Madden Share Allows The Community to Drive Creativity
There always has been a long standing idea that the community can make better rosters than EA’s Rating Czar Donny Moore and now with the new Madden NFL 25 Madden Share feature, the community can. Monday EA released a blog and a video about the new Madden Share feature and the ability to create rosters, playbooks, and sliders to share with the community.
Here is an excerpt of that article that can be found here:
SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE
Madden Share provides a one-stop shop to swap playbooks, rosters, gameplay sliders and more. Simply create your file and upload it to Madden Share directly from the game. Do you prefer a more arcade experience? Find some CPU and Player Skill sliders that make the game a bit more freewheeling. Did you create a killer playbook? Upload it and share your genius of X’s and O’s with the world.
One of the coolest things about playbooks in Madden Share is the ability to mix and match plays from a variety of teams.. Want to create the ultimate aerial attack? Mix the Patriots and Broncos’ playbooks, toss in a dose of Packers and sprinkle liberally with dashes of the New Orleans Saints, then serve to the Madden Share community and watch passing games explode. Custom playbooks, rosters and gameplay sliders can all be imported for use within your Connected Franchise.
There’s sure to be a ton of content uploaded onto the Madden Share servers, so it’s important that you’ll be able to access the best files. Players can rate and sort content, so you’ll know exactly what everyone thinks before you make the plunge with a download.
Madden Share will also highlight the newest and best content in a special “featured” area, ensuring you’ll always be up-to-speed on what’s available. The best community sliders, special playbooks direct from the Madden NFL development team, sponsored content and more can all be yours with a simple push of a button.
Madden Tip Sites Using Madden Share
I feel like this feature has the potential to be something really useful to the Madden Community and hopefully it’s not one of those one and done features. I can see Madden Tip sites out there using the Madden Share feature to upload special playbooks with schemes attached via a youtube video.
Throwback Teams Back?
I’m really excited to see throwback teams make a comeback. I know someone out in the community is going to create an All 32 Team roster that features all the best players for each team. What’s great about that is that you’ll be able to start a Connected Franchise with any roster that the community uploads. I can also seeing someone creating for their franchise a special roster that has team specific customizations. For example I could create a roster that has the 91 Skins, 85 Bears, and 91 Vikings. The possibilities are unlimited and I’m excited for the Community to get busy.
Madden Share Questions
I do have some questions, that I haven’t figured out yet that I will see if I can figure out:
- Is there a way to password protect your file?
- Are there even more things you can upload?
- Is there a way to search not only by username but by description?
- Is there a way to protect your work from being downloaded and then uploaded as their own?
These are all questions I have. I also wonder if there is going to be a website associated with Madden Share because there are some things that can be expanded on.
