Do we not need to turn on Illegal Man Downfield at the beginning of games anymore? Donít think I saw anything in the OP about it anymore. Thanks

The thought of re-installing the game had occurred to me. But knowing that it can be problematic for many to re-download a fairly large game, I try avoid making suggestions like this until many other options have been exhausted.

Now, I have a really good internet connection, so I decided to play the role of guinea pig. I will say this....it definitely helped to clean-up a lot of the wonky warping and glitchy animations. It doesn't "change" the gameplay but it does clean-up those artifacts. If anyone is still having issues with glitchy play and/or warping, uninstalling and then re-downloading the game may be of benefit (it is not a requirement).

==================================================

Now, sliders....

Before I did the uninstall, I took the OP and changed the CFM injury slider to 40 (which is the default) . So yes, that means running a 100% fully default setup. Can I just say...wow. It played really, really well. It animated well, the CPU moved the ball well, my crummy Dolphins struggled (more than I have ever struggled to move the ball on M20 - but it wasn't unreasonable given the ratings). We had multiple injuries, 10 total penalties (with a variety)...it was really solid. Watch the Dolphins game from my last Twitch stream and you'll see what I mean (it is archived). I played a different matchup off-stream and it was the same quality of gameplay, but the dynamics played-out differently (due to the different matchups/ratings).

For the first time ever....I'm fully endorsing a 100% default (with the obvious exception of quarter length) setup. Don't poo-poo it....give it a shot....most people say they "play on default" and then when you dig further, they say "yes, 100% default, except I just changed _____, ______, and ______"). Seriously....give this a shot for a couple of games (I think many of you will thank me - and others will just say to plug-in Matt's sliders ).

I basically went from hating this patch to loving it.....it plays such a nicely balanced game....and no reinstall is needed!

I'm adding this to the OP....but wait, there's more....



After I reinstalled the game, I plugged these in as well. Ya know....this wasn't bad either. Totally different 'feel' but one that I think a lot of people will like. The reason I shied away from these is because I never quite 'feared' the CPU offense because coverage was so tight (but rather it came down to if I beat myself)....but I will need to try these out a bit more on this patch to see how it goes (personally, I have a hunch I will stick with default, but I have no qualms posting these on the OP as well - but I am going to test it out a bit more this weekend).
Just do not as we this. Yes overall gameplay is nice on default, except run game just way to wide open? Wish could figure out how to tame user running and boost cpu run game without screwing up other gameplay.

Totally agree. This issue is it throws the CPU way off balance. If I can basically run any personnel I want & not fear the CPU run game, then its very easy to prevent them from scoring points. And on the user side you can just run non-stop & audible into a pass if they stack the box. That's been my biggest issue with all sliders is balancing the run game. The issue is CPU RB AI & it can't be fixed by sliders. On the human side the CPU won't make defensive adjustments to alignment & such, so very easy to run on them no matter who you have at HB

It hasn't been wide open at all from my experience using the default setup EXACTLY as posted on the OP. I've played a few games in my fins franchise and been playing with other various teams in differing matchups this morning. Too many people fall into the trap into playing 1 game and then drawing conclusions based on that. Too many people break off one big run and then think "too easy" and rage quit when the reality is that they caught the CPU on a blitz which opened up the backside....that happens....

Now if a person has the stick skills to string together a crapload of special moves like many of the better MUT players, then that isn't a slider issue, that's a "you should be playing on All Madden" issue.

No, you don't need to worry about it now...EA's game tuning has now accounted for it.

Just encountered something new. Kick meter completely disappeared in my OT game after my kicker got frozen.

K is pretty bad so I figured maybe he was extra frozen, but then later in OT I tried to punt and no kick meter there either.

Never seen that before. Anyone else encountered this bug?
