Features and Improvements
Battle for Air Supremacy

Total Control Passing:
Place the ball where only your receiver can get it with body-relative throws including high-point, low-point, back-shoulder, and the ever-popular touch pass. Become the ultimate dual-threat and terrorize defenses with new pressure avoidance and QB scramble controls.
Receiver/Defender Controls:
Dictate the outcome of each passing play while the ball is in the air for the first time ever in Madden. For receivers, go for the highlight reel with the ‘aggressive’ catch or move the chains with the ‘possession catch’. On defense, disrupt the outcome of each play using the new ‘play ball’ and ‘hit receiver’ mechanics. Receivers and defenders deliver the most authentic exchanges to date with new press and zone-chuck interactions, contextual hand-fighting, and a variety of 2-man interactions at the catch point including pass interference penalties, tip balls, knock outs and simultaneous possession catches.

Playmaker Broadcast

Integrated Broadcast Graphics:
Your playmaker highlight reel has arrived with new player spotlights, dynamic goals and achievements, and innovative on-the-field cameras bringing you closer to the game than ever before. Making plays has never been this much fun and rewarding!

Game Modes

Connected Franchise:
Whether playing solo or online with friends, your quest to build an NFL dynasty comes complete with a brand new scouting and draft system as well as all-new dynamic goals throughout each game. Develop players with Game Prep and build your teams’ confidence through performance and front office transactions. Balance keeping players’ confidence up, to increase abilities and build player XP.

Click here for tons of Franchise bullet points:
Exclamation Online Franchise FINALLY gets its own REAL PRACTICE MODE.
Arrow  You can start the first season at Week 1, instead of going through the pre-season.
Arrow  Dynamic Drive Goals: Each new drive contains a Drive Goal that can be completed for bonus XP and/or Confidence.  Specific goals are tailored based on events in the current game to give players a unique challenge each and every game.  Dynamic Drive Goals truly influence the way you play. The more goals you complete, the faster your players improve.
Arrow  Confidence was rebalanced. You can see XP and Confidence changes after every play. More Game Prep time to boost your low confidence players.
Arrow  New scenario based goals can trigger. e.g. "Breakout RB" for playing a rookie RB. Weekly goals can be team or individual based. Goals will fill the loading screen before the game instead of pandering for people to play MUT.
Arrow  Streamlined menu system. Less graphically intensive, I would hope makes it much smoother to move through.
Arrow  New Drag and Drop Depth Chart instead of having to jump back and forth to see who you put where.
Arrow  New Player Card is actually useful, letting you perform any actions possible with that player. e.g. Trade Block, Spend XP, Confidence, all important ratings.
Exclamation  NEW SCOUTING / NEW DRAFT
>>  Coaches and Owners will see a “Thing to Do” item in Week 3 that instructs how to Scout. The basic concept is that you’ll spend Scouting Points on a player, learn more about their abilities, and decide whether you want to select them in the upcoming NFL Draft.
>>  Scouting Points unlock a player’s top three attributes, with the third unlock providing their true draft value. This true draft value will help teams find “Diamonds” and “Overvalued” players in the draft class.
>>  Will you take a projected fifth-round pick with second-round skills in round two, or wait until later hoping that others don’t realize his potential? These are the types of decisions that come to life with the new true talent rating.
>>  WE GET COMBINE STATS
>>  Immediate Draft feedback
Arrow Owner Mode and Finances
>> Small-market teams in older stadiums now have more money to spend into the offseason every year.
Arrow Commissioners can now "sim-a-win" to force particular CPU teams to win/lose, or punish rule-breakers.
Madden Ultimate Team:
Just Marketing Speak. No new features announced yet. But will of course be EA's focus going forward.
Skills Trainer:
With 60+ tutorials and drills, Skills Trainer focuses on teaching the strategy behind different passing and run concepts, as well as how to play Madden for new users to the series. Fan favorite Gauntlet mode returns with all-new Boss Battles, Extra Life challenges and opportunities to jump or fall levels in a single play.

With MUT, you either love it, or you hate it. EA's cash cow is hell-bent on getting kids to gamble their money away hoping to pull an elite card.  This year, they're refining the mode further, while adding more offline options to entice you further to hopefully play more, and spend more.

Improvements and additions:
Solo Challenges now offer a continue option to let you pick up where you left off without having to dig through menus.
You can Quicksell up to 100 cards at once to open up your binder.
New mid-season objectives will pop up instead of just a tutorial at the start of MUT.
Changing times, stadiums, and weather in games.
Madden Moments type scenarios for MUT.
The new Draft Champions mode will give MUT rewards.

With our current vets signed up, Week 1's Game of the Week is shaping up to be one of two options...
I'll begin posting recruiting threads shortly.

Plusch vs mission or Posky vs Ken

Damn, I was thinking Jets too. Put me down for Dolphins as of today. Not a hard commitment but like a Deandre Jordan type commit
After looking over  ratings and what not. The jets don't interest me too much. I leaning towards finally choosing my hometown team (colts...I'm guilty of going to watch training camps and got excited) or I may stick to panthers. Colts for now since it's harder to fill AFC .

