GRIND: It will take a lot of work to earn every UL player

As with any program, solo challenges release to give you the chance to play with and against the new content, and earn it through rewards.

UT is no different and its solo set is among the best in the game in terms of rewards.

There are currently three threads, one for each release of UTs so far, and there are 24 total challenges so far.

  • Release 1: 16 Challenges, 16 Items/Players, up to 38,400 coins and 64 Stars
  • Release 2: Four Challenges, four Items/Players, up to 9,600 coins and 16 Stars
  • Release 3: Four Challenges, four Items/Players, up to 9,600 coins and 16 Stars

FREEBIE: This program gives one of the best rewards yet

However, the very first challenge in each thread is the most important. Called Ultimate Legends Kickoff, it is a full game against the UL team, and winning (for just one Star) awards an Ultimate Legends Token.

If you earn 16 of these tokens you can exchange them for a random Career Edition UL player.

That’s right, all you need to do for a 96-97 OVR UL player is win 16 games on Rookie difficulty and Arcade mode.

There is, however, a catch. You need to beat the Ultimate Legend Kickoff challenge by 10am ET  (7am PT/3pm GMT) on February 19, as these challenges will expire then.

There are currently six tokens available.
