Thats a good idea not to start until a patch comes out. A lot of bugs and glitches have been discovered over on Operation Sports, it's a little disheartening tbh.
Also this may be a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyways, I can go ahead and start a "franchise" if I want to without it interfering with this league right? I mean on this year's game you can be in a league like this one and then still have your own CC going? I just want to make sure before I think about starting my personal CC.
Yeah, my general opinion on EA games is that they are great at flash and glitz...things like graphics, smooth transitions, and even the core gameplay in most of their games is pretty solid. But their attention to detail has always been and continues to be complete shit. They routinely program basic fundamentals of the sport completely wrong and they often allow these huge glitches that cause the game to perform in unrealistic ways. You have to wonder sometimes if they're really that clueless, or if they just figure that their target audience is too dumb to notice.
