Special Teams May Never Get Sufficient Attention in Madden

For as long as I’ve been covering sports video games the neglect of special teams in the Madden series has been readily apparent. Such a huge part of the NFL goes without much of anything being done to represent the aspect of the game properly. Tinkering with kick meters has been about the only thing that has changed over the years.

So on Saturday when Kam Chancellor stunned everyone by perfectly timing and jumping over the offensive line on back-to-back field goal attempts naturally many wondered would something like that ever make it to Madden? If it is being attempted in NFL games why wouldn’t it be possible in the video game? Of course within minutes the idea was dismissed with a wave of the hand by one of the developers.

TSG M15 CF, Season 3 End of the Year Review

Falcons (Don) – Being known as the richest man in the TSG family coach Don Figures really hasn’t showing anything else in m15 except that he knows how to make money. After trading away franchise QB Matt Ryan. The present and future looks bleak for Altanta Falcons and with coach Don at the helm will the lowly Falcons ever become a factor? Odds are….NO!

 

Rams (Blky) – Coach Blky a man of very few words. Except from his rants every now and then in media sessions.  Coach Blky hasnt really shown any signs of becoming a force in an ultra competitive NFC West but with a possible number one pick on the horizon Coach blky is going to need more than talent hes going to need dedication if he ever wants to become a household name in TSG.

 

Colts (GBBACK) – The Colts have become the coaching the carousel of TSG with 3 different coaches in 3 seasons and a 4th now prior to the draft. The Colts lands at the bottom of our list, with a boat load of talent in Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton will anyone ever bring the colts back to there glory days?

 

Bears (Sskills40) –  Hard work and dedication are the words heard echoed through the bears training faculties still no wins have come on the field. After a season one fire sale the bears are continuing to retool and rebuild an offense and defense that ranked last in the league. The 3-13 bears are looking to change it fortune this coming up year but with a new coach can they reach new heights or will we see the bears in the bottom half of the league for the next few seasons.

Madden 15 Desync Issue Patched Again (Possibly Fixed)

In a server-side update for Madden NFL 15 released earlier this month EA Sports claimed to have fixed a desync issue in head-to-head games within the mode. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case and the rate of desyncs only increased to the point that there was no reason even to continue playing in leagues until it was actually addressed.

Yesterday the company pushed out another server-side update that has locked to the “Camera Toggle” option to ON. So now it’s set to OFF in the settings it will be off against the CPU but not in any H2H games. Supposedly this will solve the majority of the desyncs that were taking place. While this may reduce the number of desyncs, and hopefully dramatically so, it probably won’t eliminate them completely. There have been desyncs in the past even when both players had the camera toggle turned on.

In early testing a handful of games have been completed without incident. That’s far too small a sample size to say anything definitively but it’s at least a good sign that it may be worth giving things another chance.

One complaint this has now caused relates to the d-pad being used for pre-snap adjustments. With camera toggle forced on users who prefer to have it off and utilize the “Strategy Pad” for those functions are no longer able to do so. No indication has been given whether a patch will fix the desyncs and allow people to have the toggle turned off if they so choose or if this has been deemed to be the long-term solution.

Desyncs Continue to Plague H2H Games in Madden NFL 15 Online Franchise

You may remember a recent declaration from EA Sports that they had fixed a desync issue in Madden NFL 15’s Online Connected Franchise head-to-head games. Unfortunately that hasn’t turned out to be true at all. They’re still widespread and severely damaging the enjoyment and long-term potential of online leagues.

Suggestions on how to avoid a desync have ranged from making sure the two users have the same visual settings (tackle cone, kicking arc, ect) to locking into a single camera angle. Ultimately there doesn’t seem to be a common thread causing it. Maybe it happens more when the settings aren’t the same between both sides, but desnycs are happening when they are a match and sometimes don’t occur when they aren’t. I’ve played games through to completion with camera toggle on and switching back and forth between the various angles throughout, yet last night with all settings the same experienced a desync with under two minutes remaining.
