Madden 18 Fixes & Changes

Madden 18 Fixes & Changes

EA is fixing some Madden 17 problems and upgrading the new Madden release.

One of the biggest updates and fixes is to the diving tackle. Clint Oldenburg of EA confirms that EA fixed the diving suction tackle in Madden 18. Additionally, Rex Dickson of EA shares changes to the Hit Stick in Madden 18. 

Hit stick is no longer on X. You need to line it up with the right stick and there is no heat seeker. This means a lot of the tackling skills will come from your abilities, not the computer's ability to set it all up for you. 

Connected Franchise Mode players will be happy to know that off ball injuries are in Madden 18.

    Looks like I’m first. Another yet of promises and another year of exploits.
    We already see the exploit and unrealistic passing they have already which to a degree lets you target the WR. I can see this making for some messy games because there is no INTELLIGENCE behind the feature. Just because you target someone doesn’t mean they will be READY for the pass. This game does NOT respect route running and timing.

    Day ONE… no matter the video or what gamers who tell us differently with their canned disclaimers… I will show the SAME ISSUES continue to exist in this game and features is nothing more than a marketing tool rather than a true feature.

    I’m posting videos from M17 now and will look for them to continue to exist in M18 and I will post them IMMEDIATELY this time around.

    The videos will consist of Gameplay (the most important: Fake AI, Fake Physics, Predetermined tackles, etc… ), Playbook (creation, editing, settings, flow), Practice Mode, Commentary… yes commentary is not just about updating a players last week stats and status for this week to play, Game UI while playing (lots and lots and lots of bugs).

    Having improved graphics and poor game play doesn’t make for much of an improvement.
