  1. The customization is impressive. Very impressive.
    One thing they have done that FIFA continues to lack in VOLTA is adding in real players on these teams and that's a great addition. Fifa feels fake with randomly generated players. This isn't my cup of tea necessarily, but it does look like they did a good job with it.

    Hope they have those features available in franchise mode for custom draft classes/create a player.

    I'm sure they won't and I'm sure it won't be available for coaches in CFM either, but i agree that it should be. With how little they added to CFM a small addition like that would be a back of the box feature to that team.

    So mouth guards are in The Yard, we better have those in create/edit player!
    We won't. Just another slap in the face.

    Crazy that this would be a back of the box feature but yes it's doubtful EA did anything or else they would have promoted it.
    BRO!! look at the customization! Im super hype for this. It looks way better than it does on mobile. I could shed a tear For once i can say EA actually put some work in. 2020 is very weird year I cant believe im hype for madden lol.
    Ooof, that was a painful watch.
    I can't believe someone could be so excited for something like this.
    Whatever floats your boat, but people like that are a death knell for Franchise mode going anywhere.
    As much as I love sim sports games I also love arcade sports games. This imo just looks bad. Doesn’t look fun at all. Something about it is off. Just looks like your basic Madden gameplay with extra laterals and less people on the field.

    As long as I can play vs CPU as much as I want (don’t like online play) then I’ll like this mode a lot

    Yea its offline and and online. The offline is very identical to nba live 19s world tour in the "The one" mode. That's a good thing.

    Sheesh. He's a content creator and part of the game changer community.
    Game Changer program hate aside, at this time Anto, QJB, Goodgamebro are all supposed appear excited about the game. It's his dang 'job' as a content creator for Madden.
    How long do you think you'd last as a Sales Associate if you show no excitement for the product you are selling??

    I can’t wait to hear what the excuse is if we aren’t able to put mouth guards on our players in franchise mode.

    Wouldn't even expect them to respond unless they get another public bashing on Twitter. Only if they get enough pressure will they add features like mouth pieces and the face editor in franchise... Shame that's the only way things can improve. #FixMaddenFranchise

    So mouth guards are in The Yard, we better have those in create/edit player!

    QJB just released some videos, one of them is a face of the franchise game w Bears vs Lions. Zero players on either team are wearing mouthpieces. Pretty much proves they are only available in The Yard. From what I can tell facial animation is disabled in The Yard mode, why they won’t do that in the regular NFL mode blows my mind. The players look like aquarium fish sucking in food, it just looks ridiculous.

    I’d say it’s such an oversight but it feels like EA does this stuff on purpose. They will add in the mouth pieces and face creator for another mode but not put it in the mode that people have been asking for them to be in. Basically it’s punishing people who only pay 60 bucks for the game.
    To put all of these customization options including mouthpieces in an entirely new mode while not making it available in franchise mode is straight up disrespectful to everyone that has advocated for these things all of these years.
    For EA to have these conversations for years on twitter and message boards about how they are working on getting these things in the game and to then only put it in the new mode shows an almost disdain for certain group of their customer base.
    I'm not an equipment guy in the slightest, so what equipment that is available doesn't matter to me personally, but man I feel bad for everyone that does care about the different equipment.

    It’s not the equipment that’s the issue, it’s the fact that madden is now basically split into 4 separate game modes that need to compete for development time. MUT, FOTF, SS KO, Franchise, and The Yard.
    There are 3 modes that use customized players why can’t they all use it?
    If mouthpieces are in one game mode how is it not an option in all??
    Why can’t the SS KO uniforms be used for relocation team?
    Its like they develop each mode independently like they are separate games.
    I agree 10000000% that Franchise gets the short end of the stick far too often, but we can't pretend like any mode outside of the Yard has Mouthpieces. MUT, H2H, SS KO - none of them have mouthpieces. It's a huge omission by the team, but it's not really a franchise slight.

    Most likely memory, the Yard has less players so they can use the mouthpieces. I agree though, it's BS, they need to make it work!

    Perfectly stated, I’m a bit ashamed of myself that I assumed when I saw mouthpieces in The Yard trailer it meant they would of course be in every customization area of the game. After 16 years of asking and being ignored, I should have known better, as an aside the arm sleeves are also NBA2k quality in Yard, and still painted on in the regular game. This leads me to believe outside of some physics/animation work, literally NOTHING was changed in franchise play now from 20-21. Almost the entire dev cycle was dedicated to Yard. It makes sense, we can monetize it so we r gonna devote majority of resources to it. Sad sad state of affairs for old school videogame football heads like us. Made the game as popular as it is today and as a reward we are completely ignored, ouch.

