Angry wind direction issue

Is it me, or is the wind direction all screwed up again when playing an online match ?

Seems like it's blowing opposite to what is says AGAIN !!

Not sure how an easily seen issue like this gets by all the testers AGAIN !!

This is a total game killer to what is definitely an improved game overall

Re: wind direction issue

Pretty sure it was Madden 16 that had this issue as well until it was
eventually patched and fixed half way through the season

I think it's totally unacceptable that this has happened twice

Has made FG & punting very frustrating, especially where it's already
a little harder to do both of them this year

Re: wind direction issue

Yes the wind arrow glitch is back. It points the opposite direction it should.

It was present from M12 through M15. They FINALLY fixed it in Madden 16.

Now suddenly, it is back in M17. That such an obvious and apparent glitch made it through QA for 3 years and then re-appeared after finally being fixed is baffling. It does not say much about EA's QA process.

I've gotten so used to it pointing in the opposite direction over the years, so I just adjust for it. The CPU however aims in the DIRECT OPPOSITE direction of where they should. It's pretty lol'sy

You're not crazy though, I'm sorry to say the glitch is back.

Re: wind direction issue

Thanks IcedCoffee as I drink an DD Ice coffee

Surprised more Madden gamers are not in an uproar about this

This issue is just unacceptable IMO, especially where it's happened
before and where there has already been a patch released and still
no fix for this

Hopefully a rep from EA will be able to explain how an issue like
this continues to happen

We should not have to figure out what the football is going to
do when it's going to move opposite the wind
