But I got enjoyment out of M25 but there were some big things that needed fixing that are small gameplay things that don't make pre-release news. Like does the CPU RT still allow my End to lead the league in sacks every year regardless of what you do to the sliders or settings.

I can't think of a CFM feature that would make Madden a must buy if someone didn't like M25. The gameplay is pretty much the same with better AI for defenders, it seems.
I don't buy it until I get enough info on it. I passed on most Maddens the previous console. I could tell by what they worked on, or didn't work on, that I would not be satisfied. Still waiting to see what M15 brings.

Well, I just rolled the tape again, and he did say there are significant improvements to CFM, mainly practice.

So, it depends on how you interpret that statement.

Significant improvements being plural and mainly practice being singular. lol

Hope there is more than just practice, time will tell.

Cmon man, that was their huge early announcement. Of course there were articles and information about it. Now it's graphics and defensive whatever. You could use to the "they didn't talk about yet, so it must not be changed" and go overboard with it as much as you want.. I haven't heard anything mentioned about online play, I guess they didn't add anything and it's exactly the same.

People keep mentioning EA's track record and then hang on to every word they say. If EA's track record is so bad what does it matter what they say 2 months before release? For example, if they improved simulation stats. That would be a pretty big thing for CFM, but not something they announce and hype up. And even IF they claimed they did I wouldn't believe it until they see it because y'know EAs track record.

I would've thought he said "They only change we made to CFM was to practice mode."

LOL, I almost got my feathers ruffled but it's all good man, we see things differently, nothing wrong with that.

Re: Was/has there been any franchise info released?

LMAO, I've just read this whole damn thread thinking I missed some franchise info or there was some info leaked or something to explain the reason this thread is 27 pages long. Lol guess the joke's on me.

Since I'm here, I guess I might as well comment before ducking back into my hole. I will genuinely say that I have no idea how to look at this lack of CFM info at this point. It could be that they are doing so much that they are worried about not being able to get it all in so they want to make sure they have a good idea about what's in the game before talking OR (and most likely IMO) they haven't done enough to really devote a lot of time to talk about it. Madden usually goes gold at about the end of July so I'm sure we're gonna start hearing stuff in the next few weeks. Based on past experiences tho, it most likely will be hardly worth the wait.

I can tell you with a fairly high level of certainty that your expectations will not be met. All of what you described is not even on the radar for cfm

Especially since we can throw out the rumors and that the reason why EA didn't release any info was because of 2K coming back. Why with a month to go, do we still have nothing? That is the one thing that I don't get. I don't know if the marketing team is being lazy this year or not, but they need to get the hype going on what is improved in CFM.

I'm not getting a PS4 until September(already Pre-Ordered the White Destiny Bundle with the White PS4) so EA better give me some reason to buy Madden 15 on the PS4 other than it looks shiny in still shots.
