    Complicating the regression issues in Madden 15 was the inescapable pitfall that was confidence. As a new commissioner tool in Madden 16, commissioners will now have the ability to reset a team's confidence to 50.

    Those who struggled or where in user online CFMs who had struggling teams understand how big of a feature this is. It works pretty similarly to the commissioner tool that clears cap penalties.

    This feature was a late add based on community feedback during a recent community event. The dev team did a fantastic job responding to the comments and ideas and made a implementation of this feature a priority.

    I have faith in you guys all day but I still believe we wouldn't have half the shit we have now if it wasn't for you guys. I will give EA credit for listening to all of you though.

    You've met Shaun IRL. I'm equally as hard to drown out. Although I think I'm a bit more tactful than Shaun, lol.

    You guys need it, though.

    Plus that's me being a competitor. Slightly different than an asshole, albeit there is overlap.

    Drifterbub does it reset everyone or just those below 50? I'm assuming everyone. Wish it were the latter but shit I will take either with open arms.

    The commissioner can boost all players on a given team to 50 at any point in time. Players with conf above 50 keep their current value.

    I know this is late, but it would be perfect if we had the option of disabling confidence entirely.

    Behind all good code are two concepts called separation of concerns and loose coupling. If the devs have done this, it should be fairly straightforward for them to offer this option.

    The issue now is determining when it is valid to do the reset. just like the cap reset. The cap reset does not undo a possible dream team that now does not have the associated costs. I am afraid this is always going to be grey area. Which I guess is better than nothing for solving straightforward cases.

    Take the new coach. What if the old coach kept all quick devs and superstars at 90+ and let the rest of the team go to zero? If they keep those 90s instead of going down to 50, I can see that being a source of conflict.

    All good points. This is why it's important to have a commissioner who knows what they are doing. We do a lot to help educate an allow commissioners to have the tools to make those calls.

    If every feature the devs put in could be disabled then EA would have zero control over user experience. It's a catch-22 that they aren't willing to attempt.

    It's much more constructive (and this is something that they didn't do in Madden 15) to be more upfront with how factors like confidence impact the game such that it can be properly tested and the feedback given from people like us is more effective. Knowing all the issues that were present in Madden 15, Bob, Shaun and myself (as well as other CFM gamechangers) had a very vested interested in making sure the back end was going to hold up to more than just a single season of CFM.

    Fair enough! Looking forward to M16. I'll be sure to give my 2 cents ;).

    Although for the most part I wasn't one of the teams to struggle, this is a very needed feature to help keep leagues more competitive. Love that this will be implemented.
