Every year I can never decide which rosters are the most accurate and legit. Does anybody have suggestions for which gamertag or group produces the best rosters?
As of right now I'm thinking of going with Fairdale Kings...
You're better off than I am. I have the game, but no xbox 360.
I couldn't pass up the $20 Amazon credit, and I knew I'd buy it eventually.
Amazon, in addition to the $20 credit, also had $.99 release day delivery.
Amazon Student Prime, ftw.
I love the shipping but UPS never delivers my shit on time in my apartment. I always get the we just missed you note even when I've been sitting in my apartment the entire goddam time.
The gaming tailgate has the best rosters. Just not sure when they come out. I bought my game last yast year 2 weeks after it came out, so hopefully by tomorrow or Thursday they will be done.
Not sure how to embed, but go to their website www.thegamingtailgate.com for more information.
EDIT: actually, there is a status report on the rosters. Fairdale Kings has 67/120 teams done which is the most on the list. Again, go to the website and click on rosters. (on top on right hand side)
luvtotha9s has very accurate rosters. Cam Gordon is a SS in 2012 right? It will be interesting to see if anyone makes the change and moves him to LB.
I'm looking forward to picking it up tonight.
In an earlier thread, icefins26 said that he usually gets a pretty good roster and then perfects UM details. Not sure what his gamer tag is, but he said he'd post once he had it ready.
This really needed a new thread. You know, to go along with the four that have already been started in the last 24 hours regarding the same game.
shut up, Scrooge
i've used the rosters coming out of operation sports.
check here for updates: http://www.operationsports.com/forums/ncaa-football-rosters/
Those guys are serious sports gamers and you should be able to find a great set of rosters.
Relax. There was not a thread posted about rosters. Having the rosters is a big deal to some, and imo, I feel it warrants it's own thread.
Give me a week..i promise mine will be solid MichiganMan24 (creativity is lacking in my family)
Maybe make this the "official" thread? I've only played 2 games so far and it's been very good. A lot better than I remember '10.
I downloaded Shakeandbake30 rosters for '11 and they are by far the most accurate, I don't know if he's done one yet because I haven't bought the game yet.
That is the best one I have used. I believe he also updates the roster weekly so at seasons end his rosters are pretty spot on. It's a lot of work to do.
Bigwy seems to be it for now until luvtothe9s comes out with his?
I didn't think anyone had a complete roster done yet
I started naming Michigan's players and it wouldn't let me enter "Russell" and "Cox" because it claims those names have profane text. Cox is somewhat understandable, but Russell? I hate EA Sports so much!
I didn't have any trouble with Russell though. Cox was blocked so I used Cax. Very weird feature they implemented this year
Well that ruins my usual practice of naming tsio players offensive things. Pryor was "Fucky McAsshole," Posey was "Anal Lesion," etc. Immature, yes. Entertaining, obviously.
enter those names that are flagged as innapropriate, if you disconnect from the internet while entering them. I think it is completely ridiculous to censor them, but that is a possible workaround.
I am betting some of them are trademarked names that EA is worried about getting sued over. Naming somebody Russell Athletic and getting a notice because they didn't pay for the naming rights is probably their legal department getting involved. I worked at a large company doing software and they had many issues like this come up. I bet you could find some other ones blocked like Nintendo, PlayStation, Sony, etc. Wonder if they have a published list.
And I wonder if Shittu, MgoBlog, and TomVH are censored like Scout does?
Edit: was xbox centric there since obviously EA has agreements with Nintendo and PS.
ones from operation sports, since I post there as well. The community rosters from there for the 360 include corrections, in addition to the players being named. I use one from there as my base set and than make my own edits from there. I have a case of OCD, in terms of trying to use as realistic of rosters as possible. It will be quite awhile before I actually start a "real" dynasty.
Still being worked on. I can already tell you that there are some tough decisions to make on who gets included in Michigan's roster.
This guy typically has the best ones but they take a little bit longer. His however fixes names, uniforms, equipment, positions, and eventually ratings.
I bought it again this year. Wasn't planning to because the last 3 years were pretty much the same plus Amazon wasn't giving out $20 credit for this year's version. Alas, the game credit popped up over the weekend and I caved in. Plan on putting that $20 towards Madden.
I can't break free of EA's grip. :(
Does anyone have a roster file available in the EA Locker for XBOX 360... I realize the full ones are not done, but I thought somebody on this board might have at least updated the Michigan roster.
Just Michigan or even B1G would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
According to http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/forums/content.php?2-Rosters the gamertag "gamingtailgate" for PS3 is all complete with Player Names (No Player Edits) and Coach Edits. I haven't checked the accuracy yet, but wanted to get it out there
Thanks for the info. Even if these rosters are a bit bogus, I want to start a dynasty tonight with some semblence of names to work with. I can change them from there... I appreciate the vine, yo.
How did they turn out?
and besides Troy's last name being "Wolfork" instead of Woolfolk, they look pretty close to me. I can't believe somebody imported roughly 10,000 names already.
I believe you are able to import teambuilder teams you do online so that may make things go much quicker.
Patrick morty is the gamertag. I'm not sure if they work online though. Looks pretty accurate.
Good one for 360 also complete
