Yep. Too bad he didn't get back to me sooner. You guys could have played each other. Oh well. The league should be advancing tonight if J Diddy and Crispy got their games in. Or do you guys still need another day?

It's only fair. The first game of the season I was waiting in the OU guy. I turn it off, and he comes on. My team was on autopilot, because people were waiting.
This guy comes in 30 min after i turn it off, and stomps my ass.

Crispy, USC is in autopilot. If you want to play that, let's get it done. Otherwise, I will be simming it soon.

I think it just moved ahead yesterday, but I got completely ****ed the first week, and could be ranked in the top 5 right now with a win over OU.
So I'm covering my bases. I'm paying attention to it. So please don't ever move on without me.

I will not move on without you unless I have not heard back from you for 2 or 3 days. ;) If you need longer than 5pm tomorrow, just send me a message whether it be on here or on Xbox Live (or both).

Also, I just realized that I screwed up and never went through the whole process of inviting kcchiefsman. I fixed that (hopefully) tonight.

It depends on the crispy pothead.

I will be home at 430 est., and will be ready to play. If nothing else put this guy on autopilot at 5pm. I'm guessing you are on central time?

I will be ready, and I will play with or without this guy so don't move on w/o me. Thanks.

I don't get home until around 5pm central. I have no way to advance it until then. Besides, I just sent crispy a PM. I would like to give him a few hours to respond. But I really haven't seen him post much lately so I don't know if he will get it. If I don't hear from him by later, I will set his on autopilot. If and when I have to put his on autopilot, I will IM you to let you know. ;)

That sucks, dude. Try to check you PMs here and/or IMs on Xbox Live a little more often. ;) BTW, I figure we will move on to the next week by no later than Sunday. However, 3 of us have bye weeks. So, if you other 3 get your games in sooner, we will move on sooner. And recruiting. Don't forget recruiting.

Speaking of recruiting. I just got a commit from a 3 star HB. KU and Texas Tech were 1 and 2 (I think) on his list. Sry, KCChiefsman. :p

Wow. I've got 4 4stars, committed, and at least 4 5 stars, damn near locked up.

2 5 star WRs pretty much in the bag. 2 5 star LB almost a lock.

Is anyone else having trouble with QB accuracy? Especially when trying to lead the reciever.

And I'm not talking about an over throw, I'm talking about missing the damn reciever by 20 yards. Some games my QB just will not throw the ball to WRs.

I just played ND, and had to completely stop throwing to them. Had to run the ball more,and had 100 yrds recieving with my FB.

I mean ridiculous throws WAAAY off target. it's bad.

if you are scrambling or moving your left stick at all or throwing across the body while moving it will do that
try letting go of the stick right before you pass

Nope. Pushing up on the stick into the throw, or stopping the QB, and then pushing the stick the direction I want to throw.(leading the reciever ya know.) I know how to pass, It doesn't do all the time, but I've had certain games where the AI, or whatever just won't let me throw. Hell throwing to the tight end in the flat one time he threw the ball about 3 yrds behind the line of scr. and the TE came back and caught it, and was dropped for a loss.

Most games I might have 1 or 2 errant passes, and sometimes, I mean, he just will not throw the ball on target past 10 yrds. even when I'm not tying to lead them. I won the game 42 20 but it was horrible.

if you're moving you have to set your feet before you throw then lead the receiver, play around with it on practice you'll see what i mean`

Yep, it does make a difference. The analog stick is good for leading receivers when you want, but it also can be detrimental. I am trying to get out of the habit of trying to lead when I throw to a back in the flat. Seems like when I lead them, it is not a good pass and they have to come backwards a little bit to catch it. This inevitably leads to them not getting nearly as many yards as they should have/could have or a loss in yardage.

Yeah, I played my nephew when I first got this game. He used Clemson. I don't remember much about that team other than I couldn't stop his offense with that mobile QB.

BTW, I would like to move on, too. Last I checked, we're still waiting on HC, kcchiefsman, and crispy. Tomorrow is the deadline, though.

how about a rule if you don't do anything to your team in 2 advancements you go on autopilot until you state you return?

Plus, during the dynasty can you add people, perhaps replenish the rank between seasons?

Id like to see some people come in sometime. There's a lot of good teams out there that people could pick up.

