MUT OVR Tiers

At the start of the season, EA promised to lower the OVR rating of cards and lowered the elite threshold from 85 to 80. With the addition of TL exchange sets and Flashbacks, a flood of 86+ rated cards have entered the market. Recent developments have made the new elite threshold 85 OVR, the same as previous years. The remainder of the post looks at player card OVRs  and ranks them into 5 tiers.

MUT Predictor Picks – Clam’s Crystal Ball Week 3

Off the top I’m Chris, a.k.a Clammers, here to help make all the correct predictions for the week. I appear on a podcast known as 4th Take which takes you around the NFL’s hot takes and gambling picks for the week. All stats you’ll see referenced here can either be found on Footballoutsiders.com , espn.com, or in your heart so you know they’re true.

Ravens win by 4+ (True): Through two games, Ravens defenders have combined to catch as many passes (10) as any WR on the team, but they’re 2-0 and play another brutal passing attack in the Jags. A “home” game from Jacksonville, it won’t matter, Ravens with a 3rd routine win.  Continue reading “MUT Predictor Picks – Clam’s Crystal Ball Week 3”

MUT Weekend League – Overall Team Ratings from Week 2

After week 2 of the MUT Champions Weekend League, I recorded my opponent’s PS4 rosters and averaged out a team overall. The overalls are compared against my week 1 calculations.

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.

Again, there are flaws associated with calculating an overall based on the average of these positions. I should have calculated two MLB’s in 3-4 sets etc. I did not make the change for the sake of keeping it consistent with the previous week. Despite the flaws, I’m confident that this basic calculation does  continue to shed some light on a roster’s overall quality.

Here were some of the key findings from week 2:

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 – 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:

Turbo’s MUT RTG – Week 1

Week Recap

After a full week of Madden, the Turbo_T96ers are an 82 overall. After managing to go 3-0 in a set of qualifiers, the 96ers will be competing in Madden’s first ever weekend league.

The first week of Madden was primarily focused on grinding out solos with hopes of qualifying for the weekend league. I did spend a few extra dollars but only on the points only level packs. These exclusive packs are unlocked once you reach a certain MUT Level.

The week 1 post will cover the free cards in my lineup, my initial strategy, my current roster and strategy for the weekend league and beyond.
