Playing Longer Quarters Equals Better Sim Experience?

It sounds like it n order to get the best sim experience, it's best to play longer quarters. That has to mean accelerated clock is in too right? To play 15 minute quarters with a regular play clock would take forever, as well as scoring would be out of hand.

Im looking forward to seeing how the game plays fresh out of the box for about a month, and then I'll be getting into sliders etc. Hopefully we'll have even more to play around with to tune the game towards the best sim experience

I would assume any options in Madden like accelerated clock, play call limits and cool downs, etc. are all going to be in CFB25.

I can't play for less than 15 minute quarters in football no more than I could play a 5 inning baseball game, so the key for me is to get the difficulty level and all sliders dialed in just right. Though a great thing about college football is it isn't unrealistic to go unbeaten and dominating your opponents in the process whereas in baseball if I won 75% of my games, I would quit the season and start again with a harder sliders setting. I'm also not opposed to accelerated clocks but I usually don't mind playing Madden with accelerated clocks OFF, if I have time to play a drawn out game.

With Madden, I do 90% Spectator Mode and 10% actually playing. So, I've always done 15 minute quarters with accelerated clock set at 12 seconds. I see myself playing the college game a whole lot more than I did Madden, and I want to play 15 minute quarters. So, having the accelerated clock feature will be key.

I mean it kind of makes sense that the closer you play to realistic quarter lengths, the more sim/real life the game would be, right ?

I donít think this is anything alarming.

I've always felt that as long as you get the right amount of plays per game it doesn't matter what the quarter length or if accelerated clock is on or off.
