Some of the new Plays New Plays
EA has selected 25 new plays to highlight(there are more than 25 new plays in NCAA 12), They have all been released, they are:

Offense:

Pistol Full House HB Off Tackle – The Pistol Full House, aka the Diamond formation, was first unveiled last season by Oklahoma State and was later adopted by other teams across the country. A staple play of the three back pistol set is the HB Off Tackle play. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/189198_10150118356717280_90440037279_6368397_44661 93_n.jpg)
Shotgun Spread Flex Wk Y-Stick - Another spin on a staple play of the Air Raid offense that’s used by Houston, as well as others. Shotgun Spread Flex Wk Y Stick calls for the halfback to motion out of the backfield to the right. This motion puts him in a spot that allows the Y-Stick concept to develop. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14799.jpg)
Weak I Normal Y Over Fly Sweep – Oregon State’s Weak I Normal Fly Sweep has the TE aligned on the line of scrimmage to the split end side of the formation. This creates an u***lanced set to the left with extra blockers for the fly sweep. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/189826_10150121676632280_90440037279_6392694_42017 89_n.jpg)
Shotgun Twin TE Slot PA Slide – This is a play action boot pass that has two deep crossing receivers and one receiver, usually a TE, who slides under the line of scrimmage and in the flat. Oregon likes to use this play once they get near their opponent’s red zone. They’re usually successful at getting the ball to one of the crossing receivers for a big play. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/ShotgunTwinTESlotPASlide.jpg)
Pistol Spread RNS Switch Smash – Hawaii’s run and shoot offense can now be run from the Pistol formation. The traditional staples such as RNS Switch Smash can now be found in the new Pistol Spread formation. Hawaii and SMU’s playbook also features the run and shoot version of Pistol 4WR Trips. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14859.jpg)
Pistol Train Triple Option - Primarily used as a short yardage power set from the Pistol, the Train formation as it’s called by Nevada gives the offensive a variety of ways to attack the defense in short yardage situations. The Triple Option play is one such play that can be used to attack the defense. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/125485.jpg)
Shotgun Wild Tiger Trey Fight Song – Auburn’s offense features a wide variety of unique and imaginative plays. One of the more interesting plays in their offense is Shotgun Wild Tiger Trey Fight Song. In this play the left tackle aligns on the ball on the right side of the formation in a receiver position. The left tackle is used as a decoy to throw off the defensive recognition of the play. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14881.jpg)
I-Form Twin TE Badger Power - A staple of the Wisconsin power running game, I-Form Twin TE Badger Power is a play that combines elements of both a counter and power play. The Badgers like to send the wing tight end in motion to the weak side and at the snap he becomes the second “puller” on the play. Factor in the fullback and Wisconsin can get three lead blockers at the point of attack. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14901.jpg)
Shotgun Trio HB Wk PA Husker Y Post - Nebraska’s offense is known for generating big plays in the running game. To compliment their explosive rushing attack the Huskers will often use play action passes. Shotgun Trio HB Wk PA Husker Y Post is a play Nebraska uses with great success for getting the ball deep down the field to their tight end for a touchdown. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14910.jpg)
Shotgun Normal Flex Ark HB Wheel - Shotgun Normal Flex Ark HB Wheel should be a familiar play to the fans of Arkansas. This is the same play the Hogs used to score a touchdown on the third play of the game against Alabama last season. The concept known as “Shark” in the Arkansas terminology uses a shallow cross/dig combination in the middle of the field and a post/wheel combination on the outside. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14919.jpg)
Shotgun Wing Trips Wk Tiger Buck Sweep – Clemson’s new no-huddle shotgun based offense will strive for balance with the run and pass. A staple run play of the Tigers’ new offense figures to be Shotgun Wing Trips WK Tiger Buck Sweep. The play is an off shoot of the Wing-T Buck Sweep in which both guards pull and lead block for the ball carrier. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14935.jpg)
I-Form Twins UK Fade Smash – I-Form Twins UK Fade Smash is a unique way that Kentucky likes to run the smash concept. In the traditional smash concept the slot receiver runs a corner route. The Wildcats like to use a fade route which gets the slot receiver near the same deep area of the field as if he were running a corner route. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/17538.jpg)
Ace Big Twins Weak Flood – A three tiered flood concept, Ace Big Twins Weak Food can be used to attack a variety of defensive coverages. The post route is the first read in the progression and if open the ball should be thrown there. The deep out route by the slot receiver combined with the shallow cross route of the tight end creates a hi/lo vertical stretch on the defense. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14977.jpg)
Shotgun Trips Unbalanced Mizzou Jet – Shotgun Trips Unbalanced Mizzou Jet is a new addition to the Tigers high flying spread offense. The formation calls for the tight end to align on the line of scrimmage and places the split end on the left off the line of scrimmage. With three spread receivers combined with the halfback in the backfield, Missouri can get four blockers at the point of attack on the jet sweep. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/10518.jpg)
Shotgun Quads Trio Slot Pivot – Shotgun Quads Trio Slot Pivot is a play that’s designed to put a horizontal stretch in the underneath coverage of zone defenses. The inside receiver closest to the formation runs a shallow cross while the next receiver to his right runs a pivot route. Those two routes going in opposite directions creates a natural void in zones for the dig route that’s ran by the next receiver over in the formation. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/216590_10150158711592280_90440037279_6588685_75292 88_n.jpg)Defense:

Nickel Normal Cover 6 - New to NCAA Football 12, Cover 6 is a split field coverage concept that has the secondary playing Cover 2 on one side of the field and Cover 4 on the other side. Add 2 plus 4 and you get 6, thus the name Cover 6. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14769-1.jpg)
4-2-5 Over Thunder Zero Cop – A new addition to the 4-2-5 defensive playbook, Thunder Zero Cop is an aggressive pressure scheme that calls for both inside linebackers and the strong side safety to blitz. The unique aspect of the scheme is the term “Cop”, which tells the defensive end to play man coverage, usually on a tight end. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/189350_10150120858992280_90440037279_6386935_32080 81_n.jpg)
3-3-5 Okie NCAA Blitz 3 - The 3-3-5 Okie formation is new to NCAA Football 12. This formation allows teams that base out of the 3-3-5 defense to get into a more rational “3-4 Normal” look. A widely used scheme from this look is the NCAA Blitz 3 which is a three deep, three under fire zone scheme. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14853.jpg)
Quarters Normal Dbl Loop 3 - With the ever increasing popularity of spread style offenses in NCAA Football, we made the decision to add the Quarters Normal formation to the game. The Quarters normal formation features three down linemen, one linebacker, and seven defensive backs. DBL Loop 3 is an overload fire zone concept that’s used to bring pressure to the weak side of the offense. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14861.jpg)
Nickel 2-4-5 Slant Zone 2 - From a coverage standpoint is a standard 2 deep, 4 under fire zone pressure. The play calls for the two inside linebackers in the 2-4-5 formation to move to each side of the formation to show blitz. Combined with the pre-snap movement of the nickel cornerback, remaining linebackers, and both defensive tackles, the play gives the look of an “exotic” blitz scheme in which any combination of the players could blitz. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14886.jpg)
Nickel 2-4-5 Cover 3 Bluff – The complimentary play to the Nickel 2-4-5 Slant Zone 2, the Nickel 2-4-5 Cover 3 Bluff uses the exact same pre-snap movement by the linebackers, defensive tackles, and nickel cornerback. This scheme falls in line with what’s known as an “illusion” defense. The defense gives the offense the appearance of an all out blitz with the exotic look, but in reality it’s a basic 3 deep, 4 under zone coverage. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14459.jpg)
Dime 3-2-6 Spinner Buck Dog 1 – An aggressive blitz pressure scheme that’s used by teams such as LSU and Nebraska, Dime 3-2-6 Spinner Buck Dog 1 is a good play to use in passing situations. The play uses a six man pass rush which includes the right cornerback. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14922.jpg)
3-4 Predator Cover 2 Sink – The 3-4 Predator is a defensive set that calls for the right outside linebacker to align in a three point stance. This gives teams that base out of the 3-4 the ability to get into a 4-3 look. Cover 2 Sink has both corners getting depth on their zone drops in order to take away the natural void in Cover 2 between the safeties and cornerbacks. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14582.jpg)
4-2-5 Under Slide Rover Wk Dog – 4-2-5 Under Slide is a new defensive formation for NCAA Football 12. This defensive look from the 4-2-5 calls for the secondary to align in a two deep look with one cornerback aligned tight and the other aligned in a loose technique. Rover Wk Dog is a pressure scheme that allows the defense to rush four defenders at the weak side of the offense. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/14985.jpg)
‎4-2-5 Okie Across Bullets Dbl A – 4-2-5 Okie Across places the five defensive backs in the formation in a loose alignment of about 8 to 10 yards. In addition to the alignment of the defensive backs, the right defensive end aligns in a two point stance similar to that of an outside linebacker. Bullets
Dbl A sends both linebackers in the formation on blitzes in each A gap. Playart (http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s82/Solidice0/NCAA%2012%20pre-release/New%20plays%20-%20play%20art/12893.jpg)New/Updated Team Entrances and Traditions

I'd like to see some recruiting improvements but I like what they've shown so far.

I really loved the recruiting last year as I thought it was a challenge, but they are always room for improvements. I know alot of people are hoping for coaching carousel which they have kinda hinted at with some of the features.

I'd like there not to be a one hour limit on recruiting players. Sometimes I'll almost have a full class by the time I actually get to the offseason and I will end up wasting more hours a week than I actually use.

Also, I hate to say it because it will piss me off if it happens to me, but things would be a lot more interesting if some recruits wavered or switched teams on NSD like in real life.

The one thing I wanted is the improves pass rush. I like playing as the MLB and that would result in my dline never getting sacks, while on offence you get pressured probably 85% of the time. I am fine with all the other stuff, but that one thing always has pissed me off in this game.

Also wouldn't mind them fixing up some of the random over throws i would get. I would have my QB perfectly set in the pocket and sometime would overthrow a slant route by a good 10-15 yards

Thats a good point about having a max of one hour. If you are just trying to fill out the last few spots you could use the extra time on the last few recruit. I would rather see other things added to recruiting so I don't exoect that to be changed

NSD would be awesome, but in the end I just hope they make a few tweaks to recruiting and dont change anything to drastic. I liked the whole points system last year I really had to fight to land the stud recruits. Some people said it was hard, but nobody in real life signs 11 5* recruits. I would like a screen to look back on and see how everyone was rated in highscool once they get in college.

