I have not read all of this, but katzphang88 and caesari are correct. I just lost two in a row to SIMs...CC game and 1st round PO game. In my case, its strictly the wishbone. It is dead, dead, dead, dead, and finally, its dead. There are no manipulations available at D1AA that will allow you to win consistently vs SIMS when using the wishbone exclusively. That in itself is just WRONG. Were there problems with 2.0? yes. Are there problems now? YES, and more so than with 2.0. IMO it is now worse than 2.0. It has potential, but apparently is not being worked on..which means, it will not reach that potential. I never played 1.0, and certainly wanted changes to 2.0. But this thing is a POS in many, many aspects. Is it the best available? probably. Will it keep me playing? Not sure. Giving me formations that are totally un-usable is a freaking joke. Especially when I've built a wishbone only team and only run the wishbone for 25+ seasons. Am I whining? maybe. I put in a ticket and am giving the developers data on how I've used the wishbone, in order to help them see where the problem is.
Anyone who never played 1.0 cannot sing the praises of 2.0. The same applies for anyone who did not play more than 3 or 4 seasons of 2.0. If all you know is the sky is "brown"....then you will never know that it could be blue, or white, or gray.
Lastly, I'd like to see the answer to tigepark's question also. :)
