    Think we could get an answer on whether or not plays can be challenged in user vs user games?

    I should have phrased that a little better:

    Did any of the TSO game changers bring this up to them? The fact that we're unable to challenge plays in user games?

    Thanks. Also, are y'all able to discuss things that have been announced? I'm not referring to things in the link you posted. I'm talking about officially announced stuff. Like the new kickoff rules that made it into the game?

    If there was a play you thought you would want to challenge in a user game, it's either A) a good call or B) a AI glitch where you would have lost the challenge anyway. The refs don't blow calls in user games.

    I don't know how I feel about it, though. It would just add times on to user games. If anything, they should just fix the glitches that give the impression of blown calls.

    If y'all have been able to play the game under the new kickoff rules and if it really changes anything?

    Those changes weren't announced until AFTER we last were there, just from looking.

    I have always thought that was the case. And as for it adding time to user games, all they would have to do is make it "madden style" where you can challenge the play by pulling the LT. But it would need to be more like college where all questionable plays are reviewed. I know it would take up more time but then again, it wouldn't be near as noticeable if more users would quit trying to score from their own 20 with 30-45 seconds left in the 1st half. I'm guilty of it myself sometimes but it would help every game go by quicker if we would just chew the clock the rest of the half.

    Oh ok. I wasn't sure. And I know some people still haven't heard of it due to it being first announced in the NCAA podcast last week.

    I wish they'd do away with the challenges / reviewing of calls all together. It's a waste of time. If the NCAA could guarantee that the refs made the right call 100% of the time there wouldn't be a need to review plays. Well, guess what? In a video game you can assure that the ref makes the right call 100% of the time so there's really no need for this. The only logical argument would be that it adds intrigue / emotion to the game, but I'd debate that. In my experiences it just results in me mashing the "A" button to get past it and keep the game moving.

    I'd rather have the 10 seconds of my life than wait for the ref to stammer onto the field to tell me the play stands lol.

    Shaun

    1.) Do you get paid
    2.) Do they make you sign formal non-disclosure agreements since loose lips sink ships

    My only question so far is are they increasing the size of ODs?

    Bad idea. There are a bunch of ODs on this site alone that aren't full.
