EA has released Madden 2010’s first patch. The patch is 185mb in size, and is intended to fix the following:

* Added Super Bowl and Playoff Field conditions for Online Franchise
* Fixed False Start Grieving issues with Online games
* Fixed video player issue where video would hang on latent connections
* Improved uploaded highlight quality
* Switched ranked online games to 7 min Q’s
* Fixed random stability issues

Gameplay Specific fixes:

* Tuned slider effectiveness (Run blocking and broken tackles esp.)

I think the only question here is, why get rid of the 5min Q’s?

    I personally think this 7 min quarters is a bunch of crap, it takes almost an hour and a half to play one game and for me I get tired of playing it by the third quarter, also it now takes much longer to get wins when you used to be able to get three wins in a lil under 3 hours now it takes almost five the shit is ridiculous and needs to be changed

    You have a lot of people out there that use time management. I could technically hold the ball for the whole ten minutes of each half. I think it’s a step in the right direction for ranked games. They’re making sure people have to play both sides of the ball multiple times.

    or you could get 100 scored on you instead of 60…lol

    I prefer 5 mins.7 mins is going to take way too long. I hope in the next update they put an option where you can choose 5 or 7 mins.
