Part one among our Madden 20 gear wishlist targeted on helmets, in addition to mouthguards and different gear used for NFL gamers’ heads and torso areas.
At present, part two will give attention to what we need to see obtainable for players’ arms, legs and ft.
Saggy long sleeved undershirts are fairly widespread in the NFL, with many gamers using these as an alternative if the compression type sleeves at present represented in-game proper now.
Padded Shooter Sleeves
Shooter sleeves have been a fantastic addition to the sport a couple of years ago. Nevertheless, various gamers use padded shooter sleeves. A small texture addition on the pre-existing shooter sleeves would do wonders and simply add another practical customization choice.
¼ Sleeve/Shooter combo
The power to mix the prevailing quarter sleeve, and shooter sleeve would create a glance that’s solely seen by a number of QB’s within the league, reminiscent of Mitch Trubisky, Carson Wentz and Patrick Mahomes.
Three-quarter sleeves are merely long sleeves which were pulled up, and there are a couple of gamers who rock this look persistently. Dan Bailey, Brett Maher, Bradley Pinion, Matt Bosher have used this type most of their careers, while Dak Prescott wore his sleeves like this on-and-off through the 2018 season. A slight tweak to the lengthy sleeves would simply achieve this look. Despite getting used primarily by kickers, it looks like one other simple addition.
The present elbow brace used in Madden can also be sometimes utilized in actual life. Nevertheless, gamers who have suffered elbow accidents sometimes use a more stripped down, cage model of the brace. The stabilizers. like the one JJ Watt makes use of, are sometimes seen following elbow dislocations to stabilize the joint. Including this sort of stabilizer to Madden would add some more sensible appears for gamers who’ve suffered these kinds of injuries prior to now.
Medium and Full Turf Tape
Only two phrases are needed on this one. Turf. Tape. Alvin Kamara would be the largest identify that started the revival of a mid-2000’s type. Nevertheless, its explosion all through football at all ranges has been unimaginable. The modifications in turf throughout the years had rendered turf tape out of date for a few decade. Regardless of that, it appears to be making its method back primarily as a trend statement, however can also be still useful towards turf burn. Kamara’s participant model was adjusted to point out his turf tape in a big patch within the fall, nevertheless it was just for his character and it seems to be more “painted on” than the actual thing. This must be high on the precedence record for Madden 20 gear.
Elbow/Forearm Band Combo
This one is all about maximizing using equipment: a combo of a forearm band, a bicep band, sometimes some sleeves and wrist tape. An addition of a giant bicep band and eligible to be paired with the preexisting forearm band can be a nice touch. It’s not an excessively common look within the NFL, however when guys like Jalen Ramsey, the “Honey Badger” Tyrann Mathieu and Jamal Adams commonly use the combo, it’s a must to put it within the recreation.
A very delicate tweak to wristbands can be good. The current wristbands typically look either too massive or too small. Drew Brees, Blake Bortles, Andy Dalton and lots of others often use a smaller fashion wristband which are a bit nearer to the hand. DeShaun Watson and Jameis Winston use a larger type wristband that’s twice the dimensions of the smaller band. Updating the current wristband to characterize the smaller, 3-inch fashion band can be a nice contact whereas updating the present “double” model to characterize a 6-inch band looks like an inexpensive answer.
Not an excellent noticeable choice, but small bracelets can be a pleasant contact. The brief wrist tape choice could possibly be good substitute, but chopping it down even additional might give the look of a bracelet, which shouldn’t create a ton of labor for the group.
Probably the most requested things within the recreation is tattoos, as just a few players have their real-life tattoos within the recreation, similar to Mike Evans of the Buccaneers. A purpose for that is tattoo ownership points, as conflicts over who owns the likeness of them has been fought over between online game developers and the tattoo artists themselves. NBA 2K put participant tattoo’s within the recreation and have been promptly sued for it. Due to this, it’s extra on the person player themselves to get all the vital releases to get their tattoo’s within the recreation. So if your favorite participant doesn’t have his tattoos in the recreation, hit him up on Twitter and let him know to get with EA and get them in the recreation!
Thin Finger Tape
A small update to the current finer tape choices can be cool. The present tape seems a bit too cumbersome and wraps around the finger a bit an excessive amount of. An update to a thinner tape along the digits would make it slightly much less noticeable, but much more lifelike.
Sometimes for gamers in search of more flexibility, pants have been getting greater. Fairly than reaching past the player’s knee, they now repeatedly sit above the knee. Most of the time, the bare knee is exposed whereas some gamers use full compression pants to cover the knee. NFL guidelines state that “…pants must be worn over the entire knee area…”, so it seems extraordinarily unlikely that this shall be allowed within the recreation but it will be cool to at the very least see it in apply mode.
