Madden NFL 16 News Post


EA Sports has released another update for Madden NFL 16, introducing a brand new mode to Madden Ultimate Team - Salary Cap Ranked Beta, check out the video here. It's slowly rolling out to everyone now. Make sure you download it and post your thoughts.

Quote:
Salary Cap Ranked Beta is not just a new game mode, it’s a fundamental change that is felt throughout the entire Madden Ultimate Team experience by assigning a Cap Value to every player and redefining how to assemble a lineup. This is being referred to as a “Beta” because of the size of the feature and the timing of when we're releasing it. When we ran the Madden Challenge on Draft Champions Ranked, we heard your voices. It was clear that there was a major appetite to support competitive games in the Madden Ultimate Team structure. We asked our Continuous Development Team if we could develop Salary Cap Ranked in time to release it during the Madden NFL 16 cycle. The answer was a resounding “yes, we can.” The word “Beta” certainly does not reflect the quality of the feature. However we are anxious to hear what you think and what kind of improvements you would like to see in the future.

Before we go any further, I do want to make it clear that the traditional way of playing MUT has not changed or been excluded. You can still play with the full lineups that you are accustomed to in Solo Challenges and Seasons H2H play. Salary Cap Ranked Beta is simply a new test of mastery as you’ll need to be equally as skilled with building your lineup as you are with playing with them on the field.

Umm...is anyone having issues now with false starts? I downloaded the update, and now every time the CPU does a fake snap, the entire OL jumps and gets a false start. I thought it was an odd glitch, so I quit and started the game up again, and it's still happening. Happens every single time the CPU QB does a false snap. I saw the CPU get 8 false starts in a row. Didn't happen this morning before the update was downloaded on two games I played. If this is true, then the game is unplayable until they fix it. Will keep testing it.

Yes I second the excessive false starts also....What helped me; I moved false start penalty to 49 it's a bit better...

Hi, thank you for your response. Yes, it's still happening. I uninstalled/reinstalled the game and tried new franchises (in case it was a corrupt save-game file), and nothing has changed. Still getting false starts with every fake snap. This is all with offline CFM and with having the False Start slider at 60. I'm going to test moving False Start to 50 and trying online CFM also to see if it's happening there, as well.

I am at all default sliders and playing MUT...False starts happen still.
 
# 9 picker19 @ 04/26/16 05:22 PM
So far, I've played both offline and online CFM games, and definitely having False Start at 50 has made a big difference, but it still occurs where the whole line CPU o-line jumps. But the frequency for me is much lower than FS = 60. Also, I have not seen this happen with the USER.

Thank you all for the feedback. We are definitely looking into this False Start thing.

Please let me know if you guys see any other weird stuff after you've downloaded the new update. Thanks again.

Now that the false start thing has been taken care off, I'm absolutely loving this mode. I had quit grinding and collecting in order to play DC full time. I even sold off my 89 OVR team, and was sitting on almost 800k in coins (dumped way too late, as prices have bottomed out).

But the MUT Salary Cap flips the script. When it was announced I stopped selling all of the cards I got from winning DC games and have been building my MUT team back up.

I have an 85 OVR squad, but I needed to do some tweaking to get under the cap.

My first couple of games were pretty great. The MUT H2H faithful have to hate this. Not only is everyone even now, but we get to craft our team so much more and stick with our normal play books. The normal BS MUT guys got away with because of their overpowered teams no longer works. I won both games. In one my opponent scored on his first drive with just three passes. But I adjusted, and beat him 20-14 in a tight defensive battle.

Right now I am going through the AH and trying to buy up Chiefs players at positions where I can upgrade, or use the downgrade to upgrade elsewhere. I won't have a full Chiefs squad, this mode provides a method in which you could build around favorite players without forcing you to dump them to keep getting better.

This feels so much more like my team now.

It may be the only way I ever play Madden again.

There is no way the run game was ruined. If anything, it's overpowered. I have been running with Carlos Hyde with a lot of success. I feel like the passing and running is really balanced now. You can't get away with doing too much of either.

I played a game of this last night. The guy I played was actually pretty solid. It was a fun game. I won 24-21 with a FG as time expired.

The salary cap really adds fun to it.

I prefer CFM but, this is fun for some quick games
