Madden 21 Wishlist

  • Also I would like to see:

    - Detailed analytics, for H2H games online passing formations, run/ pass ratio, run types etc
    - Better Coverage vs TE/ Slot Corner Routes, the purple zones need to stay in their grid if activated, and not drop down to cover the flats
    - OL vs DL match ups, example a 92 DT should be locked up by a 81 OG... The OT should hold his own for about 3.5 sec at least
    - If a player hurt in real life or suspended for PED’s shouldn’t be able to enter the game until back in real life
    - Please bring back fatigue. No RB can run 10 times in a row and not be tired. Or a WR runs a 20 TD post route 3 times in a row his fatigue should be effected by 90%
    - And finally, stop the cheesers! Running the same play over and over 10 straight times. The A.I must adjust after the 3rd call. Force ppl to add some variation to their games.

    I’ve full confidence Madden 21 will be 🔥
    I’m so excited to see what they put out in August.

    Here’s a nice little wish for Madden 21.... with our EA accounts we can go in a view our last 10 games and review our stats and tendencies. Also, if we could see what our opponents are doing offensively and defensively. Like a basic analytics section. Now this would be so cool.

    Would be nice to see NFL mascots in Madden NFL 21. Why not? NHL and NBA have mascots. Would be nice for more authentic arenas too.

    Things that I believe EA Sports needs to fix in Madden in future years (Part 1):

    GAMEPLAY

    THE RETURN OF THE AGGRESSIVE CATCH:

    EA Sports has to create two types of aggressive catches for the two types of wide outs in Madden, the "athletic" aggressive catch, and the "big body" aggressive catch. For example, DeAndre Hopkins is known for big time, athletic aggressive catches, Tyreek Hill is also known for very athletic leaping aggressive catches over defensive backs. With big body Wide Outs like Mike Evans and Michael Thomas, those receivers, should have an aggressive catch called, "big body" aggressive catch. Where, if you throw them a 50/50 ball, depending who the corner back is and how good that corner is, Evans or Thomas will win that battle some times and the corner (depending on who he is, like a Marshon Lattimore, or a Marlon Humphrey) will win that battle sometimes.

    TONE DOWN THE PASS RUSH:

    The Pass Rush on Madden is too overpowering.

    GLITCH JUKING/SWERVING:

    Swerving and Glitch juking needs to be removed from Madden. Defenses should be able to have a running back who is caught in the backfield for a 3-4 yard loss, wrapped up and tackled without a Running back side glitch juking two defenders and then gaining 15 to 20 yards. Swerving needs to be removed/fixed in Madden. Close tackling in Madden is impossible to do, running backs should not be to just break loose up the field despite having 1 defender on his heels (literally), and then when I go to dive tackle him, I grab nothing and he scores. I believe that needs to be fixed...


    Things that I believe EA Sports needs to fix in Madden (Part 2):

    CHALLENGING PLAYS IN ONLINE GAMEPLAY:

    During online gameplay, Madden players arent able to challenge catches on the sideline or in the back of the endzone. Also when plays are actually being challenge, actually show the play that is being challenged by the Madden player, like you would see in a real NFL game. Rather than the typical, you go to the pause menu, you challenge a play, and then the game doesnt even show the play that you challenged, and the game just makes a decision without the play being shown at all...

    BLOCKING:

    When offensive linemen are blocking on Madden, there should be more holding calls, and defensive linemen, should be able to get off of blocks quicker. When opposing players run the football, when the offensive line blocks, defensive linemen, get stuck on blocks for too long. Block shedding, should not be associated with how quickly a running back runs through a hole on offense. Blocking shedding should only be of importance in the running game, based on how good that defensive lineman is individually. Double team blocking needs to be better especially against elite pass rushers....

    The gameplay overall in Madden, needs to be faster.

    Referees have to be brought back in future Madden games. Madden looks very awkward without refs in it..

    Onside kicking in Madden is absolutely horrible. The user needs to know that when they are about to kick an onside kick (depending on how good the kicker is on the team that you are using), that you will have an equal to fair chance of recovering the onside kick, instead of just onside kicking normally, and the opposing special teams just recovers it, without really any fight. Onside kicking needs to revamped in totality...

    Home crowds need to be more of a factor in Madden from now on. In NCAA Football 2006, there was a crowd feature called crowd meter, where the louder the crowd got, the the bigger the meter got, and it actually shook the screen and it influenced opposing teams huddles, and would cause false starts. Stadiums like Century Link Field in Seattle, Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, and Heinz Field in Pittsburgh should receive the crowd factor feature as a start to this, because of how loud and how much momentum wise, the crowd plays a factor in how those teams play at home. But overall, crowds should be featured and factored into Madden more whether in online play, or franchise mode or offline play...

