Possibly controversial decision...would like your votes.

Donny, Josh, Phil, myself, and the rest of the design team are not fans of lead block control. It gives a big boost to impact / pancake blocking if you're controlling the blocker, but nothing about it mimics real life football. Seems like kind of the definition of a gimmick...it's used mostly only by online exploiters and glitchers.

We would like to remove it. Not just make it an option and turn it off by default...remove it completely. We like the idea of 'starting fresh' and really re-setting the direction of the Madden franchise, and this seems like a good place to start.

Thoughts? Any reason why you think it should stay?

PLEASE REMOVE THIS NONSENSE and then walk over to the NCAA staff and relay the message to them as well.

Good thinking by your team because there have been huge complaints from a lot of people.

Re: Possibly controversial decision...would like your votes.

Looks like I have a typo in the poll question...can one of the mods change this:

Should the design team remove keep lead block control?

...to...

Should the design team keep 'lead block control'?

Honestly, no half decent players really use it, because the RB does ridculous things in the backfield while the computer is controlling him, and it is also very easy to completely miss a block while the computer controls the lineman for a split second at the snap.

All of the above things, as well as your idea of SIM and "starting fresh are reasons to remove this feature.

I neglected it since it's inception until this year and although it works well it has to go.
