#115 | SimCFB | Recruiting Update (New Affinities)


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


This is a short dev diary, but I would like to announce another new feature for recruiting this season. We're introducing the following affinities:

  • Media Spotlight: This affinity reflects the desire of players to gain exposure through media coverage, emphasizing their interest in being in the limelight and having their talents recognized nationally. It captures the essence of brand awareness and the appeal of playing in nationally televised games. Teams can earn this affinity by doing the following
    • Posting at least 8 media content articles in the forums
    • Reference each article in the appropriate Media Affinity request thread that will be provided at the start of each season
  • Rising Stars: This affinity for reflects a program with a strong recent recruiting track record, indicating a team on the cusp of greatness. It suggests that the team is gathering talented individuals who are expected to shine in the near future, aligning with the idea of building towards significant achievements. Teams can earn this affinity by doing the following
    • Garnering a Top 10 Recruiting Class that corresponds with the ranking shown on the Recruiting Overview Page on the Interface. The affinity will be awarded to teams at the end of each season.


The following affinities will be added to recruits this season, but in smaller number due to the currently existing affinities across all recruits. In future seasons, these affinities will be distributed normally alongside all other ones.


The following teams have earned the Rising Stars affinity due to their recruiting class ranks from last season:

  • Tennessee
  • Western Michigan
  • Houston
  • Tulsa
  • UNLV
  • Wisconsin
  • Minnesota
  • Purdue
  • Florida
  • ECU

Please look out for the Media Spotlight request thread later today.
