    1) We will hold a draft for members using existing FBS teams. These teams will not be replaced.
    2) We will then hold a draft for members using teambuilder teams. You will use this team's roster and join a tier five conference within your geographic region as broken down in the conference ladder.

    Draftable Teams (one star, tier five conference, 75 and below):
    Akron
    Army
    Buffalo
    Florida Atlantic
    Idaho
    Kent State
    Middle Tennessee State
    New Mexico State
    North Texas
    San Jose State
    Texas State
    Louisiana Monroe
    Massachusetts
    Texas San Antonio
    Utah State
    Western Kentucky

    One thing I would add is that only the Tier 5 conference schools(as seen in the conference ladder) can be replaced. So that would mean that someone can takeover Memphis, New Mexico, Tulane, and UAB, but we can't replace them with a teambuilder school.

    Or should we simply eliminate them from the available teams?

    I would say that makes sense.

    Seems like a little bit of an unfair advantage. That's what you're here for!

    Yeah, lol. I knew it was the exact same criteria as we're using in Z2H but it's a criteria that makes sense if you want everyone to start from the bottom.

    Well, we still need to pick up 2 more people to fill out the league and we had been restricted from going after new people. I don't know if that's still the case though now that we have forum space. However, we can probably get a head start by declaring if you're going with option 1(picking a real FBS team) or option 2(using a Teambuilder team).

    If we're restricted to making legit teams with team builder, I'm going to go with option 1.

    Let me test import one tonight and then decide from there. I'm starting to lean to option 1 but I want to see how my team-builder teams look.

    I was really waiting until I had the game in my hands to make any calls on it. I think we can have team decisions by the end of the week.

    My opinion probably means nothing to y'all, but the less room you create for bugs the better IMO. I have not heard that EA tested and fixed the team builder bug so that would be scary to me. Would suck to get a tear or two in and POOF, you're done. Might not happen but why take the chance I say. ;)

    There were many a dynasty lost to the team builder bug. Not sure of all of the specifics, but had something to do with the import. May have been with a certain amount of teams imported, not sure, but many dynasties were lost to freezing issues.

    I actually made a TB team tonight and would love to be able to use it.

    Here is a post from the EA forums last year. Granted, it was early after release but there were a lot of cases like this...

    We are absolutely going to be careful with it and are currently testing it. Hopefully, it will work out because it definitely is an idea with some pretty neat upside.

    If you dont mind, I can make another TB team and use it in the test dynasty.

    I've used custom conferences and, for the most part, didn't noticed anything significant. Although, we did have several people get commissioner access after an advance (meaning the game allowed them access even though I still had mine) and one guy thought it would be smart to click "advance to next week" and it simmed two weeks and basically folded the league.

    If there are dynasties running and having success multiple years in with TB teams then maybe it is ok. But without that verification I would be hesitant. Like I mentioned in the other post, the less "buggy" things you use, the better.

    Unfortunately, I think I have to import them before the dynasty is hosted... which I already did, and I'm too lazy to set it up again just for a test

    What did y'all decide as far as rosters for TB teams if you find it is working properly?

    What is the plan for rosters in general? I am making an updated set and will have 1-star teams updated at some point. I could speed up the process on 1-stars if needed. One stars can usually go either way though since most people don't know any of the players...
