|For those of you who are new to the Paydirt Football league (PFL),
We've been around since the year 2000. Our main goal is to give
our members a pleasant atmosphere to play and the most realistic
gameplay possible. With that said, This was our first year using
2019 and of course there were growing pains.
So, what's next?
Well, another season using Madden 19 before the new game comes
out in August. This upcoming season will see changes to the
slider settings and global player rating adjustments to give us
what we think, will be more realistic gameplay. You may think
that the PFL admin does not see what you see as perceived flaws
with the game. But rest assured, they do, and have been working
behind the scenes to do the math to make corrections to the game
that EA Sports failed to do. Expect improvements across the
board for next season.
Of course, Madden 20 is on the way and we will in turn move to
it after next season. So here are some of the improvements
coming our way with the latest version of Madden NFL Football.
EA Sports has reportedly spent more time with the 2020 version
of Madden than any other, tweaking game play, coach mode and
franchise mode. Improvements in gameplay should give us a better
starting point to tweak the mechanics. We will have a couple
months to test settings and ratings before beginning the season.
Not likely. Word is, 'Football Idiots' has designed a way to
export the rosters from Madden into a spreadsheet where they can
be imported back into the game. So, unless something changes, we
will be able to continue with our rosters, meaning you do not
have to lose what you've spent seasons building.
Rumors are that Madden 20 will have true coach mode. No more
suspicions that your opponent is taking control of his players
after the snap. Sit back and enjoy the game with confidence that
you are not being ripped apart by a 14 year old who has no
Yep, that too. Now, that doesn't really help or hurt us since
our teams are always human controlled.
Yes, they're doing that too and this is important to us.
Hopefully, this will give us more options as owners and the
Commissioner more control over the league in general.
So, that's it for now. We will keep you informed as we learn
more. Maybe EA Sports has finally listened to the leagues out
here and older, more mature players who have graduated from
puberty to give us a better, more realistic gaming experience.
Beware Thumb Jockeys! We might just be getting what we've been
wanting for a while....we'll see.
Just found out....
Madden 20 player ratings will be vastly different. Star players
will still have high overalls, However, There will be big
differences in the overalls of players from talent level to
talent level. IE: While your star WR might have an overall of
95, your 2nd WR, someone like WR Sammy Watkins may only have a
75 OVR. Teams will have players with an overall in the 60s in
the starting lineup. There will also be a noticable difference
in the performance between a 90 OVR player and an 89 OVR player.
This is EA's new way of rating players and a new spacing between
top tier players, 2nd and 3rd stringers and bench players. New
coding allows for a greater difference between a player in the
80's and a player in the 90s, etc... So we want to be ready for
this with our next build. The good news is it will likely
deliver more realistic gameplay and the changes will be equal
across the league.
