Madden NFL 18: Tips for Longshot, Ultimate Team and Franchise
Whether quick play, franchise or campaign: Madden 18 makes every football fan happy. In our video we introduce MUT, Campaign and the franchise mode and finally reveal tips that always work.
Whoever sits in front of a football game and explains to his friends at every intermission exactly what the coach could have done better, needs Madden 18. Thanks to the different modes, football fans get exactly what they want from a sports game.
Gameplay with a lot of arrows
Accordingly, Madden 18 is not a purely action-oriented game like FIFA 18, but requires a bit more thought and brains. With every turn pausing and alternative tactics outweighed each other, you can almost talk about turn-based strategy.
Of course, the Line of Scrimmage is still very much in the game. All the more important that you know what you are doing at Madden 18. But do not worry, if you have not seen more than a few games on TV so far, Madden 18 will give you a whole bunch of exercises and tutorials where you can learn the terms, recognize moves, and develop a general feel for the player and ball.
Long Shot, Ultimate Team or Franchise?
If you feel fit, you can venture into the other modes: For example, to Quick Play, where you can simply jump into the game. Have your favorite team play against your friends or play the matches of the current week. Maybe the Arizona Cardinals are doing better with you than in their “real” season. Pairings, as well as player roster, are updated every week in Madden 18.
In franchise you play your own off the real season. Choose an existing team or create your own and bring your team to the top of the NFL as coach, owner or player in offense. In doing so you can skim even more experience points and credits with your own goals.
For the first time in Madden’s series history, Madden 18 also includes a story mode. “Longshot,” as its name says, tells the story of Devin Wade, who has to make the hard way from high school sports to NFL superstar. Along the way, he is repeatedly confronted with decisions that influence the course of the action.
This can be small details, such as public opinion for a charming interview or career-critical considerations such as firing or keeping a sneaky manager going.
And of course, Madden 18, like FIFA, also has an Ultimate Team mode. Madden Ultimate Team works like an auction house, where players are bought and put together like trading cards. You have a free hand as far as club affiliation or active career is concerned. So Rob Gronkowski could easily play with Dan Marino.
With your Ultimate Team, you can then compete in solo challenges in which to master particularly tricky situations on the field. So you win new players and credits, which in turn you can bid on particularly good players.
