Not a fan of these sliders. The QB accuracy is wild. My first pass of today's game game under thrown and picked off. Bad pass by a bad (rated) QB. Brilliant play. I had to look at the replay because I thought it was madden cheese but i was wrong. Then there's the passes which are just ridiculous. If it's a real NFL game, a flag gets thrown for intentional grounding. So bad! Pass defenders are flying everywhere at speed. WRs not catching anything.

I'm also seeing my players getting stuck in the mud. Like a run play, or WR cut whilst running a route, he slows down or just completely stops moving. Same with KR, he'll receive the kick and freezes for a second before I can even do anything 

I'm sure some of the more skilled players like the challenge but it's way too hard for somebody like me. I gave up on today's preseason game and simmed it to the end

I agree about pass accuracy. It is ridiculous, same as defenders who "teleport" or who take not his route when the play m2m. Freeze of kr are about the game, not about sliders

Hey Tru just played my game against Blitz , running the ball was very irritating, the HB always stops when he receives the ball. Just some feedback

I believe this is what EA has factored into the game this year. I have no idea why - it's ridiculous. It's the same off kick-off and punt returns.

I've found it alsmot impossible to score, other than the odd FG. I did get a pick 6 in my last game but never threatened to score. Receivers dropped passes, had the ball knocked out and defenders made acrobatic dives to break up passes - even the backups. I could almost predict when my drive was going to stall and even at the end, I had a man wide open in acres of space for what would have been the equalising score and of course, the QB was wildly off-target.

I think the back up DET QB made 6 consecutive completions at one stage and my defenders happily left the offense wide open all over the place. I do believe that playing the CPU should be a challenge, but pre-season has been a chore.

I don’t like this game at all.

Sliders or the updates have made it worse too.

IMO, we should be playing all-pro for season 1 or people are going to quit early.

Fix the penalties. 

I just had 3 encroachment penalties turning first and goal from the 8 into a 1 yard line play.

All CPU defenders.

Right.

A cogent rant now I’m finished losing 33-0.

I’d like to think I’m not a bad player, don’t use cheese plays and I do make stupid throws and push the wrong button sometimes.

I can understand the Jaguars offense getting stuffed by the Giants, because let’s face it, it’s Bortles.

I can understand Beckham beating Ramsey to an extent.

I don’t understand how a team with the best front 7 on the game including 2 highly rated run stoppers can be ran on for 9 yards per carry. When the CPU gets tackled, it breaks the tackle or falls forward for 4 yards. I tried square and x tackles, I used different assignments, different blitzes, man and zone coverage. I watched Telvin Smith get pushed 15 yards downfield by the worst OL run blocker on the field!
At the same point, Fournette cannot break a tackle against the CPU. And the minute a gap opens after a move and then you sprint for the hole, the DL players turn into Usain Bolt to get to you.

I had 7 encroachment penalties, 3 of which resulted in first downs, all on CPU players.

The fatal flaw is the dead start on run plays, and the same happens to the QB on some pass plays, which when the rush gets there very quickly occasionally, makes it near impossible to do anything about it. The KR issue must be new as it wasn’t there when the game came out but it all but guarantees you arent getting anything on them.

Like I said before, I’m all for a competitive CPU game, I’m all for a challenging game as well, but that game and my last preseason game were near impossible to play. And I certainly wouldn’t want to play against my D in a CPU setting without using cheat plays that people find on every Madden.

Until the dead start bug is fixed, I would urge to switch to All Pro to at least give people a chance, especially with so many CPU teams this edition.

I haven't played an opponent yet - these were all gmes vs the cpu, but as things stand there are likely to be plenty of those.

I don't think moving to All-Pro is the answer: we've never done that and have normally been able to fix the game via tinkering with the sliders.

Stay with it and we will have a fiddle around to try to get a reasonable balance. Games vs the cpu should not be a walkover win: they ought to be a challenge otherwise that gets boring too for other reasons.

I think we got the balance right in Madden 18 in the end: it takes time to get the sliders right. This game is a lot different though from Madden 18 and I readily admit that so far I have been utterly useless. Whether that is me, the sliders, the game, my team or a combination of all of that remains to be seen.

Im going to see if the sliders are backwards as they are lower then normal as well. Going lower and they will be in the 20 lol.

Any feedback and ill adjust then.
Already upped user qb accuracy and lowerd cpu coverage and such. Did up the penalty sliders but probably been a mistake ...

Pretty strange game against vikes cpu, have my chances but holdings and some amazing pass coverage from  minnesota make it 7-17. 
And kicking - any chance kicking arc will be back? Honestly way too hard for me

There does appear to be an issue with games against the cpu and tru is looking into that, so you can expect some adjustments soon.

As for the lack of kicking arc, I agree that it came as a shock to me as well, but there is no option to turn it on.

The only advice I can give is this (this is my experience so far):

FGs: take the wind into account. If you move the directional stick too far left or right, it will vibrate. So move it back a bit and you should be ok. The up/down direction is more of a lottery.

Punting: depends what you want to do. I find that if you move the directional pad so that it starts to vibrate, then you will kick it out of bounds.

Higher penalties happening because it's on 75 .has to be lowered.

Higher the slider more powerful/often pens and sliders .

So if we tonned cpu down to lower 20s again across board then coy becomes no challenge again. 

Threshold definitely needs to drop.

Cpu reaction time maybe and pass coverage but can't think on top my head what they are.

Playing against cpu now - is bullshit. I`ve played 2 preseason games against cpu and it was rather easy to do. Now its like in god-mode.In my opinion iam rather solid player, but against P.Rivers and co i couldnt do anything. RIdiculous!
I dont wanna play against cpu like we have now. I dont wanna suffer against it. I know there are great players and sime time anyone cam suffer playing agaist it, but against CPU??? Sorry, but no way
btw, there is still a glitch when in any game against CPU it will block your punt,fg,pat. Really?
I have one of the best offenses in the gave and not bad D, but Bolts wiped me out

Every game  Laughing

You have 2 good WR 
TE and RB.

Your oline however not balanced,bit like mine 

You cant get by just speed anymore because Real player motion doesn't allow players to turn unrealistic on a dime.

Defensively you got 3 picks

Ok just played against the Panthers, before I start I want to say that I played very conservative! Running was ok when I ran with Elliott I was good when I ran with Smith and Austin running was Ave, still there is a slight pause when my RB gets the ball( HvH I think that can be a problem) can’t really comment on passing as I said I was very conservative! D I think was bit easy they didn’t really run a lot but passing game only got alive in the last 4min, both me and CPU got 2 holding pen against us.

Had very little issues running the ball myself in my user game.
passing seems fine other then receivers dropping a lot.

dline does seem overpowerd on certain run plays though.

upped QB accuracy and WR catch.
Also upped user INT.

can lower user tackle but will affect CPU games so not sure that is a good idea.

no penalties called i think.

no replay from TDs ......

quite frankly its a typical EA game with quite some issues.

CPU sliders are already lower then they have ever been.
i could still lower them but i think we still need to adjust to this madden first before jumping to conclusions.

alot of stuff is different then last year quite frankly.

I felt the D-Line was very overpowered when I was attempting to rush, stuffed at just about every single play. Throwing it was the only way forward. Speaking of... very hard to find open receivers but what should I expect from All-Madden difficulty?
