Oh, that is how it works?

No one can get burned out in that industry, interview while employed, discuss with family a major move to a different state and enjoy more family time.

Got it.

Anyway, from this angle, I don't see how this changes anything in the direction of the current state of the game.

Proof is already there with Ian from the past.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

That's fine with me. Seems like they needed to take a different direction as far as their creativity was concerned. Maybe now, we can put back some of the things that actually made Madden stand out in the past. If he has been on since 2012, I can see that he won't be missed. They haven't really added anything special since then.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I think Rex did a great job overall, and he put in a ton of work interacting with community, and even owning when they screwed up. His Madden was a mixed bag overall, but his tenure is responible for some significant improvements and innovations as well.

You simply can't do a job like that one forever. I wish him and his family the best.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

It was a pleasure that we got to meet/chat with Rex at EA Play last year.

Really down to earth guy in person with folks in light of the role/position he held.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

A shame. I just hope the next Creative Director doesn't cram MUT down my throat. I couldn't care less about MUT. I'd rather spend an hour dedicated to a single draft.

I think Rex was solid and added a lot to the game. Like Ian, I felt like Rex really wanted to do more than what he was allowed.

I feel like the issues a lot of us have with the game are due to decisions made from people that were above Rex, so realistically the best case scenario with Rex's replacement is going to be status quo

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

To me it feels like perfect timing for them to drop the ball on CFM and then the new guy doesn't get any of the blame.

I don't see anything good coming from this in terms of improving Madden but feel free to prove me wrong EA (they won't).

Exactly the same path that Ian followed.
