NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

Ok so I am currently ranked 94th in the world in this game with a 69-36 record with 22 server error losses and I have wins over 7 of the top 10 players so my question is:

I use Trindon Holiday everywhere: QB (on options), RB, FB, WR, and TE. And some guy said that is cheesing so what do you guys think and I am not the only one who does this.

Who thinks this is cheating?

Well, it certainly isn't cheating. It's EA Sports releasing games with questionable realism factors, because they really bought out the competition.

If this opponent is caused any more than a mild distress from your style of play, he really needs to get a life. I personally wouldn't play online if you could be successful with a strategy like that, but that's EA Sports for ya.

thats the thing it doesnt always work it can be stopped easily and I run a very dynamic, versatile offense.

Re: NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

Personally, when I play I like to try and emulate the realism of the game as much as possible. When my opponents employ a strategy like yours Quake I mark them as people I don't want to play again.

Nothing personal against them, it's just that I don't play for rankings or career wins and losses, I play to try and feel the thrill of a real football simulation.

Since you are obviously proud of your ranking and your strategy is working for you I think you have no need to apologize to anybody.

Re: NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

You're not cheating.
But in my opinion, That is cheesing.

It's not as bad as the glitch exploiters but it does ruin the game for some people.

I always hated trying to get a game going and having to wait 5 minutes while my opponent adjust his rosters.

I've never been able to enjoy Madden online. Too many people go for it on 4th down in the 1st quarter, Line up the defensive end 20 yards off the line of scrimmage or throw the same damn lob play every time. Yes I know it can be countered but it just ruins the game for me.

Re: NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

yeah most of the best players look for glitches and exploit them as much as possible. I still want to play you, though...

Re: NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

The thing is, lots of people do it and it can be easily stopped because when I come out with Holiday at QB you know it is a running play (most likely option because he cant pass) So I ask the question: What is the difference between what I do and Pat White (who is practically a RB playing QB on the game.) and is the most overrated player on the game. What is the difference between Pat White at QB and Holiday at QB, PAt White can actually and pass very well at that.

Unless I'm playing someone I know, I don't bother with Madden online anymore.

Re: NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

since i switched playbooks on madden im 8-1. before that i was under .500... the guys that go for it in the fourth usually lose and get mad and quit early. then i continue vs the computer and get my win...

I'm not great at the game, but most of the guys that play like that end up losing because they eventually turn the ball over several times deep in their own territory and I make them pay for it.

I give up an average of 14pts a game and score and avg of 24 pts a game... so my D is pretty nice.


And on NCAA I usually have an answer for all that option crap. All my friends play with WVU and at first they stomped me, but now I tend to beat all the guys that play with them and Florida, and use running qb's.

Re: NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

The thing is I run different types of offenses so I adjust very quickly to how people play defense on me.

Re: NCAA Football 2008 cheating????

im not saying im better than you... especially if you're ranked in the top 100 in the world... that would be an asanine statement. but most people that lean heavily on the run react poorly to pressure off the edges and begin to force throws... then its just a matter of showing them the same pressure and switching your coverage. play man sometimes, then different zones, but keep the pressure from the same spots, unless he starts picking it up.

usually people just try to anticipate a spot to throw it to, and they will turn it over doing that...
