    Like Escobar said, I don't "think" it happens if you are a HC, so I feel great that we did not go as OC/DC this year. I am very frustrated/disappointed that issue has not been addressed yet (three years in).

    It still happens if you're a head coach...just don't sim (and probably watch the plays) on defense.

    In NCAA 13, yes. In 14, not sure with the new recruiting system.

    I played several games with both slider set-ups detailed in this thread. The Operation Sports setup is better IMO. Passing is more difficult in it and running is actually doable. I was constantly getting tackled from behing by DTs and DEs when I ran the ball in Snoop's setup. The 20 speed threshold isn't enough to make up for the reduced RB ability. I do like Snoops penalty setup, as it was nice to see pass interference called on the CPU once.

    So in summary, my recommendation/preference:
    - Use Op Sports for Human and CPU sliders
    - Use Snoop's for penalties

    Thoughts?

    Snoop has actually abandoned his sliders. We've been testing in Powerhouse and we found that using the updated player ratings' sliders w/ a threshold of 23 gives the best gameplay. I think we should use the penalty set up in this set also, because he found that they affect the cpu ai some, such as when the QB chooses to scramble. Here they are:

    Difficulty: Heisman

    Quarter Length: 8 minutes.

    Speed: Normal

    Threshold: 23

    Game Play Sliders: User/CPU
    QB Accuracy: 5/5
    Pass Blocking: 45/40
    WR Catching: 30/40
    RB Ability: 60/80
    Run Blocking: 40/50
    Pass Coverage: 55/55
    Interception: 35/45
    Rush Defense: 35/50
    Tackling: 50/50

    Special Teams
    FG Power: 45/40
    FG Accuracy: 5/35
    Punt Power: 20/45
    Punt Accuracy: 50/50
    Kickoff Power: 50/45

    Penalties
    Offside: 50
    False Start: 50
    Holding: 50
    Face Mask: 55
    OPI: 50
    DPI: 50
    KR/PR Inter: 50
    Clipping: 55
    Int Grounding: 75
    RTP: 54
    RTK: 50

    Yea I've had the same issue in another OD. Might be a custom pb issue. If you make changes to your cpb I probably wouldn't practice with it until the week is advanced. Anyway not sure if that helps but it seems to have worked for me.

    I'll usually try to fill out team needs first as far as selecting recruits. Then I'll do a search for all recruits who have me as their top choice and I'll choose the ones I want. Then I'll choose from the ones that have me in their top 5. Then it's just a matter of choosing from the leftovers to pickup or shore up pipelines. Can't say much on point distribution because its all new this year but that's usually the blue print I follow.

    ty Marlowe , it is happening when i practice outside the OD also, so I'm not sure what is happening. i will do some research on it! thanks for the info on recruiting, that is similar to the way i set up my board, i used heavy points on my highest overall rank players !

    I feel like something needs to be done with the sliders. As Lafayette, there is no way I should be 2-0, esp over Arkansas, and @#17 Kansas St. Though Im not complaing about my record, im concerned about the realism of the dynasty. After being down to K-State 14-0 quickly, I was pretty much able to do whatever I wanted to do on offense (scored 21 unanswered points) The cpu WR's dropped some passes that might have impacted the game a little, but their offensive play calling became terrible (running back to back screen plays multiple times) Although I am struggling passing the ball like other users seem to be, I could run the ball all game against them. They were averaging 13 yards per rushing attempt on me early and they just seemed to go away from it which I dont understand.

    IMO, raise user/cpu acc to 10-15, raise cpu rushing D, and raise cpu WR catching. What do you guys think?

    Sliders adjusted to what Escobar posted above. The only difference may be INTs dropped 5 lower for both HUM/CPU. I'll double check before the next advance, but I agree with marcotte and others that some tweaks need made.

    EDIT - HANDS posted that as I responded. Please post any thoughts on those and I can add them in before the advance tonight.

    My only concern area with the set I posted remains Pass Coverage and if it needs to go up further. I wanted to try a few games with a 75 or so rated QB and see how it played first though. My QB in my offline dynasty is a 95 Overall with 99 Accuracy and I had ~ 70% for 280 yards/gm and only 1 INT over the 3 games I played. If it is still fairly accurate with a poor QB then Coverage would probably be a good thing to turn up. INTs may need to go down if coverage goes up cause defensive players are still really good at catching with INT at 30.

    I don't think there is anything that can be done about the terrible play calling of the AI. It is going to cause games here and there where the CPU doesn't put up realistic numbers. It has always seemed like the defensive plays the user is running has a very big effect on what they call. If you are calling blitzes all the time, they are going to call short passes and screens. If you are calling zones, they call routes down the field that find the holes or run the ball. If you call man to man, they will use misdirection plays or run with their QB. The game situation will get them to stray from these a bit towards the end of the game. But for the most part, what you call is gonna effect what they call.

    The set I posted at the end of the Week 1 thread has the updated ratings set that Charter is using. He raised Human WR Catching, lowered Human Run Blocking (which will address marcotte's issue. Raising cpu rushing d only makes them more aware of the run, not get off blocks), raised pass coverage for Human and CPU.

    I think 10 is the highest QBA should go. If you go any higher the qb's will be too accurate and the only way that we will get realistic incompletions will be the game causing wr drops.

    I disagree. 10 and 5 introduce such a high level of randomness, it takes the fun out of playing.
