I'd like to spend a little bit of time today, very quickly, to go over a negative comment I keep seeing pop up in forums and on Play Store reviews. The topic is INJURIES and how realistic and how many there are.
Many people now have given me negative reviews or feedback saying there are way too many injuries and it's not fair. I've never seen more than 5 or so injuries on a team at any given time. In fact, at some point, you can't because the logic of the game doesnt allow you to have TOO many injuries, otherwise the game will run out of players and it'll crash.
Let's just say there's 6 injuries on your team at once, which is a bit high from my experience simming thousands of seasons of this game. Is that unrealistic? People who think this is unrealistic may not really pay attention to actual football rosters.
Let's look at today. Here's Alabama's injury report:
They have 4 players listed out for the season, another guy with a long term injury, and 3 questionable players.
Let's look at another random team: Ohio State
Ohio State has so many players on their injury report that I had to scale my browser window down to fit it on the screen to take a screenshot!
I think I rest my case.
