that doesn't make me feel better about getting my ass kicked by Michigan :(

Well, heh heh. Okay, not always. I mean once you have a team that you have been able to recruit some speed to after a few seasons. ;)

oh, and after I play today's game put me on AP starting tomorrow. I'll be MIA for a bit...

at least now you will have an excuse for losing. ;)

I know you're Purdue is Michigan a rival for you? If you turn the ball over in a road rivalry game it wil cause the entire team will become rattled and play like crap so that may explain what happened to you.

I'll have to check on that but I don't recall it being flagged as a rivalry game. I just couldn't negate the speed Michigan had and, like you mentioned earlier, my QB is prone to be frazzled easy. He makes some dumbshit throws and misses some wide open receivers. I think he's a basehead. I read something about composure and it either going up and down in a game. Where can you check that?

When you pull your play book to see the entire field like say you want to look at your play..I believe you push the right stick down..it'll show either a gray circle which is neutral a blue circle which means he's cold and playing poorly a red circle which means hot or flashing red...

Cool, I'll have to check that. My QB forces me to a certain playstyle because of his errant throws and brain farts; I don't get it considering his arms strength and throwing accuracy are high 80's if not low 90's... Maybe I need to start him off slow to get his composure up and then start trying to go downfield more..

In order to frequently throw the ball down the field at a high rate your QB has to have 95+ arm strength and accuracy in that area.

I don't have a QB that can do that either I have to go to short and intermediate with the occasional deep shot.

good info

The QB I had my best season ever with was Mitch Mustain in an offline USC dynasty...his arm strength and accuracy were both 97 I could routinely complete balls 50 yards down field like it was nothing..

You get a guy with 90s in both areas you see flutter balls...if you have a QB who can do it, you are nearly impossible to play but you basically have to have a freak to get it done.

Gah, my #1 recruit soft commited to Ohio State. I still think I can steal him though. Just have to really press on him.

I guess that's just the nature of recruiting against someone who has basically every pitch as an elite.

No...it was the guy you thought I was going to sign though...the DT with blazing speed is only being recruited by me and computer teams.

It's not a giant deal I just thought it was odd to see you completely jump me with no soft to sign 2 5 star players.

yes it was the feedback league. and i cant wait for him to b!tchslap my blue devils. :deevee: hopefully it wont be as bad as the UNC game.. that was ugly. he had too much speed for my team. beat me by like 70. by far my worst loss ever.

You know what the strange thing is about that? I can usually beat a CPU controlled Missouri in any of my dynasties with a much less talented KU team. But I have a harder time beating MU when they are human controlled.

I hope to not repeat last season's debacle. As I recall, turnovers were a big factor. I think my defense has improved, as well. I guess we will see if that is the case at the end of the year. I got you and J Diddy, and Travnasty all within I believe a 4 week span.

Well, I am starting to build some quality depth so it won't kill me. But he was doing pretty well and he is definitely better than the guy that will step in. Oh well, injuries are a part of the game.

My Penn state team has approximately 20-30 5 star recruits.

I got 1 5 star commit my first year, you should be ok, aslong as you can pick through the middle tiered guys.

Problem though is maybe it's just me but this years recruiting is kinda blah it seems.

David.

Yeah plus I think if I beat USC I'll jump everyone and play you in the NC. That should help the team caliber. Though I'm not sure if I like my chances online. I can't seem to play online without massive lag. It seems like all my games dc. I'm gonna go over my settings on my router, make sure i have it set up right.

Mecca
12-30-2008, 11:11 PM
Now don't lag me I don't like that....

If you win your conference your star prestige should increase...winning BCS games or National titles increases the level of your pitches though.

I noticed you jumped ahead of Penn State..no offense to Diddy but I don't want him twice in the same year.

David.
12-30-2008, 11:12 PM
it seems to be pretty bad, not sure. But I donno it may just be i'm so used to playing offline. We'll play sometime before then so you can see how it is.

Mecca
12-30-2008, 11:16 PM
It should play close to how it plays offline...the coin toss is always laggy and the kicking is a bit blah to but there shouldn't be any sort of heavy lag where guys freeze or move slow.

