madden 12 tips




With Madden 12 now available, we at madden-school decided to put up a few madden tips that have worked before and will help you in this year’s game as well as future games.  Below is a list of the best madden 12 tips that we could give to you without already having a copy of the game.

Speed Kills

The most common team used by madden pro’s over the last 3 years have been the Oakland Raiders.  During that time, they have never had a winning percentage over .500.  They don’t have an elite QB, they don’t have spectacular overall player ratings and they aren’t thought of as a dominant team in the NFL.  However, what they do have is lots of speed.  If you look at the raiders position by position, they have more speed than any other team in madden 11.  Based on the 2011 NFL Draft, they have acquired even more speed on both offense and defense.  Like all other madden’s speed will be the most important player rating in madden 12.

Hit up practice mode

Most gamers never spend the time to find plays that work consistently.  When you are in a game, your primary focus is winning.  When you are in practice mode, your focus shifts to finding money plays that consistently work.  In practice mode, you can play around with audibles, formations and personnel.  If you find a play that you think works, you can run the play over and over against all different kinds of defenses.  The more reps you get, the better you will be.  Practice mode also gives you the advantage of instant replay.  You can go back and take a look at why something worked or didn’t work.  Maybe you missed a wide open receiver; maybe your offensive line just missed a block.  Whatever the reason is, in practice mode you are able to sort it all out.  After a good lab session in practice mode, you should head into an online madden 12 game with an entire offensive scheme that you are comfortable with.

Find some friends to lab with

A website like serves many purposes.  We provide free madden 12 tips, bring you the latest news, sell madden ebooks, and we have a fantastic madden 12 forum.  Our madden forum has thousands of active gamers of all different skill levels looking for people to practice with.  Once you are comfortable in practice mode, you should take it to the next level and see if the plays you found in practice mode actually work against a live opponent.  If you have people to practice online with in unranked matches, you can bounce ideas off of each other and sometimes even take something that you see works well for a friend and incorporate it into your scheme.

Find a team that fits your style

One of the more common mistakes in madden is for people to use the hyped up teams even if it does not fit their playing style.  If you use a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars, you should run the ball.  If you use a team like the Green Bay Packers, you should pass the ball.  You shouldn’t take a scheme that you find on a madden forum and try to copy it.  You have to know what works best for the team that you prefer.  Play to your strengths and don’t just jump ship to a new trendy playbook.

Play Defense

Having a good defense will be so much more important than having a good offense in madden 12.  It has been that way in all of the previous madden’s and it won’t change this year.  It is so common to try to put up 50 points and just outscore your opponent but when you come across a seasoned madden gamer, you will realize that you will be lucky to get over 20 points so you will need to play some defense.  Just like at any level of football, whichever team wins the turnover battle will likely win the game.  If you have a defense that can force turnovers, you can put your opponent in difficult situations which will directly lead to more wins than losses.

Feel free to leave any other tips or tactics that you think will work well in madden 12 in the comments section below.
