Patch 1.03 released!!!
I will give an update & my impressions in a bit.
i just hope it cuts down the "i" Word
well.........trie 5 times to get a game in and the servers dropped us before kickoff or about 2-3 minutes in.
So far I have noticed 2 things in the kicking game.
First the kick meter for kickoffs, has been severly slowed down. . I have no idea if the speed depends on how good your kicker is but the meter when I kicked with Colts Pat McAfee was so slow, I missed timed it and kicked it to the corner barely in-bounds.
Next, it seems the kickoff blocking is better. On my first return I got to almost the 20 before anyone was near me. Dont know if this was an exception or the new rule.
I got about 10 "Busy server messages" while trying to get a game in. I got frustrated and gave up with the boots and the horrible lag when we did connect.
I may have noticed another thing. It may be just me but it seems the LB play is a little better. Reacting better and they seem to be shedding blocks a little better.

* Fixing a bug to allow friend invites to ranked games
* Generally making pass defense more effective
* Reducing number of broken tackles
* Fixing user blitz exploit(s)
* Tuning injuries
* Tuning CPU & GameFlow play-calling logic
* Improving play action blocking
* Improving kick return blocking
* Improving online connectivity issues with kick meter lag, media streaming, etc.
* Random stability improvements
* Miscellaneous gameplay balancing
Never ever have to worry about missing a kick now.
Im finding the game is playing a little smoother and the players reactions are better. This is all-pro online. I have not tried all-madden diffulculty yet.
Sounds like a switch is coming in Week 8 back to All-Pro
I think that would be a good idea.
The lag seems to be better and player reaction and feel is DEFINITELY improved.
Cant believe Im going to say this but at one point it reminded me of Madden 10.
jeez jeremy, your getting me very excited. I may try a ranked game during lunch haha
Just when I was getting hang of all-madden...
What about psychic dbs in man coverage(DBs cutting before WR)? I think that was my biggest complaint.
It is a better game now. Still has its flaws but the defense is a little better, CBs seem to react better and actually play the football.
The run game is better too. Dont know exactly what they have done but the runs where you were getting 0 or 1 yard have now turned into 3 yard gains.
I have played 3 online ranked games and me nor my opponent have scored 30+ pts.
I havent seen it yet Bates.
I think the run is helped by fixing user blitzes? I am not positive, but it seemed to hurt the running game the most when blitizers killed my RB as soon as he got the ball.
* Fixing user blitz exploit(s)
100% power kickoff will only get ball to goal line
Depends on your kicker. And speaking of kicking, I'm disturbed by the fact that you say it has improved so much you will NEVER miss a kick again on All-Pro.....
If you are having disco or connectivity issues please go in and delete everything Madden 11 related from your PS3 HD.
Then re-download the online pass, and the new patch and you should be all set.
you have to see the new meter, it looks the same, but the bar literally crawls super slow, this was all-madden
Okay, with the patches and such, I definitely like all pro better. I liked AM before the patch, though. While difficult, the bugs made it play like all pro.
Now, AM is AM in my eyes. If we stick with AM throughout, I'll be fighting for that #1 pick for sure.
You will have to fight me!
bates that is because we are on all pro my friend
Just in case somebody from EA actually reads this, the kickin is absolutely ridiculous now. It is so slow you will ALWAY be able to get 100% power and 100% accuracy even on all madden.
This is awful.
It's like they are saying 'fuck you. . .you want it easy, here ya go."
This is truly horrendus.
The kicking was fine the way it was other then the lag it had in online games.
odds of someone from EA reading this is about .001% Thinking about it I dont think I missed a FG last madden, regardless of the speed of the meter (or right trigger)
It still sucks regardless of whether what it was last version, and whether or not EA reads this. Games are supposed to get better with patches. This sucks the big one right here. Fucking awful.
