If that was the case they wouldn't allow you to re-rate players outside of CFM and use that roster.

Could you imagine how we could affect the game play of a cfm if we could change player ratings? If cb weren't doing tight enough coverage could bump there coverage rating up. If qbs were to good we could lower their rating.
You answered your own question, sort of. WE could change gameplay.. EA does not want that. If and when they implement the features, I will change my view about them.. I do believe they have the right team and going the right direction.. but allowing custom draft classes kills two birds with one stone.. The errant EA ratings and the CFM rookie ratings.

Right now, we cannot fix the EA ratings because in CFM, the rookies would overtake that ruining the custom roster.

While I can understand you wanting real rookies and I respect your opinion on the matter, for some of us it's not that important. I play some CFM's for 10+ seasons so after year 4 there really are no more "real rookies" to use. I either had to use the fake players from NCAA or the fake players from Madden. As long as the fake players from Madden are semi accurate (no more 70spd WR's, names matching etc.) I can have fun with them.

That was not the case last year. I lowered just about every player in the league before starting my CFM. The incoming rookies in CFM were rated about the same as the rookies are this year (first rounders being in the 80/70's and everything declining from there).

Comes back to it is my game and I should be able change things I want to. I don't understand why Ea doesn't get this. Not like we haven't been asking for it for years. Look at NBA2k, they took it out one year and people didn't like and they put it back in.

What makes you think EA doesn't get it?

Re: Why can't madden bring back franchise?

The NCAA Football Series "got it" when they brought in a quick season mode and they still had dynasty and online dynasty for those who wanted it. I just hope, again, that Madden will do the same with something similar.


This thread is exactly what I was asking for when I inquired about a season mode. I should have put old school franchise instead.


My point is there is nothing wrong with having 2 different "season" modes to play the game. Not everyone likes to play like me. And I surely don't like to play like the next guys does.

Re: Why can't madden bring back franchise?

The best example of full franchise customization I can think of, is Pro Evolution Soccer. Almost every team, stadium, kit, player, badge, league, tournament is customizeable. However that's only because they don't have the official licenses for everything. So if you're one of those guys who likes to make everything about your franchise how you want it to be, you should look into PES 2015 when it's released.
