    There was a punting glitch that affected bother users in my game with MoonBBad last night in TMFL. Both punters were healthy, but my 3 punts went (literally) 2 yards. Even worse than the kickers punting in the preseason. Both punters were punting as well, it was not kickers. The only thing I can think of was that they were both on cold streaks. It was also raining fwiw.

    Like I said, it happened to me on all three punts, and it happened to Moon on his last punt (but not his others).

    Has anyone else seen this? Emmdotfrisk

    Nothing on my end, never encountered this once.

    At least in NCAA I think the rain effects the accuracy, and I've always assumed that those shanks were caused by the accuracy being below a certain point. If we have our punt accuracy set low enough, the rain "multiplier" for lack of a better term may put it below the cut off point.

    Easy. Played using 'Real Time Weather' while Hurricane Sandy was making landfall.

    It had nothing to do with accuracy. Possibly Sandy.

    I know you kicked the ball all of 2 yards. But my thought is that if the accuracy is low enough, it effects the power as well. I haven't really tested it, but that's my theory at least.

    Back in the early stages of NCAA 13, it happened to a few of us in the Deuce.

    We had tested the FG sliders in 12th Man. When we tweaked the accuracy slider, it affected the players' kick power.

    2 guys in my league have this going on right now. Any clue on how to fix?

    Timpegoose seemed to think it was linked to the kick accuracy slider. Have you touched this at all?

    Are they having it in multiple games? Or just one? I've only had it in this one game.

    Since it only happened to you in one game I'm not so sure. Unless Shaun bumped up the accuracy slider the next week. The only thing that made me think that was that in the Deuce it stopped happening after Drifter bumped the punt accuracy slider up. My kicker was missing extra points for the same reason too until he bumped accuracy up.
