Technically, and this isn't meant to sound rude or anything, a kid watching football for the first time has a 50% chance of knowing whether the offense is going to run or pass because it's a 50/50 chance. Maybe I'd lower it to around 75, because these guys do nothing but study the games so I'm sure they see a lot of things that we don't. It's like poker players, defense look for tells that us spectators would never even think of.

actually its like playing poker with a an icon tipping your opponent's hand off, thus changing the game completly. in other words it changes the game completely. which renders your analogy pointless....

I typed a long response and got booted. LOL, anyway, I was describving the 50% theory by throwing in intangibles like play action passing, bad play calling, attempted trickery (halfback draws on 3rd and 15), and risk averse tendencies of coaches. Anyways...I feel that while 50% sounds simplistic as lipping a coin, the reason I have it at 50% is b/c of all the intangibles on any given play.

If that's what you need in order to be successful, then yes. Not EA's fault if you suck at Madden.

Oh yeah? Let's play online sometime. I'm drooling, thinking of how easily I could dispose of your "punt block" defense.

Again, unless you're absolutely terrible at Madden (which I'm getting the impression that you are), you don't have to resort to using audibles or not using the coach cam.

If you know the game of football, chances are you'll be able to tell whenever a team is going to run or pass, anyway.

PLUS, this glitch only shows up with certain formations...not ALL of them. I'd hardly consider this a gamekiller. More like an excuse for people like you to do what you love to do...flap their gums and stir up trouble on message boards such as these.

Let's play sometime. Hell, I'll tell you which play I'm calling every time and I PROMISE you that I'll still get my yards, I'll still get my first downs, and I'll still score my touchdowns.

Nobody is stopping you from returning your game. I am going to keep mine, because I'm smart enough to figure out how to win, despite the fact that my opponent might know whether I'm running or not in certain formations.

Oh, and the thing about it making you sick to read posts like mine? The feeling is mutual, chief.

very true, I'll agree with that, and thanks for the clarification.

I was talking about real football, not the video game, try and fully read the post before displaying your hate for the game.

longhorn obviously you have game, but we're in the o.s. madden forum. we all know madden, we all know real football like the back of our hands. so the "i know more than you" thing isn't impressing anyone. in fact it comes off as overly defensive. but i'm gonna choose to not get into a battle with you, because like you i LOVE ea and madden.

but if you can't understand why we feel this flaw gives us more info than we want to know when executing a gameplan, well, lets just agree that we're playing different games. but i certainly wouldn't hate on people because they have a problem with what many consider one of the most fun-killing flaws in madden history.

but this is an important thread lets not blow it up.

(edited for brutal spelling)

Re: Q

All I'm going to say is I never hated on anyone, nor did I mean that in any way about "I know more about football than you" I was just saying that i wasn't talking about the Madden game in relation to poker, but real defense on the field watching the QB's eyes, watching the set up and other things that we would never notice.

I do enjoy Madden and most of EA's games, but I'm just saying I don't understand how an avoidable problem like this is a gamekiller. Hell I never even noticed it until I read an earlier thread. I don't know, maybe I do always try and look on the bright side of EA's flaws(like the comeback AI that seems to be toned down this year; I personally enjoy it)
