  1. The good news is that we won't have 2 months of complaining about the game being hidden. The bad news is that we will have 2 months of complaining about everything in the game being underwhelming.

    I have no idea how you do this every year, Sage. I’m leaning toward reading the gameplay info and not coming back to this forum until release. It worked great for me with nba2k last year.

    LOL. Well the 2k forums are unbearable for me. I usually don't need to discuss that game though, because I usually enjoy it regardless(except 2k18 but that's a different story). These forums aren't as bad imo as some people feel they are. Either way the forums don't ruin my enjoyment of the games. It's mostly interesting for me.
    I think this is great they have a schedule when there going to release more info. Unlike other yrs were it would just come out of the blue. They seem to be way more organized with the new guy in town.

    no Longshot mode 2.0 for Madden 19 ? if not then that great because EA probably focus more on gameplay, presentation and franchise mode

    I thought the same thing too. I played the mode once and never thought about it again. I think either they scrap it and/or working behind the scenes for Madden 20 or they made slight improvements. They can't leave it as is. It's basically a campaign mode so it doesn't have replayability.
    But last year, they said there could be features from Long shot that could be added to CFM. Not sure what couldve been added besides drills and training

    i be surprised if longshot mode 2.0 is in 19 that mean it doesn't need blog for fans to know info on this mode. it is just story mode

    I think if it would be in 19, they would added the info around the time CFM info is released.
    But it would take so much resources and time to do a Long Shot 2.0. With them continuing on from story, it would have to be about the whole rookie season for it to be worth while. That would be better off as DLC
    I think if people think EA will throw every item this year into FM with a "balls to the wall attitude," I think they are in for a letdown.
    I would think there will be 3 or 4 big ticket items added and maybe some smaller stuff.
    And Shopmaster, who is a CFM Advocate GCer and on Twitter echoed my comments on Twitter earlier:
    There is no way they can address all of the community’s concerns in one game development cycle or two. Are they going to give Franchise attention, yes .... what it deserves? .... that’s up to the community to decide.

    I think that they were always well organized, what's different is that Marketing seems to have been convinced to be transparent about their information release schedule.
    For me, what's exciting is the actual talking points. Gameplay, Franchise, Presentation, Graphics, Ratings. Notice there's no... My player, gimmicky feature, or New Mode. It seems they were really focused on the important stuff for 19. I'm curious on what they've done with presentation and graphics considering they both seem to be big talking points.

    Aww cmon man you gotta love it! Best time of the year!

    Exactly man, I have no belief in Madden delivering a solid game of realistic football but I still enjoy the discussion this time of year. It baffles me when I see anyone suggest that posts grounded in the reality of the last 14 years of this franchise, somehow diminish their hype, excitement or whatever for the new release. Imo if they are able to overlook the last 14 years of the actual game and still be optimistic, overlooking people's innocuous posts on a forum should be a piece of cake.
    The schedule ends in July. That still gives a couple of weeks to put out info for the other stuff (Longshot, MUT, etc.) I’d be shocked if there wasn’t a new part to Longshot. For FIFA last year the Journey part 2 wasn’t a huge talking point prior to release. Think they released the trailer at EA Play and that was pretty much all they talked about in regards to the Journey. And I think we’ll see the same thing with Longshot. Quick 1-2 minute trailer at EA Play and that’s all we’ll hear until Access releases and promo/review copies release then we’ll get the impressions.

    Gameplay should have been first IMO, especially with new tech being introduced

    They've got Gameplay for the week of EA Play and Franchise for the week of E3. Sounds a lot more logical to put gameplay at a time when they can show us something rather than just talking about it.
    If I were doing it, gameplay would be last because I'd want it to be the most release-like and polished it can be. I can show game modes anytime because I can show you a screen that doesn't quite work yet and keep the bugs hidden while they're still being fixed.
    jfsolo
    If they put gameplay last people would flip out. The sales of Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil would skyrocket.

