    EA Sports unveiled a new spectator mode during yesterday's Madden Challenge. The mode was a third person view of the competitive gameplay from the game's built in broadcast view. This has been a feature that has been talked about going back to Madden 25 (Maybe even Madden 13) when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were first announced. Other games have already incorporated a spectator mode for their games and it appears as though EA has finally caught up to them with Madden.


    Since the technology is already there, it makes sense that they would incorporate that into Madden 18. This would allow streamers to broadcast their games wwithout fear of an online opponent looking at their plays and adjustments. It would also give leagues like ours a fresh new way to dress up our play-by-play broadcasts and make them look much more like real life broadcasts on Saturday and Sunday.

    What do you think? Would you use the new spectator mode in your broadcasts? Would you like to watch league broadcasts with a more NFL-like feel to them on Madden 18?

    The biggest thing for me in any sports game is always franchise mode and the depth of it. Big picture wise I've got out of the habit of playing madden so it will take something to blow me away to make me buy it. The fall of the year is busy with real life football, high school games, new tv shows, and other video games which I didn't play much of in the fall this year

    I've always been someone that can overlook the gameplay side of it for features. On the field matchups is huge for me I want to be able to put my #1 CB and assign him to the #1 WR pre game so he will guard him no matter where he lines up. I want to be able to set press coverage, or 5 yard cushion etc on each WR. I want to be able to set it different for 1st down and 3rd down and yards to go. I want to be able to double team a WR every play or every 3rd down. They may be a way to do these kind of things now just for me personally I don't have the stick skills to do all that pre play. So I want to be able to set it pre game so I don't have to worry about It during the game

    It's hard for me to go in detail off the top of my head about the depth about franchise and some of the things I want to see. The draft classes you can customize need to be able to share so I can download others. Like I'm doing with my nba 2k in year 7 I want the option to put the 84 draft class in my franchise to spice it up. Add a senior bowl game where I can play as players pre draft. I would have to go through some offseasons on this years madden and draft to talk more accurate about them. From what I expect/heard it's in online draft round 4 online league is useless as all the talent is gone and offline it's to easy to draft well. I want more bells and whistles like the practice squad that was added this year.