Ok, I like those ideas. First, here is what I know about our players.

HC_Chief said he would be back on after vacation. He got back last weekend and was supposed to get on and play Sunday. As far as I can tell, he hasn't been on. Not sure what's up with that.

kcchiefsman was ready to play some more games and enthused about joining our dynasty. He played his first game and I haven't seen or heard from him since. Not sure what is going on with him.

crispy told me last night that he has been really busy and that I can cut him out of the dynasty if I want. I told him I could just sim until he wants to come back. I think what I will do is autopilot his team for now until he tells me he is ready to get back into it.

skreekc never accepted my invite. He's HC's coworker so HC needs to tell him to accept that invite and he can continue with his team.

Mecca dropped out of our dynasty. But he never actually retired. I couldn't figure out a way to just cut someone loose outright. So what I had to do was change USC to my nephew (tag is Savage Breezy, in case you saw that the other night). I had him accept the invite (that got rid of Mecca - Bo Toasty) and then retire from the dynasty.

As for how often we advance, I like the ideas. Hell, I would even be willing to do it every other day(2 days instead of 3), but that is completely up to everybody how we go about doing that.

Oh, and I can add anybody at anytime. So, okcchief you can join at anytime. I will send you an invite tonight if you like. The only thing is that you can't have Oklahoma now. When you said you were getting rid of this game, HC wanted to take over OU. The teams you see in the thread starter are the only ones that are taken. You can choose any other team that you want.

He can have OU. I started to play UT last night then had to drop out. I did a bit of recruiting, but nothing major. No games played.... okchief can have OU.

I'll take whatever team you wanna give me. West Virginia works for me.

skreekc is out; he told me he won't have time to play (not surprising as he's working on a big project right now)

Lzen

As for how often we advance, I like the ideas. Hell, I would even be willing to do it every other day(2 days instead of 3), but that is completely up to everybody how we go about doing that.

Oh, and I can add anybody at anytime. So, okcchief you can join at anytime. I will send you an invite tonight if you like. The only thing is that you can't have Oklahoma now. When you said you were getting rid of this game, HC wanted to take over OU. The teams you see in the thread starter are the only ones that are taken. You can choose any other team that you want.


I could probably do every other day but I understand most people can't. Plus I think we should wait until year end to bring people in. I don't like the advantages received by coming in mid year, doesn't seem fair.

He can have OU. I started to play UT last night then had to drop out. I did a bit of recruiting, but nothing major. No games played.... okchief can have OU.

I'll take whatever team you wanna give me. West Virginia works for me.

skreekc is out; he told me he won't have time to play (not surprising as he's working on a big project right now)

2 five star WRs, 2 five star LBs, a 5 star FS, and a a slew of 4 star guys coming in. 5 committed already, and the rest are basically locked up.

Kick and punt return issues. You mean like when I punt, I can't directional out of bounds? Or the fact that my coverage team is stupid and doesn't stay in their lanes, instead bunching up and allowing the other player to return it for a TD almost every time?

I don't usually have much problems with the kick returns other than the other team always seems to get out to the 30-40 yard line. Then again, I do that, too.

Does zone coverage problems mean that guys leave their zone too often? Cause yeah, I hate that.

This dynasty is the most fun I've ever had playing football, and I'm not really a huge college football fan. Don't get me wrong, I love CFB. but, I'm an NFL guy, a Chiefs guy. I think we should fill it out, in terms of teams. We had a full bracket in the first dynasty, and it seemed more complete, but I'm itching right now to do my recruiting, and play my next game. Wondering if I am a top 8 team after my win over Georgia?

I have no desire to play someone who is going to run around the entire field with the QB, there's only a few teams I won't play because you know that person is going to do it,Ohio State and Florida come to mind. You can't tell me a person using OSU that puts Pryor in as their starting QB is a good game player.

Some teams are just frustrating like Clemson, if the person just throws screens to Spiller you'll give up 70 yard TD's.

And for kick and punt return they're suppose to be fixing how easy it is to get giant returns.

:deevee:

Have you lost any guys.....if not you're ok, guys don't usually start signing till week 8 or 9.

I'll explain the 2 recruiting exploits, the first one is keeping a guy on the phone forever, the little football at the top tells you how close a guy is to hanging up on you well the way it was if you just hard sold a most or very high and you were good at it he'd smile, now no matter what you do if you try to keep them on the phone to long they'll hang up. So you can't give 1 guy 3 hours or something ridiculous like that anymore.

