G4R hasn't had a chance to put game through all of it's paces but early indications show new mechanics and engine. I'm going to go on a limb and say guys/ gals who take the time to do training skills (yes that pesky thing we all overlook each edition) may give them an edge over guys they normally would not have. I've watched a few streamed gms last 48hrs and saw numerous upsets. Guys who couldn't get over the hump are there now. For gang busters who are in the playoffs every year... get use to sitting on the sidelines once in awhile this edition. Most of ya skim over basic mechanics b/c game doesn't vary much year to year. Well that all changes and if ya don't have a solid game plan kiss your playoff streak goodbye.
Back to G4R's potential cover athlete. One of our members, Ron Baylor, picked up game a day ago and is already ranked #21 worldwide. In fact when we started writing this story he was ranked #35. He's beaten numerous online guys even the #1 ranked guy by a score of 31-0. We're glad to have him in our lg and he's even started one of his own, Madden 17 Bully league. His true love is basketball and we see him gracing the cover of a NBA franchise down the road. Article is 2 days behind schedule and he's probably in the top 10 now. Lace em up gents as we dive into a new season! -James