Knee braces are a bit of kit you not often discover, however are quite common within the NFL. Many offensive lineman use them, as do numerous QB’s who use them on their plant legs to protect themselves from falling defenders. Braces are required to be coated by the player’s sock, so including some texture around the knee looks like a protected choice.
Sock Peak Stripes
A commonly requested merchandise in the Madden collection are sock heights for teams like the Bears, Payments, Chargers, Chiefs, Jaguars, Patriots and Redskins. Teams with regular socks are given a High, Commonplace, Low or Tucked choice, while groups with striped socks are stuck at a medium, or normal, peak. Tyreek Hill wears his striped socks very high, whereas Patrick Mahomes uses his very low.
A delicate texture change for the socks can be an amazing addition. Giving a wrinkled search for the socks would add a nice touch of realism. OBJ is probably going the most important identify to make use of his socks like this, but the look has quietly spread throughout the league. It could possibly be somewhat troublesome to notice in-game, however it never hurts to include the small things.
Customized Thigh Pads
Thigh pads are nonetheless required on the NFL degree, and Madden presently has 2 options obtainable: a regular pad that has ridges, a look that has been round for years, and a Nike pad which is a bit greater with a delicate honeycomb sample. Customized pads with designs reduce into them have turn into fairly widespread. Some gamers merely use their quantity, whereas others use staff logos. This feature might be a lengthy challenge for the workforce, however can be an enormous perk when customizing players.
Improved Design and Shade for Spats
The present spat options in Madden are just approach off. The low spats look too small and don’t reach above the ankle, whereas the upper options just look large, reaching means too far up the leg. Spats are often used to guard the participant’s ankles and hold rubber turf pellets out of the player’s cleats. They need to cowl the again half of the cleat and carry a couple of inches onto the player’s ankle, and are often very tight alongside the ankle. Most trendy teams use white tape, whereas the Texans often use a staff shade. Utterly revamping the prevailing spats and including quite a lot of colour options can be very useful.
Air Jordan 11 Mid
Jordan 11 low’s have been patched into Madden 19 after the video games launch, they usually look great, but a mid variant can be nice. The lows are sometimes seen on receivers and other talent positions, but the 11 mid seems to truly be the more in style choice. Jumpman athletes like Bobby Wagner, Tyrann Mathieu and Michael Thomas have sometimes worn mids since being signed to the Jordan Brand.
Air Jordan 1 Cleats
The Jordan 1 cleats weren’t seen on the football subject till late in the 2018 season, but turned quite fashionable, particularly all through the playoffs. A baseball cleat choice has been seen in MLB for a bit now, however with the cleat lastly making it to the NFL, it’s protected to assume it’ll be getting some critical consideration by players and the Madden group.
Soccer-Type Kicker Cleats
Soccer/kicker cleats didn’t get any attention when the games shifted to the next-gen consoles. Understandably, the kickers haven’t gotten a ton of attention from the gear group, nevertheless it looks like a superb time to finally add some soccer cleats for these guys. A scan of 1 cleat from Nike, Beneath Armour and Adidas can be cool to see.
Apply uniforms can be a big challenge, however one that undoubtedly needs to be executed. Follow isn’t a huge part of the Madden collection, however using full recreation uniforms throughout apply and CFM’s weekly coaching is just foolish. A generic pair of pants and a looser becoming, strong coloured jersey can be required. Removing eye black would even be a good suggestion to take it to the subsequent degree.
Damage-Based mostly Equipment Additions (Arm tape, IV Remedy, and so on.)
All athletes are required to play whereas harm. In-game additions of kit would add some realism. Throughout games gamers can flip an ankle (requiring a spat), minimize an arm, receive an IV(often coated with a bandage and/or tape), or harm a finger/hand/wrist(requiring tape, or a glove).
Walter Payton Man of the Yr Emblem
Every year, all 32 teams nominate 1 player from their roster for the Walter Payton Man of the Yr Award. These designated gamers then receive a WPMYA helmet sticker for the remainder of the yr with a nomination, and a jersey patch/helmet sticker for the rest of their career after profitable.
Updated Captain Patches
Captain patches have been launched to the NFL in 2007, and their position was expanded within the Madden collection in M19. This was an incredible addition to CFM, nevertheless the current patches look far too small. A more practical patch design just like the jersey numbers have and an elevated measurement would make the captain patches better.
