With more information than ever, the cards have been cleaned up so that archetypes, X-Factors, Abilities, and Chemistries are clear and obvious to everyone.

Ability Caps

The newest strategy to Madden 21 is all about Ability points, which in Ultimate Team means there is an Ability Cap!

ABILITY POINTS: Managing these will be crucial to creating the best lineup

Rather than having to choose who to assign Abilities to, you’ll be able to break up the Abilities and assign more than three players on each side of the ball. To balance out, each Ability will cost points and you’ll have an Ability Cap for how much you can spend across your lineup.

So you can stack loads of Abilities on one player, or you could give every receiver different ones and keep your opponent guessing.

For example, for an Improvisor QB Redzone Deadeye is 1AP but Escape Artist is 3 AP. Hot Route Master is 2 AP for a Field General, but 4 AP for a Scrambling QB…

X-Factors will cost 0 AP though, so don’t sweat those!

At launch the Ability Cap will be 10, but this could easily get balanced during the year.

Fifth ability slot for 99 OVR

This won’t come into play until later in the MUT cycle, but 99 OVR players will now have a fifth Ability slot.
