    Is there a way to change the defense practice playbook?

    No matter what i do, the only playbook that shows up in practice mode is the 4-3. I want to try the 4-2-5 but i have no idea how to actually make this show up in practice mode. Any ideas?

    You're answer is no.

    You can practice it out of the dynasty, but you can't actually practice it with YOUR team. Why? cuz that's how EA rolls. Don't like it? Buy the other game! Wait...

    Yeah, you can if you go to the Sim Strategy. I don't remember offhand where it is exactly but you can change your playbook on offense and defense from inside there. It will then be able for use in practice mode in dynasty. I want to say it is located where you find depth chart. Team Management?

    It's in team management > sim strategy.

    Don't listen to Murk, he's a n00b.

    murk is right on this one. The offensive playbook changes, but the defensive one stays in 4-3 no matter what.

    I'll further add that Murk is correct here. The only thing that changing your defensive playbook in team management does is change your need positions for recruiting. It won't become your default pb for games (which you can change while entering a game) and it won't be your default for practice (which you can't change anywhere).

    Also, your default practice pb isn't 4-3. It's the default pb for your team, so Michigan can only practice with a 4-3 pb, ND can only practice with a 3-4, and TCU can only practice with a 4-2-5, etc.

    oh my bad, I misread it and thought it was offensive playbook.

    Murk is still a n00b.
