Sorry for my english (i'm italian), with pitch i would mean "court". Sorry.
I agree, and is say also that with a huge competitor, also Nba2K series will improve less than it could
sactown_13 on August 20, 2016 at 05:35 AM.
WTF is a "pitch"? Messin with ya brother. I agree with the player sizes on the court. My only argument would be "Live" hasnt competed since 2005? Gameplay rules. EA couldnt find that in basketball. Which sucks, we need competing titles.
Barbatrucco on August 20, 2016 at 03:04 AM.
@sactown
I think the issue, until now, was still open. I mean that Nba Live there still would have employed many years to reach Nba2K but at least had a look on which was superior to Nba2K — the perfect proportions between size of the court and the players and graphics.Now that this aspect on which work doesn't have it anymore, why Nba2K the drew. In my opinion, Nba2K with the move to take as example Nba Live in the proportions between the pitch and the players gave checkmate in Nba Live

I think it was closed when NBA Live said they were going to mobile. Maybe even before that. With that being said this is something the community has been wanting for years. Just hope it is across the board, Paul George still looks quite large.
Not enough of a pic IMO. I think the negative press on Jimmy Buckets has scared them into showing less.

Great throwback blog post! Although I didn't start playing NCAA football until a few years after 2001, I was hooked the instant I put the disc in. I really remember thinking how far that college football had come every year for gamers and what the future was going to hold. Being from Kentucky, I always had a long road in football but March Madness gave me a chance to take out the woes of a long suffering football fan (as we are referred to by a sportswriter) on the rest of the collegiate basketball landscape. I specifically remember how I thought the last version of March Madness was playing similar to NBA Live and they had hit a stride. Then along came Ed O'Bannon, the car salesman who for some reason thought his likeness was being used as a UCLA player. Ed O'who? Really, I was bummed that O'Bannon pushed such an issue and to be fair, the players weren't looking like themselves in his days. It's sad that the student athlete, who has no say in these issues and receives no royalty for their images/likeness being used, couldn't even play as themselves in a video game. I remember reading and hearing that a lot of college players enjoyed NCAA football and basketball. I play NBA 2K16 and now just thought about how epic football or basketball would be at this point. Maybe one of these days....

If they do CPU vs CPU Connected Career, you better believe that I will build a league, website, stats, all of it!

I'm still sitting on my 360, but once i do an upgrade, i would totally up for an online cpu vs cpu league. love the idea of it.

FINAL: Outside of the Top 5, numbers have dropped quite a bit across the board. Other than that, not much to report other than check out the numbers and make your own projections!

With endgame nearing, I won't be posted these during the event... unless there's a high demand that I can see in the OS threads! Otherwise I'll do what I have been doing the last few RC where I post final data sometime before next RC.
RoDogz17 on August 11, 2016 at 03:06 AM.
Still waiting for a decent Superstar Mode in MAdden,, CFM is absolute garbage,, NBA 2K has MyLeague, MyGM, MyCareer where Madden simply throws everything into one mode called "Connected Franchise.." Lazy as hell..

I say by Madden 2020 lol
poulka on August 10, 2016 at 06:20 PM.
I agree with you. Now I have to admit the team this year is trying to get somethings better. But you hit the nail on the head.

Three areas of improvement madden needs like right now,

1. Animations, collisions, when playing NBA 2k the game immerses you will all the different out comes you can have with players, the ball, the court, and basket. No two games seem the same. Imagine that in Madden in a sports were collisions are welcomed and enjoyed by the fans. That would tremendous immersion to the game.

2. Actually only going to be one other aspect that bugs the mess out of me. Weather and lighting, we have racing games with 20 to 40 cars racing on a track that has dynamic weather and lighting. Imagine a Madden game where you have to watch weather forecast leading up to weekly game to determine your gameplay. Weather and the NFL go hand in hand some of the most memorable games in history involve weather. Ice Bowl, Fog Game, Tuck Rule game the list goes on. But in Madden none of this is possible because we have the same type of weather like rain the whole game no variance like drizzle, blinding downpour, fog etc.

