Kickoff Madden Season with MUT Master Ryan Shazier

The launch of Madden NFL 19 is right around the corner, but we couldn’t wait to share some news for Madden Ultimate Team.

Grinding for MUT Master is one of the longer journeys you get to tackle every year at launch. It’s exciting to share your own personal progress with your friends while you chase down the highest OVR available.

Another aspect that makes MUT Master so intriguing is who you’re actually grinding for. This year, we are thrilled to announce that Pittsburgh Steelers’ MLB Ryan Shazier will be your MUT Master. Shazier has always been a favorite in the MUT community, and we are still in awe over the courage and strength Ryan demonstrates on a daily basis (and congratulations on the new baby announcement, Ryan).

This year we built upon MUT Master from a year ago. It will again be done through an Objectives List, but there are some notable changes. The first change comes from the fact that MUT Master will be an upgradable player, and you’ll receive his “base” version pretty early on in your MUT experience. From there, start knocking out the remaining Objective Tasks and most of those will reward you a MUT Master Upgrade Token. Put those Tokens into Shazier’s upgrade path to start improving him. The tasks you’ll need to complete to earn MUT Master Upgrade Tokens include:

  • Win 20 Games (Solos, Solo Battles, Seasons, MUT Champs, or Salary Cap Ranked) with a team OVR that is Less Than 70 to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Win 40 Games (Solos, Solo Battles, Seasons, MUT Champs, or Salary Cap Ranked) with a team OVR that is Less Than 80 to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Win 50 Games (Solos, Solo Battles, Seasons, MUT Champs, or Salary Cap Ranked) with a team OVR that is greater than or equal to 80 to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Win 100 Games (Solos, Solo Battles, Seasons, MUT Champs, or Salary Cap Ranked) with a team OVR that is Greater Than or Equal To 85 to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Complete 25 Daily Objective Lists to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Throw for 40,000 passing yards in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Throw for 80,000 passing yards in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Throw for 400 passing touchdowns in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Throw for 800 passing touchdowns in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Run for 12,000 rushing yards in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Run for 25,000 rushing yards in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Run for 200 rushing touchdowns in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Run for 400 rushing touchdowns in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Intercept 100 passes in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Intercept 250 passes in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Record 1,000 tackles in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Record 2,500 tackles in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Record 50 forced fumbles in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Record 125 forced fumbles in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Record 200 sacks in any non play-a-friend mode to earn one MUT Master Upgrade Token.
  • Record 400 sacks in any non play-a-friend mode to earn 1 one MUT Master Upgrade Token.

There are 10 other Objective Tasks, and that’s where the second major change is this year. In the past, players have felt like they were forced to play MUT a certain way just to obtain MUT Master. Sometimes, those are experiences that are just not suited for your individual play style, so we wanted to offer some choice. This year, you will have the option to either beat 500 individual Solos or 125 Multiplayer games in order to fully max out MUT Master Shazier. And, of course, if you decide to do both and complete the entire list, there’s an additional 500,000 Coins waiting for you.

The final 10 Objective Tasks are broken into five Solo and five Multiplayer. You’ll notice that there is a four Solo to one Multiplayer win ratio and that each level of wins gives you the same collectible needed to finish the last five upgrade tiers for MUT Master. While, yes, you will have five extra collectibles if you do everything, it does provide the flexibility to earn Shazier the way that makes the most sense for you. Last thing to note is that you will likely earn these collectibles before finishing the rest of the Objectives List. These collectibles can only be used when all of the previous upgrade tiers (which require the MUT Master Upgrade Token) are completed. The final Objective Tasks include:

  • Win 40 unique solo challenges or solo battle games to earn the MUT Master Chemistry Ability Token.
  • Win 80 unique Solo Challenges or Solo Battle games to earn the MUT Master Image Token.
  • Win 160 unique Solo Challenges or Solo Battle games to earn the MUT Master Border Token.
  • Win 240 unique Solo Challenges or Solo Battle games to earn the MUT Master 92 OVR Token.
  • Win 500 unique Solo Challenges or Solo Battle games to earn the MUT Master 95 OVR Token.
  • Win 10 multiplayer games (Seasons, Squads, MUT Champs, MUT Draft, Salary Cap) to earn the MUT Master Chemistry Ability Token.
  • Win 20 multiplayer games (Seasons, Squads, MUT Champs, MUT Draft, Salary Cap) to earn the MUT Master Image Token.
  • Win 40 multiplayer games (Seasons, Squads, MUT Champs, MUT Draft, Salary Cap) to earn the MUT Master Border Token.
  • Win 60 multiplayer games (Seasons, Squads, MUT Champs, MUT Draft, Salary Cap) to earn the MUT Master 92 OVR Token.
  • Win 125 multiplayer games (Seasons, Squads, MUT Champs, MUT Draft, Salary Cap) to earn the MUT Master 95 OVR Token.

Finally, the entire time you are grinding for MUT Master, you also have the opportunity to earn additional Coins by recording stats while using any OVR version of MUT Master Shazier. This is a second Objectives List and those tasks breakdown like this (note that you’ll receive an additional 250,000 Coins for completing the entire MUT Master Stats Objective List):

  • Record 45 interceptions using MUT Master Ryan Shazier to earn 20,000 Coins.
  • Record 750 return yards from interceptions using MUT Master Ryan Shazier to earn 10,000 Coins.
  • Record 125 tackles for loss using MUT Master Ryan Shazier to earn 35,000 Coins.
