Re: Future Classic Rosters?

A couple people have discussed the All-decade or All-time type of rosters. While I appreciate those types of rosters, and play them occasionally, it is not really something I am really interested in creating.

I much prefer to do the single season type of rosters. I like to be able to play through an entire season and keep stats and see how close things play out to real life.

If I move to making only Play Now rosters would anyone be concerned about player age and experience? I figure that sense there is not franchise retirement and such to deal with, it really should not matter. But what do you all think?

I am also considering the following:
Let's day I make a specific year roster, I will take my current 1985 roster for instance. I could then use that roster to make 1986 and create the rookies and either put them on the teams that drafted them, or put them in Free agency and then you could "draft" as you see fit. Thoughts?
I think this would be a way we could keep seasons going without Franchise mode. You would have total control over who retires as well if you wanted and could adjust the draft and trades as you see fit. Trades in season would require you to save a new version of the roster for your personal play, but it is not difficult as I have done it in the past. Thoughts?

Re: Future Classic Rosters?

I do not care about age or experience. Since I only use Play Now it is not relevant for me aside from an annoying disconnect in a few cut scenes. I have gotten to the point where I turn off announcing so I don't hear them talk about years of experience either. For me, I have no issue if neither is spot on.

I like the idea of a pick up and play roster with the players that performed for the teams for that given year. I would not be interested in a draft mode type of set up, but I could see how others possibly would.

One thing I struggle with a bit when doing the rosters is where do I draw the line for inclusion for a player. Many players only play 1 or 2 games and then get hurt or traded. I usually leave these players off the roster unless it is for a position where the team is short on players to fulfill the Madden required position count. Usually Guards and Tackles, or occasionally Defensive Ends. One thing I do hate is there will be a player...usually a WR/SE who maybe had 7 catches all year. He'll get that in one game in Madden no matter where he is positioned...WR or Slot.

By the way, watched 4 games today with your new play books. Excellent work! Loved seeing the teams come out in the I or strong/weak I formations a majority of the time. Love the 2 man backfield. The def playbook is very good too. One game elicited 8 sacks, but the others were more in line with between 3-6.

I have not been too successful in getting the QBs to go long very often. This is especially evident when watching 2 AFC teams from the 70 roster. Raiders and Chargers, among others, used to really air it out. Most of the completions are to the TEs or short passes to the RBs. I'd love to know how to get them to throw deep...even if it is on first down. 4verts or Hail Mary in the Gameplan setup for all downs?

I have Zero concern regarding a players age nor experience while play in Play Now mode.

Age/experience is not an issue here.

I’m in the same boat as you as far as single season rosters being the most interesting. I occasionally play with all decade sets in Madden and MLB, but I find the rosters I go back to the most are single season ones. There is just something about replaying games or a season with accurate rosters from that time that intrigues me. I always find players that I either forgot about or have never heard of before and it is a learning experience all alone.

Age/experience would not bother me either. I might take rosters to franchise, but I only play one season with all teams user controlled anyway so I just run it as basically a play now season mode since Madden doesn’t have one. If you use 1985 as a base you could either go backwards to 1984 or forwards to 1986 like you said. The only things you’d have to do is get rid of the players that retired the season prior. You could just throw them to free agency since this is only meant for play now or you could edit them and convert them into rookies for the season you’re doing.

You could perhaps release two versions of the rosters. One with accurate season transactions and the rookies on their real teams and then one that is a pre-draft roster where the roster is what it was like before that year’s draft and the rookies are free agents so we can draft them ourselves. Or you could just do one roster with all the rookies added and leave the transactions for the community to do. If we all chipped in a little bit we could probably get multiple seasons done that way. I’m a bit busy , but I’d probably be up for something as simple as making sure all the players that changed their j numbers when they moved teams have their right jersey numbers.

Anyway, that’s just some food for thought for now

Re: Future Classic Rosters?

Well i'll say this...

the names i'm seeing in this thread I consider true pioneers in creating not on rosters but a whole entirely different level to these games over the years. my dude brown33 on the xbox one side has single handily created almost 40 years of football over the years. just for madden 15 & 16.

i mean i can remember when Capa almost did the same and his team for 2k5, Percussion's well his work speaks for itself, for the past 16-19 he has provided major seasonal rosters to these games.

There have been definitely a few others that have stood out on the cause for trying to give us all a great fun experience in these games. Armor&Sword & Josh stand out to me when it comes to sliders as well as Tdawg. so for those i dont mention dont take it personal but these are guys i consider the best because they have been there answering mine & other's questions within the community, making mine & others gaming experience fun, and most of all taking countless hours out of there personal lives to make another person have a better day, or put a smile on that person face as they relive there gaming moments.

