True accumulated more MCS games played than any other competitor in history (66).

About True

Known for his elite stickwork and ability to juke, spin, and hurdle his way around his opponents, True advanced all the way to the semifinals of the 2018 Ultimate League on the heels of one of the best ground games in Madden 18. Heading into last season’s Club Championship, True had made five consecutive EA Major Live Events dating back to Madden 17. He placed top-five in the MCS 2017 Madden Classic, Bowl, and Challenge, and won $5K with a 25th-place finish in that year’s Championship. True was a mainstay atop the MCS 2018 leaderboard as well, with top-10 finishes in the Classic and Challenge. Over the last two MCS campaigns, True was the sixth-highest money earner in competitive Madden. His versatility when it came to playbooks and game planning is what kept True locked-in as one of the perennial top competitors in the scene.

“I love to play against opponents that run the meta on offense because I know what to expect and know multiple counters to what people like to do. It’s what makes me a great defensive mind.”

True's Playstyle

True had arguably the best stick skills in the competitive Madden scene. He said in an interview that it was no fun to play with bigger power HBs like Derrick Henry, because all you do is truck stick. He preferred the intricate skill sets of elusive backs like Todd Gurley, who he dominated with during the Madden 18 Ultimate League.
