'Riding the gravy train"

How the hell are we supposed to complete this 5th one of the last batch of Turkey Bowl challenges?
My receivers drop the ball as soon as they get breathed on. My running back, Walter Payton, doesn't even try to stay on his feet if he gets tapped! Linebackers and even D-linemen are all of a sudden super agile, and can tip your pass even if they're diving sideways.
How come almost every pass gets intercepted? What is with these tipped passes that get tipped WAY up in the air, and stay so the AI can pick it off?
We're asked to get only 20 rushing yards on this drive, and score a rushing TD. Well, if every running play was not already known by the AI, maybe we can finish this challenge.
This incredibly unfair challenge is a slap in the face of anyone that has any knowledge of football. This crap is clearly scripted to drive us insane and want to take the DVD and just smash it in pieces. Someone's head should roll over this crap. Don't even get me started with that STUPID Dads nonsense, where you can't expect the smaller players to possibly reach a high pass. Numerous dropped passes in the end zone, because how can they catch a ball that is bigger than their body?

I really want to tee off, but i don't want to come off as some maniac. All of this grief just to get a 93 rated player that i NEVER had in MUT. Maybe it's because i gave up after awhile, and especially after getting all the trophies. And of course i already know that UT is basically $ for you guys. Pull a 93 rated in packs? Ha! No one ever did. But, pay real money for those points that you can never earn and you can!
You've really outdone yourselves, EA and Madden. I'm good enough to beat teams on Pro, but why disguise what is really All-Madden difficulty. Why do you want to do this to us and insult our football AND overall intelligence like this? Been buying Madden since 1999. I rolled with 2K from 2002-2005, but got my first Madden in '99, and came back in '08, and would still be with 2K today if they still made NFL games.
Then i looked at the final challenge, which we have to get 50 rushing yards, nothing else. Really? Maybe it's a good thing that i didn't get to that final one, because only 'Inside Zone' plays are consistently effective because again, this is All-Madden difficulty disguised as Pro. How on earth do i always get only 2 yards tops on an 'Outside Zone,' or 'Sweep' plays that the AI magically knows you're trying to run.
This really brought out anger in me that i am ashamed to show, but this set of challenges is that bad.
Whoever tested these, well, bring them to my place. I want to see them complete the last 4.

  • I think you posted this in the wrong forum, this is about Madden Mobile, these are Madden 19 challenges.
  • Dang. Sorry about that.

    Moved to the right section, and edited out an unnecessarily harsh title.
  • I'm in agreement with the OP. Why label it Pro when its obviously more difficult than that. I actually had a harder time with the complete 5, pass for 30, and get a rushing TD (or whatever the criteria was) challenge.

    I ran a counter out of Strong-I and flipped direction on the last challenge and was lucky enough to catch them in man coverage and was gifted a spin on the safety and actually beat it 1 play 1st try.

    I think my playstation knew I was dangerously close to doing something felonious after enduring the previous challenges.

    It really just accentuates what is one of the primary flaws with the entire game which is the cheese factor. All-Madden skill level really just means that the only way to consistently be successful is to consistently spam the cheese garbage that is basically unstoppable.

    In turn, said cheese gets equated with 'being good at the game'. Hence, nobody bothers to play authentically because they're not forced to by the game's design. And in time, people just quit caring about authenticity altogether. It's disappointing to say the very least.

    Man. I was able to finally pass this gravy train garbage. Maybe 60-70 tries. That's too much for 'Pro' difficulty.
    For that one, you have to score a rush TD. Did it on a 3rd down, but expected to have to try on 4th.

    I'll never forget the play. I called outside zone or something. It was as if the sea parted for my RB and the play seemed to go in slow motion! One of the biggest single victories of my gaming life.
    Needless to say, i jumped up and down like a little child for a few minutes.
    That next one is giving me issues, but nothing like the gravy train one.

    Thankfully, i passed all the challenges and got a 94 Alvin Kamara for my troubles, and yes, there were many.
