Madden 21 Patch Aims to Make AI Teams More Mindful Drafting Quarterbacks

Published

on

Madden 21

A new patch rolling out for Madden 21 is aiming to help AI teams make more logical choices in drafting their next potential franchise quarterback.

EA Tiburon laid out the details during a post issued on their official blog on Wednesday, although it isn’t clear when the patch is scheduled to arrive.

“Like real life, there can still be times where a team decides a player is just too good to pass up, depending on the situation,” the post reads.

“When teams draft a first-round quarterback in real life, it’s a sign of commitment from a team to a player saying, “we think you can be, or now are, the face of our organization.”

As a part of our next update, we have added new logic checks that CPU teams will use to guide whether they should even be interested in drafting a QB when they’re on the clock in Round 1. Now, teams will evaluate their roster and previous draft picks of the last two years to keep teams from replacing players too soon.

DEV NOTE: This feature came directly from community feedback around situations where rookie QBs ultimately got replaced after their first season due to their OVR being lower than an incoming prospect. Embracing the authenticity of teambuilding and player development, teams now consider their incumbent starters as a piece of their future to give runway for those players to reach their full potential. Now, teams will consider previous investments to influence their future selections.

When a CPU team is on the clock, they will now deprioritize drafting a first round QB if:

  • Their current starting QB was a 1st round pick in the last two Drafts
  • Their current starting QB was a 2nd/3rd round pick in the last two Drafts
    • And has a Normal Dev and 72+ OVR
    • And has Star or higher Dev trait
  • Their current starting QB is a 94+ OVR
  • Their current starting QB is 87+ OVR and 32+ years old
  • Their current starting QB is 74+ OVR and < 29 years old
  • Their current backup QB is a Star or higher Dev Trait and < 28 years old

Lastly, if a team’s current starting QB is over 35, the team will consider drafting a replacement.”
