Re: Jarodd21s Madden 16 All-Madden Sliders

A few more notes from my prospective after playing another 6.5 games...

As a recap, I had been using the default blue slider set outside two changes:

1 User catch raised to 50 (from 40)
2 CPU Pass Block raised to 60 (from 50)

As the default roster with the 49ers (I do have Aldon Smith), we played Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Arizona, Green Bay, Baltimore, NY Giants, and Seattle the first 7 weeks. Only significant injury was Aaron Rodgers out for the Packers. I'm only going off memory, as I can't upload screenshots or anything. But some things I noticed:

1 Kaepernick plays like a champ for me. Averaged over 300 yards per game and had like 17 TD, 6 INT. As his ratings are not particularly good, this worries me because I'm thinking to myself "what would happen if I ever got a good quarterback?"

2 I was 4-2, well on my way to 5-2 (I quit the Seattle game by halftime). However, I was not winning those games as I think I "should" have. I was winning the games as if I were New Orleans, winning 38-35 type shoot outs. Again, the 49ers offensive roster is not very strong, which worried me because I am very good at drafting and developing players. I was averaging 35 points per game through week 6. Week 7, I'm playing the Seahawks and somehow I'm up 45-28 at halftime. That's when I stopped because I knew I had to (unfortunately) tweak the sliders and restart my franchise. I know I don't "have" to restart, but I can't stand when everything isn't universal.

3 Even though my defense gave up 30+ points per game, I am fairly happy with that. I'll get better as I upgrade the 49ers average defense, and I play a very aggressive style on defense anyway. I give up a lot of points, but I also rack up a lot of big plays which gives my offense more opportunities with the ball. Still, dropping 45 on Seattle was too much to stomach for me.

With that said, I will now be rolling with the BLACK set with a few tweaks:

1 QB Accuracy raised to 8. I tried the default BLACK set before with accuracy at 5, and I was lucky to get 40% completion. With it at 10, it felt about right but again, I want to make this set in anticipation of eventually having a better quarterback, as Kaepernick has accuracy ratings below 80. I should struggle passing with that type of quarterback. Between lowering the Accuracy slider a bit and dropping the catch rating, hopefully it does the trick.

2 Run Blocking raised to 10. At 0, their DLine was getting too much penetration too quickly. At 15, Mike Davis (74 OVR) was able to get a good 80 yards per game in my pass-happy offense. Again, I want to try and set this up for the future. the 49ers OLine is pretty crappy, so I want to struggle a little more until I get better rated players.

3 Fumbles raised to 10 - simply didn't like how it plays at 0. Kap seemed to fumble every time he scrambled.

4 Kick Accuracy raised to 50 - I'm bad enough at kicking, I don't need the decrease here.

5 Kickoff Power lowered to 60 - Having it at 75 had me kicking it out of the endzone even without maximum power. Phil Dawson has a 92 Kick Power for reference.


Still, your sets are the best on the board, in my humble opinion. I'll let you know how it goes with this set up.

Re: Jarodd21s Madden 16 All-Madden Sliders

In fact, perhaps the BEST way to do this is to get a sample with an elite team like Seattle, and figure out what slider set still gives me the correct challenge while using them. This way, I don't have to project what the sliders should be at for when eventually I build the 49ers into a better-rated team. Meanwhile, those sliders should make my bad team struggle the proper amount.

For the run blocking try it at 5 also. I felt the same way about the D line when it was at 0. At 5, I don't break 100 yards every game, but I have a chance to get out of the backfield.

Fumbles at 0 is frustrating haha. I drafted a mobile QB also. He's very very good I'll have to post his stats. I've been lighting it up with him. But I'm sure he led the league in fumbles all of his years . I really had to invest in my Oline throughout the years

Hey, thanks for the heads up man! I'll use that slider setting instead. I want that challenge running the ball, but having it at 0 was just a no-go for me. I'll try 5 like you said.

Fumbling is definitely frustrating. I think a big part of the problem is your quarterback's fatigue is drained almost instantly when you run one time with him. I certainly don't mind more fumbles per hit against my QB compared to a running back, but it seems like it's a 50/50 chance he fumbles if I don't slide which is way too often. As a side note, has anyone found a sure-fire way to get the QB to slide EVERY time? I know that X (on Xbox) is slide/dive, but I'm curious if there is a distinction, maybe holding RT while pressing X gives a slide, but pressing X without holding RT is dive? Diving is another thing in general that Madden needs to fix. Every time I try and dive for the pylon to score a touchdown and make contact with a defender, I fumble it through the back of the endzone. EVERY time. Or even just in the play of field. If you dive and hit someone, it's a near guaranteed fumble.

I'd opt for an analog click to slide for QB. I've been in inches situations and I'm running to the first down, hit x to slide and whattdayaknow I throw to x and get a illegal forward pass penalty.

That's an option? Never knew that. is it the left or right stick that you click? Does it work every time?

Horrible, rainy game. Mariota had 9! completions. He started 3/15. We had them shut down most of the game, but every now and then, Madden would decide to let their receivers break 6 tackles (happened twice), and they'd turn a 2-yard throw into a 60+ yard TD. We allowed Rice to have a few big runs, but for the most part, we looked decent, but the offense was horrible. Threw a Pick 6 to end the first half, I may need to look into a new backup and even starting QB. Bridgewater is hurt all the time, and my drafted QB I was originally going to use as a backup is almost a fulltime starter. Bad looking game vs a bad team, I don't want to see how things go if we make playoffs. We had a decent run game the entire game, but a lot of drops and very inaccurate throws. If I had to grade the team, Defense would get a B-, Offense would get a D+.
