Can We Please Get a Wind Toggle

The wind in M17 was horrific and it clearly is no better this year. I'm not sure how wind allows a kicker to routinely hit 60yd FGs but has zero effect on the passing game. If the wind is at your back, 70+ yd punts. In your face, >30 yd punts are routine.

It obvious wind is not implemented correctly. IRL, on the rare occasion wind is impacting the game it is on special teams and the passing game. Special teams could be saved with a simple toggle switch.

Yeah, it's ridiculous. I don't understand how they let something so blatantly awful get through beta testing year after year. It boggles the mind...

Let's face it, their attention to detail may be the worst of any dev group. Every new thing they add, has enough problems to make the game almost unplayable, and the simplest of details is simply ignored, even if it is game alteringly bad! It sucks!

Re: Can We Please Get a Wind Toggle

Yep... I've been asking for this for years, reporting it as a bug in every bug thread, and yet every year, in CFM, there are insane winds in every game. It ruins CFM for me, truthfully, because the games are just so unrealistic. Field position doesn't matter because in one quarter you can bang 80 yard punts in the air, and then in the next, you can't punt more than 30 yards.

Listen I get it if EA can't figure out why wind in CFM is broken, but wind in Play Now or MUT is fine. But just give a toggle to turn off wind completely... Thre's a toggle to activate wind in playnow (Weather: Windy), so why not in CFM?

It's so frustrating.

By season 2 or 3 I'm usually wishing I picked a dome team because then at least 8 of my games each season would be realistic.

In Madden '17 this could be "resolved" by using SuperSim for any special teams plays. It sucks that you had to do this, but at least you'd get mostly realistic results. It was doubly bad because going into M'17 one of their marketing slogans for the game was "Making special teams special again," and then they just somehow completely missed how broken special teams was because of the wind, and so you had to skip all special teams plays to get realistic playing game. But, with Madden 18 you can't even do that, because SuperSim kicking is totally messed up, and kickers miss 1-2 PATs a game and finish with ~50-60% PAT accuracy over a season. It's so bizarre that they broke this element of the game, something that they seemingly didn't touch.

I'm always amused when EA does not make any changes to a mode, like CFM and SuperSim/Play The moments this year, and yet... they introduce bugs to it, like the PAT accuracy issue, even though *the mode did not change*.

The very first video of CFM that was released I looked to see if the wind was still broken, and of course it was. Here's the CPU punter kicking from his own 15 yard line:



ANd here is the result of the punt, which sails to the opposing teams 8 yard line. A punt that travels 77 yards in the air.



Yet 2 drives later, in the next quarter, then the same punter is punting into the wind, the ball does not travel 30 yards in the air.

There is no game in NFL history with wind this strong, and if there was it would be a major storyline of the game, and teams would strategize their drives to be with or against the wind. BUt, in MAdden in CFM, every game is like this. And this bug has been present for 4 years.

Exactly!

I dont want new features or a story mode like longshot when so many multiple year issues are glaring on the surface.

Sadly they could work on flaws only for one year and market those fixed issues as "new features" since they never originally worked proper

Re: Can We Please Get a Wind Toggle

It all just verifies what I've always thought....this game is NOT tested in 1 player mode at all. It's all MUT or H2H...that's why the vast majority of the crazy **** we see normally doesn't appear in those other modes.
It sucks for us offline CFM players, but don't ever expect it to change.
I believe the time is near when there will be no offline single player CFM...I think the reason modes were combined a few years ago was exactly with this in mind. Make single player CFM suck, and slowly try to force people to play MUT or online by making those modes work properly.

Re: Can We Please Get a Wind Toggle

This really needs to be fixed. It's really bad. Ruins the field position game. Makes kicking field goals from 65 yards a piece of cake with the wind behind your back. I don't understand it, man.

I mean I banged a punt 85 yards in a game yesterday. That's just ridiculous.

Wind at my back on my own 6yd line. M.King kicks it to the opponents 10yd line. For me, this is a game breaker and needs to be tuned. The wind is not implemented correctly in CFM. I would just prefer they remove it altogether and try again next year.
