    Hey guys,

    We just wanted to check in with everyone and see how things are going. We wanted to give everyone a forum to express any concerns or post any suggestions they have.

    If you have a concern, please be respectful and do not call anyone out specifically. This is just to talk about the league as a whole.

    A couple of things we wanted to cover ourselves:
    • Content - Outside of the some Team Management and the Power Rankings and League Leaders, we are not seeing a lot of content generated. We're also still seeing a few Game Summaries missing. What can we do to help? What do you guys think is holding some of you back from posting more?
    • User vs CPU - For the most part everyone is doing very well with these. I think those that were having issues are getting better. As we all know, sim stats are as much a part of TSO's brand of sim gaming as sim gameplay is. This applies to CPU games too. For those that are having an easier time with the CPU, what do you guys find to be the least difficult? Meaning what aspects should we make more difficult through sliders to present more of a challenge and make it harder to post gaudy stats?
    What do you guys think about these? What else do you think we can do to improve/better the league?

    BTW, I just ran across this in an NCAA league. They record and broadcast their league games. Very cool. I know we can't all get $300 recording devises but cool nonetheless.

    I dont think a user has lost a game to the cpu yet and that seems to be where the gaudy stats are coming from ... maybe tweak the cpu sliders to give users more of a challenge

    I think a lot of the problem in user vs cpu games in their playcalling. But obviously we can't change that. I've also noticed that they struggle running the ball so maybe you could give them some help in that area.

    Ya I've noticed their playcalling is atrocious, lol. I think if they could run the ball better that may help.

    In regards to lack of content, I've found my content production drop to near 0 a few weeks (game weeks) back. I forgot to do my usual in the Bills Team Management after one game, and then ended up playing the next weeks game and not posting any content afterwards because I wanted to post something late from the previous week first.

    I ended up 3 games behind in posting team content, so I kind of just dropped it altogether. Which was a shame, because somewhere in there I got my first win and didn't get around to making a post about it.

    The easiest thing to do for me to fix that, would be to stop being lazy. I'll try posting something after my game this week - and might go back and post some late stuff for the previous weeks if I can remember what happened back then. I've enjoyed reading other people's content though

    I don't like playing the CPU games because of the lopsided competition. I think all CPU vs Human games should be simmed unless they have playoff implications.

    I've been considering this. There are other leagues on here that utilize that strategy...

    It also helps eliminate if a owners is trying to pad his stats.

    I don't value the Cpu games being simulated, that is unfair to owners who have way more cpu games than others. I think the difficulty versus CPU is way too easy, I'm just trying to do an out route for a 5 yard catch for a first down and it turns into a 70 yard td half of the time. Increase CPU's ability. Simming is just unfair.

    Well, keep in mind that goes both ways. Is it fair to the guy who has 14 user vs user games that another teams has five CPU games? Neither scenario is perfect. We could go to All-Madden and have the CPU cheat at the end of games and cost guys wins but is that any better? Ideally, I'd like to be able to play CPU games and we can keep doing so if we can find a way to make the CPU more competitive and have everyone buy into managing their stats a little better even when the CPU is not as competitive.

    I'm in favor of All-Madden, except we need to be weary of the sliders than, because with All-Madden there is way more dropped passes.

    That was supposedly fixed with the latest update.

    We will tinker with the CPU sliders for the rest of the season and see what happens. We can look at some of those changes once this season concludes.

    There are still bugs though, If you go to the stats page, look up the leaders in fumble return yards its got 5 guys with like 56,000+ return yards

    I am in favor of simming every USER vs. CPU game.

    I don't have Brees :D but still.. playing the CPU is going to be an easy win 97.2 percent of the time.

    You know what I mean...I understand your stance. Just wondered if your stance would be the same if you lost your best player

    The fumble slider was adjusted several weeks ago. Honestly, I rarely fumble now. Some of it is using the cover ball feature and some of it may be ratings.

    Well, six of your fumbles are from your QB, not your HB. The 49ers, Browns and Vikings (three of the top 3 rushing teams in the league) have 4-5 fumbles total for their team and none of their HBs have more than 3. I think covering the ball would probably help and Flacco's ratings are probably causing him some issues. It's not a league wide issue so I can't justify changing the sliders.