I'm def. down for an online dynasty this year. I didnt get into one last year...it would have been hard with my schedule. But I could work around some things this year. I have a buddy, who's really good, who would def. be interested in joining as well. He has plenty of free time, too. haha. I've been in a couple of good ones on here. They mostly die out, though. The one Shane ran was fun while it lasted, with our custom music and such.

360 of course.

I would love to be SCAR in one and I love the mid majors ones, too.

They need assistant coaches to be a part of the game. It's such a huge part of the college game that they have not implemented yet. I sent a copy of my article that I wrote for Operation Sports - http://www.operationsports.com/features/1091/dynasty-musings-ncaa-11-assistance-needed/ if you are interested - to EA Sports in January so hopefully they paid attention!

Custom playbooks was in back in the ps2 days, but the ones in it this year appear to be much more advanced. You can pick and choose which plays from what formation you want in. If you look at you can even rename your playbook.

I am soooooo stoked about the custom playbook features, I think that will be awesome because it is hard for me to find a playbook every year that has a mixture of everything I want to do.

Menardo and I always have a very competitive online dynasty, and that has been some of the most fun I have had with these games. Kind of addicting though. Would love to get into a really competitive OD with some of the guys on here.

05-06-2011, 12:36 PM
I'm really starting to get excited about this title early. The fact that they're finally implementing real zone coverage and changing up the plays at the point of contact is exciting a step forward for sure.

The visual improvements look great thus far too. I'm not real big on the presentation factor, so I suppose that one is a bit lost on me...I'll probably just end up skipping most of those after the first time or two anyway, unless I want to make it more cinematic for a big game or something of that nature.

The one thing I'm really interested in hearing about and hoping for some kind of change with is recruiting. Although many people liked the way it worked last year, I still felt like it was a complete grind and generally not worth the effort you put into it if you were playing off line. Don't get me wrong, building your team and competing for prospects is great, but spending 30+ minutes per week pitching the same thing over and over again and rolling the thing is just flat out boring to me. They need to find a way to give the overall system more depth without it just being a flat out grind. More pitches isn't the answer here, although it would be nice to see some things like system fit in the game and behave realistically. It's also kind of ******** that you stand on the same plane as a small school as you do with a program like USC. Schools like that aren't going to recruit the same way or with the same approach even.

The only other major gripe I have with the EA titles right now is physics. There's no reason that sports titles shouldn't behave realistically in that regard. The NCAA team has really put a lot of effort into their animation and have ended up putting out better ones than their internal competitors, but I really feel like some kind of physics system would put it over the top. Look at Back Breaker. The game was actually pretty terrible, but the hits look great and behave realistically. It also would have practical, in game applications. Ever played someone who puts a strong defensive back at DE? You can put a 160 pound CB at that spot and the game will treat it the exact same way as they would with a 300 pound DT if the stats are the same on paper...which is complete crap.

i wish they'd bring back the passing cone. that was by far my favorite thing EA has added in *years* to either game. no more sprinting right and throwing strikes back across the field. some ability to actually play DB realistically, but also to draw coverage off. mid play hot routes. thing was awesome.
Critically panned though. I didn't mind it much personally, as a concept at least. It wasn't the most intuitive thing in the world, though. If they could get it to the point where it was as easy to control as it is to actually scan the field when you're throwing, I would be down, but it took way to long to go through the progressions even if you were quick.

Honestly, I still don't see a football game that got down the concept of reading defenses as well as NFL Fever did.

Most definitely!

There are definitely things that I think would make this game so amazing, that they have yet to add. They could do sooo much with the recruiting to make the dynasty that much better. Just something small like Oregon being able to use their uniforms or their sponsors as a tool? just little stuff that each school has as a major recruiting tool.

I really wish you could create prospects on the online dynastys. I love creating prospects for my system in my personal dynasties.

I was actually really good at it. Felt fluid to me, since I always go through all my progression normally anyway. I know a lot of people that hated it, though. I remember I had a franchise with my dad, and he would always point the cone one way, and throw another. He could never grasp it.

Yeah, I just never liked it because it seemed like too much going on.

I try to make sure my passes are realistic anyways. I always try to keep from rolling one way and throwing all the way across the field. Seems like it leads to nothing but picks anyways so Ive always tried to not do that lol.

Things I would like to see EA do.

- Add euphoria animation engine
- no warp tackling
- make zone coverage usable
- Pass-Rushing needs to be more in depth/fluid...... maybe add a burst feature to D-lineman...original pass rush moves (example: make Haloti Ngata feel different to use compared to Dwight Freeny.. other than speed)
- Ability to lead receivers (NFL Fever)
- Make press coverage worth using with certain players.
- Maybe bring back hot streaks with players.... (example: when Ed Reed is on a hot streak give him ability to see his mans route... when Ray Lewis is on his, give him a higher percentage of hurting a player or forcing a fumble.)
-Improve the return game. Really think madden could make it feel smoother if they gave it two shits.
- FIX ******* LBER FORCE POWERS. ex. njx said the 500 foot vertical.. the interception over the middle when they are not even paying attention to the pass.
-bring back running styles.
-Make certain players more prone to penalties (cortland finnegan, flozell adams)
- Add a clutch feature (make Peyton harder to play with in the post season)


and that is just gameplay stuff.

