Rivalry, the very definition of the word tells you everything you need to know: the condition of being a rival or rivals; competition; antagonism. Throughout the last 7 years that TSG be has been around, we have had several top leagues over nearly every sport, people have come and gone, one thing remained the same, COMPETITION. There have been countless squabbles & complaints, great games & bad games, formation of groups & fighting amongst them, one common theme, ANTAGONISM.

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.

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.
