Also messes up your WR's route timing.

Dumb question. Where exactly do I find the “brace for hits trait”? And what setting should I change the trait to from “all”? I’m using the 75 man pre-season roster and when I go to edit player/traits, I don’t see a “brace or hits” category. I do see a cover ball trait, is that the one?

Yeah, even before the patch, wrs were jogging in the mud on routes. But with it being offscreen most of the time, you didn’t notice as bad, like on kick returns. The WRs seemed fine pre=patch after they caught the ball it was just during routes.

Yeah, that is the one.

It only has an impact after the catch. CPU receivers run their routes at normal speed, but the bug kicks in after catching the ball.

I have started to notice it a lot more in my franchise. Luckily I only have 2 games left in the season, so maybe a fix will be out by the time I start the next season.

I'm not going to edit all the brace traits. That is time consuming and could also lead to a lot more fumbles.

I've still had the RB or receivers make some long runs/catches because when I go in to tackle or hit stick them I completely whiff because I'm not used to the slow speed they running at. Just had Cousins rack up over 300 yards passing on me with that bug. Receivers can still get down the field in their routes just fine.
