Madden 12 Franchise Details

madden 12 franchise












The first big news about madden 12 franchise mode is that there will be pre-season cuts.  You will enter the pre-season with 75 players and have to cut down your nfl roster to 54 players before the regular season starts.  This is a feature that has been requested for years.  Gamers will be happy about the addition to madden 12, but it will be overlooked soon enough.  Here are a few other details about the madden nfl 12 franchise mode.

•Dynamic Player Performance: Player ratings fluctuate based on their performance.

•Player Roles: More than 20 roles affect player and team stats over the course of the season.

•Free Agents: You get the opportunity to make quick bids against other team’s general managers. This will surely speed up the free-agent process.

•New Scouting System: The new madden scouting system shows ratings tied to different events like the college season, combine, pro day, individuals, etc.

•Draft Class Improvements: Robust set of draftees built for 30 seasons of franchise. Teams draft based on their real tendencies.

•Coaches Actually Matter: Coaches will now have a small impact on how their players perform on the field based on their unique coaching style.

•Smarter GM’s: General Managers finally make good decisions. Better re-sign and cut logic. They will make trades and sign free agents who fit their needs, with player roles factored in.

•Team Switch: In any offseason, change control of which teams you run in Franchise mode.

•Other Changes: Many other small tuning and additions are coming including retirement logic, a more accurate salary system, fixes to the injured reserve system, better simulation stats, and more.

  1. Anyone else not able to scout players in Franchise Mode in the early release version of Madden 12?

    1. I went online and played a few head-to-head games and got some coins….now I can use the scouting option in franchine mode.

  2. I can’t scout players in franchise mode or am I doing something wrong? I can’t adust the clock roll off time in franchise mode either

    1. I don't believe there is a clock roll off in this version. The Scouting feature is a little trickier this season, you can't scout at all in Preseason and then you get to select the # of scouts you're allowed in week 1 and then not again until later in the season. If you don't select people to scout, the CPU does it for you and therefore you can't scout until later in the season anyway.

      I personally haven't noticed any problems with scouting, I don't know if what I've told you helps at all.

  3. Cant scout players or turn of the play clock acceleration. What a letdown. I was so pumped up to play the realistic franchise mode. Madden let me down AGAIN! Fix this BS right friggin now!

  4. you can only scout every 4 weeks in the season, then after the season

    i wish they fix the acceleracted clock, that's a huge mess up

  5. the accelerated playclock is b.s. there is no time to call audibles once you try to read the D.; wtf

  6. When I first got madded 12 I was extremely disappointed that you could not turn off the accel clock. However, after changing my settings so the accel clock runs down to 20 seconds this gives me the opportunity to read the D and call an audible if necessary. Also, gameplay is enhanced because I now play 8 minute quarters.

    The absolute worst thing from a game play point of view is that I cannot customise the difficulty level……… why EA? Why?

  7. as coach in madden 2012 can you only call the plays and not have to play the player

  8. You change the difficulty level from the main menu settings. It will reflect in your franchise.