    Mut
    1. be able to buy coins from ea
    2. If you don't want to spend money, something like the madden mint that ea already put in madden mobile
    3. have madden today like madden mobile
    4. More filters in the auction house (Choose multiple positions such as wr and QB and le if those are players you need,)
    5. Add more solos that are less of a grind
    6. Make easier ways to get training (training solos that give you a quicksell if you play a 2-minute quarter game or something)
    7. allow players to be able to create custom jerseys, stadiums, and playbooks for a set cost
    8. more platinum cards
    9. more solo modes with rewards (season mode, playoffs mode, practice drills, etc.)
    10. cheaper packs

    Franchise mode
    1. Realistic scouting (be able to watch the combine or just parts of it and no scouting point system)
    2. Better trading (if you play with CPUs they never accept good trades and will make you go to great lengths to trade for even a bad player)
    3. better player interactions (A pre-written text is not good enough)
    4. Frequent roster updates and actual draft classes instead of random premade ones
    5. free agency that isn't just 60 overalls
    6. relocation at any time (and be able to create a team)
    7. Expansion teams

    Gameplay (What needs to be changed)
    1. people running and their legs going through people instead of jumping over them
    2. X-factor rushers always beat blockers (change this)
    3. Blocking is not good no matter how good the o-line is
    4. Injuries are random and never happen when they normally would, often happening away from the center of the play
    5. blockers are not always aware of where the play is happening so they will block on the wrong side of the field
    6. A lot of people have said this but like NBA 2k there should be all-time teams and classic teams instead of just 32 teams (Not just "legends" and "elites")
    7. glitchy plays (like a defender flying across the field or the ball being put on the wrong spot after a kickoff)

    QB1
    1. Every position instead of just QB
    2. If you want to keep a story mode maybe just make the story longer and so players have more choice
    3. have some sort of progression system (like legacy for coaches) for players to make it to the hall of fame
    4. make decisions matter more
    5. Let the player choose any name from the beginning (example: Just to get into the locker room I had to make my last name Mahomes
    6. choose any college team and be able to play through the season
    7. If a player demands release make an interaction with the coach or something

    Superstar KO
    1. I've never played it so I don't really have anything to say

    For future Maddens, Punters need to be given the ability of being to kick more running rugby style punts like in real life. Only a certain group of punters with that kind of kicking power should be given that unique ability

    For future maddens in franchise mode. During the season, if you are using a team, and your team is in the playoff picture, during the last few weeks of the season, after your games, you should be given the option to leave your game and spectate another opponent's game that has an affect on your playoff positioning. How this would work is, say for example your using the Baltimore Ravens and you have just defeated Miami Dolphins to eliminate them from playoff contention. If you are fighting for the #2 or #1 seeds, then lets say Kansas City or New England have to lose in 1 of or 2 of the their last three games in order for you to get that spot. Once your game ends, there will be an option that pops up on the screen that says: "would you like to tune in the Chiefs/Eagles game? Or the Pats/Packers game?", and when that option pops up, all you would have to do is simply press the X button and choose which game you want to tune into. It will be just like in real life when you want to tune to a crucial game at home when your turning the channel in real life, but it will be an option in a video game. And once you tune into that crucial game during your franchise mode, the commentators will mention the playoff ramifications of the game that you are tuned into at that moment. Its bringing real playoff aspects and drama to the game of Madden which it has lacked for years....

    Bring back the Madden intros that start the game like old school maddens, for example Madden 99, Madden 2000, Madden 2001. Those old Madden intros, made Madden feel like Madden. The intros now a days make Madden feel bland, and not as impactful or important as Madden once did. Old school intros, mixed with new school, would make Madden feel special again...

    In future maddens as far as gameplay goes, when it comes to playcalling, there should be a limit on the amount of times that a user should be able to call a play. For example, if a online/offline gamer, calls a screen play or calls out route/crossing route plays 2-3 times in a game and that play/plays only works 1 out of the 3 times, there should be a percentage marker on the possibility of that play working or not working depending how many times the play worked or didnt. For a example if you call stretch play 3 times in a row, and it only works 1 time, thats a 33%, that means that there is very good chance that either your opponent or the computer will realize the play your calling, and your opponent whether offline or online will have made an adjustment and you offensively will have to adjust to the opposing player's defensive adjustments. Just like in real life, if a team calls a screen play 2-3 times in a game, and whether they are a good screen team or not, if the screen play doesnt work 2 out of those 3 times, then they wont be able to call it again, because of the percentage of it not working. This will give the opposing user online or offline when gaming, an equal opportunity on the defensive side of the ball to have better chance to adjust and be prepared down the line instead of constantly have to defend the same play over and over again and by the percentage marker showing the limited amount of times that play that they constantly called would work, it would force that online/offline gamer to adjust offensively and call different plays and expand his offensive playbook..

