Creating a Rivalry in Dynasty Mode?
- Topic Archived
Hi all, if there is anyone else out there that still plays this game like I do, I have a question for you. I have been playing NCAA 07 since it came out and I have a quite impressive dynasty going (20+ Seasons with multiple schools). I started off with an "Academic" created school and replaced Temple as an independent. After coaching at more prestigious programs, I eventually took on the job at the created school. As the years went along and I built up the program I got an offer to join C-USA, which I accepted. The only problem now, is that the school that I designated as my rival when I started my dynasty is a powederpuff program (Duke). If I include them in my schedule every year, my strength of schedule is horrible and I have no chance of making a BCS bowl. So, I am wondering is there anyway to create rivalries while in dynasty mode? For example, if I decide I want to play Georgia every year instead, will that game eventually develop into a rivalry game if I do it long enough? I am asking, because I need to play a rival every year and I don't want my "record vs rival" stat to disappear completely. Help?
Unfortunately, you can't create a rivalry by playing a specific opponent over and over again.
I'm not sure if you inherit the rivalries of the team you replace with your created team, but I don't think so.
This sucks, because rivalry games, regardless of the difficulty, are recruiting visit goldmines.
When I create a team, I usually make the rival an in-state FBS team, usually Ohio State or Penn State since I'm prone to making Ohio or Pennsylvania teams. That way I can work up to beating the powerhouse and they don't weaken my schedule later on down the road.
I usually recruit regionally, so I schedule regional match-ups year in and year out, and while those games aren't official "rivalries" they still maintain a high level of importance for recruiting.
Or, you can always play with ND, who have 6 in in-game rivalries, (Michigan, Mich State, USC, BC, Stanford, Purdue). For some reason, Navy isn't listed as a rivalry in these games, but the Dynasty engine will still Put Navy on ND's schedule every year.
Yes, I'm a Notre Dame fan.
