Re: Franchise Fanatics - What Else Is Missing?

My short list would be:

Practice squads: Would allow you to squirrel away players while they develop/incase of injury. Would like option to promote/demote players from/to active roster during season.

Edit other teams players: The ability to edit player appearances of other teams in franchise mode without having to manage all the other teams. I know this may seem minor to some, but it really bugs me when after importing a draft class, a WR is wearing the # 1 because that's how he came over from NCAA. It would also be nice if there was an algorithm that would assign imported NCAA players NFL approved numbers based on their position to avoid a scenario where Lauranitis wears 33 in the NFL or James Davis is wearing 1.

More complex negotiations with players: Perhaps this could be an option where you have something that would simulate more complex negotiations with players and more feedback on why a given players moral is low. Would really make you feel like the GM of your franchise team if you could interact with disgruntled players as the season (and offseason) went on.

Have FA work like the offseason FA wire: Like someone pointed out earlier in this thread, in-between seasons, before the pre-season you basically can sign any FA you want and this isn't realistic. If you choose to do so, you have an opportunity to get first pick at any FA. I would like to see FA work like the offseason FA wire in that any offer to a FA could potentially be challeged or beat by a competing offer. I think this would make the challenge of signing FA's more exciting (as long as it wasn't overdone).

Re: Franchise Fanatics - What Else Is Missing?

I like how HC09 allowed you to bring in college coaches as coordinators with different philosophies. But I want Madden to take it a step further and put in position coaches. Say I have a WR coach with a Run n Shoot background, my playbook should have more choice route concepts. If I have an RB coach with a power option background, I should probably have some triple or flex option plays in my hip pocket.

Immersion.

Make my franchise FEEL like a franchise. I want to see more stuff about whats happening around the league. More player analysis. Recaps, injury reports, start-em/sit-em's, highlights from other games, weekly shows, a "live" ticker to keep me up to date on what else is happening in my league while I play my game.

6. better negotiations maybe like Head Coach 09 but i want to be able to choose the length of the contract
7. A Draft like in Head Coach 09
8. you shouldn't be able to get every FA you want, things other than money should be a factor
9. You shouldn't be able to resign all your players before FA. Maybe make a category in FA (by category i mean like the way you look through postions, targets) with players from your team, that way you can resign them but they are also fair game for the 31 other teams.
10. Bring back Player Roles, Team morale (Team distractions, franchise qb's, etc.)
11. Waiver System
12. MORE CPU TO CPU TRADES
13. fix draft Trade Logic
14. Positon Coaches
15. Bring back the ability to switch teams midway through! I get sick of dominating with one team, in last gen i was able to switch to a crappy team and build them up, it was so much fun.
16. OWNER MODE, If youre gonna give us a yearly income and budget for stadium and coach signings we should be able to influence our income by changing prices, advertising, etc.
17. You should be able to build relationships with other teams GM's kind of like in the original Head Coach. For instance the more trades you make with one team the easier it becomes to swing trades in the future with them, but the more you lowball them they will be less willing to accept. This should be put in because look at the Matt Cassel trade

I'm sure there is more that i am forgetting but there is definately a long way for EA to go yet in the best feature of the game, IMO they should cut out superstar and focus more on Franchise, i mean honestly how many ppl play superstar? i played it like 3 times and got so bored with it.
I am under the same consensus

The one thing I would like to see that I don't see here is a working Hall Of Fame within the Franchise. I want to work to get a player inducted and then see them put into the Hall Of Fame if they are good enough. I would like to take a trip to Canton whenever I want and see the busts of all the current HOFers and see new ones made for the new inductees. Of course the busts do not have to be all that detailed as far as the face goes.

Also would like to be able to go into a Super Bowl History section and see all the past Super Bowls scores and the game MVP. Adding a new MVP every year so that you actually have more incentive to keep playing. I know Fever had this and it was awsome.

ding ding ding we have a winner. This is a must. I'm tired of just signing guys to fill out the rosters. What's the point of preseason with out cuts?

Re: Franchise Fanatics - What Else Is Missing?

I think it'd be great if players had "Personalities".

As an example...I sign a big shot WR, but I'm really struggling to get him the ball. And he gets upset, and demands more touches...or trade him. Now I wouldn't want personalities to dominate franchise mode, but at least have them be a factor.

I think this would add a nice bit of realism and needed depth to franchise mode. But of course be optional.
