  • The guy above hasn't yet been stopped... That doesn't mean he won't be. Every year, there's a gimmick that people haven't created a scheme against. This year, for now at least, this is that gimmick. I'm oversimplifying of course, but I've played against the META gimmick since Madden 2003 and there is always an answer.…
  • Afro, If there's one thing I've learned since hosting my first tournament back in 2007, it's that Pro Madden players design their schemes to beat other pro Madden players. They are also a tight knit community where players scout one another and are well versed on what everyone else is trying to do. So when something is…
  • EA_Blueberry is right, although the Twitch video doesn't display the phenomenon the OP is asking about... You can absolutely switch defender twice if the first switch doesn't take you to the defender you want initially. The mechanic works as quickly as you can press the switch button... But the effectiveness relies heavily…
  • Once upon a time you could stand players on the D-Line in Madden... But the "it's not football" crowd complained loudly so that part of football is no longer available to us. Later
  • Neither a bug or a glitch... You get to decide whether you play the entire game (offense, defense, special teams), as the offense, or just key moments... If you choose to, you can play as the QB and allow the CPU to catch passes - OR - throw with the QB and click onto the receiver and user catch. I spent last week checking…
  • You're making that mistake again... You're assuming that your opponent is "glitching." I implore you to change that way of thinking, because it justifies your failures in your mind. If you keep that justification, you only handicap yourself. Let's step through the reason your opponents 'predict' who you're throwing to. You…
  • Every play from any playbook, including West Coast and Run-N-Shoot, should be available to custom playbooks. I'm biased, I only use customs. NEVER SHOTGUN. But with so much emphasis on making every minute variation of shotgun formations available while abandoning some age old football formations - it's like they are trying…
  • First, pancakes vs weak box was a stupid addition to Madden... IMO, historically only QB Vision and Nano detection having a blitzing player pause in the A-Gap were worse. Invariably, defensive linemen were the ones getting pancaked in weak box scenarios. Five players simultaneously... RIDICULOUS!!! The only reason those…
  • The Skills Trainer has some valuable tutorials in it along with drills to get you familiar with the players, concepts, and controller layout; but it does assume you are already familiar with some basics of the game. There are a bunch of people here that would love to help you, myself included. But we'll need to know what…
  • I haven't used shotgun since Madden 2003 and I-Form was (and is still) my answer to inside heat. My RB (McCaffery) and TE (Olsen) are both too good at pass receiving to block, so I usually just block the FB and get the ball off quickly. No need to slide protection, ID the Mike, or make any of the blocking adjustments -…
  • I'm usually the contrarian whenever there is a problem with EA, since I lean toward user error being the cause of most issues with Madden (a background in PC/Mac tech support informs many of those opinions). But I'm in 100% agreement with you regarding H2H statistics. Funny thing is, I haven't seen anyone anywhere disagree…
  • I think you're reading more into my question than intended... So let me give you my perspective... We have to be careful that the suggestions we make don't handicap our own strategic freedom. Years ago, you could sub any player into any position - just like the in NFL. But when EA addressed the complaints, they pigeonholed…
  • Football players play Madden too. Imagine being on the cover of a sports game and not being able to use yourself on that game. Or better yet... Imagine playing MUT and all you have are players that are available today on real rosters who aren't injured. Madden is a FANTASY. We should not forget that. Later
  • Back in Madden NFL 2003, when A-gap blitzes were really nanos, general consensus was told me that Shotgun was the only way to run an viable offense. Being the contrarian that I am, I quit Shotgun cold turkey. Been under center ever since. 17 years later, I feel like running my offense from under center gives me an…
  • So here's my first game since moving to my new apartment... I've queued this up to my first deep pass attempt. Gotta thank tosstamer1 again for inspiring the research into the video that made this bomb possible. My earlier game bomb attempts were HORRIBLE. https://youtu.be/v_HTXpDfwM4?t=734 Silky... YES, I still use CAM…
  • 2 Questions: What is wrong with a RB @ TE? Why wouldn't the 'game' be able to adjust to a RB @ TE? The reason I'm asking... The 'game' makes it easy to cover RB or TE with LB, SS, FS, and CBs simply by changing your formations. If the personnel announcement (ex. 2RB, 1TE, 2WR) isn't announcing the RB as an RB, it's because…
  • Standard Cover 0 uses the 7 yard cushion to account for the risk and shades inside so DB's can use the sideline as an extra defender. But any QB worth his salt can see those vanilla Cover 0's a mile away. I am referring to isn't the generic one people are taught when they install the defensive game plan in training camp,…
  • I saw footage of Zeke vs Sweat. Pass was on time and the defender was beat, throw didn't have enough air under it. I'm TNT713 on the PS4. Add me and we can get on the sticks. In the beginning of the year, I threw an interception on about 85% of my deep pass attempts. I lost virtually every 50/50 battle. In videos at my…
  • Shotgun? Ughhhhh!!! LOL There are a few plays stock plays I run as-is... But I'm hot routing the crap out of most of them.
  • Nevermind... saw the other thread.
