I really think this team is heading in the right direction and I am pretty excited to get this game. However, there seems to be a ton of one on one tackles. Do you guys feel that way as well? Actually, I would say it is very rare to see one on one tackles in a real football game. Usually someone is assisting with the tackle or pilling on or something. Just curious if you guys this this takes away any realism to what seems to be a really good looking game.

Thanks,
Blitz

I agree

A decent convo on tackling in the game is happening here as well

Just about every tackle I see is one person making it. I've been away from Madden since 10 and I would say this does appear to look better when gang tackles happen, but they just don't happen enough.

Also, not to hijack your thread, but are there ever any runs after the catch? I watched the Broncos v Chargers and can't remember seeing one at all.

I'm a bit concerned with the tackling. 2 different styles x/a sq/x and a hit stick. While I am no opposed to 2 different tackling buttons X/A are how you switch defenders in the past so I'm a bit worried I'll be diving on the ground instead of switching players. But the same transition was made in madden 05 to 06 with O being thee sprint button on d then then switch X being the sprint so I know I will adjust but I just wasn't planning on having too

Tackling still has a long way to go but is the tackling in the latest build of this game is way better than what was shown at E3. Theirs still rarely any gang tackling but at least defenders are not standing around as much while their teammates make a tackle, now the at least dive towards or fall over the ball carrier.

Gang Tackling needs to be improved IMO. One player begins to tackle the ball carrier but then any other Defenders don't actually seem to realistically engage with assisting the tackle. They just run into them.
