I have been playing around with different slider sets on here and I gave this a shot today. Played about 5 games with out of the box AA sliders, while only moving cpu run block to 60, and I had good results.
I played several matchups, some closely matched teams and one blowout as Florida vs Miami of Ohio. Overall this may be the best time I have had on this game so far.
I maxed out all penalties etc for holding, facemask, clipping left them at 55 and I have the speed settings at normal anywhere from 0-25, been playing around with that.
I am all for a challenge but if I'm Ohio State and I'm playing Ohio, it really shouldn't be a close game and that varies by skill set I know via sliders; however, I really like default sliders for realism on AA as of now.
