Matt10's Madden 21 Sliders

Matt10's Madden 21 Sliders

Focus of the Sliders: Gameplay customization is essential in any sports game, especially now with the emergence of Esports and lootboxes, etc. Like a lot of slider enthusiasts, I'm of an old school nature in trying to bridge the gap of Esports base gameplay to more simulation/realistic. Each year it becomes more difficult, and each year it takes more and more effort to find a proper balance. Which is why I was quite surprised with this year's version of Madden. It has been the closest representation of what I look for in a football game. I could say it's Madden 20.5 as even Madden 20 was pretty close, but just missing some basic elements such as QB's being more active in the pocket and more realistic pass deflections.

As always, I am focused on animations. I've said it before, and not long ago, but animations is the confirmation of logic. Madden's animations are some of the best, but when it's bad...it's really bad. The goal here is to ensure that I'm letting proper animations play out from the contextual library. For example, if a corner is lagging behind on a slant route, I do not want to see him warping to make the play; I'd rather see a dive animation attempting a pass deflection. If the warping happens, I want to find out why and how it can be isolated to ensure it doesn't trigger again.

So, I go through that process of ensuring the games I play have the proper animations playing out. This makes testing take much longer because I have to see the same scenarios multiple times and in different context, such as player fatigue, player ratings and match ups, etc. The good thing is that Madden 21 does a pretty good job, even if it still performs primarily two-man animations, which considering where we are now in video games, you would think physics based gang-tackling would already be here. Overall, though, the game plays really good as a base, and I'll explain my changes, or lack of, in the descriptions.

For those that followed my Madden 21 Sliders , there will be some same concepts, but also some that I haven't explored - or may not feel it's necessary at the time of this post.

=================================
Slider Update Log - VERSION 10 (Post 1.14)
=================================

10/17/2020: I haven't seen any issues with the current set and the update. For every time an animation seems like it could go bad, it manages to recover correctly. As always I'll look into things if they seem off.

Also, if you've done it, I'd ask to not please post your sliders in my thread.

9/30/2020: A good day of feedback overall. It's allowed me to review the Version 9 set. From an animation standpoint, it all checks out nicely. However, there are some areas in the All-Madden set that need attention.

I'm not a stat chaser, never have been, and never will be. I do have issues when coverage breaks down due to buggy animation though. The biggest issue I was seeing was the DBs not reacting to the ball in the air - and instead playing the receiver to catch the ball. This was not very consistent, but when it did happen, the animation was off-putting enough that it needed to be addressed.

I tested multiple QBs with these settings that are in the upper 80's to 90's in their Short-Medium-Throw accuracies, and determined that it would be the receiver catching (WRC) that needed to be lowered to get more reactions and tackling deflections to occur more often. Now, because the WRC is lowered significantly, the QBA needs to go up. If I keep it at 35 QBA with the lower WRC, along with the tight coverage that already happens, there will be big time issues with skewed coverage sacks. In addition, most of you know how I feel about lowering QBA in the first place, so if I have the opportunity to raise it - I will. The QB is the general on the field, and the quality (and variety) of the offense rests with him. I also dislike the idea of a really low QBA not able to throw for more than 40 yards. A higher QBA will be better quality, naturally, but I also believe it gives more opportunity to take chances.

After those changes, the natural response is increase coverage and reaction to make up for not only the QBA change, but also the fatigue value - something I had forgotten to do in Version 9.

QB Accuracy: 45/45 || 48/50 (Previous: 40/35 || 48/50)
All Madden || With WRC being lowered quite a bit for the CPU, the balance has to be found in raising QBA so the quality is still there, and the offense can still be a threat. It wouldn't make sense to keep the value low and the WRC value lower as that will just mess with the CPU QB's perception overall.

All Pro || The CPU QB in the AP difficulty needs more confidence in making throws. By default at 50, they still have the chance of varied pass speeds, and I would much rather they try to stay in the game more.
WR Catch: 48/45 || 50/50 (Previous: 50/50 || 50/50)
All Madden || I tested the WRC for the CPU at the lowest of 40, then 42, and found that it was just too many drops, completely skewing defensive stands. At 45, there is a good balance of the type of drops, deflections and aggressive plays on the ball by the defenders.

