EA College Game

Prev1
Not sure where to post, so doing it in General Discussion. @EA_Blueberry, EA should really use me as an advisor for the college game since it is making a return. I'm sure I can speak for most players of the game on what should be brought back;

• Imported Draft Classes
• Coaching Carousel
• Editing rosters
• Teabuilder website
• Road To Glory
• Dynasty Mode

As well as bringing in some new features;

•Ability to edit any non-licensed team
• Ability to create up to 8 dif uniform setups (college is constantly changing uniforms)
• Adding in an import for coaches (meaning allowing new coaches to be in Madden)
• Adding certain power-ups/abilities that may push players 1 to be better, but also give theose guys the higher ability to achieve Madden abilities and higher draft stock for imported draft classes

Amongst many more ideas I have, that a lot of us used to love, and a lot of us would clamor for given then game being out. And as always, the ability to make our Madden franchises that much more in-depth and realistic.

  • Hopefully we'll be able to export franchise players from NCAAF to Madden Franchise.
  • Please push the team builder feature! It maybe the best feature ever in any football game! Allow us to create FCS, D-2 and D3 conferences! I really hope they add a top notch tv presentation halftime highlights, etc.... please allow double jersey numbers per team!
  • Y'all seriously setting yourselves up for heartbreak. Knowing EA, this game will be heavily focused on MUT, the Yard or other nonsense that no one wants

    @kennylc76 I agree, prob will be, but all we can do is hope. In a perfect world, the college game would be the same as the old NCAA series, to at least start w/.

    In addition to every possible play and formation, I'd love to see a play creation suite. Complete with every detail down to the type of blocking done. I want the works and EASPORTS owes us. As a 40 year old man, I've been a fan since Bill Walsh days. Ncaa 14 has been my main game for most of the last decade and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for it.
  • I hope I can play a new edition of ncaa football as well. Right now I can only play ncaa football on the super console.

  • With the announcement of college football coming back to the game screen, what are the chances that EA gets the Team Builder page back up and running? I'm sure it will get a lot of your fans excited for the new game coming back!

    Thank you for spinning up a wish list thread for the next College game! We don't have any specific information to share right now and all I can really do is ask you to stay tuned into our official channels for more updates to come. Super exciting news though! Can't wait for this myself.

    I know Team Builder was a huge fan favorite. No idea if they're planning to bring that specific website back or create something of their own, but I'm sure they're fully aware of the positive impact they had on it when they're discussing game design.

    This will be a great thread to share what you loved about the past titles and what you'd like to see in the future one. Please continue to share your must haves!
  • @EA_Blueberry Hopefully they do something as creatively free as teambuilder in the least. I used to have a ton of uploads for my teams. Recreated a lot of movie and TV teams, along w/ the AFL at the time.

    But I've got a ton of ideas for the game that'd make it solid as all hell.
  • I hope that the cover vote contest comes back for the return of this game.

  • @The-Sporty-Hero I'd sort of be surprised if they have a real college player on the cover due to the current NCAA rules. Maybe one of the teams that r in, or possibly coaches, but that's about it atm.
  • I was thinking if they have a college player on the cover it could be bracket between best walk on, Heisman or NFL rookie season long shots. Put them in a tier and let the voting begin.

  • They'd add more known players over lesser known college talent. And even then, again, unless it is a past player, I don't see a current player being part of the cover (at least as of now). In keeping w/ ur idea, I could see brackets setup to vote, using Heismans of past, college legends, if u go lesser known college players, I'd say use maybe breakout NFL players who weren't tops in college. As well as maybe the college draft class the yr prior who r now in the NFL as the cover, maybe even straight up the ROTY. But unless the rules change for college players to be paid for likeness, etc, they need to stay away from current college talent, so we don't lose the game series, again.
  • NCAA street mode styled dynasty would be a good idea.

  • As long as it was separate from the actual dynasty, I'd be ok w/ that. Or some sort of toggle option.

    Yeah I was thinking that it would be a option to toggle on or off. I was also thinking that it could include ncaa football future stars which would be kind of like fantasy football.

  • One other thing is that in my mode you could pick the theme of your celebrations based on the circumstances in your dynasty.

    Yeah, but what u aren't understanding there is they can't use names or likenesses to actual players, so they'd all have to be generic. It's the only way a fantasy styled anything could work, UNLESS, rules change for players to be allowed to be paid for likeness in the game. That was the issue at hand last go around w/ the series, they need to stay away from actual college players if the NCAA rules don't change. That's also y, unless they used college legends of old, that they couldn't really have a MUT mode to the game, which I hope, they don't ever give us anyway.

    One other thing is that in my mode you could pick the theme of your celebrations based on the circumstances in your dynasty.

    I love the idea about picking celebrations, it's something so minor, but could add a bit of something to the game. Maybe have a 2 step process where u pick ur celebrations for the team, and do the Madden style where u can use the analogs to execute them all during big plays.
