Going to talk about some feedback I have been getting from you guys and hopefully answer some questions. So post anything you got and I'll get to them. Recruiting: - Holy crap it's difficult. Been through 4-5 seasons with various team and various coaching levels. Will talk more about the differences later. I haven't been able to nail down a solid strategy yet. - There is no toggle for recruiting difficulty. In my experience it isn't needed as you will definitely struggle to land the guys you want to land. That may change as I (or we) get better at recruiting, but for now it's a pretty good happy shmedium. - As far as strategy goes, I'm going to have to do a separate article (once I figure it out). There are so many dynamics, it's crazy. - You must focus on locking other teams out and signing guys during the regular season. You will only have enough points in the offseason retain/flip 2-4 players. If you are banking on more than that, I'm sorry to tell you that you will have to choose. - It's almost impossible to target gems without scouting them. Unlike last year where you could just look at the schools they are interested in. I tried that same strategy and was less than 15% successful. I spoke a lot with the dynasty devs at the CEs about this. It killed scouting for a lot of people last year. Let's also talk about visits for a second: -Scheduling visits later in the season gives you 100-300 point bonus on average. - There are several dynamics that come into play when scheduling visits aside from what order they are from the recruits perspective. Competitive and complimentary visits discount and add bonus points based on who is visiting that week. This complicates things as you will have to not only schedule around a recruit's unbooked weeks, but also the weeks where you don't have guys coming in that would qualify you for the competitive visit penalty. - There is a coach skill that improves your bonus points on a visit. Pretty powerful as it can allow you to make up critical ground on a guy with a good visit. Likewise, it can also help you lock other teams out (and thus stand a good chance of landing a commitment). Coach Progression: - Here are my results from the coach progression testing I have been able to do. Slowest: Earned about ~8500 points in a season. Was a lvl 27 HC to start and didn't even earn enough to buy an upgrade. My level up was 30000 points or something to that effect. Normal: Earned about ~ 16000 points in a season. Was a lvl 6 HC to start and earned 5 upgrades. Level-up was about 3500 points (on avg). Fastest: Earned about ~ 21000 points in a season. Was a lvl 27 HC to start and earned 7 upgrades. Level-up was about 3000 points (on avg).
