With the second patch for Madden 10 just about being wrapped up and nearing submission for certification EA Sports has posted a blog noting some of the things that have been worked on. As previously mentioned this patch is very community input-centric having taken many suggestions into consideration to enhance the gameplay experience. Below are some of the things confirmed for the patch however this does not represent the full list. You can check out the full blog posting here and more details should be coming in the near future.

  • Improvements in covering of the flats
  • Improved pursuit angles
  • CPU takes sacks more often instead of the last second throws while getting hit
  • Worked on eliminating various exploits such as with the RB Direct Snap
  • Fixing of problems caused by first patch such as black squares for numbers on some helmets
  • Addition of Seahawks alternate uniforms
  • Improvements to simmed stats in Franchise mode
  • Other updates not specified yet to online, replays, uniforms, presentation, and more

    Fact is,most of who critique the Madden Franchise,are football junkies.Madden is the only reason Im into console gaming.period.Have bought every Madden game out since the 95.Im into realistic football game. I hear stories about NFL 2k.But never tried it.I dont mind Madden having exclusive NFL rights.But if they are going to do that…make it right.Even take a year off to get it right.Most of us be cool with that. With all the problems we find from year to year…Madden rocks. An I hope EA is not just feeding off that…But its awesome that they are trying to get it right…even with patches…not many franchises do that. Im not digging the new settings.The all Madden mode to me has always been unrealistic mode..but now even more with missing animations..etc…so that All Madden is just now the cpu cheat mode…Ive just changed to custom mode.All Pro is set at 10..I just use custom settings and set it to 12. The penalty sliders are problems..When set at full,that should mean the penalty is called every time it happens…NOT is called more…or on field goals. Thats seems like a simple idea…why EA messed that up is beyond me..They have been doing it for years. I know they have short time fro year to year..But like I said take a year off..I would be cool with that. All that said…Madden rocks…has its problems…but still my favorite game every year.

    they really need to fix it when you finish a game of superstar mode and it freezes (doesnt happen everytime but every other game or so)

    I think the flat is ok now. Make some of these whiners get a better game plan. Man to man does'nt stop everything. I know how about when teams where retro uniforms adapt the statium, the field and uniniform accesseries. Take the Bucs for example. The end zones, the logo on the fifty and the perimader should changed to what it was when the teams wore the those uniforms. Players whering black asseceries should be defaulted to orange or white. You know like ankle tape and rist bands. That would be cool.

Looks like ea will tell us anthing to rake up our hard earned money! as amatter of fact Ian and crew didnt take off to work on the patch or rosters, no wait for it…………………………………………………………..they are on a cushy vacation that was paid for by our money we spent on this lazyattmpt at a football game so thanks ea, for treating us fans who pay your bills like shit!! I for one will never buy another game that goes by the madden name ever, no matter how much you guys lie and say the game is better, because its obvious you fags will say anything to steal our money!! i have never in my gaming life been this dissapointed about a game, ive only made it halfway through1 season before i frisbeed that bitch out my third story apartment, so basically i paid 65 dollars for a cheap ass frisbee. THANKS ALOT LIARS

    Hey Pasta, do you have any idea if the block kick-off glitch is going to be adressed in the next patch coming up? If anyone one else has this problem or knows if it's going to be fixed, please let me know.

    How about allowing the home team to dictate what jersey options road team has. Thats the way it use to be and that the way it is in real life. Nothing ticks me off more than when I am the home team wearing my dark home jersey some genius selects his dark home jersey too.

    You shouldnt be able to stop the run with corners. When in a heavy run formation and players.

    I think you should be able to load the new rosters into an offline franchise. Many people like playing with the most up to date rosters and I dont want to have to start my franchise over when a new roster comes out and there are some drastic changes. We should be able to load the new roster right into our current franchise so we dont need to start a new franchise. I have been waiting for this feature for ages!!

