Offline Multiplayer for Career Mode(Franchise)

It seems EA is going to cut out the offline multiplayer for Madden 13. You can no longer play with a friend or family member in Career(Franchise) Mode. You can only control one team per Career. Let's bring back the ability to control more than 1 team so we can have the ability to play with up to 32 friends again in OFFLINE CAREER! The previous Madden's had it, so why not this one!

  1. There may just be a simple work around to control more than one team to make offline CCM work for more than one person. Check the CCM FAQ Comments at MyMaddenPad.com

  2. I cancelled my preorder and switched it to nba2k13.me and about 12 of my buddys link up at the spot and run franchises,dynasty,association depending on what we are playing and compete in a league.competition and banging it out fighting to see who wins more championships,developing players,social interaction offline with a group of men and women who work hard to buy the game and choose to play offline together or have to play offline because they can't afford internet in these times is what its all about.ive very rarely ever played online,madden has been a staple among me and my friends offline for years..we planned and were ready for our trades among each other,etc etc and now we have elder scrolls madden?they took over a dozen mAdden faithful out of the game...they don't get it,make it fun for all gamers,and loyal fans,online or offline gamers.offline multiplayer is the hottest thing about madden...damn first year without my favorite game.just can't or won't play alone or online its not for us

  3.

  4. I agree 100%. Every year I do a offline multiplayer franchise. This was a big disappointment. I guess I have to play Madden 12 with updated roster and created rookies that I purchased online. Why can't we use our offline rosters in the CCM? Please don't forget your offline players EA!!!

  5. My friends love coming over to my man cave to have awesome Madden battle nights with a few beers. We have always played in offline franchise mode so we could play the season schedules and matchups for that week. You need to allow multiplayer use in all modes of this game. Not everyone wants to play online. I've purchased Madden every year since early 90's and now it seems like you are forcing us to either play by ourselves or online. Exhibition is not satisfactory at all. This is a huge dissappointment when I just paid for 2 copies of Madden 13 which I will be returning if this is not addressed ASAP!!! What moroon came up with this stupid idea???? We want to play with our friends at home offline in franchise mode.... So please look at the percentage of games sold versus how many are online users of the game.

  6. I only play sports games with friends to do offline franchise modes. That and the fact that they took out fantasy draft really killed this Madden for me. I'm sure next year fantasy draft will be back, because people are having panic attacks from it, but local franchise might not. I guess EA thinks my friends and I are all going to buy Madden and Xbox Live to play together, essentially forcing us to play apart. In reality, I don't see any of us buying Madden 13.

  7. This is absolutely RIDICULOUS that this feature has been removed. I almost took my game back. When I called a few of my ex college teammates and asked them about Madden they told me they took their game back. The industry is just trying to milk all of the money they can out of people. Encouraging online franchises to sell more copy's while diluting the quality of the INDIVIDUAL'S game smh

  8. Well I have been buying Madden for well over a Decade, and my buddy just brought his copy over, and I will not be buying it.... This is absurd that EA has taken out multiplayer..... congratulations, I returned NCAA and now I am not purchasing Madden and telling everyone... I know my one copy doesn't mean much, but we played in an offline league/get-together, and there goes 20 copies.

  9. yeah,ea marketing decided rob fans of their offline experience -sell more copies .if friends can only play online,the idea is that everybody will buy and get online,more madden sales .we all always purchased madden yearly to practice ,get better,our kids could play,and whoever was hosting would have it.now out of 12 only two got it and one of the two returned it.its not the same..ea did do a few pretty good things with the game but the offline absence is a deal breaker.it might be time for ea to have competition so they do more for fans instead of less

  11. My brother and I have played offline coop franchise for years. It's literally the ONLY mode I play on madden. I don't even play franchise on my own. EA has taken the one mode I and so many others have used solely leading up to this title.

