Re: 1987 Roster Madden 18

I can't thank you enough for this. I'm having a blast using all my heroes when I was a kid:

Whoops, wrong game!

So much fun using these rosters, brings back so many memories! I remember wanting to wear my William Perry jersey every single day.

Re: 1987 Roster Madden 18

Roster Updated!!!!

NFC West: Redskins, Cowboys, Cardinals, Eagles and Giants now complete!

I also fixed a couple of things on other teams and adjusted the pursuit rating for DL and LBs. This does not really affect their OVR or their in game ability. However, it has a drastic effect on simmed games and number of sacks.

Please check out the new teams and let you know if you see anything wrong.

Note: The Redskins; yes Doug Williams was the QB for the Super Bowl and Timmy Smith was the RB for the Super Bowl. However, Jay Schroeder was the QB for most of the season. Timmy Smith barely played until just before the playoffs and that was only due to injury. I do not have him rated too high because after the 87 season he was useless. He could not maintain the level of play and then combined with off-field issues he was out of football.

Re: 1987 Roster Madden 18

Percussion, I am wondering your thoughts on the Madden game this year, since I know we are both looking for the same things out of a football game. Do you feel it is a step backward like most I read and hear seem to think? The same as Madden 17? Or a step forward? Thanks!

Well, I will say this to start... I think M18 is overall a better game than M17.

First, the graphics are better, this includes classic uniforms. Most, but not all, of the teams' classic uniforms have been fixed. The lost stripes on long sleeves is mostly gone. That makes me very happy.

I have had limited actual play game time due to roster creation, but I feel like the game plays better as well. QBs move around better than M17, blocking is better in both the run and the pass. Defensively is better as well, though I think there will be additional patches to continue to tighten up zones. Though with my rosters, zones are already a little tighter.

I am a huge fan of the off ball injuries. That alone, if nothing else was changed from M17 would make me play M18. I understand that people want the injuries to be displayed more than just mentioned on screen, but I will take it this year. I have not used them much, but the coach adjustments are a nice added bonus as well.

From the VERY limited amount of testing in Franchise, not much seems different for me. The sim stats are largely the same but I can work with the situation, I think. I will know more once I do more testing.

What I am not happy about:
The removal of generic playbooks to create playbooks from. This makes no sense to me at all. It is not a big deal, but it is frustrating.
More with playbooks... we still cannot assign the CPU a custom playbook in Franchise mode. This is what keeps me away from the mode for my classic rosters. I am forced to use the crappy rosters EA has. While I can assign a playbook to each team, I am unable to really make teams play the right way. I am forced to see formations that were not used in the 1980s. Also, EA did not do a good job of rating the plays in the playbooks. There are some ok workarounds that help, but it is still not perfect. Far from it actually.

Currently, while editing there are some problems. You cannot see passing and kicking motions in editing. They all look the same. This needs patched ASAP! Also, I have had problems in Play Now using custom playbooks with the game crashing. I use two profiles and set up the CPU to use a custom playbook. Far too often the game crashes. I think I have fixed the issue, but I am not 100% sure. The custom playbook must have all of the audibles set. This was NOT an issue in previous years.

QB play, in terms of running QBs is still not what it should be. QBs do scramble, but do not take off enough. When I am playing against Randall Cunningham, I want him to run a lot. He led the Eagles in rushing for multiple years. However, in Madden, though I gave him really good ratings to run, he moves around the pocket and then runs towards he line of scrimmage and throws the ball across is body way too much.

So, again, overall I think M18 is a step in the right direction. I think it is better than M17. Now, I am basing that on a limited amount of game time, so it is possible I could run into additional issues. But, right now I am pretty happy with the game and my ability to make it work for me.

Sorry for the really long message.

Percussion, what were your plans for the Jags and the Panthers? I guess you could throw in the Ravens as well. Sorry if I missed it if it was on a previous page. But I don't recall seeing it.

For the teams that did not exist, I am going to use scab players who played during the strike. I will also do the same with some free agents.

Re: 1987 Roster Madden 18

Awesome roster idea & can't wait!

Consider recently retired players from 1985 and 1986 for the expansion teams like the Jaguars, Panthers.... Just lower their ratings, make them somewhat entertaining to play with.

1985 - Riggins, Theismann, Lynn Dickey, John Jefferson, Stabler, Earl Campbell, Cliff Branch, Richard Todd...

1986 - Jim Plunkett, Bartkowski, Ferragamo, Wendell Tyler, Mike Pruitt, Tony Hill...

==============

Also, I'm thinking of taking your rosters & expanding them to best teams from 1984 or 1985 to 1989 or 1990. My favorite era of football.
