Now, fast forward to 2021 and Madden nfl 22 coins EA is more at ease with the Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles, allowing them bring more exciting improvements to Madden 22. One of them is homefield advantage, a option that was left unexplored in past years. Madden is able to reproduce the look and feel of stadiums like Seattle's Lumen Field. However, it's not translating into actual game play.
It will all change in Madden 22. Away teams that need to play in stadiums such as Lumen Field, which are notoriously difficult, will soon have their playart moving dangerously by keeping some receiver buttons hidden. EA refers to these features as "M-Factors" and they are a unique benefit that each team can avail in accordance with the current momentum of the game. Even the Chargers that are known for having more home fans than their home fans, will get an extra boost to their offensive power should they perform well at home.
If this seems familiar, it may be because NCAA Football 14 had a similar feature in 2013. The same wriggling playart would be seen if you headed to Alabama's stadium. Clint Oldenburg, Gameplay producer confirmed these similarities at the EA's conference this week. "It is rooted in NCAA Football, for certain however, it's modernized." We've heard a lot of comments from NCAA Football that the system wasn't clear enough and didn't clearly define when items were unlocked. This is the subject Gameday Momentum focuses on.
Gameday Momentum is a meter that fluctuates based on the nature of the game. Home team players enjoy advantages when they perform well. For example, the Seahawks have three levels of homefield advantage. There's Unstoppable, which is a distortion of playart and 12's, which stop home team players from being knocked out their X-Factor, Superstar abilities, and Nerves. This results in icons for receivers to be hidden. The homefield advantage is different between teams from one to the next. In Denver stamina can be a problem however in Chicago it is the case that kicking meters become a mess (cue visions: Double Doink).
This is a greatly-needed enhancement to Madden NFL and will make home games feel more meaningful. Its biggest danger is that it will begin to appear a bit gimmicky and that the advantages conferred by the advantage of homefield could result in more games getting out of control quickly (just like real-life situations but I'll leave it there). However the M-Factors system is built upon the proven X-Factor system. Similar balance issues arose when X-Factors were introduced in Madden 20 but Madden has largely been able to keep them in control.
Madden is actually packed with pretty interesting features. Its main issue has always been its polish, something that is definitely aggravated by the pandemic. Overall, I am impressed with the new style of buy mut coins madden 22 game. I also think homefield advantage is an excellent option that's long overdue.
