Few things things. Of course this happens when ND has unproven qbs. Going to have a 77 rated player (who knows if the game will have real players/teams). Next, here’s my money! Sorry work, sorry family.

 

It should have real players, that was the whole point of the image licensing.

This would make me want to get a new system. Haven’t since the last NCAA came out.

 

Exactly my thoughts. Just in case they get sued again and they never produce anything again. At least it will be on a pretty good system

I will be curious about a few things:

 

1) When will it come out? It seems to be a 2022 release

2) Will only some schools be licensed and others not?

3) Will they be able to upload "accurate" rosters of each team? This was big on the last few games; "accurate" roster files were ready on the first day.

4) How will they upgrade the recruiting process in the game? I love that part of the game, but it is now almost 8 years old.

Just scanning the article quickly. They just started talking about a year ago to get it back up. Some kinks need to be worked out. So more likely 2022 as you said. Also, CLC licensing as someone mentioned. So, they have about 100 FBS schools that will be on. ND I don’t think is in that group...Also, they are in belief that a new rule will be passed where kids can profit off their name in college. This, allowing them to have updated rosters and to be exact. We shall see. Just don’t let O’Bannon and some kicker from ASU near the damn game.

Looks like ND said no for the time being. LIC(sp) rules. Apparently waiting for the new rules to see if players come profit from there names. I’m going to be one pissed amigo if Swarbrick doesn’t alllow ND to be on this game on a new platform.

I’m not...he’s advocating for our players.

I get that. It is my all time favorite game and for it to be on a new platform with the graphics, recruiting, etc. it will really suck to not play with ND. I guess North Texas football here I come.

Honestly, I've thought this the entire time. EA should build a game that has the colleges, but make all the players exactly the same attributes. Then, make the player changes open source and allow users to import attributes that they build themselves or that others build in open source forums. Then, EA is off the hook for liability.

Will that make it easier for people to not buy each year's version and just update the players for free each year?

No, because you were able to update rosters in the earlier games as well. They are still modding 2014 with up to date rosters.

Right. I think the only thing it would affect would be if they introduced something newer to the game. Say, training regiments. What if the game made you actually have to take courses haha. Well not actually take course but made it where you had to attend class to stay eligible. Those SEC schools would suffer.

Yeah, or even the addition of better graphics, better moves, a better AI algorithm...new songs, cutaways, etc. They could get away with bland rosters. Or, to give it a hint of realism, they could give the team an overall score that was generally applied across the players. Like Bama is an A+ so all players are A+ and Wyoming is a D...

All of this because some people think college students should get paid (on top of their free tuition). I dont like it, but Ill be getting the updated rosters that will have all the teams and names anyway, so I am still excited. This was one of the my concerns though.

I don’t agree. This is a separate legal issue about using their likeness and attributes to make a profit on a game. It has nothing to do with them being paid to play at a school. They’re already paid by the schools in terms of scholarships. EA didn’t pay them anything.

Just thinking. Even if ND doesn’t sign then I can probably just create my own team and make ND with all its attributes. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Just make the damn game and I’ll figure out the rest. I could care less about updated rosters. Frankly, they should start off each new dynasty as a “random” bunch of rosters. One dynasty LSU has the best roster. The next new dynasty could have ND. That would cut all this garbage out to begin with. Not that hard people!
