Last year, our friend and EA Game Changer Codexavellum earned the very first MUT Master Sean Taylor, so we figured he'd be the perfect resource to help you start your MUT 19 journey on the right foot. In the article below, he outlines the strategies that he plans on using to win the race to MUT Master for the second year in a row. If you'd like to thank him for putting together this tutorial, make sure to follow him on Twitter @codexavellum.
EA has introduced a whole new Player Upgrade system into MUT 19, so getting your hands on that 95 OVR MUT Master Ryan Shazier is going to be a little different than past years, but not too different.
First, you will want to play all the opening solos inside of Ultimate Team to get yourself up to Level 10. If you are a returning user, you will be able skip to level 10 and still receive the rewards. Once you reach Level 10, all you will need to do is score a touchdown to unlock the "base" Version of Ryan Shazier (70 Overall).
After you get the base Ryan Shazier, there will be a few Objective Lists that you can complete to earn MUT Master Upgrade Tokens. These tokens allow you to upgrade Shazier so he will improve with you as you continue to complete the Objective lists. The Objectives seem pretty crazy at first, but you will quickly see that they aren't so bad (just a lot of time!).
Before you start playing all those Solo Challenges and getting those Objectives finished, make sure that you first put that base Ryan Shazier into your lineup. There will be some Objectives tied to Ryan Shazier himself, such as Tackles, INTs, Sacks, etc. that will allow you to gain an additional 250,000 coins. You can check your progress towards these objectives in the "Objectives and MUT Level" menu inside Ultimate Team.
I highly recommend starting with the Campaign Solo Challenges because they have some really good rewards. You might notice that some of the solos are difficult or frustrating to complete, and you will fail some solo challenges (trust me, I fail them too), but you just have to keep pushing through. You will be able earn an all Gold Team and (2x) 87 OVR NAT Players by the end. After the Campaign Solos, I would recommend moving into the Gauntlet Solos and then onto the Diamond Solos.
If you are struggling to get past some of the Solos, my first tip would be to be careful with your coins, but not too careful. Go ahead and buy some players off of the Auction House if you need to. Better cards in MUT make your life easier, so don't be afraid to look at spending some of those coins to Upgrade your QB, HB, at least (1x) WR, and CB. Look at High Gold / Low Overall Elite players for the best value.
Another tip would be to using the full game solos to gather loads of yardage. Full game solos usually are pretty long anyway, so you might as well make the most of it and start piling up some yards and touchdowns.
After you knock out all the Objectives needed to get the 95 Ryan Shazier, you also will also have the ability to earn 500,000 more coins by going for 125 multiplayer wins.
The most important thing to remember is that this is a grind. Keep the end goal in mind and you will be just fine! Good luck on becoming the next MUT Master!
