    We talked a few times about making rushing a little harder and BigKing recently brought it up in another thread. I agree the rushing sliders do need to be turned up a little, how do the rest if you guys feel?

    I agree - I'd like to see us forced to pass a little more if the running game fails to make an impact. seems like its a little too easy to run for 200 yds with the starter and the backup lol.

    Also, it would be cool to see someone other than a RB win the effing heisman

    What about adjusting the play-action pass setting and how they almost never work? I would think that should work more often than it does but every time I run it in short yardage siutations I get sacked. Is there a way we can adjust a slider for play action to work more often?

    I vote default Heisman level. Works very well in my offline dynasty, but I'm sure you Cheesers will still abuse the running game. :)

    I find it pretty easy to run on Heisman as well, it's just passing which is damn near impossible on Heisman lol

    I demand my team to get 10 yards per carry. Or they'll ride the bench.

    Well, just played a CPU using the new sliders and lost and the CPU went for over 200 yards in the game. I think that there were too many things changed at once, this game had some ridiculous CPU runs where is was robo cop and run you over and I going to the house. I think that the user rushing should have ben adjusted but now we have the CPU doing silly shit and running all over my team. Hell the CPU even ran up the middle for a touchdown when I pinched the line and pinched the linebackers and he still ran through about 5-6 guys tackling the CPU to run for a touchdown. My opinion is adjust slowly now change a bunch of stuff all at once. I dont mind losing to the CPU but this is ridiculous, I see that I was the only one that played a good CPU team this week so no one else can have an opinion at this point but I am saying we went to far. Need to back things up a little and make minor changes to one or two sliders not 4-5 changes all at once.

    That is my 2 cents...

    5 points is the smallest change you can make. Also, I only changed sliders that would effect how well users run against the cpu, not the cpu rushing against users. No changes were made there. I adjusted runshing ability and run blocking for users, and rush D for cpu.

    Yeah but Alabama sucks this year :p...

    I can't talk post changes, but before I gave up a few long runs on occasion, but for the most part nobody was going to run on me. If we keep these, I'll give you my thoughts after my first cpu game which is probably like week 8

    I played Penn State, it might be just that BK that Alabama is down this year but it sure felt that those changes made the CPU super rusher, the CPU defense maybe was a little high because there were times that I was passing on 1 st down or 2nd down not a passing situation and I could not get from under center and I was sacked before I could take a step. I would suggest that we adjust the human rushing only and leave the CPU stuff alone, maybe lower the user rushing ability and put the user blocking back and see where that get us. Go back to where we started and adjust the rushing ability down, because I feel messing with the CPU rush defense messes not only with rushing but passing as well. Let me know your thoughts. Who has a good CPU team in the next advance.
    Penn State had 230 yards rushing in basically one guy.
