    Guys,

    I have been hearing about an edited roster set that's supposed to be available today. Anyone got it? If so, I think it might be time to launch.

    I'll be home early this afternoon, and if I get my hands on the roster, I'm going to launch the dynasty and get things going.

    Any objections to that?

    AG

    No. Praying to God that they've fixed Connor Halliday tho. I've only got a fool's hope of that happening. haha

    Default I hope. The game difficulty is way different

    We'll probably roll with default rosters, and look for the first adjustment around the beginning of conference play. It'll tick up slowly, but it seems fair to start the changes at the same time when things normally get difficult for teams in real life. If scores stay down, and the CPU manages to score some points, maybe we won't adjust at all in year one, but I think it's likely that we will.

    Looks like the set I'm looking at won't be done until the wee hours, so tomorrow's a safer bet.

    You're right. I meant sliders.

    Update from buckeye02 at OS




    All teams complete...

    Sadly the new thread didnt go up last night. I think we severly over estimated the ammount of work that was left. We did get a bunch of edits done after all of the teams were named. Like.....every player listed in the dread thread now has dreads in our roster file.

    I'm back at my house and have to go back to the real world today. Gator has the file and will continue to make edits later today. I can't give you guys an ETA because the amount of editing left is still unknown and i dont want to push back aanother ETA.

    As the roster file sits right now.....it is good enough to satisfy almost everyone, but thats not why we are doing them. We want the fans of the smaller schools to be just as impressed with the work put in as the Texas', Notre Dame, and the Alabama's of the world.

    I just ask for you guys to be patient. We do have a roster file.....and it is awesome.

    The OS ones don't change anything. Just names

    But if the league agrees. Then I will too

    I'm not concerned with ratings as much as correct players. And I have their roster. It's not accurate. At least my team isn't.

    Should we just start with named rosters and roll with it? I feel like we are one of the last leagues to get going here already. From that post by Buckeye, my guess is this weekend at the earliest for his final version.

    Honestly what is the rush we got 11.5 months to play sim nation. Most leagues finish a month early so we can go past that and go till next release. Let's take our time and let a great roster set and correct patches drop first. Trust me it will save us more time to wait then to rush into this.

    There are quite a few leagues who haven't started yet I believe.

    My vote is to wait. If it's not out in the next 48 hours, I might be swayed to look elsewhere.

    I didn't mean we should base our decision off of what others have done. However out of the premier leagues there are only 2 others that haven't started yet. Z2H and one XBox league from my little troll just now. I could be wrong.

    We do get to a point tho that luv's rosters are coming out in like another week and a half. If we wait too much longer, we might as well just wait for his slick version to come.
