i just can't believe the game ruled it a catch on the field as it should have been...then took it away via replay

Re: Does Madden Cheat so CPU wins?

I understand, as others have said in this very thread, it's a bug in the challenge system and Clint acknowledged it needs fining.


That isn't cheating to win.

No, the game doesn't cheat.

We've all had bogus challenges go our way just as often as they go against us.

When you are on the short end of the stick it sticks in your mind more than when you are the beneficiary of it.

Re: Does Madden Cheat so CPU wins?

Absolutely. I always had the impression that the CPU know exactly what I going to do. So I had definite proof of this a few years ago. When I reached the last 3 yards of the field and chose a run, the CPU always chose a goaline formation. But when I chose a passing play, cpu picks a more standard pass defense. So I started to pick some run out of gun formation and audible to a quick pass like slants e short corner routes, resulting on TD 99% of time.

I decided to use the same strategy on defense. I pick some random play as cover 3 and after the players settle in the line of scrimmage, audible to another play. What I realized: especially in passing plays, the CPU has become much less aggressive and make some pretty dumb passes that before I did not see in the game.

That's still the case with the cpu choosing a goaline defense anytime you choose a run near the goaline.

First, when I looked at your clip, I never got a view of the first foot to come down. I assume it was out of bounds.

But regardless, getting the calls wrong on review is not exactly uncommon in the NFL. I seriously never care or give a second thought to the challenge system. For me, it's fine. It's mostly right, and occasionally wrong. Just like the NFL.

And no, the game doesn't cheat. **** happens, just like on every Sunday. Sometimes it just feels like everything is stacked against you.

Is the NFL broken, because it is total bull**** that the Chiefs went from one of the best offenses in football to pathetic for almost no good reason? Should they adjust sliders to get the running game going again? If it were in Madden, I guarantee you someone would be posting about how broken the game is.

Re: Does Madden Cheat so CPU wins?

I used to think this, and then I realized that it wouldn't be any fun if the CPU just let you walk all over it. It's supposed to be a challenge and after this recent patch, I've had some great games go down to the wire because of it. Is it frustrating to see receivers drop passes? Absolutely. But it's just as frustrating for us as it is for the players in real life. Any given thing can happen on any given Sunday.