I know some of you were talking about going to Heisman at the end lf the last season, if that comes up again, bring it up beforehand and I'll come up with a slider set that will make it realistic because you can't play Heisman on the base sliders it gets all weird.

I warn you though if you are a lesser team playing the computer will become challenging and you'll see user losses to computer teams.

LOL, I didn't say to change the quarter length or anything just that if it is decided to go to Heisman you have to make some tweaks to the game unless you want to throw a bunch of INT's and see the computer doing outlandish shit.

The only thing about this game that I find is annoying is the FG power to kickoff power, no one can kick a damn touchback yet everyone can make a 55 yard fg it's all wonky.

USC was tough, but couldn't contain vereen almost 300 yards on them. Was actually a lot closer than it looked I was tied at 14 with 2 minutes left in the 3rd with USC driving, but they seemed to just fall apart at the end. Good luck with them J Diddy, they're tough, but I think you can handle them with your team pretty easily.

BTW Think I'll probably jump you after this week mecca. :D

What's funny is I take way more pride in playing defense than I do offense. I got a few more badasses coming in for my offense this year, like I said last years recruiting class was about stocking up my line this years was about weapons.

is that why you ran up the score on Duke? because you gave up two TDs??? don't deny because you was calling time outs at the end. at least if i'm winning big i just run my offense, i dont call timeouts or anything.

Do you really wanna know why I scored an extra TD....

Did I have to do it, nah I didn't...but at the time I felt that I wasn't going to be light or easy. I understand you were losing so in the 2nd half you went to that whole roll out to the sideline chuck it back across stuff.

But I'll be perfectly frank I think everyone else in the dynasty knows this, if you play that way with me I won't ever loosen up and I will run up the score when given the chance.

And I had guys visiting the game.

You called timeouts because he was rolling to the side? That seems kinda weak. I will admit that I do run up the score occasionally against CPU controlled teams. But when I play humans, I try to not do that. It's just kind of a dick thing to do no matter what the circumstances. But I'm not going to tell anyone what to do or not do here. Doesn't sound like anyone was doing anything to break the rules.

It's a moment thing...a rival team of mine with recruits at the game.

I don't really have a problem that he started rolling when he was losing by a few scores in the 2nd half, I didn't complain about it, I think it's a fair trade off, you can play that way if you like just don't expect me to ever let up on until the game ends.

No big deal either way, that's the only game I've done that in if you go straight that whole way I'll lighten up for the most part.

what game was you watching??? not once did i roll out and then throw back across (if by that you mean run all the way left, then throw right or vice versa). my pass plays were quick passes to my TE or RB. if nothing was there i would get chased out of the pocket and if still nothng was open i throw the ball away.

in the 2nd half i was running the ball controlling the clock because i didn't want to get blown out by 70 again. i passed a few times to try and keep the ball (e.g. 4th down, 3rd and long) or if i was near the redzone with a chance to score. but for the most part i ran the ball in the second half.

don't get me wrong i congratulate you on your win. i knew going in that i would have my hands full with your WRs. they were 6'5, 6'7 and 6'5 with speed as fast as 97. where as my CBs were 5'10, 5'11 and 6'0 and not near the speed. i just don't want you saying that i didn't play the game right (or whatever you were trying to imply) :shake:

Nah you're fine, you got a TD on one of those roll to the sideline plays like I said no issue you didn't do that till you were down so it wasn't like it was your strategy. You had one from the left sideline to the right hash but like I said it was nothing to make me bitch or complain about I didn't say anything. Just explaining at the time what went through my head.

It had more to do with the fact that I had guys visiting the game you get a better visit if you blowout a rival.

I'm a heat of the moment person, if I see a run to the sideline chuck it deep play turn into a 60 yard TD I may think "ok I'm scoring now no matter what" it happens.

I guess you can think of me as Steve Spurrier I dunno.

I understand your team is bad and you do what you gotta do it's why I don't give you shit for your RB leading your team in receptions, if that was anyone else I'd poke fun for it.

I don't really have a problem with anything you did like I said, I wanted my A+ recruiting visits more than anything, and yes after that 60 yard TD pass to the RB I did have the, ok I have to score now for the sake of the blowout and just a pride of are you kidding me? kinda thing.

