Re: Madden 15 Deep Dive Gameplay Improvements

That was a good read. I liked everything they were talking about in the article. I'm hoping that the CPU utilizes all of those things as well. It looks like field goals will no longer be a guarantee and that your kickers rating will actually matter. Loved the part about the adaptive A.I. hope it works like they say it will. I also liked that the CPU will try to coffin corner punts now I always hated how they used to punt the ball right to the middle of the field.

Re: Madden 15 Deep Dive Gameplay Improvements

While most of that stuff seems to be recycled from the Twitch stream from the other day, there were two bits I liked relative to the kicking game that I don't recall catching during the live feed.

First is the idea that kick power means something. I like that a max power kicker can hit an NFL-record shot while a middling kicker with 80s kick power is going to struggle to hit from 50. That's going to be a game changer, I think.

Just as big is the claim that the CPU will no longer attempt FGs that it has no realistic chance of making. That was a big of a game-breaker strategy-wise in previous games, as the CPU would routinely forfeit the ball near midfield after botched attempts from way too far out.

Re: Madden 15 Deep Dive Gameplay Improvements

A lot of good stuff. I hope there aren't too many kickers that can't kick 50 yard FGs, though, as I'm pretty sure every kicker in the NFL has the leg strength to get it at least that far.

Hopefully with these additions they won't disregard Special Teams for 3+ more years. There's still a LOT more work that needs to be done to it.

Re: Madden 15 Deep Dive Gameplay Improvements

Some nice additions here. These really stuck out to me:

Quote:
Underneath: Puts defenders in a trail type of coverage where they will try and stay underneath the receiver.
Overtop: Defenders will try and stay over the top of their opponent to avoid getting beat deep. The disguised cushion functionality from Madden NFL 25 has been removed.
Outside: Puts defenders in a better position to stop sideline routes, while giving up space in the middle.
Inside: Puts defenders in a better position to stop routes over the middle of the field, while giving up space toward the sideline.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how the trail technique works...BUT I really do hope that there are defensive calls that these techniques are already built into as it seems to already be with the new "QB contain".

Love how they simplified the defensive coverages, adding in disguising and type of coverage from over to under, etc....

Would assume very few and be surprised by anything substantial.