SALUTE.

Well for me concerning Madden 20?

yeah i been sitting back behind the scenes watching, yeah there bringing out a lot of mechanics, that technically should have been in the game long ago.

can i justify another purchase, I dont think so, not this time.

for me to buy madden 20, there going to have to really bring back and allow things ive wanted since 2004. and personally in one years time i just dont think they have it in them to make that kind of game.

for years we have been asking for so much, doing all the little things, we've lost so much within this own community, yet alone as a whole within the entire site of OS. Dev managers, QA Testers, Game Changers, Content Creators, I mean people are just tired.

I feel like where at that generational tear where games went one way and we as gamers went another, and we were never able to meet back in the middle on common ground. all over....

$$$. let that sit a minute in ya mind.

look at the modes in games these days opposed to the past, yes we cant live in the past, but we also should not forget it, nor how we got here in the first place. Oldschool paved the way for these company's and games out now and look where where at i feel we should be so further ahead than we are and its sad that's it not.

Percussions, Don, Capa & others thats within the community thats willing to give some blood sweat & tears, i'm saying this to you...

personally i say we roll with 19 all the way, and i mean all the way, for me theres 3 roster set seasons i've always wanted but never seen surface in football.

Thats 1972, 1996 & 1998.

What I'm good at?

creating players, equipment edits, proper bio information, ratings i suck at. and i'm keeping it completely honest when i say i'm willing to help madden 19 into the ultimate classic football edition.

i mean like a serious edition that we all can call our last stand edition until ea either decides to finally make the game we want or sadly we all just hang up our controllers for good.

smh i dunno guys its gone take real dedication which i know at least the names i've already spoken about no doubt have.

dont get me wrong i understand i was introduced to madden in 1992. and now here madden 19 i feel like i honestly could not play another edition, granted its not perfect but its still good enough for me at this point. i'm tired of spending money on promises and hype only to get it and it takes the entire year to patch in or basic fixes that should be there.

i purchased a second controller for this game and now i have access to playbooks and even custom play books and classic uniforms that i didn't have by using one controller. sad thing? "It use to be in the game"...


I think were all tired of the same ol same ol, and granted there hyping this madden 20 up to the fullest, i'm just not seeing it anymore, im not feeling it, ima let the younger generation have that now, we been there and done it.

so yall have my support, i stand on Madden 19 Officially.

lets make it a Classic in our own way to enjoy not just now but show'em how Oldschool really can get down!

Feeling Like Rock in V

"Yo EA...One Mo Round We Aint Heard No Bell".

Yall let me know Peace.

Storm.

Re: Future Classic Rosters?

StormsWarning - I think you are on point with your comments ....... I've never been a huge contributor to Madden rosters (as I am first & foremost a baseball guy & a '60s one at that!) -- but recently -- I've had the pleasure of interacting with tommycoa on his masterpiece All-Time-Greats which assante brought to life & kinda have been swept into it all .....

tommycoa is now working on some individual team sets dating all the way back to the late '50s and his plans are extensive to say the least .......

I think my dream '60s & '70s individual teams set is on the horizon because of tommycoa's dedication, determination & expertise .....

All that said above - is on the xBox One ---- BUT I have firm belief with solid reason to Believe .......... tommycoa will soon be also joining the PS4 team of modders for Madden 19 ......... it maybe a few months down the road but it is coming & once he's on board combined with all these masterful classic roster makers already on the PS4's Madden 19 bandwagon then utopia may be at hand !!!

The sky is a beautiful blue at the moment !!!

Oh, as a bit of spice, tommycoa also knows a lot about Baseball too !

I agree, and that sounds awesome Don, Asan and Tommy no doubt have been huge as well, and would welcomed additions I'm sure, we gone need everyone for this one!������

Edit .

So on a side note I just tryed doing this 2 controllers method in franchise, and when I use custom books. To watch CPU vs CPU the game decides to jumble everyone at the 50 yard line...glitch fest infinity..

So now ima do custom everything the heck with stats, in this broken cfm crap...

Edit..

Ty Tommy. Your Sliders for Play Now Are The Truth.

No more glitches and as far as your gameplay setup I can see a difference immediately!

Besides not being able to change coaches, I'll print out the real schedule for the years I have.

And now I had draft classes saved from 1986 through 2010 but after seeing this it's no need. I'm starting 1996. And I'll just do play now from here on out.

I've hit my point break. That's it. PM if yall want help, but lock me in on 96 to start. Designed for playnow.


edit JUST LOOK AT THIS....

man im boiling right now smh...





this was the last straw for me...
