Like the cpu field goals ALWAYS going right down the middle.

Impossible to block FG and punts.

very bad blocking AI by the fullback and on punt returns.

Switching to the correct man on D (when the ball is in the air it would switch to the linebacker 20 feet under the ball instead of where the ball was going.)

I see most of the other glaring issues have been resolved but have not heard about these.

You could block punts although just like in the NFL it was a rare occurance, I'm sure it was a little more rare than it actually happens in the NFL though.

I've never had a problem with this.

But not I haven't seen VC address any of these questions in any interviews. I'd also like to know if kickers can kick from farther back this year, seemed like last year it was impossible to kick long field goals that kickers real could actually make.

Well a lot of blocked punts/FG in the NFL are a result of bad snaps/holds which never happened in 2K3.

Now that there are going to be bad snaps maybe there will be more blocked fgs.

depended on the kicker as it should. turn the wind on also. a perfect kick from Longwell for instance could be good from up to about 55 yards with no wind. lesser kickers plus wind would make them good for about that much...elam could probably hit a 60 yarder. the big question is can we change the weather online?

Maybe they just didn't give Janikowski as much of a let as I thought they should have, I forget my longest, but I know he wasn't ever able to hit from 60.

Re: Anyone find out if they fixed some important things...

LBs shouldn't be allowed to be kickers anyway, lol, but I don't know his ratings. Just from my guess of NFL kickers with a little bit of wind and perfect angle and power he should be able to hit from 60. I've seen Longwell, Elam, Gramatica and even Anderson kick the hell out of the ball. Never seen 60 b/c for the most part these were all online, that distance wasn't tried and/or whoever was kicking didn't get it perfect but I've seen plenty well over 50. The farthest I've seen made was 57 yards.
