Really encouraged by all of the gameplay adjustments. In particular, the zone coverage changes seem fantastic. Soft coverage was easily my biggest gameplay gripe with the beta.

A bit disappointed, but not surprised, that the new presentation elements (namely, the intros and replay transitions/wipes) weren't mentioned. But, I can't imagine they were as big of an issue for most people as they were for me.

And people wonder why the game feels and plays the same every year ��

They reverted so much back to the way it was in Madden 20, and based on their track record, more will come in future title updates

Good news that they aren't touching player speed so that cats can't cheese with one player. Great news actually.

Re: Madden NFL 21 Closed Beta Feedback (Gridiron Notes)

Yes, the zone work and the tuning of the catching reaction bugs was good to see. The notes mentioned an increase in difficulty in breaking double team blocks in the pass rush. That is a needed improvement to keep Superstar pass rushers in check.

Very glad to hear about them not changing movement, but I'm still concerned that they might change it during the year as the complaining from competitive players becomes more belligerent.

Clint was adamant in the stream in terms of stressing the authenticity of the abilities, so the SS/XF Gridiron Notes on Friday should be very interesting in terms of the tuning and balancing they've received.

"User on defense feels slow/sluggish
While the feedback around this was consistent, it was also very polarizing. The speed at which defenders change of direction will be largely unchanged because the vision for gameplay balance is focused more on authentic player movements and strategic decisions. While we are investigating to ensure there are no bugs in player movement that could be having unintended consequences, the intent of this system is to reduce the area of the field a single defensive player can cover based on ratings and direction changes, and encourage coverage defenders to makes choices about what routes they want to take away. As player ratings increase, the amount of ground a player can cover will also increase."

WINNER!!!! TY for sticking to your guns Madden developers.


I feel these are the best gridiron notes I have read. Glad I pre-ordered the MVP edition.
