PostSubject: Rocket Catching tutorial???   2010-02-02, 01:46

PS3 VERSION...work with it


1.
Step 1

Pick a quarterback with high DAC and THP ratings. The DAC rating
represents the quarterback's deep throw accuracy. The THP rating
represents his overall throwing power. If you pick a quarterback with
DAC and/or THP ratings that are too low, he will not be able to
consistently throw the right type of pass needed to perform the rocket
catch.
2.
Step 2

Pick a good rocket catching target. You typically will want to
throw to a wide receiver or a tight end, but running backs and
fullbacks are viable targets as well as long as they meet the rest of
the requirements. You will want to choose a tall receiver. A good
rocket catching target will be at least 6'3; a great target will be 6'5
or taller. If you cannot find a receiver that meets these requirements,
you may also be able to rocket catch with a receiver who is at least
6'1 and has a high (i.e., 90+) JMP rating. The high jump rating may
make up for the relative lack of height. Additionally, you want to make
sure your chosen receiver has good hands. This means his CTH rating
(catch) and his CIT rating (catch in traffic) need to be high,
preferably 85 or better.
3.
Step 3

Run a pass play that puts your rocket catching target on a streak
pattern. Alternatively, you can choose any pass play with which you are
comfortable and simply hot route your receiver to a streak (Triangle +
your receiver's icon + up on the D-pad).
4.
Step 4

Snap the ball. Manually take control over your quarterback right away so that you can steer him away from pass rushers.
5.
Step 5

Throw an outside bullet pass to your rocket catching target when
he is about 25 yards away. Throwing an outside bullet pass means
pressing and holding the button corresponding to your receiver's icon
and then, while still holding that button, pressing the outside
direction on the D-pad. That means if your receiver is lined up on the
left, press left on the D-pad. If your receiver is lined up on the
right, press right on the D-pad. It will take some practice to get the
timing down right.
6.
Step 6

Immediately click onto your receiver by pressing Circle. You will
see a large red target superimposed onto the field that represents
where the ball is heading. Just before your receiver enters the target,
cut his route off short by pulling on the right analog stick down and
towards your quarterback. It is crucial that you are pulling the analog
stick back towards the quarterback and not just straight down. If you
have done this correctly, your receiver will take a few stutter steps,
turn around, and automatically "rocket" straight up and catch the ball.
As with the last step it will take a lot of practice to get the timing
right on this maneuver.

Tips & Warnings

*
Running a rocket catch pass play can take a long time.
To keep your quarterback from getting sacked every time, try to pick
good rocket catching targets who are also fast (i.e., SPD rating of 88
or better).
*
Scrambling out of the pocket, either backwards or to the side, will buy
your quarterback some time. It will also help your quarterback throw
the right type of pass (i.e., a deep bullet pass).

Does anyone else notice it may be a touch harder to Rocket catch in a ranked game than it is in practice? Maybe my timing just gets messed up a bit because of i'm concerned with a blitz

I don't even use the RS, it seems unreliable for some reason, unless of course I am doing it wrong =/

ive found it to be a lot harder in real games, ill do it identical to how i do it in practice where i get it pretty much 100% of the time. but in a real game its more like 25% and the other 75% usually is a dangerous mistake that never happens in practice. my fav rocket catch is the out route when im about 10 yards from the endzone. he just drops in the corner leaps and gets it and i have no worries as far as picks are concerned. man really shuts that one down hardcore though =)

does this need to be a high bullet pass meaning pressing up on Left analog stick + receiver button (while holding) then you precision pass it to whatever direction? I'm kinda following these links but even though i have them it's still hard as ever.

lol just did it 10 times in a row on all madden, but then i got 2 picks in a row....this play is either a huge gain or a huge pick, no wonder why people only do it when they have to.

lead pass down and towards the sidline, and the guy who said he can only do it about 25% of the time in a game well i can do it over 90% of the time if my opp isnt a heavy blitzer. the rc is still real easy to the do and yes the out route is still the best man does not stop the out route either.

i think its just a matter of me getting used to the lag i usually do it offline.
btw on the out route that is more like 95% to get the animation. that one is kinda hard to screw up.. lol

today i got my first really badass RC, there was about 20 seconds left in the first half and i had gone to Kelly Washington twice without the rc and he dropped both passes. i was real annoyed. but now i was at about the 30 and no timeouts and i figured id try it again. this time i decided to go for the rocket catch despite his bad hands. i got it in the very corner of the end zone with one of the fall down rocket catch animations to end the half. it was devastatingly awesome. not like i havent rocket catched before in games just this one seemed so perfect.

Unfortunatlly the EA servers went down about a minute into the third quarter and the game didnt count it was unfortunate i was facing a CJ toss cheeser and it was tied with me getting the ball in the third. When i say cheeser i mean cheeser he ran the toss all but 3 plays the first half.

but ya this brings me to my point ive only really gotten the rocket catch down in games on corner type routes were you can throw towards the sidelines, and then pull towards the qb on the sticks. it always works for me 100% in games. streaks and fades however im still shaky.

I made a post for this before the precision patch.. Now this is how its done today...
If
you already know how then please dont trash my post just be an adult
and move on.. credit to madden360, i saw him with R stick catching
first..

The most important thing for RC is your WR height and
CIT (catch in traffic).. You want your CIT to be 80 ... As far as
height the rule is the taller you are the better.. But you can RC with
6'0 anything under is not advantageous. I use Jermichael Finley 6'5
247.. BEAST

The next important thing is route selection.. Once
your good at RC you just pic your opponent apart based on his defense
and you select your RC route... Slant to the sideline is the most
deadliest.. Fade is good vs Deep Blue zones along sideline.. For
beginners use the slant to sideline and practice vs a simple cover 3
from 3-4.. Then work your way up etc...

Steps

1. Send WR on desired route (slant to sideline)..

2. When ball is hiked wait for WR to get 10 yds up field then throw a bullet pass to the sideline...

3.
Click on WR and then use RIGHT THUMBSTICK.. Move the right stick down
and towards the inside of the field.. This will give you RC animation
and you will catch the ball...


Practice this become
comfortable using right stick to catch.. TIMING IS THE KEY (if your
early your WR will just run in weird circle).. GET YOUR TIMING DOWN..

Once
you get timing down the real fun begins you can do the "Rain Man", Jump
Balls, Triple Coverage... Very funny to Bomb it up.. Click on WR and
just moss 5 people..... hahahhaha

Here are pictures to show you where to push for passing

The blue is for the (X) WR or anyone on the left side of field..

The red is for the (B) WR or anyone on the right side of field...



This is for the Catching **Notice the direction to push right thumbstick..

The red is for catching the ball with the (B) WR or anyone on the right side of field

The blue is for catching the ball with the (X) WR or anyone on the left side of field
