3 Madden Ultimate Team online auction tips

madden-ultimate-team-auction


I'm hoping to share some of my Madden online tips for Madden Ultimate Team in the next few weeks. In this post I'm going to go over some things I've learned about the Auction.

1. Selling contract cards

Perhaps one of the simplest ways to earn coins is to go to Weekly Deals and buy contract cards and then sell them for a higher price. When Madden Ultimate Team first came out this method was quite profitable. One of the reasons for this may have been that most users were unaware they were able to buy contract cards whenever they want to in the weekly Deals section. For PS3 users, go to the Weekly Deals section and use L1 to view the other screens.

When I first used this method I would start out by buying two silver contract cards for 250 coins and then put a starting selling bid price for 350-400 coins with a buyout price of 500. I would set the length of the auction to 1 hour to ensure more users will see it. This method will work but it depends on when you auction it during the week. Last Saturday, I was selling contract cards like crazy. the weekend seems to be the best time to do this. During the daytime on a weekday, however, selling contract cards for about 350 coins is not as profitable as it used to be. During the weekday, I would recommend a starting bid price of about 280 coins with a buyout of 450.

2. Weekly Deals

When a new weekly deal comes out such as Texans WR Andre Johnson and 49ers LB Patrick Willis you may be able to find some good deals from the same positions (WR, MLB). The reason for this is that users might be trying to dump some of their players in order to grab a rare weekly deal.

3. Buy low and sell high

I just recently started using the auction to search for players that I may be able to sell for a higher price. The auction sorts searches by time left so you can sometimes find some good deals that have about 1-2 minutes left.

I've been going through separate searches by position to help filter my search. I've noticed wide receivers are very difficult to get for a good price. Good deals for corner backs, Free safeties, and Strong safeties are also a bit sparse but every once in a while you might find a good deal.

  1. How do you auction a card? I'm in the auction section but do not see a way to auction a card. The only options I have are to buy auction items... Thanks!

  3. If I bid on a card and lose the bidding, do I loose my coins or get them back? I just bidded on WR, lost the bid and lost 7,000 coins. Is this a glitch cuz auctions dont take everyone money, just top bidder.

  7. This frickin auction block is a frickin joke...I can't complete a collection I have invested coins in because there are some cards that aren't ever available and i can never win the bid because there is a 1000 people that want it. I even bought $50.00 in coins starting out... what a fuking joke. I am returning this stupid fuking game right now

  9. i am a madden ultimate team fan but there are two things i would like changed. one when someone quits you shouldnt lose contracts and gain 1000 coins from the one that quit also the one that quits should have two contracts taken from each player. the other thing is that ea needs to stop ripping people off and putting buy outs at 0 and not putting those certain cards in packs that we buy. thanks for your time

  10. Im guessing if you cant handle Madden Ultimate Team coins then you cant handle real money,...thus if you have bad credit in real life then dont play madden ultimate team as you will be a negative poster like the others here that have responded very negatively blaming the game, blaming other people....when really they should blame themselves for being poor players

  11. How do i put a card up for bid only and take off the buy it now price?

  12. I didn't give any money to buy coins...I am sitting at 1.4m...Make your money in the auctions...As soon as you have 10k (which is easy just play all madden and lower the cpu states in options when you are actually playing the game) This will give you on average 800-1000 coins...Then take your coins and start searching different players....Every week there are players that are normally at 15-20k minimum buy it now and you want to look for one to pop up at 10k buy it now...You just made 5k now do it again...Buying packs can make you money... Always auction jersey/stadium/coach for 1 hr at minimum buy it now...NO do not try to get 9k you wont...The reason you are selling it for just 1 hr is you want to be on the front page where most people buy their cards...With the other cards put them in your collection...It isn't hard trust me

  17. Yea, push buttons people. Explore the menus you learn by messing up. I traded q primetime for a John elway 1986 legend. I should of got 3 elways. So use you tube, Google stuff. It's all on the web.
    Know what you have and how much u can get for it.
    Completeing a collection...check every card you get in a pack, send to pending collection.
    Know what collection it goes to and insert it. It will be easy from there. I got to the point where after buying so many packs I would get to 11/15 of a collection. Buy the remaining guys, for 40k then make 60k. There are other ways but....learn from mistakes and take advantage, its a video game!
