Any news if the upcoming patch will address the issue outlined in the first post here?
I wouldn't get your hopes up in that regard. I doubt the patch will fix the relavancy of ratings. If you want to get your hopes up, which I don't recommend, you'd better hope for more substantial ratings in Madden 11.
Hopefully the flats, kickoff coverage, pursuit angles, the temporary hitch step(band aid for bad pursuit angles) , the A.I., CPU QB throwing the ball simply to avoid sacks(which should be intentonial grounding), defense of screen passes, the fact that any DE who lines up at LDE plays like a super natural version of Reggie White, franchise stats, and what ever else I forgot to mention gets addressed with the patch.
