I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think this assumption is wrong. I’m in the first week of the 2016 preseason with the Colts. I’ve traded for Deon Bucanon, Jeremy Hill, Bradley Roby, Jaylon Smith, and Danielle Hunter. I can’t see a Progression History for any of the players, yet they already have XP. Bucanon has 300 XP and normal dev trait, Hill has 200 XP and quick dev trait, Roby has 0 XP and normal dev trait, Smith has 400 XP and quick dev trait, and Hunter has 300 with normal dev trait. To me, these numbers prove certain things. Bucanon and Hunter got a gold training plus focus (200+100). Hill either got a gold or he got a focus, not both, since each equals 200. Roby got no medal and no focus, and so has zero XP. Smith has 400, which means he got a gold training plus a focus, which since he has quick dev, is 200+200.
Or what you can do is sim a week and start looking at cpu players. That's what I did. Quite a few weeks actually. This will tell you exactly what the progression history looks like. All seemed to coincide with the cpu gameplan sim being bronze. Either way I still stand by simming bronze. We can already out progress the cpu because we can think and the cpu has to use algorithms. No need to gain an advantage.

Now with that remember that is my own guideline. Nobody has to follow that. You only have to follow the 3 rules.

Re: TDawg's Madden 17 XP Sliders

Even with 4 weeks progression, if player gets big amount of XP at end of the year because of awards etc... CPU still buys development trait. Saw the Cowboys bumped Lucky Whitehead from normal to Superstar in one year. He had like 1100 yards and 10 tds and Jaylon Smith is a 90 overall as they bumped his development from quick to superstar and his awareness is a 99.

It definitely seems like it. How is it realistic to dump all of your xp points into man coverage in one year? like if a rookie comes into the league with 80 man coverage and by year 2 he's at 95 man coverage thats too much progression in too little of time.

Re: TDawg's Madden 17 XP Sliders

You guys just settled in on the 4 week progression listed a few days back?

I'm pretty much locked in on that set.

I figured that would still happen. But it shouldn't be that frrquent considering there are only so many awards given out. Plus it's kinda cool to have a guy breakout and get a development boost.

As for Awr being 99 that's the one draw back to 4 week progression if you do consider it a draw back. With the cpu spending all xp every 4 weeks a lot of the time they may only have enough to but Awr since it is relatively cheap compared to other things. One thing the cpu will not upgrade even if they have the xp is injury and toughness. Just something I noticed.
