Re: Custom Playbooks

I'm actually worried about custom playbooks being used in online ranked matches and in online franchises.

I get the fact that everyone wants to set up their own playbook, but, in madden it wouldn't be very much fun or "sim" to try and defend the same couple of money plays all game.

I would only agree if the feature includes the ability to create, meaning draw up, our own plays. Either way, the ability to formulate your own play-book , even if it's just selecting plays from different teams, is a great feature.

That being said, it means absolutely nothing if the game-play on the field is lacking.

This goes on now with the "simpler, deeper, quicker" playbooks. The game is only as SIM as the people playing. I am strictly online, BUT I have not played one ranked match because I already know what to expect. Most leagues banned the same PB's being used/you had to use your teams PB but to me that's BS. No two users will use the same playbook/plays the exact same way, hell as thin as the PB's were you couldn't help but repeat plays throughout the course of games.

Though with that being said I have reserved my gaming time to our OLF (as I will next year), and to my friends list.

Well said. I agree, real life playbooks and gameplans are pages and pages thick. Madden only really has a handful of plays and formations in the game. And the plays they do have are pretty much just cycled over and over again in different formations.

But yeah I totally agree, the game is only as sim as the people playing it. Like you I limit myself to my core group of guys that I play with in my leagues because I know they are sim unlike the ranked random matches.

Re: Custom Playbooks

There's an indicator in the teaser that suggests this is the year for Custom Playbooks...

As you watch the teaser, look in the top hook of the 2. There's a blue section with "Custom Playbook" and the Jet Sweep is checked.

Looks like GOOD NEWS for folks like me that were previously stuck with a pre-configured playbook with 200 plays we'd never touch.

YAY
