Any new information, possible adjustments to the slider set?

Re: Mike Lowe Madden 17 Sliders

I wanted to see what some others were doing, so I started using Flazko's. They are really good, but might be a bit too easy (and I think the play run off is too fast).

I'll report back once I know more, but I'm thinking of just a more aggressive/dangerous AI that would mix well with his blue sliders.

Re: Mike Lowe Madden 17 Sliders

First post updated. Took a lot of what I liked from Flazko's set, so see how these play out, folks.

If you have time I'd love to hear some feedback on why you settled on your slider set. The problem in our league is regardless of what I do as far slider adjustments go it's still to easy to pass. Were in our 5th season and one user has Manziel (because of injury) who still puts up 300+ a game. I see you have pass reaction at 100. In your opinion does that negate player ratings and just make them psychic?
My sliders:
Fast speed
70 threshold
80 CPU pass coverage
50 CPU pass reaction
8 USER QB acc

I always make adjustments based on stats/results. I also never lock a slider set, as believe reviewing should be an on-going process.

I'd raise speed threshold up (I use 95)
I'm still deciding on pass reaction/coverage, but one should definitely be very high, at the least.

Re: Mike Lowe Madden 17 Sliders

Ok, I went back to a lot of what was working so well previously with this set. Updated quite a bit in the first post, including things like game speed, etc.

Take a look, and let me know what we're seeing.

Re: Mike Lowe Madden 17 Sliders

These are playing beautifully. Only issue I saw were the bad press coverage on a few passes that led to bigger yardage being gained through the air. However, a CB like Josh Norman was able to recover and make a pass breakup defensively.

I am using the Eagles and we best Washington 29-23.

QB Colt McCoy 17/34 304 yards 54% 2 TD 1 INT, sacked 2 times
QB Sam Bradford 23/36 309 yards 63% 3 TD, sacked 4 times

RB Chris Sims III 16 for 42 yards
RB Ryan Mathews 29 for 83 2 BTK
Darren Sproles 10 for 32 1 BTK

Both teams had 2 fumbles, but each QB only fumbled once.

Eagles 61% 3rd downs, Washington 27%.

Even w the bump, still just 4 penalties called all game combined for 60 yards.

38+ mins of possession for Eagles who are now a surprising 4-1. Washington falls to 3-3.

If you have pass coverage set too high, this will be a recurring theme. I still need to find exactly how high you can take the coverage, but I know it's not much over 70. It's odd, with each new update, that number changes.
