    These were taken from description thread:
    Are these the right sliders? If yes for next season can we tweak them?

    This is what I see:
    Human QB acc is too high:should either be 5 or 10
    WR catch for both is too high:should be 35 or 40

    If they are the same as Saturday Heroes the description thread needs to be updated,

    I wasn't asking for a midseason change, I am pointing out what I see as flaws in sliders.

    The one on left is Saturday Heroes The one on the right is league description. I am guessing we used the league description last season.

    Things I see right off the top are:
    QB acc has been raised same with FG power and FG acc
    most everything else has been lowered.

    Will add more thought later

    I haven't taken a close look to formulate an opinion about what could/should/shouldn't be changed... but I am always willing to increase difficulty if all users are dominant. This is my own personal opinion and isn't meant to be a vote for anything in particular... yet

    I will express my concerns with statistical analysis later but from my own gameplay experience this season QB acc and WR catching for user should be lowered, just from what I remember.

    Frisk> I don't run this dynasty. I need to analyze the stats I am seeing though.

    Only one vote, but my WR's drop ALOT of passes already. Wide open passes, it is very frustrating. A realistic estimate is about four or five every game, sometimes more, but rarely less.

    do you adjust your offense game plan for catching? If you put that on conservative your receivers will drop no more than 2 passes a game.

    that is definitely what I have found. GP on conservative makes a lot of routine catches, but does not always make the spectacular play.

    I appreciate the tip, the only GP I change consistently is safe tackle. My guys dropped a few more wide open passes this game, including a crucial 3rd down attempt. I dont usually get upset but I beat the sh*t out of my couch.

    In the end that catch did not prevent SDSU from catching the #20 ranked Mountaineers in a trap game. Summary to be posted.

    My slider concern is less of a concern and more of an observation. I notice that most users, including myself, have inflated user rushing stats. If I am playing a CPU team that isn't dominant... I, along with many others in this league, are able to rush at will. 250 yds rushing is possible more often than I feel comfortable with. I understand that there are numerous factors that go into these type stats : my play calling, CPU AI (non slider related), and CPU AI (slider related) are the top three.

    I love to have to scratch and claw for a 100 yd day. Not sure if sliders will fix this or if EA just needs to tweak the AI themselves for a closer SIM experience... but I figured I'd throw it out there. My RB's are good... but they shouldn't be breaking records every year. Anyone else feel this way?

    I do try to mix up play calling more and more with every game I play btw. I will continue to work on that as well.

    I agree Milmont. We may need to bump up CPU defense significantly and possibly bump User and CPU Tackling.

    That sounds like an interesting remedy worth considering IMO.
