    I am almost done with this game...

    Complete Bullshit is what i call this game. FSU I am fine losing to them they played better even though they went for everytime near there 50...

    Miami on the other hand is a pile of shit on Defensive and Offense and the only reason i lost was because they returned 5 Fucking Kickoffs for TD's before i said fuck it and started SS KO. 5/6 KO were returned and i had no controll over any of it.

    I can't take Bullshit like this for much longer...

    Did the guy just make too many moves? Too good of blocking?

    Some people have been saying that tweaking with CPU RB ability can effect kickoffs some, wondering if that was the case here and how we could fix it. Anyone else seeing supermen on KOs?

    I have herd about this in other leagues, I just played LSU and they brought 2 back against me but they do have one of the best KR's in the game.

    I haven't had a problem yet either, but I don't know what the new sliders have done.

    kick to the middle this year not the numbers.

    But you guys could have muffed up the sliders.....that seems rather excessive.

    The sliders are changed in our side league Im not sure what juggs changed them to. But were in conf-usa and i have had 4 returned for touchdowns against me in the last 2 games. And a coupe that were like 70+ that I got just before the goal line. BBJ I know what your feeling that is some bullshit.

    In my game it seems like 3 or 4 guys get knocked down all at once.

    Supersim your ko's till you get the sliders right.

    I have not had a problem either with KO......the only problem I do have is that damn Lawdog winning every f--k--g game. Still trying to get over that loss to you. I got out coached and out game called.

    I feel your pain BBJ. I have come close to throwing my controller through the TV on SEVERAL occasions this year. Last year I never felt that way playing against the CPU (playing against other users, on the other hand...). I know there were the one or two "superman" drives by the CPU every game last year. But this year it really seems like the CPU is just destined to win some games from the moment you kick off, and they will "cheat" in whatever ways necessary for that to happen. If it wasn't for the guys in this league, this game would already be out of my XBOX and sitting in its case waiting to be traded in for Madden.

    In the side league, I only bumped cpu rb ability and run blocking to 55. i wonder if such a small shift really makes that much a difference in kickoffs. if so, that sucks!

    There is some disscussion on OS about this small shift in sliders.

    my best strategy is to kick it down the middle.. it seems the kick coverage is much better.... than kicking it to the numbers.... i kick my KO's kinda short and down the middle against the better than average returners... it seems to have worked so far....

    I can't speak to the problem that BBJ had in the game, the longest kick return against me was by Bogey and Jamare Holland.

    Though some people are frustrated with the CPU, the biggest problem that people are having with the CPU is that they are pretty good. I don't think this is a problem, this is a good thing. Towards the end of last year the CPU was getting beat by an average of 30 points at least.

    Now constant kickoff returns is a problem, I have had two before against me in a game, but I agree that it should be a rarity.

    My gameplan was figured out in the 2nd half against USC with USC dominating in the second half. If that game was 5 minutes longer, Im not sure I hold on.

    It was a big win for the UCLA program though no doubt, and just need to survive the gauntlet of Big XII games against Mizzou, A&M and Nebraska. Having so many user Conference games is not going to be easy.

    I agree. I don't want 2 make any adjustments where the CPU games are cakewalk for user teams. I think we should just watch for the KOs problem to see if its happening to every1. All games I have played so far, the returner nevr got past their 35 yd line, whether I'm kicking it down the middle or to the numbers. Only once did Oklahoma take a kickoff to my 5 yd line. But it was Oklahoma.

    All of Benjamin's returns were to the middle.

    on all of the kickoff my coverage team were on their back and the returner have a 6-8 guy escort to the end zone. its the reason i lost the game and thats what pisses me off. I can understand 1 even 2 KO, but 5/6 of actual KO being returned is a bit ridiculous....

    Well it seems that the KO return problems people have had is with the blockers just pancaking an entire side of the field. I'll cut the CPU blocking ability back down and give a slight bump to the RB ability and see if we can tip the scales back.

    If a guy returns a kick, he needs to earn it by breaking at least one tackle AND having great blocking.

    i am openly hoping NO ONE is asking for the CPU to be turned down.... its great they are competitive finally... the kick returns thing sucks but the competitiveness is great.... i wanted Oklahoma again..... i dont think they can do that again.... i played them offline and ran up the damn score......

    CPU Run Block at 55 or higher = KO Returns for TD

    you may not see them right away, and you may not see 5 in one game, but eventually you will see them more then is acceptable

    It just happened to me 3 total KR Tds, their total sp. team yards were; 350 to my 16. It was kinda funny seeing them get blasted. I think the only reason I had not noticed it was two user games and a bye week. Don't know if this information helps out Drifter.
