A very normal play seen often. The DB has more priority to the ball than my TE. I’m also it better position and the DB should actually be boxed out. Defenders should have to get underneath my TE to pick that imo. Defenders shouldn’t have more priority to a ball over WRs and TEs. It should at least be even imo.


Again another normal play seen very often. Tip picks going of players helmets, pads, cleats, etc right into a defenders hands. These happen like 2-3 times a game. In real life that happens maybe once a season.


Finally the good old 3 man rush nose tackle sheds one block then goes on to waltz passed 3 other blockers that don’t have the awareness to attempt to block him for a sack within 2 seconds while I’m blocking 8 players. I know I should have doubled and wasn’t thinking, but goodness, the players have no awareness at all.

Not to mention the run being OP, escape artist being OP, outside WR out routes can only be covered by a cov 2 concept, awareness and play rec ratings are in the game for no reason, user defenders not having to slow down at all to change directions, and they are still patching the game 8 months in; so we basically bought a beta version of the game for full price. It’s just not fun.


Good luck to all y’all still playing.

  • I'm about done with Madden myself. I think EA needs to take a full year off and redo Madden from the ground up. If they use Frostbite engine next madden I will not purchase it. I'm gonna play it early and if the same things still plague the game I am not buying it. U can't even throw in the middle of the field anymore. The safeties jump everything and have more rights to the ball then these 6'5 250 TE. Its ridiculous no user control and catch in traffic is horrific. I threw a pass the other day and the ball hit the CB in his back and sat on his back. The user took control of his man turned around and picked the ball off. We complained all year for them to fix psychic DB's, user lurking, turbo defenders being much faster then offense. EA fixed nothing we requested. But what do u expect when alignment hasn't even been fixed properly. We have to base align just to get zone defenders in the proper spots smh.
  • Yea people have requested but they'll never take a year off. I think they have to use frostbite due to some contract or something which makes the game super buggy. But same here though. If the game is still no user control, ran by animations, and the other issues we've been complaining about all year, i'm not touching it either. Idk how abilities and X factor will be next year as well.

    I'm honestly probably just done all together for lack of differentiation. People just get on youtube to see set ups and your offense/defense react the same way everytime vs it. Super boring.
  • Not to mention they sell you a beta copy of the game and attempt to patch glitches and bad gameplay for the entire duration of the game until the next one is due to come out. There has to be some type of law against that.

    I especially believe that the average team gives no chance of winning excepted if laggy server make they can't catch; your average is big and higher than your opponent, your 146 blitz glitch will destroy it. Otherwise, your defense is transparent.
    For Madden PC: dont need skills, just average.

  • I uninstalled right after I seen Migos lol but I was throwing a pass to my TE(zach ertz) soon as I threw it vince biegel(LB) latches on to ertz than one handed INT... playing offline h2h Sim all-madden franchise.. shouldn't matter what mode or "skill level" im playing on the 90+ pass catcher should never lose to the high 60 pass defender that's 30point difference let along Mia pass D looked like buffalo... A year off isn't needed we need people who's actually connected to the community and care about improving their product.. between Madden and NHL forum's I only see "Devs" in the NHL forums making excuses for their poor gameplay but back to Madden you guys are experiencing the same issue as me and I see little to none upgrades or patches thanks for the videos and feedback cause I use to think it was just something I was doing wrong..

    (Data) Franchise stat: why in Madden the interception ratio higher than deflection ratio 7 int 9 deflection 40 catches allow ..
  • Yea I don’t understand why they made it like that.

    I had Kenny Golliday in an online league I was in, get mossed for a pick with the OBJ animation by Khalil Mack. I went to look at the attributes and Golliday was 95 spec, 95 jump, 92 catch. Mack was 60 catch, 48 spec, 50 man, 50 zone. What’s the point of even having attributes in the game if attributes 40-50 points higher still don’t win out? A defender with 48 spec and 60 catch made a catch that no WR can even make on the game. Literally what’s the point of even playing?
  • YouTube! Custom playbooks! Bad pursuit angles! Loss The ability to view H2H stats! MUT! All of these things are killing Madden. LISTEN!!! We only play Madden to see how we stack up against players around the country!! We don’t want to experiment with Quavo at QB! We don’t want Bart Starr at LB! Just fix the game play for the H2H ranked players just as you do for MUT! H2H guys HATE MUT!!!! It’s a Kiddie game mode a we will stop playing the gm before we result to playing MUT.
  • I know that MUT is actually making madden a ton of income. A lot of people (mostly children) love MUT. Nothing will ever change for us until MUT isn’t the cash cow anymore. Which will be never again lol unless the judicial system finds it as gambling; which I haven’t heard much about lately so I’m guessing it’s over and can keep doing lot boxes. But idk.

