Re: How to challenge a play?

None of the scenarios I listed arent part of the "dead ball" rule....you can challenge the spot of the ball near the first down marker, you can challenge if the receiver caught the ball in or out of bounds, and you can challenge touchdown or not whether it's a spot of the ball or a catch out of bounds....whenever those scenarios come up and the refs "discuss" the results it won't allow me to challenge.

OooooooK.

That makes sense. Because both plays on 3rd and short I wanted to challenge, the HB was stood up and pushed back.

So I guess thats why I coudn't challenge that...

As for the CPU TD I swore was OOB I wanted to challenge, the refs did get together and that cutscene happened before they made the call.

So I guess thats why I coudn't challenge that...


Gee... you would have to have an amazing eye to challenge a play in this game...

Can you watch a replay and still challenge? Or does watching a replay in any way stop you from being able to challenge?

I'm pretty sure watching the replay elminates your ability to challenge. You just have to be selective.

I mainly use my challenges in a game changing situation (ex- a fumble inside my 20 when I am already trailing by 7 etc.) At that point it's a matter of necessity. If I have a substantial lead I might not worry about it, but I have had several fumbles on KO returns etc that were wither TD for the defense or put me at a huge disadvantage.

Re: How to challenge a play?

Yeah, watching the replay before you challenge isn't allowed, or at least it wasn't allowed in previous years. But the challenge system is kinda messed up, I've run into a lot of situations where I couldn't challenge when it is technically allowed. I've also only seen a booth review once out of all the games I've played, that's kinda unrealistic.

Booth review only once? I get it once every 4 or so game.

Re: How to challenge a play?

Ug, I had another instance where a CPU receiver made a sideline catch, there was a quick cutscene where the refs ruled it inbounds...

I did NOT watch the replay, and wanted to try and challenge the catch, had time outs and everything. And the challenge option simply wasnt there...

I'm so confused by this...

Then next play, the CPU makes a totally legal decent catch, and just for fun I checked if that was challengeable, and it was!!!

WTF?

I dunno, I just give up on challengeing.

Also, when the CPU does decide to challenge something, the ruling is ALWAYS overturned. I've never seen the CPU challenge and not get the favorable ruling.

I gotta be missing something here...

I don't think so...I think it's just a flaw in the game. It happens rather frequently. I wanted to challenge a play last night b/c it appeared that the CPU did not get the ball over the pylon. Went to options, and I can't challenge. To confirm for myself, I viewed the replay. Well of course I still couldn't tell if he got in b/c the replay cuts off the millisecond that the play is technically over.

heh, that stinks, lol.

It's just weird how a run-of-the mill play will be challengable. But a close sideline catch isnt...

Like I was playing last night, and on 1st and 10, my HB ran for 3 yards up the middle before being hit.

I checked coaching options and "challenge play" was there... lol, why would I challenge my own play??

And the case I discussed above, a close CPU catch occurs on the sideline and no challenge is available under coaching options?

Somethings rotten in the state of Denmark...

Its almost like, if a cutscene occurs the challenge option dissapears...

I dunno, maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm right, maybe its a bug...

If it is messed up maybe patch 2 will fix it..

Speaking of patch 2... Where the **** is patch 2 already??
