    Do we know when the first roster update will be? Surely before week 1 and surely before the Sept 11 patch.

    Donny Moore all but confirmed it via twitter. But yes, no formal announcement.

    Friday has been the date as far as we all know but someone posted it would not be until Saturday. Any confirmation?

    EDIT: This was confirmed on the Madden Facebook site. However, it seemed to indicate that the roster update will not be ideal for CCM (at the worst there are no cuts to be made for preseason).

    Shaun Mason RynoAid Emmdotfrisk Can any of you guys confirm how the roster update will effect CCM's planning on using them?

    I you
    You have two choices. start with current 73 man, or start with updated 53 man.

    Is there a negative effect of starting with 53 in CCM other than not having cuts to make in preseason?

    I'm not sure about that. I don't know if CPU teams fill roster to 73 before week 1 or not. It will have to be tested before you actually start.

    I'm conflicted. Part of me says just start now and have full rosters and preseason. Part of me wants to wait for the updated rosters. I'm leaning towards using the defaults as there likely aren't many significant additions and very few ratings changes. It also may not work well in CCM so there's that too... :rolleyes:

    Basically the roster update is just doing the cuts for them, it really isn't doing anything extra special or are we still going to receive update ratings and updated contracts also?

    The updated rosters are actually going to have some difference in players ratings as Donny confirmed that with some players. Don't know about every player but as far as I know, there are some players that will have different ratings when the roster update comes out so it's not just a update of the real 53 man roster.

    @CavemanGamer we will not make many rating adjustments based on preseason. Regular season is where it really counts.

    Wasn't necessarily talking about preseason but players that might have been lacked when the game came out or adding a player like the FS he just made for Jaguars. For example, Zach Brown rating will change as he confirmed on twitter. When drafted, he actually said Zach Brown will be a athletic fun guy to play with but was poorly rated when the game came out. Just a few "tweaks" here and there.