Now the big one, I don't know if this is fixed or not and it could really piss people in an online dynasty off. The most 5 star players I think you can realistically sign is 11-13 and that is if you are a big time school like SC or Ohio State, and even Tennessee or Penn State as they're pretty easy to recruit to also, but a school like that. You can't pick KU and land 10 5 star guys.

But people can cheat it the way it was or may still be, you'll know if you see it. What they do is when your recruit narrows to 5 so he can visit, they have him visit the 1st game he can visit right, well after that say he doesn't commit. What they do is take him off their board, then add him back the way the game was set up if you did that you got to reoffer the scholarship and he could come for another visit, so they'd do this over and over with the top notch recruit until they got the commit, rinse wash repeat.

If he can get to a BCS bowl and win he should increase a star rating after each season in school prestige.

What you need to do with a team like KU is do that then better players become interested and also create pipeline to the best recruiting states......Cali, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, followed closely with states like Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia.

I'd tell you especially try to have those first 3, I'd try to do that with any school big or small.

California and Texas are already pipeline states for KU.

That was a good game, okcchief. I don't know what you did differently, but I could not move the ball in the 2nd half. I could have gone for it on a couple of those 4th and shorts, but I didn't want to give you any extra advantages. That can be very costly for a team like KU vs OU.

Oh well that's good then I didn't realize you had 2 major state pipelines, just be aware of who you have that is from those states so you don't lose your pipelines when they graduate, I believe you need 5 players from a state on your roster to have a pipeline.

With SC the only state I start with is Cali, I have 54 out of 68 players from Cali, so I have 0 pipelines other than my home state.

In reference to the patch:

It changes the way the game is played online. I admittedly had to unlearn some things, but I likey, likey. With the strafe catch being gone you can actually play d without dropping into cover 3 the whole team. Your qb accuracy takes a big hit while scrambling. I've seen a gazillion dropped picks I guess that evens that up.

I just played some wanker online, typical jerk off, I guess he didn't know the strafe catch didn't work anymore because he tried it like 15 times. Never punted, whenever I punted he tried the block kick action. Didn't work at all.
I won against that cheating bastard 17-14 with a fg as time expired. He probably would have beat me with strafe catch action

Penalties are still a complete joke. Shouldn't the VISITING TEAM get more offsides/false start penalties than the home team? I played Auburn; first possession, I had two false starts and a hold. I finished the game with 4 penalties, to ZERO for the visiting Auburn Tigers. :rolleyes:

If you're on the road the rivalry game is harder, in my offline one I only beat UCLA 31-10 after hammering all my other games with scores like 55-7.

With penalties if you turn some of them down you'll get better game play it's odd.

The thing I really noticed is I have a 4 star guy who is rated higher than a 5 star guy...it's odd. Also if you have anyone good try to find a way to work them into your offense, if you have alot of guys at his position and never use him he will transfer on you.

It's only about a 2 point difference, I think the most frustrating thing is recruiting a guy with a 4.31 40 and seeing his speed rating be a 85..you have to look at all those ratings when you click the thing that are A or B and so forth..

Apparently their speed is decided by a mix of 40 time and the letter on the speed, acceleration and agility all together.

Granted, I haven't played a sports game in about 10 years, but does anyone else find this game stupidly difficult? I get the feeling I'm totally missing something. I've even played with the sliders, with only minimal improvement. I'm playing on varsity, with most of the sliders turned down quite a bit. I tried playing the freshman mode, but beat everyone by 100 points. Suggestions, am I missing something totally obvious?

Also, this update you guys are talking about, will it auto-update that for me, or do I need to go out and download it.

Sorry for being a n00b.

Uggghhh. This is driving me nuts. Last night my online dynasty game against KSU just froze up.I was up 17-7 late in the 3rd quarter in that game.

Tonight, I was playing an online dynasty game in another online dynasty. I was KU and up 10-0 over OU in the 2nd quarter. This time, the game said I had lost my connection to the opponent. Then, the only option I had was to end the game. My opponent, however, had the option to finish against the CPU. I tried to play him about 4 different times with the same disconnect issue.

