dammit, I can't believe I let the computer beat ksu in the feedback dynasty. There was seriously nothing I could do. Couldn't run, couldn't pass, couldn't stop the run, couldn't stop the pass.


Urgh!!!!

Btw, when do we advance?

I don't know. It was pretty brutal. Problem I've got now with ksu is my qb graduated last year and I'm stuck with the pick of the litter with three freshman.:(

My defense this year in the feedback dynasty is not up to snuff, so to speak. Defense has been my strong point for the past 3 seasons. Whenever I needed a big play, my defense would come through. Whenever my offense was struggling, my defense held the other team until I could get my offense rolling. This year, not so much. That last play should have been a tackle and game over (or perhaps a TO by you) and then we do it all over again for another play or two. :shake: I guess winning the title last year has made them complacent.

Or perhaps it also has something to do with rivalry games. I do think there is something to that. Hmmm, perhaps we need to find someone to take over an ACC rival of Mecca's. :D

All of my rivals are shitty teams so...and we already had 1 person try that.

Ok, jeff. What kind of hookers and roids you offerring up at Penn State to attract all these players? Seems like every five star on my board has you at #1 and not counting the 5 or how many else you currently have commited.

I'd honestly like to know how you recruit because this is 2 years in a row you've gone from behind me to a commit without a soft or visit in there..hell last year the guy was soft to me, are you literally using 5 hours on 1 player?

im cheesing big time

I spend like 9 hours on one guy, then I spend the remaining hour hiring hookers for him.

Which is why I recruit an avg of 10 guys a week.

I'm just curious how that's possible, I've literally never seen a guy go from soft to one school to committed to another one without a visit or a guy jump from 2nd to committed with no softs and no visits.

And I'm not saying you're cheating I'm just asking because it's literally something I had never seen..

The guard we were both recruiting this year...he signed with you, before the week he signed with you, this week, I was 1st we had both visited and my bar was fuller, so I was like how the hell did you got a commit without even a soft. That was baffling to me.

Oh, that guy, the first week I recruited him I hit his most. Hit that for an hour, and he signed with me.

Mecca

Wait what, not the guard you signed the 1st week, the one that just committed that we both recruited for like 8 weeks.

I know how you get commits the 1st week that isn't any sort of question.

yeah it keeps track of some NCAA and team records. i noticed that KU held the record for points scored (102 i think).
i'm guessing you used real player names the first season because Maclin is still in the MU record books.

Yep. Downloaded a roster from romanceasar or somebody like that. I'll admit that I did edit the KU roster a bit before I started that first year. I mean, EA was so smart they actually had KSU ranked better overall (81) than KU (77). KU's stud WR Dezmon Briscoe had speed of 80. :rolleyes:



Diddy, I don't think there are any original real players left.

Good to be back. It looks like I missed out on the players I recruited when I was on before. They are all seniors now, and half of them are injured. Crazy. I have an all american QB two WRs with ratings of 96-98, a RB with 96 spd. ALL injured. I'm playing a lot of freshmen, and sophomores in hopes that their attributes will go up as I load up for a run in a season or two.

If I'm on autopilot, I did not know it. I'm supposed to play against this Cobb guy. I left him numerous messages last night. If you want to move on, go ahead, and do it. I will be busy tonight until about 10:00 et. I'l try to contact him today around 4:oo et. If we can set up a game I'll let you know. If you don't hear anything go ahead, and advance.

one thing i don't like about NCAA is the fact that when you find a good player you only have them for a few years. :grr:
EA needs a true NFL online dynasty. allow teams to draft players, manage salary caps, trade players, etc... :thumb:

Agreed. Or someone does. Would it matter if you had the nfl license in a dynasty game? It's kinda like the college game, eventually they will turn over.

Well considering I know Mecca outside of this board I have a slight rooting interest..although really i'm just hoping that someone wins and someone loses. I think I have Oregon at #3 right now..so unless an atomic bomb strikes during your game and there is no winner and loser, I should be in the BCS title game if I beat USC (which is of course.. a big IF).

Oh that's a versatility thing he still plays RB most downs because when you flip the stick he just goes into the backfield, my formation subs won't let me move him to the outer WR spot just the slot so it screws up what I want to do, my 2 best players are RBs I like to get them on the field.

