Re: Goal Line Blitz: football simulation RPG

Trout,

You guys are making yourselves look bad by calling out the other owner for not agreeing to a resim. The whole situation stinks, but as BJJ was saying, without anything to show that they were involved in causing this, ripping a playoff victory away from a team just isn't an option, especially (and this is basically the main reason that the other team is right in not accepting a resim) when you can't 100% eliminate internal sabotage (although this 99.9999999% unlikely) or user error by one of the GMs.

Duly noted, I'll be the ass then.

It's tough to say, but there are a few positives here. First and foremost, this "loophole" is now closer to being closed, so hopefully no one else suffers this fate.

Secondly, the character of some CPL members really got some daylight here (mine included I suppose. Suprise, I don't like being cheated). It's true that most of CPL is a wasteland, but in the coming seasons, more and more of CPL will be filled by our old AAA2 league-mates, who's character, by and large, is pretty solid.

Also Asheme and (and this is the one that surprised me) Jeff Garcia proved themselves to be decent. CPL isn't 100% devoid of decency...

I was going to post this on our forum somewhere, but for all the memeing and forum jackassery (nerd?) Garcia proved to be pretty stand up, and I was pretty shocked.

Re: Goal Line Blitz: football simulation RPG

why?

The game was clearly ****ed up by some external source, either a bug or dong hacker or something.

Re: Goal Line Blitz: football simulation RPG

I wouldn't be opposed to a resim if one were offered, I'm just anti asking for one. I agree with MEb on this one. We look like petty douches by repeatedly calling for one, and the fact the issue isn't 100% known makes it extremely unfair to rip a win from another team. I mean it ****ing sucks obv but we're going to dominate this league for years to come. We'll get over it. Or we'll quit if this **** keeps up.

No info in the thread (private forum) might change your mind a bit. Or maybe not.

Either way, the issue of a resim is closed now, so let's not focus our attentions there. Also, just a quick point, it's VERY unlikely that Dong did this, so as a team, please make sure no one says anything to slander them.

Possible, but very improbable. I've never seen contracts that size before on anyone who would have started the season at around level 16-17. Level 24 gear is $200K, so bonuses would have been the logical way to go to get them their gear.

Yeah I noticed I got a TON of snaps when I logged on, and immediately thought "did Cody get injured?" I played ****ing terribly, sporting the 8 QB rating, so I think we can blame the loss on me (well, on the software that made me play half the game!)
