I'm just going around now testing/trying new things as I'm being more entertained testing than attempting a CFM that will just frustrate me. So if you want something tested say on AM let me know I've really wanted to get back there anyway.
Sounds good....try the OP set on AM and see what you think. And yes...AM is quite fickle.....

Just finished my first game on AM as the 'Skins versus the Seahawks and got demolished. It wasn't unreal either on their side of the ball. Lynch ran like Lynch. Wilson hit 59.3% of his passes with 4 TDs and ran the ball well when he took off. Most importantly, they finished their drives - unlike on AP where the CPU always seems to have a dropped pass or an INT. My offense was anemic though - could not run the ball consistently and McCoy (filling in for an injured RGIII) threw 2 picks. Need to play another game or two to see some variation....but it played liked a tougher version of the AP set; which I was praying for.

My next two games are against Arizona and Tennessee. Once I have finished those off after work tomorrow, I will decide what (if any) slider changes might be needed.

That all said:

I just don't think AP can hold up long-term for experienced users. The problem is that the CPU will make mistakes at the worst time. I never feel like I can be blown away by a good team. With the confidence system in place, it would be far too easy to gain momentum in a season (even with a mediocre team) and ride it. It then snowballs and before you know it, you have a 'super team'. You get good games on All Pro with good stats and it feels good; but over the long haul, it is just too easy to put up a winning record year after year.


I do feel though that it is easiest to build an AM set once you have a good AP set as a base.

So, what I am asking people to try out is this set on AP and especially on AM. I will admit that I have not tried this out yet on AM, but on some preliminary testing on v. 1.1, I found that it was translating pretty well and that minimal tweaks should be needed.

The OP has been updated with the new settings....
I am going to test out your full slider settings; excellent work Josh...

Josh-so can I expect these changes to make games more challenging on all-pro? I'm assuming that is what you're targeting with the changes. Reason I ask is I just "graduated" to all-pro and I just started a season using your sliders prior to these latest adjustments. Through only one game I really enjoyed the feel and challenge of the game but obviously need to play more. Would you recommend I switch to the new adjustments if I was already getting a challenge on your settings prior to these? Any adjustments I should make regardless of the challenge (ie IG setting) just because they make the game better? Thanks!!

Busted off a 67yd TD with Stacy using no moves at all. Actually kinda proud of me performance with Laurinaitis in this one. I player locked with him all game and easily came up with my highest tackle total this year.

Playing with you current set on AM, just got 7 sacks on Foles, and, as far as I can tell, he never tried to throw the ball away . .

I was seemingly having more success with your previous penalty settings, but I will test this a little more.

What were his traits set to? How did the rest of the set feel, look, play?

Re: JoshC1977s M15 Set

Hey Josh I was talking to Fist yesterday about the WR catch slider. Have you done anything with it in regards to seeing if higher values would effect how WRs attack the ball?

It's just peaked my interest the past couple days and was wondering if you ever looked at that.
