EA ****ed up big time! They should be forced to fix their issues and not sleep till its done. And if they can't fix it they should be fired!

Average. I had no problems with the tendency issue of the first patch. QBs were still running on me. And not just slower ones either. Sure its great they fixed that, but I'm already in year 4 offline so I really didn't care that much.

But, now they have the hurry up glitch, created playbooks are rearranged, and the special teams plays no longer automatically go to the proper play when you press Y (going to punt formations at the proper time & going to field goal/PAT blocks at the proper time). The last one is more of an annoyance, but it really bothers the hell out of me when it comes to something I was used to and was a great small feature. The hurry up sucks, especially on defense. The created playbook thing means I have to get used to my playbook all over again, and I much preferred how it was set up originally.

Looks like I'll be waiting a little longer before buying this game.

Custom playbook I have used since the release of this game is no longer usuable. When CPU no huddles, it gives my defense only one formation to select from, even though it scrolls thru the formations, it's still only 1.

I have also noticed WRs not even trying to block corners on some (not all) designed run plays. I also had a safety not even attempt a tackle as the RB ran right by him. These are new problems since the patch. What a joke!

My custom playbooks I've spent hours on are now screwed up.

No huddle is now messed up.

I'm still getting the "Transfer Failed" error, so my online dynasty is stuck in Bowl Week and can't advance the season.

Thumbs Down from me.

Great EA. Another month before I get to play some football. Why even BOTHER!

Good.

In the limited testing I've done I've seen less aggressive DBs especially when they defend the hitch or comeback. Much more realistic now. If your timing is right you will beat the CB before he can turnaround and react most of the time. This is how it should be.

Running the ball is easier but not drastically so. Quick slider adjustment and I'm back in biz.

Gameplay feels smoother albeit a bit slower, but the slower part could be placebo on my part.

Coverage slider seems to work now!!!! Very nice.

The tendency fix is much appreciated. I played against Griffin of Baylor and he ran crazy on me. However I must note that the Def for HUM and CPU seem to react more slowly to scrambling QBs. This is helping rushing yrds go up so adjust sliders accordingly. On defense it forces me to take control of a defender and be aggressive to stop the scrambling QB. I'm using spy a lot more also. All welcome additions.

The No Huddle glitch prevents me from giving a great vote. That was a huge disappointment, but not a game killer. The custom playbook issue is unfortunate as well I feel the pain of the other forum members due to this, although I don't use this feature. All in all I am very happy with the patch and also happy with the info I get from this forum.

Yeah I'm annoyed by the fact that when it's 4th down and I want to punt and I hit the triangle button for special teams plays it defaults to field goal. Would anyone really line up for a 98 yard field goal? It's cost me a few time outs...it's not the end of the world, it doesn't break the game for me but it's a small example of the lack of attention to details that has plagued EA football games in the last 5+ years.

This sounds great! Cant wait to fire it up and get going

I'm glad they fixed a few things with the patch and the tuner. The player tendency glitch and the progressions issues were my biggest gripes. With that said, these should never of been bugs in the first place.

So they release a patch that fixes two things, but it breaks two other things. That's not what patches are supposed to do. Because of that I can't rate this any higher than bad.

I voted great. The only thing I noticed is that running was easier. Just adjusted sliders. Of coarse when you don't have default sliders and a patch comes out you can't expect everything to work exactly right. The game plays much better to me. The player tendances was a huge deal for me and it's awesome that they fixed it. I don't run no huddle much so don't care about that problem. I am loving the game even more now. It was already great to me.
 
# 12 xirdneh132 @ 09/09/11 08:13 PM
My main frustration is the custom playbooks because it doesn't let me get out of some formations or deselect some plays when I'm creating plays.

What in the hell did EA do right? I asked this in another thread but it got closed by the all-knowing, all-powerful Internet Forum Moderators.

So I ask this as genuinely as I can; what did EA do RIGHT?
Fixed player tendancies, fixed super LB, improved gameplay. These were really all that was wrong other than online. You can go to EASports.com and see the list. Everything on the list seems to be fixed. If you still have that much of a problem then maybe you just don't like EA football games. I love the game. If I hated it I wouldn't have bought it or would have traded it in.

I was thinking the first line also. I don't see how someone can vote great unless they are not playing dynasty. This custom playbooks thing is even worse than before. And if you are playing dynasty I dont see how anyone can vote anything but bad. The custom playbook aspect has made dynasty much better because you can choose the exact style you wanna play with the exact plays. I dont even wanna touch the game anymore if its isnt trying to find someway to get a custom playbook to work. So my three years of dynasty is pretty much wasted until this is fixed.

No that wasn't all that was wrong-- freezing was huge for some folks like me on OFFLINE, so far no issues on the freezing, but it's only been a day, we will see, right now I give them average

This is for the xbox.

Yes now defense is messed up on defensive side of no huddle. Was in 3-3-5 put me in the nickle for no huddle. During kicking situations on offense when pressing specials teams button you will get field goal all the time. I was on my 5 yard line to punt and gave me field goal option. Something was done in the ranking system. I was number 3 prior to the patch, now I won 2 ranked team games and went down by two rankings. Won against Washington #15 (close game won by 4 points) and Navy #23 (by 30 points). Wisconsin beat an unknown and ranked #18 took my spot from #6 to #3. In fact the entire top five ranking was changed. Just something to be aware of.

On the menu screen seams to flow allot smoother.

Since this patch has made it impossible to run my schools offense I voted "bad"; if "abysmal" was an option I would have voted for that.

Exactly. I deleted the patch since I don't play online, so I'm back to normal I guess. The whole point of Oklahoma's offense is to be able to go from 5-WR to Ace to Pistol to Trips without huddling and with the exact same players... they do it all the time in real life, but the patch ruined that.
 
# 19 tpeserik @ 09/10/11 02:27 PM
So I won't get to play the patch until tomorrow night. What's the new issue with no-huddle? And has anyone tried using custom playbooks in road to glory? Previously you could change the team's playbooks before you started a RTG but if you selected a custom playbook the game would freeze. Every other default playbook would work fine. I'm playing on the 360 if it makes any difference.

Has the away white jerseys NOT getting dirty been fix or going to be fixed? It seems the jersey and field degradation is NOT as good as it was in NCAA11.
