Re: The most important 2 sliders.

The last thing I want to do is lower QB accuracy. I'm not about that life..lol I am just going to inch the reaction up a little at a time until it becomes harder, as well as lowering HUM pass block, so my decision making has to be faster. I may also lower WR catching. But I firmly believe in not having low QB accuracy. Also going to go back to 50 Threshold.



EDIT: Just to point out how I play QB... I focus on my reads, the minute the ball is snapped, and let the CPU control my drop back etc.. I focus on my receivers. I make one or two quick reads, and if nobody is open, then I look to move with QB. Either throwing it away or scrambling. If I get sacked before that, then I get sacked, and just get pissed at my O-Line. But I don't control my QB while I'm also looking at passing routes.. Sometimes I'll watch a receiver the whole time, waiting for him to make that cut, knowing I'm about to be creamed. Just hoping the timing is right for me to get the pass off.

Except for screens.. On screen plays, I always take control of QB at snap, and pull him straight back.

Re: The most important 2 sliders.

Very very very rough game, had a lot of issues.
Two random teams, I got lucky and got the Colts, played against the Bills.

RUSHINGATTYDSAVGTD
Trent Richardson17502.90

My defense was nearly nonexistent. Impossible to stop the run, no matter what method I did, just could not stop it. Man defense, zone, man and zone blitzes, spies, played as lineman, played as all 3 linebackers, played as safties...could not stop it. One touchdown came off a 80 yard run where CJ Spiller just effortlessly ran around my defense like they were practice cones.

Every pass was thrown to a wide open receiver. EJ Manuel should of been 100% completion rate if not for a dropped pass and two over thrown. My coverage was not there at all. Didn't get his first incompletion until the end of the 3rd quarter where CJ Spiller just dropped a checkdown.
Touchdown came off a 60 yard fade route where my corner was just caught sleeping and got burnt.

Had to completely abandon my run game because I was struggling to keep up with their offense, but from what I was able to get from it it was very smooth, realist blocks and defensive reactions.

Passing game wasn't easy but also wasn't too hard, not sure if it was because I was the Colts with Luck against Buffalo's secondary. Had some wide open receivers that shouldn't of been, and some completely locked down. Some throws that should of been picked but were not. Definitely need to be smart where you throw it and know when to scramble out or just throw it away. My biggest rush of the game came from an Andrew Luck scramble for 23 yards.

Had a lot of injuries, 6 to be exact, none were serious, but just an annoyance. My injury slider is at 72 so I'll drop it and see how it plays out from there.

Weird thing happening with the roughing the passer penalty too. On deep throws after the ball was thrown and caught a defensive lineman would get blocked into the QB hardly touching him causing the QB to drop to the ground drawing a roughing the passer flag. Had this happen while I was on offense and on defense.

This was only my first game with your sliders, so far I liked them. Game played very smooth and was much better than my last time playing. Hoping the defensive problems were just flukes. Gonna try a couple more and see how they pan out.

Also, what are your settings for game speed, ball hawk, strafe assist heat seeker and switch assist? I usually play very slow, and all options off, curious maybe this is why I had problems.

I hear ya, and read that yeah I just needed to get that off my chest.

Love these sliders, but I think there just to easy for me.

I can run easily, my passing game is on point and the CPU though they average 80% passing, and can most times run ok to great. Cant score points.

Makes me feel good to come away 31 to 3 victory, or 31 to 21 because I keep giving the ball back after running the clock lol.

Other then that, your sliders feel like the most realistic set Ive used so far.

Re: The most important 2 sliders.

Started a new franchise, randomly picked the falcons to test the sliders. Also have an idea about the sacks I speak of, not sure how effective it would be and also, already had the week 2 video where I sacked the bengals 3 times, so again, multiple games with all sets are suggested.



will reply to some posts after I make tacos, apologies, long day.

sorry I missed this before, I press down once at the beginning of the game (don't know what it's called)

normal game speed, default ball hawk, strafe assist off (you can just hold L2), switch assist on. Your next game will undoubtedly look different, I never have the same types of games back to back

I move around a LOT and try to make things happen, so maybe if you have problems passing- since the coverage is usually tight at the beginning of the play, you could move around. I would never employ that strategy with Alex Smith, too hard to complete passes with that guy. Also when I moved up threshold to try for a few games- I had a fast team so I was getting more yards while the CPU was getting less, since my offense and defense were that much faster than the CPU, the only way for them to get seperation was lower it back to 41, not saying you should, just what happened to me.

Re: The most important 2 sliders.

Rushin, is it proven that a lower value for pass reaction makes DBs stick closer to receivers (being reversed), or does a lower value create more separation?

I have no problems passing. I'm trying to make it harder for me. I have put my own slider combination in, but haven't had a chance to test them. Watching my Royals try and steal this division!
