There are two additional ways to obtain elite players on release day:
You are eligible to receive up to 25 legend cards when you link your Amazon Prime account with twitch. It is indicated that registered users should return on August 22nd to receive their first Legend. It is believe that these rewards will come in the form of loot crates that are received by linking your EA account with Twitch Prime.
Once you register to compete in the Madden 18 Championship Series, you are then able to choose your team for the Madden Club Championship. You are given an additional Team Elite (80 OVR) from your team of choice plus an alternate jersey. You are able to view each club’s respective elite and jersey selection while you are registering.
