    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.

    There's no scripting in either game.
  • There is definitely scripting in both!

    @tosstamer1 one of the most frustrating things about the whole situation is that a good deal of madden heads are adults who grew up playing Madden, GameDay, Tecmo, and 2K so, we know the game inside and out. Its insulting actually to have to deal with this after paying around 70 dollars for the game.. I played a game about 2 days ago where nothing I did wrong would result in a bad play. When I made bad reads, the ball would still make it to receivers and the defense wouldnt swat or go for an interception at all.
    When I played defense, I could move my players around the field during the play without any lag and all animations, swats, interceptions would trigger without me pressing the button or even really being in position. I ran the ball for about 100 yards before halftime and I stopped even controlling the runs! I would literally hike the ball and I'd get 4 to 10 yards every play... I just quit the game and let the other guy have it because that's a trash way to win and it's not fun. For the most part neither the person I was playing nor myself had true control over the game. From the beginning, the cpu had decided I would win regardless of anything I or the other guy did... absolutely scripted
  • But get this! I decided to hop on the game today and I got everything back 😅
    so I play a guy who ran the same run play the whole game. It wasnt even from one of those weird formations. It was like some offtackle run that normally wouldnt even go for 3 yards.. but the guy rattled off 4 and 5 yards each attempt
    Worst part of it was the fact that when he threw the ball, it would always be the worse reads but his receivers would catch every pass because all of my ai players would stand there as if the ball hadn't been hiked.. like zombies.. no animations nothing
    my only interception was a user lurk with patrick Peterson and SOMEHOW Bruce Matthews and offensive linemen chases Patrick Peterson down in the open field -- not from an angle but literally from behind.. he wasn't even in the screen and I had ran almost 10 yards toward the endzone and BRUCE MATTHEWS chases me down and tackles me and I FUMBLE and Winslow, a tightend picks up the fumble and runs it back for a touchdown.. and no one could catch him.. this game is so bad but it's the only football game we have for the moment
    What's really horrible is that these things happen on the regular.. it's not like some every so often occurrence..this is how the game has played for years

    After 1000 MUT matches, what I noticed is your players on the field will play relevant to the opponent players. For example, your QB will throw very accurate when facing an inferior defense BUT your QB will throw unusually very poor if facing a superior defense. I think this is a sort of "scripting". I also noticed the kicker's meter will move slower facing inferior teams but will move faster facing superior teams.

    The game is still fun though, especially once you finally start getting better players on your team, and when you learn how to read defenses before the snap, and how to stop specific offensive plays. That's when it starts to get really fun.

    @therealsmartboy yea bro. I’ve been playing madden since 2002 and fifa since 2012.

    @EA_Blueberry An obvious example of scripting in Madden 20 is throwing up a 50/50 ball, clicking Y/triangle, and it gives your WR the animation where he’s going for the tackle or swat while the ball is in mid air. Not having user control over what happens and it’s left up to the CPU to decide what happens. Guess what that term is called? Lol

    I know this isn’t the fifa forum but an example of scripting in fifa 20 is when you tackle the ball and it goes right back to the player you tackled it from for a tap in goal (which happens on like 40% of tackles in the box). Not to mention hitting post on a shot then 2-3 immediate rebound attempts after go off the post and or crossbar.

  • absolutely.. you ever had the cpu break itself trying to script for the other guy?
    often times, the cpu, because its trying to level the playing field or whatever🙄, it will teleport players into position. It's the best description for it I have. it's like they will fast forward instantly to a spot to make a play

    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?

  • For now I am playing but I will really think about my next purchase. To regularly see two well identified players (whose names I would not mention here because of the rules of the forum), systematically in the top 100 of the weekend league when they made me several disco (s) glitchs. 4 times in a row in competition and at key moments in the match. and each time I lose the game while I am leading or the game has not started. this distorts my entire league weekend or my progression in H2H. I'm fed up and that's why I'm not sure to continue. but i like the game despite some flaws.
  • @line0fscrimm I havent even started on the glitches/hackers yet ... that's a whole other conversation

    the question is not yours, it is general and is composed as follows:What made me finally uninstall madden 20... by tosstamer1.

    the question isnt what think or is thinking therealsmartboy...
  • @line0fscrimm relax... I'm actually agreeing with everything you're saying. My point was that the hacking you spoke of absolutely makes the game unbearable.. welcome to the internet forums bro, other people will add to the conversations

  • Yea... very little user control this year. With 2k breathing down their necks, i'm assuming they'll finally make some changes that everyone wants to see but we'll see.

    How the fuh do you exit the game? It's wack.
  • very wack.. I hope they realize that as soon as the nfl license is no longer exclusive, there will be a mass exodus from madden
  • very wack.. I hope they realize that as soon as the nfl license is no longer exclusive, there will be a mass exodus from madden

    Let’s just hope the NFL doesn’t extend the license with them and let’s 2k and others get in otherwise we are screwed
  • pretty much

    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.

    Game froze as I’m about to tie the game. I was down by 10pts. 4th qter 1:42 to go..... As I’m kicking the FG game lagged causing me to miss the FG. I can’t take it anymore. Madden 20 got my blood pressure up.

    Can’t wait for 21
