    Reminder - Gameplay Balance

    Just a reminder for everyone... We don't have hard/fast rules for types of plays called, RB rush attempts / catches, etc... but we do expect plays to be mixed up.

    There is no reason teams should have 40 passes and 8 rushes in a close game.

    Not every 3rd down should be a playaction. Or a bump-n-run... Just be aware of it during your games.


    We will advance tonight. Good luck everyone.

    Two other notes to that:

    1) Playaction on 3rd and anything more than 5 or 6 is unrealistic. Not in the NFL, yes you're right, they do it in the NFL on 3rd and Jersey City...but this is a Video Game, with an AI. So if you call PA on 3rd and 13 once, I'll consider you someone who can't get it whithout trying to "fool" the computer. Do it a 2nd time, and you're missing the point of "MEGA".

    2) NFL Teams Blitz on average 40% of the time. Not Every 3rd Down. Not Every 1st Down. Not Every Passing Situation. Make sure to mix it up on that side of the ball as well.
