Re: Rumor vs Facts

Fact: no formation subs this year. Stated on twitter by clint.

On a side note an mut edition is not my thing but I wish they would the nfl online package last year. That was worth the entire amount. The game was a bonus.

Such is the nature of the video game industry nowadays, what with Season Passes, map packs, and DLC in general. At least the Ultimate Team / MyTeam gameplay modes are reasonably well-designed in terms of how a team is built.

Correcting this before anyone unnecessarily panics (because someone invariably will, even though I'm pretty sure what I'm about to describe is exactly what you meant): in the gameplay videos provided, the user can very clearly still substitute players in a given formation from the play call screen when choosing plays by formation (or package on offense). What I'm guessing this refers to is the lack of an outside-of-game formation substitution interface, similar to what existed on the PlayStation 2 Madden games or within the later versions of the NCAA Football series on the XBOX 360 / PS3.

For the record, I'm still not happy with this development.

See to me this falls under the umbrella of a rumor and not a fact. At any rate it is not a big deal to me because A) I don't care who is on the cover and, B) I have no interest in MUT.

If this is to be a fact vs rumor thread, I request that all facts be supported by sources. Regarding formation subs and their presence in the game, could we have a link to where Clint said this? That way we know context and we don't have to speculate as to what he actually meant(as that is how rumors develop).

ON the issue of formation subs, I will be very unhappy if they still have not given us the ability to set subs outside of the game. NCAA had it. No excuse for them not doing it.

Regarding the end of ur statement..this again doesn't seem hard and was in the baby version (NCAA) of Madden..why is this still out? Online fears?

Re: Rumor vs Facts

Could someone clarify the difference between the ultimate edition and the regular?

If I recall correctly, Ultimate Edition includes like $40 worth of Ultimate Team booster packs rewarded to the user over the course of the NFL season.

The conversation itself is ambiguous as well, which is why I made my post earlier in this thread; substitutions are still clearly present in the play call interface, but it doesn't appear we'll be able to set those outside-of-game once again this year.

Sigh, and it will probably be too much to ask for to have them at least stick week to week. I am nearing the end of my rope on Madden.
