      From a gameplay perspective, doesn’t it kind of suck that these teams aren’t balanced? I mean, I totally understand, from the simulation standpoint, why they give the Eagles great stats but the Browns are garbage, but still, if I’m a Browns fan, I’ll get my ass kicked playing them against other people.

      It’s just strange how other games bend over backwards to get special abilities to less played characters to maintain some kind of competitive balance (FPS and fighting games in particular).

        Simulations typically try to model the real world.

          Nobody wants to see a 99 overall rated Browns team. It would make their brains implode.

          Doesn’t stop them from creating a competitive mode where teams are more balanced to focus on skill of the player for online matches.

          I haven’t bought a Madden game in 3 years, do they have that?

            I actually asked a dev about even teams in another EA Sports franchise. You make a good point, but it is kinda just the way Madden is these days.

              I wonder if people in markets with shitty teams are less likely to buy a Madden title, even if they are a huge fan of their team.

              For example, I have Cardinals season tickets, but I’d hate to buy Madden to get my teeth kicked in playing all the Eagles teams online. And no way in hell am I playing as another team. Haha.

                A nice feature in Madden NFL games is Franchise mode. You can build a Cardinals team that doesn't suck. I find these game modes are actually a nice escape for fans of smaller crap teams like the Browns.

                  Can you use your franchise team online?

                I don't know about competitive online folks who only care about w/l ratio, but fans of these sports games I know generally stick to their favorite team and players, doesn't really matter what the ratings are. And a win against a much higher rated team is that much more satisfying.

            That's sort of what people are really into with FIFA Ultimate Team thing and I think they carried that stuff over to Madden. You basically build a fantasy team and take that into the online competition vs others.

            It's obviously not the same as playing the real world facsimile teams, and they monetize the hell out of it, but they allow you make your own balance with that stuff.

            Madden Ultimate Team is this mode. Collect your favorite players on one roster (where favorite is correlated with good because few people are big fans of crappy players).

          my little brother playing FIFA years ago:

          "i finally was able to put myself in! ball control: 99. stamina: 99. vision: 99. agility: 99. shot power: 99. goalkeeper positioning: 95 - it's not my strong suit, obviously"

        there's a reason pretty much all the top fifa players pick from a group of 5 teams

        Those ratings only matter in play now mode and when you start up a franchise mode. You can ultimate team salary cap mode to make teams more balanced.

      Is there a Madden fantasy football league. Where you draft your players then play the opponents once a week?
