MUT – Helpful Tips to Reach Gold 2 in the Weekend League

Why Is Gold 2 the Benchmark?

Gold 2 awards you automatic entry into the following weekend’s tournament. Additional prizes include 30k worth of coins, a Gold Tier 2 WL Pack and 2 Silver Tier 1 WL Packs.

Notable pulls out of my Gold 2 Packs from the first week included: 85 OVR Emmanuel Sanders and 83 OVR Tevin Coleman. The value of these cards, combined with the 30k, amounted to close to $100k from 11 wins. Not bad.

Following these tips can easily allow you to take that next step into Gold 2 to enjoy similar rewards.

MUT – Power Up System Review

The release of 90 rated TOTW Derek Carr unlocked the power up card’s tier 4 set and answered weeks worth of speculation on how the power up system would progress. Carr’s 91 rated Tier 4 card is without a doubt one of the best in the game. However, the card costs more than a pretty penny and is NAT. Based on the cost, power up sets are sure to go down in MUT history as a failed experiment.

MUT Weekend League – Overall Team Ratings from Week 1

MUT’s first weekend league is now in the books. Competitors will be spending the week bolstering their rosters for a chance to improve their record or maintain perfection during week 2.

With that being said, it is helpful to analyze how good everyone’s rosters were in week 1. To get a better idea of how highly teams were rated, I recorded my opponent’s PS4 rosters and averaged out a team overall. Despite the recent ‘kickers matter movement’ in MUT 18, I’ve excluded them from the overall calculation.

The following positions were considered: QB, HB1, HB2, FB, WR1-4, TE1, TE2, LT, LG, C, RG, RT, LE, RE, DT1, DT2, LOLB, MLB, ROLB, CB1-4, FS, SS. The overalls were tallied and divided by the number of positions to come up with a team overall.

MUT – Sniping Golds and Investing for Team Leader Sets

Sniping golds could pay massive dividends in the near future. Smart investors are anticipating the release of Team Leader sets and loading up their binders with gold player items. Team Leader’s are important for two reasons: (1) some of them have fairly high rated cards; and (2) the MUT Master objectives require 8 completed Team Leader sets.

How do you complete Team Leader sets? Right now it is all speculation. Initial reports were that you would need to submit ANY 20 gold players of the team. However, based on how the silver market has changed, I wouldn’t be surprised if the sets had OVR restrictions on what cards you can submit.

As of right now, golds can be found at bargain prices on the AH. For the purposes of this post, a low gold is a 70-74 and a high gold is a 75-79. The question becomes, what should be targeted and how can you get the snipe?

Based on the current market, cards with any significant value are rated 85+ OVR. According to YouTube teasers, the following Team Leaders surpass the 85 threshold:
