NC Conference Bug

Iím just noticing after running multiple sims that the NC conference (blue) has a disproportionate amount of bowl wins compared to the AC conference (red). My theory would be that this game is giving the NC team the home field advantage in the Superbowl. Does anyone else notice this with their saves or Iím just extremely unlucky? Thanks!

In my current save, I just finished my 11th season. NC has 6 bowls to AC's 5. AC has won the last 3 in a row.

Heh. I think he's on to something. I have three 100-year sims saved. I just checked. 62, 65, and 66 wins for the NFC out of 100 bowls. And yeah, in every bowl that I clicked on, the NFC team is the bottom/home team.

Do you think it matters who's listed at the bottom if it's at a neutral site? Although, your numbers do raise that question.

If Jim simply forgot to remove the hfa factor for the bowl, it seems logical that the bottom team would be the home team getting the advantage.

Yep. I just ran 8 more sims of 50+ years and the AFC conference never led the two conferences in bowl wins. I hope they can fix this soon

Hopefully this gets fast-tracked. It's a pretty significant issue. Anything that messes with the integrity of an entire season's result is significant.

9-4 in favor of the NFC in my current league. Just to add to the sample size.

I'm seeing some in-balance in the Bowl results as well so wanted to give this a bump. Would be nice to know if it is working as intended or not.

Since as an AFC team, I just lost 2 in a row, I'll add my complaints. Checked that career it is around 62 out 96 years won by NFC if I counted correctly.

Did someone report it?

I reported it twice as well as posted about it on itís Steam discussion to get it some more attention within the community. Itís disappointing to be checking every day to see if thereís a hotfix and finding nothing. They donít seem to be worrying about it too much. Youíd think that something that compromises the integrity of the game to this degree would get fast tracked and hot fixed. I really donít understand the delay here. I just want to religiously play this game again
