    I am 11-1, 8-1 in conference, #3 in BCS Standings.

    Wisconsin is 10-2, 8-1 in conference, #4 in BCS Standings.

    Wisconsin beat me during the regular season. The game, however, puts me in the Big 10 title game.

    Is there another team with only 1 loss? I know in past years, in the case of a 3 way tie, the game defaults to using the BCS ranking as the tie-breaker.

    In the league, yes. The other division has two one-loss teams. But in our division, no

    Chalk it up to another bug I guess.

    That's just so ridiculous tho. This game can be more trouble than it's worth. A bug like this is unfortunate, but having to try 5-6 times to get a user game in is ridiculous. The culmination of bugs, year in and year out, is unacceptable

    You could always just not buy the game.

    No it's not, it's head to head if two teams are tied.

    And as for not buying the game... It's not like the back of the box says "such and such won't work." I understand that games have bugs but it's still a little ridiculous

    This is no surprise to me, sorry that happened to your OD dude.

    Those type of things I have grown to accept for EA , other things not so much. Can't blame you for being irritated though.

    we had this exact thing happen in PFP PAC12 North with me and JFace , we had same record in conf & div , however I beat him head to head and he won the tie breaker. I may need to look at the thread to see who was higher in BCS as that was 3 seasons ago, but that is 100% not how the PAC 12 tie breakers work.


    I wonder if EA :

    a. knows this happens
    b. has some logical reason to program the tie breakers differently
    c. could change that in future


    I know jack about programming , but I would think that would be easy to alter. :confused:

    three way ties should be decided by BCS rank though, two-way by head-to-head

    Is this a custom conference?

    Notre Dame and FSU added to the big ten. Wisconsin and ND made protected rivals

    EA has said that the problem is likely caused by custom conference. They are tracking the issue and hope to get to it soon.

    At any rate the process the game uses is not at all the RL process is my point.

    Since it was a three way tie and saw beat you, head to head doesn't matter. It went to BCS ranking or overall record, I forget. I believe the game got it right

    If you are saying that is how the game is program and it exicuted the tie breaker as intended , then yes it is right. As far as In real life the PAC12 tie breakers do not break down that way , I actually researched that part. At least as far as prior season , if they have changed the tie breakers for this season I am not aware. I also only looked at PAC12 , I do no know if other conf have their own set of tie breaker rules.

    memory serves me corectly it was me , but again my point is if EA said " we are making the tie breakers however we want them to be " then it is not an issue.

    But, if EA wants them to mirror real life then they should correct that, as that is not how the PAC12 decided die breakers prior to 2011......

    Sorry for being a thread jacker BTW Spayer419 :(
