The late-September title update for Madden 23 was just released but unfortunately it addresses none of the big concerns from the community.
The title update notes that EA announced today were very thin, stating that this patch only includes:
- Stability improvements
- Addressed a rare player model issue
However, EA also stated that, “they are aware of several issues that players have reported within franchise mode” and they are working to resolve them.
The next update will be mid-October so Madden gamers still have another 2-3 weeks without any of their main concerns being addressed.
The previous Madden 23 title update came out all the way back on September 8th so by mid-October it will be 5 to 6 weeks of the biggest issues in the game going completely unaddressed. That is assuming there are no delays.
Some of the big community issues reported in Franchise mode include (but aren’t limited to):
- Regular season randomly going back to pre-season
- Cutting/Signing players not saving
- Stats for games disappearing
- When a user concedes a game while tied, it records the outcome as a tie
- Salary Cap reset not resetting
- Various other issues causing franchise mode to break and become unusable
Meanwhile the Ultimate Team community is facing it’s own problems with some of their biggest issues being:
- Very poor pack odds
- Users not receiving coins after winning the Super Bowl
- Poor rewards for “no money spent” players
- XP/Card/Coin rewards not showing up
On the gameplay front, the 2 biggest things we are hearing that need to be addressed are:
- Offensive line targeting is very poor
- Man coverage needs tuning
Hopefully, many of these issues will be addressed in the mid-October title update but only time will tell on that.
