When details first came out about the new installment of Madden NFL 13, the key selling point was the brand new game mode replacing Franchise mode called Connected Careers.

While the majority of fans were pumped and have been fully satisfied since the game's release, one batch of unhappy campers were not pleased with the new mode. Those fans are the ones who were very upset to find that this year's Madden will not feature a fantasy draft in the Connected Careers mode.

Online forums exploded with fans ranting about how they were not going to buy the game if it did not have a fantasy draft.Well, for those fans, it's time to go find yourself a Madden retailer.

Madden's official Twitter page tweeted this earlier today:
