Alright everyone,

Forenci and myself are going to be running an online dynasty on NCAA since it is the best new feature ever.

Our goal is to get 6 or 12 VERY dedicated people who will play their games, recruit, etc all in a timely manner. Most of it can be done without arranging with others, but when you do need to arrange stuff with other people, it would need to be done quickly. It would also be preferred if there was a way to always contact you (IRC, AIM, etc,) if needed.

We'd likely start soon after the game comes out, so you'd need to get it right around release. I imagine we would start around July 20th or so.

Here are the ground rules:

1. We'll be customizing a conference so everyone can have their favorite teams. As long as people don't disagree and try to take whatever they want, this should be fine. If needed, it will be dealt with effectively.

2. At this time, we have no plans for restricting recruiting, how you play your games, etc. It could change.

3. If you reply, you aren't guaranteed a spot by any means. It will be people we know will be around, who have done things like this before, etc. If you reply and say "I'll take Georgia," or something that 1. Assumes you are in and 2. Has you "calling" a team. You're out. That's just annoying.

4. I haven't talked to Forenci about difficulties and settings, but all slider would remain the same, and I imagine CPU difficulties would be the 2nd hardest, if not the absolute hardest. So, be prepared.

5. If you have suggestions on how to make this a better experience, feel free to PM (NFLDC or IRC) them to me and/or Forenci.

6. Please ask any questions. I'm sure I forgot a butt ton of information.

So.. is this the sign up thread? or just the information thread?

I'm definitely interested. you can contact me via AIM at djp4516 if you have any questions.

I can really be any team that you'd like me to be.

Looking at how it is done, 12 people could work pretty well. We could split 6 and 6 or 4, 4, and 4. Plus, I can customize non-conferences against each other.

You'd likely have a week to play two games/recruit twice or so. Depends on how it would work.

Okay, well, are we going to just pick any old school or are the prestige ratings going to be similar?

PS, I've played in the NCAA tournaments in the past so you know I'm good for it :P

As far as I know you can pick whatever team you feel like playing as. If two people want the same team I imagine we'll just find some way to figure out who gets who.

I just looked at some of the player ratings and they absolutely killed the Gamecocks. They rated Carlos Thomas a 90 and Captain Munnerlyn an 86. An 86? Are you kidding me? E Cook didnt even hit 90 and our TEs, the strength of this year's offense, are rated 83 (Cook) and 67 (Saunders). What a joke. Someone needs to be fired for giving these ratings. Go watch some football. Geez.

That being said, if the Gamecocks are my team...I can make it work. It does piss me off, though. haha.

Shane P. Hallam
07-04-2008, 08:14 PM
It will vary year to year since the games against people in the other division of your conference will change every year.

The absolute minimum amount of games:

vs. User: 5

vs. CPU: 3

You could have anywhere between 5-8 games against users or (as DG said,) 3-6 against CPU. This does not include Bowl Games.

Non-conference opponents would be the people in the other division, I would assume.

I need to grab that demo 2nite and give it a quick test run...Are all the controls at least the same? Seems like a dumb question but you never know with these new systems, they always want to change some button configurations, and I heard NCAA and Madden will be way off this year for some reason as far as the controls.

I think all they changed w/ controls is that the RB button isnt a throwing option anymore. I think it throws the ball away.

I believe that is correct. LB is now the fifth receiving option, which caused me to get sacked quite a few times in the demo, heh.

Yeah, I need to go into the game and test the conferences.

We'll be in either the Big 12, ACC, or SEC.

I'm going to be checking if their prestige's match up (so that both conferences are completely equal, if that makes sense,) and those will be the two we are in.

Yeah, I love the mobile QB in NCAA. I wont necessarily take off 10+ times per game but, it's nice to have some speed there. This is why if I'm the Gamecocks, I'll probably start Stephen Garcia. It's nice to have the option if there is nothing open downfield.

I was heavily considering WVU because of White, but the logical choice had to be Georgia. White's a Senior and hopefully Stafford stays an extra year... plus I needed a well built young team, with solid recruiting to make up for my bad play, haha.

And remember everyone, after one year, it will be what recruits you have! So everyone can heavily recruit that mobile QB and use him!

My goal is to sim two weeks of gametime in one week of actual play. That gives you about 3 days a week to play a game and a recruit. Against the CPU, I imagine it will be easy for most people. Against other users, you were chosen since you would be active, so MAKE SURE you are prepared for this.

IndyColtScout
07-10-2008, 01:46 PM
I didn't go thru the whole thread, but if no one picked Auburn you are missing out. Stats wise, Auburn is going to be one of the best teams in the game after year 1 of online dynasty. 45 out of 68 players on Auburn are either Freshman or Sophmore, and no player is rated under a 70. Burns is a sophmore QB who can run and throw. Stable of consistent RB's, WR's, and every position on D. Auburn is going to be a force in this game and if someone ends up doing really good in recruiting with Auburn watch out.

draftguru151
07-10-2008, 01:59 PM
They also only have 3 players ranked in the 90s and no one else very good (Ziemba and Blackmon got destroyed) and Burns is a 82 overall which is decent but nothing special. They're a decent team but they're not gonna be a top 12 team in talent. Their freshman class is NOWHERE near as good as some of the other teams.

M.O.T.H.
07-10-2008, 02:06 PM
I still cant get over the fact that Carlos Thomas is rated higher than Captain Munnerlyn. ughhhhhhh. Who's idea was that? An 86? Stewart is also rated higher than Cook apparently...awful ratings. I wonder how good Norwood will be when i move him to LB.

QB ratings don't matter. If you are good, you will make your QB play better. I lit people up w/ Tarvaris Jackson in Madden last year. NCAA plays just like Madden now so that should make things easier too.

Burns as a junior is going to be nasty, if he stays for a senior year I bet he is at least a 96, maybe 99.

As for the rest of the team, all I need is speed and solid ratings. Auburn has both. Since I have 0 guys rated below a 70, I should see a lot of my young guys improve in the off-season becoming solid 80's and leading to a lot of depth.

draftguru151
07-10-2008, 02:15 PM
That's nice and dandy (and mostly irrelevant) but a lot of other teams are going to have a lot of players rated much higher. I really doubt Burns gets anywhere near the high 90s.

Moth I just realized SCar is in the top 25 rankings that EA released.

Yeah they are, 22nd I believe. They still killed a lot of our players, though. This year they really messed up, I think Rodney Paulk is our impact player on defense also. Paulk is very good but, honestly. The team as a whole is pretty overrated but, our best players on defense got the short end of the stick w/ their player ratings.

edit...21 actually.

Have you played the game?

Burns starts at an 82. I know he will go up at least 3 points during the season. Then there is the off-season which has a training/camp mode for your players to get better. He will go up at least 2-3 more points there. By Burns junior year at the least ye will be an 88.

This goes for all players. They improve in season and also in off-season mode.

Since all the teams are announced, here is your last chance to CHANGE your team:


1. You may request to change your team by PMing me the new team you would like.

2. You may only request to change your team ONCE. If you send me the team you want, and they are open, you get them and you are stuck with them.

3. The teams are first come first serve. So, if you PM me now, you probably get your team. Or, you can wait until Tuesday, play with a few teams and try then. I'm leaving this open until we actually start the dynasty, so likely for a few days after the game comes out.

There are more than enough guys interested to get another NFLDC dyansty going. You guys should look into that...like Forenci said, there is a good 6+ guys or so.

Our Dynasty will have full rosters, likely from FK as I know he does EVERY team (including classics, just in case ;))


Anyway, We'll be starting promptly on the 22nd. So, make sure that you let me know your team changes or any complications and all of that in a timely fashion. I'll be PMing you next weekend for confirmation.

We can start a few days sooner if I can figure out how to hook my XBox to Live through my computer. I got close today, but just failed to get the DNS Server to work correctly. I used these instructions (http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80315). So, if anyone has advice, let me know.

Or if you can think if there is any type of business or place that would:

1. Rent me internet short-term

2. Place I can take my XBox that has internet and a TV to use

3. Any other solution.


I'd be willing to hear it :D

Hopefully you get that sorted out JBond, because I know I'd like to start as soon as we can.

In the few times I messed around after you helped me out, I figured out how to find out all the numbers for you to enter, as far as ip, and dns primary and secondary numbers...I clicked Start>Run then typed in cmd, when the black box comes up if you type in "ip config /all" a long box pulls up with both of the dns numbers to type in, I copied those numbers in the manual screen for dns numbers and it worked for me, not sure if yours would work that way or not but it's worth a try.

