Missing Feature: Quickly tapping the button to break tackles

One thing that Madden has always missed the mark with is the ability to quickly tap a button to break tackles. This was one big reason why running the ball in NFL2K5 made it so fun. Giving the user the ability to continuously tap the button while the RB engages with a tackler gives the sensation of really fighting for those extra yards.

I really hope the Madden Dev's take note of this... Its one of those little things that makes a huge impact on the fun factor. At least give us the "Option" to toggle this feature on/off. I guarantee this though...giving us the ability to engage in a battle for extra yards by quickly tapping a button will be a HUGE addition to making Madden much more exciting to play. Again...this was one of the BIG aspects that made running the ball in NFL2k so exhilarating..especially when the game was on the line and only a few yards were needed to win or extend the game...having to fight for those few extra yards was fun.

I guess the biggest reason why tapping the button quickly to break tackles made NFL2k so fun, is what i said, the "physical" requirement in quickly tapping the button to break out of tackles actually gives the user the sensation of having to physically fight for those extra yards.

Re: Missing Feature: Quickly tapping the button to break tackles

I'm all for options for everyone, but it's not something that I've enjoyed playing sports games is becoming a "thumb jockey" or "button jammer."

Another category, to each their own.

I know this has come up in some discussions at OS in the past.

I'm not the biggest fan of that feature, but I was always more of a fan of it than the tackle battle we got last year. If tackle battle remains I'd rather see it more like 2k, but it wouldn't be the same since sprinting is different between the games as well.

Doesn't lowing your shoulder increase the chance of a broken tackle? I'm fine with that and letting ratings and RB moves to determine the rest.

Re: Missing Feature: Quickly tapping the button to break tackles

Your asking for a lot is of controller buttons to be worn very quickly.
Some gamers are very heavy button mashers.

Unnecessary wear and tear that quickly becomes an additional cost just to play the game.

There’s user control, then there’s overkill.

Also, you just excluded a newer community (those with disabilities) that they’re trying to incorporate going forth.

This. Although I'm pretty much against all button mashing to break tackles. Let momentum, the stick direction, and moves decide.

No on the button mashing, and tackle battles are out of M20.
