It's also disorientating the way the numbers move about.

Or is THAT just me?
I HATE the numbers... the motion makes it hard to see the difference in the actual look of some of the formations for me

I find that im more likely to use the more variety in formations if I'm not shown the last one over and over. Should probably be a setting though.

yes...seen this too....bothers me on D as well...i'm controlling Barnes at MLB and the next play my marker is on the safety or a lineman or another backer....then good luck trying to switch back...every time another guy crosses between the guy I'm controlling and the guy I want to get to...I end getting him instead.

This bothers me more than the formation thing. I hate having to scroll to find the player I'm controlling. Time is at a premium pre-snap when your on defense. I like to look over an offensive formation and adjust accordingly. That precious second or two has cost me in the demo whether it was flipping the play, or shifting the linebackers.

yup and you also lose like a second or two having to hit circle to skip the pre snap animation, instead of hitting R2 and getting to survey the field as they walk to the LOS.

This really bugs me too... Not too happy about the little changes... totally unnecessary IMO.

Re: Formation not remembered?

It doesn't bother me as much anymore when it goes to the top of the formation list AFTER I ran a play...

But...

Now its frustrating me more, because it jumps back to the top even BEFORE you run a play...

Example - I'm going through my PB, looking for a play...
I go into Shotgun Snugs Flip...
I look through the plays and decide I don't want any of them...
I hit Circle (ps3) to back out of Shotgun Snugs Flip formation...
Now, it takes me all the way to the top of all the Shotgun formations... And I have to scroll all the way back down to where I want to be...

#frustrating...
