Increasing the # of penalties

I just recently got Madden 21 for PS4 and have started a new Franchise playing coach mode. Iíve been playing on both pro and all-pro levels, but Iím only getting typically one or two penalties combined for both teams per game. Iíve tried different penalty sliders, including having them all maxed to 99 (except RTP). Iíve also tried setting them in the main menu, then importing into my franchise; and set them at 50 in the main menu, imported then set them to 99 in the Franchise. Nothing has helped. Are others experiencing this problem with so few penalties? Is there anything I can do to increase the number of penalties? I know Madden can be very Ďfickleí and I know a realistic # of penalties arenít Maddenís strong suit, but I was hoping something would help to generate at least more penalties than one or two per game. Can anyone provide any help?

Holding calls will get called more if you have it on 99 and adjust blocking to aggressive

Re: Increasing the # of penalties

Penalties are also driven by player rating of Undisciplined. Most are Normal or Disciplined which means they rarely get penalized.

Re: Increasing the # of penalties

Thanks for the replies. I considered changing blocking aggression, but I can only do it for my team, so that doesnít work trying to keep things fair for both sides. Also, For one game, I did change every player on my team and the team I was playing against one notch down in discipline, e.g. moved disciplined to normal, and normal to undisciplined. This didnít seem to have any affect on # of penalties called. Has anyone else tried this?

I was wondering if there may be some type of Ďtriggerí in the main menu settings that needs to be changed for penalties to be called? Also, would be interested in anyone elseís experience with sliders, ie do you get more penalties maxing out the sliders, or more if you donít?

Especially would be interested in anyone else that plays coach mode to find out what their experience has been.

I like much about how this game plays, but without penalties, it just doesnít simulate real football. Any other help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Increasing the # of penalties

Penalties are non-existent for the most part. Undisciplined OL will false start more often, and Undisciplined DL will be offside more often. Undisciplined CBs will get called for PI more often.

Now, "more often" does not = frequently. It's just more likely that those players who are Undisciplined will get called...if and when that ever happens.

This is a sore point for many gamers. EA pretty much refuses to put in penalties because many gamers think they slow the game down and takes the control out of their hands. Especially those who play in tournaments or competitive mode.

Simple solution - activate for Sim mode and lessen or deactivate for the other two modes. Not sure why they can't, or don't, institute this.

Thanks Capa - When you say ďactivate for Sim mode and lessen or deactivate for the other two modesĒ, Iím not sure what you mean? Exactly, how do you do this?

Re: Increasing the # of penalties

We can't..it's what EA needs to do to satisfy sm based players. Many people have asked them to do this but they have not as of yet. I think part of the reason is they want animations to show the penalty, and they have not mastered that yet. You should be able to replay the down and see the actual penalty committed. They have one for def PI but that's about it.

I guess what you could do is edit rosters and move all disciplined to normal and leave undisciplined as is. A bit of a lengthy process but could work?
