The committee have been deciding the best way forward for the league in light of the difficulties with Madden 19.
In the past, we have always prided ourselves on the fact that this is an All-Madden league: it has been that since we started up back in Madden 10. However, some have suggested that perhaps we might attract more members to the league if we reduced the level down to All-Pro. Longer-term owners will however attest to the fact that this league often used to be full, even with people on a waiting list. So, I have always baulked at this in the past, but I have come to the conclusion that continuing to do the same thing is not working for many in the league.

Some seem to be coping with the skill level, even against the cpu, whereas others are getting thei butts whipped. I've always maintained that games against the cpu should be a challenge, but I don't want people leaving because of games vs the cpu that are too tough.

So, I have decided that you all can have the final say on what we try next, from the following options:

1. We leave things as they are on All-Madden and continue to adjust the sliders
2. We return all sliders to 50 (they won't necessarily stay there) and drop the level to All-Pro
3. We leave the sliders as they are now and drop the level to All-Pro.

Whatever we decide, I want  to put this into place with effect from Sunday night. So you will only have 2 days to vote. Don't waste your opportunity.

Comments in the thread welcome.

We also have almost a half empty league. We even have one division with no owners at all. 

So who’s helping to recruit new blood?

Well I'd love to see the level dropped. I just can't have a competitive game against the cpu. My QB throws are wild, particularly on a 3rd down - so far wide of the intended receiver it's a joke. On defense, the cpu gives you a bit of hope on 1st and maybe 2nd down, but then makes an unbelievable completion more often than not on 3rd down.

Think for sake of the league it may be time to drop just for now.

As much as I hate it.But when all pro becomes a challenge do we drop again #Justsaying
Interesting to see what players in other leagues Madden level is.

But maybe if they ones that keep complaining ,let us try drop the sliders drastically like last season then we can stay on all Madden maybe till bye or they win easy.

Your QB ratings are not great that's why your missing.
But also if your leading to much or which throwing choice your picking,also a throwing under pressure rating plays a part now.

That's my experiences from Brady to rooks to mettenburger

QB user slider is drop a bit but that's to balance those top Qbs being able to complete everything.
Example me using Brady.

But again I say for good of league just for now ,think we may have too.

Also sliders being kept the same if dropping to all pro.

Won't work as they are all Madden sliders as there based on that difficulty.

It will, because that's one of the options. Irrespective of the result, it doesn't mean that the sliders will be left as they are on either level. It's a trial and error thing - but appears to be more challenging this year than ever to get it right.

As a lead moaner...

Having played a third user vs user game, which finished 10-0 to me. I’d say there are still issues that need fixing. Running is near impossible but it’s not really the fault of the difficult level, more the dead start runs.

Passing is possible but I think the coverage can almost be too good. 

I would potentially like it lowered, but not to the extent where it makes the elite players less elite. We don’t want to go back to a league that has 97 speed WRs beating the likes of Ramsey and Peterson just because they’re quick. I had no issue with Tyreek Hill beating Ramsey because he’s fast and a top WR.

Potentially, we could keep All Madden and keep going with the slider fixes for another few games before reverting to All Pro for a season.

could the freezing when receiving the bell on runs or k8ck offs be down to threshold or game speed? Maybe go back to 50 and normal

I cant understand about people struggling with run game. This is the most successful Madden I have had with the run game. 

I find passing just as hard as I have always found it. But it's down to what my QB  and myself are capable of. So I have adjusted to broaden my passing plays.  

I am not that good at Madden, in fact probably one of the worst players in the league. Maybe its just me but I don't think its any harder this Madden. The only thing I have noticed is that in 1st game v. CPU Trubisky was on fire for first half. In 2nd CPU game v. Falcons Ryan wasn't that good.....some cracking 3rd down throws but nothing overly CPU ish. 

Big thing though was that I was behind late in game against Falcons and came back to win. Now in other Maddens if you are behind in game V. CPU you usually had no chance of winning...well I didn't.

I have to say this is a Madden I don't much care for, especially the running game and the way defenders often react as though they are on their way to the HoF.
The running game I think smacks of arcade: if you don't juke and spin then you're not going to get very far.
