I agree that the QB AI needs help (it has taken a step back from M16....probably the only area of the game that has regressed). Your observations do jive with what I have been seeing (to a degree) and I appreciate that you posted them. I absolutely take no offense to constructive comments, particularly right after the patch....we NEED that feedback.

As it is with all of the slider threads, I'm now confident that a couple of tweaks will be needed to the OP and I believe I have already made strides to get things re-balanced.
The game is feeling so much better, feel the cpu can beat me again, but I agree the only thing holding game back from being one of the best, is cpu qb decision making.

FWIW, I went back to custom PBs, which are not hard to set up logistically, and which entirely eliminate this problem. On PS4, Sabo has really good ones for offense and Phins-something has good ones for defense. On XBO, Vannwolfhawk has really good ones for O and D, though you need to take some verts out manually.

Doing this helps a ton.

Road I second what TM says..makes huge difference..also defensive side of the ball as well..only issue I have with customs D books..is I can't use on offense any "overloaded" plays..because for some reason the books I created always default to "nickel" plays when I use an overloaded offensive front..

I'm glad this is actually happening! Now players like Donald and Watt can actually be a 1 man wrecking crew lol.

On the subject of Oline vs Dline, keep an eye out for the Olineman completely whiffing on blocks from time to time. Video was posted on the main forum, patch update thread.

I'm really liking title update 1.10 so far.

I may be in the minority, but I actually like to see the whiffs. I have seen it prior to the patch with certain settings....to me, it is like the dlineman getting a good jump.

What I like the best about it, is,
it forces the user to actually have to look for the rush, and have to either step up in the pocket, step left or right, or escape the pocket all together. So it's not a predictable outcome from play to play.
If ratings are driving these whiffs, I'm all for it.
The pocket is much more alive with this update imo

Re: JoshC1977's M17 Sliders

I'm going to just be 100% transparent here.

Barring something truly earth-shattering happening, this will be the last patch I install for M17. I am going to be disabling auto-updates and moving ahead with this patch. I didn't do this last year and a late online-centric patch really jacked things. I feel like EA did a terrific job adding back-in some sim elements that were badly needed....I refuse to lose them.

What this means is that this will be the last patch that I will be doing slider adjustments for (again, barring the introduction of a much better patch...which this late in the cycle, I doubt will happen). I know many of you play both online/offline, but I am strictly an offline player and at some stage, I have to look out for my own desires too.

So, consider this to be fair warning!
