I went ahead and picked up a D3 team just to see what the heck is going on, (had been intending on doing it anyways).  I don't agree with some of the things that were done, but my biggest issue thus far is that we can't even set DOWN AND DISTANCE??????????   What on God's green Earth would make you change it to where no one can set up offense or defense for down and distance?  If not by yardage, then at least put in the words Long, Medium and Short!  If a new coach is so ignorant that he can't figure that out, then I highly doubt he/she is smart enough to do much else on here!!  Oh wait, all they obviously need to be smart enough to do is click "purchase more seasons".  Huge FAIL!!!!!
I agree with that.  But an even worse problem is the 80% limit on play calling.  Why would you FORCE a coach to run 20% of the time when he wants to pass 100%.  Or FORCE him to run 20% of the time in his 2 minute offense?  That is just plain nuts!!!

Has anyone else had this problem? I created playbooks for all my GD teams based on how I wanted my teams to play. Now my D3 team has only the original playbooks, my custom playbooks are gone, AND I cannot import playbooks from my other worlds!

If the idea was to incentivize me to move up to D2, it's failed. If I have to re-create all my D3 playbooks, I'll just quit.

I am a new coach and I hate it more then any sim sports game I have played. Can not wait to get out of D-III. What this company did is just plan wrong. I can't even get a feel for the game to see if my style will work against the better coaches. Huge fail, if they did this to help new coaches then I am laughing how unclose to the truth this D-III product is. I feel like I will be even more behind the 8-ball moving up to D-II. If they wanted to dumb it down then the option should have been there and not  force everyone to do it. Ridiculous.

Thanks for all the input and the well wishes everyone :)

When we heard the idea for a tutorial we knew that it was a great idea, in fact we had been contemplating something similar for a long time. In response we constructed the new interface to guide you though the pages like a tutorial might, easing the pain points and creating a much easier flow to construct the game plan that is desired. I know that there will be a some veteran users will see this thread and immediately be off-put by the creation of a new interface. I also know that some of our longest tenured veterans have been longing for a interface that will allow them to control their team like they want. Our first goal in this change was to ease pain points, and this we have done well. The second was to give as much control while reducing the complexity, this we have also done quite well. While you are reading this thread you will think the sky is falling, that much is already clear. Just remember, at What If we are striving to create a game that will not only keep the veterans happy, but also update a game that will make it fun to play. Before you give up on this, try the new features. I actually think that you will like them. Perhaps that's just me being optimistic and enjoying playing this game again, but as a veteran who has been with a while, I implore you to give this new interface a try before you condemn the unknown.  




HAHAHA.

The sky already fell dude. Get over yourselves and admit that you don't care about customer. My bud plays the college basketball dynasty your company runs. Now that is a management teams that knows what its doing. Yours is a bunch of headless chickens.

Since you guys never look at support tickets anymore I'll just say this here. My game today, I have my chew clock offense gameplan in. My team is up 7-3 against a top 10 team and calls a timeout with a minute to go in the half, then comes back and throws an INT and now we are down 10-7 at halftime. Fix your engine!!! There is no reason with very conservative and run clock settings on should a team call a timeout when leading and at mid field. I mean he will probably blow me out in the 2nd half, but if I lose by less than a TD then you basically handed the game over to him.

My screens are all screwed up, and I cannot import game and practice plans that I know are working. Am I supposed to recreate the wheel for a new or existing team? Cannot even see the player individual practice settings.
