BTW, J Diddy did you notice the national champions in the feedback71 dynasty? That's right, baby. 3rd year with the Jayhawks...14-0 BCS National Champions!

We're gonna go to the offseason tonight.

congrats

I can get through the offseason stuff in one sitting if you got the time

Well, I would be willing to do that, too. However, we have to wait on the other 2 guys.

We usually give 3 days before we advance the dynasty. So, I'll wait until Thursday evening to advance it. You think you could get it in by then?
Still need Black Ice to play his bowl game, as well.

National Championship game week. North Carolina and West Virginia. Good luck, Mecca. When that game is done, we can move on to the next week.

Now when you advance in the offseason you do the recruiting weeks 1 by 1 right and not all at once correct?

Because I have all my computer assist stuff off and I don't want to get hosed out of 4 weeks.

It's one recruiting week per advance. I figure we can give everyone 2 days between advances.

Oh yeah, I nearly forgot that. So, you want me to take out one of your early season non cons and add one at the end of the season?

This would be a good time to discuss who wants to play who(m?) in the non con portion of the schedules. Does anyone wanna play any particular other human teams?

Mecca

My opinion of user vs user games is, I don't know if it's a good idea to match the top couple of people with each other because you'll eliminate one from NC contention early on.

Like I don't know if it's a good idea for the top 3 user players to face off in non con games every year.

I agree. User vs. user would be much more fun if there was something on the line.

Realistically, by the end of the season with non user games everyone is gonna be ranked high.

So you're saying he never punts no matter the yardage? That sounds like cheese to me. I asked for straight up, no cheese players when I recruited. If he is a cheeser, then perhaps we should remove him from the league.

I don't remember all the specifics because it's been a week since I played him but I do recall while i was playing him the thought of how mecca would be throwing his controller at the wall quite frequently if I was him.

If he does it one time, I'll play my 96 speed RB as my backup QB and keep subbing him in and run around...turnabout is fair play.

Right now, we are in the transfer requests stage. I figure a lot of us won't even have transfer requests to worry about. For those that do, it only takes a couple of minutes. Hopefully, we can all get this stuff done tonight and tomorrow. I plan to advance again tomorrow evening. Unless somebody requests more time.

But I will say this, in an online dynasty if someone cheeses me I'm going to cheese them back I refuse to just lose a game when it's in dynasty play.

Look, I don't think any of us want cheesers in this dynasty. If it happens, we have options. For one, we can boot them from the dynasty and allow you to replay the game. In any case, I need to know what, specifically, they are doing. And I think we all should discuss what to do, if anything, with said cheeser(s).

Only because as Penn State you don't even really need it....you have pretty much your entire class signed by the end of the regular season.

I think we're moving awfully slow for offseason recruiting which now at week 3 should be able to be done in 15 minutes.

I agree. I should be done in no time. Some peeps take forever to get to it. Or don't even do it at all and by the deadline, I just advance it anyway. I figure we already do a 3 day window to games played. 2 days is way more than enough to do recruiting.

But sometimes people do have other things going on in their lives besides video game. I can understand that.

Ok, might as well just do each offseason task once a day.

Also, I removed beach tribe (Tennessee). He's welcome to come back at any time, but there's no sense in having his team listed in the dynasty headquarters if he hasn't gotten back by now.

All they need to say is ready on visit and you'll get them I purposely put off a couple visits with other guys till the last week with the idea I could get the 3 I wanted 2 corners and a super fast WR...

I can manage but now I'll have to sign 5 CB's in 1 year of recruiting instead of 2 or 3.

No offense, you won the NC with what you had last year. Unless someone knocks you off user wise, I wouldn't be surprised if you landed it again this year.

Is your safety fast...that's one of the big issues with safeties if you don't watch it you'll get one with 82 speed and well if you play a 80 speed safety you'll get burned.

Funny thing is that I was incorrect about skipping past training results. Actually, we haven't even gotten to that part yet. I must have been thinking about the other dynasty.

Are you sure...I'm pretty sure there are 5 weeks of recruiting and the last week we did was 4.

It's not a huge deal it just screws with my depth at a position.

Ah well if there was no more weeks than that's my fault and I apologize but I did think there was 1 more.

I am advancing to the preseason. Everyone will get at least a couple of games against a human opponent if possible. If you have a particular team you would like to play, then send me an IM or just post here. I know some people would prefer not to play any humans or much at all. But where's the fun in that?

Don't worry about it. If you're good, you will get through it and have earned it. ;)

J Diddy, I remembered to add a game at the end of the season for you. Too bad your stupid conference doesn't play a championship game.

