How to Get Elite Tokens in Madden 18 -- And What They’re For
If you want to get the best players, coaches, stadiums, and uniforms in Madden 18’s MUT mode, you’re going to need Elite Tokens. It’s going to take some work and some serious coin spending to get everything you want, however, so read on to find out what Elite Tokens are, what you can use them for, and how you can get them.
What Are Elite Tokens and What Are They Used For?
Elite Tokens are currently the highest tier of Team Tokens, above Silver and Gold. Unlike Silver and Gold Team Tokens, Elite Tokens are not team specific and can be universally used for all Elite tier upgrades in the game.
Elite Tokens are the main consumables that you’ll need when upgrading your team’s uniforms, coaches, and stadiums to tier 3. Upgrading any of these teams’ sets gives players of that team a boost in Team Training Chemistry, which improves the performance of those players.
For example, if you have a few Steelers players in your squad, then upgrading Mike Tomlin or Heinz Field will be beneficial to those players. But if you don’t have any Steelers players, then it would be pointless to do so.
In order to upgrade any of these to tier 3, you’ll need to have the tier 2 version of the card you want to upgrade as well as 3 Elite Tokens.
How Do You Get Elite Tokens in Madden 18?
In the Upgrade Sets menu, you’ll find the Team Tokens section which lays out exactly how to get Team Silver, Team Gold, and Elite Tokens. This is what you need to trade in for Elite Tokens:
- 1x 84-85 OVR Elite Player
- 2x 82-83 OVR Elite Players
- 2x 80-81 OVR Elite Players
- Any Silver Team Token
- Any Gold Team Token
As you can see, Elite Tokens do not come cheap. 84-85 rated Elites sell for over 20,000 coins, 82-83 rated Elite players are usually in the region of 10-20,000, and 80-81s are on the lower end, selling for a couple thousand coins. That’s already a lot of coins, and that’s without taking the Silver and Gold Team Tokens into account.
In order to get a Silver Token you need to trade in:
- 5x 65-69 OVR Silver Players
- 5x 60-64 OVR Silver Players
They'll also all need to be for the team specific, so by trading in 10 of the correct Silver Cowboys players for example, you'll receive a Cowboys Silver Token.
Same goes for Gold Tokens too, but you'll obviously need to trade in higher rated players. Gold Tokens require:
- 5x 75-79 OVR Gold Players
- 5x 70-74 OVR Gold Players
This means that in order to get your hands on just 1 Elite Token you'll need to trade in 25 players of varying quality, which can cost a whole load of coins. I recommend waiting until players are cheaper before attempting to buy players for this purpose, and also buying the cheapest players possible.
That's how to get Elite Tokens in Madden 18. If there's another method that I've missed, let me know in the comments section below.
