DC - Fast track to a 92 Manny

Prev1345
So, I am an old fart (43) with a full time job, wife and a couple kids. I wish I had many hours to grind out 100 games in Draft Champions for a sweet 92 Manny Malhotra card. I gave up on that dream pretty early on until I stumbled a cross this little trick. Bit of a long post but worth it if you haven't tried this.

Position lock > Coach on Solo play is your friend.

Many of you avid players may laugh at me but I didn't know you could position lock to coach and have the CPU play games for you. I thought this, because you can't select the position lock coach (CO) option from the start up screen, you have to do it in game. I have been drafting stud teams from the Best of the WC, Movember or All star alumni. On All Star difficulty setting, a team with 91+ OVR played by the CPU/Coach will win 8/10 games. I have been just keeping my PS4 fired up while the kids are watching Paw Patrol and setting my phone timer for 10 minutes as a reminder to press 'X' to start the next period. I even get the chance once in a awhile to jump in late in the third if my team is losing to try and come from behind. It is actually pretty fun and you rack up games in no time. I would even find myself getting caught up watching some of the games to see if my guys would hang on for the win. After the kids go to bed I would jump in and play a few games on my own.

It took me 8 days to reach my first 100 DC collectibles.

I don't know how else to get to position lock in game so the only way I could figure it out was once the game boots up, turn off your controller. Once you turn it back on, you have to select your team and can press the L3 until you reach the 'CO' option then you are good to go.

NOTE : For whatever reason, any time I drafted Brett Hull to one of my teams, after I position lock to coach and start the game, if freezes saying 'waiting for user'. No idea why. Now I just avoid using Brett Hull and haven't had any problems.

Hope this helps, Manny is an absolute beast of a card.

    I don't see CO as an option. I see C, LW, RW, LD, RD, G. Nevermind I see it now. id expect that exploit to be fixed pretty quick.
  • Well there you have it, this series is now confirmed complete garbage. You can actually just watch your team play? Amazing.
  • I can confirm this works which is rather unfortunate. I tested out this method to see whether it worked tonight.
  • So can you do this in online HUT or DC? In case you cant, I don't see this being a problem. I personally wouldn't do this kind of farming for Malhotra, sounds actually more tedious to do than just normally play games on DC to me.
  • Ok I may be missing something but what exactly is the significance of the draft champions players. Like why do malholtra and emery have them

    Malhotra has all around great stats, Emery has good synergy. Their stats are just way over the top. 92 Manny is almost as much of a joke as 99 Scott was last year. I can understand that 88 card, but 92 is just ridiculous. Better than most Legends. Guy never had 40 point season in NHL, I don't see why they had to make his offensive stats so high. Don't know why they decided that these exact players should have these cards.
  • Nice exploit u found there lol, good for u. Personally ive played 4-5 games and though its pretty fun the actual rewards dont motivate me that much. Malhotra 92? Cmon.. I hope they bring some more atractive players, some cool FB cards would be great
  • or should I go to lock players a full match ?

    Oh I was just wondering why they chose those guys

  • To the guy who said who cares about Manny Malhotra.. his card is absolutely amazing. 91 skating, 93 shooting, 91 hands, 92 checking, 92 defense AND he has 97 faceoffs. I wasn't gonna get him eventually, but dude is a stud and a half.
  • What's his synergy?
  • Faceoff Master and Wicked Wrister.. both 1 point. Faceoff Master is useless.. but he is deadly for faceoffs and can snipe and is fast and can hit. He can do it all. I didn't think he'd be worth it until I seen his attributes. He centers my 3rd line and still 6th on my team in points that is stacked top to bottom.
  • He has 1 less point for me than Ovie who's on my 1st line.. he's deadly. If you pair fast wingers with him.. tie up and you are gone.
  • This strategy does work, but fast track wouldn't be proper term. Easier and more relaxing track, for sure. But rage quits speed up the process online.
  • Are DC rewards tradeable? I see none on the market.
  • Nope, non tradeable.

    That 92 Emery card is tempting just for the +2 on Team Wheels and +2 Its a Trap.

    With him as the back up, Cujo starting with +2 wheels and a +3 coach that just leaves +1 needed for the synergy.
  • The problem is only the one player in your lineup will have the TW perk. The entire lineup does not get the perk.
  • TW is a team synergy. The whole team gets the boost when it is active.
