No Named Rosters Online in NCAA Basketball 09 (Pasta Padre)

Looks like we can't play NCAA Basketball 09 online with named rosters.

Quote:
"Now comes news via attendees of the recent community event such as Chris Jacobs of NCAA Strategies and Shawn Drotar of 5WG that despite allowing named rosters to be shared through the EA Locker those rosters wonít carry over into online play. This is a departure from what has been the case in the past and continues to be with NCAA Football. It is especially perplexing given that the last two years March Madness has gone as far as basically providing a roster update at tournament time which was unprecedented for a college game and also was the first to allow sharing of rosters from user to user in 07. It gave the sense that there was some more leniency on the basketball side compared to the football side. Whether this was an NCAA mandated move or just something they couldnít get to work for some reason is unknown."

I gotta admit, no online dynasty or season feature really hamped my excitement for this game... I was reading teh changes they are putting into it, but I'm almost BEYOND normal dynasties at this point after seeing how much fun I'm having with NCAA Football this season.

This game is STILL being treated like the "red-headed stepchild" of EA Sports. After putting named rosters in the NCAA Football series online, and having online freakin' dynasty in NCAA Football 09, there is not really any excuse for not having either in NCAA Basketball 09. College Basketball is one of the most recognized, popular, fan driven sports in the USA and EA just doesn't seem to get it.

The argument that the game doesn't sell enough to warrant the kind of effort that NCAA Football gets is hogwash too. If MORE effort were put into the game, then more people would buy it. I can see why they quit calling it March Madness, because the game has the stigma, and rightfully so, as being a subpar series.

I know there are supposedly a lot of improvements in the game this year, but the news right now has me looking forward to updated roster for CH 2K8.

Re: No Named Rosters Online in NCAA Basketball 09 (Pasta Padre)

Wow, I LOVED CH2k8, but I had finally accepted reality (that it wasn't coming back) and planned on buying NCAA 2009. No name rosters online is an absolute dealbreaker though. No chance I pay for this crap. WTF EA?
