As Roadman said...very well put DC. [in it's entirety]

But I want to focus on this last paragraph. I see things pretty much as you do. I believe this years team did what they could. I think somethings were ohh...embellished a bit, but overall M10 is at least an improvement. From what I've heard. [didn't buy it]

However...yeah, there are some pretty glaring issues that remain, that can really spoil the game for many. And like you, I really need to have these "issues" cleared up before I invest any further in this gen of Madden.

I would love to hear a little bit of insight from one of the devs as to how the offensive line ratings are used and effect gameplay. Something so critical to recreating real football shouldn't be as seemingly unimportant as it seems to be.

Re: Ratings and The Easter Bunny

I wish this thread would get back on topic and we could get some more data on the difference between 99 OL and 12 OL. I'm sorry I don't have the time right now to do that though.

If we could get a Dev answer that would be even better though.

In FIFA, ratings matter. Now while it's not impossible to take a
Toronto FC squad and beat a Manchester United or Juventus,
more often than not, you will be on the wrong end of the score.
It'd be interesting to see what the FIFA devs could do with Madden.

Re: Ratings and The Easter Bunny

Interesting thread. Before we all jump on Ian it was stated that O-Line play was going to be a major focus for patch #2. This problem may have been identified during testing, and just not able to be fixed in time for the game going gold. While I see some interesting ideas on dynamic ratings or ratings specific to positions I don't think any of that will make it in to patch #2. However we should keep this thread alive for M11.

I have faith in Ian & Co just based on the leap this game (in my mind) made from '09 to '10. Its like a new coach for a bad team. You give him a few years to get it right. I think we owe it to ourselves, being hardcore Madden fans, and to Ian to give him a shot. This isn't to say that we can't be very tough on him, but have a little faith!

Has anyone seen answers on other boards to any of this?

Re: Ratings and The Easter Bunny

EA will fix this next year for sure!!!

Instead of fixing gameplay, my guess is that they will prevent people from editing ratings in the Roster file and changing player positions so a test like this cannot happen again.

This will be sad new low in football gaming if this happens...
