I'm just seeing who's in for the upgrade to FOF8, I'd like to get an idea on how many owners are upgrading. Please check in here.

I'm in for the upgrade, I think fof8 is great version of the game. You get to create actual playbooks on offense, it just feels like I finally have control of what I want my Offense to look like and perform.

Long live theCFL..

Got FOF8. I'm in.

What does everyone think of FOF8?

A couple things I really like;

- I love the new screens, being able to open as many player cards as I'd like.

- Creating an actual playbook with plays

own it, haven't opened it yet. Playbook is something i look forward to.

by thater at Fri Dec 16, 2016 08:51 PM

you can actually throw it to your TE and he can be the main target.

by JJ Smitty at Fri Dec 16, 2016 10:45 PM

Haven't bought it yet, but look forward to working with the playbook.

by Aamalin at Sat Dec 17, 2016 04:50 PM

Agree with Smitty about the screens. With the playbook setup and game planning you can build an offense focusing on specific weapons. That top tier TE will be truly deadly.

Seems that endurance is a much bigger factor and will be a bigger driving force when building your roster.

Seems also that you can better utilize a situational player.

by bbriders at Sat Dec 17, 2016 11:26 PM

Own it, haven't played it (except for CCFL draft) because game planning looks to be way to complicated.

by Masked at Tue Dec 20, 2016 09:53 AM

It's not too bad once you sit down and test it with SP. You can really target whom ever you'd like, say your TE isn't getting the touches you'd like, just replace some plays in your gameplan where he's the Primary target and boom, he'll get extra touches.

It's really fun and rewarding, I'd recommend starting a SP game and testing the differences within the offensive gamplanning, now defense is a completely different beast.

by JJ Smitty at Tue Dec 20, 2016 10:15 AM

in my 100 year SP league, I've noticed the Draft talent is up over 7 quite a bit.

by JJ Smitty at Thu Dec 22, 2016 11:00 AM

I have only done 3 drafts and without any tools or real analysis but have noticed the same, was kinda necessary though as depth/endurance seems way more important especially at all levels of the defense.

I am in season 2 of 2 very different and highly specialized offenses, makes for some interesting outcomes but have to say I am far from as good as REX so far.

by Ushikawa at Thu Dec 22, 2016 01:53 PM

I'm loving it. There seems to be so much talent though, it's a little weird.

Question about switching over. Will we do a complete draft to fill our rosters?

by enderthird at Fri Dec 30, 2016 12:34 PM

Will likely buy it and install at the very last minute, like every other required update since 2005.

Procrastinators unite!

Eventually.

by TurfToe at Tue Jan 03, 2017 12:13 AM

FOF8 is the future and it's a different game so....

by JJ Smitty at Tue Jan 03, 2017 09:49 AM

Overall it is an upgrade in many aspects of the game, where it really lacks IMO is the defensive side of the ball. FOF8 needs a major patch defensively as it's just to plain vanilla for me. I really liked FOF8 at first but the more I play it the more I realize just how much is lacking on the defensive side of the ball.

by FlexD at Mon Jan 16, 2017 08:42 AM

I finally installed 8. Wish I would have done it sooner. It's going to take some getting used to I guess.

CFL Power Ranking Week 12 2047

CFL Power Ranking based on FFF ranking formulas and system. Enjoy..

These come out every 4 weeks.


Image

Best possible score: 109 pts
Worst possible score: - 99 pts

Explanation of the ratings:

For those newcomers to the CFL and unfamiliar with the CFL Power Ranking/FFF rankings, these are based strictly on a formula using stats pulled straight from the game, eg wins and losses, Points for and against, turnover ratio, in-game power rankings and a bastardised strength of schedule. I only input the data into my spreadsheet, ie I have no power over the outcome.
They are relative rankings, basically comparing your team stats to the rest of the league. They are not THE definitive rankings, at the end of the season the best team is winner of the CFL Bowl, not the team ranked #1 in the rankings. The main point is just to spark off discussion and add to the league in general.

We have faltered a little

Wow, hard to see us as #1 with our strength of schedule, even if we are undefeated. We are more like the Western Michigan of this league.

FOF8 is out and we'll be converting at the end of the season

As always we have to wait until the season is over for Jim to convert the league. Hopefully this will give everyone a chance to play it and get better at the new version.