P.S.
Just a reminder, if you think someone is playing cheese, let me know. I will give them a warning. If they persist, I will boot them from the dynasty. But just so that we are all in agreement on what exactly constitutes cheese, I think we need a little discussion on that here. Everyone's input is welcome (yes that includes you, black ice & okcchief).

And finally this year in recruiting I actually have top guys interested, so I'm overjoyed about actually being able to sign a couple top guys for the future of my team.

I think I put you and me and Diddy all on UCLA's schedule. If he shows any signs of being a major cheeser, we can always throw out the results and boot him. But I think we need to give it a chance. Still need to discuss what all we should not allow as far as cheese. Like dropping back 20 yards every time to throw a pass. I played a guy tonight in another online dynasty. He was your USC Trojans. He had this quick black guy at QB(not sure which guy it was - perhaps you know?). Every time he would pass, he would drop back 20 yards or so. It was annoying as Hell. Once we decide here what we don't want to allow, I will send out a message to all users informing them that it won't be tolerated.

Oh and as for recruiting. It is nice for me to finally have a 5 star, several 4 stars and a few 3 stars. When we first started this dynasty a couple seasons ago, all I was able to attract were mostly 2 stars and a some 3 stars. :)

Just so that you all know if you don't hear from me for a few days....

My internet has been acting up. It has been going out for periods of time recently. I just had ATT send me a new modem a week or two ago. They were supposed to also upgrade my speed. They had not done the speed upgrade so I called them to have them fix it on Tuesday. Well, the next day, the intermittent problem of internet outages seems to have gotten worse. Last night I called them to have it fixed and, wouldn't ya know it, it seems to be worse. It was out all night last night. At this point, I don't know when I'll have it or for how long. They can't get a repairman out until Monday. So, if you don't see me online between now and then, you'll know why. Would somebody please point Black Ice (Travnasty7) to this thread for me? Thanks.

All he did was every pass play was drop 20 yards deep and roll to the sideline, basically it was an entire game of option/deep drop first guy isn't open run!

Not to mention he kept option pitching on me when I had his QB wrapped up to gain yards...in short that guy is a bitch if you like to play someone who's impossible to defend because they use their QB as a throwing RB be my guest.

However if I have to take the loss for that I may just retire because I have no need for this kind of aggravation I can just play in the lobby if I want that.

Also why do we have someone in the dynasty no one likes playing? I seriously doubt Diddy enjoyed playing him either.

You beat me you beat me but it really annoys me that you sent a message saying don't drop like that and he kept doing it..to show you how far he dropped, on one he dropped and actually stepped up and lost 17 yards on one of the few sacks I got.

My personal favorite was the 4th and 18 where he dropped 20 yards back...ran all the way to the sideline then proceeded to run all the way back across until a guy got open to actually get the 1st down on me.

So all he did all game long was drop way back? And what was the 4th and 18 situation? Why did he go for it on 4th and 18?

Diddy, do you think we should boot blakeluna? I have no problem doing this if the guy is nothing but a cheeser.

It was the 4th quarter...that was why he went for it, but yes every pass play he ran was basically this...drop back look at the flats if my defense was in zone and they were covered roll out to the sideline and run, if it's man dump it real quick.

To give you an idea of how he played...his QB scored all of his TD's but one which was an RB on an option pitch. He had no pass TD's.

His QB has 87 speed and he basically played like the guy was an RB that could occasionally throw.

I just don't think I should take a loss for a guy doing something that was blatantly said to not do, he's one of those guys that gets his fast QB and uses the mechanics of the game to make defending him impossible.

He's everything I hate about online football games, get a team with a fast QB, and run around till someone breaks open.

Not to mention he sent me a message, basically going "haha I'm sure we'll meet again and I won't lose!" It's one thing to get hosed it's another to have it happen and have the dude rub my face in it.

He beat me 29-28 by on 4th and 18 pro longing a play for 20 seconds by rolling back and forth until a guy finally got open down field....I think on the play he avoided both my ends twice and basically rolled them into blockers until he could find a guy open.

Then he ran the QB into the endzone.......then went for 2 and got it by doing an option....because apparently my guys can't tackle a QB, not to mention he had a horrendous connection that kept lagging me, I nearly missed an EP do to it.

Also I think it's complete and total bull when a guy takes a pro style team and runs the option, it would be like me using USC to run the option, it's complete crap.

