Madden 10 Franchise mode improvements

10 posts in this topic

from the madden blog

Q: Since two-back systems are in vogue, will running backs split carries a la Carolina, Tennessee, etc.?

A: Yes. This is all determined by the RB sliders in your coach options. We have logic that determines how carries will be split later on in franchise. If you have two 90 overall running backs, they will split carries.

Q: Has anything been done to the logic to stop players from retiring too early?

A: Yes. The retirement logic has been tuned so that less 30-34 year old players with a higher overall rating retire. You’ll still see players retire, but if they’re any good, they’ll stay around a little longer.

BOA intro. Kinda pointless, but seeing the same intro with the same cars going by every stadium was lame. They did this to mix it up while you play through a long franchise mode.

have they not fixed unrealistic poo like Runningbacks getting 2500 rushing yards year after year or did that die with the old consoles (ps2, Xbox)? because I'm getting a 360 this summer and this will be my first taste of the "new" generation consoles.

Nothing was or will ever be worse than Madden 06 on 360. If you're wondering why it's specifically 360, it's because the PS3 was not out yet. The first taste of next-gen football was sour.

I'm encourage by the fact that one of the senior designers for the franchise mode was the lead on NFL Head Coach 09. HC was a great game with tons of depth for real football fans so I'm excited to see what he brought to the table. Some changes he made sound great but EA promised a great game each summer and it never happens.

I really hope the blocking improvements are real and it matters whether or not the defense is a 4-3 or 3-4 and I'd also like to see a lineman get double-teamed.

yes i would like it to be a game change on 4-3 to 3-4 teams...like being rated as a 3-4 DE and then going to a 4-3 as a DE and geting like 17+ sacks..when you need two diff skill sets as a DE

the RB slider is in 09, but it doesn't work. I set mine for 55/45, and Stewart would only get 1 or 2 touches a game. I just change packages to get him in more now.

thing I don't like about the mode is that it doesn't incorporate anything. I went all the way through, and every game looked pretty much the same. The only difference between the Superbowl and any other game was that they picked an MVP. No graphics of trophies, celebrations, etc. Pretty disappointing.

this is true i set my slider like that..and it does nothing and in the game peppers is not that good his speed is high but his strength is low so he does not get good pressure all the time.i get more sacks from kemo and taylor

i also want it to be more detail for the 3-4..i know guys that go 3-4 with the panthers and dominate...even when we do not have the skill set for a 3-4

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
