My Xbox can't get here any sooner.

Tomorrow should be the day, thanks guys.

Two of the some of the OSer's opinions I care about came through.

Would love to know what this is as well. Wild guess: maybe you can somehow tag favorite plays?

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

Downloaded the update, started playing as my Dolphins against the Panthers to gauge Cam Newton's responsiveness to pocket pressure.

Improvement is noticeable. I'm blitzing on every play (not trying to win, just want to see the patch adjustments). One quarter of play, maybe 12 defensive snaps for me. Cam scrambled to the left or right out of the pocket three times. He didn't run with the ball, instead opting to pass downfield, but he did indeed leave the pocked under pressure from Suh and Wake. He also roasted me on a QB Power run.

They tuned QB behavior in a really nice way. I played Matt Ryan as CHI and he took just 1 sack on a busted protection, while completing 63% of his passes. I noticed that he responded more quickly to pressure, moved more intelligently, and got the ball out quicker, all without going Robo QB. He missed on several throws.It also looks like they sped up the release animation, which is a good thing.

I was on All Pro with King's sliders and I got great game play. I know the arguments about sample size, but I have played this game so much that I know instantly when something is different. From what I saw, it looks like they got QB AI significantly improved. I'm stunned.

It also looks like the bit about creating separate thresholds for each accuracy range has a real effect on the game. It looked to me like more intermediate passes were off the mark with Trubisky than before. That's also a welcome change.
i thought the accuracy threshold tuning was stated as competitive mode only??

im glad to see they addressed cpu qb a.i.

but what about autosubs and fatigue?? still impossible to give 20 carries to rb1 and 10 to rb2 without manual subs??

does cpu rb1 still carry it 30 times?

penalties still being non existent when they touted them working in sim mode this year bugs me.

no word on man defense, zone defense, wr catching...

for a major "sim" patch as it was referred to....they really only touched on 1 of the major issues...

im really disappointed.

Follow-up: gonna double-check this myself, but in a message with RG (one of the EA Sports Madden competitive broadcast personalities), he said that the yellow tags indicate which plays are set as audibles in a given formation.

Could have been random re: the extra missed passes, but I saw both QBs miss throws they normally don't. I've played this exact matchup probably 25 times, as it's my default test game for sliders, etc.

Re: fatigue, I can't tell. I use formation subs to manage this. I'm not gonna blow sunshine on their fatigue and sub system. It doesn't work like it should. I have no idea if it's better or worse.

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

So far, so good. Playing franchise with all-madden default sliders, QB play is greatly improved. Even challenged a sideline catch made by the CPU and the call was overturned into an incompletion! Only gripe is that I had one running play where the o-line pancake glitch was triggered.