He was doing that shit with me except I shut the option down pretty good. I swear he didn't punt one time. Only 1 time did he get in punt formation but then it was a fake. Oh yeah and my personal fave the PA Long bomb every play.

Your defense is alot better than mine though, his QB is literally faster than everyone in my front 7, and everytime I'd hit his QB on the the option he'd pitch it while getting tackled and gain 10 yards.

He couldn't get in any bombs on me because I got pass rush, what he'd do to me would be drop deep, roll to the outside on either side or move so my guys would get moved into blockers. If I was in man he'd snap it to a guy in the flat and gain 5 yards. If I played zone to cover that he'd go to the outside with his QB and gain 8 yards running.

On one he rolled all the way to the right about 18 yards deep, proceded to roll back toward the center and start and stop making my end look stupid since his QB has 87 speed then threw it completely back across the field for a 20 yard gain.

One way I countered that was to guess that he'd always roll to the long side of the field. Then I'd send my lineman in that direction. I got decent pressure on the rollout thing but for some reason the PA bomb is kryptonite to my young little defense.


Just a question, if we played on heisman would that have more of an effect on accuracy in particular plays like that?

How fast are your corners...honestly I know this is going to sound bad but the bomb on this game has more to do with the size/speed ratio of the WR and the guy trying to cover him than anything oh and your QB's arm strength.

If you ever get a guy who's over 6'3 with no safety on the top going deep on a guy who is shorter with a lower speed rating you can get big plays, provided your QB's arm is good enough to get it there.

Mecca

But yea I don't think that game should be counted against me in the dynasty, he's every little douche from the lobby basically.

If I were you I'd have gone nuts after that game he played you in and this wouldn't have happened, I'm not big on giving people chances, you play like a douche good bye!

I know I'm harsh.

I also felt he glitched me a few times, making my EP hit at no power, it still went through but it almost really fucked me over. I had my 96 speed RB in the open field and got caught from behind by a guy with 90 speed he caught me from over 10 yards back like he was faster than me....it was like my guy just slowed down and refused to run hard.

There were just some really fishy things on top of how he was playing.

So in the end I think I should get to play my game again...

C'mon, man. I thought you were all into the playing other humans aspect. If you think about it, this really is not a big time consumption type of game. You play one game and do your recruiting (or let the CPU handle your recruiting) every 3 days. That's about an hour of your time every 3 days.

You can have a dude be like a 65 overall if he has a 95+ speed at HB or WR he can make some plays.

you need to get with Diddy and try to schedule a time to play your game. You can post here or send Diddy a smoke or XBL message. Should be a good game. Both teams are 4-0.

I don't recall him committing, but I will have to double check.

Damn, Diddy. I was just looking at your Kstate roster (in the feedback71 dynasty for those that are confused). You entire WR corps are freshmen. Of course, that will help you in the long run. They all have better than 90 speed. Speed is huge.

You definitely have some talent on that team in places. Just not everywhere and some is very young talent. Like your defense has a couple of real solid CBs and a couple of good DTs. You are building well, it seems.

Our game in the feedback71 dynasty the other day was kind of wacky, but lots of fun. Obviously not as wacky as quadruple OT, sure.

I was cussing, not near as bad as when your son whipped, and I do mean whipped, my ass.

Good news is that's the last user vs. user game this year and with a solid strength of schedule I stand a pretty good chance of going undefeated. That and I'm ranked number 3 and the number 1 and number 2 team played this weak as well. So I stand a pretty decent chance to be in the championship game.

Probably the best game my team has played =) But that effort also seems to have ruined my team for the following week with Michigan at home. I couldn't do crap in that game. My QB was having a hell of a time even trying to complete a screen pass. Like always, I fall in love with the pass, and end up throwing the game away. And I think I was robbed in my rank. I held my own against the #3 Penn State on their home turf and it really did nothing to improve my rank and losing to, at the time, #23 ranked Michigan really screwed me =(

I also got a RRoD during the feedback dynasty but all seems well so far. I'll be extremely pissed if my console that's less than a year old takes a sh1t.

I looked at your commit list and saw you had 2 QB's after signing one last year I was like damn he must want to make sure he's always got a QB.

I got the one last year but he is woefully inaccurate, speedy, but can't pass. I've wound up playing devlin over him. I'm getting ready to lose 1 or 2 qb's next year and I'll probably release 1 to bring it to 3. Probably gonna go with one of the qb's as the starter next year.

My d is playing insane right now. My offense is my weakness. My o line is getting rebuilt pretty good after losing everybody the first year. I have a blazing fast rb who is a freshman and he's tearing it up plus a pretty good power back. My wr core is lacking the speed I want but they're not bad.

