Re: GridIron Notes: Face Of The Franchise and Franchise Updates

Madden devs should know better than to use action-adventure or RPG terms when describing anything in the game, it causes people to panic. The Madden audience has selective hearing and reading abilities and many don't do their homework well enough to get clarification on what a thing means before flipping out.

Anyway, I'm actually very glad to hear that the ratings spread isn't in MUT. It makes it more likely that they will stay spread out since we won't have to hear the MUT crowd melting down over the lower rated players.

That has to be the WORST franchise write up I have seen in years.

Not because they aren't doing anything to franchise, it's the fact they are trying to turn franchise into arcade style playing card game like MUT. You don't beat JJ Watt with a "boss battle", you double team him or play action to the other side same goes for Odell or Julio, you roll coverage. This isn't football strategy.

They repurpose a ton of code from MUT and Longshot to make us think they invested into franchise then add "Candy Crush" sound effects and pavlovian processes to make you feel like you're playing a strategy game.

Whoo hoo, my player card just released its X-factor! Ding!

I have seen iPad games with more innovation than this.

Re: GridIron Notes: Face Of The Franchise and Franchise Updates

This isn’t really a huge issue. Just a big oversight.

So your character appears on screen and you use him to pick your college. But THEN you edit yourself? That’s just odd. Seems like you should create your character before he appears.

Oh well, facial editing is something I’ve been asking for since it was taken away after the ps2 days. So that makes me incredibly happy.

I really hope you can edit a created players face too. But it wouldn’t surprise me if it was only for QB1

Boss battles......First thing that popped into my head was Mario Brothers football. Pick a goal against the BOSS BATTLE JJ Watt. 400 yards passing or no sacks. And that's a franchise IMPROVEMENT?

I'm now of the opinion that all of these inclusions are aimed at the casual audience. Even the ratings spread is probably from more casual Madden players claiming that their players are increasing by 5 overall points for every skill points they earn.

Haha had I known you guys were here panicking I’d have come sooner, I saw JP’s tweet but didn’t know context.

Here is the thing, hanging on the idea of “boss battle” is silly. Had they called it “gridiron objectives” no one would really flinch about it. The idea is there are weekly goals not all that different from a lot of the weekly objectives currently in franchise across all your players, these ones are just more up front and center because of QB1. All I can say is just wait and see, I promise it’s not as convoluted as you’d think.

OS is always looking for something to go wrong.