ElectricEye

Supposedly, warp tackling and warp anything has been killed with fire. I'll believe it when I play it, personally. That's one thing they really need to get rid of hardcore though, any sort of warping.

My guess is they just felt it was too big of a weapon and there was no real way to provide a defensive counter to it without revamping the entire defensive half of the game, physics included. so they just said screw it, we won't let it be good for any more than a yard, if that.

Yeah...Luckily, physics should be coming in the next console generation, for better or worse(at least it's not complacency). EA already did it to very good results with their NHL game. Unfortunately, they also tried it with their NBA title and it was disastrously horrible and didn't end up getting released. Still, I am looking forward to it. What I'm not looking forward to is waiting for all the features to come back after stripping them away in favor of new gameplay changes, like with the first few PS3/360 titles they put out. Hopefully they just cut the **** and don't make that same mistake this time though.

NCAA destroyed Madden last year. First time i ever returned Madden. NCAA was outstanding. Myself and two buddies have gone years into our ACC dynasty. Great game that I can't wait for.

Somewhat off topic, but whether it be Madden or NCAA, my friends and i are looking for a same team dynasty mode that we can play through. What I mean is along the lines of the teamplay Madden that they did last year where one guy is QB/DL, on is RB/LB, etc. Even just playing CPU in this mode would be great. I'm hoping one evolves this same team gameplay to another level. It is great to play with buddies in this mode and go through a season...

EA has officially confirmed Custom Playbooks

Below is quotes from people who have played the game when the invited people from the community the past few months.


Let me say the obvious first... the footage we saw from the video was from the game. However, it was a bit dated... you can lookup some of the games that come across the bottom ticker to get an idea. As well, they are from two different dates, one from early March and I believe the other from early April.

That said, here are some of the facts, you can create as many as 15 offensive AND 15 defensive playbooks (though that number was just tossed out but the limit should be relatively high). You can have as many as 40 formations in your playbook with 377 total plays... goalline & special teams come with every playbook (can't remove), I think that's where the 377 comes from (ie 400-23 goalline/special teams plays). You start by choosing a base playbook, and then add and remove to your hearts extent from there. Any/all plays are available to pick from... I believe hidden formations (ex. Emory & Henry) come as a separate formation but not 100% on that.



To sum up my thoughts on it, from everything I saw and tested, they pretty much nailed everything I would have asked for in a Custom Playbooks integration.



I'll throw this out there because I know it will be asked. Are the custom playbooks available online/OD? Yes


Also, I found this to be pretty handy, but your Custom Playbooks will show up after the Z's and before the A's in the order at the team selection screen. I think this is handier than alphabetical order because it will group all of your custom playbooks back-to-back so you can easily go from one to the other (when you have defaulted one of your custom playbooks as your default playbook).


Yes you can tweak a base playbook like Oklahoma and save it as your own.

For me, I might like a base defense, but may want to add some of the new 4-2-5 plays into the mix, so that's where I will find it to be beneficial to me.

One of the cool features in Custom Playbooks is the ability to reorder the plays within that formation. The interface and process of doing so were very well done. So if you want your favorite three plays right there when you enter the formation when calling a play...you can.

Again, I just really hope they fixed the prospects ratings this year. Customizable coaches and coaching carousel is a nice addition to dynasty mode. I dont know if it's possible...but the prospect of being an offensive coord. for some team and getting a HC job offer from some other team, would be amazing.

edit...read all of that article. It's possible...and that sounds awesome. I enjoy coach carousel in games, especially the old College Hoops games.

Madden 2012 has a completely revamped Franchise mode (which is the equal to Dynasty in NCAA). I wonder if they are using that same logic for the revamped Madden in NCAA. Madden this year should be alot better, rosters have been expanded, their are player roles again, free agency is more realistic, scouting for the draft is improved...sorry I digress.

i just hope it's not ridiculous. i fear the way EA occasionally handled free agents in madden's past, with ridiculous releases and signings that made no sense. at least it's the ncaa team and not the madden team.

That was awful. When I was doing the NFL Superstar mode, nobody resigned free agents. When you looked at the Free Agency list during the year, there were about 15 99-rated guys just sitting there while my best linebacker was an 81 overall.

ROAD TO GLORY INFO

This year's mode is designed by former Auburn running back Alex Howell. He says his aim is to "create as much of my high school and college experience that I could through Road to Glory."

