Mike -

It adjusted ratings.  In some cases, rather significantly from what I can tell.

This is from the OSFL forums.  It basically confirms what was stated at OS.


"There has been a lot of speculation lately about what EQ does so I’ve been doing some research to get to the facts. Thanks to Streater (via the lead AI programmer Shawn Lee), I was able to get some good information to share with you guys.

EQ really does one thing and one thing only. It takes the overall rating of a player and “squeezes” it toward a baseline (median) value of about 80. Here are some examples:

A 100 becomes a 90.

A 70 becomes a 75.

A 40 becomes a 60.

A 90 becomes an 85.

It DOES NOT make all the player ratings equal. One important thing worth noting is that it affects ALL the attributes for a player, not just things like consistency. So, physical attributes such as speed and agility are also affected. In math, there is the concept of standard deviation. Think of it like this, EQ makes the standard deviation (from 80) smaller. There still IS a deviation, it’s simply not as large. For everyone who has reported better gameplay experiences the answer is really quite simple. Since the discrepancy between good and bad ratings is smaller, you’ll see less bad animations, especially in the secondary. It’s really as simple as that. Play calling and game skill DO become more important because the ratings spread is smaller."


I am going to set up the league ASAP.  I have 2 questions first:

1.  Do you guys want to use PEQ?
2.  Do we have at least 12 guys?

Sure, use it...I feel bad for playing as the Patriots.  I've played them throughout my gaming life (life-long fan) and got pretty used to them sucking ass a few years back.  Now I feel bad since they're rated so well biggrin

And I don't know if we've got 12, but let's start a league and see what happens!

I'll still play and definately want PEQ, makes the game better from a "man the computer is stupid' standpoint.

I'll sign up  after church today.  

Can't wait to start.

Did any of you watch the Tennessee v. Florida game last night?  I was there, and it was the most exciting game I've seen in years!

Go Vols!

Hey LD:

Have you changed your mind about playing?  Is Comcast still giving you troubles when you try to play a game online?

Mike:

I really should try it again.  I was planning to play a few games with Devil to test it when he gets back.

Another potential issue is my vacation.  I will be gone for like 18 days  (combo vacation/business trip actually) during the CG Season... not good.

I have a bunch of people coming over early for the Vikings game tonight.    :wink:

Wednesday is out for me too.  LOST premiers on ABC.  I know, I am a geek, but I love Alias... so I figure I'll love LOST too.  JJ Abrahms and all.

Any other night I am open though.

I hate to do this to you guys, but I am pulling out of the league. My football interest has waned too fast this year. I think I watch too many preseason games...

Just not interested in playing NFL2K anymore, it was fun, had some good online games, but so many better games out and coming out that I am gonna play.

Sorry.

How many more do we need for the league?  You should post a reminder at GG that the league has started and see if anyone over there is interested.

Yeah den, I think I watched every single game in one form or another, and was playing several NFL2k games in that time frame. I think I overloaded my system...

I'm footballed out for a couple weeks...

I was originally interested, but the league took too long to get started up, and now I'm not interested. Sorry if I made anyone wait.

Thanks, I'll get you soon in burnout or some racing game

I may be retarded, but I can't seem to find a league named "gonegold". Any clue what I'm doing wrong?

EDIT: nevermind, I figured it out. I was trying to join a tourney instead of a season.

In other words, I'm IN!

4 more teams needed.  

I wish people would have notified us earlier that they were not playing, I could have made an 8 team league.  We have 11 on the check-in thread so I thought 12 was doable.

I am new to CG, but I would like to join this league.  I am TML's roommate so that is how I found out about it.  As you can tell from my SN, I would like to play as the Pack.  My gamer tag is Forsberg2Sakic21.
