Madden NFL 13 News Post


It looks like the Madden NFL 13 title update #3 change log has been edited.

According to the official website, changing offensive and defensive schemes in offline CCM is available now, but online CCM will get a patch on the 19th.

This was nowhere to be found, when title update #3 details were released on October 3rd.

To avoid any confusion, I wanted to make sure everyone saw this.

Should be noted that you have to start a new CCM for these to take affect.

Are you sure? I remember the EA Community guys saying that you won't have to start a new CCM for the patch, except for position changes.

I saw where the guy in the impression thread said that the @EAMaddenNFL account on Twitter told him we'd have to restart for this to work.

However, I went back and looked up that account's history from the last few hours, and I think it's apparent that the account tweeted out some misinformation. It replied to several tweets saying that CCMs would have to be started fresh for the patch to work, and that's obviously not the case. I think whoever is running that account just had some bad information.

I'm too deep into my offline CCM to restart, but I can tell you that the schemes dont change with existing created coaches, you "can" change them but as soon as you exit the scheme screen they revert back.

Let me clarify, as I did some tweaking in a test Offline CCM just a little while ago.

Here's what you can change whenever you want:
Offensive & defensive schemes

Here's what you can't change once you've created your coach:
Default playbook for offense/defense

The later doesn't appear to be a HUGE deal because you can always change which playbook you're using before starting a game. Kind of a pain in the ***, yes, but still you can work around it.

In the test Offline CCM I was messing with, my schemes were saving just fine. Not sure what you're talking about there. I trust that it'll work the same way for Online CCM's (of which, I'm in my 6th season so yeah, not restarting), once the Online CCM update drops on 10/19.

In that screen shot, doesn't John Madden look a little too well hung? LMAO

Which menu do I go to to change these in offline CCM? Do changes affect playcalling with Gameplan?

Once the coaching schemes are available in online CCM, Will I need to restart my CCM to be able to change the schemes? Thanks!

How did you get your schemes to save? Mine always reverted back as soon as I left the screen, even if I saved from that screen or after, it didnt matter. Are you on 360 or PS3?

The scheme players are suited to doesn't change just because you change the scheme you want

I'm in the same boat as the above poster that said schemes won't change in an existing CCM. I started my CCM of course on launch day, or a couple of days after, I can't remember, and when I try to change my scheme as a head coach, exiting the screen just reverts back to the previous setting. Now, I'm only in year 2, and generally lose interest after the first year, but this years Madden has me hooked, to where I want to see this thing through for once, and not just play a season and a half, or whatever I normally do before starting fresh again. Kind of a bummer when I'm Scouting or looking at resigning, or signing players, and see that most of the players I'm looking at are labeled as a "poor fit" scheme wise just because I picked some funky scheme upon starting lol.

It's the 19th.

Anyone get this update yet?
 
# 19 tfctillidie @ 10/19/12 11:05 AM
one of the guys in my league confirmed he could change his schemes today.


this also kills the suggestion in this thread saying you need to start a NEW CC.
