    Houston we have a problem. WGW could not get into the OD tonight so I kicked him out and tried to reinvite him. When I did this I got the ole' TF. No big deal, got out of the OD, went back to log back in and our league had disappeared.

    So I had to use the saved file I had to recreate the OD, losing everything done in week 1. You don't need to recreate your coach, it should be saved. Invites are out.

    With the user games, I'll give the winners the option to replay the user or play the CPU. Sorry guys, this TF takes the cake!

    Fuck, we have another problem...I cant get anyone in the league with a 3 star program. I've simmed week 1 and am going to see if the changes will take affect week 2. Our only other option is to restart or pick 2 star teams in week 1.

    OK, here is the deal. If you are a 3 star school, you are gonna take a sim week 1. If this is not cool with everyone, the only other option is to restart or take 2 star team. Reese and I tried several times to try and get the 3 star school in week one but it didnt work. Once I advanced to week 2, he was allowed to join.

    Invites are out...

    Ok guys i think recc has found a work around. When he advances to week 2 all of the 3 star teams can pick there team. So we think our only option, without restarting all together, is to sim the 3 star teams week 1 games and we can all join in week 2. I think this only affects boda. Boda needs to do recruiting but not play the game.

    Didnt know recc was posting the exact same message.:D

    Ultimately its up to the 3 star guys on what they want to do. Take a sim, take 2 star team, or restart...the rest of us can get in week 1.

    Ill take a sim. Dont really care about the game, I would think that I would win, but sucks that im leaving the cpu to recruit... God knows what they will do. But this does seem to be the only way around it

    Do you need to change the teams allowed? For CC?

    He did that. He was trying just about everything, but it wouldn't work. I wouldn't mind a restart with 2* teams just because we know more about how CC works now. But I lost my week 1 game anyways, so it really is up to the other 3* teams.

    That's assuming that people are experiencing fewer issues with leagues that have been restarted. I actually like my team and lost in week 1 anyways. Not to mention, I am planning on applying for every job I can after this year anyways, so recruiting doesn't matter that much to me in this season.

    I just feel that it might be the most equitable thing to do. You can view how good or bad your team is now, you know the risks of not re-signing your deal, etc.

    I'm good with whatever is decided though.

    I just logged into the dynasty, I guess my question was pretty stupid....lol

    I would much rather take the sim and get back in week 2 with the current file.

    If we have to restart or if this messes up much of anything, I may be out. Just a heads up

    For some reason, its stuck on 2 stars for week one...when I advance to week 2, the changes kick in. My concern is with the file itself now. I just don't know if its corrupt or because we started so soon we are now getting the issues that many other leagues have had. If this had a happened a few days ago I might have went a tirade but luckily it didnt.

    Do we take the chance that this wont happen again and plug along or restart? I guess that is the ultimate question. Im gonna create a poll. I realize if we restart some of you may leave and I completely understand that. But I can't take much more of this transfer fail stuff and spending 3 plus hours again online, playing games that don't count and rebooting an OD that may or may not be screwed anyways. Does that make any sense to you all?

    I think that sums up my concerns pretty well. I am scared that a restart is inevitable, and, if it is, why not restart now?

    My guess would be that since the save file only permits 2 star teams, somehow in EA's mind when you create a new OD using a save it must remain with the original rules. Just a guess, but its probably "working" just the way its designed and isn't actually a glitch or flaw. Just shitty programming.

    So if we stay with this dynasty then would all of our coach prestige's go back to D+ or whatever they start at once we rejoin?

    They should stay at where they were but im not certain...all of our coaches are still there thats why you dont need to create a new one. You should still be the OC @ UAB (you meaning your coach)
