Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

"M13 runs on a unified asset manager that can be easily manipulated by the designers. It has a very powerful test bed. Now, I'm gone now, so I can't say one way or another why it hasn't been used to its potential, but the potential is there."

I don't want to beat the dead horse too much, but yeah that wants me to demand answers from EA. The primary selling point of the then connected careers mode was how easy it would be to build upon it, yet here we are.

As for whether it was rebuilt from the ground up, maybe its semantics. Or maybe its just a better sales pitch than saying "we cleaned up the code a bit"

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

Actually, what AJ alluded to in his post, and what I remember from back then, first and foremost they wanted online/offline to work together as one:

It happened because there was no way to bring the existing franchise mode online, and we were never going to have the resources to do it as two separate modes. We needed 1 unified franchise mode to be used online and offline.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

You don't remember this place?

It was WWIII in here and understandably so.

For them, as AJ alluded to, it was about saving resources.

"We would never have the resources for two different modes." "1 unified FM mode."

To me, that's a bottom line business decision.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I remember all too well.

It got to the point where I got absolutely sick of hearing the phrase good foundation to build on lol

Edit: It may have been a bottom line business decision, but its why the "mood" in this forum is so bad right now. There have been a lot of business decisions made that leaves us franchise guys feeling forgotten about

3 weeks and maybe some of this "mood" might be a bit lighter. We'll see.

lol AJ, took me awhile to find that post.
