In previous NCAA Football games, each conference's prestige rating was predetermined and would never change, regardless of how teams were performing throughout the course of a dynasty.
In NCAA Football 13, every conference's prestige will now rise or fall depending on how its members perform during the season. Specifically, the prestige rating will be determined by the BCS ranking of the top six schools in each league.
That means smaller groups like the Mountain West or Conference USA can eventually bolster their recruiting power and start earning higher-rated recruits if their teams are consistently finishing in the top 25.
Likewise, just because the SEC, Big 12, Big Ten, or Pac-12 begin the dynasty as the highest rated leagues, that doesn't mean they will stay at the top forever. Another disappointing season from Michigan or Ohio State could drop the Big Ten's prestige down a notch, lowering the entire conference's chances of bringing in top recruits.
Dynamic conference ratings should make NCAA Football 13's Dynasty Mode more interesting and unpredictable, as the balance of power will be constantly changing across the various leagues.
Do you think dynamic conference prestige will add or subtract to the game? Are you worried it might be overdone?
