    Superstar, Offline Franchise, Online Franchise are now all in a single mode.

    We will use this thread to center all the information and provide our TSO GC impressions!

    Ok, first question how does it handle offseason deals like the draft and free agency. Are those details still a secret?

    Do you have to play as a player, or is that two different things?

    so a one guy could be a coach and one guy could be a player? guess a huge question (maybe obvious answer) is that there is a designated commish that can constrain however he wants?

    They are secretive to each individual player but Adam Schefter may break a news story on twitter spreading rumors about what you are doing.

    Does this mean that you and a friend can be on the same team as superstars and play at the same time through an entire season?!?

    Yes the commish can restrict anything. All players, all coaches, a mix, whatever you want.

    and holy hell this seems like a lot of moving parts... you get the feel that the guys at EA are truly confident in the execution?

    no you can only have 1 player on the same team at one time. Unfortunately two players cannot co-op on the same team.

    Do all players gain XP if you're the coach? Like all 50ish players are like little RPG characters?

    Can me and a friend do co-op franchise for 30 years together on the same team over the internet vs CPUs?

    I played through almost 3 seasons at pre-alpha phase and I was impressed with the stability.

    I hated superstar mode but loved franchise.

    I just want to be clear, you will have the opportunity to either? From what I can tell from that short video players can improve themselves by accomplishing things. That sounds good in theory until Cam Newton is a 139 OVR player by year 3. Im assuming that is in superstar mode.

    obvious comment and not trying to be a negative nancy: this is shocking...

    a) its like 15 steps forward and more than one would ever expect...
    b) if it works correctly. how long they been working on this? very scary.

    All players and coaches gain XP. You choose the progression for each guy like the packs you saw in the webcast.

    yes, the commish chooses. It is extremely difficult to improve on ratings. There was one point I tried to bump shaun rodgers BSH from 93 to 94 and it was 49K plus points. It would take me almost half of a season to upgrade that attribute.

    Not a GC but I heard on the Gamesradar Box Score podcast that EA had a team that worked strictly on Connected Careers back when M12 was still being developed.

    yes, if you want to be QB and your buddy RB you can start a league with just you two and run a superstar league with a fully functioning franchise.

    I just got an insta-woody then lost it when I realized this is going to lead to some serious stat whoring if its based off certain goals like that.

    So, do we finally have a fully functional Online Franchise in the game?

    So this eliminates sites like XFN and MLM?
