Madden Ultimate Team

So, as it turns out, there is a limit of five Ultimate Teams per console on Madden. After making five, and every time running into the same issues with not having enough coins to sustain a team, I went to make a sixth with a new strategy.

I received a message that said the limit was five per console, and it looks like there is no way around it. I went through two online customer support chats trying to figure out a solution to no avail.

Has anyone run into this? Any advice?

I've had the same problem. When I played enough games I just didn't have enough coins left to get enough contract cards to resign all of my good/decent players, so I ended up having to replace those players with mostly crappy players I got from various packs I bought with the coins I did accumulate from playing UT games head to head. (I think contract cards are way too overpriced to buy them separately)

I guess the main problem is that you won't really get much enjoyment out of this mode unless you are willing to dish out real money to buy coins or buy legendary packs. If you spend enough of your own money to buy an assload of coins, you don't have to worry about contracts because you have so many players stockpiled from all the packs you got. I honestly don't see a viable way of keeping everyone you want to keep unless you use your own money. That, or you are just patient enough to accumulate enough coins through playing normal online games.

I'll probably wait until my birthday to buy a few legendary packs to help me out.

Another problem with this mode is that if your team overall skill is 85 or higher, its likely that you will be matched up with people that have a pooload of legendary players on offense that you wont be able to stop unless you have legendary players on defense... and most people I play seem to be rediculously good as well, so this mode is usually too frustrating for me to play for long.

First I completed a bunch of collections to get a bunch of coins. I never had a problem running out.

That's what I was going to do with my new team. Completing collections is the easiest way to get a lot of coins. I've gone back and started to try and complete some sets with an old Ultimate Team, but it would be a lot easier to start from scratch again.

i havent played lately but i approach it as a business. when you get a card thats worth 10k value, sell it and buy a 9k pack...sometimes you repost several times. do 1hr auctions as it keeps your card on top and first to see is first bought most of the time. good luck.

Finally finished my first collection. 27,000 coins and Walter Payton ain't too shabby. Unfortunately, Chad Henne is the only QB I landed out of the packs I bought so far. Hopefully I can get someone better soon.

I'm still trying to figure out why I never got the Madden achievement for creating a MUT. But I have the one for making an 80 overall rated MUT.

Yes. Easily the best mode on Madden in my opinion.

My friend hooked me up with a superstar team but I only played once. Horrible. Only reason I played was because I wanted to be LT and Dan Marino.

I miss playing regular franchise with Madden cards on previous generations.

Madden 2002 was one of the all time worst Maddens, but I loved it because you could make your own expansion team in place of the Texans. Although it was a very simplified version, I really liked building the entire team from the ground up. But I cheapened it up by using Madden cards - I remember having Dan Marino and Richard Dent on my expansion team.
