Madden 13: Can you seriously NOT just play a season or franchise??

12 posts in this topic

Yeah it's really dumb what they did. You have to do the career thing and select coach. What is the dumbest shit ever though is you can't use your own edited rosters in this mode. You can't edit ratings, numbers (get ready for multiple players with the same number) and so on. It's absolutely terrible to play this as a sim football game. That said I still had fun with it.

Connected Career and selected Coach. That is franchise mode.

Is that it, though, Stream?

I mean, if I just wanted to play through the season I could by selecting it as you stated, right?

The news about not be able to use your editted teams pissess me off to the degree that I may take this game back unopenned. I really don't have the time to invest in being an online Madden player. I just want to get my giggles offline playing through a season...no RPG effect for football necessary, just let me play the season.

Pretty much I mean there are differences like the addition of the XP system. The only draw back is there is no fantasy draft for franchise. Which does suck but I prefer this year "franchise" aka Connected Career compared to prior Madden's.

You can turn off all those "RPG elements" if you like.

Is there anyway that there is a fantasy draft season? I like drafting and running with a team that is no older than 26.

And you can't play two players in franchise or season... Fucking lame. EA is always taking twice as many steps back as it does forward

Nope no fantasy drafting, no custom rosters, no editing rosters either. They took out too much IMO to implement this connected careers.

I am waiting for madden 14 for them to put those features back in plus the new physics engine will be better with an extra yet of development... Hopefully. This is EA we are talking about so I won't get my hopes up.
