Penalty Calls

Penalty Calls

Postby ZootMurph » Tue Oct 08, 2019 10:41 pm

I am watching games to try to get a feel for my plays and some formations which aren't properly set up in the play creator (like Jumbo on offense and 52 on defense). And I'm watching a game and it's 3rd and 16. We blitz and get a 10-15 yard sack, but there is offsides on the offense. We take the 5 yard penalty and repeat third down instead of taking the result of the play, which would leave a 4th and 25-30. Another time, on offense, we throw a 62 yard TD pass on a 2nd and 2, but there is encroachment or offsides or something, and we take the penalty and first down instead of the TD...As I've watched a few more games, I see this happen EVERY time.

It's important to have penalties work better... a team has a choice, and should somewhat intelligently make the choice. It seems no choice is being given on penalties currently. Simply, some penalties are automatically enforced, while others allow a choice of choosing the play or the penalty. In essence, right now, a penalty on a play HELPS the penalized team. This should, 100%, NEVER be the case.

Sorry for the ranting style here... VERY frustrated as a penalty kept us from going 16-0 in the last game of the season. Just saying penalty results need to be fixes, so that they only hurt the penalized team, not the team that did not have the penalty... it should never benefit the penalized team.

The code does take this into account. It checks the position of the ball carrier and if it's a greater gain than what the penalty is then it declines.

Some of the penalties happen before the play... like offsides and encroachment, so the play never gets run.

I'll have to debug it all and see if I'm missing a scenario... right now the defense does accept all penalties so I can fix that for cases where the result of the play is better.

I just checked and there isn't a "AfterPlay" check called if the pass play was a TD so there is no way for that kind of thing to happen.

I'm starting a new season in a couple of days... when I do, I'll go through all the games so I can show you what I'm talking about.
