Updated on 2nd July 2021

I continue to develop this game based on the feedback on subreddit – for the gamers, not for the money!
V1.4.1: Fixed bug in match engine causing winning team to punt away instead of running down the clock.
V1.4.0: Extended season to 17 games. Introduced pool of developing college players. Option to start game in pre-season. Bug fixes.

V1.4.0 Detail:

Key Changes…

  • Regular season now 17 games. Comes into effect in new season.
  • Introduced new ‘World’ tab hosting hundred of college players who will develop (or not) over time. New cohorts introduced each season, with players representing college states and declaring at any stage through college. Snapshot of future draft quality seen from ‘World’ screen.
  • Start Date: You can now start season at point of Free Agency or on Draft Day. This works for custom rosters too, removing recently drafted players.

Other Changes:

  • ‘Schedule’ now moved on to team pages and you can now see AI team schedules here
  • Introduced ‘Messages’ section for future release.
  • Hall of Fame can now be filtered to User Team only.
  • Hiring a new scout will now update player scouting.
  • Tweaked player attribution for random rosters on startup
  • Tweaked AI free agency approach (should further reduce top quality players left unsigned)
  • Updated speed range/allocation by position…so no more super quick Centers! Small impact on player ratings may be seen
  • Added college to player cards on the career tab
  • Added a lot more names and weighted by real-life frequency (i.e. you’ll see more common names more regularly)
  • Pro Bowl selection criteria of OLine and Kickers improved
  • Small increase in frequency of top Kickers/Punters in draft
  • Improved logic at end of OT where time expires instead of FG kicked
