Re: Madden's future of CFM is alarming

I used to only play sports games...mainly offline franchises. I love to play with real life rosters and control my favorite teams and to see how I compare vs reality. EA destroyed hockey, haven’t even played it in years. Slowly stopped Madden. Didn’t even contemplate it this year. Heck, I can’t even change uniforms. Decided against fifa this year too. I’ll do 2k every so often, but I’m just not into basketball. I still do the show regularly, but I love baseball and there really isn’t much in the summer. I’ve also been playing other things like injustice and destiny. Long story short, EA has crapped on the games and modes that suit me so I vote with my wallet. It stinks, but I’m not going to hand over $60 per game annually that I don’t enjoy playing. I can’t do it. Sad thing is, for me and my money, there’s someone out there that will buy the superstar edition and spend even more on ultimate team packs and the company will take that trade any time.

So is my understanding correct that some members of the Madden team were "loaned" to the Live team to help work on Live's franchise mode?

Have you guys seen the state of Live's franchise mode?

"In short, the Franchise mode in NBA Live 18 is, for all intents and purposes, unplayable in its current form.

At its core, it feels like single NBA seasons linked together with the draft and free agency wedged in between. You start any franchise with your first game of the upcoming regular season. Instead of progressing by days, you progress by weeks, which is an odd choice for a basketball game. During the season, you can make tweaks to your roster by initiating trades, signing free agents, and upgrading your players (more on this later). And…that’s about it. Ten years ago, this would be perfectly fine for a franchise mode. But today? It doesn’t work."

Progressing through a season by weeks?
The feeling of a single season with a draft and free agency wedged in between?

Sounds like they did a copy and paste from Madden.

We are hoping for the best with Live and Madden sharing the same platform, but i just see this becoming another excuse and handicap for Maddens' franchise mode.

Once again... I hope I'm wrong.

That is almost exactly what they did. They even ported over the XP system.

I was hopeful that Live would at least be the first to roll out some kind of feature that could translate to Madden, but Live's franchise is as bare bones as it gets.

It already is an excuse for 18's lack of quality franchise unfortunately. Hoping for better effort being put into franchise on EA's part
