Probably obvious he didn't just run two plays. We're talking about it in the other league and what other people are experiencing, and there seems to be some common agreement that they noticed better reaction time when lowering at least the reaction slider.
It may just be an issue of not understand what the hell the sliders actually do when increased/decreased. If you think about it, increasing the value in the reaction time would seem to be that it's increasing the actual time/buffer, even though we think that "higher = more hard".
I don't know, just something that I think is worth bringing up because of the implications of playing on All Pro/Madden and moving the sliders in the wrong direction. Something that can be run in the test league if there is enough interest/time to try it out
what's even more frustrating is all it takes is a little detail field box that describes what the slider does, and what increasing/decreasing means. Then again that's assuming EA has a grasp of what the sliders actually do.
