The MUT Men Podcast #85 with Rex Dickson




This is basically a two hour interview with Rex. Considering who is giving the interview a lot of the conversation is of course geared toward MUT and the competitive community, nevertheless there is A LOT of interesting information here.

I would view the video on YouTube because the interviews have timestamped every topic with a link to that question. With the exception of a couple of joke questions the entire thing is well worth the listen, IMO. Rex's closing statements about Target Passing are quite candid.

I'm at work and don't have time to watch the whole two hours. Can someone tell me what "NCAA" means?

Real answer: NCAA is still on their minds, it will come back eventually but the legal stuff had to first be sorted out.

He said that it was the biggest gameplay feature failure of his tenure, that no one is using it, and that he had to admit to his bosses that he wasted the resources that it took to implement it, when that time could have been spent on something else. The hosts tried to speak about how it could be improved for next year, but he essentially said, naw it's trash.

Rex intimated that NCAA 14 is the best EA football game that he has made and that he hasn't made a Madden game yet that makes him feel as proud as he does about that game. So the hosts segued that into a question about the potential return of that series.

He said that of course the want it back, and are always approaching the brass with ways in which they might bring it back on some level, but these ideas don't really get much traction. He does thing that eventually the NCAA will iron out the legal issues and such and that they will be ready jump back in.

Hopefully the failure of target passing will show them that adding something new for the sake of saying you added a new feature isn't the best use of resources. I'd be more likely to buy next year's game if they fixed EVERYTHING that is currently in the game and broken as opposed to buying it if next year's release is full of a bunch of new back of the box features

Re: The MUT Men Podcast #85 with Rex Dickson

If they are approaching Madden from the perspective where they would like to be in 5 years, and adding “gameplay features” is not something eligible for live updates, the next year or two will be critical for me.

I’m not sure coaching carousels would be considered gameplay features, but if that framework doesn’t exist before we transition to live weekly updates, I️ will be very confused about the 5 year plan.

I️ hope the next interview he does with someone focuses on the 5 year plan and less on the next year or so. Kind of want a sense of his best case dream scenario/goal so I️ can assess my place in the world of EA/madden.
