    4-2-5/3-3-5

    Are any of you looking to use either of these as your base defense? I just want to know if Perry and I need to spend time game testing these defenses to determine if they will be allowed.

    As an FYI to Shino and Pep, the 3-3-5 as a base defense was banned site wide last year. Some OD's allowed the 4-2-5, but many banned that one as well. There were too many issues with AI blocking not correctly accounting for the SS's.

    I'll probably play around with each defense before dynasty but more likely I'll go with 4-3 or 3-4. I base it on my team's strengths and I doubt Ohio State will have personnel for 4-2-5 with the current rosters. Plus I know my team is loaded at LB so it wouldn't make sense at this point.

    It will depend on how the final roster looks for me but as of now doubt I'll use either

    while we're on the topic:

    My major concern isn't formations really it's game planning. In my personal opinion that was the gayest part of NCAA 10. The aggressive settings in particular but I think they were all kinda dumb. Will those be allowed?

    Nope..... Not many teams use them, and I will not either. If the O-Line blocks the 3-3-5 correctly this year, then I doubt many people will want to use the formation anyway as it's advantage will be taken away...

    Maybe you guys won't need to spend any time testing.

    One of the things I plan on testing tomorrow (when I get the game and am off work all day - yay!) is game planning. In the demo I didn't notice a considerable advantage in using aggressive on anything over leaving it at default, but I need to see how it works for an entire game to be sure.

    I also plan on looking at recruiting, from what I'm hearing it's plenty challenging on AA so maybe that's where we will start.

    I will be using the 4-3 but Florida State does have some packages within their 4-3 for the 3-3-5 but I dont use it often if at all.

    Anybody want to help me test some recruiting tomorrow? I'd like to start an online test OD and blast through a couple years of recruiting to test out the CPU and how progression works. If we could get a few of us to spend a couple hours on it, one person could take a top team, one a mid-tier and one of us a lower tier team to see how difficult it is on various slider settings.

    I am hoping the copy I ordered from EA is waiting for me when I get off work. If not I will be picking up at Midnight and returning EA copy to Gamestop in following days.

    Either way I should be able to play a game tonight.

    Ok hopefully you will be on. Idk how long it will take me though. I just got word from my buddy that our local gamestops list has hit 60 players. And they decided not to cap it at 32 again this year. Thankfully though they are gonna have 2 360s and 2 PS3s running.

    Yeah it depends, if not I'm sure we'll have plenty of time to play before leagues start rolling out.
