I love playing sports games against mates, nothing is more fun than sitting down with 3 other mates and having a games day. So I do hope that offline multiplayer is an important part of this rugby. I was playing Fifa 10 with some mates and it got me thinking, Lounge mode would be great for the new rugby game. For those who don't know what it is, it is a custom league for offline multiplayer, you play who ever you want and you recieve points at the end of the game depending on the results and how you came by them. It keeps all the stats like points for, against, fouls etc. It also gives you special things you can use before a game, like start with a headstart of 1,2 or 3 goals, get specific stats boosts for the game and many more. It allows you to add in new players at anytime and there is no fixed fixtures, just choose the 2 teams and play. I think this would be perfect in the new rugby game. It has everything I want for offline multiplayer, stats tracking, "player profiles", results tracking and the ability to have like 16 profiles on the league board. If you could tie in custom tournaments with it, I think this would be the perfect offline multiplayer experience. What do others think?
