o ensure Madden is the best game possible, scheduled updates are deployed by the Madden Development Team to add features to the game after launch and to tune gameplay based on community feedback. Our launch updates focus on many of the issues that Madden players report to us.
We thank you for your feedback – you’ve helped us improve Madden NFL 20. We look forward to further feedback and are committed to continuing to meet your expectations. Here is a detailed breakdown of what’s included in today’s title update.
- Fixed an issue causing hit-stick tackles to transition to conservative tackles vs. ball carrier special moves when using a player equipped with the Enforcer ability.
- DEV NOTE: In last week’s title update, we made a number of updates to hit-stick windows to reduce warping and suction.
An unintended side-effect of these updates was that the window for landing a hit-stick against a ball carrier during a special move was tightened up so much that it would often result in a hit-stick attempt transitioning to a conservative tackle, and therefore not receive the boost of the Enforcer ability leading to broken tackles. We’ve resolved this by ensuring Enforcer hit-sticks will have a consistent window regardless of the ball-carrier’s actions. As a result, Enforcers will not allow broken hit-sticks when successfully landing one.
