    Okay folks, lets get this thing underway and pray that nothing goes wrong. Like seriously. Only JohnGalt still needs to join the file and he is joining tonight.

    Over the past couple days I've been organizing things and getting things ready, its time to get rolling.

    First, here are our settings & the recommended settings to avoid any confusion or funny business by the CPU. Some of these settings you won't have and they are league wide settings but I'm posting them for your own information as well.

    LEAGUE SETTINGS
    Instant Starter = ON
    Salary Cap = ON
    Skill Level = All-Pro
    Quarter Length = 9 Minutes
    Accelerated Clock = Off (until its patched/fixed)
    Minimum Play Clock Time = 20 (ignore until acc. clock is used)
    Game Speed = Normal
    Player Progression = Weekly
    Coach Firing = On (if we move to Coaches this should be Off)
    Game Play Tuning = Yes
    Injury = On
    Pre-Existing Injury = Off
    Trade Type = Off (this will cycle between on & off to try and prevent CPU crazy shit)
    Relocation = Users only (we don't want any CPU crazy shit, lol. Are you sensing a theme?)
    League Type = Owners only (for now, unless we switch to coaches)
    TEAM SETTINGS (these should be team/user specific so you can make your own choices)
    Autostrafe = OFF
    PreSnap Menu = ON
    Coaching Tips = ON
    Player Names = Pre Snap
    Heat Seeker = Off
    Ball Hawk = On
    Switch Assist = Off
    Camera Settings = Standard
    On Field Feedback = ON
    Defensive Indicator = ON
    Passing Cam = OFF
    Kick Aiming Arc = ON (if I could police it this would be off but since I can't its on)
    Previous Play = ON
    Button Layout = Y,X,A
    Camera Toggle = OFF
    Tutorial Popups = ON
    CPU SETTINGS (you should follow this strictly to avoid crazy shit)
    Fill Roster = OFF
    Re-Sign Players = OFF
    Progress Players = OFF
    Sign Offseason FA's = OFF
    Simulate Game Prep = ON (just because you don't want this going to waste)

    Now onto the other housekeeping items
    • EDIT - Yes I suppose its okay to go ahead and start trimming your roster. I had a different plan for how to do it thus I was asking people to hold off but feel free to cut players. Injuries will be turned off for preseason so the goal is to get to 53 soon.
    • Teams that signed players BEFORE I told you to - you are officially on my shit list for not following directions. Please visit this thread to see which players are not in FA but are still eligible for waivers. I am trying to get these owners to rectify the situation quickly.
    • Make sure you check out the Schedule - mark your calendar now for the Draft date. The schedule has all your important upcoming dates.
    • Here is the thread & form for Waivers. Please ask your questions now. Thread
    • Please submit your playbook selections over in Moz's Playbook thread
    • I will get a DaddyLeague site setup in the next couple days. For the new guys, here is our old one in case you want to poke around and get a feel for the functionality/reason we have one.
    • Trading is NOT open yet. The commissioner team still needs to review the trade tiers and such. I know everyone is anxious - it will be SOON and then the floodgates can open.
    • I will create a trade tracker soon as well to keep track of things (if someone wants to help that'd be great.)
    • Confidence is reset for all teams PRIOR to Waivers being processed. This is mostly to fix the Legacy Players with 0 confidence.
    • Yes, it is important that you clear your trade block every week. If you need help with this or don't understand please let me or the commissioner team know. We are taking no chances. Yes the commissioner team is disabling trades @ advance but until this is patched I'm going to try and be EXTRA cautious to avoid players flipping teams unintentionally. This will make trades pretty difficult to pull off this year but its the only way I can think of to be absolutely sure we avoid that horrible bug.
    Okay, I think thats it. We are just a couple days away folks. By Friday evening we will be rolling. If you have any questions or are confused please talk to me or the commissioner team or your HAW league-mates NOW.

    Keller can we get Trading turned on? Trades by CPU only happen when advancing weeks. Trading helps people see total number of players and financial impact of trade proposals.

    Would hate to agree to a trade, submit to TC, then find out can't based on Cap. Then both parties have to submit new trades to TC with other teams, etc.

    I'm not asking for trading to be open for everyone to bombard the TC. Just turned on in game so we can evaluate financial implications of trades we have proposed.

    I'll be at work until about 9:30 tonight so if I get any players from the waiver wire I won't be signing them til then, so just asking people to hold off if you see a player that I was awarded. Thanks

    And Brian wonder's why I ignore him all the time.

    Exhibit A. I tell him no and he leaves me negative karma.

    I put that I disagreed.

    You ignore me because you're a Douche bag and I call you on it. I understand it and I get it.

    I'm here because I like playing 90% of the people in the league.

    Don't like dealing with you. You've got too much of a god Complex when it comes to this.

    The commissioner team is trying to come up with some tweaks to the system before implementing it and opening the floodgates. I realize it isn't ideal and people are frustrated. Unfortunately I'm doing the best I can with limited free time at the moment.

    Moz and I have a tentative "chat" setup tonight to go over it and try to come to some sort of a resolution since its such a hot topic.
