    I do not remember the specific rules, is it ok if I use the default multiple defensive playbook?

    No, you can create a 'pseudo' multiple playbook but you are only allowed 2 formations aside from your base set. So if your default is the 4-3, you could do a multiple playbook and add one or two formations from the 3-4, etc.

    I thought you banned the default multiple and wanted us to have an identity as either a four down linemen team or a three...

    That's what I was trying to say. I thought I updated the rules for this....but then I remembered that none of you guys read them....

    Disregard what I said and follow face's post. I'll update the rules today if this information isnt in there.

    k, I remembered the rule about custom playbooks I just did not know if multiple none custom was still an option since it is so limited in both 3-4 and 4-3. Where as with a custom playbook you can have every 3-4 and 4-3 play.

    Yeah, the resolution we came to in season 2 was that you could have a custom defensive playbook, but you had to start with either the 3-4, 4-3, 3-3-5 or 4-2-5 as a base. You could then add up to 2 formations from a similar 3 or 4 DL concept to that playbook. So you could add 2 4-2-5 formations to your 4-3 playbook, for example.

    Thanks to the EA screw job my custom playbook was destroyed. New playbook is going to be Ace and Shotgun formations. Will post specific forms a little later when I am satisfied, should be tonight still.

    WSU will be rolling with the Hog Wild Playbook with some modifications, I don't think I ever listed the complete formation list, will do so today. At the moment we will roll with the 4-3 and defense, I may customize the PB by inserting the 2-4-5 instead of the 1-5-5

    I had a custom playbook but I think it caused the disconnect issue cougs and I had last night. I'll be using one of the default playbooks, I have to find one though.

    should we scrap the custom playbooks this season to see if it helps with the game freezes?

    NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I do not know if I have it in me to do playbook searching, these days are behind me.

    do we have any facts about this or are we just bowing to pigeon superstition? Besides its probably the buggy as crap defensive playbooks that are doing it. :)

    I'm beginning to think so.

    Some guys in the experience just had an issue where the same 2 players got disconnected 2-3 times in a row, with both using custom playbooks. Then they both played with default playbooks and the game goes fine. The Deuce has had less issues with freezes/disconnects than any other league (aside from bowl games, there are maybe 1-2 guys who have had any issues with it) and none of them use custom playbooks.

    whygodwhy1111 - For reference, in both my game vs Jface and vs cougs (both had disconnect issues) I was using a default 3-4 playbook.

    If we start seeing any more disconnects in user games where people are using custom playbooks we may have to get rid of them until EA fixes it. I know it sucks, but it's better than the alternative.
