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.
Cheating isn't challenging. It actually serves the opposite, by making it less of a mental challenge.

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.
Broken and reversed.

Re: Does Madden Cheat so CPU wins?

I wish they would make it so the defense would always pick a play FIRST and then the offense picks a play. So the defense picks a play based off offensive personnel, and then the offense picks a play. As of right now, for USER, the USER always picks a first. Pick a shotgun pass n the 1-inch line and the CPU will automatically pick a pass defense formation. Pick a run play out of any formation, and the CPU always picks a goalline.

While yes it is a bug and knowing the challenge system is broken I never challenge any plays. I'm still playing Madden 17 but I don't ever challenge plays because it's pointless.

Even though I do give EA props for making the officiating in Madden as bad as the real life officiating we see on Sundays.

Re: Does Madden Cheat so CPU wins?

Past few years I've suspected both the Seahawks and Patriots are "programmed" to win the game.

Unless you run the ball down Seattle's throat at 4-5 yards a clip with some short passes between you are good. If you get behind, their secondary warps to any and every ball in the air and it becomes impossible to make a comeback.

As for the Pats, you could have them down by 20 in the 4th, Brady will pull the game out at the end (they will stuff your run game). One exception, with 16 seconds left I had Keenan Allen beat his man and killed their comeback.

Just what we need every time we play the Pats in Madden.

SB is broken, and probably reversed, too.

Seriously, though, a multitude of fans in any sport thinks games IRL, especially important ones, are "programmed." By the umpires, by the refs, by the league, to keep a preferred team on top -- for ratings, market size revenue, or any number of reasons. Not surprising, really, that people feel the same way about Madden.
