    After 7 weeks we've signed 4-3star and 1-2star recruit. We are 50th in the nation in recruiting. With Virginia I would not say that's too far off?

    I'm really thinking Heisman is the way to go right now. With the lack of super LBs, a new WIDE open passing mechanic for the suer to take advantage of, I think it just plays a solid game.

    AA isn't bad, but I didn't ever feel really threatened by the CPU offense on AA, it was more me making mistakes having just gotten the game and now that I am getting over that I am starting to steam roll

    I like the game quite a bit, I really do. yeah, there are some bugs here and there, but I think its a solid game of football. I havent played head-to-head yet but a guy on OS who is known for only playing online games posted a little review of it after playing 8 custom online games on heisman and he said it was a solid experience.

    What about yall?

    We have settled on heisman with slider tweaks of CPU pass cv at 45 and CPU ints at 45. The game is playing very good. We are throwing too many picks on bad decisions. The CPU pass rush is nasty and now that the CPU can run the read option we are getting hit with some big runs. Jared if you wanna see something cool play at GT on heisman. They work that FB hard and as soon as u sell out to stop him they fake it and that speedy QB takes it around the end for big yards.

    On average we are only getting 100-110 plays per game with 8 min quarters. We may wanna go 9 minute because real life average is 130-140 per game. We do play slower than most people though so I need feedback here.

    Signed another good 3 star. We are now ranked 39th in recruiting. Our DT's lead our team in sacks which is sad. I think the biggest reason for that is the CPU sometimes chooses not to throw the fuckin screen passes. I blocked an xp and returned a punt for a td. That was cool.

    So I am sold on heisman being the way to go this year. I just played a game, default sliders, 8 min qtrs, heisman diff, that by far has been the best one yet.

    Northwestern (me) AT Michigan State

    I lost 24 - 32, I had a pick six so it looked a little closer than it was.

    My stats:

    QB - 20/28/172/2TD/1INT/sacked 3x
    HB22 - 22att-56 yards
    HB32- 6att- 38yards
    my C had 3 pancakes (pancakes finally in the game!)
    SS24 - 8tackles, 1 INT/TD

    CPU stats -

    QB - 17/21/193/3td/1int/sacked 1x
    HB24 - 18 att- 161 yards, 1TD, long of 58

    This game was great. I didn't feel cheated at all, ever. If I gave up a big pass play it was because their guy was just a much better player, same with their power rush attack. The only complaint I had from this game is I saw 2x the CPU safety issue already noted by many on OS, in certain zone coverages it seems like they wig out and just bail on a route for no reason.

    Great game! Patch up these safeties EA and we have some pigskin action here.

    Im fired up, cant wait to start balling with yall.

    How do you guys feel about the new scouting and recruiting changes?

    I can't figure out how exactly you change your play style pitch...

    Can anyone summarize what scouting is like? I wish I had the season ticket so I could see. How many times can you scout your recruits?

    It sounds like it's based off your play style and performance in games. We control the MLB and are getting a ton of tackles so our MLB play style pitch is an A but conversely our QB is like a D because our stats are not good. That's what we are getting from it.

    You get 20 hours in the preseason but you only get 3 hours per week in the regular season. 60 minutes on a OL scouts them all the way but on an athlete you'd need closer to 3hours. The whole gem vs bust thing is awesome IMO. Overall the recruits are starting lower. We've signed around ten guys right now and our best recruit is scouted as a 69 DE who u can tell will be pretty good based on his attributes. I scouted the #1 recruit in the nation just to see and he was scouted at an 83 or something but before scouting it said he was an 85. It's really cool so far.

    Just some quick thoughts on the game so far:

    Game play on Heisman seems to be best. We're winning most of our games,but we aren't fuckin killin them either. Offensively we put up around probably 25 a game. Our D,however, only allows around 13. Which might be a problem. I mean Virginia's D probably shouldn't be that stout. Maybes it's just cuz we're awesome coordinators lol.