    If you go on OS sports you will see forums of how many bugs and AI problems there are in this game which makes me wonder, why didn't they keep most of the modes the same and focus entirely on gameplay this year. The play now version is fun but with no franchise for my brothers create a players on the steelers this has no replay value for me.

    This game has the potential to be great, but they bit off more than they can chew this year with tampering with the modes. 3 games in connected careers and I was bored.

  12. you cant even play on the same team in online career mode! why would they take this option out for online/offline?! it just seems pointless to take something out that doesn't hinder the game in anyway except for adding another way to play career(franchise) mode!

  14. Nobody that plays offline with friends on the same team understands why this feature was removed. Absolutely ridiculous. COME ON EA!! This is the BEST part of the game for us!

  15. I will be returning my Madden for refund unless this feature is added through a patch. It should not be hard at all. The capabilities are there if you can do it in a play now setting you should be able to do it via offline connected careers. The basis of this game is playing with and against friends and I really hope that comes back.

  21. They want to make the game a online game, that's why they did this. Since this is the wave of the future. What makes me sad is it killed playing with my son. Oh yea I can start a coach and make him play as my team or whom ever i might be playing, but as for having that football spirit, being able to say my team is better or vise a virsa thats gone

  22. EA has shown itself to be what they truly are. The WORST customer service in the USA in any industry, and the dangers of any company in having a monopoly on a product ( NFL Players and Game). They can cheat the public any way they see fit for Greed purposes. There is no other place to go for NFL fans. Forcing people who can not afford it to play online and into buying multiple copies of the game is criminal and most certainly racially motivated. More inner city youths have barriers to entry to online play for many reasons. EA has found that they do not purchase additional products or upgrades like other demographics, so their business model in search for additional revenue streams have decided to cut off black inner city youths especially and families of all color that suffer from economic struggle in general. They hope to use their exclusive rights monopoly power (which will be challenged in court for anti trust violations) to force people to purchase their online pass for buying a used game, thus cutting out the secondary market. This power move, Greed motivated action will blow up in EA's face. They will be sued into Oblivion and that is the only way to hurt them. Right where their stockholders will bail on them. The bottom line. Myself and hundreds of thousands of others disgusted with EA's business ethic and horrific Customer Service will never purchase another EA product again. They have made ungodly profits from the Madden franchise as the result of this monopolistic enterprise with the NFL. After all the lawsuits are finished, this case with AE will be studied in schools for generations as to how corporate Greed, racially profiling customers, money at all costs motivated corporations such as this have self destructed and the crime perpetrated on the public that they embody.

  23. I like making my own Franchise Offline Rosters, and Making my own team, and players, and I love doing franchise with the edited roster, so when I make multiple players and put them on one team, I like to have fun. I set their raitings, and improve them. Sometimes for just silly fun, I like setting the whole team's OVR Raiting to 99 just to run around and be silly. But MOST the time, I would edit and MAKE my own rosters to modify the players that are there, and I believe they messed up the player raitings. Like the one had DeSean Jackson at 74 Overall, When he should of been in the high 80's to low 90's. So I fix their raitings.

    So I sat down with every player on the roster on every team, go over that player and make modifications to each of their raitings to what I thought matched that player, IF I felt that player needed editing. I would save my roster, and put it up online for people on the internet to download those rosters and to see what they thought of them. Sometimes I would take donations for it, when people asked me to do it. But I made them for everyone. I miss doing that. I want to see a madden where I can do that again.

  24. Also, add a Tournament/Season mode with Fantasy Draft. The idea is to have a fantasy football league within Madden that is fully customizable. The number of teams in the league can range from 2-32 and can be a mix of user and CPU teams. There is an option to do a fantasy draft with the entire league pool and with legendary players. Format can be a Season, Playoff Bracket, or Round Robin. It can be played online or offline, and can be easily transitioned between the two. The idea is that 12 of my friends can sit there and draft fantasy teams, and duke it out in a league without having to do the full Franchise mode.
