Madden 18 News

Post by DatIsraeliGuy on Fri May 12, 2017 6:01 pm

I'm sure many of you already saw it, but Madden 18 received its first(?) trailer today, and more importantly, released some news too.
The main "back of box" features consist
Powered by Frostbite Madden Like You've Never Seen Before
Play Now Live
Play the best real world NFL match ups each week
Target passing
Play Styles - Arcade/Simulation/Competitive
Coverage Assignment
Coach Adjustments
Favorite Ways To Play MUT and Franchise


I'm really intrigued by target passing, simulation/arcade/competitive style and coach adjusments, but we'll see what franchise mode gets

I hope there are some more improvements for franchise mode though too.

Story mode in EA games is s***
In FIFA you were locked as a generic twat called "Alex Hunter" (who is of course black because Football is played by mostly black people, grumble)
And it was a MyCareer knock off without all the customization

Would be a dream of they'd concentrate on franchise mode,  I fear 90% effort in mut as usual.

Do you have any empirical data that shows football is mostly played by black people? Or are you just a racist?

Frostbite was added to FIFA last year. It hasn't been smooth in all honesty. Hope they can use frostbite properly and without negatively effecting the game

SIM play style could be huge for CFM.

If players actually play to their ratings and not mainly stick skills, that could really strengthen the focus on roster management - great!

Coaching Adjustments from the NCAA series finally made their way into Madden 18. Cornerback Matchups will be the most significant but there are some other good options that could come into play in certain situations. "Ball in the Air" adjustments seem like they will make upgrading that trait for DBs unnecessary.

Here is a breakdown of all the Coaching Adjustments you can do in Madden NFL 18 on both offense and defense. There are Pros and Cons to almost every adjustment so choose the right situations to use these. (source: Shopmaster and Operation Sports)

The coach adjustments look huge. I just hope they are balanced good enough so they influence some things, but are not huge gamebreakers.
Second thing I hope is that these settings are quite easy to change in-game. Definitely some settings will change with the game score, but should be easy and fast enough to change without pausing the game. Otherwise I could get quite disturbing if your opponent changes the settings after each drive.

Not many new features for CFM, but with a few bug fixes and some additional gameplay and tactic functionalities, that could be very entertaining for sure.

I saw a picture of some in game amendments - they seem to be done before snap (L1/square button for example)

My fear/concern is that it adds a huge dimension to the game that lesser experienced guys will suffer from. I generally wont use adjustments in M17 as much as some other players (others I have watched or played against) this could extend the gap between different player abilities. However I had a similar fear over the CPB we now run and my fears/concerns ultimately look invalid so I'm massively hoping I'm wrong lol

some of the changes make sense to me tho - and as brza listed I can see that they come with pros and cons which could make it interesting indeed!

If the adjustment controls are like in NCAA you can change them during the play call selection between plays the same way that you can toggle between no-huddle and chew clock now. Its wasn't possible pre-snap (after calling the play) like hot routes and audibles, if my memory serves me right.
