NCAA 13 Rosters in Teambuilder Fixed

Yesterday EA Sports launched the 2013 version of Teambuilder for NCAA Football 13 but with it a number of issues were immediately identified. The biggest – and most concerning considering similar circumstances necessitated a patch with NCAA 10 – were rosters so inconceivably bad that it was clear a mistake had been made. 

The question was whether it was a Teambuilder issue or if a bad set of rosters had made it in as the base for NCAA 13.

The company finally responded late in the day by relaunching the site and with it what is presumably now the proper roster set that will be featured in NCAA 13. Incoming freshman, graduated seniors, and those who left early for the NFL are now better represented.

Of course the full rosters will have their fair share of issues given that they’re not intended to represent exactly all the real players for each school. They are also locked down months in advance of the game’s release so significant events such as transfers or scholarship removals may have missed the cut. All things considered the state of the rosters appear to be comparable to recent years for the series.

The dated uniforms and other inaccuracies however do remain a concern. New unis for many teams this year appear to have been omitted while others like Washington are now on their fourth year of being incorrect.

    Those uniforms are pretty cool. Looks like I found out who I’ll be building up this year!

  • SOC53

    Northwestern as well hasn’t seen updated uniforms. EA has had the wrong ones for 3 seasons now and hasn’t bothered to include any of their alternates. Worse though are the countless other inaccuracies. Generic stadiums for UMass and Texas State, no Pinstripe Bowl, messed up field arts for B1G teams, and South Alabama doesn’t even appear to be in the game. It really feels like EA is slowly giving up on NCAA.

    • kingjames

      from what i heard they going to update uniforms and stuff as the season progresses in real life not sure if true yet trying to confirm it

      • p0t64

        still nothing official on that from what ive seen. they may not have followed through on it

        • James Kraft

          Actually, it was confirmed in the latest Game Informer

          • bigturboweenie

            well why don’t u do us a favor and send us a link instead of just jibber-jabbing. people keep saying, “OH IT WAS CONFIRMED HERE, OR THERE”, but nobody has a link to prove it. stop lying.

          • James Kraft

            Are you butt hurt? Do you own research then…I would have given you a link if you were nicer about it.

          • James Kraft

            Do you own research then…I would have given you a link if you were nicer about it.

          • Christopher5

            its cause the link dosn’t exist…why would they update uniforms throughout the season when they have never done this? Come on man..

          • bigturboweenie

            confirms u making it up.

          • James Kraft

            ahem…Uniform Store? Looks like someone looks a little foolish right now.

          • bigturboweenie

            jesucristo! i was saying the 2012 season new uniforms did not come out when the game was released. and YES, i do know about the uniform store. but EA didn’t release this information until AFTER i posted my first comment to you. first time EA sports has EVER done this. so stfu.

      Where the hell have you been? We already knew Southern Alabama wasnr gonna be in the game. Over a week ago.

      • SOC53

        Not sure where the hell I’ve been. Overly and unneeded pompous tone aside, it still looks like EA has missed a ton.

      I think the Pinstripe Bowl isn’t available because of the Yankees and Yankee Stadium. They’d have to negotiate the rights seperately, then deal with the fact that the stadium will not have the traditional set-up.They could just use a generic stadium, but then people would complain about that.

      Regardless, it’s not a big loss to not have a bowl where Big East #4 plays Big 12 #7. It’s like bemoaning the loss of the Ticket City or BBVA Compass Bowl. These bowl are around to satisfy the “everyone gets a trophy for participation” generation.

  • Keith.

    With the player likeness lawsuit still ongoing, it takes pretty big gravitas for EA to continue to make these accurate.

    • Oliver

      Not like if they made it more inaccurate now it would matter. Theyre being sued for what they have already done.

    • longshore

      the word you’re looking for is “balls”, not “gravitas”.

  • chuck

    Can anyone say if Gillette Stadium is in the game for sure?

    • SOC53

      Doesn’t look like it from Team Builder. Doesn’t make sense. Other NFL stadiums are used, and it should be fairly easy considering the stadium will obviously be in Madden. I always think back to when U of I was used as the Bears’ home stadium in Madden several years back. If that was possible, how hard would it be to use more NFL stadiums in NCAA?

    Nice now we can see the ratings. Hopefully the fat hamburger guy an his crew leave so the can get a team that cares to be accurate. A team that focuses on the details not just for Nike but Adidas, UA and Russell schools(I know GA Tech use to be with them).

    • bigturboweenie

      agreed. the hamburgler had his chance for what seems like forever…year after year after year after year. it’s time for a new head to grace the mantle. the fat guy is getting on my nerves…

      no new face masks, out-dated uniforms…oh gawd.

    • T-Milly

      Where are the ratings on teambuilder?

    georgia running back i.crowell was kicked off the team today

    • Jesus

      He got in trouble and probably will be kicked off, but as of now he is still on the team. As of now….

  • Christopher5

    i must be doing something wrong when i go to the teambuilder website it only gives me ncaa 12? How do you go to ncaa 13 teambuilder?

    • Christopher5

      never mind i see how it works now.

  • Christopher5

    i must be doing something wrong when i go to the teambuilder website it only gives me ncaa 12? How do you go to ncaa 13 teambuilder?

  • Andrew

    When I play the big ten championship game in the Indy dome am I going to still see the players breaths like its 40 degrees out…?

  • Skihawks

    What does it even matter? With the ability to edit rosters and obtain named roster files, inaccurate in-game rosters mean little.

    how do you get to the team’s rosters on teambuilder?

    • Christopher5

      go to the teambuilder website, its linked in the article pasta wrote. Then you have to log in by clicking on the create a team button. then when your in just go to the end were it says rosters and you can scroll through all the teams.

  • Scottie Brown

    evening to all! I am having trouble importing my team for teambuilder to the xbox. Is there something new that I’m not doing cause its not the same as NCAA 12 OR NCAA11. Thanks.