All Pro || Similar to All-Madden, but the WRC is essential for the AP CPU QB.
Pass Defensive Reaction: 52/50 || 50/50 (Previous: 50/50 || 50/50)
All Madden || I forgot to adjust this for the All-Madden user when adjusting fatigue to 52. It allows the little bit of lag to be made up when the ball is in the air. The WRC value controls a lot more than PDR or PCV do, but this is still necessary to make it all come together.

All Pro || No changes.
Pass Coverage: 52/50 || 50/50 (Previous: 50/50 || 50/50)
All Madden || Same as PDR, but more so to keep the players just a tad closer in certain man coverages. I felt that even adjusting coverages there was a bit freezing that was costing inches - which turned into big gains. Still happens on occasion because it's Madden, but not as bad as before.

All Pro || No changes.
Lastly, I wanted to thank you all for the discussion brewing today. As I said, if there is something off the mark, I will gladly review. I think this version 10 is in a good spot as it takes the good of Version 9, and allows the defense to breathe in a more realistic fashion. Enjoy Version 10!


If you provide feedback, please advise of any modifications you have done from this OP set. Please also let me know if you are using All-Madden or All-Pro set. Lastly, you can either import into franchise, or manually adjust. The sync of previous Maddens does not seem necessary this year. I've tested both and have not seen anything outstanding that has de-synced the experience.




Version 10 - Game Settings
Ways to play:

User v CPU - Traditional game style
User v User - Traditional game style
CPU v CPU - Simmed > slow > end of game
Coach Mode - Snap only, auto throw "On", only select DL on defense & leave controller alone
Skill Level: All-Madden || All-Pro
I list it this way because I test on AM first, then All-Pro. Most of the time, I'm able to make some subtle changes to the AM set to be more balanced for AP as a result. This allows me to keep the core of the slider set intact through the two skill levels.

Rosters: EA Default (Active or Preseason)

Auto-subs: Default

Game Style: Simulation

Quarter Length: 10 minutes
I wanted to bump the minutes here to get more NFL type numbers, from plays, yards, scores, etc. At times I also felt like long drives just chewed up so much clock, and it'd be a maximum of a single possession for one team or the other. This slight bump should help a bit more.
Accelerated Clock: 20 seconds
Mainly personal preference, but I'm happy that I can do it, is going from 10 minutes to 10 minutes with a 20 second accelerated clock. I feel like the stats were getting just a bit much on 10 minutes "flat", but with the acc clock, it just gets it perfect for me. The nice thing is that the audibles and adjustments by the CPU are still there, which was one of my biggest concerns.
Superstar Abilities: User Preference
I'm not seeing too much arcade-like gameplay with this on. Either way, it's user preference, but I have tested both and am personally keeping the abilities on.
Gameplay Helpers

Mainly default On

Defensive Ball Hawk: On

Defensive Heat Seeker Assist: On

Defensive Switch Assist: On

Game Options

Injuries: 15
I love injuries this year, but it does seem like there are a bit too many on 10/25 (MM/Franchise) set ups.
Fatigue: 52
I've called myself naive in thinking I could use this value throughout a couple of sets. However, this time around I've used it as an anchor to affect the gameplay in my favor. I tested a lot at 60 because that is usually the threshold in which the difference can truly be seen. I believe it's the highest value that starts showing the indifferent performances. What would happen is that on 60, the QB would be fine, but the defending players would allow easy receptions, and even freeze more often to allow for those completions. Once I lowered it back to 50, now the issue came up where the QB wouldn't try and just take sacks or dump off passes. This told me that the coverage was too good - and whatever separation there had been initially, it was quickly closed down to the point the defenders were on top of the intended receivers. So I scaled until I found the best balance in which the QB would still try a variety of throws and targets, while the defenders still gave their all in try to break up plays.
Speed Disparity Scale: 58
I reviewed this value in V9 quite a bit. I went as low as 25 where the coverage surprisingly will get good - but when it gets bad, the space is enormous. It results in needing to adjust the dreaded PCV and PDR heavily, and I've been there with too many side effects to isolate. As a result, I stayed as true as I could with the solid threshold at 58. It is high enough that the run game, despite other values (such as low RBL) can still be a threat, while still keeping attention in the pass coverage. Players can still get behind the secondary for big plays as well.
Player/CPU Skill Settings

*Community PS4 file: "Matt10V10" (pending, tbd)

Key: All-Madden || All-Pro
I may use some references to previous Madden iterations and my theories behind gameplay values, so some of this may not make a lot of sense if you haven't taken part in my slider approach before.

