Better late than never!
I’ve been having a blast with the new Ultimate Team in Madden 15 but there’s one aspect of it that is still a little confusing. That is the Coin-Up challenges.
Here is how they work. Coin-Up challenges are solo challenges. Under the play menu, you go to solo challenges and go to the weekly challenges. It’s important that these are weekly based on the way they work.
When you beat it, you get coins but you also get a collectible for one of the teams competing in a real life NFL game this week. For example, in the first week there was a challenge for the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks. When you won you got a collectible for the Packers.
If you think that team will win the real life NFL game, then you’re done, just keep that card. If you think that the other team will win, then you have a little more work.
In the sets under the weekly section, there is a collection that takes the one card you have and if you collect it you get a card for the other team. In our example, I thought the the Seahawks would win so I collected the Packers card I had into the collection and got the Seahawks card.
A day or so after the real life NFL game is over, EA will update the card so that you can quicksell it for a ton of coins, and that’s it.
You can get a lot of coins for the Coin-Up challenges but you have to make sure you do it each week before they expire.
It’s that time of year again, Madden season! As has been the case for a number of years, the Madden Ultimate Team Mode is totally my favorite. It’s a crazy mode and it’s getting a bunch more attention every year. But what is this ridiculous mode and how do I do it without spending money?
In addition to trying to improve your team, there are sets or collections for you to complete. Completing sets gets you coins and bonus cards. There are sets for different teams, uniforms, playbooks, coaches etc. They usually add more sets throughout the year. This year they made many of the common collections repeatable. Before once you did it you were done, so you had no use for those cards, but not so this year. Beware that when you collect a card to a set, it is gone forever.
It’s that time of year again!
The new Madden comes out. Some people scoff at buying the same game every year but shut up, I have fun!
This year I am picking it up for XBox One, so we’ll see how that works out.
As has been the case for a number of years, I’m really looking forward to the Ultimate Team mode. For those of you who don’t know, it’s basically a virtual CCG(like Hearthstone) where the cards are players, coaches, playbooks, uniforms, etc and the game you play with the team you assemble is Madden.
I haven’t done much research but I hear they have made organizing the cards less of a nightmare, fingers crossed.
I’ll be playing tonight on stream so check me out at twitch.tv/theeclecticgamer
Skins in League of Legends are an interesting animal. They’re the only thing in the game that you can only buy with real money. That means you have to be careful about what you buy.
I do buy a lot of skins, because they make the game more enjoyable for me, but I try to keep it to one skin per champion. That means you have to know which one is the best, so I’m here to tell you.
Check out the full list here.
Now it’s time for another Jungler.
The Best Pantheon Skin
You’re in luck folks, the base Pantheon skin is the best. He’s a Spartan badass, you can’t really improve on it. Save the RP.
The Rest of the PantheonSkins
You can check out all the skins here.
Myrmidon Pantheon is pretty good for the same reason as the base skin.
Ruthless Pantheon just looks lame, though his resemblance to an action figure is funny.
Perseus Pantheon is pretty cool depending on your taste for classical mythology.
Full Metal Pantheon does look pretty cool, but I still prefer the classic look.
I don’t like Glaive Warrior Pantheon, because why is he throwing a glaive?
Dragon Slayer Pantheon is new and kind of cool, but it’s just too much.
That’s Pantheon but who would you like to see next? Let me know in the comments or tell me what you think of Pantheon’s skins.
