    Difficulty:Heisman(created a offline dynasty with Kentucky. My first game against Western Kentucky was great. Came down to the wire. Sacked them when they were on my 20 down by 8). I love close games and hated in NCAA13 when cpu sucked. Might I say, their QB was tearing my ass up throwing the ball. He went 17/21 for 222 yards. He shouldve threw a TD but their WR dropped a wide open pass so they settled for a FG.

    Coach Skills: Haven't really looked at that yet, but from what I heard. It would be best to go on Normal or Slow with some restrictions.

    Sliders:Not my area, I'll leave that to someone else on the site. I would say though, running is a little too easy.

    Recruiting Limits: Idk if we will be using them. it's up to Parrot.

    Ive been reading the skills talk on the ncaa football thread and it seems slow is the best way to go. I havent got the game yet, but we dont want to be maxed out to soon.

    I saw the same thing in the demo. Maybe my pass defense just sucks but Manziel and Mariota in two games only had like 5 incompletions.

    WR Catching needs to be bumped down. My WR's with 79 catching or 76 are catching everything. I can't imagine what WR's in the 90's will be doing lol

    I've heard a lot of good feedback about these sliders so I'm trying them out right now. I'll post my game stats after the game is over

    That's still kinda high, considering how long these dynasties usually go. Maxed out in 5 or 6 seasons would be too quick IMO.

    Yea that's why I think the best route would be to take slow. I rather it take a long time to get maxed out than be maxed out in 6 seasons.

    that was undefeated and a bcs win, with 6 award finalist 500 pts per coach of the year ect.
    I think normal speed is fine, 6-8 coaching levels per year will be average. Plus if you notice in the tree it takes 10+ for 3rd tier and 20+ for 4th and that is for each side of tree.
    Coordinators level a lot slower. think mine were level 4 at the end.

    I will tell you one thing, rebuilding (with this years recruiting) will be a major challenge. I find the new recruiting extremely simplified but it seems recruiting is much hard to get the prospect your after.

    Put it on slow. Rather it take 10 seasons to max out than 5 or 6 or even 7.

    I don't care either way tbh, was just saying since I doubt many have been through a full online dynasty season yet.

    What do you think about the sliders ghost? I played two offline dynasty games with them and was really impressed.

    I'm loving them so far. WR's are actually dropping passes and not catching every damn pass. QB accuracy is good too, before I changed it, my 80 overall QB was making every pass. On these sliders, sometimes he is not too accurate. I still can run the ball very well so I guess it's just me though. Overall I like them, I'm sure there's stil a few tweaks needed to be made though.

    In my opinion it actually helped running between the tackles and made the read options manageable. Defense is actually playable now with throwing the controller lol. I played with my sooners and handled Monroe and had a close one with nd, which I didn't get to finish but it seems pretty on point to me

    What teams are you using when you play? Just wondering as I was trying some average schools and couldn't play defense at all and running the ball was average at best.

    • I won 21-16. All my points were scored in the 1st half.
    • Maybe turn up WR catching for CPU. They dropped a wide open TD against me.
    • Idk what it was, but Miss St 4 man rush was getting to me all the team. When I played bama on IBO's sliders, they were too, but they were blitzing me a lot.
    • Love that the game was real competitive
    That's it really, I don't have any complaints.
