    I just finished my first practice and completed the challenge (it was an easy one). That got me thinking about people starting a practice and if things werent going well quiting before the end of the practice so they could try again. I hope none of us here are that desperate to cheat but is there any way to guard against this or will we just have a gentlemens agreement?

    Not sure but I think I remember reading somewhere that if you quit a practice, you just get the minimum XP possible.

    I'm pretty sure if you lose the practice you can just give it another go, at leas that's what happened to me.

    When you start up a CCM you look at the screen for your options and this includes: Practice/Season Game/Scouting/

    Ok so where is that, went i go to CCM i go directly to the news center

    So there are four tabs, news center, my career, my actions and more. Which one of those tabs is practice is in?


    If i go to my careers tab i can go to view my goals, compare my legacy and purchase upgrades

    if i go to my actions, i go to the checlist which is play preaseason game and select ready to advance

    if i go to more i can go to personnel, my career, stats, strategy, history and my league.

    So which one of the tabs should i be going to to practice?

    Thanks for the help.

    Ok so here is the problem, i have two on my checklist under my actions.

    Pre season game
    ready to advance

    I've seen videos that shows cuts, practice etc etc....how do i get to that point? do you have to play your game, sim, click ready to advance or it was there from the start?

    It's possible you could just have a glitch for the first week because that should all be there

    Thanks man. I just picked the first goal which was easy and wasn't sure what happens if you fail. That pretty much answers my question. That's good to know that I can try other more difficult scenario's without worrying that I will fail the first few times.

    I only have Pre-Season/Advance as well. In fact, I didn't even have the option to cut anyone yet, but I think that's because Tampa's roster was already at 70, therefore already at/under the limit for the first week.

    I think we are all talking about this CCM, and you are correct I think everyone should just have play preseason/advance checklist at the moment. I'm not sure what's holding it up to do the other options....Maybe RynoAid can shed some light on this for us....

    But then again ..."we talkin 'bout practice man..not the game..not the game, talkin 'bout practice man......"

    if you joined AFTER i started the CCM, you will not see practice.. It's a bug i think. We could fix this, but it would require starting up a new CCM and have everyone join back in, then sign all their FA's, then move on.

    So..do we just miss out on the first practice opportunity for preseason week 1....Preseason week 2 it should be there correct? And are we waiting for the FA draft to be complete before we start playing pre-season games? Not sure if I saw an answer for that...

    Thing is though, for some reason there are players that are FAs that should be on teams. Even rookies that were drafted like Juron Criner (unless I saw something incorrectly).

    If we can restart it I don't think it would be a problem, since we were looking like the first CCM to start up anyway. But I don't wanna be at a disadvantage when it can be solved rather simply.

    we can't even get guys to login to this CCM efficiently, but you think it's simple to quit and get everyone to sign back in... it would take 3 days.

    I was gona mention that. Juron criner should be on raiders. I was looking for him. Not sure why he was listed as fa, could be because he was a holdout for awhile.

    i would be in favor of restart but i see barely half the league joined so far. So may be a headache to get people to get back on.

    Alas, I viewed it the other way around. I figured it would be easy since everyone didn't join.

    I'm in favor of doing what's best. But I have a question - Have our rosters already been expanded? Or can some of us not cut players because we're still sitting at 53?
