S.O.S. Sliders (All-American)

Strategy Over Skillz
All-American Sliders

What does S.O.S. mean?
This implies that you are a football fan who tends to stay true to the game. There might be a few plays here and there that are money, but you know better than to call them in those sticky situations. If you're as extreme as me, you've taken those money plays out of your playbooks thanks to custom playbooks. Bottom line: you do not exploit the game.

If you run as many plays from your playbook as you have fingers, please do me a favor and leave. Thanks

_______________________________________

My take on the sliders:
To keep it simple, I was fed up with Heisman and their crazy FG's. Yes, it's that bad. If they patch the decision making I will more than likely head back to Heisman. I feel as though this set is a great challenge. I have heard many complaints of the CPU defenders jumping routes and making crazy interceptions, but I have yet to see anything like that.

Additional steps I take that make NCAA 12 more enjoyable:
Right now I'm in the process of creating custom playbooks for the CPU. I am going to make 14 playbooks for the CPU that should hit on all types of offenses they could run. The thought process behind this is to eliminate useless plays the CPU normally runs. Notre Dame running a QB option for a guaranteed 5 yard loss? Well that won't happen anymore. I take it a step further and I am going to create custom playbooks for their defense too. I will never have to see another Engage 8 which makes me happy.

Post Patch #2 changes in BOLD

Potential changes:
Up CPU QB accuracy +5
Up HUM INT +5

I really don't have too many complaints to be honest!

Plays eliminated from the CPU offensive playbooks:
Four verts
QB draw/option (I only use QB run plays if they have mobile QBs)
HB slip screens

Defensive:
Engage 8 and any other blitz that would expose the defense to get burned easily...like if they bring both corners.

_____________

Let me just add that in my last game the CPU had the ball on my 38 yard line and it was 4th down...they punted.

Re: S.O.S. Sliders (All-American)

Cool I like what your doing I think I am going to have to do the same. There are a couple other plays that are not named 4 verts but have the slot guy running diagonal and are money as well not sure what their called. Are eliminating 4 wide sets all together or just the streaks?

Re: S.O.S. Sliders (All-American)

Here's the first game in my dynasty and let me highlight a few things:

#1- I had some terribly poor tackling attempts
#2- My favorite play of the game starts up around 5:20...it is beautiful
#3- Late in the game you see a long run by me negated by a holding penalty...very few penalties in the game overall
#4- Here you can see the recap: http://ndalum.webs.com/VirginiaFootb...hCarolina.html

Re: S.O.S. Sliders (All-American)

Just played two great games with this slider set using Tennessee. I beat Alabama 13-7 and lost to Fla. St. 27-17. I did make one change and that was setting Speed Threshold at 43. Everything else is as you have it posted. Stats were very realistic. QB percentages were in the low 50s to mid 60s for all teams. Averaged 2-3 sacks per game for Human and CPU. Running looked great also. I used "ask coach" for play calling and only used one of the 3 plays given. Overall great job on the slider set!

Re: S.O.S. Sliders (All-American)

I don't know if I will use the slider set as I use a team vs team slider set, but I really like the ideal of using a custom playbook for CPU teams. Some of the plays are just bad. You could also update team playbooks if they get a running QB or such in future years.
