Great i'm going to have trouble with this achievement, I hated Ultimate Team in Madden 11, it sucks because of that contract stuff and getting coins.

I hate MUT mode... now they're trying to force us to use it (and subsequently buy their team packs...) by putting achievements in that mode.

Oh well - Guess I'll 85% this game and move on.

I don't understand why people think this will be hard. You don't need to play 100 games in MUT to get a 80+ team. People seem to have overlooked collections. I have a 98 overall team in Madden 11 with under 35 games played.

I think I will quit playing Madden (and any other EA sports game) until they stop having achievements tied to MUT. I hated playing through that in 11 sooo much.

Is this possible without buying packs via MP?

Comment #12 by walkingtiger
Tuesday, August 30, 2011 @ 07:50:58 PM

have to buy legendary packs with MP only? lame. but why is it "MUT team"? Madden Ultimate Team team? a bit repetitive

Comment #13 by walkingtiger
Tuesday, August 30, 2011 @ 07:52:41 PM

the team is a 72-74 when you just get the starter pack too, but can't get "this one is easy"

Guys..its not that big of a deal if you don't like Ultimate Team..yes EA is a money hog when it comes to this mode I agree, but why wouldn't they keep putting it in there games? I think ill get this one cause it was easier than the NHL11 Ult Team

You don't have to spend money to advance in MUT, it makes things quicker, but so does buying an automatic 5 star prospect, or a new pipeline state to unlock those achievements in NCAA. You can have fun in this mode without spending money you just have to be willing to constantly change up certain aspects of your team. Keep your QB, a RB and a few others and let the rest be expendable, if you try and keep the same team throughout you will not have as much fun and will constantly have to buy more points.

How to do get coins in MUT: Play some games until you have enough for like a gold pack. Discard/collect the players unless they're like 95+. Auction off the stadiums/coaches for bottom dollar. Do the same with jerseys and playbooks once those collections come out. Once you have enough just complete collections and buy packs. I already have a 96 overall team and many top tier cards.

Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 03:47:54 AM

@24: Seriously? How much coinage do you get per game? Did you get the hall of fame edition or something? I started at 62 overall and have only made it up to 70 after like more than 30 matches.

Comment #26 by Loperdopo
Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 06:44:30 PM

I think this mode is pretty fun, especially when you play online you're automatically set up with someone near your team rating so you aren't playing 70 ratings vs 90 ratings. I've played 6 games so far, won them all, got around 10000 coins and bought the Gold Premium pack. My overall Rating is high 70s, I forget what exactly.

wtf i have an 82 overall team still no achievement.

Comment #28 by niiccckkkk
Monday, September 05, 2011 @ 06:24:09 AM

anyone having trouble with this... if you're just playing cpu then you're doing the same mistake i did. i spent the first couple days doing that and i only went from about 62 to 67. today only, i played head-on-head matches and was getting over double the coins i got from cpu matches, and i've only won just over half the time. i'm now at 79 and really close to completing some collections which will put this cheevo in the bag. that being said, it's prolly a good idea to start against cpu to level up a bit so you might have an edge over your opponent in the head to head matches.

Comment #31 by Anorexicturtle
Wednesday, October 05, 2011 @ 03:56:56 PM

This is simple.... Set it to a low rated team and make it so they suck, if you want it quick. If you get a fantasy card, put on auction. I sold Ted Ginn for 30,000 and bought 3 Gold Premium packs, still have 9k, with an 86 rated team. You also get a couple hundred from plain old online. Just rack up coins, buy some Gold packs

Comment #32 by CrazyItalian90x
Wednesday, October 12, 2011 @ 02:11:53 AM

Im new to MUT and the collections, not really understanding how they work. Are you rewarded anything for individual cards that you transfer to collections, or only when you get the full set? Cuz id rather not put 80+ rated guys into collections if i dont get anything and cant use them in games.

Comment #33 by CrazyItalian90x
Wednesday, October 12, 2011 @ 02:13:57 AM

Also does anyones actually buy auction cards? cuz ive put a bunch of cards on the auction block and not sold any of them (good cards too, 85+), considering minimum for a card is 3000 coins.

Comment #34 by ebush08
Thursday, October 13, 2011 @ 07:58:00 PM

@32 & 33: I thought it was gonna be hard to build my MUT team too but it was really easy. This is all you have to do (or at least, it's what I did): Play against the CPU on Pro (because playing them on rookie will penalize you), and you should get around 700 - 900 coins per win. As soon as you have enough coins to buy a pack, go ahead and buy a bronze pack. Add the stadium, coach cards, and jersey cards to their collections, and use the player cards to make your team better. Every time you have enough to buy a bronze pack, do. Anytime you you get a stadium, coach card, or jersey card that you already have in your collections, add them to the auction block for THE CARDS VALUE. Do not, meaning the buy it now price, and add the card to the auction for 1 hour. If it doesn't sell, just

Comment #35 by ebush08
Thursday, October 13, 2011 @ 07:59:18 PM

add it right back. Soon you will be making all kinds of gold from selling cards you have already and from continuing to play games. When you can easily afford a silver pack, buy one and do the same process you've been doing with the bronze.

When I started I thought it was gonna be hard, but yes people do buy cards literally all day long on the auction block, but you have to remember everyone that is buying, is also selling, so it sometimes takes posting your card to the block a time or two before it sells cause there are many others of the same cards selling at the same time. Remember: Only post for an hour, and set the "buy it now" price as the same value as the card. Trust me, if you follow this method you'll have no trouble building your team high. I only played 9 games before

Comment #36 by ebush08
Thursday, October 13, 2011 @ 08:00:26 PM

I completed my first set and after that I only played cause I wanted to, and no longer to earn gold. It's been like 4 days and I have over 3.5 mil in gold. Easy and fun too.

Friday, November 25, 2011 @ 05:26:14 PM

@20 & 27... i also have 82 rated team and the achievement didnt drop until after i played a game with them.

Comment #39 by The Kevster 33
Monday, December 05, 2011 @ 12:14:28 PM

I'm just going to play with the garbage team I was given and collect coins. Does anyone think I can get an 80 rated team if I buy 3 gold packs at once or would I need more?

Comment #40 by ty tan trouble
Monday, January 02, 2012 @ 01:38:42 PM

I am going to try saving up to like 27,000 coins and then buy like 3 gold premium packs so that I don"t have to worry about contracts. I hate the contracts.

i'm pretty sure others have encountered this problem as well but i have a gap in my depth chart (at LG specifically) after simming one game against the cpu. i'm pretty sure that injuries were turned off and the contracts can't possibly be up.

this prevents me from also getting the 10 and 20 played...

any ideas? seems as though i'm stuck and i refuse to spend msp equivalent to how much i paid for the game.
