Blocked field goals, punts, and XP's oh my!

On Madden day (yesterday) I was the only guy who couldn't block XP's, field goals, and Punts.

Please tell me how this is done or how to stop it from happening. One guy seemed to get to the Punter before the damn ball did. Anyone have a counter to this or know how to do it so I can even the score?

Field goals weren't even an option by the end of the day.

I dont think offsides is working correctly, I think thats one of the problems. I wasn't getting called for being offsides in the Early Release version.

Re: Blocked field goals, punts, and XP's oh my!

Hold A or X depending on the console after you make the accuracy check to hold the snap off. If the guy tries to jump it he'll give you 5 free yards otherwise you get your kick off.

If they have came up with some sort of turbo blitz technique already then we are sadly doomed...though I'd try kicking as fast as possible.

To block one yourself simply comes down to timing the snap with one of the outside rushers or even the middle returning who is just over the LB. If you time it right you can either get to a point where you can jump and block it (the middle route) or make a diving block (the outside route). If your opponent is always snapping around the same time you should be able to get pretty close.

I got one blocked by the CPU. In a key spot too. Very impressive.

Holding (A) is a great idea. I will do that next time. I love that you can block kicks but it got a little crazy. I knew I was forgetting something.

Thank you.

No problem they've had this in the game for a few year now but there has never been much a need for it until now. I really started seeing how useful it could be this year after a guy blocked consecutive extra points on me because I simply wasn't paying attention and was just going through the motions to kick it.

I ended up forcing my self to pay attention on the next kick and got the penalty. He did it one more time before he stopped trying to jump the snap.
