What's happened to the CPU scrambling QBs?

This must've been changed in a recent patch or gameplay tuner. I can't get QBs like Lamar Jackson or Patrick Mahomes to scramble in CFM. They'll just sit in the pocket and take coverage sacks. On a previous build, Jackson was gashing me for huge runs. Now he's just a not very accurate pocket passer.

This kills the game.

If it kills it to an unbearable extent uninstall the game and turn your auto update settings off or disregard the option for the current updates when reloading it.
That is pretty wacked, man. smh

The best fix I found was to change their archetype to scrambler, they will take off running more often. Though, of course I was playing against Lamar and he had some statue sacks but he took off running a few times

Played Lamar and he didn't leave the pocket once the entire game. Didn't do any QB runs either.



Not sure how they can call their playbooks "Live" if the Ravens don't do designed runs with their QB. There's clearly a big difference between claiming to put real life tendencies into the game and actually doing it.

There used to be a time when you were excited for a patch. You think to yourself "awesome... they fixed so and so issue"

When I saw there was a patch two weeks ago, my reaction was more like I wish they just leave well enough alone at this point.

I was looking at EA Sports forums and someone brought the same issue up in coach mode. Apparently this became an issue (again) when CPU running back special moves were put back in. So it's one or the other I guess.

As much as I loved this year's Madden, this pretty much kills it for me. Dual threat QBs are such an integral part of the game. It defeats the whole purpose of X-factors, or ratings, or traits.

MLB the show is around the corner.

Has it been tested beyond one or two games? Even in older gens of Madden this was an issue here and there. But often times the CPU wouldn't play the QB the right way every game. Some games a scrambler would stay in the pocket. And other games they would break the pocket nearly every play. All with the same QB and team.
