    Post your thoughts about the game here, I just got my hands on a copy. Let me know if you want to play a game, I'll be experimenting with rosters/sliders, etc. for the next few hours.

    I've been playing Coaching Carousel with HovaTheGodMC for the last couple of hours. I like it so far, some of the goals are a little silly like Western Michigan needing to score 3 Rushing TD's in one season. Have yet to experiment with sliders.

    Also, man the CPU is much tougher this year. Just lost 31-17 to Army in my CC offline dynasty, I threw six freakin interceptions. I am having so much fun losing games lol

    ACtually I stand corrected, I'd like to use it just sometimes it may bite you in the ass if the bug comes up.

    I think it has something to do with the base pb, because I have seen people with full pbs talking about it. I used VTs book as a base for the Power I GL set so maybe theirs is okay to use

    Two things I don't like,

    I was playing with Eastern Michigan in my CC against UofM. I knew they would beat me and sure enough I was receiving a smackdown. My issue is, when down 7-35 with 2 minutes left in the game, why are the starters for Michigan still in the game? And why are they still throwing for touchdowns on 3rd and inches?

    Seems to me like EA screwed up on that one..sometimes I wonder if their programmers actually watch football. Would any of you throw the ball on 3rd & inches up by 28? I sure wouldn't

    Hate to hear that. It's been a problem for a couple of years.

    I barely adjusted the running game in terms of sliders on AA and running became quite difficult.

    USER
    RB Ability - 45
    RB Block - 50

    CPU
    Rush D - 55
    Tackling - 60

    The CPU would routinely hit me in the backfield or tackle me after a short 2-3 yard gain. Once in a while my HB would either run 7-10 yards or bust a 20+ yard run. These seem like some solid Run game sliders and think they could be used to start off. Only thing about them that is damn near impossible is running out of shotgun, never got much luck.

    Well that wouldn't be fun at all, I run my whole offense out of the shotgun/pistol

    Edit: nvm, I am getting decent yards with this set, but it is very challenging, carry on then lol

    Sheesh, it isn't the running game that's hurting me, I can't pass for anything, I have had maybe two games with less than 3 INTs

    Heck, in general the default sliders for AA are tougher than the ones we used for this OD last year, I am excited that the CPU isn't a pushover like previous years.

    Yea it just takes time to get adjusted to them, I was 2-0 with my team before I adjusted them. After that I was 2-4 before I got used to them.
