[quote=The JareBear;2046404364]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.

Where would I find these ratings ?

This should never be an issue, hire a guy who has a degree in relevant fields that actually qualify him for this job.

I would really love to see what DM qualifications are that he is in charge of this.

From what DCEBB said it seems like it wouldn't matter who would be doing the ratings. They'll be at the mercy of marketing and we would continue to have biased ratings.

Donny Moore specifically asked me what I would do if someone from the marketing department or an executive told me to change a rating for a player. The example he used was, "If you had Larry Fitzgerald rated as a 93 OVR but a suit came down and told you to change it to a 99, what would you do or say?"

I answered his question with a question: "Why would an executive have any say over how a player is rated". His response was that it was a "hypothetical" question. I said that I wouldn't like it one bit because it would undermine the system. Needless to say, I guess I wasn't willing to "play ball" enough to get hired for the job.

Do what's need to get in through the door. You could very well have said, "Perfectly fine. Sure I'll change Larry Fitzgerald's OVR from a 93 to a 99."

And you follow up by changing the universal rating scale. Maximum now would be 106 as oppose to the standard 100. So, technically Larry Fitzgerald would definitely be a 99 but on an adjusted scale of 1-106, Fitzgerald would still have an OVR attribute of 99 but in the overall scheme of things he would still be a 93.

"Suits, Larry Fitzgerald is now literally, numerically a 99 as you wanted."

So it sounds like we really can't blame Donny. We all do things at work we don't like just so we can keep our job. If you don't want to do those things then the job isn't right for you. Or at least that particular company. Close minded as it might be sometimes you don't have a choice.
