    ? What do you mean? You get the full game $60. Pro packs are for MUT which gives you players that you can use for your MUT team and either keep them or sell them to buy different players.

    and once upon a time you got all that in the game, for 60 dollars.

    and didn't have to "trade" or sell, to other players. you just had them.

    now, according to ea's website, if you want them all, you got to pay 120 dollars.

    maybe not. explain why it needs to cost you 60 + 35 dollars to have your dream team.

    So that EA can make another $650 million a year out of sports games that people already paid for by convincing them to play a mobile-style pay to win card game to get that team and keep it competitive online.

    yea. really at this point, i am wondering if they are just taking the same game from the previous years, and just slapping a new title on it to be honest.

    I only buy a Madden game like once every five years now ever since 2010. I might get this one this year just because I'm on a big football kick right now. The DLC sounds like BS though. I really miss when it was like Madden '05 (which is still the definitive one in my opinion).

    Don't let people that don't know anything about mut scare you off. I CHOSENTO PAY $35 on my mut team. You can have a good team just by paying zero. You can play Draft champions, franchise mode which is really cool now and normal head to head.

    I decided I don't like it. I don't really play franchise mode or most of the other modes a lot when I get a Madden game though. I just like to play quick games with friends or family.

    i miss a time when instead of paying 35 dollars for things like team members, you unlocked them by playing the game.

    and please do not tell me that i know nothing about this. because you paid 35 dollars for something that SHOULD be in the game for 60 dollars.

    but, EA got greedy.

    you would have gotten your dream team, including in the game, for only 60 dollars, only 10 years ago.

    I can get my dream team for just the cost of the game by playing all the solos though which include packs. But I'm just a impatient person that chose to pay some of the money I've been saving up to speed up that process.

    well, then that makes it way worse.

    because that makes it pay to win.
