Madden Development Team Responds to #FixMaddenFranchise

Madden NFL 21

Earlier this week, #FixMaddenFranchise became a trending hashtag on Twitter after a lackluster release of details on the game’s Franchise mode. Today, the executive producer of the Madden franchise responded to the criticism.

Seann Graddy Responds to #FixMaddenFranchise

In a video on Twitter, Madden Executive Producer Seann Graddy stated he wanted to reach out to the Madden community on behalf of the development teams. Graddy said that the developers have heard the complaints of fans.

In the video, Graddy stated regarding the negative feedback, “We see your #FixMaddenFranchise tweets, and we understand your frustration.” Graddy went on to note that the Franchise community is critically important to the developers. The Madden producer also said that they have gone over the complaints from the community.

Later in the video, Graddy said that starting today, the developers are working to improve Franchise mode for “Madden NFL 21 and beyond.” However, Graddy stated that he had no new details to share with fans of the franchise.

Graddy concluded the video by stating that the development team is working from home to improve the game, and that they are committed to getting back to the community regarding Franchise mode, and to tell gamers what their plans for the mode are.

Here’s the full video from Graddy :

They say this every year when we bring up all the issues with madden and they won’t fix these issues and to bitch slap sport gamers in the face hey 10 extra dollars. FUCK YOU MADDEN!! And FUCK YOU EA!!!

If all these BR games can make full scale changes and basically create new game modes on the fly, a large company like EA should be able to fix this in time for the release or shortly after. I hope they take the complaints seriously

He really said that the franchise community is important to them ??? all they care about is MUT since they don’t make any extra off franchise. That’s why it’s gotten so much worse in the last 15-20 years

The 2K series needs to come back and the Madden developers need to be stripped of exclusive rights to the NFL. Competition breeds creativity.

Not a single person has said this so I will. How about making it so you can actually end up on the same team as your friends in Franchise. Or even just allowing you to play on the same team together in general outside of trash 3v3 modes (Just make it 2v2 or custom. Nobody NEEDS a 3rd fucking player) or MUT challenges.

Copy the NCAA model. Be a coach and get recruited to other jobs! I am playing NCAA 12 and the experience is better than any madden game I’ve played in a while

Honestly think about this people. The games about to come out. they are worried about sales due to covid related issues and want to soak up as much money as possible. Please dont tell me you believe they will overhaul franchise mode and add anything we have been asking for? In like 8 weeks? Get fucking real.

They copy and paste franchise mode like they have done (theyve made these “we hear you” comments before) and maybe add one dumbass feature nobody asked for or reintroduce something they took away and then shuve it down your throat like “SEE!? TOTALLY NEW!”

So they’ll fix it for Madden 23 and call it ground breaking

Filbert J Longsnapper

I’ve been saying for years they need to change up the commentary. Don’t have the same two guys do every single game. Have 5-6 and have them rotate, is it an AFC game, on ESPN, or Primetime? But when you play 200-300 games and you hear the same quip over and over and over. Makes you wanna not play.

Adrian Camarena

Filbert J Longsnapper smarter commentary would be good too. I hate hearing “great block by the offensive line” when it was either my full back or tight end who did the blocking. Various other instances where the commentary is too generic for what actually happens.

Brian Kilbane

Just make a new Head Coach game. Problem solved. If they want Madden to be focused on online play, just make a separate game devoted solely to a fantastic Franchise mode-type experience

I loved both the original and the 09 version. If people are constantly complaining about Franchise (I’m one of them), and EA doesn’t want to commit resources to updating and revamping it, then just make it a completely separate game. That way you can make it as in-depth as people want

It’s literally going to be a copy and paste game with slightly different mechanics and graphics. If you go into practice mode on 20 go into the camera and zoom in to the back of the bleachers and you’ll see “madden 19” on a banner above the stands. Copy and paste is what they know supposedly

I’d like to play like 1 franchise game where my team doesn’t go for a fake field goal or punt, fuck it up, and cost me the game. That really shouldn’t be too much to ask. The algorithm is completely wonky. In a player vs player game, theres generally 3-4 fake special teams plays… in an actual NFL season, you see a fake special teams play maybe 3-4 times year.

Give me NCAA! EA is never going to step up because there’s no competition. They don’t have to step up so they won’t the game is trash it’s no longer about skill it’s about glitches, nanos, and plays that are unbeatable just because of the way the game is built. Don’t even get me started on Ultimate team. That used to be awesome I remember when it was just an ad on That used to be awesome I remember when it was just an add-on now whoever has the most micro transactions Are going to be the “best players” Not to mention all of the stuff you have to do just to get an 80 overall player. They need to give up the license so 2K and have a chance of bringing something new to the table. All EA does is take out a good feature added back on two years later and then called in some new stuff. Every year I say I’m not buying it but I end up buying it because it’s all we have. This year for sure I’m not giving them any more my money I’m just gonna play 2K 21 and watch football on TV at least I don’t have to worry about losing to some bum who can’t really play the game or knows anything about football.

Remember when they use to do cool shit like being able to play with teams like the 90’s Cowboys or the 2007 patriots? Also remember when skill actually mattered? When you could use or a safety I didn’t have to worry about a glitch letting a 5’10 receiver catch over at 6’1 safety that’s in position?
