What happened to be able to Gift pro packs and other packs to friends? EA should bring that back and also implement some sort of league trading block, where you can trade guys of similar overall with a league mate.
I used to send pro packs to fellow league mates as a contest reward for league fun....now that's gone. Last season we had the league bank...now that's gone. What the heck EA?
Great topic, curious how others feel about about this. Always been a fan of guild banks and we're always open to thoughts from the community on how to improve both individual and league rewards.
I have a lot to touch on here.
We definitely should be able to trade guys of similar overall value with league mates. For example, if I pulled an 87 overall Limited player, Mike Vick who is a spread scheme and I use a smashmouth scheme, then I should be able to trade it with a league mate for the 87 overall Limited Bo Jackson.
Gifting packs was great. I would gift to league mates that were participating regularly to entice them to continue. This really needs to come back
Stamina refill is an issue too. What happened to being able to pay 100 or 200 Madden cash and getting your whole stamina meter filled up? Now you only get 200 stamina and the price is tiered and keeps going up. My meter is 785 stamina and if I want to fill it it costs me 1200 gems (200-200-400-400) or 600 madden cash (100-100-200-200). That's a little steep. 200 stamina is nothing. Some events cost 200 stamina alone. The price should be static. 400 gems or 200 madden cash or 50,000 coins gets you a filled up meter no matter how big your stamina meter is. Award the people who play and use the front office to build their meter. We also used to be able to pay 200 madden cash for the ability for stamina refill 20% quicker for a week or two weeks. That's gone now too.
Why can't you buy stamina with coins as well? I understand that EA wanted to crack down on people buying coins, but now they've gone too far the other way too. Coins are becoming more and more useless. We used to be able to buy packs with coins, but now it's only a stripped down version of the pack. I have 4M coins and the only thing they're really good for is buying a player off the auction house which is clearly broken. I search all of the time for cheap players and see nothing, yet people post guys for 100 coins and they don't sell. Makes no sense.
Can you guys put in tiers (even if they're every 250 or 500 or even 1000 points) that are above hall of fame or even overall ranking awards like in overdrive, so that once you make the hall of fame (which is pretty much Monday night, the day it's released) you have other rewards that can be earned and it entices you to keep playing. At the very least, make the arena season only 1 week long. I finished this week's Arena on Monday night and now have to wait 2 weeks to play it again.
I apologize if this sounds like a rant. I love the game, but fell like EA keeps taking away the things that people love about the game and replacing them with things we don't.
