The first game of the season was a great game, actually, and Wilson looked close to real life Wilson in that game, even (before this patch), and he beat me on the last play of the game with a 20 yard TD pass as time expired.

So, now Iím playing them in the nfc title game with this new patch. HOLY CRAP!! Lol. Seriously, Wilson was ready to run. I️ donít have the stats in front of me, but he had 50 yards rushing, easy, and made some serious jukes a few times, lol. Occasionally, Iíd say he ran too soon, but thatís better than what the game has been so far, so thatís ok. This game went down to the wire as well, actually. I️ went down 20 in the first half with 3 ints. And, Wilson had 3 TD passes in that time. I️ came back in the 2nd half, fought like hell, but Wilson beat me, again. Specifically, Wilson. His scrambling helped them A LOT. Picking up a few first downs on 3rd down with his feet. I️ lost 45-42. Their D was prob the bigger story of the game (even though they gave up 42, it was a tough game). But, AFAIC, Wilson absolutely looked like Wilson and his scrambling was much different from anything Iíve seen in M18 up to this point.

Only 1 game, but it happened to be against a mobile QB in a title game, so I️ think it was a good benchmark. I️ play all-pro default sliders, fyi.

Yeah, I started my Packers CFM, so 1st game of the season was against Wilson.
He killed me with his legs...2 rushing touchdowns. I lost 17-13, throwing a late pick in the red zone. He rushed 10 times for about 54 yards. 6 were designed runs, 4 were avoiding pressure. I ended up with 4 sacks, bit 0 were from statue QB.
DEFINITELY like playing a different game.
Most of you know how critical I've been of Madden, so I am eating some crow by saying this.
Is it perfect? Nope.
However, in the games I tested the patch in, and my first CFM game, I have to say these were the best games of Madden I have EVER played.
Now, if I can tune my penalty sliders a bit, and EA can beef up presentation and CFM in 19, we may finally have something here.
So, GOOD JOB EA. Words I never thought I'd hear myself say.

Re: New Madden NFL 18 Title Update Available Now - Patch Notes Here

Others have already articulated an impression that struck me after playing a whole bunch of games post-patch. It feels like a completely different game in a good way.

I️ shouldíve captured some clips of that sea game, but didnít think to. I️ captured a few big plays from Freeman, but none from Wilson. Hereís a snapshot for proof of Wilsonís running, however. Lol. 15 for 110. Pretty sure theyíre going to have to nerf running QBs, soon. . But, in all seriousness, that one game was solid. In the pre-patch game (I️ also lost) against sea, Wilson did NOT run all over the place. This feels like a pretty fair comparison. And, just overall, I️ enjoyed the gameplay a lot. Iím pretty happy where the gameplay is right now. Again, all-pro default, also. No messing with sliders, and I️ get enough of a challenge. I️ went 15-1, of course, but I️ had some fun close games in that mix. But, if cpu QBs start playing better with this patch, M18 is worth getting at this point. And, if u have Xbox x, itís even better/smoother.



Hereís a big Freeman run

Is there any way to include injuries on All-Pro Competitive? Iím playing with the slider up to 80 and havenít seen one.
