    Start Date?

    Do we have a start date? Someone over on TF3 proposed a 2 week wait to play the game a little look at sliders get used to our teams kind of like a training camp. We can sim a few years and see how recruiting works and how speed affects the game. We could have a tournament or two while we wait for rosters. That kind of thing. Any suggestions?

    The problem with the "sliders" is that nobody knows for sure if they even work at this point. Hopefully they do, but who knows for sure? I do think we should wait until at least the roster patch is up, as there are going to be more than a few of us without freshmen on our teams.

    I'd love to play with named rosters, but using the teams we've got, I can live without it if need be (could auto-name the guys). Anyway, I'd say to give it about a week to check some things out and get used to our teams, then put this baby on the road. Just my opinion.

    Is it greedy to hope that the rosters are right and correct on the release date and pastapadre has a roster out a few days later? Call me crazy. Maybe we could do a little TF4 tournament real quick waiting for the rosters to come out...kind of compare notes on the stick skillz?

    I'd be fine with that. As it is, with the repairs on my 360 taking anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks to be done and me to get my 360 back, I'll be out until probably at the latest a week after the game comes out.

    Personally, I'd like to have accurate and named rosters.

    You guys want to set up a tournament? Set up brackets and such go default sliders and see who has the best skills out of the gate.

    I thought it would be kinda cool. Maybe take our favorite teams instead of our cusa/mac teams just for fun..I too would much rather wait for accurate rosters and real names, unless it's going to take forever. Maybe I'm naive, but I can't believe EA would release that game with jacked up rosters.

    edit: would rather wait for accurate rosters and real names to start the season. For a tournament I could care less.

    Yeah, we could do an inner league tourney, no problem.


    I'm not exactly sure what all the other leagues start times are. I know for a fact that I will wait until I have accurate/named rosters. As far as waiting for someone to come up with good sliders....I will probably not worry about that. You can change the sliders at any point during the season, unlike the rosters.

    I would say, we will start the season in between a week and two weeks after the release date.

    So I am up for the idea of a league tourney. That would be cool. It would give us a way to get used to online play and the feel of the game. And besides we would get possible sneak peaks at our dynasty opponents.

    MY VOTE IS FOR THE TOURNEY!!! :D

    I say no. I dont like ruining the surprise of new opponents. Post season tourney? Sure. I'll do whatever, just my 0.02 cents.

    I guess the rosters are due out this weekend. Are we starting this weekend or next week or what? Lanteri is like 77 teams done and posted that he should be done tomorrow morning.

    I'm assuming we'll be playing with adjusted sliders. If so, we'll need to see what's best for us. Does anyone know if the sliders in the PS3 version will be exactly the same as the 360? In other words, will we see similar results? If so, it looks like some posts over at OS have some solid sliders going at this point...

    Yeah, everything is to come..

    We don't have to have perfect sliders when we start as well...we can adjust them as we go if need be
