Last week, EA released a new title update for Madden which included some major changes to catching, pass coverage, as well as to the blocking mechanics of the game.

Today, EA released another update, this time a tuner to tweak some other pieces of the game. In a note to player, the Madden development team made these changes to “provide some further balance to previous improvements and fixes.”

Here is what to expect in the newest tuner coming to Madden 19:

New Madden 19 Tuner

Simulation

  • Reduced the stamina penalty when using Acceleration boost and/or One Cut to lengthen the time necessary before fatigue sets in on a per-play basis
  • 30% increase to defensive run-block disengage angles (this is 30% back in opposite direction from previous tuning made in October Title Update)

Competitive

  • Decreased Interception Threshold to a value of 60 from 75 – any defender with a catch rating of 60 or higher will never drop an INT when in open space
  • 60% decrease to offensive success chance for multi-player aggressive catches
  • 30% increase to defensive run-block disengage angles (this is 30% back in opposite direction from previous tuning made in October Title Update)

Tuning across all Gamestyles (Simulation, Arcade, Competitive)

  • 20% increase to ball carrier fumble chance when using the ‘Aggressive Ball Carrier’ Coach Adjustment
