    The Experience

    I have decided that invites will be sent out Sunday night at 10:00 pm EST since bigrice won't have xbox access until sometime that evening and I would like us ready to go. I will give everyone until midnight EST Monday (technically Tuesday) to complete their Pre-Season activities. Until then, here are the following settings for The Experience 2014.

    1) Difficulty

    Offense: Heisman
    Defense: Heisman
    User vs User: Heisman

    2) In Game

    Qtr Length: 7 Min
    Game Speed: Normal
    Threshold: 30

    3) Sliders/Penalties

    Sliders will only be a factor in CPU games and since we will have a minimal amount of those this time around I am still working on which ones I want to use. Broth, I Peench (I think theirs are the same though) and iBleedOrange all have sliders out. I encourage everyone to test them and see which plays better. Use even teams. Still working on Penalties, all the ones I have tested seem pretty fair.

    4) Rosters

    Download the ones from either I Peench or RRAHx2 and take a look at your team. PM me (do not tag me here with changes) any changes that you would like made to your team such as a player at the wrong position, a player that is not on the team that should be or the player isn't on the team IRL. Things like that. I WILL NOT be messing with ratings or small shit like where the player is from. If you do not PM me any changes then I will not make any and you will forever hold your peace.

    5) Coach Progression

    We will be going on slow and starting from Level 1. There will be no respecs but you are free to spend your points wherever you want, but make sure you are satisfied. Don't come crying to me if you made a mistake or regret a decision. The initial perks aren't that great so you will have to deal with them if you want the really good stuff. All TimeSavers and such will also be off, we have never used them and never will.

    6) Custom Conferences

    iBleedOrange showed me a setup and I agree with it mostly except for the fact that some of the Independents were moved that are not moving anywhere IRL and Cincinnati and UConn did not actually join the ACC. If that becomes true rather than rumor I will make the changes accordingly. I will most likely make the changes as they should IRL, such as Louisville moving in 2014. Obviously Maryland and Rutgers will be moved early though.


    Start working on Previews and all other content! I will put up a new Recruiting thread once we are in Week 1. If I have forgotten anything I'm sure one of you will not hesitate to let me know ;). Reread our League Description if you want to, good way to refamiliarize yourself with our rules.

    I think we'll have more CPU games than you realize (or at least I wouldn't call it minimal). We'll all have 3 OOC CPU games, 1 division CPU game, and the possibility for a cross divisional CPU game. So we'll all have at least 4 CPU games and some of us will have 5, not counting bowl games.

    Also, as far as getting good sliders going, if all the custom conference settings work correctly, then everyone's first 3 games should be CPU games.

    I don't plan on going easy with the sliders but you make a good point.

    I agree with Hova. Maybe send out the invites early and we wait until Monday since BigRice won't be here

    I'll check out Peech's rosters and check them out today (although I'll admit I don't think I'd really know if anything was wrong).

    Get some rest over-worked. I won't be able to get on until tomorrow. The wife Shanghai'd me into helping host the monthly "neighbor" party tonight. Which basically means a bunch of adults getting drunk where they can stumble home.

    They aren't my rosters, nor are they RRAH's. I just made some slight edits to G DA BLACKSMITH. ie removed Everett Golson and replaced him with an incoming freshman MLB

    If I feel like it I can start an OD with those rosters, download them, and save them to a google doc.

    I'm not promising anything but I'll probably feel like it tonight.

    I have had ZERO luck starting an OD, as I keep getting errors while setting it up.

    I haven't tried in a couple of days but I've tried it twice with no issues before (and even simmed through an entire season).

    Obviously these weren't with your rosters though.

    I Peench bigrice25 I was unable to create an OD with Peench's rosters.

    I didn't try anyone else's today so I don't know if the difference between now and my previous success is the roster or just the time of the week.

    Seems like those rosters are glitched. Reminds me of the pasta padre early roster that boned everything a few years back.

    I just created an OD with Peench rosters and had no issues. I downloaded them around 5pm today, loaded them from the file manager and created with no issues.