I use him like he's Reggie Bush.

And you can tell he doesn't lineup out at WR all that often because he doesn't have some insane number of catches, it's for versatility not so I can throw it to him 15 times.

When I flip him into the backfield which I do on most downs my WR's just move up a spot so it goes to the normal WR depth chart.

He's just my do everything guy from kick and punt returns to RB/FB to WR, I didn't really assume it was a big deal since RB's lineup all over the field all the time. I don't line him up at QB or anything.

And yes I know how the depth chart looks but he'll be in the backfield more than he's out at WR, if the game had a stick sub setting of moving your RB to the outside WR spot I wouldn't need to do that but since you can only put them in the slot and you can't go to the depth chart 20 times in a user game that solves the problem because flipping it to spell RB moves him back into the backfield and moves my other WR's back up a spot.

Fuck you. If you have any sportsmanship or decency you should at least try to play a level playing field. Yeah, you should let me win. Up 49-7 you don't bother kicking off, up 49-7 you're blitzing your de full bore, up 49-7 your running fade routes to your 99 speed hb (who didn't play much if any at hb, but hey playing guys out of position is bad right, mecca. oh wait not if it benefits you. kinda like rolling out to pass, bad unless you do it)

it's one thing to win and be good at this game. it's entirely another to try to rub someone's nose in it.

Mecca
02-01-2009, 01:26 AM
I threw the ball 4 god damn times how is that rubbing someones nose in it...I threw the ball a grand total of 1 time the entire second half, once again how is that rubbing someones nose in it?

And for the record I don't know how I was throwing fades to my RB up 49-7 when he had 2 catches both coming in the 1st quarter..he had 2 damn catches 2.

What am I suppose to do start kneeing the ball in the 3rd quarter? I was exclusively handing off, I don't know how much more conservative I can go, if you can't stop the run that isn't my problem.

I also don't think sportsmanship involves turning into a child when you lose or taking your ball and going home.

I didn't tell you to fumble a kickoff or throw a pick 6, and I didn't blitz you AT ALL, it was straight Dline pressure, I can't just make them stop rushing.

All I know is I've never started lining up in punt returns on 1st down or punted the ball on 1st down...what is that about?

Mecca,
I do find it funny that you bitch about people doing certain things and call it cheese and then turn around and do the same damn things. But it is okay for you. No, scratch that. I don't find it funny. I find it to be hypocritical.

But whatever. It is obvious that you are better than the rest of us in this dynasty. Everyone else is at similar levels of ability. You are....well. What was that term that someone mentioned? MLG? Frankly, it is not fun for anyone to see the same guy win it all every year. Even if you don't win it, you will get there, I'm sure.

I really don't see what you get out of this dynasty.

Therefore, I am going to strongly suggest that after this season is done, you either go to a team that is rated below 70 overall or retire.

Lzen

UNC receiving stats:

Ben Jackson HB#49
38 rec. 893 yards. That guy has 100 yards receiving per game. The next closest player is TE Martin Haley with 22 grabs. The highest number for a WR is Corey Cooper with 14 grabs. Interesting stats considering the self patting on the back last year about how everyone else threw a lot to their HB yet BT did not. :rolleyes:

Lzen
02-01-2009, 11:29 AM

First off, you might as well been blitzing. Your de was flying past my rt on everything. Even if I didn't try to roll out. If I had 2 seconds in the pocket it was rare. Curious that that guy is a 79 overall, 87 speed guy (bet you recruited him as de, huh?) That's even with protecting to his side and holding the te to block.

Second, was a bit toasty so I over reacted. So I apologize for the name calling,etc. The point being is you complain an awful lot about what anyone else does then turn around and do it yourself.

It's not fun playing with someone who will do anything at any cost to win. You are that person. This is why I resigned.

I truly don't know why you don't get in a more advanced league, because you are too advanced for ours...

Boy that makes alot of sense, I guess that joke I made one day has merit now. And this is all funny to me, since I win I can't say anything about cheese lol ok...I use my RB like he's Reggie Bush I guess that's cheese now, whatever.

