    Hello my brethren -

    I'm having a problem...I keep pitching the ball with players when I'm not trying to at all

    L1 is pitch right? I swear I'm nowhere near that button...but my RB or QB or whoever...will pitch the ball when nobody is near them and it makes no sense. This happens to me on normal offensive plays...and even kickoff returns. It feels like I'm having about 1 a game now...which is way too much. Last night I had two phantom pitches that led to TD's immediately.



    Any words of wisdom? that could assist me

    First thing that comes to mind is that you could possibly have a faulty controller. Somehow your L1 button is sticking or has become overly sensitive and is being tripped when pressing L2.

    I have seen you do this the last 2 times we played. I would have to wonder about the faulty controller as well. I don't think there is any other way to pitch the ball (like how you can juke, spin, etc with just the right stick) than using L1. Do you have more than one controller? Is the same controller always being used for these games?

    It has been the same controller... I do have older ones though...I'll make the controller switch for sure and see if that helps things

    It's your controller. I had the same problem when the game dropped. Brought a new one & haven't had a problem

    I have the same issue, but it's always self-inflicted.

    I have had this issue past season, but I have yet to have it happen again this season. I always thought it was a madden since I purchased a new controller when i picked up Madden 25.

    Now, who can help me fix my "pump fake when I want to throw the ball away" problem. Not sure what that's about, but It's done it to me on multiple occasions.

    It will do that if your body is turned in a montoin that the QB couldnt realisty throw the ball away under heavy pressure, most of the time on the run.

    Ahhh. Well this I didn't know. It happens when I'm scrambling away so that makes sense.
