1) What is the first title update?

  • Added Super Bowl and Playoff Field conditions for Online Franchise
  • Fixed False Start Grieving issues with Online games
  • Fixed video player issue where video would hang on latent connections
  • Improved uploaded highlight quality
  • Switched ranked online games to 7 min Q's

  • Reduced/removed holding on kicking plays
  • Improved toe drag catch logic
  • Improved pursuit angles for outside running plays
  • Fixed defenders in pursuit running away from O-Line
  • Better play recognition in man coverage
  • Fixed double pass online exploit

2) When is the title update coming out?

It is up for approval from MS and Sony, expecting approval this week, and release next week but it's in the hands of third party at this point.

3) What is being done to stop the effectiveness of passes to the flats?

Hoping to adress this in second title update

4) What being done to improve blocking?

We are looking at this issue and hope to find some fixes for title update #2

5) What's being done to fix the replay cutoffs on highlights?

Will be fixed in title update #2.

6) What's being done to improve the accuracy of simulkated franchise stats?

Working to decrease QB yardage and increase RB TD's. Hoping to get this into title update #2.

7) Are there any plans to fix the effectiveness of the PA Qb draw?

We plan to release a video showing ways to contain this play. We don't feel like it's a money play and releasing a counter via video will go a long way towards containing it.

8) Any plans to change pursuit for cpu defenders?

Looking to address in 2nd title update

9) Pursuit for offensive players?

Next roster update will have increased pursuit angles for offensive players that should cut back on defensive TD's.

10) Any plans to get stadium specific sounds working correctly?

We are currently looking at this and hope to get the fix into the 2nd title update as well.

11) Are you working to adding more features to online franchise such as salary cap, contracts, etc?

Absolutely but it won't be soon due to the complexity of the matter.

12) Are their plans to add sliders for online games and online franchise?

Not for Madden 10, will be looking at adding it for Madden 11 though.

13) Any plans to add more auto replays?

Currently working on and trying to get in for 2nd title update

14) Why isn't the ability to choose what you want to challenge?

Priority for this is low since real NFL refs would look to correct more than just what was specifically challenged by the coach.

15) Why so many restriction on Wildcat formation?

We tried to limit exploits by limiting some of the things you are able to do in normal plays. No plans to unlock the formation fully for offline.

16) Why is it so hard to get sacks against the CPU?

Lame duck throws have drastically released sacks since the QB can throw out. We are looking at ways to increase sacks.

give me some insight because i'm a sack master on ncaaa

Me personally, I take control of the LDE. Sidbury specifically, in franchise mode. Even online. As soon as the ball is snapped, I automatically start hitting the analog stick to the right until my man breaks away from the O-Lineman. You got a sure shot unless a RB gets in your way

Dude seriously, get over it. It's a video game. If you're really looking that hard at how they run, that only tells this board something about yourself

um it's football it's almost all running, no need to look hard, it just makes no sense. it's the best the game has looked so far this generation yet they had to make them run gayer than ever. It was always funky looking but it didn't matter before, but it's beyond weird this year, their whole bodies be flailing side to side lol. if it played like NCAA I wouldn't complain about it at all.

nah my complaint is why the **** did they take a great idea and refused to improve upon it. Instead of improving they strip more features off of it every year. Superstar is a complete waste of space. I enjoyed the road to glory on NCAA then superstar just ruined it.

Excellent.

I really hope they add the ability to skip the first down and touchdown cutscenes because they get really really old.

Seriously. I am so **** sick of seeing the ******* chain gang measure the distance when it's OBVIOUS it was a first down. PLEASE EA, please tone this down. Or at least make it a skippable cutscene.