Let also say a couple other things. Sometimes a team needs a big blowout to help their chances if they are trying to get into the national championship game. While that kind of thing would suck for the team they are playing against, it is somewhat understandable why they would do it. I don't believe that is the case, however.

Also, I said no rules were broken. In reality, we don't actually have any rules per say. Nothing written anyway. Perhaps we should do that. You know, get some things written down for future reference. Like when that Blakeluna guy was cheesing, it would have been nice to point to some actual written rules. Things like no putting in your WR at QB unless you plan to use him there permanently. I had some guy do that to me with OU in another league just the othe day. I still almost beat him, though.

So what say you, fellow players? Any particular rules we should post in the thread header permanently?

Well at the time I was thinking about my recruits, but yes I am in a weird national title spot because Cal winning likely has him jump me...I should remain in 2nd but there are more than 2 undefeated teams so I can't be having any hiccups.

He was fine if you roll in the 2nd half down by 20+ to try to make a play I'm not gonna scream out OMG cheeser.

To me cheesing is taking advantage of the flaws in the game design to win not so much the person you are playing. If you drop 20 yards deep every time and run to roll rushers into lineman or roll the the sideline on every pass like it is your game strategy that to me is a very cheesy way to play because you are using the games design to win.

I have personally wondered if it's cheesing to put a RB at QB play where you do the option like the popular wildcat? What do people think of that? I've done that against the computer in an offline dynasty to see if it works.

I usually concentrate on my 5 and 4 star guys, sorting my draft board by caliber. I work those guys pretty hard. Maybe I'm not spending enough time, I'm using under a hour per recruit, on them because it seems they tend to get pissed if you talk too much. I usually try to open up three pitches a week and then hard sell them on something they are "most" or "very high" on to get them happy before I let them go.

Well, if get guys with speed, it doesn't matter nearly as much what their overall rating is. You can have young players who may not have as much awr but a shit ton of speed and that is still a huge advantage. Sometimes the team overall rating does not tell the whole story.

Plus, you are a very good online player. That is always the main advantage you have, IMO. You have played a bunch of online games against humans and are used to it.

As for me, I hate playing online games because I always want KU and then some dipshit will pick Georgia or Florida. Why even bother when I know such a huge mismatch in talent gives me virtually no chance to win? Because I don't play much online much (pretty much only when I have a dynasty game against a hum), there are always a couple of factors that screw with me. And these were touched on by David the other day, as well.


A. The lag. If you don't play online much, you aren't used to the slight delay. Offenses are predicated on timing That slight lag screws me up sometimes in online play. It causes me to get rid of the ball late many times resulting in an INT, fumble, or sack that may not have been if we were playing a game on the same console.

B. You guys play defense that has a different look than any CPU team I have ever play. Mecca is especially good at this. I would practice against it more but there is just no way to do it against the CPU. I guess the more I play against certain humans, the more I will adjust certain styles.

Well, if get guys with speed, it doesn't matter nearly as much what their overall rating is. You can have young players who may not have as much awr but a shit ton of speed and that is still a huge advantage. Sometimes the team overall rating does not tell the whole story.

Plus, you are a very good online player. That is always the main advantage you have, IMO. You have played a bunch of online games against humans and are used to it.

As for me, I hate playing online games because I always want KU and then some dipshit will pick Georgia or Florida. Why even bother when I know such a huge mismatch in talent gives me virtually no chance to win? Because I don't play much online much (pretty much only when I have a dynasty game against a hum), there are always a couple of factors that screw with me. And these were touched on by David the other day, as well.


A. The lag. If you don't play online much, you aren't used to the slight delay. Offenses are predicated on timing That slight lag screws me up sometimes in online play. It causes me to get rid of the ball late many times resulting in an INT, fumble, or sack that may not have been if we were playing a game on the same console.

B. You guys play defense that has a different look than any CPU team I have ever play. Mecca is especially good at this. I would practice against it more but there is just no way to do it against the CPU. I guess the more I play against certain humans, the more I will adjust certain styles.

I won't play people that use Florida or Ohio State, all they'll do is run around with the QB.

I don't think I'm a very typical online player, yes I have a 64-9 online record for ranked games, but I've played almost all my games with SC, I am a straight drop back and pass, play action, run the ball player, I bet all of you can count on 1 hand how many times you've seen my QB run.

dajeff mentioned how my zone killed his K-State team but i ran the same zone vs. mecca and he outran it. speed is KING!

