ATTN: Updated Rules I've played some different people here lately and realized we need some tweaking. If you haven't read the Rules thread pinned above, you need to do so and reply that you understand. These alterations I'm about to post here are pretty cut-and-dried. It will take more than majority over-rule for me to reconsider. I'll have to be convinced it isn't for the better of the OD. The main rules adaptations are Strategy/Game Planning-based: On Defense Pass Commit - We can only use Pass Commit one time per possession, not per set of downs, as opposed to in any passing situation. The DE's become 99 OVR in most of these situations. I feel it's just a little too extreme to use this freely. This way, when you want make a big stop on a passing down, you have to use it wisely, and the Offense will know there's one that can be used so both O and D users will have to use more true "strategy" and the other option is banning it altogether. I'm guilty here so I'll be one of the main ones to tighten up. Run Commit - I'm not seeing any need for this anymore. The OL is the most flawed part of the AI and Run Commit torches it so IMHO, it should be history. Aggressive Game Planning - I'm still working on this but so far, Jump The Snap should be outlawed. The only time I can see using any of the aggressive is late game/comeback situations. There are certain Aggressive options that can be used that actually make it risky for the D to attempt like Pass D where you go for the INT's. I've been burned using this. I don't really like the big hit as much either but the Aggressive Gameplanning will be open for discussion. The purpose of this is I've finally seen what goes on with the above mentioned topics. It's like the boost the players on the field receive makes them way better than they actually are. I want ratings to matter so we need to tone down a lot of this stuff. I still want people to play aggressively if they want an aggressive, attacking play-style but using these gimmick features EA puts out isn't the way. I'm guilty of it myself. I want Defense to be a big part of this OD since I feel the best D in the country is played in the SEC. We just need to tighten up how we do things. I think we all pretty much agree that we run a Base D of a 4-3 or 3-4. If there are any other legit D's, let me know. Multiple is fine but the 1-5-5 is banned completely. Also, someone made a great point about signing up for Season Showdown. This way we can see if anyone is breaking the rules. I don't think we'll run into any trouble but what if we picked up someone dishonest? How would we ever know. I'd appreciate it if everyone would sign up for SS. Any questions of any other concerns, feel free to post here or pm me. I'd like to see them here if possible.
