Follow the receiver ... literally?

I was playing an online game the other day. My opponent completed a sideline pass to his receiver, on the left sideline. The receiver was covered by a CPU defensive back. I did not take control of the defensive back.

As the receiver was running down the sideline, the defensive back was running parallel to the receiver, and was located slightly behind the receiver.

When my opponent did a cut to the right, going back into the field of play to prevent from being tacked while clinging to the sideline, my CPU defensive back cut to the right, at the same time my opponent did. My CPU defensive back kept his same distance, running parallel to the receiver.

My opponent cut back left.

MY CPU defensive back cut back left. With the same pace, ,and spacing, between them.

My opponent cut back right, back into the field of play.

Like they were magnetically attached, my CPU defensive back cut back right, at the exact same time, keeping the exact same amount of spacing between him and the receiver.

My opponent did this several times, and scored a touchdown.

Anyone else experience this before?

I don't see it in my games because I'm a single player gamer who doesn't play in a way that tries to take advantage of flawed gameplay mechanics, but yes there are, and have been for a very long time, serious issues with the way pursuit works in this game. When you get the right spacing and speed match ups, you will see how glaring the problem is.

That context is not necessary. I'm asking a sincere question.

However, the fact there are flawed gameplay mechanics doesn't mean I'm taking advantage of them. Instead, I hoping to avoid them.

Example: Scripted blocked field goals. The way to prevent it is known. When you go to kick a field goal (or extra point), you normally press X (on a PS4) for power, then X for accuracy. But, instead, press and HOLD X when it comes to accuracy, then release. It's been discovered the scripted animation of the player running past the lineman that "slips" as the ball is snapped isn't run, and you can kick the field goal without a forced blocked kick by the CPU.

Wonder why it's been a serious issue, and for so long? Would figure, over time, these things would be addressed, and fixed.

Re: Follow the receiver ... literally?

Certain slider settings will result in what I refer to as "mirroring" like you are describing. If you can post your EXACT slider settings (both Main Menu and CFM) as well as your autosub settings, penalty settings, fatigue/injury, I can probably tell you where the breakdown is occurring.

Edit: for what it's worth, if you're running a default setup with default injury/fatigue sliders, the quickest "fix" to the mirroring issues is to lower the injury slider to 39 in CFM. If you've made slider adjustments, any number of settings could jack things up.

Thanks. Note itís online head to head (random matchup) so, will adjusting settings matter there? If so, how does the online experience determine whether to take your settings vs your opponent settings?

Oh....did not realize it was online in H2H. Nothing can be done then from a slider perspective.
