It’s no surprise that Madden Ultimate Team is back for another year in Madden 15. This mode, which started way back in UEFA Champions League 2006-07 has become a required feature in all of EA’s annualized sports titles.

If you are brand new to Madden Ultimate Team (MUT), it’s essentially a trading card game, fantasy football, and Madden all rolled into one crazy-addicting mess. Open virtual packs, build a team, and ten play. Your results, along with other tasks, earn you coins to buy more packs. It's a continuous cycle that gives you the thrill of having the chance to pull that card. Of course, there’s the option to spend real money on those virtual packs as well.

This year, the process has been streamlined and the single-player offline mode has been given a lot more content. But, as always, the impulse to buy new packs and upgrade your team is at the core of MUT.

Madden 15 tips don’t always have to be so difficult. In our latest technique, we show you how you can stifle those pesky Mesh concepts that are running rampant online, by making one easy adjustment before the snap.

The Mesh concept is brutally effective at punishing players that like to play man coverage, but it’s also pretty darn good against most zones, too. However, there is hope! With a little bit of ingenuity we’ve discovered a fairly universal technique for defenses with four-down linemen that will slow down the effectiveness of the Mesh, if not shut it down entirely.
