    How to Ball Hawk in Madden NFL 13

    http://www.maddentips.com/madden-tra...-ballhawk-101/



    Madden Training Camp How To Intercept Passes Ballhawk 101


    Ballhawk in Madden NFL 13 means that anytime you hold Y (Xbox) or Triangle (PS3) your defender will try and make the best play possible on the ball.

    BallHawk Madden 13 TipsIn Madden NFL 12, holding Y would just let you make a catch, but you still had to get into position with the left stick. Now the game will help you get to the spot of the ball as well, very similar to the defensive assist that you get by holding A (Xbox) or X (PS3).

    The best way to intercept the ball last year was to strafe and get to the front of the catch circle as seen in our video on the EA Sports Blog

    This season you want to be trailing the WR and you will leap up and snag the ball using ballhawk. Interceptions will be more prevalent than last season and it should make it easy for newer players to pick passes and go to the house!

    Does that ballhawking button work for offensive players as well? Meaning will it make the best possible play on the ball that it can?

    So let me ask you this, if you are still using the left stick while holding down Y, will the game override your controls and move the player to the spot it chooses?

    To put it simply, once I use "ballhawk, will I no longer have control of my player until I release the button? Or will I need to make sure to release the left stick if I intend to use the "ballhawk" feature to ensure it works correctly?

    you completely lose control... just like D assist except you always go for the pick

    Or sure about this b/c I thought once you move the left analog, it comes out of the " Ball Hawk " animation. If Sgibs could answer this, surely would be helpful.

    I wanted to know this my self so I experimented... once the ball is in the air and you hold down Y you lose control of your player... I am sure 100%... now that is the demo.. it could change by retail I dont know

    the way i see it, if the defense is in a position where the `ballhawk` feature could make a play on the ball - thats probably a pass that you shouldnt have thrown - and if you end giving up a pick thats on you regardless if the player made a complete user pick or used the CPU assisted ballhawking system...

    Although i would like to see some upside for USER CONTROL PLAYS (if done correctly...) - there should be some incentive for player to improve their skills and to risk using their skills to make a play.... Maybe players jump higher - or have an increase to their catching skills when they make a user play for the ball...

    So the thing to do is hit B then Y on defense if ball is in the air to a player you are notcovering. We will have to be passing to open wr's that if B Y is hit it won't matter.

    I don't now guyz ea could have hit the nail on the head with this one only if a patch comes when u have to get ur own angles or positions... Think about it how many times have u tried to pick a should have been made user pick on a deep ball only to get there and at perfect timing u wanted your guy to jump and attempt a pick only for your guy to just hit u with the tippy tose hands up cuz his angle was a little off or u tried to swat it but ur guy just did the thing where he he just fan at the player.... I don't know about the full blown auto pilot but it seems as a win win if they patch it where's u gotta get your own position on the play which can call for a strategic read by you as a lb or FS

    Gotta see how this works out for scrubs before a make a call on it... But a positional/ get ur own angle patch is required for this feature to be atleast considered successful
