Ugh...so many sketchy things going on with this game right now. Beware completing Solo MUT challenges. I just played the one against Buffalo (2nd game of the "Prospect" tree), scored a TD to take the lead, then grabbed a pick 6 as time was expiring.

 

I finish the game, it shows the coin and pack reward...then takes me back to the menu and shows the challenge as not being completed, my coin total is the same, and the next challenge isn't unlocked. Fix your shit, EA.

I have had 3 disconnections from the EA servers in the last 5 days of playing this game. You can easily reconnect (albeit manually via button press) but your result won't matter. You'll receive no rewards at best and a loss at worst.

Has anybody experienced that weird field goal glitch again? I just had a 49 yarder that was shanked so bad it went out of bounds at the 17 yard line. I mean, the sliver on the kicking meter was pretty small, but I didn't think I was that off. And pulling it that much just seems ridiculous.

Yea, I had one go nearly backwards.

Ok, well that makes me feel a little better. I did have a 47 yarder after that that I made no problem. There was no wind in either situation. Just feels really random.

 

Also, fun fact: the Titans are the lowest rated team in the game (based on most recent roster), at a 72. That puts them below the Jags (73), Raiders (74) and Bucs (74). I love my hometown team...but I'm really not sure if I can subject myself to a year of the worst team in the game, haha. I might have to switch it up for the sake of my sanity.

Yeah, it would give me new opponents to play as well. I'm definitely thinking about it. A few of the Titans new players excite me (Mariota, Orakpo, Beckham-Green)...but they have so many holes that need fixing. And then I'd have to count on the young guys progressing properly as well. It's a tall order.

Any chance the lottery is next week?  I only ask because I am out of the country on vacation so if it is I will send my choices in early.

I would definitely advise you to send in your list before you leave. I can't swear when the lottery will be just yet. But that timeframe seems like a definite possibility. Several people have sent in their lists already.

I'm not even kidding but I was playing with the Jaguars while listening to Spotify on shuffle and "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World came on.

In the past we've waited for week 1 rosters.

I want to buy the game, but I'm so damn busy I think I'm going to sit out again this year.

Yeah, I don't see a reason to not wait for Week 1 rosters. There are still a lot of moves to be made between now and then. And it always helps rookies get more accurate ratings as well.

I would imagine we'll get the lottery sorted out before then. But right now, we'd be hurrying up to just wait anyway.

I do need a season count for Mog and Sprice though so I can figure out the lottery entries.

 

If you're unsure how many seasons were done for each year, you can reference the "Past Champions" section at the bottom of the first post of the thread.

Yay! I finally made a decision on my team list. I sent it to siradam, so now I can finally start getting the draft lottery pieced together without worrying about everybody elses top 5's subconsciously affecting mine. That's another reason I was being slow. Couldn't make up my own damn mind, haha. Such are the perils of being a fan of the worst team in the game. :lol:

Just took a good look over things tonight, and for those who haven't really glanced at the NFL schedule, they're about a week later than they were last year. Last year, Week 1 was on 9/7. This year, it's not until 9/13. As you can imagine, that's going to slow down 53 man rosters, which is going to slow down when we can get started.

 

Looking at last year's thread, it looks like the 53 man roster came out on 9/5. so I'd guess we can expect it around 9/11 this year.

 

Unless anybody sees a reason to move things any quicker, how about we say everybody's team list (and total seasons played count) is due by 9/5...and I'll try to have the lottery results posted by 9/7. That will let everybody know who their team is and give them a few days to practice with that team before we officially start up.

 

Any objections? Sorry for things being slower this year. I know everyone is anxious to get started. Blame the NFL! :lol:

I don't know why but I'm seriously thinking about using the Jaguars. I may need to visit my therapist about this.
