32 Team Control, Several Questions Needing Answers!

It's been a long time since I tried 32 team control and I guess some things have changed. I wanted to try 32 team control mostly due to the awful CPU drafting, especially QBs. I was going to set the other teams to run themselves but then pick up and do rounds 1-3 of the draft myself.

I started my team (Eagles) as the coach.

Then I set all other 31 teams to auto pilot after creating an owner for each.

As I went through the season it became obvious that the Autopilot teams were not advancing coaches or players and would not fire/hire coaches.

I simmed to the offseason and found the Autopilot teams also didn't sign FA's or make draft trade offers.

What did I need to do to get the CPU to "run" the other teams?

I think you have to set the options like free agency, progress players, scouting to auto and not manual. I donít do 32 team control but I have seen around the website people saying autopilot doesnít do any of these things. Maybe try out what I suggested and see if that works?

I was wondering if that might be the issue. Seems like Autopilot does little.

Think of it as how auto pilot works in an airplane.

It maintains the current trajectory with no changes until changes are made by user input.

To get what you want, leave auto pilot off and set the options of each team to auto or manual.

I set everything to auto. Before week 1 I do each teams depth chart and coach season goal. Then each week I cycle through and do all dev trait related scenarios. The mock draft 3/4 are helpful because it will help you control the draft manually.

Honestly... Madden 08, Tecmo Bowl, Even 2K5 and just playing one game after another in season mode with stat and standings tracking is all I need and all sports games have become a nightmare with their stupid fantasy franchise modes. Just my opinion.


So since you donít know what youíre doing the whole mode is stupid. Thanks for your input

Is 32 team control exclusive to next gen?
