    If you wanted to know what I will do after I've come home and popped the game into the XBOX...

    I'll probably play some online games with friends who get it at midnight, followed by the beginning of an offline dynasty where I will choose a power team without CC to test out recruiting this year a bit. After that I'll probably go to sleep.

    In the morning, I may continue the dynasty and try to develop a set of sliders, or I will play some online matches.

    My first thing I do is to go to the rosters and sort though to find who's the best in the nation at all the attributes. Then I'd play some online games, either ranked or against some TSOers. Then begin a Road to Glory. And in the middle of all that I'll edit FSU's roster as well as my dynasty team's rosters (Utah and UCF) so I can get used to them.

    First thing I do is start a dynasty, then hit the practice field. Maybe some unranked games thrown in, especially if I can set some up with sim TSOers.

    Set up a dynasty, sign up for the service that lets me advance online, and do nothing but NCAA while I'm at work on Tuesday. Just recruit, sim, and advance, so I can test out recruiting.

    Custom playbooks + practice field to test it out. Prune the bad plays, remember the good ones, and make it perfect. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Then wait eagerly for my first ever OD.

    This. I will found out what works to fit what I like to do and then fashion a playbook around it. After that I will find what non custom playbook I like the best for league play.

    For league play, the league I'm in right now is allowing custom playbooks, once they're checked over. So maybe you'll be able to do the same. Be a shame to have this great new feature and not be able to use it online.

    As someone who plays a good bit online I'm not too excited about it to be honest. It's going to be a major defensive headache.

    practice with South Carolina, the team I use in the NDL. Basically tell Stephen Garcia "get the ball, turn around and hand it to Marcus!"

    Why do you say that?

    The formations would be in the game anyway. For the most part, anyone can get a book very close to their ideal book.

    How so? Sim player will run a scheme, so you will have the same defensive issues as any other year trying to play a good chess match, and the cheesers are going to cheese with or without them, most cheesers will probably have unbelievably predictable playbooks as well.

    I agree with setting up a playbook, I will make about 3 playbooks(my pistol/shotgun wing spread book, then a west coast book, and then option run book) and tinker with the plays to get a set up that I can use to create deception with motion/pre snap looks.

    I disagree. An Air Raid Playbook won't have the same formations as a Options Playbook. The variety of plays that can be achieved with custom playbooks far outclasses even a multiple playbook.
    The large majority of players online aren't sim. Just because something may be predictable doesn't mean it's easy to stop. Stopping 8 plays out of five wide is a lot easier than trying to stop 30.

    I thought you were talking about online dynasty games here for whatever reason.

    Probably read the box for a second, then I'm most likely going to take off the plastic wrap and then maybe turn on my xbox and possibly put it in? can't wait to find out.

    I could have been more clear, I was speaking specifically about ranked games online. In any of the OD's here custom playbooks will be a great addition.