QB Accuracy: 45/45 || 48/50 (Previous: 40/35 || 48/50)
All Madden || With WRC being lowered quite a bit for the CPU, the balance has to be found in raising QBA so the quality is still there, and the offense can still be a threat. It wouldn't make sense to keep the value low and the WRC value lower as that will just mess with the CPU QB's perception overall.

All Pro || The CPU QB in the AP difficulty needs more confidence in making throws. By default at 50, they still have the chance of varied pass speeds, and I would much rather they try to stay in the game more.
Pass Blocking: 48/48 || 50/50
All Madden || When I had the value at 45 for the CPU, the QB started to put less faith in their OL, basically choosing to scramble immediately or dropping back more and more until they couldn't any longer. The animation here is always when it's a deep route, such as 4-verts, and the CPU QB chooses to keep dropping back or stands still (QB Statue) while waiting for a receiver to come back after already streaking upfield. With a very subtle adjustment to 48, they've now got just a bit more time to make a decision, but not so much that they choose to stay in the pocket forever.

All Pro || With AP it's the opposite where if you give the CPU QB too much PBL, they take too long to decide and end up waiting on those receivers to come back on long routes again. Technically you could make the CPU QB throw quicker at a lower PBL, but the issue is the user DL is quite overpowering under 50, that it would just result in unrealistic sacks or pressure.
WR Catch: 48/45 || 50/50 (Previous: 50/50 || 50/50)
All Madden || I tested the WRC for the CPU at the lowest of 40, then 42, and found that it was just too many drops, completely skewing defensive stands. At 45, there is a good balance of the type of drops, deflections and aggressive plays on the ball by the defenders.

All Pro || Similar to All-Madden, but the WRC is essential for the AP CPU QB.
Run Blocking: 44/44 || 30/55
All Madden || One of my biggest issues with the game has been the OL/DL interaction. The DL and LBs stopped shedding blocks and started to just let the OL push upfield immediately. I wanted to get the defenders in the backfield more often, but not to the point that the OL is clueless. At a higher threshold, this is difficult because the separation of bodies (OL/DL) is not as automatic as it would be on lower values. As a result, I had to not only adjust the RBL values, but also the Offside/False Start/Holding penalty sliders, which is explained in that section.

All Pro || The main adjustment here is for the user. No matter what, the user OL is oustanding. They hit their blocks and move right on upfield. The push is enormous, and it really does not seem to matter what ratings are in play. As a result, I had to lower the user's RBL significantly, and keep mind with the adjustment in Offside/False Start/Holding penalties to get a bit more block shedding.
Fumbles: 52/52 || 55/55
All Madden || There's going to be more tackles, more action in general, the ball will come loose, so I've raised fumbles just slightly.

All Pro || No change, still feel it's in a good spot.
Pass Defensive Reaction: 52/50 || 50/50 (Previous: 50/50 || 50/50)
All Madden || I forgot to adjust this for the All-Madden user when adjusting fatigue to 52. It allows the little bit of lag to be made up when the ball is in the air. The WRC value controls a lot more than PDR or PCV do, but this is still necessary to make it all come together.

All Pro || No changes.
Interceptions: 25/25 || 35/35
All Madden || No changes as there is a good balance of brick hands and interceptions.

All Pro || No changes as there is a good balance of brick hands and interceptions.

Pass Coverage: 52/50 || 50/50 (Previous: 50/50 || 50/50)
All Madden || Same as PDR, but more so to keep the players just a tad closer in certain man coverages. I felt that even adjusting coverages there was a bit freezing that was costing inches - which turned into big gains. Still happens on occasion because it's Madden, but not as bad as before.