    More penalties need to be called in Madden, whether it be in online gameplay or offline. Pass Interferences, Holding Penalties, Block in the backs, roughing the passer. Penalties like those need to be called more, especially holding penalties against offensive linemen who's pass block ratings are a lot lower than than the elite pass blockers on the game...

    This is for kickoffs. When Gaudin says what the match between the two teams who are playing each other are. If any on these aren't taken into consideration, that's fine. I'm just putting stuff out there for future Madden games.

    Steelers vs Patriots, "They met here on the opening Thursday of 2015, and they're at it again, the Steelers and Pats are underway.". That should be removed when PIT and NE play at Heinz Field. You know how when Gaudin only says the rematch of the Epic In Miami when the Chargers and Dolphins play at Hard Rock Stadium, or about the Colts moving away from Baltimore when the Colts visit the Ravens at M and T Bank stadium? The line about Pittsburgh and New England should be the same as the aforementioned.

    There are a couple of Super Bowls that were blowouts that don't deserve to be mentioned. The Seahawks vs Broncos Super Bowl 48 and Ravens vs Giants Super Bowl 35. They were forgettable from a competitive standpoint. A Super Bowl like the Bills vs Cowboys is okay to mention because of the fact that they met twice and back-to-back. I wish for the two Super Bowl games I mentioned to be omitted, and put other Super Bowl matches that were more memorable in. Put more in. Super Bowl games like Steelers vs Cardinals Super Bowl 43, Saints vs Colts Super Bowl 44, Jets vs Colts Super Bowl 3 (the famous Joe Namath guarantee), Bills vs Giants Super Bowl 25, Rams vs Patriots two Super Bowls, Eagles vs Patriots two Super Bowls, Packers vs Broncos Super Bowl 32, and other Super Bowl games that went down to the wire.

    The line given to the match when 49ers and Steelers play each other "Two teams that have combined to win 11 Super Bowl titles" should be given to the other matchups that also feature two teams with eleven world championship titles such as Cowboys and Steelers, 49ers and Patriots, and Patriots and Cowboys.

    When the Seahawks play the Chargers, Gaudin says "Two former division rivals in the old AFC West". It should also be on the other 3 AFC West teams when Seattle plays. The Broncos (see above), Chiefs, and Raiders.

    Make all the in-state rivalry games be in. There are some that aren't there. Firstly, the one with the Ravens and Redskins, the Battle of the Beltway, was taken away in Madden 20. Bring that one back. The Buccaneers and Dolphins match should have the same line as when the Jaguars play the Dolphins (Two teams on the opposite end of the Sunshine State). The 49ers and Rams is a Northern California against Southern California match, it should have the same lines as when the 49ers play the Chargers, and there are two different lines depending on the stadium played in. Have Cowboys vs Texans (Battle of the Lone Star State). Have Bengals vs Browns (Battle of Ohio). For the Rams and Chargers, maybe you can do this one like you do for the Giants and Jets when the player introduction is being shown and Gaudin talks.

    A memorable playoff game, Epic in Miami, is said when the Chargers play at the Dolphins in Miami. It would be nice if the Ice Bowl is said when the Cowboys play the Packers in Green Bay at Lambeau Field.

    I think it would be great if all teams had a special line for them, in a particular match, said at the kickoff, when they play certain opponents. Right now a few of the teams don't have one. The Browns, Cardinals, Falcons, Jets, Redskins, Texans, and Vikings. Many of those I gave a suggestion for.

    Thanks for reading.
  • If you don’t want to go to the nfl for awhile you can choose how many high school football years you want to be. Max is 4. Then play as many collage seasons until is says you qualify for the nfl. Max 4 years. Then you do the full combine and get drafted to a team.Finally if all I said is not to late but I know you can still add this but can you add WHEN YOU TAKE THR FINAL KNEE AND THE OPPOSITE TEAM HAS NO MORE TIMEOUTS OR THEY ARNT GOING TO YOU THE REST, EVERYONE SHOULD WALK ON THE FEILD AND THE GAME SHOULD END EVEN BEFOR THE TIME RUNS OUT AND THEY SHOULD SHOW THE FINAL TOO

    Madden should seriously add a simple mode where you can build a team of any player current or all time and play your friends or randoms, with a salary cap or without. Have different filters and restrictions for when you play against friends to customize who youre allowed to draft
