How To Change Your Favorite Team in Madden 18

Feeling guilty for betraying your truly favorite team in Madden 18? Not to worry! It's easy to change your favorites, and it helps build your play skills too.

The Madden games aren't known for loading each new game with tons of new content. When you've got so much to choose from already and can experience most of it with your favorite teams, that's not really necessary, though. But what if you want to change out your favorite team to experiment with playbooks, or you rushed in without really thinking about team loyalty? Never fear! Changing out your favorite team in Madden 18 is almost easier than blinking.

Changing Your Favorite Team

In the game's main menu, scroll over to the Customize tab, select Settings, choose Settings again, followed by Game Options, and then at the top of that screen, you can scroll left or right to choose your new favorite team. Simple as that.

Great! Now What?

There's the obvious benefit of being able to play as a new team, changing up your routines and just enjoying the game and its story mode even more. But it also gives you a chance to learn how to use different playbooks, since some are team-specific, and to experiment with your playstyle. Apart from giving you a greater edge in Head-to-Head matches, it means you'll have the skills to effectively coordinate your Madden Ultimate Team (MUT) when you get around to that.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
