How do you look at Madden? When you sit down in front of the game for the first time, are you looking at it to find the latest gimmicks or are you testing real football offensive and defensive schemes?
Over the years we have always provided Madden football strategies instead of chasing after the latest glitch or gimmick. This has helped us remain the leader in this industry. While others focus on gimmicks we like to focus on ways to make your gaming experience better and build a solid foundation you can use year in and year out.
The good thing about focusing on strategies instead of gimmicks is that we can still show you the gimmicks but also how to handle and contain them. Being prepared means leaving no stone unturned. You can’t provide great Madden strategies and avoid dealing with gimmicks. We just don’t make that the primary thing we look for when sitting down to breakdown Madden 12.
What is the difference between a Madden Strategy and a Madden Cheat or Glitch?
There needs to separation of the two in the Madden community. Every madden tip, madden strategy or madden cheat has been viewed in a negative manner by the sim community and even EA Sports at times. The problem with that is that they are not the same at all.
Let’s first look at what is considered a Madden cheat. A cheat or gimmick is something that is used to exploit the game. This can be something as small as swapping in personnel out of position in order to create an unfair mismatch. Or it could be as flagrant as quick audibling and formation flipping in order to create a broken run or pass play. These little gimmicks, published on the Internet as tips or strategies have blurred the line of what is a strategy and what is a cheat. These are cheats and need to be called what they are.
On the other hand a Madden strategy is plan designed to get you to a desired place, much like the definition of strategy. Nowhere is there a mention of shortcuts or cheats. You can’t have a plan and fast-forward to the end result. Our Madden strategies use real football tactics or schemes in order to build your knowledge of football so that you can be successful no matter what version of Madden you pick up.
For example, the passing game has taken over real NFL football as well as Madden football. One of the easiest route combinations that beats both zone and man coverage is 2 vertical routes with a in or out route being run directly beside it. This is something that is used in all levels of football that also translates to Madden.
We would list this as a Madden strategy as it uses real football tactics in order to get a desired result. Run the coverage off to get spacing for the In or Out route. If you were to look up Madden strategy and find both examples listed, which one would you consider a Madden Strategy or a Madden Cheat? If you can tell the difference then you can see how we are unique in what we do and have always put your development as a Madden player in the forefront.
