Whoever moved this post
Are you trying to annoy me?
Why did you move my post here?
Now it's marked as solved and you have no obligation of helping me & the community!!
That's dirty play EA

Why 'No changes will be made Madden 17 to specifically address this' ?
After you told us before that better players would be introduced to this mode...

@charlijaen

 

I moved your post as this is the main thread for the issue.

 

I meant "no changes will be made"  in the sense that this is not a bug and therefore will not be 'fixed'.

 

Sorry if you thought I was trying to annoy you as that is most certainly not the case.

@EA_Barry
The algorythm that determines which players you are offered to pick in every draft round has not been programmed properly, which is a big mistake.
A programming mistake is called bug, so go now and fix it.

Seems like a total cop out to me. 

Indeed, you did say more cards would become available so that wasn't true either.

Bit of a jokeshop really isn't it?

Yeah, actually @EA_Barry lied to us when he said some time ago that more cards would be added.

I also said that this would happen, and I was right, because EA has always this "style" when it comes to customer support.

You previously promised that content would be added to the draft to make it possible, and now you say that EA Tiburon has 'no plans to fix this'
Shame ..

Unfortunately the information I was provided with at the time has proven to be inaccurate.

@EA_Barry @EA_Tom I contacted support by chat, Check this out:

 

Thank you for contacting us. Megha will help you soon.
Megha
Thanks for contacting EA Customer Experience, my name is Megha. How may I assist you today?
you
Hi. In Madden NFL 17 for PS3 and xbox 360 there is an achievement/trophy that requires you to draft a team at least 83
overall value and the game doesn't give good players to make it possible
you
In the forums EA_Barry promised they were gonna fix it, but a month later, he said that no plans to address the issue
Megha
Hello
Megha
I apologize for the inconvenience caused. I'll do my best to address your concern.
Megha
To make sure that I am working on the correct account, please provide me your email address and FirstLast
name
you have associated with your EA account
you
*********************
you
*******************
Megha
Thanks !
Megha
Would you mind if I place your chat on hold for couple of minutes to look into the issue?
you
ok
you
Just tell them to modify the drop rate of Elite players to make it higher, and give two legendary players like on the PS4
version, that way, the trophy is achievable.
you
Remember: Draft champions mode (PS3)
Megha
I am afraid but the game is working as intended
you
What do you mean?
you
It is intended to be broken? Because on the PS3 version I have drafted more than 500 times and my best was 82 three times,
the rest are 80s and 81s
you
No way to get 83
you
but on the PS4 version I got 83 on my fourth attempt, easy peasy. Every round gave me a 85+ player
you
but in PS3 it gives me 77s and 79s on at least 3 rounds
Your chat transcript will be sent to [edit: email address removed] at the end of your chat session.
Megha
The specialist team are checking the same , your patience would be appreciated
you
ok
Megha
Thanks for being so patient.
Megha
Specialist checked the case and they said that you have to post this issue on forums else, you can revert to Bary
that your issue is not resolved.
Megha
So in this case you need to get in touch with him for your issue.
you
But, as I said before, Barry said that they were gonna fix it and a month later he said they'd never fix it
you
First, why did he lie?
Megha
I again apologize for all the inconvenience you have faced, but this is something which we cannot fix from our end
you
so, you can't contact the developers?
you
Then who is supposed to contact them?
Megha
No we cannot contact them from our end.
you
Shall I go to the Headquarters of EA Tiburon ?
you
I think they would kick me out of there
Megha
No they will not.
you
Whatever,
you
So, if nobody is interested in fixing this, should I give up on this?
Megha
Let me clear the air from my end is that we cannot add the players from our end.
Megha
It's the servers who packed random players in your account.
Megha
Or in pack*
you
Not talking about packs
you
Do you even know what the issue is? I'm talking about DRAFT CHAMPIONS game mode
you
Three random players are offered on each round
Megha
Yes I do know about it.
Megha
Yes
Megha
You're right
you
Why on PS4 they are 85+ players on 12 of 14 rounds and on PS3 I rarely get 85+ players
you
?
Megha
It's the game play.
Megha
Game is designed in such a way, that we cannot make changes too.
you
Wrong, in Madden 16 it was impossible at first too, but after some weeks it became possible because better players were
introduced on the rotation of players to drop
you
Actually on Madden 17 PS4 it was impossible at first too. But they changed it as well
Megha
For further clarifications i am transferring this chat to my supervisor
you
ok
Please wait while we get this chat session where it needs to go.
Thank you for contacting us. Supervisor will help you soon.
Supervisor
Thanks for contacting EA Customer Experience, my name is Shubham supervisor available in chat. How may I
assist you today?
you
Hello, supervisor. As I said before, the mode Draft Champions on Madden NFL 17 for PS3 needs some tweaks in order to
increase the drop rate of 85+ players
you
In order to make the trophy 'Winning Draft Day' achievable, because now you can't draft a 83 Overall team
you
The PS4 version was 'fixed' and 12 of 14 of the rounds give players that are all 85*
you
Last year with Madden 16 the situation was similar, but they 'fixed' PS3 AND PS4 versions
Supervisor
I apologize but this is something which cannot be fixed from our end
Supervisor
In this case you need to post your issue on forums.
you
EA_Barry promised a fix, and a month later, he said there are no plans to address this
you
so; he lied to us
Supervisor
To be honest we do not have any way to get in touch with EA_Bary
Supervisor
So in this case I would suggest you to reply on that back and wait for the reply.
you
OK, but there has to be a way to contact the developers, right?
Supervisor
We do not have from my end.
you
So, Is that all? Nothing you can do?
Supervisor
I apologize but no we cannot do anything in this case
Supervisor
Thanks for contacting EA. Is there anything else you need assistance with today?
you
No
Supervisor
Thanks again for contacting EA. In future if you have any further queries please feel free to contact us back.
The chat session has ended. Please contact us again if you need further help.

 

 

 

The support people redirect me to you, because nobody there can contact the devs, so if you guys are the only people able to do it,

Why don't you do it?

@EA_Barry How is it not a "bug" if it is impossible to do?  Ive done HUNDREDS of drafts, ive gotten to 82 like 10 times, the rest are 79-81 teams.  Its ridiculous EA didn't add new cards to the draft.  They are only worried about micro purchases now, since Draft Champions doesn't require those purchases, they could care less about the issue we have with it.  How about next years yall do away with it if yall wont support it???