I'll say to you guys what I say to anyone else at anything, I am not going to let you beat me, if you want to win get better.

No one is required to play me, most people have 2 user games some have 3 but I have 4..if everyone hates playing me that much why do I have the most user matchups?

This is a no win situation, people talk trash before playing me oh I'm gonna beat Mecca, so if they beat me I'll never hear the end of that but then when I win it's "this is no fun"

I even picked a bad team on purpose, I am not the greatest player in the world.

I think this just comes down to people have some kind of personal issue with me.

Also in the last 3 seasons I'm the only person Diddy has lost a game to, guess you all should want him to leave or pick a worse team too then since none of the rest of you can beat him.

Then there's you. I don't understand what satisfaction you could get at constantly destroying another team. You win. Okay. You're the greatest at ncaa 2009 congrats that might get you some head from a toothless whore or in some circles a nice fruit basket.

Now the rest of us want to play for something too. Even the playing field or find a more competitive league.

It is not a personal issue, although your tactics tend to rub people the wrong way. It is more an issue of having a chance to win.

Tactics?

You tried to throw bombs to your 99 speed WR...you turned the ball over, your team should be able to beat my team. Your offense is every bit as fast as mine.

Your RB has the same speed and a 10 point better overall rating. I like the team I've built from nothing that's what I get out of it, building a national power is fun.

This is why I said when you said "playing you is fun because it's a challenge" you wouldn't think it was so much fun when I had a team as good as yours.

I never thought I'd get personally insulted and have people hate me for being good at something.

What are you saying? "I suck and can't beat you so I don't want to play with you anymore"

Ok look I won't put my RB at WR on the depth chart, I only threw it to him 2 times but anyway.

Dude you are Penn Fucking State, you can take players from me in recruiting you were within 3 points last year....you were off your game, it happens. When you turn the ball over it makes the game excessively hard, that isn't going to happen every time we play.

Nothing went your way, that's the game sometimes. You have outstanding RB's and I was getting a pass rush, I thought just by looking at your stats before that game you were a little over enamored with your WR and maybe forgetting a little who your go to guy is.

Offensively I was running every single play, I don't know how that is my fault if I can gain yards, last year you tore me up running I didn't say anything.

Mecca
02-01-2009, 09:16 PM
Look guys I'd rather not quit, or switch from a team I've built, there are still 3 people in the dynasty I have never played against who's to say they aren't better than me?

I was looking at team stats, there are users ahead of me in everything but sacks...that's the one thing I lead in. I don't even average the most PPG, I mean I'm proud of the way I play defense but I don't consider myself the offensive guru of the game. Hell most of my offense is running the ball and playactioning and showing you a deep ball occasionally if you keep pressing up.

I mean really it was one game, me and Lzen played a good game earlier in the year. Diddy you and I played a great game last year.

If some really really doesn't want to play me I accept that and they don't have to be put on my schedule I'm sure there are atleast 2 user players that don't have a problem playing me though.

You played an outstanding game last year.....it was just the turnovers this year. This game is like that if you start turning it over it gets out of hand in a hurry.

I really wasn't trying to run up the score it was why after it was 35-7 I kept handing off. When you quit I was getting ready to take all of my players out.

I didn't think the kickoff thing was going to piss you off earlier in the year I punted to Lzen and he had a 97 speed guy back there and ran it back on me and after that I vowed I would not straight punt or kick to anyone that fast again.

It's a tradeoff thing you don't get a return TD but you get great field position.

Dude you kick the shit out of all year in and year out. That's not fun to not have a chance to win. Listen to you, right now you're almost trying to convince people that you're not that good and they have a chance to win. Why??? You're undefeated in this dynasty. Even the first year when you're team was REALLY not that good you went undefeated. The better you get every year makes you even more that untouchable. Why do you want to play in this situation? There is no competition for you. Do you get your jollys off by winning in a situation where you can't lose?

Mecca
02-01-2009, 10:05 PM
No...but I've built a team for 3 years I feel invested in it...and cmon someone is going to beat me, I'm not perfect, everyone else is building teams also. There's 3 players I haven't faced off with.

