There really is a way to boost this. Cheesy, but it does work. All the way through the 10 games you'll need.

First, it'd be nice to have a decent team. Try to do the skills trainer first or play some games so you've earned some good players. Not talking 80+, just high 70s or so if possible. Then do the following:

1. Adjust your lineup to make your best overall team.
2. Swap bad players at every position so that your top players aren't starters.
3. Try to get your team to about 57-59 overall.
4. Have a friend do the same.
5. Search at exactly the same time. You match based on skill level.
6. If you don't match (and I mean you don't both see the screen change at the same time), you can:
a. Both press the home button and quit Madden, or
b. Go into the game, pause at the first opportunity (after the kickoff), go into depth chart and choose your best lineup. Since you probably matched against a 60 or so, you should be able to beat them reasonably easy.

You have 2 potential losses to give, so keep trying to match.

IMPORTANT!! When you match, play through the games at least a while. Let the winner score a few TDs. Use Chew Clock to speed up the game. Finishing the games is better than always quitting out, since EA has been known to ban players who constantly quit. Play some, and then you can't really be blamed because they're the ones who matched you in the first place.

ColtoN899Why is it good to have a decent team first?

SashamorningIn case you don't match up against your friend. You can't quit out once you match up except by dashboarding. If you have a decent team, you can reset your depth chart that should be better than whomever you matched against.

ColtoN899Oh I see. So if I were to boost this and me and my boosting partner dashboard out every time we don't match up, we don't need a decent team right?

SashamorningYes, but by having a lower rates team you might actually match up better, and if not, go to your depth chart and reorder and you'll probably be fine.

ColtoN899We were gonna boost this and I got the other 2 online MUT achievements, but when I got to post-season, it got really hard to match up. After like 40 minutes we found each other again and I won the divisional. Then on the conference final (last game!!), we both matched up at the same time but it was with different people and I lost the game so I have to do it all over again >.< Anyway, did you also have more trouble finding each other when one of you was at the post-season?

Also, can you quit out as soon as you see another players name in the top right corner, or does that count as a loss? (In case that happens again)

SashamorningWatch for the "stutter" when you're searching. You should both stutter almost simultaneously. If not, dashboard immediately. If you quit before the kickoff, that should work... but don't count on it exclusively.

Again, a warning: EA bans for repeated quitting, so be careful. That's why I suggest having better players and manipulating the depth chart if possible.

SashamorningAnd yes, I did find that it was harder to match up in the post-season. Loading screens suggest that matching up against the same players repeatedly affects payouts, so this may carry over into playoff matching. One way to avoid matching against the "same" person may be for your friend to use an alt.

KILLING5PR33Never heard of ea banning for quitting especially last year . They ban you for boosting Bc you win coins and you can use those coins to buy free agents in auctions.

SashamorningBoosting by quitting is the most efficient method. If EA would let us quit out once someone joined but before the game started, it wouldn't be an issue.

KILLING5PR33Yeah I agree it's the best method but I never heard of being banned for quitting . They ban you for boosting coins. A lot of people that play madden boost to get free coins to upgrade there mut team.
