Week 3 Game Reports

Post by GeordieAlfie on Sun 23 Sep 2018, 3:12 pm

Bills 3-13 Vikings

Once again, a fiasco of a game and quite frankly I wonder whether there is much point in my carrying on with this. Still not scored a TD and never looked like doing so. It's got to the point where I can almost predict what is going to happen when playing the cpu. 

Get anywhere near their goal line and either I can't run or get picked. 
If the cpu gets the ball within the 2 min warning before the half, a TD is almost guaranteed. 
Players on the cpu team ought to be acrobats, the way they fly through the air with ease to knock away passes or catch balls. 

I've just attached a short video. Circus catch by the cpu on their way to a TD and then a pick where 85 spd and 89 Acc Ilkoa managed to get a burst of speed his stats indicate he doesn't have to outrun Zak Jones who was ahead of him comfortably and has 90 spd and 91 acc. 

Yes I have a poor team, but felt I could compete in Madden 18* but this is a joke. These are not highlights below, but just an indication of the things that happened. Unfortunately there were not too many replays and obviously none where there were incompletions. 

*Not against NE, obviously.

I have sympathy. All we can do is keep plugging and hope our next opponent is a human who struggles more than us!

Madden 18 sliders vs cpu were so low it wasn't competitive at all unless you had a bad day yourself.

If we start going towards those types of low levels will become arcade type game . 

Me on personal level enjoying the challenge and when i do get a big play its more satisfying ,yes its frustrating at times and dodgy.Sliders are not perfect but heading right way.

I've played 3 Cpu in a row all tough just got play smart.

Just got drop it slowly is my opinion not do it dramactically.

In this case I can't think why you are finding it enjoyable. Maybe it might have something to do with the fact you have an 85 OVR team vs a 75 OVR one?

Again, the cpu might have been a doddle for you, as last season you had the top-rated team. Can't be easy now you only have the 2nd top-rated.

All very well you saying to play smart: try playing a few games with the low-rated teams and see how you do. You might do better than the likes of GeordieAlfie and others who are struggling because of your experience at the game.

If you were 3-0 with the Jets or someone, then people might take your comments a bit more seriously. Plenty still lost to the cpu last season - even you as I recall.

That said, I do still want the games to be a challenge, but not mission impossible for the less-talented and those with lousy teams.

Overall don't mean anything ,look at individual ratings and Pats have a average team,its gronk brady edelman and devin which boots team overall up.Important ratings my team not good as you think.
Drop gronk and brady ovr drops 80 ,lost brady last year and gronk same thing.
Lost due to me not cpu. 

Used to beat cpu with giants lol and tested even with your woeful browns still enjoyed was it hard and frustrating yes. But still enjoyable not perfect but hey nothing never is

Some frustrating highlights there with tipped catches.

I thought the sack on Stafford was rather odd as well: what was he doing running back with the ball in his left hand at the start of that?

Don't go and send you're opponent a message before game ends!

Rookie mistake, I had picked play to kneel again. 

I made the mistake of thinking the clock would run out.....must have got play clock mixed up with game clock. 

Anyway, went to send message, came back into game to see I had been ousted for excessive delay.

You'll get the simmed win Hammy. I did the samething vs NO and he thought I had quit with 3 secs remaining.

Not sure what this is all about as it never used to be a problem.

NY Jets 5-3 Cleveland



A pathetic excuse for a game at FirstEnergy Stadium saw the Browns once again fail to get to the end zone. The Jets moved the ball at ease at times, with Sam Darnold playing god-like at times (8 straight completions at one point) and Baker Mayfield playing exactly the opposite.

Once again, the Browns were unable to move the ball and when they did, were victims of a controversial turnover.

Unfortunately, the video below is more "highlight" than "highlights" as all you can see (the Madden highlights hardly ever show FGs) is the safety following a NYJ punt to the Browns' 2.
