Angry gamers trend #FixMaddenFranchise as EA Sports charges full price for Madden NFL 21 with patch updates
'EA does nothing to fix or improve franchise because it doesn’t make them money off of microtransactions. Just shows how little they care about the fans #FixMaddenFranchise,' wrote on Twitter user
EA Sports is being severely criticized after releasing the trailer for ‘Madden NFL 21’, which seems to have left the franchise fans highly disappointed by only showcasing patch updates while charging the customers with the full price. Agitated gamers and notable personalities from the sports industry took to Twitter to trend #FixMaddenFranchise, demanding EA Sports to fix its latest mishap. Meanwhile, the majority of them have cited on the social media platform that EA Sports has turned its back on the game’s fans by offering nothing new in its Gridiron Notes focusing on the Face of the Franchise and Classic Franchise in Madden NFL 21.
The trends gained further momentum when notable sports journalists and commentators personally called out EA Sports for letting its customers down with Madden NFL 21’s latest updates. Sports and gaming journalist Brian Mazique tweeted, “I'm often very forgiving of game devs and even publishers. I think people are often too hard on 2K, Madden, and MLB The Show....however... this Madden franchise mode is just a slap in the face...yes even during a pandemic. You know why? you're still collecting full price.”
Meanwhile, franchise YouTuber Ryan Moody, who is known for his videos on NFL, also took to Twitter to express his opinion about Madden NFL 21’s new features. He wrote, “In honor of the feelings hurt over at EA, here's the quality programming that got us here. With #FixMaddenFranchise trending, people that dont even know this game are now forced to see its broken. Holding my chest but my leg is hurt, dont worry I'm only out 2 plays.”
One tweet by SOFTDRINKTV, the YouTube channel famous for its sport discussion videos, read, "Bruh wtf are the franchise YouTubers supposed to do this year? What's the difference between their Madden 20 rebuilds with updated rosters and a Madden 21 rebuild? I feel pretty bad for them. If you see them trying to branch out more, support them.”
A large number of Madden fans called out EA Sports for being inconsiderate and only thinking of profits. “EA does nothing to fix or improve franchise because it doesn’t make them money off of microtransactions. Just shows how little they care about the fans #FixMaddenFranchise” wrote one Twitter user.