    You're not wrong, but it's still the best way to present it. People flip out no matter what you do. I'm shocked there aren't more people freaking out about MUT being first because "SEE IT'S ALL EA CARES ABOUT!!!" despite the fact that we're getting the things that are important to us at the highest profile periods leading up to release; EA Play and E3.
    Last is when the most people are paying attention. Last is when it's most polished. I honestly don't get why they DON'T do it last.
    Weird that ratings get its own week... and that is what's last. I guess they probably get a lot of social media attention for ratings because people talk about how well their favorite players match up.
    Cowboy008
    I have no interest in MUT but do you think when they talk about it this week that they will show some gameplay or will it just be a write up?

    I expect that all we'll get before EA Play are words and screen shots.

    After skipping Franchise Mode in 18, this team better have gone "balls to the wall" for 19.
    I look forward to June 6th!

    What happens on June 6th?

    Almost 30 years in the development and nowhere close to being a good game, i don’t understand how people even get excited about Madden anymore. I guess if the people continue to waste their money on the game, EA has no need to make the game better.

    Ummmm wasn’t we suppose to get something today or ?

    Would assume by the end of the week. 3 day weekend for most companies this week.

    ratings need to be lowed across the board by 5-7 pts not every player but 98% of them i think EA needs to hire that franchise guy to work with kane

    This is really the only time of year I come in here to have a discussion about the game. But I love reading posts from guys like Deuce and the bigger names here. I can't wait to see how we all break it down this year. Me? I'm in wait and see mode because 18 let me down personally. Here's to another year of good discussions and analysis!

    Yea I agree ithink 18 was fun in the field....for the most part anyway. The only issue i had withon the field is the same I have most years I cant get a good slider set and all pro  becomes to easy and the all madden is outof control. 
    Off the field I often find it hard to keep playing the franchise...which i love soooooo much. But it's kind of stale and I have to make up scenarios or create house rules to keep playing. Ourleague did last until April this year which is coo. Anyway I just want some new or rethought things in franchise and I'll be happy, maybe just port over NHL's franchise I would be in LOVE!!!

    I fully expect we get information tomorrow. Latest would be Friday

    Will definitely be at EA play conference tomorrow.
    Anyone expecting otherwise was being silly.

    It'll be good marketing for EA and Madden to drop the Gameplay blog before EA Play starts. Gameplay is the biggest blog that most if not all are waiting for. So to drop that have around EA Play will give it buzz
    If they release it today and follow last weeks schedule it should be out in the next hour or two. I think they will wait for Saturday because they know we’re all waiting to see what RPM is all about.

    Hopefully we get the gameplay blog today. If we don't then I expect it to drop on Saturday during EA Play.

    My only problem with this is wont we be able to see gameplay videos from EA Play? It would only make sense to drop the write up now and then show what the write up was talking about this weekend.

    Last year they didn't allow people to record while playing the game. I believe we may have got one or two really short videos but that was it.
    I would think the trailer drops before videos drops, but that is just me.
    I will be grabbing my popcorn and enjoying the hot takes.
    One that I didn't list:
    Looks good on paper, but I need to see it all in action first.

    Well damn that sucks guess we can only go off of the guys that go to see how the game plays. Any OSer's going this year?

    I think Khalib is.
    Will be nice to see what rpm looks like but even if we do get videos the gameplay is bound to change by the time the game releases.
    Its an earlier release this year but I wouldnt be surprised if it changed by that time.
    Simftballcritic put out a video on Twitter yesterday asking the GCers to ask the Madden folks about changing game play from now till the game releases.
    We'll see.
    Is everyone sure we're guaranteed a deep-dive blog on this one?
    If you go to https://www.easports.com/madden-nfl/features and scroll down, there is a list of features/game modes at the bottom. First heading listed is "The Ultimate Challenge" (MUT), and there's a link to the dev blog. Second heading is "Control Your Dynasty" and some space where, presumably, a link could go.
    Then there's a blurb about graphics and a link to pre-order the game where it talks about TO under "legends of the game."
    I wonder if "find out about gameplay the week of 6/4" just means "We'll talk about it at EA Play" because the game's main page doesn't seem to be laid out for any kind of dev blog on gameplay.

