Hey, it looks like he loves the idea!
Of course, pulling this off is more complicated than scrimmages and crew games on NBA 2K11.
Having superstars compete against each other online in mini-games is an easy way to start.
There can be a mode similar to the current one but with multiple superstars. People can create their superstar and join the same league. They can be arch rivals or decide to join forces down the road by signing with the same team.
Another idea is to have a section of OTP where superstars can be imported to whatever team the captain chooses. If your superstar is a QB, he would replace Tom Brady if you chose the Patriots.
Instead of controlling an entire squad, you only control your superstar.
That means up to six people can be on each team. As long as a maximum of three superstars are on each side of the ball, it doesn't matter which position the superstars play. Of course, it wouldn't make sense if two or more QBs are on the same team. The same goes for multiple RBs.
This game play is realistic because offensive players have to watch the defense and vice-versa.
If lag is a concern, then it can be three people on each team, like OTP. Each person would then have an offensive and defensive superstar and play both sides of the ball. This would encourage people to specialize in a position on both sides of the ball.
If something along these lines is the big secret the Madden developers are hiding from us, that would be awesome!
