    The Tradition

    Well it's the eve of release day and I'm sure we're all itching to get this thing going. We have a few guys going on vacation and won't be back until the 20th. Because of that we will be starting Saturday July 20th, assuming there isn't any issues with the game that would require us to wait for a patch or something. In the meantime I'll be hosting a test dynasty so we can have a chance to test out sliders.

    I'll be out of town the weekend of the 20th (actually coming back the afternoon of the 21st). If we're waiting until the 20th, any chance we can wait one more day?

    If OK with you, I would be interested in joining the the test dynasty to help you fill the 12 slots and provide feedback. I will be picking up the retail copy this afternoon, just let me know which team to join in as and any particulars (created coach, trees, etc...).

    Being the newbie to the T1, I see the main league outline is outdated, with roster, rules etc... My only question is are we allowing custom PBs? If I missed this already, my bad!

    We havent in the past because of people's tendencies to load up PBs with unrealistic formation combos and money plays. Also, I think the argument was that.. one can find whatever type of PB they want to run from the available PBs, and that not having a certain formation here and there was a good challenge and a way to keep things more competitive. Also, it was thought that custom playbooks have caused problems with the dynasty file.

    As far as this year, I dont really mind if we allow custom PBs but it has to be realistic IMO. If there isnt any precedent in real life for an offense, I dont want to face it in-game.

    Yeah it has always been a sensitive topic, in one way I wish we could because a lot of these playbooks leave much to be desired but it's something that is tough to police.

    We could put it to a vote. I dont mind one way or the other and I doubt there would have to be much policing with this group anyway.

    Yea I fully understand. Just didn't see anything in concrete so I had to ask. I'm a singleback kinda guy, and the PBs running SB are loaded with extra Shot Gun stuff I do not use. Would rather have more I, Weak, Strong formations. Guess I'll keep looking.

    I will be putting the dynasty up on the 19th and we will probably advance to week 1 on the night of the 20th.
