Both the coaching 101 and players guide can be found under the HELP tab on coaching screens. I was not referring to any guides or help sections found in the forums. I am not sure who wrote them or why, nor was I being critical of coaches' attempts to make things clearer for other coaches (I always appreciated all the help I was able to get from other coaches while learning). With that said, I absolutely think WIS is responsible for updating these pages with any updates they make to the game. This is not a free site. A game guide is needed. Updated info about the game is needed. Dated info about the game provided as help is unacceptable. I should not have to learn how to set the depth chart correctly by trial and error. My time is valuable as is every other coaches'. If we waste time searching for answers about things like setting the depth chart we get aggravated.
The purpose of the update was to make things easier to understand. Why is it now harder for coaches with experience to understand? This is the last season on my account so I won't complain too much, but if I can't even set my depth chart without searching through dated help sections and browsing the forums which may or may not give me objective and up to date answers, something is wrong.
It is really the same old story I guess. Some coaches seem able to deal with it and enjoy the game regardless while others get frustrated and leave. I suppose a third subset fall somewhere in between and complain but still play. I don't want to be included in the third so I am leaving when my last season is up. I would however like to set my depth chart in the meantime and why the heck is there a nonintuitive system in place based on the order of the players found in the depth chart instead of depth charts based on actual positions?!?!?!
I just look at the formation I'm interested in. For example, the DL for the 4 - 3 goes like:
DL1 DL3 DL4 DL2
So, DL1 and DL2 are your DEs and DL3 and DL4 are the DTs. If anyone subs out, everyone else moves up a spot until the guy recovers enough to come back in (where he goes to his original position). So once your guys start subbing out, things are pretty much a crapshoot as to how to get players to go into their optimal position.
However, this doesn't excuse WIS from not providing the information in an easy to find manner.