All Pro || No changes.
Tackling: 44/48 || 40/58
All Madden || No change. Still in a good spot

All Pro || Just a small bump for the CPU TAK to improve their pursuit angles.
Special Teams

FG Power: 70/70
Another year of devs not addressing the oomph! of how kickers kick the ball. As a former kick myself, it's all about height - and the only way to get decent height in this game (ball above midpoint of posts) is to raise power.
FG Accuracy: 40/40
Received feedback that kicks were going sideways. Personally haven't seen it, but safe bet to just raise the value.
Punt Power: 55/55
Raised this value because the CPU tends to not call a fair catch, even if there's no room to run after. As a result, just wanted to give them more space to either call early or run after.
Punt Accuracy: 45/45
With the bump in power, just had to balance by reducing the accuracy.
Kickoff Power: 52/52
A bump here to get more kicks out of the endzone.
Penalties

Penalties do affect gameplay. As we have moved through each title update, the importance of having them modified has grown. In particular Version 9 where I've had to force the DL to shed blocks and get some sense of urgency more.

All penalties/On default except:

Offside: 70
This is a value I did not expect to need in Madden 21, but here we are. This value must be paired up with the False Start and Holding as the entire composition of these 3 values creates the shed block animations to appear sooner. This is how the OL/DL interaction will be much more dynamic and less "head-on" by the OL pushing the DL backwards.
False Start: 70

Holding: 65
No changes, other than now being accompanied by Offside and False Start.
Roughing the Kicker: Off
Still happens in the title update. Simply just needed to turn it off because it gets called to often. The animation of walking into the kicker results in the kicker falling down easily.
Illegal Contact: Off
Still strong enough value that it creates that resistance at the start of routes to make a difference. In so many coverage issues that Madden has, they happen in the first yard of the DB/WR interaction, so this ensures just a bit more attention to that.

Each year it becomes more difficult, and each year it takes more and more effort to find a proper balance. Which is why I was quite surprised with this year's version of Madden. It has been the closest representation of what I look for in a football game. I could say it's Madden 20.5 as even Madden 20 was pretty close, but just missing some basic elements such as QB's being more active in the pocket and more realistic pass deflections.

As always, I am focused on animations. I've said it before, and not long ago, but animations is the confirmation of logic. Madden's animations are some of the best, but when it's bad...it's really bad. The goal here is to ensure that I'm letting proper animations play out from the contextual library. For example, if a corner is lagging behind on a slant route, I do not want to see him warping to make the play; I'd rather see a dive animation attempting a pass deflection. If the warping happens, I want to find out why and how it can be isolated to ensure it doesn't trigger again.

So, I go through that process of ensuring the games I play have the proper animations playing out. This makes testing take much longer because I have to see the same scenarios multiple times and in different context, such as player fatigue, player ratings and match ups, etc. The good thing is that Madden 21 does a pretty good job, even if it still performs primarily two-man animations, which considering where we are now in video games, you would think physics based gang-tackling would already be here. Overall, though, the game plays really good as a base, and I'll explain my changes, or lack of, in the descriptions.

For those that followed my Madden 21 Sliders , there will be some same concepts, but also some that I haven't explored - or may not feel it's necessary at the time of this post.

=================================
Slider Update Log - VERSION 1
=================================
8/30/2020: Okay, first version coming right up. I've logged about 35 hours on the PC version since Early Access, and of course it's just been slider testing. As always, I have tested every value to the limit and understood the Madden 21 game a lot better. I will say it's similar to Madden 20, but is much more polished.

The main focus was to establish the base gameplay on default values. I wanted to see where the shortcomings were, and what type of animations did not seem to be correct - and how consistent this occurred.

The next part was to isolate animations and figure out workarounds. For example, the soft cushion animation is a big bug because it results in the defender to spin briefly and/or jogging in place, thus losing complete momentum in following the route.

Video here:





Of the 35 hours total I've had the game, about 10 hours were geared in removing/reducing those animations. These animations cannot be removed. There is no workaround to remove them, only to accept them and set up the slider set to be in position to ensure its impact is minimal.

With that in mind, the base of any Madden slider set is threshold. I had to find the best one that could not only minimize the effect of the soft cushion animation, but also keep animations smooth, while still ensuring difficulty was on point. For this, I raised threshold from 50 to 60. The fear of raising threshold at anytime is breakaway speed. Can the players' true speed be seen and felt? Will there be the problem of D-linemen chasing down running backs?

Video:





As a result of finding the threshold, it was just about determining which values needed adjusting. What may be a surprising change from those who have followed my previous sliders is that the penalties are moderately changed. The goal was honestly to just produce the penalties more, except for one value, which is Roughing the Passer (RTP). RTP is something I've used in the past in which it acts as an aggression tool for the defenders in the run and pass. I've explained more in its designated section below.

