9. Overlay Ads
10. Line Play
11. Overlay Ads
12. Can't tell a difference between Defensive / Offensive Line Players.
13. Overlay Ads.
14. Passing Mechanics (can't place the ball / fire it in small windows)
15. Overlay Ads
16. Delayed Reactions to Moves by HB.

I agree, and it didn't lower the price of the game. That would have made it easier to take.

1. PROFILES!!!!

Remove the settings and franchise saves from the profiles,
let me load at least four at one time,
let me play profile A against profile B,
so my friends can save their damn audibles and not waste
7 minutes at the beginning of each game!
let me save it to an "EA locker" and retrieve it with a password
from another PS3 so when I go to my friend's house
I don't have to waste 7 minutes before we start each
game!!!!!
have the thing track my user stats vs the CPU, vs HUMs on my
couch and vs HUM cheesers online and have it track
my tendencies!!!

2. Menus

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD (or someone), GO BACK TO PS2 STYLE MENUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sick of holding a button, tapping another, while crossing my fingers on my left hand and curling the toes on my right foot while blind folded and and hopping on my left leg!!!

In other words the menus are ridiculous, I like the franchise menu where you can toggle by tapping the triggers, but the rest of the menus suck!!!


And yes I know these are not game killers for anyone, but they annoy me to death because they had it right on last gen and totally screwed the pouch moving to this gen! (just like the control layout, the D playmaker/ defensive assignment system, the play call screen, the speed/flow and fluidity of the game, and the entire franchise mode!!!)

Re: What are your biggest annoyances that should be fixed in madden 11?

Absolute musts for me: With year six of the next gen Madden series approaching, it still lacks the immersion of the PS2 days. It will take possibly a few more years, but I have a few major franchise requests that would make Madden 11 amazing for us offliners.

- Preseason cuts (Start roster at 75 or 70, make me cut down 3-5 weekly until I hit 53.)

-Working 8 man Practice Squad with ability to call a player up and Injured Reserve (Frees up roster spot AND cap space, so no more issues running out of roster spots for the updates because of IRed players.)

-Waiver claims, NHL 09 GM mode had this. Just a simple "__ has been placed on waivers. Would you like to make a claim for him?", with the player being awarded based on need and record.

-CPU trade offers during season, no matter how small

-Gameday inactives (45 man roster)

-Get rid of the roster limits. Minimum should be set to 1 of each, or just remove the limit entirely just so I may make my own custom roster adjustments instead of using Madden's outdated system

-DRAFT DAY needs to have the excitement of Head Coach 09. Either bring back the draft hub from HC09 or alter it slightly to fit into Madden visually. Also, regarding the draft, lift the 10 pick limit and allow trading of future picks to fully utilize the trade AI. If I trade up from pick 28 to pick 3 in the first, 9 times out of 10 I'm giving up my future 1st and more.

-Also, unnecessary but it'd be amazing if EA could do another Tony Bruno-ish thing. Maybe get someone from NFLN (Deion, Eisen...etc.) and do something special for franchise so I don't hate the soundtrack after the first month of avid playing.

-Give me ability to change the CAP face,. I got a bald Tim Tebow in my NCAA draft class.

----Note: If you're gonna tease the NFLN presentation, go full out. Give me Total Access, give me the TV broadcast hub, give me real NFL Network just like the ole nemesis gave me Sportscenter.