Actually thats how i play madden i wish we could start a franchise league of cpu vs cpu with the users only managing and calling plays that would be awesome for me. We should find like players and start an online franchise.
Ha, Hopefully 2k brings it for defense and online this year,,
thescoop on August 9, 2016 at 09:09 AM.
Oh yeah. Then you could re-create the Major League roster.
89-94 Cleveland Indians would make my day as well.

Yep with you man, buying a next gen box because they brought CPU vs CPU back. Sim sports all day!
edgevoice on August 8, 2016 at 02:13 PM.
I have my roster organized by position and depth chart, written on a tablet. I use a highlighter to shade blue chip players, solid starters, players on the rise and those that are diminishing. It helps me to quickly see the positions that need help, and the players who would most benefit from training.
Something epic
I definitely think something like this would be a nice addition to the Madden interface

Check the forums. CPU vs CPU is back.

Turn coach mode on in options, set cam to broadcast, call plays then don't touch anything.

tnorton3 vs punx317

TNORTON3 got on top early and dominated me with carrasco winning 8-2. We had a bit of lag but he's a straight up good guy, no cheese and we had tons of fun. I'll try to upload the highlights but I'm not good at technology
juicey79 on August 3, 2016 at 03:38 PM.
Yeah you gotta fix the great players
MarkWilliam on August 3, 2016 at 08:20 AM.
With the way 2K markets, its amazing that this leaked (or anything for that matter)....
Firstly I am an OKC fan. I won't be using Golden State (I did in 2K16 at times for fun) and OKC just got a lot less fun to use.

KD weakened the league in my eyes and I'm sure in many others aswell.

Made a power house stonger though. So there's that.
PSimp21 on August 3, 2016 at 05:14 AM.
I agree. I loved playing that year with Nebraska and Eric Crouch

Great ideas to say the least. I like the idea of actual minor league parks and rain delays (which they mention this year, but of all the rain games I have had, I have never seen one cancelled or delayed. A day-night double header would be interesting. The Single A teams/rookie league would be a great starting point for Road to the Show and Franchise play to see how these players develop.


Yes, the same line after line drives me crazy over the course of the season and by the end I am ready to disable the commentary. Needs a fix here for sure.


Old timer teams would be great or even an entire season from a particular year and allow you to replay it. This feature could be an add-on like they do for Battlefield and other games. Just purchase a season that you want and replay the 1927 season with a team(s) or like you mentioned the 03 Cubs - What could have been.


One thing they need to fix first and foremost is game play. Come up with some simulation sliders that resemble true game play as to close as you can get it. There is too much slider chasing year to year which is evident with the amount of posts in the slider forum here. Graphics are great, but game play needs tuned. I have come up with a set of modifiers which apply prior to the start of my game and they change game to game which presents a new challenge each game. I no longer have to slider chase. This has been my major complaint for years with Baseball and Football both Madden and NCAA when they used to that. EA puts so much in to graphics they have left the game for the customer to figure out - not right in my book and it goes to show they care more about graphics which yes are close to being as real as they can get than actual game play. It appears they take little or no suggestions in this field and each year customers and true baseball fans after left to test countless numbers of hours to get a slider set that offers them a challenge and is in line with realistic statistics and game play.


EA needs to look to Operations Sports MLB Slider forum for advice and technical expertise for MLB 17 to fine tune its game play. I would be more than happy to help out I am sure with many others to get this system right.

I agree the graphics are tough to get by,but it's crazy that a game made in 2000, has a better game engine than NCAA 2014, about the only thing 14 has is life like graphics. If they could take the game engine from NCAA 2001 and put that in 2014 plus the playoffs and the momentum Meyer wow need I say more. The broken slider system and arcade play have been the down fall of all football series. When you have to play on Heisman and lower the sliders so far down for example fives, tens, or zeros there's an issue with the game engine. It is obvious he is testers have no idea what true football simulation resembles. It appears that all of their efforts go into making outstanding graphics to amaze and suck in all their customers. In turn they put little or no effort into true gameplay and it looks like they place it on you the customer to figure it out with custom sliders. It is evident from the amount of posts on Madden and NCAA sliders forum that is a broken system because everyone has a different opinion on which sliders work the best. EA I am sure gets plenty of suggestions each year, but it appears they take no advice by putting out football games with excellent graphics and poor game play.
