I don't understand why progression can't be handled like The Elder Scrolls. The more you do something successfully, the better you get at it. The more medium passes you complete, that attribute adjusts accordingly. The more successful your stiff arms are, the better your stiff arm attribute gets.

I hate having to manually select where XP gets distributed. You can use XP to make stats better that you didn't earn or get that XP from. It doesn't make sense.

Take that for what you will. Not sure if its as big a win as custom draft classes would be, but the online draft guide issue was a big problem for multiplayer online CFMs which sorely needed to be addressed.
Didn't they say this before though?

My concern is that he only means it won't be sequential like past years. I want random names/ratings/colleges...everything. The way it is worded it sounds like they could have 30 draft classes but they'll be randomized instead of sequential order. But the class population will remain static.

"Guides will be useless this year" implies to me that, regardless if the tailored draft classes are ordered or unordered, users will not be able to document the players to crib sheets to create cheat sheets for all online players going forward, which is the biggest concern.

I personally don't really care if the 30 draft classes are completely random or not so long as other users I can't control can no longer game the system, putting me at a disadvantage because I choose to not read said guides. Fairness is my biggest concern.

I don't see how they can keep their fascination with story lines and truly randomize. Sure, they can shuffle the draft class deck in random order, but that's just an increment, not a solution.

They have only gone about this by increments. They introduced some alternate outcomes for some story line players, and created some randomized potential ratings for a subset of non-story line players in the draft last year. Looman said that would make the draft guides obsolete last year. But it didn't.

Taking the structure from last year and allowing any of the 30 draft classes to appear in random order will not solve any of this. The only way I can see they could solve it would be to let go of the story lines.

In that case, you could randomize names and ratings for any draft class. With how much Looman seemed to be enamored of the whole story line feature, I doubt they let it go.

If only there was a way around the draft classes, by allowing us to edit them...

And their "fix" did more harm then good. By introducing a random element it resulted in messed up ratings. I got a CB rated 88 strength. The draft classes actually got worse this past year. Way to go EA.

I really hope Clint was being sneaky and in two weeks or so will come out and say guides will be useless because of the edit draft class feature. But I am also hoping to be captain of the starship Enterprise.
