Re: What does the awareness rating in Madden 13 affect in certain positions?

I wouldn't draft a receiver with too low an AWR rating. I did, in previous versions and accidentally once in this one, draft low rated AWR receivers and there seems to be a lot more dropped passes.

It's the first stat I scout when drafting and I don't proceed with scouting if the player doesn't score at least a C.

Awareness is important but a raw guy with great skills Is def worth picking up because awareness can be raised quickly

Re: What does the awareness rating in Madden 13 affect in certain positions?

Based on a lot of the feedback, it seems like awareness is more related to consistency than anything else. I've noticed that since the last tuner update, CPU controlled QBs (even good ones like E.Manning & M.Ryan) tend to throw into coverage (& subsequently throw more interceptions) much more often than before whether there is any pressure or not. This is even with both User & CPU Pass Defense reactions sliders moved down in the 20s. Both have awareness in the 90s so it doesn't seem to help the CPU make better decisions.

The ones saying awareness doesn't matter are probably the same people that say agility, break blocking, trucking, strength and other attributes dont matter. I've played this game long enough to know they all matter somewhat...some dont matter nearly as much as they should but 95% of them play a difference in how the player performs. Awareness plays a huge part for certain players, especially recievers i've noticed.

Re: What does the awareness rating in Madden 13 affect in certain positions?

One thing I noticed with WR with high AWR is that they work back to the ball more on hitch routes. In other words a high AWR WR will come back to the ball while the ball is in the air, creating separation between him and the defender. A low AWR WR will sit in his route where he will wait for the ball to come to him with the defender is on his back. At that point, the success of the play is dependent on their CIT rating since they are about to get hit.

I tested this when I banked aton of XP for my WR. I went into practice and did the same hitch route play over and over again. He caught the first few balls but started to drop once he got hit by the defender as he sat in his route. I quit the practice before the end so i can do the same practice again. Before doing so, I jacked up his AWR with the banked XP. Went back into practice and ran the same plays and saw a different WR where he was coming back to the ball.

Its subtle but I thought this was really cool. If you watch NFL games and hear the color commentators talk about the elite WRs, they will talk about WRs working back to the ball and catching the ball at its highest point. Steve Smith as someone who isn't a big WR but plays like one, comes to mind who does this. I think the big difference between Megatron and Stephen Hill is this. Both have similar phsyical abilities but Megatron will work back to the ball and is clean with his routes while Hill waits for the ball to come to him and uses his body to catch passes. i think AWR addresses this.

Before this test, I used to spend aton of points on CTH, SPC, and CIT. Now, I go for AWR first until I get to 85-90 AWR. then, i spend it on the rest.

Re: What does the awareness rating in Madden 13 affect in certain positions?

in m13 i have no doubt the solid icon appears faster if awr is higher, ie the more aware receiver may break off route or turn at just the right time.

i need to test awr and defence. i think prc affects reaction speed and awr how they act upon reacting. i think commiting to the pass overrides prc for a couple of seconds until awr kicks in. for example commiting to pass and they run the draw on 3rd and long. i think pa does the same to prc but awr overides if high enough with innate prc to recognise that its pa.

i do know in coach mode the qb with 80 awr achieves more with the same plays than if you edit it to 50

Actually this years Madden has made me realize that Awareness matters..
WRs with low AWR come off the ball slower.. On defense it doesn't seem to matter much

I play all my games and notice a difference no matter if its a CB, LB, or even safety on defense. Of course the best RB's, WR's, QB's play better than a scrub 90% of the time too.
