Madden 2010 News Post

For those looking ahead at roster and ratings updates for Madden NFL 10, here’s the current plan:

Week 14: Friday December 11, 2009.
Wild Card Weekend: Friday January 8, 2010
Super Bowl Weekend: Friday February 5, 2010

As we have mentioned before, if the Madden team determines that major changes have occurred in an off week of our plan, we will make an unscheduled update.

As the team is already knee deep in the next game, I know that spreading these updates out is not the ideal scenario for many fans. Please know that we do continue to monitor the forums, for both general comments as well as ratings and roster suggestions. We realize that with ratings changes, it is impossible to make everyone happy … just as we know that not everyone is going to be happy with the schedule that I outlined above.

Many of you pointed out that more than anything else, you simply wanted us to let you all know what the schedule was going to be. That is the purpose of this post. I can tell you that moving forward, we are looking at a few different plans for how rosters and ratings will be handled. Some of that planning is based specifically off of ideas that have been suggested right here in the forums. More on that as we get into the off-season.

Thanks…

No, no you won't. Because see the last update broke an advertised feature of the game, and you have done NOTHING.

This isn't the first time create-a-player was broken, but instead the SECOND time. Not to mention, for the second time, the problem has gone UNACKNOWLEDGED once again. If it's still broken come the next update, will you release an unscheduled update? No. No you won't. And a broken feature is definitely a "major change."

Thanks for being decent (for once) and telling us outright that roster updates won't be weekly (or even bi-weekly). This will help many of us a great deal in deciding our next Madden purchase.

Keep doing what your doing Madden team and the heck with all these haters who will only accept perfection......Which is virtually impossible in video gaming !!

I realize this and I know it's not easy making a game that's going to appeal to both the SIM & arcade crowd.....Afterall there are sooooo many out there that claim that they are SIM, but there not even close to true SIM

IMO ......It's all a matter of how you play this game and right now I have a buddy of mine who I play all the time and we both play it like a real game of NFL football and we both get our SIM fix out of it.

Again it might not be perfect, but sooo what !! I'm having fun with it and it's easily the best Madden yet......Which it's suppose to be .....RIGHT !!

Thanks EA

The create a player issue will be fixed in this update.

That's good to hear, but since we're going to be going months without updates now, somebody has to make sure it doesn't get broken again.

I'd think if it happened once it wouldn't happen twice, but it did. Three times definitely ain't farfetched if nobody is paying attention.

If you are afraid it will break again, then don't dl the roster. It's that simple.

Almost as simple as the simple-minded comment you just made...

How about, EA stops breaking an advertised feature that I payed for? That's the logical way of handling it...

Or you could be right! But then I want a check in the mail for the full purchase price of the game, they can keep the tax. Because see then I've payed for a feature that, effectively, doesn't exist. Then, that makes me the idiot...

Nice try, but renting was an option.

The commericial may say weekly updates, but a few weeks ago we learned on OS that the rosters were not going to be coming out on a weekly basis.

Now, I stand corrected and this is mostly directed to Potiequete(sp) if Create a Player worked out of the box and in subsequent roster updates became broken.

I totally understand where you are coming from and the renting comment I take back from a few posts ago.

Let's hope it works this time.

IMO having a scheduled time for roster updates is cool...but ya'll need to adopt the system that NBA Live has...weekly DNA...this way progress will continue throughout the season...

Uhm, really?

When was the game released? August? And A FEW WEEKS AGO they told us there's not going to be weekly updates.

That's November. 3 months after they released the game and advertised weekly updates as a feature.

We've been (once more) totally bamboozled by EA.

And whoever it was, please don't start saying things like

"keep doing what you're doing, EA, they can't demand perfection from you, after all perfection is nearly impossible in video games."

They advertised it, so I want it - after all, I paid for their product; and if that's not worth something, I don't know what is - I might as well flush my money down the toilet.

Ah, don't use create-a-player much huh?

Yes, it started out working just fine, but has been broken twice by the updates, and they're not at all quick to fix the problem.

They've already slapped us in the mouth by telling a lie about the weekly roster updates, I won't willingly be slapped again.

And for the sake of EA, you'd be a wise company to either stop being so lazy, or stop saying things that aren't true. I don't know how long you think you'll continue to get away with the false advertising that often involves Madden. Year in and year out you consistently piss off incredible numbers of people by not doing even the simplest of things, and that's bad enough as it is. Giving people legal grounds to embarrass you isn't a smart business move, and it's plainly obvious all you care about is your business.

Can you guys at EA please update the rosters for online franchise? I've been waiting to start one but I don't want to use the rosters from September.

Would you have bought the game if weekly roster updates were not promised? The reason why I ask is because I feel that weekly roster updates are more important in the early part of the season vs the back end of the season. Most players like Rice for the Ravens we won't know anything about until the mid part of the season and beyond.

That's just my opinion, though. Others may not share that and feel the need for weekly roster updates.

I think that every three weeks is asking a lot because of the number of players per roster, and the fact that you are only dealing with three games!

I can tell you this, Miles Austin is not in any of my franchises, because he waited til mid season to break out and I am not starting over just to incorporate him into my franchise - online play now mode sucks anyway because of all the cheese you have to put up with so how would weekly updates even help anything???
some people actually do play online still and would like to use there correct favorite team
