    Madden NFL 18 - Game Update 1.02 Now Available


    The Day 15 update (1.02) is now available for Madden NFL 18 as the development team worked to release it early with Hurricane Irma taking aim at the state of Florida.

    The update adds in HDR Support, but more importantly addresses some gameplay issues and concerns such as increased 'break on throw' reactions in zone coverage, decreased effectiveness of Ball Carrier special moves, increased pass rush when QB holds the ball for longer times in the pocket, and more.

    Continue on to read the full update notes courtesy MUTHEAD.

    LOL are they really making Zone defenses even more swiss cheese than they already were?

    Supposedly they are improved and back to where EA Play attendees played it in June and raved about at that time.

    Well increasing the time it takes to break on zone would seemingly make it even worse although maybe they meant decrease the amount of time but the way its worded it reads like they made zone less effective

    I got a chance to play a game post-patch and it seems better. No wide open players and did not see players way out of position. AI QB only completed 55% of his passes, much better than the 70+ I have been seeing.

    Increasing reaction times i.e. making players respond faster after the throw.
