    I have tapped B immediately after A multiple times, just to see the outcome and have been called for it like three or four times.

    It’s been a common issue that hasn’t been fully resolved. Those claiming to not have any issues with it are totally full of shit.

    Its literally the exact same game as it has been the past 5 years.

    I had Madden 15 and saw Madden 19 on sale for 8 bucks a few months back. Bought it and was how dumbfounded at how nothing had changed. Like the menus the presentation everything was exactly the same I don't think they changed a single thing in 4 years of franchise mode. You'd have to be missing a few screws to keep buying it every single year at full price.

    There is a significant difference in gameplay this season over last. And last year they made some large changes over the previous year.

    Do they neglect some aspects of the game? Sure. But it’s football and it’s all we have. Plus being part of a 32 member league keeps things fun.

    First copy I've owned in probably 4 years.

    I'm definitely enjoying a lot of the new plays. The RPO's are great when I don't get called for mad down field.

    Yeah, same thing though haven’t bought FIFA in a few years either. I’ve just found the gameplay more enjoyable when I have played.

    Overall though madden is OK, and if they do some kind of patch soon, I think it’ll be fine.

    Only thing that kills me with the RPOs is that sometimes a backside DL sacks me before I can sling it out on a bubble screen. I guess I could shift my line that way but that ruins the run option

    Been playing in TMB franchise for 8 years. It’s changed a lot. It’s not perfect but it has improved a ton.

    Bold sentence let’s me know you’re just shitting on your keyboard. And spending $50 on a video game in your 30s... is that something to make fun of? Wanna look at amazon order histories or bar tabs to see what $50 well spent looks like :hurfdurf:

    Dumbasses like you and dump are exactly why they make very minimal changes year after year. Because they know you'll buy whatever shit they flop out which keeps the game from being as good as it could be. If you actually withheld that 60 bucks for a few years they would notice the decline in sales and strive to do better . They made 800 million off of MUT which is why that's the only mode they put any effort into. EA tried the same shitty tactics in Battlefront and other properties and got severe backlash and saw their stocks crater. They're still making changes and improvements to that game almost 2 years later because of that backlash. But the Madden community doesn't seem to give af which is why they keep pulling this shit.

    I think we all possess the knowledge of boycotting principles, methods, and desired results. But if you’re RSK Boycott, PhD you can absolutely tell us what you know.

    We also all possess the common sense necessary to realize that someone consumer shaming a handful of posters on a message board because they don’t like the product is a simple case of being a message board cunt and not a legitimate call to action.

    LT QB cheese toggle is going to make mahomes, rodgers and russell infuriating to play against with their abilities and xfactors.

    Assuming the QB fumble frequency is still broken for dual threat QBs, either of Rodgers or Wilson's combination of 2 abilities + xfactor are just fantastically designed cheddar machines

    QBs fumble easily but I’ve seen it more in the pocket than outside scrambling. They’re breaking tackles in stupid fashion though

    Do you guys have trouble with your kicker on the QB1 mode? I've left the kicker with a chip shot numerous times only for him to miss it. It's costing me games.

    He doesn't miss it for me. The CPU just spams fake field goals for some reason. I probably have 5 FG attempts for the season because the CPU is constantly calling fakes in supersim

    Got killed by people scrambling with lamar & cam last night. If I don’t use contain they scramble outside, if I do contain they run up the middle

    Only way I could stop them was by forcing a couple fumbles but still got totally gashed

    Is madden ever going to make deep ball accuracy a thing? Every QB in the game can drop a 50 yard bomb to a receiver in stride

    Anyway the key to user LB play is to play the receivers, not your zone. If you just sit in your hook zone you’ll get picked apart, you have to locate the in/cross/slant and proactively run to it whether it’s in your defined zone or not

    Is there a way to quickly switch to a specific defender preplay?

    Sometimes I can’t switch to the LB I want due to where people are lined up

    Had an absurd series of events last night

    I scored with 20 seconds left in half. Touchback. Pick a prevent defense, guy runs up the middle 75 yards for a TD. Kicks off to me, touchback. Then he goes prevent, I run up the middle 75 yards for a TD

    Not sure about double team. Gonna be real annoying when LBs come unblocked because your RG is running out to help with a DE

    Yeah, I can see it being good when you’re facing a dude like Donald. But yeah definitely has potential to be a classic EA addition where it’s just totally overdone and backfires.
