NCAA Football 14 News Post



With OS's official NCAA Rosters nearing completion (360 here, PS3 here), it seems pertinent our weekend poll question asks OS'ers how do you play your NCAA Football? Do you download named rosters, use the generic named rosters or were you a holdout of the old nameless numbers system?

Sound off by voting in our poll to your right on the frontpage and above you in the forums.

The first thing I do is implement generic names from the game.

Once the community rosters are finished I will implement them in a trial offline dynasty.

Once the college football season begins I will wait until official rosters are complete from the college media guides and beginning a genuine offline dynasty and complete as many seasons as I can.

Anyone have word on the patch for the gray face mask fiasco plaguing the PS3? Is EA aware of this?

Generic. After the fourth season all the names are generic anyway. Im about to finish my 2nd season as the WSU OC. So no need to restart a offline dynasty.

My vote was for real name rosters only but that is not entirely accurate. Prior to Ultimate Team in NCAA Football, I would use the numbers in dynasty mode until the wonderful folks here at OS had the real name rosters ready. Now, I will play UT until the real name rosters are ready.

I grab an OS roster that has real names on it and go from there.

Wait, people play the game with no names or auto generated ones? Lol

What's wrong with auto generated ones? After the 4th year they are all auto generated anyway.

I always start one dynasty right away with auto generated then wait for the community rosters to start my online dynasty with friends.

Real names. I have to play with real names. I will buy the game on day 1 and just not play (maybe practice) if I don't have a named roster. And I'll only play exhibition games or practice until I have a named roster. No dynasty without names.

OS Rosters ONLY!

It's amazing how much more enjoyable this game has been thanks to the OS roster makers. I used to name 90% of the players myself and it took forever. When I finally got online a few years back my first download was of course the community rosters from this site. Thanks again to everyone involved with this process you are GODS.

Well, technically the question doesn't refer to Dynasty or Exhibition. People are just implying "Dynasty only" for some reason. If people only play online head to head or only play exhibition or only play the season mode, then they aren't all generic after 4 seasons.

Anyway, I only play with named rosters. I don't even want to play the game without them anymore.

I use generic names because it would require me going through and naming them all myself as I don't have good enough internet access to make XBox Live worth it. It kinda sucks, but it gets the job done.

I am surprised that anyone on OS would not use named rosters.

I use real named rosters once they're released. Before that while playing around I just name everyone I can for Ole Miss since that's who I play as 90% of the time. I leave everyone else as numbers. It's actually less confusing for me to see them as numbers than real names, at least for the players who I know.

It's really not that big of a deal to some people. The only thing it does for me is make sorting easier. I haven't played NCAA for years but even then auto generating names worked just as well.

Sometimes I'd grab a roster if I remembered it was available but if my dynasty was already started by then I wouldn't. It was about 50/50 chances that I'd grab one for that year.

I don't really watch NCAA football, the only remote reason I'd want named rosters is the opportunity to recognize a few more names and maybe help get me more interested in Saturday football.

I've used auto-generated names since I started playing in 2005, and have bought it and done the same every year since.
 
# 17 cincy14fan @ 07/13/13 05:33 AM
As for the online league my friends and I start when the game comes out with start with just numbers (currently in season 3) so that means that when the roster of OS does come out we already are outside the four years usually.

As for my offline yes I use the OS rosters.
 
# 18 jwtucker710 @ 07/13/13 07:15 AM
Either way. Random generated names is what I start out with in my first Dynasty mode. I might go in and change a few players to their original names, but don't really worry about the rest of them. It's kind of fun to use generated names. After about a month, I will upload a roster from Roster Share with the NCAA current names and start another Dynasty.
 
# 19 kingsofthevalley @ 07/13/13 07:36 AM
I've always used auto generated names. Sometimes I'll buy those college football magazines and rename some of the players. Another thing I enjoy is creating/naming some of the high school draft players to old school NFL players and track them afterwards to see if they can actually make it from freshman all the way back to the NFL through the draft to Madden.

I only play with official, named NCAA rosters. I'm not starting my YouTube Dynasty series until the OS rosters come out.
