    My friend and I have been playing madden since 2001. We’ve played over 13,000 games during that span. We’ve seen the game evolved in a positive and negative way over the years. I’ve notice over the last 5 months the defense has more leverage over the offense. I’m witnessing the secondary flipping their hips at an extremely faster rate and breaking on routes out of their zone responsibilities particularly the safeties. Today vs a Cover 4 defense I was in an empty set slot WR running a corner route the SS covered 8 yds in literally 1.1 sec to jump this route while covering the deep half. I know football and this shouldn’t be possible. EA please fix the defense. I’m making real football reads but the D is making unrealistic plays on balls during coverage.

    Packs that never contain a good surprise. Not a player above 90 in 6 months. Always 1000 or 10000k with dailies.

    important: The absence of a chat room which penalizes isolated players. in the past we had the opportunity to make friends through this discussion center. Especially since today we can play in groups and build squads. Alone it is impossible.

    Pack odds are shown under details before purchasing the pack to give you expectations on what is to be pulled. I've had a couple years where I didn't get any top tier pulls but the coins from selling all the items from packs really helped me get the players I wanted by purchasing them outright from the auction house. I get what you're saying though, a nice pull here and there can make it feel like a lot more fun.

    As for the chat rooms, that's been slowly transitioning out of games over recent years because of how the industry is moving towards other ways to socialize, such as Facebook groups, LFG channels on Xbox/PlayStation, Discord, and forums like this one. Chat rooms are fun no doubt, but they also require moderation which can additional costs to maintaining it.

    Video games are not a suffering industry. And I understand that EA is not a small business either. We are in the 21st century, we could pretend to be a chat room in the game.

    Glad I’m not the only one experiencing scripted, non logic game play, i don’t feel so bad after all, but there only one way madden will fix this game, i can say it on this forum but just think about what ppl do when they want change I’ll just leave it at that

    The stinking "4-minute offense" is what pissed me off. It takes you out of your game plan and gives you three **** plays, often no run play at all. There's no way to control which plays are in the 4-minute offense that I find. It loses me games!
  • this game flat out cheats for whatever user it deems should win.
    I'm so sick of it, every year they sell us this malfunctioning game. 2K comes out with a game every year and you dont experience anywhere near the amount of bad game play and scripting EA has in madden, live and fifa.
    I get so sick of either winning or losing games against other players online because the computer is interfering in the game. If I make a bad decision on offense or defense, then, I should pay for it! I dont require the cpu nerfing the other guys ai players so that I can be successful and vice versa.. what doesnt ea get about that?!
    Just as many people will buy the game off of brand recognition alone without the dda scripting.

  • I played a game today where a fella kept running the same play over and over out of gun tight. all he did was run in routes and slants-- RIGHT INTO A HOOK ZONE.. but happens? Nothing.. ai players wouldnt even react to the player running pass them. When I tried to user it, the cpu made me sort of run unnaturally slow as if the player in usering was trying to go in a different direction.. literally unreal. On the rare occasion I did get a swat or an interception, Mean Jo Green, a DEFENSIVE TACKLE, chased EDDIE JACKSON down the field and tackled him! what sense does that make?

    The guy ran a stupid blitz in which he sent 6 or 7 people and committed every time. But guess what? Although what he was doing was outrageously cheesy and stupid, the cpu insisted on his team being successful so any runs to the opposite side of where he was committing to was still stuffed for a loss. If he ran committed to the right and I ran to the left his defensive end would morph out of ine animation to a tackle animation without even going through the motions of switching directions like a normal human being. When I tried passing the ball his corners, who initially started out running in the direction he ran committed, would recover by switching to a pass defense animation and literally cover several yards to stay in contention for an interception or a swat..

    this is NOT a good game, it simply isnt. Its one of the absolute worse games and honestly madden has been bad for well over a decade now. Madden 25 was decent but still did unbearably stupid things
  • Also, a tell tale sign that the cpu is cheating you is when your guards, for the whole game wont block! why in Gods name would anyone create a football game in where normal football logic can be nerfed? Tackles, and fullback who should be engaging with outside linebackers and corners are either being thrown to the ground or completely running in the opposite direction or pass them without reacting.. This isnt smart
  • game is scripted.
    I have experienced this well, whether in week end league or solo battle. I don't want to convince anyone. I am convinced of this for various obvious reasons. game uninstalled.
  • I rattled off a bunch of wins-- something like 7 or 8
    and guess what happened? Right now I'm on a 4 or 5 game losing streak. What's infuriating is that it's not due to anyone being really good, nope!
    Every game I have gotten no less than 3 fumbles..
    Played against someone who I had no idea was a kid until the end of the game when he started talking on the mic. This little fella didnt know how to do anything! But fly routes and a run play-- not even a stretch or one of those glitchy plays.
    I FUMBLED on the opening punt
    He threw a fly route into 3 or 4 people! Spec catch.. not even a superstar abled player!
    the next quarters were plagued with unreal block shed and him coming out in field goal defense but still being able to defend slants, fly routes, screens etc!!
    The kid ran hb iso the WHOLE GAME and literally got 4 or 5 yards each play if not 20!!

    THIS GAME is absolutely ridiculous considering it costs over 60 dollars!! Something needs to be said.. I seriously need someone to answer for this. I talk about this on the forums a lot.. this is mess

    There's things in the game that aren't realistic. I see why there's people who dislike the game because of it.
  • Madden has become less and less realistic each and every year. EA touts this game as a 'football simulation' when in actuality, it couldn't be further from that. The game runs entirely on scripted animations. Nothing happens in the game if the CPU doesn't allow for it. Nothing is in the hands of the actual gamer. When you look at games like APF 2K8, that is a true simulation style game. Madden used to be a true simulation style game back on the PS2, but not since then. All EA and Madden cares about is putting all their efforts into MUT, rather than using all that Madden card pack money they're racking in from children essentially gambling, to actually fix the game! I made an elongated post that got moved for whatever reason, to the Madden 21 wishlist.. Feel free to go check it out, all.

    My weekend experience in H2H and in the Weekend League, 4 similar weeks.

    H2H
    players see my 3 golden tickets at start - they quit and i got a win.
    I lost before the play-off coz i were with 3 losses and my last game crashed because the last player whose name will remain unknown for eternity left the loading screen and I had to leave by doing alt F4.

    Week-end League
    I know from experience that on PC with 14 wins and +80000 str shedule, I can be in the TOP 100.
    With a start of 5 - 0 and 20 games to go, I am confident. I meet an easy player I lead 14 - 0, the screen freezes, I receive a defeat. the easy player is actually in the top of the list at this time the leader of the WL with 18 wins and 0 losses. and of course this is a coincidence (ironic). he must be in TOP 10 now who knows.
    But the most hilarious thing is that then I chained the defeats, i were bad anyway, my run plays was pathetic, 0 catchs, fumbles anyway with mohamed sanu, 0 interceptions with ramsey or leblanc like soaped hands, Moss or Green were some ghosts , all my great players were ridiculous. I didn't have a chance in play anymore. I even met this "easy" player again but this time he was strong and he won. So I finished with only 13 wins and +80000 str shedule and i know tomorrow i will be not in TOP 100.
    I know that my game is scripted - sabotage my games - week end league is a nice prank coz Cheaters never punished.

    Thanks EA.


  • @weerstandige it's absolutely ridiculous how much this game cost for the product they give us. The worse part is that they actually claim that dda etc isnt in the game. As if we don't play the game to know lol
