Madden 11: Utlized right stick for pass-catching

I've been saying this for years, but I would love it if they would finally implement it.

It would help separate the great receivers from mediocre ones.

Up=Jump ball type catch where you lose all momentum
Left/Right=Run after catch, or avoid big hit
Down=Possesion catch

They need to add several new catch animations though. An actual jump ball animation is way overdue.

Re: Madden 11: Utlized right stick for pass-catching

Interesting idea. I just want them to make WR size matter. But with this system they should make an opposite reaction for the defense so they guess which one you pressed by pressing it as a CB, like you(offense) press up and I(defense) pressed up, it would be a much better contested catch. But if you pressed up and i pressed left, you have a better % to catch as I reacted incorrectly.

But again, tall receivers must matter.

Re: Madden 11: Utlized right stick for pass-catching

Pretty complicated my man...maybe there could be a balance between them also.

Eg. Up-left(diagonally) would be a jump ball animation slanted to the left but without loosing all momentum.
Down-left would be a possession catch that was for possession while moving thus weakening some of the possession aspect in the catch.

I believe the up and down directions would only be used for the extremes of their uses.

Eg. (not another one *sighs*) The down direction on the stick, possession, would only be used if you knew you were about to take a huge hit right after the catch and the up direction on the stick, jumping high, would only used if the ball was lobbed extremely high for whatever reason, and the WR had to come to a complete stop and collect himself for the jump. Just an addition to your great idea.

It is actually in the game now on deep passing. Press down on the right stick.

Re: Madden 11: Utlized right stick for pass-catching

Only press down on the right stick if you are in perfect position and the ball is right there, otherwise, watch in amazement as your player runs away from the ball. Really very poorly implemented.

I remember the good old days when receivers were allowed to turn around and catch the ball. Just a shame that they never do this in real life or in the game anymore.
