    As Twist and Dru can attest, the file for T3 is massively screwed up. The offseason advances went surprisingly smooth but lately it takes between 20-60 minutes to get the file to properly advance between weeks. It doesn't even fail at the same spot anymore and I have gotten a variety of different error messages.

    What I would like to try is getting everyone to retire from the dynasty after an advance and then have a different member restart the league from the saved file. In order to prevent any delays it would be preferable if we could get everyone online on at the same time, fairly close to an advance. This would also allow us to better coordinate the plan.

    Sticking with planned advance schedule, the advance to week 5 should be around 9 PM EST tonight and week 6 will likely be around the same time on Friday.

    @bravejaf - vandy and I have a user game in week 5, so there is a chance that may not get in on our usual 24 hour advance (I think it likely will but just FYI).

    Either way I'm around most nights just let me know. If we can get gamertag logins for guys who can't be there I'm sure you, me and twist could deal with those.

    I am free tonight, but Friday nights are usually a no go. But Brave has my gamer info if needed.

    I am not available for tonight, but I am on Friday, someone always could log on as me and retire me from the dynasty if it was done tonight

    We could also just take a one day break to let everyone retire and then reboot the file once everyone has left the dynasty. Right now I'm thinking about doing it after the week 5 advance. As long as people can log on at some point on Saturday to retire, we could reboot the file later that night.

    Once we do reboot the file everyone needs to go into their XBox memory and make sure there isn't any old copies of the dynasty floating around.

    Leave it to me to be late to the party, lol.

    I went ahead and played without reading this, no biggie if we need to scrap that and reboot now (or did I fuck that up by playing?)...

    Sorry gents, I was all excited for a snow day and didnt pay attention to what the fuck was going on.

    I think you are fine. I believe Brave wants to do this immediately after the next advance (tomorrow night).

    Yes that is the plan. Do not recruit or play your games after advance to week 6.

    Is anyone going to be completely unavailable all night Friday and during day Saturday? I'd like to keep this from pushing past 24 hours. Wazzu do you want to temporarily host the file or should I see if Dru can do it once we are ready to reboot?
