  1. dime 1-4-6 would be great yoda,

    1. No idea. Feel free to test it and get back to us

  2. Is this stuff game tested, as in used against real opponents in online ranked play or mut??because basing its success off of practice mode or games against the cpu is not a very accurate way to test a scheme.I do like some of your ideas, although I would like to see you go more in depth, as some of these schemes can be easily countered with slide protection, blocking rb etc.

    1. Yes all our tips are game tested

  3. Tested this all day yesterday with bengals. It works great with the exception of the de coming in free… The center picked my de up every single time to the point where I just subbed in Atkins to give me extra power to beat the center and stop the run. Great defense though
