    Ehh, expected information. Nothing 'ground breaking' to me. Madden is a very good game. Now that Xtreme Football set a standard for online franchise features that should be their main concern, giving gamers that type of experience. Ian and company have busted their ass the last few releases to bring Madden out of the early generation funk they were in. Their foundation is strong and now its time to build around it instead of switching it every release. All Madden needs is a informative and interactive online feature like NCAA '11 and people will love Madden like it's the '90s' again.

    Surprise onside kicks wouldn't be something I'd 'lead off' with but I have faith in that group that they have something special this year. By the way, I think EA devs need to come to TSO and hear what 'JerzeyReign' has to say... I'm full of constructive conversation[​IMG]

    Agreed.

    I actually expected to see surprise onside kick after last years superbowl and after reading a twitter discussion between pastapadre and ian cummings. I think everyone expected to see tuner packages as well.

    I have hope for Madden this year, but I did for Madden 11 as well. This is a make or break year for the Madden team. I am not buying it if Online Franchise does not make serious strides. Its time to stop making half assed features and start fully fleshing out the features like Superstar mode and Online Franchise that have been in the game for awhile now.

    You will see surprise onside kicks every kickoff in ranked games from now on and it will pry be banned on TF after release.

    But the Online Franchise will make or break this madden

    Ya I mentioned something like that on the main page article as well... I have a feeling it will be a banned feature.

    In the TMFL, I'm thinking we will probably ban these. If you want the onside, kick it as your normally would.

    Its just going to be one of those hot button issues that people will rage about.

    I think they should drop it to one time per and/or put in a kickoff return play that has 'watch for fake' which mean they may not get a hat on every player of kickoff return. Just even it up, I don't play in any Madden leagues but I wouldn't want that banned. I hope they add that to NCAA '12:)

    Two times a game is entirely too much. Two times a season would be allowable, I think.

    Can we get the statistics of how many times a suprise onside kick has been run in a season by all teams? My guess is maybe once.

    Pretty much what I expected, a couple minor things right out of the gate. The good stuff won't get released for a few months. At least I hope there's good stuff lol

    THIS!

    Definately a good thing from a sim standpoint... but would still need to be monitored in league play IMO. Nothing like having a special feature that gets abused too much.
