There's no one to blame. Here's the reality. Madden doesn't have everything you want this year. It's not going to have everything you want next year. And it won't the year after that. No video game is perfect and will always need improvement.

We can totally blame the showrunners for prioritizing story mode over more CFM work. In fact we need to do that if we want more CFM work done; the squeaky wheel has gotten the grease for a long time. In a respectful way, of course. The individual devs don't get to decide what they spend time on so yelling at them doesn't help.

I agree with that cliche, but, that cliche has been thrown around here for the past decade and we still have a arcade style CFM.

People can shout and yell from the tallest buildings and EA will still make the game that they want to make.

Yeah, it's a defeatist attitude, but history has a tendency to predict the future.

Uh no that's not the way it works actually. The people to blame are the creative directors I believe as they control the direction and allocate resources accordingly. Your basic EA grunt working on Madden is basically just following orders and working on whatever they're told to.

If there's no logic behind the draft board it kinda makes it pointless. I mean if you have two RB's list one and two most of the time you aren't going to draft back to back RB's. It would seem like this was thrown in last minute to me, I might be wrong but I would almost rather it not be included than half baked.

I think it's a struggle between marketing, the suits and the developers.

Every place has a hierarchy and the developers are probably in the middle somewhere.

I'm hoping AJ will be able to confirm this.

Re: Madden 18 Franchise PSA (Shopmaster)

I'm okay with CFM getting no major features this year as long as the gameplay is solid, I can live with it.

However, if they can patch in or add things like this during the season in a "cfm patch", that would be amazing.

I want the ability to choose a playbook for the CPU just like they patched in the uniform selections last year [without the whole other profile hack] . Also, I don't know if this is even possible without a major cfm code re-work, but, if they can make EVERY game playable in OWNER mode without actually being the owner of team [32 team control] it would really help for offline cfm league immersion by watching the cpu's battle in the playoffs or superbowl if you don't make it, instead of simming it all and looking at boxscores. Would be a nice change.

Why are we spending time breaking down a "who to blame" list?

Does it really matter or make you (not you specifically) feel better to have a specific target to go after?