Nothing too special in the CFM portion of EA's stream.

There was one key nugget they dropped. If you don't use your scouting points in a given week, you only take half of them to the following week. You can't pool all your scouting points to burn them between the Super Bowl and Draft.

Combine type ratings, (Speed, Acceleration, Strength, etc) won't be available during the season. Expect to first see them closer to the Super Bowl. So you'll have to scout RBs in advance, not knowing how quick the back is until later in the season.

From the Madden Stream:
> No Formation Subs still (fuck!)
> No WR/DB Matchup to pair up your stud CB on their stud WR like on PS2 era. They claim they're trying, and that it ruins their defensive alignment system.
> No hot routes allowed on screen passes. Prevents the cheese plays.
> QBs are much more likely to get hurt if they don't slide when scrambling.
> Repeatedly spamming Aggressive Catch may result in more WR injuries.
> RBs are sliding off OLine on runs instead of getting stuck.
> Slants are no longer OP. Zone defenders will chuck the WR disrupting his route.
> Penalties appear to be more natural.
> Devs hate fumbles. They can't make players react to fumbles naturally. Good on them for being forthcoming.

Does anyone know if you can play online games versus a friend with custom rosters in Madden 15 or if that capability will be available for Madden 16?

The roster guys at Ops Sports created a roster file in which they replicated every teams roster from 1989 and another from 1995 (correct rosters and adjusted ratings).  I'm sure they will do something similar for Madden 16 albeit different year I suppose.  I've had a lot of fun playing exhibition games with these rosters and thought this would be fun for Play Now type games versus friends.

Is that possible?

Online games would not be possible outside of doing an online franchise. However, with the PS4's Share Play feature, you use your console to play a "local" head to head game versus a friend, and they wouldn't even need to own Madden, just a PS4 console to play head to head with you.

New Tuning Update released.
This tuning focuses on risk/reward of WRs and DBs going up for the ball to lessen the easy catches WR were making. DBs are to be much more reactive in general.

Rex Dickson tweeted out, and the AALoA twitter feed then retweeted it in the sidebar, but the patch is expected "very soon."

Abundantlife777 looks to be diving head first into AALoA, creating a separate twitter account for his Bills team. You can follow him at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I thought toward the end of Madden 15, we decided to keep the league smaller?

That was my intent heading into Madden 15.  It also seemed people resented having to play the CPU late in the year.

With Madden 16 feeling as balanced as it is, and with twitch streaming working out as well as it did, it should be easier to maintain a quality league with more people.

The latest Madden patch fixed/balanced quite a few things! Details thanks to PastaPadre.com.

GAMEPLAY

Addressed issue where if a team called a time out on the safety punt, they would then be able to kick a regular kickoff
Addressed issue where sometimes a defender would have a poor pursuit angle toward the ball carrier if the ball carrier was breaking a tackle during a catch
♦Addressed issue where sometimes defensive linemen would freeze for the remainder of the play after being knocked to the ground
♦Addressed issue where the defense would not adjust alignment if the CPU controlled offensive team enacted a concept audible
Updated Individual Coverage adjustments to not only affect the pre-snap shading but also the post play leverage technique
Addressed issue where adjusting the ZONE shading would have an effect on the defenders drop location instead of just the leverage technique
♦Addressed issue where cancelling a PA Fake would allow for a 1-step drop on certain plays
♦Addressed issue where the game clock would be restarted of a declined penalty after an incomplete pass
♦Addressed issue where safeties in Cover 4 Deep assignments were reacting to run too quickly


CONNECTED FRANCHISE

Addressed issue where defensive holding slider would reset when exiting the screen
Addressed issue where accelerated clock would not work in H2H CFM games
♦Addressed issue where visual feedback settings were pulling from the user’s profile instead of league settings
♦Addressed issue where some settings would carry back to the FE after playing a CFM game
♦Addressed issue where the CPU would retain an empty roster spot when simming to the regular season when there is a player on Injured Reserve (note: changes aren’t reflected until after your current season is finished)
♦Addressed issue where the user could not sort player while in the Fantasy draft board
Removed Kick Return as a scoutable trait (note: changes won’t be reflected until after your current season is finished)
♦CFM Trade tuning
♦Addressed issue in CFM H2H where uniforms would change back to default home/away even after changing them in the team select screen
♦Addressed a rare issue that caused some Franchise files to be corrupted, preventing players from accessing their CFM (note: this won’t repair already corrupted files, and only prevents future occurrences)


MADDEN ULTIMATE TEAM

MUT Play a Friend quarter length boosted to four minutes from two minutes
♦In MUT H2H Seasons and Draft Champions H2H Draft, terminating the game during the load screen will give the quitter a loss and the opponent a win. In MUT, Contracts will still be removed.


OTHER

Play Now games were using regular season overtime rules rather than playoff overtime rules (removed possibility for ties)
Addressed issue in online games where the defensive timer would run out during a pause causing the game to auto pick the defensive play
♦Addressed over 100 general bug and stability issues
