The Pro Bowl is almost here and Madden Overdrive will be running a week-long program that will allow you to earn some of the best players in the NFL. The team read a lot of community feedback after Ultimate Freeze and have designed the Pro Bowl with a lot of that feedback in mind. The program will start this Sunday 1/20 and run through 1/28.

Currencies

The Pro Bowl will use three main currencies/collectibles:



Pro Bowl Ballots:
  • These will be the stamina currency.
  • Earn 10 of these by playing a free event. That event will refresh 3x per day.
  • You will be able to exchange 20,000 coins for 5 Pro Bowl Ballots (6-hour cooldown).
  • You will be able to exchange 1,000 Blitz tokens for 10 Pro Bowl Ballots (3-hour cooldown).

Boxes of Votes:
  • You will earn Boxes of Votes by playing one of the five Pro Bowl Challenge events or the Pro Bowl Veteran Blitz event. These events will have a first win bonus and a repeat reward.
  • All of the Pro Bowl events will refresh 3x per day (10:30 am, 4:30 pm, 10:30 pm EST).
  • Trade in 250 Boxes of Votes for an 87+ OVR Pro Bowl player.
  • This will be a select pack that gives you the choice of one AFC or NFC player. There will be a small chance to get a Diamond player in this set.

AFC/NFC Helmets:
  • Helmets can be earned by exchanging Elite/Diamond Pro Bowl Players. You will be able to trade in Helmets for Pro Bowl Heroes.
  • Elite Players exchange for 1 Helmet of the player’s conference.
  • Diamond Players exchange for 2 Helmets of the player’s conference.


Heroes and Veterans

Heroes:
  • There will be 6 Pro Bowl Heroes (96 OVR) that will be available throughout the program. There will be a new hero available each day through 1/25.
  • Obtaining a Hero will require you to trade in 3 AFC Helmets and 3 NFC Helmets.

Veterans:
  • There will be 9 Pro Bowl Veterans (96 OVR) that will each be available for a limited time in the store for Madden Cash.
  • There will be a very small chance to pull one of these players from the Veterans Blitz Event.



There will be two offers available for purchase in the store that will allow you to boost your rewards throughout the Pro Bowl program:


Pro Bowl Boost Pack:

$1.99 offer that includes:
  • 80 OVR Player that boosts the number of Ballots earned by 20%
  • 25 boxes of votes
  • 2x Gold+ base player (small chance of a Pro Bowl player)
  • 5 Pro Bowl Ballots
  • The 80 OVR card will exchange for 10 pro bowl ballots and NOT a Helmet.


Pro Bowl Starter Pack:

$19.99 offer that includes:
  • Pro Bowl VIP Event - This is basically an extra Pro Bowl Challenge event that refreshes 3x per day.
  • 125 Boxes of Votes
  • Elite+ base player (small chance of a Pro Bowl player)


The Pro Bowl will lead directly into the Superbowl program. I will have more info on the Superbowl coming next week for you all! Hope you enjoy the program!

  • If yall really listened to players each new player wouldnt cost 10000 mcs. Just saying. Game is really too expensive for not having any way to get or earn madden cash in game play. Look at now, 60000 coins for 5oo mc for 1000 blitz tokens. Each promo blitz tokens. Only way to play is through overdrive which takes a ton of time. For people with jobs there isnt enough time in the day.
  • Also the 1 percent chances are awful. 5 percent boom or bust is wayyyyy better. A might isnt a good chance when you throw money on it.
  • so basically we need 1500 vote boxes to get one pro bowl hero. And EA is giving us around 5 votes per event times 6 events... which is about 30 vote boxes times 3 sets of events per day which is 90 times that by 7 days of the pro bowl im assuming which equals to about 640 vote boxes.

    WAY TO CATER TO THE PEOPLE THAT BUY MADDEN CASH EA!! 👍

    There's definitely plenty scope to spend on this one, no denying there, but as I understand it if you grind out the 500 votes for 2 select packs, you can then trade in the player helmets to get a 90+ as F2P.

    You can also get extra ballots to grind out more BOV, if you're into that. A player ran the numbers over on MUThead if you missed it: Link

    yeah the elite and diamond cards are reachable and that's not a problem. im talking about the upper level cards which are the heroes. those are usually always out of reach for people who don't spend money.

    And I clicked on that Muthead link and you do realize he's including spending 640,000 coins and 64,000 blitz tokens. So in order to accomplish what he's saying you need to be on every single event that comes out and NOT ONLY THAT but you also need to find a way to get coins if you don't have it AND get blitz tokens because you'll obviously run out which means that you have to either spend coins to get them or play MORE regular events like overdrive or season games or playoff events to get mics (in order to use the mics on blitz tokens but that has a 12 hour refresh) to get more blitz tokens.

    but the problem is you can't expect people to be on madden 24 hours a day because they have school or jobs or other life events that are normally going on. I get that they don't wanna make the game too simple but the amount of layers a person has to go thru to get the upper echelon cards is getting to be ridiculous.
    BALLOTS to play events to get VOTE BOXES to trade for ELITE CARDS to trade for HELMETS to trade for DIAMONDS then trade elites and diamonds for HEROES. it's never ending

    And why is there a VIP (very important person) event only for those who spend money? That just looks like discrimination against the people that don't

    **on a side note...EA did make it reachable for the ultimate freeze masters. but they made that too reachable because they left the event on so long that every player on madden has them. leaving it on a decent time is reasonable but that event went over way too long. it was like that ridiculous 4th of July event they left on last season for 2 months**

  • Yeah I agree. These events have ridiculously too many layers.

    I won't be doing this one...
  • Jatilmon has the right idea about skipping it.
    The playoff masters are 95 ovr cards... only one less ovr than the pro bowl heroes and no layers to go thru... just play the event and get the collectibles. Yeah the pro bowl heroes have boosts but only for other pro bowl players and let's be honest... someone whos not paying for the game will be lucky to get even one hero so the boost wouldn't make a difference
  • These players dont even help your team. Kittle was the best one. The rest are nothing that help anything but probowl players only
