Michigan State, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Colorado are the ones that don't have XP.

@a1736077 @ClevelandFan @UofIHawkeyee @bruin228

After we advance retire/rejoin the dynasty if you want XP. Remember it's 3 only for recruiting. You can do it this week if you had a bye. Don't do it if you played or it will throw out the results.

Also once you have XP you all fall under the recruiting rules with an exception. I will allow the OU and Michigan State user 2 more years to recruit 25 and Colorado can recruit 25 for this year.

Just to be clear, we should all get XP and follow the recruiting rules, yes? That way everyone is doing the same thing?

Yes in terms of 2 max 5 stars, you can only recruit Top 150 in your pipeline, etc. The only exceptions are the 3 newest guys to join who get to recruit 25 for 1 to 2 more years.

Okay just wanted to make sure, because reading through this thread it sounded like it was OK to have no XP and have no rules to follow.

Because, if that is the case, I'd much rather take that option of having no rules to follow instead of having the rules with 3 XP.

Of course, that would not be fair, at all, as having no rules to follow is much better than just having 3 XP (imo).

Just wanted to make sure there was no option to choose here.

In the long run you are better off having 3xp so you can scout.

We made the recruiting rules difficult to add another challenge to the game.

Final decision is up to @NavyHog

Just to be clear, I like having the recruiting rules. I think it is a good thing. I just think everyone should be following them.

Agreed.
The reason for the no recruiting rules was to try and level the playing field for when/if new guys joined and until we got the right fix for xp. It's our band-aid approach. We would like everybody to have 3xp so there are no recruiting advantages.
We've run countless seasons and there is no rhyme or reason for when the xp fix works

Initially I was going to leave it a choice, but I agree that everyone should be on he same playing field.

Where are you guys seeing that I don't have XP? When I go into recruiting it says my scouting is Level 3 and I can fully scout players no problem.

Also, I did not know about the 'Max of 2 Five star recruits' rule...I don't think that was mentioned in the 'Rules & Regulations' thread. But good to know.

@ClevelandFan

I just assumed you didn't have it. I know that everyone since you joined did not get it.

I also added the two 5-star player max to the rules.

Michigan State has been added to the post at the top of the page for your pipeline states. In order to recruit a player in the ESPN Top 150, they must be from one of your pipeline states

Hey! Appreciate the shout.

Eric Gordon I just added to my board last week because he's a FS and I need a FS. I completely forgot to look at whether he was a top 150 guy or not, so that's my bad. I've just removed him from my board.

Ryan Durbin is from Canada. I actually asked about him in the preseason:

Are we allowed to recruit top 150 players from Canada? Assuming yes since it's unreasonable to have Canada as a pipeline state? lol

@NavyHog liked the post, so I assumed I was OK to pursue him. If that is not the case, I guess I will remove him as well.

No worries. I think the Canada part was before you had the xp fix