    I just uninstalled this game tonight. Every time they do an update it takes forever for things to start working again. I usually win 10 games before losing say 4, and since the last two updates I can not win a game to save my life. Defense is broken, offense is broken. Spammers win every game. No skill required just find a glitch and use it over and over. And everyone I play does onside kick every single possession. Adding these factors to players ruined the game. It isnt even real football anymore. So tired of the constant madden updates that ruin the game play. Make a good product and leave it alone.
  • Yes. Sadly at this point its not even football. Its just spam stretch, dive, deep crossing routes, and corner routes on offense. Then on defense just sit in 3-4 or 1-4-6 and send 6-7 rushers. The game has been like this since like madden 25 when people would A gap glitch you and the DT walk in unblocked every play; but at least you had some user control and could rocket catch. Now its a spam fest AND everything is ai controlled.
  • My personal favorite is how every player seems to have an inner ear infection or is drunk... the number of stumbles and trips in every game (just about every other play) is ridiculous.

    I’m done with this Maddens gameplay and I know I’m preaching to the choir but this is ridiculous. Dbs winning on every ball. People who play with linebackers don’t ever get tired and can keep a WR in check 50 yards plus down field for 4 qtrs. The drops on hits from dbs is not right neither, dannnng, y’all have the receivers out here on straight powder puff mode while the dbs are on constant beast mode. The dbs break on the ball too is ridiculous!! How can you be beat bad and still make up on a pass thrown away from the dbs and he either breaks it up or pics it????????????
    This Madden has no love for the receivers, dbs on every tram are all Pro Bowlers according to Madden 20

    Madden needs to get its stuff strighten out.. this is utter ❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • I don't think you're wrong on some of these, and I agree that receivers don't fight for the ball enough and also think the result of a 50/50 pass is too often an INT, but to be fair you took your WR out of the equation by attempting a possession catch on the first video.
  • That’s fair. Aggressive catch just makes you drop it and it goes 80 yards in the air for a tip pick so I never use it. It’s pointless imo.

    Maybe they can reinvest some of the 3.7 Billion dollars they earned in 2019 from digital sales to reinvent a new Madden? source: https://s22.q4cdn.com/894350492/files/doc_financials/2020/q1/Q1-FY20-Earnings-Release.pdf

    Until you can draw your own plays and take them online, Madden will never be true football. There's not an NFL team in existence that uses generic playbooks created by a 3rd party and we're all using 3rd party playbooks - ridiculous. Designing plays is what football is all about from the time we were little kids drawing plays in the dirt or on the chest of our t-shirt, the chess game, what we have instead is just an arcade game, far far away from being a true football simulator.

    I would love create a play to come back. It was my favorite thing ever. I would create formations, plays, and an entire playbook for like the first two days I got the game before I even played a game...

    But I understand why they ditched create a play especially for online play. You would be able to create some plays that could probably break then game. But, I do feel like if they made play rec matter so defenders would catch on to plays ran often, then that would make it possible to have created plays online. But they'll never make play rec matter again because they want the game to be child friendly so we're just in purgatory.
  • the reason most of these outlandish things happen in the games is due to how the cpu scripts outcomes. For instance, if you're NOT suppose to get the first down (I'm sure every understands what I mean when I say something ISNT suppose to happen in this game) and the person you're playing isnt making the correct defensive options, and you throw a pass or something to an open receiver, what the cpu will do is ADJUST that play. If a player is in the vicinity, that defender will be unnaturally slid into position to make a play on the ball when they werent at all in position to begin with. Or, if NO player is there to defend 1 of two things will happen: first, the ball will be overthrown regardless of what buttons you pressed or standing still
    OR, the cpu will nerf your receiver. What I mean is even if you press x/A for possession catch or square for RAC, your catch animation won't trigger and the ball will just hit you in the head or whatever
    it's the absolute most unacceptable thing about this game
  • Yea idk why EA thinks we want scripted outcomes. It’s like that even on fifa. I can’t wait for the 2K football game next year.
