First off, I love this game and it's been so much fun to play and create new teams.
It's great to see all of the issues WW are looking at and it will improve the game a lot. The sliders have definitely also improved the game-play once I found what works for me.
Some bugs that I found whilst playing on Xbox which I didn't notice on the list and my general suggestions are:
When holding your ground with the A button and then you successfully mark it, the game accepts the holding of A as a kick also, so the player boots the ball in the direction he is facing, often not very convenient ha.
I use the fixed end to end camera and when the ball is marked close to the goal line, you can't see what is going on. Often the game will glitch and all you can see is the crowd. When AI is having a shot for goal it would be great to press a D-pad button and the camera temporary switches to a broadcast camera so we have a better view. It would also be awesome if it switched to a cut scene, like on TV and it shows the players details.
Ball spills out of tackles more, player still able to kick and handball, although affected. Tackles only count when they stick.
The banana kick is more prominent in the flow of the game.
Kicking off the ground, the ball should go much further. The ball only seems to travel 10 metres. Kicking off the ground should go around 30 metres.
Ball physics, when the ball bounces after being kicked, the ball seems to come to a stop much earlier than it should.
Ball close to boundary, the player should be able to pick the ball up without running it over the line.
Custom competitions, able to select the teams, cross competition, season length etc.
In Team Management window under Add/Trade, all you can do is add or drop. Would be great if you could do swaps directly between teams. In this window you should also be able to view the team board, change tactics and assign roles. The scrolling of the board to view Mids, Backs and Forwards is annoying too. Next to the players' names should be their number and natural position. The current way makes it impossible to know what position they normally play. You should also be able to view the player's details in this section.
I play 5 minute quarters and before the game has started, the commentator has said 'only 5 minutes remaining in the quarter' several times.
Often Gary Lyon talks negatively about a team when it should be the opposite or for the other team.
The statistics window is split up into a few different categories; Disposals, Scoring, etc. Statistics should all be in the same section. It's annoying to switch between each. Also when viewing league statistics, the game freezes and can't handle it.
After scoring a goal, the crowd should be cheering and celebrating louder and longer. The chants are a bit jarring. Eg the Essendon ones sound like they're in a room. You can hear the one person like you're sitting next to them. Chants after a goal should start when the ball is about to be bounced in the centre. Chants should also occur during play when the team is building momentum. Sometimes when I'm the home team and I kick a goal, the crowd reacts as if the away team kicked it. More of a 'Ohhhhhh' than a 'Yeah!'
When creating custom teams which replicate VFL, NEAFL teams, etc, the commentators should say their names like they do on the original teams. Would be great to select the commentator call for each team, as well as theme songs tunes (perhaps with no words).
More team logos, AFL and generic.
Should be able to change the colour of the shorts independently of the jumper. Ability to add sponsors, logos on shorts, more patterns. Also can assign 5 colours as part of the team's style guide so each time you want to assign a colour you don't have to find it through the colour spectrum window. Can also alter the colours of specific items of the uniform. I'm also finding issues when I upload teams to the community. Teams will lose their assigned jumpers.
The XP system doesn't really seem to have any incentives. It would be great to earn team's historic jumpers, coloured balls, new fields, historic players/teams, etc.
Players below AFL or entering are ranked too high. Players entering the league through draft shouldn't be so skilled.
Thank you for your time. I really appreciate the fact WW are asking for the thoughts of their fans. I hope you agree with my ideas and can bring as many as you can into the game.
