All Pro... Since this league started I've never seen so many CPU teams at the beginning of a fresh madden game. For me the CPU on All Madden is too demanding for lack of a better word. Not just that it's difficult, but also a drag to play getting cheated rather than beat and boring. Like Thai said, I'd rather sim, got better things to do. Fancy my chances more with a sim aswell.

I remember making the playoffs last madden and I think 3 of my wins came when I couldn't make the game and my CPU team beat the owner.

To all who are posting about the strength of the cpu and All-Madden vs All-Pro: we recognise there is a problem and are considering what to do about it.

I agree that the number of vacancies we have this year is depressing; we have lost several long-standing owners, which has been disappointing. We've advertised on a couple of forums for new members, but not much else we can do. Not sure what the problem is and why this league is in the doldrums at the moment.
I believe it is well-run, but I suppose others would say that I would say that. So yes, we will be looking at the leadership this year too and if people think a change is necessary, then a change there shall be.

Getting back to the cpu games, this seemed to become a problem in Madden 17 and has continued this year. Prior to that, it was rare to see a user defeated by the cpu, which was probably too much the other way. But now it seems nigh-on impossible, especially when you have a poor team and are of limited ability yourself.

Last game vs Cpu 33-31 vs chargers, much better runing game, 4.2 per try, looks nice. 
Still too much pressure on qb from cpu front 7, but i guees its more "achievement" of sf oline      
Lets just hope we have a couple new user teams and less cpu..

all pro is going to put you on the other spectrum where cpu will be pretty easy and user games will have dumber players.

the reason i like all madden is because the other 10 players i dont control are less stupid.

even so if people cant cope with the sliders i could get some all pro sliders.
however the all pro sliders usually come with a lot of house rules just to keep the games some what sim.
pretty much like thai explained.

personally i feel those suit a solo run league more then a online franchise with numerous users.

ill tinker with the sliders a bit more and id say we evaluate by the end of the season on how things went.

i encourage people to play their cpu games though and post here what works and what is an issue.

Had a another good game vs cpu with back ups.

And i this game i won. When last game i enjoyed but lost

I suggest when playing cpu opwn up your book,ignore habits. Get off r2 when running.

Passing wise i say drop down to 10 cpu slider.

Its not about winning or losing Matty it's about it being enjoyable. I've played games on here against human opponents and not enjoyed it because it's been boring and tedious watching crossing play after crossing play. Im not just playing a cpu game to get angry I could just speak to the Mrs if I wanted to have my head peckered for an hour

I know it's about being enjoyable,But everyone is different. I was just saying i enjoyed my last two games where i won and lost.

Agree with tru on the All pro front being more stupid AI then All Madden, With the House rules it can't be monitored so that's another problem.

The Solution is Play your cpu games and help tru get it where we need it,will it be frustrating yes but it's not like it's every game we play cpu is it.

I say Drop the main ones cpu by 5 each change. think most are on 30 now

That's the thing I don't think all-pro is that stupid because I play it sim but if your worried about people cheering it's fair enough. And I'm genuinely not playing cpu games if it stays like that you can boot me if you want.

As it In Sim mode, it might sound stupid but have you Compared your Line Ratings vs Defenders.

Also to remind everyone Awareness plays a role how good your line can be. Center is Key
LB and DL also have Impact Block now,Meaning how good they are blowing up blocks and staying on there feet.

I'm Just relaying what Devs have said ,so take it as you will

I'm not f***ing arguing the merits of zach strief he's one of the best tackles in the game and if I can't run behind him with Mark Ingram there's clearly something flawed? I can ID the Mike run to the lesser number side it wasn't happening. Now if that's how I play the game I best jack it in playing cpu games as I have limited free time as it is. Not wasting it on playing a game like that.

As for all-pro it's down to you lot how the league is run. I'm telling you I find the game enjoyable played in sim on all-pro. By that I mean I don't run backwards on an outside run which people use to cheese the cpu. If your more worried about people spamming stats then that's fair enough as Tavon Austin name is even now mentioned in hushed tones.

Tbh I just spent 5 minutes typing up this message without flying off the handle and it's ironically caused me to get more angry. Just do whatever I'll leave the league save the aggro

I’m with Thai on this! With so many CPU games (potentially) then I want at least an option of a fair fight! Does All Pro have any effect on HvH games? 

If it doesn’t then I really don’t understand the issue! People manipulate their gaming styles regardless and personally I find that both boring and annoying!

Who's arguing, thought we were just chatting.Top at pass block not so much run.
Just like you we are trying to get the balance right no need to get angry and leave.

It's not aggro, We do need to fix it.

So let me make it clear I'm not in the best '18 shape yet  Mad

Starting Jags D-line was dominating Falcons O line, almost insta shed block.
Stacking the box on every running call, managed to pull of some yards with Coleman after audibling pass play into run but that was pretty much it.

Jags only had 5 passing completions the whole game, Ivory broke a long one (75 yrd) by being Ivory and managed to get decent yardage, 133 to close of the game. 
Which I guess is somewhat understandable since the defense isn't really build to stop the heavy pounding, although I was ultra aggressive on stopping the run.

Passing game felt alright, most success in short save passes with Schaub later on, after his injury thought I would use a bit more risk with Ryan but that basically got punished by some bad choices by myself.

So yeah the only gripe I got from this match is the running game.

upping user blocking means ratings will mean less in user vs user games.
