TRUZZ THE PROCESS: The QB Draw that has taken over the Madden 21 meta has been nerfed

It tackles the QB Draw meta, efficiency of Outside Zone and Stretch runs, dropped interception frequency, RAC issues, and more.

Let's first go over the highlights.

Highlights

  • Superstar KO adds Endless Run, a new game mode where players compete to stack the highest win streak in the game's history.
  • Fixed an issue where teammates could knock another's interception out of their hands.
  • Decreased penalties for defenders intercepting in traffic, which will reduce number of dropped interceptions.
  • Outside Zone and Stretch runs will yield less average yards per carry on Competitive All-Pro and All-Madden difficulties.
  • QB fumble frequency increased.
  • QB draw movement slowed down and more restricted.
  • RAC catches tuned to drop less frequently, range for defender breakups increased.
  • QB Slide moved to Tap X/Square, QB Dive moved to Hold X/Square.
