Me neither, but then again, I've lost two games.  noidea

Have BC next, hopefully will be another win.


edit: Didn't get on this weekend, was too busy.  I'll try to get my game in tonight, but with football practice, may not.  Could you wait till Wed morning if I can't get on tonight?

Re: Dynasty Week 7 


Actually got my game in last night.  Forgot to get on here to post it.  Beat BC 36-24 I think.  Defense came through again.  I was up by 10 in the 4th quarter and had already switched to my 2nd string (before they scored their final touchdown and it was 34-17 with 3 something minutes).  So I figured that after my failed drive and punt, and they were on the 10 with a little over a minute remaining, that it would be fine to leave my 2nd string in.  After an incomplete pass and a sack, it was 3rd and 15 or 16 on the 1.  I blitzed and got the QB in the end zone, but I was offsides.  So then I just called up a cover 3 zone on 3rd and 11, and got a jumped snap and sacked the QB in the endzone again.  That was my 2nd string D.  I think I allowed somewhere around 25 yards rushing and a little over 100 passing.  Defense both 1st and 2nd string were great.  My running game is really picking up too.

Do you have the threshold set to 0?  There have been a few times where my running back has been run down where I think he should have broke for a TD and a couple times with the CPU is running and I can't catch up to them at all.  My running back has 89 speed or something, and I figured when he got in the open, that he'd be able to out run the D.  Maybe I'm wrong.


edit: They ran 16 times for 25 yds, 1.56 avg.  I ran 46 times for 259 yards with a 5.61 avg.

Re: Dynasty Week 7 


Threshold is the first thing I would change.

I think all of the settings are default. Someone on mich st ran down denard Robinson from behind on a breakaway last game. That just doesn't happen in real life. But to be fair one of the mich DBs had 97 speed so based on the stats that was possible.

Are we playing all American mode or varsity? I thought it was all American but the piece of crap website says varsity. Prob just another website bug.

Im going to say its varsity its way to easy. I dont like the 7 min quarters, most of the time I just auto sim defense because its gets so boring, and I know i can pretty much score every drive.

It's definitely not hard but I didn't think it was varsity easy.

Looked and it was on varsity- I was positive that it was on AA. My bad guys.. I also think going down to 6 min quarters as well. I changed the threshold from 20 to 0, I noticed the same things.

Also- only waiting on GT

Can you change the difficulty mid-season or are we still going to wait?

Personally I don't mind the 7 minute quarters.  Especially for user/user games.  I definitely wouldn't go below 6 min quarters.  Possessions in human games can easily last several minutes.

Yeh I just bumped it up to AA - I agree that it seemed easy, just not varsity easy.

On another note, I noticed a lot of closer user vs. cpu games the past week or 2...fluke?  some sim play going on?  just caught my eye..
