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

I have only played 2 game with this update but I just have to say this patch is like the best patch EA has ever done on madden and I am pleasantly surprised by the results. A big issue with madden for a long time is that its like ever year when a new madden game comes out or a new patch comes out that something else that worked fine before ends up being broken or gets a lot worse by them trying to fix something. With this patch not only is it looking like the patch really did fix things but it looks like it didn't really make any thing worse. There are still some things that madden needs to improve/fix and some of those have been a issue for a while such has bad clock management/ play calling. CPU will only go into no huddle with less then 2 minutes left even if they are down 2 scores with only like 5 minutes left and also when they need to try to score with not a lot of time left they will run the ball to much. Also wind still has to much of a effect on punts. With that said though madden does play a solid game again after this patch. Hopefully EA doesn't let QB play slip backwards again with madden 19.

No.

I have seen a couple of "statue" sacks from backup QBs, though have not correlated to a specific play and, they are backups, after all. Even IRL, "statue" sacks happen occasionally. For sure, just a couple of weeks ago I saw "Big Ben" stand in the pocket for 5+ seconds and then take a sack, without having moved more than a couple of feet.

Overall, QB AI is close to ideal during the play itself.

Now, what needs to be added, is the ability for the AI QB to read plays, audible, and adjust in a realistic manner (instead of always snapping immediately 5 secs after lining up).

After several games on AP default, I am just not seeing it and keeping a close eye out for it.


No not seen this issue not all since the last patch..and Road I was extremely skeptical of the ability to fix this issue..and like a man should..I will stand here and say..wow they have hit a homerun with this patch..I hope this issue going forward will no longer be an “issue”..I was wrong to believe they wouldn’t be able to fix this.

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

This patch did wonders for games against the CPU. Even All Pro is challenging now because of how much better CPU QB AI is. Good QBs are especially hard to stop and they seem to really play as the traits are set.

My online league uses All Pro and I played the CPU Colts last night because my opponent was on AP and Andrew Luck was really good. I almost lost.

Having this fixed has made the game against the CPU a really good experience. It's like it's a new game. It seems to be the best AI QB play I've seen in a video game.

One last thing. QBs play to their skill level. Elite QBs play way better than average ones. So that's a really good thing. I wouldn't want all qbs playing great.

Now if we can get the CPU play calling fixed this could be a really special AI to face.

Great patch guys.

No. I have not seen that at all. Pre patch or post patch.

People always act like Moody tells it like it is but he is very biased. He showcases other FB games and unrealistically praises them. The vast majority of his fan base hates Madden and I'm convinced he caters to them to keep an audience. With out Madden very few would watch his channel.

Yeah, even though it's a hassle, you get used to it. That Sabo dudes playbooks are off the hook. Definitely cutting yourself short if you don't at least give then a look.
