No NCAA Football 13 Draft Class Import in Madden 13

One of the little pieces of information that is causing uproar within parts of the Madden community is that there will not be a way of importing draft classes from this year’s college football game, NCAA Football 13 to Madden NFL 13.  This mean’s players like Matt Barkley, Montee Ball, and The Honeybadger will not be playable in Madden 13.  Also you will not be able to import and continue the career of your Road to Glory player in Madden 13.

You will instead be forced to play with the cpu generated random rookie draft classes.  It appears that since this is the first year of connected careers mode, there is some sort of incompatibility between the newest game mode and importing players from NCAA Football 13.  Hopefully this feature comes back for Madden 14.

What do you think?  Is this something you feel strongly about or do you not care too much?  Let us know in the comments section below or in our forum.

I would like to know why both games cut ties on importing draft classes. Neither game will sell out at all.

This is something that I am EXTREMELY disappointed in. I not only create myself and my friends, but I also go on recruiting websites such as rivals and print out the current years recruits! I’ve been doing this for years. Going back to when I was in high school from 04-08. I had Barkley, AJ Green, Julio Jones, Montei Teo, tons of others on the old games before they were even out of high school, do a few years of that, then start putting in my friends from the graduating classes of 2004 thru 2009. Bam, (Yes, it does take some time but, I mean, weekends really aren’t a big deal for me.) all of a sudden, you have 8, 9, or 10 years of solid Dynasty on College, then you take them onto Madden. The only gripe I had was, I built Vanderbilt into a power, recruited my friend, he went undefeated, 4 National Titles, 3 Heisman Trophies, I put him onto Madden, hes a 7th round pick. Again, I am extremely disappointed in EA taking this feature out. I hope they can release a patch to tune it up.

Im 37 years old & have bought both games since they were on the Sega Genesis. I only play 2 video games NCAA & MADDEN & the #1 reason was the compatibilty of the games& draft class features. Not only will I not buy the games, I can sell my PS3 now. Pretty sure “EA” stands for Extremely Arrogant

This is EA needs to concede to 2K because they cant deliver anymore the only purpose for purchasing ncaa is to transfer draft classes to madden. Let 2k handle the sports gaming if ea cant handle it they out did ea in bball and i bet they would in football too

Wow I jus don’t understand… I’ve been a drfted class monster… Since Madden 89 I’ve been a Madden Head! I bought NCAA since they started the drafted class into Madden… I spend hrs recruiting, and creating prospects Its sucks winning a BCS or any bowl game for that matter bc the celebrations have always sucked! I feel like I play a long season I want a proper celebration… Other wise, Love both of them bc they “were” compatible… Now I I feel robbed even more bc its thee exact game as the last few yrs for NCAA!!! Except now u make it worst by takin that feature out??? The only reason why some ppl buy them both? Ur Dumb, and if u don’t put it bck I’m sure I’m not the only customer either one of them will lose

I guess I am not buying Madden. One of the things I enjoyed most about Madden and NCAA was the fact you could import players and continue them on into the NFL.

What a joke. I too wasted money on Ncaa 13. They better come up with a patch or something otherwise I’m through with EA forever. I am not going to waste more money on madden 13.
