Madden 25 Ultimate Team

It’s August and you know what that means.  No, not Gencon, it’s time for a new Madden.  I know Gencon is also in August but I couldn’t go, so it’s dead to me.
Whilst I wallow in sadness over the-con-which-must-not-be-named I can also salivate over what probably must be considered my favorite video game.  Sorry Mass Effect.  More importantly, I can look forward to the new Ultimate Team.

I haven’t done any research into the changes this year since I know I’m getting it anyway but Ultimate Team has gotten better every year since it was created, and I loved almost everything about it last year.  I did hear somewhere that there will be an emphasis on team chemistry again, which was cool.

The one thing in really hoping for is making the collections easier to deal with.  I hope you can collect a card directly into a collection from your archive, and I hope you can see what collections a card is in from the archive.  I’m a programmer, I know it’s not that hard if you have years to plan for it, which they have had.

Other than that, I’m just excited about playing it with new cards and the next iteration.  Every year you get bonuses for having played it last year, so if you want to get s head start, pick up a used copy of last year’s Madden on the cheap and collect those cards.

For those of you not familiar with Ultimate Team, it’s basically a virtual CCG where the cards are your players and you play Madden with the players you have cards for to earn more coins to buy more card packs or in auctions from other players.  Of course you can pay real money for more packs, but if you’re smart you don’t have to.

Play it!
