You have to see the pro's and con's of adding a tackling cone.

Pro's:
  • Helps new players learn how to tackle
  • Can Be turned off
  • Other games have built in tutorials (Usually first level of a game, they add on screen cues)
Con's:
  • How much development time was lost adding something that doesn't benefit the current Madden Gamer, can be turned off (and probably will for most people)
  • Why couldn't they just leave this in the Gauntlet or Training area
  • With a bunch else wrong with the game, couldn't they fix some of those areas first
  • Its a back of box feature, that will probably be gone in two years
As to JP...Adding a tackling cone doesn't count as teaching someone how to play football. It teaches them when to make a tackle in a video game.

This is my fear with every issue. Honestly I don't like the concept except for the ability to turn it off.

My task is this: It's already added and time was spent to implement, don't take it out, just leave it in the game for years to come as some may like it. I can't tell you how many features were added that I enjoyed and they took out within two years. It's simple once it's in the game unless there is a huge issue with it don't remove it.

I understand your point but again this dev team has committed to not doing that. Look at it this way, from Madden 13-15 what was removed that was a back of the box feature?

I assume you mean 13, 25 and 15. The point that was made was features last two years. So until we see 15 we won't know if everything that we saw promoted in 13 carried over the full two years to 15.

The only thing I know of that was removed in 15 is the coin toss, not a back of the box feature though. To my knowledge everything from 13-15 is still there and has been improved upon each year.

What do you mean "to my knowledge"?

To my knowledge I can say the same thing because people in the know haven't come out and say otherwise. Do you have any type of internal contact or information that makes your knowledge more than a person like me, who is an average Joe who just has internet access?

That's awesome, was wondering this myself. Wondering what jumbotron stuff they'll add for the bills. Maybe well see the charging Buffalo's before kickoff.

Meaning as far as I can remember, I never said anything contrary to make it sound like I'm more informed than anyone else, not sure where that came from.
