Kept going with the Vikings CFM and played Atlanta. Matt Ryan was sacked.....wait for it....ONCE (on a beautiful blitz call where the LB wasn't picked up as the O-line was fully enaged)! What was really cool was that there were about 3-4 other occassions where he got the throw off just in time. Ryan was 24-39 (61.5%) for 285 yards with 3 TDs and 1 INT. Now, I blitzed a fair bit and mixed up some man and zone....so this wasn't like I was playing vanilla or anything.

I suspect you will get a couple more sacks against crappier QBs (as in real life) but the fact that a good QB was able to avoid the rush and get rid of the ball well is encouraging. Everything else felt as good as it has been with version 6.

One thing that helps things a bit is to use the hit stick on sack attempts instead of the 'X' button (conservative tackle). I think the range and animation of the conservative tackle really muddies up the QB's ability to at least make a pass attempt.

I'm adjusting the OP to reflect this one change.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
One quick note, I did notice some warping (gcoons asked about this a day or two ago). As a result, I am going to set the main menu to AP to minimize that....but everything else will be set the same.
I hope EA goes back to how it was. This new button system has to be the culprit for high sack numbers and they know it. Theres way too much range as you said. Instead of saying sorry sim gamers we screwed up, they say nothings wrong and try to "tuner" the issue. So many good slider sets out here that would have been enjoyable for months if not for horrendously bad coding on EA's part. I love it that NFL players are starting to say Madden is boring and repetitive the past few years, maybe now EA will listen and finally give us an inspired real sim football game that blows everyone away instead of years and years of small improvements and layered code geared to cater to MUT players (no offense to those guys but i think sim gamers should get some of EAs attention too)

Two games. Zero user sacks. Yeah zero. So awesome to see potential there!


Now for the cons and i have seen this before mixing AP/AM


1) Zero penalties. It felt like they were turned off or to throw out a crazy theory they seemed TOO balanced. Almost makes me wonder if AP/AM "balances" the line and thats why non-controlled user sacks go out the window. Sorry man i come up with crazy ideas because ive never had Madden be so frustrating


2) AI qb, although they did better sensing pressure had terrible decision making. Throwing balls directly at my dbs occasionally and the ones that werent picked hit them right on the helmet. The worst was a slant play that pulled most of my defense to the left side of the field and Glennon threw a no pressure floater dead on to Grimes all alone on the right side lol. To be fair overall the AI did seem like they were better at sustaining/finishing drives when the qb didnt make those obviously scripted throws


3)BOTH games Tannehill AND Moore were knocked out with the first hit they took with long lasting injuries. Found this interesting i think its definitely tied to the AP/AM mix somehow or at least makes injuries "work" more.

4) I saw repetitive pinballing/spin out moves by the AI run game after contact. Not sure if thats a con but it felt scripted and repetitive. Also seemed like both me and the AI ran easier. I dont want to put that on AP/AM that could be me. Not enough testing to be sure.


I like the smoothness of gameplay with AP in the main menu but some things definitely seem a bit "off". It feels like im getting help especially when the qb is practically handing me picks. Im going to try AM in both with RTP at 50 to be sure thats the issue i just wanted to do my part and relay what im seeing.


It feels so close yet so far lol. I have to laugh and keep plugging or ill give up on this game for sure
My one game with just the 1 sack on Ryan was a "pure" All Madden set. Interesting observations about the AP/AM mix though. Maybe I will stay away from that after all.

Done playing Madden for the day. Getting sucked back into Mass Effect 2 and I also want to play some serious NCAA 14 (you know, a football game that plays beautifully) this weekend before the workweek starts again.

I love the effect these sliders have had on my own passing game and rushing game, and run defense seems about right. But I'm now lost on how to get these CPU's to get these 200-300 yard games I see people above talking about
Are you using the defensive camera per chance? If so, go to standard on defense....I find it is harder to get those moves rolling on that camera setting.

I may just pick that NCAA up. Such a bummer they discontinued it it went hand in hand with Madden especially with a player career. Im going to try a couple games tonight on pure AM then take a breather. Getting The Order 1886 and Dying Light this week. A change of game scenery is much needed my friend

If you enjoy college football....you'll love it. With the community slider set, some awesome rosters, and an offline roster editor; it is terrific.

I love it. Michigan fan here. Picked it up every year until they announced it was done. I didnt get that or Madden 25 for Ps4 knowing it was a transition year and basically the ps3 version with a shiny coat of paint.

Lol back in the early NCAA days i would hit the local library and print out each individual team roster and edit them manually. Talk about painstaking in the time it took me to edit roster names for over 5000 players from July to August it would be time for Madden to come out.

I did this for years until community downloads came out lol. Before sacks nothing was worse than seeing players listed as QB #4, WR #88, RB #34

Re: JoshC1977s M15 Set

A couple of questions:

If I am not very good at Madden, which set would you recommend? Can you still use the AP one, or will I need to use the latest one?

What is the verdict on setting sliders/settings in the menu and importing them? What am I supposed to do?
