Madden NFL Superstars Collections: Everything you need to know

Card Collections
Finally, Elite Cards have made their way to Madden NFL Superstars. But if you want to get the best of the best, you'll have to collect the rest. Unfortunately, Elite Players can only be unlocked after completing a Tier Three or Four team in the new Collections. Don't worry, it's 100 percent worth it. These special Player Cards all have a personal rating of 99, will boost your team's overall rating by three points or more and never expire. (And you'll need all the help you can get in Pro League II.)

In other words, you might want to start buying those Player Packs--but not before reading our guide on how Collections work after the break.

Elite Players
The new Collection feature is where to get the best players, but you'll need to have at least eight friends access to all four NFL Player Books. Essentially, these collections work much like collections in other social games like FrontierVille and Cafe World's new Collection Cabinet, but we're dealing with items that directly affect your performance here. So, it would be in your best judgment to choose which players you trade in wisely.

My Collection
The collections your aiming to complete are actually the NFL's 32 teams' rosters with your own Player Cards found in Player Packs. Not to mention some of which are only available in Gold and Ultimate Packs. Our advice is to only trade in extra or weaker players that you're absolutely sure you won't be using until you become more savvy to potential gains versus losses. While it will take longer to complete a particular team's roster this way, you'll have a much smaller chance of shooting yourself in the foot, so to speak.

Philadelphia EaglesThe first two NFL Player Books only reward sums of 50 thousand coins or higher for completing each team's roster, but would be an ideal place to start to get a feel for how the system works. It's not until you reach Player Books #3 and #4 that you'll have access to the stars of the show: the Elites. Completing a Tier Three or Four Collection for Elite Player Cards--like, say, the Minnesota Vikings' Randy Moss or the Cincinnati Bengals' Chad Ochocinco--will also reward players handsomely with coin rewards of up to an insane 1 million coins.

Unfortunately, there are no Playfish Cash shortcuts to completing the Collections, but that might be a good thing for those who suffer from the infamous Burning Wallet Syndrome. Just remember, when you turn in a Player Card that there's no turning back. Choose your trade-ins wisely and you'll be well on your way to the best players Madden NFL Superstars has to offer.