    Above those there is a listing of what you'd consider game play improvements (RPM, Celebrations, Push the Pile, One Cut) that you'd expect to be able to click on for more information. I'd think even if they wait to say anything until EA play there will still have to be an explanation of the new features in writing somewhere as not everyone watches or follows announcements.

    Awww man. I was looking forward to getting something today. Ahh well, still not that much longer of a wait.

    What did I miss? Is it confirmed to not release today?

    I just want to see some running animations so bad at this point.

    Yeah I really just want to see if it finally gives Madden a new look in motion. I assume if they drop a blog a video won't come with it. I can wait till Saturday to see some footage(probably a trailer of some sorts), but atleast I hoped to read about the animations/movement today.

    I expect as much. I also expect impossible camera angles in between plays, like always. :y1: It goes back to 2006 they wanted to roid up the players to make them look like "gladiators" instead of NFL players. That bias still lingers...
    I definitely like the flow to this years info of Madden as compared to years past. Madden 18 was hyped up on May 12 of last year. Having Madden info releasing later puts a hold on the dopamine in our brains wanting the game earlier. Now with the info dropping on June 9 we only have to wait slightly under 2 months to play as opposed to slightly over 3 months to play in years past. I think it’s a better marketing ploy than last year

    Its not really guaranteed to come out today since they said the "week of" everyone is just hopeful that it comes out today.

    Inside sources tell me Madden 19 is going to be a NFL2K5 fans wet dream :)

    In what way? They put so little work into it that the graphics look like 2005 or is it the lack of competition so NFL2K5 fans have nothing else to dream about?
    Lol I kid, I'm really hoping for a good game this year. 18 was fun but I lost interest after the season and went straight into MLB The show

    LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
    Will we get signature moves with the new archetypes ?
    Will we get get more ratings and traits system/Badges ?
    will see soon if its the 2K killer or just the same old madden .
    Interesting connection, not sure what to think of TO after passing on induction ceremony, but that discussion should take place in the NFL forum, which I am sure it already is.

    Because expectations are ever growing no matter what, kind of the "give a mouse a cookie effect". With that said, I have been hinting for a while now that a lot of people are going to like the changes coming this year. They tried to take a lot of feedback in and deliver as much as they could during the year (9 months really) they had.

    For me the initial enjoyment of Madden is never the problem, it's the lasting appeal. The game is never fresh enough to last past the first month to give me that feeling I used to get from football games. 18 I definitely played alot, but I couldn't tell you if it was because I enjoyed the game more, or I just enjoy playing an NFL game. I hope the new movement gives the game that freshness. Frostbite definitely did last year with the graphics, now we need to all to come together.
    Madden 17 from day 1 until the first patch afterwards was the best playing Madden I had played in years. Then the patches nerfed everything and it hasn’t been the same since. If M19 comes out looking and feeling amazing I’d really hope that things do not get nerfed again and actually is allowed to be the features they were made to be.

    Wasn't M17 basically unplayable in cloud cfm's for the first 6 weeks before that first patch because of problems? Everyone i knew had to wait till that patch came out to start their cfm.

    So it's because expectations are too high? Go take a look at NBA2K's myleague and compare it to Maddens CFM. I guess, I would think you're Madden expectations are low.

    We hear this every year. I sure hope CFM makes significant strides, but I seriously doubt it will.
    For some people, w/o solid gameplay, nothing else matters, and I completely understand that thinking. For me, w/o an in
    depth/realistic franchise, gameplay doesn't matter.

    Only because of the run/pass glitch I’m pretty sure. But the game itself was playing great ootb.

    Not this year, wanted to but just got back from Hawaii a week ago and can’t be out of the office that much in a short time. As news is released out there though I’ll give my thoughts on some things.

    While the game played good in many areas ootb,two problems I remember were pursuit angles making the running game too easy and qb scrambling was non-existent from 17 till a late patch for 18.
    If anyone still has 16 play that and tell me the cpu qb AI isn't better than what we've seen since.

    @T4VERTS do you have any idea why Madden has yet to add more playable cameras and/or adjustable camera angles (adjust height and zoom?) Every other major sports title has had this seemingly simple feature for years accept Madden.

