Madden 13 Ultimate Team Screens and Trailer

  • Posted on 09 July 12 at 21:36Permalink
    New legends, new challenges, and more

    EA first added the Ultimate Team game mode to FIFA back in 2008, and since then the mode has found its way to all other major sports franchise under the EA Sports umbrella. Madden's Ultimate Team makes a lot of sense for football fans because it combines the depth of the most popular fantasy sport with the addicting "catch-em-all" attitude of trading cards. This year's Ultimate Team mode is getting a few upgrades, and you can see them for yourself in the new screens and trailer.

    What do you think of the MUT game mode? Is it something you're interested in or is it just a distraction on the achievement list? Madden NFL 13 debuts on August 28th.

    I play a lot of FUT because I love football (soccer) but as much as I like American Football it is sadly just a distraction.

    I LOVE the MUT mode in Madden. It takes that team loyalty that I have for my team (Green Bay Packers) and marries it to the Fantasy Football concept so damn well.

    I've never played the Madden series but I really want to know if this looks significantly different than the previous Ultimate Team series?

    Does it offer anything revolutionary or is it just another reboot with a different number?

    I ask because Ultimate Team is the only reason I play FIFA and I was hoping (SO GODDAM MUCH) that they give it a much needed overhaul.

    I'm crossing my fingers and hoping they have learned UT lessons from FIFA...

    I'd like these UT modes a lot more if:

    1) There weren't stupid achievements linked to them (especially the one for getting a rare player in a pack)
    2) You couldn't use MSP to buy backs.

    Option 2 is only there for EA to rinse some more money out of us anyway.

    As a massive fan of Madden, NFL, and as someone who completes the achievement list every year for a Madden game, I must say I don't like MUT mode.

    Great idea, but the cost of buying more packs of cards and having the players contracts run out is annoying.
  • Posted on 10 July 12 at 02:23Permalink
    I`m out, just like watching that game !!!

    Hopefully 13 will have a program like 12 did, and gives you some coins if you've made a team in the past.


    I don't mind the MUT achievements too much though, and it's always a fun thing.
    How much for the whole kitten kaboodle?

    The achievements for MUT, last year, was easy play 5, 10 and 20 games. Then field a team 80 overall which I had by game 15. Don't know why people are complaining about it. MUT was awesome and I'm glad they uped the reserves, it was getting messy later on once I started getting a lot of games in.

    I don't like how quickly contracts expire on MUT. It's really too much shuffling and distraction from what might otherwise be a decent mode. When everyone's contracts are up at the same time, it's a huge hassle.

    If they make it to where you can only buy cards with MSP instead of in-game coins, then it would truly suck.

    I'm stoked, 1000 card limit and you can actually buy legendary packs without using MSP this year. Looks like they overhauled it a lot.

    can we get that commitment brought to the HUT team i.e. NHL 11 anyone?

    Mut is what it sounds like ..... A dirty stinky dog thrown into a dog show.

    Here is what sucked about last years mutt.....

    I had to buy packs with MSP for the achieve.
    Cards will be "used" up and you lose them, unless you get contract extend cards which is impossible to get legit for all your cards.

    Go away mutt!

    Someone put this money hungry mutt down please.

    You never had the pleasure of the FIFA 12 "get a team of the week player in a pack" achievement. This was ENTIRELY luck based, and with each pack costing a fortune in coins and 95% of the time giving you nothing worthwhile (if not even less!) it was a case of EA saying "spend MSP on this achievement, please!"

    Were it not for EA's terrible programming this achievement would be a ~15/100,000 chance, but a few glitches mean it's a load easier to get.

    I hate UT so very much. If they are going to have cards in the game why can't they do it the way they used to where you just collect them with points you get from playing any mode in the game. Also you shouldn't ever have to pay to get achievements as is usually the case in this, NHL and FIfa UT's. Last beef of post stop having packs we can only buy with money that contain the best players.
