EA released a new title update this morning that addresses a few major gameplay issues. Here are the patch notes from EA:
To ensure Madden is the best game possible, title updates are deployed by the Madden Development Team to add features to the game after launch and to tune gameplay based on community feedback. Here is a detailed breakdown of what’s included in the latest title update now live in Madden NFL 18.
- Substantial reduction to fake-outs for user controlled defenders when defending ball carrier special moves
- Slight reduction to fake-outs for AI controlled defenders when defending ball carrier special moves
- Addressed an issue that was causing some AI controlled ball carriers to move slowly and/or not perform special moves
- Tuned to decrease range of width on kickoffs to address the kickoff exploit that could force returners out of bounds inside their own five-yard line
Developer Note: Players have given us feedback that they’d like more control when clicked-on to a defender in pursuit. We wanted to provide more opportunities for both user-controlled and AI-controlled defenders to make tackles vs. jukes and spins.
