Madden 20 shows the % the formations/plays are actually used. So those formations with higher % were chosen. Also, each formation has a number of plays. More plays in the formation means the teams uses that formation more! And it matches the % in real-time NFL!
Furthermore, the Madden 20-21 developers use actual game films when they design the books for the game! My books are based 100% on that logic and not any personal preferences from last season! So what's in my books are what the teams actually ran. The 2021 books are end of season scheme based on the entire 2019 season plus the up coming 2020 coaching changes! So if the boys go away from 4-3 and 3-4, feel free to modify the book into a Nickel based defense as their scheme changes!
Finally, in Madden 08, if you want the teams to call more pass based Nickel, Dime coverage. Open the coaches tab and push the defensive pass/run ratio to 60% or higher!
Thanks for the feed back!
