Posted by futurekid6 on 3/2/2012 3:08:00 PM (view original):I'm new on here but have been reading ALOT and have gotten alot of good info on the boards. If you're hellbent on going after a recruit that has 3 SIM AI recruits in on him then you want to act ASAP like the others have mentioned. You can typically throw 3 CV's at them and that will generally knock off the sims if you do it early. I've actually done this 3 times and only once did I have a remaning SIM AI and even then it only took an additional CV to finally knock him off and have him become "green" to me and then when it opens up for signing you can throw the scholly at him and land him. I generally check my recruits every 6-9 hrs if possible just to make sure they're all still "green" leading up to signing day. If you're going to go all in on battling these sims you need to check your budget and see if you can afford to throw anywhere from 3-5 cv's at a certain player. If you get these recruits that are 1000+ miles away that can get very expensive since most campus visits are 1k+ anyway..
Question on knocking out SIM AI: let's say the recruiting ends on a Saturday, when is the right time to knockout SIM AI with campus visits so the recruit turns green? Do I wait til the end or should i do it after in the middle cycles like on a Wednesday or Thursday? And do simultaneously send the scholarship offer too? I guess my fear is that they turn green and then other SIM AI step in. All info is appreciated. Thanks!
Just to give you an example of why it's important to knock the SIM's off as early in the recruiting process, look at it this way.
As the guys mentioned above, when I did it Day 1 of recruiting, 3 CV's knocked off all 3 sims and I was in the lead all alone.
When I did the exact same thing on a different player on DAY 2, 3 CV's didn't knock ANY of them off, and only added me to the list as the 4th team the player was interested in.
Moral of the story, if you're going to go after a player SIMs are on, do it hard and do it EARLY.
