    After Midnight

    I hate this. With Neal's coach XP not working correctly its time to decide if we restart or just plug along and let Neal deal with less points than everyone else. As much fun as that would be its not really fair to him. But restarts suck so lets hear what you guys think.

    Ultimately it's Wyrmreaver's call IMO, but if he wants a chance at a level playing field I'm fine with it.

    Based on Neal's post in the other thread the fact that Ryan voted no means he won't want to restart.

    Entertainment over.....:(

    seems like there would be a few things to try before abandoning the entire dynasty.

    Is it that the WVU job will always give less XP?

    The Redshirts OD has the same issue with a couple of guys and has tried a slew of things to fix it with no success. Based on what I've read the EA guy posting in the bug/glitch thread thinks it is an issue caused when the file is created, which would mean it's probably FUBAR as it relates to the person having the problem. At least Wyrmreaver gets some xp, some of the Redshirts guys aren't getting any.

    Weird bug. You would think making a new coach or even a new coach on a new team (then moving to the desired school) would fix it.

    If we get it fixed I would think wymreaver could catch up in levels pretty quickly. Otherwise with how crazy powerful the recruiting tree is, we might as well restart.

    Do we even know the root cause of why this happens? We should see what causes this glitch. Because what if we restart, and it happens to someone else also?

    If this impossible to fix, we can limit what we do in the coaching tree. Say Wyrn is a level 14 coach down the road, and WVU has been the most winning team after a few years. We could make it so that we can only add 10,11,12,13 parts of the scouting tree. But I've got to think there's a way around this to fix WVU's XP levels.

    if its just he has less goals then everyone else it would be easy to figure out if we restart. we just have check the number of goals ppl have before officially starting again.

    From what I've read, bbj has it correct. You basically have to confirm that all coaches have full xp goals when you start. It seems to be an issue that happens when the file is initially launched on the server.

    Here's my reason for not restarting:

    1. There is no guarantee that this will not happen to someone else.

    Edit: I see this is addressed above.

    I dont think anyone wants a restart. But its not fair to Wyrmreaver either to not collect XP.

    We've had several no's so does that mean your OK with the way things are Neal? I dont see this being fixed by EA anytime soon.

    like i texted earlier i think a restart is only fair. not even neal should be playing with a disadvantage. It will also allow people who are not happy with their teams to make the switch they would be happy with. We could also make slight slider adjustments that we as a group think need to be made. If there is a way to turn no huddle off i would say do that too. I would even personally change every coach to conservative myself if thats a option..

    Pretty sure there is no slider - you would have to go change all the CPU coaches.....who knows how many problems that could cause though.

    see if you can change the "starting coach level" to 5. If so, delete any saved files of the OD you have, give me the boot and reinvite me. I'll rejoin when I get home tonight and create a new coach at level 5. If that works we'll be in business, if it doesn't or it makes it worse..... Maybe we try to rehost the file after the week 11 advance? Rehosting would keep current week and results but would be a new file with all new coaches. If that doesn't work we can take a long look at restarting.

    thought?
