Madden NFL 23 Patch #7 is live and addresses gameplay, Face of the Franchise, MUT, and more. EA also announced Madden NFL 23 will arrive on The Play List for EA Play subscribers on Thursday, February 9.
Madden 23 Patch #7 Notes
- Modifications made to QB Contain logic to mitigate pass rush exploit known as the ‘Loop Blitz’:
- Only defenders on the line of scrimmage will be able to be assigned QB Contain
- If there is a pass rusher aligned outside of the contain defender, the Contain Defender will rush the C Gap to avoid putting multiple rushers in the same gap
- DEV NOTE: These changes are meant to bring balance to the ‘Loop Blitz’ exploit, while also offering more authentic rush lanes – specifically by trying to avoid putting multiple rushers in the same gap, or getting a contain player inside of an adjacent rusher. We will continue to monitor these changes in the live game and will continue to make tuning adjustments if necessary.
- Fixed an issue causing the ball to appear in the wrong hand during the Stefon Diggs signature touchdown celebration
- Addressed an issue causing the WR’s route to change from a streak to a goal-line fade after sending the receiver in motion
- General stability improvements
FACE OF THE FRANCHISE UPDATES
- Fixed an issue showing the incorrect number of remaining drills in the Flood Pass Concept side activity
- Fixed issue showing the teams reversed in the Stats/Ranks widget on the League Hub
- Fixed several instances of improper scaling on some 4K TVs
- Fixed a rare instance that could cause a non-QB position save file to revert randomly, switching to the QB position during a career.
- DEV NOTE: This fix is intended to prevent a random position-change for active and newly-created careers after the update; it will not update save files that have already been impacted because doing so could wipe out an active career in the original position save-slot. We will continue to monitor this issue in the live game and look to address any other instances that may occur.