High School

•Explores your high school years more in depth, so you'll play a full senior season and gain recruiting points that are based on your stats
•After each game you'll pick three local schools of varying prestige that are interested in you
•Your recruiting board shows which schools you've picked and how far you are to earning a scholarship for each one. You can walk on to any school, but if you have a scholarship, you'll be able to transfer your recruiting points into XP for college
•You'll play and be recruited on both sides of the ball
•You can edit your HS senior season from seven to eleven games, and can import online browser-built Team Builder teams as your opponents. This lets you recreate your real-life high school team's schedule if you want
College

Coach's Trust

•You work your way up the depth chart by earning Coach's Trust Points, and even when you have enough points to catch the player who's higher than you on the chart, you can then only take that position by winning a Position Battle – which is a glorified practice session
•Non-starters will earn Trust Points through practices and occasions when you see the field during mop-up time, etc.
•Coach Trust Points extend to your on-the-field power. QBs won't be able to call audibles or hot routes until they have earned the coach's trust
•Earn enough points and you can have the chance to call plays from "Extra Plays" – an extended selection of plays than what the coach has already called. This is available in varying frequency during a game the more Trust Points you earn
•The development team is also working on improving the AI play calling
XP and the Upgrade Store

•XP you earn during your college career is spent on item packs in the Upgrade Store. These packs are built around groups of attributes for specific types of players. For example, the scat back pack boosts your acceleration and juke ability
•There are 600 item packs total, and they'll be six different ones available each week. Rarity, cost, and duration vary, but they will all be based around your position
•Upgrade Store items cannot be bought via micro-transactions
Misc.

•Calendar system scrapped, and the Road to Glory presentation is similar to the Dynasty Mode's menus
•The mode's menus, replays, montages, etc. will be centered around your player
•Practices are now 25 reps per practice
•Can save all your Road to Glory replays onto your NCAA browser page
•No more study sessions on your calendar

Some bad news no all american games or national signing day stuff.

Online Dynasty Mode


Commish can advance the week from the web – but only if you pay a one-time fee of $2.99 or 240 Microsoft Points
You can super-sim your games versus the CPU on the web -- including calling plays, modifying your depth chart, and more. You can also pause the game at any time, sim forward a quarter, etc. Again, however, this will cost you a one-time fee of $2.99 or 240 Microsoft Points.
Both of the above browser features can be bought in one Commissioner Pack for $6.99/560 MP, and the pack also includes the ability to be commish to up to five dynasties.

I'm super pumped that they are actually giving the RTG some love instead of just viewing it as a simple throw in.

http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/TexasCelebrate.jpg
Coaching Carousel, one of the most popular feature requests by the NCAA Football community over the last few years, finds itself as a major new feature in NCAA Football 12’s Dynasty Mode. In real life, college football programs make each new hire or promotion with the hopes that their new coaching staff will lead or return them to conference or national prominence. Now, gamers can replicate that experience as a head coach, offensive coordinator or defensive coordinator and work their way up the ranks or stay at one program and build a powerhouse.

Dynasty Mode begins with players able to use a new or existing coach. Along with the physical appearance edits – options include polo, shirt, suit, sweater vest, visor, and glasses - you can set your coach’s alma mater, offensive and defensive playbook, and tendencies on each side of the ball. Your alma mater and playbooks will help play a factor in your career advancement throughout the Carousel. Being an LSU alum may lead to you getting a job offer from the Tigers in a close field of candidates while having a similar playbook to the previous coach could give you an edge as it may help ease the transition to a new coaching staff.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/NCAA12NewCoach.png

After creating your coach, you begin your career as a FBS head or assistant coach. Each coaching position has its own set of Contract Goals based upon Program Prestige and contract length. Low prestige programs are much more forgiving and exhibit lower standards than high prestige programs. As you reach the upper echelon of college football, nine and ten win seasons become the norm and failure to reach that mark – in real life and in the game – can put a significant dent in your Job Security. Coordinators will need to excel on the field as well or they may find themselves on the Hot Seat. Winning games along with reaching statistical goals are imperative to move up the coaching ranks and to build your Coach Prestige. New coaches will begin with D-rated Prestige, while users who begin with existing coaches will inherit their Prestige.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/TCUTGTContract2.png

http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/TCUTGTContract1.png

As you progress through your coaching career, your goal is to establish and build Prestige and Job Security. While you may be considered a prestigious coach (perhaps you have won conference titles in the past), you must continue to win over the fans and athletic director each season to stay in a ‘safe’ Job Security range by completing your contract goals. Coach prestige impacts player progression and a few other aspects. However, this does not mean that players on a team with an A+ Head Coach are going to have over the top progression. Firings can come mid-contract, so don’t feel like you are guaranteed the entire life of your contract to prove yourself.

If you begin your coaching career as a coordinator, you can SuperSim play on the other side of the ball or watch the action. In addition to your on-field duties, you also have full responsibilities in Recruiting. If you are a coordinator, do you build up your side of the ball for increased success and more job opportunities? Should the other side of the ball struggle, losses may rack up and hurt your Job Security & Prestige.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/USCCoach.jpg

Throughout the season you can monitor Job Security for all head coaches and coordinators to see who is on the Hot Seat and who is safe. In addition, cumulative win-loss records as well as accomplishments are tracked for all current coaches throughout the length of the Dynasty. Among the info tracked are win-loss record for career and at school, conference record, record vs. Top 25 & Rivals, Heisman Trophy winners, All-Americans, average recruiting rank, longest win streak, and more.

