Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

All the people who have been complaining about him for the last few years have gotten their wish, now we'll see how they feel about the person who replaces him. I'll see as well, but I personally feel like simheads suffered a big L today.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.

If Madden was a great game I'd be worried but it's not so I'm looking forward to the new direction.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

This is going to take some time to figure out how I feel. I liked that he made himself available to the community. I just do not know what he contributed, meaning: did he push for target passing? Was Longshot his vision? Mut Squads?


Longshot was a cute little run through, but since it was nothing like Road to the Show, it was ultimately a waste of resources, IMO. Maybe there is some big leap this year. But it would have to be huge.

Target passing, so much more should have been addressed in place of this passing system.

The wording of the letter seems to lean towards a situations where the executives wanted to fire him, but gave him a chance to resign.

I will wait for M19 information, videos and reviews before I commit. Though I already put in my pre-order.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

Rex was a cool guy when others in his position where not in the past. I feel dispite what Madden has become (online and MUT play), that his heart was in the right place.

Suits ruin everything and wouldn’t be shocked if that had something to do with it.

R.I.P any hopes for sim play. An already bad game just got worse.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

Outside of Clint and maybe John white (when not working on live), how many of the people he mentioned would be considered sim/franchise guys?

Should be interesting to see what type of upgrades CFM received, if any.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I am leaning towards the glitches in game which happened on live television, as a downfall to some degree. These types of issues cannot happen when the business is attempting to become an esport monster.

Hope animations saw some sort of improvement. Hoping Franchise got some much needed help. It would seem that the top basketball and baseball games have solid Franchise modes, so the mode should still be a focus.

I think ultimately, that the executes may want to push the championships, tournaments and esport games...This means nearly flawless animations and user control in many aspects of the game like pre-snap adjustments.
