    Off-season review

    Since you guys were the 1st to get there, can someone give a quick review of the off-season.

    - Does talking players into staying actually work now? Don't have to take the file off-line?

    - Are there any studs in the "new recruits" added at the end of the year, or mostly 2-3* players?

    - Does it take about the same length of time as last year?

    - Can all 12 users actually talk in the dynasty lobby, or is it like last year and need to make a party?

    - Anything else we should know about/look out for to avoid any problems?

    Player departures actually works. Although it seemed some guys spent some significant time trying to sway players. More so than last year, but maybe that isn't a good comparison.

    "Studs" is an understatement. We had two ridiculous prospects that it seemed like everyone was fighting for. Made it really fun, it's like a mad dash to get the guy into a visit.

    It takes about the same length. I would say that the addittion of the new recruits add some time for everyone to sift through and scout them.

    We had all twelve guys in and talking. It seems to be a lot better than last year, although twelve guys talking at once can get a bit crowded. I wish they would do something like a party, so you can tell who is talking.

    The only advise I have is to save a copy of the dynasty everyweek. We had some issues where guys couldn't see the week we advanced to and had to delete the file and then redownload. Worked after that. Progression is a bitch, almost everyone on my team jumped 4-7 points. One or two guys jumped 8 points.

    For recruits in the offseason we had a good mix of average recruits and highly rated recruits. You really need to keep scholly's available to use during the late recruiting stage. It seemed like the CPU went out of its way to put a lot of users within the top 10 of the added recruits. It may not of, but it sure seemed like it.

    Within the TOP 100 we had these recruits added.

    yep my quarterback Chris McCoy who was a 5 star added prospect in the off-season turned out to have 95 break tackle.

    He's an 80 something or 78 overall at QB. It was funny, at RB he was a 76, and he was recruited as a 5-star QB.

    that DT Mutt got is a beast as well.

    you have a QB with a 95 btk rating? what's his speed? and can he throw? if he is 80-85 speed and has a decent arm he might be the most dangerous player ever

    Making a party is still best I bet Juggs, since the dynasty has to go down when it advances at least then everyone is in constant communication.

    Good that keeping players works now. I cant wait to get into season too when I have cleaned out some lockers and put new name tags above them.

    The only bad part about the party is you can only have 8 people in it.

    Actually, surprisingly the dynasty chat feature was pretty seamless once we started going. And we had all twelve guys in, instead of the 8 maximum on the party.

    dude is like a 89 true freshman, sick.

    The whole process went pretty smooth I think.

    I know, I know I was getting roasted all night and glad you guys all enjoyed yourselves. But the funny thing is I'm willing to take all the shit talking as long as I'm winning BCS Championship games. Now I know how OLawdog felt all of last year, when everyone took shots at him. The funny thing is everyone likes me, whereas for him we all hate him and his game genie. HaHaHa, Bitches.

    Flo just likes to talk about how lucky he is and he can't believe he's winning. Total playing down that he's any good. When you make the championship in the opening week tournament and then win the BCS title in the 1st season of your dynasty you can't play that down any more.

    PS - I hope McCoy gets a career ender in spring practice.

    I'll start calling you the new JR when you start hijacking my recruits.

    Bitter, table for 1.
