Madden 2010 News Post

Evening folks,

Wanted to take a moment to quickly provide some details on the roster update that's rolling out tomorrow morning.

Some time between 5:00 am and 8:00 am EST the new roster will be deployed. When this happens everyone connected to our servers will be kicked off. We chose this window because it's the time with the least amount of server traffic. When the rosters are deployed the server will be restarted, resulting in just a few minutes of downtime.

At around 10:00 am EST, we will deploy the same roster to our Online Franchise server. When this happens everyone connected to that server will be kicked off. After several minutes of downtime the server will come back online and all newly created franchises from that point on will use the new roster.

This roster includes the much hyped addition of Mike Vick and Brett Favre as well as many other preseason updates. We hope you all enjoy it.

Phil

I know you cant add the "roster update" into an existing off-line franchise. However, when the "patch" comes out, do we need to re-start our franchise to use it or will it automatically update into our off-line franchise?

i would like to know this too? I would hate to have to restart my franchise aftera patch is released.

Also, should we expect another roster update after pre-season? I plan to start my Online Franchise on 8/31.

Will Favre and Vick be added as Free Agents in Online Franchises that have already started?

I dont understand why people would restart their franchise just to have a player in it that will only be on the franchise for 1 year before retiring.

Who cares? It's their game, they can do whatever the heck they want.
