Wow! A full week after the 1st roster update, this sucks. Our online CCM is never gonna get started...

Seriously? I'm sorry, but that's simply a disgrace. What can be so hard about implementing an already existing roster in CCM? There's simply no excuse whatsoever that they were able to release a roster on Sunday, but it takes them almost a week to use the same roster for CCM.

Maybe they are adding the Week 2 updates in this one.

That's not really an excuse for not releasing week 1 rosters...

Wow, I love this game, have only a few problems with it, but I have to say that this is just ridiculous. Unacceptable man!

That's my hope. Sucks to have to wait, though.

I went to sleep last night thinking that "tomorrow will finally be the day I get to start my online CC. I cant wait til I wake up".

Today, I wake up and see that EA has let everyone down once again. Now it wouldnt surprise me if Friday they tell us instead to wait til the beginning of next week, and then at the beginning of next week, they push it back to Friday again.

This blows.

So incredibly frustrating... First we get a week *** patch and now this. I like CCM but at this point it doesn't seem like it was worth the trouble. Not very efficient if the have to do double the work for one week of roster updates. They really should have held off on CCM for another year until thy got it fully off the ground.

Now I just sit and wait until Friday to start a CCM that still needs to be patched anyway, all the while the clock is ticking down to oct.2, after which alot of us won't care about madden anymore anyway. SMH

But hey they already got my money and are enjoying record sales so jokes on me! Can't be mad at them though because it's a business and I'm a grown man and I know better....

I would like to know who is their boss cause man he needs a letter on how BAD the team is handling all this... First their secretive as if this was a CIA project ... Then they start acting like the GOV.ORG they pick and choose how were going to play from now on and dont give us the opt to Edit , or even to use the different rosters... So you now have two seperate roster updates coming this year ..First the (play now H2h) & then this is where the fun begins>>>> (CCM roster). It takes weeks to do anything with EA yet theres no excused other than "hey guys we did encounter a problem , were working 24/7 to fix this... Say something just dont look the other way and pretent is not there , what you think eveyones going to forget ?....This morning a EA person tweet the CCM would drop today then he was like IDK there looking into it , then it was "friday 14 th there nothing ya can do about it"..this is how i feel EA is treating me.

Its disappointing. Really, it is. With the lack of custom rosters and editing for CCM, constant, and precise roster updates are a must IMO. Now, here we are waiting until almost the start of week 2, to get week 1 rosters to start CCM. Crazy. It's the single most thing I think they really had to do in order to appease at least some of the people disappointed about no editing, just make accurate rosters, in a timely fashion. Because really, the sad thing is, after this roster update finally drops, most people will start their CCM, and I'd be surprised to see another CCM update really because it becomes almost irrelevant.

I guess the good thing in all of this is the updated rosters are at least here for play now modes, although it appears most people don't play that any longer anyways.

That being said, if the roster update is prepared quickly for play now modes, it's strange to understand it's this long for CCM.

Oh well, it is what it is I suppose. At least they did a good job IMO with the actual game play itself this year.

I think they want to have the ratings updated before they release it. Thats my guess. I can imagine the posts on here screaming "OH MY GOSH THEY DIDN'T CHANGE RGIII's RATINGS TO WHAT THEY should BE" and so on and so forth. Sometimes the disappointment of putting something off is actually better then the anger of what happens people view as being wrong. The only exception to that is the release date. People get really mad about release dates being pushed back, particularly in any sports game. Thats unfortunate, because I believe M13 should have been pushed back imo, but its not possible in a sports game shown by NBA live.

And is a possibility with these guys is like they want to feel Important & arrogant like there really nothing that can happen to them.
This is a CCm has failed , You now have to wait yet another week... then next week comes around and theres a new trans that Donny WILL Miss cause he aint Perfect...and there go another Roster update for play now & h2h... then we will be stuck with a old yet again CCm roster...WTH is up this doesnt make any sense..The fugging dynamic draft story mite be the delay but those players also have issues ranging from not waering correct equipment... FUG kids made this game seriously...

Well it may be more difficult because this roster update has to update contracts and things too. It's not just a port of all the ratings.

I understand what you are saying and I will not be as mad if the roster on Friday includes week 1 updates but I am not sure that is the case. Besides, at this point in sports gaming, rosters should be an easy process. They should have released CCM rosters when they did play/now rosters weekly like they have been doing for the past 4 years or whatever.

CCM is severely handicapped and I won't to enjoy it but C'MON MAN!!!

Whoever is running the show is downright laughable. First, lets restrict all player editing whatsoever. Ok, fine, we knew that. Then, lets release a roster update a week after the holiday weekend that most people would have liked to try and play. But lets not mention this can't be used for CCM until after its out. Oh, and you have to wait another week to start your CCM, but we'll wait until Tuesday to tell you. After the EA twitter account said, "should be available today." Friday, by any definition, does not constitute early next week. The lack of communication between EA and the consumer is atrocious. Many of us would have been well into a CCM if custom rosters because as we have seen with other titles, users get out updates a lot faster than the company. Instead, we are left with an incomplete product...again.

I'm not trying to bash the game, I do enjoy it even with its flaws. But as a company, if you kill any customization, you need to be damn well sure that the people you have working on these can hit deadlines. The negativity around the game this year stems from frustration due to the lack of transparency between company and consumer. Seems as if there is no accountability within EA for getting things fixed.

Oh you mean there actually updating the new contracts? also they just port .
 
# 19 bcruise @ 09/11/12 12:43 PM
I'm still curious how they intend to do roster updates for this mode at all. There almost has to be a second starting point option (after the preseason, in other words) because at this point cuts have already been made. Cut days are built into the game as a necessary part of the preseason, so I don't see how they could start you at the beginning of the preseason with an opening day roster.

I'm sure they've planned for that, but it's something I'll be curious about until the day the roster drops.

I know what you are saying, I'll just give the benefit of the doubt til we see the rosters. Its unfortunate. Rosters were an easy process in the old code. This is not that game, and apparently they haven't gotten it to be easy on this code yet for CCM.
