Exactly.

Imo...no way EA would ever, and would be foolish, to include that many gamers in person. Let alone the expense.

I agree Cap...it would most likely be chaos. Too many chiefs.

Now cmon CB, you know that would make too much sense for this forum nowadays.

Wow... 8 of us cost EA somewhere around 10-15 grand (I'm figuring based on my airfare and hotel), you think they're gonna even consider bringing 100? To be honest, I think 8 would be more effective.

Tell you what... here's an idea for 11... release a preview of Madden 11 about 1 year in advance. It'll be costly, so charge 60 bucks... that way you know the people testing it actually care, ya know? Then, give 'em about 4 months with it before you start talking about 11... once you do, see what people think of that previous and go from there

Seriously, though, 100 people... how do you manage that many? You'd have an auditorium full of people, all trying to be heard. Impractical if it was cost effective.

I'd be happy with the same 8 going.

You could get 4-5 wall projection systems going on and have each one with one person playing and have say 8-10 people writing notes about what they saw. After an hour or two each gamer would get to switch out and play so that way everyone got a feel for it. It could be done but Im not sure it would be practical becasue some people are more demanding then others....

You'd get players who wouldn't want to share to controller.

But 100 people at a community day seems kinda insane. I imagine that getting feedback from 8 people made the devs heads spin, especially if they were getting called over to the builds and getting "Fix this...This needs to be like this.." etc...imagine that x 12. They'd have to have an email system set up just for that day to organize all the feedback, so that the devs' heads wouldn't explode.

I'd like to see a few changes (not because the people brought weren't up to it, but to get a fresh face or two in their with the existing guys), but all in all, I agree, even if I am one of the replaced. There's something to be said for having been through that once. We all came back with pretty firm ideas on how it could have been done better, both on our end and by EA.
