1. The devs are hamstrung by the marketing team when it comes to ratings, preventing them from rating players accurately.

2. They know their system is severely flawed, and were seeking outside opinion.

3. They are more interested in publicity than making a great game.


I could not live with myself working under those conditions and sacrifice all the work I have put into FBG Ratings to only have them perverted by people who care more about selling video games than attempting to depict reality.
I feel like this is why they gave us hot and cold streaks and consistency ratings. They can't rate him low but give him 0 consistency and they won't play up to their ratings very often.

I get that Marketing drives a.lot of what they do But it would seem like eternally they could give more disparity between ratings. Visually we see two guys who are a point overall different. But under the hood it equals two or three. I would think everybody wins.

Option 3 would be having sliders similar to speed threshold where a greater number made the attributes more apparent or less apparent. One end could be arcade where all the ratings play close together and SIM where you could actually tell a difference between having 90 awareness qb and 89 awareness qb.

Having played games in Madden 25 with Dan's player rating methodology (I believe his current ratings are set for his "true mean" system, correct me if I'm wrong) I feel like his re-ratings do offer a more measured and more strategic game within the confines of the game Madden offers. I have come to prefer them to the default ratings set.

85 is considered low compared to most other qbs So that's subjective I'm sure.

I suspect the full ratings won't be posted to stop this happening again:

Correct, right now everything is set to True Mean. That means that instead of using a high and low point only and then using linear regression, there is a third point added at the population mean. For example, a QB's THP ranges from 99 to 70 in our system. The average is 84. So we set the maximum grade (5.0) to 99, the minimum grade (1.0) to 70, and the average grade (2.5) to 84. Create a nice polynomial curve and you have a regression that covers all QBs based on their scouting grades.

In my humble opinion the default ratings and the weekly updates from Moore are maybe the least realistic part of Madden. EA just doesn't take a good approach to ratings and it shows when you can use a re-rated roster from OS that literally makes the game better, improves the experience, makes sliders more effective, shows off more animations, more varied outcomes.

Hardest part will be for me to wait for a good OS roster before starting my CFM.
