CAPs Etiquette Question

Hey, folks. I'm doing research for my CAPs, and I am wondering how people feel about 5 ability golds. I've never played with a CAP, but I have found out that you can get the roster files pretty easily to be able to create 5 ability golds, and I'm wondering if it's considered cheap to do so. My interest is in creating historical teams, and in doing so in the most realistic way possible. I've thought about the '91 Falcons, for example, and if I were to create Deion, I'd probably want to give him coverage bonus, speed burner, closing speed, ballhawk, and return specialist, as he deserves all of those (and perhaps another couple). Not every historical team would have a player that deserves 5 abilities, and I would never create "Jim" with speed & power, stamina, breakaway burst, branching tackles, and strength bonus (I've seen that, by the way), but I am curious what others think.

Re: CAPs Etiquette Question

Im in the same boat as you Trojan,I compiled a list today of guys I want to create to give certain positions some depth to choose from like Gold WR's and CB's....I never reached all the achievements myself to get the 5 attribute CAP so im stuck myself in the same situation....

Re: CAPs Etiquette Question

I know. There are some guys who really deserve five and sometimes more, like LT and Deion. If I were to create a guy like Art Monk, though, I'd give him possession receiver, route god, soft hands, and tough over the middle--four abilities and not five. I'm sure there are other examples, perhaps even ones where less abilities would be called for, but I don't know that it makes five abilities un-sim. I am curious what others think, though.

Re: CAPs Etiquette Question

Given the proper player (like your Dieon ex I dont have any problem with 5 ability CAPs.

Re: CAPs Etiquette Question

I thought most people would agree on a handful of guys like Deion, LT, and maybe Bruce Smith or someone like that. However, the sim CAP sites on the 2k boards, which look like pretty fair renditions of players whose careers I watched, have 5 abilities for guys that the average gamer may not know and I was unsure how the folks on these boards felt about some of those examples. Ken Houston is one, Bobby Bell another, and the list goes on. I check the HOF bios, look for scouting reports online, and look at player stats to get a sense of abilities even when making caps from the sim CAPs list, but I'm sure there are those out there who would see a name they don't know and think it's cheese.

Then, there is the separate issue of recreating teams from specific years. I want to do the '91 Falcons, 'cause I always liked the Glanville era and that team was a surprise (winning the division that year, I think). I have to create two golds, Deion being the obvious, but Rison is a potential stretch IMO. His credentials make him a borderline candidate, and the abilities I gave him (speed burner, deep threat, quick feet, acrobatic catches, and soft hands) all apply, though I could see someone quibbling.

I'll also have to allocate two silvers to borderline players (Mike Haynes had a great year that year, as did Tim McKeyer; Mike Kenn was a 5x Pro Bowler at LT). The bronzes are a non issue, but I thought there would be more dialogue on this point here. I suppose its absence means that nobody really worries about it, and that more or less answers my question.

I don't really have a problem with them myself, though I do tire of seeing the guys who create themselves or who make players with stacked abilities that don't have any basis in the history of the game.

I see no issues with it. PLaying online some players have issues playing against created players, but I wouldnt think those people would mind as much so long as they were real players.

And from the quote above...are you saying that if you get someone's roster file that has the 5 ability gold's unlocked, you can then make 5 ability gold's without having to get all achievements?

Re: CAPs Etiquette Question

Yup, that's what I'm saying. If you're on PS3, I can post a link where you can find the profile save. It's a nice perk and extends the life of the game a bit.

Re: CAPs Etiquette Question

Could you do that please? That would extend the life of this game by a lot indeed.
