Knew this was coming but what about Signature ball carrying/running styles? What about improved Living Worlds with improved Sidelines? What about improved CPU AI logic? What about an improved Physics system? I'll wait to hear more info but I seriously hope these aren't the only improvements.

Gameplay stuff sounds good so far, can't wait to see how this will be implement in H2H games, although I hope it doesn't make offense too OP.

If there is no draft/big board... it angers me just thinking about it.

This sounds good so far, a lot of what we've been asking for. Lets try to be happy for 2 seconds about it before we find reasons to kill the game already. I'm sure we will hear much more soon. Good and bad.

Sounds promising.. Cant wait to see how it plays out. On the other end of things EA has a way of overpowering things so lets hope its implemented correctly..

THIS IS WHAT WE WANTED ALL ALONG! (hopefully they can deliver)

The return of the scrambling QB cheese!

Should be interesting. Total Control Passing is really nothing new but if it's re-implemented in a more realistic fashion it could be great. I'll be interested to see whether it still completely alters routes and how much 'psychic receivers' are still a factor. I'm hoping the new scramble controls are similar to the old Madden 2004 era scramble controls where you pressed a button to enter a true scramble mode.

The receiver/defender controls read like exactly what I didn't want to see but I'll wait and see on that how that looks in terms of AI and the interactions before judging it.

On-the-field cameras sounds like an immersion killer. Really hoping there's more to CFM than just new scouting and draft system. There is so much personnel type stuff that needs to be added and I didn't think there was much wrong with the scouting to begin with.

Could you elaborate on what you do want to see? And I'm 100% with you on the CFM topic. I gotta feeling we still won't have full staffs and practice squads.

You didn't wanna see contextual hand-fighting, variety of 2-man interactions at the catch point including PI penalties? Isn't this what we've been asking for, for years?

Sounds like a good building block. They also mentioned qb mechanics. We'll have to see how it looks while playing.
 
# 17 jbd345 @ 05/13/15 05:35 PM
That's all their is for presentation? I'll wait and see until they release a blog but, a little worried because a broadcast should be around the entire game, not one playmaker.
 
# 18 Oldschoolball @ 05/13/15 05:36 PM
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!! Can we please have a realistic kicking game. Make Longsnappers relevant. A starting tackle or guard shouldn't be your snapper.... at least not without terrible snaps. I hate to bring up 2k's All Pros kicking but it was pretty decent.
 
# 19 Focus10 @ 05/13/15 05:37 PM
We'll see if this can come into fruition.

Before people go ape-****, these are just "SOME" of the features. They aren't going to release every new detail about the game in one day.
