  • what about the Adjust Lineup 53/53 Player counter. It's not working properly, it gives a miscount in the roster. Again, with the counter showing 53/53, doing a head count in the roster, there are 54. When going into either the weekly practice, or play the game, the cpu directs you to cut a player. OK, move a player, instead of counting correctly, 53/53, it will show 52/53. Now if I'm correct, 54-1=53, NOT, 54-1=52. This as is screws up on how a roster is setup. It's frustrating. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, fix this. How hard can this be?
  • Who/What's the new SS X-Factor?
  • One bug still unfixed - I'm playing Franchise mode as a TE, and I'm being put on special teams. The kick meter doesn't fully display on PAT/FG and doesn't display at all on punts, and the kicker always shanks it.
  • This is why that whole KO X Factor nonsense or whatever they call it annoys me. It is a stupid mode that no one asked for and it takes away from stuff they should be working on.

    Next year, you're not going to see improvements on Franchise because the people who could have been working on franchise instead has to work on this dumb thing.

    They would have to actually care about franchise first before we start seeing any drastic improvements sadly.
  • Add packers captain patches, I saw them wearing the captain patches this past Sunday.
