Things to consider trying to Enjoy Madden 12 more

Ok let me get right to it.

1.Threshold



You might want to try and raise the threshold. yes raise it and here is why.

Players in the NFL are not only very fast, but very agile. I also want to mention that the speed separation in the NFL is not big at all.

You want to feel the NFL speed experience then raise the threshold.

Now I have it at 85. To answer the question that will be asked. YES you can pull away from the defense. I will post a video later showing how Derrick Ward scored on a long TD run. I can not remember the length but it was over 40 yrds. We all know that D.Ward is not the fastest guy in the NFL.

Also by raising the threshold I feel like I have much better control over my guys, and again they feel fast and agile.


2.Tackling Slider



You want to lower the tackling slider. When I was first playing Madden 12 it was a ok experience to me. I was seeing what the results were going to be right before the play was even completed. Now with the tackle slider lowered I can now wonder on "Damn is that TE going to run over my DB" or "Yes maybe B.Jacobs can drive this player back for that 1st down". I was seeing nothing but big hits before I lowered this setting. Now with the lower setting. I'm really liking what I'm seeing. I also noticed way more wrap tackles.

Please don't worry it does not get carried away at all. I had one play in 2 games where a players broke 3 tackles in one play. I will post this video also. We have to admit this does happen in the NFL. It just does not happen all the time, and this what Im getting with lowering the setting. I'm getting WOW moments now.

I have it at 40 for both Human and CPU.


3.Shed Block



Now if you feel that your a solid runner, then raise shed block. What this has done for me is to really read where the defender is being pushed so I can hit the lane properly. Players being blocked in the NFL dont get locked into a block to easily. They may get pushed in a direction but once you get near them they tend to put a hand on you to slow you down.

Now don't worry if a player is being blocked by a stronger player than he will be handled. Just by lowering it the right amount doesn't have the players being stuck when they get blocked. Find what you think works for you.

I also feel that I need to help set up my blocks as im running. I feel like a NFL back now.

4.Interception slider



Many gamers will lower this slider, and I say NO NO NO! Thinking that this will handle the so called super LB!.

I cannot emphasize this anymore, but there is no super LB. They do not jump 50 ft in the sky. Madden passing game is the reason why a player 10 yrds away from the target can simply jump up and snatch a pass. There is a thread breaking this whole situation down. Please read it for tips on how to exactly avoid it.

http://www.operationsports.com/forum...-here-why.html

I'm a firm believer that if you throw a pass right at the defender it should be picked, and only a few should be dropped. Raising the slider for interceptions does exactly that.

I throw probably 1 to 2 ints within a 3 game span, and this is due to panicking under the pressure, and not throwing the ball away. You feel your a solid passer in the game then raise the Interception slider.

I get zero interceptions due to the so call super LB, and this is because I know how to pass the ball in Madden. Again visit the link I provided above to get information in this area.

I have this at 75 for both Human and CPU.

I feel these adjustment are geard for the hardcore sim player. I want to feel the speed of the NFL, which involves split second decisions.

Give these tips a try, and hopefully they will do for you what it has done for me. I know this is not for everyone. Just trying to bring some more joy to some.

Peace

Note: I play on Normal speed, but the speed of the game should not matter.

Re: Things to consider trying to Enjoy Madden 12 more

I've been following your views on the game (much appreciated btw). Did you go from initially lowering the Threshold to raising it? Does it help with giving a more realistic feel of lateral movement and pursuit? Because all I see in videos are mostly north and south movement. I know that's a by-product of little-to-no momentum so the problem can be limited only so much I'd guess - but wondering what it does for power backs, defensive pursuit, etc. to try to give the game a more natural feel. thx

I did start from a lower setting and then raised it up.

What I noticed with a lower threshold is players feeling like they get stuck for a moment before changing direction, and them taking longer to get going. To me that does not represent the NFL at all.

At a higher rating I feel much better when pursuing the ball or player to tackle. It feels more natural. I still also get the sense when im handling a bigger back as to a smaller agile back. They feel different when Im trying to hit that running lane.

When I get home I will record about 8 minutes of Footage so we can evalutae it together.

Re: Things to consider trying to Enjoy Madden 12 more

I want to play on 15 minute quarters, would there be a good Fatigue Slider set to use so players aren't solid for an entire quarter?

I know Steve Smith would put up monsterous receiving numbers if I played him through a full 15 minute quarter, but if fatigue is adjusted, he would come out and I would have to be more strategic about playing and substitutions - it will also stretch out the scoring so it can be like 24-17 at the end of the entire game. You follow me?

I will probably give this a try, I have played simulation madden for a while now but have never messed with those settings.
