PostSubject: No.2 Seed Tiebreakers Question?   Sun Jan 31, 2010 6:42 pm

Me and another player are both 13-2, another guy is 12-3 but I beat this guy head to head and have a better conference record. Say I lose and he wins this week, we both end up 13-3(a tie for the no2 seed) and I have the better overall conference record and won the head to head match up. Does EA recognize the head to head match-up and conference record for the tie breaker?

I believe EA uses the NFL tiebreaking procedure

I read a few online message boards about the tiebreaker rules. Most say EA chooses alphabetical order over conference record or head to head. How dumb is that? Other gamers were stating and this per example: two teams finished 9-7, Browns and Steelers. The Steelers won the head to head match-ups and had a better conference record yet the Browns made the playoffs due to their team name is alphabetically ahead of the Steelers. Wow, if true, this is a major error committed by EA.

if that's true I should still make the playoffs over the Washington Redskins in FO league, but that's absolutely inexcusable and EA needs to get an ear-full for that.

I'll let you know how it turns out for me but quite a few other gamers trickled down the same gripe. I am also currently simming a online season and hoping their is a tiebreaker to find the results.

I think my league advances tomorrow from Week 17 to Wild Card week, so I will post results ITT. According to NFL tiebreakers, I'm the 5th seed at 11-5. But 2 other WC contenders are 11-5, so who knows.

I think we figured out it might just be alphabetical order which would suck. Hopefully EA didnt but it may just be that for tiebreaking.

yeah, pretty much EA bullshitted us and was lazy. I understand it's a beta test game mode and all, but it is not hard at all to implement tiebreaker code...there are no excuses.

Yep, I was 13-3 tied with another player for the no.2 seed. I beat him head to head and had a better conference record but he received the no.2 seed based on the alphabetical tiebreaker. Sure I am upset, now I have to play one more game I shouldn't need to due to EA's lackadaisical approach to follow one minute detail.
