Except there is a fix coming for the QB statue in a upcoming title update, not sure if it's this next one in November or the following title update.

Like my 95 overall CB being 5 yards behind a WR 3 or 4 times in a row.

Or a DT with 68 Block Shedding, 70 or so Power Moves and an overall of 75 or so completely dominate Zach Martin, who is 98 overall.

Not being able to throw a fade. CB's, Safeties, LB's or basically anyone in any kind of coverage standing stock still and letting balls fly right over there heads.

The CPU completing 90% of there passes on a great defense, not great QBs, but guys like Hundley and other sub 70 guys.

They did a little work on blocking, so my 88 overall FB doesnt miss blocks every running play. Just about 50% of the time just runs off into the sunset while Im getting tackled for a loss.

CPU AI giving up 9 sacks to one player, never bringing help over for the tackle or OLineman giving up those sacks.

CPU AI just standing there in the pocket, and getting sacked after 5 to 7 seconds to stand there.

Mobile QBs not running.

I mean the list goes on and on and on. NOW, I will say I do have some games where Im like wow yeah!!

Then one of the above happens, and I just turn my XBone off.
These are a lot of the issues I’m struggling with.
It seems EA has been awfully silent on any gameplay tuning. Anyone hear if they’ll be giving sim a tuner?
I was hoping to hear that man coverage would get some love.

Exactly, maybe the poster hasn't been dealing with this since 2005, but there's no reason to hope at this point. EA is going to do what benefits them, and what benefits them clearly is focusing on MUT and Draft Champions. " But, but, but, the AI !" Why should EA fix the AI ? Would it really benefit them ? Would anybody notice but us ? If they focused on the AI rather than MUT for one cycle would they be met with praise or complaints from the majority of gamers ?

It's all about MUT, Draft Champions, and competitive gameplay now-a-days. Better AI, better animations, and a deeper franchise mode means very little to the majority of gamers out there.

This is how it ought to be...I did the same thing.

Wanted to buy the game...read the reviews before deciding to purchase...found out the issues...knew I would be annoyed with said issues way more than enjoying the game...decided to skip it...now glad I did.

It's hard though...especially when I got my neighbor playing their franchise across the street...maybe I will occupy myself with Glamore Magazine.

Check out the tweet thread, but yes.

Sometimes there is gold in that thread.

Are they really gonna fix it though? That's the question. We have seen them say they are gonna fix something and nothing happens. Even if they do fix it, it shouldn't take them until November to fix a problem that was obvious in August.

I don't have 18 but I hope they do fix it for people. I have 17 and I can never get through a single game of it. I just sit and sim seasons trying to build bad teams up.

It went from investigating it in the middle of October, the next week they said they were heavily looking at it and that was the latest tweet from Clint last week.

Sounds like a progression, but we will see what happens.
