And every company's first priority is either their shareholders, if they are publicly traded company or the bottom line if they aren't publicly traded company. The NCAA lawsuit lost EA around 50-60 million, iirc, whether it be the settlement payments or lawyers fees.
There's no 'official' statement I've actually seen other than they aren't applying 'resources'. They haven't ever stated that it's the lawsuit issue, and as far as I know, albeit that it's likely. With regards to glitching, I've imported rosters with created players into the offline mode without any glitching. The created players show up in stories and tweets by the press.

Re: Custom draft classes officially not in madden 16

Shame.. I don't know if it really is just development cost + the cost of the NFL licence or legal reasons but EA has really existed in a vacuum closing in on a decade now when it comes user customization.. In the past I always rationalized them not adding this as a way to push the NCAA games...

This is a feature that could really enhance and add hours of play time to the offline and online Connected Career experience as well but alas....maybe Madden 17 :\

Re: Custom draft classes officially not in madden 16

I posted this in another thread but it applies here too:

EA could allow people to edit the draft classes and not have to worry about a NCAA related lawsuit. EA cant allow people to share those draft classes through Madden Share and thats the problem.

The way EA sees it is the likelihood of people editing their own draft class is pretty low. Most people dont have the time or inclination to edit hundreds of players. Most people will only use that functionality if they are allowed to download a draft class file easily through the game. EA isnt (and shouldnt) be willing to take that risk because it could lead to a breach of its settlement agreement in the O'bannon lawsuit and another lawsuit. The way EA sees it is if you cant share a draft class why bother putting it in the game.

LOL. Plenty of things. MUT, Online Franchise, a new Superstar mode.

Oh...you mean what the "sim crowd" wants? Well we arent even close to the majority.

FYI, the majority dont give a **** about editable draft classes.

But one thing guys, about the whole not knowing if 2k had this feature -- I think you missed the point.

Our stance is that there is no reason for custom draft classes to not be in the game.
When Clint asked which sports titles let you do that he may have been making a point. NBA 2K is the only one that does that.

So on the one hand here we are saying it is a necessity, yet only 1 title has it.
There are three reasons:

One, if done right it could complicate the Obannon settlement and lead to another lawsuit

and

Two, most people dont use this feature and they dont want to put the resources toward it.

and

Three, it likely causes glitches in CCM because CCM is a ****ty horribly built franchise mode.

By invest he means putting resources toward a feature very few people use and one that wont be able to be used toward its full potential (no sharing)

Editing draft classes are asked for more than anything else? Really? Where did you get that info from?
