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

Where did this MUT thing come from? I didn't even know what it was until last year. I feel like,for the past fifteen years, it's pretty much been all about franchise mode or player mode, and all of the sudden this MUT thing is massive. I mean...it's basically just like a fantasy draft mode that EA can monetize, right? I don't see what's so amazing about this mode.

To be honest, I'm actually surprised EA hasn't found a way to monetize franchise mode. I'm sure die hard fans would pay extra for certain bonuses that made the mode more engaging or interactive. Not trying to give them ideas, I'm just surprised it hasn't happened yet.

It's been in for a while I believe, but I'm in the same boat. I really don't understand the appeal behind playing it. The only thing I can guess is that it adds some sort of creativity to online play now. It seems like the only thing anybody on Twitch plays as well. And it seems like once it gets to a certain point it's just people playing with near identical teams fill with nothing but 99 everything. Maybe that is the appeal to it.

One thing it does is kind of make me miss the Madden Points and Madden Cards they used to have.

MUT was first introduced in Madden NFL 10; it was not accessible at launch, but rather was made available via a patch midway through that game's lifecycle.

I finally found this, around the 35 min mark Rex says gameplay, presentation, MUT, and CFM were significantly overhauled & upgraded http://youtu.be/LSKLRr35BwA

I think I missed the boat on this feature. I've never played it and can't see how it might be fun, esp. since the plan seems to be to build invincible teams full of perfect players. I got the card-collecting thing out of my system when I was a kid--back when you got bubble gum in your packs and the cards were real and cost real coins!

Basically that's it. It seems to me it would be easier to spend just $60, start a CFM under Fantasy Draft and you pay nothing extra for it. Yet mindless sheep continue to spend extra money when they don't realize Fantasy Draft is accessible in CFM.

It's those mindless sheep that has caused them to continue to improve MUT and ignore CFM.

Well he was right about the gameplay, and considering how right he was, I'm even more interested in seeing what was done to presentation and CFM.

A lot of these cards cost real coins too lol.

MUT isn't for me but it doesn't bother me if its in there bc it brings in a lot of money which should in turn help them make the game better yr after yr.