    • Roy

      Very true that would make this game over the top!

    anyone else get tired of offline franchise because you can draft a stud in every round?
    take the jack english draft, i got jack english (traded for 1st overall pick), boma in round 2, round 3 i picked up a linebacker (torian watts or the other awesome a potential olb) got leron james in the 5th, in the 4th got a te phoenix bible with a potential and also got prince justin. all a potentials because the scouting bar is ordered from best potential, it's ridiculous.

    my personal belief is that potential should be hidden and not something that can be seen, just like real life. i don't want to be able to know that the guy i picked in round 1 is a D potential and redraft that position next year, i think you should have to see the performances themselves, if the guy just stinks and his ratings don't go up you can figure he's got a low potential, and therefore he's a bust.
    you shouldn't be able to get so many 80's in late rounds, i think there should be the odd talented player in a late round like 1 per draft, but all the immediate high ratings should be in the first 2 rounds, their potentials differentiating them.
    therefore a good draft is based on looking at things like their 40 times and size, college production (we're next gen, i'm sure if you remove something lame like madden moments- nice touch but i'd rather have an amazing franchise- and put in like a parallel collegiate season, or at least certain players being division touchdown leader, sack leader etc.)
    i'd also like to have a working Injured Reserve that the cpu actually uses! it's ridiculous how it makes no difference to your roster number and cap hit.

    this might look like a mess but i feel at least having the option to hide player potential should be achievable, as should sorting through the draft classes and finding gems in POTENTIAL instead of OVR in the later rounds (with exceptions of course but not too many)

    hell customisable draft classes?
    so i can actually recreate the next 2 years draft classes or something?
    man, franchise is annoying me right now, my team is too good and there's no competition.

    in addition its ridiculous that in the 4th quarter cpu qbs become perfect, they can be sacked on 1st and 2nd down and then complete a perfect ball on 3rd and 28 and the qb is jim sorgi or like jamarcus russell. it doesn't make it fun.
    obviously money plays should be eradicated, dodgy stats should be sorted (season 1 i had about 18 players with 100 tackles plus, majority of sacks coming from 34 DE's also, which is ridiculous)

    this is all do-able. i'm not gonna moan and say i'm never going to buy madden again i love football too much and it's still a GOOD GAME, but there are some things they can do easily, i don't buy time and budgetary constraints either as it IS EA here, invest, you know the profits are gonna be rolling- ANOTHER GRIP. just-eat adverts IN GAME, wtfffff? no way, i don't mind having real stadium sponsors instead of scarn paper co. and vandelay world bank (every stadium is one of these 2 btw. bit of a joke)
    snickers and sprint is all realistic, however, a little pop up that means you can't see your Tight End is a joke.

    Downloadable Content is a joke too, this AFL thing should be unlocked by winning a superbowl or something not paid for. as should being able to play a superstar season as a real player. i think you are taking liberties there too. if i want to do a season as Peyton Manning then i shouldn't have to pay a few dollars for that right, 50 bucks is enough straight up.
    and weekly roster updates are great, but quit boosting one game wonders, it unbalances the game too much! only like give a stat increase to players like Odom who before he got injured made loads of plays consistently and not like Henne who after his first start did well and went up to a high 70. it's a joke.

  • old madden fan

    i liked not having potential and if you do good with anyone with a certain stat they do as well as the next person. for example i had matt forte but barely used him and with a potential and a 300 yard season he went all the way up to a 95 but reggie bush had 1500 yards and won mvp but only went to an 83 because of his potential. people need to go up much more by performance and not data pre set in the game

    I am playing offline franchise with the Colts and I was tied with the Patriots at the end of the season. However, I beat them in the regular season. Yet they got home field advantage in the playoffs.

    Also, the Steelers and the Ravens (in the same division) had to play in the wild card playoff week and instead of the two teams being split apart because they are in the same division they had to play each other the first week of the playoffs.

    AND FINALLY CAN THEY PLEASE FIX THE LUCAS OIL STADIUM ROOF. I AM SO SICK OF THE ROOF BEING "CLOSED" AND THEN ON A VIEW BETWEEN PLAYS YOU CAN SEE THE STADIUM OPEN DURING THE SAME GAME. SOOOOOOOOOOO SICK OF IT. SUCH AN EASY VISUAL BUG TO SEE AND YET IT SPLIPPED THROUGH GA RELEASE AND THE 1ST PATCH SO SO SO SO SO SO SICK OF SEEING IT.
