Re: Open Beta: Why Not?

Closed beat you control the info aka we can’t talk about what we played. Open beta trolls crapping all over the game videos all over YouTube ripping the game killing sales which is why you won’t see a open beta.

Nope, you paid for previews or early access not to be in the Beta though.

This is the type of stuff I'm talking about that needs to be ignored, though:

Im looking at some of the feedback on this Madden 19 beta forum. Smh this game would be ruined if they listened to this person with the most votes on their comment

then don't build a ****ty game for them to show on youtube and "kill sales".


anytime there is a review embargo or a total blackout on gameplay prior to a games release...well...it's gonna be dog****, i guarantee it.

The dude you're responding to is just trolling.

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

Re: Open Beta: Why Not?

They did a closed beta for Fifa this year too. I assume some things were identified and fixed, other things took longer to fix, and somethings never were addressed/couldn't be addressed. At least they are asking for input, it is just in a controlled manner. They'll get plenty of other input like they do every year once the game gets released, and we all have plenty of methods by which to judge if the game is worth purchasing.

Re: Open Beta: Why Not?

It's not just fans that got into the Beta.

I haven't played, or been a fan of Madden for some years now. The last Madden I actually bought (actually received as a gift) was Madden 25 on the PS4, didn't make it through a season and stopped playing. Before that it was Madden 12 on the PS3 and same thing, got bored/frustrated about half way through the season and stopped playing. The last Madden that I truly enjoyed was Madden 2005 on the PS2 and that is the game that I play for my NFL fix.

I mention all of that to say this. It's not just "fans" of the game providing feedback. There is/was a lot about this series that I absolutely don't like/care for. And playing in this BETA is giving me an opportunity to see just how much of my "issues" have been addressed and fixed over the years and this year. Granted I haven't provided much feedback just yet on the forums because I'm allowing the "newness" to wear off and see the game at its core instead of posting solely off the "excitement" of playing a new game.

The idea of an open beta on a game like Madden doesn't help with what they are trying to accomplish if the idea is to get insightful feedback to help make it a better game for their fanbase. Look we all know there are two camps in regards to Madden. You either like it or you hate it. And when the idea is to get insightful feedback to help improve the current game being worked on, it doesn't help to have those two camps involved in a pissing contest on the feedback forums. It doesn't do anything to help accomplish the task at hand.

Time will only tell if this closed Beta helped EA accomplish the goal they had in mind when they did this, but again, if the goal was to gain insightful feedback to help make '19 a better game, then a closed Beta was the only way to accomplish that goal.

PS: I never thought I would be posting in the Madden forums again.
