they probably just chose 25 to showcase. they added the Pistol Full House formation, and that alone could have 12-20 plays in it, so I doubt there are only 25 total new plays.

yeah...go to ea's homepage for ncaa football and in the bottom right corner you will see a pic that has TEAM BUILDER at the top. inside you see "select this as your base playbook".

why else do i need a "base playbook" unless i'm able to add and remove formations from it?

Because if you're creating a new team, you need to assign that team a playbook; that would be your "base" playbook. I definitely wouldn't imply that custom playbook is in.

well, in NCAA 11 Dynasty mode, you can pick a "base" defense in coach philosophy. could be just a wording thing.

I hope that custom playbooks does make it in though.

Then it would just be called your team playbook like it was in ncaa11.
I might be wrong, but I hope that I'm not. Either way, there is no way that custom playbooks don't make it in this year.

One of my 3 main things that would hinder my decision. Custom playbooks should be in especially after 120 ways to win. I want my own way to win.

25 isn't nearly enough. I hope they have custom playbooks.

I hope there are also new special teams plays. At least some reverse and fake-reverse returns. ST needs a lot more love than the offense and defense in this series.

These are just 25 that we are showing right now. There will be more new plays in the game. I do not have a number to share right now, but rest assured that there will be more than 25 new plays.

Gentlemen, I would like to point out that Pistol Full house is a formation.

Now before I get blasted by some people pointing out the South Carolina's Polecat formation was hidden in a certain set, I would like to make a counter point. THe polecat set is very limited in what one can do from it. A draw, bubble screens, and a few other basic plays. The Full House has been in use for a long time and was, at one point, a very popular offense.

Hey man wont be suprised if you cant answer this, but there wouldnt happen to be the swinging gate formation for extra points would there?

Asking anything about Special Teams is a big NO-NO

You must don't know that Special Teams has nothing to do with Authentic Football.

Can't believe you mentioned something about Special Teams.

Shame on you!!!


About the playbooks, EA still refuses to attach the playbooks to the Head Coach/Off-Def Coordinator as in real life instead of belonging just to that school in the game.

Wait, that would mean having a Coaching Carousel in order to do it this way.

One question!!!
How is the Defense going to stop more Offensive plays when you couldn't stop the Offense before the addition of these added plays?

The D got handled by an any rated Off-player with any play called or we had to bump the sliders, only to have Psychic defensive play.

Hope we're not going back to the '09 version that was all about the Offense.
