Under rating threshold (show) Hey coach.. nice super bowl win. I know you only have 150 millions to pay for the team, but i want 60 millions. Last year i was a rookie, but i dont care, i wont half.. like the joker.. so dont care about keeping a good time, lets focus on me.. or after every good year, just start from the beginning..

Under rating threshold (show) Really enjoying the game. Would love to see some "new star soccer" style mini games for playing defense. Thanks for the great work!

Under rating threshold (show) Gotta work on that playoff bracket logic. Me and NE are both 10-2 atm, I beat them in week 4, but they have #1 in the division for some reason.

Under rating threshold (show) Also having the same issue as Werpac from the 2nd. Trying to purchase a DC and after I say "Yes" to "Fire" the existing one, the screen goes blank and refreshing resets it to what it was before I attempted. Google Chrome as well.

Under rating threshold (show) QB injury ruins the entire game! Either remove that part or make the standard backup QB A LOT more accurate.

Under rating threshold (show) there is a bug when the defender is in off coverage, if you do a quick pass to your receiver the defender will turn his back and run in the same direction as the receiver

Under rating threshold (show) also, WR's seriously need to learn how to block on the run, constantly just letting DB's run straight through

Under rating threshold (show) When you're offered to coach another team it would be nice if you could check how strong they are to help you decided whether to move or stay.

Under rating threshold (show) The dropping of balls when it hits a reciever is waaaaay too high. INterception rates are out of fcking control.

Developer response from siread

The catching stat determines how well players can catch the ball. Fumbles can be impacted by low condition and rain.

Under rating threshold (show) The randomness of the other team is infuriating. I score, then they just score twice and never miss extra points or field goals. Oh and all in the last minute of the game now they win. You need to introduce some kind of fail safe against that. It is fkcing incensing

Reduce the aiming arc to zero and release or throw the ball backwards!

Under rating threshold (show) The music might be breaking the game. When I change it in the settings, the game goes black. After my first draft, I went to start my first new game of the season and the game permanently broke. When I refresh the page I get a colored screen for about half a second and then its broken.

Under rating threshold (show) (5/5) Tecmo!!! ...with some simple sim/management mechanics. Nice way to get a little basic NFL action w/o the full mental investment required of, say, a Madden game. Management mechanics could be deeper, but what's there does a lot for replayability. All in all, each component is simple, but they come together nicely.

Under rating threshold (show) Having your starting QB go down for any period of time is death. Which I guess is accurate, but not fun. My regular QB is trash but the nameless backup can't throw for more than like 5 or 6 yards (unless he happens to throw a wildly inaccurate pass, then it goes for 15 but nowhere near the reciever). Given how the receivers will never beat their man inside of 10 yards, it's instant death.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't love that pass interference is kind of a fact of life for both defense and offense, but I love that New Star is bringing its style of games to football now. I hope you continue to develop it!

Under rating threshold (show) So, I am loving the game so. One suggestion would be perhaps to be able to tell which WR is which before the play? I got my speedster but I'm never really sure if I'm throwing to him until after he catches it.

Under rating threshold (show) You should be able to preview team you're transferring to, or at least ask for confirmation. Now I have to start worse off than I've been at the beginning, makes no sense.

Under rating threshold (show) The game is nice, but after a while every game you have a player injured and the strength of teams is not directly conceived by the stars they show. For example, my team has almost 5 stars in defense and the opponents had something like 1 star in offense and they still scored 2-3 touchdowns...

Under rating threshold (show) During the second year my players barely wore out between games. Now, in my third year, there is almost always 1 injured player game, even though I basically got a fully new team. I thought maybe it had something to do with using my players too much in individual plays, but I rotate almost every active position. How do you determine who gets injured?

Under rating threshold (show) Can you include an option to surrender? There really is no reason to continue a game where you are down 15 points in the first half

Under rating threshold (show) My players will slow down to the point of stopping while going for a touchdown, but the defense will catch up, and pressing forward seems to make me dive.

The stamina stat determines how long your player can run at their top speed.

Under rating threshold (show) One flaw: When you try to sign a free agent, it will tell you you have to cut roster if you're at your salary cap BEFORE it tells you you don't have enough to sign em. I mistakenly thought I had enough, had an injured QB; was going to sign a new one, and cut my old one for the replacement. Except because I didn't have enough... yeah.

Under rating threshold (show) lol wow... My offense is 4 stars, and this team I just played is 0 stars defense... This is the first 0 stars team I have encountered. Their 0 stars defense is the BEST defense I have played against so far. They have intercepted every single pass I have thrown, they run faster than my 5 star rated running back and wide receiver, and have great tackle ratings. 0 stars = nuclear Ghandi?

Under rating threshold (show) The idea is nice, however it really doesn't feel like a management game more like career mode in an American football game. So, I'd like to be able to not to play the games and the management side developed more. I'd also like to make a custom team and go through developing a franchise from no players. Still, this feels really polished and like I'm playing on the SNES or even the NES. Great job!

Under rating threshold (show) The controls stick, which often result in incomplete passes/attempts. I click, nothing happens, so I release and pull my mouse away to try again, then it spikes the ball. It seems like a pretty fun game other than that. I hope you can improve on the functionality more. I see you doing very well!
