Playaction Does It Work for You?

Simply put how are people finding play action in Madden 12?

From my own experiences it still isn't a strong point of the series, it's the not the sack machine that it was in the early days in Madden 11 but from what'v iv played so far it never fools any Defensive players.

Before people ask iv tried calling the same run play from the same formation for consequential plays then call a PA but to no avail.

Pretty much the minute the ball is snapped the CPU is already backing up to fall back into coverage nothing seems to bite, yet if I flip it around and have the AI pulling PA on me my players routinely fall for it EVEN if the CPU hasn't run the ball at all.

Why does it seem that Madden 12 has two separate rules for the AI and the user? Why can't we get a consistent experience on both sides of the ball?

Playing on All Pro. There seems to be very little give by the CPU in buying my PA regardless of how I set it up.

Re: Playaction Does It Work for You?

I am playin on all pro currently...I've had mixed results on Play action. some pa plays will not work at all and some will work if you are calling them in the right situtation.

my success has been mainly in throwing to the TE out of PA and making sure that the route is either going up the center of the field or putting TE in space outside the hashes.

I don't call more than 5 PA calls a game though either.

Re: Playaction Does It Work for You?

I cannot consistently run the play action. I have had some success with it by pinching my o line, and sometimes I have to hot route a TE to stay home and block to get it to work. Most of the time though it's an instant sack for me so I seldom use it. It's almost like the PA is too slow to develop which causes instant pressure on the qb.

I play online pretty much exclusively. Bootlegs work sometimes, but for the most part I get insta-sacked on play actions. The problem is if you run the ball successfully your opponent blitzes to stop the run, except the blitzers don't consider even looking at the RB, they just go straight for the QB.

What surprises me though is this screams out for DPP. Mean come on it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a trait for "Bites on play action" would lend itself quite well and pretty much solve a good few problems about play action.
