NCAA Football 11 News Post

Check out the new NCAA Football 11 blog, discussing real assignment AI.



Quote:
"The Read Option is one of the most popular, and with the right personnel one of the most lethal plays in college football. The í05 Longhorns won the National Championship with little more than the Read Option, but weíve never felt that the play had reached its full potential in the NCAA Football series. With that in mind we went back to the drawing board and completely rebuilt the play from the ground up. First you will notice that we use our new zone blocking matchups. The threat at the point of attack is always priority number 1. So if a safety wants to creep up into the box to try to blitz that guy will get targeted, we want you to get to the outside. Working your way down the line you will notice how covered offensive linemen get help from their uncovered teammate. As for the backside defensive end, he is intentionally left unblocked; thatís your read to make. If you donít know how a Read Option play works then Iíll break it down for you right now so you can start running for glory as soon as you get the game."

I was just about to post this.

Yeah the running game has been broke since the move to the newer consoles. This blog makes it look like they have completely fixed the running game. Hopefully it's not overdone and we are racking up 300 rushing yards every game.

Nice, the way that LG from Alabama turned up field looked so nice.

Awesome.

A lot of people are going to be happy about this. Not only does the Blocking AI look spot on, but the running animations of the OL and Running Backs look soooo much better. Maybe its just the speed, but when they compare it directly to 2010, theres no way you couldnt see a difference. If the CPU running for actual yards, and not away from the defender is actual truth, than I will be excited. Ill hold my breath for now.

The Dive play looked like a thing of beauty. Pulling guard finally understands his responsibility.

But, I cant help but wonder if run blocking will be too effective.

They fixed the CPU always trying to run outside. Thank God!

Edit: Moylan, I was wondering about all the Syracuse pics as well.

Good blog, let's just hope offense isn't overpowered this year now.
 
# 9 TracerBullet @ 04/30/10 05:25 PM
Wonder what this will look like against the 3-4 now.

That looks really damn good. I'm concerned about the pass blocking. I think the run blocking is going to be really damn good this year in NCAA and Madden.

That's my biggest concern now. Not with passing but running. I loved NFL 2k4 for it's time but I wouldn't want those kind of rushing games again. They were hell to deal with although I developed my own system to limit people to under 100 yd games, but prior to that ohhh my gawd!!!

I'm wondering about the pass blocking as well. since I'm going to be playing as Texas Tech, I'll be seeing the pass quite often. pass blocking in 10 was terrible(blocking in general, but the pass block killed me more playing as TTU).

I also hope this wont make the rush offense too powerful, and I hope that the CPU improvement really do work. I'm tired of always being the #1 rush defense in the nation. lol

Looks good. I dig.

true, but that's nothing new with this series

Looks great! Maybe now I won't have to pass all the time in my OD.

Since Syracuse has the best Communications school in the Nation(sorry Northwestern), quite a Few Syracuse Grads work in the Video Game Industry. But you are Both Wrong, There is simply not enough Syracuse, they should be in Every Screenshot.

Okay, NCAA has really really stepped up it's game this year. I feel like they are being more "sim" than Madden is being right now. I don't really care about gameflow and how they talk about how that is more sim, I feel it's catered to the newbie/casual player but are just calling it more sim. Well, you don't see Madden breaking down specific plays and showing how they are run. Madden devs are scared this will scare away newbies and casual game fans. I am really loving NCAA right now.

Looked great. Only concern for me is how slow reacting the safety was in the very last video(LSU/Alabama). I know there could be a multiple of reasons why, but hope its not a sign of things to come.

Would love to see some blogs dedicated to the defensive side of the ball.
