    Personally I hate the idea of using them now. From the get go I would be all for it, but now where the 2014 would class would be the 2016.... No thanks.

    I'd rather just keep doing it the way we're doing it. I sorta echo Kaspers sentiment that I'd be down with doing it if it mirrored our current season, but at this point its sorta meh.

    Unless there's a glaring issue with the generated classes, no reason to switch now.

    Personally I would prefer the Ncaa Classes then to Ea generated classes.

    We use em in TLY, it's cool to see guys you know but also I will say it's interesting with it and a lot of surprises ratings wise. I'm perfectly fine with doing either option.

    They are nice, and with the patch everything translates well. Nice seeing familiar names, but I think it's too late to switch now.

    would the NCAA draft classes be random and therefore if there is a draft guide out there - wouldn't it be useless?

    Seems like a great idea - it would eliminate the advantage the people that are using draft guides are receiving - in fact I think that this should definitely be done;

    That is correct , but I think some of us fear tinkering with shit may break the file or whatnot . I know I don't trust it.

    has anyone used the draft classes - fixing the draft guide issue is a huge deal in an online dynasty

    For the record, I vote no to using "real" players from an NCAA file. Now, if we just used something like the 2019 class or something off NCAA I am all for that. As OMlawdog said it would eliminate guides.

    We can make up storylines if we really want that part of the experience.

    The game uses the real names but each individual player's ratings are random, every time. Teddy Bridgewater is still the top quarterback prospect.....still projected as the first quarterback, but his ratings will be different every time. So you must scout and there isn't a draft guide.

    That is just crazy - so you are ok with drafting a guy name Mack Truck or Cody Covermen, but if you draft Teddy Bridgewater in the 2016 draft, for some reason that is a problem?

    Guys - we are talking about fixing the biggest issue in any online dynasty - draft guides and how to fix the problem. How is this a close call?
