There are 4 common NFL routes that I use alot that are not in the game:

Slant hook Slant break

Slant out

Flat out




I run them at various distances depending on the situation and route combination. Being able to put these in would vastly improve my ability to run my offense, and others to create the routes needed for their offenses.

It'd be nice for Madden to take another stab at a play editor. Hell, at this point, I'll just take custom playbooks back.
Front Page Sports Football had a pretty robust play editor. By most accounts it's the best one ever in a football game.

Ah, never played Front Page Sports. The UR one, though, I'm not sure could have been improved on. You could draw routes however you wanted with MS Paint-like lines, place guys with precision in any legal formation you could imagine, set up a playaction fake at any point behind the LOS, etc. I'm guessing Front Page Sports was similar.

Oh, and those routes, the only one I haven't seen is the slant out. At least in NCAA, since that's the game I play the most. The others, while uncommon, are definitely in NCAA.

I should have said that they are not available as hot routes. I have seen all those routes in Madden, they are just not where I need them.

I'm big on manipulating defenses with route combinations, so having the right routes in the same play is very important to me. I find the standard playbooks to be extremely lacking and frustrating to use.

Agreed. I vote that they add either a play editor or a route creator to solve these issues.

It should be noted that a "create a hot route" feature would effectively be a play editor, just one that was combersome to use.

It would be nice if you could save combinations of routes instead of just one at a time.

Just some food for thought.
