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

Love all the improvements, I wish they would fix the QB being too far away from the center, he should be right up close under center. I remember them fixing that last year, surprising it was back that way this year.

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

I played a test CFM game with Falcons vs Bears. Gameplay definitely fun again.
All Pro default - 9 min qrts.

Game seemed a bit offensive, I had 30 points by halftime. Bears had 10. I think issue is turnovers seems rampant. I forced 3 fumbles on big hits and 2 INT. Of course larger sample needed, might need to tone down fumbles and INT with sliders if trend continues.

These all look like excellent changes in CFM. I'm glad they are on top of this. The ball spot issue on turnovers from challenge/booth review was an annoying one. Often a team would be face a long 1st and whatever because of the overturn.

I wish there was some zone coverage fixes, but maybe those just weren't highlighted. Or perhaps some of the other changes will impact those. It is really annoying when defenders get stuck defending the wrong zone, never make it to their own zone, or don't bother defending receivers in their zones.

Glad the sack issue where defenders hurdle a pass blocker was fixed. I was seeing that animation a lot. Led to a lot of incompletions, turnovers, and sacks because of that.

One of my favorite features that they got rid of a few years back was the Weather Channel feature built in to have accurate weather, temps etc. Why this no longer exists is beyond me.

Hopefully it does... but regardless... next year's game will require multiple patches. Possibly for QB AI and new problems that will certainly pop-up. It will be the same as it ever was.

Next year I plan on buying the game used about 2 months after release. Not worth buying Madden new anymore.

Having that said, this patch is AWESOME and I am enjoying the game way more now.

Thanks! 4 games in and it's much more balanced on the amount of drops I was getting when I went to 52. Less predetermined looking drops and more realistic situations and occasional clunker of wide open hands.

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

I've played six games on default All Pro with 9 minute quarters (great timing on the patch with the long holiday weekend) and I think the CPU's passing attack needs a boost.

vs CLE - 120 yards
@ NE - 364 yards
@ PIT - 235 yards
vs BUF - 65 yards
@ NYG - 153 yards
vs HOU - 198 yards

Four of the six were under 200 yards. I love that Robo QB is nowhere to be found but they need a bit of a boost from what I've seen.
