That is not realistic.

I think the XP system should remain for the CFM Player mode, but switch to the old progression system for Coach/GM. But EA would not do this because they want uniformity across all of CFM.
Now I can see where keeping the XP/RPG for a player mode where you are building up one player makes sense. And I agree that a more realistic progression system makes sense for a Coach/GM/Owner mode. But I seriously think they should keep the XP system in place since it's already coded and many like the system. But I would advocate (Just like BigFnDeal) an OPTION for either an RPG XP system OR a realistic progression system.

I say, and I think you might agree, why take away from what others currently have and enjoy. Just give options so more can enjoy. See, I'm not so heartless.

I agree if they want to keep online "locked down" for lack of a better term,
they should have full options for an offline mode only.
Maybe in due time. We'll see.

I do though think many more things need fixed in the core gameplay first along with a ton more atmosphere etc..

I think the madden team is out of touch with some of its user base. Think they are more gearing towards casual users.

I do agree and I would say that I am somewhat indifferent towards the XP system on its own. But I believe it is that XP system that is preventing the editing that we want from returning to the game. Because of that I am in the XP-be-gone camp. If they find a way to reconcile the two that would be better though.

Who knows, by the time the mode is fully realized, CFM might be the "franchise" standard going forward. It's much more challenging going up against real human competition. No AI will ever be able to simulate 32 completely different philosophies. So from that perspective I understand it. I may not like it, but it is what it is.
Totally agree, for me if they just made controlling all 32 teams easier like they did with the old franchise mode, a one click option or toggle it would be happy days for the offline guys. Creating 32 profiles for cfm blows and the time it takes is ridiculous.

CFM is Connected Franchise Mode, where you can play as a coach, owner, or player.

It's basically the old franchise mode and it can be played as a single player offline vs the cpu, just like the old days.

Re: Why can't madden bring back franchise?

I would say that CFM is the same as the old franchise mode other than the xp system and the fact that NCAA draft classes aren't available .The exception to this in the editing is '12.I guess most of the team at EA was on the way out so they actually made the rarity of throwing us a bone.

This should be a lot closer to Head Coach '09 at this point in terms of management elements and at least having coordinators and such.The frustrating thing is that while there are similarities in most instances there are still things important to many that were in M12 and HC09 that are being avoided now.

You can't really get a fully satisfying version.You have to pick your poison and figure out which has the features you find most important to you personally.
