Just did a couple of test games and noticed that Interceptions are not being run back at all...at least of the 8 ints that I looked at, none had a return at all. There should be a return of at least some yardage on at least 1/3 of INT's, I would think. Having no returns at all is unrealistic.

Pretty sure Norbert said penalties, fatigue and run backs are not included in the Beta yet.

With the exception of penalties, those other things are in the game, but probable need to be tweaked.  You are correct in that I had mentioned earlier in one of the status posts that I still had to add those in, but turnover run backs and fatigue are in the engine.  I think I probably was a little too conservative on the INT run backs given the high number of run backs the 2.0 engine has.

Heres a couple from the PBP.. seems like the play just ends with the INT.

In some cases they will end with just the INT as when a player dives for the ball or catches the ball and goes down, and it won't always be at the spot where the QB was targeting.  Other cases they will be able to run the INT back.  It might just be that I have to tweak the chance of running it back higher.  I was seeing returns more frequently than what is being reported, so I'll have to check that.
