    I thought we could kind of split up all the areas we want to test before starting so we could cover more ground quicker.

    For instance someone could sim seasons to check out the draft classes.

    Someone else could sim to see how progression works.

    Also if you play a head to head game with another user in our league maybe give impressions about possible slider adjustments.

    So if anyone wants to help test just say what you will test.

    Guys with EA access will get to start Thursday.

    of course i am going to review the owner CFM, so i will be able to look at the finances, funds, progressions, free agency, drafting on a general level. Probably not as deep. Will be twitching it too

    No excuse...I pay $5 for 1 month of EA Access and save 10% ($6) of pre-order. Then I use the home console set up so my brother in law and I can both have the game and split the cost.

    For the record, my previous post in this topic was rated "Awesome Content" by bawvu97 .

    That is how you go about getting re-hired. Still fired for now though.

    Each owners seems to get $2 million from shared revenue like IRL but at a much reduced amount. Green Bays financials were something like $250 million in shared revenue with $140 in player salaries.

    So, what you're saying is that this is still unrealistic.

    Cool, I guess...

    In term of how much revenue is shared IRL yes it's still off. Not enough of a look at this point to say it's not feasible to use this reelea

    The kicking was SUPER difficult. Felt like my WR held on to less of the Agressive catches. Leading WR tended to lead to massive over throws.

    Other than that....didn't feel different then AP

    Here is my results with CFM owner mode testing

    • Still doesnt make sense, if you miss the playoffs, you underpay your players...i guess that is a good thing
    • Every week you miss playoffs, its good for you
    • For some reason between stages 2-4 in the offseason, the Raiders got like $16 million unaccounted funds, didnt show up in the finance results. i guess that is what EA meant by smaller market teams getting more money. Not sure about non small market
    • I read there are some regressions issues, noticed small amounts of regressions in the offseason stages, but players in their prime like hudson or young player like gabe jackson are regressing after two years. jackson blocking stats reduced and overall dropped about 5 points
    • draft class as we know is not scalled, many 95+ receivers and cbs coming out each year
    So to the finances, again, doesnt make sense, but the ticket sales are consistent even if you suck, no more 50% capacity from what i've seen from two years of simming each week individually.

    If you dont make playoffs, you are saving in salary. Started the year at $108 million salary and each week i paid $4.4 million through 17 weeks. So 20 paid weeks including playoffs less the bye so i paid only $88 million in salary when i had $108k in salary. Perhaps that is less bonus, who knows.

    The funds will probalby still stop you from using the cap, but i ended up with over $120 million after two years with records of 3-13 and 4-12 i think, so there shouldnt be funds issues unless you want to keep upgrading your stadium.

    So after all this, doesnt even matter. The commish can add $5 million in increments to anybody, there doesnt seem to be a cap.

    So in the end, doesnet matter, you can get away this year with the funds. I rather not play owner because i dont care about all the finance stuff, coaching staff and scouting probably oenst make much of a difference. In the end, i dont think we will see problems with funds this year unless BR puts in strict rules.
