Good bones but a few suggestions

First and foremost, this game is already a lot of fun. All I feel it really needs is a few improvements to better both the actual gameplay and simulation aspects of it. Pass interference is my key gripe. Really takes the wind out of drives and is a bit frustrating, especially when you first takeover a new team and have bad personnel. Secondly, being able to change formation and choose where your personnel go on the field would be a welcome change. Thirdly, I have yet to experience growth from my coaches, unless I have been doing something wrong, getting my coaches xp is something that hasn’t occurred yet. Finally, maybe some end of league accolades or a player HOF to encourage retaining players and building their story and legacy towards your team. It might not have been what you sought out for when you started out but the potential of this game is off the chain! Thank you so much for making this.

PS: The salary cap forced me to cut some players in order to complete the draft. Is there an option to forego draft picks or can one be made to trade a draft pick for a pick the following year? Thank you so much!

Awesome simulator

Quick gripe: Honestly the actual game play is so simplistic I would love for more simulation elements to be added into the game. Maybe more in season options to shack up the roster like proposed trades. A more entrance level credit option for some low end free agents. Of course my larger idea is having players have a bust or gem potential with younger players. Everything is very predetermined. I can see the players potential in the draft and as long as I as the user am decent enough at the inputs there’s no downside to even one star players, since I can use my own personal skill to “takeover the game” through the air. Maybe if 1 Star QBs felt worse or couldn’t make the plays I see in my head, but that feels like the wrong answer the right answer sounds like having maybe a few more randomly generated elements to spice up the flow of the game.

Other than that difficulty complaint. This game is nostalgic as all hell to look at, and a joy to play. The way you manage resources and grow attachments to your team is exactly what I look for in a game like this. You guys really nailed this development!

Really good game but can be improved

Hi hopefully you see this, this is the best football mobile game I have played but I am finding some flaws the more I play. I am into my 5th season and I am finding the run game to be useless. I have a very good OL and a good HB but I can never seem to have success. I also see players stamina to run out very fast and makes big plays almost impossible. I would like to see a way to play defense like just as one of our star players. Also more customization and stat tracking would be great to see. I would love to see a custom team mode and longer games where we could make the uniform and team name mabey even hole field. For stat tracking I would like to be able to see other teams players stats and mabey even a mvp given out each year. I feel this would add more depth to the game and I would even pay extra for there’s changes. I have been waiting for a Mobile game like this for a while so I hope you take theses changes into consideration.

Thank you for reading
