Rules changes for Season 2 - EVERYONE READ AND ACKNOWLEDGE The following changes will be in place for season 2: Pass commit is banned, including use of 'key WR'. Any strategy points incurred for 'play the pass' will be an indication that a user is not complying with this rule. Use of 'aggressive' gameplan settings is banned, both on offense and defense. The offensive ones are nearly impossible to note, so everyone will have to be on the honor system there. Use of 'conservative' settings will still be allowed. For now, we will leave the sliders as is. Edit 3/8 - The following additional rules are going to be added to season 2 (based on conversation I've seen around the site and discussions I've had with other commissioners): 1. DL play - If a user controls any DL (DT or DE) they must engage an opposing OL on every play. 'Looping' or using turbo to run around blockers is not sim and will not be tolerated. Additionally, moving a DL off the line of scrimmage pre-snap or more than one 'step' outside the starting position is a blatant attempt to take advantage of poor OL AI and will not be tolerated. 2. Recruiting restrictions - Teams can recruit one 5 star recruit and two 4 star recruits for every star they have as a program that season (ie - a 5 star team may recruit five 5 star recruits and ten 4 star recruits in a season). 3. Use of Ace formation speed option - using this play more than occassionally will not be allowed. It is well known that running speed option from ace and keeping with the QB between center and guard is an automatic 3-4 yard gain due to poor defensive AI. It can be used occassionally, but should not be anyone's 'go to' play. Using the play as intended (stretching out the defense and looking to cut up outside the tackle or pitch to the HB) is fine, using it with the intent of cutting right inside the G for 3 yards is not.
