Posted by tigerpark135 on 8/22/2013 11:33:00 AM (view original):It's a topic because it is frustrating coaches who are supposed to be testing this beta engine so much that they are getting frustrated and moving back down to lower levels or quitting all together. What does it matter how awful the sim teams are in beta, as we are all starting from scratch at DIII and moving our way up. Everyone knows they are going for elites, doesn't matter what their record was previously! I had 16 scholarships, only had 5 green on the day of signings, with 8 yellow and 2 red. Signed only 3 of those yellows. Ended up signing 16 but can say only the 8 are really worth having as the rest are all D1AA players if that! To me it makes no sense in having recruiting different in the beta version as it is in the real version! How can we truly test this sim if we can't sign quality recruits??
The recruiting was changed before beta even started. It was one of the first things that Norbert did. He did it so that the long time Sim teams would not be so God aweful and perhaps appeal to a new user to take.
I cant believe this is a 1. a topic and 2. people dont remember.
I hear you loud and clear on that issue. And that is a problem for testing at DI. I have been in d3 the whole entire beta testing time trying to test the best. So, I have not experienced your frustrations.
However, I might be off base but to me testing is testing no matter what division.
Here is what we know. Recruiting is fine in version 2. Everyone or most agree. Many things in version 3 still need fixing eg.. WIDE RECEIVER DISTRIBUTION CONTROL ORIOLE!!! So, I would argue that once we have everything tweaked to our liking and this thing rolls out(if it ever does) recruiting should fall into line.
In the mean time, test how to beat sims with your average at best players. keep pluggin away at the sims.
Season 1 beta it was almost impossible to get a d3 qb because all the d2 sims were on them. Human players saturated the field and overtook them by season 3. Your issue will be resolved over time. The engine issues wont. let these guys focus on the real problem.
