    The Art of user catching

    I have never use this in any version of a football game. I will only use it in user games because I feel like i would be cheating the cpu which is why I never use it. But lately in user games I have played my opponents have been coming up with some amazing catches so I want to incorporate it into game. So im looking for any tips or points you guys may have.

    with the way user knockdown is this year its not worth it, just hit the ole defense knockdown button and you will knock it down 90% of the time, as as setting them up hit triangle when open ..and profit..dunno how else to explain user catching its a practice thing

    I only use it for deep balls. You really don't have time on short passes. I usually let the CPU catch. User catching can turn in to rocket passes if you don't watch it.

    Really? Why do you feel that way? I dont mind user catching at all. Its not easy and the defense has the opportunity to do the same. Only better feeling than a user pick is new p***y.

    That was a serious level skip by Ryno.

    To answer your question Blaza about the gayness of user catching, I've just seen it abused too much. I subscribe to the school of out-thinking my opponent, calling good plays, mixing up my plays, and on passing finding the open receivers, not just heaving it up and relying on stick skills to make up for bad decisions.
    Its chess vs. whack-a-mole.

    I see the logic, but doesn't the defense have a chance to make a play on the same poorly thrown ball?

    IMO any time somebody says "stick skills" they automatically lose :thumbsup: i also throw up in my mouth a little.

    leave that for that truth schmuck with the backward hat that has his name on it.

    for me user catching is OK every once and a while, but like anything else if your game is based around it, and you do it a ton, its not sim. (if we were supposed to be doing that the game would switch us to the receiver as soon as the ball was thrown :thumbsup:)

    What's wrong with the term "stick skills"? Would you prefer "high level of manual dexterity"?

    stick skills should only be used to refer to a lady's oral dexterity ...

    gotta side with the user catch on this one. i just want to be able to control as much of the game as possible. when both guys switch off i think its great trying to fight for that bal with your opponent! with that being said if there is a bug in the game or something where user catching was a glitch then i definately understand, but at least IMO i havent seen anything like that.
