    Granted, its with sliders, but those sliders make my QB worse, not better :lol:.

    Starting to figure it out, especially against ****tier teams. Tyler just went 14 of 21 for 301 and 4 TD's against UCLA. No bull**** ones either. Just figuring out how to beat certain coverages. The hardest one to beat is still man to man, but placement seems to matter more than ever with those. The slant route is dead against man coverage unless your WR is just a BA, but drag routes seem to be working ok. Also, bunch formations and trips are the bomb. Really short hitches also have to be a big part of your gameplan against man coverage, and especially with TE's. The TE is a weapon in this game.

    Effing Dominant. I've made it harder for me with sliders and Speedy is in the Heisman race with just under 2000 yards on around 250 carries... only one game under 100 yards, and several games well over 200.

    Deehan was really the only guy I could ever pass to. I'm just on all american with 5 minute quarters. I never really mess with the settings (sliders? I'm new to these) much. What quarter length are you guys using?

    Go to operation sports (google it). The NCAA Football/Sliders forum is where you can go. Really helps the gameplay imho. I play 7 min quarters/slow....

    Call me when you guys start playing Heisman. Every first play is a minefield.

    Passing really isn't hard. You just have to have touch so the LB doesn't knock it down, aim so the DB won't deflect it, and make good reads. Hell the biggest issues I'm having is running the ball.

    My question is: Whenever I press the "triangle" button to catch or intercept, they never catch it. In the past this used to be the "catch" button. Now on defense it just swats it away and on offense it turns their hands to bricks.

    If I press nothing, they do catch it.

    Yeah, I don't ever take control of the WRs or DBs because that just seems to **** things up. I'm getting better, but still throwing lots of interceptions.

    Strangely enough, NC State won the BCS over Stanford in my dynasty. :lol:

    On Friday night I tried the sliders (I was using default settings). I went from having a top 3 defense in the nation to giving up almost 700 yards passing to Hawaii. Holy crap. I bumped the pass coverage slider up (it was 40 on the sliders, I put it at 50) and I'm still getting killed. That's going to take an adjustment. Other than the Ohio State game (5 INT's. Ugh), I'm with Snow -- passing is tons easier with the sliders.

    And PRich is a badass.

    I didn't move the sliders on my CU dynasty. I actually have a much easier time passing than running. And Stewart is injured for the season now (vs Stanford)

    Well, I just played a game and went 5-26 passing and got shut out 37-0. Stats said I had 4 drops but it was more like 10. Every type too...Getting stripped by cb, getting hit by cb, doinking off shoulder pads/helmet etc. I guess I need to try sliders or something because that was just retarded.

    Plus they were up 30-0 and still passing under a minute. The computer has no sportsmanship! :lol:

    Just played quite a few games. The passing game is pretty ridiculous on this version. There were 10 INT's in one game I played and I think at least 7 were by LB's:wow:

    Hirschman on Heisman (adjusted sliders some to take down interceptions, but QB rating and catching is down as well) Putting up roughly 300 ypg. At least one pick per game though, and a few disaster games.

    What is your offense? And I hope you are in the dynasty.

    I can't throw in this game without throwing at least 2 picks a game. Did you pump up Hirshman? He's crap out of the box

    A little, but the rate of advancement in this game is ridiculous.

    I've only played a few games and this game is definitely different from last year. CU's pass D is ****ing awful. I scored a TD to go up by 7 on Hawaii with like 30 seconds left and they answered by easily throwing a hail mary and naturally both my guys were 15 yards behind the WR.. They scored 3 TDs in OT in about 4 plays and then easily completed the 2 point conversion to beat me. :mad: I moved the difficulty down to varsity and beat Ohio State, but still had some trouble.

    You guys are nuts playing on heisman level.. I can't stand playing football games on the high difficulty levels. It's like getting kicked in the nuts continually the entire game. Cheating ass CPU with Lebron James playing MLB and Deion Sanders playing CB on every team.

    Nebraska's spread. It's funny because since this post I've seen a bit more interceptions but I play a run offense mostly and usally only pass 1 out of every 4 plays. I just see if they're in zone or man before I snap. Adjust to my TE or WR's in hot routes accordingly depending on what defense they're running and snap the ball. It's easy to get past Man defenses with hot routes. Before I snap I slide protect with my line to pickup any blitzes I see coming. I turned it down from Heisman to All Star because some teams are f'ing impossible to stop on defense on Heisman. Misdirection runs work outstanding in this game.