    I think that's totally fair. And to be honest I think they did a way better job with the Yard than FIFA did with VOLTA last year and this year combined, so they do have the ability to do a great job with something - even if it's not what we want them to focus on.
    One thing I'm taking away from this is that they wanted to get ahead of the non-simulation 2K game that's coming soon by further cementing Madden as a place for non-simulation football. By creating this mode and doing it well they're getting ahead of any potential challenge from 2K. Especially with this linking to the mobile game. It makes sense why they chose to add it this year specifically and why they devoted so many resources to it.
    They've shown that they have the resources to make a mode really good. And though it's not likely... they certainly have the ability to make franchise awesome if they ever choose to devote the same attention and care into it as they have with the Yard. I'm not getting my hopes up for that, but i certainly get why they have invested in the Yard this year from a business perspective and there's a silver lining that the team is capable of greatness if they have the dev time, resources, and actually care about the mode. Maybe one day they'll decide that mode is Franchise.

    I tweeted over to EquipmentGuru to ask about the painted on sleeves vs. The Yard Sleeves that are super realistic and clean. Waiting to hear back about that and the mouthpieces.
    Again - they're showing that it's possible. We just need to see them bring it to the rest of the game. Lack of Memory won't be an excuse in 3 months on next gen consoles.

    I’ve seen multiple EA devs asked directly about the new equipment and if any of it translates outside of The Yard, not one of them has responded. They’ve probably been told not to, I’m sure they know the flak that they are going to catch over it after the blowback from franchise being ignored. Kane seems to respond if you give a compliment on anything but holds the company line and ignores any inquiry at all into mouthpieces or regular mode equipment stuff

    Kane responds when he can, it’s clear that in recent times EAs company policy has been a lot less interaction online.
    I like the gameplay, just wish I could have it as a standalone with multiple season modes and real teams. Would be a pretty good modern take at "NFL Blitz" if they went that route. I always pick on EA because of their half sim/half arcade stuff. I actually would love to see modes like this included in all of their games (again with a possible DLC option to expand this mode with season mode/fantasy draft,create-a-team) as long as the real sport side actually started getting "sim" love you know? Would be a best of both world's imo. Make the real sport play more like the real sport, use these modes for the comp community who loves pop-culture and stick skills. 100% no problem with that direction at all!

    So can this mode be played with 3 human guys on each side of the ball online?
    Kind of like NHL EASHL's 3 vs 3's?

    I think you can go up to six guys on a side.
    Mode looks fun. Not sure why o many people that know they won't like it, watched the video and confirmed that, no, they don't like it, need to post about how much they don't like something they won't play.
    There are franchise threads. But, this thread is a good example of why they "handle" franchise and sim guys. They aren't making a game for you, and they don't care if you buy it. But they do want to be able to sell a game that people like without having to force their customers to defend liking the game.
    For me, The Yard looks like what I hoped they would do with KO Superstar, expand on the idea. I hope gameplay holds up. It looks fast and fun, but could get unbalanced really easily. That much wide open space can lead to a lot of long TDs that get boring.
    Its a mode you will need hands on to know if it feels right or not. But I love that they have it set in a way that we could see a Madden version of Court Battles from NBA Live's The One, which was my favorite mode in the game. I hope we see it at some point.

    It would really be a good time for EA to split the brand. Have your John Madden NFL Sim, then your EA Sports Football game for all the other stuff.

    If the new consoles do offer much more space and lightning-fast load times, I'd say now is the time to offer both your "NFL Blitz" and "Madden NFL" games in the same package like they did here. You'd get a lot less complaining as there would be something for everyone in each release.
    The Yard's customization options aren't for me, I know that, but I was having fun watching the gameplay. I could see myself running many many seasons of that if they offered a season mode/CaT/Fictional team league where I could manage the rosters, fantasy draft, etc.
    I think building these modes out even farther to truly target the barren wasteland that is the AAA arcade sports genre is great for the industry! NHL Hitz Pro is my favorite hockey game of all time due to it's simplicity and sliders available to tune the game in a more sim direction while keeping the game accessible. The pseudo-return of those games within EA's games, with a dedication to making the core "sim" modes more sim would be a best of both worlds. I hope this is the first step in that direction.

    You don't want them to do that. John Madden NFL sim would go the way of NFL Head Coach.

    haha I think I agree with you. However, if their "flagship" games focused less on extreme realism (super animation-based and sort of clunky results that happen because of it) and had a more "The Yard" approach (I know it's the same engine, just hear me out lol) while offering a good slider suite to tune speeds and success rates of various things like NHL currently has, I certainly wouldn't be mad.
    I think the AI/"realism" part of sports is what EA doesn't really care about. It's not marketable, so I don't really blame them. That being said, if they can make a really solid, fundamentally-sound arcade game that can be tuned for their "flagship" sports games, I'd probably end up playing the game even more than I do with these half-sim, half-"fun" games like Madden/NHL that they crank out now.
    The Yard just looks straight-up fun. There's no expectations of realism, and I'd love to have season modes and franchise modes in games that don't necessarily have many expectations of realism, but can certainly be more obtainable via offline slider edits if the user pleases.

