Lovely upgrades to the D with the 4-4 and etc, but I see this option in the DPC to cover the HB/FB left or right. I'll assume this covers his routes on pass plays, so - if it's a run, it's gonna work like Cover Man? Yes? No? Maybe?

Works exactly like cover man, except he will only cover him on a route if he goes weak/strong.

Also, checkdowns work all the way through the list now. So you could set your player to cover HB Weak, followed by FB, and if the HB goes out strong he'll cover the FB instead. The further down the list he has to go, though, the more vision checks he has to make.

this is pretty great as now you won't have to commit a ROLB and LOLB to watching a HB and then having one of them uselessly chasing the HB to the other side of the field.

edit: as an example

He fixed it to say HB strong/weak now.

Means this guy will cover the HB/FB if they go on a pass pattern to that side of the field.
I agree awesome upgrade.
And now that you can add multiple cover assignments and it goes down the list correctly, it opens a lot of options.

If its a run play when you are covering something, the player reacts to the run as quickly as his vision allows him to, no matter who he's covering.

EDIT: I type to slow....even Bort had a quicker reply 8/

More like a real defense?

Yeah that's the idea.

For use in defense AI. Just added a note on the page to clear it up a little.

You should at least require a vision check to make coverage adjustments like this.

Low vision players shouldn't be able to make split second reads and adjustments to coverage. There needs to be some tradeoff to defenses being able to blanket the entire field with flawless coverage.

Even professionals blow coverage frequently. This is because "realistic" pro offenses actually have ways to deceive defenses. Unfortunately, in GLB, offenses can do no such thing.
