The lights are on
Would-be GMs, coaches, owners, and superstars have anxiously awaited Madden NFL 15's Connected Careers mode. Now developer EA Tiburon has detailed a host of changes for this year's iteration.
The mode doesn't look to have long-requested features like restricted free agency and practice squads, but there are plenty of additions and improvements for '15.

I really like what I'm seeing from the Game Prep. It's always hard to practice defense as player and this can really help out with that. I'm stoked for this Madden, first one in awhile that I actually feel that way!
I still haven't decide whether I will get this at launch or wait a while.
Why can't they let us personally customize a new stadium like in previous games instead of making us pick from a generic list?
I would also like to see some more realistic pricing for stadium renovations because I feel like $30-$30 million more seats/bathrooms is overkill.
Maybe an option to completely turn off the cash thing in Owner Mode like how you can remove the salary cap, too.
Completely remove that blacklist crap from Connected Franchise because there is no reason I shouldn't be able to play as an owner offline whether I went bankrupt or not. I did one time as the Vikings owner and even 10+ years later it won't let me make another owner for the Vikings because "I have been blacklisted."
Lastly, have players announce their retirement at the beginning of the season instead of the end so we can scout players accordingly. I get tired of spending all of my scouting points on the positions I need to upgrade to be surprised when I see a player as retired unexpectedly to leave a huge gap on my team.
