The Soapbox: NCAA Football 13 Wishlist
I know the year is almost over, and while we got a mega head start on the Madden wish list, we nearly forgot to talk about one of the best college football games to ever be released. NCAA Football 12 was pretty solid, so its going to be kinda hard to suggest things to add or fix for NCAA Football 13 but we’ll try anyways!
The Ability To Change Positions In Road To Glory - I’m sure in college football that a player finds out he’s better suited for another position than he originally started playing. They probably go up to their coach and ask to be changed to another position or the coach tests them out at another position. This should be in the game because it hit me that my Defensive Tackle would be better off as a Defensive End. We can already select two position to play while playing in high school, why not add the ability within our 4 years in road to glory to change to another position.
The Ability To Choose Between Becoming A Coach Or Exporting To Madden 13 - An option that was taken out of the game after 2009 and never put back in the game. It should be put back in, after a player finishes 4 years of college, maybe he doesn’t want to immediately go to the NFL. Maybe he wants to coach a college team and see the work put in from the other side of the sideline.
Play and Formation Creation in Custom Playbooks - Madden and NCAA Football both reintroduced custom playbooks to their respective franchises. Lets bring back another feature that used to come with the custom playbooks, formation and play creation. I miss being able to create a play that I know would defeat defenses 98% of the time or create a formation that blocks the run perfectly. I miss these days…bring them back!
The Ability to Use Custom Playbooks Online - I like the fact I can use my playbook offline, but I would like to test it against someone who might constantly adapts to the situation in front of them. Giving us the ability to use our custom playbooks against each other would be great, you can give it an option online like Team Builder has an online option just for people to play each other Team Builder teams.
The Ability to persuade your Coach To Challenge A Play - Sometimes in Road to Glory the A.I. doesn’t challenge that important play where a fumble happens after your player is clearly down. For moments like that we should have the ability to persuade the coach to challenge the play. It can be a mini game or treated like a regular challenge.
Export NCAA Coach to Madden 13 - With the coaching carousel and the ability to retire during dynasty mode, we should also have the option to take our coach pro. It happens, look at Pete Carroll, he’s coaching the Seahawks now. We should have the ability to bring our awesome coaches to Madden and even have some mention on commentary of their college career.
Export Road To Glory Player After Junior Year - I never understood why the option was taken out, but I should be able to leave college for the draft after completing my junior year.
Team Builder: Create A Arena - Team Builder is already a fantastic mode, but what would make it even better? Being able to make your own college football stadium for your team. Lets us do what we’re kinda able to do while creating a team on Madden but with more customization.
-Fixes and Improvements-
Improve Offensive Line A.I. - Anything below the All-American difficulty has GREAT blocking, after that is a different story. I’ve seen my offensive line collapse more times than it should, it was like playing Madden on All Madden. If a team has a good blocking scheme, it should show.
These are some of my suggestions of what I would like to see in NCAA Football 13, what would you guys like to see? Leave a Comment here or on Facebook!
