    Cheese if that's what you want to call it.. I'll admit to that, and I see nothing wrong with it. When playing online, I run a set of very effective plays. I will abuse the AI as much as I can. I will run nanos to get pressure, and all that stuff. But what some people don't understand is that everything has a counter. All of that is legal in tournaments anyway. "Freestyle" madden is just different than "Sim" madden. I'll say it again: Everything you call cheese can be countered and stopped. That's your job.

    Is your opponent "nanoing" you? Be able to see where it's coming from and slide-protect that way, or block your RB that way. Set up plays with quick reads and passing options. Is your opponent abusing you with two routes that are tough to stop? Fill up one area with zones, and user-guard the other while sending a nano blitz of your own. Bait your opponent into throwing a pick to the guy you're user guarding. Every opponent is different, and you will win or lose based off of your ability to adjust.

    If you want to hang with some of the better players, you're going to have to abuse the AI to some extent. I enjoy playing against people who play like me.. it's my schemes vs his schemes. My ability to adjust vs his ability to adjust. It's like a chess game, except in the form of the greatest sport in the world. If you don't do these "cheesy" things, then you will complain when people do them do you, and that would make you a noob.

    If you don't play ranked and tournament games, I can see why you wouldn't want to play like that. That's fine if you don't like it, I didn't like it at first either but it grew on me. But you can't get online in a competitive setting and expect your opponent not to do everything in his power to win. There is absolutely nothing wrong with "cheesing". Everything can be stopped. If your opponent can't stop something, he deserves to get beat by it until he finds a way to stop it.

    Nanos Arnt real

    I am hardcore sim and coming from a hardcore sim guy all a nano is, is when one guy sends extra pressure and the other guy makes no adjustment to stop it.

    Any blitz can be stopped and no blitz is 100% effective.

    I just hate that people abuse Madden, and I love destroying the people who try to cheese and fail.

    I play SIM vs the computer for a franchise because abusing the AI would be pointless because the computer won't adjust to you like another human will. People abuse the AI because it is by far the most effective way to play. You might be able to wreck some bums who suck at exploiting it, but once you get higher up in the ranked skill levels (10+), you'll find it much more difficult to hang with those guys without cheesing back. It's just a different type of Madden, and I really enjoy it.

    This is also 100% true. There are no true nanos.. there haven't been for a while. The term nano blitz was created around the time of Madden 06 where you could honestly get a sack within a "nano" second. Your defender would be stacked on the Line of Scrimmage, ready to shoot the gap the second you hiked the ball. Basically, it was: Hike the ball, get sacked, shut up. There have not been any true nanos like that since Madden 09.

    You can still send blitzes that make guys come through unblocked really quickly, but it's not like it used to be. The best blitzes today still take a couple of seconds to get through, making it possible to stop. I hate bums online who scream NANO NANO NANO the second they see a guy come through unblocked and take a sack. You put hundreds of hard of work and practice into becoming good at the game, and they call you a cheater for it. **** those idiots.

    Btw CinciREborn, hit me up on XBL if you want. gt is RockyTop Fox72. Madden 13 is winding down, so it's a bit late to lab lol. But we can if you want to. I'm excited for Madden 25 too.

    I'll tell you what, looking forward to playing with the Titans in Madden 25. Our offensive line should be dominant, with CJ running wild in the backfield. I'll probably put Shonn Greene as my starting FB, just so I can do FB dives with him, but still have CJ on the field. Receivers will be nice, Justin Hunter & Britt on the outside, Kendall in the slot, Lots of speed and height there. I will miss Cook in Madden, he was a monster. Haven't looked at Walkers stats, but I think he'll fit my need for TE.

    Defense, Pollard & Wilson will help right away. Having someone who can actually tackle, although Babs wasnt horrible in Madden. Ayers/Brown on the outside last year was awesome, they should both be even better this year. Sammie adds a monster inside, hopefully we can also land Abraham for more DE.

    Can't wait to play.

    I agree with what you guys are saying, but it does seem that the odds are stacked against u when playing with TN drone running WR, erratic throws and sometimes DB absolutely refuse to to INT bad passes such as when Griff and Verner have 5-6 PD's between them and no picks C'MON!! These guys have 70 ranked catching! Really frustrated would love to Lab with either of you GT is ReubyDiggle on both consoles (pls help). I don't want to run from SFO and SEA anymore
