What sliders are everyone playing with? Looking for a chance to get some holding on/hands in ruck penalties against CPU and win a ruck now and then.

All sliders related to offloading - 0/50
Creates more realistic gameplay and slows down the game

Attack , defence urgency and tackle ruck bonus - 45/50
Attacking team can build some phases so defence need to work hard and big hits are needed to turn ball over or a player to get very isolated

All team tactics to forwards and backs take contact instead of offloading to a ratio of 100 - 0
Creates more realistic gameplay and slows down the game

Tackle ability - 35/50
With all the ball the teams will be having this helps the defence

Break tackle ability - 20/50
With all the ball the teams will be having this helps the defence

I only play BE A PRO so don't know how this will effect normal gameplay
Was tested on 15 minute matches on PRO difficulty

Creates very structured play and scores are low with games being very tense
Possession is balanced as you can either make a big hit , ball is knocked on or taken into touch

After these adjustments my team possession went from 15 - 35 % a game to about 40 - 50 %

Can you post your setting by numbers will be easier

I am not sure what you mean ? ... I never saw any numbers at the gameplay options unless I missed it

Like this for example 0 is the lowest and 50 highest

High tackle 1
injury 3
offload change 8
Tackle ability 25

Something like this

Thanks for your advice, I am sure it will help the gameplay a ton. Have you seen many penalties with these settings though?

Thanks for the settings, it is better now, but still few penalties. Wonder what causes the CPU to hold on, I've seen it once in this game and a handful of times in RC2. I am hoping there is something in the game that could be adjusted even if it involves editing players.

Also the kicking has to be made harder, I kick it down the middle every time. Has anyone tried to adjust kicking ratings?