The d thing is what I went through last year. This year has been mostly offense. I'm starting to get some depth. Hell my 5 star ss from last year can't even barely get on the field this year. Sukay just makes plays even though he's about 5 points slower than the new guy.

His team was worse than I thought it was....I don't really think that score should reflect on the kind of player he is, I'd probably get worked if I was using Duke also.

And turnovers skewed the score, and he didn't play like I expected I expected a ton of QB running but he was really nothing like the UCLA guy so that's what I get for assuming.

Don't you have like a 90 something rated QB?

The only thing I noticed with your team that would frustrate me is you lack big play speed at WR.

yep he's 3rd on the depth chart, starting a true freshman ranked 82
I went away from him for a bit and he probably wont be the answer, hence the 2 5 star qbs I signed.

I got alot of possession receivers, who get decent quicks, but nothing striking fear.

It's almost like I'm usc and youre penn state

Oh you're playing that fast guy at QB, I signed one last year with 88 speed but his passing stuff sucks which means he'll probably always be a backup on my team he's redshirted this year.

I'll take a big immobile guy that can pass over the fast guy that can't. Of course you've played me a bunch of times you know my style, get a dominant line mix some RB's behind that and then go to playaction. More than anything the way I play means I need a QB with a strong arm because I do like to throw down the field.

Right now the hardest thing for me is I just have no depth at all, I'm generally use to being able to recruit guys, redshirt them let them play in blowouts for a year or 2 before they start.

Do you have like a super speed defense....

pretty quick

the determining factor on the qb though was he was pretty close to the 90 ranked senior in thp and tha

the awareness was the huge difference, and you know me, I like to run the qb

Mecca

Right now honestly my saving grace is playing defense well and forcing turnovers and getting big plays on special taems..I am so far from where I want to be on offense.

And this is the last year of my QB I'll take a serious hit at that position going into next year.

LOL, funny story about that guy...I don't have alot of WR weaponary he's my big one...

He was a 4 star guy I think somewhere between 25-30 for WR's so he wasn't a great recruit by any means, I was just scanning through trying to find guys to sign last year at about week 7 after I had lost some guys because I knew I needed to find a weapon.

So I come on this guy, I realize he hasn't been recruited at all by the computer teams he has a lack of offers, I notice he's 6'7 then I see he has a 4.24..so I assume he's going to run at a 92 speed and that's good enough for his size.

I recruit him all through get him to the offseason make some promises and he signs with me over Missouri which did make me laugh a bit...we get to the one screen and I see he has 97 speed and I was just like holy shit.

He's honestly exactly what you'd expect for a 6'7 guy..his 97 speed is evident when he runs straight but he doesn't cut or spin very well and it's nearly impossible to make someone miss. But I guess a 6'7 guy lacking agility and quick change of direction moves is pretty realistic.

Everytime I've played you, you've sat in some kind of zone basically the entire game...

The only time I can ever remember even catching you in a man was that online game where I hit Hazelton deep on the first play of the 2nd half.

I pretty much expect to have anyone who goes deep get double covered with the past history.

I play almost exclusively man under with safeties in cover 2 over the top

fwiw, the formation i used was a quarter 3 with blitz showing

looks like a 3-5

And hey, I never thought this would happen, but my freshman RB ended up 4th in the Heisman voting. I know, it was still a landslide. But I'm just glad that I have a good back for the future.

It was a tough season. My defense struggled early, but really got it going despite not having a lot of great talent like the powerhouse schools. Had to replace my starting QB a few weeks in when I realized that he cracks under pressure (see Nebraska game). But all was good in the end. Even beat Oklahoma twice. :)

Funny thing is that I started the season against Travnasty7's team (Purdue) and I am ending the season in the Fiesta Bowl against.......you guessed it......Travnasy7's team.

Ok, there is one thing about this game that still pisses me off. In the feeback71 dynasty, UTEP is ranked number 1 because they're undefeated. They have not played one single team with a winning record. WTF? And that is the BCS ranking. Obviously, if EA had made the game like the real BCS ranking, it would take UTEP's schedule into account and they would not be ranked that high. Now maybe top 25, sure. Maybe even top 15, but not even #1 overall. That is retarded. Especially when there are several 1 loss teams from power conferences.
Heh, just looked to see what conference UTEP is in. Apparenlty, it is Conference USA. Only 4 teams out of 12 in that conference even have a winning record and UTEP did not even have to play the other 3. :rolleyes:
