Madden NFL 21 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, Stadia)
Key Highlights:


Fix for QB freezing in certain play formations

Fix for missing Pro Bowl active abilities

Fixed rusher logic in certain punting situations

Gameplay Updates:

Fixed an issue allowing punts to frequently get blocked by an AI-controlled rusher when lined up inside the 5-yard line.

Dev Note: To address this issue, we tuned the logic of the rusher that was blocking the kick. The AI was timing the Dive perfectly and not in a situation where the player rushing the punter would layout and dive due to the blocker between him and the punter.

  • You don't even have to sort out the name issue for the draft classes ....
  • I was just waiting for the update on the name issues in draft classes to start a realistic career. It's cool to add new things but start already by removing the bugs
  • @EA_Blueberry Did the gang tackling or consecutive hit tackles get fixed

    The UL Token Solo is now totally BROKEN. Your entire team is replaced by the Bears Franchise team and every position is messed up. Trubisky is the starting LT Foles is the starting RT, LE Jenkins is the starting HB. EVERYONE IS IN THE WRONG POSITION. And even if you win it fails and gives theTRY AGAIN screen

    hey there. Try setting your lineup to GENERATE BEST OVR with the lineup tool when you go to your roster screen, then immediately go to the challenge before you make any changes to your lineup. That should fix this and the team is aware of the issue, our apologies for any frustration it may have caused.

    The new update is good for trade logic however the AI no longer makes any trades whatsoever. Ntm now the AI fills the free agency pool with tons of players 75+ overall.

    @TJBley77

    Is this for a new franchise you created and are AI trades enabled?
  • No I'm talking about profaned names in the draft classes!!!!

    This problem had already been said in February and you said that it would be resolved ...

    No although I have the problem aswell

    Yes trades are active for all teams and the CPU made zero. I simmed an online league three years and had one trade and then simmed three years in an offline league and got no trades. Eventually I turned off trade deadline to see if that inspired more trades and got nothing.

  • @EA_Blueberry?????
  • Undo sign still doesn‘t work since the last update version 1.011.000

    Why is this not fixed? @EA_Blueberry
  • Remove this bug from profaned names!!!
  • So can you guys recreate the coaching carousel like they had in NCAA? It would be nice to start as a position coach and work my way through the ranks in franchise mode. And when a player retires they can continue as a coach or GM. Also add a 4-2 defensive playbook.