Overall, quite impressed with M21. Definitely some room for improvement. Yes, slider values seem closer to default, but I have threshold playing the anchor role with some other adjustments to further compliment it.

Enjoy Version 1. Hopefully the first of not so many...


If you provide feedback, please advise of any modifications you have done from this OP set. Also note, you can either import into franchise, or manually adjust. The sync of previous Maddens does not seem necessary this year. I've tested both and have not seen anything outstanding that has de-synced the experience.





Version 1 - Game Settings

Skill Level: All-Madden || All-Pro
I list it this way because I test on AM first, then All-Pro. Most of the time, I'm able to make some subtle changes to the AM set to be more balanced for AP as a result. This allows me to keep the core of the slider set intact through the two skill levels.

Rosters: EA Default (Active or Preseason)

Auto-subs: Default

Game Style: Simulation

Quarter Length: 9 minutes
I want to ensure there is enough plays in the game. This should get an average of about 60-65 total. Raise it higher if you'd like though.

Accelerated Clock: Off
This value is off because I want to take advantage of experiencing the CPU QB audible, not to mention give myself more pre-snap reads. I think the QBs this year have such depth to their play, that it would only make sense to give them more time as well.

Superstar Abilities: User Preference
I'm not seeing too much arcade-like gameplay with this on. Eitherway, it's user preference, but I have tested both and am personally keeping the abilities on.

Gameplay Helpers

Mainly default On

Defensive Auto Strafe: Off

Defensive Ball Hawk: On

Defensive Heat Seeker Assist: On

Defensive Switch Assist: On

Game Options

Injuries: 15
I love injuries this year, but it does seem like there are a bit too many on 10/25 (MM/Franchise) set ups.

Fatigue: 70
There is a certain threshold in which fatigue doesn't even take place, and when it does, you won't see proper recovery time. If a running back unleashes a 40+yard run, he's most likely going to be subbed out to get some oxygen. I wanted to ensure this happens, but to multiple positions. I check the fatigue presnap and the indicators of stamina drain by OL, receivers, backs and QBs, is a thing of beauty. I think it builds another level of play management as a result.

Speed Disparity Scale: 60
I explained a bit above, but the goal is to tighten the coverage throughout. This will create a ripple effect of other values being able to stay near default because it is a reaction to the different tightness. Passing windows are smaller, gaps close quicker, etc.

Player/CPU Skill Settings

*Community PS4 file: "Matt10V1" (pending, tbd)

[i]Key:[i] All-Madden || All-Pro
I may use some references to previous Madden iterations and my theories behind gameplay values, so some of this may not make a lot of sense if you haven't taken part in my slider approach before.

QB Accuracy: 50/50 || 50/50
There isn't a need to change this value for either All Madden or All Pro because there is just more depth to the QB this year. They scramble, they throw out of sacks, they dump off, they go deep. It's just too much goodness to change.

Pass Blocking: 50/50 || 50/50
I have played around with lowering this value, but against the QBs are dynamic and spend most of the time running backwards too quickly. The push on the line is quite good as is, and when the combination of a higher threshold + RTP + fatigue takes part, it introduces many more elements than just stock strength vs strength matchups. This is why I do not need to adjust the usual Offside-FalseStart-Holding values to make a block shed threshold as I did in previous years. It's that good from the start.

WR Catch: 48/48 || 48/48
I wanted to make this value universal for both AM and AP because the animations that played out were much smoother. At higher values, even at 50, the arcade type of catches come out - especially those in traffic - that just did not make sense. Once or twice every 3 games or so, fine - but not every game. I wanted instant hits on catches to be felt, and a proper animation to play out. I want diving attempts that don't always result in a catch. Sure, you can make AP harder by raising this value for the CPU, but the animations just wouldn't feel balanced enough to validate.

Run Blocking: 50/50 || 50/50
I've played with this value a lot, and determined that it's not necessarily about quality of blocks but more so the speed of the blocks. The second layer of that is the speed of the blocks going upfield. With the threshold at 60, the attempt at the blocks happen as is - but it's the RTP that then plays its role in aggression that can make defenders accountable to their pursuit angles. Again though, fatigue will play its role, and a tired pulling guard may just run into their running back more often than not. In terms of difficulty, I use the tackling value to dictate that.

