If not that, he would help out in coverage. I just don't understand how they don't see that happen and don't address it. It's been in the game for years. This clip was only a couple of minutes and I saw it twice.

EDIT: if you look at the 31 second mark, the corner and MLB are standing still. Graphics look really nice.
Honestly not really worried about that kind of stuff.

Just want it to play a good game and defensive coverage was always a big aspect of the game that discouraged me.

Really don't care much if they are flat footed or not.



I'm not diminishing it or saying that you shouldn't care about it, just that I personally don't.

Very impressed by what I've just watched. This game is going to be awesome.

Yeah, I understand, it just takes away from the immersion factor for me. It also is frustrating because that's not what I would expect my defenders to be doing when I put them in zone coverage. I hope they are aware of this and can fix it at some point soon.

It looks like playing defense will be more fun, but I'm also intrigued about how this will affect playing offense. It looks if you combine the new defensive mechanics with the increased inaccurate throws, the game should be much more realistic. All of this hinges on A.I. of course.

Mixed baggage.
I'm sorry but how in the world did the browns play look awkward? That was a perfect swat.

  • Defenses are now smarter when it comes to going for a swat vs. an interception or a tackle. This improved logic will be broken down by individual player traits.
  • Zone coverage ratings now have a much bigger impact on how quickly defenders break on throws.
  • Defenders with higher ratings in Zone Coverage will react much quicker to throws, often times before the ball is thrown.
  • Improvements have also been made to zone defenders responsible for the flats.
  • Look for smarter principles, head tracking on all players, increases in press and chuck interactions between DBs and wide receivers, as well as improved pursuit and tackling abilities.
  • Man Coverage ratings have also been tweaked to impact how much separation receivers are able to get on cuts in their routes, resulting in improved behavior of the defensive backs.
  • Also new to Madden 15 is the addition of disguised defenses, where opposing secondaries will show you one coverage but give another.
  • Madden NFL 15 represents the most fun and engaging defensive gameplay in franchise history.

Most of that sounds good overall, but the bolded bullet point has me confused. They react to throws before there are throws? I'm guessing this is just a wording thing and they aren't advertising psychic DBs as a feature now...lol.

I'm wondering if they are trying to simulate a DB reading the QB's eyes, at least that is how I took it.

That line had me scratching my head as well.

Heh...I did a double take when I saw who responded to that CB. Welcome back! (I don't post that often anymore, so my apologies if I'm behind the curve on you reemergence).

Anyway, you may be right...although I'm hesitant to trust Madden AI with such concepts. As long as it all works without being cheap though, I guess it doesn't matter much. We'll see.
