Definitely. I'd really like something like that. I'd like to be able to make triple options though, which was about the only thing you couldn't do in that editor.

You bring back custom play books and I might buy Madden games again... until then I will stick with NCAA football.

Re: Ian or Phil - What are your Thoughts on a Play Editor?

Im going against the grain here and simple feel like we shouldnt need it. If Ea just blows out the amount of plays and formations and gives us multiple amounts of defensive fronts. Just give us the ability to take the formations/Fronts/Stunts/ect...... And add them into are own customizable playbook.

The only reason I am not a big fan of play editor is because the AI will never be smart enough to keep up with some of the crazy formations and plays that we can come up with. It's a cheesy exploit way of getting the edge on the cpu or humans dumb AI.

If its the only way for us to get an insane amount of different defensive fronts/twists/stunts/blitz packages then its a easy YES. But I think EA should set asside a team to give us all these goodies so that we would not have to do it ourselves.

Offensively we need more variations of blocks. Traps,cut blocks,cross blocks/zone blocking/ ect..... Its football we should see all kinds of different ways to block. Again if its something EA cant do then Yes we need a player editor so we can atleast do it. But again there should be a team who studies football and understands these things.

Well then you don't have to use it.

Not to sound combative, but just because you don't want to create your own plays shouldn't mean that the rest of the Madden community has to be denied the option of creating their own plays and formations.

Personally, I don't care if there are referees on the field or not, and I think that the time spent on putting refs in the game with A.I. good enough to keep them from getting in the way would be better spent elsewhere. But I'm not openly campaigning against having them put into the game because I know many people do care about seeing referees on the field.

I hope you understand where I'm coming from, not all of us are searching for new and creative ways to exploit the A.I.. Some of us just desperately want the create-a-play/create-a-formation option back in the game to further personalize our gaming experience .

Re: Ian or Phil - What are your Thoughts on a Play Editor?

I agree with an earlier poster in that The playbook should at a minimum be editable in terms of formations like last gen NCAA. That was a great feature.

The HC play editor did pale in comparison to last years play editor. I couldnt believe that but it did. And it was buggy as hell, a lot of plays would work great in practice and you coulnt even get a handoff in the actual game.
