Finally got our Week 1 in the books, and I've been pulling a lot of overtime. I haven't been able to figure out any way to get highlights or still shots off my 360, so we'll just be looking at the box score. First though we'll look at the other scores of Week 1. For convenience sake, I'm just leaving them in the order the game put them in.
Conference Prestige Preseason Rankings Determined by Average Rank of the Conference Teams: (since the 2013 Preseason Poll NCAA included in the game is overriding the Strength of the Roster for the Top 25, this will be much more accurate at the bottom than the top, but still, I said I'd include this).Big Ten: 9.3SEC: 10.5ACC: 14.5Pac-12: 19.5Big XII: 48.2CUSA: 50.7Mountain West: 61.3MAC: 77.7Sun Belt: 94.8Six Flags: 95.3Out of curiosity, I decided to calculate the Average Rank of the Independents just to complete the table and it's 83.7. No real surprise as Texas is the only Power five Independent, and for the recruiting itself, the game adjusts to what each Independent Scheduled for that Grade. Now I know I promised the Preseason All-Americans and Heisman Watch, but apparently that's scripted in the game as well. As a Backup QB from Texas A&M is the 'leader' in the Heisman Watch, likely a Johnny Manziel stand in, and Tua's little brother is a Preseason All-American LB despite, you know, being a Quarterback. #Bonkers. Just regular programming flaws I suppose. If they'd have known we'd have to be playing the game this way the past six years they'd have probably included the pick a playoff format in Dynasty Options, *long sigh*. Which you can't say they've never had it before; it was on ancient NCAA Titles in the 90s I've only heard about. NCAA 06 was my first.
I'm going to kill two birds with one stone and list the teams in their Conference Outlook Order, so you can get the games predictions for how these Conferences are going to shake out at the same time.
Welcome to the world of esports. It might seem that has happened overnight, but this was decades in the making, and now esports are on the same stage as traditional sporting events, literally. For people who are new to it, you might think there is nothing that esports has in common with regular sporting events. But you might be surprised by how many similarities they actually have. From filling out arenas to bringing in serious numbers of viewers, esports has taken the successful model of traditional sports and applied it to the digital age.
Forward Gaming was founded in September 2018. In July 2019, the Dota 2 team of the organization qualified to The International 2019. So, while everyone else looks how to bet on Dota 2, The International, or prepare to play there, former Forward Gaming players face incredible difficulties.
So several years ago I made a FIFA 12 wishlist and put it on my personal Facebook, and since, I've thought about starting commenting (well, venting really) about the current state of sports video games I thought a logical first step might be taking a look at my only other semi-public attempt at this and having a look.
Welcome back to the "Why Not Do These?" series.
Well, it doesn't actually play out the way it sounds. Sonicfox is literally one of best players out there and he's broken tons of records, making tons of cash, and racked up a lot of awards, but he's not crushing everyone like I make it sound. His style is quite unique in his style, and it has earned him a living, through his large fanbase and elite sponsors.
