Hey Madden Ultimate Team Community,

Our teams have been listening to the community feedback around MUT Drafts after the start of Season 2 and we are going to make some changes. Starting at 11:00AM ET later today (Wednesday, December 12th), these changes will go live in game.

The goal of these changes is to improve the overall user experience in the MUT Draft mode while balancing the mode for better competitive play.

Here is a list of changes going live later today:
  • Revamped Legend Round: The three selection slots in the Legend round will now consistently supply one of the following options:
    1. Slot 1: Secondary Player Selection (SS, FS, DB)
    2. Slot 2: One of the following positions: LB, HB, QB or DL
    3. Slot 3: WR or TE Selection
  • Removed Players: We removed some lower tier players from the draft that would often feel unappealing when picking them. This should help make each round feel as if you are drafting a significant player who can truly help your team.
  • Added New Players & Programs: The following programs have been added to the draft pool with this update: Blitz Players, Football Outsiders, and various other players from previous programs.
  • Moved O-Line Legends into normal Draft pool: All O-Line Legend players have been moved out of the Legend round and placed into the normal draft pool. This should help improve the balance in the trenches. Previously we received feedback that there were a lot better pass rushers in the draft than there were pass blockers. This should help remedy that feedback.
  • Revamped WR Round: We have revamped the "All WR round" in the draft to ensure it is providing elite type receivers. This will help ensure users get at least one good WR option in the draft.
  • Revamped Secondary Rounds: We have revamped the "All Secondary & All DB Round" in the draft to ensure each of those rounds is providing elite secondary players. This will help ensure users are getting at least two good secondary options in the draft.

We will continue to update MUT Drafts with new content and improve and balance the mode going forward. Thank you again for your feedback in helping make MUT Drafts better.
