Re: Madden 20's New Ability System Spotlights The League's Superstars (Game Informer)

Young says there's another reason for the new feature: How can the game go beyond ratings? "I think ratings are really good at the measurables," he says, "the combine type stats like speed, but for instance, Tom Brady has never been a great quarterback in Madden. What we've done is try to differentiate the quarterbacks and give them very unique things based on their archetype."


Something the OS community has been wanting for years with a push away from traditional ratings. Really encouraging addition.

I like the information presented in the article. Looking forward to trying the new features.

This can be a big feature for gameplay. Ratings isn't not enough. As long as it isn't overpowered, it could make a big deal. There felt like there was no difference between two similar players. So hopefully this shows it. My hope is that it isn't OP. But at the same time, I want the CPU players with abilities actually perform those abilities

This kinda reminds me of the abilities from APF 2k8 a little bit.

Totally agree. CPU not taking advantage of things available to the user has been an issue for while. I also hope they continue to build on this in the coming years and refine it throughout this season rather then scrapping it like they tend to do after a couple years.

The most important aspect of this IMO, is will there be enough animation variety to make these abilities play out realistically in game, instead of looking WWE-ish the way things like Hit Sticks often do.
