Can I Create a Player and use them even in Coach (CCM) mode?

#1jackacidPosted 8/29/2012 11:27:21 AM
Let's say I want to create a player as a Safety....can I just put the created player on a team and play the coach mode (ie, play as the team), or is create a player ONLY for playing as the player themselves only?

if you retire them they are actually retired. so no you cannot.

So is there no option to create a player to add to your team if you're using a coach? Not that I'd mind, just curious.

So Create a Player has been reduced to playing JUST as that player, or nothing, huh?

Wow, that is a blow to my interest.

My buddy and I would make ourselves as the weakest positions of our team and play that way. Sounds like those days are done.

if you choose create a player you can only play as them. if you retire them tou play as a coach or another player they are retired for good. unlike retiring an original player like cj2k he just get's picked up by the cpu.

and you cannot create a player out of CC and import them in. but you can create one as an undrafted and work your way up. you just have to play as only them.

I read about this a while back and got worried. I like seeing my guy progress on teams, get traded etc. It's fun to see my fate lol. If we stop using him they leave connected careers and retire. So it seems anything with legends/ created players only works if its controlled by you. Disappointing for the sim fans

yeah i agree. i dont know why they didnt have it so you could just switch from them instead of having them gone for good. kinda dumb in my opinion.

THAT is the deal breaker for me. The fact that you can retire players and they stay in the league as CPU but that's not applicable to Created Players is inexcusable.

And Looman just confirmed on Twitter that there's no chance of a patch that will allow created players to remain in the game if retired.

So basically, it's Superstar mode or nothing. Wow.

that's really dumb... i mean i probably wouldnt have tried to make my own player and then switch to a coach. but the fact that they dont give you taht option is really dumb.
