Personally couldn't be less interested....but I understand this is a money grab. Gotta do what ya gotta do I guess.

Conquest Mode mentioned as well.
Not a DD player myself, but I'm sure some will enjoy these.

Not really interested in them but glad for people who are.

More please!

Sounds like it could be fun, but I will most likely pass.

if i can get someone to make a really sweet logo for my uniform in 16 this year, i will be in DD a lot more so i will probably atleast dabble into these 2 modes.

From the sound of it these modes don't seem like a money grab especially if Battle Royal is exactly like Madden's Draft Champions. You just fantasy draft a team and get rewards towards DD, I would assume, when you win.

These boards seem to get bitter about anything "ultimate team". Didn't some of you guys collect baseball cards when you were younger?

It is a fun mode and can be played online or offline and against your friends.

I definitely will be a franchise guy, but this is the only ultimate team mode I do enjoy. Props to SDS for being innovative and working hard this year to get us another great title!

Very excited for the mode. Potential to be lots of fun, something I focus on when playing video games.

Hoping this is a way to play with your DD team in offline games. I like playing online they improved the servers and online gameplay but with my mediocre wifi it's easier to play offline games but random games against CPU teams isn't as fun as this sounds like it will be if it's your DD team. Pumped for next week

I believe this is what Conquest mode is about, based on that description above. It seems like a single-player branch-off of DD.

So they're both just extensions of Diamond Dynasty? Dude...
 
# 13 chaz526 @ 03/04/16 11:23 PM
DD desperately needed a single player mode other than playing random CPU teams. This is great!

Yeah DD gets two completely new modes while other modes get overlooked.

This is amazing news. Madden 16's version of this game mode is the best new game mode in a sports game since Ultimate Team in 2009.

As a Diamond Dynasty only player, this could not please me enough.

I don't play games on-line but I play DD just for the card collecting and trading. Last year I spent more time on the card collecting then I ever thought I would when it was announced.

I did see the fact sheet for Online Franchise! It was awesome!

1) Online Play Stabilized
2) Score Posts fixed
3) Remains untouched for 3 years

This would actually make me very happy as someone who is interested in Diamond Dynasty and building a squad but has little desire to play random strangers on the internet.

One thing I bet (unfortunately) is that conquest mode I doubt will be able to use broadcast or hybrid mode. I really hope im wrong... I want to see my team in all its glory! or you know make expansion possible.
 
# 20 BrianU @ 03/05/16 03:47 AM
Why would the draft mode be single player only? Hopefully just botched wording but I really want that mode to be h2h also! Guess we'll find out Monday