    It’s a good question for sure. I got an interview setup with Clint post EA play if it’s not addressed (I haven’t heard anything on this particularly) I’ll ask him about it.

    Last year after E3 people were saying the game is in a good spot but then when it released it was completely different.

    Yeah Tiburon hit em with the old "switcheroo". Impressions are always taken with a grain of salt, but more so with Madden nowadays. Unless it's from a retail copy, you can't really invest too much thought into impressions.

    They love words like that. “Unparalleled” as if they are doing groundbreaking things that no other sports games have done. So unless we have over 100 new legitimate fully developed features for CFM alone then only thing “unparalleled” will be the unparalleled lack of features. T.O. Being on the cover better mean they brought the 2k5 heat

    Madden has always been heavy on showcasing the up close visuals (grass , helmet flake, uni stitch etc).
    I remember when Ian spoke in the Broadcast Camera, his specific words where that it would allow them to “immerse” the gamer like never before.
    I’m really curious why the camera aspect has never really been on any improvement list.

    And then when people started getting retail copies and the statue QB issue was discovered and brought up to Clint his response was you need to play the game yourself before you can judge. I won't be falling for that again this year

    Seems kinda pointless to release the blog tomorrow when they are showing the game off tomorrow. Why not let us read about it today before we get people's reactions.

    Gameplay should have been a two-part blog released on Thursday and Friday and that would have gotten everyone(who isn't jaded) hyped up for tomorrow, but that would have required the marketing folks to be thinking about the core community.

    I wonder if this is a response to everyone last year being mad they didn't see game play? All we have heard recently is "don't tell me about, it prove it", so rather than wasting time writing about it they figure why not show them if they won't believe reading about it anyways?
    I got to say I prefer to read about features and such, but I could totally see this being a pivot based on how things went down last year.
    There will be several independent uploads throughout social media, that’s for sure.
    It’s just that for OS’ers and others who want CFM detailed info, more than likely will not get anything (unless something’s changed) until it’s in someone’s console (ie early copies/EA Access)

    That would be unfortunate, IMO. Someone with a clear understanding of the community would know that despite the reality that there is always going to be a segment shouting, "show me, show me, show me" there are many of us who still greatly appreciating reading about all the various new features and mechanics.

    I agree I much prefer reading myself, just taking a guess at why things appear to be different.
    Looks like trailer tomorrow and cover athlete too. Hopefully, Game changers can record this year. I think having a controlled recording with good quality should be allowed . I understand the tilted cell phone video might not do the game justice and be frowned upon by EA, but I believe last years media coverage was horrible.

    Yeah I'm old school as well. Don't mind reading about things at all. With the new real player motion though, I am excited to see it.
    I think they're just taking a similar approach to what they did when they went to the Infinity Engine. Information was really scarce then and I remember that was when we were still getting Dev streams before E3/EAPlay but even then they were really careful with showing any gameplay and but then the day came and all the articles let the cat out of the bag before they showed the trailer.
    I doubt they're forgoing the blog just to show it and I think it makes more sense to show it first and then talk about it after but that might just be me. I'm sure all we'll get is a sizzle trailer showing it in motion which the quick cuts and weird camera angles and that's simply never going to be enough to gauge it's impact. The one thing I hope they do is include GIFs/video in the blog comparing and showing the difference between this year and last year because that's where you can really show it off and let people get a good impression of how much has changed. It's also insane to go back to last year and realize that gameplay blogs weren't dropping until July 21st-July 28th last year.

    I wouldn’t be surprised with EA breaking away from E3 to have all the attention focused towards their products/games, to keep everything hush-hush for the grand EA Play opening.
    I overheard EA reps while in line at last years EA Play talking about how they loved how EA Play was done to get them photo ops of people standing in long lines to get into the event.
    Got to build EA Play up!!!

    Outside of the capture events, that's long gone. By going to those capture events it allows them full control of the who, what, how, and when in terms of coverage and that's huge for them as it essentially eliminates the "MADDEN 19 TRASH ALREADY (EA PLAY FOOTAGE)" type of thing. I think last year was a really odd year with everything going on which is why everything got pushed so far down the line and even though I wouldn't expect the way footage is released to change, I think it'll be released a lot sooner than it was last year.

