    I wanted to start this thread and fill it will as much info as I can. New controls and general strategy.

    Madden 16 Strategy guide


    L1/LB - High Point Throw
    This is the "High Throw" mechanic. This will aim your throw above the receiver. It has NOTHING to do with Ball Trajectory or Arc (You can throw a Bullet, Touch or Lob pass using L1). It is also less accurate than a normal pass. You will get an on screen prompt for a High throw.

    L2/LT - Low Point Throw
    This is will cause you to attempt to throw the ball to the lower half of your receiver. Again - NOTHING to so with Trajectory or Arc. It is less accurate than a normal pass. You will get an on screen prompt for a Low throw.

    Ball Trajectory is controlled by the passing button

    This means whatever button you use to throw to the receiver is what controls trajectory. Hold the button for Bullet, tap the button for Lob, or double-tap/medium hold (EITHER works) for a Touch pass. You will get an on screen prompt for all three throw types.

    The Left Stick controls lead/behind throws

    So whichever way you are pushing the L Stick ONCE THE THROW ANIMATION BEGINS is where you will throw the ball on the field in relation to the WR. If the WR is running a Go route (straight down the field) - Push up and you get a ball down the field, left goes to the receiver's left, right to the receiver's right, and back to throw behind the receiver. This will change as the receiver changes direction). There is no on screen prompt for throw leads.
