We covered everything from Gameplay,franchise,PA,hand towels....what about Online?

I play 95% of my games online and ever since Madden 2004 things have been going downhill for the online portion of Madden.

Back in Madden 2004 Users were able to do the following in online games...

-Play 5 to 15 minute ranked games
-Choose weather
-Choose wind
-Choose stadium with classic stadiums available
-Choose jerseys
-Able to see who was playing who, what quarter, and time left in the game


Most of that stuff we can't do now and it is very aggravating to us online players. Each year I ask for the devs to give us the OPTION of having those things in future maddens but its always "AHH we will see about it next year".

What I don't understand is why most of that was taking out of the online portion of the game. NOONE complained about any of the above so why take it out? I had people scared to play me in the Germany stadium back in 2004 lol.

We still don't have fully functional online leagues with Full player stat tracking. We've seen the same ole same ole in regards to the online aspect of Madden for the past 5 years. Lets see something innovative for a change regarding online.

I know its probably to late now but SPICE THINGS UP FOR GOODNESS SAKE...lol

Im done...

I agree that it needs some work, but I think this year they are (or at least need to) focusing on getting the base game working properly

They said that the earliest we'll get on-line info will be E3.

The only nugget that was dropped was that you will now once again be able to save your on-line depth charts.

Re: We covered everything from Gameplay,franchise,PA,hand towels....what about Online

Online overall is a JOKE. Aside from the very small SIM/str8 up crowd, the majority is a bunch of jokers. I think the overall look/feel of online play is not taken seriously. Why should they have REAL online leagues with full player stat tracting etc.?

My point is, i think they realize online play overall is pathetic. If they can figure out a way to match good players with good players and have cheezers get their own server then maybe it will get a serious look. But as of now, the community for madden OVERALL is the WORST online community when it comes to overall play and sportsmanship.

For every good game you get, you have to wean through several exploiters/cheezers/quitters. It has become a choir and is no longer fun. If you like playing opponents and have to resort to their tactics just to play the game power to ya, i have had my fill with that crap. Nobody wants to play FOOBALL anymore. It has now become who can do what to another player that DOES NOT EXIST in the real sport.

I think i am just fed up with sports games overall online. I have my 6 or so close friends to game with online and there is always head to head and i am fine with that. Online is a joke like the majority of the madden community (no offense to the few GREAT opponents out there and on here.)

Agreed.
Very very little information have been told to us "online players".............I hope some of our demands can be answered or even addressed.

I am fed up just as much as you are.......

I understand where you are coming from. I do the same as well, play with trusted friends. However, it is not fair to us honorable players "Non-Chessers" that our demands do not get answered or even addressed. This area needs to be corrected just AS MUCH as hand towels, franchise etc. I felt that the online topics been ignored for a while now. Separate lobbies, fair-play, customizations etc. Improvements need to be made!

Will they?????
