The default classes in '18 were almost spot-on as far as age. 24 year olds are not that rare. About half of 5th-year seniors come out at 24.
Haven't done any research so I'm just guessing ,but doesn't this vary by position? Also aren't many juniors that come out predominantly in the earlier rounds?

Re: Madden NFL 19 Franchise Blog

Regarding the Custom Draft Classes, I wish that there was a middle ground between totally random and knowing everything that there is to know ahead of time.

I'd like to be able to change the players' names, faces, ages and school without actually seeing their abilities, and have to unlock those later through the scouting process. That way you could have the real life players, but still enjoy that part of the GM process as well (which is one of my favorites).

So this isn't some new feature.
Certainly the ratings were in the game for a number of years , and the last couple did nothing in gameplay , not sure if they ever did or if it was a mechanic that they never got to work

Has me thinking now though , is it a certainty these new ratings pertain to gameplay? , or are they just in the game as the basis for the archetype/ scheme fit system ?

In most real life draft classes, anyone over 23 is rare. And many of those guys are low rated and get drafted in the 6th and 7th rounds. Age 23 players are not rare, but the majority of the guys are 21 or 22.

In the past 2018 draft, here's the breakdown of the first round by age:

25 - 1. TE Hurst who played baseball before doing college football

24 - 1. OT McGlinchey, who seems to have been 20 years old as a college freshman for some reason

23 - 4

22 - 9

21 - 15

20 - 1

Disregard that post, I opened the wrong spreadsheet and was using bad data. It was from a previous false start in analyzing the draft classes.

EDIT: Ok, I'll actually put this in digestible form soon so other people can use it create classes, but here's why my 24 yo number came out so high. The reason that data was invalid is because some of it was converted for use, some of it was raw data.

I adjusted ages to the start of the season, but the average was based on the raw numbers.

Here's why; there are 6 months between the draft and the start of the NFL season. That means half of the 23 year olds will turn 24, half of the 22 year olds will turn 23.

Madden advances ages at season end, so what really matters is how old these players will be at the start of the season. A guy drafted at 23 in real life who turns 24 in July should be counted as 24 in Madden since his age won't be advanced until the end of that season.

So my original post was essentially accurate.

Re: Madden NFL 19 Franchise Blog

Disappointed that we get nothing about free agency - it seems as though more of the choices and updates made are with Offline CFM in mind before Online CFM, where there shouldn't be a disconnect - it should all be fluid.


The points system in free agency kills immersion, everyone snipes as the advance window closes, we even had to create a random advance window to try and stop that from happening (but if you aren't on the console near advance, you're screwed!).


Also not thrilled with the custom draft classes - no randomization, no way for us to do this without the commissioner being accused of cheating or collusion. I know Shop says in his tweets 'get a better commissioner', but in our league we've been together since 2012, and no matter how close of a group you have, nobody is thrilled at the idea of 1 person knowing every player inside and out.
