The "3-4 Ultimate" defensive guide for Madden NFL 15 is here and it is truly a masterpiece that will take any player wanting to use unique defenses to the next level.

Like most years, the 3-4 defense doesn't get much attention. The reason is simple
It's a lot harder to find consistent pressure sending less pass rushers than there are typical blockers when you only have three men on the line.

I can personally vouch for the fact that finding good, efficient blitzes out of a 3-4 based playbook is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do in Madden. But if you happen to love the 3-4, or just want to run great defense that not many others run, then this is the defense for you. 

Whether you're having trouble stopping the run, locking up money plays, or just want to be more aggressive in your blitzing and yet still have great coverage, this guide will certainly satisfy all of your needs.

In this guide, I devoted specific material to teaching how to stop many of the most abused tactics, such as stopping the best run plays like Strong Power, HB Counter, and 0 1 Trap, especially out of Pistol.

I also specifically show how I stop drag routes and crossing routes like in Four Verticals, and everything else that is overly-effective and abused this year. I show how these routes are most effectively ran, so this guide could boost your offense as well.

The guide also includes DT A-gap blitzes, DE B-gap blitzes, edge-pressures, two, three, and four-man pressures, and many pressures that a RB or TE cannot block.

There's even a Coverage defense that gets untouched pressure up the A-gap only sending two people, with the rest in coverage.

The 3-4
Ultimate defensive guide features everything from 3-4: Under, 3-4: Over, 3-4: Solid, Nickel: 2-4-5, Nickel 3-3-5, Quarter: 1-3-7, and many other formations.

Learn how to run all of these powerful formations and much more to their maximum capability using all kinds of defensive line, linebacker, and coverage adjustments that will drive your opponents crazy.

"This guide is better than most of the 43 and 46 guides I've seen this year around the web and on youtube. The pressure sends minimal amount of rushers and is very consistent." — VAFeo

I know that time is valuable, and that is why this guide will not waste your time with endless paragraphs or long, rambling videos. Everything in the guide is direct and straight to the point so that you can get to playing instead of studying.

With this guide, learning is easier than ever as you can just hit the play button, sit back, and watch as we show you all the minor details of running these schemes in a matter of minutes. On top of that, each play comes with short, typed up steps as well so that you have all the most important information that you need to know when you are in the middle of gameplay.

This is extremely important if you need to look something important up during a match and you don't have much time in between plays.

Now, when you're playing, you have all the knowledge and information that you need at your fingertips by just clicking around in our quick-links system so you won't have to watch a whole video to know what the play is supposed to accomplish.

Much respect to the maker of this guide because I know first hand how hard it is to find fast and consistent pressure out of the 3-4 which is getting very little love this year.

I absolutely love the 245 scheme because I barely have to get out of it since you can blitz, stop the run, and run coverage out of it. The run defenses are also great for stopping some of the highly abused runs but the blitzes usually handle the run just fine. Awesome guide fellas.

Strategy Guide: F.A.Q.

Do these strategy guides work on Mac, Smart Phones, or Tablets? Back to top.

Yes to all three. Each guide is fully optimized to work on Macs, smart phones, tablets, and PCs. Any device that can load an internet web page can use the guide with complete functionality. 

What is the purpose of this guide?
Back to top.

The purpose of this guide is to make you a better player at Madden NFL 15 whether you play real people, against the CPU, online, or offline. The strategies in this guide are all game-play related, which means they deal with mainly the aspects of play-calling, play-adjustment, and play-execution.

What does this guide consist of?
Back to top.

This guide mainly consists of Schemes. A Scheme by definition is a "systematic plan of action", and an "orderly combination of related parts". In other words, we define a scheme as two or more plays out of the same formation which we use as a systematic plan of action. We teach you how to adjust it, optimize it, when to switch plays, and how to counter most of the defenses or offenses someone could run against you with it. Above and beyond the play-breakdowns themself, our voice-over commentary is also packed with tips and tidbits of information that can change the way you view each play and the game itself.

Why buy a "Bundle" package? Back to top.

There are several reasons why it is best to get a Bundle package and why many people get them besides the fact that it ends up being a better deal:

1. You learn about other popular offenses. By simply becoming aware of them you instantly gain an advantage on recognizing these strategies and then stopping them when you encounter them since you know what to expect and what it works or doesn't work against.

2. You can learn more different offensive concepts. In each guide we try to make them unique not only in the plays themselves but in the general strategies that we season into each breakdown. By getting a variety of our guides you will be exposed to countless offensive concepts that you can plug into any offense or playbook.

3. You can become more versatile and can switch playbooks against opponents who you play often. Given that each playbook only has a handful of money plays, people you play often can tend to catch on. By being able to use multiple playbooks you can always keep them on their heels trying to stop your powerful offenses.

4. If you use a custom playbook, you can add all, if not most, of the content from each guide into one playbook and have it all at your fingertips in each game.

Can I use this strategy guide with any team? Why is there a team name? Back to top.

The strategy guides can be used with any team you like and in any game mode. You can pick which playbook you want to use in the advanced options of the team-picking screen. The reason these strategy guides have names of teams such as "Indianapolis" is because we used the offensive playbook that naturally belongs to that team in the game but you can use any team's playbook with any team. The reason we break down team playbooks is for variety. We try to break down what we think are the best and most balanced playbooks in the whole game, that way you can have those great plays at your advantage so that you can be as competitive as possible.

Is this guide for competitive, experienced Madden players or for the casual/newbie gamer?
Back to top.

The guide is for both. We pride in making tough concepts simple. We also hold our strategy to the highest standards so that they will be essential in very competitive situations. 

Is this the typical "glitch" and "exploit" guide that I always see?
Back to top.

No. There are no glitches or game-exploitation in any of our products. Everything in our products is consistent with realistic football strategy.

What are some distinctives of Madden Players and its products?
