Re: New Madden NFL 10 blog post - QB improvements

I have a question about the accuracy section. Don't know if this was mentioned....

Based on your new algorithm...It seems like there's no way that a ball can be thrown behind the receiver. I think having an inaccurate qb throw right behind a receiver running an out and into the waiting safeties arms would be good too.

I'm no programmer (or artist obviously ) but this is how it should look imo. I understand the smaller the area the less odds of the ball being thrown around that area which is why you went for the new shape. But the same should be done in a smaller fashion for the opposite side.



Just my opinion. Don't know if it's feasible or maybe I'm just misunderstanding your chart.

EXCELLENT work overall though Ian .

I thought the chart shows a small chance for it being thrown behind a reciever but either way I think it's well done. I also think redoing these charts based on route type will have a huge impact on the cpu QB going deep. They never led the WR enough in the past and this will hopefully make them try it a lot more and be more successful.

Wow, what a great gameplay addition. I cannot wait for the first cheeser to sprint to the sideline and attempt to launch the ball across there body to a receiver on the other end of the field, and watch as I swat or pick it off. They will be saying dang that worked the last 10 years, but not anymore.

This is impressive. I've been wanting separate ratings for short, medium and long passes and throwing on the run for a long time now. I’m still skeptical in that EA has ratings that don’t work as it is. If you’re going to add these well needed new ratings, PLEASE code the game so that they actually have an effect.

And as others have said, please don't make this result in more interceptions. Just have more incompletions hit the ground...PLEASE!!!!

By the way, for the NCAA guys, Jacory Harris of the Miami Hurricanes is good at throwing on the run and might even have more accuracy on his deep ball than he does his short passes.

Now I’m waiting for the announcement that says the defensive user can decide which player defends an offensive player, kind of like how 2k5 does it. Sorry to bring up that title. I bought it last night and almost jazzed my pants when I saw that feature in there. I’ve been wanting it forever.

Defensive assignments were in Madden 2005 for current gen. I agree it is a great feature and should be included in this years game.

Sounds great. I have to say though, hopefully the franchise is a lot better and or online leagues are added.

With that link I'm guessing that the latter won't be the route taken. Look, I'm not here to insult, you have one of the coolest jobs that there is, and I understand a very tough one as well. Part of it that makes it tough is taking the good feedback with the bad. It doesn't matter what business you're in, when building/developing anything you always have to listen to both sides.

What I posted is simply the reality of the situation. If Madden ever wants to win over simulation football fans then a lot of changes need to be made. Throwing the ball when directed to do so is only a basic step in that overall direction.
