Madden 21: How to set sliders for the most simulation experience

Madden 21 has been out for less than a week, and despite some tough fan criticism, the gameplay edits have been well received.

If you are playing and looking for a way to set the sliders to the most simulation setting, then look no further.

It won’t be so easy to run up the score though!

How To Adjust Your Sliders

Madden 21 sliders are there to help adjust the experience to make it a little more personal to you.

Depending on whether you want sim or arcade you can tweak them to make the game harder or easier for your current ability and style.

You can find the Gameplay sliders in the settings menu in game or on the home screen.

There are a few options for different gameplay sliders for you to edit; Penalties, CPU Skill, and Player Skill.

Player Skill sliders change how well human-controlled players play, with the CPU sliders changing the AI.

Adjusting the penalty sliders will change the frequency of specific referee calls during the game. If you don’t think DPI isn’t called enough, you can move the slider up.

This will only work in offline games.

For Online head to head player modes the sliders are set by EA, or commissioners in Online Franchise and you can’t change them.

Game Options

The game options are pretty straight forward and are mostly optional as they are focused on the length of the game.

If you are looking for a challenging sim experience these are what we recommend;

Slider Option Slider Setting
Skill Level All-Madden
Game Style Simulation
Superstar Abilities On*
Quarter Length 15 Mins*
Min Play Clock Time 10 Seconds*
Ballhawk Off
Injuries 25
Fatigue 50
Speed Threshold 0
*these can be changed to suit without affecting the play style too much

These aren’t easy settings, and you will be in for a long game. But these are closest to an actual NFL experience.

Penalty Sliders

These sliders affect how common penalties are called in the game.
