EA has completed a large-scale update of the franchise at the beginning of this month. What players know now is that the value-added modifiers for players and rookies in the first year of the contract have increased. The development team has also improved the logic. They no longer apply the first-year bonus to players who have only signed a one-year contract. Previously, all players who signed a one-year contract would receive a value bonus, which only applied to players with long-term contracts. It may also mean that the value of MUT 21 Coins corresponding to those players will decrease.
Each player position will receive a new custom age value curve, and as the player ages in the franchise, the player’s value can update. As players age, the greater the impact of age on their value in the market. This allows developers to replicate the impact of the decline in transaction value on older participants and provides a way for the CPU team to devalue these MUT 21 Coins on a large scale. Each position has a different tuning. They also made some specific adjustments to the value of the quarterback, involving drafting options and CPU trading. Age and overall score affect the team’s current QB status and team philosophy to a large extent.
For example, now there is a QB with a total rating of 86 in the franchise who wants to trade. They want to ensure that 90-93 in other locations traded at this level of more valuable and rare commodities. For beginners in their twenties, all positions have a high percentage of age values, but just like in actual life, QB is usually more valuable than similarly skilled players in other positions at any age. Combined with the basic value change mentioned above, this makes the young high OVR entry QB extremely valuable, and according to OVR, age, development characteristics and other factors, they invest an enormous amount of capital to get top Cheap MUT 21 Coins.
This is easily the most influential and powerful update to date, but honestly, this is not the best part of EA’s information release. The most encouraging message may be that the franchise in Madden 22 may perform even better. EA has been repeatedly working on the franchise model for the past 12 months, which once again raised expectations for this feature. Players will also need to buy some cheap MUT 21 Coins at GameMS in advance, which is a very prescient approach.
