    TGT PS3 OD - NCAA Football 14 Settings & Slider Discussion

    Hopefully we can start the OD next week (sometime between July 15-19) once rosters are finished. In the meantime, use this thread to discuss/recommend sliders & settings for the league. This also includes Coach XP Progression.

    I'll pretty much be ok with whatever. I've only been able to play 8 games so far and they've been all over the board. Won my first 4 games against comparable teams on AA. 3 were close and one was a blow out. The next 2 games were against far superior teams and got my ass handed to me. Playing 7 min qtrs I gave up 450 pass yards in one game and allowed an RB to gain 250 yards rushing in the next game. The one thing I feel needs to be adjusted is pass accuracy. Im completing way too many passes. Penalties are non existent so those will need to be tweaked but I haven't done any testing.
    As far as coach progression goes I vote for slow or slowest. I'm not a big fan of this feature so I want to dilute it as much as possible.

    Sliders - I agree with Deuce about the coaching progression. As far as everything else. I think the CPU field goal power should be turned down a little bit. Maybe penalties up a little more and the threshold should be lowered. No way a 95 speed guy should get caught from behind.

    Settings - Heisman difficulty, 6-7 min quarters. Start out with 2* teams or anyone under a 75.

    I think snoop (psusnoop) is working on some sliders. I used his for the demo and they were the best set that I played with. As for coach progression I was thinking about slow at first until someone here posted their chart from testing 6 years with 4 different teams. Nevermind, just went back and looked at his post again. Slow might be the way to go.

    So far I have been getting really good games with Heisman difficulty on offense. I've been playing as an OC so I can't really speak for defense. My only slider changes are Human QB Accuracy is turned down to 20 and CPU Interceptions is turned down to 20. Rest is default.

    The two biggest decisions are:

    - Coach Progression: Sounds like SLOW is the group pick.

    - Start as OC/DC or as HC: Is the DB Zone Aggressiveness bug still in the game? If it is, I say we start as 1-star HC.

    Once we get that figured out, I'll get the OD set-up and invites out. That should be in the next 24 hours.

    We can always adjust sliders/settings as we go but it sounds like 7-min qtrs.

    This is the last chance for any additional sliders/settings feedback.

    I'd rather start as a HC. I just enjoy the game a lot more when I'm in control of both sides.

    Basically! We'll start with 1* teams, but you can take any job offer you want as we progress.


    I'm thinking for rosters we will use BigWY's since he is nice enough to host them here exclusively and I know his crew did a lot of work in getting the coach file aspect up to par. It should be pretty fun to also be 'competing' against real-life coaches.

    I'd like 7 minute qtrs if its not a big deal. The games are long enough. It's tough fitting in a game with kiddos.

    Run Blocking: 40/50
    Pass Coverage: 50/55
    Interception: 30/45
    Rush Defense: 30/45

    Aggressive zones slider bug in the gameplay settings. If you sim and press R1 to view, the slider for zones changes to aggressive. Tried it out last night in another OD and it's still occurring.
