    According to locksley you can't offload, or if you can it is extremely rare. Also, there are some tackle animations that stop you from being able to draw and pass.
  4. Mark, mate, buddy-ol-pal . . . it's been discussed, many times, in older threads, in Locks' reviews, from the town-hall to the village cemetary . . .

    In summary: Good observation, cause they aren't apparently there. Locks says when the tackling animation kicks in, if you haven't passed, you're going to grass.

    damn, thats the pivitol part of the passing game, being able 2 bring in a tackleer or 2 an then offloading to the open man. e.g tana and maa every game
  6. Well, as evidenced in the NZ v Cardiff clip, you can draw people in and pass it off to the support (and very well I might add)

    yeh another point i wantd to add was if i was in charge of ea rugby, id change the part of the shoulder charge, so that u hold it down and release to unleash ur shoulder charge, coz for our first 15, our big lads always get there momentum and there posituon about 10 m from the tackler if you get wat i mean capt.

    omg its not a shoulder charge!

    its a good tackle, big hit, spear tackle.....but not a shoulder charge!

    if u use ur shoulders in rugby you'll be penelised in real life!

    shoulder charges r in NHL and allowed in rugby league as sonny bill williams uses it alot!

    sorry bro my bad! what i meant was when you have the ball,
  10. I get what you mean, but have you played 2005 yet -- it might be good enough or to your liking.

    Now, if you were in charge of the EA Rugby series, you've got a lot of explaining to do for 2**4.

    Pardon Teh Mite? Aren't England ranked at least 3 places higher than they should be?

    Over-rating one side (who at the end of the day are still the World Champions) levels the playing field when the SH has official lisences for the clubs, the dispanded PI while the Lions are only 2001, more SH related tournaments....
  16. kaftka

    kaftka Guest

    Wait. More SH related tournaments?
    Lets see.
    Super 12
    Tri nations

    Six nations
    European shithouse.
    And of course the 10 nations and world league and world cup are all and all.
    And are you sure that he Lions are 2001? If so then I don't think it's a case of being biased, but moreso a case of being lazy incompetent Canadian developers being paid on commision and not commitment.

    THE END.

    Back on the subject of passing, hasn't Locksley said that he has got one offload away?
    If so, it makes me hopeful that awesome timing is all thats required.

    No, they are ranked 6 places higher than they should be... England haven't been a top 3 side since the world cup, and don't deserve to have that rating in the game... When I get it on PC I'll put Ireland up closer to France and England down to around scotlands level [​IMG]
    Hey! it's accurate! [​IMG]

    There's a pass from Giteau towards the end of the 2nd half of the Oz v Uruguay game that looks close to a pop ball - or is it simultaneous?

    So hard to make out.

    Can only pause....

    Am losing mind...

    What do you guyz think? (about the pass not my state of mind). [​IMG]

    Shut up you ninny. It's more sad that countries that are big on Rugby can't develope their own technology to produce it... know that is lazy and incompetent wouldn't you say?!

    Both Swordfish Studios and Sidhe have created far better rugby (both codes) games than EA's last effort, and it may very well be the same this year. [​IMG]

    ..The hell you talking about? Especially when you take into consideration the differences in budget.
