I get the impression I'm the only one but I really enjoyed the radio show that they would do in the previous versions from a few years ago.
The star thing makes sense to me because there are some skills/abilities that certain players have that cannot be expressed through the skills ratings.
Wait for real? I remember they've used the same PA announcer since the PS2 days for the longest time. I gotta go check this out.
I've always said it's not really the commentary, but how the developers construct the audio calls. It's so robotic with Gus Johnson, Collins worth, Sims & Natz, as well as the current crew.
Yeah I agree. They can get Morgan Freeman & Sir David Attenborough to do the commentary but if the dev team just pieces together their lines without making it sound organic it’ll just sound like a piece.
2ks is sooooo much more fluid. The announcers cimentate on the current game, discuss a player or something random, then if you get a great dunk or play they will call it out with enthusiasm, and go back to commentating the game without any robotic change in tone.
I am one of the rare breeds who plays Madden 20 coins strictly for Franchise mode and the Fantasy Draft. Been doing it for 20 years. After drafting a team and playing 5 games last night, I noticed the following:- Franchise mode is very similar except that managers are now alerted before games on how confident they feel against the upcoming team and it's superstars. Very cool how you can now choose between a conservative, neutral, and aggressive performance. The more aggressive you pick, the more XP you earn but the harder the game play goals.
Love that the good rookies do not have a development trait yet visible until they play 500 snaps. Very cool feature! I also had a rookie message me saying that he wants to be great, and asked if I could involve him in the offense more.
I agreed, and got him the ball early and often. He balled out and earned 10,000xp and hid development went from a normal to a star! Absolutely loved this feature.
Having Vets on your team help tremendously. They now offer coaching to the young players and boost their rating because of it. What a realistic and great feature.
Dislike the crazy amount of hitsticks and fumbles. It is COMPLETELY unrealistic, and keep in mind we are playing all madden and simulation mode. There shouldn't be more than 1-2 fumbles a game MAX and the default settings on all buy Mut 20 coins still allow me to hitstick anyone I want, every play, with a guy like keuchly. I will definitely be adjusting the sliders. Maybe I need to protect the ball more often. If that's the case, then this gameplay may grow on me due to its realism and I simply need to hold RB every time I'm about to collide with a defender.
I would think you'd have to look at Streak Specialist and/or Route Technician, to have his dominant RR and catching stats along with the extra routes and boost over the top? That'd be the way I'd go.
He doesn’t get route tech as far a I see and he’s fully powered up. I am using Streak specialist, Post specialist, and now grab n go. Kind of unsure how grab n go works I’m just going to have to trust madden that he’s making quicker cuts. I put Mossed as his X factor. OBVIOUSLY. He’s balling out pretty hard.
