X-factor work around

Is there any way to change x-factor abilities for drafted players. I did a custom draft that I created my son as a Steve young clone. But he got all running abilities and noting for passing. If I change his play type will his abilities change? A

2 options.

1. You can go into edit player (in franchise mode) and switch their dev trait down to normal exit the menu and then go back and return it to X factor. You should get newly generated abilities (but depending on the stats of the player thereís on certain ones available)

2. Retire your coach or owner and create a new user in player mode as that player. Youíll get to manually pick your abilities. Retire as the player (donít worry the player doesnít actually retire) and return as your coach

You need to go into the player edit screen and change the development trait to normal , exit player edit , reenter player edit and change the development trait back to xfactor. It will reroll what abilities you get.

You may need to edit the player ratings to change the archetype for the abilities that you want. (strong arm, improvisor, scrambling , field general these all have differant abilities)

After you get the abilities that you want you can change the player ratings back to what they were before.

I had no idea you could pick abilities by being the player, thanks for that tip.

Re: X-factor work around

Everytime I retire my created player with the ablities I want them to have, they actually retire when I go back to the coach. Is there a workaround for that?

Retire as a current player thatís low on a depth chart (ie long snapper/TE).

Re: X-factor work around

Doesn't seem to work, I retired as my current coach and created a new character. The new character is the created player with the abilities I want for my player. I retired as him and choice a current player to play as. When I did that my created player retired and I was stuck playing as the current player. What am I doing wrong lol?
