    Re: Madden 13 article

    [quote user="SweetZombieJesus"]Thank God. Collinsworthless makes me want to stick a spinning drill in my ears and I hate hearing "pash rush", and that other guy, "blow the whistle, toot toot!" VOMIT

    Now, will they fix the unstoppable McFadden sweep?

    Will they fix the unblockable 49ers blitzes?

    McFadden Sweep? not sure if thats a specific play but you can stop "sweeps" or "tosses" easily by playing cover three in just about any defensive set. Or user the MLB and take the outside option away forcing him to come inside (usually results in a limited gain)

    Anything in madden can be dealt with you just need to know how. If the individual is blitzing a ton block extra guys? I beat people that play the the niners all the time and they don't have any special blitzing powers.

    I think some people just hate madden for the sake of hating it lol. Granted the game isn't perfect but its not horrible by any means.

    If you play a guy online using the Raiders, 100% of the time he will use this one single play and it's good for first down yardage EVERY SINGLE TIME. It's incredibly frustrating. Doesn't matter what defense you have called (I have tried EVERYTHING including CB blitzes to the side he's running), you can angle your linemen and lb'ers, and position your outside LB to be in his path it doesn't matter. It's actually pretty widely known this "bug" has been in the game for years. It's like a GOD MODE that the devlopers put in on purpose. I find a lot of people playing Chris Johnson doing the same thing but I can stop them while McFadden is unstoppable.

    However the next time I end up in this situation I will try sticking with a cover 3.

    There are people who manage to get the front 7 tight up on the line (literally on the LoS) and they are unblockable whether you're in a no WR goal line formation or in shotgun for a quick pass... Magically blitz Willis past any blocking scheme (and again here it doesn't matter if you've got enough men on the line to block and they somehow magically know whether you're running or throwing before the snap despite audibles and fake audibles sometimes many times). I'm convinced there are many people out there cheating and a smaller number altering the game parameters with a JTAG.

    Re: Madden 13 article

    Why do i get the feeling that all the "fixes" they put in place this year will just cause all sorts of new issues?

    Now the DBs are not going to be able to make a catch when they dont see the ball, ok... but I get the feeling they arent going to turn for the ball correctly, or watch when the receiver puts his arms out and try to knock things away either.

    to stop tosses:

    1.) Try using the 46 defense which is just basically a variation of the 43 except you get an extra guy in the box.

    3.) call a cover 3

    2.) Spread your D-line and "flare" your ends (this can be done with a combination of the d-pad and right trigger).

    This should stop the tosses. Also, for an even better effect, take the players in the "light blue zones" and manually spread them out even wider. They will break down the play out wide and your flaring d-line will stop that play cold (not to mention you get great pressure in case of a pass).

    for blitzes:

    Try calling plays that have "blue routes". Usually running backs and tight ends will run these routes. What happens is they first pick up the blitz then peel out on a route, this is excellent as it stops the pressure and lets you hit these players for a big gain.

    Or, just light the guy up with screen passes. Or quick passes (slants).

    Ugh, the Tony Rhomo slobbering.

    The sad part about Madden is that the players at the top aren't actually using football strategy, it boils down to a few plays that work more often than they don't, despite their football worthiness.

    I'm guilty of this too to a small degree, in that my playbook has about a dozen "staple" plays. But then from year to year these plays just randomly stop being effective.

    Pretty much. The game feels very mechanical - almost on-rails.

    I wish they'd rebuild the thing from the ground up.
    EA's FIFA franchise has gone from strength to strength, whereas their NFL and (even worse) NBA franchises have stagnated.

    EA will be terrified if they lose exclusivity rights to the NFL. 2K killed NBA Live and it'll kill Madden as well.

    yep, fifa series is the best sports games ever made. And they make serious changes every year to improve the game radically. And they push realism at the expense of everything.

    Madden developers on the other hand just seem to want to make an arcade game with an NFL license.

    Madden suffers from Elder Scrolls syndrome. Repeat an incredibly specific line over and over again, and it just sounds weird.

    Madden 2009 was the last madden game I bought, and I said after that terrible game I was done with the series until EA fixed it big time.
