    Has anyone given any thoughts on the sliders?

    I have been playing on default sliders, and my only CPU complaint is passing accuracy. I would say on average the CPU is completing close to 75% of their passes. Of course that could just be my secondary.

    I think that the pass rush is pretty fair, though I didn't apply much pressure on the CPU without blitzing, but Im fairly certain that was my talent level.

    Overall, I don't have that many complaints on the sliders, though Kick Power should be put at 10 or 15. I have it two 57 yard FG's with room to spare.

    Anyone else have any thoughts?

    I'm going to lower kick accuracy for the user and CPU for sure. Maybe take the CPU power down just a notch.

    If we are playing on AA I'm going to up the CPU a bit and we can go from there.

    As for rosters, I'm really digging what the community rosters are starting to look like over at OS. They should be done today.

    Yes, they are basically just named rosters. The community rosters are supposed to be fixed.

    It doesn't matter to me, honestly. But I figured since we aren't starting until the patch comes out, that we should take a look at everything available.

    Looks like OS Community Rosters have about 20 teams to go. Hopefully the patch drops this afternoon like 12pm-2pm est.

    I've heard the patch is going to be released sometime around 4-5 est, but I'm not sure.

    Those of you guys that get off early today, it would be extrememely helpful if you guys can toy with sliders on AA. That why I can have an idea when I send out invites.

    As for the community rosters, I'm not sure they are messing with ratings too much unless something is completely obvious. We can adjust those if it's a huge problem.

    I know they are removing the people who aren't there anymore and replacing them with people who are (Greg Paulus at Syracuse for example).

    Don't know if we are going to get any season stuff done tonight, assuming the patch is out and the rosters are updated. I will be leaving tomorrow morning early to Los Angeles, my brother does have internet so I will be taking my Box. Hopefully there is no problem connecting I won't miss a thing.

    If it's possible could i get a bye during the 1st week? I already have 3 conference games, and Va Tech is already on the Huskers Real Life schedule. I will be back late Sat to catch up on anything that i missed. Thanks.

    Patch will be out late 2nite early 2morrow. So do we wait? It gives more time for the OS Community Rosters to be done.

    I say wait for the patch & OS rosters. I guessing the rosters should be done 2nite if not early 2morrow morning.

    Since we are launching Wednesday, I would propose as few User v. User games as possible the first few weeks so we can plow through the weeks, to get moving.

    Since most User games should be in conference, we may only have a few that need to be scheduled before conference season.

    I think we have a minimum of 4 User games, so lets stick to that and if there 4 User conference games, than no OOC USER games for that player.

    Of course this is just a suggestion.

    Thoughts?

    I say start so we can get started....I didn't really care for rosters as i know nobody on the bulldog roster anyways. I just want to play some games that count already. I say start as soon as the patch is out and just use Lan's rosters....
