    Stay with Heisman

    I dont know enough about game speed and how it will affect gameplay, so I'll just abstain from that question for the time being.

    CPU QBs are way too good on Heisman. I like the way user games are playing. So I would like to Nerf the Heisman AI or switch to AA for a year. I just don't know if AA is going to be easy mode.

    Stick with Heisman and current game speed.

    I hear there's a bug with slow game speed were HBs that are shorter than 5'8" or 5'9" are down on contact on counter plays from the Shotgun formation.

    I'd like to try AA to see how it changes the user games, specifically whether it maybe makes man coverage a little more realistic. I also don't like how the non-user controlled players all play WAY above their ratings on Heisman, whether in CPU or user games.

    If we stay on Heisman we will do some slider changes (ughhh), I'm thinking to CPU QB accuracy, CPU RB ability (to calm down the hyper breaking tackles) and user pass rush/pass blocking (to try and improve the ability to rush the passer without the blitz).

    Try AA for a season a go from there. F*ck sliders!!!

    Don't know enough about the speed thing to really comment on it. I say leave it alone.

    I say we try a season on AA. By and large, people are playing teams they should beat and then 6 or 7 user games. 5 games on AA seems fine to me as a test run

    I say we leave game speed as is, it makes the game feel a lot different when you change it

    I like it the way it is but I won't complain if we switch, I'll just go with the flow

    I'd be for heisman with the above mentioned slider changes.

    I wouldn't change speed

    Slightly off topic, but a season 3 question....

    Can we turn off protected rivalries? I am playing Kentucky and FSU every season. While that is fine, I would prefer to rotate through playing different teams in the East each season..... Some people may be opposed, but I would prefer to play different guys each season.

    I think the protected rivals are already off.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be playing Missouri every season, might as well check in the offseason though to make sure.

    I'll check this offseason, but I'm fairly certain I turned them off, since if they were I was told we'd have only 8 conference games instead of 9. I think what is happening with the schedule is that everyone is playing their season 1 cross division opponents home-and-home this year. I would expect that the opponents would change in season 3, but obviously I could be mistaken.

    As I said before I think it's doing home-and-home. I played Arkansas and Auburn both years, but the venues switched this year.

    I'm just glad my user games are done so I get to test out the patch vs the CPU.

    I only really know how the ACC works, they usually play cross-division teams 1 and 2 year 1, teams 2 and 3 in year 2, teams 3 and 4 in year 3 and just go up by 1 each year meaning they play a home and home with each team every 5 or 6 years. And they play their cross-divisional rival each year.

    So by the sounds of it, if we played 2 cross-divisional teams back to back, protected rivalries is on but I'm not positive.

    Remember we fucked around with all of the conferences. I know that screwed with scheduling logic in '12, and i wouldnt be shocked if it did again this year.

    My guess is that we are going to be stuck playing the same 9 teams over and over and over again

    I want to stay on Heisman, I have had great games on this level and outside of the SMU game from last season have never really felt too much Heisman BS. But I also want us to be a happy group. I feel some blowouts coming up, but I guess less move to AA for next season and see what happens?

    We are going to try a season on default AA. We know what Heisman default is like now, and after a season on AA we can make an informed decision about which one we use as the baseline moving forward.

    Based on everyone's responses we will leave the game speed alone.

    I'm really for either Heisman or AA. In reality, you cont blow out every chump team on your schedule. Every undefeated team has had some battles against such teams in real life. I'm more for playing on Heisman, even if I did start the Heisman shenanigans talk :rolleyes:. If we go with AA, we can ask around to other leagues that have been playing on AA and see what sliders they are using and if they like them.