Well no matter what defense you are in, you have to have the athletes to play it, especially against a freak.

LOL, I don't run the option much..there's I think 5 option plays in my playbook and 1 of my backup QB's has a good speed rating if I ever want to throw it in as a mix up but no as a general rule it is not something you'll see much of out of me.

this is true. most of your scores came from throwing deep on me. and you had a good 10 to 20 yard on my defender. my zone wasn't working so i switched to a man with 2 deep. that didn't work either. (sigh)

my QB has speed in the 80's so i run the option a few plays a game. but i quickly found that was an easy way to get a QB hurt. same with my running back. almost all my runs are to the outside and then out of bounds before taking a hit. running up the middle often ended in injury. so if you ever notice me pause the game after a play, its because i was checking to see how bad someone got hurt. :(

Hope you didn't think I was running it up on you, KcGopher. I didn't feel completely comfortable until I score that TD early in the 4th to go up 38-14. I was feeling okay in the fist half until your RB started outrunning my defense and breaking tackles left and right. I don't know where you got that guy, but if you had a team full of players like him, you would be unstoppable.

Naw. I don't like it when people do that crap to me. I was playing some dude one time online and I picked KU and he took MU. Well, the default ratings of those teams is about 20 points difference. He had the game in hand and actually called TO and a pass at the end just to score again. There was under minute or two left but I just quit. Screw that. There is a thing called being respecatable.

no not at all. and i don't mind teams scoring late in the game. i just don't approve of it if they use time outs to do so. you played a good game. congrats on the win. that running back was on the team when i took over last season. did you notice how slow my team was with the exception of him? i was shocked that i held you to a FG early on when you had 1st & GL. go me! lol

Score was almost exactly the same a the real KSU vs KU game this year. I just scored 3 more than the real KU. I tell you what, I was like "son of a bitch" when you returned the opening kickoff for a TD. I was thinking that the rivalry game thing was gonna take over. Plus, games in the snow are rough on the defense a lot of times. But I kept my composure and then you started turning it over. That always helps change momentum.

2 things screwed him, he obviously expected me to run heavy because he loaded a 4-4 stacked on the line almost every time until i burnt him 3 times. and then he only changed it up on obvious 3rd and longs. Second quarter down by 10 with 7 seconds left in the half and no timeouts he goes for it at the 12. His guy makes a diving catch at the 1, half over. I'd have kicked the fg, personally and had he it would have been a different game.

Was it not you that said if a team signs more than a few 5 stars, they might be cheating? Not that I would think that about you, of course. Just found it to be ironic.

As for the servers, I just wanted to make sure it was not me. Of course, I already knew that.

The most 5 stars I've ever seen in a year are like 15.....it depends what team you are. if a team that doesn't have a 6 star prestige or has bad pitches is signing that many then you get to the point of possible cheating.

My back to back national titles have increased my pitches and prestige to where I can do that. But I still have issues if Diddy wants to take someone from me because he has better pitches than me, if he really wanted to he could probably sign 15 5 star guys.

I caught a break in a couple of the 5 star guys I recruited had no users on them and were hardly recruited by the computer teams so they were easy gets and I didn't have to focus much time on them.

Oh by the way I have a friend who may want to join the dynasty...he just got a 360 and is still picking up the game he's been a PS2 player for years so he isn't gonna be awesome right away that's for sure.

NP. Just let me know when he is ready to join. I assume you let him know how we roll?

When I played him, I was shocked at how good his RB was. He was breaking tackles left and right. I did start defending him better after the first quarter or so.

tycobb always lets the cpu recruit for him so dont even worry about him if he's holding us up. as for travnasty, i have no clue what he's doing. my guess, he's up to his eyeballs in dirty diapers.

ya, I was a bit busy but more than anything, I needed to take a break after the "sweep the leg", ass kicking Gopher gave me. I was ashamed. If you're waiting on me over the next couple of weeks, go ahead and advance or have Gopher call me prior, and he can give you the go-ahead.

Hey Trav, you need to play your game in the feedback dynasty so that we can advance. Then I believe you play me in the last week of the regular season.
