Special Teams Features - Your Experience so far

on Thu Aug 25, 2016 9:29 am
I know they put a little extra effort into the special teams this year.  I was wondering what was everyone's early experience with the new features and how you've enjoyed/hated them so far.

Anyone block a punt/FG or have a punt/FG of otheirs blocked?
Anyone try the fake kicks or have them run against them?
How is the new kick meter working for everyone? Any missed FG or even Extra points?
Anyone get to access the "ice the kicker" feature?  Is it similar to NCAA?
Anyone have any success on returns?

I've only played a handful of games (and admittedly I've been super simming defense and special teams when messing around vs the CPU).  I have played about 4-5 users games and so far I have yet to see a kick get blocked (punt or FG) nor have I come close, although I did get called for running into the kicker after a FG which resulted in a 15 yard penalty enforced on the kickoff.  The new kick meter is cool, I like that you can't see the full arc when kicking and I have already missed an extra point (which was surprisingly nice to see, lol).

I completed a successful fake punt vs Posky. It was a direct snap to the FB to the outside.

Someone "Iced my Kicker" with a PAT attempt before halftime.  The game zoomed in to my kicker and brought the angle down lower. Then the kick meter disappeared after I set the power (talk about freaky).

Only a few user games without a missed XP/FG thus far. But punting is still unfair with the kick arc.
