Madden NFL 21's next huge Franchise mode update will correct a place which players have complained about : AI-controlled teams drafting first-round quarterbacks when the club already has talent, even rookie talent, in that position. The new logic that's coming states that an AI staff in Franchise will"deprioritize drafting an initial round QB" if some one of seven conditions are satisfied. Further, if a group has a starting quarterback over age 35, they'll consider accepting a replacement. EA Tiburon, the developing studio, spelled out those requirements in a blog article on Wednesday, but did not say exactly when this patch would release.
"Like real life, there can still be times where a staff decides a player is simply too great to pass up, depending on the situation," Madden's developers composed. 1 principle increasing a team's interest in drafting a first-round quarterback: When the current starting quarterback is more than 35 years old, then they'll be interested in a replacement, regardless of his evaluation or traits.
The following patch will even provide several requested tools and controllers to commissioners for their online franchises. Including the capacity to reverse free agent signings in the offseason; to set gameplay assists (such as Heat Seeker tackling, or player-switching assists) on a global basis, and level the competition field; and house rules regulating how many times a play can be called in one game, or how long a player has to wait before calling the same play again. Developers say these attributes are long requested by the community.
In September, developing studio EA Tiburon stated three significant patches are coming to the game (starting in November), and another update is the next. A fix of the game general trade logic will wait before the third spot, EA Tiburon wrote. "To move forward on improved trade logic, it was important to admit there wasn't a magical quick fix," developers wrote. Franchise style's player-trading has been long criticized, as either too simple to manipulate, or even for delivering trades where teams abandon great players for no great reason.
EA Tiburon says it is working on"new baseline scales around player and draft select worth, by reconsidering every variable and modifier that's presently used in trades." Developers are also addressing"top community loopholes across AI trades," and contemplating improvements or enhancements to the way the AI evaluates offers from other teams.
