Defense is OP

Alright, Iím not the best Madden player out there, (sim style and pro difficulty) and can usually hold my own against a human or cpu. This year seems different.

Iíve had the game since launch and have a few hours across most game modes. The last few days Iíve been noticing a few things. The cpu almost always knowing my plays, psychic dbís and three magically surrounding my receiver, and almost ZERO run game. Dont think Iíve had over 20 yards (Iím not exaggerating) the last couple days.

Now I love madden, maybe this year I just have to take it down to enjoy it. But something just seems off about the cpu defense this year. Anyone else notice the same thing?

There is lots of talk on here about all of that stuff already, and the AI defense has known your plays for years on Madden.

As far as the lack of run game youíre probably hitting the turbo button as soon as you have the ball, donít know about the passing game but Iím honestly glad that passing and running the ball are both a little harder this year than in the past. Iím not that great and have played against other users online and gotten stomped but imo in the past the cpu has been just too easy to score on...I hope they donít nerf the defense

For the run game I recommend sliders as long as you are being patient with the speed button when running. Try turning user and CPU run block up to about 60 or 70 then adjust it till you find the right spot for you.

Re: Defense is OP

I thought opposing defenses were quite stiff at first too but my last 3 CFM games have been blowouts. Sometimes you have to live to fight another down or drive. Don't force passes. Stick with the run even if you're having some trouble. Vary your playcalling on offense and defense. Get pressure to force turnovers. Manage the clock and the game. My biggest advice to you if you don't have very talented players is to pretend you're coaching a team led by a mid tier game manager QB like Blake Bortles or Alex Smith. Make the smart plays. Not every play will be a 60 yard TD. Throw it away. Take a sack if you have to and punt. A game is long.

The OP said he is on Pro difficulty. I'm also of the impression that Pro is way too difficult. Isn't that supposed to be what difficulty settings are for?

Who says pro should be a cake walk?
