    LTP available for DL

    whoever's home let us know how it is!

    this will help with the recruiting mostly...and i believe some game tuning updates like those LB's trying to swat passes down...etc.

    it should include ...

    • Increased the default starting values for all Recruits.
    • Slightly increased progression for low and mid tier teams.
    • Tuned CPU recruiting to prevent teams from signing too many players at any one particular position.
    • Increased CPU's focus upon needed positions in recruiting.
    • Top schools will sign 5 star prospects earlier in the season.
    • After a recruit Soft Commits, any CPU team that is not ranked in the top three will spend significantly less time calling the recruit.
    • Addressed an issue with big lineman jumping too high and deflecting passes.
    • Tuned ESPN U Top 150 Players to be more in line with actual top 150 recruits by decreasing the number of Fullbacks and Kickers.
    • Tuned Field Goal, Kick Offs, and Punting in Super Sim.

    so i don't think its the LBs they're fixing. instead its the DL getting super air and batting passes down at the line.

    i hadn't heard about this until last week either.

    basically it looks like EA built a system into the game that allows them to tweak game play and things like recruiting on the fly without the need for a full blown patch - and they intended to issues these updates regularly.

    yes, Russ took me on a tour of this tool in March and it was incredible. The granularity to which they track and can tune anything was impressive.

    Give props to EA for implementing this system which basically bypasses the need for a big patch. Very impressive. I

    i hate being right all the time lol.

    on that topic, did anybody see the "programming video games is wicked hard!" post from a couple of weeks ago. I got a kick out of it, basically making excuses for bugs and shitty programming.

    gonna have to see if that works with my boss next time i fuck something up.

    "yeah ... but its really complicated. i mean you really can't expect me to get it right all the time - there's literally millions of things that can go wrong! its a miracle we get it right in the first place, really."

    I'm kinda bummed that the tuning joint doesnt affect recruits for this season. So basically all the 3 star cats that we have been grabbing will be rated in the 50's and probably useless. :(.

    No they made the recruits come in a tad better and they progress better so they won't necessarily be in the 50's or so, they probably won't be many 90's in thus class though

    btw it wasn't like the old guys were 50s and the same guys would be 70s now. based on the charts EA posted the average player is about 2 to 5 points higher than before the patch coming in.
