Rekkapryde LTL7360 KNICKSFAN_84 MrWitness36 ssuwr86 With this being the last NCAA for at least some time, and possibly ever, I have no doubts that most if not all of us will be playing NCAA 14 for a few more years. And that, of course, means that we will continue to play an online dynasty together. I see no reason that we won't be playing together through 2014 and well into 2015 but the question is, what file will we be playing? It's personally my opinion and preference that the file we're all playing next summer/fall will be the last one we play together. From there, I hope we play into the 2030's, and dare I say 2040's of the dynasty. But with national signing day coming up in real life in a few weeks, and roster makers creating the 2014 seasons up to date rosters likely shortly after, I think we as a league need to make a decision on how we wish to proceed. I've listed what I think are the three best options below, including what I perceive to be the pros and cons for each choice. Please don't come in here and post "I'm good with whatever." I really have enjoyed playing with all of you the last few years, and would appreciate if this became an interactive discussion, because I hope to keep this core together for as long as possible and don't want to strong arm for my personal preference. I. Keep Playing This File Pros: Keep the positive momentum going, we've got a great file and there really isn't a great reason to stop Everyone pretty much identifies with their program The six users per conference seems to really up the competition with our quality of programs Cons: It's really hard to recruit new users when we inevitably lose people due to the lack of talent for CPU teams Keep in mind there will be more people vying to play NCAA next fall, so this is important Because we started at these programs, and because we've put most good programs into two conferences, the college football landscape is pretty devoid of quality CPU teams Could get stale because of the fact above, and just a lot of years at one program Cy might win every title for the rest of time II. Start New File with Updated Rosters at Same Caliber Programs Pros: Users who affiliate with current teams (Myself, Jbek, Glen, Cmassey) can play with this year's real life recruits, while those who don't (Jandy, Cy) can start fresh at a new program if they wish Start the dynasty with 6 in each conference and hopefully avoid plucking all talent away from other conferences Easier to recruit new users if need be Gives guys like LTL and Rekka an equal opportunity Cons: Going to run into the same problems with CPU rosters when we come to the season 6-8 range Could get stale experience much of what we already did on this file Weird playing 2014 season while it's 2013 in game? III. Start New File and do a Coaching Carousel Dynasty Pros: With the great core we have, potential to go 15+ seasons and truly build a coaching legacy Starting a around 3-star caliber schools, it will take time to build a great team, or move to great program Interesting decisions every offseason as users wrestle between playing with guys you recruited the season before, or moving to a more attractive program Potential for some really interesting user rivalries to form, and the ones we have now move to new pastures Will take a very long time to outpace CPU talent, if it ever completely happens Potential to play with schools you've never thought about trying Greater impact to recruiting Cons: Could be frustrating if you're one of the users who doesn't make it to bigger programs in first few years Users could get dispersed among multiple conferences and have less of an online dynasty feel Some of us really like playing with our favorite schools, and get most immersed playing with them Not competing for national titles from the start might not appeal to everyone Similarly, not recruiting top talent immediately might not appeal to everyone If someone makes it to Ohio State I'd be pretty salty!
