NCAA Football 11 News Post


Russ Kiniry, Designer of NCAA Football 11 has posted a new blog discussing prospects. This is part 2 of a 3 part dynasty blog.

Quote:
"For the rest of this blog we are going to go over some of the new things we've done with the Prospects in Dynasty Mode. As you all know, the further you get in future years of Dynasty Mode the more the new Prospects coming into your game matter, so we had to ensure we did a better job this year in creating and ranking these Prospects.

As you many of you have already guessed, there is a new ratings spread in NCAA Football 11. You'll no longer see dozens of players at 99 OVR in this year's game when looking at the rosters we ship with. Hence, we had to ensure the new Prospects created in Dynasty Mode matched the new philosophy. The Prospects have been re-created... every single one of them. The reason being is we wanted to ensure that all positions in the game had its share of elite players, multiple types of players, and an even spread from top to bottom.

What classifies as an elite Prospect has changed from previous years with the new ratings spread. As you can imagine, you'll no longer see true freshman come into the game rated in the 90's OVR or even high 80's OVR. Only the top Prospects at any position this year will come in over an 80 OVR and depending on your school, he may or may not be able to start instantly."

Looks good - was hoping for some presentation type updates for Dynasty, but this will do for sure!

still reading the blog, but nice to see TCU's pro-combat uniform.

TCU's pro combats!

Looks like we'll see a lot of alternate jerseys this year!

Calling Blog 3 leads into The Under Armour All- American Game. Just seems like that is the next step.

God they're finally listening and applying. Blog three is Coaching Carosuel. Im sure some coaches are better recruiter then other and thats why there's a point system and thats why some school's that dont use fullbacks where on the recruits list because they run a different system.

Ok actually finished reading the end. 3 won't be about The All-American game. lol But it would be very easy to put in the game.

Awesome. I wasn't expecting this until next week. Thing's keep looking better and better for this game.

Was hoping for Coaching Carousel, but, this is really solid, too. This will help make Dynasties much more interesting in the long-term. Maybe the Carousel will be in the 3rd blog.... *fingers crossed*

Man, I hope you're right, that would be so awesome!

This has me excited.

I'm guessing Blog 3 will stick to recruiting - possibly coaching/staffs & we wont get bigger Dynasty news til E3. Albeit this news is important to dynasty as a whole, I feel there is much more they are holding back...

NICE!

After the Prospects were created and the ESPNU 150 list was filled out, we took a look at how each Prospect was ranked against each other. In years past the Prospects were always ranked by overall; meaning the "best" player was always ranked at the top of the list. Because of this, we had to have kickers, punters, and fullbacks overall ratings lowered to ensure they rarely showed up in the Top 100. To improve the fidelity of this list we've included position into the ranking formula.
This change sounds pretty simple, but it has a big impact. We can now weigh a position to be more or less valuable in the rankings formula. For example, last year's list would take an 80 OVR QB vs. an 81 OVR Kicker and rate the kicker higher. In this year's game we are able to keep the Kickers rating at an 81 overall, but his ranking will not even crack the ESPNU 150 because his position isn't as valued. Together, this change and the new ratings spread improved the Prospect rankings in the ESPNU 150; and we were still basing the list on overall within each position.

It's about time potential was factored in the game. Very excited to recruit in this years game.

What's great is Blog 3 will address some of the comments about the first blog: both about Kent State being in the Top 10 of our 5 Star Fullback (in the last blog's screen shots) and the points showing up in the Top Schools menu. We will take a look at the logic behind signing a Recruit and how the CPU will do it.
I hope this means coaching carosuel. *fingers crossed*

that would be my guess as well. I'm thinking there is something that'll be in dynasty mode but are waiting to announce(E3) and wont be in part 3. plus, there are likely smaller things here and there(hopefully schedule fixing and poll logic, etc..) that'll also likely not be part of this dynasty blog series.

PRO COMBATS stood out the most in this blog.

Good read.
 
# 20 huskerwr38 @ 05/20/10 05:38 PM
I wonder if a player ever doesn't reach their potential? For instance, if a player has the potential to be a great player but has lots of injuries, or just never plays cause the player above him is better, if the recruit just never reaches his full potential.
