Hey guys, I had a few quick questions about practice minutes.  Appreciate the forums as they have been a huge help.

1.Is GD similar to HD in the fact that 20 minutes in one category is pretty much the "max" and you won't see any additional returns on anything more than 20 minutes in a category?

2. Is GD similar to HD in that 7 minutes or so will generally "hold" a players rating at that category?

3. How much practice time is typical for a formation?

4. How many formations is it feasible to practice and essentially run? Two, three? More, less?

Thanks in advance.

1. No. At 20 - 25 minutes, you see the best attribute gain per minute of practice, but it doesn't suddenly 'shut off' for greater practice times; you just see a smaller attribute gain per minute of practice.

2. Yes, 7 - 8 minutes of practice will keep an attribute steady.

3. Depends on the coach.  Some practice 10 minutes per formation, some 8, some none.

4. 2 offensive, 2 - 3 defensive, and special teams.

Thanks! What time are the recruiting cycles in GD?
11/25/2012 2:47 PM
Noon, 3 pm, and every 3 hours after that.

Thank you.

Any reason that the 3pm cycle hasn't gone through yet in Warner? Or am I missing something?

If recruiting started for you today, the first 24 hours is considered 1 cycle. This gives everyone a fair shot at recruiting and getting a jump on recruits from the start. You will get your first updates tomorrow at noon. Then every 3 hours will be a cycle.

ah, ok. Makes sense. A little too anxious to get going I guess, haha. Thanks.

Don't blow through all your money too early. Be patient.

And stay inside your 180 as much as possible.
