Ultimate Legends

Okay so for those of you who don't know what I am talking about I will go over what Ultimate Legends are first.

An Ultimate legend is a two star version of a certain player which Madden has chosen as a legendary player. These cards are fairly difficult to obtain, and either cost a lot of money, or take a lot of time and effort to get. To get the Ultimate Legend of Steve Young for Instance, you need to obtain his 3/4 Legend cards from legends packs, or obtain them on the auction house. Following that you must get the Joe Montana card in the solo challenges which requires beating an elite team. And last but not least you must receive the Key Card for steve young, by collecting 35 members of a team for the collection pertaining to Steve young. That seems like a lot of work, and it is, but to receive a two star Steve young may make it worth it for you.

An Ultimate legend obviously is going to a be a GREAT asset to your team. This card especially a QB, will make you a very big threat to any team. You will obviously still need other players in addition to the 1 Ultimate Legend, but that player still gives you a great chance of being able to outplay your opponent.

Now lets get to the ways to get them.

How to get your Ultimate Legend

Now the EASIEST way to receive an ultimate legend is obviously to just buy all the needed players, and complete the solo challenge pertaining to your player, but that will be very costly (upwards of 400,000) coins to buy the needed requirements to fill those positions. So lets talk about how to complete them a little easier.

First off, attack them slowly. The Ultimate Legend that I am closest to receiving at the time of writing this guide is the Steve Young ultimate legend. This card requires a lot, BUT I already have all the required parts, I just need the Key card obtained by completing a team collection. Now that is going to be very difficult, so in all honesty, when I get back on Madden tonight I will probably just buy the Key card to save time, BUT it can be done by going through and and getting each of the required players.

Now my honest suggestion as far as making money, and getting your ultimate legend, is to slowly take stabs at it. Whenever you get gold cards your not using, place them in collections, and start attacking those collections. Your goal should be to try to get most of them completed as best as you can.

Also if you are going to buy the players on auction house, i suggest waiting a couple weeks until the prices drop a bit. The auction house is a little high right now because players think they can make 1,000,000 off a 82 no name linebacker, so give it a couple weeks and prices will drop where you can make money on these packs. Also if you do obtain a Key card that you KNOW you don't need, and aren't completing that Ultimate Legend, then sell that player on the auction house for 100,000 coins. You should have no problem getting that since these players are highly sought after.

Remember that you should take your time when you are attempting to get an Ultimate Legend, and that it is no rush, and you have plenty of time. it will get very frustrating if you try to do it in 1 night, trust me. So I think that you should take stabs at getting your player, and overall just try to make money, and save the players that you need, and build the collection.

Over time you will eventually start getting the players you need, and want, and when you do, you will be very excited. So remember not to rush anything. Remember that if you get players from solo challenges, not to sell them but to add them to collections.

I do not know The collections pertaining to certain Ultimate Legends, which is another reason why if that is the only card you need, I think it may be easier for you to just buy the player, rather than trying to find them on the collections, and after all that effort getting the wrong player.


So overall you can either Buy your ultimate legend, or you can slowly stab at the collections, and go piece by piece to get them. While there are some players who are close to getting them, and have them ;), you don't need to be in a rush to get that player. Overall you should take your time so you don't get to frustrated at the game, and slowly just take stabs at getting the players you want. This also works for building that team. That you should not buy packs to try and get a good running back, but instead buy that 1 player on the auction house to ensure you get the best card out there.

Once again, thanks for reading, and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to comment below and voice your opinion. thanks.

To be honest seaside I think it is completely random. because you get a key pack, which you open, and get a card. I had to purchase the steve young key card for 26,000 coins, but it was worth it.

@will... You will have to just make up for that bad decision, and just work on getting coins. Or buy card packs, but there is no way to reset your ultimate team unless you create a new gamertag, and get a new madden code..

@will try deleting your saves from your hard drive

May work, but not sure.

I'm pretty sure MUT is server side, which means deleting saves will not change anything. The only thing that will get rid of would be his offline connected career league if he had one

I bought a Walter Payton card on auctions and I cannot find it in active, inactive, anywhere. Would you have any idea where it went?

Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

if you won the auction he should appear in the active cards... NO other place... Unless (maybe) if it was full he may be in reserve bank, just filter to legendary cards... because if you have more than 100 players in reserves he will not show up, so filter to legendary cards...

Can you reset your team completely and start from scratch with a new captain?

No sadly this feature has not been added, BUT I ave been in contact with some people at EA and they said this will probably be a feature on the next game due to the large number of people asking for it including myself.

Sadly with these collections usually the rare players tend to have this happen.. I would say if he's that important save up and buy him..

Question... Do you get your coins back when someone outbids you for a card?

Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Yes, you will get your coins back if someone outbids you, and you do not bid again.. Although usually they will not be awarded until after the auction ends, and can take a couple hours for them to get back..
