    Guy and I are doing a head count here. Who all is interested in returning to Z2H for NCAA 14? Also, Guy and I have been brainstorming about league formats for the next release. What would you guys like to do for NCAA 14?

    I would be interested in returning, but I am moving at the end of the month and hopefully will have started a new job before release, so I'm not really sure how much time I will have to play. Please keep me in the loop and as I sort my personal life out some, I will do my best to give you a heads up of whether or not I can make it work.

    Well, you've been playing TCBL and S2N while not playing Z2H. Was I supposed to think you were still interested?

    I've really only been playing TCBL recently. Probably done with NCAA for this release.

    I'd like to stay true to our roots in some way, but I'm open to what everyone wants to do. Here's what Guy and I have tossed around:
    • Similar structure as before but restrict initial team selection to teams that haven't won a Conference Championship since 2000.
    • Have everyone in the same conference. Could be a smaller conference like the MWC, CUSA, or AAC or a bigger conference like the SEC or Pac 12(since no one joined either one in NCAA 13).
    • Have everyone split evenly between 2 conferences. Same conferences listed above.
    • Some combination of the ones above.
    We've been thinking about increasing the amount of user vs user competition in the league and its importance by condensing the amount of conferences we're able to be in. At the same time, it would reduce the importance or capability of rising from small schools to big schools from what we were based on.

    I personally like the idea of having all 12 users in the MWC. It's one of the few stable conferences right now with no one expected to leave or join it and then it kind of fits with playing with smaller schools(minus Boise State). There's 12 schools in the MWC so there would be no conference cpu games. It's also a different format for us and would provide some unique experiences. I think something like this would increase the importance of recruiting because you couldn't get the sure thing cpu wins to build your prestige and being in the same conference would lead to lots of battles for recruits. There are cons to it though so I'm not 100% sold on it, but I think it sounds interesting.

    And I like the idea of taking schools in the like sec and PAC and build them to powers. But I'm good with either. I would like ti see us do more user games and keep everyone engaged.

    Now if someone has another idea we are open to ideas.

    Well, you're welcome to come back for NCAA 14. Just make sure to keep us updated and not just suddenly bail and stop playing games. Some of the guys I tagged that aren't playing kept us in the loop about why they aren't playing...and that's why I tagged them.

    I'm at work and don't know all the rules for this dynasty... But if I can be Miami, then I'm down for 2014.

    First, Z2H is a premier league that requires premier membership on TSO. I'm not sure what they're planning to do this year, but TSO usually has some method for getting new members into premier leagues at around the time of the release.

    Traditionally speaking, Zeroes 2 Heroes is a league designed to start at small schools and work your way up to bigger schools. So odds are that you wouldn't be able to start at Miami if you were to join Z2H.

    Have not discussed that yet, but it always good to get in a little playing before it starts counting.
