Player Ratings In Madden 20 To Have A Much Bigger Spread

The ratings system in Madden 20 is receiving a full overhaul! The difference between how an 89 overall player and a 90 overall player is going to be much more pronounced than ever before.

EA Sports is claiming that in Madden 20, you will see some starters with overall ratings in the 50s.

For reference, in previous years it was incredibly hard to find any player, even third stringers or practice squad members, that had ratings below 60 overall.

This news likely means that there will be a lot fewer NFL players that are rated in the 90s. That kind of ranking will now be reserved for the truly elite players.

So when you fire up Madden 20 for the first time on August 2nd, don’t overreact. Just because a player who used to be a 75 overall is now a 55 overall doesn’t mean that he got significantly worse in the offseason. It just means that EA Sports has adjusted the ratings scale so that everyone isn’t bunched up between 70-99.

What do you think about the new Madden 20 player ratings scale? Let us know in the comments below.

That sh** is stupid. Their should be exactly what they are. For instance lets say Travis Kelsey is a 92 overall, Madden he shouldn’t be a 85 overall. The overall has a lot to do with their performance.

I love it. Now In two years a franchise mode team won’t have 8 99 overall players . It’ll be more realistic and rookies will need significant time to develop

I love this to. Part of the complaining and rightfully so in years past is, for example, Drew Brees 90 overall 96 throw under pressure and 92 short pass accuracy but throws 2 balls behind on a slant and one gets picked by a mlb with a 72 overall. Does that make sense? No and people would be upset and rightfully so. If you have that big of a discrepancy in ratings that should not happen.

There have been to many 90’s players that dont play to the ratings. It appeared to be more of a money making thing all these solo challenges flooding 90’s overall players who dont play to the rating. To many 92 overall defensive ends get stymied by a 76 overall tackle.

I think even though player ratings are a lot lower we may not really notice this unless you are up against a 90 plus guy.

As long as the gameplay is realistic, and unbiased, some teams, (Cowboys) are pumped up and treated differently in ratings and gameplay. Gameplay is most important.

Please do what’s right, not what’s Fair is easy. Make game play REALISTIC LIKE NFL.QB should fumble more.Players should react faster & better. When QB start rolling outside LE,RE,LB, should could off block. Offense lineman,TE,RB,WR should block the right player. Ref should be on the field making calls,we should be able to throw red flag, Penalty should be call when players hit players late R out of bounds. Players shouldn’t play in Fran if they not playing in real life for whatever reason. That’s how we play our 1ST season REALISTIC LIKE NFL. We had penalty on , Our free agents was our practice squad before u added it.. When you do update u can update roster in Fran. NFL team sign some1 u should put that player on the game.U take Players off.S

Plenty of realistic elements. In the Pro Bowl, everyone shouldn’t be wearing 5he same helmet, thats not how the REAL pro bowl is, each player wears his team helmet, just the A or the N looks so boring and plain, I mean come on. Can we have MORE than 4 different shoes, it gets ugly, soooo many different kicks out there. Visors are needed ,with COLORS, and gloves. If you’re thinking folks don’t want these small little details, well you gotta look deeper. Also, every and all helmet era’s need to be available, it’s just the right thing to do. And please, lets have more details in the FG net, the net has looked dumb for awhile now, so yeah…please. Lastly, GET THE EA SERVER TO RUN SMOOTHER ,for the love of bean pie you guys are killing us with that…. These are the few things I’m looking for, along with MOST football fans have been waiting for. ?

PS: If EA doesn’t do MUCH better this year ,they’re sunk ,and need to look for a better developer.

I think when playing online against another player ALL teams should be almost equal. Still have signature moves and slightly different attributes. I hate when people continue to use the best top 4 teams!!! This is just my opinion.

I think it will be better because in all the madden games I’ve played most people are over 80-90 overall. #THANKYOUMADDEN.
