They took a class at EA's business 101.
Franchise has been untouched in 3 years. When they finally do give us something, it's this copy and paste feature from DD. They didn't expand on it or make it fit the mode.
And now RTTS gets a bunch of lipstick. The [censored] with bring "instant gains" to the forefront is them saying, hey we did nothing new. But we want to make it look like we did. It takes what, 5-10 mins to finish one game in RTTS. You seriously telling me players can't wait to see their gains? Nobody asked for this and it just makes the mode more arcade like.
And the personality thing is dumb. A person should have ONE personality, not 4. And while the on field relationships are a nice touch.. this is not or should not be a featured feature. It's glorified team chemistry.
They could have changed the Bowman scout day. This is something we've been doing in RTTS since I can remember. It's old, boring and outdated. It's not even a real event. The draft needs serious work. Our "agent" is pointless. Social media is pointless, the who style of RTTS is extremely dumb. If they went full blown with it, and this was a thing looking back on your career or something. Sure it could be fun. But it's completely random and its been the same thing for 3 years. Instead of possible winning gear pack with boss battles... why not allow our agent to find us a deal with a certain brands. And as we promote those brands on and off the field, they reward us with new and better gear? That is so much more realistic. Interviews and social media interaction could factor into our personality. Are we loved by fans? Hated? These things could factor into our trade value, how well our jersey's sale. Which effects contracts. Speaking of contracts. Why not reward us with stubbs based on how much we make? Look at 2k as a perfect example of this. Yes their VC can be thrown in your fact and almost feel forced. But at least they try to add new things and mix it up every year.
But hey!! We get 30 new legends and even a new mode with DD. Hell, get weekly and monthly updates also!! I love grinding on challenges to earn cards, then play people who spend really money to get cards that are just as good if not better. What makes it even more fun is these people sometimes have way more time to invest in the game and destroy me. Yeah it's a blast!!
