Anyone else still playing this? This is pretty much the only game that I still play regularly. Well, I take that back. I have been playing a lot Rocksmith 2014 since I got it last month. Still, I play more NCAA 2014. They did fix some of the problems with the defense. I have found that I am able to play a little defense now. And keep in mind that I always take Kansas. Offline dynasty - Kansas. Online dynasty - Kansas. So, I don't usually start out with real great talent to be able to play defense. But I have won the NCAA title in my offline dynasty with the Jayhawks. That was probably 4 or 5 years in, though. And that was by playing good defense. Hell, I even finished the season 12-1 in my 2nd year with KU in one dynasty. Admittedly, they had some different slider settings that were supposed to be more realistic.

So here is an issue that I have run into recently. I have been in online leagues since the beginning. But one of my commissioners asked me to join another of his leagues. I joined at the preseason and am now 5-0. But there is a major problem. This dynasty makes you create your coach. I think created coaches in the online dynasties have something to do with this glitch. My coach is not gaining xp. If you go to coach xp goals, it is just blank. There are no goals and therefore my coach doesn't complete those goals and doesn't get xp.

Normally, this might not be a big deal. But since EA has made the coach xp have such a strong effect on everything in this game such as recruiting as well as gameplay issues like tackling and fumbling, this is a huge deal. I have seen thousands of posts online about this issue but no response from EA. It doesn't appear that they are going to fix this. And that means that online leagues are going to die out.

Ugghh. Anyone know if another company is going to make an NCAA football game? Or for that matter, a NCAA basketball game?
You can't buy happiness. But you can buy beer. And that's pretty much the same thing.
