Re: How Do You Get Into Dynasties When You Aren't Reporting

I know this is an old thread, but I figured I'd chime in -

For me, playing a dynasty and reporting on the dynasty are synonymous. I can't play a dynasty without documenting everything.

It would leave an empty feeling churning through seasons and not being able to go back and look at the history, the pics from the game, the details from the game, the reader reactions, etc. There is no greater joy in football video gaming than being able to go back and look at your old games days, weeks, months, or even years after they've been played.

I agree, at this point with playing video games I always go back and review past seasons. sp even when Iím not reporting for a chise Iím always writing things down I may forget to add more depth to my chise

Re: How Do You Get Into Dynasties When You Aren't Reporting

Ever since I found OS and started documenting my dynasties/franchises, I have yet to find a way to enjoy or stay committed to a dynasty/franchise when I'm not reporting it in some capacity. Even if I don't post it here on OS, I always need to have some sort of spreadsheet handy where I'm taking down boxscores, award winners, etc. My gaming time now is very, very limited so I like to make it count but still want to document it. It's quite the Catch-22.

Re: How Do You Get Into Dynasties When You Aren't Reporting

I used to love to do reporting, creating layouts, modding the HTML code from OS,writing stories, etc. I still have delusions I could still do it but reality sets in and I just don't have the time any more with family, home, work, etc. I do admit that I find not having the "pressure" of making notes, going through highlights, getting screenshots, editing layouts to be fun too, but I still miss reporting.

They way I try to get into a franchise is come up with a way to make it fun even if I'm not reporting, like last year in Madden 18, I took the Browns and through roster management and equivalent ratings trades, filled the roster with rookies and 2nd year players, got through 1 season and did get them to the playoffs.

This year I have taken my home team Falcons and again through the same kind of roster management and the Browns deal, made their roster all SEC alums and am playing test games to get fun and fair game play settings to hopefully take it into a franchise.

But I'm also kicking around an idea of creating an Auburn Legends roster somehow and using the Bears or Broncos (team colors.) The quickest way I've found to do that is just edit existing players that are most similar to the Auburn players I want on the team...time consuming though. I think that idea comes from still missing an NCAA Football game.

I still find myself designing layouts in the hopes of using them but it's a lot of work and a lot of time I just don't have right now. I do miss it though.
