Madden NFL 18 Controls - WR/DB Mechanics

Rex Dickson, Creative Director for Madden NFL 18, has just posted the WR/DB mechanic controls for the game this year. The image shows Madden NFL 18 Ultimate Team specifically, so we'll have to wait and see if the controls are the same in other gameplay modes.

Check them out and post your thoughts.

All modes.

I gues we can expect new animation and motion from both DB and WR off the line

I don't like this. Just more button combos to press. This type of stuff should be playing out naturally by the players. Like the different catches. In real life a wide receiver doesn't think "hey I need to make an aggressive catch" he just makes and adjustment to the ball and does what he needs to make a catch.

Seems madden is really trying to push that "stick skills" stuff.

See SN promising if this is done by the CPU in context and ratings

Well if the AI is working properly you don't have to press "aggressive catch" or anything just let the cpu make the appropriate decision on its own.

More options in controls should mean more animations and variations, so I welcome this, I'm tired of the 2-5 canned outcomes.

Re: Madden NFL 18 Controls - WR/DB Mechanics

This is for MUT but it clearly shows the direction of not just Madden but the company (EA) as a whole..their CEO said it himself they are moving towards competitive game play period..sad day for dinosaurs like me, who enjoy single player franchise..what the competitive community should be mad about is "scenarios" that read at the bottom..and this has been a Madden problem for years..90% of the time it's not an "instant win instant lose" in football..doesn't matter if it's DB's, WR's, DLine, or Oline..Madden continues to think the best way to show a struggle/battle on the football field, is in a win only lose only scenario.
