Again, no experience, but may be worth some experimentation.
yeah, thats what i'm thinking it looks like too. however, we already have a hang time slider, so if the hang time SA overrides that, then the SA becomes counterproductive. i had hoped that if I was getting 60 yard punts that were just a little "flat" that adding hang time SA would make them hang up there just a little longer so the coverage team had more time to get there. i was getting a lot of 60 and 70 yard punts before, but now those have gone waaay down, given the opportunity for a long punt, since I took hang time from 10 to 17. i really wasnt expecting to have so many short/high punts. i thought the SA would leave the distance while increasing air time. If the SA overrides the slider, then the SA becomes worthless.Originally posted by Theo Wizzago
Can I ask if you've noted from WHERE on the field each punt attempt happens? I have noticed that if we're punting from the 50 yard line that my punts are shorter and hangtime longer... as opposed to punting from our own 30 yard line where the punts are much longer and the hangtime maybe not as much. I do not know for sure but have always suspected other SA's and VA's dealing with the execution of coffin corner punts might interfere with Hangtime/distance. TBH, I've never stopwatched the hangtime of a punt. It just seems that the shorter punts stay in the air longer. That's all I can add to this.
only talking about the ones where a punter could let it rip. once the code determines the punter can attempt a CC, thats a whole different calculation. i rate each PUNT as an individual play, and grade it it on how well it did in that particular situation. so a 45 yard punt to the 1 is great, but a 45 yarder from your own 20 completely sucks.Originally posted by .spider.
Got ya bro...
Can you divulge on "bunch of hang time"
are we talking 10, 20, 30?
went from 10 to 17 with the final boosts/AEQ. noticed an immediate distance reduction and the punts hanging up there a looong time. i wish the I had just left the builds at L73, because they were perfect there, but L73 to L79 seems to have wrecked them, at least 1 of them, as hang time is now overwhelmingly overridden distance on almost every punt. i'm getting tempted to swap out a hang time AEQ for a plain old eq, and lose the 6 in hang time even if that means losing the +2 in strength too.
