    Hey, I was thinking of using Woosah's editor to switch around the star players on Rugby 08 from less deserving players to the more deserving ones. I was just wondering if you had any suggestions as to who to swap?

    AGREED 1000000%

    I don't know why Mortlock was given a star? Especially since he graces the cover of the Australian version.

    Plus, they only gave him a rating of 81 despite the fact that he's now arguably the best outside centre in the world.

    They really need to give him the tackle breaking abilities of someone like O'Driscoll, Umaga or at least Nonu.

    Anyways, I think the game needs to cut down on the star players or at least spread them around a bit more, and reward some of the tight forwards.

    As of the next edition the ONLY Australian players to have one should be George Smith, Mat Giteau, Stirling Mortlock and Chris Latham.

    England should only have Wilkinson and Robinson.

    South Africa should only have Matfield, Burger, Habana and maybe Montgomery.

    France should only have Jauzion and Chabal. Understandably there is a LOT of hype around Chabal but I think he's such a wonderful impact player.

    Wales should only have Shane Williams.

    Ireland should only have O'Driscoll and maybe O'Connell.

    Argentina should have Pichot, Hernandez and Roncero.

    Italy should have Castrogiovani and maybe Parisse.

    and New Zealand should only have Hayman, McCaw, Collins Carter and maybe Rococoko.

    Even some of the Pacific Islander players such as Rauluni, and maybe Maka or A Tuilagi etc. should get stars.

    At the least there's a LOT of quality players who need improved stats, and even more players who need reduced stats. Such as certain Aussie props.

    I guess it would help if the developers of the game followed rugby.

    The stars should be 'swapped' all the way into the rubbish bin, in favour of accurate stats. George Gregan rated 99? You make me sick EA.

    I would definately trade the whole star business for accurate stats and players in their proper positions.

    I wonder which genius at EA thought that Julian Huxley's first position should be no. 8?

    Yeap. I agree 100%. EA sports, get stats and positions right first of all, star players shoudldn't be that important if stats were reasonably accurate.

    Haven't got Rugby 08 yet, but I don't understand why Henson's stilla star player. As much as I like him, and I honestly think Wales need him back on form, he's been way out of form for ages. To be fair, he was pretty good in attack in the Aussie tour, still a bit rusty though after being out with injury, but still, not enough to still be a star player.

    So Henson > Hook

    Just remember that the star qualities are specific ones, you can't just give a forward a back's one or it would be stupid.

    There were so many Aussies this year, and Mortlock was way too bad in the game, as was Barnes (but get real whoever said he deserved a star, he's not that good yet).

    But Tuqiri probably still warrants it.

    we should give 4 or 5 or 6 star players to NZ, Aus, SAF, France, England, 2 or 3 to Argentina, Scotland, Italy, Ireland and maybe Wales, and 1 or 2 for the rest. Some suggestions:

    NZL : R.McCaw,C.Hayman,S.Sivivatu,D.Carter,JE.Collins

    AUS : S.Mortlock, G.Gregan, S.Larkham, C.Latham, G.Smith

    RSA : P.Montgomery, B.Habana, B.James, V.Matfield, O.du Randt, F.Steyn

    FRA : C.Dominici, S.Chabal, Y.Jauzion, F.Michalak, JB.Elissalde

    ENG : J.Wilkinson, L.Dallaglio, J.Lewsey, J.Robinson, P.Vickery

    ARG : A.Pichot, F.Contepomi, J.Hernandez

    SCO : C.Paterson, S.Lamont

    ITA : S.Parisse, M.Castrogiovanni, A.Troncon

    IRE : R.O'Gara, P.O'Connell, B.O'Driscoll

    WAL : J.Hook, G.Henson, S.Williams

    SAM : AL.Tuilagi, H.Tuilagi

    USA : M.Hercus

    TGA : N.Latu

    FIJ : R.Caucaunibuca

    JAP : D.Ohata

    CAN : M.Williams, M.Pyke

    ROM : M.Tincu

    POR : V.Uva

    GEO : M.Kvirkashvili

    NAM : K.Lensing

    I think EA should consider something like this.

    i think its unfair rupeni caucau gets a star, basically coz he acts like a twat! lol rauluni is more deserving!
  13. jawmalawm24

    jawmalawm24 Guest

    What version has Caucaunibuca got a star Ps2 or Pc? I've got both but he hasn't got a star on neither of them. But I do agree someone like Mosese Rauluni or Nicky Little deserve a star more than him.