Do you suppose these 2 things are related?

Does your connection kinda suck? Mine never messes up but a guy who lives 2 houses up from me has the hardest time getting his to stay connected.

My connection is average. It isn't fantastic, but it doesn't suck either.

Which team are you using and what level are you playing on....

You just have to know what you can and can't do with the team you pick. I'm in my 2nd year now with USC, the first year Mark Sanchez is an 88 which means there are some throws I can't make, now after a season and an offseason of development he's a 95 which literally means I can make damn near any throw.

My defense took a hit losing players, I went into OSU faced Terrell Pryor and Brandon Saine and came out on top. Granted I couldn't stop them very well I gave up 42 points because their offense is frankly insane but I returned the favor racking up 58.

Varsity, Mizzou.

I can pretty much throw any pass that I want. Problem is, I can't do much once I catch the ball, my YAC sucks balls.

I can't run the ball worth a shit unless I turn up my run blocking and turn down their tackling.

The thing that's most annoying is my defense can't stop anyone. I'm not asking to be dominate against Oklahoma or anything, but when you're ranked is 94 or whatever it is, I ought to be able to thrash Baylor, and not have it come down to the last play.

I'm already damn near ready to having to buy a new controller from throwing it against the wall so much. I'm just scared one of these times I'm going to miss the wall and hit my plasma.

Wow you're on Varsity you need to get the hang of the game or maybe get better players..here's the truth no matter what you're defense is rated if you're guys are slow it doesn't matter you'll get moved on, or if you don't pick the proper plays.

You have a hard time running the ball because you are Missouri, they are a spread option team with nearly every play out of the shotgun and mostly passing plays....I run well but my team is straight pro style.

Well I beat Oklahoma on Heisman level 41-7...

But I dunno it may be the team you are, I can't play with Missouri I don't run the option, and I can't be a spread option team I just frankly don't play that way.

How many points are you scoring a game and how many minute quarters are you playing.....what kind of plays are you picking on defense...if you are running outside options against say Texas it's no wonder you can't run their team speed is fast especially Sergio Kindle.

I'll tip you to something if you sit in zone constantly the computer will eat you alive.

Well, like I said, I can pass pretty much at will on teams. Depends on who I'm playing. I rang up 49 on Kansas the other night. I guess I don't understand the juke moves and what not. It seems like all of my WR are just possession guys, and call me crazy, but I think Maclin is a little more than that. None of my guys can outrun anybody. I never run the option, and pass on 80% of the downs. I mean, I think MU only has 32 running plays in their playbook.

Up until a couple of days ago, I was just taking whatever defensive play Corso recommended, but I've come to realize lately that that doesn't work. I guess I just need to get better at picking which D to use.

Mecca

Um Maclin is one of the faster dudes on the game if you can't break plays with him I dunno what to tell you...he's faster than anyone I start with.

Are you using the speed burst? Here I'm going to give you an example, I'm sure Maclin has good break tackle and elusive ratings because he's a returner....Ronald Johnson my team has 94 speed Maclin is faster....I took a WR screen 65 yards with him against Ohio State...so maybe you aren't doing something right to use his speed.

Ok, now we're on to something, how the hell do I speed burst?

Also, on D, I thought X was to strip the ball. My dumbass defenders don't do shit when I try to strip the ball carrier.

You're playing this on 360 right......

The right trigger is the speed burst....just hold it down your guys run faster they get tired faster but they run faster...

I dunno I don't try to strip the ball I just try to tackle them best I can, I get enough INT's to make up for trying to strip guys.

I did but it's shitty and doesn't tell you anything.

I just googled speed burst and figured out what it was. Went downstairs and tried it, and the first time using it Perry returned the kickoff for a touchdown. I think that may help.

Minor omission on their part, why the hell would they not put that in the instruction book?

Also, I guess the patch isn't even out for PS3 yet.

Anyway, thanks for the tips.

there should be a place in the game to find game controls. I think it's under settings on the main menu.

Also, in my experiences on defense, it helps to play bump and run coverages, even when you are in zone.

I'm pretty sure that it was supposed to be today. I will check this evening to be sure. I always put that info in my message. If it is today, I will advance it this evening. I don't even get home from work for another hour and a half.

That sucks. He was my only user game left. Hopefully, one of you will make it to the BCS title game.
