Official announcement here
We're proud to announce the release of Gridiron Dynasty 3.0 on October 16th. The new version of our college football simulation game is a major re-write and is full of significant improvements and additions.
This will be the open thread for any questions or concerns that you may have with the release of the upcoming game.
Here are a couple of questions that I have anticipated:
I’ve been testing the beta, and there still seems to be some issues with some of the engine, will those be fixed?
The beta testers have been a huge help in the deconstruction and reconstruction of the new engine, and they have seen it at a pretty rough state. Currently the beta engine is stable with some bugs that need to be fixed. All of the known bugs will be fixed before the game is released and any new bugs that arise will be dealt with in a timely manner. Also, the exact attribute distribution and current decision process is going through some thorough unit testing over the next couple of weeks to determine the most realistic feel for the game. The tweaks will be minor, but will account for some improved numbers.
Will my team’s coaching settings be carried over?
The coaching section has been overhauled; so much of the system is new. We have set up a way to import playbooks from a 2.0 game plans and practice plans will be the same. In game plans, you’ll be given a new slate to choose from any default playbooks or any that you imported. The formations section will have defaults as well, but you’ll be given the option to fine tune these how you see fit.
Will there still be randomness in the game engine?
You have to have some randomness to allow for the excitement of never knowing what happens. What we have done in the latest version is mitigated the true randomness of the plays and replaced it with a better probabilistic determination of what happens. What this means is that if you have a really good team, you are going to beat an inferior team the majority of the time.
Please feel free to ask any questions, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
