Default Madden '12

Didn't see a Madden thread yet, apologies if there was and I missed it.

So Just started up my franchise as our beloved Donkeys, and played the first preseason game.... Man, Tebow is one inaccurate passer as I have ever seen in Madden. Unless those feet are settled, you're guaranteed to sail one out. DOOM and Von are great though.

It looks to me as the game made a lot of improvements, but why they felt the need to change the kick meter is beyond me..... the new one is horrible.

Anyone else get a game in yet?

I'll be getting it as soon as I leave the office.

If anybody wants to play on Live let me know, I'm usually the Broncos (surprise) but am willing to play as another team.

Hearing the Eagles are ridiculous in that game. Kinda looking forward to all the changes in Madden.

But I have yet to take the beloved Buffaloes to a national championship in NCAA, so Madden must wait.

I don't even know that I'll accept any games against the Eagles. I mean, they were ridiculous last year, at least in terms of being able to abuse the system.

I don't play vs certain teams Online. Eagles being one of them.

Broncos are actually serviceable in the game.

2 QB System with Orton/Tebow. I'm still seeing how VON DOOM works as a pass rush, and if our D will be decent.

I finished my Madden 11 Career with like 5.3 points allowed per game, so I assume it could only be better.

Btw, some Sneaky good players Denver has: Both Rookie TE's are my starters, and Quinn (to be competitive) is still playing for me as a FB.

The 2 TE Singleback Set with "Smash" in it, is NASTY for Denver with 2 fast TE's.

I heard they had to call it Madden 05 this year because the RB on the box couldn't count all the way to 12.

Rahim Moore is a stud. Franklin is a stud. Miller is a superstud, and probably will go up (btw, I haven't gotten the first update yet, my internet gets set up in hours)

However, watchout, because Champ still is rated high, but is mediocre and gets absolutely owned by DHB and Jacoby Ford.

But it is MADDEN after all... So getting ****ed raw is expected.

They also made 1 cut running awesome. Holes seem to open up at different places (like in real life) and you gotta make YOUR cut, not just go to the same spot every time.

Also throwing mechanics are greatly improved. If you're scrambling around you can't just launch a bomb instantly.

this is what I'm most excited for, I used to love running the ball in madden but ever since they made the new engine for the 360 and ps3 its been all but impossible except for a few select plays and I hate calling the same few plays over and over again.

I got the limited edition which comes with an autographed Marshall Faulk card for some reason.

I like that this years version allows you to integrate your fantasy football to your Madden playing (if you use NFL.com for fantasy). So basically you can watch your fantasy scores on Sunday while playing Madden....I guess.

Running is practical but still not nearly as effective. You totally can grind it out though with Moreno. He's a bit slow though, but he sheds tackles well.

Custom Playbooks ROCKS. However it doesn't like fall into the other plays I.E. I have 3 "formations" of nickels... Really annoying.

Agree.


I don't play online at all - offline franchise for me all the way. I'm gonna pickup Madden 12 in a week or 2 after they put up the first patch. Gives me time to get a draft class ready in NCAA 12

It's much improved from last year. You can't scramble and throw accurately really anymore. Long passes require windups depending on your QB (TEBOW TAKES FOR ****ING EVER).

Ive been getting sacked a lot going for deep balls that I used to be able to get because of the arcade nature.

The Sim part of the game is WAY better. Dline plays like they should, ends contain decently, corners come up and play the run/qb scramble, from what I've seen.

I have to get used to playing less arcade-y for sure. My playbook is changing to much more conservative single-back sets.

Also the "momentum" factor is kinda cool. Whenever I'm down on momentum I just switch to some power running and try and regain it with a blitz or two, play conservative.
