  • The first round rookies have been added to Madden NFL 16 Ultimate Team
    Posted April 29th, 2016 at 7:30 am 2 Comments »
    Ever since 2012 EA Sports has been adding incoming rookies early to Madden, several months before they make their official debut with the edition that represents their first actual season in the league. They've been able to do this by introducing them into Madden Ultimate Team and that has continued now for a sixth straight year with Madden NFL 16. All 31 first rounders taken in the 2016 NFL Draft can now be found in Madden 16's Ultimate Team mode. There are two different types of cards:...
  • False starts have become an issue with the latest update for Madden NFL 16
    Posted April 27th, 2016 at 11:00 am 15 Comments »
    Yesterday a patch went out for Madden NFL 16 to add in the new Salary Cap Ranked mode to Ultimate Team. Soon after the update was applied reports started coming in from the community that false starts were occurring at an alarming rate. In a test run today on All-Pro with default settings there were a total of 10 false starts committed in just the first half of the game with 6 of them coming from the CPU. That's in line with what others have been seeing. Users can adjust and avoid doing ...
  • Salary Cap Ranked now available in Madden NFL 16 Ultimate Team
    Posted April 26th, 2016 at 10:30 am No Comments »
    In an update that went out today the brand new mode Salary Cap Ranked has been added to Ultimate Team in Madden NFL 16. Not affecting any of the other ways to play, Salary Cap Ranked places a value on players who are selected from Item Binders, with 34 of them being chosen for the team while being fit under the assigned 1,000 point cap. There is an entry fee of one "Event Ticket" and once the teams are formed the challenge is to win six games before losing two, which is just like Draft Ch...
  • 2016 Madden Mock Draft
    Posted April 21st, 2016 at 2:45 pm 1 Comment »
    Everyone knows that certain attributes shine through more than others in sports video games. There's been a consistency to what many of those qualities are for as long as can be remembered from sport to sport and individual franchise to franchise. Because of that, some players prove more valuable than others, often exceeding their real-world ability while some others fail to have their abilities translate completely. With all that in mind, it's time for the annual Madden Mock Draft, wher...
  • New salary cap mode coming to Ultimate Team in Madden NFL 16
    Posted April 15th, 2016 at 9:30 am 21 Comments »
    It's April, the NFL Draft is right around the corner, and promotion of Madden NFL 17 will be getting underway soon. Despite that a new mode is about to roll out in Madden NFL 16. A patch is coming in a few weeks that will deliver "Salary Cap Ranked Beta" to Ultimate Team. Salary Cap Ranked Beta is not just a new game mode, it’s a fundamental change that is felt throughout the entire Madden Ultimate Team experience by assigning a Cap Value to every player and redefining how to assemble a l...
  • Only one new rule for next season will affect Madden NFL 17
    Posted March 23rd, 2016 at 1:15 pm 23 Comments »
    Last year the NFL instituted a new rule that moved the extra point kicks back to the 15 yard line. It should have made the most boring waste-of-time play in Madden something more interesting and strategic. Unfortunately it wasn't the case as kicking from that distance remained practically automatic in Madden NFL 16. Throughout the NFL season the impact of the change proved significant. Extra points were successful 94% of the time down from 99% the season prior. 71 were missed in the 2015...
  • Madden NFL 16 patch tackles some exploits
    Posted February 23rd, 2016 at 9:45 am 5 Comments »
    It's unusual for a patch to go out following the end of a season, but a fifth one for Madden NFL 16 - which won the 2015 award for Best Post-Release Support - went out earlier today. Unlike the past updates, which addressed issues, game balancing, and added features, this one is primarily focused on eliminating exploits. It's probably not a coincidence it comes a few weeks after the Madden Challenge concluded where many questionable tactics were on display. The full list of areas affe...
  • Madden NFL 16’s biggest ratings risers and fallers for the complete season
    Posted February 17th, 2016 at 3:15 pm 2 Comments »
    Who were the most improved and most disappointing players during the 2015-16 NFL season? Based on the ratings movement in Madden NFL 16, which was updated gradually with weekly attribute changes, those players can be identified by comparing the opening day ratings to the final ones that went out following the Super Bowl. Leading the way in gains were Thomas Rawls and Richie Incognito, followed by the likes of Doug Martin, David Amerson, Carson Palmer, Kawann Short, and Eric Berry. Among t...
