    Great video. That recruiting screen just looks deeper, but doesn't seem like it'll really be that big of an adjustment.

    Now I feel like an idiot asking, but the Overall is the rating they're going to come out with as a Freshman right? Obviously the more scouting will get you closer to their actual rating.

    I would pass on that #1 CB because of his name.

    Thanks for the video! I feel this alone will make Dynasty mode that much more fun. It's always a great feeling to land a commit from a stud that you have been working towards.

    I thought for sure his name was going to be David Harris.

    Haha, hell no man I would go after him in a hearbeat. Of course JrRawlins would swoop in and steal him at the last minute.

    For you game changers that have seen the game ( Shaun Mason, Drifterbub, Emmdotfrisk, etc) I have a question about recruits. Is there more variety (more templates) than in '12? In '12 there weren't very many and in my 12 year OD I signed the same exact guy several times. This was especially true @ HB and WR as I signed the same exact speed back 3 times and the same speed receiver probably 5 times as well as the same possession receiver at least 3 times.

    Just in case you don't know what I'm talking about I mean that if you look at the ratings that show up on the info screen when you push "Y" (which are the most important ones for that position) when they're true FR for HB#1 that I signed in 2015 and HB#2 that I signed in 2017 every single rating is exactly the same except for 1 or possibly 2 which are different by only 1 point. I'm REALLY hoping that they have many more templates in '13 so that we don't keep signing the same recruit over and over and over again.

    Have you guys noticed if this has changed in '13?

    Thanx!

    Haha, I'm being a smart ass because I know exactly how many templates there are though I'm not sharing that much data.

    jello1717 I can't really give you a change percentage because I wasn't involved last year, observation isn't that useful.

    And why not? I'd love to know how many templates they have.

    I talked to Jordan Peterson a bit about variance between templates. They didn't confirm if they were going to mess with the variance this year. Although, I can say there is some differences now that the new athlete system is in place.

    I'm not sure if you read the article we did where I developed new weight ranges for the positions. At least that is fixed.

    Am I the only one that's a bit disappointed in how the scouting turned out? I just watch it and go "oh."

    Now, obviously they had to keep it easy to do, quick to do, etc. because recruiting is obviously a time sink. I don't really have any suggestions on how it could have been done better off the top of my head, so I should probably just shut up.

    There is definitely no wow factor. I think it just adds more depth to dynasty. It really is the only way to integrate a true 'bust and gem' system, though. You have to hide the ratings.

    Nice video

    Real quick questions

    1>Is it 10 hours recruiting and 3 hours scouting? or 10 hours total, 3 hours max scouting?

    2>In past years I never tried to find out what the recruit liked because it really wasn't significant in the long run. Is it more significant to find out this year?

    In our league we call these 'clones' and I think they are a big part of the reason we played one less season than we normally would have. After awhile, you're just seeing the same guys. I started recruiting player types I never had before.

    I personally hope there are no templates, guess that's a bit ambitious.

    Shaun Mason has already said in this thread that there are templates and that he knows how many templates there are, but he can't say how many.

    I noticed that gem WR Josh Washington was a 3* and had Texas first on his schools list. It looked like Frisk was on in week 2 or 3, so maybe it was that Texas hadn't recruited him and he still had them first on his board. If they were actually recruiting him hard, then that would be unrealistic. Texas only recruits 4* and 5* players (minus K/P/FB). Gems are really 3* and below players who slip past the big schools and become stars on worse teams. Can someone tell me if big schools go after gems? It's would be unrealistic for Bama to recruit a 2* center who comes in at 75 ovr.
