    I always view a restart of a league as the last resort, as nobody likes erasing all their time and effort put into a season, and not to mention time spent recruiting, but I feel we may have no other choice at this point. Persuading players was broken for a lot of you, and now MaslerBoros16 is telling me that he gets 0 points from 4 recruits (we are now in week 1). A lot of bowl game wins went out the window as well.

    Be looking out for another set of invites here shortly. You may shuffle teams around a little if you want to roll with somebody different, it will still be the concept with the ACC vs B1G and 3 users in each division.

    I'm sticking with VT lol. At least it was only one season. Also we may want to look into sliders as the patch seemed to make the CPU a little easier imo

    I back Fuzzy on this decision as I helped make it. The most points I got on a recruit was 173, 60 minutes on a 2 star...that's pathetic and he gave me a big fat red zero for the scholarship offer even though I was #1 on his list - Soft Committed.

    I'm sticking with MSU and think we can get through Season 1 quickly to make up for lost time.

    Thanks again EA...you've really outdone yourself. Fight glitches with more glitches

    Yeah not a bad idea. I'll admit I know nothing about slider sets this year. Any ideas guys?

    I don't oppose a reboot as new files seem to be working better

    I'm going with NO custom playbooks and NO supersim from the web, just to be safe and assured that those two things aren't causing us problems in the future. Custom pbs were fun while they lasted, but it's not that big of a deal to do without them. All-American difficulty and recruiting, 8 minutes quarters. No CCs of course. I use Mustangs84 roster, there are some slight changes.

    I'm still open to slider suggestions, MaslerBoros16 send a link to yours my way. Sending out invites now.

    Every game is a challenge even vs low teams, I usually don't win by more than 7-14 points. I have the occasional blowout but I am only OC so I can't control the D. But this offensive set really works for me. So yes it is possible to win but it's also possible to get blown out very easily.

    If we're starting over then I'd like a new team. It just wouldn't be fun for me to play essentially the same season over again.

    So is mine. I believe this is across the board though so no need to worry. These roster have only a couple guys above 95 and a not too many above 90 to fix progression issues where there are tons of 99 OVR players years 3-4 due to the release rosters. Every team on the game is probably a couple points lower. I went from a 90 to an 88

    Would I be allowed to use Nebraska or are they too highly rated?

    They are 89 ovr. VT is a 91 and MSU is 89 so I would think not.

    I had several good recruits lined up in the previous dynasty but we have restarted now. Sucks for me because I had a young team who many would have been seniors in the upcoming season and I also missed out on a prestige gain. So I just want to start off with a better team, don't feel up to struggling through another season (recruiting wise) with a lower prestige team.

    There are a few teams that were off limits in season 1 last year because of distinct recruiting advantages, and FSU is one of them. Could you please select another team?
