Madden 19

So EA did their E3 presentation and Madden 19 is going to be on PC again. First time in 11 years. Wow.

Very curious how they're going to handle modding. The #1 thing that modders will try to make is...well...the NCAA. If it's unregulated, you'll probably see every single FBS school within a month. I guess EA could technically wave their hands and say "Well, we didn't make those teams or players, the guys at OS did".

And now I'm thinking of playing a game like Bama vs Clemson with updated graphics and the Madden interface/engine and I suddenly find myself covered in drool.

Frostbite is pretty hard to mod so we'll see how that works out.

it's late June and this thread has almost zero info.. seems like a really lack luster year.

I watched a video of someone displaying the new hit stick animation (from E3 or some show) and I wasn't too impressed. On one of the replays, on a kick off, the kicker came down and laid out the kick returner... so yeah If It's In The Game.. We'll put Whatever Else We Want In The Game... E..A.. Sports.

I don’t think Madden ever has a rabid fan base. There isn’t much to discuss until the game is out.

It's lipstick on a pig each year until the NFL does away with the exclusive.

I actually think this looks like one of the most promising in recent years. Looks like they have overhauled franchise mode, updated progression big time and have updated depth charts / schemes to fit the modern game. This will probably be the first one I'll buy in about 5 years

Frankly bringing it back to PC shows me they're interested in moving in the right direction.

I got invited to a 32 man league so that should be cool

If they work in recruiting then people might start reporting me missing and possibly dead.

I've gotten in the habit of playing Madden a bit over the last few years. Maybe an hour or two a week all told. I don't play online or anything. Predictably, I like to build franchises. Draft and develop players, install schemes, etc. I started playing it around Madden 25, three or four years ago I think. Sometimes, I just sim the actual games. It's really rewarding to rebuild the Jets or the Browns, and turn Christian Hackenberg into a star, or grow the Browns defense into a nasty Tampa Two.

I'm excited because franchise mode has been exactly the same since I started playing (and I'm guessing longer than that.) I even know all the menu sequences the first time I play the new edition. Now they're saying this is the year when they actually make fundamental changes to franchise mode. I'm looking forward to that.

Yeah WTF on Justin Evans?

And who the **** is Drew Ferris and why is he on the team?

Re: Madden 19

Wed Jul 11, 2018 4:15 pm

Apparently, he's a LS we signed to a futures deal in February. We should probably cut him immediately though if he's that bad. No use in bringing down the overall for 1 player.

Exactly. The overall team average probably dropped 3+ points. That’s unacceptable.

Glad to see Donovan Smith is rated appropriately.
