    Wanted to throw this out to the group to see if anyone else is experiencing a high, and I mean ridiculously high, number of dropped passes against users compared to playing the CPU.

    I've had at least 3-4x the amount of drops in my USER games this season that against the CPU. This year I have decent WR finally so I'm certain that's it's not just my bonehead surfer f's running the flanks... Although my QB play this year been record setting... for the worse :confused: . And all these dropped passes against USERS surely hasn't help. I mean I completed more passes to the opposing team last night....

    5 completions
    9 drops
    6 interceptions

    With these stats, this isn't even fun anymore. Anyone else care to opine?

    I had zero drops in mine but only threw 8 passes. Did you try the conservative catch option?

    I think that adds up to 40 something drops in 8 games. Most frustrating season of my entire career in gaming. Not fun at all. That doesnt include interceptions. This is with conservative catch too.

    You've also simmed two user games too though Hova. It's the worse in the USER games. I don't have nearly the same issue playing the CPU. Without having access to my console currently, when I played ASU abolishthefed and CU uncleho I believe I had close to 20 drops in those two games.

    I think we need to address this in the off season. Because at the end of the day this is supposed to be fun and I agree with Gngsta4Lyphe, right now I dread user games. Which should be the opposite.

    I know against abolishthefed and GMONEY 15 the drops were pretty bad and was a major factor of them losing the game.

    How can there be a difference in user to CPU games? How would you address that? Last time I checked sliders had no effect on user games lol

    My drops consistently happen in every single game. Not just vs users.

    Please note that my HIGHEST RATED WR has 8 catches and 7 drops. I had to bench him because he was 0 catches 5 drops like 4 games in.

    This is what I wonder as well and why we haven't seen it until now. I feel like Gngsta4Lyphe is playing in some sort of Twilight Zone season with 19 actual drops from one guy this year, plus all the others for his players. No one else is even close to this.

    UvU games uses default rosters for whatever difficulty you are set at. If you play a few games on default sliders you will understand why drops happen so much. QB accuracy and catching are too low on default at higher difficulties.

    If you are talking about the difference in 'non-recognition' drops happen, it's because sliders have a slight effect on the catching system mechanics.

    Would playing at a slow game speed increase the catching system mechanics ? These drops are the most frustrating things in the world. I really dont even want to play anymore, because every pass is a drop even if they are wide open. Im not talking about catches in traffic, these are WIDE OPEN plays, maybe not all of them, but a good majority of them are. Im at 50 drops on the season now in 9 games. cant stand it.

    My best rated WR was benched because he had 5 drops and 0 receptions to begin the year. He is at 8 receptions with 7 drops now. Their catch ratings are all ~80 i dont see a reason for 19 drops or 50 drops as a team.

    I don't either, which is why I feel for you. It doesn't make sense.

    Check your sliders. QB Accuracy has a lot to do with it as well. So if you have a bozo QB, you will see drops.

    You also need to consider the reality. Sometimes WR drops are the only way for leagues to represent QB inaccuracy (let's face it, having every QB complete 70% of their passes isn't any fun). As frustrating as it might be, statistically it could be realistic.

    I would understand if that were the case, but i have the best rated team in the legacy. Michigan State is a 5 star school, and will probably be 4 star after this season, but the QBs are VERY accurate. Atleast 92+ accuracy for my top 2 QBs. And all my WRs float ~80 catch so it isnt great and i expect drops but not 50 drops in 9 games.

    Sounds like sliders then. What completion percentages are you at?

    This is why Cal has the advantage in our rivalry series.
