Madden 2013

Due to the Madden 12 thread, I'd thought i'd post what the news is about this years edition.

-There will be no more picks from defenders looking over the shoulder or having the ball come over head. Defense must face the ball.
- Super jump abilities for LBs/DBs has been taken away
-Receiver icons will light up for pass plays when they would expect the ball on certain routes. Doesn't mean they're open, but when they would expect the ball coming out of breaks.
-There are new accuracy tweaks. They want you to throw into windows instead of waiting for the receiver gets open (almost impossible on 12)
- New throwing motions, and specific drop backs for all qbs (3,5,7 step drops)
-QBs do PA faster so you don't get raped by defenses constantly.

All I've heard so far really, but it seems that this game should play better. However, that is what is said every year. Until Madden gets a true competitor imo (2ksports) they will continue to put out a shitty product.

I kinda feel the same way. New Madden looks much more impressive than NCAA.

Of course I'm gonna buy this again, and be all pissed off because they will have changed something that wasn't broken, and added some useless detail, while ignoring the stuff that really matters like last year with the pre-game introductions. I do still enjoy playing it but come on. When was the last time that updated rosters wasn't the truly the only reason to buy this game?

I really didn't like the hot and cold crap either. I play hot and cold, I don't need the AI lowering my ratings when I don't play well.

I hope it truly is improved. I need a reason to justify buying it when I have a 9 month old.
Can't wait till my kid is old enough to get his ass whipped at Madden. No mercy.

This may be the first year I skip buying Madden.

As a strictly offline franchise player, they've royally ****ed it up. Connected Careers means a standardized roster across play modes, and in turn they've removed the ability to edit your rosters to use in franchise, or import players from NCAA.

Once again, instead of properly adding a feature, they've crammed it in and broke existing features. What a ****ing joke.

This kind of freaked me out. I haven't been paying attention I guess and just assumed Connected Careers was replacing the superstar mode I never play and the offline franchise would be left alone.

From what I just read and heard, it looks like the Coaching mode will be basically the old franchise mode and you can play offline. Online franchises suck unless you have a group of friends that actually stay committed so I'm a strict Offline franchise player with a few online games thrown in when the mood strikes.

After watching the videos and reading some articles, I'm ok with the changes and will be buying it. I never get NCAA so I don't need to import rosters, and I've always liked using the current roster as my starting point and I don't edit stats so I'll be fine.

Sucks for those of you that the changes effected though.

I might rent Madden this year to see if this is worth it. This will be the 3rd year that I haven't bought a copy.

I ALWAYS buy NCAA. NCAA has been better than Madden for years now.

can anyone tell me if they addressed any of these issues, which from what I can remember, is the main reason why I finally quit buying madden.

1. Blocking, it's so bad. Your blocking FB never helps and always ignores the guy who is going to tackle you. Pass blocking is pathetic, in 2011, my entire line was 90+ each and still got insta sacked a lot of the time.

2. Play action, it's never been anything other than a guaranteed sack.

3. Linebackers that can jump 20 feet in the air to intercept

4. Corners that don't play the ball and make the play every single time.

5. Can't lead a WR, it's always under thrown. In fact, in 15+ years of playing madden, I've never seen an over thrown pass.

6. Robo QB

7. players morphing through each other all of the time.

8. Vacuum blocks

9. Franchise, I was always an offline franchise guy and it used to be a blast, the last 5 years it was horrible.

10. Players that produce, like rookies that you draft or free agents you pick up can have a 2000 yd season for you and improve the next season from 75-77. That's just stupid. It goes the same way when you have a star player, use D Bowe for example, if he only had 100 yards for you in a season, his rating would remain the same and not go down. Player progression has always been ignored.

11. Animations, there are like 3 or 4 animations for catching the ball, for an example.

12. Great running backs that can't break tackles ever.

13. Defensive line. You can have the best DE's in the game and they won't get sacks, ever.

14. There's never any realism, like a play that got messed up, receiver didn't run the correct route, etc.

15. Impact players don't make much of an impact

16. No injuries unless you sim. Believe it or not, I actually want to see some of my players get injured. It makes it more fun, interesting and real.


has any of that stuff been addressed? I couldn't care any less for the little stupid features they add every year when the actual game I spent $60 on sucks balls.

haven't heard anything about it

supposed to be fixed
3. Linebackers that can jump 20 feet in the air to intercept
supposed to be fixed
4. Corners that don't play the ball and make the play every single time.
supposed to be fixed
5. Can't lead a WR, it's always under thrown. In fact, in 15+ years of playing madden, I've never seen an over thrown pass.

6. Robo QB
not sure what you mean here
7. players morphing through each other all of the time.
supposed to be fixed
8. Vacuum blocks
haven't heard anything
9. Franchise, I was always an offline franchise guy and it used to be a blast, the last 5 years it was horrible.
They've completely revamped the offline franchise as Coach Mode in connected careers. Not sure if that's good or bad...from first impressions it looks pretty cool to me
10. Players that produce, like rookies that you draft or free agents you pick up can have a 2000 yd season for you and improve the next season from 75-77. That's just stupid. It goes the same way when you have a star player, use D Bowe for example, if he only had 100 yards for you in a season, his rating would remain the same and not go down. Player progression has always been ignored.
It shoulds like in connected careers players will progress or regress based on production and XP earned.
11. Animations, there are like 3 or 4 animations for catching the ball, for an example.
supposed to be fixed
12. Great running backs that can't break tackles ever.
supposed to be fixed
13. Defensive line. You can have the best DE's in the game and they won't get sacks, ever.
supposed to be fixed, although different players play better in different schemes finally. So a 3-4 or a 4-3 actually means something when it comes to signing players and drafting.
14. There's never any realism, like a play that got messed up, receiver didn't run the correct route, etc.
not sure
15. Impact players don't make much of an impact
not sure, but they do have cold and hot streaks still
16. No injuries unless you sim. Believe it or not, I actually want to see some of my players get injured. It makes it more fun, interesting and real.
Not sure, but they said in the connected careers things will happen. He used as an example "you have been scouting a star player and the draft is right around the corner then you find out that player tore an ACL"

has any of that stuff been addressed? I couldn't care any less for the little stupid features they add every year when the actual game I spent $60 on sucks balls.
From what I've been reading most of what you listed has been specifically mentioned as being fixed (or at least improved) with the new engine. The one I really haven't heard much about is blocking.

I'm buying this one. If this years is all hype and no substance I will never buy another Madden again since they are going on and on about how everything has been fixed with the new infinity engine.

I'm pretty excited about it now...hopefully I'm not disappointed in the end.

Connected Careers is basically everything in one spot.

You can start an offline franchise just like you could before or you can start an online franchise just like before. The only new thing about is you can have players and coaches in the same franchise. So for instance you could coach the Chiefs in the same online franchise that I play as Cam Newton.