Once you hit the off-season, the action picks up with the Coaching Carousel. Behind the scenes, it begins with schools that are very pleased with the performance of their coaches by rewarding and re-signing them to new contracts. Next, schools will begin to hire or promote coaches to replace those who have been fired, released, retired, or have left for a new job.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/NCAA12CarouselResign.png

Schools will then make their hiring process to fill open positions. Under the Now Hiring tab, users can view the previous job filled, the current school hiring, and the next school about to make a potentially program-defining hire. For the school currently hiring and about to hire, Top and Rumored Candidates are shown, respectfully. However, schools do not always hire someone shown on this list, keeping users guessing on what each program may do.

Unexpected Jobs are those opened up by those coaches who leave their job suddenly to take a position elsewhere. The Filled Positions tab gives a recap on the moves made by each school to let users recap the action of the Coaching Carousel.

Users can go through the Carousel one move at a time to track coach movement just by pressing A (360)/X (PS3) or they can skip to their contract offers (X/Square). If there are no job offers, this will simulate through the entire Carousel.

Should you find yourself on the Hot Seat, offers from other schools become very intriguing. Can you turn things around the following season or do you risk being fired and having to work your way back up the ranks? When you get a job offer, you can do two things to scout the team you may be moving to. You can view the entire roster of that school and you can view the details of the contract being be offered by the school.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/NCAA12ContractGoals.png

The coaches for all teams in-game are generic, but can be edited to allow you to customize your competition.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/NCAA12EditCoach.png

If a user wishes to play under the traditional Dynasty format, they can turn off Coach Contracts when creating their Dynasty.

In terms of presentation, cutscenes will show your coach interacting with his players, officials, roaming the sidelines, celebrating, and more.


Other Dynasty Mode Improvements

Within Dynasty Mode, a new Pipeline States screen helps users breakdown their roster to determine which states they currently have designated as Pipelines and also any states they may be in danger of losing in the following season should they not sign a player from that state.

In addition, when you are viewing the list of all recruits, each player has the logos of his Top 3 school choices next to his name and vital info. This makes finding players who have you listed in their Top 3 much easier than it has been in the past.

Dynamic Attendance helps differentiate power programs from lower-tier programs as you can go from playing in front of a packed house at Michigan to a desolate stadium at Tulane or Akron. (In Play Now games, stadiums will be at 100% capacity.)


Fully Customizable Conferences

After a long year-plus of rumored and eventual conference realignment, NCAA Football 12 features Fully Customizable Conferences. Each conference must have a minimum of four teams and can have a maximum of 16 teams, except for Independents which can have a minimum of one team and a maximum of 32. You may re-align conferences, but cannot delete or create entirely new conferences. Divisional names can be edited (goodbye Leaders & Legends), but not existing conference names or logos. TeamBuilder squads can be swapped in, though no teams can be removed or added meaning that users must stay at 120 FBS programs in their Dynasty.

Conference Rules

Schedule Type: Protected or Unprotected Rivals – Helps you protect certain cross-divisional match-ups so they occur within each season of the Dynasty.

Night Games in November: Allows users to set whether or not conference games will be played at night in November.

Weekday Games: Allows users to set which weekdays conference games can occur.

Start Conference Games: Select which week of the season conference match-ups will start being played.

Location for Championship Game: Select the location for the Conference Championship Game (if applicable) amongst any stadium in the game.

Division Name 1 & 2: Name (or re-name) any division in the game.

Protected Rivalries: Set the protected cross-divisional match-ups that will be played each season of the Dynasty. Each team can have one protected match-up.

BCS Bowls

The BCS National Championship Game is locked with BCS #1 vs. BCS #2.

Up to eight Automatic Qualifier slots (amongst Fiesta, Orange, Rose, & Sugar Bowls) can be filled with any of the conference championship winners (not just current AQ schools) or any number of these slots can be open to ‘at large’ consideration.


Coaching Carousel + Fully Customizable Conference + Online Dynasty = Ultimate Competitiveness

Coaching Carousel not only gives users a new Dynasty mode experience – it can redefine the Online Dynasty experience.

Online Dynasty (OD) Commissioners can set the maximum Prestige level for teams users can select at the start of the OD. Members can then all start at the same Prestige job as they work to move up the ranks.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/AuburnCoach.jpg

With the Fully Customizable Conferences feature, Online Dynasty Commissioners can arrange all OD members into their own conference to help make it become more of a challenge. For example, in a 12-member Online Dynasty (with all members in the same conference), there will be a conference schedule with plenty of Human vs. Human games. This will make the challenge of moving up the coaching ladder that much more difficult. With the competitiveness that already exists in Online Dynasties, no users will want to be the first coach to be fired as they will have to hear about it for a long time.

Conferences can be customized after each season meaning that people joining an OD a season or more in aren't restricted to fit within a set criteria of teams to match their fellow OD members. For example, if after two seasons of an SEC dynasty, you join and want to be Florida State, you can do so and then join the rest of the SEC.

The Protected Rivalries feature allows Commissioners to establish league rivalries amongst members by ensuring they play every season. When two coordinators play each other in an Online Dynasty, they will play in a basic head-to-head game, calling plays and playing out each side of the ball.