No matter what dynasty you're in there will always be a perceived best player, I mean cmon I know I'll lose at some point and whoever beats me will give me a load of shit about it.

I thought you had me last year...and it's a game I know I will always get everyones best game and that's fine, someone is going to bring it and beat me at some point.

I accept if some don't want to play me and ask to not be put on my schedule that is fine, but I'm sure there are 2 or 3 people that would have no issue playing me.

We've had good games every year besides this one where turnovers skewed it, lets go with the averages here not the anomaly.

I don't think any of you guys are bad players, it takes time to get your team like you want it even if you start with a good team. I think Lzen has done a really nice job building Kansas to where he has them and I don't judge anyone like Gopher who just became Texas obviously he'll want completely new personnel.

Your team is talent loaded you have a top freshman WR and RB..with top OT's from back to back classes...

You have the ability to beat me you know that, that's why I think that game really frustrated you. Playing you makes me a little nervous because your offense has alot of speed and I always think I could lose this game...any mistakes against speed and it ends in the endzone.

don't forget how he went on and on about losing his players before the season started. yeah, his team really sucks. :rolleyes:

Well I bet that is a proud feeling to convince everyone they aren't good enough.

If that's how it's gonna be I'll just save it offline after the season ends and get some players to join in that don't feel the urge to complain about losing games. Hell even my brothers 16 year old friends don't act this way.

And if anyone else wanted to carry over I'd reinvite you back, like I'm 99% sure Oregon guy will be in.

If anyone wants to still be in let me know and I'll reinvite you.

I'm just getting tired of having to defend myself for winning. It's almost like I'd save myself alot of grief if I'd just lose my user games on purpose and that's just not a good thought to have.

I convinced nobody of anything. In fact I've had conversations with several people before the season even started that if there wasn't some parity they were gonna quit.

As fun as it might be to whip up on everyone it's not fun being the whipping post.

Perhaps you should invite your brothers 16 year old friends to beat on for a while.

Mecca
02-03-2009, 07:39 PM
I love your defeatest attitude.

Parity, being great is not looked kindly upon I guess, I hate losing at everything so if I'm gonna play I desire to be the very best at it.

I don't understand how it's my fault if someone can't beat me. I didn't intentionally turn anyone into a whipping post, all I can say is um get better at the game?

Mecca, you just don't get it. Some folks don't feel like they have a chance. You are obviously better at this game then the rest of us. Knowing that, I don't understand how that would even be fun for you.

I used to play in a league of Madden with 3 other guys at work. I pretty much got to the point where I was always winning. I got bored of that and needed more of a challenge. I would upgrade my AI settings every year to make it a little harder on me. Of course, that just made me better at the game. But I would also see things they were doing that were wrong and I would make suggestions to help them improve. I tried to show them that I wanted them to be better (truly, I did - much better for me when they can challenge me and not just me knowing I am going to win).

I also got to the point where I would take over hte worst team in the league if I won the Superbowl. That made it to where I did no win the SB every year. Just every other year. :D

LOL. Do you lack self esteem so much that you need to validate your existence with winning at a video game?

As far as joining anymore CP leagues I'm sure I'll manage. I might have to cuddle up with my son's teddy bear tonight and rock myself to sleep.

Mecca
02-03-2009, 07:52 PM
I just don't like how I have to defend myself for doing what I'm suppose to do, I thought it was pretty well known that I was good at this game before I ever joined.

And I figured after people played alot of games and recruited for several years and got the teams they wanted they could give me a run, I don't consider myself the greatest of all time.

Hell Lzen you're usually in the games with me....

LOL me lack self esteem ok, this is just the first time I have ever had to defend myself for being good at something. You literally acted like I was a huge piece of shit just for doing what I was suppose to do.

You can think or say what you want I don't really care, you can't help what you're good at I've been a good game player since I was a child...

And it wasn't like me being good was some big secret, I'm pretty sure when I was invited it was very well known. So basically at first everyone thought they'd have a shot and then after a few years that became "fuck this guy I hate him"

The only way to get those players back would be to save it offline have them tell you how much time they want to spend on each guy, advance it save it then put it back online and resend invites, that's the only way around it..

There's also a player progression glitch that affects the commissioner.

You just don't get as many player progression points as the other teams do, you frequently get numbers like 1's and 2's I'm sure where as if you aren't the commish you get more 5's and 6's over the long haul your guys just don't get as much better.

It also doesn't help that during the course of the season your guys don't up as much as the other teams do so over the course of a year you might get cheated out of 2 or 3 points on a guy. If you notice the commissioners players never go on a hotstreak.

he went for it on 4th down several times... 1st drive of the game he went for it on 4th and GL from like 2 or 3 yards out. stating it was the same as a loss getting all the way down there and not scoring a Touchdown.

I have a hard time kicking a FG when it is 4th and goal from inside 2 or 3 yards. It just seems like a huge letdown when I feel that I should always score when I get down there. But I don't recall going for it several times in a game on 4th down. Can you be more specific so that it might jog my memory?

You know I don't do that in my own territory unless I am behind and it is late. When you get in the other team's end of the field, it sometimes makes sense to just go for it, even if you don't convert. And punting on the opponent's 40 is about worthless. It always drops in the end zone. A lot of times, I will try to coffin corner it one direction and the kick goes in the opposite direction. WTF?

there was the 4th and GL from the 2 or 3, a 4th and inches at mid field (which anyone would have went for), and a 4th and 1 or 2 from your own 40... like i said, its just upsetting not being able to stop a team on 4th down. i really hate it when i get into the backfield for the stop only to watch the running back drag me 5 yards for the 1st down. :mad:

The only one that sounds funny to me is the one you said was on my own 40. I don't normally do that so if that was the case, a question. Was I down and trying to comeback? Or perhaps I forgot where I was on the field. Not likely, but sometimes with the wife and kids running in and out I get distracted.

Honestly, the real question is who cares? You get 4 downs. You got stopped on the other 3. If you take a chance on the 4th, especially, down at your end then it's a huge risk that can backfire on you, big time.

Well, it does help when you can bring in top ten recruiting classes for a few seasons. ;)

When I started out in this dynasty, Kansas was rate 77 overall. They were a 3 star prestige program. Hell, I couldn't even sniff a 5 star recruit. Pretty much most 4 stars wouldn't even have anything to do with me, either. I had to recruit some 3 stars and some 2 stars. That was a major challenge.

The AI on that game needs work, you literally have to fuck with everything just to get the computer to play normally.

Next years game better have some serious tweaks in it.

Like I recruited a 98 speed RB to that team to go with the starter...I bet they handed off about 5 times right.

I've spent hours of my time trying to find a way to move sliders around to make the computer be competitive with me without completely killing the game and it's damn near impossible. I turned all of the computer stuff up to 100 on heisman and the ball is still pretty easily moved.

The only thing you can really do is turn the user RB ability down then your guys all run like they shit their pants.

Sry, guys. I was online earlier in the evening. After awhile, it just completely stopped working. I think it must be the phone line. I had to run an errand last night and when I tried calling home, I got voice mail right away. Checked and the phone now has no dial tone. Called the repair number last night (thank God for cell phones :) ) and the computer system said it should be taken care of by Wednesday. :cuss: Dang it, they should be there this morning!

I've been reading stuff where people think EA needs to rescale the college ratings because "to many guys end up with 99 speed" and those players should be special there shouldn't be 10 of them on the game at one time or more than 1 on the same team.

Then they go on and on about how speed overrides everything and if you recruit a 2 star kid that's 6'4 with a 98 or 99 speed he'll play better than a 5 star guy who's a 89 speed.

Speed rules in this game for sure. You have to have decent stick skills to utilize a power back/etc. You don't need any skills to outrun a guy.

I think sometimes the game just rates guys wrong, like when a guy is 6'4 and has a 4.20 40 he probably shouldn't be a 2 star player.

It's just very difficult to make recruiting realistic, if the 5 star players are automatically the best players well that isn't realistic because many top rated recruits ended up sucking while guys like Terence Newman were 3 star recruits.

On the other hand if a 2 or 3 star kid dominates people complain about that. I think people should just be aware of what players they need to compete. Like I'd be the first one to tell you, you're better off having major speed on your defense than your offense no one will kill you if your defense can fly.
