A few thoughts after about 10 games vs the cpu. I am wondering if others are finding this? Yes I am using Va Tech in all these games on AA default sliders The running game vs the cpu is easy for the most part. It gets harder if you run alot b/c the cpu will key in on it more but all in all you can run for about 5 yards a carry with an above average running back. The passing game feels good. I don't have many complaints here but I do see very high completion percentages from my fellow Traditioneers. I can only imagine it will go up. So that worries me a bit. On defense stopping the run is tough but doable.....need more games get more accurate information. I like that the cpu has stopped running 20 QB options. I do feel that if you don't blitz it is VERY hard to get pressure and the CPU QB will find someone open. Very similar to playing a human. It seem like I must blitz at least one LB or manually control a DE. Still the CPU QB can pick you apart badly. Much improved from last year. The cpu will actually burn you deep this year. Why can't I knock balls loose from the CPU??? Why do defensive players are going for fumbles more this year? The extras. I haven't messed around too much with the Gameplans but i did try and few things and haven't had much affect. I am not sure how much i will mess with it as I think it is a bit stoopid. The defensive keys are kind of annoying. Are they are defensive boost?? Who is not going to use it on every 3rd and long (passing)??? If you guess right on a run play it works like 99% of the time. If you guess wrong thats a different story. i just generally dont like it and i feel like i am cheating a bit. I like the classic chess match game. The player with the better play calling or better passing reading skills or running skills should be successful on offense and defense. Last thing is user skills on defense have been a bit removed. The def line play is better but roaming the field as a slower LB is not as effective as last year. Roaming as a quicker SS or FS seems to be the better choice. Anyway I just I would put down some random thoughts about NCAA 10.
