• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

Madden 17 same ole shit

One can only hope for the end of run commit , better zone coverage where I can user the d line, better gap control against the run from line backers, under center run plays that work maybe add seasons to online ranked like FIFA, Gameplay reveal Thursday

Just got spanked 55-0 by a guy that spammed three plays:
Ace Inside Cross (Mesh Dig concept), Ace Corners (Smash), and Bunch Cross (Slot cross). I called the coverages to counter it - no luck. Dude ran no huddle and went for it on fourth down up. 49-0 in the 4th.

*sigh* I should probably quit playing this and spend my time watching real games because this shit is closer to intramural flag football than pee wee.

Completely "revolutionized" run game isn't. All they did was add the receiver button popups for runs.

Run defense and gap responsibilities are eh. Saw many runs where contain defenders would run into teammates trying to play the ball rather than set the edge.

New zone D does appear correct. That is a nice plus.

Toss has been nerfed. Still pops for a big gain every now and again.

FB Dive is still OP, but it's a 250 GROWN MAN running down the field. So...

POP != RPO
The pop pass is basically a packaged play consisting of a deep route and screen with a run fake added in. You typically read a safety to determine which throw to make.

An RPO involves reading a key to determine run or pass and sometimes keep. It's a triple option of sorts.

Yeah, I'm enjoying the game as well. I think I'm going to drop the game speed to slow and use some sliders on OS, but I've actually been able to play half a season so far with default All-Pro sliders.

Defense is really nice besides the pass rush as always an run fits need work offense I just screen people to death an hit a deep ball every now an then the motion swing play is like a toss out of the gun I give this game a 7.5/10 better than the last 3 but still not up to 2k standards oh and I absolutely hate the kick meeter

Kick meter is a godsend for those who remember the early 00s. The meter was always that way until the PS3/360.

So far my main beefs are that the run blocking is really bad and punts are a pain to get right but overall it's a bit better than the past couple of years. I did get a good laugh at the intro game with Goff as a potential ROY.

Why the fuck is the run blocking so busted? Jesus its terrible. 3 guys in the backfield on every run
Run the jet screens for run plays lol I can hit a outside zone every now an then or a quick pitch but for inside runs the fullback dive is the only thing that works decently