If each OD member creates a new coach, the Alma Mater tab could be construed as the program where they wish to ultimately become Head Coach, basically 'Favorite Team'. With the possibility of another OD member reaching that position first, competitiveness in Online Dynasties will reach a new level.

In the offseason, OD members can go through the Coaching Carousel together in a matter of just a few minutes. Will you get the first big job offer or will your rival get the benefit of being the first at a six-star Prestige program?

With many Online Dynasties featuring members who have played against each other for years, Custom Playbooks will allow users to develop the perfect playbook to counter the strengths and exploit the weaknesses of their competition.

Coaching Carousel, Fully Customizable Conferences, & Custom Playbooks all will play a huge role in changing NCAA Football and they will also change the dynamics of Online Dynasties.


http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/images/NCAA12/TCUCelebrate.jpg


Conclusion

Coaching Carousel and Fully Customizable Conferences will change the way users play Dynasty Mode and Online Dynasty. Will you stick with the first school that gives you a job and build them into a national power? Or will you work to become coach of an established six-star Prestige program? With all of the new game features, Dynasty and Online Dynasty modes will bring new dynamics and challenges to users. These are the major new additions and features coming to Dynasty Mode, but there's additional feature(s) and options yet to come to enhance the Dynasty & Online Dynasty experience.

Customizing conf is something thats gonna add a lot to the dynasty. I can move TCU to the big east after year 1. Also if things are getting a little stale in year 5 or 6 I can shake things up. Since I do 12 team builders teams in my dynasty I can use it for that a little easier then last year. Being able to add up to 16 teams is cool. I'm not gonna use it right off the bat, but I might down the road.

For OD you could move all the user teams to away from a conf and have more flexible over there schedules.

So exactly, what is the deal with FCS teams? I've heard a lot of different things about them.

I actually read an article by what I'm assuming was a developer talking about new features and the conference creator caught my eye. He said you would have the ability to do whatever you want. You could even make PORTLAND STATE a protected rival of Auburn meaning they would play each other each season without fail.

Did he leak some info or was he just illustrating what crazy combinations you could come up with. I definitely got excited but seeing as no info on FBS teams has come up, my hopes died down a little lol

I'm sorry I don't have a link, but it wasn't too long ago I was reading the article.

1-AA teams are not in the game, but like last year you can download/make them on teambuilder.

You can customize conf. this year and have anywhere between 4-16 teams. You can protect rivals, but you can't make new one's. You edit a few things like divison names, champ game locations. You can also edit the bcs bowl tie in's.

So exactly, what is the deal with FCS teams? I've heard a lot of different things about them.

I'm with you I like never download teambuilder teams that are a 6* unless its something really unique like the WWF one I found last year.

On one of the team builder screens you could see something that says "teambuilder roster share". Nobody exactly knows what that is, but it could be something like allowing you to edit team builders rosters.

I haven't purchased an NCAA Football Game since 2009. In the more recent years, have they fixed the problem where the game does not like you to have an undefeated season? I could be 7-0 with FSU and then I would play a team like New Mexico State. That would be the hardest game of the season. New Mexico State's linebackers would suddenly become high jumpers and intercept loft passes. And my running back, who averages 150 yards per game, suddenly gets stopped at the line every time.

I think you're alone there. Once you get it down, Heisman becomes a cake walk in every NCAA game. And back in the 09 days, all you had to do was run tosses and options. You'd get like 50 yard gains all the time. The super LB with the 50 inch vert, that has remained over the years, for the most part. But still...NCAA isnt that difficult at all. In all of our online dynasties, no one would lose to the cpu. And if you're a spread offense kind of guy or have a fast QB. You can blow out any cpu controlled team. Plus, the middle of the field is still way too wide open against the cpu in the passing game.

EA Sports released the team rankings (http://traditionsportsonline.com/ncaa-12-team-ratings-revealed) for next year. Just a few thoughts...

First, as a fan of UCF, I think they are a little low. They finished last season ranked around 20th. Except for a defensive end, they didn't lose too much, so I think 30th is a little low.

Oregon is rated lower than Stanford and LSU. Didn't Oregon play in the National Championship game last year? Don't they return their QB and RB and a bunch more? Didn't Stanford lose to Oregon last year and have their coach leave? And isn't Jordan Jefferson still the QB at LSU. Oregon should be no lower than 3.

Ohio State is ranked 6th. I guess Pryor will still be in the game and it doesn't account for Tressel leaving. The Buckeyes should win 8-10 games next season. But they are not 6th.

The guys at EA Sports must not have realized that Cam Newton was the entire team for Auburn last year. They rank them 12th in the game. 8 wins is about the best I see Auburn doing. That is not 12th best in the nation.

Michigan at 33? With a B+ defense? Come on. They might be better this year. But I still think 7-5 is where they end up. They should be about 10 spots lower.

The demo is solid stuff. I really didn't see much of the gameplay improvements they talked about(besides a few diving catch attempts), but the visuals are improved in general and the game runs a little smoother. I was airing it because of the 2 minute quarters though and really didn't get much in the way of YAC, so I'll have to try it again and pound it a little bit more of the new stuff.

That's the one problem with NCAA. Sliders can fix psychic DBs (which I've read is occurring again in man coverage). No amount of slider tweaking can fix ******** CPU play calling.