    Several years ago, after realizing how frustrated I was with sports games, I decided to change my expectations. There is no AAA sports game that is actually a worthy sim. They all have serious issues, some more than others.
    But during that time I remembered how much I liked all kinds of arcade sports games though the years. Instead of placing a sim expectation on any sports game, I just look for fun. I'd credit 2K8 for a lot of this thought, as i ran n online 2K8 league for several seasons. We would just do an offline draft of legends between each season.
    Loved 2K8, but man that was a cheesey game. I swear so many games would hit the 4th quarter with a score like 21-17, and then end 42-41 because if you went for it, you could pass for TDs all day long in the game.
    Those 4th quarters were not sim. But they were strategic and fun. We were managing the clock, looking for ways to fake each other out, and so on. It just kind of worked altogether.
    Personally, I found The One in NBA live 19 to be about the best mode I've played in any sports game. It was varied with different ways to play, had an NBA side and street side, and the Court Battles I love. It's amazing how much more fun sports games became once I decided to embrace what they actually do well instead of harping on what they don't.
    KO Superstar was a blast as a pick up and Play Now game. You get to draft some guys, choose a style of play, and then play an OT game with rules that makes it even more tense. Throw in that the 3-6 guys you have drafted (you get three, but draft one more after each game, until you have six for the championship) and you start to feel like it is your team.
    Its fun to experiment with different strategies to build, especially based on what you know you can expect to face. I build my team to exploit weaknesses other teams allow themselves to have. But it needed a lot more to it. I hope The Yard has that.

    For sure, I think that's why people get frustrated with these games. I think they need to dumb the "sim" aspects down and and more sliders to control "realistic" success rates for people to mess with to find their version of "sim" you know (2k was great at this imo)? At the core, game should be fun and accessible. "sim" players should be able to change sliders to adjust success rates. Right now, seems like Madden is in this weird state of trying to be "sim" but then dumbing animations down to try and make a "sim" game more accessible, and in reality it just ends up being frustrating to play. Also, if the AI wont be majorly invested in, there's no reason to try and make a "sim" game. Make a fun game and let users customize, that's my take on what would make these games better. It'd be more like the PS2 days.
    Superstar KO was fun, but games were super slow loading and could be way too fast. I think the yard will solve some of that frustration.
    I'm liking the way this looks more than the regular Madden modes. The reason being is because Madden as a simulation is just not right and probably will never be right. Every year there's something (several things) about the game that are ruin the experience for me. Playing a mode that is not trying to be serious is what I actually want from Madden at this point since they gave up on NFL Street.
    I've lost all hope for the simulation side of the game.

    This is kind of the point I'm trying to make, cause I agree with you 100% haha. If they can make a fun game first (The Yard) then just use sliders to dial back success rates for their "sim" modes, I think users would enjoy those "sim" modes much more. Making a "sim" game is next to impossible, but if I have a lot of sliders and downright fun base game, I can make the game into what I consider to be a decent representation of "sim" (insert sport here) you know?
    I think all EA games need to go the 2k/FIFA route of AI player instructions/custom tactics because the dynamic AI is seemingly never going to be good enough. Give us much more granular, static control over our AI, and you'll start seeing much more realistic "decisions" than what their dynamic AI can do at the moment imo.
    Not trying to dismiss what you guys all seem to want (franchise mode improvements), but not everyone feels that way. Personally, I never play franchise mode in any game. All I do is play online vs other users.
    I'm an avid NBA 2K player as well and I've really really wanted a Madden game mode where I can create a player and use that player online... and here it is. I'm actually really happy with The Yard and looking forward to how it can be improved in the future.
    ODogg
    Most likely memory, the Yard has less players so they can use the mouthpieces. I agree though, it's BS, they need to make it work!

    Didn't they say the same about helmets in pro bowl? Until it was somehow magically added?

    That's correct. Doubt it is a memory limitation. Watch it won't be in next-gen this year also. EA barely touched franchise during the last few years. It's not a priority for them and they will do the minimal required only when there is a Twitter uproar.

    So the issue is, not a single other company is allowed to make an NFL game with a multi season franchise, draft, FA, etc.
    EA bought the rights to a whole game mode then has willingly made it the worst mode in the game.
    Even if you never touch the mode, you should see how scummy that is

    How did EA manage to screw this up. The whole time I thought it was 6v6 all humans. It's 3 humans 3 bots. Learn from 2K duh! How stupid...

    Bet you 2K makes a better Yard and does it the right way.

    It’s not really bots, you take control after you throw to one of them. Same way as franchise.
    3 v 3 is really the most necessary, with a smaller field it’s just not feasible to have 6 user defenders lurking sideline to sideline. I think 2v2 has really been the perfect balance for this game mode.

    3 v 3 is really the most necessary, with a smaller field it’s just not feasible to have 6 user defenders lurking sideline to sideline. I think 2v2 has really been the perfect balance for this game mode.

    The reason 2k's multiplayer is fun is because it's completely organic and no bots. Ik football is a different game, but woulda been nice to at least have this option. I think it'd be fun to try to line up to sack the QB or block a defensive lineman. EA is scared to push the envelope. Imagine an 11v11 game, that'd be ridiculous but fun and it can work with enough organized teams.
    Does anybody else find the running, tackling, general smoothness of the game in the yard much better than in normal play now or franchise? Idk what it is, but the animations the speed, the tackling all look and feel so crisp in the yard. Really impressed by it actually, but imo the base game doesn't have the same feel. Not that the base game is bad, just feel different. Am I crazy?
