Do you think a player's weight actually has any effect on game play? If so how much? In what way? For the purposes of discussion I want you to consider two DT's. They have the exact same attributes. The only difference is one weighs 285 pounds and the other weighs 305 pounds. Remember ALL of their other attributes are identical.

Re: weight?

Right but that factors in speed as well. I'm looking at just weight,where everything else is the same. If everything else is exactly the same does weight influence gameplay?

As long as the speed, acc, and agi are the same I don't see why it would.

Unless the physics engine takes it into account.


That is what I am getting at.......do the players truly have a "weight"? If weight is accounted for than it should be visible with the game. The heavier player in this otherwise identical pair should have more momentum which means with the exact same agility/acceleration they should have a harder time changing directions but hit with more force.

Maybe it is my skeptical nature regarding EA but somehow I don't feel players truly have weight.

I don't think it means jack shit besides their appearance on the field.

Re: weight?

When you create a player and make them fat they get bigger, so my best guess is all weight does is control the actual size of the player, which would come into play when players are trying to squeeze through holes, fat guys just take up more space.

That is what I was thinking. How is it possible to have a "physics" engine that does not take into effect weight/mass? I smell another class action lawsuit.

Re: weight?

I would think having 2 RBs who have every other attribute the same, the heavier RB would be harder to bring down or would at least be more likely to fall forward when tackled.

I would like this to be true but am not sure it is.
