a team but when I log in it uses the team that I made in Madden 10

2314886642: Its called "This one is Easy"

Nikhil: Unfortunately,Its a temporary issue

2314886642: What do you mean its Temporary?

Nikhil: This will be resolved very soon

2314886642: Will it be in the form of an Update or somthing?

Nikhil: I just know that this i

Comment #36 by iAlexandrou
Monday, September 05, 2011 @ 02:31:44 PM

Nikhil: I just know that this is a temp issue. Our team is working on it.

2314886642: Do you know when it will be resolved?

Tuesday, September 06, 2011 @ 02:27:16 PM

She lied to get him off the chat line. I'll start taking bets that this isn't resolved in 48 hours, who wants in?

Someone else has already discussed with EA that this isn't an issue they are AT ALL about and outside of roster updates you probably shouldn't expect a title update through the lifespan of Madden 12.

Comment #42 by iAlexandrou
Wednesday, September 07, 2011 @ 08:03:33 AM

Are you sure that she lied to me? or what, this is the stupidest achievement ever who makes an achievement impossible to get for people who bought their games?

Comment #43 by iAlexandrou
Wednesday, September 07, 2011 @ 08:05:13 AM

I also talked to another person some manager or somthing and they said that you Might (dont quote me on this) be able to call of microsoft and they could maybe they can unlock the achievement on your account.

Thursday, September 08, 2011 @ 09:14:05 AM

wow first i got to say i love that gamer tag "ocho cinco99" way better then that estaban tag chad had.. one of my biggest complaints about this site "and most others" is that anyone can post what ever they want with out any facts. how could this guy possibly know if the lady YOU talked to lied to you, although after many years of talking with these companies i have never had one suggest calling microsoft for a resolution. so you all dont feel jerked around sony ps has had the same issue. EA is aware of the issue and they have posted that they may try to fix the problem in an update

EA Customer support is hilarious. They told #36 it's a known issue and it's being resolved but they told me it's not glitched, it was only meant to bring new players to MUT. Then they proceeded to tell me it's not being patched. LOL, I think they just tell you whatever they feel like saying at the time. EA is a joke.

Comment #49 by Wsox101
Tuesday, September 13, 2011 @ 10:33:53 AM

I called EA sports also and thye said their is nothing they can do but for us to hope and wait that they release a update to clear the achievement but nothing guaranteed. BS

Comment #50 by Madden NFL
Thursday, September 15, 2011 @ 02:46:53 PM

Attention: You can actually make this achievement.

Step 1: Go to Dashboard and then to your Xbox360 memory, go to games then to
MADDEN NFL 10/11 erase your MUT Team from MADDEN NFL 10/11, then go to
MADDEN NFL 12 memory and erase the game update.

Step 2: Now that Madden NFL 12 updated again go to MUT Teams and you'ull
be forced to create a new MUT Team again.

Step 3: Enjoy 5g Achievement...

Monday, September 19, 2011 @ 10:20:10 AM

you would think that would work but in my case ive done all of that and the game still remembers my old team, and i deleted EVERYTHING from past maddens and this one

Comment #52 by americansychos
Monday, September 19, 2011 @ 01:10:14 PM

i think there is some form of online memory to it. because i have deleted everything off every madden i had deleted the update and tried to restart and my old team pops back up

Comment #53 by americansychos
Monday, September 19, 2011 @ 01:36:04 PM

if someone can find a way to deleted the EA memory let us know

Comment #54 by Wsox101
Tuesday, September 20, 2011 @ 09:05:21 PM

yea I have tried deleting everything also and it would not work.. its only 5G but thats not the problem its just a stupid glitch that EA over looked and i have every achievement but this one it sucks

I haven't tried to earn this A yet, but I hope having 100% A's in Madden 09
doesn't prevent me from earning it. Because I'm the best ever.

Comment #58 by crazed blue
Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 11:15:56 PM

how many of you played the demo before getting the game and didnt get the achievement. Because i played i havent played a madden sense 2008. but i played the demo and didnt get it

Comment #59 by Wsox101
Sunday, September 25, 2011 @ 09:02:29 PM

ya I played the demo bu it shouldnt have anything to do with the achievement in the game.. weird

Comment #60 by Grayfeather
Friday, September 30, 2011 @ 12:05:34 PM

The PS3 version of this page has updated this trophy's text with the following message:
"If you have a previous MUT Team from another version of Madden, then you are not able to create a new one. The game imports your old MUT team, and thus making the trophy unattainable. There is no way around this issue as of today" Anyone considering deleting old data, don't bother. This really irritates me because it is the one achievement that is preventing me from having 100%

Comment #61 by joban89
Friday, October 07, 2011 @ 11:42:17 AM

All is well! They have fixed it in the upcoming update!!

They said there is no confirmed date, but i'm sure it will be soon. And For the people who are trying to delete memory...DONT. MUT is linked to your ea account.
