Madden Ultimate League Week 11 – What to Watch

Matt Franciscovich – Madden Ultimate League

Tune in every Saturday to watch the first-ever Madden Ultimate League (MUL) season streaming on various digital channels, including Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Mixer. The season culminates with the playoffs and finals from the NFL draft in April, live on ESPN2.

This is it. It’s the final week of regular season gameplay for the Elite Conference. We’re just one stream away from the Madden Ultimate League postseason. A couple of important things remain unsorted, including which two competitors will earn a coveted first-round playoff bye in their quest for the MUL championship title. In the running for the byes right now are Abbott “Blocky” Lopez and Hassan “GOS” Spall in Division A, and Shay “Young Kiv” Kivlen and Michael “Skimbo” Skimbo in Division B. (Catch up on the latest standings update here.) Now, before we go full-force into the playoffs and get caught up in what is shaping up to be the biggest and best Madden Bowl yet, let’s look ahead to Week 11.


Which competitors will earn a coveted first-round playoff bye?

In the Legend Conference, Drini “Drini” Gjoka and Eric “Problem” Wright dominated the regular season and earned themselves byes. But which competitorsweek11 from the Elite Conference will join them? Heading into the final week, in Division A, its Blocky and GOS in the running. In Division B, Young Kiv and Skimbo each have six wins. Of course, there’s a possibility that each division’s top competitors finish with the same record, in which case a tiebreaker scenario determines the higher seed. First, it’s head-to-head matchup record followed by best point differential. In Division A, Blocky swept the regular season series against GOS, defeating him twice. To make things interesting in Division B, Skimbo’s final regular season matchup comes against Young Kiv. The Seattle youngster, Young Kiv, defeated the two-time MCS champion, Skimbo, way back in Week 1, 20-17.

Can Blocky finish strong?

Blocky is in good shape to earn that bye mentioned above, but he still has to beat either Joel “JoelCP” Crooms-Porter or Michael “Noble Prodigy” Scott this week. Blocky defeated both competitors back in Weeks 1 and 2 and averaged 32.5 points per game in those wins. A strong finish for the 2018 Miami Dolphins Club Champion would supply him with a confidence boost heading into the postseason. Blocky started hot, going 4-0, but has since gone 1-3 in his last four contests.

Who’s in and who’s out?

Following last week’s stream, Taylor “Spotmeplzzz” Robertson and Noble Prodigy are the two Elite Conference competitors looking like they won’t advance to the playoffs, each the owner of just two wins thus far. But hey, every regular season win is worth a thousand bucks, so these guys still have some incentive to play spoiler. Spotmeplzzz will take on Young Kiv and Stephen “Noble SteveyJ” Javaruski while Noble Prodigy will face Blocky in his final regular season matchup.
