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



Here's ARod taking off on me four times for 39 yards. I left the recording to go to the play screen on a few of them to show they were in fact scrambles and not QB draws. I especially liked the one where he darted straight up the middle while I was in man on the FB.

This can change the way you approach your defense. In this case it didn't because the game wasn't close, but if you have to account for this in a close game it changes everything. It's the reason a spy exists, and that was never needed in M18 (or in the last few Maddens) because the CPU would rarely run with the quarterback. That's why it was so important that EA fix this part of the game, and they appear to have done it very well.

Playing all Madden sim right now with sliders, 15 min qtrs

Last game I lost 19-2...didnt score an offensive point.

This game I won 62-3 against the bills, I was the seahawks.. Forced 8 turnovers including 3 pick six's.

I really like how it's playing right now.. I had lost several in a row before this odd blowout game.

PS, I played as Dion Jordan to spy Tyrod Taylor the whole game.. He still had 48 rush yards at half on scrambles. I hope they don't change anything with how the CPU QB is a threat to run now.

Looks like I need to add back all of the spy plays I removed from my defensive playbook to try and clean things up a bit in the playcalling screen

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

So yeah, this is like playing a different game. Playing the Panthers now and Cam has taken off three times and it's in the second quarter.

Last game Dak took of on me like 4-5 times. QB's are getting back further in the pocket and not just waiting to get sacked.

Obviously a very small sample size, but positive things so far.

Please, no. Don't even mention it. It's not like Tom Brady is going to run for 200 yards on you... You played against 1 of like 3 QB'S that can run as good as they throw.

I'd rather have the scrambling stay EXACTLY how it is now, and let us adjust our gamelan just how it has to adjust in real life for dual threat QB's.

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

I'm just so impressed with how well the QB movement and scrambling has been done from a situational logic standpoint as well as animation. The transitions from pocket passing setup, to scramble, to a throw on the run happen so smoothly and look so good.

This is the new benchmark for QB movement, and if it ever reverts back we'll point to this patch.
