Default Madden 12 game discussion

Bought it last night at midnight and played for a few hours.

At first I got the same feeling I got as last year...kind of a "wow this feels different I'm not sure I like this" feeling


Ultimate Team is where it's at though this year...they will have HOF players available to play with and from what I understand they will be releasing new HOF players throughout the year


so FINALY in Madden...I will be able to create an my "All-Time Team"





YES, I will be able to play with Primetime


I am reading complaints from people that it is too easy to make a good team this year, but it is only the first day, so we'll see.

About to go buy it now. I'm someone who doesn't care if the changes are minimal, I'll get that shit just for the rookies and new rosters.

I actually would have prefered it if the game play was the exact same...just new rosters, madden 11 was pretty well balanced IMO

but it does feel different...especially the running

passing feels the same though...I can't tell if man or zone is the way to go yet on defense...Madden 10 zone was dominate, Madden 11 man-to-man was the way to go....I tried both last night a lot and go different results.

I think all in all passing is just easier though...I could pick people apart pretty easy

I know Roy E is still on Dallas and if you go look up player rankings right now Nnamdi is a Raider

maybe the Eagles roster is complete right now but if it isn't I am sure it will be within this week...people need that ASAP and they know it


there are still a decent amount of bugs...and just like last year I am sure the balancing won't be fully adjusted till about a month in.

might not be at 100% till a couple patches

you have to go online and go to "head to head" like you want to play someone. it'll tell you your rosters are out of date and ask you to download the new rosters and there you go.

yeah I know what happened now...I messed around with CPU games before going online and then went straight to Ultimate Team...so I didn't see the update.

not letting me post in the MUT forums and that is pissing me off...

guess they know the traffic on EA forums will crash the server so they aren't letting everyone in...
