Madden NFL 20 - Preliminary Patch Notes 1.15

You now see some of the published information, it is not the Final Patch Notes 1.15. As soon as the salary cap update is live, we will deliver the patch notes to you.

 

Ability & X-Factor Cap Updates

  • One of the biggest change’s users will notice in this salary cap update is the revamped salary cost for many of our Superstar & X-Factor abilities.  The goal here was to lower the cap of some of the more under used abilities.  As for increasing the cap of abilities we did our best to avoid that with a few exceptions which are listed below. 
  • Some notable cap changes for abilities we decreased cap on are:
    • Secure Tackler - goes from 12 cap to 6 cap
    • Unfakeable  - goes from 12 cap to 6 cap
    • Tackle Supreme - goes from 20 cap to 11 cap
    • Pick Artist - goes from 10 cap to 8 cap
    • Conductor - goes from 25 cap to 18 cap
    • Hot Route Master - goes from 60 cap to 55 cap
    • TE Apprentice - goes form 30 cap to 25 cap
    • Outside Apprentice - goes from 35 cap to 20 cap
    • Many more! - The total list of ability cap changes can be downloaded here.

 

In an attempt to avoid increasing the cost of abilities there were only 3 that had their cap increased.  These 3 abilities are:

  • Homer - goes from 5 cap to 10 cap (This is due to the decrease in cap to X Factor abilities)
  • Indoor Baller - goes from 5 cap to 10 cap (This is due to the decrease in cap to X Factor abilities)
  • Threat Detector - (This is due to the effectiveness of this ability in MCS play)

 

Preliminary Salary Cap Update Schedule

In an attempt to be more transparent with the community we wanted to share our current schedule for Salary Cap updates going forward.  When looking at this schedule it is important to keep in mind that these dates are subject to change at any time.  We will do our best to uphold this schedule but like we saw with Hurricane Dorian there can always be unforeseen events that require us to pivot and adjust. 

  • Update 1 = September 16th moved to September 23rd due to Hurricane issues 
    • Milestone = Occurs around the Club ladder halfway point
  • Update 2 = October 31st 
    • Milestone = Occurs right after Clubs Online Elimination
      • Note: The Arizona (10/31), Houston (11/2), and Philly (11/2) Club events may have to be played on the old SC values at their live events since players may have little to no time to react to this update
  • Update 3 = December 4th
    • Milestone = Final update before club finals
      • AFC/NFC South (12/5 – 12/6) clubs may have to be played on the old SC values at their live events since players may have little to no time to react to this update
  • Update 4 = January 28, 2020
    • Milestone = Occurs day the LCQ ladder starts
  • Update 5 = February 28, 2020
    • Milestone = Occurs halfway through LCQ ladder