Fumbles: 50/50 || 50/50
With the way the CPU run game was going, this was an obvious value to look into. Thankfully, the increase in threshold and RTP has helped the CPU runners take more direct routes - but they will still use their OL when needed. In terms of the actual occurrence of fumbles, I'd say there are more factors at play than just this one.

Pass Defensive Reaction: 50/50 || 50/50
No reason to change this away from default because it shows up in the right times, even after the soft cushion animation causes some defensive lag in the routes. Some really great animations this year.

Interceptions: 35/35 || 35/35
The interceptions on 50 were just too frequent. The defenders could catch better than the receivers at times. It was just too consistent, and to me, unrealistic. Get a bit more "brick hands" with this lower value, not to mention the pass deflection animations raised in priority over interception animation.

Pass Coverage: 50/50 || 50/50
I will say, whether this value is 1 or 99, it doesn't matter. Coverage is built into the threshold in my testing. As a result, there's no point in adjusting this value either.

Tackling: 46/48 || 46/52
Tackling is where the AM and AP set start to separate, but not as significant in terms of animations. The good thing is this year the tackling is built to be more realistic looking wrap-ups versus WWE big hits. As a result, the tackle value for AP can be raised to a higher value. I settled on 52 because going higher than that and it seemed there were far too many perfect tackles in open-field, regardless of ratings.

Special Teams

FG Power: 70/70
Another year of devs not addressing the oomph! of how kickers kick the ball. As a former kick myself, it's all about height - and the only way to get decent height in this game (ball above midpoint of posts) is to raise power.

FG Accuracy: 30/40
As a result of increasing power, the accuracy has to be lowered. It's pretty easy to kick in this game, so some added difficulty is welcomed. If I'm really up for a challenge, I like to use the kicking meter as the direction input as well. A late kick will pull, an early one will push.

Example video:



Punt Power: 55/55
Raised this value because the CPU tends to not call a fair catch, even if there's no room to run after. As a result, just wanted to give them more space to either call early or run after.

Punt Accuracy: 45/45
With the bump in power, just had to balance by reducing the accuracy.

Kickoff Power: 52/52
A bump here to get more kicks out of the endzone.

Penalties

Penalties do affect gameplay. In previous Maddens I have had to use a lot of penalties to get certain gameplay aspects down. This year, so far, it's in a better spot and penalties to be used as gameplay adjustments is lessened.

False Start: 55
Just wanted to see more of this penalty being called.

Defensive Pass Interference: 60
Same, I just wanted to see more DPI's called and take advantage of the tighter coverage.

Roughing the Passer: 40
This is used as a tool to raise the aggression of the defenders. Since there is less of a perceived chance to the penalty being called, they choose to be even aggressive on their own. This can be a good or bad thing - it just depends. Good because more pressure on the QB, but maybe bad because poor defensive players can take wrong angles in their pursuit. A proper balancing act. An added reward is that the penalty still gets called.

Roughing the Kicker: Off
Simply just needed to turn it off because it gets called to often. The animation of walking into the kicker results in the kicker falling down easily.

Finally!! I've been checking everyday for your slider thread for Madden 21 lol. I can't wait to try these out. Your sliders for Madden 20 made the game fantastic for me. Can't wait for another amazing year. Thank you for all the work you put in for all of us to enjoy a Madden franchise.

Re: Matt10's Madden 21 Sliders

Played a game with these...not sure if its the FG accuracy slider or not but I missed an extra point and the kick didn't go passed the LOS. I missed a chip shot field goal after getting the meter perfect and the ball went 30 yards to the right of the FG posts. Those were my only 2 kicks, went for it on 4th down and 2 PT conversions the rest of the game.

Everything else seemed to play really well however.

Kinda the same for me also. Three extra point tries, way right, way left, & way right again.
It like my kicker was aiming for the back corner of the end zone each time.
The first on caught me off guard, then I remember reading your reasoning for adjusting FG sliders so on the second attempt I made it a point to get the meter as close to dead on as I could and I had a way left result.

Other than that this is a great slider set. I enjoyed last years version also and appreciate the hard work that you put in to these.