    The scouting is awesome. We just found another gem at qb. A 3 star that started at a 69 and ended up a 77. A 3 star, 77 ovr, scrambling qb is sweet. Not bad accuracy and thp both in the low 80s.

    The CPU needs to learn how to throw the ball when they call a hb screen. Takin way too many sacks.

    On Heisman its hard,almost scary, to pass. I definately throw my fair share of picks. Not complaining about this tho. I just need to get a better feel for it and have better play calls and know my hots.

    CPU offensively play calling is better but not perfect. They'll put together a couple good plays, get in the redzone, then fuck it up. Run north and south boys. Not east and west. Lol

    All and all I think it's a improvement from last years piece of shit.

    A TD, an on side kick and another TD in the final minute of the game earns Virginia a Chick Fil A Bowl victory over Mizzou. Final score 24-23 Cavaliers. Greatness score of 1091. What a ball game!

    I've been getting good games on heisman every time now.

    Anyone know when to expect named rosters, early next week or what?

    You guys must be a lot better with the MLB than I am, I can't seem to shed blocks I get caught up on an o-lineman easily. Are you guys using 8 min QTRs too? You mentioned 13 points allowed average what is the yardage lookin like from your CPU opponents? I'm getting good results from the CPU pro style running attack but I also don't use aggressive gameplan or run commit

    Also, have you guys mainly been targeting guys who are already interested or are you going after guys who don't have you in the top 10? I'll check out dynasty once the UFC fights end

    In week one of a NU dynasty right now, love the scouting system, thought it was cool that I got 3 insta commits from 3* guys in week one but then I realized I was still on varsity recruiting lol, oh well.

    Deadlocked 10-10 in the third qtr against Syracuse right now. For default heisman the game is playing well and im having a really good time.

    I just simmed through a season with KSU. I simmed all the games and went 10-3 with a Cotton Bowl win. I really tried hard and paid extra close attention to recruiting and after the season ended I finished 5th in the nation in recruiting. Now I'm sure some of that was not typical of what we will see but it certainly shows that heisman recruiting isn't too hard.

    After playing a bunch of games I think the best part of the heisman game play is mostly the CPU decision making is better. It's really not much harder than AA. You pay dearly for bad decisions in the passing game and the CPU runs the ball better than they ever have. I control the MLB and if a OL gets his hands on you you are gonna have a tough time making a play. I think if I can win on heisman any of you can. I have always been good on D but my offense is pretty weak and I beat Oklahoma at Oklahoma with KSU on heisman difficulty. So we will start on heisman in the first year.

    Cool beans brothaman Dips.

    Are you pretty set on default sliders for heisman for the time being? Just curious.

    One of the problems with OS slider sets is almost everyone on there uses slow speed and none of the ODs on here do.

    Getting close boys! Keep me updated.

    I'm pretty down for default heisman at this point. I've never even touched game speed. Have any of u tried it on slow? I will try some games on slow if I get time.

    I think this game is finally gettin pretty good, it's about time they get it somewhat close to right. Anyway default heisman is great. I've beat the shit out of some teams, had high scoring shootouts, beat a team 10 to 7 and gotten beat down. I think most of us are gonna win most of our cpu games but it's gonna be way tough to beat the good teams in our confrences. Which imo is perfect.

    User passing is tough but I'm gettin better. That actually happens pretty much every year: I get frustrated cause I can't pass then after awhile I'm able to read the defense better. User rushing is about right I get blown up sometimes and other times I rip off 15 yard runs. Cpu passing seems to go up and down depending heavily on their QB. Washington States senior QB lit me up. I could not run the right defense on any play. After that I played TCU, their startin QB got hurt and I beat them cause he was rattled and couldn't throw worth a shit.

    Recruiting and scouting are great. The new scouting feature makes things a lot better

    Overall I think this game is really close finally and for that I'm happy

    I agree Dink

    For some reason, yesterday was the first day I really started getting excited. At first I was like, this game is pretty good, but yesterday I played like 3 games in a row where the CPU just gave me a hell of a good game on default heisman. Of course, you guys know me, I would always like to tweak here and there, but as a base for everyone, its hard to complain.
