It really does seem like every season, the game changes dramatically. It's really getting to be a pain in the ass trying to keep up.

On another subject, it's crazy that all the questions and answers concerning all the numerous changes (and there seem to be a lot) are forcibly being restricted to 3 soon-to-be-monstrous threads. Good luck finding information in them.


1) We're trying to get the game to a point where there aren't so many changes. These will really be the last 3 massive changes we make to the game other than intermediate tactics.

2) Q & A will be summarizing these threads and entering the information into the Q & A searchable wiki so that there is one reference for people to find answers.

So does that mean, this bad ass mamma jamma can be some kind of kick ass Special teams coach?

Something like Deion Sanders when he was tutoring Devin Hester(Back when Hester was bad ass!)

Yes, you have to be >= level 55.


so i'm guessing that unless you pay for flex in this game you probably won't get a player to lvl 55. I boosted one of my players about 5 times and he wasn't even at 50 and he got alot of xp. It's sort of dissapointing because i was hoping he would be able to do something like this.

Is there a chance that those who have played 10 whole seasons and are at least lvl 40 or something a little lower can be coaches for those of us who can't boost our guys every season?

I'm a little confused because I don't really understand coaching attributes. What exactly are they going to be?

And the retirement of coaches mention the return of flex used on the coach, does that include the flex spent as a player? Or is that flex returned upon creation of the coach?

I think somewhere in this mass of text Catch, said you get the flex back after you purchase the coach.

I really wish I could believe you, but my experience with GLB over the past 2 years makes that difficult.

Very glad to hear it. That's an excellent idea.

I thought you had to use a retired player to create a coach, therefore the flex would have already been returned.

It looks like this could be a way to encourage more boosting. It's the classic carrot on a stick even though the benefits for the player being a coach is suspect. I don't blame them really.

Oh my, requiring people to pay for additional options in a game?

What the fuck are the admins thinking?

We could possibly do a 12 seasons or level 55 requirement. The level 55 requirement isn't changing but we could live with a 12 season option.

When you retire the player you'll get the flex back used on them, then you convert them to a coach.

I personally think this is going to push more agents out of GLB which will in the end will be less Cash for Bort & Co. There are just to many people that think this is a bad idea & I consider this a bad business move without adding anything pertinent to the game itself. Just my two cents!!!
