Re: Superstar mode

marshall has a 3 year deal... he shouldn't be a FA.

the problem is QBs on non-human teams never progress, so eventually all the teams end up with a bunch of 75-85OVR players and all the QBs have like 70 AWR max.

i was a running back for denver and they passed 45 times in a game and ran 6. 6 runs, for the broncos. Plummer was 8/45 with 4 ints and 12 sacks and they just kept passing. I had a 9.8avg too. That's just general fscked madden AI at work though. they have yet to improve it, though running and blocking AI is a bit better, all the cpu controlled QBs seem to suck donkey balls now.

I think Marshall has a year left on his deal in Madden, either that or he got cut for absolutely no reason. I mean, the AI in Madden last year wasn't that bad compared to this year. I'm probably gonna have a 360 by the time it comes out next year, although there are some things about 360 that dislike in Madden, like you can't edit player ratings or move a person to another position. Hopefully that's fixed next year.

Re: Superstar mode

Man, i'm so pumped after playing my first career game as a strong safety in SS mode. Remember earlier when i said i was making two SS mode careers, and one was a SS and the other was a wideout. Well, today i went back and started up the SS mode career. My dad was a HOF strong safety and my mom was a brain surgeon. Well, today i did the draft, and i dunno where i got drafted because I simmed it, but i got drafted by the Browns.

I went through training camp and did the preseason games, and when the regular season started i was a 94 overall, with 93 speed and acceleration, and 72 awareness. Well, i decided i didn't want to play for the Browns, so i went to my agent before the first regular season game and asked for a trade.

Well, guess where it traded me. That's right, to the Redskins, in exchange for Pierson Prioleau. I was so happy. I didn't care that it gave me negative ego for doing it. Either way, the MNF game against the Vikings rolled around, and i started off great. The thing i didn't like was how easy it is to pick off qb's. Springs got 3, Rogers got 1, Taylor got 2, and Lemar Marshall got one. Springs also forced a fumble that i recovered. It was an awesome game, and the offense was able to record touchdowns off the turnovers pretty easily. In fact, so easily that the final score of the game was 63-0. Mark Brunell threw 7 touchdown passes, which is highly unrealistic, although most of them were a result of the turnovers. Either way, I'll take it, as i get to play for the Skins now. But it's also kind of odd, because when i was a wide receiver in SS mode they almost never threw the ball, and now i'm playing defense in SS mode and they pretty much always throw the ball.

Re: Superstar mode

yeah, the cpu QBs seem to be trash now.

btw, someone figured out how to have two players per team on madden (so one guy can be the QB and another can be the RB or whatever) and it works online so you can play 2v2, which is kinda awesome.

Re: Superstar mode

I'm a TE for the Vikings I love the combo of blocking Recieveing, I've always been a fan of Blocking with a big TE it's fun to pull around the corner and just blow a guy up. I love the Superstar mode, now if I could only get to the Skins! Also not sure if some of ya new this but on PS2 if you press L1 your reciever will wave that he's open and have better chance of getting the ball thrown to you. I'm a 89 speed TE on and I'm averageing 100yrds a game and a Td. and loving every minute of it

You could either ask for a trade and hope you'll end up at the skins, or you can wait until your two year deal is up and hope that the skins make you an offer.

Re: Superstar mode

I had to be traded multiple times to get to MN and since they are my hometown team(originally from Hokah,MN) I didn't wanna gamble again and get stuck on the Giants or worse cowboys!

Re: Superstar mode

Well if you want to be traded to a good team, just save it before asking for a trade, and keep reloading SS mode until it trades you to a team you like.

Re: Superstar mode

Alright, i went back to my WR in SS mode. Instead of doing the whole season with the Jets, i simmed it. At the end of the year, my stats were around 60 receptions, with a little over 700 yards and 4 touchdowns. The running back stats were again skewed. I did make the Pro Bowl again as a kick returner. But check this out. Lemar Marshall, the newly signed MLB for the Oakland Raiders finished with over 200 tackles, 10 sacks, 6 int's, 5 forced fumbles and 3 recoveries, and was not only named Defensive Player of the Year, but MVP as well. Thomas Jones was offensive player of the year with over 1800 rushing yards. I decided to leave and check out free agency instead of resigning with the Jets. I got 5 offers:
A 2 year deal with the Chiefs
A 3 year deal with the Giants
A 2 year deal with New England
A 3 year deal with Dallass
A 2 year deal with Chicago.

I chose the two year deal with New England, because i'd have Tom Brady throwing to me and i'd be the #1.

The 360 version and XB and small rating differences for the Skins some are better on one than the other ??? Its ridiculous.

Re: Superstar mode

So anyways, i'm playing a strong safety in SS mode right now, and i really love it. I'm having a lot of trouble getting interceptions though, usually when the qb throws my way it's away from me and my guy doesn't react enough in time to get there and intercept it. There have also been a couple times where i've been in perfect position, but the ball just hits him in the hands and he drops it.

Re: Superstar mode

I put up madhack and a full .xls of every good SS template you can get (w/ full stats) at Football-Freaks.com (Madden PC, NFL Head Coach PC, NFL News & Football Forums)

best templates:
QB - PB Vick
WR - HoF Randy Moss
HB - HoF All-around
TE - PB gonzo
OL - HoF C (spd), LT ogden (str)
DE - HoF freak
LB - HoF OLB freak, PB MLB freak
FS - HoF playmaker
SS - HoF feared
CB - all 3 PB/HoF are decent

Re: Superstar mode

I have a QB like vick and I was drafted by the Texans. I won the starting job but I hate when lame-o's can't catch the damn ball!
