2024 - January - Bug Squashing Game Update

We are excited to announce the January 2024 game update.  We plan to push this update out Friday morning, January 19th.  We spent the last couple weeks fixing bugs and cleaning up a few things from the last update.  In total there were over 50 bugs squashed.  Many of these were just text formatting issues we identified after the release.  But about half of the changes were substantive fixes to problems - some of them long standing bugs!!! 

Here's the full list of bugs we addressed since December's release:

  • Mostly Fix Punts!
    • Punt returner now fair catches correctly
    • Punt returner returns ball correctly
    • Punter kicks ball to correct spot
    • Tackler on punts is able to get to the tackle spot now
    • Ball rotates on snap back to punter
  • In Game Logic Updates
    • In-Game Logic changes on RB's tackled for loss so that the RB doesn't run backwards away from tackler and just end up with worse loss.

  • Training and Roster Screen Fixes!
    • Fix roster screen so that it shows full player names on position cards

  • Other bug fixes:
