World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, 2010
World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, 2012
Warlords of Draenor 2014
Overwatch 2016



RPG games all the way.. As many may know, these games are heavy on strategy. They involve a lot of strength and weakness mechanics with each attack used, player skill, there is a counter.

There is generally a bunch of ways to set up a character for combat in these games which allows for a lot of strategy...Those who put in the time will be rewarded with greater results.

As many also probably know - YouTube and Twitch are filled with the content of these games provided by the community. Everything from theory to actual mechanics and strategy..

I love strategy. I am most likely reading too much into this, but I will allow my mind to wander to my best idea of Madden, and the future looks awesome.

(I am extremely bias though; outside of football, I think World of Warcraft is probably, consistently, the greatest game) I could sit and play, just the Auction House, for hours.
Impressive, impressive resume if you ask me.

I hope he approaches the series in a realistic/sim direction for gameplay and not strictly a "video game" way of development. We have enough of that already.

Add in the fact that Rex seemed to be leading the charge for significant CFM changes paired with the nature of his exit and perceived direction that Madden is heading, and I think it's perfectly reasonable for someone to think that this move could have an impact on franchise mode. Most likely not this year, but certainly moving forward.

This is exactly my thoughts.

This hire here doesn't scream out any football background(gaming or IRL), so, I am skeptical as well.(Rex ex-college player)

Time will tell. RPG, Esports doesn't equate to sim to me, but I'll wait and see where this goes.

I am glad that Clint has been promoted for lead gameplay designer, good for him, he keeps active after Madden is released on Twitter trying to answer questions.

Though his background doesn't initially scream football, I'm trying to be cautiously optimistic about how his pairing with Clint could actually be really productive. Clint can focus best on how gameplay can replicate what he saw in the NFL while Guerrero can focus upon how to provide strategic counter weights or control balances to "check" every new feature added to gameplay. Just to give an example from a past feature as to what I mean... Think of the addition of clicking the right stick to crash zones down to counter balance the ability of QBs to scramble, or ID the Mike to counter blitzes. These are things the competitive side of the game would need to have to be an esport while still allowing the ability to implement traditionally "sim features". You can even argue the R2 jump the snap and R1 hard count are strategic checks on each other. I'd expect to see more of this.


Though, I do not believe we will see a ton of major focus on franchise so much as game play after'19 until fans flip out again over lack of franchise improvement. But, I don't think franchise will "go away". It's still one of their top played modes.

Re: 'Madden 19' News: Carlos Guerrero Takes Over As Senior Producer For Series

I think of something Mills has said constantly on his streams....paraphrasing, but the gist was that sports games were basically RPGs with a sports backdrop. That's really a fairly accurate statement....we are essentially role-playing as either players or coaches/GMs. Guerrero's resume is heavy into this genre (and certainly with games featuring a heavy online focus). In those respects, his expertise in those areas would seem to jive.

RPGs are heavy into strategic countermoves AND dice-rolls....two things which are fundamental aspects of having a quality football experience. I'm confident that Clint, if left to his own devices, can create the appropriate football backdrop and hopefully in a sim fashion...if Carlos can complement that backdrop with the strategic elements, this could wind-up being a fine move for gameplay.

The core of football (both on the field and on the virtual gridiron) is about tactics and strategies and having the appropriate pieces (players) to successfully execute them. Whether it is placing a pikeman against a mounted unit or a Cover 2 LB against a TE, it is all about moves and countermoves. Stick skills (even on competitive modes) is really secondary to the tactics.

I'm intrigued...there is potential here....

Senior Producer only has vague creative responsibilities. It's more important he is a solid organizational mind. Clint is now lead gameplay. This is all good news.