Something thats major is the demo is from the April build and not from the final retail build. They have to do that bc it takes a while for the demo to get approved.

Lattimore a 95 and Alshon a 96. siick.

That 96 speed is still too high for Lattimore, though. Dude is certainly got speed, but he's not that fast.

Other notables:

Garcia at 88.

No Tanner Mcevoy at QB....ugh. Hopefully he's at WR with good QB skills. He is playing QB after all.

Only 92 speed for Ace Sanders? Errr what?

Damiere Byrd's speed? I dont even know which of WRs he is, but the speed is way too low, if he's one of them. He runs in the 4.2s/4.3's.

just some little things from the vids in dynasty that i watched....

- i really like the new recruiting board set up where you can see how interested the player is (in a percentage) along with his top 3 teams he is interested in (instead of hitting Y or triangle on PS3)

- the actual recruiting looks like it hasnt changed much. this is disappointing for me, because i feel that the recruiting process takes up too much time and becomes rather dull after a while

Haven't purchased NCAA since '06. I still think there's not a football game better than NCAA 2004 (Carson Palmer cover). ******* perfect game.

Really looking forward to 12.

They was suppose to add a few minor things like jerseys and stadiums but getting any info from it has been impossible. So I guess it means they are very minor adds.

I can't wait for some OD action... Going to keep on conference together or do custom conferences?

Tennessee's roster is atrocious. Can't wait to get a custom one.

UMs is fairly bad too. Ray Ray Armstrong being the best safety in the game is pretty funny though.

Over half of UT's 2012 recruiting class isn't even on that roster.

You could always create a few if the roster is not full or just edit people as they usually have a few walk ons on the roster

As a rule, I find the rosters to generally be ****. I'm not even into the recruiting scene at all, but every single year big name guys/guys expected to make an impact get left off the official rosters for no reason at all. Luckily, Operation Sports usually corrects the entire thing fairly quickly, but that combined with how awful the tuners were for incoming recruits last year really gave the game a slow start despite how good it was.

I REALLY wish they had some kind of comprehensive roster editor for the computer, so we could correct these kind of things in an efficient way. Some kind of recruiting class editor would be even more amazing.

Is it just me or does the demo look terrible (graphically) for this game? Will the actual game be better?

I really want to like NCAA more than Madden because there are features in it that I like (AI sliders for example...) and really want, but quite frankly I've never liked the "QB 9" or "ROLB 77" stuff.

nah I agree, i assume it's just because its a demo but i dont know why it would be like that

ncaa 11 looked better so it would be very strange for them to regress

and the default rosters always suck, generally on launch day someone has a good roster with real names and better overalls

Burfict is a 87 in this like wtf

The names aren't a problem.

Graphics might be. I personally think it looks better, but it likely isn't going to be any different at this point. Game was more than likely ready to ship by the time that was put out. They changed some lighting and grass textures around, might take some getting used to for some.

You can change a lot by using low resolution textures (heavy compression for a demo) and stuff. Turn off a few settings and whatnot, but I tend to agree that this will probably be as good as the package deal.

I think they said they stopped working on the demo in April (takes a long time to get approved or something) so some stuff could change.

Haven't really noticed the graphics either though.

The demo didn't impress me any more than NCAA 11 did, other than the zone coverage. Feels like the exact same game. I can't even begin to state the staleness of the commentary of the game. It really does detract from what would otherwise be very crisp presentation.

Yeah, the roster names arent a problem anymore, if you're connected to Live or PSN. You can find fully named rosters. No one here really plays with the default "numbers only" names. We dont even start online dynasties until the named rosters are set. So it's all good there.

As for the graphics...I think the grass/field turf looks absoultely awful this year. Maybe it's because I'm playing on a 1080p tv, but the field surface looks like a blurry, low res mess. Dont know what is going on there. Even the videos georgiafan posted, show the grass looking like crap. I cant be the only one that sees this. haha. The game is still bound to be top notch, however. I cant wait for it.

The commentary is pretty bland. I wasn't expecting anything else though, to be honest with you. It's probably never going to be anything special in any sports game, but it's nice to have at the very least.

totally agree on the commentary. i can't remember the last time i didn't mute the games.
NCAA 2004.

It's sad because that's one of the things I used to look forward to with NCAA Football. The commentary actually was a huge positive for the game. It usually detracts from games (e.g. the Madden crew recently).

I really think I enjoyed the game more after I played the demo a few more times. I play it on a 21.5 inch 1080p monitor which I play other games on as well (PC ones). I definitely think things look low resolution and they shouldn't at that size. I kind of fear what it would look like on a big screen TV.

The collision system is both very cool and very weird. It doesn't seem to factor secondary hits quite the way it should. If a second hit occurs, the first hit (if it is still in progress) seems to be ignored and the motion is entirely dictated by the second hit.

Say a LB tries to tackle a RB and a S comes in for a kill shot, it's almost as if the linebacker lets go of the player. It doesn't happen often but something weird happens when they try to resolve multiple collisions.

Football games still haven't figured out how to handle multiple collisions. Probably has a lot to do with EA having a monopoly on the sport for gaming.