Gotcha. I have a Mac, so that changes things. But, I've used two different sources and come up with the same DNS #, and it still won't work. I get the IP to confirm, but not the DNS.

As for the 2 numbers you got, did you put the first as primary and second as secondary?

just hope you guys know about the roster glitches...IDK how it works with dynasty...but whoever is responsible for the rosters (I'm assuming JBond), make sure you do NOT EDIT THEM AT ALL before you start your dynasty...once you get into dynasty, you can edit them, but before that, keep them as is.

If you need a link on the glitches, let me know, but I've been reading up on them for the last hour, so I should know whats going on

Shane P. Hallam
07-13-2008, 10:02 PM
Well, yeah, a link would be nice. And once again, are we sure this won't be fixed before it is time?

Also, you can upload a roster before you start correct? If not, then we are stuck with all #s?

theres a patch on the way from what i hear, but the problems is when you start to edit the roster before the online dynasty is started some teams and players disappears, so the best thing to do is what canadian kid said, don't edit roster till the online dynasty is started, by the way anyone getting it on the midnight relase?? I don't work on tuesday so i'll be picking it up tomorrow night when i get off.

Yea, I was having that problem verifying my dns numbers, the primary and secondary, when you type cmd into 'run' on your computer and then type 'ip config /all' both dns numbers show up, it will give you a primary number and secondary number, I copied them as is and once I got those 2 I was good to go :)

I might go, I got the call today. I didnt even know there would be a midnight release, my EB just started doing that this year. I'll probably be too tired to play but, I'll probably get it. haha. I did the same w/ GTA 4.

Where I am isn't having a midnight release, but I'll go at 8 AM tomorrow.


And unfortunately LL, I have a Mac, so the instructions won't help me much :(

As for editing the rosters, can you begin the dynasty and then upload a whole roster (e.g. one downloaded from EA Locker?)

I'm not used to the controls so bear with me but see if this works;

Click on SpotLight
search for terminal
open terminal
type in command: dig
Your Primary and secondary DNS servers should be displayed at the bottom.

This is why PC's are superior, JBond! Haha.

Any luck getting the wireless adapter by the way?

At $100 and me not wanting to risk not being able to return it, I opted against buying it.

And thanks LL, that was my first method (as described in the link posted,) but it still failed. I'll try again tomorrow (or tonight,) I guess. I also talked to my landlord today and he is pretty pissed at the cable company, so hopefully it will def. be done and done well this time (apparently they installed a 3 meg internet for a whole apartment building).

I apologize for the heavy inconvenience guys. Though, maybe it will be good to get people practice.

Please try and test your connections if possible by playing online (looking at you BT!) and report back to me.

Hey everyone,

I uploaded the roster file we will be using to EA Locker. So, if you get on Live and want the names, just find my gamertag (TheP1414,) and click on it.

I'm "renting" a wireless adapter for now and sometimes it has worked. Sometimes it hasn't.

Thanks JBond.

I've been sick for a good two weeks so I passed out at 10 last night and didnt get up until 2, so i missed my chance to get the game yesterday. I'll ptobably go pick it up in a few minutes.

Shane P. Hallam
07-15-2008, 09:54 AM
We do have a problem.


Apparently some articles were misleading and thus you cannot place the teams in custom conferences in online dynasties. So, we can either be our teams and play less games against each other, or reassign teams for teams from two BCS Conferences.

Neither of which are fun, but oh well. Let me know your opinion

JBond what roster are we using?
like from who. . . DT Linder, pastapadre?

Shane P. Hallam
07-15-2008, 10:02 AM
Well, it would be all or nothing.

So, essentially, the break down right now is:

4 SEC/2 Big Ten/2 Big 12/2 Pac 10/1 Indy/1 ACC


So, we could:

1. Keep our teams, just play each other in non-conference

or

2. Herd people into conferences of 4-4-4 somehow.

or

3. Herd people into conferences of 6-6 and some get stuck with poop

I got it from Fairdale since he is independent now. At a quick glance, looks perfect.

07-15-2008, 10:04 AM
I vote against the Big 12 getting 6 teams because there isnt much depth.
I'll be down for 4-4-4 or 6-6 if I am in the SEC :)

Don't edit it at all, or teams disappear. The whole thing can be found here:
