INTRODUCTION

Welcome to another Madden's game, this one was very close to be released with a lock out but luckly for the fans the problems was solved. This year the graphics only improves a bit compared with its predecesor, there are a few pixel-glitches and some people may have some issues with frozen troubles, but if general the game is very well done, and if you like to play Online, you must have a very strong connection because the servers disconnect a bit often, so, take it in mind. Speaking by the trophies, like past years, this time isn't the exception and, you can get the (P) in no time, there is an issue with the Ultimate Team which will cause you a glitch and making this (P) TEMPORALY-UNATTAINABLE if you have the glitch, but there will be some answers and tips about it and will be solved in the incomming future.

 

So, let's play some FOOTBALL!!

 

Step 1. Edit Sliders:

Ok, the first step must be edit the sliders to help you to gain the trophies faster & easiest, to do this go to My Madden Option in the Main Menu, go to My Settings, select Game Option and select Penalties, change the default values to ZERO in all the Penalties.

Now go to Player Skill and move ALL the sliders to 100, after this select CPU Skill and move ALL the sliders to ZERO. Select now Special Teams and select ONLY the 2 FG sliders to 100, there is no option to select the CPU Skill or User Skill in this Special Teams Option, but this will help you with the "Dan Carpenter Award" trophy.

 

Now click Select and SAVE ALL the changes.

 

Note: This step is optional for those guys that want the (P) faster, but if you decide take a bit more risk and challenge you can skip this step and play with the Default Sliders.

 

Step 2. Milestone & Players Trophies:

Start with the milestone & players trophies related selecting games with 5 mins per quarter trying to make a bunch of trophies in a single game. In this step I sugest focus in this trophies BUT leave the INT & returning punts and Kickoff related trophies for the second step just because for this trophies you will need some help if you want them fast.

 

Step 3. INT's & Punt Return TD's:

Now that you have all the players and milestone related trophies, it's time to tackle the INT & returning TD trophies. You will need a budy online or a brother/user using another controller to help you with this trophies, is faster and less paintfull if you try by yourself.

 

Step 4. Franchise & Training:

By now you will have around 75-80% of the trophies and now its time to do the Franchise and Training stuffs, this step will take you like a half hour and you will missing only the MUT trophies.

 

Step 5. MUT:

MUT. This trophies are online and you need to simulate at less 18 games playing minimum 2 of them meanwhile you are trying to get coins for increase your team up 80 for the gold trophy. In this step you will be dealing with contracts, possibles injuries that will allow you or not to continue playing UT games.

 

Step 6. Mop Up:

If by this step you are missing some players related or milestone trophies is time to clear them.

 

Once you complete them its time to look at your trophy list and you will see a new plat in your collection, yes, another easy plat for the Madden series... Congratulations! :dance:

Now select the Packers as your team, and play vs Lions or Cardinals. When you have the ball try to go out of bound EXACTLY between your own 1 yard line, make sure at the middle-top of the screen shows the 1 yd line because if you are in the 2 yd line it won't count. Pick any pass formation including Greg Jennings (WR) in the formation, see him in the field and memorize his button and try to catch the ball with him and score all the way!. Also you can do this easilier with a friend or with two controlls. If you miss it or if you are tackled just rinse and repeat.

Ultimate Team Related Trophies

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/969/32.jpgThis One is Easy (B)

Create a MUT team

 

Glitched. Well, this one is pretty much easy BUT is glitched. If you import an old UT like previous years you may not be able to get this one until some patch comes, so please take this in mind before you import ANY existing UT. If you do not have any previous UT just make one and the trophy should pop.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/969/33.jpgThis One is Hard (G)

Build an 80 rated MUT team

 

It Pops Automatic. Ok, this one isn't hard, but you need to be ready to follow 1 of 2 ways to do this one:

1: let me be completelly honest, if you want this trophy right away, you need to buy coins and buy the Super Stars Packages wich costs 9,000 each one. This will help you increasing your roster and you will reach the 80 mark very quickly, note that you ONLY need to reach the 80 rating score NOT the chemistry!.

2: if you do not have money in the wallet or you do not want to spend it in coins you need to find a friend to trade cards with or visit the Thread Forum for some buddies.

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/969/34.jpgWheel and Deal (B)

Make a MUT Trade

 

It Pops Automatic. Well, first of all, you need to have more cards that the ones you receive when you create your UT for the first time, I mean you CAN'T trade your original cards. When you buy 1 package (1,000 coins the cheapest) you will have the option of start any MUT Trade. Now, once you can buy a package and you have a cards to trade, you need to go first to "My Cards" menu and select the desire card(s) to trade, select them and send them to the trade blocks. You need to wait for some guy interested and once the trade is finish a screen will show telling you the trade was accepted and the trophy should pop. Also you can do it with a friend for gain some time.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/969/35.jpgUltimate Veteran (B)

Complete 10 MUT Games

 

It Pops in Menus. See "MUT Maniac" trophy for more information.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/969/36.jpgMUT Maniac (G)

Complete 20 MUT Games

 

It Pops in Menus. If you want this two trophies fast you can select play vs CPU, 1 minute per quarter and start the game, after the coin toss and after the kick-off (doesnt matter if you kick or receive) in the first play select screen select pause, go to coach options, and you will see Supersim, select it and type triangle, now pick the option End game, the entire game will be simulate and you will earn like 1 or 2 coins, now repeat this steps until you reach the 9th AND 19th game played, in the 10th AND the 20th game, select again 1 minute per quarter but this time DO NOT USE the simulate option, just complete the game, trying to score a quick TD/FG and running out the clock. Once the game ends, go back to the UT menu and the trophies should pop.

 

Warning: Some people are reporting that this 2 trophies don't pop property, to solve this matter here is a tip provided by kooit

 

Turn off your ps3. When you turn it back on and sign in to your MUT it should pop. I supersimmed for my trophies. I didn't get them until I shut off my system and restarted it.
