    Does the gameplay and CFM stuff improve over the past year?

    Gameplay - yes. The running game feels really good. The game is much more balanced now as you actually have control over your defenders. Especially with the ball in the air. Zones are freaking legit. I can't possibly go through the extensive zone logic improvements, it takes a high football IQ to understand them.

    I didn't play much CFM in '16, I mostly played MUT. However, the addition of practice squads as well as a heavy focus on tuning and such really does more than words. Perhaps it's better coming from someone like BobJr . We are waiting on the total feature set to be announced, because we were really working on a lot of things the last event we went to.

    The little things will add up for sure.

    Has the player goal process been tuned? Are they more realistic from a team standpoint? For example two 1200 yard rushers or five 12 sack guys on the same team.

    Also are draft classes more balanced from top to bottom? Any better draft story integration? Still on two years pick trades?

    As a guy who absolutely hated M16, I'm heading into M17 with a wait-and-see approach. I'm hoping they bounce back this year because last year was a huge disappointment for me, personally. Don't see enough info that has been released in the way of online franchises that really has me excited yet. It looks like all the info they've released on franchise mode has been more geared towards offline play. I don't really get the "Play The Moment" feature they've developed. To me, that's more for the casual Madden fan who gets bored with the game quickly. Hoping that's not their big sticking point for franchise play this year, but I'm sure some players will love it. The game planning feature will be a really nice addition to online franchise play, just have to hope it's not one of those features that's broken in some way all release. I love Madden and am hoping they improve on last year's game and get me back on the ship!

    Madden 16 was my favorite installment since about 2009 so I have hope for 17. As for these features, it's a mixed bag for me.

    This play the moments thing looks like a total dud for sim players. And maybe I'm the only one but I don't really get the big decision things? Granted, I just skimmed the post but isn't every free agent signing or player cut a big decision? I guess I was expecting more from the franchise hype.

    On the positive side, the addition of the practice squad is great.

    Is regression the same? Or is it more gradual? Five or six point speed drops just because they turned 30 seems excessive. To me it should be factored into a continual wear and tear situation. The 300 plus carry guys should hit some of sort of hall.

    We had more conversations with the devs about regression than I care to admit. We found some stuff we think they are addressing.