    Show me doesn't mean one doesn't want to read about it first. It just means we want to see what they say in actual motion, in action. That's absolutely no reason to put of written blogs.
    Show me is an absolutely reasonable position.

    Never said it wasn’t reasonable, also doesn’t mean it doesn’t affect the order either.

    No reason to feel sorry, it's just that for some like myself, it's not worth buying a console just to play one game like Madden, when for me, the PC already plays all the other games I'm interested in.
    And I'm pretty sure EA has never actually said that, they've just been silent for the past 10+ years. It may not be this year, but who knows, at some point they may try again.

    As someone who hasn't been a PC gamer since I've been a little kid, can anyone explain why this is such a huge deal other than modding?

    Modding is a huge key, plus the graphics were superior 10 years ago to the consoles. Not sure if the consoles closed the gap in those 10 years.

    This series lived on the PC during the course of the PS2/XBOX generation. It's pretty cool to see it coming back.
    I do wonder if it'll be a 1:1 with the console versions though. I'm sure we'll find out plenty in the coming weeks.

    They got to know that folks are going to bust the game open and tweak this game.
    - NCAA is a guarantee to happen
    With that, I’m wondering if console versions may be getting greater Customization abilities added, or at least looked at for the future.

    Lol, this is the only reason that I am excited for the PC version! Hopefully it gets turned into the NCAA game quickly.

    The interesting thing about this will be if the database can be expanded somehow to include more than 32 teams. I don't believe we've seen that drastic a mod in any sports game before. Could be wrong though.

    So when are we getting gameplay info? They said week of 6/4. They're running out of time.

    Quick question:
    Does them releasing some CFM info today count as the info we are scheduling to get next week

    We will see a deep dive eventually but this info covers the heavy hitters from this year.
    Can this be temporarily stickied? It would be a lot more convenient for people curious about the release schedule if they don't have to search for it through the various pages. In the meantime, Franchise should be revealed this week, right?

    I'm very happy so far. I'm just hoping franchise presentation/immersion sees some love. As someone who adores what the MBL does on their own, I'd love to see some similar presentation elements worked into franchise organically.

    I hope when the deep dive comes out some time this week we see maybe 2 or 3 more small things they added to franchise mode. I think what they have added so far is great but would be nice if there's a little bit more.

    The threading of in game images I think has some serious potential for immersion, I want to see it hands on. I also think the fact these images are taken automatically (also can do it manually) means their system know to flag "good" plays and apply some sort of context to them. Future use of this tagging system could be the highlight wrap up show everyone has asked for over the past few years.
    Again, in my eyes this is a first step towards bigger and better uses in the future.

    I'm interested in seeing this tagging system too. If it's similar to a hybrid of past NCAA dynasty news or FIFA's news feed I'd be pretty happy. Hoping for more for the future, but definitely would be happy. I'm hoping there would be something pulled for news from other non-user games but I have no idea.

    Isn’t there some sort of subscription you have to buy to be able to get in on PC? I thought I read something like that.

    No, you can buy it outright or if your subscribed to Access premium you get the full game as well as BF and all of EAs other games as long as you have a subscription, It’s like “Netflix style” or like Gamepass on Xbox if your familiar.

    I absolutely loved the screens that were taken from games and used in NCAA's franchise. I love that Madden is finally taking from it. I personally think screenshots and twitter captions are just as immersive as say a full weekly show. You could argue the fact that they are all there front and center and take seconds to glance at is more effective as choosing to watch a highlight show with commentary. Quick and simple things are great for everyone to enjoy.

    So... I just realized they have yet to announce the cover athlete. I wonder what the hold up is?

    I wonder if they would be crazy enough to put a rookie on the cover. I thought for sure they'd have released the cover athlete this week so it's surprising they haven't yet. Rookies were featured heavily in the trailer and not that it's been something they've done for a while but a guy like Barkley fits the mold of the features in the game in both RPM and then custom draft classes as well. And they might have to wait until he's signed and officially joined the NFLPA before they can announce something like that though but I'm sure how any of that works at all.
