    I don't understand the logic behind this rule. Niners have 3 TE formations in their playbook and they are a power running team. They should be able to come out in big formations no matter where they are located.

    Using three TE sets on first down at the 40-yard-line.

    I did practice it for three hours. Nothing is indefensible, but not everyone has every defensive formation and the game does not align properly in most cases. Its the same as not allowing ho huddle all game even though you can in real life. Flaws in the programming put the defense at a disadvantage that they cannot account for, so the rules are there to limit these. Everyone should be able to win their games by outplaying and outexecuting their opponent, not because they are taking advantage of flaws in the defensive AI.

    After further testing, I have found that base defense (both within the 3-4 and 4-3 playbooks) are able to contain these sets with some adjustments. As such, these formations will now be allowed as change of pace sets. Please see the Cigar Room and/or the Rules/Guidelines thread for clarification.

    Thank you for looking at it some more. So I can now run it but not overuse it?

    Correct. Had this rule been in effect you would have been fine. You certainly weren't abusing it. It just appears to be one of those outdated rules that carried over. Glad we figured it out. ;)

    Pretty sure it counted it since the score was 26-0. Lol
