Two-Way Players; High school teams often have times where many players will play both ways (offense and defense). For the purposes of this project, if a player does play two-ways, then they will be created twice; once for their offensive position and once for their defensive position. Try to keep the players speed and acceleration the same for both positions, but not all ratings need to be identical. Essentially you are creating two seperate players that happen to have the same name, number, height, weight, etc. This will allow for better gameplay and roster structure. The players OVR does not need to be the same for both positions and in many cases should be different. A player may be a better RB then LB, etc.
If these guidelines are not followed your team will not be posted.
Program Prestige: This will be based on the popularity of the school on a NATIONAL level. This can be debatable, if you have questions...ask and we can receive input from others on how well known that particular school is. This really isn't that important as I doubt many people will be importing high school teams into their Dynasties for recruiting purposes...
- Nationally Known: 5 stars
- Regionally Known: 4 stars
- State Known: 3 stars
- County/State Known: 2 stars
- Unknown: 1 star
Academic Prestige: This could vary a lot, so that's up to you!
Campus Lifestyle: Another one that's up to you.
Coach Experience: Give a bonus of one grade if the Coach has experience as an FBS Head Coach/NFL coaching experience; or a full letter grade for experience as an NFL HC.
No exp: D
Less than 2 years exp: D+
3 years: C
5 years: C+
7 years: B
10 years exp: B+
Coach Prestige: If the coach has been part of a successful team, as a player or coach they should be highly ranked. Also if they had respectable careers as players adjust accordingly.
Championship Contender: Debatable...
Athletic Facilities: Should be no higher than C+ with 95% of schools falling in the D/D+ range.
Pro Potential: This will factor in current NFL players, past NFL players, and the level of their success. (Non-NFL players may have a small impact: UFL, AFL, AFL2, CFL, etc.) Cap at C+.
Program Stability: Debatable and higher grades given to schools with a streak of winning seasons longer than 5 years. Programs with head coaching changes should see a penalty.
Program Tradition: Debatable and higher grades should be given to schools with a reputation of winning, putting out quality players, have a name that college football fans know.
Fan Base: Debatable
Once you complete a team, post it it here with your XBox/PS Gamertag and the Timestamp. If you do not follow the guidelines I will not include it in the list.
If you have any questions/comments/suggestions feel free to ask, lets work as a team to create the most realistic replications around!
